October however, is also a month of awareness: yes this one month is shared by Breast a Cancer awareness and Domestic Violence awareness as well as Mental Illness awareness week. oh yeah and these are all important as they all impact each other based on the psychosocial stressors which are likely to be experienced with occurrences. Get educated on what we can do to fight breast cancer, end domestic violence abuse, diagnose and treat mental illness

The Healthy Heart Series

image

Hey Loves!
With so many people focusing on health and fitness I wanted to take it a step further and focus on the “heart”….yes the major muscular organ which pumps blood throughout the blood vessels to various parts of our body.  To do so I teamed up with Heart Health coach and relationship expert “Sharon Reid” to network and teach heart health.

image

To kick off the first event we focused on the heart as an organ of spiritual, emotional and physical aspects and how to protect or guard your heart because the three parts can be affected by heart disease and other ailments.

image

The spiritual heart is non physical it is your inner treasure the center of your feelings, which is located to the right side of your physical heart.

image

The emotional heart is the deep emotions that you feel for or towards others. It is the center of wmotion and is located to the left of the physical heart. Being receptive to your emotional state it experience s many feelings from joy to grief. So any kind of disappointment,  death of a loved one, rejection is stressful on the emotional heart.

image

The physical heart is our actual heart which pumps the blood throughout our body and is affected by every spiritual or emotional feelings that the body experiences. When you are excited the heartbeat pumps more forcefully and when we are stressed or disappointed it wreaks havoc by stunning the heart with extreme shock. 

image

We ought to take care of our hearts by ensuring that we are balancing our emotions, eating healthy and exercising.  It takes maintenance to keep your heart healthy.  A happy heart keeps you happy and keeps your heart healthy.

How healthy is your heart?

Giving up the title “Queen of Junk”

image

Hey Loves,
As the days go by I try to eat healthier, by trying to reduce the amount of foods that include sugar, salt and wheat. To my dismay no matter how the day starts off good once I sit down to work I start craving junk food. So I have been training my mind to like fruits such as cherries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries…..even bought a bowl made just for berries (lol). I must say I will eat them all and still crave all the junk in the pantry or refrigerator.  A bowl of ice cream and a slice of cake will do me just fine and I will read and write until the wee hours of the morning.  Lack of sleep, almost no exercise or activity and constantly eating junk while working and studying at home packed on the weight.  When my dresses got tighter, I moved up a few dress sizes I realized how curvy I had become yet my patterns was yet to change.

image

I would have my almost vegan/vegetarian dish comprising of just vegetables and sometimes a bit of pasta or mashed potatoes and once in a while some seafood.

image

I don’t cook much chicken unless I am grilling/jerking chicken for a barbecue, however I will eat chicken when I am dining out and not certain as to what I should eat.
wwwwwooooooooooowwwweeeeeeee lately my allergies have been all out of sorts limiting my exposure to the sun, most foods gives me a tingly reaction in the back of my throat and I am learning to read labels as most packaged items contain more than you would think for shelf life. This Spring I was sick repeatedly only to find the culprit was not 100% natural juice as the label mentioned.

image

I will never drink another naked drink in my life, it is poisonous to my body when I wanted to eat better I thought it would help me instead it made me truly sick for over 3 weeks, urgent care and doctor visits. I♡me too much to ever poison my body…..on that note I had a food allergy test done and to my amazement my body was full of toxins as I was poisoning and shocking my body on a daily basis. Foods that should be good for me was of high intolerance by my body.  My vegan/vegetarian meals would have to change and so would my snacks.  Uh oh Food Management….I am giving up my title I am no longer the Queen of junk!!

image

My fruits are neatly sliced up for juicing or smoothies and they are quite tasty/delicious but I can’t have some of them either so the types of fruits and vegetables I use will be different going forward after today. This detox homemade fruit/vegetable drink:
celery, orange, apple, ginger, beet, cucumber, and carrots. Gives a full day worth of vitamins and minerals to one’s body and helps to remove some toxins from ones body.

image

As much as I love these fruits and vegetables and the wonderful concoction derived from their mix

image

I must remove those to which my allergic reaction are medically high and are an intolerance by my body such as: beets, oranges, lemons, and apples. Beets were supposed to help improve my low iron condition since I have never eaten red meat my entire life……oh well at least I tried. It hurts mentally to make such a big change in my diet and having to be conscientious of labels however I understand life is too short to live hurting from poor food choices. ****So long to intolerant foods and junk!!

image

The weight has started to lift it’s ugly heads since I have been more careful in what I put in my tabernacle. ..I am allergic to lemon so there will be no lemon pepper wings, no lemons in my water and no lemon cake!!!

Sometimes you have to Detoxify your body and your relationships

20140618-075834-28714866.jpg Hey Loves,
Lately, I have been thinking about relationships, I have been counseling others, reading about relationships and basically surveying the relationships I share with others. Despite the type of relationship I have determined that not all relationships are deemed healthy. A) Though we may have to be in a relationship with someone we may not personally like them, however based on the context of the relationship you may have to deal with them. So how to deal with that person at work with whom you can’t get along? Understand that it is ok to have single relationships with someone though you work well together you don’t have to be friends. The moment you know this and understand this it will detoxify your mind and body of unhealthy relationships

20140618-081003-29403558.jpg B)So you grew up with someone or you were the closest of friends with someone and overtime you realize the relationship is changing, you don’t see much of each other and when you do then there are disagreements about everything or almost everything. You are trying to save your friendship because you have history together, you try to hash it out however, it’s more arguing and hurting of each other’s feelings than ever, then guess what despite the years or time invested in this relationship understand that you will sometimes have to let go of some people that are familiar by giving them the latitude they need. Yes it may be very emotional as we are humans and we love familiarity yet everyone that starts with you will not finish with you some people become toxic you then have to detoxify that relationship.

