MIA and Body Confidence

I always say that when a blogger goes MIA it's because they may be off the wagon... and in my case, I'm right. I have been struggling. But hopefully, I've got hold of things before they get too bad. Just LIFE and being busy. One day, I will find a way to stay healthy and focus on me through life's obstacles. But I haven't done that just yet.

First things first... I have a book review.

My friend, Trish, sent me this book... and although I was supposed to post a review the other day I was unable to. My internet has been HORRIBLE lately. A few times I have tried to post at night and lost my connection half way through.

If you go to the Venice Nutrition website, you can find this about the book... which basically sums it up.
Venice Nutrition's Book, Body Confidence, is a revolutionary approach based on three key nutrition factors that stabilize your blood sugar and keep your body in balance:
  1. Eating at consistent meal intervals
  2. Absolute certainty in essential nutrient ratio of protein, fat, and carbohydrates
  3. Identifying and consuming the right amount of calories per meal

If you've read my blog at all, you know that in my last post I just made a goal to eat meals at intervals. The protien/fat/carb ratio is also a good idea that I've had success with before. Overall... I think it's a good book. Check it out. Did I mention that Chelsea Handler wrote the forward? Love her...

The swelling in my right leg and ankle is back and I've been trying to find a solution. I thought that drinking more water would help, but not so much. I have not been at the gym like I need to, but I got out for a good 45 minute walk today since the weather was gorgeous. It felt good to get moving again.

Well, I will hopefully play catch up on blog-reading over the weekend. I think things should slow down for me soon... both this week and last week have been crazy! I don't know if it's because we are coming off Spring break or not, but somethings gotta give! The good thing is that mentally, I feel so much better, and more prepared to deal with the stress that is my life. Things will get back on track... soon.
