While it was a bit on the late side, and too late to impact this season, I was none-the-less saddened to hear that Miami Dolphin coach Tony Sparano was given the axe. What good is a new coach without a quarterback? Who will be the new coach? This past Sunday I managed my best of the week’s sleep through the entire second half of the game. After the first half, there was just no way I could keep watching. Mitch has always told me it’s not at all easy being a Dol-fan. I understand. There’s always next year.
Saw the cupcakes that Lesley had Liz of the Conscious Cupcake make for our dentist, (we love him) Jeffrey Kritchmer. With little teeth, toothbrushes and paste, those things looked so adorable. Great job, Liz. If you are local, you can check her out at this Sunday’s Parkland Farmer’s Market. If not you can find her on Facebook.
Lettuce and tomatoes are doing pretty well in our home garden. There is one tomato plant that actually was from last year, ended up in the compost which ended up as soil around our mango tree. When I saw what looked like a little tomato plant growing beneath the tree, I let it get strong enough to transplant and this season it is leading the tomato pack. In the lettuce garden their are 3 types growing and they all seem to be doing pretty well. I have been able to pick a variety of leaves to add to our nightly salad. In no time at all the lettuce for our nightly salads will be coming from there…and the tomatoes, too. One of my favorite things about winter in Florida.
Speaking of favorite things…twice a year I get to go totally crazy over the finale of Biggest Loser. Tonight, for the first time in many season, the guys rule. John, Antone and my boy Ramon will fight it out on the scale for the grand prize of a quarter of a million dollars and bragging rights to the title of Season 12 Biggest Loser. Any of the 3 can easily take this win. With Ramon’s youth on his side and his incredibly infectious smile, I am holding on to hope that he is the last man standing when the confetti falls tonight. For more inspiration and motivation than you can find ANYWHERE (at least regarding weight loss and personal change) tune in or set your DVR (as I am doing) for NBC, 9pm eastern time. I am not sure what time I will be watching but if you hear some screams of either joy or disappointment late tonight, they will probably be coming from me.
With just 2 more Tuesday night’s of class before the new year, expect lots of peace at the 7pmer. I am going to use the CD Jon gave me last week (of his own flute playing) and next week he should be back with us live and in person as we have one final session of stretch reduction before all the holidays and the changing of the years. Is it really that time already?
One thing I know for sure. A few years ago I made a resolution to feed more hungry people. That resolution evolved into Vegan Feast Thursday, surely an example of how when you give, you get so much more in return. We have had the opportunity to not only see Derek every single week, but form bonds with the people in his life and keep a pulse on what’s happening with them and their generation. To take all this a big step further, I will be organizing a fund-raising effort to help with a much bigger effort that our good friends Lesley and Richard have taken on. Stay tuned for more about the Soup Kitchen, and how YOU can help, after the new year.
Wishing you all a terrific Tuesday! As always, I thank you for stopping in for a little peaceandfitness weigh in.
