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,

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.

Woodstock: The Minister, God and Me

2009-08-16-CafePresswoodstock.jpg
For whatever insane reason, and yes – I mean insane – my mother liked to ‘move.’ Nothing got her more juiced than a new floor plan, color scheme, modern furniture and a fresh set of neighbors. Between my birth and 18th birthday, we’d hopped from one Long Island Expressway stop to another – 7 times, in fact, averaging a move every 2.5 years. Barely giving me enough time to unpack, let alone adjust.
Taking into account that I was a painfully shy, eye-glass wearing (before they had the technology to crunch-down ‘coke’ sized eyeglasses), chubby teenager who had finally made her way into a circle of friends, you can well imagine how excruciatingly painful the 1969 move was. I’m having 1969 style flashbacks as I write this!
For those who are frustrated decorators and/or real estate agents and are curious to know, we moved to Amityville on the border of Massapequa Park. The house was a split level; three floors. The living room, dining room and kitchen made a nice L-shape on the main floor; a short set of stairs led to the master bedroom and to my grandmother’s bedroom (please pause and add bucket loads of pathology to the picture, as my mother and grandmother were not the best mother/daughter act ever), and then a second set of short stairs led to another two bedrooms – mine and my brother’s (who – please note – had dropped out of college and was in danger of being drafted).
The main floor was covered by orange sculpted carpeting. My bedroom walls were covered in black and white daisy wallpaper; an exact match to my black and white daisy bedspread, with a splash of lemon yellow pillows to break it up.
Let’s review: It’s 1969. I am an awkward, to say the least, freshman in high school. We move. I am Miserable (with a capital M). My mother has a strong aversion to depressed teenagers.
Mother and grandmother lock horns and spend a good deal of time bitterly embattled over the “A-1 Steak Sauce Fight of the Century.” Sides are taken and aluminum foil walls are built in an effort to keep the A-1 from running from the family’s meat into my grandmother’s slab.
My brother is in danger of being drafted, which has sent my mother into orbit, like you can’t even imagine. Oh – my father? He’s at work and even if he’s home, he’s pretty much silent. The color scheme is pretty, I’ll give her that! Sixties design is the best!
Enter God, the Minister and his wife. A young hippie dippy minister, God bless him, and his wife move to town in the same time-vortex as we do. And he is Hell bent on getting to Woodstock. He creates a Christian Youth Group, rents a van, and gathers his flock, assuring parents that God will be traveling with us.
Even though my mother is an angry atheist, she is on this like white on rice. Convinced that I will make friends and end the dreariness, she packs me off. Am I excited? Not really. I’m too busy wallowing in my 9th grade teenage drama.
Ten of us (I am the youngest), pile into the Minister’s van (straight out of a Cheech and Chong movie). We head off to Woodstock. We hit traffic and it’s quite clear about 3/4 of the way up the Interstate that we are not going to make it.
We roll into Monticello and spend the night in a two-bit motel, next to a burger joint/bar that’s loaded with pinball machines. We ‘play’ all night and head back home in the morning.
Once again, the journey proves more important than the destination. I may not have physically made it to Woodstock, but by traveling with the minister and his flock, I experienced the essence of Woodstock. We bonded, shared and loved on a cellular level.
And I picked up some timeless teen tips …
Timeless Teen Tips from 1969:
1. Before asking permission to go to a dance, go on a weekend sleepover, spend the night on the beach, preface is with, “Mom, the Minister and his Christian Youth Group are planning … ” Doesn’t matter if you believe in God or not, it screams ‘wholesome, safe.’
2. Vans are a very cool place to hang out. Make friends with people who have vans.
3. Hide cigarettes and any other personal items before heading out on a trip. Mother’s can be snoops.
4. Your stock automatically rises when you tell people that you went to Woodstock. Wear it like a badge! Alternatively, for these times, if your parents went to Woodstock, wear their badge!
