Me and my tight hips.

OK...Got the goals, now for a plan to achieve them. (Thanks to Rick for the reminder)

Flexibility and Breathing: Shinbox Switches. I'm going to have to be religious about them. Morning, at work, after work, before bed. 50. Breathing deeply in and out with each movement.

Eating better: I'm going to spend even less time in the middle aisles of the grocery store and more on the perimeters. Getting a copy of "The Flavor Bible" has helped me make some serious headway in preparing vegetables in ways that best presents their flavor (tonight is roasted broccoli with basil, chives, garlic, lemon and shrimp and a little parmesean...very fun). It's a good challenge that works out my cooking muscles too.

The Flavor Bible...I'll have to check that out.

It's an amazing book, Skinny. It's basically a collection of a few great chefs' perspectives on taste, an explanation of the elements of taste, then a reference manual on different ingredients, listing which foods/cooking methods go well with them. No recipes, just combination ideas. Crazy potential for creativity.
