Day 2 Health Journal

Today during a team meeting at work we shared something we’d done or started from 2022 and going into 2023 that gives us bragging rights. I shared that I started a health journal, to (attempt to) post something every day.

Let’s see how long it lasts.

But it is an accountability tool for my making sure I do something each day for my health. Mental health, physical health, spiritual health, and every kind of health; work/home balance, environmental health (my living space), relationship health, and more. All these things make up health.

So below is my short audio recording of what I’ve done today and what I plan to do until the close of the day today.

Today’s journal:

Day 1 Journal – health

Today I went for a walk and thought about what could help my health improve. Health including rest, lowering stress, energy, sleep, weight loss, toning up, invigoration. So here’s what I decided to do. I hope it inspires myself and anyone else to keep a journal every day of your health goals.

Here’s an audio tape I did after walking in a nice park today – a favorite park I’ve often walked in. It was a great day with the sun out and crisp, clean air! I enjoyed that.

Trauma dumping and what to do about it

Over the years there seem to have been friends who would contact me to talk about their lives. This would go on for long amounts of time, where they never seemed to stop talking about their pain, without invitation.

This type of monologue would become monotonous because if I gave them initial time (because this would happen with no warning) with an invitation to call each other, it would become a one-sided dissertation of their pain for the last 20 years, and unwanted by me, their captive audience.

This may sound harsh but if you’ve ever been used as a dumping ground for repeated stories by the same persons over and over again, this may cause some resentment in the listener. Listening takes a person’s personal time and energy and can be a drain over the duration of the phone call.

Unfortunately for them I have learned I cannot give them my time as they seem to think their behavior of dumping their life’s problems on me is welcomed. In order to give the right message to make this stop, I have had to never be available for a phone call with these people.

I don’t answer the phone if I know they are calling and I don’t agree to meet with them. This is for my own protection and sanity. I know that once a person feels some temporary relief they will call me back again and repeat the process. The object is to break their habitual seeking me out so that they can dump their pain and explain their stories to me again, monopolizing me in the process.

I just wanted to vent and yet it is hopefully helpful for some of you to understand what is going on with some of your friends who should seek professional help if they are suffering through some things. You should not have to carry their burden, even being Christians we have to have limits, and we have to maintain our own schedules and personal energy levels to function in our own lives.

Here is a link to what I hope explains a lot more about people experiencing trauma and pain to that you can see the dynamics and that you have choices in how you make your time and energy available for people. If it goes on too long I would suggest you stop them gently, and in a caring way tell them you have to get off the phone and that you hope they get some professional help.

It really is the right thing to do. If you pray for them that’s great but you don’t have to let them suck all your energy, (I know that sounds harsh but we are human after all), and drain you so that you resent them and want to never speak to them again. Yet, you may have to cut them off forever. Do what you think is right and as always, with decisions you are making, seek the Lord’s help.

Booster studies alarm

Two new studies show that mRNA COVID-19 vaccinations produce higher rates of myocarditis than has previously been reported.

A study found that males aged 12-39 who received a second dose of the Moderna COVID-29 booster had a 9-fold increase in the risk of myocarditis compared to the first dose.

The Cleveland Clinic’s study revealed that every COVID-19 vaccine shot taken increased the risk of infection by 6 times than previously reported.

The information about these studies was blogged by James Cintolo, here.

Transferring mRNA protein to the unvaccinated

Here’s an article published on LifeSite News that talks about how the mRNA protein from the COVID jab can be transferred to an unvaccinated person from a COVID-vaccinated person.

Dr. Peter McCullough discusses this in a recent article and explains that close contact (ie; spouses, mother and baby, etc.) can potentially transfer the mRNA protein;

through breast milk, kissing, and sexual contact

LifeSiteNews – Dec 19, 2022

Continuing on to describe mRNA transference through close contact behaviors;

in the breast milk of mothers who received the COVID jab, and another one showing that kissing and sexual contact “almost certainly are methods of transference

The article states that Dr. McCullough implies that the the jab “is more dangerous than the virus itself.

Further research to learn more about this has not brought up new links.

Please add any links to the comments about this if you find them, thank you.

COVID blood clots

Someone gave me the following link I’ve been listening to out of concern of helping oneself “recover” from getting the jab.

A startling revelation by Mike Adams (Health Ranger) is that “it’s a self assembling, carbon rich structure” and that they are “not made of blood”.

This sickening news can be heard on a Rumble video at about 12 minutes in. Here’s the link.

I got a reply on Twitter to my question I tweeted out today: How can one heal oneself after getting the COVID jab?

