Today’s question is: Who loses weight in their wrists?
Background: About three weeks ago I started a sort of cleanse. My trainer and I decided we needed to cleanse our bodies of all the bad things (I’ve been suffering from painful knees, of all things and I am convinced it’s from the bad and processed food I so love). For a month we prepared ourselves, mentally. We started May 1st, eating only things that grow in the ground. Nothing processed and no flours (I already eat gluten free). No sugar and no wine. No dairy, and I am a HUGE cheese lover.
Today is day 21. Day 21 usually means you should be broken of all habits, yeah for that!
Anyway, my knees are starting to feel a bit better. I think I can now get up the stairs without them completely hurting. I’ve managed to lose a couple of pounds too. The peculiar thing is, I’ve lost weight namely, in my wrists. I’m not a big person to begin with and I wouldn’t have considered my wrists big. However, I put my watch on the other day and it seems to no longer stay in place, it fits more like a loose bracelet.
The thing is my wrist is about the last place I’d have hoped to drop a few inches. Why couldn’t it have been my muffin tops on my hips? I mean seriously, who notices a wrist? Muffin tops? totally noticeable, wrists? not so much.
I guess I can claim to have skinny wrists but I can’t say I’m overly proud of them!
Today’s question is: Why don’t people teach their kids to chew with their mouths closed?
Background: This is a pet peeve of mine. This is also something that has stumped me for quite some time. I simply do not understand why people don’t encourage their children to chew with their mouths closed. Have you ever gone to a business dinner or on a date and have the person next to you 1. talk with his/her mouth full of food? 2. Chew with his/her mouth open? or 3. Chomp so loudly and open that you can actually see what is in their mouth? They are all distracting, all impolite, and very hard habits to break as an adult.
When we have other children over at the house I often have to say to them during our meals to please chew with their mouths closed and please do not speak with a full mouth of food.
Why don’t people teach their children this? Can’t they picture them on dates or at business dinners like I can?
Do your kids a favor, encourage them to be conscience of their eating habits, it can’t hurt.
Today’s question is: Why do we, sometimes, not listen to messages?
Background: Last night I was checking in in facebook and one of my friends posted a video called “Dear 16-year-old me“. Here it is:
I will most definitely share it with my children and other friends but it brought me to today’s question. Why don’t we listen? Even when I was listening to it I knew that while some kids will definitely hear the message and be very careful there will be plenty that will simply say “it will never happen to me” and disregard the whole thing. Why is our human nature like that sometimes? Why are we some of us prone to simply not listen to the message?
