Garcia and Collins agree on the importance of realistic gradual weight loss
And Collins mentions the risk of putting on weight
at bitamid a busy travel schedule.
Nissen says he keeps active at airports to help avoid this while Garcia avoids alchole on planes.
Collins says she limits her drinking at business conferences both for weight reasons and to focus on net working.
In this case, crash refers to an intense effort made in a very short period of time.
So someone on a crash diet will try to lose a huge amount of weight very quickly.
Likewise, we have the term crash course.
When someone learns a lot about something in a short period of time as in
I'm taking a crash course in French before my vacation to Paris.
The way to go:
The right approach, the right thing to do or to choose, Garcia means.
I think a smart phone is the way to go.
If you want to buy a new cell phone, you can do so many different things with it.
And we also use way to go by itself to mean well done.
Imagine, a foreigner tells you "I just read a Japanese news paper article without using a dictionary."
You could compliment
himthem by saying "Way to go."
Learn a lesson:
We use this expression when we learn from some unpleasant experience.
We also say learn one's lesson.
Let's say, I don't give myself enough time to prepare for a presentation.
And as a result, I don't do very a good job.
I could say later,
"Well, I learn my lesson, next time I will start
to preparepreparing earlier."
Steady as she goes:
I believe this expression uses the image of a ship being
stiredsteered slowly, steadily. Ships are usually referred to as female in English.So steady as she goes refers to gradual, careful, steady implementation or progress in something.
For exmaple, I prefer low risk investments that yield a profit over time, not high risk high return possibilities. So steady as she goes is my motto for investment.
Park oneself in a chair:
Like a car, we can park ourselves or something else in a certain place for a while, leave it there for a certain amount of time.
As in she parked the baby with her mother in law while she went grocery shopping.
Or he parked some money in a Swiss bank account.
This probably refers to a gun that is certain to fire properly, when you use it.
As in being late to work all the time is a surefire way to make a bad impression.
Collins is using this as a noun to mean alcoholic drinks.
It can also be a verb meaning to drink alcohol especially regularly or to excess.
Most of us do a fair amount of boozing when we're in our twenties, don't we?
All too well:
We use "all too" with many different words to mean excessively very.
Not always, but the nuance is very often negative like
He is late to work all too often.
Or she knows all too well the danger of not saving money.
