First Race of the Spring coming up.....

My first race of the spring is coming up this weekend and I am so excited! I am so ready to run this race. I am going to get to see my husbands family while I am there too. My father-in-law is walking it and my sister-in-law and I are running it! This is only the start of my first 5K for this spring! I am hoping that this Saturday it is not freezing like it was this time. This weather is very weird. It is hot one day and sunny and then the next, it is snowing or the windo is blowing a whole lot! Weird Texas weather!

Above is the race that I am running this weekend. It is going to support Lung Cancer Awareness! I usually try to run races that are going to support something or help some kind of cause.

I also just found out that my cholestrol was on the high side and so I have been using flaxseed inside of some of my meals. This is supposed to help bring this down and it is also very good for you.

I do not take the oil as pictured above, but instead I use the ground up Flaxseed. It is not that gritty in your food and you can not really taste it. I have used it in oatmeal and Bananna nut bread so far, and it has been great!

I hope everybody has a great week! :0)

kayla-make sure you keep the flaxseed in the freezer, it will last longer that way.
I put it in smoothies!

Thanks Heather! I completely forgot about doing that! I have not tried it in a smoothie yet. I am going to try that as soon as I can get some fruit and yogurt!
