I am always amazed at how many calories even a "homemade" lean ground beef hamburger costs.

My husband and I watched it three times over the weekend. One of the things that struck me is how differently the President and his wife are about food. She helps plant a garden so homeless people can eat organic vegetables and he grabs some hamburgers for his staff. Oh, to be naturally skinny!

TashaElizabeth, Relay for Life is sponsored by the American Cancer Society. It's an all night event which mirrors a relay around a track but, first survivor's walk, then caregivers walk, etc. They have different things happening around the track....entertainment, games, people selling items, all to benefit research and programs for the ACS.

The teams pledge to raise funds before and during the event. Our team's game was a quarter toss. We collected over 150 donated cups and glasses (some quite funky) and layed them out on a table with various levels. Contestants tossed quarters into the cups (alot harder than it looked). If they got one in they could choose any cup. All coins that missed the mark were donated to the relay fundraiser. It's a lot of fun but, also very emotional....it touches everyone.

I love the way she dresses--the capris, the flats, the sweaters, the fit of her clothes. Her hair is great. Her kids look like real kids. Most of all, I admire a woman who can get along so well with her mother that she invites her to live with her.

I just watched a clip of The Brian Williams Special that will air tonight on NBC and the First Lady was talking about how she isn't doing speaking engagements now because she has to be at the kids school almost 3-4 times a week for school functions (because its the end of the school year)! I just love this lady!

I noticed when I was teaching how many of the students who were eligible for free lunches would avoid the nutrient-rich school lunch for a bag of chips and a soft drink. Invariably, they would be either obese or skinny. Grantetd, I had trouble making myself eat the school lunches. Sometimes, they were gross.

She is special --- she possesses brains and compassion. It's too bad a section of the media keep trying to turn her in to a "fashion queen". She is a great positive role model for ladies of all ages. How cool is it that some little girl some where will want to grow up to be like her?

I do too and I got registered to read the article. She is an excellent role model. I'll have to see if our food bank will accept home-grown veggies. Last summer we gave away as much as we could and still ended up tossing some out. It was amazing how much zucchini you could get from a single plant.

Also reading this article reminded me of an earlier part of my career where I worked with families living in poverty. We had a boss that wondered how people could be nearly starving when they were so overweight. There is actually a fair amount of research out there on the topic - Poverty and the Obesity Paradox. Here's one brief summary from the NIH site:

www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14684391

I'm not sure if I'm a registered user or not - but when I went to the updated link I provided earlier in this thread - I was able to read the full article. But who knows, maybe I registered in the past!

It appears that there was some extra code on the link posted earlier - try this one:

This is a fantastic story - we've gone to eating whole, less processed and organic foods in our household and it's made a huge difference in my health and my husband's. When I cleaned out the pantry of foods we not longer eat - I thought long and hard about just tossing it or donating it to the food pantry. I ultimately donated it to the food pantry - but also donated two bags of healthier fare.

We buy an extra bag of groceries each week with healthy staples and donate this to the pantry as well. This works especially well when we buy at Costco since the bulk is way too much for just two people.
