Week 3 Challenge

I am writing to you from Denver Colorado….where we are watching the Women’s Final Four Basketball Tournament!  Did I mention that we were on TV (only because we sat in front of Condoleezza Rice….I thought maybe it was my bright yellow shirt and my sunny personality). That doesn’t mean I am not thinking about your fitness!!!!  Are you ready for the WEEK 3 CHALLENGE??

In week 3 our challenge is to get 5 cups of Veggies and Fruits per day-

Preferably 3 cups of veggies and 2 cups of fruits.


Ok, everyone Spring Training is underway.....today was the first day of our 4 week session of Seattle's Best Boot Camp.  We will be having a different challenge each week.....our first challenge is to get a minimum of 60 0z (approximately 8 8 oz glasses) of water daily for 7 days.

Nuts vs Potatoes!

Now that Summer is officially here it is time to hit the farmer's markets for some healthy snacks!!  My neighborhood market, the  Wallingford Farmer's Market is awesome!   I came across an interesting article in the Washington Post about a Harvard Study which details foods that keep weight off and foods that cause weight gain over time.

Confused by Carbs?

Oh those carbs….they sure have gotten a bad rap over the last decade!  I remember the good old days when ‘white rice’ (which happens to be my people’s food and the bad mouthing of it would make my Japanese grandma roll over in her grave) was a not a bad word.
