They are boxes full of crisps. I don't know how Americans refer to them, but they are not very healthy.

When the crisps have been consumed, I chuck a load of books in the boxes and put it in the loft.

I have been banned from keeping books in the living room ???

I can't post my abs.  It's in my modelling contract.  Imagine chiseled abs... (That's what they could be at least).... and then coat those precious abs in a protective layer of cellulite. 

I wouldn't follow that Costco book Mayla.  You're supposed to eat less as the day goes on. There's less active time to digest the food and use the energy.  If you eat more for supper, what's not used turns into fat.


I think crisps might be potato chips.

Besides, I think you're just being a contrarian.

Am not.   ::)

I'm not.  You're supposed to eat less and less as the day goes.  Eat breakfast like a king.  Lunch like a prince.  Supper like a pauper.  If you eat a lot just before bed there's much less chance to use the calories.  If you ate the food at the beginning of the day, you've got the rest of the day to burn off those calories.


My abs are like sculpted marshmallows.... that have a melted a little.

I know that one.... I like to have all the CDs and books I am interested in at any one moment ready to grab. Pile here, pile there...
Problem is, putting them away aint easy. Book shelves: groaning (can't collapse though, as long as the rungs below stay as full as they are). Table: chockablock. Various closets: inside full, top loaded almost to the ceiling. Loft: as much as I dare without creating a serious war.

As for shape, let's say I have one. Some are build for speed, some for comfort. I call mine aerodynamic.  ;D

If you're continually eating less than a thousand calories a day, you have to be starving.  I think 1500 cal/day is low.  1800 is ok.  2000 is ok.  I think.  I haven't thought about it for awhile.  And if you're exercising that's more. 

There's no way you could keep that up.     Although it's "total so far."  I see.  750cal/day would be something like losing a pound a day and feeling very hungry all the time. 


I'm wondering if I'm getting fatter or just flabbier... or both or neither.

Yes, sure ... *eats one last bite and hands Goldentone almost all of it*  :)

I found them on Amazon.  They do look yummy. :)

Thank you!  When you're ready, just ask me and I'll whip up my famous New Orleans Steak with cheese and mushrooms and rice.

I like to have all the CDs and books I am interested in at any one moment ready to grab. Pile here, pile there...
Problem is, putting them away aint easy. Book shelves: groaning (can't collapse though, as long as the rungs below stay as full as they are). Table: chockablock. Various closets: inside full, top loaded almost to the ceiling. Loft: as much as I dare without creating a serious war.
"What do you ever want to do with all that junk!!??". <sigh> :P
The answer is very simple; move to a larger house that has sufficient space to accommodate at least 50% more books, CDs and the like than you have now. At least it's easy to store suich things in the Netherlands, being so flat as it is, an' all...

As for shape, let's say I have one. Some are build for speed, some for comfort. I call mine aerodynamic.  ;D
I do, too, for what it may (or rather more likely may not) be worth; however, as I've long since forgotten (if indeed I ever knew in the first place) what it is (or was supposed to be) built for, I can only assume that it was built principally for sitting at the composition desk and working.

Pretty much the same as any other reasonably large desk; the purpose of my use of the term was merely to specify the use to which I would put such a desk.

Ah, but then I would in less then no time HAVE 50% more books, CDs and whatnot! At least now I must think before I get something (like "where am I going to put it???")
Putting a constantly hungry fat man in front of a bigger table full of goodies aint gonna help, ya know!
Not all of the Netherlands is flat, d'ya know, the roads can be quite un-flat (Jonathan Powell even wrote a piece about it, probably after crying "be flat!!" after speedbump no. 24.572)

Built quite well then, considering the results! Still, you got some sitting to do before you go past Peter Bares' op. 2578 (and that aint his last work!). ;)

OK, so just change the percentage to a more appropriate one, then!

But there is no evidence that you are such a man and, in any case, the "goodies" here need to go on shelves rather than tables!

No, I do know that, for all that someone who used to be based there once told me that he lived in the mountains and, when question about this, stated that the mean average altitude of his garden was at least 5cm greater than those of his neighbours. As to the relevance of "B flat" here, I am reminded that many Netherlanders settled in South Africa and, several months ago, when so much of part of that country resounded to the incessant B flattery of the egregious vuvuzelas, the pitch of these things might well have been imported from the Netherlands originally...

Many thanks - but I suspect that I'd long since have ceased to sit anywhere by the time of reaching an opus number much in excess of one-fiftieth of that tally!

The highest point in The Kingdom of The Netherlands is at 877meters above sea level. So I guess the man you have that statement from must have lived on the island of Saba!

I had to actually think what you referred to here, so that tells you something about me! The vuvuzela's rang a bell though. The only pitch I would desire in conjunction with vuvuzela's would be buckets full of it, tipped into the rotten things. Grrr!

