godiz - Since I am working on the inside... It's now time for the outside. Today I worked out to this fitnessblender video. I did not do the Active Rest between the sets, cause I'm not trying to loose any weight. Also for starters I did half Reps (6r x 2s). For any other good home videos please send me a link. Ok gotta go my butt is burning.... Aaaahhh!!!!
Question: Is there any way to workout the red circled parts? To make it look a bit wider/rounder?
Or is there NO hope for skinny people? Let me know if you know.
(As you can see - clearly this is NOT me in the pix! It's Annalynne Mccord.
Just using her as an example)
Read Psalm 31:21; 117:2; see also 2 Samuel 2:6; Nehemiah 9:17;2 Peter 1:5-7.

Natural & Easy Tips
Peppermint for Headaches and Tummy Trouble
Homemade peppermint tea soothes and calms headaches and digestive issues – a simple and wonderful way to alleviate some discomfort.
Simple Peppermint Tea
1 palmful organic mint leaves, roughly chopped hot water
Instructions: to make tea, dice up the leaves and place into a loose tea contraption. Pour in hot water, steep until desired strength, and sweeten with honey and add lemon if desired (see below for these two awesome illness fighting ingredients).
This also helps with digestive issues and tummy troubles, making it great for the queasy stomach. Ginger is also sometimes used for pain management, so it’s great for easy headache relief. Make this into a tea as well.
Fresh Ginger Root Tea
1 small hunk organic ginger root, peeled and finely grated hot water
Instructions: take the fresh ginger root, peel a hunk, and then finely grate into a tea brewer. Pour hot water over the grated ginger and let steep for 5 to 8 minutes. Boom! Insta-Ginger Tea! (combine with peppermint for an extra-pick-me-up).
Real Raw Honey
Raw honey is fantastic for colds as it soothes coughs, is an anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal, and helps with digestion.
The Throat Soother
2 tablespoons organic coconut oil, 2 tablespoons raw honey 1 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon
Instructions: mix with the powerhouse coconut oil (for some great lauric acid), ground cinnamon (to also help sooth the throat), and raw honey together until a paste forms. Eat the goodness throughout the day and soothe the throat!
Give Lemon a Squeeze
These yellow babies are powerful! They are great for detoxing the body, are packed with vitamin C, is great for digestion, and for fighting off colds and the flu.
Squeeze some juice and add some lemon slices to water; or make homemade lemonade sweetened with honey.
Homemade Single-Serving Lemonade
2-3 tablespoons raw honey (or more to taste) 2 organic lemon juice, freshly squeezed water to dilute lemon slices
Instructions: Whisk lemon juice and honey together until well incorporated. Dilute with water to taste and add ice cube and lemon. Sip up!
Great tips! And you can find more online. In my home when I was a sick kid, we used remedies such as the ones mentioned above.
It was playing a similar tune over and over. I wake up in the middle of the night, with melodies stuck in my head. Trying to go back to sleep again... But nope! those instruments refused to leave my mind. I Wake up this morning and i am still hearing this music in my brain!!! Ggggrrrrr!! I pick up my phone (who is next to my pillow) to see what time it is... And guess what? I notice that I have accidentally turned the radio on, "while asleep". I put the earpieces in/my ears (who are plugged into my cell) and tadá! Surprise, surprise... Classic music lol
If your house has begun to look like a minefield littered with toys, you might want to teach your dog the command "Tidy Up!"
1. Place the toy box in a designated area.
Deciding on a designated area is a big decision —you can't change the toy box location for a while.
2. Bring your dog to her box with a favorite toy, and give her the toy.
3. Snap your fingers over the box. When your dog leans her head over the box, tell her "Drop, Tidy Up" as you offer a treat (which should encourage your dog to drop the toy).
4. Repeat the drop-in-the-box step four times.
5. Repeat these sessions once or twice a day.
6. As your dog catches on, try giving her the toy farther and farther from her box (which should always be in the same area).
7. After she catches on to this step, go near the box again, but this time leave the toy on the floor and encourage your dog to pick it up.
You can increase the number of toys she picks up. Start by rewarding only a two-toy drop. Then a three-toy drop, then four.
Have fun! :-)
The Swedish bun is lighter and fluffier over the chewy and sugary American bun.
Cinnamon Bun Day was launched on October 4 in Sweden (also International Children's Day) the thought of "Cinnamon Bun Day" was that there would be a day of caring.

Here It goes: Prep Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes Yields: 40 buns
Ingredients: For the starter dough
500 ml milk (liquid or powder milk)
500g all-purpose flour, sifted
50g fresh yeast for the buns
1 ½ tablespoons ground cardamom
Pinch of salt
550g all-purpose flour, sifted
200g butter, softened
For the filling:
200g butter softened
1 vanilla bean (optional)
1 egg, lightly beaten
Pearl sugar, coarse muscovado sugar or just regular sugar to sprinkle.
(you can also replace all the sugar to muscovado if you like)
1. Scald the milk by heating it in a small pan until it almost reaches boiling point, then allow it to cool. Scalding the milk makes the finished buns softer.
2. Crumble the yeast in a clean bowl. Pour in some of the tepid milk and mix to dissolve the yeast. Add the rest of the milk and the sifted flour and stir everything together until the mixture comes off the sides of the bowl. Leave to proof overnight in the fridge.
3. Once the dough has risen, remove from the fridge and work in the rest of the ingredients. Start by adding the sugar, cardamom, salt, flour and egg to the starter dough. Knead into a smooth and supple dough. It will take about 10 minutes if you are using a stand mixer, and longer if you knead by hand - about 15-20 minutes.
4. Finally add the softened butter to the dough. This will be hard to work into the dough but it will eventually incorporate, leaving you with a smooth and glossy dough.
5. Cover with plastic wrap and place the dough back in the fridge for another 30 minutes. In the meantime make the filling by beating the butter with the sugar and the seeds of the vanilla bean.
6. Divide the dough in half. Using one half, roll into large rectangle of about 1.5 cm in thickness. Using a spatula spread half of the filling over the dough dusting with ground cinnamon as desired. Fold the rectangle into thirds lengthwise: lift a third of the dough towards the middle, then fold down the top third as well, to make a very long and thin rectangle.
7. On the short side of the dough cut about 16 to 20 strips of dough each about 2 cm thick. Take one of the strips and cut right the way through stopping at about 2 cm from the top. Pick up a strip of dough and twist the two ends in opposite directions two or three times and then coil the strip in on itself, tucking the ends underneath and sealing them in place with a dab of water. Once you have twisted all the strips, place them in paper muffin cups on a baking tray. Cover with a clean cloth and allow to rise for another 60 minutes.
8. Preheat the oven to 220°C.
9. Brush each bun with a little bit of egg and sprinkle with pearl sugar or the coarser muscovado sugar. Bake the buns in oven for approx. 8-12 minutes or until light golden in color. Allow to cool on a wire rack before eating.
Butter usually prohibits gluten to develop in the dough so by adding it after the dough has been kneaded helps the gluten process to develop better. These freeze well, all you have to do is wrap in aluminium foil or plastic bags and keep in the freezer. Reheat (microwave) in the oven at 150° C.
I've been doing pretty good this far with the sugar plus eating healthier "I don't feel as guilty"
And I will continue to do good... Maybe every now and then - a little sweet treat and some junk will slip in my mouth, but only "on special occasions" I'm considering learning how to bake healthier as well. And hey can't forget exercising.
The pics above is my own attempt of the roll's. They turned out pretty good if I may say so myself :-) maybe not the best looking lol
godiz - keep it ol'school!
