Flirting with Food

Wednesday, July 23, 2014



People have all kinds of reasons for pushing food at you...
but with all the BAD news these days
I came across a very funny NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC presentation about
a photographer and a leopard seal.

I think this one will make you smile....
Photographer Paul Nicklen receives an unexpected gift ... (7 min)
www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmVWGvO8Yhk

so the next time you are faced with a food pusher...
remember the leopard seal and the penguins.

I'm still doing great with food... lots of veggies ...
cooking ahead to avoid a warm kitchen.
The heat and humidity are back...no long walks for me.
Dance fever ... literally.

stay cool..... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Seems like I get "big eyes" when I go to the market and buy too many fruits and vegetables. They don't all get eaten but I try! Gonna have to throw stuff out and start over soon. Good job with the fruits and vegetables.

So we had some nice weather this weekend when it wasn't too hot to walk early in the morning. Are you finding any other ways toe exercise? Maybe swimming?

    The cats and the seal/penguin video reminds me of dinner parties I used to have. I totally get where the cat and the seal are coming from. I used to cook all day for these events and intended for the guests to eat what I fixed if I had shove their faces in it or throw a piece of meat on top of their heads.

Keep Flying

Monday, July 21, 2014



Holding on to the Past...whether it's a bad memory, old habits, old preferences...
can be a huge waste of time and energy.
Even false expectations can be draining.
I tend to pour a lot of enthusiasm and effort into a NEW PROJECT
and walk around in the state of euphoria....until the novelty wears off...
and I stop getting the 'unbelievable' results that I got initially.
But ... isn't that why it's called a JUMP START.
It isn't a long term reaction....it's a running start.
Something to get the momentum going...
but something that still needs you to flap your wings to keep you in the air.
I need to realize that ... for me personally...
a lack of motivation is usually accompanied by a CRASH LANDING.
I may be okay with coasting occasionally, but the older I get,
the stronger the wind current feels...it gets harder to get that lift...
unless you make it a priority to keep aloft.

These days...I am focusing more and more on getting protein from plant sources
and Garnishing my dishes with meat/fish/poultry.
Last night I made lentils in some chicken broth and diced tomatoes, added garlic and Italian herb seasoning,.. then made a 3 oz serving of cod (in a little of the residual liquid) and had that with half cup of rice and chopped broccoli.

today I was watching COOKING WITH SHIN
a Korean cooking series on DramaFever.com (English)
and found some great ideas for vegetable based meals
www.dramafever.com/drama/4512/1/Cook
ing_with_Shin/


the Internet gives us plenty of great ideas from around the world at our finger tips. Happy Surfing

    My adventures with flying have not ended well. I take off well, flap my "wings" and am doing great until I tell myself that it's impossible for me to fly and then I drop like a bomb. Splat!

I go through periods where I'm sick of meat, which isn't good as my doctor wants me on a high protein diet. I can only handle so many beans. I'm not eating any tofu. I really need to live near the ocean because I love fish and seafood and could live on it.

A lot of the new shows are naked now. Naked and Afraid. Naked Dating. I have an idea for the Cooking Channel - Cooking With Skin or Naked Men Cooking. I have a short attention span and this might help.

Still Working on the Endorphins

Thursday, July 17, 2014



Still not doing well with too much cardio,
but I am getting stronger with the strength training.
Yesterday, I broke down and treated myself to some thin sliced ham...
I haven't had ham in years.
I should have bought some melon to go with it...
but I didn't think of it until I got home.

I had a big lunch of roasted veggies and chicken
Tonight I'm going for oatmeal with blueberries.
Why not?

Have a fun Weekend ... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon ciao

    Can I have some of your endorphins??? Please???? You look pretty perky there. I'm jealous! Is that a ham you are laying on? It looks like a corn feeder.

I have both ham and melon. I eat lean ham occasionally. I don't like the salt but it's not a terrible choice compared to things like eating a can of Crisco or an entire carrot cake. I like to think big. LOL. I have some blueberries too! You can the oatmeal though. Gag! Ick! Yuck. LOL.

I did 45 minutes of dancing to fast meringue and worked up a sweat.
I don't feel energetic in the summer...but it hasn't been brutal....yet

I'm still drinking about 10 glasses of water (with lemons and limes)
and I am well hydrated.

One thing I used to do was to make sure I took a cool shower (not cold) then sit in a fan. On really hot days, I used to lay a wet bath towel on top of me with the fan blowing at the same time.

Obstacles -- this too shall pass

I found this very funny video about Cats and Dogs
YOU SHALL NOT PASS (new version 2014) ...3:41 minutes ....enjoy
www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdxyRoGmw_8

Good Day yesterday...I limited my starch to 1/3 cup of rice and 1/2 cup peas
Woke up at 5:30AM this morning and tried to convince myself to take a walk
It did NOT happen......oh well....I'm my own biggest obstacle.
{...hence, the blog...}

Have a great weekend... emoticon emoticon emoticon ciao

    Great photos and loved the video, Gandalf - "You, Shall Not Pass!" It was adorable!

Once you start thinking about exercise as something fun (dancing, pilates, yoga, a nice walk in beautiful scenery) maybe you wouldn't be your own biggest obstacle...... emoticon

Hope you have an awesome weekend Sheryl!

    Love it! Although, my cat would have NEVER eaten the dog food. She thought it was disgusting. How did she know it was dog food anyway?

    I saw the weather report, that it is supposed to be in the 70's next Tues. & Wed. and my 1st reaction was to put everything off until then. My bad.

    The video was too funny! My cats do that to my dog too!! lol

I know what you mean about being your own obstacle... I'm my own too.

That's why Spark friends help so much. We've all been there done that and our buddies encourage us to keep going.

Thanks for the blog.

    Our poodle cross always lies in wait to mock attack our Rottweiler cross and he always falls for it. His life is just one big obstacle course.

    Hmmmm... 6:30 is much too early to go for a walk. It's still dark. BUT... tonight you can do it... Instead of TV after dinner... right? no, me neither... LOL.. Actually we are going to dinner and a play tonight. minor walking involved - a couple of blocks from parking garage to restaurant, and then back to theatre. somehow 4 blocks or so does not really count... Oh well. At least it is steps for my Fit Bit!

    Thanks for the good chuckle! I don't know who to feel sorrier for, the dog or the cat! Have a great day!

P.S. Don't skip too many fruits and veggies. Our bodies need them!

    Poor dog w/the "cone of shame" on. So hard on them!

Hugs and for sure, have to figure out ways over, under, around and/or through obstacles. WE make it possible.
