REAL food?

new kettlebells - 1

Ok – I know this is lazy – but I’m going to point to a blog post that I read today.  If you haven’t seen it – it is worth reading and thought provoking.  It’s about what REAL food is and perhaps isn’t.

Side conversation……In a round-about-way, it talks to me about judging others.  I know….that’s a big thing with me.  Which makes me wonder – is it a big deal with me because I’m the judgmental one?  I’d like to believe it’s because I don’t like to be judged – but psychobabble suggests otherwise.  All I know is that I try to be non-judgmental but it doesn’t always work.  I’m a work in progress.

Back to the blog post though…..Fat Nutritionist – I really like her stuff.  She has a ton of good information on her site.

As far as my workouts go – I’m halfway through week 4 of Lauren Brook’s BeSlam program and really enjoying it.  Next week is a ramp up and I’m not sure I’m up for it as I am incredibly sore after my workouts (2 strength and 2 conditioning per week).  I don’t know if I’m pushing too hard for a 54 year old or if I’m simply a whimp and out of shape.  I guess time will tell.

I’ve also been listening to a book called How to have your cake and your skinny jeans too by Josie Spinardi.  It’s a good listen.  Full of suggestions and ideas on NOT dieting but also not falling into the free-for-all abyss.  She’s a young, energetic talker.

And the photo?  My new bells.  The family has increased to include 2x8kg, 2x12kg, 16kg & a 20 kg.  Aren’t they pretty?  🙂  I’m practicing my snatches and did some double swings with the 8kg’s last week.  Whoo wheeee…..look at me go.  🙂

  1. I love Josie’s book! I bet it’s fun to listen to the audio. Will check out that blog, thanks for the link!

    I still have to work back up to the two Lauren Brooks DVDs I bought, but you’re tempting me to pick up BeSlam as well!

    Woo-Hoo!!!! Welcome to the new additions to the family! You’ll love having 2 of each of those sizes-now so many more things you can do!!!
    I may have to get some comp bells….I have a pair of 20kg’s and a pair of 24kg’s and those handles are massive. I love to swing them, but when it comes to snatching them, it really rips the hands trying to keep my grip from failing!
    Have fun with the new additions!
