Type 2 Diabetes on the Rise in Children

Originally posted on Chipwellness's Blog:

A new study published in Pediatrics reported an alarming 23% of teens are pre-diabetic or diabetic, an increase of 14% over nine years. This dramatic increase cannot be attributed to genetics.  Today, 34% of children ages 12-19 are overweight or obese contributing to increased risk of type 2 diabetes.  This also puts them at higher risk for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, breathing problems, gallstones, and joint problems – chronic diseases commonly found in adults. A future of damaged blood vessels, kidney disease, coronary artery disease, eye diseases, increased risk of stroke, and a lifetime of medications is not what we want for our children.

We need to be aggressive in attacking type 2 diabetes in teens.  Start by shedding the excess pounds by reducing fat in the diet by eliminating fried foods and dairy products. Read nutrition labels on the side of packaged foods for total calories, sugar, and…

THINGS I USE THE INTERNET FOR

When I was first introduced to computers and the ‘internet’ (Back in the day, ahem) I was working in a local major corporation’s data center with a whole bunch of techies/programmers and software trainers. Language used I was not familiar with! I had a great resource at hand from 8AM – 5PM. Computer training, software training was available and I indulged to gain knowledge.

After being caught up in the net of one of many reoccurring ‘layoffs’, I accepted the position of General Manager, Gofer (go for this, go for that (^_^)), Secretary and Receptionist in my husband’s home-based manufacturers sales rep business. We purchased our first PC. Wow! We were ecstatic. Sorry IBM Actionwriter 1 Typewriter, you’ve just been replaced by bigger, better and faster.  We’ve come a loooong way since those days. I had to install a seat belt in my…

Bloggers limbering up for Memorial Day

The bloggers are busy this week leading up to Memorial Day weekend. Memorial Day began as a tradition after the American Civil War. Generally, the canon is symbolic of the conflict. How does a canon get from installation to installation? At the time of the Civil War the canons were pulled by horses, 6 to be exact. A battery was made of 6 canons and the accompanying caisson and repair wagons each requiring 6 horses. The two wheeled unit between the horses and the canon is called a limber. The limber also had a box that carried the ammunition. That ends up being a lot of horses. The photo is a little scratchy but you can get a sense for all the horse flesh required to move a canon battery. It doesn’t take quite as much horsepower to get the blog posts rolling with our motivated bloggers at Council Blogs.The bloggers all have their posts connected to Facebook from their wordpress sites. Feel free to comment on the blog posts here. Enjoy your holiday weekend.

From Ink Wells to Keyboards – How the Internet Changed my Life in my 60’s!

Originally posted on Encore Now:

  • As a kid, I learned penmanship using an ink well and an old ink pen.  We practiced doing circles and lines so that our writing was legible and yes, even pretty.   I enjoyed writing and from an early age wrote poetry and short stories.When I became an adult, I worked in offices that did everything by hand.  We kept record and files and remembered details in our minds.It was in the late 1980’s when I got involved with the computer.  My then boss decided to computerize our company.  I was part of the beta and learned from dos on up.  The good thing about those days is that I had computer support.  Then I retired about twenty years later.When I moved to the Ozarks, I took a job recruiting from home for a company in my home town.  It had many challenges, not the least of which was the lack…

THE FIRST STEP IS THE HARDEST

Originally posted on Confident Image Associates BC:

Today, I had plans to go out on a brisk walk, but Mother Nature foiled my plans again with high, cold winds and spotty rain. I don’t like walking in weather like this, so instead, I will insert a DVD in the player and go to it. I never, ever regret working out, even if it is only doing 25 reps of curls – my mood lifts and my step quickens.

I encourage my clients to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives. Taking the first step into physical activity (First approved by a physician, of course) is the hardest, but I promise them, as I do you, it is a worthy use of time. Begin slowly, short intervals for aerobic, use light weights in weightlifting, etc. Common sense and all things in moderation prevent injury and discouragement.

I offer a 6-Week Challenge to my clients, which includes a…

May Day, the 8 hour work day at Council Blogs

May Day symbolizes the American drive to establish a 8 hour work day. At Council Blogs we have a special take on the 8 hour work day and our marketing plan. It is ironic that the origin of the 8 hour work day is the U.S. where we have such a work-a-holic culture.

Enquirer.com put it elegantly: American workers take an average of 13 days off a year. The Italians meanwhile take 42 days, the French, 37 days. Even the highly productive Japanese take 25 days a year.

The rule in our blogging club is to set aside one hour a week to work on marketing. WIth all that work-aholism you would think it would be easy to find an hour. That’s why we have an organized get together. Mike calls it “an appointment with the maketing department, myself.” If you would like to join the bloggers you can email the Chief here.
