For all the viewers/readers of Hunger Games and Divergent…here is why Tris would crush Katniss. Now if you only watched the movies, I would have to say that Katniss may come across as tougher than Tris, but here is why that is not the case.
Point 1: Katniss was willing to die for her sister, Tris was willing to die for her boyfriend. Tie.
Point 2: Tris was trained for quite some time for combat, while Katniss was minorly prepped. +1 Tris
Point 3: Katniss needed Peeta to survive her nightmares. Tris can handle sleeping through the night. +1 Tris
Point 4: Katniss strings along 2 guys. Tris is able to set her sights on who she loves and keep him. +1 Tris
Point 5: Tris ran into dangerous situations many times to save others and even took on her own boyfriend. +1 Tris
Point 6: Katniss was put into dangerous situatons, but was mostly concerned with saving her own skin than the rest of the world. Actually as I type this, I am guessing Tris probably would have stayed with Gale rather than Peeta, which is another plus for Tris, so I give this +2 for Tris.
I hope my ultra serious synopsis brought a smile to your face. 🙂
I am always looking for new workouts, healthy eating tips and things of the like. I also know my body pretty well, so know my trouble areas (even if others try to make me feel good but saying there are none). 😉
My thighs and my triceps are my toughest areas to tone. There are different times when they are more in shape than others, but I have a hard time getting that “cut” look if you will. I finally found a pretty easy arm workout that may actually work. I am beginning to see small signs that it may actually give me the look I want. Sooo…I thought I would share. Enjoy!
I am also very interested in eating healthy, but often cave to the sugar monster. Sadly once I cave it is difficult to recover. Sugar is addictive to me…seriously. blah! I am a huge fan of cereal, though, but it needs to be treated as a dessert in my opinion. There is a ton of sugar packed in those boxes. I am also skeptical of protein cereals, because even those that claim to have a high protein content seem to have double the carbs. I used to shy away from Kashi thinking it was just the new fad brand, but I am a new fan of their 7 Whole Grains Puffed Rice Cereal…low cal, no sugar, no flour. Add a banana and some 30 calorie almond milk and you have a filling meal that is pretty healthy. 🙂 And the 30 calorie almond milk is a winner to me…add cinnamon or vanilla and you have your own non-additive, non-sugar, tasty cereal maker. I am also a fan of Special K Protein, because while the carbs are still higher than the grams of protein, they are the lowest that I have found.
That’s all for my random Thursday health and workout update.
I have been waiting over a year for this book, the third in the series. I am a HUGE fan of the Divergent and Insurgent books! After waiting so long, I do not feel it is truly fair to rate this book…there was a long and large build up. It took me a little longer to get into than the first two, but once in, I was hooked. Veronica Roth is talented! I did feel that this book read more like a movie than a book, but let’s face it, it will likely be in movie form before we know it. I hope so anyway! I figured out how it would end early on. She left a little bit of room for the what if and I had my own ending in mind that I knew she wouldn’t do, but I completely understand why she ended it the way she did. It was the only way to bring the series full circle and make a clean and closed ending to the series. I applaud Veronica Roth for this series…it is captivating and unique. I do like the first 2 better than the last, but I still like the last, especially for a 3rd book in a series! 🙂 You should definitely read and enjoy!
