The 17 Day Diet

 So Spring is here and I've been noticing that I've put on a few pounds over the Winter. I don't feel all that amazing about it ...ya know what I mean? The other day I was watching the show "The Doctors" and they happened to be talking about weight loss and covered this book "The 17 Day Diet". Now since so many of my friends have been discussing weight problems and health lately I thought I would look into this book some more to see if it was just another gimmick or if this 17 day diet could really work. "The Doctors" seemed to think it was a good diet plan...one that included a healthy lifestyle change and not just a quick way to lose a few pounds. I bought the book yesterday and here's what I plan to do. I am going to start this plan next week and will blog everyday to tell you how it's going. I will share any success or failure I may incur and then you can judge for yourself if this is a good book/diet. I am crossing my fingers and hoping it will prove to be everything it says that it is and I hope it helps any of you who are looking for a plan that works and helps you get healthier!! It's only 17 days....anyone can stick to a diet for 17 days right??!!

My Review of ENCHANTED

  It's fitting that I should finish this wonderful fairytale today of all days...Sunday's grand adventure and magical story of love and redemption ensnared me with all it's glory. Alethea Kontis made me remember why I used to beg my dad to read me fairytales at bedtime. She reminded me why I still wish upon a star and believe in true love. This enchanted story about a girl named Sunday will make you dream of your own fairytale and yearn for the next installment of this bespelled series!!
     Sunday is the dreamer in all of us. She dreams of wondrous adventures and has the gift of imagination. Her Fairy Godmother gifted Sunday with the power to have whatever she writes comes true. You'd think this would be an amazing  attribute, but Sunday learns that with every gift, there is a price. So Sunday only writes about the things that actually happen to her own family. Lucky for us, it's all wonderful!
     Sunday shares her burden and delightful tales with a frog she meets at a wishing well in the forest near her home and in Kontis's Fairytale Land, all those beloved childhood tales spring to life in a new way breathing magic with every creature. We meet so many endearing characters from old stories spun anew and it's done in such a way that you barely notice the transition. Kontis incorporates these characters with a fluidity that is natural and compelling. 
     I won't spoil the book for you, but needless to say...this is one of my "Don't even have to read the cover blurb to buy!" kind of books!  It's available for pre-order now!http://www.amazon.com/Enchanted-Alethea-Kontis/dp/0547645708/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1332625525&sr=1-2
