I am spending my days trying to find my focus again. Digging deep to find the strength to say no to fatty foods and yes to veggies and fruit. Pushing myself to get off my butt and get moving. So today I will leave you with a little humor from Getting2Goal and will be back Monday morning with my first weigh in of September!

God Bless


THE WORD

And God populated the earth with broccoli and cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow vegetable of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

And Satan created McDonald's. And McDonald's brought forth the 99-cent double-cheeseburger. And Satan said to Man, "You want fries with that?"

And Man said, "Super size them."
And Man gained pounds.

And God created the healthful yogurt, that woman might keep her figure that man found so fair.

And Satan brought forth chocolate.
And woman gained pounds.

And God said, "Try my crispy fresh salad."

And Satan brought forth ice cream.
And woman gained pounds. And God said, "I have sent your heart healthy vegetables and olive oil with which to cook them."

And Satan brought forth chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter.

And Man gained pounds and his bad cholesterol went through the roof.

And God brought forth running shoes and Man resolved to lose those extra pounds.

And Satan brought forth cable TV with remote control so Man would not have to toil to change channels between ESPN and ESPN2.

And Man gained pounds.

And God said, "You're running up the score, Devil."

And God brought forth the potato, a vegetable naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition.

And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fat fried them. And he created sour cream dip also.

And Man clutched his remote control and ate the potato chips swaddled in cholesterol.

And Satan saw and said, "It is good."

And Man went into cardiac arrest.

And God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.

And so, Satan created HMOs.

Long time no see. I'm getting caught up again. Life keeps getting in the way. You look great, and it sounds like life is keeping you busy, too. When you coming out to CA with your band? :)

Sounds like you've been keeping busy. And I agree...Satan definitely had a hand in the
99 cent menu at McDonalds!
