Steady Pace

Circle of Life

Last week I did well with the exercise but sadly my Great-Grandmother passed away.  She was loved greatly and we were blessed to have her for 92 years.  I won't provide an update on last week because naturally, exercise was not the priority.


This week however, I'm off to a great start.  I ran yesterday for 50 minutes and today I started running for 11 minutes instead of 10 and ran for 33 minutes (a slow run).


My eating habits have been great.  Except for a glitch last week, I'm on a roll (fingers crossed and praying).  My meals have consisted of:

Breakfast: Smoothie (milk, banana, flaxseed and vanilla)
Post-Workout: Chocolate protein shake
Post-Post Workout: Bread (toasted) with peanut butter or Egg sandwich
Snack: Cup of green tea
Lunch: Soup or Sandwich and Salad
Snack: Yogurt with Pumpkin Seeds or Nuts and Cup of green tea
Dinner: Not so much regulated.  Trying to eat more vegetables and fewer carbs.  :)

I found some great links I'd like to share:

Ask Georgie - a nutritionist passionate about health.

Foodbuzz - a combination of food blogs to display the best content.

New Hope 360 - connecting the healthy lifestyle industry, from supply to shelf.  This link is to some delicious soup recipes.

LiveStrong.com - this is an article about the health benefits of brown rice and beans, a topic I've heard of recently.
