Can’t wait to eat.. forget the photos…

Standard

Every time we put our meals on the table and sit down to eat, it’s a matter of let’s get into it and not worry about anything else..

I know we should be photographing our meals to show you what we eat to stay trim taught and terrifically healthy but our food is so yummy we don’t have time to take pics.. Sorry..

I will make a concerted effort for the next few days and take some pics and add to this blog so you can see we only eat normal food and it keeps us thin and healthy..I am so glad I will never have to worry myself about dieting again and getting grumpy and stuffing myself with chemicals and expensive rubbish foods from tins and packets…  The exercise is minimal but excellent and it makes your weightloss even faster…

I work in areas where there is the Flu type ‘A’ and it’s rampant amongst the residents and staff but I just don’t get sick.. Blessing… I have to say, this is the healthiest I have been in all my years on this earth.. and I feel great..

Photos to come…

Fresh versus frozen muck…..

Standard

Saw a program about someone who decided it was a good idea to cook food, freeze it for weeks, defrost it,reheat it and then serve it up to her family.. I’m gagging as I write…

This is a disgusting thing to do to food… Food which has been cooked and reheated is waste, leftovers.. garbage..So why would anyone think this is a good idea???? Do they think this is good food to serve to their families???

I think it is just being damned lazy and nothing more… or less….

Food is fragile and should be eaten fresh. always..  To cook it kills off most of the vitamins and minerals if not all of them.. But to cook it twice and make people eat is is horrible…

I have a small orange tree in my backyard and it has a few gorgeous fresh oranges just ripening up…

Now, if I took them and popped them into a pot of boiling water and cooked them, how much nutrition do you think would be left??  None.  Zich.  Zip. 

How good do you think these ripening strawberries would be if boiled??

Image

The only positive thing I can say about this food is that it is not full of artificial additives, colourings and flavourings which we all know are really dangerous to your health.. But there is really no nutrition in it at all..  Sad… Very sad…

Food should be fresh. If cooked then it should be eaten immediately it is cooked… Oh and don’t forget, there are a lot of benefits to eating some raw foods too…. A lot of fruits and vegetables taste better eaten raw…

Image

This is my little Washington Navel Orange tree after I have eaten all the oranges… Yummy…

I’ve also noticed we don’t eat as much food as other people now either. We get more nutrition than a lot of people because we get a good mix of fresh fruits and vegetables etc… No Processed foods… so we aren’t as hungry… More fresh means more nutrition means less food needed…

Image

This fruit is what’s left after it was purchased yesterday..We have already eaten half of it and will replenish it after tomorrow.. The grapes were in the fridge and cooling…. The nuts will take us about 2 weeks to devour…

Ever wondered about the nutritional value of jam? If jam was good for you, then do you think it could be a nutritional food source?  NO! Absolutely not.. The fruit has been boiled and boiled and preserved in cans and jars and is just sweet crap so no of course it’s not good.. Hey, we do have some jam now and then.. We don’t go without entirely.. we do enjoy a few old fashioned treats…

Image

Turkish bread drizzled with olive oil and toasted, with some tuna and fresh finely chopped salad veges… A light sprinkle of white wine vinegar for a zesty flavour and that was my lunch today.. It was really nice…

I suppose this is why we don’t get fat now… We get plenty to eat and we are never hungry….

“Marilyn’s Plan” (My book) has a great deal to do with this as well.. Lost weight, got my health back and I’m loving it…

So if you think doing disgusting things to food and giving it to humans or animals to eat is a good idea, maybe you should get my little book and learn something… Please stop killing food…..

Good for you!

Standard

I am constantly surprised at the number of people from Queensland who buy my book as opposed to any other state in Australia. I know it’s the “Sunshine State” but we are also in the throws of a gorgeous summer here in Adelaide as well. And we are at the arse end of the country hehehehehe  Way, way down under…

There are thousands of people who now have the secret to successful weight loss using My Plan. How cool is that? 
Half full fruit bowl!

