3 Holiday Items to Stay Away From

The holidays are tough on diets. Here are 3 items to stay away from during the holidays.

1. Prime Rib - This cut of meat is one of the fattiest cuts of beef. Hence why it's so tasty. A cooked 6 ounce can have up to 720 calories! Some good alternatives are turkey, cornish game hens, ham, chicken, or fish. If your guests are serious beef eaters consider tenderloin also known as filet mignon.

2. Pecan Pie - This pie is made from butter, sugar, corn syrup, whole eggs, and chopped pecans. Or in other words sugar and fat in a dish. One slice of pecan pie can cost you around 575 calories and that's before whipped cream! If there is another choice choose pumpkin cause it contains fiber and lets be honest just as yummy during this time of the year.

3. Eggnog - This drink is made from whole milk, cream and egg yolks plus any other delightful items you might pour in it. A 8 ounce glass can cost you up to 340 calories. A great subsitutite is apple cider. Still gives you a kick and much less on the calorie content.

Imagine this, if you eat all 3 items at dinner it could cost you 1,635 calories! That's a lot of time at the gym.

Happy holidays and be kind to your waist line! Diets should never start on January 2nd.

XOXO

Red Velvet Cake w/ cream cheese frosting


What's almost as good as a Thanksgiving dinner? A Thanksgiving themed lollicake! Shown above is a red velvet with cream cheese frosting lollicake with green, brown, and pumpkin sprinkles.
This was my first attempt at making lollicakes. It was a lot harder than I had imagined. The coating is where I need more perfection. I need to figure out how to make it more smooth. But not bad for my first try at the yummy treat.
Happy holidays!

Water Bottles?

Now now. I didn't mean to post so many blogs about New Moon today. But I can't help if all these things keep coming up now can I?

So Team Jacob and Team Edward water bottles. I don't even know what to say. Except ... I might be needing a new water bottle for the gym.

Dakota Fanning


I am super excited about Twilight - New Moon that is coming on this Friday. I have my midnight showing tickets all ready thanks to the husband. I am super excited about Dakota Fanning. She is just adorable and has grown up so well compared to other actresses her age. She looks amazing in this dress. Great job Dakota and keep up the good work. I can't wait to see you in New Moon!
XOXO

Angelina & Brad


Just when I thought that Angelina Jolie couldn't get any more weird she comes up with this. Apparently Angelina and Brad are designing jewelry now. The power couple is teaming up with British jeweler Asprey and make serpent like jewelry. When Angelina was pregnant with Shiloh she was given a serpent ring to help protect mother and baby. Since then she is now viewing the snake and a kind of guardian for her family. Weird. However, all net proceeds will go to charity called Educational Partnership for Children of Conflict.

The Kardashian Sisters

Is there anything The Kardashian Sisters can't do?

Well apparently now they will be designing jewelry.


Will you buy their jewelry? The jewelry collection will be for a L.A. brand Virgin Saints and Angels. I love these girls but I am just not sure about the jewelry. Maybe I just need to see more.

So not classy dude

So I am not a huge Laker fan. With that said I like Trevor Ariza. Trevor Ariza went to the Houston Rockets this season and Ron Artest went to the LA Lakers. Now this clips shows Ariza losing his shoe and Artest throwing it in the stands. Classy Ron, classy. Who does that?

Ron get some class.

UK Racist?

So here are the posters for the popular movie Couples Retreat ...

US Version











UK Version
Now you will notice that in the UK Version of the movie poster actors Fazion Love and Kali Hawk are left out. Is this racist? According to the UK they removed the actors that were not as popular or well known in the UK. Hmmm ... does anyone else find it interesting that the 2 actors that were removed because they were not well known in the UK just happen to both be African American Actors? I dunno UK. You might be in trouble.

Bad bad Teacher

Another teacher has been arrested here in the valley for having a relationship with a student. Kerman teacher Maria Vega has been arrested for having a relationship with a 17 year old. Maria Vega is a English is a second language teacher and she also coaches the JV girls soccer team.

Now I can understand the student. Thinks teacher is hot. Not that it's correct but I see the point. But what does a 34 year old woman want with a 17 year old boy? Good grief! Is she such a loser that she can't date anyone her own age? Crazy!

Exception

Girls girls girls!

Please remember this: You are NOT the exception you are the rule.

If you break up you will not get back together ... you are not the exception.

You can not change him ... you are not the exception

If he says he is not going to call ... he is not going to call ... you are not the exception.

