Hollywood 360

Since Meg is on Holidays, here's my contribution to Meg Tucker's Hollywood 360!

Brook Burke the big winner last night on Dancing with the Stars… she even made the Judges cry a little. She beat a football player on a dancing show… are we really that surprised. Rather amazing what these people do though…

Amy Winehouse is back in the hospital again with another “prescription” conflict… doesn’t Amy Winehouse know it’s not technically a prescription if you do the transaction in BEHIND the pharmacy?

Mariah Carey bought her Great Aunt a house, after she fell behind on her mortgage payments. Who knew Mariah benevolent? Bet she can’t spell it though..

Britney Spears turns 27 next Tuesday, and she wants out. Free Britney! Now that she’s medicated, she’s feeling a little strangled by her dad’s control of her career. David Archuletta, pay close attention

Catch Meg Tucker's Hollywood 360 weekday mornings on the Freeway and Meg Morning Show, Today's Best Music Energy 101.5!

Holiday Gift Ideas

Ok, you're considering Christmas Ideas... and giving a blender is a bad idea. In fact, as I learned last year, giving a GYM membership is a BAD idea too. But, there is a good way to go about it.

Personal training... it's better than the gym membership, because that has a huge hole in it. Motivation. Your spouse has talked about going to the gym, we all wish we were a little less squishy.

Here's what has worked for my bride and me. A Trainer. So happens I have a friend named Rod that does that. So does his wife Brenda. But find someone you trust. Spirit Fitness is my suggestion. I'll explain.

It's about $75 for an hour with a trainer. Typically, that gets you the complete hour plus into the gym. Now, it seems steep, and most people cannot afford to do that 3 days a week... but I go to Rod once a week. My Bride, being a mom, goes about twice a month. SO, it's really not that bad. In fact, I will cut back in the new year to about twice a month. But it's about nutrition, and motivation. Direction. that's the key.

Otherwise, you go to the gym... you start to plateau/get bored/lose motivation. that's what happens. then you gain back your weight and waste the gym membership. Going to a trainer is the best thing we ever did. And it just gets you started on the days that you need help. But, if you're rich and can afford a trainer 5 days a week, well.. enjoy it. We all wish that would be the case for us!

I came to Rod for our ABS BY MAUI idea. The main thought was to see if in 100 days I could go from 210lbs down to about 190 and lose my belly fat. I'm rather slim, but it hasn't been easy. I was a 36" pant waist when i started.. with 5 weeks to go I'm a 33, and getting close to 32" and about 195 most days.

You spend $70 on a massage that makes you feel good for a few days... why not spend $75 on a trainer that will move you through many days of feeling good?

Rod and I talked about some recipes and posting them up here... now I'm going to see if I can make that happen.

Lunges today.. still legs :)

Junk Email from my Dad

OK, this is a crappy email forward from my Dad. Since this applies to women for the "insight into man" (like there is any insight needed.. MAN is about as deep as the Alabama Gene pool), but fellas.. you will relate too, as you know this is true.

Because I'm a man
Because I'm a man, when I lock my keys in the car, I willfiddle with a coat hanger long after hypothermia has set in.
Calling AAA is not an option. I will win.

Because I'm a man , when the car isn't running very well,
I will pop the hood and stare at the engine as if I know what
I'm looking at. If another man shows up, one of us will say
to the other, 'I used to be able to fix these things, but now
with all these computers and everything, I wouldn't know
where to start.' We will then drink a couple of beers and
break wind, as a form of holy communion.

Because I'm a man, when I catch a cold, I need someone
to bring me soup and take care of me while I lie in bed and
moan. You're a woman. You never get as sick as I do, so
for you, this is no problem.

Because I'm a man, I can be relied upon to purchase basic
groceries at the store, like beer, milk or bread. I cannot be
expected to find exotic items like 'cumin' or 'tofu.' For all I
know, these are the same thing.

Because I'm a man, when one of our appliances stops
working, I will insist on taking it apart, despite evidence that
this will just cost me twice as much once the repair person
gets here and has to put it back together.

Because I'm a man, I must hold the television remote
control in my hand while I watch TV. If the thing has been
misplaced, I may miss a whole show looking for it.....though
one time I was able to survive by holding a calculator.....

Because I'm a man, there is no need to ask me what I'm
thinking about. The true answer is always either sex, cars,
sex, sports or sex. I have to make up something else when
you ask, so don't ask.

Because I'm a man, I do not want to visit your mother, or
have your mother come visit us, or talk to her when she
calls, or think about her any more than I have to. Whatever
you got her for Mother's Day is okay; I don't need to see it.
And don't forget to pick up something for my mother, too.

Because I'm a man, you don't have to ask me if I liked the
movie. Chances are, if you're crying at the end of it, I didn't
...and if you are feeling amorous afterwards....then I will
certainly at least remember the name and recommend it to

Because I'm a man, I think what you're wearing is fine. I
thought what you were wearing five minutes ago was fine,
too. Either pair of shoes is fine. With the belt or without it,
looks fine. Your hair is fine. You look fine. Can we just go

This has been a public service message for women to
better understand men.
