Pancakes Today: Lent Tomorrow

Batter Up!!! Pancake Tuesday known also as Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, is celebrated the day before the beginning of Lent. This is the time that we remember the forty days that Jesus spent in the desert. It is also known as Shrove Tuesday, from the word shriven, which means ‘you are cleansed of your sins before Lent begins.’
Several centuries ago, the English traditionally used up all the fat and flour before the fasting of Lent began and pancakes were the best way to do this. Thus, Pancake Tuesday!

Low-Fat and Sugar-Free Pancakes
Ingredients:

2 egg whites *
1 egg *
1 cup buttermilk *
2 to 3 tbsp. natural applesauce (no sugar) *
1 cup flour *
1 tsp. baking powder *
1/2 tsp. baking soda *
1/2 tsp. salt *
1/4 cup blueberries

Directions: Mix ingredients together. Spray griddle with Pam. Pour batter onto hot griddle. Serve with spreadable fruit (no sugar) or applesauce or nothing – just plain. YUM.

Spread the word … NOT the icing!

Fear of Losing

Fat Suit.jpg
A TASTY TIDBIT from the “Fill Up On Happiness e-Diet CURE.” Before you can fill up on happiness, you need to clear out the cobwebs. Join with us as we declutter our minds, physical environments and bodies and make room for happiness!!!
I’ve been wearing a fat suit since birth. (Or was – best to be aware of the words we use and how they affect our unconscious minds and behaviors!) Yes, I was the only baby who gained weight in the hospital nursery, an ominous sign, and by the time I was 8 years old, I weighed 112 pounds. Thankfully my friend Belinda (name changed to protect the innocent) weighed 113 pounds. She was the fat one! And the rest is FATstory, as they say!
You could say that wearing a fat suit was my identity. It was all I’d ever known. I was the fat girl. I was the fat girl who was always (and I mean always) picked last in gym. I was the girl that the kids called “Fatty Lu.” I was fat. Some of us are born with ‘fat issues;’some collect them along the way.
I understand that we want to lose that weight soooo badly that we can taste it! (HA!) But if you don’t know the person who resides underneath the fat, if you so closely identify with the excess layers, if the fat is protecting ‘you’ in any way, shape or form, it is difficult to imagine any other weigh.
These excess layers of fat keep you safe from:

  • Unwanted sexual advances,
  • Pressure to succeed in a career,
  • Not liking who you are,
  • Being rejected for reasons other than being fat,
  • Being truly unhappy (what is you are thin and look at your new self and are stillunhappy?)
  • Embarrassment of not being able to play sports … and more!
    What do those extra layers do for you?
    At the end of the day, both literally and figuratively (how do you feel at the end of each and every day? and how will you feel at the living end?), holding onto your ‘fat identity’, being paralyzed by fear, is NOT living.
    What to do?
    Change your lifestyle, as slowly and safely as possible, allowing these small changes to start to move you toward a happy identity!

    Resourceful, Creative and Thinnish: words to chew on

    I decided to write about creativity today because too many of you guys write me and tell me that you are not creative. And I BEG to differ.
    YOU are tremendously creative.
    Creativity is NOT about being a visual artist, a musician, a song writer, a poet, or any of those types of things.
    The Latin root of the word ‘creative’ is “to have grown.” Being creative is a process that we use all day long, every single day of our lives.
    “To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.” ~ Henri Bergson.
    Get it? YOU are endlessly creating yourself. It’s important that you do ‘get it,’ because you have created every aspect of yourself and your life by the conscious and unconscious choices that you have made. Once you grasp this idea, you can start to think ‘outside the box’ creatively and come up with many more choices and ways in which you can creative your life.
    “Creativity is a learning process where the teacher and the pupil are located in the same individual.” ~ Arthur Koestler
    Don’t let perfectionism or self-criticism get in the way. Don’t allow your evil twin to send negative messages, “I can’t do it!”
    You can take a creative approach. You can grow, take risks, experiment, explore, break the rules, and make mistakes. You can play and have fun! You have but one life to live “your way.”
    Recognize that you are your own teacher and pupil.
    Spread the word … NOT the icing!
