Sunday Chit-Chat

How's the weekend going? I'm feeling a million times better than I was this time last week and it's been a great weekend so far.

I was thrilled that Dr. Lisa Young, author of The Portion Teller Plan, came and commented on yesterday's post on portion control *and* she tweeted my blog! And if that weren't exciting enough, Lori from Finding Radiance asked for guest bloggers to cover for her while she's away on holiday. I was lucky enough to get some space on her blog. Check out my post here.

And if you're a regular reader of Lori's blog or a follower of Dr. Young @drlisayoung on Twitter who have found your way over here...WELCOME!

I've caught up on my workout that I missed last week (stage 1, B3) and look forward to getting to work on those squats in A4 tomorrow. Looking forward to squats, what? YES! I've been doing some research on proper form on not rounding the back, getting low, pushing up from the butt and not lifting from the chest all while holding a 12 pound body bar on my shoulders. I look forward to putting my new knowledge into practice tomorrow.

As always, your comments, questions and suggestions are most welcome and if you haven't written in to post your picture of you doing your favorite healthy activity, c'mon. I've got some food related posts that need finishing that I hope to get up this week so watch this space and have a fantastic Sunday evening, wherever you are!

  1. a great way to make sure your form isn't slipping is to practice squats in front of a wall. So you are JUST not touching. It forces you to keep your back straight and pay attention to where your hips are.
