Papa’s World – Heritage Reserve with the grand kids – hiking!

Bode – walking into the Heritage Reserve – Cherry Grove – S.C.

The little guy learned that not hiking is in the mountains like he thought!

Crossing streams or climbing rocks – that is all he had ever done on a hike

Showing him nature – the marsh – water – sand – scrub trees –

He learned that there is more to this Earth – hoping to bring him back

in warm weather as we were told you could see “GATORS” then!

Taylor walking the path through the trees!
Taylor Cassidy Tammy Sherry ( MorMor) making their way into the preserve!

They were excited – walking into the trees on the sand path –

looking for birds – snakes – spiders

hearing the sounds and the marsh views!

Taylor and MorMor – she is only 10 years old – already up above her MorMor shoulders who is 5′ 9″!
Bode – exploring and me reading to him what is here!

Papa’s World – Ever changing life – Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – friendships

Papa – walking from the beach to main street of North Myrtle Beach!

Along the way – we have friends – who after social distancing – come to visit!

And – we walk the gated community – through he gate –

and onto the beach!

The gentle surf of the beach – water and sand!

Our friendships go back years and years.

We all lived by one another – then we all moved away

but that friendship has endured time and distance.

Always from afar – but close when we make plans to get together.

Cindy – Sherry and Dottie
Jim and Buck – Jim and I played softball together in the mid to late ’70’s Buck and Cindy were our neighbors and they also knew Jim and Dottie!

We plan golf – card games and word games!

We drink a little beer – sing a few songs – do a shot – and laugh!

We would set up a get together every 4 to 6 months –

We lived near DC – Jim and Dottie Va. Beach and Cindy and Buck – Wilmington N.C.

Now we have moved further South

about 50 miles from Buck and Cindy.

It is easy for us to get together and golf every weekend.

Jim and Dottie are now the Northerners!

We all have taken up a new game – Pickle Ball!

This last time – we got together at our condo – played two days of golf –

and Pickleball has now become another game we shall play!

We all practice good health – Sherry – who is a certified Health Coach – leads the way!

She has her own website and for 15 years has been the one who encourages all of us!

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com HEALTH AND NUTRITION AT IT’S BEST!

We all come from WNY and SWPA area and are big Buffalo Bills fans!

Distance may separate us – but friendship is but a zoom call away.

Papa’s World – Living our dreams to the plus – one day at a time!

I have been fascinated by the beach – sand – surf and the waves my entire life!

When we were firs married – we went to the beach in the Outer Banks.

Our goal each year was to take the kids to the beach for vacation.

I always dreamed of one day – to somehow work close to the beach –

I would always say ” I am going to sell hot dogs on the beach – just so I could be there”!

Papa and Sherry ( MorMor) Swedish for MothersMother!

Today – everyday where we are –

we are living that dream.

We sold our home back in NVA.

Along with most furniture

and are renting a condo in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach S.C.

And we walk 1/2 mile through the gated community – to the beach!

Cold weather – I was like this – warm walking weather – I am ready to go!

Anything in the Sun – mid 40’s to mid 50’s and no wind – I am for it!

But – snow – wind – ice (slip and fall) I am out of there!

We searched and searched – condo’s – homes – rentals – different areas until we realized – it was equal to just build what we want!

So – we pulled the trigger – after we said to ourselves – we do not want to renovate at our age.

We want to live our remaining lives while we can –

playing golf – exploring and walking the beaches!

When we went back home for Christmas – we had our plans and showed the kids. We were ready to go – waiting for the start date!

We made our selections before Thanksgiving – the paper work was done –

The deposit made – banking finalized –

And when we returned from NVA –

We went to the lot –

THE FORMS WERE IN TO POUR THE FOUNDATION!

Our dream is about to take place.

We have found our shopping stores – and are exploring the area –

Golfing is everywhere and the beach is four miles away!

We are on the mainland and cross the ICW to get to the beach.

Now – we will wait to get a close date-

we have to buy furniture and move from storage what we have left.

Our dream is about to become a reality – walking the beach – warm weather –

Thank you for reading Papa’s World –

our 2020 has been stressful with the Pandemic

our lives are changed and social distancing the norm.

But – our dream continues on –

Papa’s World – living our dream during the Pandemic – a year of blessings!

Our view from the condo in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

This past year we have also had our blessings during the Pandemic!

Yes – we sold our dream home – BUT NOW ARE BUILDING YET ANOTHER ONE!

Yes – we left our family 450 miles to the North – BUT NOW THEY WILL BE VISITING!

