I love me some vegetables; throw them in a salad, stir fry them, slightly boil them, eat them in their natural state. Whatever the case my life is meaningless without them. Okay, I lie, both fruits and vegetables are a huge part of my diet and without them my food tastes really bland. I’m still to try out the egg plant though, the way it looks interesting I have a good feeling it will taste as good as it looks 🙂
I had a most interesting conversation with a friend of mine who loves all things health and fitness but mainly concentrates on the eating healthy part instead of exercising because he says “He’s a fucking fatty”, his words not mine! We discovered that we have the same blood type which is A Positive. He told me to read more on our blood type and lo and behold, this is what dear Google had to say;
Type A blood: A meat-free diet based on fruits and vegetables, beans and legumes, and whole grains — ideally, organic and fresh, because D’Adamo says people with type A blood have a sensitive immune system.
This confirmed my love for fruits, especially avocado; vegetables and my never ending gastritis issues. I don’t know about the meat free part because I love all white meat but beef remains my greatest enemy, I don’t like the smell and texture. Minus the health benefits which include reducing the risk of high blood pressure, some cancers and the feel good effect I get after I eat fruits and vegetables, I love colour and my plates always look happy when I add vegetables to it.
Do you know what your blood type is and what are your thoughts on the subject of eating according to your blood type?
Now that my secret love affair for fruits and vegetables is out let’s get to working on Week 3 of the January Challenge.
|Sunday||Run 10 K|
|Tuesday||12 000 steps + 200 Russian Twists + 200 Plank Knee To Elbow|
|Wednesday||6 000 skips|
|Friday||200 Chest Press + 200 Tricep Extensions|
Some of the workouts require dumbbells, if you don’t have any you can use water bottles or fill up empty water containers with sand. No excuses.
It’s going to be an explosive week ahead!
