Things I'm Gonna Do This Week- June 2012

For as much as I write about dessert, you'd think I'd be morbidly obese.  From cookies and cakes and pies and ice cream, to muffins, chocolate bars, soda pop, crème brulee, and pretty much everything made by Hostess, I've spent a lot of time writing about my favorite part of dinner.

But the truth is while I do enjoy devouring some high calorie decadence once or twice a week, I've always got my gym membership and a performing schedule that requires highly unrealistic levels of energy.

In short, I don't think everyone has as many opportunities as I do to burn off an entire tray of brownies.  So, to free myself of the guilt for encouraging that kind of behavior, I'm dedicating this month's "Things I'm Gonna Do This Week" to joining "the battle of the bulge."

Over the next seven days, I'm cutting out sweets and investigating what "eating right" actually means in our society.  We all know that we should do it, but for some reason we're not!

According to the CDC, nearly 69 percent of adults in America are overweight or obese.  That, my friends, is what we call an epidemic! 

Now look, eating isn't difficult.  In fact, you can sit on a couch in front of a television and not even realize that you've consumed a whole bag of Cheetos.  But eating is also necessary.  We can't just NOT do it!  So there must be a way to enjoy food and maintain a decent level of health at the same time.

Tighten those belts, America!  "Battle of the Bulge Week" begins right now!
