Overwhelmed by books!
Wednesday, February 20, 2008
So I've gotten into a kick of reading. I've been to the library quite a few times within the past couple of months. I've placed holds on various books.
But it's a little overwhelming when they all come at once! I got an e-mail saying a book was waiting for me. When I showed up there were THREE books waiting for me. I dropped off two and I still had one from before. So now I have four books to try and make it through in two and a half weeks.
I've already started Rethinking Thin, although so far it's just been about how wonderful the Atkins diet is. Which is good for others, but I know it's not for me! I HATE MEAT!
Pretty much every single kind. The only kinds I like are steak (drenched in A-1), hamburgers/hot dogs (must have ketchup, mustard, onions, relish), popcorn chicken (dipped in ranch or gravy), and popcorn shrimp (must have cocktail sauce). I can't think of anything else. Basically, unhealthy meats drenched in condiments to cover the meat taste. So I tend not to eat them.
I also picked up the Beck diet solution, which I'm not so sure about. One called Shrink Yourself, a book about emotional eating. Then I also got a book by John Stossel.
I also read the Bible (almost) every night before I go to sleep. I also have four other books that I own that I'm working my way through. Hmm...I guess as long as I'm reading, I'm not eating! LOL
Oh, and I take them with me to the gym too. So that's good!
