Nothing like an awesome toothache to keep you up all hours of the night. I am captain cranky today.
At least I wasn’t up all night pondering who the next judge of American Idol is anymore. One of life’s great mysteries. I am not sure who has better hair in the promo? What’s the BFD here? Can’t we just let Carrie Underwood be crowned the queen of that crap and call it a day, let it go FOX.
This week is zooming on by. I’ve been
sober clean off sugar for 3 full days. This is typically when someone offers you a cookie as a reward for good behavior, blerg. In all seriousness, I feel good, great even, but I have a ways to go. I had no idea at all the sugar buzz floating the interwebs lately. Tara Parker Pope over The New York Times is reading my mind! In Worries About Sweeteners, Think of All Sugars. Not to be outdone, the Corn Refiners Association, which represents firms that make the syrup, has also been trying to improve their image with ad campaigns promoting it as a natural ingredient made from corn. Sweet Surprise?! Hmm, I am not sure what to think. Where’s Bill Nye the Science Guy when you need him.
I also stumbled upon an amazing study that should motivate us all to get moving. No more crying about not having the workout gene in you. (I mean that in a sweet, drill sergeant kind of way.) Women’s Health Magazine is reporting:
See yourself fit. You’ll be more motivated to move if working out is part of your self-image, says a study in The International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity.
As crazy as it might sound, if I want to workout after work I immediately go home and put on my running shoes. Sometimes I have NO desire to move, but if I start walking around my house in my kicks I start feeling the need to at least walk or do something outside. Trickeration kids!
How do you see yourself as “fit”? From enjoying hiking to rollerblading, what does your inner workout Barbie or Ken say about you?
