More to Love, Episode 4: Are you good or are you bad?

I tuned into last night’s episode of FOX’s reality TV series “More to Love” just as the girls, under Emme’s tutelage, were rating each other: Would Kristian, Mel B., et al. make a “Good Wife” or “Bad Wife” for Luke?
The “good/bad” rating system only serves to make people feel badly about themselves. Poor Kristian, as if she doesn’t have enough issues, was up first and was slam-bammed by the group. Labeled ‘bad’ given her emotional instability (so they say), she dissolved into tears. Mel B,. up last, was also shaken to her core, as the votes rolled in … bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad. Yes, that’s right: 6 bads/1 good.
As a Weight Loss Coach, I hear the words ‘good’ and ‘bad’ spoken quite a bit. “I was bad today, because I ate brownies.” “I was good this week, because I said no to cake 5 times.” You are neither good nor bad. You ate brownies. You said ‘no, thank you.’
I encourage people to let go of the judgement. It serves no purpose, and can often – on a ‘bad’ week – send you careening down, down, down.
What we’re really doing is creating a sustainable healthy lifestyle. We can only do our best at any given moment. Go easy on yourself, and on Kristian and Mel B. for that matter! Please!

Fat Suit.jpgDesperate times call for desperate measures! I woke up bloated this morning, desirous of a flat belly, wishing that there was a magic cure. And then I remembered the healing powers of water.
And so, I took my Our Lady of Weight Loss Sassy Water bottle and downed 4 glasses and prayed! Please join with me!
Dear Our Lady of the Flat Belly,
Please may I thirst for water
and experience with every sassy sip

Amen
What’s your favorite prayer?

Dancing with the Stars: Tom DeLay, Kathy Ireland, Debbie Mazar?

How excited are you that Tom DeLay (whether you like him or not), Debbie Mazar (who you have to like and if you’re from NuYawk, you’ve got to love) and Kathy Ireland are apart of the 2009 season of Dancing with the Stars?
I hear from my insider sources that the ‘stars’ are starting to shimmy and shake in anticipation of September. Tom DeLay has already burned off 12 pounds.
Is any of this inspiring you? Because dancing not only burns calories, offers an opportunity to socialize with friends – make new friends – partner up and ho down – and much more.
Calories – Depending on the type of dance, you can burn between 200 to 400 calories per half-hour! That’s as much as swimming, walking or riding your bicycle.
Cardiovascular Conditioning – Dancing can lead to a slower heart rate, lower blood pressure and improved cholesterol profile. The degree of cardiovascular conditioning depends on how vigorously you dance, how long you dance, and how regularly you do it. Suffice to say, three-four times a week of 30-40 minutes of vigorous dancing is considered real exercise.
Strong Bones – Many dances incorporate side-to-side movements which strengthen your weight bearing bones and can help prevent or slow loss of bone mass also known as osteoporosis. The side to side movements of many dances strengthens you weight bearing bones (tibia, fibula and femur) and can help prevent or slow loss of bone mass (osteoporosis).
Mayo Clinic researchers reported that dancing reduces stress, increases energy, improves strength, increases muscle tone and coordination.
Dancing is good for the brain. It increases blood flow to the brain, and dancing provides mental challenges as it requires memorizing steps and working with a partner, both of which are central to brain health.
Sociability – Last, but most definitely not least, dancing contains a social compoent that many other forms of exercise do not. And sociability, making friends, developing relationships can give your self-esteem a major boost and give you a positive outlook on life!
So get moving – do the waltz, the fox trot, the latin hustle or grab your partners arm and do the Do-Si-Do!
Dance It Off!
Here’s an approximation of how many calories you might burn, per hour, based on someone who is approximately 150 pounds.
* Swing dancing: 235 calories/hour
* Ballroom dancing: 265
* Square dancing: 280
* Ballet: 300
* Belly dancing: 380
* Salsa dancing: 420+
* Aerobic dancing: 540+

Kathy Ireland: Overweight. Overwhelmed.

True Blood: Save your soul with a Louisiana Swamp ‘Maryann’

Our Lady of True Blood Lips
Thirsting for a True Blood “V” cocktail? Something that will keep you safe from the clutches of Maryann? Or maybe connect you on a cellular level to Bill or Eric? Either way, Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Louisiana Swamp “Maryann” will save your soul and deliver you from evil!
Virgin Maryann, Louisiana Creole Style
Guaranteed to keep you safe from Maryann’s clutches and give you a jolt of energy that will send you into a happy spin!
Ingredients:
4 oz Spicy V-8
juice of 1/2 lime
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
6 dashes Tabasco® sauce
salt, pepper to taste
1 lime wedge
2 celery stalks
Instructions:
Add juices and sauce to a shaker with ice, adding salt and pepper to taste.
Shake vigorously enough to burn calories and send a clear message to the Devil, himself, that you are not playin’ his game.
Strain over ice cubes into a highball glass and add a lime wedge and both celery stalks.
Variation: Bloody Maryann
Add Vodka!
Celery Buying Guide
Celery is available year round. When choosing your celery, be sure that it looks crisp and snaps easily when pulled apart. Its leaves should be green in color without any yellow or brown spots. Another thing to keep an eye out for are seedstems. These are round stems that are present instead of the small stalks that one usually finds in the middle of the celery. Celery, with seedstems, is bitter tasting.
When storing your celery, place it in a sealed container in the refrigerator. If you are storing already cut or peeled celery, be sure it’s dry. Pat it with a paper towel before putting in the sealed container. And don’t even think about freezing it, as this will make it wilt.
