Probably a point-and-shoot digital camera with built-in HD video. My last digital camcorder had the HD part nailed but it sucked for still photography. My current candidate is the Sony DSC-W290.
The gadget at the top of my wish list is a kindle or a Sony Reader. If I can download Word documents onto the Kindle, then I’d rather have a Kindle. But I haven’t researched all that yet.
1. Your Diet Is a Bank Account. ”Eating should be treated like a bank account - if one day you decide that you want to have chocolate cake for breakfast, you can, because there’s no ‘No,’ but you need to account for it. If you spend in one place, you need to save in another.”
2. The Differential. ”In the differential, you can have turkey chili and meat chili. To me, the differential between the two isn’t that big. I would just as soon have turkey chili as I would meat chili. But there’s a huge differential for me between a piece of plain grilled chicken breast and a fatty piece of New York steak. Go for it when the differential is really great to you.”
3. The Point of Diminishing Return. ”For example, if you order fried calamari, you taste it, it’s delicious, have another bite, dip it in the sauce, it’s delicious, but then there’s a point where it’s as good as it’s ever going to get. And that’s when you stop.”
4. Downsize. ”We have unrealistic portions in this country and you can order an appetizer as your main course. No matter if you’re eating broccoli or fried chicken - it’s good to get into the habit of leaving a little.”
Bethenny Frankel’s 4 rules make sense. It’s nothing new, but it’s put in a way that resonates with me, at least.
