Black Lives Matter is Misunderstood.

I see people still don't fully understand...Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence and perceived systemic racism toward black people. BLM regularly holds protests against police killings of black people and broader issues of racial profiling, police brutality, and racial inequality in the United States criminal justice system.

Crime is going to happen period. Black on Black crime is not a thing. It's made up to make us think that we kill each other at a rate more alarming than any other race kills people of their race. So while "Black on Black" murder is bad...as long as people murder "Race on Race" crime will exist because statistically speaking you have a greater chance of killing someone of your own race because we usually live in communities with those of our own race.

Now what is NOT typical is when police officers or other people in power kill or treat wrongly one race disproportionately than other races. THAT is what BLM is about. Asking them to speak out on every crime that happens involving a black person would cause their mission to be so diluted that they would essentially not have a mission.

I'm just really sick of hearing people who aren't doing anything but complaining complain without having all the facts.

Intermittent Fasting....Let's GO!

So I've been hearing a lot about Intermittent fasting lately and I'm officially ready to give it a try. Intermittent fasting is not a diet, but rather a dieting pattern. ... By fasting and then feasting on purpose, intermittent fasting generally means that you consume your calories during a specific window of the day, and choose not to eat food for a larger window of time. I am diabetic so I am going to do 9 hours of eating and 15 hours of fasting. I will post often on my progress. I've created 2 documents to help me plan. While most people say you can eat "whatever you want" I am going to try to be mindful of what I eat and stick to one dessert per day. I can't quit cold turkey on the processed sugars because I'm an addict!!!!

Wish me luck! Have any of you tried IF? Comment below.

If you're interested in the files I'm using, email me and I'll send them to you. No need to recreate the wheel.

BOOK REVIEW: "I Almost Forgot About You" by Terry McMillan

While I'm not a Terry McMillan fanatic, I do usually enjoy her books. This title was hard to read and confusing from the very beginning. I understand that Georgia is on a mission to find herself but the books is long and gets boring often. Plus there are way too many characters to keep up with. I will still pick up a Terry McMillan book in the future but I do not recommend this book.



BOOK REVIEW: Habit Changers by M.J. Ryan

I really enjoyed reading this book. Habit changing is one of things I've focused on in my 30s as I try to make changes in my life that will make me a better person. This book makes habit changing actually seem doable. I have learned how to reach my goals by breaking things down and doing it in a way that makes it easier and more likely for me to accomplish. I recommend this book to anyone looking to make positive changes in their life.


Here's two links to purchase the book.
