I've been doing three things to lose weight so far:
1) Cooking and eating more healthily - this isn't too difficult as of course I leave to cook. The trouble is most serving sizes in diet cookbooks and magazines are ridiculous. I made a yummy pasta chili dish tonight and the recommended portion size was 1 cup. I can't just eat one cup of food and then push my plate away because I can't eat another bite - not realistic people!
2) Cutting down my Dr. Pepper consumption - this is hell on earth. I love Dr. Pepper. I've cooked with Dr. Pepper, heck I was once even paid for a wedding with Dr. Pepper. I'm now drinking just one can a day - and some days I just drink those cute half size cans. It sucks, but I can't argue with the results.
3) Increasing my metabolism - last time I did this by biking, and I'm sure I will do more of that when the weather gets nicer, but I had to find another easy solution.
Dance Dance Revolution!
I have an incredible sense of rhythm. I make my living as a musician. I've learned choreography for Stage Musicals. I took some dance classes at University.
I SUCK AT D.D.R.
It makes no sense. Yes, I have issues when the dance mat attached to the xbox starts twisting so that the button that is supposed to be due south suddenly relocates to the southwest, but I should be better at it than I am. It raises the metabolism and the sense of shame!
Two songs I've been dancing too - well I say dancing, it's more like angry stomping, are the following. I hope you enjoy them!
Whilst meditating in the bathroom the other week I was flicking through a copy of P.C. Gamer Monthly and I discovered the following two incredible products.
How did I not know about these??? I LOVE bacon. I don't eat it very much because of Random no. 1, but I do miss it. Now with bacon salt imagine the possibilities. It might even replace Maldon Sea Salt as a must have pantry item. And Bacon Mayo? What sandwich joys could ensue? I could create the ultimate potato salad with it.
What other products could be improved with essence of bacon? Bacon Shower Gel would definitely make getting up in the morning a lot easier. Maybe Starbucks could create the ultimate Mocha Bacon Grande Latte.
I need to find a distributor quickly - or failing that a bacon buttie.