I know you always hear about how "this girl" who changed her boyfriend or "this girl" that broke up with her boyfriend and he came crawling back. Those are exceptions and those do not happen to everyone. If you based your heart on a exception you are bound to get hurt.

Be smart girls like I know you can be.

Relationship Mistakes

So I am normally what my husband calls "a man hater". He gets this because I enjoy music by Pink and other artists who sometimes sing hateful songs against men. But lately I have been hearing a lot of complaints from single ladies about how good men are hard to find (yes, I will admit that the area that we live in does contain many dead beats). Let me first set the record straight that yes men make many relationship mistakes and majority of men do not remember anything important in a relationship that a woman may deem important. However, with that said ... I do need to admit that it is not always the mans fault.

::cringe:: Sorry ladies but I said it. Sometimes us women make relationship mistakes that cause us to be single.

Below are common mistakes that women make. PS. I did get some help from a article that I have provided the link.

1. Thinking you will never get over him. You will. Dwelling on what could have been is not healthy. Go out and live your life. You will get over him.

2. Spying. This can qualify as many things that women do. Checking your man text messages in a "no no". When I say checking text messages I do mean incoming messages and out going messages. Reading emails in a "no no". You should never read his messages and then ask what what they mean and who they are from for every female. Stalking out at places that you know he goes is a "no no". Going to his work is a "no no". Oh and last but not least driving by his house to see if he is home is a "no no". Don't be psycho ladies.

3. Thinking your man does and should be interested in everything you do, think, or say. Yes, you should have some common things. But there has got to be something that you like that he doesn't or that he likes that you don't. That's what makes things interesting.
Key note: please do not take up a hobby because you man likes it. For instant, if you have no interest in Country music but your new hubby loves Garth Brooks DO NOT all of a sudden own every Garth Brooks song on your ipod and rock out to it in your car. It is okay if you are genuinely interested in something that your hubby likes that you never knew about. But if you have always hated country music don't all of a sudden front like you love it. Be your own person ladies. You want a man who loves you for who you are ... not who you think he wants.

4. Displacing. If you are mad because he does not put the toilet seat down then tell him you are mad because he doesn't put the toilet seat down. However, don't change it into something about how he feels about you or your relationship.

5. Expecting too much. Relationships are not like the movies. Nothing is perfect. Think about the most perfect couple you know and I am willing to bet that they have relationship issues too. Love is not like a fairly tale your mother read to you about before bed or what Disney has told you. You have good days and bad and just how you handle them that makes everything okay.

6. Stagnating. You can't just sit there and wonder why you don't have a boyfriend. No one is going to come and find you. Get yourself out there!

7. Slacking. A lot of people like to say a relationship is when 2 people come 50-50 and compromise. I believe that a truly good relationship is when 2 people both come 100-100. Relationships are not easy and if anyone tells you they are then they are wrong. Every great couple will tell you that they work hard to make their relationship work. Sitting there and just listing all the reasons why your partner sucks gets nothing accomplished.

8. Isolating. Oh ladies so many of you do this. Yes, you have fallen in love ... and then you forget about everything else. Dropping your friends when you fall in love is not healthy. Friend help define who you are and are your rock when you are down.
Side note: Ladies every wonder how you go from being in the great "honeymoon" stage and then all of a sudden he doesn't want to hang out anymore? The he breaks up with you and you don't know why? It's because you are always around! He fell in love with you for a reason. But all of a sudden all you do is hang out with him. Remember you are combining two lives not ditching yours and joining his.

9. Fantasizing. Ladies, you life with not be complete when you find a man. No man can fix all your problems. You will some day find a man who will be your partner in life. But he will not magically fix everything wrong with your life.

10. Using the silent treatment. Men are not mind readers. As much as we would like to think they know what they did wrong ... they don't. Yes, men really are that dumb. Yes, they really don't know. No, most of them really aren't lying when they say they don't know what is wrong. Just tell him what's wrong.

11. Denying. Problems do not go away. If something is wrong just say so. If you let things fester soon every little thing wil get on your nerves. Pretending you do not have a problem is even worse. If you keep pretending soon others will notice that something is wrong. You don't want to be that couple.

12. Standing along. In a healthly relationship you lean on each other. Sometime you will be his rock and sometimes he will be yours. That is what is healthy. If he constantly saving you and you are never there for him then there will be a problem. Balance ladies. Superman is a myth and even he had bad days.

13. Over analyzing. Women think way too much (and men try not to think at all). Wondering why he text instead of calling. Wondering why he only called 2 twice today instead of 3 times. Wondering why he cancelled on getting ice cream when he loves ice cream. Wondering why he picked up on the 4th ring when he always picks up on the 2nd ring. Oh my gaaawd! Most men just do things. They really don't think so you really shouldn't either.

