A: Your heart only good for so many beats, and that it...don't waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take nap.
Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A: You must grasp logistical efficiency. What does cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So steak is nothing more than efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef also good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And pork chop can give you 100% of recommended daily allowance of vegetable product.
Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: No, not at all. Wine made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made of grain. Bottom up!
Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio two to one, etc.
Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No pain...good!
Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU NOT LISTENING! Food are fried these day in vegetable oil. In fact, they permeated by it. How could getting more vegetable be bad for you?!?
Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When you exercise muscle, it get bigger. You should only be doing sit-up if you want bigger stomach.
Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy?!? HEL-LO-O!! Cocoa bean! Another vegetable! It best feel-good food around!
Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming good for your figure, explain whale to me..
Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' a shape! Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Or you can email your friend and tell her you feel scared to which she will reply:
"It's OK to be scared - we can hold hands and together look into the eyes of fear and say "Fuck Off!"

Seek and you shall find. And on this day your need for anything else will end. Simply be quiet. Some call it meditation but it can be as simple as walking alone or sitting quietly. Just BE with your Self in the stillness. Do it often. Do it daily. Stop thinking. It can change everything and you will be a different person.

The most important question you will ever ask yourself is:
Is this Who I Am?
Firstly, who you are not. You are not your past, your yesterdays. You do not need to forget your past for your past has served you, given you a gift. Yet, you have decided to let go and begin anew in each golden moment of Now.
Every decision in life can be profitable by asking this magical question. It will change long-held character traits or behaviours. You will be not who you thought you were, but who you wish to be.
Every decision you make is not a decision about what to do. It's a decision about Who You Are.
You are whoever you say you are.

n : the practice of eating in small amounts and only when hungry and of chewing one's food thoroughly
Fletcher, Horace (1849-1919), American dietitian. Fletcher was plagued by obesity and indigestion most of his life. Then in 1895 he set out to find the key to good health. After several failures he finally decided that the solution lay in chewing one's food thoroughly. He developed a set of principles which he then proceeded to propagate. The basic tenets were these: one should eat only when genuinely hungry and never when anxious, depressed, or otherwise preoccupied; one may eat any food that appeals to the appetite; one should chew each mouthful of food 32 times or, ideally, until the food liquefies; one should enjoy one's food.

This fabulous friend threw me the life buoy today when I had fallen into the river with my fucked up thoughts. After 15 minutes on the tready this morning at home I said out loud "I need to breathe" and doing so listening to a relaxation cd thought I had come back to the moment. But then it started again, round and around in circles. I didn't want to train today but thought I'd let her down so instead I let myself down. Removed myself from rpm during track 3 and waited for our weights session but this didn't give me what I needed today. After only a few sets my wonderful friend suggested we call it quits and go and have a cuppa. Thank you so much. I'm feeling much better. I'm off now for a beauty garden organic facial and exfoliating body treatment.
Au revoir et salut

But I wont do any of this because it's not my life or my journey, it's theirs. And I will let others take responsibility for themselves knowing that this assists their own growth and confidence.

Yes, I love myself!
(Right hand - the hand that feeds me)
And, I got tattooed to celebrate!!
I had the best time ever over the weekend with Katie firstly celebrating her birthday on Friday wining and dining. Saturday brought a beautiful walk followed by some deep breathing and yoga poses then tattooing us both before settling in for a relaxation massage, a couple of dvds and lots of chatting and chilling. Sunday finished off a fabulous weekend with bite me burgers and some clothes shopping before sadly I had to depart.

