I think you should strive to eat
healthy. Most people know the good things to eat and will eat right if properly
motivated. I also know many people run a very hectic schedule. Some people are
raising a young family, working 10 hour days and trying to attend classes at
night. You get to class and the only food available is a candy bar out of the
snack machine. Not a healthy choice.
But for many it is the only choice, otherwise they will be in pain during
class. And I do mean real pain. But the goal of any program is to come up with
solutions to this eating dilemma. You are a college student, how do you solve
the good eating problem?
Obviously, you can't be preparing green beans in the classroom. But are there
other foods, that will provide a healthier choice than candy bars? Can you
substitute an apple for the candy bar? It will probably fill you up just as
well, even with the same amount of calories. But it is a healthier decision.
Today, I exercised by going for a walk at the forest preserve. I walked for 4
miles. It was clear and beautiful. The temperature was 20 degrees fahrenheit
and the wind chill took it to 15 degrees. But the wind was light so it wasn't
really a problem. It was the quietest walk I had. There wasn't any man made
noise in the air. Sometimes, I hear cars from the highway. Today, all I heard
were little sparrow like birds chirping and a woodpecker getting an early start
When I got home I went to the basement and lifted weights for half an hour. I
worked on my chest muscles and triceps. Bench press, inclined bench press,
flyes, dips and french curls.
Breakfast was 2 servings of grits, one scrambled egg, butter, orange juice, and
milk. Lunch was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with green beans and water.
Dinner was breaded fish, green beans, broccoli, bread and butter.
Not a bad day for eating healthy and exercising. Good luck eating the good
foods and do a little exercising. Have a great day!
