Coach’s Oats!

I don’t think I could even try to tell you how excited I was to see this box waiting for me when I arrived home the other day week (sorry, this post has been sitting in my drafts bin for a while)….

I love getting mail.  LOVE it.  And even when it’s junk mail… if it’s addressed to me, I’m stoked.  (Although to my electric, gas, and cable providers, if you’d like to refrain from sending me bills,  I’d be even happier 😉 )

When I saw it was from Coach’s Oats, I was even more excited to open it up.

Ok, I know… it looks a little sketchy on camera.  But MMM did it taste good!

Here’s how I made it…

Action Enhances Reaction: Newton’s Third Law

This blog presents to you installment 3 of the 3 part series dissecting Newton’s Laws of Motion—Health Style.   Part 1 talked about Newton’s first law and part 2 talked about  Newton’s Second.  Any guesses to what part 3 is about?

You guessed it, Newton’s third law.

Newton’s 3rd says that,

“For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”

As I begin to translate this into health words for you, I have a feeling you already know what I’m going to say.

For every positive step you take, there is an equal and opposite reaction that occurs.

For Nutrition, here are how some positive actions can cancel out any negative actions.

  • try some yogurt for dessert (your positive step), and there is a big bowl of ice-cream that you didn’t eat!
  • choose to have breakfast, and your metabolism isn’t still resting!
  • decide to eat the fresh foods you absolutely love, and displace stomach room for the potato chips you don’t care for as much!

What about Exercise? Check out these positive changes:
