Tennis in the Rain

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

We played tennis for 50 mins today. Really enjoying this sport... a LOT! You forget you're working out, which is awe-some!!! We even went to the gym afterward for an extra strength workout. Too bad Mom was too sick to join us today. Love you, Mom!

    Carbs aren't a bad thing long as you eating whole grains. Whole grain are best , not processed sugar and white flour are really bad for the body. Eating a diet with food closest to natural is healthier for your body.

    It is essential for the body to eat grains because starch is what fuels all energy processes within all of our cells. The body breaks carbohydrates down into glucose, which breaks down into a product called adenosine triphosphate which is our cells' energy currency.

    If you eat only protein and fat and fruits/veggies (which are essentially carbs but still need additional processing), you will still get the energy you need, but your body will need to go to extra lengths to convert it into ATP. It will need to go through alternate pathways to become glucose, and will create by-products which will put a strain on your kidneys.

    Another awesome blog!! Yea that pasta can be a bit high in calories, not to mention the goodies that was put on I am sure that with all the tennis "in the rain" today you corrected those sneaky calories and burned them right off. Hope that you have a wonderful evening....and hey the new sneakers are nice....yours and Bob's. Take care you two. Kelly
