I have been eating avocados because of their beneficial effects on blood pressure.
It's too bad they have no taste. All I taste is mush. Anybody out there with me? I know a lot of people love guacamole but I have to say they are tasting the seasonings not the avocado. My husband loves fried zucchini and I told him he was tasting the breading and the fat and not so much the zucchini.
So I have been dicing up an avocado on my salads and dealing with eating mush. I was making some egg salad just now and decided to dice up an avocado in it - WOW - it's good. I used four hard boiled eggs, a packet of fat free mayonnaise from the Army that Nathan brought home with him, some of my home made zucchini relish (which is wonderful), and the avocado. It's really good. Egg salad is supposed to be mushy; salads should be crunchy I think. I am tasting my relish because avocado has no taste :-)
I am still sore from those No. 1 Fat Burning Exercises I did the other day. I forgot the importance of stretching before and after exercising. I went to step aerobics today and noticed how much it lessened the soreness because of the stretching. I will do the exercises again tomorrow but will be careful to do those "Sun Salutes" before I start and do some stretching when done. I would like to be able to hold a plank position for 2 minutes like the book by Martina Navratilova recommends. I can do maybe 15 seconds. Those are one of the best exercises to do according to what I have read. I might do those first as a way to get my muscles ready for the Fat Burning Exercise.
I need to weigh myself again. Last time I weighed I had lost 2 lb. of the 5 lb. I gained from the "drift" that occurs when we take our eyes off the ball. I really think it was too much fruit and eating too much of the right things.
We spent $154 on the cat today. I don't remember spending that much on our kids. Noggin has a cold (I didn't know cats could get a cold). She needed to be vaccinated and wormed and get a rabies shot. They treated her to prevent fleas, and we got some more pain pills for Sarge. He is limping due to rapid growth and soft bones which is pretty common.
Be careful out there today.
