One’s a stud, the other a dud “Book Review”

41xvqe9ptcl-_sx337_bo1204203200_I read “Vlog Like a Boss” in less than 2 days. IT WAS AMAZING! Seriously feeling so inspired! And no, I haven’t started vlogging yet. What’s stopping me? It is about me wanting to get it perfect the first time. I want to make sure I look okay but I always feel like vlogging first thing in the morning or at night when all my makeup is off and I just look a frazzled mess. I also have a great plan for my first video but I don’t want to waste it on a “not very well done” first vlog. So perfection is getting in the way of me just doing what I really want to do…vlog. I know once I make the first one there will be no stopping me! I also really want to get started this month so when April rolls around I can participate in VEDA (Vlog Every Day in April). So, I need to light a fire under my ass and just do this first video. My brother works with editing programs for his job and has offered to give me a tutorial on his camera and editing though! So that’s exciting! Maybe I’ll feel more prepared after that. I’m giving myself a deadline. First vlog MUST be done by Saturday the 11th of March.

However, I’m almost done with The Engine 2 Diet and I’m not enjoying it as much as I’d hoped. Besides the fact that it’s made me extremely paranoid about having cancer or dying of a heart attack, the diet itself sounds dull. But the way it’s talked about is like it’s the most amazing thing in the world and it’s the ONLY diet that will allow you to survive ANY disease. Don’t get me wrong, as a vegan I totally believe in the benefits of a plant based diet. I just hate the tone of this book. Don’t know exactly what it is, just not a fan. I was really hoping to embark on the E2 diet come April when I focus on my food habits, but I’m reconsidering that. Yes, there are definite things I will take away and use, but not everything.

I didn’t mean for this post to turn into a book review, but there you have it.
