Morning peeps! :D
I woke up with excitement to run on The Running Beast this morning. :) I quickly got changed and headed downstairs (equipped with the Britney CD on my Ipod of course). I had a great 3 mile run:
- 3 mins warm-up, incline 7
- 3 mile run @ 5.6 mph, incline 7
- cool down walking
- Total duration: 38 mins.
- Max heart rate: 176 (90% of max)
- Avg heart rate: 159 (82% of max)
For some reason my run felt a bit harder than normal and my heart rate was higher than on my old treadmill- must just be a difference in machine??
I found another box of books to unpack! I knew I was missing some…
Books shown above:
Confessions of a Beauty Editor
The Last Lecture
Regaining Your Self
In Defense of Food (haven’t had time to read yet!)
The Essential Natural Health Bible
Being a beauty freak, I was naturally interested when I heard about this book coming out by Allure Magazine’s beauty Editor, Linda Wells.
However, I was a bit disappointed. The book is quite a bit of fluff and is geared toward a beginner level of beauty know-how. I’m not saying I know everything about beauty tips and tricks, but most of the stuff in this book was fairly basic and I had heard it before. I haven’t finished it yet, just sort of browsed through different sections, so perhaps my opinion will change once I finish it.
However, I LOVED, love, loved The Black Book of Hollywood Beauty Secrets! I originally saw Kym Douglas on The View and I knew I had to buy this book. I read it from cover to cover and it was filled with tons of beauty tricks that I hadn’t heard of before.
I am going to be featuring some of these celebrity secrets in the blog over the next week or so! Stay tuned!
Yes, I kept my two favourite wedding magazines from when I was planning my wedding! I figure it would be neat to show my kids some day. :D I looked over these magazines a gazillion times for ideas. They were filled with great info!
The book shelf- the top shelf is old university books- haha! Out of sight, out of mind, right?? After 7 years of university, I am happy to put them ‘away’.
Well, I hope you all have a fabulous & fit day! One more day til Friday! :D See you later for my thoughts on the Britney Interview…and more.
It is the trouble that never comes that causes the loss of sleep.

My favorite when I was planning my wedding was a Martha Stewart Weddings – so many great ideas!
Have a great day! I’m looking forward to the rest of the day’s posts!
Most likely the difference in machine – you’ll get used to it!!
I own that “Confessions of a Beauty Editor” book too!! :-)
Enjoy your Thursday!!
“In Defense of Food” is FASCINATING!!
I have that same Martha Stewart Weddings! Those were my favorite magazines by far, so beautiful!
I am impressed that you can run 3 miles on an incline of 7!
I almost bought the Black Book of Hollywood Beauty Secrets. Maybe now I’ll get it.
I just finished “In Defense of Food,” and I think you’ll really like it! Some of it is common sense but a lot of it is really thought provoking.
