When you can finally walk with one crutch and start to feel like your bad self again. #gainz (and for all of you who thought this accident was alcohol induced, it wasn’t. So stop judging me based on my past mistakes.

Just because you think it....doesn’t mean it’s true. Our mind is constantly playing tricks on us—especially when faced with the unknown. They are called “cognitive distortions” for a reason. It’s okay to second guess your automatic thought. — — — #cbt #cognitivebehavioraltherapy #dbt #checkthefacts #reframing #anxiety #copingskills #therapy #psychology #psychesquad

Where all my PEANUT BUTTER FANS?! 🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🥜 . I had a few people message me about the peanut butter I use in my breakfast protein shake.. ((check back a couple posts to find the yummy recipe)) . I’ve always been a fan of peanut butter, but was recently introduced to PB2- the powdered version of peanut butter. Looking at the facts, PB2 is much healthier, and in my honest opinion, life changing! Since it’s a powder, it can be easily added into so many recipes! Think of all the combos you could make 😳🤯 I think PB2 is much smoother than regular peanut butter; it has the same great taste but doesn’t make you feel so thirsty and make your mouth so sticky feeling. Give it a try and tell me which you prefer!! . . . . #peanutbutter #pb #pb2 #powderedpeanutbutter #yummy #delicious #healthyeats #eathealthy #choosehealthy #checkthefacts #macros #countingmacros #down30by30 #thisorthat #weightloss #weightlossrecipes #creamypeanutbutter #peanutbutterrecipes #peanutbutterlover #peanutbuttersubstitute
I’m learning that as I’ve advanced in my career, work-life balance is one of my downfalls. I find myself not wanting to leave at the end of the day when I get so invested and passionate when I’m at work. I left work today absolutely fried. All I wanted to do was crawl into bed. It’s hurt my self care, my relationships with people I love, and sometimes it makes me kind of a jerk. Quite frankly, it really bums me out. Waking a thin line. I intend on spending my weekend with myself, figuring out my goals in life, what brings me joy outside of work. Most importantly, checking the facts. Send love and encouragement, this is an uncomfortable place for me. However, it will get better in time. ———————————————- I’ll be staying cozy in my @piyogapants pants all weekend. Loving that I can wear them even when it’s 90 degrees. Use my code Grace10 to save monies on these pants. You’ll find yourself cuddling up in them when you also need to practice self care 🌻
Just because you think something, doesn’t make it true! This is one of the simplest concepts but also one of the hardest. We are [over] thinking, feeling human beings. We are constantly in our heads—saying things, perceiving things, and analyzing things..Most of us, probably too much. We naturally treat ourselves differently than those around us. We hold ourselves to a higher standard, usually with unrealistic expectations and then beat ourselves up mentally for being less than those expectations. Less than perfect (for some of us). Some things we say to ourselves, we would never imagine saying to someone else—especially someone we love. No matter how smart or intuitive we might be—we think things all the time that are simply not true. We have the right to feel anything we feel, and own those feelings. Everyone who knows me knows I am a huge advocate for feelings. However, I also believe in not believing everything we tell ourselves—especially the negative things! If I truly believed every little thing I ever told myself—I most likely wouldn’t be here today. I certainly wouldn’t be a very positive person or living a happy life by any means. Feelings are not facts. They are just how you feel. Just because you feel fat, doesn’t mean you are fat. Just because you feel like they don’t love you, doesn’t mean they don’t. Just because you feel stupid, doesn’t mean you are stupid. Just because you feel unworthy doesn’t mean you are are unworthy. Just because you feel that there is something wrong with you, doesn’t mean there is. Feel your feelings—acknowledge them. But then check the facts, and challenge those feelings when your thoughts around those feelings simply aren’t based on facts and aren’t true. Some thoughts just come (at least for me) like rapid fire and can be uncontrollable at times. But what we do with those thoughts—believing or disbelieving, accepting or challenging, holding on or letting go—that is in our control. . . . . . . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #challengethenegative #dbt #checkthefacts #feelingsarentfacts

