  4. Back on Track 7/23

    -plan your meals for the day (either day 12 or 13)

    Did not do this today, so here’s the plan for tomorrow

    Breakfast- Green Giant veggies and pb sandwich

    Lunch- Greek Wrap (hummus and olives and tempeh) purchased at work (I need to go grocery shopping, I have almost no food here). 

    Dinner- Fried rice with tofu and veggies

    snack- apple, banana, V8


    -drink only water!!

    Nope, again gotta have me coffee!


    -listen to your body, take care of it

    My body said to be lazy which I did, but also did some light stretching and yoga. Plan to run tomorrow, um, well later today, and maybe row. 

     
  5. Back on Track 7/21 & 7/22 -catching up (days 9 & 10)

    Sorry I’ve not been around. Feeling so tired lately. Anyway, gotta catch up on the challenge!!

    Monday 7/21

    -post how this challenge has helped you, and what else you would like to get out of it

    This challenge is making my more self aware of my own destructive tendencies as well as the struggles that everyone is facing. I hope to continue to see the stories of others and learn more about them and myself in the process.

     
    -be active for at least 45 min

    nope-rest day


    -limit the amount of sugar you consume

    Ah, only had sugar in my coffee. 

    Tuesday 7/22

    -use stairs as much as possible, take the long ways. Etc

    Done. My place of work has many long meandering hallways and I had to go to the second floor today, so up the stairs I went and took the long way back. Or should I say longer way back. 

    -limit caffeine consumption

    Haha, gotta have my coffee!

    -allow yourself a treat

    Does napping count?

    Cycling isn’t a game, it’s a sport. Tough, hard and unpitying, and it requires great sacrifices. One plays football, or tennis, or hockey. One doesn’t play at cycling.

    Every run is a work of art, a drawing on each day’s canvas. Some runs are shouts and some runs are whispers. Some runs are eulogies and others celebrations. When you’re angry, a run can be a sharp slap in the face. When happy, a run is your song. And when your running progresses enough to become the chrysalis through which your life is viewed, motivation is almost beside the point. Rather, it’s running that motivates you for everything else the day holds.

    • Zombies! Run and mimosas. Nuff said.

HERE’S THE PROBLEM
Group A here says fruit is fine to eat. Fruit won’t make you fat because it’s not the same as eating a brownie.
Group B says, yes, fruit can make you fat because the sugar in fruit is the same as the sugar in the brownie.
When what both groups should be saying is, “The kind of sugar is the same, yes, but overall nutritionally speaking, fruit is better to eat than brownies [on a regular basis that is].”
Side note: Again, if you’re fat, fruit is probably the least of your problems. Again, there’s no one reason why someone is fat. Fruit is far from reason #1, 9.999/10 of the time.

to my way of thinking, saying
"the sugar in fruit is no different to the sugar in candy, therefore fruit isn’t good for you"
is no different to saying
"the sugar in candy is no different to the sugar in fruit, therefore candy isn’t bad for you".
it’s the same lack of logic producing a different conclusion, isn’t it?
how’s your TOTAL DIETARY INTAKE? if it supplies an appropriate amount of energy and nutrients over all, quibbling over specific individual choices is irrelevant and including some candy is fine. If it does not supply an appropriate amount of energy and nutrients, fruit would be about the least logical thing to cut back on.

THAT’S EXACTLY MY POINT.
Like if you’re fat, you’re probably having too much candy and not the enough fruit. The content of every nutrient and shit in candy is significantly higher than that in fruit.
My point, and the point everyone in this argument needs to look at, is that it’s not the type of sugar that is making you fat, your overall diet.
Like the type of sugar (which is the same in both candy and fruit) shouldn’t even be a factor.
Fruit alone will not make you fat so warning people not to eat it is fucking the stupidest shit ever.
Not moving your fat ass and eating a too large a surplus of calories will make you fat.

I’m not joining this debate, you are more than welcome to discuss the relative differences or not about which is good or bad or better, but I want to clear something up.
Fructose (fruit sugar) DOES NOT EQUAL Sucrose (which is what you get from sweeteners, candy, etc).
Fructose chemical formula => C6H12O6 an isomer* of Glucose, which our bodies produce naturally. 
Sucrose chemical formula => C12H22O11 aka table sugar 
Sucrose is fructose PLUS glucose, but it is NOT fructose.
Oh and High Fructose Corn Syrup is a mixture of Glucose and Fructose thus a mixture of different isomers.
*Isomers are molecules with the same chemical structure, but different configurations.
