Dear Oprah: Yes! I DO want to reclaim my "best life"!
I haven't watched Oprah for years, but I'll be tuning in this week and maybe even recording the shows to watch again later. Why? Because she's got a bunch of shows I can really use!
After admitting to the world that her weight has crept back up to 200 lbs. (although if a celebrity says they weigh 200 lbs., really they weigh at least 220 lbs. - trust me on this), she's getting back on that wagon and taking that fat bull by the horns.
Here's the rundown for her "Best Life Week," day by day:
Monday, Jan. 5: Your Weight. To get back on track, Oprah talks about her diet, workout plan, and ways to put yourself back on the priority list. Her workout guy Bob Greene stops by to help us all out of a rut. I just joined a gym, so I'm completely on-board with this one.
Tuesday, Jan. 6: Dr. Oz and the Ultimate Checklist. I'm not always enthralled when Dr. Oz comes on talking about poop and showing pictures of colons, but he's always got some good tips to share and lots to think about. He'll review eight "lifesaving numbers," the tests you need to take, the right foods to eat, and more.
Wednesday, Jan. 7: Finding Your Spiritual Path. I'm doing pretty well in this area, but let's face it, life just loves to throw wrenches into our perfectly planned lives, so who among us can't use a little Life 101 lesson? Oprah talks to experts about how to stay connected and grounded.
Thursday, Jan. 8: Your Money Plan 2009. I can only take so much of today's guest, Suze Orman, but I'll tune in. She'll talk about what to do with your money, when to do it, and how to do it. If she explains how to get a million dollars to fall out of the sky on my head, I'll be really happy.
Friday, Jan. 9: Relationships, Intimacy and Sex. Uh ... hmmm ... I might actually skip this one unless I'm feeling really randy and want to know more about the lessons, treatments and special "tools" they're going to talk about. Hey, you never stop learning, right?!
