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

"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

So what do you think? Did Ye win fair and square? That was a really good race. I'm glad I got to watch it but feel sorry for her with everyone harping at her. Not sure how she could have doped if they have to go thru so many tests.

To answer your question - I got the Plantar Massage Balls at the same store I got the shoes and insoles: Roadrunner Sports. I don't know that it's necessary to buy special balls, though. They seem to be pretty ordinary - solid, perhaps wooden - 1.5" for the arch area and 1" for the ball of the foot and the heel.

Oh no you did not just call me granny! LOL Just for that, I'm not going to pretend it's you swimming for the US Olympic team!

Are you ready to watch the opening ceremonies?!
