July 4th 2014 - Remembering the past pursuing the future!

Apologies: Last weekend (06/22/14) was the first weekend that I failed to post since I promised in January of this year to post once a week. I got busy with life and forgot, I apologize. 


July 4th, 2014 is coming this week. Rather than post after-the-fact, I figured I'd post before hand, so that we can take time to reflect on how this nation got started. 
Let us take a journey to the origins of this great nation-The United States of America. 
On July 2nd, 1776 the Second Continental Congress of the American Colonies voted unanimously for a declaration of independence from the Tyranny of England's Crown Rule, now known as the United Kingdom. On July 4th, 1776 that Declaration of Independence was drafted and signed.

So what were the complaints of that fateful letter? What were the situations that brought a group of people to such a state of mind, that they were willing to risk their lives, and the lives of their families, to break from their current government?

Lesson From The Camp - Detox Week!

The Camp - Detox Week ReviewToday I thought I'd change the pace. Rather than write this post into one core topic. I'm going back to the roots of what blogging is all about.

Blog: Web-Log. An online diary. 
I'd like to tell you about my week! 
Healthy Beginnings:
This week started with a fast. I went on a whole food juice only fast starting Sat 06/07 to Sat 06/14. I put fruits and veggies in my blender and drank the juice. That was my only food during this entire time. From sundown on Fri 06/06 to sunrise on Sun 06/15 I drank nothing but juice.

It was an amazing experience. By day 3 all my headaches were gone! I've had headaches for years! I've taken so many Tylenol and Ibuprofen that my blood chemistry was off. I haven't had a headache since. This goes to prove that it wasn't my bones that were the main culprit (I'd thought I needed a chiropractor), it was my body chemistry and nutrition.

My best shake/juice was:Beginner GreenFive Strawberries, Five Dates, Ha…

Healthy Beginnings... A story about a health journey at it's start.

Warning! Candid Confessions Below!
Over the last few years I've become more and more convinced that I am not healthy. I've been irritable, tired, and just plain grumpy. I have had moments of inspiration, like starting this blog, but I've been fighting headaches, fatigue, and down right laziness!

I really like a good Cheeseburger, like Twisted Root Burger Co! I like them so much, that at almost 34 years old I am now 5'9" and 190 Lbs. I was 205 earlier this year, but I've had some healthier eating in the last few months.

New Input: Juice Fasting
So this past week I've been reading Dr. John Gray's book: "The Mars and Venus Diet and Exercise Solution" (Affiliate Link). Amazing book! He goes on to explain that most men in the USA are Dopamine deficient and most women are Serotonin deficient.

In his book, Dr. Gray describes men who are dopamine deficient. One thing he points out that floored me, because it related to many of the areas I've been figh…
