John had a night where he ordered pizza and wings and is trying to find some of what Janet Jackson sings about, Control!

Emily has a list of fun new ideas she’s tried the past week to get happy, get cooking, and get warm.

We really go off on some tangents this week, but John has decided to bring more energy to the show, and Emily tries to remember her pun skills.

Get ready because this episode is a little off the walls!

Meet Your Hosts:

  • John Bukenas is a podcast editor from New Jersey. He started the podcast doing keto and intermittent fasting, but is now gearing up for bariatric surgery (probably) later this summer.
  • Emily Prokop is a podcast editor and consultant from Connecticut. She has been doing Intermittent Fasting since April 2018 and has lost about 70 pounds. She started with 16:8 and is now doing 18:6.

In This Episode:

  • John is shot out of a cannon for this episode!

  • Back in the day, John was Funky Cold Jamingo.
  • Do you have an air fryer? What do you think?
  • Taco Bell, what is going on with your menu? You don’t need chicken!
  • Do you pick a word of the year? John’s for 2020 is CONTROL, Emily’s is BALANCE.
  • Emily cannot rap. Ugh. It’s embarrassing that she tried.
  • Emily is COLD! All the time!
  • Emily thinks she has a fear of success … but is it really fear of failure?
  • Dr. John is in! And he gives some wise words (from the movie “Hope Floats” lol)

  • Emily got a HappyLight to help with SAD.
  • Bed, Bath & Beyond is the best!
  • Emily has also fallen in love with Ready Chef Go bags that are so easy to cook!
  • She has also started enjoying green tea and wait until you find out what “Russian Novel Hour” is and how wonderful it is!
