2.5 mile treadmill run (no idea of time, I just fit in what I could before I had to teach a class)
Taught a BOSU class
Ran 3.0 miles with the stroller to the park
Ran 7.2 miles on the treadmill (8:00- 8:20 minute mile pace)
Hmmm… so that’s a total of 12.2 miles for the day. Was hoping to just get in about 8 or 9, but our “hooky day” was a darn busy one and the opportunities were there so I took them.
Want to know who finally decided to do his thing in the big boy potty two days in a row?
Want to know what we count while we run in the stroller?
Basketball hoops of course. Today the total was four. It was a bit of a disappointment.
Want to know how the cool kids swing at the playground?
Want to know what is a necessity on days that naps don’t happen?
Want to see who now follows me on Twitter?
(Not sure how I feel about that one.)
Want to know what Judah told me we needed to go to the store to buy?
Jalapeños and salad. Interesting.
Want to see the cooler than cool Pro Compression Sock of the Month for March?
Want to see my dinner experiment that turned out surprisingly well?
Want to see what random dessert I ate?
I made this Chia Goodness and topped it with strawberries, cinnamon, Stevia and vanilla soymilk.
Not too shabby.
Want to know what I learned from Dr. Oz while on the treadmill?
- Packaged foods are filled with sugar, salt and fat. Companies do lab tests to find the perfect combination or amount of sugar to add so people will keep eating them and want to buy more.
- For sugary cereals, they have kids taste test. (Confession- We’ve been eating way too many chocolate Frosted Flakes over here lately.)
- The worst packaged snack for you is potato chips because of the combination of salt, sugar and fat.
- Even though a processed food’s label says that the trans fat is 0, there can still be partially hydrogenated oils in it. “Partially hydrogenated oil” is just another name for trans fat and companies sneak it in by using smaller amounts. Read the labels. Trans fats are the worst for you.
Dang, I got home and checked a bunch of labels in our pantry after that. We’re pretty good, but seriously, watching that show made me want to stay far away from packaged snack foods.
Want to know why I‘m choosing to stay away from kabocha just for a bit?
Well, it was just becoming too much. I was eating at least one a day. Not a big deal since I eat a lot anyway, but when I really thought about how much time and money I was spending on that dang squash, I decided I could go a little while without it.
Sure, I missed it today, but heck, I swear I had more time because I wasn’t spending 20 minutes cutting one up. Ha.
Okay, want to know what I’m going to do right now?
I just read this article on the Competitor website that says it will make you faster.
So…. good night!
Your turn- Want to tell me something? Anything?
