Who’s excited for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympics?

1200px-PyeongChang_2018_Winter_Olympics_svgAt my house we are all excited for the Olympics for several reason. One it’s the Olympics and they are awesome. Two I developed a love for the Korean people and culture when I served a church mission in Korea. Last but not least we are excited to watch Shawn White. Do you remember his last run at the 2014? We are excited to watch him come back. Win or loose we can’t wait to cheer on our American Athletes.

I wanted to share with you our newsletter we from 2014. I felt like it still applied.

WHY FAILURE IS GOOD FOR SUCCESS

shawn whiteAs my family and I were watching the Olympics together we told our kids “Watch Shawn White. He is the best snowboarder in the world”. Shawn White, on his qualifying runs, out-shined the rest with his usual soaring heights landing him the top rank, living up to our expectations as “the best”. Then the next night, we watched as he had two runs that were sloppy and uncharacteristic. Under intense pressure he finished 4th in the half pipe. My seven-year old son asked why we thought Shawn White was the best if he finished 4th? Henry Ford is quoted as saying “Failure is only the opportunity to begin again only this time more wisely”. What would we do, or try to do, if we were not afraid of failure? What are we not doing in our lives because we are afraid to fail? Shawn White, after his disappointing 4th place finish in front of the world said, “I tried to win… I went for it.”

I read an article titled “Why Failure Is Good for Success” that I want to share. “Society doesn’t reward defeat, and you won’t find many failures documented in history books. The exceptions are those failures that become steppingstones to later success. Such is the case with Thomas Edison, whose most memorable invention was the light bulb, which purportedly took him 1,000 tries before he developed a successful prototype. “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” a reporter asked. “I didn’t fail 1,000 times,” Edison responded. “The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.” Unlike Edison, many of us avoid the prospect of failure. In fact, we’re so focused on not failing that we don’t aim for success, settling instead for a life of mediocrity. When we do make missteps, we gloss over them, selectively editing out the miscalculations or mistakes in our life’s resume.”

 

In the hopes of empowering my kids with the mindset that failure is good for success, I have started talking to them about their failures in the most positive way. Failure is crucial to human cognition. It’s how we learn. I enjoy and encourage the opportunities for my kids to fail in safe environments. Helping them to notice their failures that have led to success in their life, encourage them to try something even if they might fail, and ask them what they learned from that specific failure. When I teach, I learn; in turn I am learning to be a better example by not being too hard on myself for my own failures or theirs. My daughter hopped into the car so excited to tell me that she failed today! I said “awesome, tell me about it!” “I took my pretest in spelling and I got 50%” she said so proudly- I gave her a high-five. On the final test she did great!

Do you avoid the prospect of failure? Do you aim for success or do you gloss over missteps or do you learn from them and begin again?

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

spaghetti lasagna

Lasagna is delicious, but it can be a bit heavy with all the white pasta noodles. Here is an alternative that is so easy.

  1. Bake one spaghetti squash in the oven on 400 until soft. I bake mine whole, on a pan, for about an hour and a half. When you take it out cut it in half with a knife. Set aside to cool.
  2. Brown up Italian sausage, ground beef, or turkey. When it is all browned add half of the spaghetti sauce. Set aside.
  3. Combine low-fat ricotta cheese, low-fat cottage cheese, low fat Italian cheese blend and two eggs. Mix well.

In a large 9×13 pan layer half of your browned meat, half of the spaghetti squash, all of the ricotta cheese mixture, the other half of the spaghetti squash. Then the rest of the browned meat, the last of the spaghetti sauce. Cover it with tin foil and put into the oven.

Bake 350 for 30 min. The sides should be bubbly. Top with shredded Italian cheese and put back into the oven uncovered to melt.

Ingredients
1 spaghetti squash
2lbs. Ground Italian sausage
2 eggs
1c. Low-fat Ricotta cheese
1c. Low-fat cottage cheese
1/2c. Low-fat Italian shredded blend
24oz Spaghetti Sauce

Our kids actually like lasagna better with spaghetti squash. Be sure to pair this dish with some delicious greens.

Enjoy!

Total Solar Eclipse 2017

solar eclipse glassesDr. Collard has ISO Solar Viewing Glasses for you. Stop by and get your free pair. NO APPOINTMENT NEEDED!!!!

Tell your friends, neighbors, and family to stop by and pick up a pair for themselves.

 

Why is this solar eclipse such a big deal? Here are some facts to get you excited.