I am me.
In all the world, there is no one exactly like me.
There are persons who have some parts like me,
but no one adds up exactly like me.
Therefore, everything that comes out of me
is authentically mine because I alone choose it.
I own everything about me
my body including everything it does;
my mind including all its thoughts and ideas;
my eyes including the images all they behold;
my feelings whatever they may be ...
anger, joy, frustration, love, disappointment, excitement
my mouth and all the words that come out it
polite, sweet or rough,
correct or incorrect;
my voice loud or soft.
And all my actions, whether they be to others or to myself.
I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears.
I own all my triumphs and successes,
all my failures and mistakes.
Because I own all of me I can become intimately acquainted with me.
By doing so I can love me and be friendly with me in all parts.
I can then make it possible for all of me to work in my best interests.
I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me,
and other aspects that I do not know.
But as long as I am friendly and loving to myself,
I can courageously and hopefully, look for solutions to the puzzles
and for ways to find out more about me.
However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think
and feel at a given moment in time is me.
This is authentic and represents where I am in that moment in time.
When I review later how I looked and sounded, what I said and did, and how I
thought and felt, some parts may turn out to be unfitting.
I can discard that which is unfitting, and keep that which proved fitting,
And invent something new for that which I discarded.
I can see, hear, feel, think, say and do.
I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive,
and to make sense and order out of the world of people
and things outside of me.
I own me, and therefore I can engineer me.
I am me and I am ok.

After second set he tells me I look like I've been riding a horse for a week. Thanks Matt. But got my title. At hubby's 40th after everyone else had passed out my BIL and I sang this to karaoke over and over again pissed as nits thinking we had shit hot voices (as you do). It is a happy memory.
Ain't that the truth! I'm living the most amazing life. My world is absolutely magical. Everything is just as it should be. Little things just keep happening and making sense. I am so happy.It's so wonderful when you finally realise that you are a completely unique physical, emotional, and spiritual being. A perfect creation one might say. All of your answers are within you, in your heart and in your soul. You are a spiritual being having a human experience.
Trust your body, trust your feelings, trust your heart, and trust yourself.

But, what if you delve deeper and find the CAUSE of your fear and hence your weight problem? You then develop a loving relationship with your body. Treating it with the love and respect it is worthy of, feeding it foods that it feels like, engaging in pamper and relaxation sessions. You tell it it deserves to be at it's ideal weight and look how you "see" yourself in your ideal form and shape. What will it do then? You're body will listen.

When I live in my head I live with pain, confusion and fear. I become angry, negative, anxious, scared, depressed, and very tearful. I'm unable to sleep and resort to a sleeping tablet to zonk me out. My joints suffer. My knees are painful. My back aches. I am tortured and tormented by my toxic thoughts which go around and around and nowhere.
When I listen to my heart I am happy, positive, energetic, upbeat, awesome. My head then comes along to join the party and as if by magic everything falls into place. My body moves loosely and freely, my breathing is slow and controlled, my whole being is cool, calm and collected.
I had written an affirmation which I had been reading daily lots of times but I could feel resistance to it. An uneasiness I couldn't explain. I didn't believe what I had written and therefore it was never going to be real. I changed my affirmation and wrote one that really represents me and how I think and feel. I believe that if I live my life every day this way then my body will be a manifestation outwardly of what's on the inside.
I was graced with TOM's presence on Thursday, 5 weeks since he previously visited. I wondered if my hormones had wreaked havoc with my thoughts?
A lot more chilling, relaxation and self nuturing is in order. There's a whole lotta lovin' goin' on. I had a revelation that is changing my life forever!! It's something I had never THOUGHT possible before but I am now ready and willing and believe that with every sense of my being I am healing and becoming free. This is the most amazing, miraculous THOUGHT!! I want completion.

Food is a form of energy that cannot harm you or do something to you if you do not want it to. Calories are units of heat which equates to energy. Energy is either positive or negative. You choose the vibration. It's all a state of mind.

The bottom line - Dieting doesn't work - period!
Just in case anyone gets their knickers in a knot over this, I've written it for me, myself and I and to remind myself to never, ever again go on one.

- I need to watch portion sizes
- The more I eat the more exercise I have to do
- If I eat everytime I'm hungry I'll just get fatter and fatter
- I will never lose weight
- I'm fat
- I have to watch what I eat more closely
I'm dealing with these constant chants by writing down any negative thoughts that enter my mind. I simply dump them and wait until I feel calm again. This may be 5 minutes later or a day or two. I then go back and give myself a choice, without emotion. It's a mature reponse and an empowering alternative which sends MM back into the jungle to scratch his balls. I never said it was easy but it sure as hell is worth it.
