We reviewed the importance of power foods and good health guidelines. I have been on many different diets before but this time on WW I learn more about the importance of balance. Part of this balance are the Good Health Guidelines. This consists of all the things that will help you on your way to a better body all around. It's cool to be thin but in the long run it is far better to be healthy. Let's start with food.
1)you should eat five servings of fruits and veggies every day. For example, today I ate two oranges with my breakfast, for lunch I had asparagus and a golden apple with my pasta. For dinner I ate a baked sweet potato and cabbage. Later I will have a banana. It's easy to add up to at least five servings if you add some to every meal.
2) whenever possible go for the whole grains. When I started my journey I had an me vs them theory with my family. It was exhausting both my time and money. I switched my family to whole grain bread, whole grain pasta and brown rice. Yes it tastes a little different at first but that's because you're addicted to the white stuff. There is nothing wrong with white stuff but today's products have changed and they are tasty. Give them a try .
3)Take a multivitamin. Your body needs the extra help to process you intake and to keep you in balance for all the fun activities you do.
4) drink plenty of water but beware the times that you drink it. It can keep you running back and forth to the bathroom.
5) try to be active. A little at a time at first.Rome was not built in a day.

When we arrived at the field, Jake started practicing with the team and I decided to explore the bike path near the field. I don't know exactly how long it was. I am guessing about a mile. I rode around it ten times. It was wonderful. My legs were peddling away. It felt so great. Please take a look.

After my laps around the bike path I took time out to take pictures of Jake and his team mates practicing. I also took time out to drink a bottle of water and have my snack; an orange. How's that for power foods. After a late practice, Jake and I took our ride back home before it gets too dark. I need to invest in so bike reflectors now that I am out in the traffic. All in all it was a good day.
