Papa’s World – health – living laughter – evolving

MY LIFE

Living life – one day at a time –

and doing it my way ( well – her way also )

Welcome to PAPA’S World !

GOOD MORNING

This is part of my story – for it has many chapters.

I have been writing – on face book –

daily – since 2011 – EIGHT YEARS !

Sherry -my wife – said –

you write so well – but I am afraid it will get lost !

YOU HAVE TO START BLOGGING –

so we can have a place to go where we can read it !

Now – I had blogged a number of years ago and had a site –

actually two sites !

But my computer crashed

and I lost all the info –

Then a couple months ago –

with the help of a friend

Belinda Vallarino Cermola

She helped set me back up again –

and by accident –

we stumbled on my second blog site that I had lost !

Here it was –

and finding it was like looking up phone numbers –

as someone who can not see with out glasses !

But – we found it while setting up my new blog site –

livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

My criteria –

Make someone smile –

Make someone happy-

No politics –

Bring light to those who are in the dark –

And help people become as healthy as possible –

I had found only FIVE blogs on that site –

The other site is still out there someplace

with hundreds of blogs –

It was all on my computer –

and I could not remember the name or password –

Someday – I hope I can once again find it –

to recapture all those stories.

Today – I am blogging one day at a time –

I really have no idea each day what I will write about –

It just happens with a picture –

a thought – a quote –

or something that I experienced recently or during my life.

I started

and changed my format –

today – I follow my criteria –

I have now been blogging daily for the past 7 plus weeks !

In that short expanse of time –

I have been fortunate to have 55 people who have subscribed to my blog !

Most I do not know

and they are from all over the World !

This has given me the hope and confidence to continue –

Hoping to bring a change –

a good vibe –

My way to help in health –

I am evolving –

I am living my life –

doing it my way – one day at a time !

And a big hug to my best friend –

the person who encouraged me to write –

MY WIFE SHERRY !

and to Belinda – who helped me to restart –

And to all of you who read my thoughts and have joined –

It does not cost anything – you get a email every time I post !

THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART

Papa’s World – Why I take JUICE PLUS & OMEGA’S

It has now been over 13 years since I started !

GOOD MORNING

My journey began with

” NO – I DON’T NEED IT ” !

Actually I DID NEED IT –

but I did not know what I DIDN’T KNOW!

1982

We were married on June 25 th. 1982 –

both of us ate terrible –

Smoked – drank Soda’s –

And thought we were invincible !

Little did we know

and when the time came for a change –

I KNEW LAST !

HOW WELL I KNEW THIS

Sherry came to me and said we are making a change –

well – she was !

It took me 3 1/2 months to see it to believe it !

That is when I started taking a supplement

( whole food ) capsules !

Fruits – Veggies – Berries –

that are JUICED – Slowly dried – into a powder –

And come packaged in

RED ( fruits) known as ORCHARD BLEND –

GREEN ( veggies ) known as GARDEN BLEND

PURPLE ( berries) known as VINEYARD

And the research shows as soon as they dissolve in your stomach –

THEY GO IMMEDIATELY INTO YOUR BLOOD STREAM !

THE POWER OF WHOLE FOOD

Everything is juiced including

the peels – rind – cores !

You get ALL THE NUTRIENTS !

THE CAPSULES INCLUDING THE ORANGE OMEGA’S and a smoothie

For me to be convinced

I had to SEE and READ –

NO PESTICIDES

That is just who I am.

NOW THERE ARE 36 RESEARCHES COMPLETED –

By MAJOR UNIVERSITIES & MEDICAL CENTERS & HOSPITALS

all over the WORLD !

JUICE PLUS

BRIDGE’S THE GAP BETWEEN RECOMMENDED & ACTUAL INTAKE

THIS IS HAPPENING

DOING SOMETHING –

not just thinking about it !

I have no regrets –

I will take this as long as I live.

I TAKE OMEGA’S FOR MY BRAIN

A year ago – I started taking another product from Juice Plus –

Called OMEGA BLEND –

made not from Fish oil –

But from Algae –

which is where the fish get it from –

Thus – no worries from MERCURY !

The company also have their own Algae Farms !

I guess we all have experienced this

When you reach your AUTUMN YEARS –

you try as hard as can to sustain a lifestyle that you have led.

You watch stairs –

you climb back up off the floor

Or gingerly kneel down on one knee –

You know when to play a game of kick ball or just pitch !

NO I CAN’T

You count MICRO SECONDS

to reach the bathroom !

BUT YOU MAKE CHANGES AHEAD OF TIME –

If you want to LIVE –

If you want to MAINTAIN that lifestyle –

Then you owe it to yourself to prepare –

to research –

To read and see what this is !

Are YOU worth $3.43 a day

for FRUITS- VEGGIES – BERRIES & OMEGA’S ?

IS YOUR HEALTH a matter of dollars and cents ?

WE ARE IN THE AUTUMN

This is my story –

my reason –

my wanting to maintain –

Enjoy life – watch my grand kids grow up –

Have a life partner who is my best friend.

