HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE! I’m reaaaallllllllly sorry I’ve been m.i.a this weekend..BUT, just being honest here, there was nothing going on worth posting about 😦
EXCEPT!!!!!! I had two very different breakfasts from my usual, both Friday and Saturday:
FRIDAY: YES (20 mins on the bike, 30 on the precore)
SATURDAY: NOPE .. took a break! ( my homework load my this choice this for me)
OKAY NOW WERE UP TO DATE?…BACK TO TODAY!
AND why not stay with the breakfast theme here (my favorite meal of the day).. This morning I had:
Then, I did some homework and mid-day I made a yummy treat in the microwave:
ANYWAY…today, after a few hours of homework ( of course).. I went to the gym and did:
5 mins on the bike
15 on the elliptical
30 on the precore
…..a very satisfying work out 😉
NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS…. THE BOOK REVIEW!!!!!! here. it. is:
LIKES: This book is a great transition for people who are coming off of a diet and the “dieting mentality” is still stuck in their head. The book starts off with 10 rules that skinny people (apparently) follow when making food choices.
I won’t give away the rules, but they include things such as thinking before you make a decision, eating slower and smaller meals, and also eating a balanced diet. I agree with the first part of the book, mostly…..
DISLIKES: Bethany mentions picking at food that you like and stopping when your full. However, she never mentions just plain finishing a plate of food that you like because you’re hungry. Maybe this is supposed to be assumed by people but she never exactly comes out and says it. Also, I never fully finished the book because the second half describes a week in the life of Bethany and she explains EVERY SINGLE FOOD CHOICE she makes. I don’t feel that I need THAT much advice… so I just skimmed the end. I feel like some people might need a bit more help in tweaking their eating habits.
OVERALL I liked this book’s theories, but I think that when reading a diet book or article in a magazine people should ALWAYS consider their lives and know themselves well enough to know what will work for them. THANKS FOR THE GREAT TIPS BETHANY 😉
WELP..I’m off to do homework then get a good night’s rest for my busy week ahead. I have one question tonight:
How many days a week do you work out?? Is is for weight loss,maintenance, or just good health?? I try to work out at least 5-6 times a week for good health and maybe a little maintenance sometimes:)
