Nothing Without You

I wish I could tell you this all makes sense. But writing this makes everything intense. Knowing you’re listening and hearing my words, fights me and haunts me until it hurts. Do me a favor and listen in, understanding the tough situation I’m in. It all started when I thought I knew, that fate put together us two. Troubled and worried, with a grin on my face, love had caught me in a warm embrace. There’s nothing that stands in the middle of this, nothing but connection and the feel of a kiss. Something could stop me, if I let it win but I know that everything comes from within. So grab me and tell me everything’s alright, I’ll trust you and love you, and make things right. Forgive me for all I’ve said, I know I’ve run, before this I know not what I’ve done. Whining and crying, I’ve given excuses, but nothing surpasses those foolish refuses. So love me, everyone deserves another chance, but not so much if love has passed. I know it may be something you can’t look back on, but believe in your heart and have something to lean back on. Call me crazy, any name you want. I’m ready and willing to move this along. One simple big breath is all it takes to get this started, leaving off the brakes. This dream has caught me by surprise but I’ve strapped myself in for the ride. Without the belt I have everything to loose, but everything means nothing without you.

God’s Plan

There are things that may seem to be true but I have yet to show you my glory.

I want to give you the world yet you only see what’s in front of you.

Don’t you know the love I have for you is much greater?

I have found the path for you, are you willing to see it come to pass?

There are things you have yet to see and I will be the one to show you, not anything nor anyone else.

Be careful who you trust as the devil is snaring within the area.

He wants to distract you and bring you into destruction.

Yet fear not the devil nor man, as either will lead you elsewhere.

Sometimes you may think I am not present.

You should know I am with you always.

Nothing will ever separate me from the love I have for you.

Listen to me.

Know that I am good.

Know that I have never left.

Know that my glory will be shown among you.

The time is near.

Adhere to my word and keep your temperance.

Keep your temperance and know I am good.

Just DO YOU!

Why do we moan and stay in places we don’t wanna be?

Our life shouldn’t consist of regrets when we have the option to choose.

We sit and listen to someone speak as though they are better.

We cross our legs and nod as a sign of respect to those who may even lack respect for themselves.

Who made us believe we should be doing these things?

I’m tired of hearing people say they’re not happy in the situation they’re in.

It’s time to take initiative.

Let’s have no more regrets and stop doing things we don’t wanna do.

It’s time to WAKE UP and do what brings joy.

Do what brings happiness.

Just DO YOU.

Exposing 5 Common Health Myths!

A low carb diet is best for weight loss.

MYTH 

Low carb diets may fool you by resulting in quick weight loss. However, that weight loss is usually due to the decrease in calorie consumption, not so much from the reduction in carbs itself. A low carb diet may also result in an increase in saturated fat and high cholesterol consumption. On a side note, diets typically fail and result in the individual relapsing and possibly gaining even more weight due to unrealistic goal setting. Word of advice is to make realistic lifestyle changes such as reducing soda consumption and increasing water intake!

Fresh produce is superior to canned or frozen produce.

MYTH

Frozen produce like berries may retain their nutritional value longer when compared to fresh produce due to the frozen produce being individually quick frozen (IQF) at its peak of freshness.

The body needs a cleanse every once in a while.

MYTH

A cleanse cleans you out completely, meaning the cleanse will take out the bad stuff AND the GOOD stuff!

Extra protein is needed to build muscle.

MYTH

Protein helps repair muscles, not build muscle. Fun fact is the Americans eat TOO MUCH PROTEIN! Too much protein can dehydrate your body and add stress to your kidneys. Excess protein must find a way out of your body, so it is then expelled through urine. Protein is often consumed from meat which is often high in saturated fat. It is recommended to consume most of your protein through plants.

A multi-vitamin supplement can boost energy levels.

MYTH

FOOD provides energy, multi-vitamin supplements do not. Multi-vitamins should only be used when deficient in certain minerals such as iron. Iron deficiency (anemia) is commonly found among women and should be taken care of to help reduce feelings of fatigue, dizziness, or lightheadedness. Contact your doctor if you feel this may be something you struggle with.
