Move Over Ryan Reynolds.

I could definitely be the next Green Lantern.  Or perhaps I’m the original Green Lantern.  See, I read this article (LA Times) the other day about how actor Ryan Reynolds prepared (i.e. got ripped) for his role as The Green Lantern.  The article interviewed Reynolds’ personal trainer, Bobby Strom.  Turns out, Reynolds has been eating lean protein (salmon), TONS of veggies and…. get this…. his breakfast is:

  • Steel-cut oatmeal
  • Flax seed
  • Almond butter
  • Blueberries
  • Protein powder

That’s what I eat for breakfast!!!!  OK, so I don’t add in the protein powder, I just add more almond butter.  But it’s almost what I eat.  Every. Single. Morning.

So, if you want to be the next Green Lantern you just have to eat tons of veggies and oatmeal with healthy stuff thrown in.  If you do that, you’ll have a body like Ryan Reynolds (of course, mine is more of a feminine Ryan Reynolds, duh.)

Oh yeah, there was also something in that article about Reynolds working out about 12 hours per day.  I only work out about half that much. (Heh!)  So maybe I’m more of a “Jack Black as the Green Lantern”.

No?  Maybe I’m more like Daffy Duck as the Green Lantern?

Gosh, I think if President Obama can be The Green Lantern then I can too.

Hmmm.  Maybe I’m just more like Kermit the Frog as The Green Lantern.

Oh well, at least now I know what costume to pick out for Halloween.  The neighborhood kids are going to be so amazed to find The Real Green Lantern dropping packets of oatmeal + flax seed into their Halloween goodie bags this coming October 31st.  Almond butter?  No, I don’t share that.  They’ll need to get their own.

In the meantime, I will keep eating all my veggies and my fabulous oatmeal too!

    It’s OK if you drop flax seed and oatmeal into their Halloween bags, because everyone knows that Michael Dell gives out $100 bills when you trick-or-treat at his house…

      Yes — $100 bills OR the chance to see Susan Dell in a skin-tight catwoman suit. :)

        eww…did she really do that?

        Yikes… I’m not sure the $100 bills would even be worth it…
