soda Weight Loss Wednesday   Brown Soda vs. Clear Soda

We here at WOW! Weight Loss don’t truly advocate drinking soda. There isn’t a real health benefit and water, pure fruit juice and milk are better options. Even Chai Tea is a better option and new studies show coffee actually helps with diabetes. Our society, however, is addicted to sugar in a way- including soda!

I was working with a young client recently who shared with me her challenges around anxiety and the thought patterns reminded me of how some of my Enneagram Type 6 friends have shared what they experience. I reached out to ask them what they have found beneficial to quiet the anxious thoughts which lead to the anxious feelings in the body. I was very touched by the thoughtfulness that was put into the responses and I am sure that the suggestions will be valuable to all of us regardless of our Enneagram type. (for a refresher overview of Enneagram Type 6, follow this link. Continue reading more...

So last November, I shared with you my issues with school lateness in my letter to the Late Slip Lady.  You may be happy to know that The Late Slip Lady and I haven’t seen each other in a while.  While I wish that I could say that I haven’t been late as frequently, the truth is, I’ve figured out a way to avoid her.  G-Dog, who is in junior kindergarten and Z, who is in grade one use two different entrances at school and because of their ages the entry procedures are a little different.  So with that in mind, this is how I have managed to steer clear of the Late Slip Lady…
The parents over at the kindergarten entrance work together to protect each other from the Late Slip Lady’s pursed lipped smile and the unforgiving comments from the big boss, aka THE PRINCIPAL!!!  We sneakily hold the door open as parents call from down the block or across street “Wait!  We’re coming!”  It’s an unspoken rule, before letting the door close behind you, after saying good-bye to your kindy kid, you check the surroundings for harried looking parents and children running for the door.  
After the rushed entry, we console each other when we share the guilt we feel for pulling on our five year old’s arm so hard that their feet hover above the ground as we take giant, quick steps toward the school doors.  We watch as our little ones, just shoved through the door, try to wave good-bye before being whisked away by a teacher repeating, “Hurry up!  Hurry up!” (You would think that experienced kindergarten teachers would know that begging children to hurry up impacts the speed at which they move not at all!) The scene at the Kindergarten doors is sad and perhaps unnecessarily dramatic, but it is significantly better than the scene by the school’s main doors just outside of the office.  

It is clear, after all these months of being late for school, that the Late Slip Lady perches behind the tall counter in the office to protect herself from the mob scene of parents and children lined up to get a late slip.  Let me remind you, I totally get being late.  These days, with my many young ducklings, when it takes approximately three to five minutes per child to get out the door, being late is just part of our every day.  And I know that like us, every family is fighting some battle or another in those precious minutes before the school bell.  However, regardless of my understanding of lateness, even I am puzzled about why the line up to see the Late Slip Lady has grown so much since the beginning of the year. I realize now that while she shot me disapproving looks occasionally, the Late Slip Lady and the big boss were quite lenient with my family and me.  When my kids and I scurried into the office out of breath five minutes after the bell, she sometimes just smiled and ushered us down the hall without marking us late.  It was like a free pass.  Without the unspoken grace period, we would have really been officially late every single day!
At some point, however, it was decided by the powers that be, that if students do not enter the school with their class when the bell goes, they would be marked late.  Doors are locked immediately after the bell and students and parents have to be buzzed into the school in order to go to the office to get a late slip and connect face to face with the principal who escorts the late child, with loser parents who don’t have a good relationship with time, to their class.  Eeeek!  Parents walk out of the school with their heads hung low right into the arms of all of the other late parents.
The scene inside the school and just outside the main doors is ridiculous.  Getting to school 2 minutes after the bell should not cause such stress!  What is more ridiculous, however, is how I have chosen to deal with this situation.  I’m a bit of a wimp and I, all too easily, lose my confidence when I feel that I have disappointed someone.  One time, when I signed Z into school late, I was crying so hard from the guilt of making him late again, that I actually couldn’t say good-bye!  He even tried to comfort me by saying, “Being on time, isn’t really important Mom.”  Clearly, I have taught him well!  So now, to avoid the whole dramatic scene, I kiss and hug Z by the car and send him through the main doors on his own to deal with the wrath of the Late Slip Lady and principal.  The adults in charge know that my seven year old is not responsible for getting himself to school.  It’s not his fault if he’s late.  He’s really just a casualty in this late-for-school drama.  Instead of looking at me with disgust and disappointment, the principal and Late Slip Lady probably just shake their heads with an apologetic smile.  “Z, we are so sorry about your bad luck in the mom department.  One day you will be old enough to walk yourself to school and you will have a chance to buzz about with your classmates, unpack your backpack and hear the national anthem – all the things that happen in the first ten minutes of the day that have no impact on your overall academic success.”
Listen, I’m not saying that it is not important for children to be on time and ready to learn when they are participating in the rigid system of public education.  As a teacher, I appreciate when my students arrive all at once so that I have an opportunity to greet them and help them settle into the classroom.  And I know that being on time and meeting deadlines is a life skill and certainly not a bad one to possess.  I also know, however, that I have never once woken up and announced to the children that we were going to take our sweet ass time getting to school because rules are for losers and we’re too cool for that!  
So to the Late Slip Lady & Big Boss Principal:  We’re all just doin’ the best we can with the children and life circumstances we’ve got.  I’ll support you, if you support me!  
Now parents stop reading and get your kiddos to school!

