HEY! I read your blog before realizing that you posted a comment on my spark page! All my emails from spark keep going to my spam folder :( annoying.
I love the tosca reno book! I think I will reread it again. I also like the wheat belly book but like you I have not read all of it. I need to pick it up again and start reading where I left off. I've been reading the third book in the Divergent series.
It has been good having the hubs home. I missed him a lot while he was gone, but I notice that deployments make me a little clingy. I have a hard time wanting to do stuff without him which is not normal of me. I'm usually very independent. Like Carnival, he doesn't like that sort of thing so just dropped off me and my friend and then picked us up. We got there at 9:00 and by 12:30 I was calling him to come pick us up! I think I was kinda this way the last time too. I'm just relieved he is home. Last year was just a weird year. I packed on 25 pounds, was off thyroid meds, felt so depressed and sluggish all the time, and my cravings were uncontrollable. Emotional eating is horrible. Since he has been home, my night time snacking is gone, I couldn't tell you the last time I ate a cupcake, and I don't crave junk food. You don't realize how the events in your life are affecting you until you look back (in hindsight) and it is like "whoa, I really struggled at that time in my life". It wasn't just him being gone, it was also a lot of changes at work so the two together just threw me on my butt!
Oh goodness, this girl is NOT running a marathon any time soon and I am NOT doing 2 hours of cardio a day! When i say cardio, I mean trying to sneak in 10 minutes of activity here and there. I am reading Tosca'slatest book "the start here diet'
