"Sex tape so and i did write diversity and i do think it's it's a wonderful episode but you need to do these things at the highest level. I mean it's it's a risk you know if you fail with something like that it's bad But i i think that you know we should all be going for that. And in my opinion audiences are not afraid of this kind of thing they like. If someone takes a risk in comedy they understand it. They get it an episode diversity day or these episodes are fine with people. It is the gatekeepers that are often very nervous on behalf of an audience. And that i think is the disconnecting you see. Stand up a lot. The most popular standoffs are the ones that are talking directly to people they have no one censoring them and their audiences get it in their audiences. Love it and hunger for it. I'm sure there are some people offended by things and you know what. I was saying about criticism. I'd be hurt and worried. If if the things i was doing were offending people i really would and and i do feel bad if and when that does happen but i think that people like that kind of thing and it is the gatekeepers that are very nervous so in the series you had an on again off again relationship with mindy tailings character and of course in life and i know you've been asked about this lots of forgive me for asking again in life. You had an on again off again relationship to and you're still very close You're the godfather to one of her children to both to both children.

These are jokes and he meant that it all had to come from character and truth and feeling that was really his school of comedy. This some i think del close was his mentor in chicago.

I was doing. Standup at the hollywood improv. And greg daniels who created. The show saw me perform and i was. Doing one liners essentially in pausing between the jokes. He told me afterwards that it was my first joke that got him. Which was. I learned nothing in college. It was really kinda my own fault. I had a double major psychology and reverse psychology. And he said it was that joke within when he met me he said it was really the pauses between your jokes because i have this idea for this temp character. Who thinks he's better than everyone. And in those pauses you you had a little arrogance. That i thought was very funny. So that's that's actually what what got me the part and then he had heard that i very much wanted to be a writer so he offered to read my script as well My spec script. Which all riders carried around then. And i got hired for both jobs at the same time and then mindy killing was was hard for both as to. What was your reaction. When he told you he heard arrogance in the pauses i thought it was good. Natured i mean yes any as we were saying before any criticism your your mind. Sort of latches onto but You know he was.

Eating the Foods Your Genetic Background Needs With Dr. BJ Hardick
"I know you work obviously with different clients. All over the place in your clinic is in london ontario. Yes right and talk about your experience working with people and really helping them. Adapt more of a ketogenic and nate lifestyle using intermittent fasting. Things like that sure. Well the first thing just trying to move towards more of a ketogenic lifestyle when you're actually eliminating grains and sugars is even though there's a lot more awareness right now people still freak out when they're told you can't have grains you can't have sugar right and a lot of times people say well wait a second you know. These are foods of the earth. The mother nature gave us pineapples and oranges and pears. And all these things we tell those be bad for you. And i always go back to this and and i think first of all you have to recognize that people have different. Genetic backgrounds are gonna processed foods differently They're going to have different types of metabolism. Some people based on where they're where they're from the world may do better with one type of food than another but in principle when you think about the higher sugar foods and the ones grains that turn into sugars. You know the reality is you know. I'm a northern caucasian. I would not be from a part of the world are pineapples are growing year round saying well what would my culture have thrived now it starts to get a little dicey when through the years. Go on twenty two in me and you find out that five percent this. I said it's not always necessarily black or white. So i do believe in listening to your body and seeing how you should in the first place but the first thing is when you tell people to eliminate these foods that they could. Actually you know a mother. Nature's foods are god's people say well that's not right because i'm supposed to eat those tax and the reality is you have to also differentiate not just. How's your body's supposed to eat but are you really trying to deal with some type of illness or a disease because there are certain illnesses that can do better under certain diet programs even though those changes are associated with the cause of the best one for example is sealy people if need gluten but consuming. Gluten doesn't cause ceac right so same thing with you know if somebody has information and they have gall bladder issues while they probably shouldn't have a ton of fat all at once but just eating fat. Your whole lifetime isn't going to give you those gallbladder so we could go on and on and on about that i. I had a friend who was dealing with cancer not consuming any fruit. Well we've never suggested that consuming fruit gave you the cancer. But we do know that getting into this state where your body's not having relied on sugar is going to benefit the immune system to help nutrition. Yeah exactly so so you have to look at it. I doing this for some clinic. Some clinical name. Or am i doing this because it is just the way my body was designed writers

