Yes, I'm back!
What's it been, like two weeks?? Did you know that I was gone? Well I'm here and ready to write again. I can't say that I was really that busy, but I was going through some issues. Idk about you guys but whenever I'm going through something then I just want to deal with it on my own. I'm still a work in progress, but I'm good.
So I felt the need to tell you all about this new workbook that I found by Leslie Sandsone. It was less than $4.00 at Books A Million, so I figured if I didn't like it I was only out four bucks. It's a pretty nice book. She explains how to be healthy and lose weight you need to start new good habits that way you eliminate the bad ones in the process. For example, I used to drink a lot of pop (or soda depending on where you're from) and its pretty common knowledge that it makes you bloated and fills you up really fast. So of course she advises that you drink 8 glasses of 8oz of water everyday. Now before I started I was like 'Yeah right! There's no way I can't drink that much water. I don't even drink that much liquid in general in a day!' But I gave it a try and am proud to say that I am successful and it wasn't even as hard as I thought it would be. I've been following the book for like a week and a half now and sometimes I find that I drink more than 8 glasses! So I think that is pretty awesome. (grin)
The other things she has you do is make sure you eat breakfast instead of just having coffee (yuck) or just nothing at all, she suggests that you don't watch tv, drive, or work while trying to eat because if you do then it causes 'mindless eating'. I didn't think I was doing that, but I do notice a difference when I'm just chilling out and eating as opposed to lets say eating and watching tv. I tend to enjoy my food more when I'm not distracted.
Basically it's common sense stuff in the book like eating a variety of foods, advising to do low impact workouts, and drinking water. But she makes it fun by giving you recipes to try, having you write notes about the experience, and marking off each glass of water you've had throughout the day. It makes you feel more accountable, or at least it makes me feel that way. Dude, I know this sounds like a total commercial, but I just really like this book. Ok, so I'm gonna wrap up here so I can go workout. Ciao!
