In addition to this, I began eating salads–or at least trying salads. I also tried some vegetarian burgers & chicken patties. I discovered the awesomeness of steamed veggies, like broccoli, peas, & carrots.
Exercising & Health
I tried vegetarianism and veganism for a short while. All in all, there were three weeks when I didn’t have meat. I didn’t find it that hard, but it was not all that pleasurable. I find that I would rather eat veggies with meat than just veggies. So for the last week of May, I started eating the minimum recommended servings of the food groups according to the USDA–2-3 dairy, 2-4 fruit, 3-5 veggies, 6-12 oz grain, 45-80g protein.
Where exercise is concerned, I pretty much didn’t run at all in May 😕 I think I went 3-4 times–that was probably due to my iffy knee. But I did run a 5K for a local nonprofit organization that a good friend of mine helped set up. But I have been doing p90x for a few weeks. I’m just starting the 3rd week of the program, though I only do it every other day. But I have seen some results, strength-wise. I don’t think you’d really see it to just look at me.
