I missed you folks so much last week! The Colorado trip was great. My old roommate and I hiked 5.5 miles last Friday, and on Monday, we finished the Bolder Boulder in 1 hour and 48 minutes...a whopping 10 minutes quicker than last year! And on top of that we also did pretty well staying OP--she's on WW too.
So her leader was telling us about "rat chow"...and how in a study when the rats were fed their "rat chow", they ate only as much as they needed, even when more was available. They were nice lean rats. But when they were fed junk food, they ate and ate and ate, until they were 10 times the size they were supposed to be. The lesson to be learned? Our version of "rat chow" is fruits and veggies, lean meats, and the othe good for us stuff.
