Fall reading list

Cameron-Diaz-the-body

I have lots of eye candies on my reading list.

Right now I’m reading Cameron Diaz book about the body and lifestyle. I’m waiting for James A. Levine Move a Little, Lose a Lot to drop into my mailbox. Research shows that daily N.E.A.T. (nonexercise activity thermogenesis) activity burns more calories than a half hour on the treadmill.

Next goodie is Alexander Green’s The Secret of Shelter Island, which is about the money and the pursuit of the good life.

I’m also curious about a Swedish author Anders Ström newly published investment book that is a guide to financial independence. I’m looking forward to read about Simon Blecher (fundmanager of the year 2013) and a Swedish pilot mom who started investing fulltime. I can never get enough of inspirations.

What are you reading this fall?

Whole 30 – After

By HappySkinnyGirl

My taste buds during the whole 30 have improved a lot so things like ice cream didn’t taste as good anymore. I ate a lot of junk food in the past few days to see if it tasted the same like before and you can guess how I feel. Tired and motivation to do things was horrible. However, I will not continue with the whole 30 because it feels too strict for me.

My new plan is to eat less but more often instead, because I have more energy to move more.

I still can’t believe I managed to finish the whole 30! Had I not been blogging every day, I wouldn’t be able to complete it. I experienced very mixed emotions during these 30 days. I slept well. The food taste good even without unhealthy sauces and additives. Did I get more energy from Whole 30 food? I doubt it, the energy probably comes from the weight I lost and not from the actual diet.

Results
Weight: -3,5kg (7,7 lbs)
Waist: -3cm (1,2 inches)

Now I’m on the reintroduction phase where I start to introduce dairy products for 3 days and observe how I feel afterward. I had whipped cream to my banana pancakes this morning but I couldn’t finish it. I was satisfied very fast. For lunch, I put cheese in my left over chili from yesterday. And now I’m going to have some ice cream.
