31 day challenge update

Hi folks,

October is SOOO over.  Which means the end of my second 31 day challenge – no desserts for 31 days!  Even I was a bit skeptical about accomplishing this, but I did – and only used 1 of 2 cheat days.

Naturally, you might expect me to have been gorging out on sweets these past few days…but I haven’t.  My intent was to curb my crazy sweet tooth cravings – into something a bit more normal and controllable.  So far, so good.

So November brings a new 31 day challenge (actually started on October 31st since November only has 30 days).  I plan to read for pleasure…at least 10 minutes every day.  NO CHEAT DAYS.  That might seem ridiculously easy/lame for some of you voracious readers…but if you knew how crazy my life has been…then making time for this is truly a challenge.  In fact, in these first few days, I’ve read exactly 10 minutes each day (even getting up 10 minutes early to make sure I get it done for the day).

I have a number of flights coming up in the coming two weeks – Vegas, Orlando, Dallas, and LA – so reading then shouldn’t be an issue.  But navigating 10 minutes of reading into my 10+ hour work days…that’s not so easy.  A girl’s gotta sleep!

Any good book recommendations?  Let’s see how many I can get through.  Currently reading: The Making of a Chef: Mastering Heat at the Culinary Institute of America by Michael Ruhlman.  So far…pretty boring.  I figured I’d love getting a glimpse into the top culinary school in the country – but I guess I’d rather just watch Top Chef on TV. 🙂
