This island girl is back! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!Read More
Last year I weighed 125 and right now I weigh about 150. The thing is, though, those numbers sound bad to some people, but, when I looked at some pictures and mostly my measurements, I realized that I am slimmer and fitter than when I weighed less. Muscle does weigh more than fat. 😍✨Read More
I love Franicia’s hair! I better — I’m her husband after all! Her hair is very thick and curly. She tells me that, if she did not take great care of her hair, though, her hair would be very frizzy and bushy. So many ladies with hair similar to Franicia’s love to touch and smell Franicia’s hair and ask her what she puts in her hair.Read More
I wanted to be able to add more pictures from some moments outside that I took pictures last week. Since I had a rough first trimester, I wasn't able to be outside with the children hardly at all. They were so excited to share so many things with me!Read More
Praise God that I’m phenomenally better. 😊🎉🙏
After losing a lot of weight due to being nauseated (thankful no throwing up) and not being able to eat much for a good part of my first trimester, I’m so happy to see that my body has improved since reaching week fourteen or somewhere along there. 😀 I’ve gained twelve pounds in just a few weeks which says a lot since I dipped into the 80’s.Read More
I have always found it interesting that the intake forms at doctors' offices ask so much about the patients' family medical history. While I knew that I would have a tendency to experience many of the health issues that my ancestors faced, I thought that many of the medical problems that they faced were due to poor health choices or environmental toxins.Read More
Even though I’m a relatively healthy 36-year old...I mean young man, I almost died at the end of January this year due to a clot deep in my right calf (deep vein thrombosis, or DVT) that broke up and went through my heart and peppered both of my lungs (pulmonary embolism, or PE).
There are some things that I’ve been doing differently to prevent being hospitalized again or dying from another DVT and PE.Read More
...I not only went through another and much longer “boot camp” phase but did various obstacle courses, swam, boxed, wrestled, ran in boots with a rifle in tow, trained with Navy SEALs because my run times weren't fast enough, or endured the dreaded “Swim PEP,” an alternative to the regular physical fitness program conducted in a pool, with the SEALs because I had various injuries.Read More
There's a man we know very well who eats almost exclusively organic and minimally-processed food, only drinks water, doesn't use any tobacco products, doesn't drink alcohol, exercises regularly, brushes his teeth at least twice a day and flosses regularly. He has a very low amount of body fat and is in great shape. In college, he was part of a strength competition at the Army-Navy game in 2000 and completed 50 one-armed push-ups. This same man, at the age of 36, narrowly escaped death just a month ago.Read More
While buying frozen corn has it’s conveniences, buy organic corn when it’s in season. That way you get a better price and eat it while it tastes best.
If you’ve never cooked fresh corn, you’re in for a special treat. It is amazingly delicious, quick, and very simple.Read More
Working out with your family is fun! Watch Tim and his children as they exercise together. They'll do interval training with 4 stations -- pushups, rebounding, lunges, and crunches. At the end, they finish with bridges.Read More
Exercising can be a lot of fun when you exercise with your friends. Among other things, they can help push you further than you'd push yourself. They can also help keep your mind off the pain that exercise sometimes brings. You know what they say, though, "No Pain = No Gain**."Read More