Bj fog immersion. it's it's You know we had a chat with bj's slightly after and and made it a little made a little video endorsement things so that was really cool. Bj and he's like see like they're really into this topic too. I'm like it's true. We were are so this even before deep diving into bj and all the leads ingredients in tiny habits which definitely pick up that book. It's pretty obvious where you can find it everywhere new york times bestseller. So it's a. It's a book that you definitely get all of the other. I won't name names but pretty much. All of the other like habit books that have come out over the last. Several years are all sort of based off of his work. Yeah most of his work that other people just built on and taught and tried to pass off as their own names but He is a. He's the godfather of this stuff. Definitely the godfather. Yes so Definitely yeah go check out the free course. You know. Go go there. What was that. It's a tiny habits dot com tiny as we can get the course. Bj fog is a little bit more about him. So spa fog with two geez just to clear double g. double d. Nfo g g. Yeah similar to snoop dogg like that. Yeah sure he's man. I just i think what we've been immersed in this kind of thing and you know and not only just habits but more behavioral change and understanding who we are an understanding. What patterns don't we like so much or or behaviors and you know for a long time. I know like we've talked about where we've struggled with some certain patterns. And you know that we talked about this but like definitely have been some self sabotage in the past criticisms and it's like well but it doesn't have to be so hard i think for me like i know me personally. I don't give myself grace when stuff falls apart right like i. That was a personal question for me right. I wasn't a very very good workout routine for months and months and months and months. And then i took a trip to cancun and a legit. I didn't know the example as per example was right out of my life. So i went to cancun. And i actually. The interesting thing is actually maintained the workout routine through cancun. But when i came home. I didn't keep up with interesting like like. I was so sort of in my head when going to cancun that this is gonna fall apart this this routine fall apart that i actually stuck with it every day while i was there and then i came home and i was so exhausted from all the travel. I think i told you the story. We got in from cancun at like two in the morning because of the border was all backed up and we had issues and so the next day. I was just like so exhausted. That i just. I can't even right like this. Couldn't even further days after that. And then after that i just kind of never picked back up with the habit again right. So that's where that question came from a personal thing that pops up for me. It's like i can get into a good habit that going on vacation. I sort of fall out of it. And then i start to like beat myself up when i get home of like man. Why can't i get back into it when i got home. Well i missed the last three days. What's another day and then the next thing you know you spend months man. It's it's it's crazy when you start thinking that because when you look at yourself really wait hold on. I was not helping myself. In that scenario it was it. Was the the beating myself up mentally that caused me to not do it going you suck you skipped a day. You already broke. The chain filled the train like that concept of breaking the chain. Like i can see why he says it's it doesn't work. It's not great because if you break the chain that sort of pressure that you put on yourself of breaking the chain just kind of makes you at least in my scenario it made me kind of go. Well the chains already broken. So what's the big deal if the broken link goes a little bit longer and then that broken link just goes longer and longer so. I do think that that don't break the train. Con chain. concept can be detrimental to your progress with building behaviors. It puts pressure on you. Maybe i needed pressure. Maybe it's on a thing that wasn't life or death i mean. Yeah maybe there are certain things in your life where you really should not break the chain mccain rushing your teeth people picking up your kids from school things like that but you're right you know it's a. I think that that was kind of an aha moment. Even though i feel like when you kind of step back like duh you probably should feel good when you want to improve some part of your life some aspect But but i think. I don't know if it's a natural behavior that a lot of us are are maybe it's conditioning from the past. Or it's just like you're so hard on yourself or that you're you know you're so goal goal oriented also habit tiny enough. That's like the habit for me. Was an entire forty five minute workout routine right and so when you come back and you try to keep going back with that habit you know it. It feels big. It feels monumental after a while. Where had my habit been. Like when i get back. I'm just going to try to get into my garage and just do one one barbell press right like that's the habit just go for one and then what inevitably happens is once..

