Motivation Monday - and a GIVEAWAY!

It's a long weekend I're probably relaxing, doing a little overindulging and not really thinking about how you are going to tackle this week...but if you are than this post is for you...and if you aren't than save it for tomorrow. ;)

I'm just going to jump right in with this one...have you heard of a book called The Plan? Author Lyn-genet Recitas has come up with a diet plan that has been dubbed The Anti Diet because it's not all about counting calories and starving yourself. This diet is about finding out what foods work for you and your body, and everyone is different. Once you know what foods your body is reactive to you will lose weight, balance hormone levels and apparently have energy through the roof. Here is a write up about the diet direct from the author's website: The Plan.

Here are a couple of links to videos explaining how it works (courtesy of the Marilyn Denis show).

This link tells you about the diet itself and how you reset your body for the first three days. This part is called the cleanse but it's unlike any cleanse you may have done before (fluids and pills).

The second part tells you how you find your reactive foods and what does and does not work for you. 

I'm really excited to try this. I know from trying out different diet plans that certain foods really don't work for me and now through a process of elimination I will be able to figure out which ones. I suspect some veggies will be triggers for me as every time I work hard at getting weight off I really up my vegetable intake and immediately get "backed up". SUPER frustrating...working so hard at diet and exercising a lot and to still have your weight go up? It's because nothing's coming out of course and not only is it frustrating, it's darn uncomfortable. So now that I've given you way too much information let's talk about the giveaway.

I want you to try this with me so not only have I ordered the book, I've ordered a second copy to give away!

There are two ways to enter, and if you do both than you will be entered twice!

The first way is to follow this blog via Bloglovin (link on the right hand side, scroll down below blog archive). Once you've done that, or if you already follow let me know in the comments section of this post.

The second way to enter is to "like" the Random Thoughts Facebook page and then share the giveaway on Facebook (if you already like the Facebook page than all you have to do is share the giveaway).

So let's do this together, I can't wait to see the results!


  1. Following and following :)

  2. I'm seriously going to order the book and try sure can't hurt. Thanks Mariah!!!

  3. I can't believe I totally forgot about this...will be doing it now for sure.
