Music: Beatles - Black Bird Song
Too much fun last night!!! If you are in the NY/NJ area, you MUST see a band called "The Nerds" We saw them at Mulcahy's last night (www.mulcahys.com) & as usual, they were fabulous. They put so much passion into their music and can play anything from Eminem to Barry white to Gershwin and make it all flow together. Simply amazing. And they combine songs like ABBA's Dancing Queen w/ the Door's LA Lady b/c they have very similar back beats or something like that. I don't know much about music but my husband does and he thinks they're nifty. :-D We even got in before the $10 cover charge kicked in! But I'd pay to see them anyway....plus they wear Bermuda shorts, plaid & thick glasses. Who doesn't dig people confident enough about themselves to dress however they want! Go Nerds!!!!
Back to food....so, I had 2 krispey kreme donuts micro-waved for 10 seconds this morning. Perhaps this should be titled "What not to eat in the morning..." Delicious but I got a horrible tummy ache right afterwards....."you should know better Natalie...." Just b/c I'm out of my morning lemon doesn't mean I should go crazy.....If you are going to eat a donut though, the only way to eat it is slightly warm.....mmmmm......avoids......
In case you're new, every A & AB needs to have a cup of warm water with 1/2 of a lemon squeezed/reemed into it. A little bitter at first but you get used to it. The effects are great. It was one of the first things I did before even really changing much about how I eat & with all those avoids in me, I was in the bathroom within 5 minutes for the first 2 mornings. Pretty amazing laxative & all natural. & I hate the taste of metamuscil. Now that I'm on the diet, it doesn't work as fast but on days off when I'm just chilling, it works w/in 1/2 an hour - at work, it seems to work late in the afternoon for some reason. Maybe I'm just too busy w/ the kids to really be relaxed enough for that. Perhaps your wondering why I go on about this but I never realized how clogged I was & how much it effected my mood until I did this. It's a hard habit to get into but if most people can make themselves a cup of coffee in the morning, I'm sure you can microwave a mug of water for 60 seconds and squeeze a lemon into it. Chug it down (if you can :-)) & out the door to work!!!!
I'm going to start putting this at the end of each blog for the new people:
