By Elizabeth Gilbert.
Really great book. Highly insightful & thoroughly entertaining & comedic!! :)

Anyway, here's a GREAT GREAT excerpt from "Book II; India" (pg. 178)

"Learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select what clothes you're gonna wear every day. This is a power you CAN cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the MIND. That's the only thing you should be trying to control. Drop everything else but that. Because if you can't learn to master your thinking, you're in deep trouble forever."

"...Admit to the existence of negative thoughts, understanding where they came from and why they arrived, and then -- with great forgiveness & fortitude--dismiss them."

Again, this book is so interesting. An easy read & very thought provoking!
Let me know if you've read it and what your thoughts are!

Funny conclusion

I stole this off of Debbie's blog (Jessica's trainer I think!)
Anyway, I totally got a kick out of it!!!

After an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and health:
1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
2. Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
3. Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
5. Germans drink beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

***I'm sorry, but isn't that FUNNY????*** We are such an over indulgent nation. Which is okay in moderation, but we don't know TRUE moderation, really, do we????

Oh, and thanks so much for the awesome comments on my VLOG! It's really fun and I plan on doing many more, so stay tuned!!! But, just like Krissa said, the Handstands aren't as hard as they look. Try them!! I think the key is keeping your core "zipped up", use your feet to find balance, and then DRIVE through your shoulders not your forearms or wrist! Let me know if you have success!!!
