CHOOSE TO MAKE YOUR OWN CHOICES

Image result for picture of someone thinking hard

The Experts say that between 80% and 90 % of everything we do is by habit.  We are born with no habits, so our care givers choose our habits for us, and a lot of those habits never change. Many people never move, change political parties, religion, and are content to choose someone else to make choices for them.   One of those habits is smoking cigarettes. They cause people to die and it practically says that on the label. Some people chose to smoke, get cancer and die. Those folks chose to let others make a poor choice available to them.

Everything happens because we made a choice. On June 12, 2006, I made a choice to be healthy. Why? I talk to myself and on that day said “If I keep on drinking and eating like I am right now, I will be dead in 5 years.”

I am a data guy. I tracked how may steps I walked every day, then it became a habit. I have walked every day since. A couple years later I drank a little more water and a little less sugar drink. I started to tweak my habit with a lot more water and a lot less sugar drink. Today, I drink no sugar drinks. It is a habit.

Our body requires food. We are losing the battle of diabetes and it is mostly caused by obesity. Obesity is not caused be eating too much. It is caused by the habit of eating over processed foods, and a big player in this mess is sugar drinks. Sugar is a drug and the choice is ours to quit or chose not to quit.

I put another habit into play. I chose to eat six or more fresh or fast frozen fruits and veggies and nuts before noon every day. The combination of lots of water and fresh fruits and veggies slowly changed my way of eating. I eat slower, more often and chose smaller servings. It is a series of newly formed habits. 

This has been a series of very simple, doable choices, that started very slowly, then just took off. This called the compound effect or expediential math.  A best seller The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy has been a part of this journey since November 8th, 2011. This is the third reread. He says to “take it slow and easy.

My walking time in a 5 K this year was the fastest time ever. Tracking steps daily is a habit. Today it is done on a smartwatch that wasn’t around in 2006. At this writing I have logged 30,346,200 steps one at a time. The pace is increasing and the daily average is going up, but still under 10,000 steps a day. I am not there yet. A daily routine of healthy habits is all that separates the old me from what I am today. If I can you can choose to

SAY HI TO THE CRYSTAL COWPILE

In the 1980s I had a monthly newsletter with about 100 subscribers around the country. The goal was to get folks to stop taking experts so seriously. I remember some of my “stuff.”

If banks are so poor , how come they keep building new branch offices.

Gold was selling for about $ 600 an ounce. I predicted  that gold would go to $800 , then again it may go to $400.

I informed my readers that I was an expert weather predictor and was never wrong.  I gave them a sample of my prediction.

“There is a 50% chance it will rain today. Tomorrow there is a 50% chance it won’t rain. I am never wrong.”

What scares the badingle out of me is there were and still are people who believe every dumb thing that  EXPERTS say.. X is an unknown and a SPIRIT is a drip under pressure.

BEEFITBOB WITH THE HAPPY HEALTHY TIP OF THE DAY

When shopping for fruits and veggies – you got three places to find them in the grocery store

the produce section

the freezers

the canned food aisles

Fruits and Veggies

The show place is in the produce area. HOWEVER if the fruit and veggies are not in season where you live they are probable  not so fresh. There is also a possibility they have been messed with to look pretty..

Flash freezing is a way to get fresh fruits and veggies really cold really fast. They keep almost all their flavor and the good stuff that makes us healthy. In some cases it can be better than buying the fresh stuff that may have been picked too soon or been around too long before you bought it.

If at all possible I avoid the canned stuff like the plague Too much sodium, processed sugars and other bad stuff. It is a good idea to wash canned fruits and veggies in water to help reduce the sodium levels..

BEEFITBOB AND THE HEALTHY HAPPY TIP OF THE DAY

An Iron Man was giving advice to a “newbie”. Eavesdrop with me. “Start by letting all the air out. Use the muscles at the base of your belly. Push and shove it all out, now breath in fresh air to fill in all that cavity from the bottom of your belly to the top of your chest”. Breath deeply when you run, walk, sleep. and make it a habit.

IT IS A GOOD HABIT

I SLEEP ON MY BACK

This is BEEFITBOB and your Healthy Happy Tip of the day

supervision-clipart-sleep

Been Sleeping on my back for a change. No more tossing and turning. I breathe deep like a little baby.

Dee Anna Glaser, M.D., a professor of dermatology at Saint Louis University. also thinks it is a good idea. For you gals she say the weight of your breasts is fully supported, reducing sagginess.

Back-sleeping also helps prevent wrinkles, because nothing is pushing against your face

. I had busted a bunch of ribs and punctured a lung and sleeping on my belly was too painful.

It is a new habit and my smartwatch tells me it is a good deep sleep. Give it a try.
