J-Day - The 135th Day

Prosciutto & Goat Cheese Tomato Islands

Dear Ladies and Gents,

Several months ago one of our fellow LC menu bloggers (Vadim) made the outrageous suggestion that I should be a guest on Jimmy Moore's podcast show.

If you know Vadim, you know that he's got a heart of gold. I naturally appreciated his vote of confidence but his idea seemed extremely far-fetched. My reservations didn't dissuade Mr. V however. He went on to present my case directly to Jimmy. Soon after, much to my surprise, I received an e-mail from Mr. Moore himself. He actually wanted to have me as a guest on his program! Crazy!

The interview that's posted as today's podcast is the result of these wacky and unexpected turn of events. Please keep in mind that our chat was conducted back in January. That may be reflected in some of my statements (about weight, my exercise routine, etc.). To be honest, I was talking to Jimmy for nearly 50 minutes and I don't recall everything that we discussed. I just know that I had a good time and that Jimmy treated me with the utmost kindness and respect.

I also want to take this opportunity to share with you all another project that I've been working on for the past several months. It's a natural health website that I'm a partner/writer on. It mainly deals with issues relating to alternative and integrative medicine but it also reflects the dietary path I've chosen to follow. The name of that site is: HealthyFellow. I invite you all to visit any time and feel free to participate in any way that you'd like.

Update: Exercise Stats - Time: 65 minutes. Distance: 3.79 miles. Speed: 3.0 - 4.0. Incline: 3.0 - 5.0. Warm Up & Cool Down: Walking to and from the gym.

Finally, today is my typical "weigh in" day. So without further delay, here are my stats:

Harry said...

Thanks, Sybil.

It was a good week at the scale. :-)

I hope you enjoy the 'cast!

Vadim said...

cant wait to listen to it tonight when I get back home after work. You are truly inspirational and your story touches and i am sure will continue to touch many. Keep it up, great work! And by the way you gave me way too much credit. You deserve it more than anyone with your humor, humble attitude and very informative menus.

Harry said...

I believe the credit I gave you is justified! :-)

Thank you for kind words and view of me, Vadim. I appreciate it and I'll certainly try to contribute something positive to our LC community.

I hope you enjoy the show. I'm waiting to listen to it with my wife. Hopefully we'll have a chance later tonight.

I'm behind on my LC blogs. I know you posted something new. I shall visit your site as soon as I'm able! I need my Vadim fix! :-)

I've been waiting on this day for quit awhile now and then couldn't listen to it tonight. SHOOOT!!!
Tomorrow will be rough fitting it in as well. I hope you were pleased with it. I'm sure it will be a big hit.

Harry said...

I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet either, Jo!

I want to hear it first with my wife and we've not yet had that chance ... we're both crazy busy!

I hope it'll be a hit (or at least not a complete miss" as I don't want to let Jimmy down. Fingers crossed.

Erika said...

Thanks a lot, Deborah!

I tried my best. It's not an arena I'm used to but Jimmy was very warm and helped me through it. :-)
