• Regarding trials, including of our faith and patience, there are no exemptions—only variations (see Mosiah 23:21). These calisthenics are designed to increase our capacity for happiness and service. Neil A. Maxwell November 2002

Working on my Family Foundations class this week to set a 2 week goal about health and exercise.

What to do, what to choose . . .

Hmmm . . .

I am reading links connected to links.

First to the LDS Provident Living Site for  Physical Health 

From there to the Word of Wisdom and Physical Health link

and then a show stopper: Caffeine.


How silly of me!

How could I not realize that an 8 ounce chocolate bar contains more caffeine than a 12 ounce soda? I am quitting. I just don't think that much caffeine is good for my body. I have mocked caffeine coffee and pop addicts for years. Recently I realized chocoholics are also addicted and MUCH pushier about others joining them in their addiction. You've never seen a pushier pusher than a chocoholic pusher.

Are you one?

Are you an addict?

I think it is important for me to be in control of my body and to never surrender that control to addictions or habits. Wish me luck!
