MizFit has one word: harrumph.
The first 8000 times I saw this I thoughts “eh, this too shall pass.”
Now? Im wondering if it really hath become a trend in the set-with-whom-MizFit-doesnt-run.
I dont get it.
why do exercise gurus think they can exploit our ‘oh no! we’re aging!!’ insecurities with (stupid QVC items & now) yoga for our face so that we can “soften” our wrinkles (huh?) and avoid going under the knife.
MizFit knows how she shall avoid going under the knife: she’s not gonna sign up. (or she’ll try this. Im not proud.)
On a more helpful note: a tip.
A few of you have emailed asking what to look for when you’re grocery shopping. Youve mentioned (great point!) that you’re aware you should be reading the labels now but what on EARTH are you reading for?
Let’s keep it simple to remember. look for 5 things. five fingers on your hand. (is that simple or hath I read Dr Seuss’ book Hands Hands Fingers Thumb one time too many?)
fats: more than a few grams of saturated fat per serving? PASS.
Many would say to pass if there is even one gram of transfat. sure, that’s a good thing to do but would definitely fall under Do As MizFit Sayeth And Not As She Does. Too hardcore for me.
fiber: always better to have more fiber as it helps you to feel full in addition to keeping you (FQ) regular (unFQ).
search for things (breads, cereal etc) which have 4 grams or more per serving.
serving size: how much is a serving? is the bag teenytiny and yet it contains 1345873 servings with 10 grams of sugar per? pay attention. you might still buy the item but at least you’ll be aware.
sugar: more than 10 grams per serving? even MizFit might pass on that one and she HEARTS the sugar. save it for your treat day.
ingredients: less is more.
the longer the list and the more packed with words you do not recognize (& which sound vaguely like chemicals) the less healthy it probably is for you.
Remember, it’s all about being an informed consumer when you make your choices.
Whatever those choices might be.
I think that’s the point of all those seemingly inane lists which ramble on about how foods we already know are junk food arent good for us.
Treat yourself. Indulge. Just be aware of what you’re doing, enjoy it, and get back to your regular food plan after the celebration in your mouth is finished.
Have a great Tuesday and remember there’s nothing like facial contortions to soften our wrinkles, Ladies.
