What great visual perspectives! I am so happy and relieved to say that I am not the same person I was years ago where I would rather turn to a can or bottle of soda wherever I could purchase it or request it rather than a bottle of water. The old me adored Orange Soda, Grape soda, Lemon Lime Soda at any time and at any day but the older I got, the more aware I have become that indeed we ARE what we EAT and DRINK!

Seeing these photos reinforces and validates my reasons to avoid drinking Soda 7 days a week! Now I am done to once a month or none at all until the next family occasion. And I am even smacking my head saying DOH! (like Homer Simpson!) for slipping on two occasions; giving in to the option of soda pop at a barbeque and children’s party. But I am proud to say that Soda is no longer a natural option for me at home or when I am out and about on my own; and these photos above only help seal my reasons why. And that is to avoid living a Diabetic Lifestyle because my grandmother suffered from the complications of it and my mother is working on controlling it and I am not interested in following suit.

~~~ I wish you and your loved ones the best of Health! ~~~

What’s ‘THIS’ good for? #1 is our Brains…read on:

Antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids in some nuts and oils may curb inflammation and this recipe is full of these fatty acids. Inflammation is linked to age-related dementia. Blueberries, curry powder, pomegranates, walnuts, flaxseed are brain foods. You can spice up your salad by adding walnuts and flaxseed oil. There’s buzz about blueberries, for instance, for their memory-boosting potential. But berries of all hues are antioxidant-rich, reports Navindra P. Seeram, Ph.D., assistant professor at the University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy in Kingston. That means they combat free radicals, molecules that can cause widespread cell damage and are linked to chronic inflammation. Unlike the inflammation that occurs when you sprain an ankle or strain a muscle, the type that contributes to aging is persistent, and thought to be at the root of most chronic diseases, from cancer, heart disease, and diabetes to Alzheimer’s, arthritis, and osteoporosis. Berries’ beauty bonus: They’re chock-full of naturally ocurring vitamin C, another potent antioxidant that may help keep your complexion looking smooth by fighting those pesky (skin-damaging) free radicals.”

Wise words in this text:

“Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.” – Edward Stanley, Earl of Derby 1873

“Don’t put off for tomorrow what you could do today” – Thomas Jefferson (1700s)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

139 years ago, in 1873, Edward Stanley, the earl of Derby wrote

“Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.”

Wow. Can these words be anymore clearer?

What will it take for us all to heed of those words?

It’s been over a hundred and thirty years since these words were expressed yet many of us continue to wait until it hurts; many us continue to wait until we’ve been diagnosed with a disease; in order for us to start exercising consistently.

Many of us are waiting until someone embarrasses us or waiting until we embarrass ourselves. (please understand this is not to offend)

Waiting until we try 10 different outfits  in the fitting room only to find nothing.

Waiting until your doctor diagnoses you with diabetes or high blood pressure and prescribes prescription pills.

Waiting until your knees and back aches because of the added weight.

Waiting until you feel extremely lonely and can’t find love because of low self esteem…
The truth is inevitable.

If we do not find time for exericise it is inevitable that we will have to make time for bodily illness.

You have a choice to make right now.

Would you rather suffer from the time it takes to exercise consistently for at least 30 minutes 3 to 5x a week or put it off for 20 years later when you finally suffer from a preventable illness?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Don’t put off for tomorrow what you could do today” – Thomas Jefferson (1700s)

Choose Fitness First!

The time is NOW to take heed of Edward Stanley’s words and exercise.

If you are sitting here with 15-30 mins to spare after this

Plug in your Fitness DVD and do a light workout NOW.

Search for a 15-30 workout through your cable network NOW.

Schedule a workout with your personal trainer NOW.

Go to the gym in your hotel or condo NOW.

Your life, 10-20 years from now, depends on it. I wouldn’t want you to hear these words from your doctor: “You need to exercise.”

Words expressed after discovering signs of diabetes and high blood pressure which all can lead to heart disease.

My Grandmother died due to complications from obesity and if I can help  in any way; I hope this helps motivate you to prevent the preventable right NOW.

~~ With Love ~~

Forgive me for this topic of discussion or expression. This subject matter is about the loss of someone’s life. If you are in a good mood, a great mood, a positive  mood, a happy mood today for any great reason I want to sincerely congratulate you for that reason and I care enough to say that it would behoove you not to read any further if you are not interested in reading material that speaks of a negative outcome. I do not want to ruin your mood. I do not wish to rain in your parade.

I created the blog Inspired Thought Inspired Action with the intention to share all the great and positive quotes, phrases, messages that inspires my thoughts and in turn inspires my actions which may in turn inspire you to do the same.

