***Michael Medved on why it's so popular to hate Tim Tebow.
The NFL is generously stocked with forgiven felons, including millionaire wife beaters and dog killers. So how did a clean-living quarterback with deep commitments to charitable service and miraculous last-minute victories become the most controversial player in the league?
Swiped both of these from my sister' blog - she has some good things there today in addition to the above - why not check it out? jensgyrations.blogspot.com
Diet Coke is a failure. I think it's another example of how we look for that "magic bullet" for weight loss. We drink fake Coke, eat fake sweets, and eat fake snacks and then rationalize all the while eating the whole package of fat free, sugar free, styrofoam concoctions. Those things do not satisfy. Eating real food in reasonable amounts - when will we ever get it?
Drinking water is life-giving, life-affirming. I may have this wrong but aren't our bodies something like 72% water? Many things are sweet and healthy - fruit is a good dessert. Snacks? There are 100 calorie pop corn packages on the market now. Is it the amount that is our problem? If we choose the fake stuff we can eat volumes and not feel too guilty but those things don't support life. Eating volumes is the problem for so many of us. I know stopping is my biggest challenge. Working on it.
We will have taken a giant leap forward when we honor the life we have by doing what will support it rather than trying to ruin it with our poor choices. Committing suicide with food/eating as our weapon is a slow and painful way to die. Is today good enough for us to want a tomorrow that is better or do we want to be one day closer to a truly debilitating condition that will change our lives forever? Let's all consider carefully today what we put in our bodies and what we do with our bodies. It is our choice whether to affirm or destroy our health.
Let's choose life.
