Billy Gillman Comes Out in Youtube Video


Citing Ty Herndon as inspiration yesterday... Billy Gillman filmed a video and uploaded it to YouTube. He is also gay.



Billy claims the fact that he is gay has kept him from signing a major record deal. If that's true, that is sad and unacceptable.

Below is Billy's biggest hit. You may remember it. It's called "One Voice".

Ty Herndon has come out of the closet! Read the entire story from People Magazine HERE.

Here's a couple of my favorite Ty Herndon songs from the 90's:





Good for you, Ty. I support your courage and hope you can be a role model to any young people who are struggling with feeling different.

Fitz's Brown Bag Turkey Recipe

Here is the recipe I talekd about on the air today:

Ingredients

• 1 (18 -20 lb) whole turkey
• 2 stalks celery (roughly chopped)
• 1 carrots (roughly chopped)
• 1 onions (cut into quarters)
• 3 -4 crushed garlic cloves
• Olive oil

Directions

1. Take everything out of the turkey. There will be a giblet bag and some other stuff.

2. Next add vegetables to the inside of the turkey. You don't even have to peel anything. This is easy because the veggies are just for flavor — you are going to throw them away later.

3. Take the onion and cut it into quarters.

4. Chop a nice long carrot.

5. Do the same with a couple stalks of celery.

6. Add several cloves of garlic that you mash between a broad kitchen knife and the kitchen counter.

7. Throw it all inside the turkey.

8. Then rub the turkey all over with olive oil — not butter because butter usually has salt in it and salt is the enemy of a moist turkey. Make sure the whole bird is covered in olive oil.

9. Put the turkey in a roasting pan and cover it with a large brown paper bag.

10. Staple shut. If you have a huge turkey use two paper bags at each end. It wont stick to the bird because of the olive oil.

11. Sprinkle the bag all over with water.

12. Place into pre-heated 375 F oven. ON THE MIDDLE RACK.

13. The bag wont burn because paper burns at 451 and we're at 375 degrees.

14. The advantage of the brown paper bag over the Reynolds cooking bag is that the paper breathes so the turkey ROASTS. In the Reynolds bag the turkey STEAMS, giving it a different taste.

15. Roast for 13-15 minutes per pound.

16. When you think it's ready, shove a meat thermometer through the bag and into the turkey and give it a minute to register. Make sure it doesn't touch the bone.

17. The thermometer should register between 163-170 degrees.

18. Remove from oven, cut away the bag and remove the basting pan.

19. Do not throw out the drippings!

20. To make the gravy, strain the pan juices into a really big pot. Any juices that accumulate on the turkey platter get poured into the pot.

21. Add six oz. of boiling chicken broth and 1/8 cup of cornstarch to the gravy to thicken it up. Cook on low heat and stir and cook and stir.

22. If it seems it isn't going to be thick enough, add a little more cornstarch.

23. That's it! Happy Thanksgiving

#ThrowbackThursday - The Skinny On Ellen


It's always humbling to look back and see how far I've come on this weight loss journey. Sure, there's Weight Loss Wednesday posts but in honor of #ThrowbackThursday, let's rewind to post #7 where my trainer gives an inside look at what it's like to actually workout with me...

***

My opinion is skewed. This weight loss journey is my story but I thought it'd be fun for you all to get an unfiltered perspective from the woman sees it all, my trainer Karen.

Karen After

"What on earth am I getting myself into?" That was the first thing I thought as I waited for Ellen to show up for our first meeting. I had never listened to the radio show but a good friend and former client emailed me and told me I HAD to reach out and talk to Ellen. When I listened to the clip from her show, every hair on my body stood on end and I just knew this was someone I could work with and help. I only ever take on clients that I feel I can truly make a difference for and she most definitely fell into that category.

"I hate running, I won't jump, I hate cardio." Way to make a good first impression with your potential new trainer! (Hence my, "What on earth am I getting myself into?" thoughts.) At first I worried that Ellen might be one of many people out there who think that just because they have a trainer and shop at Whole Foods or Trader Joe's that they should be losing weight like there's no tomorrow. I was so relieved when she proved me wrong.
