After reading everyone’s comments yesterday about Skinny B, thought I should add a few comments….
The book does recommend 20 minutes of exercise a couple times a week. I'll attempt to incorporate this. I just need a routine and I have to stick to it, otherwise I'm a lazy bum.
I don’t know if I will ever be able to totally give up meat!
You can get protein from numerous other sources. Whole wheat breads, bagels, pastas and such. There are so many products out right now for meatless products, such as veggie burgers and soy chicken patties. I’ve had both before and I think they taste great. Put either on a whole wheat bun and you’ve got yourself almost 20 grams of protein.
I LOVE cheese, really (really, really) love it! In the book it gives alternative dairy free cheeses to try so I might sample them. I love grilled cheese and mac n cheese too! It might taste different but I think certain things you can acquire tastes for.
I used to hate beer, couldn’t stand anything about it. Now, I enjoy having a cold one or two ;)
I won’t only be buying organic foods, I have a budget to live on as well people ;)
I will not be giving up occasional drinks. I like going out and having fun or sitting on the deck at home with B and enjoying cocktails!
In the book the girls clearly state you might find them playing beer pong ;)
The book also says red wine is “ok” to drink with no sulfates (they of course only recommend the organic stuff).
There are more books in this series, Skinny Bitch in the Kitch, Skinny Bitchin, Skinny Bitch Bun in the Oven and just out this year Skinny Bastard. They also have 3 workout DVD’s out so at least we know they do workout as well!
The book clearly states you can do whatever you want, if you don’t think you can give up everything and become a Vegan, just do what you can! If you can’t give up pop, give up something else. I’ve gone 3 days without POP, so there's a starting point. Soda -ha!
B is totally against me going totally organic/vegetarian. So I will accommodate to him as well. We do live in the same home and prefer to cook one dinner a night together. Guess I'll just have to see where things go :)
Thank you so much for all your comments/opinions from yesterday!
Lastly, please keep praying for baby Stellan. His heart is doing better but him and his parents will be going in an airambulance to Boston. He can’t wait until he weighs enough or is 4 years old. His heart needs help now. This family is from MN and so am I, I've been following her blog since before I started mine so this is hitting close to home....small world we live in.
