Winter food…..The stuff we love to eat….

Standard

It’s been really cold here in Adelaide and so we’ve been cooking a lot of stuff to warm our bodies and give ourselves energy… and eating highly nutritious foods for health too.

Dieting?  No.. We don’t need to because all the food we eat keeps us healthy and trim.. You can do it too. marilynsplanforweightloss.com.au

Here is a few pics of the meals we have been chomping down on the last few weeks.. Don’t get a lot of time to take pics of all our meals due to our rushing to get things done and by the time I remember to take photo, I have eaten most of it…

Here we go…

IMG_0716 My super salad.. I added a little creamy dressing mixed with some white wine vinegar.. Buy the book and see why I mix it with vinegar…

IMG_0717Hubby’s creation of partially cooked pumpkin tossed in a pan with a little olive oil and with a handful of fruit and nut mix sprinkled into it at the finish cooking time.. Gorgeous…

IMG_0720Beef  hot pot.. Had mushrooms and bacon in it too.. He put too much potato on the plate… Yummy…IMG_0723I love a fresh garden salad.. With raw onion.. I ate most of it…

IMG_0725This was one big hamburger… With all the trimmings… Finger lickin’ dripping good fun…

IMG_0726Apricot Chicken..  One of my favs…. With chips of course….

IMG_0748Have to teach hubby how to make the best Pea and Ham soup… This was nice but he always adds too many peas…. It was so thick…. Tasty though.. I am wondering if he forgot the ham?????

So just looking at all this food we eat.. I can tell you it is wonderful to be able to eat the foods you want to eat, and fresh foods too. Not delivered in toxic plastic containers which cause cancers….

Get out your knives and cooking pots and pans and go for it….

Weight loss???  ‘Marilyn’s Plan..’ Keeps us healthy and fit…. and trim too….Love it…

Summer is on it’s way and we are ready for it….

After 5 years…

Standard

Sitting here at home today, it occurred to me I’ve been thin and healthy for 5 years now. Almost to the day! It’s really so exciting and every day I get a kick out of knowing I succeeded and never have to worry about becoming overweight again.

My niece tried to talk me into joining a gym and I’m considering it but I do have to be careful I don’t over do it because I just get a bit too skinny. Hubby doesn’t like that…The only reason I would go to the gym would be for the music and the company.. It is fun to dance in a room of others and really let your hair down.. Ahhh… doing it with small weights too would be fun.

Our summer is on it’s way here again and it’s the time of the year which excites me, mainly because I can dress up in pretty things knowing they fit and look good on me.. Going out to lunch is great too especially when I can eat like a field hand and not add the extra kilos! People do look surprised but, no I don’t really eat like that but I can if I want to. I eat less now than I ever did. I love this Plan of mine so much. I wished I could have discovered the way to do it 30 years ago when I could still wear a bikini…

We all have the most amazing health too. No colds or flu or other sickness because it’s just simple and yummy food.. No artificial rubbish.. Very little processed foods pass our lips. We all understand why we eat now and it makes a big difference to our food choices. Every time I think about the diets I wasted my time and money on and failed I could kick myself… I suffered through all of it and never achieved any goals because they were too strict. Too regimental and the food was awful… All precooked and packaged or frozen or just not good enough…

When I read the Advertiser last week and read about young kids dieting I was horrified.. approximately 50% of young kids are dieting… I’d like to know what the parents are doing in all this? Kids need guidance and help if they have a weight problem. They don’t have the knowledge or the skills to go it alone.. They are also suffering from malnutrition and it will have long term effects on their growth and development..

So here I go, to seek something gorgeous in my wardrobe to wear tomorrow.. Hope it’s a nice day….
Hope your day is wonderful too…

Even overweight pets can be on this Plan as well... No starving!

Kids are scary

Standard

I often wondered what the kids these days did for fun on the weekend and after school. Now I know..
Some of them get together with their friends and as their parents have warned them of stranger danger, they think they are ok..
But… Do these parents know exactly what their kids are doing?

I don’t think so.. The last few months I have been privy to a situation involving a young family, their young school age son and a group of kids who for no other reason than to cause trouble,, have made the family’s life a nightmare…Not to mention the young son..

A couple of days ago… word got out about this group of boys who were on the warpath and decided to egg the nice family’s house and beat up on their young boy. This decision was made on the sole basis that their bullying of the young boy at school was not enough to satisfy them… Is that incredibly stupid or what? As soon as the nice family found out, they called the Police and just as the group/gang showed up at their house, so did a camera crew from a well known TV station and although they were there for something else, the reporter took it upon himself to ask the kids what they were doing..It was intimidating enough for them to run away, like the blatant little cowards they are.. Then, the Police force turned up wearing flack jackets and all their accoutrements needed for a gun battle..They found out where the gang leader was and went straight to their house to speak to the parents..

Thank goodness for that.. Thank you SAPOL.. South Australian Police Force. I hope those kids got the verbal tirade from their parents they deserved.. In this day and age, I have to wonder why in the hell are kids still doing this when anti bullying campaigns are flogged into their impressionable minds at school.. They obviously don’t get it…

I would love to see these bullies get community service time to go out and scrub graffiti from walls and to spend time with the Police talking about the effects of their cowardly behaviours. The parents should also be involved in it too.. They shouldn’t get away with it just because their idiot kids got caught..

I think there is a moral to this story..
If kids are going out in groups, they should be given strict instructions for their behaviours, their whereabouts and time limitations.. They should NOT be allowed to roam the streets because it leads to trouble and once they are in it up to their eyeballs it’s awfully hard to get out of it… Trouble ruins lives and not just the victims lives but the trouble makers too.
So to all the bullied kids out there.. Don’t be scared to speak out.. Get them where it hurts.. Tell the Police, tell your parents, tell someone..

