Scenes From The Week
1. Couch time!
2. Belated bday beer with hubby after he got home from out of town
3. Beer in the mail! Got hubby a subscription to the Craft Beer of the Month Club for our anniversary.
We celebrated hubby’s birthday along with one of our other friends who has a bday this coming week. That’s hubby’s new mug. He loves it. Also…finger glasses- remember those?
One of the amazing RDs I met out in California on my almond trip was Francy. She has written a book called Skinny on Slim that I recently had the chance to read and it’s wonderful. The book’s tagline is “The little black dress of diet books” because these principles never go out of fashion. Love that!
Here’s the Amazon description:
This is an essential diet book. You will immediately relate to Francy’s animated and intimate journey from Fat City to Slim Town and feel inspired to make the same trip, solving your eating issues along the way. At times you’ll laugh out loud while at others you’ll delve deep into your soul.
Your eating will be enlightened yet you will not go hungry or feel pressure. You will learn about the 3-by-3 approach and three Rs – reviewing, reflecting and reframing – to help you create your own love story with food and activity. Oodles of healthy and stealthy tips and revealing testimonials from a cast of successful weight losers will also motivate you on your way to ultimate success.
Francy clicks with the reader: “Let’s bond as blood sisters of sorts. Instead of raising our swords, we’ll clink our wine glasses, kick off our Manolos, peel off our Spanx, undo our ultra-reinforced underwire bra and share real life strategies together.” A typical finger-wagging dietitian the author is NOT.
