My Workout plan
This week, we are going to focus on a different part of the body each day for a all around workout.

One day, focus on stretching exercises such as yoga, one day on upper body, one day on lower body, one day on core, and one day cardio and one day do circuit training.

6 days...6 different types of movement! 7 day my choice

1st day Cardio 2nd day CARDIO AND STRENGTH

Chocolate facts

Chocolate is derived from cocoa beans. Bean is a vegetable.
Sugar is derived from either sugar CANE or sugar BEETS.
Both are plants, which places them in the vegetable category.
Thus, chocolate is a vegetable.

To go one step further, chocolate candy bars also contain milk,
which is dairy. So candy bars are a health food.

Chocolate-covered raisins, cherries, orange slices & strawberries
all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

Another important thing is to put "eat chocolate" at the top of
your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get
one thing done.

Before I forget, a nice box of chocolates can provide your total
daily intake of calories in one place. Now, isn't that handy?

A special reminder: "Stressed" spelled backward is "desserts"!

The Most Grief

A dietitian was once addressing a large audience in Chicago.
"The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed
most of us sitting here, years ago.

Red meat is awful. Soft drinks erode your stomach lining.
Chinese food is loaded with MSG. Vegetables can be disastrous,
and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs
in our drinking water.

But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we
all have, or will, eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it
is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after
eating it?"

A 75-year-old man in the front row stood up and said, "Wedding

Duck, Duck, Duck???

My story starts off with my ex-husband going duck hunting. First time ever. He came home with one duck and I was given the directions on how to clean it by our elderly neighbour. Well you are supposed to boil a pot of water and leave the duck in the water just long enough for the feathers to come off nicely. Hmmmm I placed it in the water and meanwhile the phone rang. It was my girlfriend and I left the kitchen and went into the living-room to chat. Well one hour later, I hung up the phone and that is when I smelled this awful odour coming from the kitchen. My duck!!! Yes, I dipped it in the water alright, only I cooked the darn thing with its feathers, guts and all. I removed it from the pot and it stood on its feet on my counter with its beak twisted sideways and looking like something out of this world. Was this my duck I was going to be so proud of? My very first duck! Oh my goodness you had to be there to see it. I cried and laughed at the same time. Mind you my ex did not think it was so fun

    Your still here , Your still working, as long as i can log on and see

    your blog things will be great for you.. I know when I slack off

    I do not blog nearly as much and that is a tell tale sign.

    I for sure agree if he kills it he needs to clean and gut it at

    least. You may cook it ..

    However , I know I pawn a ton off on my sweet wife so

    I know where you are in that manner as well. emoticon

    Cute story, but if your ex enjoys hunting, he should clean his own duck--and deer, and rabbits, and fish for that matter--that's part of the deal.
    Sorry about your wallet, how frustrating!
