Dealing with cravings and Brain Exericse

Tried out this recipe today. Its Oh so good. Definitely will deal with my cravings for Lemon Meringue ( I never eat the top of the meringue). Got it on the Somersize Board run by BetsC from Looks Aren't Everything:

Preheat oven to 350.

1/2 C plus 2 T vanilla whey powder
2 1/2 T sugar (I use WL)
5 T butter

Melt the butter and mix all three ingredients in an 8x8 cooking pan.
Press down on the bottom of pan. I use a spoon to 'even' it out.
Cook for 5 minutes.

8 oz. cream cheese
3/4 C sugar-again whey low
3 eggs
1/2 C lemon jc.

Cream sugar and cream cheese together with mixer. Add eggs one at a
time, mix well each time. Add lemon jc. Mix until well combined.

Pour over warm crust and cook for 20 minutes. Let it cool, and then
refrigerate until cold.

Well I decided to have a rest day. I did try out a few minutes of T-Tapp from You Tube. I am very interested in Brain Gym - Left-Right Brain for learning etc....... I am so adding this to my wish list of DVD's.

"What can T-Tapp hoe downs do for you?
• Increase mental clarity
• Help control hormonal mood swings often experienced with PMS and menopause
• Drop glucose levels quickly. (From 62 to 85 points upon completion and an average rate up to 100 points at 10 minutes post completion
• Burn off excess glucose before it converts to fat.
• Optimal brain balance, because hoedowns involve simultaneous left/right brain cognitive processing. Because of this, initial coordination doing the single count lift/touches from front to side can be challenging, but within a week cognitive processing significantly improves. It is important to exercise the brain as well as the body for quality of life in senior years.

Hoedowns are really aerobic AND they work your legs, butt, core, lats and abs all at once, (and if you're really twisting those thumbs back and getting your elbows forward you'll feel it in your arms as well!) So try Hoe Downs once or twice a day and see what they do for you."

Well, that is amazing...and a little bit humorous. But yes, I'm going to try it because it looks and sounds intriguing. Thanks for the tip!
