Say It: "I Choose Life"
My husband came up with this idea. Everytime I feel like reaching for food that isn't healthy or don't feel like working out, I have two choices: early death or LIFE! His idea: Simply say outloud (or in your head if others are around): "I CHOOSE LIFE!!" When you look at it that way...

I'm going to be honest, this week is my "mentally getting it together week" for BFL. I am scheduled to go on travel July 19-23, and I don't want to even think I can start the challenge my first week away (can we say per diem). BUT, I did start my routine (exercise workout and meal plan...

Frustrated already! Starting on Monday, need help with cardio, PLEASE!
Let me start by saying that I have been doing cardio workouts, and every other workout known to man for the past 3 months. So, the BFL book suggests that high intensity cardio training is working at 75% of max heart rate. For me that's 132 bpm. For me that's not hard enough. I don't feel...
