Get Serious about Health

I dabble with losing weight. I try stuff that helps a bit and for whatever reason I quit doing those things. But the time has come to get serious about losing weight. Went to the doctor this week and my A1C levels are 6.4 which is prediabetes, my triglycerides were 350 (although my other cholesterol levels were optimal, and my blood pressure keeps going up. It was 172/100. I went on blood pressure medicine even though in the past I have refused to take it. It is a mild pill with a diuretic in it. I must have had a ton of fluid on me since in 2 days I have lost 10 lbs.

Thankfully God has already led me to a bible study group based on the book Made to Crave and I have started making progress on overeating. I have had this book for ages but its hard to do a bible study and dig in deep by yourself. I feel though as this time I will be able to finally get past this hurdle and lose weight.

One huge challenge for me is exercise. I have gained so much that with my health issues I hurt so much that moving isn't a good thing. So I think I will order myself a dvd on Amazon of easy exercises to start with.

I love pens. I buy them all the time.I have all sorts of unusual pens. I was excited to get a chance to review the Inkjoy pens. I don't believe I have ever bought Inkjoy before but I can assure you it won't be the last time. I love how smooth the Inkjoy pens write. They just glide across the paper. I love all the bright colors. My daughter said these are the exact kind of pens she calls her crossword pens because they write so well on paper so she stole one from me :). 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Smiley 360 Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Minzos 4-In-1 TurboPen for Tablet & SmartPhone Review

Product Description
Universal Stylus Pen for Smartphone & Tablet - Minzos 4-In-1 Turbo Pen - Stylus, Ball Point Pen, Led Light & Presentation Pointer - Works w. Apple iPad Air/2/Mini/iPhone 5/5s/5c/4s, Nexus 5/7, Galaxy Tab 4/3/2, Galaxy S5/S4, HTC One M8/M7 (Silver) and Most Tablet and Smartphones.

Unveiling the 4 in 1 TurboPen by Minzos A stylus/ballpoint pen/LED flashlight/laser pointer:

The TurboPen is designed for comfort and practicality with attention to detail. Whether you need to jot down notes in the boardroom or the classroom, on your legal pad or your ipad, you will do so in style with this slim, well balanced Hi-Tech tool.

The TurboPen weighs in at 1.3 oz. and is just over 5 inches tall with a 3/8 in. diameter. Perfect dimensions to fit snugly in your hand, solid and substantial enough to give you the impression that it's writing all by itself. The ballpoint glides across the paper and the stylus silently slides around the screen. All without cramping your hand or scarring your device screen.

For less than what many charge for a non-Apple-certified charger, Minzos gives you Voltanium X. Apple-certified, tested and proven, this case will handle your power needs with ease and style. You want more and you deserve more. Minzos includes a TurboPenTM, screen protector - everything you need, right in the box.

The bright LED flashlight is a welcome bonus to have handy when you are trying to read the menu in your favorite restaurant or the playbill in the theater or at your child's recital.

The precision laser pointer will add style to your next presentation, simplify your life with the Minzos TurboPen.

I have posted often how much I love my Kindle fire yet I haven't been able to find a stylus that I really liked. I have found one now. The Minzos Turbo Pen is so nice. It isn't heavy but it feels substantial in my fingers. Its not flimsy feeling or bulky but just perfect. I have tried a variety of styluses since getting my Kindle but none of them really worked well. One fell apart, one the stylus tip broke, etc. Most of the styluses I have used just didn't work well on a touch screen. It was easier to use my finger but that left my Kindle with icky fingerprints all over it. The TurboPen worked perfect on my touchscreen.  My dogs and I had a blast playing with the presentation pointer :). They chase the red dot everywhere. The LED light makes a very handy little flashlight if you drop something.  And I didn't have to keep track of a pen and a stylus. The pen glides across the paper. I read other reviews that complained about these falling apart but mine is well made and sturdy. The only issue I have is that the cap for the pen, which is also the stylus part, doesn't attach to the pen so I am afraid of losing it. 

Buy the Minzos 4-In-1 TurboPen for Tablet & SmartPhone Review for yourself and while your at it, buy a few to give as gifts.

3-in-1 Cree LED Flashlight with Magnetized Base Review

Product Description
AYL LED CREE XP-E Car Flashlight; When Safety, Versatility and Security Matter!
Does the idea of carrying a bulky flashlight turn you off?
Or are you concerned about the cost of replacing flashlight batteries on a regular basis?

The truth is that, working with flashlights that produce unsatisfactory light can be frustrating to many people. Others find the usual flashlights quiet rigid hence can't be used in varied situations.
That is not the situation with the revolutionary CREE XP-E LED Car Flashlight!

The CREE XP-E LED Flashlight stands out as a 3-in-1 convenient lighting source; with a design that allows versatility for use in different scenarios.

Why choose the AYL LED Car Flashlight?

- It features a rugged and high quality military-grade design for durability and versatility. It can be used in a variety of applications which include cars, bikes, home, etc.
- The flashlight comes with an anodized aluminium body which is resistant to various elements of weather
- It is powered by 3 AAA batteries (not included)
- It is quite versatile and comes with a total of 29 LEDS (18 white LEDs and 11 red LED)
- It comes in a user-friendly design. It features a magnetic base that can be stuck on any metallic surface
- It comes with 3 light options; Cree, White, and flashing Red LED for improved visibility
- The bulbs can last for more than 100,000 hours
- Easy operation: 1st click turns the CREE LED, 2nd click lights-up the 18 white LED, while 3rd click turns on RED LED

Long time readers may remember back in the summer of  2012, there was a huge wind storm here in WV. We had no power for about 12 days. After that experience I started getting into the prepping world and stocking up on some stuff. I bought a number of solar or battery powered items for other emergencies. Another effect of the storm was for some reason I became obsessed with flashlights. I love them and have tons. No more dark nights for me. I have one in my purse all the time, a couple in my van and at least one in each room of the house. I keep one by my bed. So you know I was excited about doing a flashlight review :). 

I love this flashlight. It is superbright on the first setting Cree, but if you need to light a bigger area the white setting on the side of the flashlight is also very bright. The final setting is the red  flashing on the side and top. This is so perfect if you would break down to use so others could see your car. It is magnetized on one end. It is pretty powerful magnet and did stick to my van. The only thing was it has to be on a flat surface. Naturally you know the first place I tried to use it was slightly curved (I am just special like that lol). This would be very handy if the light under your hood was burned out and you had to check fluids or something. Just stick the magnetic end to the hood and your hands are free to work with. The flashlight isn't at all heavy but it feels very solid. I can see it being effective if you have to strike someone in the head with it.  I think of all the flashlights I have tried this one is my very favorite and I will get a couple more. One for my purse and another for the house.  
Here is a little video I made to show off the flashing red light.

Buy a 3-in-1 Cree LED Flashlight with Magnetized Base of your very own.
