The next time you get in the “health mood“, be sure to include some good multivitamins in your diet plan. We often don’t get all the vitamins and minerals in the foods we eat each day. A vitamin can fill in these nutritional gaps. Food is still the best way to fuel your aging bodies. Some people do a good job in eating a healthy selection of foods each day. They don’t always add a lot of varieties to their diet and this is where those vitamins can serve a real need. Do you take vitamins now? Did you notice a big difference in your energy levels, before and after, you started taking these vitamins?

We squeezed as much of the heat as we could from the sun’s daytime heating. It has just got too cold to stay outdoors. I think I will retire inside for the winter now. No more working or playing outside for me. I will just relax and wait for the upcoming holidays that are fast approaching. I guess this means I will be spending more time on the computer and watching movies on TV. I know there isn’t a lot to do indoors and I am already missing my outside activities. I hope Santa will bring me something to keep me busy and entertained this winter season. A new video game or the latest PS3 model would be nice to have. I really like the adventure games or a good baseball video game. If I am lucky enough to get a Playstation 3 for Christmas this year, I would really only need two video games. One game that is a maze or mystery and you have to figure it out. I like games like that; which challenge the mind some. Then the latest video game for baseball would be my 2nd choice for a video game. One that would included all of the latest MLB players and the rookies from the 2010 baseball season. I believe a new gaming system, my computer, and the movies on TV would be plenty of indoor entertainment, as I wait for the spring to arrive in 2011.
Remember when little girls played with Barbie? How about the Hot Wheel cars for the boys? Those were the days and parents could actually afford the dolls and cars their children like to play with then. Now the toys are much more advanced and you will need more than just batteries to get these modern day toys running. Technology has sent kids into a high tech and expensive place in their parents wallets and pocketbooks. Today’s toys are not that cheap, but it seems the kids still find a way to get a lot of these modern toys. It would be nice to get back to the building blocks, where no batteries or electricity was needed. Now the battery is just one item you will need. Especially if that toy is a cell phone, you will need to get the phone charger too.
I know every year we see new high-tech toys making their way to stores just in time for Christmas. I’m not sure which electronic toys will be hot this year, but I’m sure there will be several. At least the kids can use a laptop computer for more than just fun and games. Some of these items they look at as toys, can be a big help to them in school and learning about other things in the world. Times sure have changed a lot. Who knows how far toys will go, but as long as parents can afford them, you can bet Christmas Day will be full of technology gifts.
This past Wednesday on November the 17th , the Phoenix Suns decided to “take their talents down to South Beach” and take on the Miami Heat. It was a casual mid-week game in the NBA, between two NBA basketball teams who both have great, long time point guards that the fans of Phoenix and Miami both love dearly in Steve Nash for the Suns and Dwayne Wade for the Heat. While the game itself was casual, the fans in attendance was anything but not.
Normally the AP is very good about recognizing stars and those friends and family members who have some form of relation to the stars. Well someone must have fell asleep at the wheel in Miami, as they failed to recognize one of their big NBA stars fiancee. This would be understandable if we were talking about one of the Heat players who is not considered a part of the Big 3 in the Southern Sunshine State. When it comes to D. Wade, LBJ, and CB; you would think a respected source like the Associated Press, would have all their bases covered. This did not happen on Wednesday when the Suns showed up to play the Heat. Indeed the AP would fail to notice that Chris Bosh’s lovely fiancee was in attendance and would even add salt to the wound, by acknowledging her, but still not recognizing who she really is and will one day be. Here is the photo taken by the AP in Miami and below is the exact words the AP had to say about Chris Bosh’s fiancee:
Tennis player Serena Williams, left, watches an NBA basketball game between the Miami Heat and Phoenix Sun in Miami Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2010. The person at right is unidentified.
I believe the person on the right is Adrienne Williams, who is the fiancee of Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh. I knew Chris Bosh, when he was playing 40 miles south of me in Atlanta, Georgia for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Coach Paul Hewitt of G.T. would be the head coach, who was able to persuade the tall, lanky forward from the Lone Star State of Texas, to come East of the Mississippi River and play for the G.T. Yellow Jackets in the A.C.C. or Atlantic Coast Conference in NCAA college basketball. A year later, Bosh would find himself playing North of the Border in Canada for the Toronto Raptors NBA team. The past few years, the Raptors have been able to attract some high flyers like Sonny Weems and Demar Derozenfrom USC. It would have been interesting to see this Toronto team develop, but the former high school standout from the Texas basketball program, would give up on his Canadian team and would decide to fly Southfor the winter, along with Lebron James and join Dwayne Wade in Miami.
The Toronto Raptors just beat a good Houston Rockets team Friday night by a score of 106 to 96. They were led by their young center Andrea Bargnani with 26 points. For those Raptor fans who miss Air Canada or better known as Vince Carter, who is Vinsanitywith his high-flying dunks. They now have the Southern California kid who can leap out of the gym in Demar Derozan. Perhaps Javelle McGhee of the Washington Wizards and Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks are the only two NBA high flyers, who could out jump Derozan. This guy has some serious hops and he is still very young. Looking at the current Raptors roster, they have a solid core of young players in center Bargnani, forward Sonny Weems, guard Demar Derozan, and coming off the bench forward Amir Johnson. Then a solid mix of veteran players like Leanardo Barbosa, who is one of the fastest players in the NBA, and players like Reggie Evans, Linas Kleiza, and Jose Calderon; you have a tough NBA team. This is a great mix of youth and veteran players for this Toronto Raptor team. All of these pieces in place now and a point guard who played very well Friday night with8 assists in 23 minutes of action against the Houston Rockets. Who is the point guard I am speaking of? Oh, this is the same point guard Chris Bosh played with at Georgia Tech in the ACC and his name is Jarrett Jack. This Raptor team is going to win a lot of games without Bosh, but if they had a defensive presence like Bosh in the paint to play with their big man Bargnani. Then late in games you would have a post player in Chris Bosh to score buckets around the block or in the paint; while still having to respect his mid-range jumper. Imagine that, with the speedy Barbosa, who is another go-to-player late in games, who can drive to the basket or take the long jumper for 3.
