Are You Satisfied With Your Life?

 

 

by

Joseph

Are you satisfied with your life? Do you feel as if you have all that you can possibly need (or that you deserve)? Or do you feel that life has more to offer than what you presently have? The way you approach these questions, and your response to them, says a great deal about your character and life outlook.

Some people are easily satisfied, they want for nothing and therefore lack for nothing. For these people, life is good as it is right at that moment. Other folks may not feel satisfied with their lives but they lack the willpower to doing anything about it. These are the people who settle but always want more.

Then there are the people who are not satisfied with life, but do something about it. These folks often belong to one of two camps: those who have achieved great things and want even more (sometimes venturing into the ugly world of greed), or those who know that they can go beyond their present circumstances and become what they envision themselves to be.

Both camps share a common goal: betterment. How they go about it, though, depends on personal attitudes (which can sometimes be referred to as "morality") and ethics. In other words, some of these people will hold to personal ideals even if their plans for betterment conflict with ethics. In the end, though, people in both camps will never feel satisfied, because they'll always feel compelled do better.

So, who has the happier, more fulfilling life? Those whom are satisfied or those whom are not? Which type of person are you? Just think about it: are you satisfied?  

 

“Come unto me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).

Diabetes And Your Child's School

Diabetes And Your Child's School

Submitted by: Vivian L. Brennan

If your child has diabetes, it is probably type 1 diabetes, which means that your child is insulin-dependent. Even if your child has type 2 diabetes, you will want to tell the school so that your child is supported during their learning process. You want your child to get the most of their education, and that means helping to make sure that your child gets the proper care at school.

1. Meet with the School

You will want to have a meeting with your child’s teacher, every year. This will probably take about 30 minutes to an hour to discuss the teacher’s questions and your child’s needs. Bring along information about diabetes. There are even pamphlets on diabetes aimed at teachers that you can bring with you.

Your child’s teacher is going to wonder, “Do I have to give insulin treatments?” The answer is that no, teachers are not responsible for giving injections. Many children manage their diabetes without ever getting insulin injections at school. Others get their injections at school, and are supervised by the teacher while they do this.

Help the teacher understand the blood glucose monitoring system that your child uses. It might be helpful to create a chart that explains what the different levels of blood glucose are, and what action should be taken for each one.

It is important to determine what policies the school has in place for diabetics. If there are no pre-existing policies, you can help your child’s school create thoughtful and inclusive policies.

2. Ally yourself with the Teacher

Especially with younger school-aged children, they might not understand the importance of eating their regular snacks. Ask the teacher to help remind your child to eat these snacks.

Your child’s teacher is the best person to observe your child during the day. A common occurrence for children with diabetes is that they develop low blood sugar before lunch. Have the teacher monitor your child to see if there are patterns of lethargy that should be noted and altered (possibly with an extra snack). The teacher can help remind the child to do blood testing as well.

3. Prepare your child

Before your child goes to school, be sure that they understand diabetes. You will want them to know what their responsibilities are.

Remember that as your child grows up, you are transferring the responsibility of monitoring and regulating their own blood sugar from your hands to their hands. During this transition period, you might find that your child makes a mistake, and occasionally misses snacks. This is a normal part of the growing up experience. Help your child overcome these mistakes, but allow your child to make these mistakes in the first place.

Consider getting a medic alert bracelet for your child, or similar piece of identification that explains that they have diabetes so that emergencies can be averted or cared for properly.

4. Help pack the lunch.

When your child is young, you will probably be the one packing their lunch to take to school. Be sure to pack extra snacks in case your child gets low blood sugar at school. Or leave some extra snacks with the teacher if you are worried that your child would eat them all at once. Pack some snacks that are quick to eat, such as carrot sticks instead of an apple, so that your child won’t have to

5. Know your rights.

Even though your child is diabetic, your child has a right to participate in every athletic event, field trip, and class outing that is planned. Your child has a right to monitor their blood sugar when necessary, and to eat snacks when they are needed. Your child also has a right to free access to water and to the bathroom. Your child will also be allowed to take as much time as necessary to eat the needed snacks. These rights are mandated by federal law in Canada, and by state law in the United States. If you feel these rights are being violated, begin by contacting your teacher to discuss how you can solve the situation. If this does not work, speak to your school principal, and take it further if necessary. Most times diabetes education will help the school meet your and your child’s needs.

