Game On

I’ve been playing a new game. It’s a diet based on this book. You play for 4 weeks in teams. It’s hard!

I know it sounds hard to only eat “real” food…and it is certainly a lot of prep-work and cooking, but it’s the foods we’re SUPPOSED to be eating.

I honestly don’t care about who gets the prize…I’m just trying to jump-start my metabolism and reboot my health :-) I’m thrilled with the non-scale results as well. I’ve started to enjoy cooking for my family again, running is getting easier, and I’ve discovered a love of Spinning!