This blog is meant to be a positive environment for my fellow bloggers to visit….(can you feel the “but” coming…)

BUT life is not a “box of chocolates”. Life is of the good and bad. And the good and bad must be discussed to reinforce the beneficial reasons why we should aim to live a life full of good ways and educate ourselves and our loved ones on the negative outcomes if one chooses to do the opposite.

This is the reason why I am about to discuss the topic I watched on the The Dr. Phil Show.

We must learn from the bad in order to maintain reasons why we should always live for good.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here is a summary of the Dr. Phil Episode I watched this morning

Las Vegas showgirl Deborah Flores-Narvaez was allegedly strangled by her boyfriend, Cirque Du Soleil dancer, Jason Griffith. Authorities claim that after she was killed, Jason and his roommate put Deborah’s body in a tub and poured cement over it. Deborah and Jason had a history of domestic violence claims in their relationship, and now Jason sits in jail charged with her murder. His mother, Charlene, and sister, Samantha, say Jason wouldn’t hurt anyone, and if he did kill Deborah, it must have been in self-defense. Charlene says she believes Deborah was the violent one, and that her son’s video recording of Deborah proves it. Deborah’s mother, Elsie, and sister, Celeste, who believe Jason killed Deborah, meet Jason’s family for the first time on Dr. Phil’s stage. And, Jane Velez-Mitchell, host of her self-titled show on HLN, weighs in on the investigation.

Please take the time to watch clips of the episode to understand my response.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After watching this episode, I was completely in shock spiritually and mentally.

I am completely amazed by how the mother and sister continues to defer from the fact that this man should still be addressed as guilty for either leading the decision or taking part in the decision to cement and dismember his girlfriend with his friend…..no matter if this situation started as  self defense.

Wow…:Shaking my head:… Self defense can NOT be used as an excuse to take such extreme actions.

My heart hurts for this lost life!

No matter how much there is talk about her being an agressor. No matter how many times you show videos of her provoking him, of her swearing at him or other people!

No one…NO ONE deserves to lose their life in such a cruel and untimely way!

Is the mother and sister’s love for him blinding them from common sense?

Any man and any woman can provoke their boyfriend or girlfriend into a rage. And that boyfriend and girlfriend has a choice…

To yell back or not to yell back…..

To stay put and argue or not to stay put and not to argue….

To walk away or not to walk away….

To put their hands on that person or not put their hands on that person….

To strangle or not to strangle…

He made a choice and a witness confessed that he put his hands on her. And a clear point was made that its takes effort to strangle a person to death. During that time of effort… he could of stopped himself if he allowed common sense to kick in and instead choose to pay a smaller price for his actions rather than the risk of facing life in prison.

I keep hearing self defense..I haven’t heard anything about a knife or a gun at the scene of the crime. What was his reason for self defense if he was not threatened with a gun or knife/weapon?

Dr. Phil made a clear point that Jason was at least 50lbs heavier than her….how can her smacks and hits compare to Jason’s???

A TRUE man will never hit a woman….because he knows that its the **right thing to do.**

He will respect the fact that most men are biological stronger than women and it is not right to take advantage of that……It’s not right to abuse that fact.

But of course it’s not right for anyone to put their hands on anyone! Young, fit or old…. Girl, boy, man or woman…. No one has a right to put their hands on anyone! (parents spanking is another topic of discussion…)

And even if she was doing wrong by hitting him, it is still not right to retaliate by hitting her back.

My heart hurts for Deborah’s sister and mother. I am imagining being in their shoes. I am imagining how frustrating and hurtful it is that the mother and daughter of my sister’s murderer are not responding with a pure sense of empathy for the fact that he took part in cementing and dismembering the body of a human being.

How can someone NOT deserve life in prison for that??!!! Self defense or not!

How can someone NOT deserve life in prison for taking part or leading the decision to cement and dismember the body of human being???!!!

No excuse is ever good enough to act in such a way!

I am completely dumbfounded and saddened. I can never be that mother….. I can never be that sister. No matter how great of a man he was yesterday, last month, last year. A person can change in an instant.. A person can change into someone amazingly better or amazingly digress to someone unpredictable and unrecognizable.

And one must not respond in denial and defend a person’s wrongful ways.

Prevention…

We need to learn from this unfortunate story and practice prevention.

How can stories like this be prevented?

What does it take to prevent a man and woman from ending up in such a toxic relationship?

What will it take to prevent our son and our daughter from growing up into such a toxic relationship and into such a negative outcome?

What will it take to prevent this history from repeating itself?