The teachers, facilitators, and administration all want your child to succeed in school. Help them by giving them the salient information about diabetes. This can be an experience in ongoing education for you, your child, and the school staff. Let your child help in this education. If your child wants to do a presentation or project on diabetes, encourage them to share their knowledge. If your child prefers to keep quiet about diabetes, respect that right as well.

WFSP Foods, LLC Recalls Pork and Chicken Sausage Products Because Of Undeclared Allergens and Misbranding

by

Joseph

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced that WFSP Foods LLC, an establishment in Decatur, Georgia, is is recalling approximately 18,672 pounds of pork and chicken sausage products due to undeclared allergens and misbranding. The products contain milk, a known allergen which is undeclared on the product label.

The FSIS has designated this a Class I Recall of High Health Risk.

The USDA said the ready-to-eat sausage items were produced on June 7, 2016.

The following product is subject to recall:

  • 13.5-oz. packages containing “Land O’ Frost Simply Savory Bacon & Cheddar Smoked Sausage” with a “BEST BY: DEC. 04 2016” and packaging date of 06/07/16.

The was shipped to retail locations nationwide and bears establishment number “EST. 45411” printed on the packaging. 

The USDA said the problem was discovered in a retail store by a company rep and immediately reported to the Food Safety and Inspection Service. The label on the front of the product correctly identifies that it contains cheese. But the label in the back does not include cheddar cheese as an ingredient – the source of milk. Therefore, milk isn't included in the ingredients statement or in the “Contains” allergen declaration.

The USDA said there have not been any confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to eating these products. The USDA suggests that anyone concerned about illness or injury should contact a healthcare provider.

They also urge consumers who bought the recalled item not to consume it; instead they should discard the product or return it to the place of purchase.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact the Land O’ Frost Consumer Hotline, at 1(800) 762-9865.

Functional Strength Workout - Neutral Grip Pullups And Oblique Raise Exercise

by

Joseph

I'm a big supporter of functional strength because of its importance to everyday life. When you need to carry someone from a burning building or up and down flights of stairs, your upper and lower body must be physically strong enough to complete these tasks.

In this article, I'm going to present you with an incredibly powerful compound exercise that will help enhance the functional strength in your upper and lower body.

When I say "compound exercise", I'm speaking of exercises that designed to train several muscle groups simultaneously as opposed to isolation exercises that train only one muscle group e.g. bicep curls.

This exercise is geared toward folks who are in good physical shape, so please consult with your physician before starting any physical fitness or nutrition program.

 

The Neutral Grip Pull up and Oblique Raise Exercise

For this exercise, you'll need access to a neutral grip pull up bar; you can do them at a gym or purchase a pull up bar that can be mounted in the doorway of your home.

Now, I'm going to walk you through the exercise step by step.

  1. Grasp the neutral grip bar with both hands. Your palms must be facing one another to perform this exercise.
  2. Using your upper body, pull yourself toward to bars.
  3. After you pull your body , lift your legs until they are parallel to the floor. Imagine that your body has assumed an "L" shape position with your hands forming the top, your back the middle and your legs the lower part of the "L" shape.
  4. While maintaining the "L" shape, pull yourself all the up until your eyes are above the bar.
  5. Lower yourself to the starting point while maintaining the "L" shape.
  6. Perform this for five sets with a minimum of five repetitions per set. You complete a rep every time you return to your starting position (i.e. at the bottom of the pull up).

Neutral grip pull ups call upon the muscle groups in your shoulders, arms, and upper back. When you bring you raise you legs until they're parallel to the floor and then hold them in that position, you're calling upon your oblique abdominal muscles and the muscles in your lower back.

Combining the neutral grip exercise with the oblique leg raise is also an excellent way to prevent "kipping". Many of you may have seen kipping (or even done it yourselves) without realizing it. Kipping is that extra action of swinging and kicking the legs during the execution of pull up and chin up exercises.

