a fresh start & a Friday Hop!

New Friend Fridays

If your are here from NFF's..................................................................WELCOME!!!!! come back soon!

OK, so a friend of mine at church told me about this book & I'm usually not a gimmick diet do-er but this sounded pretty interesting and reliable,. Today is Day One. Essentially there is a four day Anti Bloat diet & then you follow a 28 day menu plan. The breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu is pretty decent, the only objection I have is I don't eat grape tomatoes and avocados. So I am substituting those foods for other approved veggies. we will see how it goes. I am still a follower of Weight Watchers and a lot of what this book says is in line with their system. I am hoping to incorporate the two so I can see some better results. I think my problem is, is that I think I get bored with WW, whereas this book pretty much does all the meal planning for you, and I just have to go to the store to buy the food.
 There is a recipe for what they call "Sass" water, and after my first cup of it, it doesn't taste anything like the Propel water I normally drink. Its not appealing but you gotta do what you gotta do. I will keep you posted on my progress. On another note: I registered for the Women's Half Marathon in September. There's no backing out now!!! I read on the website that they are going to allot a 4.5 hour time frame for walker/runners. Goodness, I hope I can complete it in that amount of time. My OBF is doing it with me, she's the one who talked me into doing it. A good portion of my brain was convincing me to NOT do it but since I committed to it with a post for the bloggy world to read, I figured there is no backing out now!
Well, that's all from my little corner of the world. Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!
