Lean Green Smoothie. Spinach, Kale, Pineapple, Oranges, topped with Chia seeds . Yum! Here is my story. Smoothies always make me feel alive. I can talk about them for hours.
In June 2020, I was hospitalized when I used to have low blood cells. I nearly died and God showed out for me leading me to the right connections and better healthy choices internally. Ever since then, I have been hooked on leafy greens and plants; they have changed my life and so many things lol
My passion with good health was always about working out but when you learn more about how foods can heal, you become obsessed and healthier. I left my banking job and just didn’t feel like it was me; realizing I was just there for the wrong reason. I’m now with a science lab where I am able to help people fight colon cancer and have good health.
When I would have stressful days working for a bank and feeling like a machine I was able to lower blood pressure because of yoga- in which I later received my yoga teacher certification because of that lol Sometimes negative things can become positive things that can lead to a blessing in disguise. Your passion. ❤ Cheers to your good health!
Since I am now a certified yoga instructor and work for a science lab to help people with colon cancer testing, the deeper studies of healthy food intrigues me. It’s amazing how God is so smart, that He put the medicine in the plants for us.
This smoothie was decided when the only fruits and veggies I had left in the house were spinach, Kale and pineapples. I usually will add strawberries in my smoothie but to my surprise the items I had tasted EVEN better. I was also interested in the benefits of the nutrients of each. I thonk Continue to read below for some of the positive uses and you can even research more but this was just some of the uses that stood out to me. *** Ingredients: 1 cup of spinach Kale mix and 1 cup of pineapple.l and 1/2 cup of almond milk.

Did you know it boosts your fertility and immune as well? ***Pineapple helps with joints, prevents cancer, arthritis and is also good with any irritable bowl syndrome.
If anyone loves makeup and gets excited about makeup and shopping then it would have to be me because it’s fun and girly. lol I wish CoverGirl Queen Collection was still in Walmart because it was always my go to but it got played out. Fenty cosmetics is one of my favorites so I’ll be ordering again. I am wearing Milani Cosmetics liquid concealer foundation and Black Radiance right now which is good quality and good price. I contoured/highlighted with Juvia’s Place eyeshadow pallet, you can find it at Ulta. It has actually been a year since I’ve arched my brows so thanks for good brow pencil and eyeliner. The lipstick is Sunburst by MaryKay and lined with MAC chocolate lipliner. The eyeshadow is a blend of orange brown and tan since we are in the last days left of autumn
Now that this title has gotten your attention, you ever wonder why some people are mean or grumpy? You ever notice how you can be talking with them and they give you a nasty attitude? You may spend hours trying to figure out what you did or is it something about you to be treated this way and then you allow yourself to consume this energy from them. Energy never dies, it travels. Positive energy can travel or negative energy can travel in you. If someone is in a bad mood it can affect you as well, allowing you to mimic their actions. People may be mean because of things they have going on. maybe they are going through a divorce, maybe they have annoying kids, maybe they feel they can’t do things right in life. (You never know) I remember once I had this manager who always seemed upset and stubborn, basically like a sarcastic- snobby- smart ass. I would wonder how can someone be so mean. He randomly mentioned he can’t remember the last time he had good sleep. After hearing this, I put the clues together and realized his negative attitude came from him not taking care of himself. When you do not get enough sleep you can start your day off wrong and blow people off, affecting their mood because you were not pleasant.
Another situation was that a person I know was always grumpy and being snappy. During a random conversation, they mentioned they needed a laxative or a good bowel movement. (BINGO! That is their reason. They are constipated and feeling uncomfortable due to not releasing the stored food lol) So whenever people are rude to you for no apparent reason you have to stop to think, maybe they have issues in their personal life and are upset at the world. If you are someone not always happy or feeling well, please try to be nice to others because it does not give you a reason to take it out on them; that is how so many bad things happen in the world today due to negative energy from others.
Internet had issues this weekend (although I could still catch Wi-Fi on my phone) but I barely come on or stay on. Anyway, my niece and nephew stayed over as usual, I had to show them so many fun things that can be done without the internet and I also wanted to show them how to not feel like they need it all the time because they didn’t know what else to do lol. We painted, walked, played games, told stories and wrote stories, listened to my niece sing songs, I caught up on my spring/summer book reading and we watched SpongeBob lol
If you have kids, try to show them that it’s a difference. If you or your kid can’t live it without it (besides work or school) then it’s an issue. I have always been close to my niece and nephew, I always spend time with them without using the internet, but we had to disconnect to really really connect. They had no Wi-Fi and needed me for more entertainment. Sometimes this is what is needed in today’s society. So many people are wired to their devices and missing out on closer bonding. Our generation didn’t really have such an obsession for the internet, but I don’t want this generation to use it as a crutch at a young age. Show our babies how to have fun in other ways. ❤❤❤ Here is a photo below of my nephew’s amazing art work lol They were bored sick of my internet, but we had the best of time and we escaped to the 80s for the moment.
