Walking Food and Tata's update

So, I only went 2 miles last week. See, my thesis is beyond due and I was trying my hardest to finish it. Talk about stress!! Not much sleep all week, then crashed yesterday afternoon and today. I'd go walking today with the doggie, but she refuses to do anything when her back gets wet and it's raining. Silly thing...it's funny at times, but so frustrating too. Keep in mind that most of the time it uncludes going potty too. What would she do if we lived in Seattle?

Did any of you walk? If we band together (maybe I should have called it a walking challenge and given a deadline?) we could knock this out in no time.

So, I got rid of all the high fructose corn syrup and most enriched stuff. I also got rid of hydrogenized oils (since they're bad too). All that is good as long as I eat home! But, I'm determined to do this and do better in this department. I also got a lot of organic foods too. Do you know how hard it is to buy "bad" foods when you cut these three little ingredients out? I even had to buy organic ketchup. Weird. But, now I don't know what I'll eat them...maybe some brats?

OH, and I didn't buy Ezekiel (sp?) bread. But, I did finally find (after searching) a wheat bread that doesn't have HFCS that I don't remember tasting bad. I'll let you know how it goes :)


I'm so excited!! I bought my first save the tatas t-shirt and bag. I've wanted one for a while, since the issue is so near and dear to my heart (see post below). I'll let you know when I get it!!

How wonderful, glad you got rid of the bad stuff! I am slowly seeing progress again after clearing them out of my diet. I do have to confess that I can't give up the Heinz ketchup. Maybe in time! Get in there & get that thesis done! Have a great week!

I walk a bit--so I'll walk "with" you. I like to jog but it's not good for my knees so I'm taking up walking a bit. Does it count if I walk in the village and shop while I'm at it? :)

Oh, and where'd you get the "feel your boobies" button? Can I steal that?

Diana said...

Of course you can steal it! I should have noticed where I got it, but I didn't. Is that bad if you use it for only information? Should I have asked?

Diana said...

I'm used to education where we doin't have to get permission (I block out faces if they're there). Ugh...I'm so bad. And clueless.

Lainie said...

I'm sure it's fine since it's to promote a good cause, right? I just thought I'd ask you before grabbing it. :) I didn't know if you had a link it came from or something that I could link it to.
