Thintervention

Um, so first of all check this out.  This was on the car in front of me on my way into work this morning.

wtf?

Really?  You’re a vampire huh?  That’s interesting.  People are so strange.  Second, I was reminded this morning of my least favorite thing about summer ending.  When my alarm went off at 6:05 this morning, it was still pitch black outside and in my room.  I first thought that my alarm was going off at the wrong time, sadly it was not.  The sun finally started to come up during my drive, sadly it will only get worse before it starts to get better.

Since I was practically falling asleep with my eyes open at my desk yesterday, I took a rest day at the gym and worked on a little scrap booking project I’m doing.  I was so involved and distracted by it that I almost completely forgot about dinner.  Notice I said almost, haha.  There was some amazing food in the suite on Monday night, and we took home the leftovers for dinners and lunches this week.

yummy dinner

mini crab cake

fresh Jersey corn

mini burger

Probably didn’t need both the crab cake and the burger, but it sounded good at the time.  I really need to get better about my portion control, that’s going to be my goal for the month of September.  That and to cut back on the glasses of wine during the week.  There I said it here, now you all have to hold me to it!

Ok, so did any catch Jackie Warner’s new show Thintervention on Bravo last night?  I was a fan of her other show Work Out when it was on, so I wanted to see what this one was like.  It’s a lot like The Biggest Loser except without a monetary prize at the end, just a winning result of a healthier you.  I like the show in theory, but the only problem I have with it is the nutritional advice that Jackie dishes out.  I did some web searching, and it looks like the only certifications/degrees that she has are these two, International Sports Science Association (I.S.S.A.), and National Endurance and Strength Association (N.E.S.T.A.).  I found that on her website, jackiewarner.com.  While I appreciate that someone can know nutritional information without a degree in nutrition, it makes me wonder where she gets information like “adding lemon juice to water will burn an extra 75 calories a day”.  Also, she made all the participants throw out everything with over 5g of sugar per serving, and claims yogurt isn’t a healthy snack.  I don’t really see Greek yogurt doing tons of damage to my body, but is it really?  While I don’t doubt that she is a fantastic personal trainer and will kick your booty into shape, I just have to wonder where she gained all this information about food and diet and whether or not it’s true or just for the sake of entertainment.  What do you guys think? I also have a problem with the name of the show, but that’s a post for another day.

Hey guess what, it’s Wednesday already!  Have a great one!
