Back to reading...

Hmmm, now that's not correct because I HAVE been reading, just not blogging.  I don't know where the time goes.

I have fallen so far behind in keeping up with my blog and keeping up my reading spreadsheet,  So, I have decided to just 'let it go' and start from square one.  I will start a brand new spreadsheet on January 1 and will challenge myself to read at least 50 books.  The last time I challenged myself to read 100 books and I read 159 in a year's time.

I think one book a week is a good challenge and hopefully, I will exceed that :-)

I recently finished two books by Richard Paul Evans, "The Walk" and "Miles to Go".

The Walk is the story of a man, from the Seattle area, who loses EVERYTHING including the love of his life and after deciding not to end his life, he packs the bare necessities and makes a decision to walk to Key West, FL, the farthest point on his map.  Along the way, his experiences and the people he encounters and the lessons they share with him,saves his life and will encourage you.

 Miles to Go is the sequel to The Walk.  Alan makes it as far as Spokane, WA before he encounters some hoodlums that jump him and stab him multiple times.  He wakes up in a hospital not able to do the very thing he set out to do, WALK.  A mysterious woman, that he happened to help earlier, on his route, gets called by the hospital and he ends up going to her home to recover and get his strength back.

As it turns out, he ends up being used to save her life before he returns to his journey months later.
The next in the series is "The Road to Grace" which is due out in 2012.  Can't wait!!!

Enjoy your day!!!

Let's Do Lunch by Roger Troy Wilson

No really, this is the title of a book I just finished.  You have to admit, the title is catchy!

The publisher provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookSneeze®.

The author, Roger Troy Wilson, lost 230 pounds and has kept it off for years.  In his book, he tells you how he came to write this book and sharing the plan that was revealed to him by God.

In his book, Roger explains the plan and then gives pointers on eating at fast food restaurants, stocking your shelves, making wise choices at salad bars and parties, conquering cravings and even gives you a 14 day meal guide and a section of recipes to get you started.
I felt that he explained the program so that anyone could follow it.  Although I, personally, would miss some of the things he suggests that you go without to lose the weight, I would be eating healthier than I am now.  It certainly does make sense to eat this way for a healthier body!  It just may be the eating program that I could incorporate into my lifestyle.  No more calculating points, weighing my food and and journaling,  you have to love that.

If you would like to check it out, here is his website:  http://www.letsdolunch.com/ 
Happy Reading,
