In the past week
I’ve been looking at running shoes with five individual toes. Not going to name the brand so I’m not labeled as spam. They’re supposed to make it feel like you’re running in bare feet. Is that something I want? Is running barefoot better for you than running with cushioning and stability?
Low carb is still going. It’s just not what it used to be. It’s lowER carb, not just trying to eat as few carbs as possible. It’s been understood that carbs are foods with a lot of nutrition, and we need some of them. So while the average American diet has far too many carbs when compared to protein and healthy fat calories, cutting down on t…[Read more]
Just wanted to put this out there. I’ve been shopping for good athletic shoes. I need ones with stability at the moment. I spent a good part of the weekend shopping around, and I’ve learned that there is a huge difference between what sales reps will say and what the truth actually is. For instance, I went into one store and said that I had o…[Read more]
That may not sound like a big difference but I bet you’re noticing it. It makes your body work harder so you are actually getting more out of each step. I wouldn’t say that it’s the same as strength training but it’s definitely better than regular walking. Nice job 🙂
Try mixing up your strength training so it’s not the same boring workout you’re dreading. If you don’t want to do the thing you would normally do, think about trying a new video or something like that. The novelty might keep things fresh enough that you won’t avoid it on your low motivation days.
I say that she’ll likely not keep it up over the long term, but for what she actually is eating, she’ll probably do fine. Her main struggle will be when she gives up on it, because she’ll need to realistically keep lost weight off. I think it’s a fad, overkill diet.
I think if you’re going to run on a surface like that, it’s just a matter of choosing the right shoes and knowing what you’re doing. Make sure you’re running with the right kind of stride (you may not be doing that. You’d be surprised). Keep your feet in shoes with very good cushioning, good stability and that stay fresh. If your shoes start ge…[Read more]
Thanks. I had a feeling that was the case. I’m not really in the red zone yet, but it sucks that things are only going to get harder from here forward. I’m going to try to set the right habits now so I’ve got them while it’s easier. I’m afraid of getting stuck in an unhealthy body and not being able to get my way back out.
Unless you’re taking an advanced class, you can usually wear whatever you want to Tai Chi. It should be something that lets you move freely and that lets your chi, your natural life energy, move freely with your movements. Other than that, it’s not about fashion. If it seems like your outfit is getting in your way in your class, you will pr…[Read more]
I know they say that age makes it harder to lose weight but at what age does that really start to matter? Is it in your 20s? 30s? or do you have to be older for it to really make a difference?
Of course you can. Just make sure that you’re tracking your exercise accurately. Most gym equipment and many devices overestimate the calories you’re burning during exercise. No idea why that is. Either way, if you do want to use workout calorie burning to buy yourself more snacks during the day, just make sure you’re erring on the side of fe…[Read more]
If you’re not sure, ask a health professional. I don’t think the keto diet was developed for people with diabetes. I think it was created for kids with epilepsy. If you do it right it can keep your blood sugar really steady but just make sure it’s safe for you specifically to play with your blood sugar.
Exactly. That’s what I meant. It’s more of a way of living than a set program but lots of websites, books and even YouTube channels have focused on it and have created guides and recipes for people who are adopting it for the first time.
That’s just it, kittykatt. They’re very different, but that’s what the benefits of a strider are and why many people pick them instead of a stationary bike. Still, that doesn’t mean one is better than the other.
