What would you think of the pie. it was delicious. i love everything about it. They had twenty different types of meat. There was just me. was it called lovers. I think it is added them so we just got a plane went an added them. You know what the results are going to because when you pick these pies up from gino's east it's a five pound pizza right. At least you can get through this thing. That's five action pounds. You know what else is great. They don't cut it. Did you pick it up the whole thing. Hold it up like a burrito sauce. Just cut it in quarters. Which for some reason felt great. Did eric again. Yeah she did so she had a quarter and you went three quarters up. Oh my god and the crust until you any other challenges as far as working out in expanding too much energy. We've been having a watch yourself. There did play a game of kickball in the cul de sac.

Because we were on my scale uniform scale and aaron hand dumped in a couple days then had a big evacuation shortly after we recorded and got back on the scale and he was down two to eighty eight so we had lost two pounds previously. And if you count that bob but as it stands as the record book will reflect. Air was at two ninety point. Six in charlie curtis was at two fifty four point eight. Do you wanna make a prediction. Either gentlemen. I would like to make a prediction. I'm gonna say. Charlie has gotten into the low sixties a while. I don't want him to be. That's my prediction. That'd be a big week. he would have accelerated. I think charlie's be two fifty nine point two. Okay i'm gonna say to sixty one. Okay you want to make an air prediction well. I was hoping yet a visitor. Maybe a little fun food not just chicken. yeah be a good host. Weren't just cooking up. Chicken breast and brussels sprouts all the time getting some exciting foods. That's what i was hoping for. And now we counterbalance it with kovic. Maybe an intentional ploy to come down maleness here but no the corn ashby was borderline cheap. You going to pan out in his favor. Knowing to ninety highland. I'm going to say to eighty five is kind of his own. I'm thinking that's.

"Of business scoreless tie even though I think if it's a school is that if it's if it's a ninety minute kickball game nobody scores you shouldn't get a point for the tie you should get no points only got a point if if it's a tight you know one one one yeah for the day exactly but really got a point out of that so they're not out of the relegation troubles but maybe in a west ham fan I really needed villa to either drop three points as they say in soccer or right or wrong it did not give them to drop those reports given that one did kill me but it didn't help because west ham is what's the word I'm looking for garbage rubbish rubbish I say you know a villa did they do this but Kohli defense whatever the V. I. V. A. are somehow going to Amman hello hi I was so when I did watched with the sound on mmhm I have to say because that would when it comes to crowd noise in it being up pumped in on the broadcast they don't hear it in the stadiums I did but I was kind of ambivalent I didn't know I put it in if I did lean one way of seeing towards giving the natural sounds of the game and the the few books like the few German league matches I watched it was it gets kind of boring you know just not having a crowd noise so NBC sports network with the premier league this is broadcast they pumped in a crowd noise just for the television viewers and I have to say I liked it yeah I need it I need it it is absolute I mean you used in the grass yes that is exactly right where it felt normal and it was it was it was it just that it wasn't and on which shots or or save or anything of that nature would like there was a lot of and on to be done anywhere in the Sheffield the bill a batch but it was just it was the chanting and and that's it you know it's a big part of soccer it it's the the the highs and lows of the chance to just kind of that background noise so I mean you know win win baseball rolls around the NBA and NFL it's obviously different than soccer but I think I'm leaning towards I I I need my ID must sports laugh track I think I think any more crowd noise when it when I'm watching on television it just it it it enhances the viewing and it definitely makes it seem normal yeah how can the premier league had no seeming issues like baseball at I mean there is T. there's guys they don't have a union big big Bucks next purchase of Revolut where's the revenue will largely come from because they're paying these guys massively so there's gonna be some huge revenue is the gate revenue a big percentage of what they do or is it where they get the revenue it's all TV TV sky sports pays billions of dollars to broadcast premier league in England and the possibly worldwide with the exception of of of here because NBC doesn't and they pay hundreds of millions of dollars so it's mostly television but yeah there's there's no union there's no union there's no draft you know you have you know the transfer market but the owners of the twenty premier league teams they don't have to collectively bargain anything with the players because there's no players union to collectively bargain with everybody's pretty much on their own just the way they like it just the way I like it yeah yeah he goes on the more money you got the more money you could spend if you choose to yeah and those dudes that those dudes have money are you there yes and do that over there they could be like baseball yeah in this wraps up in August straight like a kid like late August unlike them twelve games is it twelve games left or is about I forget somewhere around there but yeah pretty soon in August hello I'm you know I'm I'm I'm a big fan I I enjoy just have it on as as background noise just like I'm going to enjoy baseball and I think we stop seeing if we get it it's going to be a win we get it just a matter how many games but it's going to be great to have that all in in in the background and you know just for you know what we do and what we do around here it's gonna be great to hear John and Dave recruit can can I do I can't wait because it was definitely it was kind of comforting is the wrong word it was just cool to have premier league soccer Beckel it looked good it sounded good yeah even the the great thing about baseball to go hand in support good day you know you look at it on the radio in your car you get home you turn it on you may not grounded repeats but it's there for you and it's every single day and there was also a revenge season to have a story what's a mosaic Leri is what it is yeah just got to see how to put it together to be a smaller moves in like a mosaic for the both of you this is for the patrol with y'all what I just came up with that Morgan I'm sorry time is being created to be sorry for doubting you some of the most opportune beer you check it out if time okay instead of getting the jump on the top of the fifth yeah right and throws left and right now box that's that's that that's there let's go you know what red card to him you know you're you're out get out B.