Hmm, since I know you have reached at least Opus 47, and 1/50th of Bares' tally as printed would be Opus 51, I hope you are wrong! Remember, Havergal Brian was not all that much younger when he finished his Gothic Symphony (No. 1 of 32), and Elliott Carter was some decades older than you when he wrote his first opera! Although I do think that, unless I'm much mistaken, having to wait until you write your first opera would need some advances in medicine (such as finding an immortality elixer), and possibly the rewriting of some basic cosmic laws... But a Symphony no. 1 from you, ah, now that would be worth waiting for!!

We spell him Croesus over here in UK, but whilst I may not actualyl consider you to be so rich I would like to think that you were so!

Now I do not suppose that there is any connection between this Netherlands Antillean island and the passage beginning Or, gloire au seul vivant... from La Reine de Saba et divers autres contes (1918) by Joseph Charles (aka Jean-Charles) Mardrus (orig. Mardrossian), which a certain Parsi composer appended to his score of the Jami Symphony (1942-51), but it's a neat coincidence nevertheless...

Oh, indeed - those things and much more besides!

But a Symphony no. 1 from you, ah, now that would be worth waiting for!!
Well, that's a very kind thought which is much appreciated but, since I'd have immense trouble in imagining it translating itself into reality, I fear that Sinfonietta, Op. 34 (an attempt to condense a 4-movement symphony of some 40 minutes duration into a single-movement one of around 10) will just have to do for the foreseeable future!

The fact that this thread seems now to have assumed a quite different "shape" from that which it had originally acquired is surely an example of what can happen when people go off-topic...

Hmm, I would guess the book is about the Queen of Sheeba, but even the French Wikipedia has only one Saba spelled as such, so who knows!? It looks like a lovely and very tropical island, and would, I think, the "tropic atmosphere" of quite a few of that Parsi composer's work! See image!

Your guess would indeed be correct (although they spell it Sheba over here).

Indeed so! Maybe you could acquire a nice house there large enough to accommodate all the books and CDs that you're ever likely to acquire!...

More coffee weight loss ideas...

Drink coffee.  Then drink more coffee so you're full.

Drink the "bottom of the pot" coffee with some grounds in it.  Get nauseous.  Then you're not hungry anymore.

So you desire my relocation to what is basically a tiny rock in the middle of the sea several thousend kilometers away, to find a new home in the only town on it (aptly(?) named "The Bottom"), assuming I make it there at all (it has the shortest commercial landing strip in the world). Whatever for? In the hope they may not have Internet there?.... ;)

Foods:

Dinner:   salad and a mexican thing ... (500)

Whomever would suggest I'd use a calculator next to my meal to count the calories would be kindly advised to put his/her calculator in the nearest spot available where the Sun does not shed any light on. Or in. He/she may use a mallet, if need be.  ;D

Well, not really, of course - unless you were to use it as a holiday home only.

Whomever would suggest I'd use a calculator next to my meal to count the calories would be kindly advised to put his/her calculator in the nearest spot available where the Sun does not shed any light on. Or in.
It wouldn't have to be a solar powered calculator, then, would it?! - and I think that you have identified that spot in your first paragraph...

He/she may use a mallet, if need be.
Ah - music for mallet instruments and all that; not so inappropriate in the circumstances, perhaps, since indulgence in some of these very strictly calorie-controlled diets might well invite quite abit of repetition in several stomachs...

Today:

Workout:
Nice walk (even w/doggy!)
Tricep:  25 lbs.  ♪♪♪

Food:

Breaky:  Oatmeals  (300)
Lunch:   Salad and Apple w/PB  (300)
Snack:   FiberPlus bar (130) and Fruit Roll (50)
Snack:
Dinner:

Total:
Just don't forget to be Mayla! All this working out and low calorie thing is all very fine, but it's not the end of the world, you know!

You'd probably be horrified by my lack of care for calorie counting and working out anything other than compositional problems but, whilst I am almost certainly not as physically fit as you are, I can still manage to do what I do...

Best,

Yes, you are right, sometimes I do get caught up into things.  Once in awhile I take a break from the regime, just because I need that mental break.  I will say, cultural and artistic issues aside as it relates to the female body, I feel a personal desire and need to be more physically fit than I am.  And, if I didn't feel a personal need to count calories, I wouldn't, but for now it serves a very distinct purpose in my life.

I find I very much need physical activity, it's just extremely important in my life and even though sometimes I feel like I don't have time to do my half an hour walk, even, I find it really helps me overall if I do, even when I feel like I don't have time.  I am about to go outside and lay in the sun because my head isn't letting any more into it and I need to find some kind of mental peace about things.  I still recognize when I need to do something like that :).
Then that's OK!

I counted calories for awhile.  You can slowly ween yourself down on food and then you don't have to exercise as much to lose weight.

And once in awhile it's shocking how many calories some things are.  I remember something I was thinking about buying but it was 900 calories in a serving.  Although it did taste really good too.... I just wasn't aware I had eaten that many calories when I ate it in the past.  No more.
