No Joke

Happy First Day of Spring! I really hope the weather stays as springy as it’s been the last few weeks – it was perfect out yesterday!

I just finished Workout A of Week Three of the Best Body Bootcamp, and it was no joke. I kind of slacked off last week and didn’t exactly follow the training schedule, but I did get in a lot of time outdoors walking and running after Munchkin.

This morning’s workout was lower body supersets with cardio circuits in between. So basically I did three back to back sets of two lower body workouts followed by 5 minutes of cardio, followed by more supersets. The exercises that Tina designed are really great. The girl makes you work every muscle, even muscles you didn’t know you had. I’m kind of excited for the upper body supersets because upper body workouts are my fav!

Enough about working out, I wanted to share something that I stumbled upon on a random Tumblr and looked into further. I never paid much attention to the little produce code stickers on my fruits and veggies when shopping, but apparently what the number looks like can tell you a lot about your produce. I always thought that the numbers were there for the supermarket to be able to enter them into the cash registers, but the numbers actually tell you how the produce was grown. Produce with:

  • a 4-5 number code starting in 9 is organic.
  • a 4-5 number code starting in 8 is genetically modified.
  •  a 4 number code starting in 4 is conventionally grown
  • a 4 number code starting in 3 is irradiated.

I am going to be making sure that none of my produce is genetically modified from now on. The whole subject of genetic modification of food makes me a little uneasy and I try to avoid it when possible. Unfortunately, our government doesn’t think we need to know how the food we put into our bodies was grown.

My delicious breakfast is almost ready, so I’m going to run. Keep an eye out for something really yummy tomorrow!

Have a great Tuesday!

What’s the last good workout you had? Do you pay attention to how and where your produce it grown?

  14. O prima intrebare este de unde se poate comanda Acaai verde.
    Acai verde se poate commanda online de pe internet, O alta intrebare despre acest produs este daca se poate administra
    pentru a inlocui alimentele. Raspunsul este biineinteles negativ, deoarece Acai verde esre
    un produs natural compus numai din plante,
    care actioneaza asupra grasimilor corporale si reda energie,
    dar nu poate inlocui nici o dieta echilibrata si diversificata.
    Pe piata romaneasca au aparut numeroase suplimente pe baza de Acai Berry.
    Douua dintre cele mai populare suplimente care contin fructe
    acfai sunt Acai Fortee si Acai Berry Diet.
