2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here's an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 430 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.

Oil Pulling Challenge

I am learning about oil pulling. I am giving myself a challenge to do this for 10 straight days. This will be from December 18-December 28, 2014.

We will see what happens! ! ! !

Lovely snow day today! lr6u43ty

Day 1: oil pulling. I put a couple tsp. coconut oil in my mouth and swished for about 5 minutes. Teeth feel clean. I spit it out in the trash can lined with plastic bag like they said too. I brushed and flossed afterwards. Hoping to work up to 15-20 minutes.

Day 2 Dec. 19: oil pulling. This morning I swished about 1 1/2 tsp. coconut oil for about 16 minutes. Again, my mouth feels clean!

Day 3 Dec. 20, Day 4, Dec. 21, Day 5, Dec. 22, Day 6, Dec. 23 Day 7 Dec. 24 Day 8 Dec. 25 – All these days I swished and jumped on nice little rebounder. The blood takes 20 minutes to circulate throughout the body once, so that is why it is recommended to swish the oil for that long. I think with jumping the blood moves faster through the body; On these days I jumped and swished anywhere from 10-20 minutes. I’m getting the hang of it.

answers for lipoma

I have this lipoma on my shoulder; this article says the reason for them, which is toxins get wrapped in fatty tissue to protect the body from them – interesting ! I am already taking these vitamins so will continue πŸ™‚

Here it says to take 2 Tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before bed and they will diminish – this I will try.
