Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

How to Eat, Move and Be Healthy!

How to Eat, Move and Be Healthy! - Paul Chek This one was a pretty decent read as well. The parts I really enjoyed and learned the most from were the nutrition and lifestyle questionnaires. Stress was the area I scored the highest on (I am not surprised), so I'm going to have to work on that.

I also learned that my metabolic type is mixed and that means I'm the easiest to feed, but the toughest to train because I'm both protein and carbs at the same time. I realized I just need to listen to my body and if it's saying protein that's what I need to feed it and if I'm craving carbs I just need to mash up some sweet potatoes and butter. I shouldn't deny myself anything, I just need to listen closer and continue to exercise three times a week. It's really making a difference in how I feel, and that's the most important part.

The final part that I liked a lot was Chapter 14: Is Your Digestive System Healthy? Here I met the Poopie Policeman and the poopie criminals. I made a photo copy of the lineup and what each one means and it now hangs loud and proud in my bathroom for anyone to read and see if they have a healthy digestive system or not.
