Health and Fitness - 5 Things Not To Do When You Are Getting Healthy.

Lately I have been receiving bad news on what seems to be an everyday basis about the health of someone close, or a loved one of someone close. People have been having heart troubles, cancer diagnoses, and even death occur. This has lead me to take life much more seriously, and I have decided to take care of myself much better than I was. Over the Last two weeks I have made a drastic lifestyle change, and I've already seen a big difference by changing the way I eat.

Everyday life brings about many things that we focus our attention on, and sometimes we forget about our health which is the most important thing next to God. We put our focus on our families, jobs, and maybe even a little foolishness that we shouldn't give any attention to. This lifestyle change of mines has been working for me, so I would like to share some of things  that I've learned not to do while getting healthy. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you.... 5 THINGS NOT TO DO WHEN YOU ARE GETTING HEALTHY!

1. Stress - People do not know how stress can break the body down mentally and physically. Stress
can actually make you sick by weakening your immune system, raising your blood pressure, and causing all kinds of other symptoms that you will have to look up because I don't feel like typing them (lbvs).

2. Eat Sugar - Sugar is sooooo sooooo bad for you! I know that you might want that piece of moist cake, that milk chocolate candy bar, and/or that soft batch of cookies fresh out of the oven, but if you know like I do you would run. I worked out for years and could not get rid of my gut, and didn't know why until I begin to research. I found out that sugar is extremely dangerous , and makes it almost impossible to lose weight. I cut back on the sugar and my stomach is slowly but surely going down.  If you are going to eat it, really watch how much you take in and when you eat it. I prefer to eat something sweet early in the mornings so that I will have an entire day to burn it off.

3. Stay up all night - You must get your sleep! Lack of sleep can also cause many complications. Its bad on your heart amongst many other things. If you have problems going to sleep, try a natural sleep aid like melatonin to help you go to sleep. When you get the correct amount of sleep (which is 7-8 hours per night), you will wake up refreshed the next morning.

4. Avoid the Gym - Get your behind in the gym and work out! Exercise is so important, and I am mad at myself for not taking it as serious as I should years ago. I know that we all have busy lives, but we still have to make time to work out. I don't care if its just for 30 mins per day, hit the weights and the treadmill for 15 mins each and you will notice a big difference.

5. Smoking - Now every now and then I get the urge to smoke a cigar and sip on some scotch, but I gotta tell you that smoking is harsh on the body. We all know what it will do to the lungs, but its also hell on your heart. If you are a smoker I suggest you quite, unless you are the kind of person that can have a smoke once a month or even less. I haven't smoked a cigar this year, so I don't have any plans on picking them back up. I have always been a social smoker anyways, so I don't have any addiction problems. If you cant smoke one cigar or cancer stick every now and then, put them down.

These are my 5 things not to do when you are getting healthy guys and gals, I hope that this list can help you on your journey. We only have one body, so that means that we have to take care of it. Be Blessed!!!

God = Peace and Blessings /Devil = Anxiety and Destruction

How many times have you felt like you were doomed, there's always something, and/or that you will never reach your potential in life? I can tell you that I have time and time again, but I have gotten better over time. Its seems life is just one messed up situation after another, and when you come out of one thing you are headed to another. Well! This is actually pretty true when you think about it, its always some ish going on. 
One day I was thinking about my life and how it seems like I can never reach my goals. It just seemed like every time that I was almost there some Bull$h** happened (I'm trying to stop cursing so Ill spell my bad words like that). I was like my GOD there has to be more than life that this. When is it going to be my time? When am I going to make it? GOD spoke back and said "You have already made it". I was like hold on now, let me really think about what GOD is telling me. So I really cleared my mind of all of the negative things that has hap…

Motivation: Did You know That You Were Going To die?

I know that you just love the title right! Well I hope that it got your attention, because I am about to hand out some tough love to my readers as well as myself. First of all I am not making light of mental illness at all, so please don't think that I am after reading this post. I just believe that there is a cure for all things known to man. This might not come off as an motivational writing, but hopefully you will think differently by the end of this post. I have noticed a common theme among'st the human race that has to change, and that theme is the word DEPRESSION! 
I am quite a social person and I meet people all of the time, and it seems as if everybody is depressed. If its not from the lack of having a mate, having a mate thats full of shit, not having enough money, not having the home that you wanted, not getting the job you wanted, not getting the man or women you wanted, not getting enough sex, not getting the car you wanted, the weight gain, the loss of weight, as…

Use Your Brain More and Not Your Emotions

This is my first post in months, and at first I wanted to discuss something spiritual, but after having conversations with different people about relationships I decided to go with this subject. I can't begin to tell you how many times that I've heard people say... Just follow your heart, but I love him or her, and/or no one makes me feel like he or she does. Do you want to know what I say when giving advice about relationships? I say screw how you feel, you better go with what makes sense.
It is so easy to fall for someone who is intelligent, nice, and who looks and smells good to you. They just make your heart melt every time that they speak to you. So he sends you roses to your job and all of your co workers are telling you that they wish they had a man like that. How about the woman that has your favorite meal ready when you get home from work? The guy that you can tell anything to, the woman that makes you feel like she has your back, the..... well you get the point. All…
