Stop Boning Around

The latest in fashion and weight management is known as boning or waist training. Participants wear specific shape wear that gives them a hourglass figure and slow but sure slims the waist. This is merely the rebirth of the corset minus the ties, hooks, and wires.  This is supposed to be safer and is said to cause less damage to the internal organs than regular corsets and traditional shape wear. Lately, shape wear has been the subject of controversy, because many wearers purchase a size too small; which creates breathing issues, blood clots, while also squeezing the internal organs. Women want to look good but no one wants to die for it! When worn correctly waist training garments are helping many women strengthen their abdominal muscles and cutting inches from their waistline. This is a product I would love to try but the $135 price tag is not worth it. I guess free sit ups and crunches it is!

This year promises to be difficult and advises the horse to lie low, and avoid any major decisions. If your wondering if this is your fate here are the birth years of the horse: 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002 and 2014.

Cooking in the dishwasher....What?

I'm always telling people to live a little and try something new. Well I think I'm going to have to take my own advise and try cooking in the dishwasher. I know you think this is crazy and it is! I've been watching TV and several shows have discussed this new cooking technique. ABC even did a special on how to cook a turkey in the dishwasher in four wash cycles. Now, I'm not even going to try that, especially when I've never even cooked a turkey in the oven. I must admit it has sparked my curiosity, so I took to FB to see what my friends thought of the idea. To my surprise someone had tried it with fish and said it was actually tasty. I know it doesn't take very much to cook fish so I've decided to try it with beef. Everyone knows beef can be very tough if not cooked correctly. I'm going to make Korean beef bulgogi, veggies, and rice. Stay tuned for the results....

Live a little...
