Better Than Nothin’Posted: March 9, 2011
Most of you encouraged me to take the self-control route with my Dots, and that’s what I did. I chewed the hell out of some gum, ate an apple and drank a bottle of water – and only three more Dots happened to find their way to my belly 🙂
My healthy lunch also made it easier to ignore the Dots. Freckled butternut squash soup and a salad.
After work, I headed to the gym for a quick pick-me-up. I wanted to take a nap, but I knew I’d wake up cranky and pissed off that I had to go to class, so the gym it was! It’s great how a little bit of movement can really wake you up. I didn’t do anything awesome – 20 minutes on the ArcTrainer and 7 (I got so bored) minutes on the bike. I wasn’t feelin’ the workout, but it was better than nothin’, right?!
I’ve got to get out of my comfy pants and into something more acceptable for class – but not before sharing day 14 of the 30 Day Picture Challenge
A picture of your favorite book
The title is a little off. This book didn’t help me win friends or a Nobel Peace Prize, but it honestly changed the way I interact with people on a daily basis. This book was written in 1937 and is the first bestselling self-help book ever published.
I was assigned to read it my junior year in college and my professor said “this isn’t your ordinary class read” and he was so right. I don’t think I could have thanked him enough for assigning this book. The book discusses human interaction in such a common-sense manner that the entire time I was reading it I was thinking “Well, duh! How come I’ve never thought of that?!”
Anyway, I’m sure not many people who read this blog have ever read (or even heard) of this book, but it’s truly wonderful 🙂
I hope you have a fantastic night, blog friends! I’ll catch ya tomorrow 😀
Let’s chat: What’s your favorite book? What did you have for lunch? Do you ever get bored at the gym?
