Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! DH share an interesting article the other day, which pretty much resonated what Rush Limbaugh mentioned on his show where he stated…
I’m on record as saying that exercise is not the way to lose weight, and all this preoccupation with it as a weight loss regimen is absurd.
It kinda makes sense, you know? I’m not advocating abandoning your fitness routine (I’m not quitting) nor is Rush or the article because exercise does give many good health benefits. What it all boils down to is, you eat more calories than your body burns and that’s why we gain weight.
I fell victim to the in-between eating pitfall. Who hasn’t? I made excuses for it by saying, I’m going to workout a little longertoday. Well, that’s the wrong approach. It takes about 30-minutes of cardio to burn 200 calories. How many times per/day do you eat snacks? Think about that for a moment. Scary, right? I committed myself last week to to not have any snacks. I didn’t entirely, but the diet change along (I actually exercised less and ate normal foods) was enough to shed 2.5 pounds from last Sunday weight check. Coincidence? I don’t know, but it’s an exciting and surprising development.
This is a wake up call to rethink my diet. I’m not keeping a food journal nor am I counting calories. The thing I’m doing is making well-thought out choices in what, when, and how much I eat. I am determined to Do It or Else die Trying to Do Right!
Do you have successful diet tips and secrets to share? If so, I can’t wait to read about them!
It’s time to hit the road again and I hope you’ll hop in the backseat for the ride as I head over to meet a few of my fellow A2Zroadsters. Thanks for stopping by!
Get to your feet with Sid for the Continental Drift!
Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! This week I spied vintage footage of women exercising in the 40s. Dang, I’m doing it all wrong, too! You can guess where this morning giggles are going, right? Join me for more exercise humor on Sunday Sillies!
Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! If you’re a long-time follower, then you know I’m a perpetual dieter and an avid exerciser. This doesn’t mean I’m a lean, mean fighting machine, but I do take eating right and fitness seriously and I do my best to keep in shape. My motto: One life; one body make the most of it!
However, I am a real person with short comings and the only way to see an end to these self inflected body flaws due to motherhood is cosmetic surgery. Basically, I have two options. They are: I can fret over my imperfections or laugh at them. Hmm, I chose to laugh. Having the last laugh on me (maybe you, too), let’s take a light approach to diet & exercise.
I’m in total combat mode! Why? I’ve been a major slacker in my dieting. At the start of the New Year I felt charged with enthusiasm to get things cranking. The truth is I just wasn’t emotionally on board. However, warmer weather is on the loom, and it’s painfully clear it’s time to push myself to melt some unwanted pounds pronto. It’s won’t be an easy battle and it may get down right ugly. Determined to my guns and if necessary going completely nuclear with my approach. Continue reading →
