I wanted to write today, on something. I am not really certain how to go about writing, though. As I browse down the list of posts on my WordPress reader option, I am taken back by some posts that bring things in my own life to the forefront.
Isn’t it odd how something you can see or read can cause many things to flood into your mind? I am concerned , not only today but everyday on the lives of others around our world. There is a lot of people missing out on life and living it to the fullest, me included. I see people walking around with so much on their plates, hearts, and minds. I constantly hear of tragedies and trials that await people, everywhere in our world. Personally it makes me sad. We have to be careful not to take upon our heart the troubles and sadness of others in a manner where it takes over and spills into our own lives. Sadly, it has trapped me some in knowing what those things have been personally, for me, and replaying them while watching them play out, in others lives.
I hope you can follow me. My mind talks so fast, it is hard to put down into words as my fingers try to keep up. I am often concerned to no avail to, honestly. I cannot personally take care of everybody or their problems, and if I am honest, no one is asking me to. Do you follow me? We cannot personally do everything we need to do, we are simply human.
Okay enough about the depressing thoughts of not being able to help solve everyone’s issues or being able to change things.
I saw a post this morning about emotional abuse and it had me thinking… After reading the first part of my post, you probably already know I think. Hahaha. the emotional abuse post had me thinking on how people everywhere in any kind of relationship experiences emotional abuse on some level and in some way. So, It usually does not last long or cause substantial damage, but if we were to think about it, it has more than not happened. So, what makes it abuse? I think it is when someone uses their motives, ways, words, etc., to sway or move, or damage, or imprison another. If it causes the other person to feel less than desirable, un important, or damaged, it is abuse. Abuse is ugly and it usually has a keeper and a prisoner to it.
Emotional abuse is wrong, so if you are a victim or you see it happening, ask and seek out help. A lot of places stay anonymous and let you stay hidden enough that you can freely seek help.
Living in a situation less than desirable is hard enough, but living without love and acceptance is a hard “pill” to swallow.
With all that being posted, “thank God”I am free to think on other things. I really let things dwell deep into my soul. I felt I needed to post about that. Perhaps someone reading this has been there, is there, or like me, struggles everyday to release their selves from past abuse.
Did you know…that by writing posts, or what have you’ s that you directly and indirectly influence another’s life? You DO.
Please be good to others, please be kind to yourselves!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We get this one lifetime to do good, use it wisely.
I shall see you this side of the RAINBOW!!! MwsR <3
Myth 1: There’s No Science Behind the Diet
Fact: Multiple studies back the keto diet because it was first created for patients with epilepsy, since the high fat content in the diet helps to control seizures. The diet has also been seen to help maintain weight and regulate side effects in those with high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s, hypertrophy, and obesity.
Myth 2: It’s High Fat and High Protein Fact: The diet isn’t all about fat and protein. The macronutrient split will vary from person to person, depending on weight goals and training goals. A common macro split for the keto diet is high fat, moderate protein, and low carbohydrate. Translating that into numbers, it’s 5 to 10 percent carbohydrates, 70 to 75 percent fat, and 20 to 25 percent protein. I’ve practiced the keto diet and kept my macros for carbohydrates closer to 10 percent because I was starting the training process for a marathon.
Myth 3: You Can Eat Any Type of Fat
Fact: Healthy fats are highly encouraged for the keto diet. Just like with a balanced diet, it’s best to stay away from saturated fats and trans fats. Consume foods that are organic, contain virgin olive oil, are grass-fed and pasture-raised, and do not contain ingredients that are difficult to pronounce (a good indicator that it’s processed).
Tip: Space out the amount of fat you will eat during the day to prevent any stomach discomfort
Myth 4: The Only Benefit Is Weight Loss
Fact: You won’t just see the numbers going down on the scale, but you’ll also notice that you may be more focused. The keto diet helps to regulate hormones, stabilize blood sugar levels, enhance cognitive function, and improve gut health. There’s also research being done on how the diet could potentially benefit patients with cancer.
Myth 5: Exercising Is Not Recommended
Fact: Exercise! At the start of the diet, you may feel more tired, but it’s not an excuse to stop exercising. Your body is figuring out the fuel source. To get the most out of your workouts, make sure you’re eating enough and allowing enough time for recovery. You may also notice that you may need more carbs to exercise—it’s fine to up your carb intake a bit on workout days (listen to your body).
Myth 6: You Will Lose Muscle Mass
Fact: It’s possible to gain muscle mass while on the diet. A study published by the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that following the keto diet while practicing strength training can pack on slabs of lean muscle.
Myth 7: Ketosis and Ketoacidosis Are the Same Phenomenon
Fact: They are two different conditions. Ketoacidosis is a dangerous diabetic complication when the body creates too many ketones in the blood. It’s important to note that this only happens in diabetics or those who have a history of metabolic dysfunction. As for ketosis, it is a metabolic state that occurs when we limit our carbohydrate intake and increase our fat intake, simply switching fuel sources.
Myth 8: You Will Always Feel Tired
Fact: You may experience fatigue during the adjustment period of the diet, but it goes away soon. The fatigue is commonly associated with the “keto flu,” but not everyone experiences this phenomenon. And if you do encounter the keto flu during the adjustment phase of the diet, it should last no longer than a week.
Myth 9: It’s a Short-Term Diet
Fact: The length of the diet depends on your needs and goals. A standard time frame for the diet is two to three months, and then reverting to normal eating patterns for a few weeks.

The original comic book Superman could leap tall buildings in a single bound—but then he had to come right back down to earth, because he didn’t fly.
It wasn’t until the 1940s, when animators for a new cartoon show decided it would be too difficult to routinely draw him bending his knees, that it was decided Superman could simply take off into the air. The audience got to see smooth animation and a superhero gained a new power.