I got a response from “Asyoulikeit”: Chelation and IV vitamins. Major metal detox. Check out this video with Karen Kingston and Dr. Ana Mihalcea. Explains a lot.

Thanks to Asyoulikeit, I appreciate the information.

Maybe you’ve learned more about how to help repair the body after getting the “vax”. Feel free to post them in the comments section.

God bless.

Home Security Cams (photos)

I decided I needed to install a few home security cameras in my house to watch outside into the parking lot.

Several days ago someone kept putting an empty aluminum can in my parking spot and when I moved it, they placed it directly behind a wheel of my car. I would roll over it when I drove out of my parking spot. Finding it again in my parking space and after several days of this, I wanted to find out who the person was.

Obviously it was someone who watched my apartment at the back of the apartment complex that I live in because on one occasion they moved the can within the time it took me to drive to the store and back which was under an hour.

Because they had done this so many times I ordered a HomeHawk camera that attaches to the living room window by a sturdy suction cup that looks right out onto my car outside. It worked really well and I like being able to watch my car periodically all during the day while working from home to keep an eye on anyone who may come close to it.

I bought this one that costs a reasonable amount for the clarity and brightness of the video, even at night.

It’s easy to see any movement outdoors and even a moth flying in camera range will set off the chime to let me know something moved outside with it’s motion detector.

Here’s a photo of what a HomeHawk camera video looks like at night:

This is a Panasonic HomeHawk Window Home Monitoring Camera video snip taken at night with the porch light on. The HomeHawk security cam is suction-cupped to my living room window. My streaming device is a Connors 10″ Notepad.

This image is what the HomeHawk camera looks like attached to the inside of a window (image courtesy of Amazon).

I run my HomeHawk camera on a cheap 10″ notepad and it runs just fine. Every so often the notepad screen goes to sleep. I’m still searching for instructions on how to prevent my notepad from going to sleep because the screen shuts down during the night even though it is still recording. I think if the notepad goes to sleep I won’t hear a chime when the camera detects motion. I’m not sure if I want to hear this at night but I keep it in my living room, so I’m not disturbed by the chime sound at night when I’m sleeping.

I’ve learned that for every home security camera you have, you need to have it’s own, independent streaming device like a phone, Notepad, or even Amazon Kindle Fire. I wouldn’t spend much money on whatever you choose but knowing what I know now I would use Amazon’s 7″ Kindle Fire because it’s cheap and the screen is a good size to watch what’s going on outside.

You have to plug each camera into a wall socket and they run on your home wifi. You also must download their application software on each of your streaming devices to watch the videos.

While at BestBuy a few days ago I picked up a super cheap Wyze Cam v3 for my other living room window that looks out on the side parking lot. I stream the video on a 7″ Amazon Kindle Fire that works just fine. Since the Fire goes to sleep every 30 minutes you can follow these instructions to keep it from going to sleep. Due to my window having a screen on the lower portion of it, I have to tape the Wyze cam onto the top portion of the window to avoid the camera from viewing through a window screen to interfere with getting a clear picture. I get a surprisingly very clear picture, even clearer than what is shown here.

This is an image from my Wyze Cam v3 streaming on my 7″ Kindle Fire. The actual image in real life is much more clear than this image.

This is what the Wyze Cam v3 looks like (image courtesy of Wyze). I had to use boxing tape to tape it to my window above the window screen that runs along the bottom portion of my window that can be opened.

Hopefully if you want home security cams for your home you might consider buying the same brand in the hopes of running all the video on one device, instead of having a device for each security camera you have. I have not yet found an app that works that will stream more than one cam on one device. Maybe with more research you will be able to find such an app.

I would highly suggest you get some microSD cards to insert into either your streaming devices or your security cameras because they give your devices more memory to record and save your videos on as well as more room to run your security camera apps on.

Here are the items that I bought for my security cam systems. I’m including both streaming devices I already owned that I use:

1. Panasonic HomeHawk Window Home Monitoring Camera for Outdoor Monitoring

2. Generic 10″ tablet (mine is a Coopers brand similar to this one)

3. HomeHawk app on Google Play

4. Wyze cam v3

5. Fire 7 tablet

6. Wyze Cam v3

7. Samsung microSD memory card & adapter, 256G microSDXC (I bought two, one for each camera streamer)

Have fun setting up your security system if you decide you need one. I feel safer having them, and enjoy knowing I am recording whatever activity and whoever may be wanting to harm my car or me, even.

In closing, let’s remember these words:

The Lord bless you
    and keep you;
 the Lord make his face shine on you
    and be gracious to you;
 the Lord turn his face toward you
    and give you peace.

