Why I have nothing exciting to say today...

  1. I have a terrible cough and cold (again). Everytime I cough, I have to concentrate really hard so as not to pee my pants. Seriously.
  2. Girl Scout Cookies. When you had 6 boxes delivered to your door exactly a week ago, and only a few cookies now remain, writing about health and fitness feels somewhat hypocritical.
  3. My "high speed" internet connection is reminding me tonight of my dial-up days. How did we ever survive?
  4. I'm still mad that Jake chose Vienna on The Bachelor last week.
  5. This pregnancy has gifted me with varicose veins in some awkward and unmentionable places.
  6. I just started reading The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-term Health by T. Colin Campbell. I'm pretty sure EVERYTHING I've EVER believed about protein is about to be put to shame. I've only read the first two chapters, and I'm about to go joke. You'll be hearing MUCH more about this book (that my brother's been telling me to read for a few years now.) Very surprising. Very enlightening. Very unconventional (with lots of science to back it). We already know that the foods we eat can promote or compromise our health, but he delves into the exact science of why and how. I can't wait to finish it!
  7. American Idol is back on.
  8. It's the final season of LOST.

How are those for excuses? I'll be back soon with SOMETHING more exciting...hopefully!

I did almost stop on the side of the road today to buy some GS cookies. And THANK YOU for finally starting The China Study. I think I almost bought everyone a copy for Christmas a few years back, but I didn't think everyone would really appreciate. Dr. Campbell spoke at BYU and it was inspiring. I only wish I had bought a copy before he spoke so he could have signed it...oh well. Hopefully you get rid of your cough soon or you'll have to break another record by having two kids and one adult in diapers. Maybe you can inspire extreme laziness in your husband and make it three kids and two adults in diapers by the time your baby's born.

LOL!!! I hear ya Robyn. Hmmmm...I don't know if I want to read something that inspires me to eat MORE strict...sigh, but I'm sure I'll find myself reading it now. I need to find me some girl scout cookies those sound delicious:) And I don't know about you, but I am not that impressed with the talent on American Idol this year. Maybe it's just cuz it's the's to hoping that's the reason.

Good Grief Robyn!!!!!! Just don't start sneezing or you will just break your water and you will have your baby right there in front of everyone, but then you get to be 80 and it doen't matter if you just stand and have to run (or I mean shuffle to the POWDER ROOM). You are just betginning the fun time of your young life so enjoy it. Love ya lots!!!!!!

So funny you should mention that book - we must be on some kind of alternative similar wavelength...two of my friends were JUST telling me about I feel like its some kind of sign - AHH!

And I am TOTALLY there with you on the bachelor pick - totally gross! AND LOST - HELLOOO!!

And I cannot even BUY G.S.cookies for that same reason - it WOULD happen to me, sad to say!
