Losing Weight to Gain Better Health

I started eating unhealthy when I was a freshman in college. It was my first time to be away from home for more than a day or two, plus home was now nearly 800 miles away. I took comfort in food, and I slowly started to gain weight. Even worse than gaining the weight was gaining such poor eating habits. I no longer ate vegetables every day, and pizza became a main staple for me. When I went past 200 pounds when I was just 28 years old, I knew I needed to find ways to eat healthy before I ate myself into an early grave.

Prior to college, I ate healthy meals, and I actually enjoyed them. I knew that I could get back to eating that way, but I also knew that I was going to need some help since my mom was still over 800 miles away. She did help me a lot over email and video chats, but I also found a great website that was filled with great information about the right kinds of foods to eat. It was exactly what I needed, and I was able to pick up a lot of valuable information from the site.

One of the things that I learned was how addicting sugar can be. It was one of my main food sources in college, and it also heavily contributed to my poor eating habits. It was just easier to slide a dollar into the vending machine outside my dorm room instead of going to the cafeteria to have healthier options. The more dollars I fed to the candy machine, the more dependent I became on the sugar. It was interesting reading about sugar addiction, and it was even more fascinating cutting those ties. I have lost nearly 30 pounds so far, so I am definitely on the right track.

Why the Tree Service is So Important to Us

When my first son was born, my husband and I planted a very small sapling in the back yard. We enjoyed watching it grow as our son grew bigger and bigger. It was always his tree, just as the other one was always his little sister’s tree that was planted two years later. When we decided to sell our house and head to Florida, our son asked if he could buy it. That actually delighted us, because leaving those two trees was one of the hardest parts of leaving the house. We have had the same Queens tree services company taking care of them for a while now, so we gave that information to our son when we gave him the deed to the house.

We knew that he would continue the tradition of taking care of the two trees, as well as the others that are on the property as well. The reason we had them pruned on a regular basis was because it kept them even healthier than what they were without the pruning. That is the thing that a lot of people don’t understand about trees. If they are taken care of and pruned on a regular basis, they are going to be healthier and stronger than ever.

We moved to Florida nearly a year ago, and we took a trip back to the house last month. It was our first time to come back home since moving, since both of our kids and their families decided that them traveling to Florida to visit us was even better. One of the first things we did was look at the two trees in the back yard, and it just made our hearts swell with love when we saw how well our son was taking care of them. That is just one family tradition that is really important to all of us!

Thinking About Dumping My Cable Company

I can not really claim that the cable company provides a bad product, in fact it is quite good and the only thing wrong with it in real terms is that it costs about twice as much as I feel that it should. In fact last month I opened my bill and it was 177 dollars for a rather basic cable TV package and broadband Internet. If you click here you can see how easy it would be to replace the TV part of the equation with a cheap satellite package. I found that in a couple of seconds and I have not looked into the fine print, if I did I might find a reason why it is not as good of a deal as it looks on the surface. Many times they are giving you something akin to the bait and switch, but it is called an introductory offer.

In essence you start out with a really awesome deal and then one day you realized you signed up for two years and the awesome part of it was only 3 months or so. You have to look out for that sort of thing. I know because they have gotten me a couple of times in the past. They put the awesome part in big bold letters, then they hide the rest of it in tiny fine print that I could not read without a magnifying glass. At any rate I have no worries about replacing the TV. I am sure that I can do that with little effort, although I want to get the right deal. I do not know exactly how I replace the Internet. There is not much doubt that cable is the highest quality Internet here, because we do not have fiber optic systems around here.

Reading the Gift Between the Lines

Gift giving is never easy. With Christmas already knocking at the door it’s time for another month or two of anxiety and stress as we scramble about buying one another gifts. As people, we’re amazing at giving gifts. It really is easy to give something to someone that we know well. Receiving them becomes harder and buying them for those we care for but wanting to give the perfect gift becomes even harder when we want to convey the right sort of message through it. For my mom I bought curly clip in hair extensions since she’s all about wigs and the like these days.

It’s amazing how much energy and thought that we put into a gift. Trying to say the right thing through a gift becomes an exercise in social engineering as we hope the other person is able to understand what the gift means. We take something a distill it into a message for the person. It’s like when you buy a gift for an ex partner; you want to ensure that the gift is conveyed in a friendly manner without it suggesting anything romantic. With those that we care and love, we want the message to be more intimate and not something simple that we would give to a friend.

Gift giving and receiving then becomes a social hazard of sorts for those that are not very good at subtleties. It’s something that I struggle with myself as I love being able to give people exactly what they want and have only just learned to understand that sometimes a gift can be taken in a manner it was not given. It remains baffling to me that we put so much energy into reading between the lines but since humans see communication in all things, it’s not too surprising.

My Aunt Means Everything to Me

My aunt raised me after my mother died when I was just a young girl. She has done everything possible so I can still feel a connection to my mother, and I will love her forever for that. One of the things that she did was keep my mother’s collection of vintage jewellery to give to me once I was old enough to appreciate the pieces. Not only did I fall in love with them, but I also wanted to add to the collection so I could pass it down to my own daughters one day.

My aunt and I loved to find new outlets for my jewellery collection, and that is why I was so excited when I found a new company online. They have been in business for a while, but they were new to me. They carry all kinds of vintage pieces, ranging from necklaces and bracelets to rings and earrings. I wasn’t making a lot of money when I first discovered them, which is another reason why I really liked their pieces. Not only were the pieces really gorgeous, but they are all very affordable too. I have seen some pieces elsewhere that cost more than what a house payment would be, so it was great finding a company that sells affordable vintage pieces.

When my aunt’s birthday was approaching last year, I wanted to get her a necklace for my gift. I knew the exact one I wanted to give. It is a vintage brooch pearl necklace that has a diamond design to it. It is absolutely gorgeous, and I knew she would love it because it was so unique. She has given so much to me, and I wanted to return the favor. She was speechless when I gave it to her, and she knew just how much she has meant to me because of this precious gift.

Gone in the Blink of an Eye

When someone stole my laptop, I couldn’t access anything on my hard drive. I was at a coffee shop and went to the bathroom for a quick second. I thought I was being smart by putting a lock anchor around the laptop, but the thief was able to cut through that, and took the laptop, leaving behind the lock anchor. No one in the shop saw him do it. The shop had to look at their security footage and I gave the police my serial number. I had tracking software where you can click and see by yourself where your computer is going when someone is using it over the Internet.

The thief wiped my hard drive clean, but before he did that, the tracking software was able to give the police an idea of where the laptop was at the time. Using the footage, the serial number, and the software, the police were able to track the thief down and arrest him. They gave me my laptop back, but since the hard drive was wiped, there was nothing left on it. The thief even made sure to wipe the drive multiple times to make sure that nothing was left behind.

I kept all of my important documents backed up on an external drive, so I had no problem with them. My main problem came from a particular invoice template that was stored on the laptop. I used that template all the time, and now it is gone permanently. I had to find a replacement template from a website to use in its place. The new template actually looks better than the old one, and actually is easier to fill out. I guess in that regard, the thief did me a favor, but I still resent him for stealing my laptop in the first place.
