WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER GO ON A DIET

Yep – you read that title correctly. Want to lose weight for good? Then don’t go on a diet.

Why?

I consider the word “diet” to be a four letter word – one of those bad words that people get uncomfortable when they hear it.

Nobody likes going on a diet. I mean honestly, when your doctor tells you that you’re overweight and need to shed some pounds, odds are you don’t run gleefully out of his or her office yelling, “Woo Hoo”! – I get to eat more kale!” Right?

A FATHER, A DAUGHTER, AND ONE SPECIAL CHRISTMAS TREE (scroll down)

Each year as I’m driving around during the holidays, my memories of my father come flooding back to me each time a car passes me carrying a freshly cut Christmas tree on the roof or in the bed of a truck.

As a grown up, I have celebrated Christmas each year with an artificial tree, beautifully decorated, mind you, with ornaments that reflected our “horsie” lifestyle of many years. Rearing horses, spotted horses, jumping horses. Not your typical suburban Christmas tree – yet, one that reflected our lifestyle on 5 acres in Parker, Colorado with a family of my own.

We’re all familiar with the Oscars; that prestigious event that rewards great acting, writing and directing of the best of films from the big screen. With lots of pomp and circumstance, the Oscars return once a year and the celebrities, whether they’re for an award or not, compete as much in their selection of exotic attire as they do in their lengthy thank you speeches.
