We are starting week 8 of our Biggest Loser weight loss challenge and I think it may be time for a movie!
When I find myself straying from my diet and wanting to drive thru McDonalds or grab a bag of chips and a cupcake, I know it is time to get back to what I call my healthy mind play list on Netflix. I have the following three movies in my list at all times just ready to hit play. So, what I would like you to do this week is watch one or all of them and report back to us right here on the blog!
- Food Inc.
- Forks Over Knives
- Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead
