Thoughts and Prayers

To the family, friends, police family and others of the three officers killed in the line of duty in Oakland this weekend, and the fourth whose hanging on for dear life.
And those who don't know, We too encountered a fatal shooting this week. Thankfully, it came out on our side.
As if my job doesn't remind me enough, these have been other strong reminders why you should live life to the fullest. Three things you should do everday:
1. Say "I love you"
2. Laugh
3. Don't sweat the small stuff

5 lbs. Dumbell vs. The Quarter Pounder

Summertime is approaching and it's no surprise that most women must "prepare" for their summertime body. Well as you know my body role model is Jillian Michael's from biggest loser. Unfortunately I'm a far ways off. Also unfortunately, My eating is not as healthy as it should be.

Last night, after watching Biggest Loser with Ivan I get this very, VERY, odd craving for french fries. Gross I know. I could not tell you the last time I've eaten fast food, let alone french fries. So Ivan being the nice guy he is goes out at 10:00 pm and get's me french fries and a cheeseburger...oh did I forget the chocolate shake?

Moral of the story? While the greasy french fries were a foreign, unfamiliar, yet welcomed taste to my body, an hour later, it is not worth it. I felt so gross. The feeling of guilt accompanied with the feeling of nausea.

I have to wonder. What does Jillian do when she's craving something unhealthy? Or am I the only one?