I mean when you were you any gaming school you to get the new jersey gaming control commission permission and moved to table. I mean that's a little overkill but they were so strict when you will you opening up a can of worms here when you were a dealer you had to do six you had to go to do jersey accredited school and then when you graduate school. You auditioned as you were dealer. You were black and whites black shirt. Black pants white shirt and you went to an audition for your instructor if you passed addition. Then you've got you're doing then you go to jersey gaming control you gave me license and you know you'll license we'll say. Let's say for instance. Bjp look blackjack dealer. Then you go to apply for a job where you apply for a job. They they capitalized game wants to do is elisa was only watching. Four games watches you deal and then he she will say okay. Now you're good. You could deal now. You must deal eight hundred hours of four. You're allowed to become a supervisor. Anthea deal eight hundred hours.

He's gonna get all that. And i'm just glad you're here man. I'm glad you so transparent because this is a story that can help a whole lot of people because people think that people can't change yes you hit a just tell everybody if you can change anybody could change right indeed much stories. Pretty pretty simple. I think that My store is no different than many folks but where it differs is the accountability piece and the transparency piece. I believe that children learn what you know. And from where they live and then they go on to live what they learned you know. What's the old saying. Her people hurt people. yes Well i believe that's that's a fact also believe that they hurt people because they haven't learned what the it is in. You know that's causing them to hurt others in first if almost they're hurting themselves to begin with and then they go on to hurt other other folks. You know so i. I just believe that we have to speak life into our children's lives because again is beginning in those four walls in those four walls at the house and then obviously is coming out to the halls of work school churches so currently kirk franklin and his son going back and forth. You heard about that right. No have not all men him and his son going back and forth his son put out a audiotape. A to the world of kirk franklin cussing his son out like a sailor. You soon as thirty. Three's is first born and a lot of people trying to figure out what are the dynamics. End our relationship and he was just talking about hurt. People hurt people. Kurt was really angry and his son. Said he's put hands on him before. An therapy sessions What kind of anger is that between family members. So son in a father well again. You know you're talking about agassi physical abuse but it starts with emotional abuse and again i take it back to the root cause of it. Meaning where did kurt actually get. Those methods of solving problems You know so. What did he witness child or what happened to him. Yeah did somebody do something that his parents put a family member or even a coach or maybe even a choir director someone in the choir. They put hands on him. There is a route costs for that anger. You know i'd venture to say that many men today. Bj their anger comes from a source. Meaning many men are have been molested as children at spoke at a conference. Had a gentleman literally come up to me with his wife and he said. Hey w i gotta be honest after hearing you speak i wanna i wanna get to the root of it. I'm gonna go ahead and Tell my story. This was the seventy seven year old man and he looks wife. Looks at me. Says a w have been married for fifty two years and i've been abused my wife for fifty four years fifty four years says he looks at her looks at me says honey this is it. I gotta go. I gotta get it out. He said when i was nine years old he says sixty eight years ago. My girl cousin molested lau goes on to say. I thought i was hurting her Because there were times. When i was bleeding and i didn't know i was bleeding. You know and. I thought that i caused her to bleed. Yeah and He said but the thing when she was finished with me eight w she would pass me onto my brother my other my my god cousin and he would molest wow man he's always says i'm here to tell you. He looks at his wife. Looks at me and he says honey. I'm gay and this is a man has been married for fifty. Two years abused her for fifty four and he says to her. I hate women at those days. You know it wasn't favorable for someone to come out as a gay man so he went through the motions and the facades. And i think when you when you said that about kirk franklin. I'll talk about my life. One of the common ingredients of an abuser is. You are a hero at work in the public uh-huh but you are zero at home. And i think what his son was. Probably trying to show the world like most abusers is as my daddy like i do. I don't see who he really is when he's not cameras on and so you know and so. That's why you know if you look at the photos. That i have out there. You'll see me all dressed up you'll see this mask of a wolfson and that's the hypocrisy half man half animal. You're an animal and that's what you abuser sees day. See the the wolf in you.

