I want to say “Obrigado” or “Thank You” for joining me in my blog. This is a glimpse into my life and my journey as I grow as a person. I look forward to getting to laugh, sweat and learn together as I share my experiences, lessons and inspirations with you. I hope you enjoy it and I hope I get to hear from you as well...you inspire me to keep doing what I do!
Here we go 2013!
These days braving your local coffee shop means answering a barrage of questions. Would you like 2%, whole milk or half and half? Yes. Whipped soymilk? Sure. One pump or two? Pump me. Eventually you may even escape with something trendy called a “skinny carmelcachino”—a cousin to coffee topped with foam and elegantly drizzled sauce.
Know Thy Enemy
Fat is indeed functional! It stores energy, transports essential vitamins, protects our organs and regulates those pesky hormones. It is necessary for milk production in nursing mothers and normal body development in children. Overconsumption of fat can also raise cholesterol levels, creating the fatty deposits in your blood vessels that are the precursor to heart attacks and death. Fat can be all nice one second, and a complete a**hole the next.
