I was going to write a long post about abortion and why killing babies is wrong. That last part of the sentence really shouldn’t need explained; it is something a 2 year old would know is wrong…but…I digress. The fact is deep down, you all know that abortion is wrong even if you defend it. Those that defend it merely attempt to justify it.
Just let this sink in…really sink in…according to the laws of this country:
It is a felony (fines and jail time potentials come with this) to tamper with the eggs of a sea turtle.
It is okay to throw away, destroy, etc fertilized eggs of a human and even to go as far as killing the unborn child.
I need an egg explanation as to why turtles (which I dearly love and would never harm) are more valuable to our culture than children (whom I dearly love, would never harm and would do anything to protect). Help me out here…any logical person knows this makes entirely no sense. We need to pray every chance we get for our world to value life again.
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God.

I am always looking for new workouts, healthy eating tips and things of the like. I also know my body pretty well, so know my trouble areas (even if others try to make me feel good but saying there are none). 😉
My thighs and my triceps are my toughest areas to tone. There are different times when they are more in shape than others, but I have a hard time getting that “cut” look if you will. I finally found a pretty easy arm workout that may actually work. I am beginning to see small signs that it may actually give me the look I want. Sooo…I thought I would share. Enjoy!
I am also very interested in eating healthy, but often cave to the sugar monster. Sadly once I cave it is difficult to recover. Sugar is addictive to me…seriously. blah! I am a huge fan of cereal, though, but it needs to be treated as a dessert in my opinion. There is a ton of sugar packed in those boxes. I am also skeptical of protein cereals, because even those that claim to have a high protein content seem to have double the carbs. I used to shy away from Kashi thinking it was just the new fad brand, but I am a new fan of their 7 Whole Grains Puffed Rice Cereal…low cal, no sugar, no flour. Add a banana and some 30 calorie almond milk and you have a filling meal that is pretty healthy. 🙂 And the 30 calorie almond milk is a winner to me…add cinnamon or vanilla and you have your own non-additive, non-sugar, tasty cereal maker. I am also a fan of Special K Protein, because while the carbs are still higher than the grams of protein, they are the lowest that I have found.
That’s all for my random Thursday health and workout update.