NFL cuts expected to be a ‘massacre,’ ‘bloodbath’ next week
"We are on the fringe. We're nearing free agency. Actually just read a very interesting to tweet about a nfl coach. Saying that next week was gonna be a bloodbath. with the cap situation Do the covid that it's going to be a very interesting year. A lot of people are going to be getting cut prior to free agency to free up room. So we'll see what happens In you know the free agents were talking about might not even be like the big guys you know we end up signing at the end of the day so one big name we have been talking about and you specifically talked about this guy. Quite a bit is joni From new england the patriots are not going to use the franchise on him again. They can't do it. They they're cap situation would allow forward. I believe but with what you end up making the second time around. It really doesn't make any sense to them. As i was listening to boston. Sports radio their day like they were talking about that. Very topic so loonies. He's a big name. being fans. Love is a big often. Attack was out there And they've got to think about bringing their own guys. Back to william jackson in kara lawson entering free agency. So that's a big big names in some big money right there. What what can really afford to do. So that you you hit the list You hit you hit the big players. They're they have of course two big guys. Internally that are scheduled to be free agents in jackson and lawson one of those may end up getting the franchise tag. Probably the non-exclusive. If i had a bad at this point i'd probably say it's carl lawson and and we don't know the exact figures yet but they'll come out soon what the values will be But it's based position and since deandre get paid a little bit more than corners. Speed deanne tag is going to be a little higher. But i think that's a cost of the bengals are willing to take just to avoid the risk of losing carl. Potentially at an already weakened spot you know masterpass russia's spin has been existent Especially last year And i think room on bengals dot com had a couple of comments today from an article today saying they're looking to shore up the pass rush and he didn't mention actually edge rusher cement of course interior pressure which was good to see liu mentioned and we can talk about some interior linemen. Who are going to be on the market that could provide some interior. Pass rush to collapse the pocket if you will but to your question about what. They can't afford i. There is a way for them to structure these contracts with the amount of space that they have available. Of course we don't know what official cap will be just like we don't know what the tag amounts are going to be. We don't really know the final numbers quite yet. We know the cap can't go below one eighty But let's assume it stays right at that floor. I been under the working on the assumption that it's going to creep up to one eighty five rather optimistically but who knows if it gets that high. Is you mentioned kobe. Kobe tope took all essentially all the local revenues that these teams generated and made it two zero for almost all of them. There are some teams based on the cities and state. They were in that allowed some attendance. That really you know. It was a small percentage of what a normal season would be. So they're sitting in a good spot. Relatively speaking in terms of current cap space. There are about thirty seven million once you account for the almost eleven million. They rolled over last year. So at that point if they just stay there. They're they're currently line to be seventh most in cap space and that's a lot to work with in terms just resigning those guys internally and then going out on the market for tuning type of player ariba some more mid tier guys in the bond bell mold last year. You know a more of a modest deal where you get a lot of value in that regard but if they ended up staying put without making cuts and being seventh and cap space that gives them a lot of flexibility. But i think to your earlier point. We are gonna start seeing a lot more cut. We started seeing some today. There were some report. I think gave jackson the right guard for the raiders is not. There's a report that they they're looking to trade their right tackle trent brown. If they can't find a trade partner they'll likely cut him too. So the market's going to be flooded. It's going to be starting to be flooded. It's going to be even more so and on the bengals and they're likely to make some calm cap cuts. They don't need to make them because they have plenty of room. But just the value is not there to keep some of these guys on the books. You know the names. Bobby heart which will save just under five point nine million. Bj phinney will save three and a quarter million with no dead money and then of course geno atkins. We've talked about the gino situation Pretty at length and the question will be whether they released him. Post june one or or designated or releasing prior to june one or designate him or our releasing post you one which adds a little bit more savings to it but if you cut those three guys even if you don't cut gino with a post june one designation that adds about nine million in addition In additional cap space. So if you had that. Nineteen to thirty seven. Obviously naira almost sixty million and fifty six million give or take And that would baltim- in the top five of capital so they have a lot of flexibility to enter the long-term extensions with both their internal free and to go out on the market and signs of sizeable Upgrades hopefully on the offense line and positions that they they really need to

5 Steps to Jump Start Your Diet
