Ovarian cysts are sacs of fluid developed on a woman’s reproductive organs. Some cysts are not harmful and some are, they can threaten your health and you may not show any symptoms. Getting regular pelvic exams is important to treating and preventing them. Cysts are quite common in woman especially during menstruation, and may vary on what type of cyst you might get. During a woman menstruation it is common for her to develop a small, fluid or egg filled cysts in and around the ovaries.

Detoxify Your Mind

We detoxify our bodies, but have you ever thought about detoxifying your mind? You see if your mind is clutter with negative thoughts, you have no time to be truly happy. True happiness gives you a better life and power to overcome anything that comes your way.

Never live your life base on what others say or do. Even though sometimes it might be hard to. Your are living for you and God, he is the only one you need to worry about. Detoxify your mind and replace them with good thoughts and watch how things change for you. All that negativity and worrying will eat your body and mind up. Do something good for yourself, you deserve it. If you can't love yourself how are you going to love someone else.

It takes more energy focusing on the bad instead of the good. Cleanse your body from all of the sickness. Give your soul peace, times are hard and it can get in the way of you trying to balance your life.

Doughnut or Toast

As I was sipping on my cup of coffee this morning, my stomach was bugging for something to eat. I said leave me alone later ok!. Grrrrr! Wow you are a fighter aren't you? There's a war going on in there and it needs it firearm. I said ok a few more minutes and I'll give you your fuel. I need to do this work and I'll take care of you as soon as I can, I'm pressed for time. Working trying to get things done and grrrr! It still puts up a fight no matter what! Hunger don't play.

Trying to finish up this last little job and then I'll take a break, but my hunger wasn't having it, grrrr. Finally I gave in and was stuck between a doughnut and toast. I had a doughnut yesterday my conscious said, I said this is between me and my stomach. Shut up! So stomach what should we have today? Don't have a real meal in front of me. Conscious jump in and said "toast" Completely ignoring that. Doughnut is what stomach wants and Doughnut is what it is going to get.

As I reached in to grab my delicious soft and moist cinnamon breakfast, all of a sudden I turn to the fridge and grab two slices of bread toasted it. It's no doughnut but I'd rather eat right then to eat with guilt. I said good job conscious, even though I wanted that doughnut sooo bad, my mind was telling me no and I listened to it no matter what I was craving.

Smart choices can be hard to make when it comes to food. If you have the willpower then making those choices will be just as easy as eating the wrong foods. When I ate my toast I felt so good and was proud of myself. My body was happy too!

When u make the right choices most of the time, then you get to enjoy the foods you love sometimes

Poem: Never Give Up

Life is not easy, with all the chaos and drama we stand through it all. We are not afraid to stand tall. Through the tears, fears and heartaches we Never Give Up! We fight for our rights, for our independence and never lose hope. Respect demanded with every breath, working hard to support our families instilling good morals and wisdom.

Never Give Up!, Never Give up

Just when you think you've fought your last battle, there comes the war and with a doubt you'll be ready for more. You cannot break me, didn't you know? I have powers. Powers of wisdom, Power of Love, Power of Faith, Power Of Hope, and the Power to kick ass! No matter what you do to me my mind won't give in I'm always going to win.

Never Give Up! Never Give Up!

I have a life to live and kids to love and from the Heavens above I'm going live life to the fullest.

Sometimes u get off guard and let the negativity get to you. Look in the mirror. What do you see? A person that's strong, a person that deserves every fine thing that life has to offer and there's nothing more finer than having the power of love. Tell all the haters that you are a motivator and you don't bow down to all the filth that comes out of their mouths.

Never Give Up!

We are all the same, we are all one the only difference between you and me is that I see the light, I'm happy and I'm filled with bursts of energy, energy to spread the positivity into this world. Why u hate on me and Why you turn your nose up at me? I don't know. Maybe you see something in me you wish you had, greatness or beauty or how about both? I must say I am a fly and unique individual. whether it is life giving you a kick in the gut, a deceitful friend, co-worker, family and boyfriend.

You just say I Never Give Up! I Never Give Up! Hit me with your hardest and I will stand strong. Why? Because I am A Survivor!

Beautiful Day

Awoke this morning and did my little workout. I'm trying to get my stomach back in shape and the rest of me lol! I love working out, it makes me feel good about myself as long as it is not boring. Today my family and I set out inside the garage and barbecued some burgers and hot dogs. We had so much fun, my hubby and I were sipping on our favorite drink loving the lovely weather.

Enjoying the burst of sun, hearing the laughter of little ones. It was a beautiful day. Mellow breeze and the right amount of warmth, it couldn't get no better. I love days like this, it just makes you realize how much Family means to you. I'm happy when I'm with my family.