  1. This will be the first total solar eclipse in the continental U.S. in 38 years. The last one occurred February 26, 1979 and due to weather conditions many did not see it.
  2. Everyone in the continental U.S. will see at least a partial eclipse. The moon will cover at least 48% of the Sun’s surface. Here in West Jordan the moon will cover 92% of the sun’s surface. In order to view a total eclipse you would need to be just 3 hours north.
  3. The first phase and start of the eclipse will begin at 10:13 am Monday August 21st. The Max Phase will be at 11:33 am. The end phase will be at 12:59pm.
  4. Watch how the animals behave. The total eclipse may startle an animal and change their behavior thinking that it is night time.
  5. Feel the temperature drop. The eclipse will create a quick temperature drop much like someone standing in front of your heat at a camp fire.
  6. If you miss this solar eclipse on the 21st, the next one will occur April 8th, 2024. If you travel to it’s path between Texas and Maine. The next time the solar eclipse will follow a path for all lower 48 states to view will be in about 1,000 years.
  7. To view the eclipse safely you must have NASA approved glasses with “ISO” icon with reference 12312-2 on the glasses.
  8. This truly may be a once in a life time in our area.

Hopefully this has gotten you as excited as we are.

Collard Family Photo

Collard Family Photo web

Many have noticed that the family photo in Chad’s office is a little outdated. My poor husband has begged on many occasions for me to print the new family photo. Chad’s mom has asked for new photos of the kids and I’ve never gotten around to it. I realized that I needed to improve when my sister-in-law printed a family photo for my mother-in-law off of Facebook. I really hate scrapbooking and I am afraid that my kids will inherit a hard drive of photos. However today I’m enjoying the small successes. Thanks to my friend and photographer @chariseprestonphotography I have printed photos for both the office and my mother-in-laws house. Next time you are in the office be sure to notice the current family photo.

Our patients feel more like family.

What you need to know after an auto accident.

header_accidentIn the past few weeks we have seen an increase of auto accidents in our office. I know myself, that after a car accident comes the stress of dealing with the insurance company, being without a car, and often hurting. If you are like many, your health will take a backseat to getting your car fixed. I often hear “I thought the pain would go away.” Well the problem with that is it may not go away, and if it does what problems will it cause in the future?

Often we look at the damage we can see to gauge the severity of a wreck. But improved cars with plastic bumpers that are built to rebound after impact, damage can seam very minor. The internal damage to our bodies is something that we can not see. The damage to our cars does not reflect the damage that has been caused to your body. A gentleman that was in my office had been in a roll over that totaled his car, however he himself showed little to no sign of physical injury. While other small fender benders caused severe whiplash. Here are some signs of whiplash to look for: 2009 595    

  • Headaches          
  • Dizziness
  • Pain in the shoulders or between the shoulder blades
  • Pain or numbness in the arm
  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Sleep disturbances

 

If you or someone you know has been injured in an auto accident tell them about our FREE Injury Evaluation 801-569-1141. Help prevent auto accidents by avoiding distractions, drive the speed for the current weather conditions, and wear your seat belt. Drive Safely!

Zucchini Soup

This time of year everyone has a zucchini they are trying to get rid of but how much zucchini bread can you eat? We love this soup recipe that Missy’s mom would make. It could be even more healthy than this but this is how we like it.

zuccuni soup

Zucchini Soup

4 tablespoon butter (real not fake)

2 Onions, chopped

8 small zucchinis (you can use large ones)

2 tablespoon season salt

4 c. low sodium chicken broth

1 c. milk (I like to use coconut milk)

1/4 c. flour

  1. In a stock pot melt 2 tablespoon butter add onions and zucchini with the skin on and 1 tablespoon season salt. Sauté until the zucchini is soft and the onions are translucent.
  2. When cooked, puree in food processor or blender.
  3. Use the same empty stock pot while your mixture sits in the blender. Melt 2 tablespoons butter and add 1/4 c. flour, 1 tablespoon season salt to make a creamy white sauce. Then slowly add your milk while whisking together to prevent lumps.
  4. Add your puree to your stock pot and continue to heat, do not boil.

 

Adjust seasonings to taste and serve warm. My mother-in-law would add a spoonful of sour cream to each bowl when serving. We still do this to our kids bowls. For a complete meal add a side of chicken breast and 1/2 c. grains. We like to add the chopped chicken breast and cooked barley right into our soup– not how mom did it but it is healthier than a loaf of warm bread.      ♥♥ U Mom

Enjoy!

Patient Spotlight- Loretta Lynn’s amateur National Motocross Champion

Image215We love hearing about your successes when you come into the office. We treat many different types of athletes and athletes of all ages. I’d like to brag about Tayler a 12 year old patient who recently won the Highly coveted Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National Motocross Championship in Tennessee in the girls 9-13 class. She won all three motos declaring her the champion for 2016.

Tayler has been riding since she was four years old when her dad who loved to ride put her on a bike. It is her love for riding that has kept her and her family traveling across the nation competing. Most kids who compete at this level are home schooled- not Tayler! She loves school and her friends and just started 7th grade. Tayler not only rides motocross but snowboards, mountain bikes and crushes it at CrossFit. Her dad says “She excels because of her strong work ethic and her passion. What makes her so great is that she is a shy, humble kid who is not even aware of the award she just won. To her it is just another race.”Image302

Your kids are probably much like Tayler, with a love for a sport that is demanding on their bodies. Let us help prevent, repair and provide pain relief that is drug free and without harmful side effects. Do not let pain get in the way of your goals. Call today 801-569-1141.
