I am learning now that there are reasons for everything, including injuries! 💯🕆💯 God will allow things to happen like in my situation , bed rest for almost 3 months now and I still have one more month before I see the spine surgeon for the next step. I may not understand but I'll look back next year and understand why then what God's plan was all this time. ❣🕆💯 If you are in a situation where you yourself don't understand why God is allowing things to happen the way that they are and not the way that YOU WANT them to be just.... Well know that you need to, "LET GOD TAKE CARE OF IT, AND YOU REST!"
Everyone is asking how did you get your diabetic A1C results(8.2= 189 average monthly TO A 6.8 = 148 avagering monthly) in only 3 months(90 days) time to be almost perfect and not starve myself, not be hungry ever, plus loose 9 lbs on bedrest (no exercise) WTH??? Well I can tell you what I did and you can ask your Dr if it's ok for you to eat healthy....... LISTEN, if your not eating the hormone injected meats, cheeses, dairy (milks, yogurts, butter, coffee creamer, etc..) and your eating a "pescatarian diet" with portion control, that's it!! I am at my healthiest my Dr said AND I'M ON BEDREST FOR MY SPINE FUSION?? Wait till I can exercise, can you imagine how my body will feel, look and perform?
Listen try the diet out for 90 days. If you have the balls too.lol.. Use optimum foods as such as whats on this chart. (The only thing I don't use is soy) EAT fish, use eggwhites, use healthy fats for brain function like avocados and wallnuts any nuts and seeds, use brown rice or black or red rice,(so nutritious), use no yolk pasta for pasta or spinach pasta and fresh veggies and fruits, Yummy one of my favs. But always use portion control if your diabetic or trying too loose weight? Eat on a small saucer instead of a plate. Use your palm for rice & pasta and eat 6 small meals instead of 3 large ones. Drink a 2 liter of water with 2 organic lemons in it everyday. Trust me this works and is less expensive to eat this way. For your cofee, use fresh ground cinnamon with coconut milk or cashew milk (and don't say eeeww unless you've tried it) don't prejudge.
If you could be any car in the world instead of your body what would you be? ?? Would you be a "old 80's Toyota" and put in the bottom of the barrell gas inside for you to run? (Why do that to your Toyota body?) Lol ?? Or would you be like ME the "CCXR TREVITA" that's made with diamonds and cost is 4.8 million (cherry red) my favorite with ONLY the OPTIMAL FUEL USED!!? See don't treat your cars better then your body people. Our parents might have given us bad genes but that doesn't mean we can't reverse those issues!
Just got my diabetic #A1C results back!🎉🎉💯👏🕆❣ I started to eat like a #PESCATARIAN the beginning of June this yr.
As you can see my A1C was a 8.5 in MAY! 😲😲😢🖓🖓 So I knew I BETTER make a change and a VERY #DISCIPLINED ONE at that because I did NOT want to follow down my mothers footsteps when she was alive of having a "6 bypass open #heart surgery due to her type 2 diabetes!
So I #watched this show called, "WHAT THE HEALTH" 😍🤗😲👀
It was a eye opener but it is MORE of a #WHISTLEBLOWER that you think all these organizations like diabetes association, american heart association, cancer society etc... WE'RE TELLING US THE TRUTH? #NOT
SO I chose to try out a "pescatarian diet"
(NO meat, no eggs just white, no milk or cheese and only fish and other raw fruits, veggies, organic, LOOK IT UP! I DISCIPLINED myself for more than 90 days because we all know our bodies do not change unless we give it 3 months or 90 days time.
So that is where my journey began, researching plant-based protein, beans, which foods would give me iron, fiber and protein and how I'd be content!
ALSO give me all the essential vitamins that come from food A-Z & not just supplements because as I ALWAYS SAY, "FOOD HEALS!" NOW YOU SEE this is MY #PROOF in MY BLOOD #LABS.
This shows all of you that are diabetic & those that are not diabetic, a " pescatarian diet" heals #diabetics So unless you decide to be DISCIPLINED and #CHANGE the way you're eating you will NOT change your A1C if your DIABETIC typ1, 2, 3 even borderline. Your body CAN HEAL but it is YOUR choice what YOU put in IT!
DO YOUR #research BE your own Advocate and stop allowing Meats, Dairy, cheese, egg yolks to poison your body if you are compromised already! Hormone injected
It is not a forever thing.
LOOK at my A1C it is basically normal & I AM type 1diabetic for 30 years!
NO DR. has ever told me to try a pescatarian diet.? WHY??
DO YOUR research my friends & family.
