Freestyle 3 w/NEWS!


Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Hello!
Spark friends and family. Today was a freestyle day. Every day is a freestyle day, and I ate what I wanted to eat. I ate what I had a taste for. I ate what was in reason for me, and I feel great! If I get hungry again –then I’ll eat again.

Fruits and Vegetables
Fruits and Vegetables
Fruits and Vegetables

And if that doesn’t do the trick…I’ll eat some more…Fruits and Vegetables!

We all have to live within our means and in our means of living.
A friend of mines asked me. What’s so important about those fruits and vegetables? What’s the damn hype? What’s the damn hype? Do I need to share a list of case studies or do I need to send you back in time; to when our ancestors ate off the land?

There was no McDonalds!
There was no Taco Bell!
There was no White Castles!
There was no Burger King or Hardee’s!
There was no buffets all you can eat!
There was no pizza hut!

The very first restaurant in the world was opened in Paris in 1765.
The first restaurant in the United States was Delmonico's Restaurant, which was opened in 1827 by brothers Giovanni and Pietro Delmonico. More precisely, the brothers opened an ordinary cafe in 1827 and then, in 1830, opened the "restaurant francais" in the building next to their café.

And now we are overrun with fast food chains and restaurants.
We are also overrun with health issues and diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and cancer. And you are asking me! What’s the importance of fruits and vegetable?

Look at yourself. Look at how you are living. Look at your lifestyle. Yeah! It’s going to take a lot to change it, but it can change. You can give your body the right stuff now… You can start giving your body fruits and vegetables. I’m not asking you to ditch your meat or your treats. I’m just asking you to add in more fruits and vegetables… If the world was to go on a plant base diet –I’m sure we all will be some skinny bitches around here. Don’t mean to offend anyone if I did… I’m sorry. This is just a blog, not a smack down or a report me to sparks. This is just the truth. We will all be some skinny bitches around here if we lived a plant based diet. Genesis 1:29, but I understand it’s hard to live Genesis 1:29. Hey! It’s hard for me, but I get those fruits and vegetables in, and I’m seeing the benefit of it.

Let me take you back.
Do you remember these jeans? I mean the real deal of these jeans.
Hey! Just listen to me.
Do you remember these jeans?
Well…Look at me now. I wasn’t even going to put my fat ass into these jeans until I reached 175, but as I was hanging up some things in my closet… I saw them and I went on and put them on. And boy was the sliding in a lot better than the slide in July. A lot easier to pull up over my butt, and there are some tightness in the thighs and some pulling there too, but its okay, and I button these up too. I button these up too! And you want to ask me… What’s so important about these fruits and vegetables? I wanted to tell her to go into a corner and just be fat. You know! We kinda get bitchy when people go on and on about how that’s not working.

Sure! I don’t have a lot of scale success, but dammit… The jeans don’t lie. The jeans don’t lie… And oh yes! I do have my way with my eating, I’m not restricting –I’ve done no crime, so why must I live on bread and water. I can eat more than bread and water to lose this weight. I can have cake too…with reason on top of my lips. I can have all the fruits and vegetables I want… I don’t have to say… Oh wait! Let me count that up. I hate counting, and I’m like Aleshawalker. I got my own deal when it comes to tracking and stuff. I use sparks for the…team, blogging, vblogging, and support. I do a fitness tracker check and a weight track every now and then, so it doesn’t bother me as much.

I’ve come to an understanding that. It is what it is.
If I want to be healthy in this body I’m going to have to start eating healthier, and stop the madness of my own bull (BEEP) and get on with life.

You know. Rome wasn’t built in a day.
How on earth am I going to build a new body in a day?
No way bubby! It’s not going to happen overnight. It’s not going to happen like that. It’s not going to just take off like that. It takes time, and with time everything is measured precisely.

Here are my doings and I hope you all enjoy…

Lynn’s Freestyle on the eating…

  You can not argue with fruits and vegetables. I am working on about seven daily and I am seeing the difference on the scale.

    That is a real accomplishment, Lynn! I have some clothes that didn't fit me anymore that I'm waiting to fit into again. So I know the feeling. And you're right. And when McDonald's first opened, their typical meal was the size of a Happy Meal today. But the portions grew, and so did our wasitlines.

You're on the right track! Keep going!