"Your diet or what you tend to eat every day can play a major role in how you feel and how you handle the pressures of everyday life so to get you back on track with your nutrition. Our guest today is gonna share five steps to jumpstart your diet and of course our virtual guests today is none other than registered. Dietitian debbie james. Welcome back to the show. Debbie thank you again and what a wonderful time to think about something new in this new year absolutely yes gonna jump. Start those diets for everyone. Okay we had. We just made it through the holidays. So let's get back on track here Like i mentioned a lot of us got off track last year. Probably with our diets. So as we were kinda lamenting this fact. Debbie good idea to come up with some simple steps to right the ship get back on track and create some good eating habits. So you kind of came up with these five steps What's the first step to getting back to a healthy diet. Or you said good eating habits and so i actually put them together in the acronym habit h. A. b. i. T. so the age is for healthy diet. Define what eating healthy means to you. 'cause it's not the same for everybody. It could be smaller portions to be calorie controlled. It could be more plant-based maybe it's low fat to deal with your cholesterol. Maybe it's unprocessed so whatever healthy diet means to you or healthy eating means to you frame it like it out. What does that mean for each type of food group or eating situation or meal so that you're actually defining that healthy diet that h okay so once you define what eating healthy means to you. What would be the next up that you would suggest taking. So you're a your age. Abt your ace step would be ask yourself. What's in the way of you. Achieving that healthy diet so is it. Circumstances is the situation is a bad routine. You can't say the healthy diet is this. And i want to get there. You have to say what ask yourself what is in the way. What are my obstacles. So that i can address those. You know. it's interesting with the obstacle thing. it's kind of like when we write narratives like in the film television world. You're always trying to put obstacles in your characters way so that they have to overcome them which leads to some meaningful narrative arc changing their characters. So i suppose in this way you just need to you know kind of creative writer and discover in your own life. What are those obstacles that right. Like a speed bump Sort of yeah. You need to self reflect. Basically this is your assessment. The a could also be assessment Right agree so once you've honestly assessed what your pitfalls are. What do you think you do next to avoid those. So then the b of the h. a. b. It is behaviors so rather than thinking about the individual foods. You actually have to look. Habit is behavior. it's a matter of choices of what we do. So what behaviors. What actions do you need to change. What are the ones that you're doing poorly or that you're willing to shift. And then you have to identify the alternatives of what it is you want to do. So there's a behavior change specialist. Bj fog he's a phd from stanford and he's author of tiny habits. He says that you have to identify the ones that you want to do. You can do. That are impactful to be effective because it wouldn't make sense. Let's say if i just said oh. A healthy diet means eating more fiber. And i don't get enough salad so therefore i'm going to eat more coleslaw right. Why would i choose that. If i don't like cabbage that would be that would be like making myself. Gag it down. It's not one i want to do. You have to identify the ones that you're willing to do the our chief -able that you can do and that are live as a replacement. It's not enough just to say. I need to stop doing acts. You need to identify what actions you are going to do to to implement. So what what what. What would an example of that be perhaps like in. Maybe someone that you've done this with or someone you know that's gone through this with the behavior change. What's an example of that okay so first. Let's say that someone is looking at getting more calorie control diet so a healthy diet to them energy balance and they've identified They've asked themselves what's in the way that eat too big large portion. They drink sweetened beverages. Maybe they're mindlessly eating between meals so that mindlessly eating between meals are going to address and their behavior instead of randomly grabbing something from the kitchen to snack on instead they're going to choose to drink water or chew gum if they're not really hungry so they've said this is what i'm going to do instead. This is the behavior the alternative. I'm willing to implement so. Is that like when you think when you catch yourself doing that behavior that you want to get rid of you catch yourself doing that and then you go okay. Here's what i'm going to do instead of you try and build that in your mind your mind so exactly. That's the that's the eye of the of the habit is the implementing that change. And it's deliberate choice that you consciously have to make repeatedly like practice makes perfect until it's it becomes unconscious. I was trying to explain it as a brand new drive like a brand new student driver. You have to tell them. Okay you're gonna pull into the parking space and that your foot got to be depressed on the brake pedal all the way then. You're going to shift the car into park. Then you can turn off the ignition right and so there's like this process and they have to think about it because they're not used to it and for me to do that. It's like half a second. I can do all of those and i haven't even thought about it. I've done it so so so many times. So making those alternative actions is a deliberate choice repeatedly until it becomes second nature interesting all right well before we get too much further into the final steps here we just remind people that they can subscribe.

