So Anyway

Well, like I said, it isn't my intention to turn this into my personal weight-battle journal. But there are a couple of things I'm going to mention. There won't be endless recipes for rabbit food.

And I'm not about to reduce myself to grazing on monster salads for every meal.

Starving myself never worked. The experts make it very clear what happens to your metabolism when you try to starve the fat off. The body says, "Uh oh..." and it defends itself by slowing that metabolism down. Kinda not what we're going for here.

Now, I've had success with this whole thing before. I've actually been "there" a few times in my life, so I figure I'll go with what I know. I have to back off on the weight-training. After all, if I try to hoist big barbells with this brittle body...

I had some luck using this in the past. It's called the Ab-Doer. You can google it if ya wanna buy one. I promise this isn't some paid endorsement.

And this isn't a shock absorber. It's called a "bullworker" and it works with "isometrics". It won't turn you into Arnold, but with some dedication, it actually helps tone and tighten.

It's going to be a healthy diet mixed with a sensible exercise regime. No diet pills, no whacky supplements. Good food, a lot less sugar, and exercise. I say that bad word twice, because I tried to b.s. myself a few times in the past, thinking Dexatrim, or TrimSpa, or worse, would get my body in shape. It didn't and it won't. Nothing is going to shave the pounds off, (well, maybe a chainsaw might, but)except less calories and actual movement.

Oh and, yes, I did work out today. Ok, I exercised. Not ready to call this working out, just yet, ok?


  1. Hmmm....Chainsaw eh?

  2. Ummm, that's rabbit food in that picture? Yeesh.

  3. Portion control is the major weapon around here. Seeing ice cream in 1/3 cup servings takes some getting used to, though.

    Truthfully, my husband would gladly eat a monster salad every day. He loves salads. Not me.

  4. Wouldn't it be great if we could actually use the chain saw? ;-) Kinda like ice sculpting; we could sculpt our bodies....

    I think you're going about this in a healthy way: Good foods plus exercise.


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