With Valentine’s Day approaching sometimes Cupid starts to point his arrow at some of the most surprising targets. Some of us will spend this day saying it’s no big deal (bc it isn’t) some of us will enjoy it with a bucket of ice cream and a LMN movie while others will go all out celebrating it with someone we love (rather it be a loving partner, a date, family or our girlfriends) …
Well, after a month of dropping hints, I finally told my best friend of nearly 10 years that I wanted him to be my Valentine and he agreed… Things seem old fashioned and that’s what I like about him. He has always been there for me and this will be my 2nd ever Valentine’s EVER. So I would be more than honored to celebrate it with no one other than one of the closest friends in my life that I trust.. lol
He always gives me and my mom the best advice😊 What’s funny is that we’re born 1 month and 1 day apart..same life path numbers. .twin flames.. lol As soon as he said “sure babe.” I got nervous 😩 not sure why when he’s HIM… He’s been through so many things with me and so I have with him.
Lol kinda wanna change my mind bc I am still in relax mode after my final iron transfusion last week lol So I dont wanna get cute or do much right now 😂
but he says “I’m sure you’re gorgeous, babe”… lol 🤦♀️🥰 Now I can’t back out lol We’ll just enjoy pizza and laugh at things as usual. 😂 Virtual amidst covid perhaps. He’s my best friend and that’s all that matters.
One of my doctors was so touched today when I went for my follow up appointment. She thanked me for the thank you card and she said that simple cards like that to healthcare workers means so much more to them than just money a lot of times… She said she was taking photos of my card and showing the staff. 😊
I talk so fast around her when trying to tell so much because we have a little bit of time at appointments but a lot to say lol She has become like a second sister. …My story about how I had prayed for countless months to be healed and how my spirit led me to her.. (the only doctor after 6 months of 2 previous opinions) I am a black woman with Creole descent and so is she. Sadly I thought the reason other doctors didn’t take my situation serious was because I was in the minority and when I choose her she could relate. ..bc this is also something that was common in African American women. She knew how to permanently stop the reason for my loss of blood cells with a simple solution that had saved my future and my future generation.
It was so inspiring; to her, myself and a few others I shared that part of my life with..
I won’t reveal her name yet until I am ready to one day tell everything I went through…the entire story! One day I will tell of this full blessed testimony of how God can lead you to the right people in life to help with you with things that seemed impossiable and when others said no…even when it took 3 opinions like it did with me 😊..as of now I am thankful, overwhelmed and happy. 😊
I overheard a woman saying that Godly people can’t envy lol I wanted to remind her the story I remembered from my bible study group days of how a God fearing king named King Saul had such envy for a sheppard boy named David who praised him and admired him..
David did so much to assist him in the palace while admiring…yet King Saul was jealous of him..envied him for being closer to God and tried to kill him lol People can sometimes envy your relationship with God.
I was shocked when I found that out as a teenager..my aunt used to explain that to us. They can have everything in life- lots of money, fancy cars, a happy marriage, a family, an education, talent- and yet STILL envy others…even envy those that are inspired by them. Don’t be blinded.
Remain faithful to doing good on earth and doing the right thing. Your light will shine to God as long as you are focused and balanced with self.
I know I am late, but I finally watched two of the Fifty Shades series (Fifty Shades Freed and Fifty Shades Darker) …..but I ended up going backwards though…I still have to see Part 1. 🤦♀️😂 Backwards binger, no? However, I think I was more into Anastacia’s lip stick she wore so I had to google what kind she was wearing because sis’s lips were POPPING!!! I found out she wore a set from MAC so remind me to get it for my birthday lol
Other than that it was an okay movie bc I love classy professional men with a bit of a wild side to them 😂 The actor that played as Christian didn’t seem as masculine enough to me maybe if he had more facial hair…his features looked so innocent to be the dominant role as Mr. Grey lol
I believe he may have had some mental issues so I will have to view part 1. I think he was drawn to Ana because she didn’t fully give him all of her control unlike those desperate crazy Liah. 😂 She was like “What do you have that I don’t?” 🙄 Ummm for one she had to have had some standards and…great sex and sweet side to her that made Christian so comfortable with her. As for Elena (Kim Bassinger the cougar) she was hating too… lol
So I have decided to go on an all girls trip/spa retreat in Miami with some ladies I met from Facebook groups for women in need of making other female friends. That sounds desperate, no? but I love this group and I really bond and click with these other girls. I’ve always wanted to go on a girls trip, but no chics have asked to travel with me. I sure don’t want to travel alone when I go on my getaway trips for my regular me-time. As you have noticed, I don’t really have as many close girlfriends. 😦 lol The only one I am close to is married and I know she has other responsibilities and such, which I humbly respect. (love her..) The other few close friends I have are 2 guys and how would I be able to enjoy doing girly things with them? lol.
I’ve always wanted to have a group of girlfriends like on The Golden Girls or Waiting Exhale, where we can laugh and enjoy the physical view of life on earth…TOGETHER. I want to be on Miami beach taking selfies with a group of girlfriends and making memories. 🙂 Some women have asked to do things with me were women that had a history of being mean/petty towards or just wanted to know my information on things…so I wouldn’t want any awkward feelings. Sometimes finding your tribe is hard though. It would just be nice to have a group that doesn’t act as if I did something wrong or serve me with attitude for no reason or use me. I know these new friends and I will hit it off when we explore Miami together. I CAN’T WAIT! I really am looking forward to this trip because it is definitely needed. I can hear the sound of the beach music down the street and I can smell the coconut drinks at the tiki bar. We’ll have to shop at the mall (Dolphin Mall) and the boutiques in the plaza as we laugh along our way. CAN’T WAIT! CAN’T WAIT!
