Another random tidbit hit me yesterday. I was listening to the TV while I was sorting laundry, and I heard someone say that lack of sleep can cause carbohydrate cravings. Perhaps that partially explains why I am always foraging for bread products in the afternoon. I don't sleep more than 3 really good hrs. per night, so theoretically I should be craving loaves of bread and piles of pasta, right? Well, truth be told, I am looking for Cheetos by the truckload, but since I have stopped buying them, I have to settle for more mundane carbs. I found this info interesting, but also wondered if I tried really, really hard, could I find a justification for just about any bad craving I might have? I decided that I most certainly could.
My dancing program is going quite nicely. I'm having fun, and find myself laughing quite a lot as I prance dopily around the house. Then, this morning, while reading the paper, I see an ad for a local hospital....they are advertising a "Dance your way to heart health" program. I wonder if they got the idea from me. Should I sue for royalties? I have to admit, I kinda felt a bit of self righteousness when I saw the class advertised. I am just such a trend setter. They are advertising the fact that they will be including all sorts of dances....just like me. They will be playing music from all eras....just like me. They will not be teaching specific moves and dances, except for one session of Irish Step dancing....just like me (kinda). Yep, I think they stole my brilliant "Plan". But being the great humanitarian that I am, I will share this concept with the rest of the city because helping people get heart healthy is where it's at. I am such a giver.