I don’t advertise much although I am on two very large websites which have thousands of followers and word of mouth seems to do the trick. Advertising is a tricky and dare I say a very subtle way of making you believe some fantastic claims and promises??

 

It doesn’t take a Rhodes scholar to work out what they do to convince you to buy their stuff but how often do people do it?  Every time the warm weather comes… Ugh! 

This is just a quick blog today as I’m waiting for the phone to ring with a job for me.  I could do some more writing on the free ebook I’m working on but if I begin, I need to keep going and not stop so I’m just waiting until the work goes quiet and that won’t be long..

I hope everyone who is reading this is having a really nice day and achieving peace and happiness in their lives.  Remember too, be kind to yourself and don’t stress. It’s not worth it. If you’re in a bad situation, it won’t last forever. Things have a way of turning themselves around for the better. Remember the old adage… All good things come to those who wait.

It might help to work on it a little but don’t push it. You could push in the wrong direction and completely stuff it up..

Hugs to all

I’ve discovered the secret to weightloss

Standard

I really have..  I’m the same as you. I struggled with the weight for so many years and everything I did, didn’t work.. If it did work at all it was a long and arduous process and didn’t last more than a week. Pooh!  The reason I say I discovered the secret to it is, I know how hard it is to lose weight and what you have to go through but you and I did it all wrong. We had to work so hard at it. We had to eat/drink awful stuff and do things we weren’t used to or didn’t like. Everyone is coming up with dumb things to convince you they have the solution but to be totally and brutally honest with you… weight loss is about food and exercise..

Don’t let it scare you though and don’t let it put you off trying My Plan.  I found the easiest and most normal/natural way to do it. We are constantly told we have to exercise for hours on end and limit our food intake, or drink awful drinks, no fresh foods…. and it goes on and on.. Don’t fall for it..  I found out you can eat foods you want to eat and the exercise is minimal.  Your body will thank you for it.. Don’t over do it though… There is no need to..

I had a gorgeous lady ringing me and on one occasion she told me she had to contact the cover of the book because she had read it so many times the cover was getting a little frayed.. Bless her.  The excitement in her voice each time she rang made me so happy for her.. Now I’m waiting for her to call again to see how she is going… I like to keep in touch..

So, don’t knock yourself out. Don’t go to bed hungry, don’t exercise to the max. And stop blowing your hard earned money on fad diets and stuff….

I love food and I don’t go without anything.. Maintenance is easy too. Just eat as per usual…

When you read how easy and simple this is and how you are going to be normal, you will laugh out loud too, just like I did..

You can change your life for $5.00  That’s what the ebook costs.  That’s it.. Five dollars!

A life of food and knowledge to lose and or maintain your weight. I’ve got kids on it too.. They love it and eat really well.  In fact they eat more food now than they used to…

Adelaide Credit Union Christmas Pageant

Standard

Have you ever seen it or taken your children to see it?
This Pageant is the biggest in the southern Hemisphere and it’s fabulous! and we have it here in little old Adelaide..

I’ve seen many a pageant but nothing like this one..
The colour, the floats, the costumes over 250 clowns… Dancers from dance schools, Pipe bands, Brass bands.. my favourite is the South Australian Police band.. Excellent.

