OT - Tone-up Tuesday

Aniki's picture

Are you a runner? Do you enjoy being outside, your feet pounding the pavement? Or chasing a deer or rabbit along a trail in the forest? I will never understand the people who prefer running machines over the great outdoors. I miss my running days! I wasn’t much for running on a track – I preferred getting out in nature, fields, woods, along the beach. Nothing but the sound of birds, my heart pounding, my breathing, crashing waves, and the occasional sound of a startled deer or bobcat (he looked ticked!!)

Happy Tuesday, STalkers! How goes it?

What do you do when you're craving sugar? Do you give in to your craving or do you have a satisfying substitute?

I am a chronic insomniac and caffeine does nothing for me when I’m tired, so I’ve developed a bad habit of using sugar to give me boosts of energy. It’s a habit I need to break, so I need some substitutes.

Prunes
Prunes have a bad rep. They’re dried plums and naturally sweet. (Much tastier AND moister than raisins, IMO!). A serving of six is just 100 calories.

Happy Tuesday, STalkers! How are you doing with your health/exercise plan? Craving some sugar? Read on!!

We need sugar to survive, both physically and emotionally (where's my Mint Mackinaw Island Fudge?!). You can have too much of a good thing (ugh, I ate it ALL), but do NOT cut out ALL fruits when trying to limit your sugar intake. Fruits contain important nutrients like vitamin C, fiber, and antioxicants. Bonus: Increasing your intake of fruits and veggies has been shown to reduce your cancer and mortality risk.
