I love Half Price Books stores! You know, the name is kind of misleading, because they don't only just have books, they have magazines too (and well for the record: cds, records,and movies too)! In the back you can find old issue magazines for a steal of about fifty cents a piece. So I stocked up on some Health, Fitness, and Shape magazines. I've already collected some fantastic recipes, and some really great ideas. For example - I found this acronym I plan on living by.

DCBA. Diet first, Cardio second, Building muscle third, and Abs last. This comes from Myatt Murphy, author of 'The Body You Want in the Time You Have.' How brilliant! So he says spend 60 minutes a day preparing healthier meals. Spend 20 minutes a day three-five times a week doing cardio. Spend 15 minutes a day three times a week strength training. Lastly, spend 5 minutes a day three times a week doing ab exercises.

How doable and practical is that? I haven't been 'cleared' from the doc yet to do anything more than lifting the baby. Thinking happy thoughts that when I go see her tomorrow she'll clear me to do whatever I darn well please! So because of my restrictions, tonight's 'cardio' will be walking with the fam, enjoying this crazy 70 degree weather in November.


  1. I'm actually glad we don't have any of those stores here. I would ever be able to afford groceries again if we did! :)

    Definitely going to check out that Myatt person. What kinda of name is Myatt anyway? Hmmmm...

  2. Girrrrrrrrrl! Almost every time we go to target we have to go to half price books. Liam even made the place 'his own' by doing a little 'business' there. Its official, the whole fam is for half price books!

    Ps- Myatt is a man. Isn't that interesting? I thought it to be more of an effeminate name. The things we learn! :)
