1. Photo taken at exactly 8:35 a.m. My mid-morning snack was eaten when most people are still eating breakfast. Each day I start eating my snacks earlier and earlier and get hungry for lunch at ten. Picture of bag after eating 38 wheat thins already, those are always the first to go and the pretzels are saved to be wrapped with string cheese.
Billy, I hope you are okay with doubling our grocery budget for the next few months…instead of 3 snacks a day, I now need 6.
2. Before I get into this tangent, I KNOW I am not the best example when it comes to eating fast food and my ice cream portion sizes are out of control, but we are all working on things right:)
The unit we are on in health right now is nutrition and today we talked about portion sizes and fast food. While getting the lesson ready I came across some crazy things about restaurants/portions etc.
Portion sizes. 20 years ago and now:
“This year Americans will spend over $110 billion on fast food, more than they’ll spend on movies, books, magazines, newspapers, videos and recorded music combined.”
“The typical teenage boy in the US now gets about 10% of his daily calories form soda.”
“American children now get about one quarter of their total vegetable servings in the form of potato chips and french fries.”
Runners World just posted a study talking about how people that ate a lot of fast food were 51% more likely to be diagnosed with depression compared to people that didn’t eat very much fast food!
3. Exactly 3 more days until my spring break officially starts. As I was trying to think about what to do I started wondering about what I did last year during spring break….I couldn’t remember but my blog remembers and because I am cool I went back and read through last year’s posts.
It went a little something like this: Found out I had a femoral stress fracture, did a lot of weights with my sister followed directly by eating broccoli and cupcakes, went on a road trip with my sister, tried to heal my bones by overdosing on the calcium found in froyo, and watched Billy rock his baseball games!
I also cut out the sharing part on the swedish fish bag (so that Billy wouldn’t get any weird ideas that he could have any) after going to pizza factory and while watching Make It or Break It:
I have a feeling this year’s Spring Break will be identical, minus the whole broken legs thing. I am still trying to convince my sister to take a road trip with me.
Please help Joy out with her fundraiser that she is doing for St. Jude’s hospital HERE!
Did you drink soda as a kid/teen/college student? Did you eat fast food as a kid/teen/college student very often?
Do you usually eat a morning snack? What time? What time do you eat lunch?
Who has had a stress fracture before? Where was it?
Pretty please tell me some tangents about you and your day!!!
