The other day, my daughter asked me to pick up pizza from Domino's for her and her family while I was in town. So, I decided to pick up a pizza from my husband and me also. To make as long boring story short, about a half hour after I am finished eating, my daughter calls and asks me if I enjoyed eating "Asian hair". It turns out she was curious as to what she was eating and discovered one of the ingredients in the crust originated from hair. My son-in-law tried to make it seem not so bad and tell me that maybe they used horse hair instead of human hair.
Needless, to say, I was totally grossed out. I am not sure what happened to the leftover pizza, but I know that I did not eat it.
I was going through my emails the other day and came upon a link to Mike Adams' page and I started following links so I am not sure where this quote comes from exactly but it stated,
"People will eat anything that is marketed to them as food."
That is so true; just look at the items on 2/3 of the shelves in the grocery store. The majority of the "stuff" that they call food is not really food, but a food-like substance.
So, my goal for April is to eat food, real food. I am going to read labels on everything packaged that I buy and if I figure a thrid grader cannot read the list of ingredients, then it will be put back on the shelf. That and the 5-ingredient rule.
I think following those two rules will help me focus on eat real food.

I finally got rid of those peanut buster parfaits I was wearing since February. and I feel so much better. As a matter of fact, the last one I had tasted nasty; and I wondered why I craved it in the first place.
My training for the half marathon is still on schedule, a little over a month to go now. I have a 12.5 mile run scheduled for this weekend. I am not sure where I am going to run. I ususally run near my home but the farmers are working in the fields now and putting down manure - it smells so bad. I got nauseous on my last run. I tried running the other direction through the woods, but got paranoid when I think I came too close to a skunk.
It seems like I an running slower since I started to train for the half marathon and using the walk/run method. It seemed like I could not run more than 2 minutes at a time. So, My last run, I decided to see If I could go the 5k distance. I did it (although I stopped for a few seconds because I saw a critter in the woods. It was just a deer, so I continued on. I worry about meeting a wolf or bear on my run). MY time was actually a minute slower jogging the distance without the walk breaks. But just knowing i could still do was reassuring.
After my half marathon, I am going to do running mate media's Fastest 5k program again.
Well, I guess htis is enough rambling on and on. Ihope you all have a wonder day!

WOW! I actually did an 11 miler over the weekend. The weather was great for running, but the roads were still icey and/or slushy in some areas. My route was an out and back and then a loop; so, i went over a essection of the road three times. The first pass, it was all ice and I had to walk carefully. The second pass some of the ice melted where the tires tracks were and I was able to have steady footing but it was muddy. The third pass ( about 2 hours and 15 minutes later) I was amazed at how much of the ice and snow had melted.

It's been awhile since I blogged. I have been busy with school work. February is the month the Dairy Queeens reopen for the season here. I found myself going by and getting that peanut buster parfait again and again and again.
Then I started thinking of the cost. One of those parfaits costs the same as a bag of apples. Now, it is back to the "I can't afford to eat healthy" argument. One apple will satisfy my hunger and in that bag, I'll get a lot more opportunity to have another one for a lot less calories.
No excuses! Just like the Biggest Loser theme this season, I am going to start a personal challenge with no excuses and give myself no excuse to eating junk food. Since my environment is full of temptation, I am going to start with a one week challenge.
Well, here goes....