SEL-ENI-UM (sung to ‘millennium by Robbie Williams... 😉) 🤗Oh the humble Brazil nut - a great source of selenium, which is a vital micro nutrient involved in thyroid and immune function 🛒And now, they even make selenium supplement... which, according to an article that I recently read on the website women’s magazine, is first on the list of supplements that we should actually buy. Ok great, on the shopping list it goes... BUT WAIT! 🔦🔍There is no research(that I can find) that suggests that people who are not deficient in selenium or are not part of a clinical population whereby selenium administration could be beneficial, should supplement with selenium. 🌎Whilst selenium intake in the UK and Europe has been found to be ‘sub-optimal’ and often below the RDA, in the US it is typically higher, and totally depends on the food that you usually eat/diet you follow. ⚠️Selenium was actually originally known as a toxic element, and an extremely high concentration of selenium (more than 122 micrograms/litre) may increase the risk of developing type-2 diabetes. 👩🏻‍⚕️👨🏾‍⚕️So maybe you think you’re deficient? Well that is a possibility, and deficiency can present with symptoms of hair and nail brittleness/loss, nervous system abnormalities and extreme fatigue. But these things could signal other health problems, so if you do think you’re deficient, then seeking professional medical advice and getting a proper test is a better option than spending a fortune on supplements (that could do more harm than good) 🥜🌰And... always remember: supplements are supposed to SUPPLEMENT your diet. If you can (i.e. you’re not allergic to nuts etc. and your body has no trouble absorbing things), getting nutrients from a good source is much more advised. Food sources containing selenium = Brazil nuts, tuna, turkey, rice, fortified cereals, lentils Disclaimer: I’m not a sports nutritionist or dietician... but I can read the research. 🙃 Reference: Rayman, MP. (2012) Selenium and Human Health, The Lancet, 379(9822), 1256-1268. #selenium #brazilnuts #supplements #nutrients #checkthefacts #critical #educate

The woman who fooled the world tells the rise and fall of Belle Gibson. She pretended to have terminal brain cancer and claimed to have cured herself through a healthy diet and lifestyle changes, without any help of conventional medicine. She created her business based on a lie, becoming a symbol of wellness and hope to a lot of people, including cancer patients. The book really illustrates the importance of checking the facts before embracing non-evidence based treatments and following social media influencers. Surprisingly, big companies like Penguin books and Apple were easily fooled by this cancer con. The consequences of anyone claiming they can cure cancer are huge and this was very well exemplified in the book.Taking advantage of people's vulnerability and giving them false hope is outrageous and has to be thoroughly investigated. It's understandable that a patient will try anything they can to get better. And they have the right to choose the treatment they think it's best for them. However, checking the facts and evidence beforehand can be the turning point in the treatment outcome. #cancercouncil #breastcancer #science #checkthefacts #evidence #medicine #healthcare #healthylifestyle #sciencesays #socialmedia #australia #naturaltherapy #penguinbooks #apple #cancerawarness #research #thewomanwhofooledtheworld #bellegibson #wellness #books #dymocks
Regrann from @schneider_iii - - - There will be days when you're forced to make decisions that affect the lives of everyone you love, choices that will change you forever. You reach an age where you realize that being a man isn't about respect or strength, it's about being aware of all the things you touch. CHILDREN face inward, wallow in their own selfish needs. Men face out, take action on the needs of others. Those are the things that will keep you whole. Those are the things to hold onto when you are broken. Every day is a new box. You open it, you take a look at what's inside. You're the one who determines if it's a gift... or a coffin. - -#checkthefacts #andddddstilllll - #regrann

