Standard

The other day I was watching Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. I had a couple episodes recorded. I was astonished at how stupid we Americans really are and how we must appear so to others. The basis of the show was famous British chef, Jamie Oliver, going into an elementary school in West Virginia. He chose that particular place because statistically they were rated the unhealthiest city in the US. And it was soon apparent why. The ignorance was abundant and embarrassing. Here are a couple videos.

I just couldn’t believe how rude, defensive and just plain out in denial these people were/are. I got so irritated I almost didn’t finish watching it. But, I did. And I sure hope the next episode is less annoying!!

 

It’s been a couple weeks now on the NAC and I am noticing no side effects. I do feel calmer without that sedated feeling and this month my PMDD seems MUCH better. I don’t know if it is coincidental or not, I will have to see during subsequent months.

 

I joined Sparkpeople.com and am now logging all my calories and fitness. It can be quite time consuming and annoying…but I will give it a whirl and see if it seems to make a difference. I am also attempting to eat breakfast everyday now. I never was a breakfast eater. Ever. I personally never like it because when I did eat it, I would be so much hungrier through out the day. If I don’t eat breakfast, I can go until dinner time without any thing to eat at all. But time and time again, I read and hear how important breakfast is for weight loss…so…we shall see.

 

 

I think my parents may need an intervention. I was just fine with them being republicans. I brushed it off when they would quote (shudder) Sarah Palin or bad mouth President Obama. But they are now showing troubling signs of transforming into Tea Partiers. They believe everything Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly say…they think Fox News is the end all be all of fair journalism…HONESTLY!! I am starting to see their eye balls spinning as tho under hypnosis in a cartoon. They send me the most ridiculous, flat out dishonest viral emails – which I had to stop reading some time ago. I seriously need to call A&E and get an intervention scheduled before they start dressing up as the Statue of Liberty at some gun toting Palin convention. Oh the horror.

 

That’s all I have for now. I am watching my 2 year old niece, Abby, today and she is a wild one! I hope I can last without passing out!!
