New Year’s Resolutions
If you are like many people the last few days you have vowed to eat better and exercise more. In theory Dieting is simple math. Burn more calories then you take in. But in reality it is not that simple. If you want to eat healthy foods then buy heathly foods. If you can not so no to potato chips then don’t have potato chips around. Figure out your pattern: if you are a “snacker,” snack on health nuts or trail mix. If you like sweets, buy dark chocolate or…

"In one year and out the next week"
It’s been said-“A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.” Last year about this time, I wrote the following on New Year’s Resolutions: Why Bother? This is the time of year when people start telling themselves this is the year that they are going to get in shape, eat right and stop stealing office supplies. And most will have failed the first two goals by the end of the Sugarbowl Halftime Report, and #3 by 4:00 on the first Monday after the holiday….

The White Stuff
Tricked or Treated Today’s edition is brought to you by the real boss, Mrs Spine:It’s that time of year again, where parents will be busy with all sorts of Halloween related activates. My kids like yours are so hyped up about the upcoming “Holiday”. My middle daughter came home yesterday and informed me that she needed to use a pillow case for trick or treating because you can get more candy that way. Halloween has turned in to sugar-polooza. Once a year is one thing.
Having just spent the weekend in OC I made the following observations: people either don’t take a friend swimsuit shopping, or their friend lies to them. Remember when friends were supposed to be honest with you and not just prop you up in your own delusions? Remember the 1980’s Friends don’t let friends drink and drive, do drugs etc? Well, consider me your friend. And I don’t want you wearing shape-ups or other rocker type shoes anymore (nor do I want to see you in some of those, let’s say…

Great Big Fancy Word of the Day
As many of you know I have 3 little girls that LOVE everything pink. So it goes without saying that Pinky Dinky Doo is one of our favorite shows. Just in case you haven’t seen it (I’ll try not to give it away) Mlle. Dinky Doo goes about telling her little brother and pet Guinea Pig a story using the “Great Big Fancy Word of the Day.” Today’s GBFWDs are ‘acid-base precipitation reaction’. ‘Acid-base precipitation reaction’: Kidney stones. I have been told that the pain from a kidney stone is…

This is the time of year when people start telling themselves this is the year that they are going to get in shape, eat right and stop stealing office supplies. And most will have failed the first two goals by the end of the Sugarbowl Halftime Report, and #3 by 4:00 on the first Monday after the holiday. So in other words, don’t bother. The problem with lofty goals is that they are unattainable. Then when you slip, you get depressed and completely give up. Or sometimes people will set…

A Three Hour Tour
Not to bore you with the mundane of my life, but in Sunday School lately we’ve been reading from Isaiah. His prolific work is often quoted by the majority of all major religions and is also widely used in history and classic humanities. His biggest claim to fame though was the use of allegories. I have one for you, but unlike the prophet, I won’t make you figure it out yourself…
Fat is Fun
Fun facts about FAT -Your (and yes I’m talking to you) brain is made mostly of fat -Eating fat does not make you fat (eating more calories than you burn, be they fat, carbs or protein makes you fat). -Fat is the primary fuel source for your heart, especially during aerobic activity. -Unsaturated fats (the one’s you can’t see at room temperature) are good for you.
Day 6 of Novalife Kenny
8:00am- Great Monday and not freely hungry or upset because I cant eat. I am almost done my Nova-life experience and I must say I have tried harder things with no results. I am telling you its definitely worth the 1 week experience to do the right thing in order to loss weight.
Day 5 of Novalife Kenny
8:00am- I think my stomach is shrinking. I just got finished drinking the shake and I fill full. So I am thinking that the Nova-life is working. 12:00pm- I wanted something to eat so I got a salad. It was huge, but I am upset. Why you may ask? Because I sat there with my very big salad and I could even finish the whole thing. I am a grown man and can even finish a bowl of lettuce.
