Gratitude, Thankfulness, and Forgivness




This one thing has everything to do with the way you look at your life and how you treat others and I think that it can make a huge difference internally to the way you look at yourself and those around you

Gratitude, thankfulness, and forgiveness will change your life

We all live a life judging others, judging ourselves and trying to change people to conform with the views and opinions that we have. Well maybe not always but often anyway. We all know what is right and wrong for certain things and with others we are not so sure. That’s just human nature. The times I see that in myself are in the times that I “think” that I am sure of the truth and at the same time I find I don’t judge or try to change opinions in places that I do not have a hard and fast view.

I have found though that it is important to break down the ego and look at gratitude, thankfulness, and forgiveness as much as I can so that I can be open to change and learn  more from others, this brings me to a higher, better consiousness and a far better place to accept myself and see my own flaws.

The ego is the enemy more than anything. So how do we do these things?

Gratitude – To have gratitude we have to see where we are and what we have in our lives that is good. Everyone can harp on their weight, bad job, unsupportive people in their lives, but really this does not ever help us to move forward. Instead try and make sure that you are always and only looking at the best of things in your life. Sure you can change things in your life but if you are always looking at the crap in your life it is hard to move forward.

So always be grateful for the great things, situation, and people in your life as an anchor. Many people use a gratitude journal or just write down once a day the 10 things that they are grateful for at that very moment

Thankfulness – In all areas of your life you have to promote the people and situations that you are in at that very moment. This is really thankfulness. I personally look at gratitude as being the whole of my life and thankfulness at the little things at that instant to be thankful for. The sunny day, the guy that lets me in in traffic, the kids listening to me, and especially a big hug from my wife. Thankfulness is critical to making sure that you understand that life is not going through the motions but is instead a fantastic bunch of little situations and events that make a life full.

Forgiveness – This is a hard thing for most people, me included. Forgiveness simply means that no matter what happens bad in your life you are willing to forgive the person that did it. You can’t hold onto anger, fear and resentment in your life as it will harden you and suck out the great emotions in life and instead fill you with sadness and hatred.

So that guy that bumps ahead of you in line, he’s probably in a big hurry, forgive. The coworker that puts you down in a meeting, they have ego issues, forgive. The kids drinking next door and keeping the neighborhood awake late into a Saturday night, they are having fun and don’t even realize people are hoping to sleep, forgive them.

Forgiveness is the toughest of the three here because you are hurt by the situation and often the other person is not at all. Forgiveness as I said though is critical because you can never move forward if you are resenting others, believe me I tried.

For anyone that is a Christian or Jewish, or Muslim this is not news. Religion has taught these truths for thousands of years but that fact is that most people don’t actually practice these in their day to day lives. I am sure, actually I can promise you, that If you integrate gratitude, thankfulness, and forgiveness into your daily life if will really change you and help you move forward.

Weight Gain Supplements: What You Need to Know




Weight gain supplements or weight gainers are supplements that are high in protein, carbohydrates and calories.  They are beneficial for people who are active and want to put on some weight and muscle mass.  Many people think it’s easy to gain weight, when in fact it’s not.  You need a nutritious diet plan and a good workout program to build muscles and gain weight, including supplements to provide the extra calories and amino acids your body needs to bulk up your physique.

Pumping iron and doing the right strength training exercises should go hand in hand with a weight gain diet plan and supplements for a complete body-building program.  Eating right is essential to a weight gain program, hence it is important to ensure that you are putting quality calories into your body.  Weight gain supplements provide a convenient way to get the necessary nutrients you need for optimum muscle growth.

Weight Gain Supplements

While most weight gain supplements are used for sports or bodybuilding, some people use them to gain more weight and improve their health.  AIDS patients and those with Crohn’s disease (an inflammatory bowel disease) can benefit from these supplements.

Weight gain supplements provide the calories people need in order to gain weight, and are very useful when the daily diet cannot provide the desired number of calories.

Whey Protein for muscle Gain – Whey protein is one of the most popular supplements for building muscle mass and gaining weight.  It is extracted from whey, the liquid that remains when milk is processed to make cheese.  A special process is used to extract the whey proteins, which are dried into a powder.  Whey protein is mixed with milk or water and consumed as a protein shake.  Experts recommend taking this supplement within 30 minutes after a workout so that the body can use the amino acids in the proteins for muscle repair and synthesis.

Creatine for weight gain – Creatine occurs naturally in the body, where it is involved in the production of energy.  Creatine supplements are taken to help delay the onset of muscle fatigue, allowing you to work out longer and build more muscle mass.  While it is generally considered safe when used in the dosages recommended by its manufacturers, there is some concern that creatine may cause liver and kidney problems.

Glutamine to help muscle gain – Glutamine is an essential amino acid found in muscle tissues.  It is believed that glutamine supplements can help limit the breakdown of muscles during exercise, thus leading to increased muscle gain.  Glutamine also helps improve the immune system and aids in speedy recovery after an illness.

Caffeine for Energy in the Gym – Although caffeine is not directly involved in weight gain or muscle building, it is a useful supplement for those trying to gain weight and develop bigger muscles.  Individuals who take caffeine before a workout are able to increase their load and become more resistant to fatigue.  Working out harder and longer has a positive effect on muscle gain.

Safety Concerns with weight Gain Supplements

Weight gain supplements are generally safe, especially when used as recommended by the manufacturer.  A few negative effects have been associated with creatine supplements, such as stomach cramps, nausea, muscle cramps and diarrhea.  High doses of creatine may cause damage to the kidneys, liver and heart.

Are Eggs Good for You?



Are eggs good for you? Over the last 50 years there have been mixed messages from all levels of the food management chain over whether eggs are good for you or poison to your body. Taking Veganism out of the picture it is interesting to see what is going on within that egg in your fridge

What is in Eggs

Are Eggs Good for You?

Are Eggs Good for You?

Protein – The average egg has an interesting protein profile that can not be overlooked. For many years the best protein that bodybuilders ate to improve muscle was egg protein, this has not been replaced by whey protein but still eggs are good for you in that they have a very balanced amount of amino acids and each egg has 6 grams of protein

Carbohydrates – Eggs have no carbohydrates so they also have no fiber but still for many people on carb restricted diets this is a good choice.

Fat – Eggs are actually high in fat for their weight and size. The average egg has 5 grams of fat which is only about 40 calories from fat but this is almost as many grams as protein. This is a problem for many people although most people are not going to eat too many eggs at one time for this to be a deciding factor whether to eat eggs or not.

Cholesterol – Eggs are very high in Cholesterol and this has been the problem that the health industry has had with Eggs over the years. the average egg has 211 mg of Cholesterol so people that are concerned for good reason that eggs can be a risk to your heart and arteries with the cholesterol leading to high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries.

Are Eggs good for you?

The latest scientific study it seems that eggs are bad for you but it is important to look at an egg for what it is, 70 calories with protein and 211mg of cholesterol.

If you eat one egg by itself no problem, if you eat two eggs still no problem. But if you eat 2 eggs with bacon and toast slathered with butter….well every morning eating this will make you very sick.

The most important things to me are habits, consistency, and smart decisions. I love eggs and eat an omelette probably once a week but I would never eat them everyday so really in the end I think that making sure that eggs are a special part of your diet is a fantastic thing but not every day when there are much more healthy choices for an everyday breakfast.
