I am no expert but I’ve found a variety of thing that work for me.  Everyone has to find their own path and should consult their physician and a nutritionist if possible.  I know eating right and exercising is necessary to stay and keep healthy and feel good about you.  There are days when it’s difficult, whether it is because of personal obligations or if its just a difficult day.  The link below has a list of various web sites, recipes and tips for becoming a healthier you.  This is in no way a substitute for a physicians or a nutritionist.  Again always consult your physician before changing your eating habits, going on a diet or beginning exercise regiment.

Good luck and find your inspiration!

Anti Aging Foods
Incorporating foods high in antioxidants (which protect against free radicals) into your diet could ward off the effects of aging. Antioxidants are found in fruits and vegetables. Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC), developed by USDA is a measure of antioxidant content of foods. The following foods are super foods as they contain up to 20 times the antioxidant content of other foods. So these foods, if included in daily diet (up to 3000 ORAC) can be good for your anti-aging effort. ORAC of some of the super foods are given below:

The Truth About Zero-Calorie Food

You can’t net a negative calorie balance by eating “zero-calorie” foods. But don’t rule them out, either. Read this article from everyday health to understand why.

Deb’s Coupon Corner Tips
Don’t shop for need; shop for sale.

  1. Shop all sales circulars for sale items and match items to coupons from Sunday’s news the sale!
  2. The key is to match coupons to good sales.
  3. The idea is to use your coupons when an item is on sale and stock up when something its rock bottom price.
  4. Most grocery stores double coupons up to $1.00.
  5. Buy more than one Sunday newspaper to double your coupon stock.
  6. Look for in house specials and clearance items at most stores you can use coupons for these items as well.
  7. Think of coupons as cash. You will be more motivated to use them!

[/tab_item] [tab_item title=”Hope and Inspiration”]Sometimes we need words of inspirations to just keep us going. There are days when we feel like everything is going wrong even when we are doing ever thing in our power to make everything go right. There are day when we just need a little push to keep us going in the right direction, these words are here to give us hope and keep us pressing on. Life is full of struggles and disappointments, but life is also full of hope and thoughts and memories of kind acts from the people who we know and meet for just a second that reminds us that things are going to work out just fine. These are words to remind us of those moments.

Inspire Your Soul

“If there is no struggle, there is not progress”. Frederick Douglass

“The greatest inspiration is often born of desperation”. Comer Cotrell

Attempting to Reach a Goal Unknown

I would rather stumble a thousand times
Attempting to reach a goal
Than to sit in a crowd
In my weather-proof shroud
A shriveled and self-satisfied soul.
I would rather be doing and daring
All of my error-filled days
Than watching, and waiting, and dying
Smug in my perfect ways.
I would rather wonder and blunder
Stumbling blindly ahead
Than for safety’s sake
Lest I make a mistake
Be sure, be safe, be dead.

Don’t Quit Unknown

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit…
Rest if you must—but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he’d stuck it out.
Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems afar.
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,
It’s when things go wrong
That you mustn’t quit.

Serenity Prayer Reinhold Niebuhr

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

Dick Inness

To fully live,
to fully love,
to get close to someone,
Is to become vulnerable
and risk getting hurt.
But to stay in my shell
where I feel comfortable and safe
is a greater risk by far—
For to risk nothing
is to risk everything.
Instead of living fully
I’ll be dying slowly
And never will discover
the joy of loving nor the high
achievement of becoming
all that I was meant
and created to be.