I appreciate you having me. It was kind of hard to follow up. You know your mom. She had a lot of energy. She had a lot. She has been. My mom was just literally through you. Know through zoom. You're sitting here right next to me in this beautiful studio that we now have. I know you love it but this is a little different for me as I've never done. Miss it is it is it. It's a little nervous. It's kind of like an interview. You know what you want to say but when you actually get in front of an individual you kind of just start drawing blanks last question. Actually last question. I'm going to pick on you so last question. What do you think of the PODCASTS for foreign I? I wanted to be honest and I'm going to lower my voice because I want you to be honest. Honest feedback is very hard to get every person's like Oh my God. It's so great. That is awesome. But that's bullshit. I don't want that. I want your opinion as my really good friend of what the show could use. What what other topics do you have ideas? Because I'm getting tons of them and I just want to get some info from you. Well I think it's a very good start of a podcast the first four episodes I like that. You're giving out recipes especially since you gave me one of my favorite like favorite chicken recipes. an kind of learning from you know different types of pastas have being created. I would like to see this actually being expanded longer. Right Mike. We've been talking. Twenty two minutes is not long enough. Yes but the previous episodes has been Kinda short still ten and eleven my call when you were young and your I I trying to figure out sacks and all those things or even making out. Let's not get crazy. You have to take your time. You got to build up not agree but you ask me what my hours. I know me. I don't take criticism. So maybe that's why I know tells me so. Hold on. We started at like fifteen minutes and then I made it to nineteen minutes and my mom was twenty two minutes. You and I are over twenty three minutes right now. That's growth brother. It is growth and I think that as time goes on. I think that you have a lot of good topics and I want to expand on that okay. And that's what I'm saying is like I feel like it's too short like you touch bits and pieces but I think that we can expand a lot longer and I think the podcasts. Can it would help the podcast right. Well I appreciate that. That's exactly what I want. And then what in the world do I need to do to get a five star review from you? Because you're the only one that I know that have not done it. Are you ashamed of me? No I'm very just I don't like to be in the public is so I can tell you. Make a fake name Buddy. You can write whenever something Mike or you can make yourself bruce. If you WANNA kick Bruce I will. I will give you that by tomorrow morning. Yeah I'm a little letdown. I gotta be honest with you. I listened to him. I listen to you on the first. Isn't that tell you? Hey I like this and I. I laughed at Dad. And let me tell you what. I got going on real quick before we finish. I have a person that wants to have me on your podcast tomorrow. I think that's really cool. Never done that so brown. Screw that up. I don't WANNA say religious type stuff but I'm not quite sure I don't want to screw that up. And then oddly enough. It's so crazy that I've been booming in Canada. Oh Canada and I have a Canadian person that I'm going to be on her podcast way absolutely love. I'm not GonNa name at night right now. Because maybe she's not going to publish it if I screw up but I think that's going to be really good for me to continue to learn how to do this so I look forward to that and then hopefully I can learn from those in our next time we do. This together. Could be much better yet. Just like how you're learning. I'M GONNA learn listen to podcasts and see how other guests kind of the one before. I've done this Nicholas. Just not my thing I would say will listen to a few but really I just kind of like listening to reggae music or videos so well thank you so much grow. We made it over twenty five minutes. I think he killed it. Let's hope this all recorded well and I appreciate your time and until next time my friend. Let's let's keep hanging out. Okay Talk to you soon. Well I think that went well. Mike just left We listened to the segment. You guys are going to hear Three or four times. He was a little critical of himself in the beginning. I think once we had three four drinks he loved it. He felt like a star. I think he did very well I think I think he'll continue to enjoy doing this. Moving forward if I have him on the show more often. We have a lot of funny stories to share. I can't thank him enough for coming. He's a good friend. Please send me your feedback. Share kickball Mike. Some love ten items or less podcasts. At gmail.com show kickball Mike.

"One of my four children had three nightmares last night. It was like a Christmas Carol but in the middle of March he had he had one one. Anybody couldn't remember his nightmares. Have you ever had nightmares before man I have and they can be so scary after? He had his nightmares. And I finally got to sleep I didn't have a nightmare but I had a dream. Which is it's weird for me to say it's a fun dream but I went to a grocery store with a couple of friends of mine and we walked around and we ate samples. I mean does it sound like a lot of fun. I understand that but for me at the moment it seemed like the best kind of fun I had this as a little A little pastry a little flaky pastry would some kind of cheese in it. Oh is so good. I had a piece of steak. They gave me a piece of steak at the sample booth. I've never I've never had steak at a sample booth. What kind of magical dreamlike store is this? I don't now but when I was asking him about his dreams he couldn't remember all he remembered is that he was sad and scared. And it made me sad and so I I came into his bed and I down so we do is because he. Has you know a tiny little bed is his heads on one end and my head's on the other and then our feet or going in the opposite directions and that's just so we. Have you know a little bit a little bit of room right to to try to get back to sleep? And then I take my my left hand and kind of laid it down over his Onto his legs and just kind of patted him to say. It'll be okay buddy. It'll be okay. It'll be okay. And he he calm down before we even. He came into the room and got us and I gave him a big hug. Big Tight bear hug. And I said are you okay? What's the matter you're gonNA YOU'RE GONNA be okay? No Daddy's here Mommy's here we're we're here. Everyone is here and he said okay because he was very tired. Also middle of the night when this happened and like like two thirty three in the morning. It's very very early or late. I guess this is is your glass half full or half empty kind of situation. It was very middle the night we'll say that and so I got him back into bed and He actually he wanted a little cup of water and then he used the restroom and then we got back into bed and I patted his legs. And I said it's going to be okay. It's going to be okay now. I have a theory and you can tell me what you think about this theory but I have a theory in my theory is if you're in If you have some sort of a stress some sort of tumbled some sort of a rough times during the day. Maybe that sometimes your brain doesn't want to deal with that rough stuff that stress at that moment and so your brain stores at all into a folder back in the back of your brain right into the your and then when you lay down the night crew comes in and takes over from the day chef they said hey see you later day. Shift earn trip. We'll see you later and the night shift comes in and they've got this stack of folders from the day like okay. We got a process all the stuff that happened during the day. You know they start going through the folders Look this we played kickball. Let's have a little kickball dream even if it's just a tiny dream. Oh this folder is very heavy and very dark and very. Oh well let's open at all. My goodness is a lot of stress. Is Child was worried about something? Oh what what in the world? Maybe it's that you have a test coming up. Maybe it's somebody something mean to you. Maybe your dog ate your ball or something like that. All that stuff goes into your folder. You're sad scared. Worried angry folder. Whatever and then when this night crew opens it they're like Whoa. Whoa WHOA WHOA. We didn't deal with any of that stuff today. You know what assist throw it all against the board and see what happens the dream board as it were and then you get to deal with whatever I guess comes from there to your brain hasn't dealt with whatever issues you had during the day even turn analyzed everything you've taken all your emotions and you've squish them squish squish squish squish squish. Them down into you and then at night. They're like Outta Hair Bah. And then maybe you might have little nightmares. Which is sad right but understandable. Also you have a lot going on. Everybody's got a lot going on in their day in their minds. Not just like the normal stuff but maybe schedule has been shifted around. Maybe things are a little bit different than they used to be. And even just different can be enough to to to to make you worried about things or to get you anxious to get you angry and you know if if you're too tired or whatever two or you're too busy to deal with that that anxiousness that anger then it all goes into that folder the night crew doesn't know what to do with it they just open it up and then boom. Bam boom whatever happens happens frank. I think that maybe a better way for the day crew to deal with this stuff is to label the folders right and so the night crews not coming into this blind. The maybe we're going to have Even even color coded maybe blue for happy Read for angry yellow for Sad Green maybe for worry. I don't know purple. I like purple for silly make sense right and then so then you can put all your your thoughts from the day into these folders and so then when the night crew comes along they can they can look at it and they can go okay. You know what? Let's let's this. Looks like this Angry folders sad folder is pretty thick tonight. Let's how about let's work through these other ones? We're going to leave this one here for the For the day crew. Or maybe we'll just take a little bit out of that one and we can spread it in with the other stuff just to try to minimize the impact of the of the bad stuff. Because you know if the folders aren't labeled they don't have any idea what's in them and they're just going to open it up and then wham Bam you got a crazy dream man right which it's bad because then if you have crazy dreams that keep you up at night. Then the next day you're tired bright and that just means you're almost set up for more rough stuff to happen which is just gonNA keep filling up that bad folder which is just going to keep on making you anxious and making you worried and making you upset and without some sort of labelling system. I'm telling you it's just going to become a spiral. It's just going to keep happening. It's GonNa come around gonNA creep coming around. It's like a trolley car. Here comes boom here comes. Boom here comes so we need to talk to the manager. Whoever's managing your brain. I'm assuming you and we need to figure out a way to set up a good system for your daily activities your thoughts your feelings your emotions to be more properly labelled so the night crew isn't coming in blind And then from there. I can only see good things happening. I can only imagine that things are going to get better and better. Maybe not you know. Here's the thing too if we're going to transition to a whole new system then there's GonNa be some bumps in the road there's GONNA be some confusion. There might even be some mislabeling which could lead to just lay. Let's