Knowledge is Power

A few weeks back when the doctor started talking to me about eating only whole grain breads and pastas I thought it would be easy.  So many products on the shelves today say “made with whole grain” or “all-natural” (or some version similar to these).  One might think eating healthy is a snap with all these “low fat,” “whole grain” foods available conveniently packaged waiting on the end cap of every grocery aisle.  Did you know, though, that majority of these products that claim to be “healthy” are, in fact, not?

Here is some information I found today while perusing the Internet:

The Best (and Worst) Nutrition Bars for Women

How Whole is Whole Grain?

25 Diet-Busting Foods You Should Never Eat

The 100 Healthiest Foods

On another note…I spent more than 3 hours at the gym this week in total.  Can I just say again how much I *love* the gym?  I truly feel so happy and energized when I walk out of there.  Actually, I wanted to stay longer today, but my chicklets were anxious for me to get home for our bedtime rituals.  Of course, they won.  I am looking forward to Monday.  I am meeting with a personal trainer, and I am excited!

Weigh day is creeping up on me again.  I have not decided whether I am excited or apprehensive about it just yet.  Probably because I know I have been doing exceptionally well this week, but I have spent quite a bit of time lifting weights.  So, we will see what the friendly scale has to say to me on Sunday morning.

How is your week going so far?  Have you met any milestones/goals lately, or are you getting close?
