Just takes 1 person to believe in you… Even when you don’t… just one. Unconditionally. Non judge-mental. Just you when your broken down and vulnerable. Who will it be. Might not be who you suspect it will be. The great thing about friends is you never know who will pop in to make it right again. Be that guy or girl. Send someone you love a message and make them feel whole again. You might just save a life.
we wanted Chinese food at work today and so I wanted to find what are the best choices to choose from..they are as follows based from this site:
- Go Big on the Veggies
Chinese food really knows how to make the most of vegetables like broccoli, mushrooms, cabbage, bok choy, peppers, bean sprouts, carrots and more. Whatever your entrée, make sure it has lots of veggies! Vegetables add vitamins and phytochemicals to your meal; their fiber helps to fill you up; and they add great flavor and texture to all kinds of dishes.
- Keep Sauces on the Side.
This can be an easy way to quickly cut calories, fat, sodium and sugar from your Chinese food. Request sauces on the side to add as needed, or ask that half the usual amount of sauce be used to prepare your dish.
- Steamed Anything is Your Friend.
When ordering meats, vegetables, appetizers, and even starchy side dishes like rice, choose steamed, broiled, roasted, or lightly stir-fried options over breaded and fried options. Choose a stir-fried Kung Pao Chicken dish over the fried General Tso’s Chicken.
- Go with Whole Grain
Opt for steamed brown rice when available instead of fried rice or lo mein noodles. This simple swap can increase the nutrition and fiber in your meal while helping to keep your blood sugar steady.

It’s a rainy day here in North Carolina.
A perfect day to remember how important it is to drink.
Water is vital for our well being. I recall the dr saying if I
was not peeing often, I was not drinking enough.
So how much are you drinking per day? I try to do about 96 oz. It is best to always do what your doctor recommends for best results.
Try to stay positive with your mindset. You let doubt and negativity flood your mind, even if you think it’s realistic, you are going to sabotage yourself. You can’t find the stars of opportunity if your head is pointed at your feet. You have to be willing to keep looking up even if it takes you longer than others to see what your suppose to see. #IHEARYOUBEAST
…I am my own worst enemy….
We went to a wiccan wedding and my friend Angie took this picture. I actually look ok for a change. FYI…my hair is black and down to my butt but you can’t see it🙂
I can’t walk far ..yet…but I am trying. Hub and me the doberman went for a walk today.
I am/was feeling sorry for myself because I only wen a short distance and then I came across this article from The Leaf. I sit at a desk 8 to 9 hours a day and this made me think I am doing okay…not great, but I am trying.
IF YOU WALK FOR 10 MINUTES …
You’ll undo damage from hours of sitting.
You may have heard that “sitting is the new smoking,” with prolonged time on your tush increasing your risk for heart disease, diabetes, and even death. Some of sitting’s badness has to do with circulation—it reduces blood flow to your legs. But just 10 minutes on your feet can fix it: Scientists found that even after 6 hours of sitting, a 10-minute walk got blood flowing correctly in the legs again.
You’ll get a boost of creativity.
If you’re feeling stuck at work, don’t give the problem fresh eyes—give it fresh legs with a walk, and you’ll come up with more creative solutions. Scientists at Stanford found that people who walked, either on a treadmill or outside on a path, gave more creative responses on tests designed to measure creative thinking compared to those who tried to solve the problems while seated. So get up and get some new ideas!
You’ll help strengthen your bones.
Office workers have a higher risk of Vitamin D deficiency, which can result in soft, weak bones—that’s because D gives your body the ability use the calcium you eat in milk and other dairy products. A Vitamin D deficiency has also been associated with higher risks of cancer and cardiovascular disease. And it’s simple to get more: Step outside during the day. When you’re in the sun, your body produces Vitamin D. So a 10-minute walk at lunch could save your from osteoporosis and cancer later in life.
