Today…. I was bitchy.

Today did not start out well at all. I hadn’t bought enough of the things I knew I’d want to eat, my eldest seems to LOVE my cucumber slices… and I woke up hungry, with the wonderfully delicious smell of … Continue reading

Research has finally caught up to Common Sense!

Apparently the Researchers from The University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom have finally proven that you can’t not treat obesity in multiple people with a “one size fits all” mentality.

“With most health conditions, there is variance in a  treatment plan based on the unique conditions of one’s illness. For example, we know there are 14 types of breast cancer, and each may have a very different course of treatment. But with obesity, it’s one size fits all: Eat less. Exercise more. Repeat.

Until now.”

The above quote comes from Amy Capetta, from Yahoo! Health. She wrote an article entitled “There Are 6 Types Of Obesity – And Each Should Be Treated Differently” in which the 6 types of Obesity are stated and makes it glaringly apparent how you cannot treat a person from one category the same as you would a person from another.

This has been apparent to me for a very long time. Just seeing the different people in my family that either worked on toning their body, keeping in shape, loosing a little weight, or trying to loose a lot of weight made this idea completely transparent to me. The things that worked for one or more did not work for all.

Eating less and working out more actually caused me to gain more weight, counting calories turned me into a zombie with no energy. Diet pills were not good for me either, the PA at my local clinic was a life saver there. And yet the doctors continued to state the same rhetoric over and over, “Eat less and exercise more”. My body chemistry wasn’t working with that and it wasn’t until I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism that I started to loose weight and keep it off for a few years.
I truly hope that this continues to be a continuous debate within the medical world, as well as the weight-loss world.

Blessings and Warm Wishes to All,

Musings From An Upset Mind

Now… lately there seems to be a string of childish behavior. An epidemic really, and I’d like to address it.

I can’t voice any one else’s opinion on this subject, as I don’t know it, but I can voice mine and so far all I can come up with is – Some people need to grow the *insert any word of choice here* up!!!!

We are adults, childish behavior needs to be left behind with the childhood, or in some cases “teen”, years and if you still feel the need to act like an adolescent then feel free to put on a diaper and grab a bottle. Childish behavior helps no-one and gains you absolutely no sympathizers, although in some cases as people tend to lie quiet well they do have some.
How I wish the truth could be voiced to them but what good would it do? We must wait on Karma, as people will always “reap what they sow”in the end.

Now, this type of behavior does, howsoever, in most cases gain you the title of “Self-Centered B****”, be you male or female. It gains you the ability to look like someone who hasn’t learned that the world doesn’t revolve around you, and is able to isolate you into a place that no-one wants to be.

I’m tired of the “Poor, Poor Pity Me” trip and people who tell lies to gain whatever gram of sympathy they can from people who truly just want to love you for you and be there as family, friends, to just be together.

I guess that’s all I have to say on this now other than, No-one is a pawn to be used by another. We are all individuals who create our own happiness and are entitled to that happiness as well as keeping that freewill that allows us to keep those who wish to bring us down out of our lives.

The flip-side of this is that when those who have wronged us may or may not be able to enter our lives without a door being there for them to use.
 So when/if we tell those who continually bring us headaches to take a hike because we don’t need, nor desire the stress they induce upon our lives, we should also allow them the door to enter our lives again. We can accept the apology, or just accept that they have changed, until evidence contrary to this presents it’s self. And hopefully those who are family will realize we love them and want them as a member of our lives, but we hold the right to be individuals without requiring their permission to be who we are. We also hold the right to kick them out again should they begin the same BS again. Unlike a child… an “Adult” doesn’t require more than one chance, and is old enough to know that a true apology means they WON’T repeat the behavior and will do all that is necessary to prevent a repeat performance. 


These are my thoughts and now that it is off my chest I feel slightly better. I hope this little rant of mine can help another but if not, It does help me.

Warmest Wishes and Wonderful Thoughts to you,

Ya-Ya

P.S. Do not let the “Emotional Vampires” of the world “suck the life” out of your day. Be strong, and continue being positive.

Is the Federal Government over stepping in our rights?

Considering the “recent” issues concerning the Bundy ranch located in Bunkerville, NV it seems that we are seeing, quit publicly even if the local news seems to not want to cover it, just how far they are willing to go to take land for a reason that we can not see at the moment.
It is concerning because this is just a step farther in taking away our rights and access to public lands. There are correlations between other stand-offs between citizens/groups and the federal government that greatly concern me, ie. snipers.
The lively hood of this family is being threatened and taken away. While I do agree that the family should pay the money to graze the cattle I do not believe the BLM, Burial of Land Management,  has the right to take their cattle and restrict access to the land like they are, nor employ goons to assault people.

I know the treatment of the Veterans that fight for the country and have been in war are treated horribly in Nevada. Just journey down the I-15 and into California and you would receive better treatment as a Vet, unfortunately unless your willing to pay the expenses yourself it isn’t affordable to most of them and they, therefore, must accept the free treatment from the VA Clinics in Nevada. I’m off-topic now but what I was attempting to point out is that, in Nevada, it seems that no-one gets a fair shake.

There are so many things I could comment on and give my view-point but I’ll try and stick to this. The claim has been made that they are removing the cattle to save the desert tortoise.  This has been proven to be a wrong move time and time again. The BLM has had to euthanize a few tortoises because they CAN NOT manage them. The removal of cattle from the area where the tortoise lives is a horrible idea, unless you want to kill the tortoise off and have ulterior motives. The cattle and tortoises are connected in a food web. The tortoise is dependent upon the cattle, esp in times of drought as they will eat the droppings from the cattle for moisture. They are also dependent upon the cattle as the rancher will haul water out to them when needed and supply feed as needed, which the tortoise takes advantage of. When these things are taken away, what is left for the tortoise? Nothing, and then it dies. This is not management of the tortoise, to kill them off, this is greed over the cattle and rancher by the BLM.

I can not say more on this, except to say that I hope eyes are being opened and that people with make their voices heard.
