I will say that they did ride up a little but not enough to make me think that my bum cheeks were showing. Thank goodness! I also really wanted to test them, so I never pulled them down once and as you can see from my pictures they hardly moved up. So yep, these are the winners. My sisters and I are all running in the same outfit! We will show you the rest of it later. Can't wait! Only 9 more days till RACE DAY!!
A little over a month ago I wanted to pump up my veggie intake so I made up my own food rule/guideline/diet. It is called the salad once a day diet. I try my very hardest to eat a salad once a day. Simple as that. I would say that it is going pretty well and I have about a 95% success rate. The trick is that you have to mix up the ingredients. I usually buy the Taylor's organic salad mixes. At first I was really into the herb salad mix but now I have moved onto the the baby spring mix. I will seriously throw whatever I have in my fridge into my salad. Some days are better than others but I will say eating my greens everyday helps me feel so much better!! (and I change up the dressing, but always remember to take it easy on the dressing or it just defeats the purpose)
If I am really not feeling a salad I will make a salad mix(this case, with tuna) and just put it on some bread to make an open faced sandwich.
I am in charge of doing activities for the kids in our church and so last night we headed to the park for some games and I brought fruit salad to munch on. The kids loved it! No I don't really count this as my greens for the day but I definitely love eating fruit in the summer. Plus I think it tastes like you are eating dessert when you are eating fruit salad.
The weather was perfect and the kids had a blast. We played Red Rover. Do you remember that game?

Do you guys give yourself rules or guidelines that you have to follow for your diet?
- Me, I actually hate dieting but I am really liking this salad rule. Something else that I am weird about is muffins! I won't eat them. I mean MAYBE sometimes if I made them and I know what is in the muffin but otherwise I have this thing against them. The funny part is that I will eat bagels and ice cream no prob.
Do you have a favorite salad?
-I was super impressed with Gourmet Runner because she found a way to put PB in her salad! Awesome!