say you have your really really really really really really really angry about something in that ends up in the pink folder and they open up the pink folder. Expecting you know what I don't know bubblegum rainbows in good times and then all of a sudden there's anger anything in awe. It's just gonNA THAT'S GONNA BE. We're going to have to write up a report for that. Okay that's going to have to be looked at. We're going to have to figure out where where in the chain of command here. No one's going to get into trouble. This is a brand new system and we're not the kind of company that's going to. You know say you did this but we are going to try to figure out how to make it better and how to not have that happen again okay. So let's work on that. I think it's become very important in my day. Trying to establish Structures trying to establish good foundation. So like when I we've been putting up Lists in the house so when you wake up in a nice piece of paper and it says go potty Russia t make your bed right and then you know then go downstairs. Have some breakfast relax. And then we'll start the day right and that even dislike adding little things like that little constance or good for your brain because if your brain knows where it has to go it doesn't have to wake up and then think like what am I gonNa do now. It's like I'm just GONNA go potty. Brush not make my bed. Boom boom boom boom. Then every day you get into a rhythm and the rhythm and the rhythm and it's GonNa make you feel a little bit better. I think that's my theory now. There's variables right. Let's say you have Lunchtime on there and then you have got side in play and it's raining well then we're going to have to shift gears. Got To be flexible too. That's the thing when you have a system you don't want to be a rigid system right. A rigid system means it's not flexible. You WanNa have it so it can bend a little bit so it can so you can do other things too and and that allows you for the freedom to to move around a little bit right to be spontaneous spontaneous. You know what that means. It means Hey you're supposed to do this thing. Hey but do you want to do this thing? You're like I love to do that thing now. If there was a rigid system you wouldn't be able to. You'd be stuck doing the first thing but if we're a little bit flexible. Hey be spontaneous. Go do this other thing. That's okay do you do what you want? That's go have some fun. Loosen up live a little bit right within certain boundaries within certain you know structures it's all about structures What I like about structures is kind of what I was saying. It helps me to know what I'm supposed to do and then I can choose if I want to do it or not. Which is what I think you should do. Because you're awesome okay..

Black Teachers Wanted
"America is becoming more and more diverse every year and that means our schools are also also seeing increasing numbers of students of color but the trend isn't necessarily reflected in teachers across the country. Black students and other students of color rarely see the teachers who look like them and that can have serious consequences for their education and their future for the beginning of black history month. We wanted to play you. An episode from our archives that goes into the history of black teachers in America why gaps and representation among teachers persist to this day and what we can do to address this issue. Hi I'm Lizzie. Does he get era and misses the scholars strategy networks. No jargon each week we discussed an American policy problem with one of the nation's top researchers without jargon and and in this episode I spoke to Dr Michelle Foster. She's a professor. And the Henri Hauser Endowed Chair in urban partnerships at the University of Louisville and a former teacher in the Boston public school system. Here's our conversation Dr Foster thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for asking asking me. So you've conducted a lot of research on teaching but before that you were in the classroom yourself. Where did you start teaching? Well I started teaching in and the Boston public schools before desegregation which was in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and so the first year. I was a system wide substitute teacher which meant I taught in almost all of the schools. That would be in Boston. That would have you. That would have me and sometimes the schools that where I could manage. oftentimes the principal would come at recess. And if I was still there he said can you come. I'm back tomorrow because as you know. Substitutes often have difficulty with some classrooms and urban schools and then the second year I was a teacher at the William Monroe Charter school which was one of the first magnet schools in Boston. And can you tell US quickly. What a what is a magnet school? A magnet schools were schools that usually had themes And they were designed to help ease desegregation to have programs that might be a program in music. What theater with the idea that you would attract voluntarily Ellen Terry Lee attract white students to attend thereby making it easier to desegregate and Boston had magnet schools before actually the court order in nineteen seventy four? Lots of Cities Louisville has a magnet program. So I had a three four five combination at the charter school. which is we're not too far from where I lived? And then the next year I had a job. As a fifth grade teacher at the champlain. School which was in Dorchester. And tell me more about those experiences. What was that like working in the Boston? Public school system during that time. Well that was a time. When Boston didn't necessarily hire hire black or African American teachers black teachers tended to be segregated in predominantly African American or black schools? Boston would often have overcrowded. African American school bus them passed a under cry and under crowded white school to another overcrowded. Black school the charter school was of a magnet school. So it was is racially mixed but the champlain. School was probably predominantly baby. Ninety nine percent African American there was a school across way which was the John Marshall School and the schools were segregate they were in a cluster of schools. But the John Marshall's which was across Washington street at the time was predominantly white and my school was predominantly African American. We it was like today day. We have very few supplies not many many books. Hence Loretta Premium No Playground equipment was a place. Where if you want to be a successful teacher you had to be creative? And it's one of the places I learned. I think to be a good teacher. you know. If you don't have textbooks textbooks are good but you can do a lots of things if you don't have them so one of the things I used to do is take the textbook and cut up the story the reading story and put on cards and hand them out to the kids and then I read the first paragraph and I say who is that the next one and that solve off two problems one. If you've ever taught you realize kids