This week the Sistahood is introducing a fun book by Chef Jessica titled the  The MILF Diet: Let the Power of Whole Foods Transform Your Body, Mind, and Spirit…Deliciously.   I can honestly say I am intrigued for several reasons.  I love looking into plant based diets (which this is about) as well as food that will make me feel better and more beautiful.  Second I have always been upfront about my personal struggle with my self esteem.  I am lucky that I have a man who always thinks I am beautiful and sexy, but I often don't see this in myself.  What an interesting look at eating, eating to not only make you feel great on the inside and outside.  I am looking forward to checking out Mamavation TV on Monday night for the interview. 

Now onto my week.  I started getting really sick this weekend and hung in there for a few days, but ended up at the Dr on Wednesday with a full blown sinus infection and laryngitis so bad I could barely talk.  I had to take the next day off from work which was upsetting because my new semester just started.  Needless today I didn't get all my goals in.  I did manage two workouts before I got really sick.  I tried out my new Tae Bo tapes which was a great and managed weight wise to get off the pound I gained last week and then some.  So despite being sick this was an ok week in terms of eating and exercise considering I was sick.  I am hoping for a more consistent workout week next week-this is where I have been struggling so I am looking forward to a post where I hit my goal for working out.

    I hope you get better soon. I know how hard is to keep active while sick. I just had pneumonia and it was hard to breath. Do as much as you can, but do something, walking a little bit, will help you have some energy.

  3. I agree--make sure you rest up enough and get yourself better so you can get back to kicking butt!

    I understand about being sick...it really kicks your workout routine when you don't feel well. Glad you made it to the doctor, though, and I hope you're on your way to a quick recovery.

    Also, thanks for stopping by Carrigan's Joy, I really appreciate your understanding of the emotional eating.

    And, I love your blog layout, who did it??? :)
