Living in Morgan Hill off the beaten path in Uvas Canyon was amazing. Country life on the edge of Silicon Valley. Lots of clients came out here to be photographed for professional portraits. One day, I finally got my two loves out and captured them both together. Best friends.
Finn is a STUD!
No wait. He's a gelding. I mean, he is a Stud Muffin.
Shoot. He was a stud muffin. Still think about him all the time.
My muse. My top model. There should be a show called the next top horse! Who would win? An Arabian? Somehow I started an entirely new career because of this guy. He went lame for endurance after surgery (but not trail riding) and told me he had an idea. He said I'm so pretty and photogenic you know. I agreed. Yes, yes, Finn, you are super hot!
I said, Well, I do know photography from my dad but I'm not that good and not talented like him. Finn said, don't be silly, you got me and that's all you need. Look at me! His long flowing mane and tail and big white butt. So damn handsome! I did need a break from pharmaceutical sales so WTH!
Read all about him in the upcoming "The Adventures of Hot Wheelz, the Horse". Finn is Part 2. As soon as I proof read an actual copy of the book, we are LIVE! Amazon says its coming this week.
Water appears to be a potent weapon for dieters. A University of Washington study found that one glass of water halted nightime hunger pangs for almost 100 percent of subjects. Try it with a squeeze of lemon or lime.
Researchers at the University of Washington found that a diet that is 30 percent protein helped a group of overweight subjects lose more fat—an average of eight pounds each in three months. It turns out
that the protein helped suppress appetite and boost metabolism. The subjects ate about 440 fewer calories per day thanks to an increase in protein. That could be one more reason a moderate-carb, higher-protein diet works so well at helping the body shed fat.
How much protein do you eat per day? Are you doing Paleo, Keto, or just keeping it simple by eating with the seasons like me? I like eating what is best for me and maybe not everyone else.
