There’s No Vacation from Your Reading Assignment.

You can call this “Christmas Vacation” all you want, but it does not absolve you of responsibility for the reading assignments …

First, from the Research Department, this Dr. Oz link to a “food list” from my favorite TV chef, Alton Brown.  Alton’s program Good Eats seems to have fallen from favor with the honchos at the Food Network, but it’s entertaining and educational.  A year or two ago he aired an episode about his own journey to healthy living, and this article sums up his advice on the subject.  I wholeheartedly endorse the link as well as the program and it’s host.  Even though he’s a God-forsaken Georgia Bulldog.

Moving on from matters strictly food-related, let’s talk about attitude for a moment.  Clearly I tend toward cynicism, sarcasm and irony, but the older I get the less useful I find each of those.  Experience tells me, over and over again, that living and working with intention and actively seeking the positive in life is the far superior path.  With that in mind, I can’t recommend Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project enough.  The site, the book, etc. Take the time to read it – I don’t claim it’s a life-changer by any means, but it’s worth your time.

Yeah, I missed my weigh-in post this past Friday, but not the weigh-in itself:  259.  Nice to be out of the 260’s (again).

Thanks, as always, for reading!
