In the past week
I’ve tried adding weights to my wrists and ankles. I know it’s not a huge difference but it’s enough for me to start and then slip in any strength training I can during the rest of the week. Even if I don’t do more than one strength training workout then at least I’ve used my muscles more.
Oh my gosh yes! Check amazon or a lot of sportswear/ gear stores. There are goggles that you can get at your approximate prescription. You need to do a bit of calculating from your eyeglass prescription to what the one would be for goggles because it’s not the same, but it’s not hard to do.
I walk every day and enjoy it. I do some other cardio throughout the day. But for strength training – which I really want to do – my motivation comes and goes. I think my fitbit has something to do with it. It’s like it’s wasted time on my fitness record because it doesn’t register steps. I know it sounds stupid but since I can’t track it in t…[Read more]
Thanks Envirotodd and Kittykatt. I guess I’d better start this year with better footwear instead of using last year’s until it’s done. I don’t wnat to be one of those runners who ends up with ruined joints.
To me, it looks like the Plant Paradox does have you eating whole foods and pretty healthy foods, but it restricts things unnecessarily. Yes, it makes you eat healthy foods, but it cuts out healthy foods, too, when you dont even have to. Cutting whole grains, most beans, lentils, tomatoes, etc? Why? Countries that eat those foods have some of…[Read more]
I’m running but my main surface is sidewalk. What should I know so I don’t hurt myself? I like running around my neighborhood, but I’m not comfortable with being on the asphalt of the road and it’s boring to be on a track. Am I doomed to get hurt by being on the sidewalk?
I think it’s definitely harder to lose weight in your thirties than in your 20s. But in your 40s hormones really start changing a lot more, especially for women, and that slows things down in a way you can really tell. After that it keeps slowing especially for people going through menopause and who have gone through it. Men will see a more gr…[Read more]
Looking for weight loss tips meant for people with PCOS. Not the stuff you see everywhere. Anyone know some stuff from experience or that really do work? I’m not looking for fad diets, though. I want to stay healthy.
Thanks. I had a feeling it would be that hard and not just straightforward that shows exactly how much I burn and exactly how much I can eat. Thanks for the info and advice. This does make it easier for me to try to figure it out.
I don’t understand how much extra I can eat from having exercised in a day. I still want to lose weight but if I’m already cutting 500 per day, can I use my workout calorie burning to be able to eat more calories per day and still be down by 500 calories?
So say I walk fast for a half hour. How many more calories can I actually eat? I don’t…[Read more]
It might be safe for you. Diabetes isn’t the only consideration. Do you have other health conditions? If you don’t know or if you definitely have other health conditions, it’s always smart to talk to a doctor before you get going with a diet as drastically different from your usual one as those ones are. Keto, for example, changes the way yo…[Read more]
I think unless you’re planning for using it for just one day, so it’s just a rare thing, I’d go for a light stainless steel instead of plastic. Why take the risk? Get it from a good brand you can trust. They’re very light when you get a good one.
They’re not all the same. Look carefully at the reviews you see. Some aren’t good for tall people or for people closer to 5 feet tall. Also, some are notorious for squeaking. Some are easy to fix with WD40 or something like that. Others need to be disassembled and sticky lubricant grease needs to be applied. Those ones are most likely to be ab…[Read more]
I go through this too. I pretty much crave food all the time. It dies off after the holidays. You might just be goign through the wave of overdoing it that comes with the holidays, regardless of whether or not you’re at a party. We’re inundated with the music, images, ads, etc. Everythign is telling us to buy more, eat more, drink more, so it’…[Read more]
Where I live, cycling isn’t an option all year round so I just automatically rule it out. For me, the automatic would be an elliptical that has arm movement like a ski machine has. A stationary bike with arms that move is good, too. Swimming is great but only if you have it available all the time. It’s also better not to always do the same wor…[Read more]
