End of Week Review 4/17/2015

Why do I put up End of Week Reviews? Simple, really. There is so much posted on social media that all the posts can be overwhelming during the week. I put these up on Fridays (occasional Saturdays) because if you missed something you wanted to read, you have a friendly reminder about the earlier posts I put up during the week.

Why  don't I have an email list to send notices to people's email? 1) it costs more and 2) it is virtual "litter". My email boxes are loaded down to overflowing with emails like this. Not every blog post is of interest to me at that moment. Now last, but probably the truest, 3) a lot of people don't bother with email anymore, especially for those under 30. If you really want me to email a notice to you, drop me a line at totallyfit63@gmail.com and I will be happy to manually send you a notice.

Why do I write posts on health & fitness, faith, relationships, and emotional health? God said, "Write!" So I write. Every blogger has a unique niche and this is one of those avenues God uses to meet someone where they are. Where are you?

By the way, posts may be odd next week since I will be out of town with  hubby at Sun & Fun in Florida!

In case you missed them, posts of the week:

Food of the Week: Dandelion Greens
Those dandy little yellow flowers sprouting up in your yard have tasty, nutrition loaded leaves! Best picked in the spring (get before you spray with weed killer!), young tender dandelions are a delicious addition to your spring plate! According to About.com, "Dandelion has also been used to regulate blood sugar, promote intestinal flora and fight candida, cleanse the liver, and purify blood. It is also used as a diuretic, a laxative, a fungicide, an antibiotic cream, wart remover, sting soother, and as an anti-cancer food." One cup of raw dandelions is 55 calories worth of Vitamins A, K, C, and B6, folate, magnesium, copper and manganese.  Pick them early while they are tender to use in salads or saute' like spinach or swiss chard. I like mine saute'd with olive oil, onions, and lean ham. Recipes can be found at Epicurious.com. Picture from http://foodfacts.mercola.com.


Exercise of the Week: Pilates
Usually I focus on one exercise, but this time an exercise system. Pilates was developed in WWI by Joseph Pilates to rehabilitate wounded soldiers. Today, it is an exercise system recognized worldwide as a fantastic core toner and back strengthener. It is a mind-body exercise system that does not come part-n-parcel with Zen; however, some Pilates instructors also teach Yoga. By stabilizing the core, originally lying on floor, through mentally focusing on pulling the belly button up and in while breathing effectively, movement of the limbs and upper body are able to move freely and deliberately.

May God bless you!
