Fitness on Friday #20

I'm not sure anyone is really reading this anymore. I may just quit Fitness on Friday...I'm not sure.

Anyway, for anyone who is here this week...I was reading Self magazine today while I was trudging away on the elliptical. It mentioned 20 super foods for weight loss. I thought I'd share those with you, for full details check out the August 2008 Self magazine.

1. Steak
2. Eggs
3. Kale
4. Oats
5. Lentils
6. Goji berries
7. Wild salmon
8. Apples
9. Buckwheat pasta
10. Blueberries
11. Almond butter
12. Pomegranates
13. Chiles
14. Yogurt (plain)
15. Quinoa
16. Sardines
17. Tarragon
18. Parmesan
19. Avocado
20. Olive oil

Now some of those I can totally handle...others (sardines anyone?) I'm not so sure. What ones can you handle...or not?

Oh and my weigh in is in the morning, we'll see how I did this week. I exercised everyday, and I'm sore right now from what I did yesterday. So I'm hoping the scale has budged a the downward direction.

Well, I'm reading.... I know I haven't been very regular in the past but I'm working on that. Of course if it's too much work to maintain an extra blog I completely understand if you stop doing Fitness on Friday.

I can definitely eat some of those foods (steak!) but not others (sardines). Fun list!

I'm still reading!

But all I ever do with fitness is walk and do some workout vids, and I already posted on them. So I just have nothing to contribute! (Not to mention my puter was wacked out for a while, and wouldn't come on!)

About those superfoods... why not flavored yogurt I wonder? Sheesh, who likes to eat the plain kind? Ick! And some of those are pretty high in fat and calories! Go figure ;)

I still read and contribute!!

I skimmed over that list in the magazine too. There's more on that list that I wouldn't eat than what I would. Maybe that's my problem!

Hope your weigh in goes in the downward direction!

I recently tried a salad? that called for sardines and it was good.
split a red pepper add a couple of slices of garlic, some smushed sardines and a dribble of olive oil and butter (a tiny bit) bake at 400 for 15-20 min. I baked it with and with out the sardines and prefer it with the sardines...go figure.
