Exercise with Poodles for A New Look!

I thought this was quite hilarious and quite weird. Check out this really weird poodle exercise video for humans. This is a mesmerizing and frightening video. It's a word-for-word parody of Susan Powter's first workout video, featuring poodles and a crazy poodle-woman. Absolutely surreal. It was made by Nagi Noda for Panasonic. It was part of 10 films they made for the 2004 Athens Olympics

I knew I should have trademarked the name

The title of this movie is awfully familiar: Run Fatboy Run

I'm just saying...

School lunches and my kid

Well, we've taken another step to getting one of our kids' diet under control.

The little one started kindergarten this year and has been packing the weight on around the middle despite an active sports schedule. She would also pick at dinner, rarely eating much of a meal.

We suspected that school lunches were a factor, and our district allows us to view statements of our children's purchases (we "bank" money with the school, and the cafeteria deducts from the bank as the children buy), so my wife checked what she'd purchased.

You already know the answer - cookies, juice, etc.

We've now blocked her from purchasing anything beyond the standard meal, with one treat permitted on Friday.

And I continue to hammer it home that she ought to be bringing her lunch every day, but that is being resisted by the person that would have to make the lunch. ;-)

Open post to all opponents of Kimkins

Please...

I support your cause. Kimkins is bad, and I've written several posts about it here. I've also written posts about Kimkins on another blog I run.

But, PLEASE, quit spamming my comments with links to what has now grown to several hundred websites dedicated to this issue. There is a RIGHT WAY and a WRONG WAY to get a link below each post:

RIGHT WAY

Link to one of my posts. I have trackback/linkbacks turned on.

WRONG WAY

Leave links in comments. They are all "nofollow" by default anyway.

I'm sorry, but it makes my blog look like crap and encourage other, worse spammers to do the same.

Thanks!

Where I am with it all

I have my doctor's appointment scheduled for this week, finally. Had the blood test over the weekend. I don't know how all of this will go, but I have to do something to get the food under control.

I'm feeling pretty powerless, to be honest. This sucks.

Kimkins Follow-up

For all the folks that are dropping by for my Kimkins posts, 2Big4MySize has an update about her assets being frozen.

If you have some time to kill and want a read an saga and an investigation worthy of a Dateline episode, head over to Slamboard's Kimkins page.

Let's all work to keep this stuff in the public consciousness to protect unsuspecting dieters.

One step forward, two steps back

Good lord, I can't stay on a diet these days to save my life (literally, when you think about it).

One day on, two days off, then back on. I have a million reasons why and no excuses.

And now, I'm getting sick. The voice is gone, the throat hurts, and I feel like crap.

Ugh.
