Does My Bum Look Big in this Superhero Suit?

Does my bum look big in this superhero suit? If there’s anything we can learn from The Incredibles’ Elastigirl in this video clip (which I think has been edited and exaggerated too!) it’s this:

  1. Everyone would check out their ‘rear view’ in a superhero suit, and
  2. Most of us probably think our problem areas are more obvious than they are πŸ™‚

It’s fine πŸ™‚ There’s a world out there to save – don’t stress about the suit! And remember, “You are Elastigirl!”:

Was Anyone’s Holiday Dinner with Relatives Worse than This?!

Anyone had any difficult relatives round for dinner lately? πŸ˜‰ Cheer up – watch the formidable Lwaxana Troi launch herself like a battleship on her poor long suffering daughter Deanna’s wedding rehearsal dinner:

Wishing a Valiant Thanksgiving to all of us who are Cooking the Dinner today!

Happy Thanksgiving to all, and especially those of us who are cooking the big dinner for our in-laws this year: valiant indeed!


Be Valiant - and Good Luck! For all those who are cooking the big dinner for their in-laws today!

I love the old pictures in this video!

Most of them look like old book illustrations and I wonder what the stories are behind them.

In any case, they’re a perfect complement to Maddy Prior’s early music style version of this old traditional hymn by John Bunyan, author of A Pilgrim’s Progress.

It takes me back to my school assemblies – a good bit of fortitude to start the day πŸ™‚

So whether you’re cooking, prepping the kids, cleaning the house or wondering where the bag in the turkey went…

It can’t be worse than this!

Be Valiant – and Good Luck!

A Diet for Elastigirl, the Incredibles’ Superhero Mom

This week’s diet, in the run up to Thanksgiving, is for that most overstretched superhero mom of all, Elastigirl from The Incredibles.

Not only does she have a busy life with her three superhero kids, but she is the only grown up voice of reason left, and then still has to suit up and save the day.

It’s a very appropriate character for the rest of us superhero moms in a holiday week πŸ™‚

And what a suit!

My Clangers Diet Worked!

It worked! My Clangers Diet really worked! I lost 3.8lbs this week:

Beginning weight: 214.8 lbs
End weight: 211 lbs

Hooray for Blue String Pudding and the Soup Dragon’s soup πŸ™‚

So, How on Earth did This work?!

I believe it was a combination of a few things:

  1. My general positive attitude due to happy memories of the Clangers being relived with my own toddler (and the older kids too!)
  2. Soup really is a pretty good diet food, filling you up without adding too many calories
  3. Blue food really does put you off eating too much, even when it tastes nice
  4. Chocolate money (or in my case chocolate buttons) are a pretty good treat to keep in the fridge for a nice little pick me up that you don’t eat too much of

The first week back on the wagon after a diet disaster usually does go quite well. However, the first week when Starbucks brings back the Gingerbread Latte also does, for me, tend to go quite badly πŸ˜‰

So kudos to the Soup Dragon for outdoing the giant Starbucks corporation. I like that πŸ™‚
