Eating Live Food

live foodI read this from a friends Instagram and I’m ad-libbing, but here’s the premise, “Eat live food and live. Eat dead food, and die.” Thank you Sandra for sharing that wisdom.

Kind of brings home the point rather quickly! So the past 2 days I’ve only eaten live food and protein shakes. I’ve also walked 30 minutes every day too! I’ve read over and over again that we have to keep the body moving. Stay Active! I think this is key too.

I’m down 3 lbs and .6% in body fat! WhooHoo! I feel better, slept fantastic last night, and don’t feel sluggish like before.

It’s the process foods and SUGAR that are killing every one of us slowing over time.Don’t you agree? But we keep eating the same things that are killing us, or at least I do. I shouldn’t speak for anyone by myself.

Gosh I don’t want to turn this fast healthy train back around to that!

I want to turn back time, and be active, healthy, and walking up a mountain again! I can already smell the taste of victory, and that my dear friend, will keep me going!

Love – Deanna


Senior Picture! 1981.  Gosh I look so young! Brings back a lot of fun and happy times. I went to H.S. in Yuma Arizona.  I loved H.S.  I was smart, had lots of good friends, and we had a blast.  Music made the difference for me. Playing piano and singing in the choirs/groups made it fun despite the tough teachers that made me work harder. LOL. Thanks to everyone in high school for making it a GREAT memory!!

Life is Good

My motto lately is that life is good. LIFE IS GOOD – it really is. It all depends how we look at life. Are we looking through negative glasses or positive glasses.

I recently went to the eye doctor to get contacts. And of course, my vision has changed in the past 2 years since I’ve seen him. He is always been a quiet, reserved kind of doctor. But I had the pleasure of making him laugh out loud about something I said about my age and eyesight being hand in hand. He busted out laughing because he is the same age as I am! Who knew?? (smile)

But getting back to the story – I thought is was funny that my eye sight is negative to wear contacts, but to get reading glasses I have to buy positive glasses!?!  Now how confusing is that? Well not really confusing. If I am wearing negative contacts I need to counter act that with a positive to read. Isn’t life exactly like that too? Sometimes we need to think about the positive when we are in a negative situation or a bad time in our lives. This is what I know….We chose what glasses to put on and in that choice, we will either surround ourselves with more negatives or more positives. I personally choose the POSITIVE.

When you are having a rough time, going through a storm, dealing with difficult people, or even just feeling down – say to yourself  “What glasses am I wearing right now?”  “I can’t see clearly with those glasses on, so I’m switching to the other glasses!”

Always know – you will make it through whatever problem you are going through. It is part of life. It is a part of growing your soul. But you can choose what glasses to wear!!!

Love and Light,
