To Bagel or Not to Bagel, That is the Question


I read a New York Times article this week about slim and trim actresses purporting to regularly eat unhealthy but oh so good food where and when they want.  Especially when they meet interviewers from glossy magazines for a meal!  The article considers whether or not the meals really are an accurate representation of the women’s typical eating habits.  And considers the possibility that the unhealthy but oh so good meal is ‘just part of the show’ to convince fans that they are just like the rest of us.



Wondering now…what do you think, do you buy it?  That they can really do this on a regular basis and look the way they do?  If you’d like to read the article, please click here .



Similar claims by rich, famous, ‘fabulous and fit’ women who are ‘just like the rest of us’ but whose bodies, faces and lives magazines want us to emulate include:
“I don’t exercise regularly.”
“I don’t have a nanny.”
“I’ve never had botox or plastic surgery.”



Not all models and actresses make these claims and are truly honest when granting interviews.  And, for sure, some women are certainly telling the whole truth when they make these types of statements.  But what about the majority?



Well I can’t speak for others.  And am certainly not rich and famous so am not putting myself in anyone’s shoes.



But I am a woman.  I have a body.  And I know what it takes to keep my body fit, mind clear and illuminate from within.  To be energetic!  To accept the loose, stretched out skin from two c-section operations regardless of how fit I am.  (The only way that is ever going to go away is by going under the knife.  Not going go happen!) I am aware of the internal and external environments that work for me and allow my days and life to manifest magically the way they do.  So, here, I’ll speak for myself.  And am curious as to what you really do to look, feel, be your best for yourself smile






Happy Valentine’s Day from BollyFit! ‘Hug O’ War’


Dear Friends,
Here’s a fav poem of my kids by Shel Silverstein from Where the Sidewalk Ends.  Sums up February 14 and, hopefully, every day!  Thanks to dear friend, Iran, for the book.  Enjoy….



Hug O’ War
I will not play at tug o’ war.
I’d rather play at hug o’ war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.
Shel Silverstein
