Vacation food week continues! From my last post:
While I have been doing more than just eating and cooking and going out, they’re mostly things I do to relax so they aren’t “new” necessarily.
Something New #56 – Skinny Bitch
In my travels last Friday I swung by one of my favorite book stores, Strand, and wandered into the health books section. I’ve mentioned before my desires to ‘get healthy’ and lose a few pounds (and, also, a few roles coming up that require a sleeker look); but I’ve been having mixed results. I workout all the time, have been training for the 5k, and even started going to kung fu, but I’m not really getting where I want to go which makes me think it’s what I’m cramming into my maw.
I bought it because I’d seen it on a few friends shelves and the women who wrote it have entertainment industry roots. I’d heard good things; why not give it a try?
I read it in a day. That day was Friday.
I have every intention of writing a comprehensive review to help the wana-be Skinny Bitches out there with there decision to drop the $$ on buying it, but rehearsal is coming up quickly. What I will say in my quick blerb here is that I have spent most of my life intentionally avoiding anything about the treatment of animals in the food industry; not because I’m a bad person, but because I love meat. I didn’t know going in that they would ease me in to a lot of PETA-approved information… and once I started I couldn’t stop. And now that I’ve read it I can’t un-read it.
I haven’t eaten red meat since Thursday.