20140618-082106-30066962.jpg
C) Sometimes you have your family members and you love them so much however, every time you get together at family functions it turns into rage, anger and family feuds. They always have something negative or hurtful to say to someone and it’s just always upsetting to one or more other family members. They sometimes do activities which are not acceptable by the family which makes them look for negativity to highlight at family events or just talk about unnecessary things which are likely to hurt the feelings of some family members. Ooh yes you need to detoxify yourself of this relationship, observe the activities of your family member overtime to ensure that it is truly a toxic relationship. Review the relationship to see why the family member is always acting out and inflicting emotional pain. Reason with yourself : is there a way you can reach this person, in getting them to understand the repercussions of their behaviors? If not then guess what, act slowly but surely remove yourself by telling your family member that being family is not a choice but maintaining a toxic relationship is a choice so unless they can curve or change their behaviors then by all means you will need to dissociate from their company.

20140618-084741-31661554.jpg While working on detoxifying your relationships it is also super awesome for you to do an emotional self evaluation to ensure that you have not become toxic as well. Sometimes it’s easier to recognize the toxins in others unlike those within yourself. Be honest when you critique yourself as you too can become toxic and vulnerable based on situations. If you are content with the person you are and the way you treat your friend, family, coworkers and every relationship then by all means congratulations you are engaging in success relationships. If you are not content then reexamine you and your relationships its time to detoxify.

5 Signs you are ready for Mature Dating

Hey Loves

20140614-204556-74756924.jpg No matter what you go through, even with the worst broken heart, after some time has passed you will be emotionally healed, soul searched, canceled out all that you can live without, you will start feeling alone, empty, in need of someone to share special moments and help you move forward. That is when you will find within you the 5 signs that you are ready for mature dating.

20140614-205918-75558408.jpg Time spent alone feels as if you are missing something, because you have spent so much time by yourself, you are now overcome with emptiness. There is no looking back however and there is no calling the ex now is time to focus on you and forget the past. (Yes too often people relapse and call the ex for companionship which causes the cycle to reoccur and delay moving forward) this I don’t recommend because if it was mendable then why was it broken?

❤️❤️💃The 5 Signs That You are Ready for Mature Dating 🚶❤️❤️

        a) You are focused on moving forward.
        b) You have forgiven the past and rid yourself of the baggage.
        c)  You are not constantly talking about the past (your ex).
        d) You are honest, focused and respectful of differences.
        e) You are willing to learn about someone else without comparison of your ex.

That’s all 5 simple signs however you have to be quiet to hear them and understand when to set your emotions right again. Dating for all the wrong reasons, say for instance your other single friends are dating ( oh yes it happens everybody is dating so its the norm) you may feel that you should be dating also. Stop!!!! Don’t do it we all have different seasons and if its not yours, you will only put yourself in emotional turmoil and delay the process of getting your emotions right again.

While thinking about this post and replaying the relationship counseling I have done I found the most common theme to be People talk too much about their exes and are not honest about what they really want. Before you start dating check to ensure you have experienced the 5 signs that you are ready for mature dating and you are ready to let someone in your life without holding them hostage to your past . Growth requires change, concentration and new experiences so forget the past, look forward to the future, new beginnings.

20140614-214207-78127916.jpg
You maybe feeling emotionally maxed out, anxious or down in the dumps but all is not lost be patient; get focused, pick yourself up, do some soul searching, reason with yourself…..do you like yourself?

20140614-214528-78328444.jpg Well if you like yourself, or even more love yourself then don’t continue to emotionally distant yourself instead learn how to cope with your emotions, take baby steps if necessary and let someone in your world ……….
Stay tuned for more on mature dating

Whoever said dating gets easier as you get older!!!!

Hey Loves

20140610-204238-74558870.jpg At a certain age it’s as if the dictators of society expect you to have jumped the broom or settled cozily into a lifestyle, compromising as best or settling just to make it work. Unfortunately for some of us (yes myself included) there comes a time when enough is enough and you have to let go of the familiar and head for the unknown. After healing and breaking free from all that seemed to drag you down and create bittersweet memories for you its time to start dating again. This time around it is supposed to be much easier because you know what you want and what you are not willing to tolerate. It’s like you have been given a sixth sense to weed out the undesirables of dating . This maybe because you are thinking just about yourself and your needs but what about the person who is interested in you; do you just shut them down coldly or do you give them a chance? . Well the majority of my single and dating mature friends are of the consensus that they should just be frank and say no this won’t work after one date and are quick to withdraw into their cocoon . Lol…as for me I will date someone as long as they have great conversation and similar interests because I know everyone needs someone to talk with about life. To my surprise dating doesn’t get any easier, the timeframe or the span on dating does get shorter as you get older however some people mature and develop better relationships based on past experiences as well as others are still not sure how to maintain dating, baggage and friendship. Dating at a mature age should mean that you have unpacked your baggage and you know how much you are willing to compromise for great companionship. To all my lovely mature singles: just remember dating is a 2way event so the other party might not be too thrilled with some things about you either! stay tuned for more on mature dating…….