don't follow along so they never really know what page you're on that solve. That problem and I realized later on that I was teaching sequencing using because in order to know what comes next. You have to listen so it is possible with not a lot of equipment or supplies to be creative in your teaching but but of course you have to WanNa be wanna be creative and I had not been prepared as a teacher you know. I didn't study teaching so I was left to my own devices. But what I thought would make sense for kids and part of my principal was to have them excited. I felt like if you came to school every day. It was like Christmas. was you'd WanNa come so of course. I was probably not your typical teacher and and I think that my kids probably made too much noise. The principal would always be knocking on my door as they were noisy. Because in those days I suppose even today silence and comportment comportment looking like your on task. Whatever that means? You'll you'll pay attention is kind of rules the day. But I wasn't that kind of a teacher. I would run and have racist with the kids. I would play kickball where I would throw the ball. And then the kids would have to give a multiplication table and they'd have to answer it and then kick so I tried to combine the physical Cole with intellectual. I had all kinds of little tricks that I did. I suppose even as a college teacher later on I have some of those. And how did those early experiences in the classroom GonNa Affect your later research. The research questions you wanted to explore. I don't think I thought too much about that. Initially it wasn't until I laid Iran. Iran started my academic and my first job was at University of Pennsylvania. And I would ask you to summer school courses and I decided to teach teachers perspectives on teaching. You know I just. I just thought it was a two week course. I went decide. I would use autobiographies or biographies of teachers on their own practice. And when I looked into the literature I found very few Accounts of black teachers about their own practice and so. I thought this is unusual because I knew enough to know that for most of history black students have been taught by black teachers right. I knew that so I was shot that there were no. They were not more accounts of their practice. Because I found a few and it on the basis of that. I decided that I would do a study that looked at life histories of black African American teachers. And that's how I got into that area I was led into it just circumstantially. It was not something I had planned to look at. And so tell us about what you found then. Well one of the things I was interested in was what were the experiences of black teachers and I was particularly looking at teachers who were who started. Arctic teaching before desegregation I knew the desegregation was a pivotal moment in the education of African American students. I didn't know what I find and so the earliest teacher who was the oldest oldest was born in one thousand nine five. She taught in polly's island South Carolina. And then I found teachers to a process I called community nomination which was to ask S. communities I made up that term made it up to nominate teachers who they thought were particularly successful and so I went around the country Texas I went to Missouri. Glory and these teachers and then for many many years I wrote academic articles about them. You know just what the teachers had to say was kind of used in the service service of making better big points in a lot of points and then at some point someone. The new press actually asked me if I would write a book and I wrote a book called Black Teachers on teaching and that was like I was ninety. Seven with a twenty interviews are actually you know not condemn not cut up their whole interviews and many of these teachers would teach who started in in segregated schools in Texas and then made the transition to working in the newly integrated desegregated schools in the south. So that's story that I I was pleased because later on many young African American teachers who came of age nineties and two thousands read that book and many of them have commented that the situation that I just got different than what they are today. So you have worked as a teacher both before and after desegregation you have studied sort of that transition and what. It's looked like for other teachers across the country. Let's talk about the situation right now. Do you know enough about the typical sort of American teacher. Fair to say what that person kind of looks like on average today. You know we do know that there are more male teachers at high school than Elementary School. Most of the teachers at elementary the are women and as it turns out. They are white women from suburban and rural communities who teach the population of teach of African American teachers. It has not changed that much over time. In fact I was at a conference not too long ago and although the numbers are increasing in other words number of people afterward teachers will be coming candidates and going into teaching positions. They have the highest attrition rate. They ended up leaving in greater numbers numbers than other teachers. And I think there are some reasons for that. Of course you know one of the reasons is that they often get assigned to the most difficult teaching conditions. I mean let's the honest people want African American teachers because I think that they will be good for African American children. And there's no doubt that that's probably the case but you know if they end up in a school whether or no supplies wear. There are a lot of difficulties and they're not going to likely to stay especially if they don't have support to make it so although we know that the number of African American churches increasing we also know that the number of relieving actually not even lasting three years is also increasing. So it's been a zero sum game. The numbers have not increased appreciably that much because of that and then let's talk about the benefits to students. What are the good things that having a teacher who may be looks like you and your community can afford to students? Well for a long time. People had this idea that was just the role model argument. The reason that African American children in a benefit of having african-american role model then in two thousand three. I think it was a man. Whose name is Thomas? D actually wrote a wrote an article. What he had done he looked at some old studies? Are these that had randomly assigned students and teachers which is very rare in education research. Because you can't resign randomly assigned teachers and students but there was one study and he realized it one of the things he found. Is that where you had a teacher match. When you had a black students who had black teachers have teachers? They actually improved in their standardized test scores scores and of course he had a hard time publishing it. Partly because you know sometimes things that can be positive and also have negative kickback. People thought what would happen if if if we could say that matching teacher and student on race was a good thing. I mean you could use that negatively as well so he was the first person to write that article and then recently there have been more articles that have come out that have shown that African American students who have African American teachers are more likely to graduate graduate. They're less likely to be suspended or punished. punitively they're more likely to be assigned to gifted and talented less likely to go to special the lead and a host of other
