5. One GOOD book

I just read The Bright Side of Disaster by Katherine Center, and it wasn't so bad

6. One GOOD song.

I'm very homesick for my boyfriend, so the one song I cannot get enough of recently is "World Spins Madly On" by The Weepies.

"I let the day go by. I always say goodbye. I watch the stars from my window sill. The whole world is moving, and I'm standing still......I woke up and wished that I was dead. With an aching in my head. I lay motionless in bed. The night is here. The day is gone. And the world spins madly on..."

It just reminds me that the worlds going to go on whether I'm with it or not. And laying in bed all day crying isn't going to make the countdown go by any faster or slower. It's a kick in the butt to get up and get to the gym, which always makes me feel better.


7. One GOOD TV show.
I LOVE Grey's Anatomy and Sex and the City!

8. One awesome food you don't want to live without.
Cereal. I'm totally with Spoz on kicking the cereal habit. I always have a bowl before bed (habit from those days of working three jobs, with only enough time to eat and nap before heading back to work) and I'm afraid it's going to be the end of me.

9. One weight loss lie you've heard.
If it doesn't work within the first two months - it's probably not going to work at all.


10. The best tip you've received with regard to long lasting slimness.
I totally agree with the "Don't cheat yourself - treat yourself".
