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…


Despite the stuffy nose, sore throat, and irritated lungs, (thanks forest fire arsonist) I decided to hop over to the clubhouse hamster wheel for the second day in a row. woot woot!

My set up. I watched Colbert instead of Food Network.
My accomplishment.
I was into my 2nd mile when I noticed that the guy who came in after I did, opened the windows. I had to ask him if I could shut them. It is orange air quality, and I can't handle the smoke while I am breathing heavily. I can't handle it breathing normally.

Sorry, but I can't crop from a screen shot on the BF's laptop. Stupid Windows.
I think he opened the windows because he wanted me off the treadmill quicker. Oh well, he got the TM when I was done and I worked my arms pretty hard with some weights. Rows, presses, bi's & tris & delts, oh my. I still have some DOMS from push-ups, moving stuff from my storage unit and a whole lotta boxes with a hand truck at work this week. I mean, my arms hurt and were so shaky on Wednesday, that I couldn't lift my arm to put a cookie into my mouth. Yeah, it was that bad. Proof I need to spend more time on my upper body strength. Planks are just not enough for me.

Post-workout sweat-fest
Anyways, today is the 2nd day in the row that I have cleaned up my eating and logging it in on The Daily Plate. I kinda overindulged a little more then I should have this past week (or two), and my weight is up. I think that cleaning up my eating is better for me the totally cutting calories drastically. I think I may have done less calories then I should have yesterday because I was kinda cranky in the afternoon and the middle of my work shift I was so hungry. With my personal activity level, 1200-1300 is a big no for me. 1400-1600 is ok depending on the day. 1700+ is a "I'm having a little too much food fun."

Not food fun, but it made me sad that he committed suicide off my counter when I was making my post-workout breakfast this afternoon.

Question for the legal eagles - Can I sue, or class action lawsuit the dude that started the forest fire because of the health issues I am experiencing from the increased bad air quality?

What was your workout today?

What do you do when you want to slim down a few pounds? Clean up your diet? Count calories? Increase activity?


  1. Way to go! To answer your last few questions, I focus on increasing activity. I, of course, watch my diet but as long as I'm burning more calories than I consume everyday, I don't stress over it. Just burn, burn, burn those calories!

    1. Thanks for the reply. I will try adding more activity to my day.
