April 24th, 2011. MMS/Life Update.

I have still been taking MMS 2 drops per day per hour now since April 11th.  The last few days I have been having joint-pain in my hand/fingers.  I was symptom-free for 10 days.  Granted, the past 3 days I have been thrown completely off schedule and have been eating unhealthy.  I plan to get back to the “basics” so-to-speak, ie: healthy structure/routine tomorrow.  I am speculating that there may be a correlation between my symptoms and junk food, but I will not be able to determine this until more time has gone by.

My current weight is 120.  It fluctuates between 118 and 122.  I am satisfied with my weight.  I would like to eventually incorporate some light exercise into my routine.  I already walk a few times a week, and I am in the process of trying to build a bicycle.  I plan to take the bicycle to the shore and ride along the boardwalk.  I am a bit hesitant about riding in the city.  Note:  I have not ridden a bicycle since age 11 or 12.  I am excited, but wary!  I do not like the idea of riding in the street with cars and would rather ride on the sidewalk, however, it’s illegal.

I am having my period and it’s really heavy.  I am crampy and miserable today.  It is over 80 degrees outside — it went from being cold, rainy and dreary to sunny and sizzling.  I would much rather live somewhere where the weather is in the 70’s all year long.  I hate the extreme hot and too much sun, and I think I’d rather be ice cold than hot.  My skin burns easily.

I am tired today.  As I said, my schedule has been off.  I had someone over here working on some bikes I have for sale and the work took twice as long as expected and so I did not get to sleep until 2AM.  My schedule calls for me to be asleep by 11PM.  As I stated earlier, I will attempt to resume my structure tomorrow.  I am currently working on (juggling) multiple “projects,” ie:  bikes, books, networking opportunities, play, etc.  I am most interested in building a life for myself.

The MMS is starting to taste bad.  I am not sure if it’s because it has been used a lot now and/or has sat near the sun/warm temperature, etc., but it’s starting to become repulsive.  I am taking 1 to 2 drops intermittently.  I am trying to tell myself it’s just “lemon juice,” but it’s beginning to leave an immediate bad aftertaste in my mouth.  I tried mixing it with pomegranate juice without “added” vitamin C and it turns out pomo is an antioxidant so it’s not allowed because it deactivates the MMS!  I ordered Jim Humble’s book on MMS from an Amazon bookseller and the book has not arrived, nor has my other Lyme book shipped via Amazon fulfillment.  I am very frustrated and am going to have to call them tomorrow.  Both items stated they were delivered…

Light, efficient, quality, aesthetic bike is what I am looking for — basically what I look for in everything.  ie, portable, quality, aesthetic.  I am fortunately not having any regrets about ridding the car — so far it seems to be working out; the winter may be another story.  At any rate, I am again just working on building self-sufficiency.  I will be going to some networking events soon for professionals.  I first have to get my hands on some professional attire, ie: white button-down blouse and trousers, although it has been brought to my attention that a blouse I already have can be taken to a tailor and adjusted.

I am going to chill out now, listen to some music, look at some pictures, and eat lunch.  I will then likely hop in the shower to help soothe my cramps and then go upstairs and relax.  I want to go outside but it’s entirely too hot.  Unfortunately this is how Philadelphia is most all the time between April and September.  Blah.  I just want to keep the focus on becoming self-sufficient so that I can live out my values and vision.  I will keep persisting.

March 22nd, 2011. Simple living and structure :)

I believe in living a simple, but rich life.  I know my priorities and what’s important to me, and this in and of itself delivers richness.  As I have minimized and gotten rid of stuff, I have realized just how valuable life is.  I never used to look at life this way, but I am realizing now how we only live once.  It’s a shame when I see people on the streets cussing and treating their children and family bad (disrespectfully).  Life is not meant to be lived that way, for God, or our Higher Power put us here to connect, live, breathe, and share.  Every day I am prioritizing, and the act of prioritizing never gets old to me.  I enjoy it.

Soon, proven that my health improves, I will be able to make some very good money and be able to support myself and eventually a family.  Education, travel, fun, laughter… these are the things that matter to me.  I need flexibility and creativity when it comes to a job/career.  I cannot be stifled, and I need the work to have a creative component.  I am about to buy some plants for my bedroom; I am really excited.  Did you know that plants breathe oxygen?  Yes, they do =)

I can’t wait to nourish them and buy nice organic soil for them and to water them every day.  I am excited.  I am also excited to keep my cat groomed and even more excited to have him shaved again this summer!

Last summer:
He loves sitting in the window, and I love watching him.  I am glad that life is becoming a lot more simple for me, and I am excited to buy a bicycle soon.  Every day I am checking Craigslist to see what comes up.  I am really looking to buy a red, blue, or green — preferably blue (my favorite color aside from green ;)) Schwinn Varsity — women or men’s, although I would prefer to have the standard “men’s” bike with the straight-style bar across the top.

The bike owner said I need a “48cm” frame and a 28″ stand-over height bar; I am pretty short!  5’4 :P  Eh ;)  So right now I am working on (still — a never-ending project) minimizing, sorting, and re-arranging my room.  I think that I am living the life of the “Artist’s Way,” as I believe that others have gone down the same road.

I am excited to eventually have my “structure” be official so that I can start maximizing my personal happiness and success.  The structure will enable me to build a foundation in which to build a successful life.

Back to work!
