Week of March 31

Sorry Class, but I have been very sick and physically unable to sit up to post to the blog. However; reflecting on this week I must say that there is some truth to the saying that "You Start to Break Down at 40". Well, I turned 40 on March 31 and my engine literally shut down. I got sick on my birthday, and that has been the sickess I hae ever been in my life.

I hope the engine starts to rebuild itself as I get older, because WOW, I may need to warn others about turning 40. LOL But I feel better now and I must say, I am thankful.

You must understand that in our younger years it took 8-9 hours for red meat to pass through the body, at your present age it will take 12-14hours which is not good.
I did a colonoscopy over the Christmas holidays and a medical befor the Spring break and all is well.Try include the following in your diet, 1 TEASPOON OF RAW HONEY INSTEAD OF SUGAR IF YOU WANT TO USE SUGAR USE THE BROWN SUGAR YOU CAN GET THIS AT THE HEALTH FOOD STORE, 400IU VITAMIN E PER DAY THIS WILL GIVE YOU A YOUNGER LOOK AND KEEP YOUR SKIN MORE PLIABLE, USE OLIVE OIL INSTEAD OF BUTTER, USE SOY MILK NOT THE REGULAR MILK CUT OUT THE RED MEAT EAT FISH OR THE ORGANIC CHICKEN.
