Is it just me or does Mondays seem to bring out the grumpies in everyone?

Today and for now on... I am pledging to be nothing but a ray of sunshine every Mon.

Maybe that way I can do my part and turn everyone's frown upside down.

I woke up to the sun and I have spring fever bad so maybe that is why I am all cheery. I am even wearing a yellow jogging suit with a bright orange tank top :)

All the negative status updates on Face book get to be a lil much...

Be thankful for ALL you have to do on Mondays and if you start the week off right well then I think it will set the mood for the whole week.

SO EVERYONE go out and have the best Monday Ever! Maybe try and make 2 people smile it will come back ten fold! Xo

I feel like I have jet lag minus the Jet!

I have heard they are even funnier which I can't imagine how they could be she is a laugh a minute! I find myself laughing out loud on almost every page.

38 is Great!

Yahoo!! Take that sinus/cold whatever you were... You didn't stand a chance!

With all my new remedies, doubled all my USANA, upped my treatments to 4 a day, eating healthy and resting, can do the body good! I blew a 38 no 42 but 2 pts higher than last time thats the right direction. I am very happy with my clinic visit today :)

So since I have been streaking and Garlic does act as a blood thinner I am stopping it at this time. I am bummed I was really excited about it. I streak on TOBI and I stop that on Wed so if the streaking stops I will see how I do on taking it 3 days a week. I want to start Elderberry... Anyone tried this? It comes in capsule and juice form. It has similar results to the garlic minus the blood thinning property. I am going to go get some this week I will keep you all posted.

I am loving my honey!! I have been eating honey sandwiches daily. Local honey too, it will be interesting to see how my allergies are this spring.

Yay my background is back!!

Happy Mon everyone!! Make it a GREAT day! Xo

Honey Do

Ok I am always looking for some new health tips and I got this info below in a e mail...
Well I LOVE Honey so I am going to add it to my daily regime. A spoonful of honey and cinnamon yes please, or on a piece of whole wheat toast. mmmm yum!
I also read that if you buy a local honey then it will help minimize your seasonal allergies. Which makes total sense to me so I am off to get me a jar.

Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases. I am SOLD!

Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.

Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada , in its issue dated 17 January,1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:


Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also, those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada , various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.


Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured.. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University , it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.


Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.


Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol. I'm going to start using a tub of Cinnamon Honey Butter a week.


Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.


Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.


According to the studies done in India and Japan , it is revealed that if Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.


Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks.. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial and viral diseases.


Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.


A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ' Ingredient' which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.


Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans also increase and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.


Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.


Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.


Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.


Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three times a day.


Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week..


People of South America , first thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.


Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restore s hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!

Shut the Door...

Look who's

Happy Birthday McNoodle! I can't believe you are 4.

Seems like just yesterday I was holding you in my arms for the first time!

I am so proud of you and all you do, you make me smile every day. I love that your favorite shape is hearts and when asked why you say because your Aunt Somer does. I also love how you answer questions with a thumbs up or a simple "sure". I love when we have sleepovers and I love when we dance and play dress up and work on art projects. I love that when I say I am coming over you warn me that you have a runny nose or a cough so that I know to not get to close.

I have so much fun with you and I LOVE you SO VERY much! Thank you for being the best McNoodle ever! Xo
