First off, I am so happy to be back to my blogging world! I was on a long-term sub assignment (7th grade science) plus the end of our Little League season had me working 'round the clock.
Now that I'm able to devote most of my time to reading again I can't wait to get started on these books that have been waiting for me:
Summer on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber
chasing harry winston by Lauren Weisberger
Latte Trouble by Cleo Coyle
I also came across Skinny Bitch. I know I'm behind the trend, but I never had a chance to read it. Every now and again, I try and read an inspirational (ha!) diet/health book to get me in high gear for weightloss. Have you SEEN me lately? Alas, after all these years of living with myself, I've come to one conclusion that I know is a fact about my body: exercise. I cannot lose weight without it. Dieting/healthy eating alone simply does not work for me. My body is a moving body, I think if I ever stopped doing all my volunteer stuff, I'd be the size of my house! I have to move. I'm so serious, I can eat salads every day, 3X a day (and, yes, I know they can have lots of calories, but I make them myself with either no dressing or lowfat) and a pitcher of water and I do not lose an ounce. Here's the thing when I start working out . . . I am so hungry all the time! I need to work out hard, so I run, and then I want to eat all day! As I think back to my thinner days, I realize that I used to work out at night. That way, I would sleep through my hunger. I was so totally exhausted that even hunger pain could not wake me! If I want to get serious about it this summer, I guess I'll be spending my late nights working out . . . which means my early mornings will be filled with reading and writing. I can live with that!
