my book club is so, so great! we always eat great food. we always have a blast together. and most months, the books we read are wonderful!! the last two months we have been reading the hunger games series. if you remember from an earlier post
, i am a little obsessed with the books. they are phenomenal. i can not recommend them enough. most people, me included, say when i recommend them, “but i am not interested in reading a book about kids killing kids.” give it a try. it is about so much more. it is power struggles. relationships. a hero. resiliency.
so here is our group, we have added a few members since the last movie outing. we missed a couple that couldn’t make it. i am totally biased, but we are a fun group of ladies.
and because sweet abby did not want to be in the picture, something about moving and not being blog-worthy cute, i vowed to do a little write up specifically about her. abby is our nutritionist of the group, she probably has a more fancy title but basically, nutrition is her profession. abby, it was beyond encouraging having you compliment me on my weight loss. from a professional, it means so much. the encouragement to continue taking my time, not rushing on a “restriction” or “fad” diet, but focusing on nutrition as a tool for weight loss. it meant so much.
because we are a silly group that all love and support the district uprising, our nod to katniss.
and because it is now fun to do so, a look back at our first book club at the movies. this was right before our boston trip, my first 30 pounds lost. i remember loving this picture because i could start to see real changes. now i am just amazed.
we are off for a super adventurous weekend. i can’t wait to share on monday. look for a homemade “cliff bar” recipe as well! healthy snacks for road trips. hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
