Diet Supplements

My husband and I are both under stress for few months now due to job lost. It isn't hard to find a job especially that there are more people who need jobs than jobs to be filled. Good thing my husband got his old job back and we need to move out of state in a matter of two weeks. This is causing stress again on our part. Moving, indeed can be stressful. Anyway, this stress thing is making us hard to lose weight; and we can't think of a way to lose weight that taking diet supplements because exercising is not an option right now. I am glad I have found a website that do reviews on diet pills in the market today. It isn't easy to choose which one is best, effective and affordable and is indeed a great help. Are you having difficulty losing weight? Why not check the website now! I am pretty sure they have the diet supplement that fits your budget and need.

Busy as a Bee, still...

Moving, as they say can be stressful and I think they are right; I am glad we are almost done with packing our stuffs. This afternoon, we will be picking the truck up at Richmond, hopefully we would be able to load it with not so heavy boxes before it gets dark. We will also have my brother in-law and his family visit us for the last time before we head back to Texas on Monday afternoon. I am excited and at the same time sad. I just hope that Matt gets the job in Durham so we won't have to move far. Oh well, I can only hope he gets the job for it has better benefits and better income. If that happens, he will be working and staying in NC while Jake and I stays in Texas for a year. It will be fun and hard at first, but am sure we will make it.

6 Foods That Ruin Your Smile

Dr. Catrise Austin, Cosmetic Dentist to the stars and founder of VIP Smiles, weighs in on which foods and drinks could be destroying your smile.

1. Coffee and Tea. Caffeine addicts might cringe, but the dark pigmentation in these popular morning beverages can stain your teeth. "The rule of thumb is that anything that can stain a white t-shirt can harm the color of your smile," says Austin. If you consume these beverages daily, you may lose your white smile. Fortunately, these types of stains can be removed easily with a professional cleaning from your dentist. You should also be aware of how much sugar you're adding to your coffee or tea—too much can contribute to cavities.

2. Red Wine. It may be good for the heart, but red wine is bad for maintaining a bright smile. The red color can discolor your teeth over time, giving your smile a dull appearance. The same goes for dark berries, such as blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries.

3. Dark Colas. Dark colas are just as bad for the color of your teeth as coffee and teas. Most sodas are acidic and have a high sugar content, both of which can rot your teeth over time. If you don't brush or rinse your mouth after drinking colas, the acid and sugar will continue to stick to your teeth long after you finish the drink, and they'll continue to do their dirty work.
Lots of sugar and acid in the following three foods could give you fewer reasons to smile.

4. Chocolate. Like coffee, the dark and rich texture of certain types of chocolate can wear away and discolor the tooth enamel. The high sugar content also leads to cavities and decay if teeth are not properly brushed

5. Candy. It's well known that the sugar content of candy can erode the teeth's enamel and lead to cavities, but biting down on hard candies can also cause fracture lines or chips in your teeth, ruining the overall appearance of your smile.

6. Citrus Fruits. Fruits such as lemons and limes are highly acidic. If acid frequently comes into direct contact with the teeth's enamel, over time, it can erode your teeth by causing craters, notches, or holes.

Equal Partnership

"The family proclamation states that a husband and wife should be equal partners. I feel assured that every wife in the Church would welcome that opportunity and support it. Whether it occurs or not depends upon the husband. Many husbands practice equal partnership with their companion to the benefit of both and the blessing of their children. However, many do not. I encourage any man who is reluctant to develop an equal partnership with his wife to obey the counsel inspired by the Lord and do it. Equal partnership yields its greatest benefit when both husband and wife seek the will of the Lord in making important decisions for themselves and for their family."

In Need of Indoor Plumbing Repair?

It is very important to keep a well-maintained plumbing system in our home or else it would be a disaster if it breaks. Usually, when we run into plumbing problem at home, my husband does the job since it not that of a big deal. So far, we managed to live without encountering big indoor plumbing problem.

Now, every time I go shopping, I make sure to look at the latest trend on jewelry like beads. So far, I haven't found any beaded jewelry that I like, so I decided to look online and found an online store that sells beautiful, high-quality, hand-made, beaded personal adornment products that are proudly made in the USA.

Role of Husbands in Child Rearing

"What more can a husband do to support his wife, the mother of their children? First, show extra appreciation and give more validation for what your wife does every day. Notice things and say thank you—often. Schedule some evenings together, just the two of you.

"Second, have a regular time to talk with your wife about each child's needs and what you can do to help.

"Third, give your wife a 'day away' now and then. Just take over the household and give your wife a break from her daily responsibilities. Taking over for a while will greatly enhance your appreciation of what your wife does. . . .

"Fourth, come home from work and take an active role with your family. Don't put work, friends, or sports ahead of listening to, playing with, and teaching your children."

M. Russell Ballard, "Daughters of God," Ensign, May 2008, 110

Happiness from Helping Others

"President Gordon B. Hinckley believed in the healing power of service. After the death of his wife, he provided a great example to the Church in the way he immersed himself in work and in serving others. It is told that President Hinckley remarked to one woman who had recently lost her husband, 'Work will cure your grief. Serve others.'

