It’s common; way too common. You ask someone to do something or you ask them why they didn’t do something & you constantly hear excuse after excuse for a person not being able to do something or even trying.

Any Celebrity Apprentice fans? On Sunday night’s episode Gary Busey shocked everyone by winning the second challenge of this season and spelled out his victory by stating the meaning behind the word team: “T- is for Together, E-Is for Everyone, A-id for Achieves, and M-More!” As hard it may be to understand the thought process of Gary at times, he got this point right on! The meaning behind the acronym of the word “team” truly speaks volumes. Understanding the significance and strength from working as a “team” holds true and this definition is most often heard in the success of business franchises, private organizations, and sports teams. It also holds true in the world of autism.
Diabetes is a disease in which the body is unable to produce or unable to properly use and store glucose (a form of sugar). Glucose backs up in the bloodstream — causing one’s blood glucose or “sugar” to rise too high. And, as most people know there are 2 types of diabetes: Type 1 – is when the body completely stops producing any insulin, a hormone that enables the body to use glucose found in foods for energy; Type 2 – occurs when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin and/or is unable to use insulin properly (insulin resistance).
Most people have something that they regret in life. But new study found that if you can’t shake your regrets, then it could cause long-term health problems. Having regrets and not trying to “undo” them may not kill you, but it can physically make you very ill. On the other hand, dealing with regrets positively can make you emotionally and physically healthier.
Many of you are probably familiar with First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign which is an initiative to end obesity by targeting the way we and our children think about nutrition and physical activity. Through Let’s Move, people in a variety of influential roles (parents, local officials, mayors, healthcare providers, and others) are urged to be leaders for healthy and active lifestyles. The campaign includes one goal of inspiring at least one million Americans to be active for 5 days/week for at least 6 out of 8 weeks.
I was recently made aware of a number of new documents and resources related to people with disabilities. This one specifically caught my eye. It’s from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and is on the unmet health care needs for people with disabilities (http://www.cdc.gov/VitalSigns/pdf/2010-11-vitalsigns.pdf).
As I walked down the isle of Target today, I noticed the ridiculous number of special treat items that seem to magically appear only during this time of the year. The yard of red licorice (which I bought for a family member) was by far the healthiest option in comparison to it’s neighbors; the super size Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup (almost 1140 calories per cup) and the Peeps milk chocolate trees, which just sound disgusting.
About this time of year we enter the festival of foods and family: Thanksgiving.
And Thanksgiving Day is just the beginning of the party season with its abundance of cookies, candy, pie, cakes and other delights of the season. It brings us joy to share delicious foods and special drinks with our family and friends. Delicious at the time! But we are so sorry afterwards.
