Good morning Mintdom,

Even though I missed my water aerobics class last night, I still feel like I had a successful day yesterday.  It was one of those very full days with lots of action and people going on – I loved it!  I hope to get to the pool tonight.  In August, I am playing a version of Battleship on Spark People, and in order to get a guess, I need to burn 300 calories.  I am also doing this with my buddy from the summer camp challenge so I will need to work on this.  These Spark People sure know how to keep me busy! LOL In addition, I am learning a lot; in fact, I am learning so much I decided to start Trivia Tuesday.  See if you know the correct answer for the following questions. 

True or False: Your body needs an adequate amount of carbohydrates to be able to burn fat.

TRUE:For fat to be metabolized properly, carbohydrates must be present. The basic message is simple when it comes to selecting the amount and type of carbohydrate foods. Carbohydrates should make up 45% – 65% of the total daily calories in a healthy diet. At least 130 grams of carbohydrate should be included in the diet to prevent ketosis. Whenever possible, replace highly processed/refined grains, cereals, and sugars with minimally processed whole-grain products. For optimal energy and nutrition, learn


True or False: Carbohydrates are the only source of energy used by the brain. 

TRUE: Carbohydrates are necessary for the regulation of nerve tissue and are the ONLY source of energy for the brain


I actually got one right!  How did you do?  Were you surprised at any of the answers?

AffirMINTion: I focus on my path to a healthy balanced life.

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!
