I am a Pop Junkie (which is far better than a Junk Food Junkie, or a Gossip Junkie, or a Junkie Junkie). Therefore, when Lil’ Kim …
who sent a shout out to her prison-mates on the first or second show of this season’s Dancing With the Stars;
who is reportedly $1 million in debt;
including $833,000 worth of liens filed by the IRS in New Jersey;
including the remaining tax debt includes a $4,089 lien filed by the state of California;
$129,410 worth of liens filed by the state of New Jersey;
and a $12,599 tax warrant filed by the state of New York;
who missed a payment on her Bentley (making her all that more endearing)
who danced so magnificently with her partner, Derek Hough, on last night’s show (source: Reality TV Mag);
accredited a good deal of her last night’s dancing success to her “Booty Board” (that’s how I heard it; Peter too “What did she say??? Huh? Booty Board?” which made perfect sense, given her bionic booty), I wanted a Booty Board, too! I set out on an Internet search for “Lil’ Kim and Booty Boards.” Needless to say, XXX-rated sites popped up immediately, sending me back to the leaderboards (as they say), and I now sheepishly see that Lil’ Kim was referencing a ‘Buddha Board!’ Ahhhh, great! Huh?What is a Buddha Board?The Original Buddha Board is a ‘philosophical toy’ that (theoretically) helps us to tap into the parts of us that we never knew existed. It is based on the Zen concept of living in the moment. Buddha Boards sit on a water base filled with natural stones. You dip your paintbrush into the water and ‘paint’ on the board that sits on top of the base. As the water slowly evaporates, so goes your art with it, leaving you with a clean slate and a clear mind; ready to create another masterpiece. Buddha Boards are available, as it turns out, just about everywhere. (Am I the only one who didn’t know what they were?) There are full sized Buddha Boards, Mini-Boards, Greeting Card size boards ranging from $35 to $7 dollars. So get your Booty or Buddha On! And …… spread the Zen word, NOT the icing!JaniceWant more success?13 Ways to Improve Your LuckHow to Build Your Self-Confidence MuscleThree Steps to Love———————————————————————————–Janice Taylor is a Life & Wellness Coach, specializing in weight loss, reinvention, transformation & happiness, author, seminar leader and 50-pound-BIG-Time-LOSER!

Just yesterday, one of my star clients (you’re all stars, truly) ‘confessed’ that she’d had some very ripe bananas in the house, and so she ‘had’ to make banana bread. Whoa! “HAD TO?” Make “Banana Bread?” And then … eat it, of course.
As you can well imagine, this led to an amazingly rich (on many levels) and potassium filled conversation. We were able to discuss love of food; food and its relationship to family and so much more. (Thank you, dear client, for your courage! For being so open and honest and willing to ‘let go’ of the banana cake!)
On a practical level, we also wondered … what else might someone do with over ripe bananas???
My suggestion: toss (gracefully) overly ripe bananas into your freezer. Then, when you are whipping up your favorite smoothie recipe, you can use one of your icy bananas! Presto, magic, allakhazam – a delicious, nutritious way to start your day!
I promised my brilliant and beautiful client that I’d send her a smoothie recipe! Lo n’ behold, wouldn’t you know it! The universe provided big time.
Just this morning, Holly & Valerie from Beliefnet’s Fresh Living blog, posted the best breakfast smoothie ever and one of the ingredients is a banana.
So thanks to Fresh Living for their timely and scrumptious, calcium filled, healthy recipe!
For more smooth & delicious links! Java Junkie Smoothie Adam Lambert and Eggs (what a way to start the day!)