I like our army living army. All right well great. Well welcome to the platoon. everyone Thank you for subscribing. Now let's get back to the so so we covered the ha be but now we need to find out about it. The it right so you kind of touched on the i a little bit. You said that was implementation. Is that right. Yeah implementing change so the swapping of the when. Poor behavior for the improved. Okay so real quick just to recap so we'd first of all you got to define what health healthy diet means to you because it's it's different for everyone. It probably shouldn't be ep pizza. All the time probably shouldn't be Then you gotta ask yourself. What's in your way of achieving. That kind of diet you know. What are your obstacles. Be honest about that. And then he got to address those obstacles by figuring out what behaviors you need. A change can or what actions he needed to take So you know that you've got to implement it. What are some of the most. I guess i think you mentioned. Maybe that there's with implementations you deal with triggers. But what are some of the more common triggers. You know that gives us the urge to eat Like you mentioned mindless eating for example. Like you just kind of get up and you want to the kitchen and now that you there you open the fridge and grab a snack you know. So how do we kind of some of the most common triggers that lead to that kind of stuff. Oh man we're we're so easily tempted to eat. It could be the smell of something it could be that you. You hear the little chime of the ice cream truck. It could be a sound on serious. What so true britain. Let's let's let's do a quick one brittany. What do you think is a trigger for you like do you do. Have you identified any triggers for you. I can tell you you think of one. I'll tell you what. I think i think of mine. One of mine is definitely like just watching television. Which is i assume. Maybe a big one for people but watching tv like in the evening. If i like just put on family guy or something where it's like. I don't even really have to be paying attention. I literally sometimes like turn the show on started. And i will walk. Divide kitchen to go. Get a snack while the show plays. It's like what am i doing. Not even watching it. So is it the act of watching tv and at the same time. You're by the tv. No it's not because fans guys like a snack now. I don't see something delicious. And you're like oh i wanna go eat that like no no no. I don't think it's that it's not so you've already paired those two associated them. From the moment you click the remote. Exactly it's literally. Yeah its relationship with food. i know it does. a little bit are true. They're all kind of connected. But that is one that i've discovered i'm like i need to like stay active and not watching television because it like it literally is so paired. Now that i it's hard for me to fight it. It's very sold so so. Yeah we're talking about that. That few pairing. Oh britney came up with one. Okay go ahead. No i could just think of a few like naturally. When i'm at the movie theaters popcorn i mean you smell it everywhere and instinctively when i'm there i just feel like okay. It's time treat yourself. Get some candidates and popcorn. Enjoy you know. Enjoy the show that guy taking a. That's a silver lining for me. When you're you have. Hey when you're at home. And i'm sitting on instagram. I follow a lot of food accounts. And whenever i'm looking at it long enough it always causes need to go downstairs and get a snack or makes them eat. I'm always hungry after. I mean i guess that's and looking at food. Obviously so then you'll have to pare. Pare the action that you want to do something. So in the example. I gave before of the person that's mindlessly eating between meals and they said okay instead of my Wandering into the kitchen that they're going to drink water gum instead will. They're they're triggered. wanna pair. That with is every time they change room. So if i get up from the desk and i'm leaving my home office i'm gonna grab my water bottle to take with me. It's already in my hand and easy. You know to get up to my mouth or pull the chewing gum out of my pocket or something. so that's an example of pairing it with an action so andrew. I'm gonna ask you in yours of turning the tv on and wondering to the kitchen for some people that staying on the sofa all night because you said be more active instead. So are you in your. I'll say comfy clothes kind of your house pants pajamas. Whatever when you watch tv or you wearing workout gear. I that's rapidly in lounge. Wear it's i now. I've done more. My workouts are now more in the morning so yeah probably lounge. Yes that is