My weekly Stock list (11/30)

We went to Florida to visit my mom for Thanksgiving break and I took a break from stock market, not completely of course. I still was checking what's going on but very quick glance. 

My muscle boy is showing his muscles... :)
It looks like I didn't purchase any stocks in November, so I hope I can fix it in December to complete this year.

Here is my list for upcoming week:

SEASSeaWorld $16.695.0%$16.16$35.30$21.000.6924.192 years
BBLBHP Billiton plc$47.254.70%$47.20$71.44$ years
BPBP$39.325.80%$39.19$53.48$49.922.9814.13>15 years
AVPAvon products$9.782.5%$9.32$18.09$12.192.5-0.9>15 years
AUYYamana Gold$3.781.4%$3.45$10.72$6.991.4-2.079 years

My favorite is BBL.
I might buy just a small amount of SEAS, AVP or AUY, hoping they will recover soon and then sell them.

November Health Progress

I post about my passive income progress every month and I decided to start posting about my way to health progress as well.

So how was our healthy November?

In November I read books about Health:

Kevin Trudeau "Natural Cures "They" don't want you to know about" by Kevin Trudeau.

It was an eye opening book about pharmaceutical and food industries in the USA.
Well, I thought I knew a lot but I guess I did not. 
Thanks to this book I became even more careful about my food shopping and I am still in process of researching more different ways to improve my family health.

"Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth: The Surprising Unbiased Truth about What Treatments Work and Why" By Jonny Bowden

This book describes different natural treatments and healing methods.

After reading this book I totally realized that we were missing Magnesium as a supplement. So I added it to our daily vitamins and supplements.

According to this book Magnesium supposed to relax muscles, especially if you have cramps from exercises, help for a better sleep, better bones, reduce stress and help with overall better cardiovascular health.

Blogs about health I discovered this month:

I enjoy reading this blog where Olivia shares her journey to healing, energy and great health.

This blog is about life of a family with 5 kids. They describe their journey through their travel as well as healthy eating.

I follow this page on facebook and they are posting new interesting information about health every day.

Health Updates this month:

We are back to drinking Noni juice. We used to drink noni juice couple of years ago when my mom subscribed to some multi level noni selling. Back then I read a lot about noni and I liked it a lot, but when we used it through this company, it was expensive and we have to keep ordering more and more. Then I tried some noni in capsules. 
This month I found really inexpensive noni juice first on amazon, but then I discovered another website Vitacost, which sells noni and not only noni but bunch of other vitamins/supplements/herbs, etc. If you follow this link , you supposed to get $10 of your $30 order. 

These are three great books I read about noni before I agreed to drink it... :)

2. I switched to organic meat and actually start reducing our meat consumption even more. 
We do not eat much meat anyway for years. My daughter and I do not eat red meat, we eat mostly chicken and fish but my son likes steak. Last week when he asked me to buy him steak at Kroger, it took us a while to find organic grass fed beef. He cooked it at home and he said he does not like it... :) I said, well, we will try different type but it has to be organic and grass fed, sorry I can't poison you! I lectured his dad about choosing grass fed organic meat next time he will go shopping. My main line was, you don't want to poison your child, right?

3. I try to use microwave less. It's challenging, especially when I need to reheat some leftovers but I use a stove instead.

5 Reasons To Throw Out Your Microwave Oven NOW !!

4. I start using more raw veggies. 
I pre wash celery, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers, carrots and packed in an easy to reach containers. So during week I just arrange it nicely on a plate as a snack.

5. Every time I make smoothy I add one or two leaves of kale and beet top. If I add just one or two kids don't complain. It was a failure at first but then I read somewhere that I just have to use blender a little longer in order make leaves into a very smooth smoothy... :)
I wrote about smoothy here before. 

6. I drink a glass of water every morning when I wake up for a while, but now I try to remember to add lemon.

7. We go to gym every other day but after reading how chlorine is so toxic, I stopped using hot tub and wet sauna and only use dry sauna.

8. I bought more healthy snacks at Whole Food store such as different seeds and dried fruits. 

9. I don't buy all fruits/veggies/berries organic but I soak them in water with vinegar. It supposed to remove bacteria and pesticides.

Thanks for reading and have a happy and healthy month!

Can You Guess Her Age? -- Raw Vegan Diet Is Woman's Fountain of Youth

My Weekly Stock List (11/16)

I still did not buy or sell anything this month. 

Here is my list for upcoming week:

TLPProspect Capital Corporation$35.707.4%$34.50$50.00$41.001.7720.1710 years
RDS-ARoyal Dutch Shell$69.384.7%$65.58$83.425.0813.6510 years

BPBP$40.945.70%$39.45$53.48$50.032.9814.13>15 years

I do not buy stocks at their highest prices. I might miss some good stocks but I prefer to sit and wait.If I move stock to this list, it means there was a price drop or current price is somewhere in the middle.
If I have a stock on my list, it means I like something about this stock. If I buy one of these stocks, it does not mean I plan to keep them forever. I might sell them if their price would go up a lot and I feel it's time to sell.

I love Sales on my regular shopping sprays and I use this strategy for my stock shopping... :)
