Day 2 - research

Ok, so now I am mad. Someone stole the name. Well, they did have it first. K squared meals is a Indian food company in Canada. Great, we even outsourced my name!
But I won't let that stop me. However, I am going to take any suggestions. I am in the menu planning phase. I got some great ideas. All of my breakfast items are done! I am totally excited about that.
In my research I came across something quite hysterical I thought I'd share. I was looking for recipes and came across the ALLI website. This is the fat-blocking pill that aids in weight loss. OMG! This is beyond funny. I'll let you be the judge.
The website warns that you may get:
gas with oily spotting
loose stools
more frequent stools that may be hard to control

Really? I'm not sure that leaking is the way to loose weight. In fact, I can guarantee its not.

The website also says:
The excess oil that comes out of your stool is not harmful. In fact, it is beneficial and may look like the the oil on top of you pizza.

Thanks for ruining pizza for me!

In addition, the website also says:
Eating a low-fat diet, lowers these risks.

Um, isn't that the point??????

Oh wait there is more....
pick a day to begin alli, like a weekend day so that you are close to home if you experience a treatment effect....

meaning, stay close to the are going to crap yourself.....

If you are going to a social event, hold off on taking alli.

Meaning, bring the TV in the restroom, its going to be a bumpy night! I mean really. Movies like Avatar are not an option!

But the end all, be all is this:

You may have an urgent need to go the bathroom. Until you are aware of the treatment effects, please wear dark pants and bring a change of clothes with you to work......

So, you are recommending that a pair of black corduroys will inhibit the chance of anyone know you shadoobied in your pants. A change of clothes?

Here is the moral. The only way to lose weight is to eat right and exercise. If you think a pill is going to help you loose your big butt, you may want to reconsider since you will have to wear Depends undergarments anyway under your clothes!

I thought I'd share some humor! Ill post some recipes as I am creating more. This weekend is cooking weekend!

February 1st, 2010 New Endeavors

The month of January, to paraphrase T.S. Elliot, was the cruelest month. It was a time of doubt and soul searching. I woke up at the beginning of the year excited about a clean slate. But adversity struck and I began to doubt myself.

I doubted why I became a trainer. I doubted my previous life choices and mistakes. I doubted the road I was traveling. I hit the wall. But I found a way around it.

I learned that the reason I became a trainer was because I wanted to make an impact on some one's life in a positive way. I wanted to empower someone to change their life. I realized that my self-doubt would prevent me in helping someone else empower their lives. So I got my head on straight and realized the source of the problem.

I have spent years not doing what I want to do because I was afraid of failing. Yes, that's it. I want a lot from this life, but fear has gotten in my way of taking the ultimate leap of faith and trying what I want. I realized something pretty important- I have nothing to be afraid of. I have a husband who loves me, parents who are totally awesome, and friends and clients who would more than likely jump in front of a bus for me. So why am I afraid? Just because I don't know how to fail. Or more importantly handle it. But I realized that If I do fail, that burden of pain, regret is shared among all those people. I realized that the role I sought to fill for other people, I already have and they have, if they just look for it.

So everyone tells me, Kevin (you are so handsome), and you should cook for a living. I would pay to come to your restaurant. Well. I was afraid of failing at that. No more. So here is the new situation (O-Jersey Shore). I am starting to prepare my healthy recipes in prepackaged containers for my clients. I am making three square meals a day with low calories and high flavor. I am going to take on Jenny Craig -which I know I could take her in an arm-wrestling match. But I has always wanted to do this. And the time I have spent being afraid of failure is over. It is time, to bite the bullet and give it a shot.

So starting today, I will be chronicling the evolution of K-squared meals. (it's cuter if you with the superscript number 2). Here is step one. I hope you stay tuned for the rest. I will be still be sharing some fitness tips and recipes. But it is time to shit and get off the pot.