14. Trying to reinvent the relationship wheel. YOU are NOT the exception. YOU can NOT change him. If it seems too good to be true then it probably is. Never think "well maybe I am the exception" because you are not. If you think you might be you will probably be in for a heartache.

If you have not watch "He's just not into you" or read the book ... you should.

To my single ladies ... you guys will be fine. Take a deep breath. Find yourself and when you do you will also find the man who will be your partner in life because if you don't know who you are how will someone else.

Really? Crystal Meth?

So Andre Agassi recently admitted to taking crystal meth in 1997. In his upcoming autobiography it explains how Agassi lied to tennis officials explaining that he failed a drug test because he accidently drank from a soda spiked with meth from his assistant. Who believes such a story? Were we that naive in 1997? Apparently so. However, does anyone else feel like this is a semi publicity stunt to boost sales for his upcoming autobiography? I think so.

Good luck with book sales Andre.

Target is going green ... oh and green in your pocket too!


Now I know everyone is a fan of Target. In our home we call it the $99 store cause you never leave without at least spending $99.
Monday Target announced that starting Nov 1st they will be starting a new bag program. You will receive a 5 cent discount for every reusable bag you bring to bag your items in. That is awesome! This not only saves the environment but it puts money in our pockets. Oh and lets not forget that Target saves money too. Target bags are one of the most popular bags for people to keep and use as grocery bags because they better quality.
Kudos to the Bullseye for taking the first step to going green. So remember shoppers Nov 1st start bringing your reusable bags to Target!

OnStar ... It's expensive but damn it's useful when you really need it


Now you always watch the OnStar commerical and think "yeah yeah yeah". But how many people get to say "it really works"? Well some Visalia people do!

Apparently OnStar made the Visalia Police's job just way too easy. A carjacker decided to take a new Chevy Tahoe at gunpoint at a apartment after making the people give them their wallets. Minutes later because of OnStar Visalia Police was able to track down the carjacker. OnStar disabled the car so that the carjacker could not accelerate. The police ended up catching the carjacked on foot when he fell into a pool. They arrested him soaking wet.

Okay. So must people know that I think Megan Fox is dumb as bricks. However unnamed crew members have also claimed she is "dumb as a rock". Well duh! If you weren't dumb as a rock why would you call the Michael Bay the name that made you famous "Hitler"?
Apparently now she claims that she never said that Transformer 2 was bad or called Michael Bay any names. Good grief!
Megan ... before Michael Bay found you hot washing his very expensive car you were a nobody. Now dumb ass men around the world find you hot. You have even starred in your own horror movie. You should be kissing Mr. Bay's feet. Do the world a favor and keep that mouth of yours shut and just smile. Apparently people think you are pretty.

Terry Moran is a JACKASS

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090915/ap_on_en_tv/us_tv_obama_tweet

So during a off the record interview President Obama called Kanye West a jackass for stealing Taylor Swift's spotlight. This happened before the official interview between CNBC's John Harwood and the President. The President is asked whether his daughters were annoyed by Kanye stealing Taylor's spotlight. The President says that it was inappropriate and that Taylor seems like a perfectly nice person. Then the President is asked why Kanye did it. The reply, "he's a jackass." Now this draws lots of laughter. Of course the President catches himself and says "come on guys. Give the President a break I've got a lot on my plate right now." However, a former White House correspondent Terry Moran decided it would be oh so clever and log onto his Twitter and tweet about it. Now the tweet was later deleted about an hour after but we all know how fast a tweet can go. (Rob Pattinson hasn't seen peace in a year)

Is Kanye a jackass? Yes
Did Taylor get her moment ruined? Yes
Should the President have the right to his own opinion? I think so.
Is Terry Moran is a jackass? Yesssssssss

Wells Fargo fires Exec

Hahahahahaha. Okay okay here's the story. So Wells Fargo fired a senior vice president after investigating that she held lavish parties at a foreclosed beachfront Malibu house owned by the bank. Cheronda Guyton must be part of the dumbest people club. Why on earth would you think that using a company owned home for your own personal use ever be acceptable? Well Cheronda is paying the price now. I wonder who will hire her now? "Why did you leave Wells Fargo?" "I was let go for violating a company policy." "Which policy was it" "Oh no biggie I just used a foreclosed home to throw ROCKIN parties. You know the ones where guest arrive in a yacht."
Kudos to Wells Fargo for taking action. The People need to know that the system is not being taken advantage of and that people who take advantage of others will get punished.
Good job Wells Fargo.

