Many of my clients tell me that they feel as if they are entitled to a treat after a long, hard day at work or a complicated day at home.  They say, “I deserve to have a piece of cake.”

The truth is that you deserve way more than a slice of cake, (no, I am not inferring that you deserve the entire cake!). Cake only lasts for a short second and then it turns on a dime (or a crumb) into a self-deprecating rant.

You deserve to have what you really, really want, which I believe is to feel at peace, to love and accept yourself, to be free of any and all self-deprecating and self-sabotaging thoughts. Letting go of the negativity will lighten your load, for sure!

Instead of turning to a piece of cake … try turning a deaf ear to cake and one or more of Our Lady of Weight Loss’s A Baker’s Dozen: Thirteen Ways to Reward Yourself at the End of a Hard Day as you Revel in the Glory of Your Greatness (Whew! Now there’s a mouthful!)

  1. Curl up in the corner and read that book that you’ve had your eye on (oh, could it be Our Lady of Weight Loss!)
  2. Download your favorite i-Tune for only $1.29 (more or less). A cheap thrill!
  3. Order groceries on-line, with your feet up. (A weigh-safer way to shop, even if you are hungry).
  4. Go for a ride on a motorcycle (wear a helmet, please!).
  5. Send the laundry out – let someone else fold the towels.
  6. String a hammock in your back yard and swing baby, swing.
  7. Get a manicure and a 10-minute massage! If you usually get a plain jane color, go bold – if you usually go bold, tone it down.
  8. Go to the movies, alone. (So great not to have to worry if others like the movie, or not.)
  9. Take a walk on a hiking trail or in a park, or around your neighborhood. Walking instead of driving about will give you a different perspective on where you live.
  10. Take in deep cleansing breaths. Don’t underestimate breathing. It’s an amazing thing!
  11. Rent a convertible and go for a joy ride. Blast the radio or your favorite CD while toolin’ around the country side.
  12. Go Mehndi. Mehndi is the Indian word for Henna. Henna is a beautiful and natural plant product that stains the skin a reddish brown color. When applied properly and in intricate designs you have a natural and temporary “tattoo” that gradually fades away as the skin regenerates.
  13. Dye your hair a new color – or brighten up your highlights.For more solid, smart, utterly useful and fun advice, join Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Kick in the Tush Club/FB!And–for the full skinny sign up for Janice Taylor’s (monthly) Kick in the Tush Club newsletter!

Our Lady of Weight Loss is well aware that some of us have bigger challenges to overcome than others, so she had me design a formula for computing our weight loss handicaps, enabling us to compete with those with high metabolisms, those who forget to eat, and the gym bunnies of the world.

How to Calculate and Use Your Weight Loss Handicap

Note: Handicaps are earned. They are for professional “dieters” ONLY.  In order to receive a handicap, you have had to be on at least five diets in your lifetime. (I suspect that qualifies most of us.)

What’s your handicap?

Instructions:
Step 1: Total the pounds lost in your last attempt to lose weight over the course of the last five weeks you were on said diet.

Step 2: Multiply that number by the number of children you have living at home.

Step 3: If you are living with an adult who insists on eating in front of you and who is insensitive to your weight loss mood swings, factor in an additional point. If he or she is truly impossible, give yourself another 3 pounds. Add to above number.

Step 4: Multiply that number by 3.

Step 5: Divide by 5. (Slice off fractions, as you would slivers of cake.)

Step 6: For every 10 points, give yourself one handicap point. Those who have a handicap of 10 or more are called “turnips.”

How to use your handicap:
The next time someone asks you how much you lost this week, feel free to add your handicap into the equation. This system
should level the field for those who are competing at group meetings, in offices or at home! Or for those who are letting the
Scales of Injustice get to them.

Remember, it’s only a number. Have some fun with it!

Your Dysfunctional Chef, Janice Taylor invites you to eat healthy, feel sated, push away from the table :)

If you want to whip up something to impress your overnight guests (or, if you want to whip up something to impress yourself), try this marvelously delish dish!  Guaranteed to keep you sated and smiling for hours to come!

Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Nachos

Ingredients:

1 cup baked tortilla chips
1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup bottled salsa
2 eggs
3 egg whites
a splash or two of milk (full fat, 2%, 1%, skim…whatever makes you happy–we’re talking a splash)
black pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream
Cilantro

Instructions:

Divide chips among serving plates, spreading into single layers; set aside.
In a small saucepan, heat cumin seeds over medium heat (no oil; dry pan!) for about 1 minute or until aromatic, stirring frequently. Add chili powder.
Stir in beans and salsa.
Stir 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through.
Remove; keep covered.

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, milk, and the black pepper.
Spray medium sized skillet with a nonstick cooking spray.
Over medium heat, pour in egg mixture.
Cook without stirring, until mixture starts to set on the bottom and around edge.
Using a large spoon, lift and fold the partially cooked egg mixture so the uncooked portion flows underneath.
Continue cooking 2 to 3 minutes or until egg mixture is cooked through but still glossy and moist.
Remove from heat.

Break up eggs, spoon over chips.
Top with salsa, cheese and a dollop of sour cream.
Sprinkle a little cilantro.

Serve and Smile!
