Repost from @stillwatersblog I don’t have science to back up claims made about drinking celery juice. And that’s fine with me. Because I DO have over 1.5 years experience drinking it daily & watching my health transform. I can measure the way it has completely changed my 💩 in frequency, volume, formations etc (TMI but so important!) I can measure all the meds I’ve stopped after introducing celery juice as my daily stomach drug which was accompanied by other important diet/lifestyle shifts (celery juice is not the only thing but it is a BIG thing.) I can quantify the reduction in frequency of vomiting, in debilitating intestinal spasms, a lowered more tolerable level of constant nausea, & a reduction in severity/occurrence of headaches.
I have picture proof of my skin transformation becoming clearer, smoother & brighter. I can measure my much needed weight gain. I have scientific proof of improved nutrient absorption evidenced through frequent bloodwork- protein levels reaching normal after years of being low from malnutrition- iron, vitamin d & liver enzymes all vastly improved! Absorption is super tough for someone who has NO pancreas & gastroparesis & been through a whipple (triple whammy for me!) I can quantify my improved A1C & blood glucose readings. My loved ones will happily tell you how much MORE I CAN DO EVERY DAY since celery juice came into the picture. I can count the number of nights I’ve actually slept as opposed to lying awake every night in terrible pain. I can show you my new hair growth after so much had fallen out. I can show you how many different foods & how much more food I am able to eat after living on broth/puréed foods for years with no hope of improving my gastroparesis.
I can show you that despite surviving a pancreatic tumor, chronic pancreatitis, & surgeries to fully remove my pancreas, spleen, gallbladder, parts of my stomach & intestines... I have a new lease on life! Even in this frankenstein body which is SO HARD to live in, I am thriving in MY OWN WAY.
God is my healer! But I know without any doubt he led me to celery juice & He is working through HIS creation to restore beauty from the ashes.

NASA admits now that there is a firmament but it is “man made” another lie. They also say that it’s cracked but don’t say the reason why. The reason why is in the early 1960s there was a military operation that has been declassified called “operation Dominic” and “operation fish bowl” where the U.S. and Russia Nuked the firmament to try and break through it, and that is why it is cracked. “The Heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows his handy work.”-Psalms 19:1 this is what was written on Wernher Von Braun’s grave.
I'm sitting here waiting to meet with my professor thinking about life. Life isn't easy and for some of us it's harder than for most but we keep fighting. Each day we continue to fight and we prove society wrong. We prove that we aren't going to just give up like the world expects us to. We prove that we won't give up even when our bodies work against us. Even when life seems to work against us and that's what makes us strong. That's what makes is who we are. ❤
We’re in such a hurry to get to where we want to be. We want to get there NOW. But we forget to enjoy where we are. We forget to enjoy the process. We forget the learning part.
Never despise small beginnings. After all, it’s the beginning of what gets us to where we want to be. It’s the foundation. It’s the most important part: the commitment. So before you beat yourself down for not being where you want to be, consider this:
You are on your way. You are going to get there. Every part that you go through is so important in paving the way to where you want to be. #WetheOvercomers
El OPEN 19 ya está aquí y hay muchas expectativas al respecto. Yo lo espero sabiendo varias cosas:
1_ Mi competencia soy yo, mis limitaciones, mis debilidades, mis hábitos que no me ayudan a mejorar, mis pensamientos que no son correctos todo eso es lo que yo debo vencer.
2_ No me puedo comparar con nadie aunque el leaderboard si lo haga. El leaderboard no me define ni a mi ni a los demás. Todos queremos buenos resultados y si se dan eso nos hace más que nadie. Y sino se dan, levantamos la mirada y seguimos trabajando.
3_ Disfrutaré todo lo que pueda, siempre hay muchas emociones pero me acuerdo el día que empecé que me moría por hacer DUs... aprendamos a ver nuestro propio progreso y ser nuestros primeros motivadores.