A Saner Mindset For Weight Loss
"Okay. So there's a typical pattern to weight loss. And if you've ever gone on a diet you've you've probably experienced it. Basically people lose weight for the first four to six months and then they hit a plateau and then slowly they start to regain some or all of the weight they lost and sometimes they end up heavier than they started. There are a lot of biological reasons. Why weight loss's hard and we talked about those in episode two of the skied but there are some things we can control to an extent and those are the strategies in mindset? We use when approaching weight loss. One problem is that a lot of weight loss strategy start like minded with fat cabbage soup diet or the Cayenne pepper diet. Yeah remember that Queen Bay or some other crazy fed diet like I wasn't planning to eat cabbage soup sue forever you know just until the weight came off but after about a month pizzas started to look real real good to me like whole pie. Good it's hard to be restrictive for a very long time. That's Gary Bennet. He's a psychology professor and obesity researcher at Duke University. And he told me there's research showing that people apple kind of rebound after being on a really strict diet even if that diets more bounce than what I did and naturally people start to move back into moderation and then sometimes that let's see goes into a little bit more consumption and then you know things get a little bit off track so what Gary and Jonni both tell their patients and this is take away number one things that are are not done for good in the name of weight management lead to temporary results. And that's not generally what people are looking for in other words keeping weight off long term. I'm only happens if you liked the lifestyle. Gets you to that weight so much so that you actually stick to it short term crash diets. They're really not sustainable. Unless you like the life you're living while you're losing your weight you're probably not going to keep living that way and as a consequence that weight that you lost we'll come back and it was that philosophical shift that led me to the practice. I suppose that I I run today. Which is focused not on particular body weight goals? It's it's not on the body mass index. It's not on particular diet but rather it's trying to work with patients as individuals to figure out the healthiest life. They honestly enjoy. So if you're looking to lose weight and you go to Yonis practice. The first thing he would tell you is to stop thinking about weight itself like that number on the scale. Just just don't worry about it. We don't aim people at any numbers whatsoever in our office as far as Pounds on a scale or body mass indices or body fat percentages or clothing sizes sizes. I think all of the numbers are risky risky because our bodies and our genes are all built differently plus our job demands are different. Our environments are different are caregiving responsibilities. Wants abilities are different and all of that can affect our weight loss efforts so aiming for a specific number can set a lot of up to fail that's why Yoni says takeaway number to forget goalwards instead. Focus on behavior goals the analogy. I'll use regularly in. My Office is one of school. So if you've got a kid in school you know that that Kid's best grade is going to be whatever grade. They get when they go to class do their homework and study their best but by no means does everybody trying their best in school. Get an a plus. That's not how it works. And so the goal setting needs to be around the going to class doing your homework and studying and also needs to be realistic. Yanni loves a good analogy analogy. And you're going to hear from him in this episode but in this case when he says doing your homework he means adopting healthy behaviors for example. He really recommends trying to cook at home or often as for Gary he gives his patients a simple list of changes they can choose from for instance. Stop sugary beverage. Consumption huge for most people reduce alcohol intake. No more than one drink per night ECHINACEA that's harder for me. Maybe you you know. Stop eating chips cookies and candy right this those three no fast food. Do you do like four or five of those and your. You'll get pretty close to that five hundred calorie deficit each day a calorie deficit. That just means you're taking in fewer calories and you burn and that's how you lose weight but the weight-loss isn't the focus here the idea. Is that making. These changes can make you healthier regardless of how much weight lose are even if you don't lose any weight at all in other words their goals worth pursuing in of themselves and they're less likely to make you obsessive of course changing. Our behavior is easier said than done and this gets us to take away number three. Don't try to overhaul your behavior all at once instead. Start Small and let those changes snowball when it comes to weight management specifically people are so keen to suddenly have a black belt that they forget to get a black belt. you start with a white belt and fall down a whole bunch. Dan Slowly slowly over time with a lot of repetition. You build a skill set and I think healthy living is the same and when people try to suddenly have a black belt without taking that time to build up to it you know. They usually struggle and stop for a lot of people. Union says a good place to start as to just figure figure out what you're eating. I think one of the first things a person can do just like they would be doing if they were unhappy with their bank balance at the end of every month trying to understand what their spending ending patterns look like would be a great first step and I think the same is true about eating patterns eating habits now I am a fan of using food. Diaries I realize is that it's not for everybody but doing it for a few weeks would be a very eye opening thing for a lot of people where people will be keeping track of what they're eating when they're eating how much they're eating now. Joni said food. Diaries are not for everyone. If you have a history of eating disorders or tend to become obsessive about counting calories stay stay away from them because the trigger you but if he can look at the data dispassionately without self judgment food tracking can help you get to know yourself and your habits. That's when you can start taking stock of what you may or may not be able to change for instance. Maybe there's a food you can