Mexican Night Take 2 & Giveaway!
At the risk of being redundant, dinner was leftover fajitas. Hey, that’s what happens when you make something tasty. You eat more of it 🙂 It was exactly the same as last night except I added some frozen corn kernels to the veggie mix before I heated them up. Nothing beats whole wheat tortillas, refried beans, and veggies.
I also had some thick, creamy, V8 Sweet Red Pepper soup on the side.
Soup and beans- both so filling! I should have eaten a little slower, I’m stuffed! I got hungry again after the fajitas last night, so hopefully the soup will help hold me over a little longer tonight.
Feb 12, 2010 was the first Blog Your Heart Out Day- a day to blog our hearts out to increase awareness of heart disease. (You may or may not remember me attending a local GoRed event and blogging my heart out about it.)
Why is it important to talk about heart disease?
– Heart disease is the #1 cause of death among women- it kills one woman every minute
– 90% of women have one or more risk factors for heart disease
– 80% of cardiac events can be prevented by choices like diet, exercise, and not smoking
GoRed & the American Heart Association are about encouraging women to live healthier lifestyles. Did you know that women who keep track of their eating and physical activity habits are more successful at improving them? You’re 75% more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down. Fitbook is a diet and fitness journal that helps you track your progress as you work to reach your goals.
As a result of participating in Blog Your Heart Out, fitlosophy has offered to reward one lucky SoS reader with a Fitbook!! Fitbook is a great way to track the things that can help you live a healthy, heart disease-free life!