They even had a ‘Bollywood’ float and it was terrific. Then the two horses ‘Nipper’ and ‘Nimble’ the two pageant horses with very lucky little girls riding on them dressed as fairies. Something every little girl would give her eye teeth to do..
The keystone cops run around a tiny yellow car and joke around… ‘Nellie’ the elephant which has been in this pageant since 1950 and it still rattles and rolls along. The giant worm, huge Christmas tree, octopus garden, ‘Nasty Neville’ the Pirate, ‘Peter Pan’ The music the atmosphere, it’s a wonderful beginning to our summer and Christmas.
The mechanics in the floats are very good indeed and never once did I ever witness a float breaking down although a year or so ago, Santa fell off the sleigh due to over heating… (poor bugga, he wears a satin outfit which doesn’t breath and it was stinking hot that day) He soon got back on his float and continued the parade, not wanting to disappoint the kids.. Robot Christmas, Aussie cricket team, A Indigenous float (lovely and well presented).
Mother Goose, Grandpa’s Christmas workshop, Elves, pixies, gnomes, and fairies. Stardust Castle,The Cupcake Christmas designed by a school. Jazz in the Park with a miniature Elder park rotunda, The Candy Carnival… I could go on and on but you have to see it to believe it.. 3 wise Men riding camels and the Nativity scene float.

Last but not least is the biggest float of all and the most important, carrying the one character every child is waiting to see. Father Christmas.. He rides in a gorgeous float with an enormous sleigh pulled by all the reindeer on a huge float covered in ice and snow, with beautifully wrapped presents in a huge bag in the back of the sleigh. He gets off the sleigh and is welcomed by the Pageant queen and in to the ‘Magic Cave’ they go with thousands of kids and adults squeezing in as close as they can to get a glimpse of him.. This year is the 80th anniversary of the Christmas Pageant.

This brought back a lot of memories of taking my son to see it and then my grand daughter..I would get up at 4 o’clock in the morning and get my pack ready.. Blanket, 2 chairs, coffee, food, sunscreen, book, and numerous other bits and pieces and catch a taxi into the city and get a seat. I would be there by 4.30 in the morning and sit with all the other people and wait for everyone else to turn up. Blankets spread out for the kids, coloured chalk to draw on the road while they waited and a lot of other things the kids needed. I would have the best seat and it was great to see their faces. I always made sure any other kids had a spot on the blanket with their parents standing at the back.. Oh what fun..

So if you didn’t take your kids to this amazing event, they’ve missed something they might not ever see again. It used to be the ‘John Martin’s’ Christmas Pageant, then they didn’t want to fork out for it anymore so the Credit Union took it over. How long do you think this company will keep it up? It would be a crying shame to lose this as it’s part of Adelaide’s History and I hope and pray it continues. I don’t have any photos because I’m sitting here in my loungeroom watching it. Dropped Grand daughter off at her dance studio for dance class and had to take the long way round due to the traffic chaos around the city for this pageant.

Her dance studio was so close to the Pageant and there was no room to drive anywhere with road closures everywhere but I took my time and went really slowly.. Now it starts… The decos, the cooking,, the pageantry of Christmas and making it special for all the kids who come here.. oohh I can’t wait..
Hope you one day got to see this wonderful event with your kids..

After the sh.. hit the fan…

Standard

After yesterdays fiasco at the Orthodontist and little girl complaining her braces were falling off I called them this morning to tell them I want the braces removed and my money refunded.

The Orthodontist got on the phone and was most apologetic, begged us to come in and get them fixed and so on…
Ok so 515 this evening we went in again. He was so apologetic I wanted to slap him to shut him up.. He went on and on about it.
He did however fix the braces and we decided to see only him in future. He did claim he was the one who put the braces on and the assistant only put the wires on. I did go into the room and saw for myself, the other young girl putting the braces on so he did tell a whopper there..
As far as the account goes… he made up all these excuses for the lack of a reducing bill after all the money I paid but I also decided, when I can see all the money Is paid… He gets no more. I do keep accounts, photocopies and such to make sure there are no discrepancies… $6,500 minus $1,653 = $4847. Sound right to you??? He still tells me I owe him just a couple of dollars under the $6,000 mark… Gee what a weirdo! No more money is he getting out of me until he learns to count…and count correctly…
So little girl is home, with a very sore mouth albeit some of my gum remedy… homemade too… effective to say the least. Poor kid came out at 1130 last night due to the pain and discomfort. My remedy fixed it and she slept all through the night..
Well, that’s it for me for now…

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…