"Those are profound words. As we lose ourselves in the service of others, we discover our own lives and our own happiness.

"President Lorenzo Snow expressed a similar thought: 'When you find yourselves a little gloomy, look around you and find somebody that is in a worse plight than yourself; go to him and find out what the trouble is, then try to remove it with the wisdom which the Lord bestows upon you; and the first thing you know, your gloom is gone, you feel light, the Spirit of the Lord is upon you, and everything seems illuminated' (in Conference Report, Apr. 1899, 2–3).

"In today's world of pop psychology, junk TV, and feel-good self-help manuals, this advice may seem counterintuitive. We are sometimes told that the answer to our ills is to look inward, to indulge ourselves, to spend first and pay later, and to satisfy our own desires even at the expense of those around us. While there are times when it is prudent to look first to our own needs, in the long run it doesn't lead to lasting happiness."

Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "Happiness, Your Heritage".

Children Helping Mothers

"What can children, even young children, do [to help their mothers]? Now, you children, please listen to me because there are some simple things you can do to help your mother.

"You can pick up your toys when you are finished playing with them, and when you get a little older, you can make your bed, help with the dishes, and do other chores—without being asked.

"You can say thank you more often when you finish a nice meal, when a story is read to you at bedtime, or when clean clothes are put in your drawers.

"Most of all, you can put your arms around your mother often and tell her you love her."

M. Russell Ballard, "Daughters of God".

Bowers Powers

A month ago while doing grocery shopping, I manage to talk with one of acquaintances who happened to work at that big store She mentioned to me that they were busy because they just opened the store after being closed for nearly six hours. I was shocked to here that! I cannot believe what I just heard! A big store like that couldn't afford to have their own generators? What a shame as well as big lost to them. They probably learned their lesson well with that experienced. If I were the owner of that store, that is one thing I would go without. They could have bought a Diesel Generator. I know of a company that sells Diesel Generators that are designed and engineered for industrial and big company such as that big store, as well as rental applications that need quiet operation and maximum and reliable performance.

What Kind of Communicator Are You?

You Communicate Clearly

You're the type of person who thinks before you talk. You speak in an ordered, insightful, and concise way.

You speak authoritatively and with conviction. If you take the time to say something, you stand behind it.

You only say what you need to. You believe that your words are strongest when they're not diluted.

When you have a lot to say, you map out your words ahead of time. You prefer to speak in bullet points.

What Kind of Communicator Are You?

The result described me exactly the way I communicate. I can be emotional when upset, but will frankly say the thing you would want to hear.

Moving Can Be Stressful

As an expert in stress management, I have spoken to thousands of individuals in corporate and other business settings. Many of these people have moved as a result of job changes. I have also worked with thousands of individuals who have decided to move for personal reasons. My conclusion is probably no surprise to you: moving can be stressful.

The reasons for the stress may be, however, a little more surprising. Here are several reasons for our stress when we move.

Security Alert
Our homes provide security. They shelter us from the elements and from the outside world. When we make a move, we are giving up known levels of security and trading them for unknown security. This loss of security adds stress as part of our brains now have to be on the alert for potential dangers. It may takes weeks or months before we feel safe in the new environment.

Memory Triggers
As we pack up our years of accumulated belongings, we are also forcing ourselves to review our lives. Although many of our possessions will trigger positive memories, some of them may trigger painful memories. We may find old photographs, mementos, letters, or clothing that remind us of losses. We must also make decisions about what to keep and what to discard. These discards can also represent losses as we leave our past lives behind.

Reprogramming Blues
Once we have lived in a home or apartment for many months, we become used to where we keep our things. We learn the locations of rooms, doors, steps, windows, cabinets, electrical and water outlets, and hundreds of other objects. As we learn these locations, our brain is programmed to remember them. When we move, we have to de-program our brains and reprogram them for the new locations. This forces our brains to work overtime in subtle ways that add to our stress and cause fatigue.

Support System Sacrifice
Our old community provided obvious and hidden supports. We learned the locations and hours of the local grocery stores, pharmacies, hospitals, religious and school institutions. We developed some acquaintances and friendships. In moving, we lose those support systems and have to find replacements. Although the new ones may be an improvement, it still requires effort on our parts to find them and make them part of our new lives.

Yes, moving is stressful. It does help, however, to become aware of these hidden sources of stress. Knowing the sources of our stress can also point us toward some solutions so that we can overcome the stress as quickly as possible.

Brand Name Shoes for Great Price!

Shopping is every women's favorite thing to do. And also a therapy for me especially when I am bored. But that doesn't mean I go shop often or buy expensive stuffs. I am a frugal person. I only shop with things we really need. With the economic turndown, most people look for ways to save and that means buying stuffs that are on sale or on a discount price. We don't have to compromise the quality of thing when buying stuffs like clothes or shoes for instance. I have found this website which is owned by a Canadian company. This company has been on business since 1996 and sells brand name Shoes such as Converse, Mudd, Ugg, and more. I like it that they have Skechers Shoes too, that are on sale.

