Springing into Spring

Spring has finally Sprung!

Here we are, at the end of a another winter and the beginning of another Spring in the Midwest. The outdoors is calling to us and we must go. Go and clean up fall’s leftovers, and winter’s rot. Go and clear the Earth’s great gift…the ground. Readying our planting areas for new gardens of sustenance and bountiful blooming flowers. Cleaning, Clearing, Digging, Fertilizing, Planting; all the verbs I love and dread.

I am torn…love to watch my flowering gardens grow and bloom; hate doing all the prep work needed to get to that great end! I am sure I am not alone in this. I have decided to dedicate this quarter’s blog to the great outdoors and all the great products out there that help us achieve our end goal.

There are countless gardening magazines, articles, blogs, sales ads etc… Here I will help you find what you’re looking for quickly and to buy with confidence and savings. Come on in, and take a look. This is your one stop online ordering website. Enjoy and happy growing!

New Year-New You

New Year-New You!

Welcome 2018 and a Better You. The Best you that you can and want to be!

The Holidays are behind us. The New Year is in front. If you are in my reality I have 1 main goal. The ongoing struggle with my weight is a goal for 2018. I know what I have to do, it is a matter of DOING it. This post is to let you know, you are not alone! Together we can do this, and be successful together. This blog is going to contain the greatest and newest information, theories, practices and products that have proven affects. I will not waste your time (or mine) with the latest crazes, or the Drop Fast and Forever promises. These pages will contain information for the serious.  For most of us, physical trouble is not our only issues. Emotional, psychological, internal, spiritual assistance are also necessary. Are you excited? I AM!

Let’s do this, let’s do this together! Let us make the New Year the year of the NEW YOU!

MedicineNet.com states: Emotional eating is the practice of consuming large quantities of food — usually “comfort” or junk foods — in response to feelings instead of hunger. Experts estimate that 75% of overeating is caused by emotions.

There is a difference between Emotional eating and Binge Eating. Also according to MedicineNet.com: The primary difference between emotional eating and binge eating involves the amount of food that is consumed.

While both may involve a sense of trouble controlling a craving for food, emotional eating may involve consuming from moderate to great amounts of food and may be the only symptom that a person has or be part of an emotional illness like depression, bulimia, or binge eating disorder. Binge eating disorder is a distinctive mental illness that is characterized by recurrent episodes of compulsive overeating, in that affected people uncontrollably eat an amount of food that is significantly larger than that which most people eat in a distinct period of time (for example, over two hours), even when they are not hungry.

I believe we may be a bit of both, or at least exhibit a bit of both behaviors. There is help out there and we are going to find it.

Welcome aboard! Hello to the New Year! Introducing to the New You!