cut back on a couple of years ago. I started tracking and and I quickly realized that I was poring about four hundred calories worth of creamer into my coffee every morning. That was really eye opening so I cut back and eventually we realized just a spoonful was enough but a lot of people do find tracking their food too tedious. Even carry does. That's why he tells his patients to track their goals calls instead. I once had a patient who just tracked every day. She got a day planner and just put a smiley face or a sad face on the day planner each day and if she thought she was doing doing pretty well hitting our goals at day she would have happy face if she wasn't she wrote a sad face and she's she did wonderfully and felt really good about our progress. And you know she would tell you I just look at the day. Planner Sir can figure out all the trends and there's another reason to focus on meeting smaller goals. They're actually achievable. So it sets you up to to be able to celebrate small victories. Gary Remembers one day when he walked into one of the health centers. You works at and one of his patients. Waived him over. This woman comes over and doc to DOC DOC DOC DOC and she was shaking this thing at me and I didn't know what was happening and I realized that she was shaking a pedometer. My faith and she was look at my steps. Look at my steps. I hit thirteen thousand thirteen thousand and then she immediately started vogue ing I mean. She dislikes all the model poses. And the whole thing and she's like look you how I lost some weight but I've still kept a Dachsie and I've got my Michelle Obama arms and just doing the whole thing and and so we sat and talked for they'll and she just followed these really simple goals one of the simple goals Gary likes to offer. His patients is brisk activity. This patient certainly embrace stat and accomplishing it. Capture motivated to keep going over time. You can work your way up to black belt level lifestyle changes if you want and what those are GonNa look different for different people. It could be cooking most of the food. You eat yourself or running a marathon or playing kickball with your kid after school. That's actually what my husband does Yoni says the key is to stick with the types of changes. You most enjoy

"You talked about how going to be talking about having a field day. You mentioned is that. Right. Well, remember the field day at school? Yeah. Of course, the potato sack races. Yeah. The relay racist is basically a day towards the end of the year in school. We'd always have a fun day. And that was where the field day was the best day ever. And I don't know if they still I don't really hear my daughter participate in that. I don't know if they do that anymore. I feel days now they do fire drills last sat down, and I wish fired. She got so scared. She was scared of the fire drill. So many of them. But I sat down the other day. And I jotted down many the different either games. We used to play field day or the playground equipment. We used to have. Okay. And try try to in my little head tie that into the financial world. Sure. Yes. See how good? I did. Yeah. And and how it really means something if you can understand the financial world with easy to understand items, it makes planning in the financial world a whole lot easier. That's right. So why do these analogies? Many times people say what the heck is he talking about? Well, if you listen and pay attention, maybe it will make sense. All right. So the field day in the financial world. Of course, we had the playground. The playground was when we went, and we had a lot of fun kickball member kickball now, I have no really analogy for kickball except that you'd ever wanted to get out. Right. You want to get the ball where the ain't hit him with the aims Yogi Berra used to say. And if you could do that consistently you voted the basis up, here's how it would start is the pitcher, and they would roll the ball towards the batter which was the guy or gal who kicked the ball. Right. Right. Well, it's one guy thought he could really kill the ball. I remembered he's a big guy too. He ran up to the ball, and he actually hit it. Just a little bit. And tripped himself and fell down the ball went fall. So he was swinging for the fences basically, and he didn't even get on I pay himself. So we see this a lot of times in the financial world where people are taking a lot of risk to try to hit that home run. And whereas there's there's a lot of different financial vehicles out there these days, it'll get you singles and doubles. Yeah. Without even having to swing for the fences and striking out, and so some of the money, and we call it the green money some money should be in green money that gives you a good return. But gives you lifetime income for the rest of your life. That's right. All right. So we have the swing on the playground member to swing set. Oh, I just had my little boy on a swing swings were fun. And you know, you could go back and forth and everything was fine. Now in the financial world some years, you're up some years or down swing right now. There was always the person. Again, there's always people abusing things right member. On the swing set. Now, sometimes they didn't have maker down. So you got a couple of tough guys on there. They were swinging real hard in the in the swing set was bouncing. Yeah. And then they would try to go all the way around and that didn't work too good either. They end up falling off. Got too close to the person when they were swinging back and forth. You got hit. See you have to be very careful on that. That is just taking too much risk or not realizing the risk you're taking if you walk in front of somebody on this. We have something called YouTube these days and every now, and then some it'll be videoing and somebody walking in front of a swinger and they get hit. That's right. Swing around the swing set. And so you have to pay attention to your surroundings. Don't you you do we really see this in the market these days where people assume everything is fine. Just because the market went up last year. They assume it's going to go up this year. Is that a true fact or a false fact, no absolutely also false statement? Would it be a false statement? Right. So then we had the monkey bars. Remember, the monkey bars absolutely hung from those. And you went from one to the other. Hopefully, not your feet weren't touched the ground. And hopefully, you go from one end to the other without without falling off. Yeah. The problem is and we see this when we get into a longer extended period of a bull market, you get tired and eventually you could fall off. So we are to the point. Now, we've had a long. Bull market. Are we going to continue to go? Are we going to be able to get from one side of the monkey bars to the other without falling off? We fall off weeks have to go back and start over again. It means you lose a lot of your money. That's right. So if there was a way where you could have someone help you down safely and lock in the distance. You've