~Number 6:24-26

I quit carnivore to return to keto; here’s why

I want to thank God today for allowing me to find out that living in the way I’ve been in the past year or so needed to be corrected, for my health and state of mind.

Last weekend I was suffering from a bout of diverticulitis; from what I’ve read I believe this is what was happening to me.

Many of you know I’ve been eating the carnivore way of life, and I’m happy to report that my eating that way was brought to an end. Diverticulitis is common among people middle-aged and older. One reason is that many of these people don’t get enough fiber in their diets.

Fiber is an enemy to the carnivore eating crowd I used to belong to. No fiber is needed, according to the carnivore way.

But alas, after my mild outbreak of what I believe to be diverticulitis, I came to realize that eating carnivore was not working for me. Granted, I was learning that I gained weight on carnivore as many people did – and I was angry about that.

I had been losing weight and feeling good while I practiced intermittent fasting, and when I went to carnivore from keto I began to gain weight. They tell you this is normal, that many successful people eating carnivore first had to gain weight, such as 20 pounds, before they began to drop weight and now they’re super-stars on the Youtube carnivore circuit.

Everyone wants to look and feel the way they do, right?

So throwing myself into carnivore was the way I was going to turn my body health and weight around. It was the latest fad in diets and I was tired of making green salads every day on keto. I was sick of cutting up and chopping veggies, meats, hard-boiled eggs and cheeses doing keto salads, EVERY DAY. It became a chore and a time-consuming one.

Even though I had great success doing keto, as long as I kept intermittent fasting that is, I was tired of having to measure ALL THOSE MACROS! It became like an unwanted science experiment making sure my macros were on target.

Keto was TOO MUCH WORK. I was looking for something new. Carnivore, with it’s simple meat-eating and no measuring method greatly appealed to me and I threw myself into eating carnivore.

After cleaning out my fridge and cabinets of all the keto foods, I bought all the meat I could fit in my freezer and prepared for my new and brilliant, wonderful new diet called carnivore!

After all, surgeons were recommending this way of eating, so what could go wrong?

LOTS WENT WRONG!

I was surprised at the amount of bio-breaks I had to take, even having done keto for two years and being fat-adapted already, I WAS UNDERGOING A GREAT AMOUNT OF PAIN AND SUFFERING just trying to make it to the bathroom before having ACCIDENTS ALL DAY!

They don’t warn you about having runny stools, yes, I MEAN DIAHRREA!

They do talk somewhat about diahrrea but not enough to warn you about all the trauma you might suffer when you transition over to carnivore and how awful it is or what to do about it. One doctor said eat more fat but I got to the point of buying over-the-counter anti-diahrreal medicine and went through pepto-bismal like CRAZY, buying it on sale and in large quantities – certainly more than a single person would need in their lifetime! How crazy is that?!

Then after some studying online I found one needs lipase, and I found Lypo-Gold which helped TREMENDOUSLY! What a God-send!

This post is getting long, so I’ll cut to the chase: NO ONE KNOWS HOW HORRIBLE IT IS to start carnivore UNLESS YOU’VE BEEN THROUGH IT AND SOMEHOW SURVIVED!

Those doctors should have a WARNING in RED right on the top of their websites warning people to prepare first, by taking lipase or some other supplement to help them through the WEEK(S) of RUNNY STOOLS they will probably suffer, more likely than not!

Then THEY OUGHT TO WARN YOU ABOUT DIVERTICULITIS AND HOW WE NEED SOME FIBER IN OUR DIETS! This is just a fact: God did not say to eat meat ONLY but gave us lots of plant-foods to choose from that add VARIETY to our diets, make us HEALTHY and HAPPY and keep us in alignment with all that he created for humans on earth. This is my opinion, but DOCTORS OUT THERE OUGHT TO BE FOCUSING HEAVILY UPON GETTING US THROUGH THE FIRST SIGNS OF DIVERTICULITIS AND OTHER ISSUES WE MIGHT HAVE BY SWITCHING OVER TO MEAT ONLY DIETS!

I am out of the woods but I shudder to think of the DAMAGE I PROBABLY CAUSED MY BODY BY EATING CARNIVORE FOR THE PAST SIX OR SEVEN MONTHS OF MY LIFE!

Now I need time to repair and recover, and gain sanity of my mind back!

Thank you God! I love Jesus and thank you if you got this far in reading my post. I’m leaving a link (below) in case you need to read it and want some advice.

Diverticulitis diet

Four years ago today I was driving to Redmond

I’m saving this video because I mention my belief in God four years ago and it shows the beauty of the general area where I live.

My life has been moved forward from four years ago and watching this video reminds me of how the Lord Jesus Christ has begun working in my life and improving things for me. I am grateful for His help!
