Liberty in Weightloss

In weight management on November 21, 2010 at 1:41 pm

In an endeavor to lose weight oftentimes one can feel bound to a strict regiment of food selection. Granted, it may not begin that way but after a couple of plateaus in losing wight and months into the dedicated lifestyle, I can imagine it can get boring always adhering to the food guidelines.

Surfing the web the other day, I visited a site about weight management. This site offered information about a brilliant cookbook of sorts that includes all the popular restaurant recipes. Sound interesting? It gets better! My purpose in blogging about this site has note been to entice and throw you off your eating discipline. As I said this site is about managing your weight loss. My suggestion is that you visit and learn how to cook your favorite Outback Steackhouse, KFC, Carraba’s Italian Grill, or the other recipes and substitute the refined ingredients for the traditional ones!

An example would be, if you’re frying up a KFC meal, substitute the flour and eggs for unrefined flour and vegetarian fed chicken eggs. Using natural ingredients as much as possible should enhance the recipe, not take away from it!

Visit my newly found resource for weight management here at this link! Get the recipes for the restaurants you frequent and cook them healthy. Freedom and liberty comes with increased knowledge in weight management! This site is a worthy resource for your time and attention.

What Does God Want of Us!

In Christian Living, Gospel Music, Uncategorized on November 10, 2010 at 5:48 pm

Giving credence to holy scriptures, we believe the report therein of the  sovereignty of the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob.  With that, have you ever wondered what this God required of you?  I have!  I beleive God wants my service as a vessel who will bring Him glory through holiness, lovingness, giving, and witnessing.  Consider the billboard hit song, He Wants it All by forever Jones below.

This song deals with God’s desire that we as human beings, His creation, serve him wholy.  So many times we may wonder what God wants, but we are apathetic and do nothing about it.  I came to encourage all to seek God through prayer, fasting, meditation upon the holy scriptures.  Hear what he sayeth and desires of you.  I believe he will speak to your heart, whether it’s in the scriptures, through a prophet, through dreams, or in an audible voice.  He wants us for his use!

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service Roman 12:1

Now that we know how to seek God for our purpose and his will for our lives, what about the next level?  This is an area in which I struggle.  Yet, I know that God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him (Hebrews 11:6).  I know that there is more for me to do on earth.  This scripture alone tells us that if we remain diligent, God will reward us.  However, that same scripture states that to come to him means that we must know that God is God through faith.  By faith I know that that next level of serving God will be revealed along with the rewards for diligently seeking Him.  I believe it’s just that simple!  View the final video below as it beautifully puts for a call of action (Shekinah Glory Ministries). 

God bless you!

Baby Boys

April 27, 2010 at 7:45, my son gave way!  Truly he and my two daughters are a blessing.  One of my biggest joys in life is being a mother.  I always knew as a teenager, given I had a girl first what I would name her.  I always wanted four children.  Technically I do!  One is in heaven (I shall see him someday)!  However, I did not know how fun it could be raising a little boy!  With the help of my husband and my second “mams”, my daughters, we do our best to maintain vigilant as my 6th month old grabs at any and everything!

He is lightning fast!  He can crawl already and stand himself up!  I keep the floor picked up and put him on a tarp to avoid him putting foreign things in his mouth.  He has learned to sniff as if something stinks (I taught him that)!  He is working on clapping.  For now he just bangs on everybody and everything.

We have been blessed with good health for all three children.  We’ve had a bout with cradle cap, but we’ve won that.  My son had a case of irregular bilirubin, but it’s now regular.  There was another issue that I cannot even remember six months in what it was.  I had to take my son back three times to get his blood checked.  Praise God, he is well!

I look forward to him growing, developing, and talking.  It’s obvious he is special and bright.  We are a musical family and you should see his feet running in the air as he hears any of us sing, dance, clap, or shout!  He knows good music when he hears it.

He is rough, heavy handed, and falls back on you.  I have to hold him with much assurance or else he could end up on the floor!  Most of all, he loves to eat my hair!  He sucks on it before I can relive his grasps!  It’s good to him?

If you are contemplating having a son with your spouse, go for it!  They are different from girls right from the start.  My daughters were active, but the boy has them beat, hands down!  I’ll follow up with his progress in life.  For  now I must rest up for his youthful spontaneity!

Nostalgia With Nintindo Power Pad

In games, Nintendo, video game on November 7, 2010 at 11:00 pm

During the Christmas season of 1986, I believe it was, I sneaked into the shed where my mother hid the gifts and saw that she had purchased my sister and I a Nintendo Power Pad!

I believe this contraption paved the way for the relative Wii, Kinect, Move and any others existent and popular today!  Can you imagine being a game tester for this device alone.  Not only did they have endless fun providing feedback to the publisher, but they also probably got paid  doing so.

My experience was sublime.  My sister and I played it for many years.  When company came over it was a source of entertainment.  We mainly played the Olympics game that came with the pad.  We never purchased any other games specifically for the Power Pad, though we loved the Power Pad so much.  I called myself exercising using the Power Pad.  I even at times used my hands to beat the computer when I could not run fast enough.  One bad experience I had was a foul smell one evening when my cousins came to visit.  I did not know them well and was honored to have them in my room.  I thought the smell was from some of them.  Come to find out, the smell came from my feet!  Word of caution, if you use the Power Pad, Wii fit, Twister, or any other game with shoes off, check your feet or wash them off!
