Fighting cold or the flu?

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Which of the following supplements can help prevent colds and the flu?
• Echinacea
• Vitamin C
• Zinc
None of the above
Although each of these substances have been linked to cold prevention in some studies, but the jury's still out on the best role for herbal and vitamin supplements. According to respected organizations (such as the National Institutes of Health and the National Lung Association), there is no conclusive evidence that supports the notion that taking large doses of vitamin C, zinc, or Echinacea will prevent colds. However, these nutrients may reduce the severity or duration of some symptoms. Always talk to your doctor before taking any supplements.

I have read test show, that chicken soup is the only thing that helps against the flu

Strength training elevates your metabolism immediately following a workout.

Friday, August 15, 2014

Johns Hopkins researchers found that while aerobic exercise burns more calories at the time you are exercising, your metabolism returns to normal about 30 minutes after you finish your workout. Individuals who perform strength training, however, elevate their metabolisms (burn more calories) for two hours after their workouts end.

    That means that the different between cardio training and strength training is that it both makes you use use more calories. Cardio training is mainly during the process while strength training lowers your metabolism plus makes you stronger.
If you are overweight you are in no risk of looking like a man by muscle training. Your fat will always look female emoticon

You just have to drink enough water...

A whole day swim..

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

My nephew begged to come with me to the Bathing Land in Southern Seeland..
So off we went.
He is 15 years old so he could continue on and on
We arrived at 12.30 and went at 17.30
I took some pauses in the sauna and damp room and spa, but swam and went down the (rutchebane) the most of the time.
Resting was necessary as I had to drive 96 km afterwards and have responsibility of security.
Afterwards my nephew was completely silent. I felt thoroughly rinsed and totally relaxed in my body.
I had a nice sleep but now I have a slight pain in my back.
Wonderful when exercise is playing and wonderful to take time sometimes for such a day. But to expensive for everyday. My nephew explained he would buy the place and make the prices low enough for poor people too.

Have a wonderful day! Yoga today, perhaps, for the neck?

A weekend of fun exercise...

Sunday, July 20, 2014

One of my rowing friends invited me to come to a Bathingland in the southern part of Zeeland in Denmark.. Fortunately one of the others who was going couldn´t come anyway
So I got 2 days instead of one..
I arrived at 9am saturday after a 96 km ride in my car..
After a half an hour we all - 6 grown-ups and 2 small children went to the swimming and other activities place..
Nice warm water and different pools and "rutchebaner" and bowling and a place for kids to climb which is strong enough for a playful grown-up..
There also was a sauna and I got some foot massage.. 2 days of concern on my body and playing rather than worrying about this and that and not finding enough time to sleep enough clearing my house etc.
I feel a lot of energy for my everyday life that begins tomorrow.
I certainly will say yes another time
And I believe the others also enjoyed my company - At least one of them said so..
Now it is 030Am monday so I´d better go to bed
Sleep well
Yes wellness and activity and with much younger people than me - SUPER emoticon

Cleaning and clearing

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

How long time do you use every day to clean and clear your house?
15 minutes, 30 minutes or 1 hour or something else..

What do you find most effective?
Do you do it with other people (some times)?
Thank you
My biggest problem is paper piling up and undone tasks
And things piling up
And projects not done

    I just read this: A 2005 study published in the British Journal of Nutrition showed that Brits burn more than 50,000 calories a year--nearly 15 pounds of fat--just by cleaning their homes.

    I'm a weekend warrior. During the week it's all about keeping my head above water. The most I do during the week is keep up with my dishes!

    I don't spend a lot of time cleaning each day...I should probably spend a lot more...but once a week I do a more intense cleaning, and once a month I go through papers to see what I can put in recycling. (I should probably do that more often too).
