Day 43.1: Study Says Morning Light Keeps You Slim

Oh, no! This is very bad news because I love my bed. Maybe I need to sleep outside? I really could live out of doors. I love to be outside, I just don’t love getting up early! However, this new study says that people who roll their lazy asses out of bed rise early, and get outside are up to 30 pounds (holy shittakes) lighter. Are you kidding me? Can I possibly become a morning person?

Here’s the article! Check it out.

Anyone want to try to get up earlier with me? I’ll set my alarm for 6:30 for the next week and plan to go outside and enjoy the morning for 30 minutes or so. Challenge anyone? I mean, what have you got to lose, besides precious sleep poundage?? Who’s in?


Day 43: You Know You’ve Changed Your Life When…

You get giddy over a new water bottle. What has happened to me? I’m suspicious of plastic. All plastic. BPA free, or not. It’s just a matter of time before we find out that there’s some other chemical in there messing with our bodies — not to mention the mess it’s making of our planet. So, lately, I’ve experimented with a couple of different glass bottles. To be honest, my favorite glass water bottle was, stupidly, left on a tennis court (DOH) at a tournament… (Hey, where I first learned about Ideal Protein…) so it wasn’t a total disaster. I haven’t been able to find another like it. However, while in Colorado, I found this sweet replacement. My only issue is that the drinking hole is small. I have to drink out of it sideways so that air can get in and you don’t create suction. Once I figured that out, I’m very pleased. The other thing I always watch for is a “wide mouth” at the top. Easy to get ice, or scoops of drink mix in.

Don’t be too jealous. Just saying.

Shiner is a bit jealous of my new bottle, but she'll get over it.

Life Factory‘s even got a line of baby bottles, wine glasses and food storage containers. Check them out!
