My Positive Vibes Challenge week 1

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

The July challenge for my Positive Vibes Team has us paired with another member for 1 week, then we switch teammates. Well the results are in and for week 1 my partner and I tied for 1st place.

One of the points I get is for a blog entry so here in week 2 I'm again trying hard to place at the top of the heap. I like that the challenge has some different aspects evey week. One of the challenges for me this week is to get my 2 fruits in. The veggies are not usually a problem. The good news is sometimes I'm looking for something to eat and I think I need 1 more fruit so what will it be.

I know I've said this before but I really like different challenges. They have changed my way of life.

    I generally don't have a whopping amount of fruit either. But the fruit I have is rock solid steady: an apple with my yogurt nearly every day for breakfast and later for a snack either an apple or banana...sometimes strawberries or pineapple.

    You are PERFECTING the art of variety...both in your workouts and food choices! Good for YOU! :-)

    I love fruits so it's the veggies that I have to work on. Try mixing up a bowl of strawberries and blueberries then right before eating add sliced bananas dipped in orange juice or diet sprite to keep from turning brown.

    I add this fruit mix to yogurt for a filling breakfast, or to sugar free vanilla pudding along with a dollop of lite cool whip for a yummy dessert.

    The mix is also great added to a spinach salad for a nice change for lunch.

    and, my favorite way to eat the fruit mix is made into a smoothie adding a cup of the fruit mix to a cup of light soy milk, a fat free strawberry/banana yogurt and a cup of crushed ice. Makes a nice big smoothie full of protein...a good on the way meal when the morning is rushed.

    Good luck with week 2 of your challenge! emoticon

    Aren't challenges the best? Speaking of produce-related challenges, a team I'm on issued a 6-10-freggie-a-day challenge. It wasn't quite as easy as I thought it would be, but it was an eye-opener. Even though I track everything I eat, I've looked more at the bottom line than variety.

    Your fruit challenge shouldn't be too hard. If you like berries, there are blackberries, blueberries, red raspberries, and strawberries out, and in some farmers' markets, they've had sour cherries! (mm-mmm, so good!) Like you, I'm more of a veggie lover, so fruit is normally more difficult to increase, but right now...so much easier! Good luck to you :) - Sandi emoticon
