Blog Action Day 2009 : Climate Change

Today is Blog Action Day. It happens every year on Oct. 15, it’s an event that unites bloggers worldwide, to spread the word about a particular issue. This year’s it’s about Climate Change.

Climate Change is part of Global Warming and it’s defiantly effecting our environment. They are many ways you can do your part and help change our environment. Just some of them are:

  • Carpool
  • Recycle
  • Telecommute
  • Bike or Walk to work
  • Use Green Products
  • Use CFLs
  • Use Energy Star products
  • buy a fuel-efficient car
  • know your carbon foot print & try to reduce it
  • eat more organic & local grown veggies & fruits

The list goes on what you can do to help with the environment, I do everything I can like recycling, telecommuting, composting, saving rain water to use to water the plants, use cfls, have a fuel-efficient car, eat only organic & locally grown veggies, using, Energy Star products, shutdown my computer or other appliances when they are not in use,  keeping the heat  turn down or not using heating/AC at all. (don’t mind wearing a hoodie  around the house  or keeping the windows open in the spring,  fall or winter). etc.

You don’t have to do everything I do or mentioned here, but if everyone just did a little something like using CFL light bulbs, carpool or even recycle, it would help out in a big way.

Happy & Healthy Living!

As most know I’ve been trying to adapt to healthier a lifestyle to becoming a vegetarian. It’s been a year in the making, but I’m still continuing to reach my goals.  I’ve had a lot of ups and downs  from having surgery last year to losing focus,  but I’ve manged to get back on track and it’s paying off. Since starting back in early 2008 I’ve managed to eat mostly only organic foods and give up processed foods, trans fats foods, caffeine, salt, and any food or drinks with artificial sweeteners.

Since June  I’ve been solely relaying on vegetables, soy products, beans, grains, etc. as a source of protein, fiber, and nutrients. From that I feel great and plus have tons more energy than I did before.  I’m still trying to get more active  by doing yoga, running/walking/hiking to mountain  biking as well. Don’t get to do those things a lot, but  I’m working toward  trying to do more.

It’s been a journey, but one in the end will make me feel better, hopefully live longer and reduce my chances of getting any serious medical conditions that I could face as I get older, since  I have a lot that run in my family.

Crazy Busy!

Wow, it seems like I’ve been working non-stop these days and pulling all niters too. I have had a lot of projects coming in and that’s a good thing too.

I really enjoy my  work and getting to work with different types of clients too. I have one big project I’m hoping will come  my way. Would love the opportunity to work with this one group. I really enjoy giving back to the community.  I always feel privileged when I get to work with a group that is doing amazing things for the community or supporting a cause I really care about.

Other than work I have had a lot going on in my life too.  Like  finally getting another car, since my truck was totaled from the wreck. Since getting the car, it’s been a joy to be able to get out and about again.  Other than the car, I have had a lot of good things happening in my life, which is wonderful.  I’ve started back doing Yoga regularly, which is something I loved, but got out of doing it because with everything that happened. I’m still trying to get and about to ride my bike, hike, and walk every chance I get too. I’m also still  eating an all vegetarian diet, which has been a year and half now.  I have to say that I’m really sticking to my goals and it’s really paying off too.

I’m truly blessed to have all the great and  positive things that are happening in my life right now, after all the negative  things that has happened in the past two years. Plus I’m so grateful for great  friends that have become my extended family. It’s just truly amazing…..
