Day 5 of my 100 day Challenge

Thursday, March 01, 2012

I am using my blog to track my 100 day challenge results for my spark team "The Power of P!nk!"

Each Day Award Yourself With The Appropriate Emoticons for completing the task!
1. Stay within your calorie/ nutritional targets daily
2. Exercise for at least 20 minutes daily
3. Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily
4. Learn 1 new thing about nutrition/exercise and share it.
5. Listen to a P!NK song and/or write in your 100 day journey

Day 5 I enjoyed exercising outside for a change. It was 66 degrees here (What??? In Indiana?? In February???) On the down side I seem to have come down with a cold. Hopefully it won't last too long.

What exactly are trans fats?
Trans fatty acids are found naturally in animal fats, including butter, but only in small quantities. They are common, unnatural components of many processed fats, especially partially hydrogenated oils. Partial hydrogenation turns liquid oils into semisolid fats, prolonging shelf life in processed foods. Margarine, vegetable shortening and most commercial baked goods contain these artificially hardened fats and, trans fats. Trans fatty acids are thought to be just as bad, if not worse for the heart and arteries than saturated fats. They increase total cholesterol, raise LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, and lower HDL (“good”) cholesterol. Beyond that, they may have adverse effects on cell membranes and the immune system, and may promote cancer and aging.

    And today it's cold again, with tornadoes tomorrow! It's a wonder we're all not sick with the see-saw weather.

I try not to consume anything with hydrogenated oils. I don't need to look or feel any older than I already do!
