Tasty Meals That Help You Shed the Pounds

Uncategorized

I credit Nutrisystem with a lot of things, not just losing a few pounds so I can fit into a dress I used to wear ten years ago (although that happened too). I initially signed up to the program because like a lot of people I decided to attend a reunion and immediately thought about losing a few pounds. It’s funny because you just know every other woman is doing the same thing. There is a lot of misshapen bodies being stuffed into too tight clothing before these things I think! Anyway, I signed up and did as directed when the meals arrived.

The first thing to mention is that the meals are quite tasty. I’ve tried other plans similar to this one and abandoned them quickly because the food tasted so awful or the portions were too small or both. It was with some trepidation that I prepared the first meal after my package arrived at my door. It smelled pretty good and that’s a good sign so I dug in and really enjoyed the meal. I felt full too, which helps to keep you from snacking later and ruining the whole program.

The biggest benefit I got from the program is that my mood improved significantly after I lose the weight. I always thought the funks I got into were caused by toxic people in my life or bad situations, but it turns out being even slightly overweight can have a negative impact on your mind. I felt better, I had more energy, and I noticed my focus improved. I can now plow through long work assignments in one sitting without breaking a sweat, something I could never do before. I notice I’m not complaining about mundane things, either. Stuff doesn’t get me down like it did before. So use Nutrisystem to lose weight and feel better mentally!

A Beetle Infestation Killed My Tree

Uncategorized

I never realized that an insect could kill a tree. I know that just one could not do it, but a swarm of one type of insect can do enough damage to actually kill a tree. That is what happened to us. There used to be a very large oak tree out back.It was far enough back that I never really noticed anything amiss with it. It was not until I went back to pick up some limbs that had come down from a storm that I knew I needed to call a Suffolk County tree service to help me figure out what was wrong with the tree.

Up close, it did not look healthy at all. There were splotches of something all over it, and it just looked odd to me. I had never had to call a tree service before, so I went online to a local review site. It is a really neat community site where people rate all the local companies. I knew that I would find the best tree service this way. Read More

Cutting Down a Tree to Get a Better View and for Safety Reasons

Uncategorized

We have a nice view in our back yard. Our kitchen window faces the back yard. We decided to put in a large bay window where we could have a table and seating to be able to look out while we have our breakfast. The sun comes up on that side of the house and looks great in the mornings. Before we could put in the new window, we called a Queens tree removal service to come out and take down a big oak tree that was just outside the window we were replacing. That old tree was huge and blocked the view from the window we were replacing.

After they cut down the big old oak, we kept a couple of slices of the main trunk to make tables. Read More

They Took That Stump Right out

Uncategorized

I finally had to find a Long Island tree company to remove an old stump. That stump was here when we moved into the house about ten years ago, and I always meant to get it removed, but never got around to it. I had no idea how long it had been here, but it was quite substantial in size. My guess is that it’s been around for decades and that the prior owner didn’t want to bother with it either. I mowed around it over the years and just never got around to doing something about it.

Frankly I didn’t have the tools to get rid of such a huge stump. Generally when you’re dealing with a stump of the size I had in my yard, it’s the roots that present the most problems. You simply have no idea how far they extend outward from the stump or how far they go down. Read More

Things Are Going Well for Me

Uncategorized

Of course I have been really working as hard as I can for the past few months. I have been on this new diet and working out really hard all summer. Of course it has been easy for me. My girlfriend has a rich dad who is a Peoria Chiropractors and we have spent the entire summer at Smith Mountain Lake. We have been doing a great deal of skiing and I have been swimming around a mile and a half per day on average. It is not all at once, but instead I have been getting up early every morning and swimming across this little cove and back. It is probably about a quarter of a mile across that cove and back, so it is not so much as to be a risky thing to try and it is long enough to get a lot of work in. Read More

A Walk with My Dog Led Me to the Chiropractor

Uncategorized

I have taken a lot of hard hits to my body because I love sports. In the fall and winter months, I have been tackled hard by guys weighing close to 300 pounds. I have been knocked over on the basketball court, and I have slid into a base more times than I can count. Not once did I ever get hurt to the point I needed medical attention or to see one of the many Santa Maria chiropractors in the area. No, leave it to me to survive all of those hits without a scratch, but to fall hard during a simple walk with my dog.

My pooch and I are best buddies, and we go on at least one long walk a day. Read More

Anxiety About Seeing a Chiropractor

Uncategorized

When I was young I was very active. I would run everywhere I needed to go. I would swim all summer long. I would ride bikes until it was too dark to see in front of me. As an adult I became far more sedentary. My interests turned to more laid back pursuits, like reading and playing video games or watching movies with friends. After a minor accident in college I developed back pain. I figured it would go away with time but it did not. So when I moved out to California I found a chiropractor in Santa Barbara. I was able to make an appointment right away and see someone the week after I moved in.

I tend to be a bit anxious about doctor’s appointments. So waiting for the day of the appointment was the hardest part. I worried that my back would feel worse afterward or that after all this anticipation and nervousness I wouldn’t have any change to my symptoms at all. Read More

Tracking Jewish History Through Headstones in New Jersey

Uncategorized

My nephew is majoring in history in college and I always enjoy hearing him talk about the various subjects he is studying because he possesses such enthusiasm for every aspect and era of history. I especially love when he enlists me in some capacity in his work, whether it is to visit a library in some out-of-the way little burg or visit a historical site, I thoroughly enjoy my time with him. Most recently he asked if I would accompany him across the state line to do rubbings on Jewish gravestones in NJ.

I was always up for a road trip and packed a little bag as I know when engrossed in a project, time passes very quickly and more often than not, my nephew and I have been surprised to find that we have spent many more hours doing a project than we had originally anticipated and should have planned to stay the night when traveling.

I have to admit, doing gravestone rubbings was one of my favorite things to do with my nephew and the history we had already uncovered while looking for civil war era headstones was truly amazing. While my nephew’s parents weren’t particularly keen on spending hours in a cemetery, I found many of the sites we had visited in the past absolutely beautiful.

While my nephew and I are always very respectful when we do our rubbings, we realize not everyone has been as careful so half the battle of doing this project is making certain we have permission to capture the rubbings in the first place. We also carry a digital camera just in case the rubbings are not allowed or placement of the headstone would make the job impossible to do without disturbing the surrounding area. We treat each headstone as if it belonged to a member of our own family.

The Proof is Easy to See

Uncategorized

My hair started to thin when I hit my 30s and I wasn’t sure why. I went to a doctor but he couldn’t figure it out either. I had the option of getting some hair implants or trying a product that was advertised as treating hair loss. Since I couldn’t pay for the implants, I turned to the product. I didn’t know anyone who had actually tried the product, so the best thing I could use to gauge if it was actually worth using was Keranique reviews from the Internet.

The reviews left by people were overwhelmingly positive, which is something that I didn’t expect. I expected to see an even split of people who were pleased with the product and some who weren’t but pretty much everyone liked it. Read More

My New Store is a Lot of Work for Me to Handle

General

After our oldest child moved out of the house when she reached the age of 19, I found myself wanting to work again. My husband rented a retail space for me so that I could run a store. I was handling everything without help at first, but it was too much. I asked him to check into some cleaning services in Singapore so that I can free myself up to take care of other things at the store. I had originally planned to be as frugal as possible and try to do most things without help, but you can’t run a small, but very busy, store easily without any extra help at all.

I knew that many of the people in our area would like the fact that I opened a used bookstore. I didn’t realize that people were desperate for this type of business, though. After opening the doors for the very first time, word spread fast. I have had a steady stream of visitors every day for the past six months. I spend a lot of time helping customers find books that will interest them. I often have to share what I know about the authors of many books to customers who are curious. Read More

My Father Taught Me a Very Valuable Lesson About School

Uncategorized

I had no troubles in school up through the 12th grade. I applied myself and got great grades, but I had no idea just how hard going to a university would be after that. I was not doing well at all when I first entered college, and it was embarrassing. My dad paid for O level physics tuition for me after he learned that I was failing. He knew that I was giving it my all, but he also noticed that I hid the fact that I was not doing so good in school from him. He explained that you must never try to keep it to yourself when you need help. Read More

I Am Doing Pretty Well at School

Uncategorized

Right now I am sort of in a mode where I am not really struggling too bad at school, but I sort of figured out how to balance things out and that I need to work at it harder than I had been. At any rate I also managed get a better balance of classes, with some of them vastly less difficult than the others. In order to get my computer science degree there is going to be some hard work involved, but right now I am doing virtual families 2 cheats in one class. The professor is interested in security flaws and that was one which I knew a little bit about, so I decided to focus on that. Read More
