Alkaline For Health – Part One

I written many times on this subject.

I cannot emphasize enough how important it is that your body is in an Alkaline condition. It is essential to good health and prevent cancer, as cancer cells do not grow in an Alkaline environment.
When your body is Alkaline you will not have a weight problem, you will have more energy and you will be more alert as your brain function will be sharper, you will be stronger and an Alkaline diet is very anti – aging.
It is not always easy to keep it this way  the temptations of fast food and dining out on rich type food is all around us but to make a habit of it can be hard on your health.

 We all fall off the wagon from time to time, but as long as it is not part of your permanent lifestyle I think it would be safe to say you can jump back into a healthy diet the next day without too much damage.

I believe we can get a bit boring when we become eccentric about our eating habits and we end up not enjoying our food and no one enjoys having you over for dinner because you have become so picky. Just relax and don’t stress over it. Stress is another thing that can destroy an Alkaline body, but that’s for another day.   I believe that once you have changed your diet and spend time cooking healthy food you will notice the difference and not get the same pleasures out of tasteless  (sometimes tasty)  fast food.

Day 22 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

DONE! Day 22 – My work is done. Hopefully this small effort has made anyone who has been watching any one of the last 22 days, aware of the traumas that our veterans suffer while away and on their return home. So let us all be compassionate and helpful in anyway we can. Donation would be good at ‘Getheadstrong.org
Mind you I must add this was the second take, I actually did 44 pushups as my camera man cut my head out of the picture in the first video. I was breathing a little heavy in the second take.

The reason for 22 days and 22 pushups is the recognition and awareness of proven statistical evidence that there are at least 22 veterans commit suicide each day in the United States Of America and a growing number in Australia. There has been 274 suicides in Australia since 1999.

For most of us, we can not comprehend the trauma that they experience and how tolerant and supportive we must be for those who fight for our freedoms. It is not only tragic for our vets it is certainly heartbreaking for the families of these young men and women.
Today I nominate Mitch King 
to take the challenge.

No pressure . If you can great, if not that’s ok too.

But once you accept, you start tomorrow. The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day.
* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push ups, try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted push ups (from your knees) or you have to stop and take a break, that is fine but try to get them all done in one video.
* Every day the push-ups must be in a different location.
* Every day you just nominate a different person.
* And finally have fun with this!
This a great way to have fun and let these courageous Men and Women who put their life on the line and those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) know that someone is thinking about them.

5. The bright dots you can see in your eyes are your own white blood cells. Go outside and stare at the bright sky for a while and, they’ll appear before your eyes! The tiny dots you see are actually white blood cells moving across your retina. There aren’t any blood vessels in the center of your field of vision, which is why you can’t ever look right at them. This is called the blue field entoptic phenomenon.

6. Jerry Jones, Owner of the Dallas Cowboys called a meeting with all of his Coaches, Players and field staff and firmly told them, “You are all simply paid performers on a stage and that field is my stage! You will stand, with your hand over your heart and with respect, when our Country’s National Anthem is being played or you will no longer be a Dallas Cowboy, a Coach for the Dallas Cowboys or have any association with the Dallas Cowboy Organization! I will immediately fire you, no matter who you are!”

‘I say good for him for standing his ground, all other owners should take note and show the same strength of pride in the American flag in my opinion’.

Day 21 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

One more day to go. Taken at our closest park as there is rain around so could not go far. My intention was to go to the local Fair at Rosenberg where my friends have entered into the “cook Off”  but it looked like I was going to get rained upon. So with glass in hand of Prosecco it seems watching football is on the menu now for the afternoon.

Day 19 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

This was taken at my gym (LA Fitness)  this morning at 6am. Kindly videoed by a member of the gym whom I do not remember his name and it felt impolite to ask him as I chat to him most mornings. How embarrassing is that.
