    Wild About Watermelons!

    According to Brownielocks today is National Watermelon Day!

    Watermelons ... a sweet, drippy, juicy way to learn! ;) So let's start out with some watermelon facts:

    Watermelon Facts:
    * Watermelons are more than 90% water. That's how it got its name!
    * For that reason, in ancient times travelers used them as a source of transportable water.
    * They probably originated in Africa, but are now grown around the world.
    * They are part of the gourd family.
    * They grow on a vine and must be replanted yearly.
    * Most people consider them to be a fruit, but horticulturists consider them a vegetable.
    * They vary in size and shape. The Japanese recently even developed a SQUARE watermelon!
    * The outside of the watermelon is the rind.
    * Inside the watermelon you'll find the flesh (the stuff you eat), and seeds.
    * Watermelons can be different colors inside and out, as well as the amount of seeds that they contain.
    * Most watermelons weigh from 5 - 40 pounds, but some get as large as 100 pounds.
    * The 1996 Guiness Book of Records lists the largest watermelon as being 262 pounds!
    * The seeds (like the pumpkin's seeds) can also be roasted and eaten.
    * Some people use the watermelon rind for making preserves, pickles, or relish.
    * That makes the whole watermelon edible!

    Yes! I did run in the Boilermaker. It was my first year doing it and it was so much fun. Probably one of the best races I've done. I highly recommend it. Keep running and you'll be ready for it next year...if not there's always the 5K

    I use Weight Watchers as a structure for my diet but I definitely love this site! I'm not overly impressed with WW and I've been using it for so long now that I pretty much know the points value of most foods and I think I'm going to cancel my membership. I don't find much for support. I'll save some money that way, too ;)
    Yes, I run 6- 7 miles a day usually. I have a couple routes around town that I've been running and I try to alternate them so I don't get bored. I use mapmyrun.com to find new ones just to keep mixing it up.
    Congrats on your running accomplishment! That's amazing! I'm sure you'll be able to run more soon! It is amazing what your body can do once you really push it to the limit!

    You mean a meal can be complete without rice or pasta?!? J/K I have not become that strict with my diet. I honestly can't cut them out. You might as well use me as bear bate. Some girls like chocolate...I want my carbs and nothing will come between us. ツ

    Any exciting plans for the weekend?

    Talk to you later,
