This book is amazing.
I've had it for a really long time. I highly suggest you pick it up. It teaches you alot of correct eating principles. Portion sizes. Workout to Eating ratios. It's fully of alot of good infomation. Gives you ideas on how to make meal plans that work for your specific goals. I haven't felt better than when I was applying these prinicples.
I'm sure most of you knew this. But I didn't til last Christmas. Exercising is only 20% of the weightloss science. Nutrition is the other 80%. Who knew. Not me. I thought I could eat whatever I wanted as long as I worked my butt off.(ok, well it worked in highschool.) I know... I know. I'm highschool anymore.
This is actually good news for me. Since I'm not able to do any cardio right now(I haven't tried biking yet. Monday. Wish me luck.) I need to rely on my diet.
Weight has always been a tender subject for me. Show me a girl that doesn't think about her weight, and I'll give you a high five. I think that because this has been touchy for me, that not working out has been harder for me. I've always had to work hard to stay in shape. *Mainly because I love food*
I love this book, and I love the reminder it gave me to eat clean. I hate getting personal on here. I like being the light hearted, go lucky girl who blogs about the random fun things. But to be honest. This has been on my mind alot lately. So I will blog about it. I've always been jealous of my friends who blog about the things they think. I blogged last week about the best friend. *who's letter I still haven't sent* So why not blog about exercise and eating properly.
Oh....wish me luck.
I always feel better when I put these good principles to use. Making them a habit. Falling off the bandwagon is so hard. The next 3 weeks are going to be rough.
