Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Gearing Up

Yesterday I announced my intention to participate in Michael Wood's 10,000 step challenge. Today I don't think I could do the sugar part – abstain from added sugar for the whole month – without doing some sort of gearing up during these last few weeks of October. I need some mental preparation and lots of knowlege about food in general to be able to kick added sugar, so in addition to writing for you, I'm writing for me these last few September days. I'm making it a mission to collect things I can find easily and retun to when the Halloween candy hits the shelves. (Great time to decide to kick sugar – thanks, Michael! Lol!)

Michael Wood has a great flip book online to help with diet and exercise. The first page is a video about The Bitter Truth About Sugar. This video really made me angry about what the food industry does to us so they can profit off of our sugar addiction. It also made me realize I don't have to be a part of it. It also made me understand why I found it wasn't the wine that was causing my problems. Wine is not packaged and processed food loaded with added sugar. (Phew – this is quite a relief!) My few glasses on Friday and Saturday night is not what is making me feel awful all week long. It's the sugar hidden in the most amazing places that causes all kinds of bad things. Aging slows down metabolism enough and it takes a huge effort at my age to battle that. Couple it with overloading on sugar that my body can no longer metabolize and I'm heading for much worse than a few glasses of wine is ever going to do to me.

I am putting the link to Michael's flip board here so I know where to find it in a weak moment. I hope you enjoy it, too. Check out Smart Exercise and Diet. Let's “gear up” for October!

And so, as another day goes by, sometimes you just have to stop and seriously take care of yourself, and…I have written.

Found on the Koko FitClub Cape Cod Facebook page – lol!..