Laughter and Love is the best Medicine. Enjoy life and cherish what u have.

Would You Cheat If You Knew You Wouldn't Get Caught?

Infidelity is the main cause of a relationship to fall apart, but if you love this person and knew that if you wouldn't get caught. Would you risk fulfilling your desires of being with someone else?

When ask this question on the Mike and Juliet show 50% of Men said yes and 50% of Women said yes as well. I'm not going to lie, there were times in my relationship that things were so bad that, I had plenty of opportunities to cheat, but I didn't.

Do think that cheating can be a reaction of being mistreated or people do it because they were weak and couldn't fight their temptations? I would like to know your opinions on this, I'm writing an article about it and would appreciate any feedback.

Why do you think people cheat, and if you have cheated why? Was it worth it, Did it make your relationship stronger or tore it apart? Do you think it is possible to be in a relationship without infidelity? Remember you don't have to be intimated to cheat, a kiss is cheating as well.

Spicing Up The Bedroom: Sexuality

Hey! everyone loves sex, you can get it from anywhere. Lovers, friends, one night stands and even from your bestfriend's man LOL! just kidding, it's true though. Paying for it, I don't know I think it's pathetic if you pay for sex. Sure prostitution is a million dollar industry and it's the oldest profession, I still think it's pathetic. To each it's own. I think sex should never get boring, it's too much of a great feeling for it to be boring. Keeping the fire going in the bedroom is very important. Keep your lover happy, you don't want them to go astray.

Try a few of these tips to keep that fire going or to get it started in the bedroom, or on the counter tops, living room, car or where ever you like to have it.

Try some new exotic lingerie. There's nothing more sexier then wearing some hot lingerie with your boobs showing or butt hanging out.

Sexy Costumes, role play is fun and exciting. Pretending you are a cop or a hot nurse is sure to set a spark.

Foreplay, take the time to caress and get to know the body. Touch is a very powerful way of showing emotions.

Eatable underwear
that feeling of having your lover biting off your underwear will just make u want to jump out of your skin!

Sex toys are fun and can be an pleasant experience. You'd be surprise how many couples use them.

Porn movies, some think it is tacky, but porn movies can get the mood going and you might learn some different positions that you are willing to try.

That's all I have for now and I hope these can be of some help to you. Sexuality is a beautiful thing when shared only between to people that love and care for one another. Make it fun and adventurous, it'll make you feel good and have more confidence in the bedroom.

How Does The Liver Work? The Biggest Organ In Your Body

The liver is the largest organ inside the body. In an adult, it is about the size of a football
and weighs close to three pounds. It is located behind the ribs in the upper right-hand
portion of the abdomen. Shaped like a triangle, the liver is dark reddish-brown and
consists of two main lobes. There are over 300 billion specialized cells in the liver that
are connected by a well organized system of bile ducts and blood vessels called the
biliary system.

How important is my liver?

The liver is such an important organ that we can survive only one or two days if it shuts down—if the liver
fails, your body will fail, too. Fortunately, the liver can function even when up to 75% of it is diseased or
removed. This is because it has the amazing ability to create new liver tissue (i.e. it can regenerate itself)
from healthy liver cells that still exist.

What does my liver do?
If your body was an automobile, your liver would be considered the
engine. It does hundreds of vital things to make sure everything runs

Some of the most important functions of the liver include:

- Stores vitamins, sugar and iron to help give your body energy.

- Controls the production and removal of cholesterol.

- Clears your blood of waste products, drugs, and other poisonous

- Makes clotting factors to stop excessive bleeding after cuts or

- Produces immune factors and removes bacteria from the bloodstream
to combat infection.

- Releases a substance called “bile” to help digest food and absorb important nutrients.

How to Keep Your Liver Healthy

For centuries, homeopathic practitioners have relied on natural, plant-based ingredients to help detoxify the body and promote healthy body functions. Our LiverActive Liver Detox formula contains several natural ingredients to help maintain a healthy liver. It's easy…just spritz under the tongue up to 3 times a day—no pills to swallow—and no complicated formulas to mix. Just healthy, natural support that your liver will thank you for!

Hangover Cures

Hello to my dear followers. Hope you are having a good day.

Love drinking, but when you wake up and realized how much you've dranked. You are like Oh My God! why did I do that. Having a hangover is no pretty picture, thank god it only last a day and that's too long already. Here are some cures that might ease that nasty side effect of over drinking.

CLTV news says that eating a bacon sandwich can help with a hangover. Because of the amino acids, fat and water in the bacon it boost your metabolism and makes you feel better. Never thought bacon would be a cure.

