If you made it through the long weekend without much of a gain on the scale this week, congrats to YOU. I am pretty happy with my Monday weight, though I admit to weighing in on Saturday and not being quite as happy. When sodium rich foods and or hard liquor enter my body, I become a sponge…literally. Best antidote, a natural diuretic, like asparagus. Last night a big bowl of garlic, asparagus and mushrooms for my main course and lots of water, fruits and veggies filled my day. Makes for a much less frustrating Monday!
The diuretic I dread these days—coffee with caffeine—I accidentally drank a full cup of Mitch’s this morning, so that’s your warning if you are taking class or training with me today—I am sure I will be on chipmunk speed and rambling way too much. My body does not process the caffeine well these days. I need to pay better attention when I pour my coffee in the morning and stop mulit-tasking!
I will begin collecting money for the annual luncheon at the Asian Fusion Buffet in Coral Springs. This event that Ellen has carried on for 16 years will be at 1 pm on Wednesday January 25. While it started as a SilverSneakers event, back in our Quadrangle days, we are extending an invitation to ALL our students. If you take any of mine or Ellen’s classes at TFC, and would like to join us, place $10 in an envelope and PRINT your name. You are more than welcome to bring guests…include their $10 in your envelope and print their name/names on the envelope as well. The day of the event, we will take attendance and if you are not there,we can return your money to you. Easy enough. There is always a huge turnout and it’s nice to get together outside of the gym.
Once again, if you know anyone that is displaced from their SilverSneakers program because of the change in ownership at Bally, let them know about our program in Tamarac. We have more chairs and plenty of equipment.
Time to start burning off that caffeine. Make it a marvelous Monday!
