Janelle Brown: Smarter Than Your Average Brown (Maybe)

Recommended Posts

2 hours ago, Cetacean said:

Please stop showing us pictures of food, Janelle, Please, please, please.  You cannot take an appetizing picture to save your life, there is a skill to taking pictures of food and you do not have it.  Food pictures with your phone are a major fail for pretty much everyone.

And while we're on the topic, if she doesn't post those pictures, she doesn't have to attempt to explain what we're looking at.  Most of the time I would say that food is self-explanatory.  With Janelle, it's all "Made chicken!  Used some kind of sauce - barbeque, I think it's called?  With mustard, which I think comes from South Carolina?  Did you know that you can put barbeque sauce on chicken?  Also, not pictured - I swear I had a healthy green salad using all the leftover veggies in my fridge that were crammed the gallon jug of Hawaiian Punch and the package of Double-Stuffed Oreos.  I only used a half-cup of ranch dressing and it turned out just fine!  You can minimize calories by not using the entire bottle!  Hey, I wonder if chicken tastes good dipped in ranch?  If you find a good recipe let me know!"

I prefer Argentinian BBQ with just kosher salt and a squeeze of lemon.

Still looks like bloat face to me..

I don't get why she just wouldn't run down to the local gas station and fill up the tank. She could have picked up her Dr Pepper 73oz cup and grabbed some snackies. Also, isn't BBQ on a charcoal grill whereas grilling is on a propane grill?

I don't know what she was grilling, was that steak? Looked like it would have been as tough as Christines skin, the legs looked ok, I am not a fan of the legs or thighs myself ( unless its on John Stamos )

 Working on that myself.  Most nights it’s myself and Savanah or Kody and the two of us .  Boys have their own lives lol.  Far cry from cooking for all the kids when they were home.  I still buy and prepare too much 😂

She's the accountant of the family and she can't do the math to figure proportions of how much to buy and prepare?  Maybe it's just an excuse to eat all the leftovers.

Correction to Janelle's post, she should have said: "I still buy, prepare, and eat too much."

I feel so sorry for Savanah. Her brothers have their own lives and she is stuck with her mother and Kody (I'm avoiding calling him "father" on purpose) and it seems the only time she gets out of the house is to accompany her lazy mom to the gym. Because otherwise Janelle wouldn't go.

When Janelle was trying to rationalize to Gabe that it was a great idea to leave LV, one of her big points was that Savanah didn't leave the house because of the heat. No explanation as to why AuroraBreanna couldn't come to play indoors or why Savanah couldn't go over to their house.  

Savanah appears to be somewhat shy and retiring and as her mother, it's Janelle's responsibility to bring her out of her shell as much as she is comfortable in doing so.  I wonder if Janelle has looked into enrolling Savanah into a group or club where her interests lie, it seems more appropriate than having her be mom's companion at the gym.

Perhaps she can now that COVID restrictions are lifting.  The last year they've been stuck for much of it.  Hopefully getting back in the classroom will help, too.  What will Janelle do home all day with no one, but the dog?

3 dogs

does she ever walk the dogs?

all she ever posts are pics of the dogs laying around looking fat and bored… when she posts pics of her walks I don’t recall any of the dogs with her. 🤔

And I cannot blame the boys one bit for seeking their meals elsewhere.  🤢

You would think if cooking is such a chore, she would make enough to eat for several days.  The way I work, I rely on leftovers, Yes I've cooked enough to eat for 7 days.  Yes it gets boring, but it's already made and all I have to do is dish it up into a container and eat for lunch.

I've been working long hours and cooking large batches & freezing the rest in single servings for 40 years so that I can always pull out something and have a meal ready in minutes. Stews, casseroles, soups and  cooked meat & poultry.  I'll roast a whole chicken or beef roast and slice or dice it into single servings. A frozen serving keeps the salad dressing cold until I dump it into my unwilted dry salad for lunch. I typically have 5 or 6 different things in the freezer so it doesn't get boring.

I save a lot of money and I don't spend all my time cooking and washing pots & pans.

I do the same thing. As a single person that doesn't eat a lot of food, I make batches of things and freeze single serving size containers. Always have several meals in the freezer. I've taken to putting wax paper notes inside to tell date frozen. Gotta rotate the things out...

Wow!  The last 7 year have been hard ones on Janelle, apparently!  She looks really good in the picture (I know Savannah is blocking her belly, but still.).

It's a nice family photo.  And is Kody holding Janelle's purse??  That's so funny (and cute) to me.

Logan, Hunter, Aspyn and Mariah have graduated with college degrees. Logan also has an MBA and Hunter is getting his masters in nursing.  Mariah was working on her masters in social work but no current status on that.... Maddie and Garrison have attended college sporadically.  Gabe, Gwen, and Aurora currently attend NAU.  Dayton did attend NAU but it's not certain whether he still does. I'd assume that Ysabel will attend NAU this fall, although I haven't seen it posted anywhere saying where she will attend college.

Janelle stresses that losing inches, not pounds is what is important.  Forgive my lack of knowledge about weight loss journeys, but doesn't it stand to reason that if you lose inches, you would consequently also lose pounds?

Unless, you lose inches in say, your bustline only to pick up those lost inches in your belly.  It would not be a lie then to say that you lost inches, just a lie of omission not to mention that you found them redistributed elsewhere on your body.

Ref, Janelle looking up a lot.....I have a friend who used to be somewhat overweight. She had a double chin and hated it. I noticed that she always had her head held high in photos. It was very obvious. One day she told me she did it so her chin wouldn’t be so obvious. Lol.  Years later she lost a ton of weight. I mean from around 180 to 120.  I think she’s kept if off too.

The FDA should crack down on the pink drink. It sounds dangerous. I once dated a guy who was into this so-called energy drink called Verve. It contained so much caffeine that it was a miracle he didn't have a heart attack he drank so much of it. The company that hawked it, Vemma, was an MLM. I think my friend was the only person who actually drank the product. It supposedly contained some sort of exotic fruit from the African rainforest or something but that was pretty much it, aside from the massive amount of caffeine.  I tasted it once and it was disgusting, but I find that Red Bull tastes disgusting too so there's that.

Lol it was actually called "Verve!" The exclamation point I find amusing. I looked it up. Here are the ingredients:

  • 80 mg natural guarana caffeine.
  • 1 g taurin amino acid.
  • 12 full-spectrum vitamins.
  • 65 plant-sourced minerals and trace minerals.
  • 120 mg natural guarana caffeine.
  • 45 kcal and only 5 g of natural sweeteners.
  • Mangosteen superfruit
  • Aloe vera

You can lose inches without losing weight by losing voluminous fat while building tight muscles, but that doesn't happen if you sit on the couch all day.

And also, most women aren’t going to build muscle replacement pounds easily unless they’re on some body building program (not our Janelle). If Janelle loses inches, she’ll likely have weight loss to show for it. 

But to an extent I agree with her—one has to track their progress somehow. If she chooses inches, great. I just haven’t seen a difference in her in years, so she’s not a good spokesperson for anything yet.

LOL taurine (I'm assuming they misspelled) is not even an amino acid. I spent an entire summer memorizing those little sh*ts, their structures, and I immediately red-flagged "taurin amino acid." Taurine is something called an "amino sulfonic acid," but I guess "amino acid" sounds "sciency enough" without being "too sciency," so they went with that for marketing.

Yep, "taurin" was their misspelling, intentional or not.
