I was supposed to meet up with a bunch of the girls that ran Sunday's half-marathon today for breakfast, but I was so tired this morning that I decided to just stay at home and be lazy. It's weird, I went from insomniac to sleeping like a rock over the past week. Normally, I'm bouncing out of bed at 6:00, but lately I've been dragging myself out of bed at 7ish. I'm thinking it may have something to do with all the miles I've been running recently.
Anyway, I decided to watch a film called Hungry for Change online. It's free to watch online until March 31st. I really liked the film Food, Inc. and this is by the same producers. I wish I had watched it before I tried my "real foods challenge" last month. It's very eye-opening about sugar, high fructose corn syrup, aspartame, and all kinds of stuff that harms your body.
I LOVED this film, and I'm probably going to buy it so that I can watch it again and again when I need a reminder of why I need to cut back on the sugar ;) The film recommends juicing, and I don't think I will ever hop on that bandwagon, but I am willing to add more fruits and veggies to my diet. I was so inspired by the film that I went to the fruit/veggie market after watching and picked up a lot of produce. I got all of this for $28 (and that's including an 8 oz wedge of parmesan cheese $$):
One of the things that the film points out is that you shouldn't worry about cutting things OUT of your diet, but focus more on fitting things IN--like the veggies and fruits. Once you fit those in, the other stuff starts to get pushed out.
Anyway, check out the film, it's worth your time!! And it's only free until March 31st.
I was reading my Runner's World magazine today and came across this page that seemed was printed just for me:
I was just notified today that my blog was nominated for Fitness Magazine's 2012 Fitterati blog awards for "Best Weight Loss Blog". Thanks so much to whomever nominated me! However, the other nominees have been up for about a month now, so I'm way behind the game. I have no hope of winning, but if you'd like to vote, you just click this badge:
I think you have to register on their site, which I know is a pain in the ass, so I totally understand if you don't want to! But it IS kind of embarrassing not having any votes... ;)
