Knowledge is Power

Knowledge is power; arm yourself defensively.

I've just order two books (thank you Beth!) by Michael Pollan, and I may just give copies as gifts if they're as informative as I think they're going to be.

Interested in what you're eating or how we've come to evolve into what we're eating? These will peak your interest. Check them out.

In Defense of Food

The Omnivore's Dilemma

I have not lost even half a pound since Monday morning, but that's OK. I haven't gained! Tonight I will do more cardio. Writing it down here will MAKE me get to the gym.

Inspired by my fellow challengers, I made some challenge-reward bling (scroll to the bottom of that page to check them out). It isn't too late to join us if you want!

I wish everyone well.

Give out positive energy; believe it will come back to you.

Very cool! Thanks for posting that, I'm in need of some new reads.

Don't worry about the loss yet, things change quick on the scale. Mine is showing up right now but it will not (I am determined) be the case on Sat A.M.

Any new progress on your mom? Have they located her small intestine (I'm still so confused as to how a medical team could encounter this).

Oh my god, I LOVED In Defense of Food. I just came across your blog but I'm already interested to hear your take on Pollan's work :).

Just a Lovable Party Girl

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
