I have a goal this month to eat more fruits and veggies. Actually, this has been my goal for the last couple months. And for some reason, I can’t seem to do it! I even got more specific this month and added “at least 1 per meal”. STILL CAN’T DO IT!

I have a degree in Nutrition, so I know full well that I should be eating my fruits and vegetables. Every now and then I will eat some, like last night. I had a handful of baby carrots. Not bad. But that was the only f/v serving I had in a couple days! logo_l

So, I decided to “ Join America’s Pledge ”:

My Pledge: I pledge to eat … and help my family eat … at least ONE MORE fruit or veggie every day.
[I was the 1019th person to take this pledge. Add your pledge to that number!]

In honor of making my pledge (and really working on my goal), I ate an orange with my breakfast...

...and steamed mixed veggies with dinner.

Not bad huh?! Seriously though, I’m going to get better at this fruit and veggie eating. How about you? How do you get all the fruit & vegetable servings you are suppose to?


I wasn’t planning on doing anything today...pretty much I can be super lazy on my non-running days. But, my friend KIM texted me and asked if I had gone on a walk yet today. Darn, she caught me!!

But, of course, I’m glad she did. We met up and went for about an hour long walk. It was a little chilly, but it’s ALWAYS worth it once you get up and get going. Thanks for the motivation Kim!
