I picked up a copy of the book "Eat This, Not That Supermarket Survival Guide" at Costco this weekend and I want to recommend it to you for a reality check on what is in the food most of us buy. For example, V8 VFusion Light Peach Mango has 50 calories and 10g sugar per 8 oz while V8 Splash Mango Peach has 80 calories and 18g sugar. VFusion Light has real fruit and vegetable juice while V8 Splash is water and high fructose corn syrup with only 10% juice. It makes you want to read labels even closer.
I don't have any dramatic workout stories to share with you today. I aqua jogged hoping that will help keep shin splints and other injuries at bay. I miss running, real running so much. There is no way I can run again, in the way that is enjoyable to me, until I lose some more weight. The pounds are not just dropping off but I'll get there. And I will appreciate it that much more and I think that is a life lesson I am finally learning.