Yes – we packed up Sherry’s office – BUT NOW WITH PHONE & COMPUTER –

SHE WALKS THE BEACH AND CONTINUES!

You see what I mean when we have our blessings!

Sherry’s new office!

We went to the new property after coming back from NVA

leaving the snow- ice and cold behind

and saw that they had the forms in ready to pour cement!

Then we walked the beach!

Blessings are where you put down roots!

Work is where you are and where you walk!

That is owning your own network marketing business!

The wind may blow – but there are many fine days at the office!

A year in which we have a pandemic but also a year in which we have blessings!

We explore – we walk – we play golf –

we do not miss the cold – we miss the people!

Papa’s World – In his own words – Jim Martin – how I lost almost 100 lbs.

Jim Martin at 350 lbs.

I first met Jim some years back – his wife Claudia is a close friend of my wife Sherry!

Jim is a very large man – standing 6’5 ” of taller!

He loves to cook and always was making BBQ for his employees!

Claudia was interested in what Sherry was doing for her health.

Then – Jim became interested.

He sent me this email – I had no idea he was writing it.

It is such a story of health and a journey for a individual

who one day said enough is enough!

IN HIS OWN WORDS – JIM MARTIN!

 My name is Jim Martin, and I am 65 years old. I live in Reston, Virginia, I still maintain a full-time job.

Heaviest Weight: 350 pounds

Current Weight: 260 pounds

 I struggled with my weight my entire adult life. It led to binge eating and weight gain. Before trying Juice Plus, I had done yo-yo diets my whole life. My weight has gone up and down 50 to 80 pounds over the years, but nothing ever stuck. 

Before Juice Plus, a typical day consisted of a lack of sleeping of no more that 4 to 5 hours a night and grabbing either a breakfast burrito with an apple juice or a chicken biscuit from a drive thru. I would go to work at my incredibly stressful sales job from 7:30-4:30 and get little to no movement at work. I would always eat out for lunch and pick very unhealthy options—sometimes I would even get dessert (cookies) with lunch!  After work I would come home and eat dinner around 6:30 pm and sit on the couch until it was time for bed. Before bed, I would usually have ice cream or another dessert. Sometimes I would wake up and get a “midnight snack.” I was literally eating around the clock.   

The first time I heard about Juice Plus was almost a year ago. I was not into fitness at the time, but back then I thought Juice Plus would help me lose weight and promote a good immune system. However, after years of putting on weight, I started learning more about it and decided I wanted to give it a try and joined the “Shred Your Way” Facebook group.

My turning point came on January 6, 2020 with the “Shred Your Way” Sugar Shred Challenge, No sugar for 10 days.  As a result of completing this challenge, I have completely removed sugar from my diet for the past 11 months. I have no sugar cravings or desire to eat sweets as I did in the past. This all happened two months prior to the COVID lockdown and I was stress eating like crazy. It was a Monday morning and I stepped on the scale that I had been avoiding for months. After I read it, I just said, “That’s enough.” Something had to change.

My goal when I started this journey was to be in better shape than I was when I was 45. Back then, I was 260 pounds and less than 20% bodyfat. From the start of this journey to get healthy, I told myself that I wanted to be in better shape in the next year than I was in the last. 

I found that adding Fasting, Healthy eating and Walking to my journey

I loved it so much, I added the Fasting (Zero Fast), Food Monitoring (MyFitnessPal) and Walking (Fitbit) apps to help me stay on track. It has been a huge help in my journey. Tracking the fast, steps, and foods It helps me to see trends, and with that I can make adjustments.  I love being able to look back and see how I have done. The Shred Your Way Facebook group has also been a great source of motivation.

I currently follow a 16:8 fasting schedule, walking 8 to 10 miles a day, and eating about 1500 to 1800 calories a day, while trying to keep it flexible. Most days I end up following 17:7 Fasting, 25,000 steps and 1600 calories. I change my fasting times to suit my lifestyle. If I want to go out and have a big dinner with my wife, I will just do a longer fast leading up to it, so I stay in a deficit. And some days when I am hungry, I will break my fast at 13-14 hours (minimum of 13 hours to be considered fasting). I listen to my body and hunger signals. That is what I love about intermittent fasting—it is all about flexibility. 

The first few mornings I started fasting I was so hungry, but honestly by the second week my body had adapted well. That is part of the reason I have been able to do this so long (coming up on 7 months). It is not a struggle for me to follow the plan.

