Day 18:Take A Nap

Day 18: Take A Nap- You don't have to be a kid to take a nap.  A quick nap after lunch or before dinner will relax and recharge your body and mind. Even if you can't sleep, the very act ofclosing your eyse can work wonders.

Let your body dictate how long you sleep. If you work take a 10-15 minute nap on your lunch break. Set the alarm on your cell phone to wake you up. When you open your eyes, you'll feel ready to start the rest of your day anew.

Day 17: Eat Right For Your Type- Like I was saying yesterday, I follow the "Eat right for your type" (blood) diet. When I first got on the plan it was about 12 years ago. I weighed 170 pounds from a second pregnancy, but had a miscarriage. A friend of mine started the plan and told me about it. Since, I wanted to loose the weight I started his suggestions for my blood type and became active exercising (walking, bike riding and tennis). In four months I lost down to 140 pounds and kept at that weight and never gained back what I lost.
My overall health improved and I felt better than I had my whole life.

So give it a try and see how much better you feel and find out what your perfect weight should be.

I have found that I do better on small meals maybe more often then the basic 3. And I now don't eat just because its a meal time. I wait until I feel I want something, that way I enjoy it more and I'm eating less. Fruits and Veggies are my main source of my meal. I don't care much for meat at all so use other ways to get some protein.

I'll try to find the book. I could use some change in this area. We plan our menus a week at a time and usually put in things we like but it is a lot of bigger meals with considerable prep time. Maybe this book would give me some clues.
It is interesting that your blog ideas seemed very basic to me at first but I hopefully I am learning some things now.
