Paying off an old debt collection can update the last date of activity and the date reported. Some FICO scoring models give less than a 2% difference in whether a collection is paid or unpaid. The greatest amount of weight is given to the date of last activity. In other words, if you have an old collection reporting correctly and you pay it, then it simply updates the date of last activity and may have a much larger negative impact on your score, than it would have had you left it unpaid. #myth#collection#account#creditrepair#credit#score#didyouknow#education#knowledgeispower#finance#robdawkinsjr
CHOOSING A COSMETIC SURGEON. Part 1
Cosmetic surgery is a major decision. You should give careful thought to choosing a provider.
Credentials: Don’t hesitate to verify a physician’s medical license, certifications and professional society memberships and ask what the requirements are to be a member or to be board certified in that specialty.
Demeanor: Credentials are important, but make sure you are comfortable with the personal rapport between you and your surgeon. You should feel at ease with the staff, as much of your communication will be with them. Your concerns should always be addressed. Do not be satisfied with an incomplete answer.
Experience: Ask about the surgeon’s medical education and training specific to cosmetic surgery and the procedure which you are considering. How many procedures of this kind has the doctor done and how often does he or she perform them?

🚫3 signs that your diet approach is NOT going to get you permanent results:
1️⃣There’s an “off limits” food list.🙄
Restriction is unnecessary and unsustainable. Cutting out an entire macro group (like carbs) is unnecessary. Can you really imagine never eating cake again?🍰
2️⃣You are finding yourself binging on sweets because they’re “not allowed”.😮 STOP THE #yoyodiet
3️⃣You are not actually LEARNING anything about how or why you’re losing the weight, and you’ll gain it all back & then some the second you stop following that plan.😭 Your coach should be educating you along the way! #knowledgeispower ☝🏻This last one though... INFURIATES me.😡 I can’t fathom having my clients blindly follow protocols without understanding the reason behind them. That’s not how you create long term change!🙅🏻♀️
👉🏻My clients are taught about nutrition and given the breakdown of what we’re doing and why, because that is how you learn about your body’s specific responses to training and food; and that is how you continue to be successful by yourself when you’re done with coaching.😉🙌🏻
✅Sick of quick fixes that get you no results?! Sick of being promised magical weight loss and seeing none?! Let me show you how to get REAL results and keep them!🤗
✨link in bio to apply for 1:1 coaching!✨
When you are doing an exercise are you focusing on the movement or the muscle?
Are you training more so for strength, lean muscle gain or fat loss?
What are your weak points?
How much should you eat to help you get there?
Just some things to consider when building your plan.
If you've barely considered any of the above maybe it's time to invest in yourself!
This isn't a plug. This is me telling you that if you want to learn how to play guitar, you would get lessons. Sure you can teach yourself but it takes years longer.
Your health and fitness is no different. Investing in yourself and getting a good coach will save you alot of money in the long run!
Tip for today! ALWAYS read your labels, no matter what you are buying. .
Sometimes words like RAW or NATURAL can be deceiving. My husband bought one and I bought the other. 🤦🏼♀️ I usually look for the word fragrance and avoid at all costs. It can mean “chemicals” 😬. When I started my health journey after failure to conceive, this was one of the FIRST things brought to my attention. .
I cut out all fragrance about 9 or 10 years ago. I don’t wear perfume, lotions or shampoos/conditioners, deodorant or even burn candles because of this. It absorbs into your body and causes all kind of havoc. Just recently I even stopped dying my hair. These are just a few things I could think of. .
I always vowed being politically minded that I would leave politics off of my #daddiesdiary account! However In light of #brexit@theresamay and @andrealeadsom I feel I owe it to say I DO NOT AGREE, THIS IS NOT IN MY NAME! I feel it a real shame we are regressing in our political stance! I wake up to my boys, I love them, I wipe their tears, I bear the brunt of their anger, I support and encourage them to be the best version of themselves and they allow that In me also! The idea that you can pollute a child’s concept of self or gender or sexuality through learning is just insane! Equally I want my children to benefit from living in a multicultural country, this ideology of closing down our borders, regaining control, all based on nostalgia and rhetoric saddens me deeply! I truly believe better to be a part of collect change and reform than the mess we are faced with! So when I’m in a Position to buy my first house and not rent, I won’t just own what im given as I chose to buy not rent, much like this concept of we voted to leave not on a deal! Another reason the far right and their deplorable immorality have no place in “modern” society!! A complete disgrace!!!!l when I took my driving test, I booked it after lots of lessons learning how to best meet the test criteria! I knew I had to achieve a certain amount of points and perform one of several manoeuvres! I didn’t do it with my eyes closed!! #brexit#brexshit#lgbt#lgbtfamily#childrenmatter#knowledgeispower#theresamay#andrealeasom#timeforreform#backtothepeople#peoplesvote#theyareus#thisisfsmily#2dads#proEU#remain
💥Foam Rolling or Self-Myofasical Release
Fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue beneath the skin that surrounds every muscle, bone, organ etc. Basically covering your entire body. Within this fascia you can form “adhesions” or “trigger points” which can cause pain. Foam rolling could allow the fascia, and therefore muscles, to separate, relax, and decrease pain or discomfort.
Pre-workout, foam rolling could also improve your workouts by literally warming up your muscles. This helps loosen up tissues and joints and increases range of motion - which helps you move better during your workout and prevent injury.
Post-workout, increasing blood flow to the tissues you just used can help speed up recovery time by minimizing post workout soreness known as delayed-onset muscle soreness, or DOMS.
The best way to benefit from foam rolling is to roll regularly. Stick to major muscle groups such as glutes, hamstrings, quads, calves, traps, and lats.👌🏼

Repost from @ascension_guide_sandra_walter ・・・
As a new solar cycle begins at Equinox, the fresh revelation and renewal energies amplify. This Embodiment passage calls forth a brand new way of being in the body. A higher level of spirit, completely integrated, unique and creative expression of Source. We stabilize the newly migrated organic timelines and ascended realities with Equinox (call this forth, beloveds). Equilibrium as the cosmic heart emerges through us, Gaia, our SUN and the Stargates. A Divine synchronization; as above, so below. As within, so without.
Becoming the Solar Flash
Many have been witnessing Solar flashing activity – within and without- since mid-2015. As with most Ascension experiences, we get the preview of coming events, then they unfold. All new experiences need to be integrated, then dispersed to the collective, as an act of mercy. It softens psychological, emotional, physical and spiritual distortions to have these new experiences ease their way into the morphogenetic field. Notice how that integration rate has increased through the years; another accelerating side-effect of unity consciousness.
Your first Ascension-column Solar flash encounter is an unmistakable experience. Either you will see the SUN flashing with open-eye vision, or experience the flashing activity when in meditation.
What it is
This is specifically Solar activity, related to the activation of the Solar heart component of the Ascension process. Solaris (the SUN) is becoming more crystalline, Gaia is becoming a Spiritual SUN, and HUmanity is evolving into an Ascended state which is Diamond-Solar in nature, to compliment the rewrite of these realities into the crystalline/Christed platform.
The Solar Cosmic Christ path of Ascension is to be in perfect attunement with organic cosmic law, and that includes the feeling of becoming One with all that is. Our hearts become a Divine reflection of this Christed model. Through the Ascension process, we refine our hearts to do what Solaris and Gaia are doing; become purified conduits of Source consciousness.
