According to Weight Watchers, I am in the healthy weight range for my height. I definitely agree. However, with no long runs during the summer to keep me skinny, I've gained 4 pounds in the past month. That would be 48 pounds per year if I kept that up, so it stops now. Also, I really want under 5 hours for a marathon time. I think that dropping 15-20 pounds would help, a lot. I would still be well within the healthy weight range, but I would be 10% lighter. That has got to pick up the speed, right?
Now that I am focusing on eating a lot more fruits and vegetables (not to mention less overall), I went on a shopping trip this afternoon. Some thoughts while shopping:
I actually planned to make guacamole today, so I was picking up the ingredients during this trip. My shopping list for the recipe consisted of avocado, onion, lime and cilantro. I'm guessing you have to add avocado to this mix. My question is: What is in this stuff?!?
I'm try to be as "green" as possible and I bring my own shopping bags. We now need to find a better alternative to produce bags. I'm amazed at the amount of plastic in my cart.
And only four of these is the RDA for adults! Sign me up! Beats taking horse pills any day. (Special thanks to Leah for alerting me to this.)