10 Must Have Foods

The top 10:

1. Green leafy vegetables
Eat them raw, throw them into a broth, add them to juices. Their chlorophyll helps swab out environmental toxins (heavy metals, pesticides) and protects the liver.

2. Lemons
You need to keep the fluids flowing to wash out the body and fresh lemonade is ideal. Its vitamin C, considered the detox vitamin, helps convert toxins into a water-soluble form that's easily flushed away.

3. Watercress
Put a handful into salads, soups, and sandwiches. The peppery little green leaves have a diuretic effect that helps move things through your system. And cress is rich in minerals too.

4. Garlic
Add it to everything -- salads, sauces, spreads. In addition to the bulb's cardio benefits, it activates liver enzymes that help filter out junk.

5. Green tea
This antioxidant-rich brew is one of the healthiest ways to get more fluids into your system. Bonus: It contains catechins, which speed up liver activity.

6. Broccoli sprouts
Get 'em at your health-food store. They pack 20 to 50 times more cancer-fighting, enzyme-stimulating activity into each bite than the grown-up vegetable.

7. Sesame seeds
They're credited with protecting liver cells from the damaging effects of alcohol and other chemicals. For a concentrated form, try tahini, the yummy sesame seed paste that's a staple of Asian cooking.

8. Cabbage
There are two main types of detoxifying enzymes in the liver; this potent veggie helps activate both of them. Coleslaw, anyone?

9. Psyllium
A plant that's rich in soluble fiber, like oat bran, but more versatile. It mops up toxins (cholesterol too) and helps clear them out. Stir powdered psyllium into juice to help cleanse your colon, or have psyllium-fortified Bran Buds for breakfast.

10. Fruits, fruits, fruits (easy on these if you're low carbing)
They're full of almost all the good things above: vitamin C, fiber, nutritious fluids, and all kinds of antioxidants. Besides, nothing tastes better than a ripe mango, fresh berries, or a perfect pear.

This list was from Fitness with Vanessa. It sounds easy and do-able but lets see.

Hair Matters


So before reading this article I never knew hair mattered so much.
Yes, Michelle straightens her hair but I never knew all the issues that came with it. The straight, curly, extensions, wig, chemicals, hot comb, etc. I recently read that it is a big issue among famous African American women. These women are judge on how they wear their hair.
Nappturality.com calls curl relaxing methods taking the easy road and comforming to white aesthetics.
Tyra Banks recently decided to film her new season opener on her talk show with her natural hair. I never knew the issues that these women face.
Wow! Who knew so much could come from hair?
XOXO

Fitness Fitness Fitness

So I am determined to get fit! I am tired of be frumpy. Blaaaaaaaah!

I have worked out 7 time out of the last 9 days and 3 of those workouts were with a trainer. Vanessa is beyond awesome. Her workouts are intense but you feel like you have sweat a pound after each workout. Oh snap I have! So in the last 9 days I have lost 3 pounds. The goal is to keep those pounds off and lose more. I am learning that cardio is a huge keep to my success. Got to keep that heart rate up.

The other part is a clean diet. Now this part is super hard. I love to eat! I wish I was born a super picky eater like my friend Jamie (who I love). But I wasn't and food can be my enemy. Eatting at home seems to be a good way of controlling what I eat. Packing lunch is also a key. (oh and I am pretty sure packing leftover from a restuarant is a no bueno unless it's your cheat day) Snacks such as nuts can be depressing. But ... eye on the prize! On cheat days I am working on portion control. Last night at Jen's birthday dinner I only ate half my tappenyaki and save the rest (oh and I ate 2 portions of salad. Rianne wanted no salad so I ate hers). Lots of water. I have been told to eat lots of protein which is another one of my problems. Meat is not a fave for me. However, protein shakes are not so bad. Chocolate is pretty yummy. But I am only taking protein after a workout. I am still too scared to drink it any other time for fear of gaining weight. I have also learned that juice is bad. Vanessa and Kenny have also informed that orange juice is bad. Sad! Looks like H2O is the only way.

Thursday is the hair appointment. I wonder if it's too early for a makeover in that department yet.

I also want to get some organizing and decorating done. We have moved in over a year and I still feel like things are a mess. Sad. Where do women find the time to do everything?

Wish me luck!

ALL CAPS Emails leads to being fired

Is this possible? Is it correct? You be the judge.

http://tech.yahoo.com/blogs/null/148175

In New Zealand a company fired a employee for send confrontational emails. The employee was formating in a variety of red, bold, and all caps text. Other employees complained and she got fired! However she did get the last laugh by suing the company and winning $17,000 in lost wages.

