have it your way for under $1?

This is my son. He is preparing for a post-apocalyptic world. You know - when food gets scare and we have to live off the land. Eat bugs. So he is practicing by eating his stuffed lady bug.
So maybe not. I was going to blog about the post apocalyptic world, but then I remembered it is New Year’s Resolution time. Pfft! I understand it helps some people to associate a literally new time with new behaviors. I just hope that people start moving towards nipping problems as they occur rather than waiting for the calendar days to dwindle down to another year.
Why the picture of the boy? Why not? He’s nomsing on a fake grumpy ladybug. That just so happens to be more real than other food out there. You think that All Beef Patty for $.99 is really 100% beef? Really? It’s cost less than a dollar! What does that tell you? People have been trying to show just how little meat is in fast food burgers. Nothing new. Last year, when sued, Taco Bell said it HAD to add other things to its meat to bring up flavor and quality. It’s not affordable food, it’s cheap…in quality.

So if you must use the New Year’s as a time to straighten out your habits, think meat. Sure you want to save money, but don’t be stupid about your health. It might be better to remove a habit to support a healthier lifestyle. Go to the bar four times a week to drink with friends? Drink water, don’t go out so much, carpool to save gas money. A few extra dollars will allow you to buy real meat and cook your own hamburger or scale up from fast food joints to an actual restaurant that serves real meat burgers.

For most diets, processed foods and fast foods are not at the top of the list. In this world and time, when you can get that many people to agree on one thing, slap a “profound” sticker on it and call it good.

Dream Planning Realization #1

For quite some time, I could tell my life has been slipping away from me. Not in that dying sort of way, at least not physically. However, I have sunken more into my work in the name of having a better life and all I have to show for it is - more work. Not exactly the way I thought I'd be digging myself out of the work hole. It isn't that I view my work as a hole and am unhappy with it. I love my jobs. I do. And that's part of the problem. They give me a means to meet other needs, while still being pretty darn likable. So I don't realize when I need to pull back to focus on the other things in my life. You know about the other things - friends, family, health, wellness. Things. Example - I work to earn money so I can take my family on trips to neat places. I have worked. I have made money. We haven't gone anywhere. For the past few years, my brother has been living in different places and it wasn't until recently that we ventured out his way for a visit. We m…

Beauty of things

I will miss Michelle Obama. She was classy and beautiful despite what the Facebook trolls would have you believe. She was an accomplished woman with a legal career before she stepped foot in the White House. She could be formal and she could dance the Dougie. She sang Carpool Karaoke and she spoke eloquently during official functions. She cared about the health of the youth of this nation. I was touched by how grounded she was and inspired by her achievements as a person, wife, and mother. I expected to read nasty comments by Facebook trolls, but I wasn’t ready to personally experience hearing negativity about her. The blatant comparison of her to a primate was ridiculous. Absolutely, ridiculous. If there is any animal to compare her to, it is a unicorn. While that comparison was as in-your-face as it could be, others were not. Beauty/class has returned to the White House. I heard that a few times. You can veil your disrespect as much as you like, but it’s quite easy to pull that on…

don't give me your attitude!

I’m tired. I’m sure there are many people out there who are tired too. Perhaps you're more tired than I am. So what the hell am I doing blogging when I could be napping? I’m trying to get the word out – sometimes you have to work your ass off!!!
It’s time for another physique competition. This time, hubby is also prepping for his first physique competition too. It’s been the typical love/hate thing going on. And how can it be anything but? My husband and I are at opposite ends of most any spectrum. I put on mass by looking at weights and he has to tinker with any plan that would work for anyone. I put on mass by looking at food, while he can't shovel enough food down his pie-hole. I like waking up and getting my cardio done first thing, he can barely wake up to pee. So, it would seem that we're not all that similar.
If we took everything at face value, it would seem we are fairly different. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes though. We both have contest preparation…