The $5 diet…

Standard

That’s all it costs to get Marilyn’s Plan for Weight Loss.
It’s the e book and there is also a hard copy of it the thing is, you can do it with the food you already have in your kitchen. There is no need to run out and buy foods you don’t like or things you are allergic to etc…

You will have your own recipes and you should be able to stick to eating the foods you want to eat.. I did include a few weeks worth of recipes to get you going and they are simple and easy to make…

What did you pay for your diet last year?? If my guess is right you would have forked out quite a lot of money.. but did it work? This one will and at a measly $5, you can’t go wrong so give it a go and get with the Plan..

The crap is back!

Standard

Portion sizes… weighing food.. measuring food… I’m so sick of seeing these stupid things on TV which are too hard to follow.They also want you to exercise to the extreme. Why???

Overweight people are at risk of a cardiac event if they over do the exercise so I promote about 6 minutes of it per day! Yep.. that’s all.
Now as for the food.. I hate to be told I have to eat specific things. Most of which I despise… I always wanted to eat the things I like which I will encourage you to do, because when you follow the Plan you will learn how to do it and take it from there and do it yourself! Anyone who tells you, you have to follow their silly diet and you’re only going to lose about one kg a week is setting you up for failure… If you need to lose 30 kg then it will take you almost a year to lose it.. Ha! How boring and regimental can you get??? It’s making you think about food too much when you obviously have more important things to think about like kids, home family, shopping, cleaning etc…

I conquered it and came up with the most brilliant weight loss Plan.. Go on.. give it a go.. Once you have this in your head.. you’re off on your way to success and it’s so easy.. I just got home from a day from hell to get a noodle take away and a cheesecake slice for my dinner and it doesn’t worry me at all.. It’s fabulous.. Go on… do it!

Even overweight pets can do it…

Summer in OZ

Standard

We had the most beautiful day today. The sun was shining and it was warm.. Oh, it was lovely..I did manage to get some sun too as I hung the washing out!
I heard we are going to have a really hot and dry summer so my mind is now on ensuring the wild birds have enough water by filling the birdbaths, Laying newspaper and bark chips down around the garden and organizing for a new rainwater tank to be installed to help with the watering of the whole garden.

I will never get tired of eating...

The thing I’m dreading is getting my summer wardrobe out and packing my winter wardrobe away! Still haven’t done it..
The one thing I know I don’t have to worry about is weight loss! Yes.. I am thin and I love it. Been this way for years now due to Marilyn’s Plan for Weight Loss..
I wrote it to be easy and if you are keen to do the same then go for it. Learn the principal of the Plan and you will have it in your head forever… never to put it on again! Manage the meals during outings and parties, know exactly what you need to do and yet be able to get enough to eat without worrying about it. No measuring or weighing or cutting a meal short… no more excuses either… “Oh, I’m on a diet and I can’t eat that” Sick of saying it? Then say it no more, just relax and go with the flow! Well, that’s it for me…. for now anyway..

Hiatus in August

Standard

I believe this has been the worst few months for so many people. I heard so much sadness and heartache from so many. Hearts have been broken, lives lost, loves lost, families lost…. It just didn’t end..
The dramatics have been slowing down. If only it will come to a halt and turn for the better for everyone.

Just of late I feel it in my bones and in the air, something is beginning. Perhaps it is the mending of those hearts and spirits and the terrible sadness and loss. I have been subjected to a lot of it myself and have begun to take on life with a new meaning. Engage and enjoy! Let loose but be cautious at the same time and don’t be too frivolous it could end up with you or me being taken advantage of again!

I believe it is a cleansing month and by the end of it, we will all be experiencing the turnaround to better times ahead.
I have taken stock of how my life is going and have made a few minor changes to make life a bit easier. Would you believe I was considering putting on weight due to the acceptance of the ‘Big is Beautiful’ theme now. Then I decided.. why should I do that? I am thin and I’m not going to put on weight for anyone or for anything. I don’t want the health problems I had when I was overweight. I am what I am and that’s it. I like myself the way I am. I am beginning to be happy again and to accept what I have. I have wonderful friends and some great family members… I support others in their goals in life and give encouragement and will continue to do so.

Have you copped anything like this? It is odd. I had a shift booked today and for the last few days I have had a bad feeling about the shift. This morning I got a phone call from my agency telling me the shift is cancelled. Ok, so no work this weekend.. AGAIN! I will take it on the chin because I believe and have for years, known there is some sort of order in our lives. If we are heading for something and we didn’t get it or it didn’t happen, we weren’t supposed to get it because it could have ended up differently. There could have been a tragedy but losing it helped us to avoid the tragedy. I might be needed at home because a friend or family member will win the big one tonight and come crashing through my door and need to be calmed!

So I get to stay home in the warm and safety of home and enjoy writing this to you. Things happen in the order they are supposed to. I believe in fate and I accept it because to try to change it would turn things around and not always for the better. We can want for things all our lives and never get them. We just might be better off without them!
Be happy with your lot in life especially if it’s not too bad and remember there is always some poor bugger out there worse off than we are.
Enjoy your day!
Oh, and with the Olympics almost at an end, has it made you want to get off your butt and lose some weight and get a little fitter? if this is so.. get onto my website http://www.marilynsplanforweightloss.com.au and do something about it. I love it because it works and it suits anyone and everyone. No age restrictions either. Even our beloved pets can be on it too! Woo Hoo!
Enjoy the weekend.
