Happy Saturday everyone! I hope everyone had a great night last night! We did a whole lot of NOTHING and that was exactly what I wanted! I needed a night to chill? Why because yesterday was awesome! Starting with my fantastic run and then my catering gig…I needed a night off! 🙂
This morning I was up and happy. I am very sore from PT yesterday and I didn’t want to push my luck today so I opted for a shorter run (5 miles @ 8:30/pace) followed by 30 minutes on the elliptical. I feel pretty sweaty and oh so happy! Now I have a date with multiple ice bags! Ah…the life of a runner! 🙂
Then for the most exciting part of my day today….USA! USA! USA! We are playing Ghana today in the World Cup and I so excited to watch! I am so proud of our boys and I hope they kick butt today!
Are you going to watch the World Cup game?
Saturday thought: It is no secret that new health-care legislation includes a law requiring restaurant chains more than 200,000 of them nationwide to print calorie counts next to every item on their menu boards. .Do you think it will work? Only time will tell, but similar legislation already exists in New York, and studies have shown that it does lead diners to choose slightly less-fattening menu options.
Do you think that posting calorie information next to menu items will “guilt” people into making healthier choices?
Personally, I do. I think that it is easy to have that “out of sight, out of mind” mentality when eating out. But if you are forced to see it right in front of you…I think it will be a lot harder for some people to justify slurping down a 750 calorie milk shake.