Term Insurance is the most suitable type of life insurance for nearly everyone, however it is often the least recommended. Why is this? Put simply, whole life is more expensive and with that comes higher fees and commissions, most of which are hidden. . Many whole life policies get sold because they are pitched as an “investment”, however they fail to mention that it is a “poor investment”. There are plenty of other long-term investments that outperform these types of policies. Want to know more about why you shouldn’t view insurance as an investment? Head over to our blog (link in bio). . Also, consider this, a $100,000 whole life policy for a healthy 20- or 30-something may cost about $150 per month or more. But the same person can often get a 30-year term-life-insurance policy that pays out $500,000 upon death for as little as $20 a month. . Insurance is, unfortunately, unnecessarily complicated, but it doesn’t need to be. Ask questions and make sure you understand what you are buying.
. ⚠️Beware of fake news on social media . ~ Woodlouse Spider (Dysdera crocata) ~ . . Not new or deadly: - FAKE NEWS - . On 21 August 2018, one Facebook post went viral after it warned of a “new deadly spider” breed which was purportedly spreading across the United States and had killed five people in one week. . This spider is not new to the United States (although it is native to the Mediterranean region), and its bites are not fatal to humans, according to multiple reliable sources including a 2006 study in the scientific journal Toxicon, which concluded that “Bites by the woodlouse spider, Dysdera crocata, are virtually innocuous. The main symptom is minor pain, typically lasting less than 1 h, probably due mostly to mechanical puncture of the skin.” . Furthermore, neither this nor any other “new deadly spider” species killed five people in several southern states during the summer of 2018. We could find no corroboration whatsoever for this claim, despite our consulting several federal and state-level authorities. The Facebook post is therefore also false in claiming that the U.S. government is “working on an anti-venom.” . The author of the post, Gary Neaderhiser, appears to have something of a penchant for fake, scare-mongering Facebook posts, such as the one he published on 21 August 2018, which bore the heading “HEADLESS MANNEQUIN STABS MAN IN MALL WITH KNIFE.” . - Snopes.com . https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/new-deadly-spider/ . . . . #hoax #antihoax #stophoax #fake #fakenews #troll #trolls #factcheck #snopes #facebook #facebookpost #fb #facebookfakenews #checkthefacts #false #spider #woodlousespider #scaremongering #attentionseeking #socialmedia #educate #educateyourself #share #inform #viral #research

Hatred - it's just wrong. And it makes me terribly sad, especially when I see so many young people falling into it. It wasn't terribly long ago that another group was targeted by hatred for seeking the American dream. Sad state of affairs when central and latin Americans become the "new" Irish. This isn't about politics, it isn't about being "blue" or "red", liberal or conservative. It's about being decent, moral human beings! We cannot lump a group of people into one box because of the few bad seeds that make the news. I myself, don't watch the news: it's 90% bad news anyway or propaganda. I choose to love everyone, just as my Lord tells me to. I choose to see the positive. I choose to find the good in people. I choose to find the rainbow in a storm. I choose to believe and do as the WORD says: I love my neighbor as myself. I pray for those that persecute me. I show mercy to those in need. Call me simple, liberal, ignorant, or blind if you must. I know to whom I belong; I lift my eyes unto the hills, where my help comes from. ~ Shannon #stophatred #checkthefacts #mybrotherskeeper #loveoneanother #checkyourheart #sharinghope #findingrainbows
...Mannnn it’s so funny talking to people about bikes and what they believe is the best etc.. based off EGO and not FACTS! Case in point: My neighbor just tried to tell me he’s thinking about buying a 2018 BMW S1000rr because he just raced his buddies at the drag strip and beat a H2....The he goes on to say it has more power in it then the H2r he believes...😳🤔....SAY WHAAAA!!? If you beat a H2 with any litre bike and it wasn’t on spray... you won out of pure “RIDER ERROR!”. That bike is insane STOCK! and then to have the audacity to say it got more power than a H2-R ... uh did you even try and read the damn SPEC SHEET! 😂😂😂🤣🤣 I’m really starting to notice a lot of people be talking bias perceptions and not FACTS. The only bike that could kinda say hello is the Ducati V4 and it would get ate as well so that ain’t saying much..but stroking your ego and saying such nonsense is funny as shit!

