The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World Review

This post is sponsored by The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World book by Allison Sher.

I was given a digital copy of this book. I thought that it would be good to read, even though I am a Gen X'er. There is just so much talk about the Millennial's right now that I thought that it would be good to get to know what is going on inside their head.

About the Book  The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World teaches young people everything they need to know to change the world, while building a happy, healthy adult life for themselves. It explains how our current social systems work, the challenges young people are inheriting and how millennials can step into our power to create a critical mass conversion to solve them. Everything from politics to spirituality to love relationships to education to sex to economics to mental health is covered. And it includes 50 or so juicy, true life stories from millennials across the country…

My Arms Are Burning

This is going to be a little random post of blurbs. 

My arms are burning and shaking. I did the Bob Harper Beginners Workout dvd that I picked up at the library. It was raining outside and I didn't feel like slogging in the rain or treadmill, and I had this dvd for a while, so decided today is a good day to do it.

I like the Bob DVDs. I am not a Jillian fan. Go Team Bob or Team Dolvett. This dvd is a little easier then some of his, but since I only have 12 pound dumbbells, my arms got worked for sure. I really liked the freestyle swim moves with weights.

I found this coin purse on the Purse Page and thought it was cute.

Seems like there are so many people that could carry it and have a little laugh. Or a little motivation to stop stopping and keep going. Or use it to hold my debit cards and ID when I go out for coffee or drinks with friends.

My dream purse right now is a Dior Lady Dior. Or a black Birkin. Or a Chanel that is a little bigger then the couple I have.

I am now down 11 pounds from the beginning of the year but none of my clothes fit differently. I think I am losing muscle and replacing it with fat in most places.

I felt bloated from all the water (and PMS) I had during the Robie Creek Half and I guess I looked bloated too. I do like the 1st pic and my finish line pic from the Statesman is better looking then Brightrooms.

Packet pick up for the Lake Lowell Marathon is next Friday. I am so excited. And I have mixed feelings about being given a gift of a race entry from family. I think it is great that they acknowledge something that I enjoy doing. But it is from a person who believes everyone should be skinny and has concerns about everyone's weight and looks. Weight is a constant conversation topic. So while I appreciate a gift at any time, I do not appreciate a gift with ulterior motives.

I think I am going to have to order online a Rogue Voodoo beer. I love VooDoo, have spent some time at Rogue in PDX, but now there is a beer with maple AND bacon flavoring?! And it is in a pink bottle.

That's it for me for now. What was your workout today? Races coming up soon?