After the Toronto win in Orlando, they did get their chance to beat Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat. It was a very close game in Miami and the Heat did manage to win by 9 points, with the final score 109 to 100 in the Heat’s favor. But keep in mind, this game was played in SouthFlorida, it took place the next day, after a road game in Orlando with a tough Magic team, and the Raptors did not have two of their starters Linas Kleiza and Reggie Evans or their speedster Leanardo Barbosa. Once again, the AP in the Miami area would make a dumb statement and would go on to say this about the Toronto Raptors and Chris Bosh:
No, if Bosh really looks at it, he would see the Toronto team in the National Basketball Association is a much more talented and deeper team. They are much more ready to play a 7 game series in the playoffs, against another good NBA playoff team. The Miami Heat project has been a huge disappoint to this point and this 3 headed monster doesn’t appear to have the stamina to keep up with another NBA playoff team, in a 7 game post season series. Lebron James didn’t even get 1 month under his belt yet and was already complaining about his role on the team and the high number of minutes he was having to play. Some guys who actually like to play basketball and are team players, treasure the time they get on an NBA court. They would never complain about playing too many minutes. Not only does Lebron look at basketball as a job or work for him, but he is not tough and doesn’t have the endurance to keep up with good NBA teams in the post season action.
Dan Gilbert (owner of Cavaliers) said the Cleveland Cavaliers would win a NBA championship before the Miami Heat would. I will pick up on his direction and words and will go one step further. Since he thinks LeBron’s former team will do better in the next few years, compared to LBJ’s new team. I will say that Chris Bosh is in the same boat; which Dan Gilbert put LeBron James. I will say Chris Bosh’s former NBA team, the Toronto Raptors will win an NBA championship before the Heat or they will win more regular season and post season games; than the Heat over the next several years; while Bosh sports the Heat Jersey in his NBA locker.
3 good players can only take you so far and when one is already crying about minutes played like LeBron is doing in Miami and the young NBA season is not even a month in the books yet. This spells big trouble for James and Bosh in Miami and a deep team like the Raptors; who also have some amazing athletes on their side, like Derozan, Weems, and the speedy Barbosa. One healthy Toronto Raptor team, will run the boys down in South Florida out of the gym on any night they want to get together and play a little B-Ball.
By not eating as much at the dinner table each night, is a good way to start losing weight. If you can find an effective product for suppressing your appetite, this can go a long ways in the battle to lose more weight. Have you ever tried an appetite suppressant before? If not, this might be a good time to try one. Some require a prescription by a doctor, to began using them. If you go with a product like phentermine, then you won’t need a prescription. I have heard a lot of good things about this product. I have never tried it, but a lot of people do eat less, once they began taking Phentermine. If you began eating less than normally do, you’re bound to lose more weight. A product that helps you eat less each day, can be a good way to meet those weight loss goals. It is important for you to have weight loss goals. So you can chart and keep up with it, to see if your current diet plan is working. If eating less doesn’t help much, you may just need to start exercising more.
Once the temperature drops to the cold range outside, is there a fun activity you like to do? Does anything come to mind, you can only do during those cold days of fall and winter? I know a lot of people enjoy the cold weather activities they do every year. I am someone who prefers a nice, sunny and warm day. If it snows, which is rare for my area on North Georgia, I do like the cold weather then.
Too bad we can’t have everyday like a 75 degree, summer time day. We do have to battle through the cold days of winter, so we know what it is like to have a warm summer time day. I guess if winter didn’t exist, we would never know how lucky we are to have warm weather days.
In the fall time, when the leaves are falling from the trees. I use to love running around outside and trying to catch every left that fell off the tress. I don’t think I have the energy to do it these days. For the really cold nights, I do like putting a lot of blankets on my bed and curling up to a good movie on television. Going to sleep at night, when the temperatures are freezing cold outside, seems to make me sleep better. I like waking up cold, better than waking up hot. There is something good about the cold, winter time days we have. I just wonder what outside activities most people like to do; when it is really cold outside. Please share your favorite winter time activities. I think it would be interesting to hear what people like to do outside, when you have to bundle up to go out.
Being on a diet is something that takes time. It is important you allow your body to show results; while continuing to stick to your current diet plan. The diets for quick weight loss will work for some people. In most cases, you need a lot of time to take off the weight, you have built up over the years. It took a long time (in many cases) to put on the extra weight you’re now carrying around. It doesn’t have to talkie that long to take it off, but you will need some time. A quick loss diet formula can be tried, but don’t expect overnight miracles. In most cases, you will only lose a few pounds here and there. No matter what the results are, the important thing is that you stick to your diet plan. It is okay to tweak your diet plan along the way. Make changes where you see they might help or where you need to take it easier on yourself. Anyone can lose weight, if they will stick to a good diet plan. It does take a certain amount of determination and this will all depend, on just how determined you are, to lose more weight.