#FOOD HEALS or IT CAN BE your slowest form of poison & kill you EVENTUALLY!
I am OVERJOYED at MYhard work, determination & disciplined that I have done for MY BODY!
And I want to share it with you and hopefully you will do the same!???
True story! 💯
Even when people are not nice to you, thankful to you or grateful for all you do for them, this means family or friends you must keep your integrity in tacked and set the boundaries for self always! (as my father use to say when he was living), "The problem is really burried inside of them NOT YOUR PROBLEM at all!" My dad an amazing dad! 💔 I miss him everyday! 😢 #wishtherewerestairwaystoheaven
Also he said "STAY SILENT, SMILE and ALWAYS be a reapectable person at all times but place them on your acquaintances zone now! FORGIVE THEM BUT DON'T HANG AROUND THEM.
You should always smile and keep your head held high "when someone mistakes your kindness For a weakness" 💯👏 I agree 100%❣❣❣ #restinpeacedad
Woke up at 3:30am to grab my ice packs for my beck, spine and right shoulder and I see my 17 yr old kitty bubba wrapped up still like my lil baby in my favorite throw blanket given to me from my beautiful bestfriend Jeanny.💝😻 He made my frown turn upside down for sure❣🤕😻😍😊 #mycatissocute
⚘Caught my beautiful granddaughter Kaylee with her shoes on in the house.
My #1 rule is NO shoes walking around in the house on my floors!. 🛇👟
Everyone knows that even guest... Socks and slippers are cool but not shoes from outside. Yuck!! 😝😝 You step on so much outside bacteria, spit, oil, pee etc... and then you bring it in your home. NO WAY, YUCK! 😝🤔👎👎 Anyways, she made this funny face and I told her, "Kaylee you are still so beautiful even when you make a funny face at grandma!" She laugged and I hugged her big! I cant ever get upset with her..
She is my heart❣💗💯⚘⚘👸 #lovemygranddaughter

🤔Some people ask me,.... "Why do you still stay kind and in control when others can be so mean, unappreciative, call you only when they want something or just nasty to you Darlene?" #friendsandfamily ⏯I tell them trust karma and God.🕆 💯They will have their day. ⚖I delete and block them even if it's family too but you never wanna loose your #integrity over someone who choses to take YOUR kindness as a weakness. 💯
Trust me, I am blunt, true even when you don't wanna hear it and I can also decided to not give you my time or energy especially when you keep doing the same thing over and over again to me, #ignorstatus.... 🌞 I just smile and I won't let them see me sweat, cry or keep trying to be their friends or family members too. You have to learn to cut off negative people in your life! #yesitishard on a daily. 😔
But I value my time and positive energy and if this offends anyone then maybe it was meant for you to hear it. Btw, have a nice day and evening.😆 (Said in my sweet sarcastic voice)
Only my close circle of those i trust know what I'm referring too and yes I can say and put whatever I want on my Instagram or Facebook but know that I will never name a name!
💕 Just wanted to share with those who alsp may be struggling with a as I call it a "Good energy sucker" in your life. This method works.
#deleteandblock asap. ☄Wish I was in my 20's with the knowledge I have now at 43! 💯
🌞Have a wonderful day and know that YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF YOUR OWN HAPPINESS, NO ONE ELSE! (As my wise dad use To say)....💯💕 #rememberthis
Thank you Billy for always being a true dear friend that is here for me, a perfect gentleman and a true angel in my life!👫🕆 For listening to my long chats (Lol) and for lifting my spirits always! 💯
Luv ya hun... 💖🕆👫🤗 #friendsareangels
This is all what I told the "Second opinion spine Surgeon when he told me that the screw in my neck is starting to move off my spinal cord from what he sees on the xrays! Hummmm, YAYEE!!🎉🎉🤗 Buuuut, He says your other spine Surgeon is right and 2 MORE months of bed rest should help it more. 😔😤 He says, Then do another xray and MRI. Once cleared then you can go back to Physical therapy, shopping, doing work,etc... "OH PHOOEY" 😠 I told him. (Maybe thats why he didn't book a second appointment with me tho....😮😂. Lol... 😂😂💪🕆😆 #stayingpositive
🌟I Just had a good " Epsom salt bath" soak for all my spine swelling, shoulder and muscle aches and pains since I cannot take pain medication.
