In the past week
I started doing regular workouts – nothing too dramatic. stuff like brisk walking – every day and doing yoga every evening. I’m not great at yoga but I did a beginner version every night for a while. I found that I slept better and I wasn’t as stiff when I woke up. My shoulder pain pretty much disappeared and I stopped getting a pinched nerve…[Read more]
Being in your healthy weight zone always gives you a health advantage. It doesn’t mean you’ll cure any diseases but it’ll give your body a better shot overall and you’ll probably just feel better overall.

I think it’s somewhat a balance between the two. It’s good that you’re not sitting all day if you’re on your feet, but the whole point to actual exercise is to use your heart, lungs and muscles. So if you’re sitting all day, get up and stretch every half hour to an hour. Walk around a short bit, then you can sit again. Then really enjoy you…[Read more]
I think that the kind with the caffeine is healthier for you as long as you don’t have too much and as long as you don’t have bad reactions to caffeine. I didn’t used to think this but have you seen all the great studies about what caffeine can do? It has a ton of benefits as long as you have it in moderation. Im’ impressed with something so…[Read more]
I’ve been looking to try new fitness and yoga videos and I went to Gaiam because that’s where I used to like my videos. I found out that they’re not really doing downloadables or even dvd as much as they used to. THey have the Gaia subscription streaming. Is it worth it? That seems like a pretty big monthly fee for what I would be using it for…[Read more]
Those gel packs are for more extreme electrolyte and energy needs and are very wasteful. I can see why you don’t want chocolate and I’m glad you said that because my first suggestion would have been chocolate cocoa protein balls. What about trail mix with nuts and seeds?
Thanks! I’m looking around at my options now. Feeling nervous but I’m looking for something that advertises something like “beginner’ or something like that. I hope I find something good. you all have me pumped about it now!
If you’re already struggling with weight going up and down from PCOS, then the odds are it will always be a challenge. But you can prevent it. There are lots of diets, strategies and tips you can use. Talk to your doctor. You’ll get some good advice there. There are some good articles online, too. Just be careful which ones you believe because t…[Read more]
Are all spin classes as intense as the ones I’ve seen on TV? I’m really interested in trying one but the intensity I’ve seen is daunting to me. I want to be challenged, but not pushed to the point that I feel sick.
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?
