Zombie Life and Good Reads

I apologize for not posting since Monday. You see, I was attacked my a horrible stomach virus at the beginning of this week, rendering me essentially a Zombie (minus the eating human flesh part). Even as I’ve recovered from said zombie-virus, I still feel a little bit undead. Not being able to eat anything but oatmeal for 3 days really threw me for a loop too. I think my brain was starting to starve from lack of nutrients, hence the lack of posting.

But like I said, I’m on the mend, and my brain is slowly starting to function again. So in all of the time I spent this week not eating or lifting, I had plenty of spare time to do some reading. Much of this time was spent on the book Wheat Belly, which you’ll remember was one of my May goals. I’ll write a full post on this book once I’m finished, but I do have to note at this point that I’m not sure if I’m learning or being brainwashed. I think it’s a little bit of both, but honestly I’m enjoying the book so that’s all that matters. Cult be damned. As I said, I’ll elaborate later, but I just wanted to let you guys know how I’m feeling about this book that everyone raves about, now that I’m about 2/3 of the way through it.

What else have I been reading this week? Check it out below. You should read them too.

Obsessed: America’s Food Addiction — And My Own – From Mika Brzezinski on  Huffington Post. Some very thought provoking ideas here, and as it’s just an excerpt from a new book by the author, I’m excited to read more!

What Does The Term “Real Women” Really Say? Truth. ’nuff said.

Do You Really Want That Cheat Day – A great piece by Neghar Fonooni from Girls Gone Strong. Strict dieting vs. just living and eating. You make the choice!

I Used To Have A Blog Dedicated To Lying About My Eating Disorder.  Humor, brutal honesty, and some serious balls. Love this so much.

Fitness: Putting To Rest the Controversies and Confusion – A post from Moon Fitness, regarding the confusion in the fitness world and why different things work for different people.

Should You Use Scale Weight As A Measure of Success?  – A great piece from Tony Gentilcore rehashing why the scale is not usually an accurate way to measure progress.

Also, this.


With that I’m off to have a hopefully un-zombie-like weekend. Enjoy the sun folks, happy Friday!

    I’m curious to hear your thoughts on Wheat Belly – I’ve never read it, but I’m amazed how this book has influenced (brainwashed?) so many people.