Just 2 cups in a hot bathrub works amazing In just 30 to 45 minutes.🛀💯🕆 Two cups of Epsom salt in a hot bath when you are in PAIN or when you can even if your just stressed out is amazing. Soak for 30 minutes to almost an hour will help take away ANY PAIN that you have including muscle, arthritis, Surgical, neuropathy , fibromyalgia , poor circulation , back pain, MS, Etc... (and as long as you ask your doctor first) you can buy it from the 99 cent stores for two uses or you can buy it at Walmart for a 6 lb bag for $6. Also any pharmacy will carry this natural electrolyte called "magnesium sulfate" which is "Epsom salts".... 💖🛀💯🛌
I DO know that it works for me in relieving my pain naturally and if you Google or read about Epsom salt benefits, you'll see for yourself that it WORKS in relieving pain, also you can use it in your plants for them to stay healthy and if you need it, you can also use it in the body as a natural laxative. So there are several ways to using this natural electrolyte that works amazing for all of those issues that you may have.
I have read that this is why all of the football and sports players use it after their games as well. Also Add a few drops of tea tree oil or extra virgin olive oil or extra virgin coconut oil to water just a few drops to the Epsom salt bath will help soften your skin.
Remember ALSO DO NOT drive after taking an Epsom salt bath because it is magnesium sulfate in which magnesium is a natural electrolyte needed in our bodies and it helps to reduce/Lower blood pressure so you may feel very tired after. So it is recommended not to drive or operate any machinery (like whos got a tractor?) 😂 But if you do then please wait till a few hrs before. 💖
Good night and I pray you have a peaceful and pain free good night's rest and try Epsom salt if you haven't done it already when you can, it's ALSO SAFE for children over the age of 6yrs old. Night.. 😴 💖💯🛀🛌🕆🤗 #epsomsalts
😨Woke up to a "53 blood sugar level"😢
LOTS of Shaking all over, dizzy, sweating, confused, eating my sugar tablets that taste gross untill I found chocolate and 2 glasses of vanilla cashew milk...(protein + sugar =all good in 15 mins) I swear after 30 yrs being type 1 diabetic, you'd think I'd be use to the symptoms, by now.. NOPE!😨😭! They still suck #big time !! 😠😢
This is a #hilarious #meme.
My #type1 #diabetics know exactly how this all feels like too. I'm sure I'll feel it in the morning. It's never fun waking up with a episode like this one the next morning because it really drains you. 😢😨😭😂 #type1diabetes
I truly believe in teaching kids and grandkids something new each and every time that I am with my granddaughter Kaylee..👭❣ We are however their very first teachers, their first of how to be classy ladies (which is lead by example), learn to cook, have morals & values, teach them our traditional recipes, and new recipes too. Our demeanors, positive feedback and good energy with them also matter BIG TIME, no matter how you may feel, Etc... We are there first mentors, and we are their examples because they are like little sponges and will absorb everything and anything this world brings forth... #teachthemnow
I had such a wonderful time even though it was Kaylee's creative idea. For the "minions pancakes"... And I never mentioned to her that
It became VERY messy, not so perfect, it took us sometime to clean up(which meant me doing most of it) lol... But it was creating the precious memories that we will always have together in the kitchen making our "minion pancakes" with organic food coloring, tHATS WHAT TRULY MATTERS!! 💯🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌞 These were the same things I would do with Kayla and Junior when they were little. It builds their self-esteem, creativity and so much more.
These are the special moments that truly matter that can be free, just listening to them, paying full attention to them,
like putting away your phone, spending "quality time" together, "listening" to our children and grandchildren while looking at them in their eyes and allowing them to be creative even if it is not perfect and very messy.. lol.
But be encouraging and positive anyway even if it's a huge mess you'll have to clean on the weekend... It was a great memory that we will always have and we will do it again for sure because like I told Kaylee,... "practice makes perfect!"🤗🌟💯 I hope you who's reading this had a wonderful weekend as well!💯💞🌞🌟❣
Spent the weekend with my granddaughter Kaylee and taught her how to make her own trail mix which she loved it.🎉👏💓
We made it with raw almonds, dehydrated cranberry raisins, pumpkin seeds, lemon lime cornnuts(which were organic from sprouts), and low salted pretzels.
She even took her a New bowl of Tupperware home to share with her mom and stepdad. 💞
😲WATCH THIS !!! 🎥
OMG, This is a "whistle-blower" that you have to see!
Thanks to my long time friend @brucieb83 , my eyes are wide open now.
For almost hitting the 3 weeks now since I watched it in the beginning of this month & I decided to help my body no changing what I ate,
my sugars test for my type 1 diabetes, are at LOW TO NORMAL and my levels are unbelievable by my endocrinologist which is my diabetic doctor.
I have come down 30 units off of my 24-hour insulin. That's huge for us diabetics.!!! I will just continue until I reach my goal.