that is true accent. Why do you break that me. Very comfy chair lazy blades. Put your feet up. It has yeah. I know about that thing. As long as it doesn't have like a food tray. That would the food trade. That i do not have that but yeah that is interesting so i wonder i do need to figure out like i've also found like i almost like if i just don't go in my kitchen i can get over it but like if i go in my kitchen it's all over and so i'm like just don't go in my kitchen. Sometimes we need a distraction. That's actually helps get in the way so for example if this is an after dinner time that you're talking about and brush teeth. Maybe than if you did teeth whitener or you did your dental rants or you put on your retainer or any of those things that really you know your mouth has to be fresh and pure clean for all the things to work so if if you do those as an interruption before you sit down that might help you break that association. That's interesting do have a night guard. So maybe i get in bed do yeah. That's not a bad idea. Yeah that's that's bright. That's that's really interesting Yeah maybe. I will definitely have to try that. That's definitely one that stood out to me that i'm like. This is a trigger for me. That i don't even almost realize it just creates this like urge and i almost feel like you know if children sit down and eat a meal in front of the tv. They start to develop that kind of Connection you know to where it becomes like this like you said paired thing and it's you've got to really work a little bit hard to break that perisher or like or like the expectation of dessert like since when since when did we have a desert following every single meal like excuse me it's supposed to be a precious treat to enjoy not okay lunches over piece of cake. Dinners over ice cream lunch over cookies. Dinners over pot now. That was awesome. that was almost. I feel like that's like a song. That's getting ready to start to there. You go that's awesome okay. This is a little bit of a side note on dessert. But i thought about it. And i thought i now when we order food and bring it back home. We eat the desert. If we get it we eat the desert. I hear me okay. And the reason is as it's like Nutrition is probably tear body but it has ice cream so it's like a position okay. Love that so we eat a first because my thinking is look that thing's gonna it's gonna melt. It's not gonna last. You can't really save it. It's not going to be the same so eat it now and the food your main dish you can save half of it for tomorrow or the next day so like i've kind of restructured my eating hierarchy. I guess when it comes to take just totally random. I'd desert i i. We don't have a dessert after every meal. Or here's my question. Would you do that with every type of dessert. Or is it only because ice. Cream's going to melt as i was saying i was thinking about that. I think it's just all about. Will it be okay if i save it for tomorrow. If i can't right the ki won't be the same hours you put it in the freezer for an hour while you eat the cookie cookies. Not warm anymore zelina. Reheat it all of a. You're using like energy. You know you gotta like pay. Your bill. And i don't know goes into making having that desert. Yeah but this side because we need to get back to habit but as there there is some justification to At least children to have whatever we would consider the dessert item to be served with dinner. So that it's not regarded separately. It's not a reward. it's not You have to eat your vegetables in order to get axed that when i worked for head start and that's a preschool program It was it was done at the same time. So if you serve the tacos and you serve the orange slices and you serve the little sugar cookies and you had the milk out and you did it all at the same time family style. The kids didn't down all the cookies before they ate the rest of you know. They chose the tacos and they had some carrots and they really places. Yeah hi brian. I'm sorry but i'm going through. This live right now and i cannot stand by listen to this perfect world situation. I honestly that's amazing for those kids. And maybe kid is just wild but because because they they knew that it was there that it was available that it was part of the meal and they would each get one well that i think that was in no matter. What exactly they just didn't put it on either. Played a few right. I've seen my niece and nephew. Though were they know they're going to get dessert at the end but half to finished their meal too. I mean i guess that's not quite sent them all at once but but here. Here's why i think we've gone to the desert comes after you finish your meal because you put it on theoretically it makes sense to me but in practice you put everything there and the kid eats the desert right off the bat and then they don't finish the important protein on their dish. And then you're in this big battle like you need to finish all of it. I give you the option you went there. I fine because we're trying to be all good like everything's available and then but then you didn't finish and now you didn't eat which you needed to announce a big argument about it and now you don't sleep well. Something's going on here time. Did it take time for the kids to create a behavior like that or was it something that they initially did the first time that you put it all out there also key also keeping cookie end of this is this is a a small portion controlled item. It's not like an eighth of a cheesecake. That has like a whopping five hundred calories than just plays the meal. I'm talking about the size of an oriole. i'm talking right. It's something modest. I can see that over time. Okay if i eat my food. It'll still be there. So i'll do both or or not but yet battling to finish the plate. Have you ever seen the little psychology films where they put kids in room with a secret camera and they left them with a slice of chocolate cake or and they said if you don't touch it you can have twice as much after ten minutes and the patients chance right. Yes watch all the mom. And dad's go through during quarantine with can't some of these kids amazed me others them going back to the habit thing that wasn't so much an intervention that that or behavior that the children chose but that was presented to them and like we talk about getting kids to eat right role modeling presenting it to them in a very neutral way but repeated multiple times. And that's what i was talking about the the implementing. The new behavior is repeated multiple times so that it becomes that becomes the second nature. It becomes the expectation of not sitting down and stuffing your face when you watch tv but maybe popping in that that night guard right right. Yeah exactly yeah and that's where it takes. I think practice with these things. Implementation is okay. Now you have to exert some discipline in sticking to your plan of how you created the plan with hiv. Basically you're implementing the plan and that's where it takes that discipline to follow your plan and not deviate too much from that. I imagine exactly okay. So that's that's h we gotta get to the t. Step five and the last step in the process t is tailoring the plan so that means you can tweak What triggered youth parented with or the alternate behavior to overcome. Whatever obstacles might come in the and so you have to monitor and evaluate to get there. So i'm going to give an example of Another h t a whole nother scenario. So let's say the healthy diet. This person says okay. I need something high in fiber and low in saturated fat to help lower cholesterol. that's their healthy diets. There a is. Why can't i get that done. Well i'm asking myself i'm assessing. I don't have time to cook. I end up eating out and frozen meals etc. So be they say. Okay the behaviors. I'm going to do instead of fried foods and heavily cheesy items instead of ordering those a water you know salad and vegetable side dishes and things without dairy so they plan that intervention. They said okay so now. I'm trying to order those things and i find myself when i'm scanning the menu trying to get lean select us leaner selections and get more fruits and veggies I'm out of time. it's. I'm i'm actually getting to my meal so late that i'm ordering quickly can't find them blah blah blah so then they have to tweak their plan and say okay well if the menus too overwhelming alternate now they need to maybe download apps that they can save favorites on the. You know the preorder menu or identify the pdf menus for sit down restaurants of of what they're going to get once they get there and so maybe it's not at the moment of ordering but they're making their decisions ahead of time and that's their tweak is they have to be able to do something a little different but still follow the same Objectives

Magic. was that they seem to believe everything they were singing and that to me was the oh, that's the way to go about this you know. Because I've never been one to just hit the notes and you know just punch the buttons but always tried to sing with feeling and to transmit a feeling that that had. They were motions there that I was having when I was singing and and really the black entertainers were the greatest entertainers of my time and they were doing it as well or better than than anyone, and I could see that were it was more fun for me.
