Better Health Article: 30 Healthy Picks- 30 healthy snacks to curb your hunger and help you get to your next meal

Friday QOTD: What is your favorite healthy snack?

I love turkey wrapped in lettuce.  I also like to eat mixed nuts, cucumber slices, grapes, bananas, apple slices, and granola bars.

I got to the gym at 6am today and ran 2 miles then did weights for 25 minutes, and abs and stretching for the last 15 minutes.  I love to get my workout done early in the morning.  I'm debating going twice a day 2 or 3 times a week so I can get in a full weight workout, and then a full cardio workout at least 3 times/week.  I just don't want to do too much and get injured.  Need to find a good balance.  I feel good, though, overall with my workouts and eating.  I've been consistent and that's the key to seeing results.  Even on my "not-so-great" workout days, I just have to remember that a workout is better than no workout.  Setting a consistent routine is really important.

My Comments to You:

Celeste-  Just added you to the Participant List.  YAY!  So glad you want to join.  (By the way, not even sure you have 11 lbs to lose, but I'll take your word for it.)  Can't wait to hear about your journey (and continue to have you as my workout buddy a couple times/week. ;) )

Tammy- Sorry you've been sick, but great job with your sweet tooth.  Hopefully you're feeling a lot better now, and with this warmer weather you can get out a little more.  Can't wait for summer weather!

Ash- Is Baleigh still sick, too?  It's so hard to stay motivated when you feel crappy.  Give yourself a little break (just a little one ;) ).  No, I haven't heard of Greek yogurt.  Is it good?  Did you get it at a regular grocery store or did you have to get it at a health foods place?

I am really loving Greek yogurt lately. Such a great source of protein. And since my kids don't like it I never have to share.

You are doing so awesome, Jamie! Sadly this early morning thing has been harder than I thought. Makes me think I should change my goals. My rarely see my husband unless it is after 9 or 10, which makes going to bed early hard. So I am just counting if I get a workout in every day. And make better food choices as a successful day.

Jamie, yoga went good! I am so NOT flexible, but I try to push myself and my the end of the 60 minute class I can almost touch my toes (I know, embarrassing!) Anyhow yesterday I did not work out, I tried to keep my eating portions small though. To make up for my lapse i'm working out tomorrow and I worked out longer today. I'm actually doing 30 minutes a day which is more than my goal!!

I did some measurements today...

Weight 138lbs
Waist 30 in
Hips 36.5 in
Bust 36 in
Thighs 21 in

Lets hope for results!

I love frozen grapes (try them, they're awesome), apple slices, rice cakes, edamame, and granola bars. I'm also a huge yogurt fan and the Greek yogurt is something I'm trying out because it's so good for you. It's got twice as much protein as regular yogurt, also less sodium and less carbs. I'm just trying to find a brand and flavor that I really like without having to add a ton of junk to it.

I rocked it today on the treadmill. I've noticed that if I don't wear my contacts or glasses, then I run better because I can't see the time/pace and I can just focus on whatever song I'm listening to. I totally know I can make the 3 miles in 30 minutes by your birthday...I'm just nervous about the Hood to Coast because I need to at least be able to run a 9:30 mile and that's running anywhere from 3-5 miles at a time. Ugh.

Kale and Rowdy said...

The comment about not wearing contacts or glasses while running made me laugh so hard! I'm totally going to try it! However, knowing that my goal is sort of public has really helped me to be consistent in my workouts. I'm just using a personal trainer program on my treadmill during my little one's nap time. I hope more people leave comments about snacks. I could really use some ideas, I've never before watched what I ate. It sure has been an awakening! No wonder I was gaining...

Can I just say I'm dying still with no coke! I thought the need for it would pass but it hasn't. Maybe it's because I've started in on the lovely pregnancy insomnia but I've wanted a coke sooo bad the last couple days. I finally got a prescription called in for some Ambien and hopefully that will help though. Darren also got 2 buddies at work to join him with no soda, kind of cool.

As far as snacks go, the healthier ones that I like that I cant think of off the top of my head are, apples w/ or w/out peanut butter or almond butter on them, string cheese, hummus with carrots or celery (costco sells them in little individual cups that I love for an on the go snack) grapes, I cut up a whole stock of celery and a ton of carrots at the beginning of the week and put them in baggies and munch on them all week long, avocados, I will cut one up and put some on a sandwich for lunch and then the leftovers of it I'll put lemon juice and salt and pepper on and eat it as a snack later, I eat strawberries and blueberries by the bucket full, I either just throw them into a bowl together or put them with granola and yogurt or add them to a small bowl of cereal to snack on. My sister got me hooked on greek yogurt at Christmas and my favorite is the Zoi brand (they sell it at Winco and I dont know where else) the strawberry and blueberry are my favorite. I know most might consider it a meal but I also have small salads a lot to snack on. I make a large salad every other day and just scoop out of it whenever I'm feeling hungry but not starving for something to eat. I keep it simple and just have lettuce, cucumbers, carrots and tomatoes in it and then change up the dressings. If I'm craving something sweet I'll do a raspberry vinaigrette or if I want something salty I'll do a balsamic vinaigrette.

I'm a BIG snacker. I graze throughout the day on small snacks but try to keep them mostly healthy.