Although the kicking and swinging of the legs provides momentum which helps propel the body upward toward the the pull up bar, this extra action undermines the purpose of the pull up (or chin up) exercise.

When you're performing oblique leg raise while simultaneously doing neutral grip pull ups, you won't be able to kick and swing your legs. (In this case I'm referring to a stationary leg raise; there are leg raise exercises that are intended to repeatedly raise your legs until they're parallel to the floor then lower your legs down  again, but that's a workout for a different article.)

Another benefit of the oblique raise is that a strong back will be very useful when performing powerlifting exercises such as deadlifts and squats.

 

The Extra Benefits Of Functional Strength Training

Functional strength training improves cardiovascular health. When your body is working against gravity (as is the case with any weight lifting exercise), the action forces the heart to pump more blood to the muscles that are executing the lift - which is your very body in this particular case.

Strength training is also a great way to burn calories. Muscle tissue requires more energy even at rest, so you'll be burning calories even when you are not exercising.

So when you're looking for a way to build solid, hard, lean muscle in your upper and lower body and develop fantastic functional strength at the same time, add this workout to your exercise routine.

 

WE can do incredible things if we rely on the power of the living God.

How I Barely Escaped My Family Legacy of Obesity

How I Barely Escaped My Family Legacy of Obesity

Submitted by: Lorraine Matthews Antosiewicz

Without a doubt, the cards were stacked against me growing up. My mother and grandmother were morbidly obese, other relatives were overweight, and our eating environment was not what I would call healthy. Meals mostly revolved around white bread with margarine, jelly sandwiches on white bread, bologna sandwiches with mayo on white bread, hotdogs and hamburgers on white bread, cookies and ice cream. There was the occasional canned fruit cocktail and canned corn, but other than that vegetables and fruit were rarities. Drinking water was never encouraged and it didn't occur to me that I needed it. I'm quite certain I was chronically dehydrated as a kid. Without a doubt, my horrible eating habits were the cause of my skin issues, lack of energy, depressed mood, and growing waste line.

Both my genetics and environment pointed me in the direction of obesity and yet somehow I managed to escape it; call it luck, fate, or a strong determination. I was fortunate to have a good high school biology teacher and I loved the subject. That's when I first realized that food mattered, and the digestive system fascinated me. It was during the eleventh grade that I decided to go to college and become a doctor which eventually evolved into a nutritionist. Food and nutrition continue to be my passion to this day. I now know that food can be either our medicine or our poison.

Over time, I learned more about food and nutrition, and developed the healthy eating habits that I have today. As a mother, I was so strongly committed to passing on those habits to my children who are both young men now. I'm proud to say they are both healthy eaters. And me, I've been able to "turn off" my inherited obesity genes by making healthy eating a priority in my life. I'm leaving the family legacy of obesity behind me.

THE EVERYDAY NON-NEGOTIABLES THAT HELP ME MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT

I eat three balanced meals a day rather than randomly snacking whenever. If I'm hungry between meals, I will eat something but I make it count. It's got to be packed with nutrients.

I plan my meals around plants rather than animals. I'm not a vegetarian, but I definitely like to eat plants better than animals. I eat some type of plant food with breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

I eat healthy fat every day including nuts, seeds, almond butter, avocado, olive oil, and coconut. I love pasture raised eggs (including the yolks!) and full-fat yogurt from grass-fed cows (unsweetened of course).

I drink plenty of water! For my size, I need at least 60 oz. per day and I try to drink more than that. I guess I'm making up for all the water I missed as a kid.

I avoid (with a vengeance) highly processed foods. If there are more than 5 ingredients in a packaged food, I scrutinize them very carefully. With few acceptations, I don't eat food products with lots of added ingredients.

I limit added sugar and never consume artificial sweeteners.

I eat mostly whole grains. I have one or two servings of whole grains on most days. I feel better when I don't overdo it with this food group.

I cook and eat at home most of the time. I do eat out occasionally but I'm picky about the restaurant. It's got to have healthy options on the menu. I never eat fast food.

I don't deprive myself. If I want to indulge in something gooey and sweet, I do it. I don't do it often though because it doesn't make me feel good.

I would never go on a diet. Food is to be enjoyed and appreciated. It's not something to worry about or fear.
