THE BIGGEST LOSER: Season 8

The Biggest Loser kicked off their new season last night. The ‘big’ news is Shay who weighs-in at 476 pounds. Biggest-Loser ever? Or just the Biggest ever? Who knows. But for those who watch, know this. Jillian and Bob have their work cut out for them. There will be no teams; people will compete mano a mano – although they will eventually be teamed up with strangers. How will that play out? Jillian and Bob are not competing either. Hmmmm … dullest ever?

Flaming Lips: No Licking Allowed

Flaming Lips: Don't LickLips are amazing. They help us to eat, talk, smile, and express emotions. And, most importantly, they were made for kissing. We use them all the time, yet we don’t know their real name.
It is ‘the vermilion border’. And guess what – the vermilion border (okay, I’ll call them lips) is not made of skin, rather something close to mucous membranes.
Lips are vulnerable as they are not protected by thick layers of skin, like the rest of our body. The blood vessels in our lips are close to the surface, thus giving them their luscious color.
Lips lack sebaceous (oil) glands and therefore have no natural oils. They burn in the summer and are among the first casualties of the fall and winter. It’s likely that they will dry – and in extreme conditions – crack.
The resulting damage can increase your chances of developing cold sores or even lip cancer.
How to care for them?
Protect them against the elements (in summer and winter); stock up on lip balm with protective sunscreen. Due to the damaged ozone layer, the sun is strong year round. And your lips are more likely to become dehydrated in winter. If you live in snowy areas, consider how the light is reflecting off the sun. It’s stronger than the summer sun!
Drink plenty-O-water. Helps hydrate your entire system, including your lips.
No licking allowed. Not your friend’s ice cream cone or your lips! Licking makes your lips drier. Every time you lick your lips, the saliva evaporates and with it goes your natural moisture (which isn’t plentiful to begin with!).
No chewing or biting your lips. For goodness sake, it looks awful, and you are removing the little bit of skin that your lips have.
Be sensitive. At the end of the day, gently remove your ruby red lipstick.
Before bed, slather on some more lip balm or vaseline.
Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Keep those vitamins pumping through your system.
Kiss away – but be careful! Although not as reliable as fingerprints, there are no two lip prints alike, and they be used to identify you!

What did you have for breakfast today?

Every so often I review the basics. Always a good idea just in case somehow or another the information has escaped you or perhaps you’ve got a case of amnesia. Seems to happen to a lot of folk who are dieting, doesn’t it?
TRUE or FALSE? Skipping breakfast aids weight loss.
Maybe y’all think that if you don’t eat breakfast, you just saved yourself 300 calories and are that much closer to that skinny-minnie body that you’re after. Sorry to be the one to tell you, but it just doesn’t work that way!
What THOSE IN THE KNOW say:
A recent study conducted at the University of Texas at El Paso found that those who eat a morning meal actually ingest less calories over the course of the day.
The Scary State of OVER-HUNGRY:
Skipping meals leads to a state of ‘over-hungry,’ which often leads us down the path of destruction – straight to lack of control distorted satiety signals.
It becomes more difficult to tell when you are full. This can result in taking in more calories than had you eaten your breakfast in the first place.
The Benefits of Breakfast:
Eating breakfast is also known to improve concentration, problem solving ability, mental performance, memory and mood. Life is tough enough without this extra added pressure!
One Thing that YOU CAN Do Today!
Eat up, eat healthy!
Righteous Recipe
Juicy Smooth Breakfast Shake

1/2 cup plain low-fat or no-fat yogurt

Serena Williams: A Sundae “Love Yourself” Puzzle

Serena Williams’ outburst in the US Open 2009 in a match with Kim Clijsters against a lines-woman for making a wrong call got me to thinking the messages we send out and how they reflect upon how we feel about ourselves! This week’s Sundae Puzzle is for you Serena!
Click to Mix and Solve
“It’s surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you’re not comfortable within yourself, you can’t be comfortable with others.” ~ Sydney J. Harris
“We have the need to be accepted and to be loved by others, but we cannot accept and love ourselves. The more self-love we have, the less we will experience self-abuse.
Self-abuse comes from self-rejection, and self-rejection comes from having an image of what it means to be perfect and never measuring up to that ideal. Our image of perfection is the reason we reject ourselves the way we are, and why we don’t accept others the way they are.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz
“There is no freedom like seeing myself as I am and not losing heart.” ~ Elizabeth J. Canham
“If we could learn to like ourselves, even a little, maybe our cruelties and angers might melt away.” ~ John Steinbeck