Girls need to realize that they are good enough. Never settle for okay because there IS something better. I don't know where the thought of "I am not good enough" comes from. YOU ARE good enough. There is someone there that will do anything and everything for you.

Moral of the story ... don't waste your time chasing losers when you can be trying to find Mr. Right.

Content

Be content with your life. There is always someone else who is worse off. Each person needs to be positive. Being positive will keep you happy. Thinking about negative things will get you no where.

If you don't like your life change it. Crying and complaining that God delt you a bad hand will get you no where. Find what you are good at and what makes you happy and do it. Don't be afraid of trying new things. People who put themselves out there are people who are living.
You can't go back and change things. But you can learn from your mistakes and do better.

Moral of the story: Be happy cause you only have one life to live.

Friends

I have come to realized that many people have forgotten how important friends are. Sometimes popularity or money blind you. But you should never forget your true friends. True friends are ones that are on your side no matter what. They back you up no matter what even if them have to tell you privately that you were wrong. But a true friend will also tell you how it is. No lies.

Sometimes you meet new people. Some new people well become part of your inner circle and some won't. The difference is knowing who is a true friend and who is a acquaintence. An acquaintence is someone who is only there for the good time. A true friend is always there when the situation is ugly.

Moral of the story ... know who your true friends are and treat them well. You will have many good times and times were you can hold each other up.

Switcher-roo


I am sad to hear that Rachelle Lefevre will not be playing Victoria in Eclipse. She is being replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard. Howard was in Terminator. Sad! Lefevre is gorgeous

and played a fantastic Victoria. I will miss her.

So hoooooooot


Oh Channing Tatum! Who can say no to those abs. Love it! Can't wait to see GI Joe!
XOXO

The T.O. Show

T.O. poses nude to promote his new show The T.O. Show. Dude, this guy would do anything for a buck. But I will have to say he is ripped up! The last time I saw this guy some skinny model was ripping a new one for him on The Superstars. What ever happened to that show? So T.O.'s reality show is suppose to be able him and his buddies, and publicists. I guess cameras just follow them around. Whatever ... I am not a big football fan.

XOXO

Scream 4


Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette have signed on to do Scream 4. No news if Neve Campbell will be returning as Sidney but I sure hope so. What's sad is I am not tired of these movies. Oh well.
XOXO

Brooke's Mom!


So I only know Daphne Zuniga as Brooke Davis' mom on One Tree Hill. Apparently she was a original cast member of Melrose Place back in the day. Well I guess she has signed up to do 2 episodes in the new Melrose Place. For the record, this woman looks hot for her age. Kudos to hot looking older women.
XOXO

Lame


I don't even know why I am so obsessed with this family. But anyone ways ... rumor has it that Jon is already engaged. That is crazy! Oh and by the way Jon that money if for the kids not for your whores. There would be no show without the kids. Duh! Leave him with nothing Kate!
XOXO

Still Fine


Brad Pitt is 45 years old ... and he is still fine!
XOXO

What a scum bag


Okay as annoying as Kate is Jon is digging a grave for himself. I can't believe he is dating a 22 year old. To make things worse she is the daughter of the doctor who performed Kate's tummy tuck. Ugh! Oh and what happened to the vow to not speak to the media? Apparently that does not apply to Jon. What a jerk? I wonder if that song "you're a jerk" plays as he walks? Oh well. For once ... poor Kate.
XOXO

The weigh in



I heart Frank Mir

Dana White on Brock Lesnar's speech

Channing Tatum off the market


As I glue the pieces to my heart back together I have to announce that Channing Tatum got married this weekend. Jenna Dewan is a damn lucky bitch. I guess I should think that it's cute that he married his Step up co-star.

All Grown Up

The Harry Potter kids are all grown up. As they work on the last movie it's amzing to imagine that they worked on Harry Potter for almost half their life so far. All I have to say is Emma Watson is one hot babe now.

XOXO

Rock Hard Chin

Erin Andrews is a sideline reporter for ESPN. She got hit by a foul ball the other day at a Mets/Dodger game and got rushed to the hospital. ESPN has reported that Erin is fine and report right back to work. She just suffers from a bruise chin. Damn this chick is not only hot but has a rock hard chin. Go Erin!

R-Pattinson


Why am I the only one that doesn't think Rob is dream? However, I do have to admit Rob is a good sport. The photo shoot people dumped a bucket of water on him for the picture.
