Marshmellow Midsection

Yup. This about sums it up.
Seriously. I'm feeling less than positive today as I peer down at my very own marshmallow midsection. Really. It's the only description that comes close to it. Before I go any further, I must mention I may have an explosive cocktail of hormones percolating somewhere which may make me a little sensitive (not to mention resembling that of a blow fish without the poisonous spiky things...although who knows, give me some time and I may develop some of those too).

At any rate, I am feeling what most of us probably feel when we make healthier choices such as changing the diet and getting more exercise....fed up. I'm not serving as a cheerleader for health at the moment,  but I feel it necessary to post my disdain if not for just serving as a warning to others. I jiggle. My goal is not to jiggle.  That blows major goats. It does make me want to search out a bag of Doritos, but the thought of eating a bag of Doritos kinda makes me sick. At least I have that going for me.

Is it age? Is it "the change"? Is it the fact I had no time (really....no time) to exercise last week? Whatever it is, I realize it is only temporary but it still feels crappy. I certainly don't resent how I'm eating or exercising..I love it...but I don't expect to look down at my belly and see it looking up at me with a smiley face (you know what I'm talking about). Stupid pepperoni and red wine food baby...but it certainly was nice at the time.

I'm just sayin' that no matter what I eat or don't eat or no matter if I spend time in the gym, there will be days like these where no level of elasticity will help. I realize it is only a fleeting feeling, but it still makes me want to search out the lunchtime lipo clinic. Of course,.my fear would be dying under anesthetic and the news headlines would read "Health Promotion Director succumbs while getting the fat sucked out of her marshmallow midsection"....Oh the embarrassment! I wouldn't be able to show my face anywhere again. 

Whatever! Tomorrow is another day and I'll get back to the gym and eating well.  Meanwhile, I'm experimenting with cauliflower as a replacement for pizza crust and rice. Did you know that if you combine 1 cup of shredded and steamed cauliflower with 1 cup shredded cheese and one egg (mix and flatten "dough" on a baking sheet with non-stick oil and cook at 450 for 15 minutes) you can make the most amazing pizza crust or bread sticks? Did you also know that if you shred the heads of cauliflower, steam it for 6 minutes and add butter, you have the best rice replacement ever!

You will love these cauliflower bread sticks and pizza crust....why should you make the switch from bread? Stay tuned.
Want to know more? Stay tuned.......(and by the way, thanks for reading....I really appreciate your time and comments).
