'F' will always be for food.
My greatest friend. Always there when I'm down. Willing to hug me tight around the middle even when I don't want it (I so want it). Greets me in my kitchen when I can't sleep at night. Never misses a party. Even my belly snarls and whines when you're away from me. Ahhh. Love you, Food.
My worst enemy! Always there when I'm down. Willing to hug me tight around the middle even when I don't want it (I do NOT want it). Greets me in my kitchen when I can't sleep at night. Never misses a party. Even my belly snarls and whines when you're away from me. Ahhh. Curse you, Food.
Ever felt like that? :)
Yeah, me too. But food isn't evil. Our bodies actually do need and love it. Even the real 'F' word (not that 'F' word, geez!), FAT, isn't the demon that we/the media have made it.
Speaking of demons. Haaaaave you met Luc?
Anyway....what was I talki-OH YEAH!
Fat. We need it. So slice some avocado into your salad, eat a handful of cashews, dip a strawberry into the darkest, dark chocolate you can find (cacao, cacao!). Don't go crazy with it, skip the processed stuff, and your body will thank you for it.
'But my metabolism!' you say. It slows down as we age. That's just a fact. Solution? You need some muscle, baby! I'm not talking about super hero, Governator-style guns, but muscle burns more calories than fat. Your body loves muscle like the Cheetah loves Peeta (and she loveloveloves Peeta). That brings me to another 'F.' My good friend Fitness. :)
I'm still going strong with TurboFire and Shakeology, neither of which I am selling or pushing anyone to try (yes, that's a disclaimer. sorry). Something else may work for you, and that's awesome. Being different makes the world a wonderful place to live.
So, what's your balance? How do you reward yourself? It's almost time for ripe, bursting, glorious strawberries in my neck of the woods. What's in season where you live? :)
Thanks for all the Vamp feedback yesterday. Consensus? Most of us like our vamps smokin' hot and baddy, bad, ba-bad. :)