PLEASE Go check it out for yourself on Netflix or YouTube Etc... ALL I can really say is "THANK YOU" very much Bruce just for your share of this really great documentary in the beginning of this month.
God bless you if you are reading this and about to watch a changing event that will make your life better as it has made mine.
Much love 💞~Darlene
This is a natural way of getting your nutrients / minerals / electrolytes after a workout or before one. 💞💯💦
Also for the kids when they get home from school. They have infused water bottles in several colors at the "99 Cent Store" that are PBA free, smart water you can buy cases or $1 for each bottle at Walmart or Costco and the fruits and vegetables should be organic since they sit in the water. You do not need the extra pesticides / wax into your body Etc.. Sprouts always has their sales during certain times of the week, just call the store to find out that's located near you.
Also go online to sprouts.com and ask for coupons to be sent to your home like I do. Eating healthy, drinking healthy, is NOT expensive if you know the right days to go to the Whole Food stores or have coupons especially if you have a family.
Value meals, soda,kool-aide & Gatorade is even bad for you and if you have high blood pressure, type 2 (controlled by diet and exercise), or gaining weight and being obese that is what is very expensive.😔
Sorry to be so blunt but It's your what you put into your mouth, bottom-line that can either help you or it could be a slow form of poisoning to your body.
And the kids even like it because I freeze all of my organic fruits and veggies so the water stays nice and cold. Can I run them under hot water and slice what I need into the bottle. Try it.
Hope this helps anyone who is spending tons of money on those flavored Waters, extra vitamin and mineral Waters, it will save you a ton of money through the week especially if you drink them everyday.
For people that say they have no time, do it at night to prepare for the next day it will taste even better. Have a great day!😊💞 #infusedwater
🍋I have been on a 21-day diet, eating only vegetarian food.
🐟 Fresh fish, organic fruit, organic vegetables, brown rice, Alaskan salmon, tuna, egg whites NO YOLK and a few other vegetarian recipes I've come up with as well. 💞The point that I am trying to share and make is I have now amazing normal sugars, and my bloodwork panel is normal and all my Dr is fantastic about it all.
Since I received the bad news of The mass on my lft ovary is larger & the cyst on my left breast too. I NEEDED to look further into a strict diet of Ginger shots, tumeric drinks, Braggs apple cider vinegar, healing teas, orgaic garlic that I swallow with lemon water (which i drink 2 liters a day of organic lime or lemon water) and a vegetarian diet is what I decided to be fully healed soon. It is helped me sleep longer than 6 hours when I used to wake up every
2 with pain, I am on no medication, I went from a pain level of 10+
to a 5 since day 3.
I've lost 10 lbs and am happier even tho,due to my newly circumstances. This has worked for me. I do not push it on anyone else. When our bodies are compromised like I have type 1 #diabetes (which is an autoimmune disease) for 30yr, people with high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, chronic pain, Etc.
A special diet & Organics is very important! People say that they cannot afford #Organics ?
I am not working nor do I recieve any assiatance since I am a homeowner & have no small kids. I go on sprouts sale days & I also go to sprouts.com. I asked for their coupons to be sent to my home which they will do for you. Most companies will do that for you to shop at their store's! Some things that I buy are buy one get one free. Now most of my Organics each week cost me $25 so I spend a hundred bucks a month eating healthy to cure myself & DO NOT take 4 pills the Drs wanted to give me which will/can give you other side effects!🖓🖓 My mom ate like she had no issues but was type 2 diabetic, had heart disease, a stroke & heart attack when she was 50. Not me.
People eat value meals for their families & spend way more than I spend in a week, in one day!
The point that I'm trying to make is the choice is yours.
🎊"Manic Monday"😨 🕆So today's lesson in my #niv #bible #app was exactly what I needed to read & hear. 👀👂🖒🖒
I wanted to share with you too! 🕆❤🤗💪🙌🖒🖒❤🕆 🕆No matter what you maybe going through today or even this whole week,....😨
🕆"Be STRONG and Courageous" like in the bible chapter & verse #joshua1 ....💪🕆❤
🕆You must have #faith and the knowing that if you pray and ask God for whatever you need, like a #example ,Strength, healing, protection, help, etc.... 🕆 #God is "ALWAYS" there with you and God will "NEVER" leave you nor forsake you as he says in #deuteronomy31 verse 6-8.
Also in #hebrews13 verse 5. 🕆Just #pray and #believe
Also, I always say this to myself when I start to get really stressed out and I'm feeling sad...
🕆"It can always be worse then it is now, so count your blessings and not your stressings!" 🙌😉❤🕆🤗 #truthbetold💯