A cup of brandy with peppermint. I know you already have alcohol poisoning, you don't want anymore liquor. But they say this can ease the headaches and make you feel better.

Rubbing lemon under your drinking arm. Don't ask me I'm just passing the information.

A cup of onion soup. Soup is one of the cures for the common cold, it's easy to eat and of course it has nutritional value to it. It's even more easier to eat when you have that nauseated feeling in your stomach.

That's all I have for now. I'll keep you alcoholics posted. Just kidding!

Body Of 8 Year Old Girl Found: Crime

Every time you turn to the news there is always something about death on it. It just breaks you heart when you hear of a innocent child being in the hands of a sicko and being murdered. When I see awful news, the only thing that goes through my mind is the the terror and fear that went through that little girls head. I can't imagine how scared she was, it is so sad. I give my heart out to the family and pray that these innocent babies stay safe. You can only do so much you know? Just try to keep your kids safe, because this world is not safe anymore. There is terror and phycos around every corner and the bad thing is, you don't even know who they are. I'm going to pray for this family, we all should.

Stomach Crunches: Getting Fit

Hi, to all of my dear followers. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Well, it's been awhile since I've done some stomach crunches. Lately the only crunch I know is eating on a chip. I'm a health fanatic in a way, I still eat what I want. I just watch how much and change the ingredients a bit to fewer calories and fat.

I think it's time for me to start doing more you know? My birthday is next month and I want to look good, not saying I don't look good now. I just want to look better. I want to be not only that hot chic, but hot momma as well. You feel me? I'm so glad that I don't have much to tone up, though. So it's not going to be as hard.

I've started off with 50 sit-ups a day and work my way up after a week to about 80 and work it up from there. If you want to look good, then you have to put some work into it. It's not easy, but it is well worth it. Making healthy changes makes you feel good about yourself. Appreciate your body, nourish it give it what it needs.

My stomach crunches is my way to a better me. What's you challenge to approving yourself? I'll post before and after pics once I've toned up.

Skipping Breakfast Can Lower Your Child's IQ

Your kids might have low IQ's because the lack of eating their breakfast. A study was done at Ohio State University. Breakfast is like fuel for your body, it jumps starts your metabolism and it also controls your weight.

calcium is very important. Make sure they get daily intake of that.

Fiber is very important as well. Whole gains and fiber slows down the digestion. Many people don't know this but fiber and whole grains are fruit. Make sure your child at least get 1200 milligrams of calcium a day. Combining fiber and protein keep will keep them full longer. Make sure it's lean protein.

Breakfast carnations is a good drink to take for breakfast. Carnation instant breakfast has Loads of nutrition.

Also turkey bacon has protein in it as well. We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and yet we tend to skip it anyway. I had no idea that skipping lowers your IQ. You learn something new everyday. I'm going to make sure I eat something for breakfast even if it is just toast.

We certainly want the best for our children and making sure they are prepared nutritiously for the day makes them feel better and function properly. Even if you might not have time to eat breakfast, try buying some of those Nutri-Grain bars or breakfast cookies because we as parents need to take time out and take care of ourselves.

Excepting Yourself For Who You Are; Love Your Body!

With all of the weight loss programs on the Tv it's hard for us to except our bodies. When you see a commercial like that, it makes you feel like something is wrong with you all because you are not a size 6. If anyone does not know it by now, the world is full of variety.

Acceptance is not earned from others, but it is earned from you excepting the uniqueness that you have about yourself. If I decide to change, it will not be for anyone else, it will be for just me, for my satisfaction. I'm not talking about skinny people, because thick beautiful women tend to fall prey to the harsh criticism.

Loving yourself means excepting your flaws. Why should your weight be a flaw? Society's way of how we should look sucks! Fuck them, it's our body, our mind and they don't have to live with it. They criticize a person more for their weight worse then someone who is struggling with anorexia or bulimia. If you gained some weight it is plastered all over the magazines and news as if we have broken a law.

Love yourself, believe in yourself. Being overweight shouldn't mean you should be treated as an outsider and who says you are overweight anyway. That is just how you are made and there is nothing wrong with that. You have haters out there, they are just mad because they can't get and have beautiful voluptuous curves. If they did they wouldn't know how to flaunt it any damn way!


I have curves that no one can compare, I'm fine with my long black beautiful hair. I come in many colors, shapes and forms. I get my sexiness from my mother. I am apart of her and I am proud to be her creation. Who are you to tell me what I should look like, least I'm proud of what I am, so what if I don't play about my ham. I love to eat and I need meat. I'm living for me and not for others screw you mean skinny bitchin mutherfuckas!

You can leave healthy and be a beautiful bonified voluptuous Woman
