Morning Edition - 6/7/06

Men and Eating Disorders
Approximately six percent of all documented cases of anorexia belong to males. Unfortunately, society does not readily recognize anorexia in males and doesn’t see the problem as one needing attention. What’s worse, most men suffering from anorexia refuse to seek treatment or don’t recognize the problem. At least one in every ten people suffering from an eating disorder is male. Anorexia is a disease characterized by the irrational fear of getting fat or gaining weight. Victims of the disease severely restrict their food intake and normally increase their exercise and activity. All said, with the issue of body image at the forefront during the summer months, it’s important to realize that unhealthy eating habits are not the answer to your “growing” problem.

Hold the Cheese in Africa?
The African countries of Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia will begin making circumcision more accessible to males in response to a study that showed circumcised men were 60% less likely to contract HIV. Uganda and Kenya are holding their own study of 8,000 men to determine if their male citizens will make the cut.

Noah’s Arc; Catch-up Before Season 2
August 9, the second season of Logo Channel’s Noah’s Arc premieres. Yes, I must pause here. For all the program detractors, let me just say, that Noah’s Arc can be cheesy, but the boyz on this show are dreamy. Noah’s Arc is groundbreaking in that it is the first gay sitcom that features an all men-of-color cast. Tonight at 10 p.m., the second episode of the first season – featuring the introduction of my future husband Wade – to the gang, is on Logo. Don’t miss it. The entire first season goes on sale, June 19.

On Blast
This summer is about having fun. This summer I promise to ____________!
…just fill in the blank and be sure to hold yourself to it. Hey, you have until Labor Day.

Keep passin’ the open windows…

I promise to take more time out to be with the kids. I promised to take more time to enjoy the peaceful loniless that I find on my deck. I promise spend more time with friends and not just people I find in the bars. I promise, oh Ma, I promise....

I promise to hit the beach at least once every two weeks and to really enjoy outdoor activities. I promise to really enjoy the fruits of my labor – that is, wear what I want. What is the point of working out if I can’t bust-out with the daring and fun outfits I enjoy wearing in the heat? Get ready NY, the b*tch is back!

Hector looks amazing. Even my kids think he does. My son Bryan - who plays basketball aand is very athletic - said "Did you see how cut up he was?" So Cocoa baby....I think you should WORK IT DAMMIT!

Cocoa Rican said...

Thank you Cas baby...it started out as a way to drop a few pounds and has turned into a really fun and interesting sculpting game. I love that I feel great in my skin today.

Just Me...my prancing around outside that closet is what keeps freaks like you on point. Or would that be "wanting" that point. LOL :)

This summer I am going to focus on what I want to do rather than what everyone else wants to do.
