What are Antioxidants?

In beginning this regimen, I’ve done quite a bit of research into supplements, vitamins, etc. And a word that I’ve come across several times is the word “antioxidants.” Things that contain antioxidants are apparently good for you. But, why? You may already know this. But since I didn’t and had to learn about it, I thought I’d share with you my newfound knowledge. :-)

Breaking the word down, we get “anti”, which means against, and oxidants. An oxidant is very specifically defined as a chemical agent that oxidizes. Yeah? So?


Menu Monday 31 JAN 2011

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of January 31st. As far as desserts go, we’re going to mail Gregg’s Valentine’s Day box, so I need to make some pink sugar cookies. I’m also going to send him some homemade granola bars, and I think I’m going to make the kids some Decadent Cookies & Cream Cupcakes.

I am personally focusing on a four-month personal fitness challenge, which will include what I eat and when I eat it, and will involve me working out and running daily. I’m not going to do a lot about it here. My husband, Gregg, is starting up a blog about his personal journey with fitness and will leave all of that kind of blogging to him. There will be times that the kids eat something different from me (for instance, I don’t expect them to want tuna in their scrambled eggs). In those instances, I’ll have two meals listed – one for me and one for them.
