Watch Face

In my last post where I wrote about my biking experience and fitness tracking, I said something to the effect that although my smartwatch  was lacking a few features, it would suffice. Well, not too long after saying that, I went out and purchased an Apple watch. I waited a while before I wrote about… Read more

Biking

It’s been quite some time since I’ve put anything new on this blog. I’m a firm believer in the adage if you have nothing to say…be quiet. Hence, I’ve been quiet. What’s New? Well, I started bike riding again. Biking is less taxing on my mature lower back and hips. Riding a bike at this… Read more

Morning Rituals

Whether you’re aware of it or not, you have a morning ritual. Or, for those who sleep late, you have a ritual you perform upon rising.

Health and Discernment

Fad Diets Don’t Work

Over the years, I’ve been rebuilding myself. As I make improvements, I can’t help but think of the old TV show, The Bionic Woman.  The major difference between my transformation and Jamie Sommers (Lindsay Wagner’s Bionic Woman character) is I’m rebuilding myself using nutrition while she used high-end metals and technology. Although she was superhuman… Read more

Bone Spur x-Ray

If you have ever suffered from a bone spur, you know just how painful it can be. The pain can be debilitating and life-altering. When I was finally diagnosed (i.e. viewed the x-ray), I was able to see the nasty calcium buildup that was the cause of my pain. Fortunately, through natural remedies, I was… Read more
