Team Challenge

Monday, March 11, 2013

One of the things our Mid-Mo Let's Go! Team has started is some challenges. Our first one was a virtual walk of the Katy Trail, and our goal was to complete it during January. Well, it took longer than that, so we ended up with five Monday-to-Sunday weeks dorm February through March and came up with five weekly challenges. Our first two were done on our team page, to commit to our 5 daily servings of freggies, and then to eat within our daily protein ranges. This one is probably best done with blogs.

Our current challenge is to post, with or without a picture one meal each day. Four of them have to be spread out among breakfast, lunch, supper, and snack. Then the other three can be whatever we'd like. As of now, I'm the only one signed up for this week's challenge emoticon even though it was another team member who suggested it. The intent behind this was to give some ideas to a team member stuck in a rut, or even to a new member feeling uncertain or overwhelmed about meal planning.

So today, here is my first post. This has become my favorite snack, especially post workout. It is one brown rice cake topped with 1 Tbsp chunky peanut butter (I prefer not homogenized) and then with 2 Tbsp raisins. To round out a serving of fruit, I pair it with 2 oz pomegranate juice.

222 Calories, 22 Grams of carbohydrate, 8 of fat and 6 of protein.

Now that I've met one day of our challenge, is there anyone out there who would like to join me? It's never too late, because we only require posting on our challenges once each week. That way, someone with limited computer access isn't left out.

Now that I've publicly made a fool of myself, can anyone tell me how I get the picture to come out right side up? emoticon

    Well, I can save it rightside up or upside down in my photo gallery, but it still won't post properly. So I just changed my profile picture to see if that piques any interest in why that picture is there. And another team mate has joined the challenge but is choosing to post descriptions in the thread for now.

    My technique is to put my hand over the part of the photo with the glass of juice. Then it looks like it's right side up!
    I enjoyed seeing your food and didn't pay attention to the photo orientation.

    What I do is find a fourteen year old and say, How do I do this? They sigh and do it so fast I can't tell how to do it myself next time.

    On my desktop computer, if I open the photo in picture viewer, there is a square at the bottom with a curved arrow on it. Clicking that rotates the photo. Then save. For other devices, I don't know.

    I applaud your focus. Great job doing challenges....eventually you will inspire others to join in!

    Not sure how to rotate the photo, but sounds like a good snack. I will have to post about my food.