Best thing I ever did was start 13 years ago –

Worse thing of my life –

” NO ONE SHOWED ME 25 YEARS AGO ” !

TOM & SHERRY living life to the PLUS

Thank you for reading

I hope this HELPS someone out there

We have been changing lives for 12 years now

And children –

well – we help them for FREE

Papa’s World – Grand daughters – each selected as MVP for their teams.

Sisters – three years apart – one graduated this week –

Going on to play Soccer at University Of Lynchburg , Va.

The other – returning as a Junior – and made the Travel Team –

BOTH SELECTED AS MVP of THEIR TEAMS –

At the same position – MIDFIELDER – by their coaches!

MADDY MEYERS & ELLA MEYERS

Maddy will continue her play in college –

But the other story here is of Ella –

last TWO YEARS –

She suffered a broken bone in her foot

( one of her teammates came down on it )

And then – after almost six months ( growth plate was fractured )

She came down on it wrong and suffered a hair line fracture to her arch.

Maddy and Ella

They have been close –

very close – all through the years !

I remember the time that Maddy got a new bed –

Ella came to me –

And just like you see her smile here in this picture –

She looked at me and said

” I’VE GOT MADDY’S BED ” !

She was so proud to have her sisters white whicker single bed !

My own thoughts have been sort of a

WHAT IF –

Had she not broken those bones in her foot –

she lost two years of playing.

And in her first year back –

she was selected as MVP

and made the Travel Team!

Her confidence is back –

they both play the same position –

Ella is growing –

she now is a little taller than Maddy –

Has a very good skill set –

And now will play on –

She once again believes

after watching from the side lines.

They both hold their MVP plaques

Graduation Party was Saturday –

guests – players – relatives.

The training has begun –

running hills – sprints –

and Ella has joined in.

It will be a fun Fall

as both will start playing again.

Once again – both will pursue their dreams –

Maddy in college – Ella for two more years in high school.

Sherry – very proud grandma
Signing letter of Intent

Papa’s World – keeping the mind sharp – remembering

Every day – I try to remember whatever I can about the past !

Some days – you are on top – others – well – you forget

Keeping up with memory – both short term and long term – requires concentration – at least that is my way.

I have little tricks I use to remember – like my keys – I try to always put them in one place when I am not using them – and when I go someplace – they always going my left hand pants pocket.

If they are not there – then I am in trouble – because in my mind I have to back track from the last time I remember having them.

I think food has a lot to do with it !

I think what food we eat – has a lot to do with memory – just how I feel.

Everyday – for my memory I take OMEGA’S 3 – 6 -7- 9 -made from algae. I really do not like the taste or after taste of fish oil – and I am not keen on fish and mercury.

Developing habits – I find helps me tremendously – find a routine and stick with it – when you vary – is when you forget – at least for me !

Find a nutrition supplement

When you deal with your mind – find a nutrition supplement – read the research – whole food is important – processed food is not – drink whole food when you can – plant based is what I eat and drink.

I hope this helps – short term and long term memory – keeping it for as long as you can.

Oh – I also read – I absorb interesting things – just little tidbits – you would be surprised when you answer what no one else remember – simply because you found it interesting somewhere along the way !

Papa’s World – retired – being healthy – a day in my life

What I do in a day of my life

I worked 47 1/2 years for the same company – prior to that – I started working when I was going into my Junior year of H.S.

I decided when I retired – almost 50 years of working – was enough !

Me – Sherry – Steve- Elaine – Cindy & Buck

It was important to maintain our friendships – stay in touch – here are four of our closest friends.

Buck and I – NWPA – golfing vacation

It was important for me to stay active and play golf.

Our six grand children – 5 grand daughters and then Bode .

Family is very important to me , when we moved to NVA – Sherry’s daughters followed us there . My two sons stayed in NWPA – we see them when we visit. In the 20 years – the Va.family has grown – and being there – we see them often if not daily. My family I grew up with is almost gone – I have a niece – great niece’s – brother’s daughter – great – great niece and 2 great – great nephews – everyone else including uncles -aunts are gone.

We have a little side business – actually it provides the income to stay where we are.

We live in a very expensive part of the country – in fact – this county has the highest income per household in the country. We moved here 20 years ago for work and then Sherry retired almost 7 years ago – and went full time into that business of health and nutrition. I followed one year later – and – it has been the income that has provided us the time to stay where we are.

North Shore – Oahu

We travel – we play golf – we see the country – but we also maintain a healthy lifestyle – eating right – and continue to inspire people to do the same – all the while being paid to do it !

You have to remember – retirement means Social Security – if you have a pension plan – 401 K – and whatever else you have saved. PLAN ” B ” – if you want to maintain – you have to have a plan. Ours – we planned 13 years ago and have stayed the course.

The three amigo’s for over 38 years.

Family life – friends – and maintaining health are important for us. All three – with church and God – are our mainstays of life. Giving – helping – praying and attending church – go hand in hand with our life. But – having fun – seeing friends – and watching the family grow – is to me what retirement is all about.