Reliable Electrician in Phoenix

The one thing that I am really scared about is fire. Every time I heard news about fire especially in California it makes me feel sad for those people who have lost everything. I would prefer to experience flood than fire! Anyway, last night while we were packing our stuffs up for our move to Texas next month, my son saw those candles I was trying to get rid off and asked if he can have them and I sad yes. But the the bad thing is that, he wanted us to light it up! Oh no! We told him, because it is dangerous. He kept insisting so we decided to take it away from him. Yup, we don't want to start fire! Candle is not the only one that causes fire, electrical installations, too! And if you are not careful who to hire to install your electrical wiring, you and your family would be in danger. How many times we heard on the news fire caused by faulty wirings? Many, isn't it? Before hiring electrician to do job for you, you might want to consider hiring one with enough skills, expertise, and knowledge about wirings and stuffs related to electricity. He should also be insured, licensed because our safety is at stake here. And if you know what I mean. And if you live in Arizona, particularly in Phoenix area, Phoenix Electrician is the best one to go to, for they have those qualifications you are looking for, for an electrician. Why not visit their website now?

Random Tuesday Thoughts


I don't like to write a post that requires coherent thoughts, so here is my very first entry for this week.

  • My son's room is a total mess. I always tell him to put his toys and books away after he is done playing and reading, but for some reason he doesn't seem to remember that.

  • My husband wanted to lose weight, but can not control himself from eating foods rich in carbohydrates and sugar. I am tired of reminding him to watch his blood sugar level.

  • I keep telling myself that I need to finish packing the box that we will be sending to the Philippines on Saturday, but I am so busy working in front of the computer trying to finish my never ending tasks.

  • I know drinking sodas whether it is diet or nor will ruin my teeth eventually, but I can't stop myself from doing it. Do I really want to stop? Is what my hubby keeps telling me especially today.

  • Going to see a doctor means, I need to pay for it myself because we don't have any insurance except my son. And my hubby seems to forget about that. Tomorrow, I have to do my routine lab work at the hospital.

  • I need to learn injecting insulin without my hubby's help, but I don't have courage to do that. Every night, I gave my husband hard time sticking needle on my arm and he is still smiles at me...

Best Roofing in Washington, DC

For me, the roof is the the most important part of the house. That is why we need to make sure that there is no leaking problem going on with it. A small roof leak can cause big problem if it is left unattended or neglected. Moisture can cause a big damage on roof, ceiling and even wall. My father in-law called a couple of days ago telling us about their problem on their roof. Since they are leaving for a month vacation pretty soon, they want everything in their house fix and in order. He said he contacted a contractor and was not satisfied with the outcome of their conversations. He decided to fix their roof himself since the leak is just small. He was the one who built their house and he said he knew what to do. He fixed it and save bunch of money. But if you want someone who is professional to do the job for you, you better call Washington Roofer. If you live in Washington area, MJ Lee Construction Co. Inc is the roofer you can rely on them when it comes to service. They do great job making you feel safe and secure for they specialize on roofing services. If you want to make sure, you better check them Better Business Bureau because they have all the necessary information when it comes to roofer with good reputation. You also need to make sure that they are licensed, insured and have state license. For more information, visit

Avoid Restaurant Catastrophes

To us, a restaurant catastrophe isn’t just when a waiter spills something on you or when you accidentally miscalculate the tip. When it comes to your health, a catastrophe is what can happen in the first and last 10 minutes of a meal. But it doesn’t have to. Here’s how to dine out, enjoy your meal, and be trim and healthy, too:

Before You Go

Don’t arrive starving! Eat a little healthy fat -- like about six walnut halves -- before a meal. The healthy fat in walnuts triggers a chain reaction that slows the rate at which your stomach empties, so you’ll feel fuller faster. But the chain reaction takes 30 minutes, so plan for it.

The First 10 Minutes

• Raise a glass.
Of water. To your lips. This can fill you up, so you don’t overeat.

• Ask for cut-up veggies instead of bread. Most quality restaurants (including inexpensive ones) provide this option.

• Dip in olive oil. If the restaurant brings you whole-grain bread, dip it in olive oil. People who opt for this over butter eat less bread.

• Request the bottles. Order oil and vinegar on the side. Relying on the kitchen to dress your salad -- even with oil and vinegar -- can deliver as many as 450 extra calories!

The Last 10 Minutes

• Share.
Get one dessert for every four or five people, and have just a few bites. If there are just two of you, take half of the dessert home, and freeze it for a special occasion.

• Savor your wine. Ending a meal with a glass of wine lets you avoid the cloying aftertaste of sweets . . . and helps you avoid calorie-bombs, too.

• Go European. Do what many Europeans do: Make salad the last thing you eat.