I have been obsessed with Trey Parker and Matt Stone ever since I can remember. It's not that I even watched South Park - the hit show they created. It's simply them together. I've seen them interviewed numerous times, and they are sheer genius. They think completely out of the box, and they trust each other's instincts so intensely, that their quiet confidence and creative energy is palpable when you watch them. Simply put, I would die to have dinner with them. When I opened my computer this morning and browsed Facebook, I came across Facebook friend Adam Braun's page and noticed a link he had shared. It was a link from Upworthy, a site I frequently visit. And there was a video produced by Trey and Matt. Here it is. more...

That's me...Toby and my friend RJ and we are Two Dogs on a Mission to build a Kinder Canada

Mum and The Orange Dog Foundation applied for a grant with Field Law.  You can cast your vote for our project by visiting this link then finding the Team Toby's PAWS Across Canada, and clicking to vote.

Simple! Fun! Makes a PAWsitive Difference!


Here's what mum wrote about what RJ and I are up to.....

Team Toby’s PAWS Across Canada is two dog’s PAWsitive mission to build a kinder Canada one paw, one person at a time.

Toby is the star of several bestselling books for adults and children, is travelling the world with his pet parent Charmaine teaching lessons about kindness, acceptance and respect. RJ is the face of globally renowned Freedom Flights rescuing death row dogs from shelters and bringing them to loving forever homes in partnership with international humane organizations. Their partnership will provide Canadian schools with classroom programs teaching children kindness values in a method that only the human-dog bond can communicate. These values instill the foundation needed to create a bully-free educational environment while Freedom Flights teach parents and communities the importance of responsible pet parenting uniting at risk dogs with families that have prevented the unnecessary loss of life.

Imagine a Gulfstream jet, the epitome of luxury and success uniting the discarded dogs left for death with forever families anxiously awaiting their landing at Edmonton airport.  Dogs anxious and barking while children excitedly await the moment when they may extend kindness, love and acceptance of their new loved one. Jan Folk, preeminent Edmonton entrepreneur along with the help of a local marketing company and co-operation of pilots from Global Exec Aviation launched Freedom Flights. To date they have rescued and placed 468 shelter dogs with loving forever homes along with the help of EHS.


Jan Folk, creator of Freedom Flights, with actor Kevin Costner
Charmaine Hammond identified an opportunity to teach Canadians kindness and respect through media attention and message taught by Orange Dog through the Freedom Flights. If we can get people to understand the value of life regardless of breed or age we can teach them the greater message of being kind, respectful and accepting each other. Charmaine realized this starts with children.


Humans, dogs, schools, workplaces and community groups will benefit from PAWS Across Canada. Thousands of students in Edmonton area-northern Alberta will participate in Toby’s presentations, story time with Toby, and his kindness classroom kits. His books will remain in the schools he presents at so future students will benefit as well. The student’s families will also benefit from this project as Charmaine and Toby will work with schools to  provide Toby tips for families.

The project is built on a foundation of collaboration, partnership and working together to make a difference. The dogs rescued from the Freedom Flights will benefit, as will the families who adopt them. The chosen animal shelter/adoption organization will also benefit from this project in terms of marketing support and adoption fees.

Because the Freedom Flights receive a great deal of media exposure, the animal shelter/adoption organization, and the general public will benefit as the media pours out good news stories, and, learning about dog adoption and rescue.


Thanks for helping RJ and I make a difference for other dogs!

almond 300x200 Fatty Friday, Almond Balls

We here at WOW! Weight Loss LOVE this dessert. It is sweet and has a crunchy texture. Plus, when you make them it is easy to control the portion size versus slicing a piece of cake or pie. Don’t forget the many benefits associated with almonds, too. Not only is this dessert delicious, it is actually good for you and our Vegan friends can also enjoy it.