Cindy and Sherry

My wife is extraordinary – a natural born leader – a certified health coach – along as being a true friend to many. She is my crutch – the one I follow on health and nutrition and the reason I am still alive today.

A typical dinner meal for me

Eating healthy – sticking to the plan – and taking my nutrition supplement – and following what she says and does are my secrets to life.

The TOWER GARDEN – we grow inside and outside – year round.

We grow our own produce – April through October outside with two Tower Gardens – anything that does not grow on a tree! And then as you see above – we grow inside our garage November through March. Always fresh and no pesticides – we know what we are eating and growing.

Team Generations

Our team has grown over the years – conference time is twice a year – all over the Country – as is the team – simply sharing by word of mouth. Families – children – helping each other – maintain that healthy life style.

Sherry -Debby ( QMND – soon to be NMD )

In October we will travel to Austin Texas – where we are planning to watch our daughter Debby be promoted to National Marketing Director for the Juice Plus Company – when she will make a full time income she could not of made in the Corporate World ! With extremely generous benefits – and help for college tuition for all three of her children.

Our goal of maintaining our lifestyle in retirement with a PLAN ” B” has been met and continues – growing year by year.

We would love to share it with you – it is not easy – life isn’t easy either – but you make it what you want it to be.

It is up to you – we supply the help – the guidance – we are there.

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com is where you contact Sherry – and look at all the different video’s – both on the health and business.

I am writing this blog today – my only regret is that SOMEONE out there did not share it with us 25 years ago – I wish they had – but we found it 13 years ago and our own PLAN” B” has worked.

Thank you for reading – and remember #livinglifetotheplus is real –

Papa’s World – retirement – loving life to the plus doing it my way.

Papa’s World – Living life to the plus – one day at a time

In 2005 – we started our journey – ” LIVING LIFE TO THE PLUS ” !

It was my wife Sherry who first started and and after 3 1/2 months – I finally got it through my thick Irish head that “HEY” something is happening!

Little things – but first where did this all take place ? Well – she said to me – there is a Health Expo at the D.C. Capital One center – and is sponsored by the network NBC for your health . Well – I was game – and into Washington D.C. we went !

Now – with over thousand of vendors – my aim was to go to the stage and concessions – eat and watch the entertainment – and meet up later. Which is exactly what I did. She in turn – found a Healthy eating booth – and bought the product – Fruits – Vegetables and berries in a capsule !

Since she hated vegetables ( since then she has developed a craving for them ) it was a easy fix for what she was not eating ! However – as I was eating my second cheeseburger ( yes – I was that bad ) she asked me if I wanted to try this out ? NOPE – I was fine – I went to have my checkup every six months – I was on MEDS and had no desire !

Long story short – I STARTED TO NOTICE LITTLE THINGS – like her hair was more shiny – her fingernails were growing faster – she was able to read at night in bed without her glasses – and she started eating vegetables ! That was something she hated !

So – I asked her – why are you doing this and what made you try it ? She replied – I needed to make a change and it was there – it clicked plus they had the RESEARCH proving what it did ! ( today there are 36 published papers) Then she said – ” YOU CAN DO THIS WITH ME – OR I WILL DO IT WITHOUT YOU – BUT I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE ” !

That was the day we both started living ” LIFE TO THE PLUS ” ! Almost 14 years now – and – because I was a terrible fast food junkie for 35 years – I paid the price – I had done the damage before I started my new eating lifestyle. In 2013 – I had the WIDOW MAKERS heart attack !

One blockage of 100 % – one at 90 % – one at 79 % and one at 60 % !

All those years – eating bad – BUT – had I not changed – I would not be here- the doctors told me just that – I was the most healthy heart attack person they had ever seen. I had FOUR BY PASSES – and within 52 hours – I was home standing in my living room being nicknamed ” THE RABBIT ” for how fast I recovered by the hospital staff !

Now one of the researches done by the University of Maryland – was on the Berries and how when combined with the fruits and vegetables – helped to keep the arteries open after a high fat meal !

I honestly believe that it was that one thing that kept me alive! I will always believe that – and that is why today we are LOVING LIFE TO THE PLUS !

JUICE PLUS was and is my savior – I believe that – it is my life and my belief. I will continue to take it – and almost 14 years later – I have my wife to thank for it . For without her telling me – ” I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE TOGETHER” and ” I WANT YOU WITH ME ” well – I am still here – this is just a part of my story of living out my dreams.

Thank you all for reading – “PAPA’S WORLD ” is alive – God Bless ! HGD

BELIEF

I went yesterday –

July 2 nd. to the Loudoun Hospital –

I had the two weeks prior .

The first test –

EVERYTHING WAS CLEAR –

My overall cholesterol 111 !

The STRESS TEST –

And the results of this one –

MIRRORED THE FIRST –

Sherry has guided me through all of this –

AND I LISTEN TO HER !

WALKING INTO HEALTH

You see –

Also classes through Dr. Pam Popper.

standing in my living room –

52 hours after the start of the surgery.

And it was because of her.