A father’s true obsession: * Distance apart, his children’s fragrance a mist. Fatherhood unheard, obsessed his cries dismissed. * Beaten and scorned, lies depart unfaithful lips... Goes on with no voice, pray Abba mercy at the fingertips. * Actions of a parent, twisted with sweet honey, He is a good good father, starting over with no money. * Christ his anchor, bended knee in surrender, Holds tight his tongue, Proverbs 22:6 be gentler. * Seeking for justice, involvement with his nestlings, His pain neglected, a heart to his obsessing. * Out on his own, he finds the treads of his heartbeat, From their school, to their swim, fathering no defeat. * His children his love, he will fight with dignity, To the moon and back, daddy’s strength a symphony. * #fatherhood #advocate #poetry #inspiredbygod #daddysheart #truth #obsession #children #checkthefacts #father #protector #leader #parentrights #equality #grief #missingpieces #wrongfullyaccused #Christ #pray #justice #reclaimhisname #defend #family #amen #daughtersandson #christian #ministry #heartofworship #faith #love Photo 1: The children’s hearts are hooked on daddy’s line 🤴🏻🎣💞 Photo 2: Wild at Heart

Zambian stories 9. I am standing on the pontoon which takes my team and our landcruiser to another bank of river Kobompo.The Kabompo River is one of the main tributaries of the upper Zambezi River. People in Zambia believes that it the deepest river in Africa. That it reaches at some places almost 400 m depth. But it is a legend. The Congo river is the second longest river in Africa after the Nile and the second largest river in the world by discharge volume of water (after the Amazon), and the world's deepest river with measured depths in excess of 220 m!!! But still nice Kobompo river 😊 #kobompo #legends #checkthefacts #zambia #mytravel #work #sweco #zambianstories
👀#Repost @the_truth_hunters with @get_repost ・・・ Anyone who's pondered the powder inside boxed macaroni and cheese has probably intuited that it's not terribly healthy. There's just something about powdered food products that sets off alarm bells. A new report, though, suggests a more concrete reason to be wary: That cheese powder may contain phthalates, a group of chemicals linked to birth defects and learning and behavior problems in children. The study, from a group of organizations that make up the Coalition for Safer Food and Processing, examined 30 cheese products, which were bought in grocery stores in the United States and shipped directly to a testing lab. All but one tested positive for phthalates, with the highest concentrations found in the cheese powder in boxed mac and cheese; ten varieties of mac and cheese were tested (including some labeled organic), and all showed high levels of phthalates. Phthalates aren't intentionally added to food products. Instead, they're found in plastic materials such as tubing (where they're added to increase flexibility) used in food processing. From there, and from some types of packaging, they can seep into food. In an effort to keep children from consuming phthalates, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has banned six types of them from children's toys. Europe has gone further, banning them from products that contact fatty food, which is especially good at absorbing phthalates. The Food and Drug Administration allows them to be used, classifying them as indirect food additives. Research suggests that relatively small amounts of phthalates can disrupt hormone production. Specifically, they block testosterone production in pregnant women, which can affect the reproductive development of male fetuses, leading to birth defects, infertility, low sperm count, and a heightened risk of testicular cancer later in life. Exposure to phthalates in young children has been linked to learning and behavior problems, including aggression and hyperactivity. "Mounting scientific evidence links phthalates to problems with brain development. #Checkthefacts 🤦🏿‍♂️

YET ANOTHER MYTH FROM THE INTERNET. Fat doesn’t take up 4 TIMES as much space as muscle. If we look at volume to weight 1 Litre of Muscle weighs 1060 Grams (2.3lbs), 1Litre of Fat weighs 900 Grams (1.98kbs). In order to have 1060 Grams (2.3lbs) of fat. you need 16% more volume.

“When you’re in a birth, or even a prenatal, you’re not taking care of one person, you’re taking care of two, all the time. And I’ve always said that, you need two people to take care of two people, whether the baby is inside or out.” . Yes, our current featured woman, Paula, is a midwife, but she wears many hats! Since the beginning of her career, she has assumed the role of mentor to many, many burgeoning midwifes. Here she is pictured with her most recent mentee, Hailey, at a homebirth. . “One comment I get from the midwives I’ve mentored is that they felt like I respected them as professionals from the minute they came in. And I benefit from that too. It’s not all altruism. From the moment they start with me, I don’t see them as a student, but as a midwife. So, they learn to step up and be the midwife because they are treated that way. I really want to do that because, even if they don’t have all the training at that point, I can see that is who they are going to be.” .