4_ Daré todo lo que pueda dar en cada wod. No puedo hacer nada más que eso, démosle a nuestro esfuerzo mayor valor que el resultado. •
5_ Se llama OPEN porque es para todos, es abierto para todos nosotros los que no somos perfectos, los que estamos en proceso, los que estamos aprendiendo cómo hacerlo, los que tenemos agenda apretada, los que soñamos con poder hacer grandes cosas y llegar largo.
¿Ya sabe cómo recibe el open? No deje que sea una ola gigante que le pase por encima y se convierta en una mala experiencia. Piense y defina sus metas, aproveche este tiempo y sáquele el jugo. •
Let's just sit on that incredible yet simple truth.
The Holy Spirit guides our life... if we allow it.
Faith in Jesus gives us total freedom - freedom to live for Him, not for ourselves.
When we accept Jesus into our hearts, we give Him the key to our life. We humbly submit our -dreams and wishes- and let Him take the lead.
Are you fully surrending your life to Jesus and allowing the Holy Spirit to guide your life? What are ways you can begin to let go and let God?
Tem dias que a gente só quer um abraço daqueles bem demorados só pra ter certeza que não estamos sozinhos nesse mundo cruel onde a injustiça reina e a maldade faz morada.
Tem dias que a gente tenta ser forte, tenta não chorar, tenta não pensar em desistir.
Tem dias que a ajuda do próximo não vem, definitivamente não funciona.
Faça tudo por você, porque se você não fizer, ninguém vai se dedicar a cumprir tua obrigação.
A command made easy to follow. Have you thanked the Lord today? If not, take a moment to thank your Father in heaven. ————————————————————————
He's faithful, He loves us, He protects, He provides, and He loves our praise!
Feeling stressed? I am.
Life is a handful at its finest. There’s always more to be doing, more to be done. While juggling 17 credits, a part-time job, a social life, an interdependent family, volunteeing, health, fitness, adventure cravings, the list goes onnn— it can be overwhelming. Each and everyone one of us has their own things they’re attempting to juggle. I’m sure the most pressing things come to mind right now. Find a balance. Every part of your life should hold some priority. Some days put one thing first, other days make it another thing. Take some time every morning to quiet your mind and think about what you need for yourself that day. Whether it be to clean your room, go to the gym, listen to a devotion, finish a paper, see some friends, or stay in with Netflix. Feed your soul.
It helps to understand that stress is a lifelong predicament. It’s honestly good for you. If you’re not experiencing any stress, you’re not challenging or pushing yourself. Without that, there’s no growth. Stress is healthy. It simply needs management. Try to balance all those things you’re juggling and if you can’t, don’t be afraid to let something drop. If it means you’ll be able to juggle everything else better, it’s worth it. And there will be plenty of time in the future to pick it back up if you’d like.
I honestly realized that recently. I thought I had to do everything now, all at the same time, with all my effort in it all. Fooooolish. I was not enjoying life that way. I had to occasionally take “time off” for a month or more to be able to continue that lifestyle. Total opposite of balance.
Find a lifestyle you can live with year round. You’ll be much happier doing it 👏🏼
“Ulysses “Junior” Bridgeman is a case study in how to reinvent yourself. He played 12 years in the NBA from 1975 to 1987. Durning his last few years in the league he started making plans for his life after basketball and was introduced to the fast food franchise business. To learn the business he begin working at a local Wendy’s during the offseason.
His highest contract year in the NBA earned him $350,000. He used that as seed money, and scaled his business over the course of 15 years from 3 restaurants to 280. He was able to amass a fortune of $400 million in the process. He’s been an open resource for other athetles interested in getting into business. In 2013 he partnered with ex-NBA legend Chauncey Billups. Together they bought every Wendy’s in the city of Saint Louis, Missouri.
Never one to rest on his laurels, he reinvented himself again in 2016 when he sold all of his restaurants and made an even lager purchase. We talk about his journey and his next move on the 5th Episode of the @earnyourleisure Podcast. Out now. #earnyourleisurepodcast #HeresHow” - @rashadbilal
