ewww... Sauerkraut!!

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I have hated sauerkraut my entire life. I have always thought it was nasty...

While I was in the shower on New Year's Eve, I all of a sudden developed a craving for it.

Sauerkraut is one of my new favorite foods. I am now in love with it. I now know what I was missing all of those years. That stuff is amazing and soo low in calories! Yumm!!

Support group was good tonight. We had a local Yoga teacher come in and talk to our group and also go over some great relaxation and stretching exercises with us. I have been thinking about taking Yoga, but I am still not sure. The only time I am able to in on Monday (at my gym and the wellness center) but I also have Personal Training on Monday. I am not sure if I can do both. I will have to consult with Olivia, my trainer.

I went to the gym today before group. I am pretty proud of myself. I accomplished 2 things.

1. After my warm up on the ARC Trainer, I went over to the free weights section where all of the boys were lifting, and joined right in. I claimed a bench and some dumbbells and did my thing. I did several arm exercises, and was overall pleased with my workout.

2. After my ST, I went to the treadmill and did intervals. The biggest thrill is I was able to run, as in maintain a speed of 5/mph, for 0.25 miles. Yes! I ran for 1/4 of a mile without stopping!!! I don't think I have been able to run that far since I was 12!

All in all... it was an awesome day!!

    The unpasteurized raw sauerkraut is really good for you if you don't heat it enough to kill the good guys. Great probiotics in those lacto-fermented veggies!

    I never liked sauerkraut until I went to Germany. It's everywhere, and so good. I eat Claussen's now that I'm back in the states.

    Sauerkraut is a favorite in our family. It's also good luck to eat pork and sauerkraut on New Year's Day in the PA Dutch culture.

    I have been addicted to sauerkraut all my life! On Reubens, on hotdogs, hamburgs, with kielbasa, or even just plain out of the package/jar! Is very nice with sesame seeds on it, too. It's one of those foods I will miss for a bit. Really miss. But, it's worth it!

    So proud of you for getting in all that ST, and OMG! You ran! Do you know, I don't think I've actually RAN since I had to chase my kids around. Something else to look forward to. Used to love to play softball, and volleyball, and other things. Looking forward to doing that again!
