Today is 420 a.k.a. National Weed Day, Marijuana Appreciation Day, National Smoke Day and Stoner’s Day. The origins of 420 are a bit cloudy, covered in smoke, hazy if you will.

“You are 70% beautiful, 75% naughty, 80% sweet, 95% true, 100% lovely. In total if you sum up, you are a 420.” ~ Unknown

Urban legend has it that back in 1971, San Rafael High School students used “420” as a code word to meet after school at 4:20 p.m. to light up a doobie and get stoned. A slightly different version says that on 4/20 in 1971, a group of college students lit up joints to protest for the legalization of marijuana.  Either way, if you are a child of the 60’s, a Boomer who remembers the perils of being caught smoking a simple joint, this sea-change, 50 years in the making may spark a few nostalgic thoughts.

“How sad and bad and mad it was – but then, how it was sweet.” ~ Robert Browning

While this holiday is fast becoming one of the more popular here in the states, Marijuana is still, in many states, an illegal substance. Medical Marijuana – used by patients for cancer, AIDS, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis and Lou Gehrig’s disease is legal in Australia, the Netherlands, Belgium, Canada and 14 states; Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington.

Recreational marijuana has been legalized in four states:  Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington.

Medical marijuana has been used in the treatment of the following:

AIDS. Marijuana can reduce the nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite caused by the ailment itself and by various AIDS medications.

Glaucoma. Marijuana can reduce interlobular pressure, thereby alleviating the pain and slowing — and sometimes stopping — the progress of the condition. (Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. It damages vision by increasing eye pressure over time.)

Cancer. Marijuana can stimulate the appetite and alleviate nausea and vomiting, which are common side effects of chemotherapy treatment.

Multiple Sclerosis. Marijuana can limit the muscle pain and spasticity caused by the disease, as well as relieving tremor and unsteadiness of gait. (Multiple sclerosis is the leading cause of neurological disability among young and middle-aged adults in the United States.)

Epilepsy. Marijuana can prevent epileptic seizures in some patients.

Chronic Pain. Marijuana can alleviate the chronic, often debilitating pain caused by myriad disorders and injuries.  and more….

420 demonstrations and celebrations are planned throughout the day across the country. Will you participate, demonstrate?

Cry It Out–and then …contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Author, Artist, Positarian

Just the other night, a few friends were hanging out over “here” (as in my house).  One word led to the next, as words do, and for the life of me I can’t remember how the conversation turned to tears, but it did.   Tears help us see, remove toxins, kill bacteria, alleviate stress, release feeling and elevate mood.  The next time you feel like crying, Tushkateers (members of Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Kick in the Tush Club), let loose!

Here, 8 Quotes Guaranteed to Bring a Tear to the Eye!   Enjoy!!!

Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts. I was better after I had cried, than before–more sorry, more aware of my own ingratitude, more gentle. ~ Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears. ~ Edgar Allen Poe

When a stargirl cries, she sheds not tears but light. ~ Jerry Spinelli, Stargirl

When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them. ~ Lemony Snicket

Coach Yourself Thinnish: Is Your Solar Plexus Singing the Fat Blues?

Ready to End the Battle? ~ contact Janice Taylor, Life Coach, Weight Loss Success Coach, Author, Artist, Positarian

Ready to End the Battle? ~ contact Janice Taylor, Life Coach, Weight Loss Success Coach, Author, Artist, Positarian

Is your solar plexus making you fat?   The celiac plexus, also known as the solar plexus, is a complex network of nerves (a plexus) located in the abdomen, where the celiac trunk, superior mesenteric artery, and renal arteries branch from the abdominal aorta. It is in back of the stomach and the omental bursa, and in front of the crura of the diaphragm, on the level of the first lumbar vertebra, L1. (source: Wikipedia)  (Wow–that was a mouthful!)

According to Hindu texts, the Solar Plexus is the seat of your third Chakra. This Chakra is situated just below the sternum (where your ribs attach in the front)You can imagine it to be a beacon of light, which radiates from the center of your body.  Its energy jet propels you to move forward, toward fulfilling your dreams and goals.

And you can further imagine that the Solar Plexus Chakra is where one can find and cultivate energy that can enable you to turn DESIRE into ACTION!!! It is home to our Want Power muscle (previously known as Will Power muscle).

WANT – WILL – ACTION:  What we WANT fuels our WILL and it, in turn, provides a spark of energy that ignites us into ACTION.

The Solar Plexus is the crucial point in our bodies where our ‘parts’ – often opposing parts – have an opportunity to meet and join forces.

An example:  Part of me wants to be as healthy as humanly possible and say ‘no, thank you’ to foods that are processed, overloaded with saturated fats, salt and sugar, BUT the other part of me simply wants the fried chicken and the cake with extra frosting – now!”

Now, let’s add philosopher Ken Wilbur’s words into the mix, “No one is smart enough to be 100% wrong.” When I heard these words, I thought, “what a wonderful concept to bring to my battling self.”

These words can shed light on your inner battle, as they help us to understand that our desire to eat cake is not 100% wrong, nor is our desire to eat healthfully 100% right.  As neither side is wrong nor right, then there is an opportunity for understanding, for loving-kindness and inner-peace.

When we scan our bodies from top to bottom, moving down from our foreheads to our toes, let’s remember to pause at the Solar Plexus with an open heart and allow both ‘parts’ to say what they need to say so that the battle can end.

Make peace with your parts.
Sometimes it’s just that simple!

Kick in the Tush Tuesday: #Stop-Stopping

Ready to #stop-STOPPING?  ~  contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Ready to #stop-STOPPING? ~ contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

How do you fail? How do you fail at losing weight a.k.a. permanent fat removal or—for that matter—any other goal?  The simple answer is that you stop.

Advertisement

You stop.
You give up.
You stop.
You lose momentum.
You stop.

You may tell yourself that you are taking a break, and that you are going to get back to it tomorrow, but that’s more than likely a lie. You stop!

One day morphs into the next and before you know it you’ve taken a 10-year detour.   The longer the “break” the more you’ll have to battle your way back to where you once were when you stopped!

Instead of Stopping, why not Fully Commit to yourself.

Even if you are terrified to lose weight, afraid to let the buried you out; even if you fall on your tush again and again, I guarantee you that it [your tush] won’t break.

Stop Stopping!
Sometimes it’s just that simple!
