Is There a Patch To Stay Vegetarian?



OMG! I have been vegetarian a few times in my life, and usually it is pretty easy. Last May I started again and it was okay, then slowly at the end of summer I started having the occasional steak, and then in late October due to being out of work and honestly not having the money for meat, I became vegetarian again.

I have been reading books like The Kind Diet, and magazines and am trying my best to follow a healthy diet.

I have lost 18 lbs-wow I didn't even know I was 18 lbs overweight!-I feel better, I am happier, I have more energy and all together for me, this has been a great choice.

Today I was down in L.A. on Wilshire by E! and there was a burger truck and it smelled sooooooooooooooooooooooo good. I walked by it a couple times, just to get a whiff of the smell. Flashbacks of the show Friends and Chandler trying to quit came into my head, or remember in Sex & The City when Carrie ended her date early to have a quick drag? This is how I feel.
I kissed a guy who had eaten a steak and I swear that even though he had brushed his teeth and had alcoholic beverages, I could still taste it.

The way I see it, smoking is bad, meat is bad...they are both hard to get over, so I wonder when the hamburger patch will get invented.

As well, as the torture of smelling a grill outside, or a steak being cooked, walking past a burger joint, I keep getting coupons from all my favorite steak places around Los Angeles, it is like they know and are doing it on purpose!

I am just sayin' this is harder than it should be-all the be healthy, thin and gorgeous!

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

I Love Flying--It's My Only Quiet Time

Drawing by me, Stephanie Olivieri may not be used without permission. THANKS
I have several trips coming up this spring and while I don't like the idea of winter weather while flying I do love flying and here is why.  1. No one can reach me while I'm on a plane so I get that alone time I so desperately need.  2. I get to do nothing and it's okay. It's okay that I'm not at the gym or doing squats at my house, it's okay that I'm not working on anything-I'm on a plane so yay, it's okay to do nothing.  3. It's soothing to my soul to be up in the clouds.  4. You can eat, drink, sleep, and watch TV/movies while getting to your destination.  5. I love to meet other people so while I'm not that annoying chatty seatmate, I do enjoy meeting others. 

AIRPORTS. I love them. I love everything about them. 
I know I'm strange, but I implore you to enjoy your next flight. Think about the fact that you are just there to relax and get to your next city, …

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…