Aside from the weight loss, fasting gives me freedom from food, walking gives me the movement I need and Juice Plus give me a healthy immune system. I no longer feel like food is my source of comfort. I can focus my thoughts and feelings more. I also did change my overall diet. I discovered tons of extremely healthy choices. However, that is another writing exercise.

Here is what I typically eat in a day:

Breakfast: Black coffee, breakfast cereal (Ezekiel or Sola brands, no/exceptionally low sugar) blueberries, raspberries, almond milk, and chia seeds.

Lunch: Arnold whole wheat bread or a Mission brand low carb whole wheat wrap, turkey or ham, mustard, lettuce., tomato and Kettle Brand avocado and Himalaya salt potato chips.

Dinner: Taco Bowl (steak, brown rice, pinto beans, salsa, cheese,) Kevin Brand Chicken entrees with steam veggies.

Snacks: Mixed nuts or, protein shake (1G or less sugar) or apple or protein bar (2G or less sugar)

Dessert: 1oz70% Dark Chocolate

I feel completely different now that I added fasting and walking to my Juice Plus daily routine.  I no longer have a need to eat wasteful and harmful foods like sugar. Before, I would always eat a huge lunch and then be worthless for hours afterwards. Now, I experience the mental clarity that comes from eating the right foods, fasting, and walking. I am tracking all my calories in MyFitnessPal because I wanted to stay in a deficit, which was key for weight loss. I aim to eat 1,800 calories each day. I walk 7 days a week. It has been great.

These three changes contributed the most to my weight loss success.

Change 1: I gave myself more than a year to reach my goal.

By taking a longer-view approach, I do not get discouraged by little missteps. I still have plenty of time to reach my goal. When you set a short timeframe to reach your goal, you can get discouraged if it does not happen “fast” enough.

Change 2: I focused on healthy eating at first.
I’ve done diets before, and when you change everything in the first week, you drain yourself of willpower and end up falling off the wagon.  I just focused on finding healthy food choices that minimize or eliminate SUGAR. SUGAR is the killer of any plan that includes weight loss or a good immune system.

Change 3: I do not get discourage… focus on the big picture

Life happens, and if I get down on myself for being human, that is not going to help me in the future. So instead, I give myself grace and understand this will happen. I acknowledge it and move on instead of making myself feel like a failure.   I could barely walk a mile without resting, now I can complete a 10K in less that two hours. It takes one step at a time.

I hope my successful journey can help other archive the life changing experience this has been for me.   I think the most rewarding part about making this change has been the mental clarity and focus that comes in the last few hours before breaking a fast. I do not feel mentally drained. But the weight loss has made the biggest difference. It is going to allow me to live an active life well into old age. If I had continued putting on weight, I would have been in extremely poor health within the next five years. But now I feel strong, and I do not feel deprived.

The new Jim Martin – at 260 lbs.

As a side note – Claudia Martin has literally folllowed in Jim’s footsteps.

She now walks with him and has lost 55 lbs. !

OUR HOME

Papa’s World – we took a trip South – to see some “COWS”

We visited a resort called
Fearrington
where they have
black belted COWS
and Chickens and Goats!
And a community
of different houses!

We went South to Fuquay-Varina

Just outside Raleigh N.C. where

Sherry’s sister moved about two years ago.

Sherry and Debbie

We have been here once before and decided to take

a quick long weekend trip

One of the things we did was visit Fearrington Farm

a resort that has white belted Cows – Goats and Chickens.

I have no idea HOW they produce the breeds

but they are Black with a white furry belt

In fact all the Cows – Goats are really furry

as are the Chickens ( fluffy feathers)

Belted Goat
Fluffy neck belted chickens

The animals were all inside pens or pastures

and we got to see them up close

It was the first time I had ever heard of them!

Sherry sitting with
what I call
HARVEY
The rabbit
made from strands of Copper wire
Sherry had farm fresh
Tomato soup
and I think Goat toasted cheese
She said it was very good
Debbie had the same
I had the farm fresh salad
squash – shrimp(cooked)
with goat cheese
and it also was very good

They have several places to eat

and a spa and Inn to stay at ( $450.00 / night)

There is shopping and a really neat BOOK STORE !

Just outside where we ate
a quiet place to reflect
and next to outside seating

We walked around the bookstore & hundreds of books

had little review notes attached to them

All the books were colorful colors

and I found myself a little over whelmed

As I was unable to just focus

there were so many!

Mr. Frog
water fountain
Belted goats
Tom & Debbie

I found the place charming

interesting and colorful

I also thought I would like to come back
