Since my breakfast left me hungry I filled up on iced coffee and then had an early snack of apples and string cheese.
I had an early lunch because I had to work at noon. This is a new-to-me Trader Joe’s find – Mexicali Salad. Loved it! The sharp cheese and sun dried tomatoes really took it to another level.
Then, I headed to the gym to work some floor hours. At my gym we do a few floor hours a week where a personal trainer is scheduled to walk the floor answering questions about the equipment and possibly offering demos.
The gym was dead (hello noon on a Tuesday) so I chatted with a few ladies that didn’t have questions but thought it was nice to talk
After my shift I hit up Marshall’s to return some running shoes I got for Ben. I also hit up TJ’s for some seltzer. But my watermelon craving attacked. (I totally demolished the one I just bought from Costco in 2.5 days.) I told myself I wasn’t going to get another melon until next week. But, I’m weak.
Here is Ask a Monican #36! There are more than 36 of them, I just don’t number all of them in the name.
Ask a Monican #36
1. I need to lose 110 pounds. Can I run or should I just stick to walking for my knees?
2. I train at a 12:30 pace, how fast should I run for my first half marathon?
3. I’ve recently lost 35 pounds and people are saying I’m too thin. What should I say to them?

Blogger Busted News! A Blogger in North Carolina will possibly be jailed because of his website. The man used a Paleo diet to help cure his diabetic issues and now promotes that way of eating on his site. But, the state nutrition board says he is practicing nutrition (which is illegal without a license). You can read the article in the Carolina Journal here.
It’s scary because a lot of bloggers walk this line of sharing their own diet and making it seem like this is the right way or suggesting others follow suit. It is a shame one cannot share how they eat, move, pray, medicate without worrying that someone will accuse them of trying to teach others. There is a line between sharing “this works for me” and “do it this way because I am an expert”, right?
Be careful if you have a blog. Have a disclaimer. Just because eating xyz works for you doesn’t mean it will work for others, nor does it give you a certification to teach.
Be careful if you read blogs. Be a smart adult and don’t just listen to what a stranger on the internet suggests. Make your own, educated decisions on what you eat and how you exercise.
