Fail To Plan… Or Plan To Fail.

Published

on

When we commit to changing our diet, we face all kinds of challenges we don’t anticipate. How can I NOT eat Grandmas fudge, and why are carbs EVERYWHERE? With yet another holiday coming up, we must find a way to not train wreck our healthy choices, but still be able to attend our family gatherings, picnics, reunions etc. Yes, the fourth of July will be fraught with potato salad, greasy burgers, and hot dogs. And we won’t even mention the brownies and the desserts. You know the one your sister-in-law brings to every function that everyone wants to eat before they have the meal. This is our reality. We often love people with food. I am simply going to ask you to love yourself a little bit more. It is actually fairly simple. You can also plan to fail and just commit to eating anything, in any amount, you want. Or you can plan your eating strategy ahead of time. Think of it as a game you must win. First step to success is bringing something you know you can binge on heartily without guilt. Perhaps it’s a vegetable tray or a fruit tray. Perhaps it is something high protein/low carb to help you feel satisfied. You have total control of what you bring. Make a plan to eat in moderation, not deprivation. If you catch yourself saying “I can’t eat those things”, you are planning to fail. Eat it, then you feel guilt, followed by shame, and then you give up. Negotiate your cheats. Simply eat a tablespoon or two of your favorite dish, not half a plate followed by seconds. Don’t drink your calories either. Plan to eat slowly so you can give your stomach a chance to catch up with your brain. This generally takes at least 20 minutes. Plan on drinking plenty of water before arriving so you don’t confuse thirst signals with hunger signals. Have a really good, solid cardio work out with some weights thrown in before the dreaded “food event”. Get your body into a fat burning stage before you ever arrive at the event. This is crucial to having that occasional binge or not-so-perfect eating day. Stay active and keep your body in a calorie burning mode. If the family starts a flag football game, join in and get moving to help keep those calories burning. If that’s not for you, take a few of the people with you on a brisk 20-minute walk. Be the person who plans their cheat days and meals and is able to stay on track to design the fit life you deserve. Plan your strategy not your failure!

Former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, Mike Tyson, and his two business partners plan to open a 40-acre marijuana ranch 60 miles southwest of Death Valley National Park. According to mirror.com Tyson Ranch will allow growers to cultivate their crop and there will also be a cultivation school to help growers get the most out of their strains.

The operating company, Tyson Holistic, will employ mainly veterans and bring much needed jobs to the city it’s in.

The Heart of the Matter - Support The Club at Collington Square!

The November 26th Baltimore Sun story about East Baltimore neighborhoods was discouraging: “Poverty Makes a Powerful Statement”. The poorest area of East Baltimore, north of Hopkins Hospital, struggles with a grim list of challenges: poverty, violence, vacant properties, liquor stores and the lowest life expectancy in the city.

But in four renovated and connected rowhomes on Mura Street, behind four colorful doors, daily miracles are happening. The Club at Collington Square is an afterschool and summer program, a consistent, loving, educational haven for 92 children in a very tough neighborhood.

Here, Club staff are teaching and building the leaders this neighborhood and this city need. The staff know that changing young lives changes everyone’s future.

Program Director Vanessa Williams has intentionally recruited and developed a staff of young leaders as teachers and assistants — almost 100 percent of whom live in the neighborhood The Club serves. These dedicated staff provide a highly structured program between the hours of 3:15 and 6:30 chock full of academics, enrichment, play and homework help, and provide a snack and hot dinner cooked by The Club Chef in the on-site Community Kitchen. The program emphasizes student voice and leadership with roles for older scholars to mentor and serve younger scholars, and an elected student council.

Strong City Baltimore assumed operations of The Club at Collington Square when Episcopal Community Services of Maryland sought a more sustainable future. Strong City believes deeply in The Club and in its incredible staff, who do heroic work every day with some of Baltimore’s most vulnerable children.

Strong City assumed operations of The Club in October with a $130,000 deficit, which we have already reduced to $65,000. Your gift today will help us keep the doors open and enable the staff to be there every day with what our scholars need most: love, nourishment, academics and enrichment. It’s easy to despair when the headlines are so discouraging.

But we know that loving and investing in Baltimore’s children is the answer. Your gift will help the Club continue to build young leaders that will change Baltimore’s future.

Click here to give! Be sure to designate your gift to “The Club at Collington Square” and consider joining The Friends of The Club with a monthly gift of $100.
