‘Twas not too terrible of a Tuesday… actually, it was a rather enjoyable last day of summer. Say what!? Yep, did you all realize tomorrow the calendar turns to fall!? Indeed it does. My summer has long been gone, but I have been squeezing the most out the late summer sunshine and its beloved fruit harvest. It makes me sad to think that some of my favorite summer treasures – like peaches and heirloom tomatoes – will be disappearing from the farmers’ markets momentarily, but I have many things to look forward to for the fall months. It is my most favorite season, after all!
Good bye, pretty peaches.
I enjoyed ‘grading’ your quiz answers; though, since no one earned 100%, I’ll share the correct answers…
1. WHAT ARE THE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PERCENT OF TOTAL CALORIES FROM CARBOHYDRATE, PROTEIN, FAT?
2. HOW MANY CALORIES OF ENERGY/GRAM DO EACH OF THE FOLLOWING PROVIDE: CARBOHYDRATE, PROTEIN, FAT?
For example, if you have a granola bar that contains 6 grams of fat total, 54 calories [6g x 9cal] in the bar are due to the amount of fat. Make sense?
3. WHAT IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN THE U.S. TODAY?

My morning class was cancelled this morning – grrr. Being on campus already, I decided to get my workout out of the way early. However, I was counting on using the time sitting in class to digest my hearty bowl of oats – I really dislike exercising on even a semi-full tummy – but thankfully, it turned out to be a decent Running Tuesday.
- 1 mi. indoor track run
- 30-minute treadmill run
28 minutes @ 7.0mph [10 minutes @ 0.0, 10 minutes @ 1.0, 8 minutes @ 2.0 incline]
2 minutes @ 8.0mph
- 1.5 mi. indoor track run
- planks + stretchinggg!
Total: 6.05 mi. @ 54 min.
Gotta go prepare for another Wednesday… working the Nutrition Club booth at the student farmers’ market tomorrow, amongst the usual classes, and then my favorite activity of the week: WRECPump!
Did you run today?
What fall things are you looking forward to?