already gone that would make sense, wouldn't it? Although the monkey bars were all or nothing weren't they either either got done or you had to start over again. That's right. So if there was a advanced monkey bar, which you lock in your gains and start over again. Sometimes they were never glues. That'd be pretty absolutely dodgeball, dodgeball, even a movie about dodgeball. And you didn't want to get hit with the ball. Those were the that was the market forces aiming for you. And sometimes you did good and sometimes you didn't do too. Well, writing about this in my new book math over markets, and I've got oh thirty or forty different things in the financial tug of war. Now tug of war is the game. We had a bunch of big people a lot of times pulling on a rope. Right. Right. Well, we see this in the financial world these days because you have people now that benefit when the market goes down. It's called shorting the market. So you want the market to go up. You wanted to go far up up up. So you can have gains in your portfolio, but somebody else's hoping it goes down their forts a tug of war, isn't it. Yeah. Well, you know, coach I talked to friends and family a lot now that I've been working with you for quite a while now, and they'll ask me my opinion on different things. And it's amazing. How many of my friends and family just assume that a 4._0._1._K or some mutual fund? They're invested in is their total and complete retirement plan. And they're completely shocked when they realized that that is not the case. Yeah. One of the things I like to do with folks to sit down and do a worse case scenario planning. What does that mean? Well, we sit there and look at where you are right now. And we'll show you if certain things happens. What's the worst thing that could happen to your portfolio? So then we look ahead. We design a plan for retirement, we say, hey, we get to retirement we start getting that income from the money, we save do we want to have it fluctuate up and down or we wanna worst case scenario where zero is the worst thing that could ever happen. Or do we want a certain amount of income that we know we'll never get anywhere. Less than that. We could get more every year, but will never get any less than a certain amount of income throughout our lives. Husband and wife, it's called income planning. Does that make sense? Yes. Should make sense to anybody out there who wants to retire with certainty of knowing what they're going to get. So if you're interested in that the worst case.

"Marc and Melinda, be. Sure to join us again at two right after rush. Rush. Will have a full analysis of all of the key election results from last night I'm sure he'll lead. Off with a special congressional race. In Columbus Ohio the one where we're still waiting for the final, count absolutely the Republican in that race has a very, slim margin and, they still have to count. The provisional ballots that's about thirty. Four hundred ballots the Republican has a lead of just about one percent. Right. Now and I like to judge a candidate on their policies. Their voting record their ideas not on looks This this this. Guy. In Ohio Republican kind of seemed like a dud, when. It, comes to presence on the stage did you see a guy now so. He, just didn't seem very dynamic dynamic not charismatic and, last? Night and Saturday night he looked like they, just woke him up from a deep sleep and brought him out on the stage did you. See that he's more go get her behind the scenes and maybe, he's just not a good in in front of the camera, type person maybe so he's got the lead right now and probably will win this one. But they'll meet again in November this is just a serve until, November. Right just to see who's on the ballot in November. Right. No to fill out the rest of this term of the congressman who quit oh so it's not even. To make the next term right. This is just a fill out this term and then he and. The democrat will meet again in November to do it, all over again, and they, will vote on The two year full house term I didn't realize that I thought it was just a seat. Get on the ballot for November and the New York Times says the very fact that Democrats are within one. Percentage point of winning this one it's. Been a red seat for thirty five years is a huge. Ominous signal to Trump for November so stay. Tuned for more on that one we'll keep you up to date This is Joe in east Austin he's. Got a comment about the APD dodgeball. And kickball games in east. Austin tonight hey Joe how're. You how y'all doing this morning doing great sir welcome thank you sir I'm just calling him a dodgeball. Game I mean I was born and raised there and in the east side and to me I mean that. They don't even play dodgeball in school. Anymore and we used to play I wouldn't talk and high. When tomorrow so we used to play you. Always talk trash after and before The game Like what you, said nowadays, you know it's everything's something like that it would be wrong and that's why I don't play it in high school or even, junior high but to me that. To me that. Sounds great but what they should do is go ahead and mix the, teams up then it really. Wouldn't matter, I mean then now, you're, saying okay now the police are trying to go in there and do something because we're. Making team so wherever wins or loses if they're gonna be trash, talking afterwards Dokie, or whatever then sure on billionaires and losers on both sides A lot of. People are, suggesting that Joe and, yeah, they may end up doing that tonight I think that would be to me that would. Be the best way to go just you know mixed teams up, and and let, him have fun I mean that that to me They're trying to do something. Just like what you say they're they're kind of going, to the community and show that hey. Look we're here for y'all you know any any anything you'll have to stay or you, want talk, about you know we can do it after the. Game you have a good one Have a good one Joe start that line of communication somehow, Robert in, north Austin you're on with Marc and. Melinda quick comment please Robert Yeah I I agree with Joe, mixing up the teams. That'd be great but really what we need to see as a team building for not something that's against one another some kind of competition but there, are ways to bridge these cultural gaps and things like. That with team building activities in schools all the time in, order to bridge gaps what would be a, good, example One one thing that kids can do like a four by four square they're giving giving, some sort of past. Like pour some water from from one Cup to the center of their that nobody is allowed to enter the center and then you add one one, other thing on top of that The two people or. Three people or four people. That are using the bungee cords or whatever they're given. Are blindfolded so then they have to have some sort of teamwork. In order to accomplish a goal all right Gotcha Robert maybe that'll be for next summer the next summer concert series that they have could be there's a lot to cover we'll continue.
