In the past week
I’m going to be staying at a hotel with a saltwater swimming pool. Out of curiosity, are there benefits to swimming in there instead of in the normal kind with chlorine? Also, is it clean to be in salt water but no chlorine, or are those pools chlorinated, too?

I was going to have a different answer but when I read what Penny4thoughts said, I have to agree with that. Doing tons is probably better than doing little but you still need to get your heart rate up.
Yeah, you can’t control where weight comes off. Learned that the hard way (over and over and over). It’s a matter of keeping it up. I find it makes me feel better to work the areas I want to tone the most. It contributes to overall fat burning, not the specific part I’m toning, but in my mind I’m making a difference, plus it’ll look better whe…[Read more]
Anyone know anything about GABA supplements for better rest and calm so you can lose weight better by reducing stress and fatigue? I’ve heard people (including a neighbor) raving about them, but I’ve seen conflicting information online. Are they safe? Have you tried them? How much did you take? Did you get side effects? did you talk to a doctor first?
If you plan to really do yoga a lot, like most days of the week, you might really like it. That way, you can repeat workouts or pick fresh ones so you’re not always doing the same old thing. it also has more than videos so you can get more out of it than that. If you just do it a handful of times per month, you may not get a much out of it.
I’m trying to figure out if it’s healthier to drink caffeinated coffee or decaf. I was thinking stimulants are bad because they increase blood pressure and heart rate. But then I read that it’s proving great for weight loss. Is it healthier to lose weight even if it means you increase your blood pressure? Or is the increase really not too bad?
I make homemade granola bars. That way, I can choose my own ingredients and skip the chocolate if I want. It’s basically the same thing as Penny4Thoughts idea only pressed into a bar instead of loose.
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]
