Laughing Yoga Leader

I am a certified Laughing Yoga leader. This uses both laughing & breathing(where the yoga term comes in) to get one's exercise. There are many benefits to this type of exercise including:
lower blood pressure, increased circulation, lowered levels of cortisol (stress hormone). I will be adding to this, as I hope to branch out from my laughing club into leading sessions at conferences and lectures.

I have been on the yo-yo weight-loss journey for 20 years. I am looking forward to eating healthy consistently. I need to translate the knowledge into living.

I have a book, "The End of Overeating: Taking Control ..." by David Kessler. It REALLY helps with understanding why some of us go out of control (binge) on certain foods.

If you can get a copy of this learn about hyperpalatable food, it can help you choose more wisely especially when eating out!!

With knowledge and motivation from all of you, I will be who I want to be!
THANKS!
Sharon

"Demand more of yourself when it comes to nutrition." Joe Downie

"I have learned that in order to keep my weight down, it is 1/3 good nutrition, 1/3 fitness and 1/3 positive mindset. If one of those is out of order it usually creates an imbalance and that can lead to trouble." Debra Mazda

It is sad that the kids are back in school and not around so much anymore. What's sadder is how fast they are growing up. One's in 7th grade and the other a sophomore in high school this year. Where did the time go? I want them back around again. emoticon

I do workout with DVD's. I also do Wii Active (both) and use the computer for Sparkpeople videos. I haven't been around in awhile and have come back this week - because - the kids have started school and I can finally get back into a workout schedule while they are in school. I miss them, but I really need to get back to taking care of me, too. emoticon

We British are very good at taking something that is basically quite simple, and turning it into something difficult and complicated!
