Wellness Affirmations

i've never thought of myself as the type who would go in for daily affirmations. but there are a bunch in the "melt it off" book that make you feel better just reading them. things like "this is not the hardest thing i've ever done" and "i can transform my body through eating right and exercising" and "even small changes in my life are big achievements." simple, but powerful.

3 Day Melt

my advice: read the pamphlets that come with the kit even if you're the type that hates to read directions. there's a grocery list to go with a menu plan. one for men. one for women. there are also places to journal your before, during and after measurements, etc. and there's a good section on stretches. i admit, when i first got my stuff in the mail, i just popped in the dvds and started in. you'll get more out of it if you use the whole program. even if you don't get to the whole little booklet right away, at least look at the 3 day melt it off kick start thingy.

<2 Wks

by the way, did i tell you that the 3 day melt kit arrived in less than 2 weeks? i was pretty impressed by that. seems like these things can take way longer than that sometmes.

Words of the Day: Opioid Peptide

do you think these taquitos are going to get in the way of my fitness plan? i hope not. i was down and out for a few days, unwell and not exercising. but i'm feeling tip-top now (obviously, if i'm chowing on guacamole) and will be back to the workout room tomorrow. i should have started working out a few months ago, to fight those winter blues. it really helps, doesn't it? those endorphins are friendly little fellas. did you know that they're related to other magical components that are in things like gluten and cheese? me neither. nifty.
