Wishing all A Wonderful Gobble Gobble

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Yes, folks, my wish for you is a Happy Thanksgiving.

And although I've learned a lot about healthy choices here at SP, I am unabashedly looking forward to enjoying yummy stuff today. That's just the way it is.

Have a fun holiday. Thanks to all who've been so helpful in my SP journey.

At a Point Where Exercise Doesn't Invigorate, It Tires Me

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

I think 3 hours a day is too much. It tires me out rather than making me feel better.

Wishing all a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    When I read your blog.. a phrase came to my mind "train smarter, not harder" Three hours is a lot of time. Perhaps you could do something challenging for a shorter period of time? I switch my routine up seasonally, probably I should change it more often. I even switch things up during the week. Water walking on Monday, Wednesday, Laps on Tuesday, Thursday. Walks on weekends. Monday- Friday at 6:30 I put on channel PBS 4U and do Classical Stretch. It is a nice way to start the day,

Hope this sparks some thoughts for you.

    That's called over training.

    Sp slimmerjesse-the body adapts. You have actually hit a motion plateau. Vary it up a bit. Add a friend; a book of jokes, confidence lifting puzzle books like word search, Sudoku, logic puzzles, more reasons to laugh, select a different muscle group each session. Keep the body guessing and stale will fade to refresh and please your attitude. You donít really want to stop, do you? Do something somewhere else. Resistance exercise adds HGH human growth hormone boost to muscle toxin recovery. Mostly just laugh!

    I think it is too much unless you are seriously training to be an Olympic athlete or professional.

    3 hrs is definitely too much IMHO! I don't even do that on my long runs!

Grazing is Best (another radio report)

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

We constantly hear, on the news, about this or that new diet and health discovery. Last night, I heard that grazers - those who eat several times during the day - do best with weight loss. Keeping the body nourished, they explained, makes it less likely that you'll get super-hungry and shovel food into your mouth at meals.

Gee, this is news? So glad there are places like SP where we learn healthy lifestyle choices and not rely on media so-called revelations. I just thought it was funny to hear this supposed news.

Another interesting example is Womans World magazine in which, each week, there's a new diet phenomenon that is the quick fix of the moment.

Wishing all a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday season.

    Ah the media frenzy!!!
Grazing may have been the way to go for hunter and gatherers. Sure we need to nourish our body not stuff it like some poor turkey. :)
Happy Thanksgiving.

    Happy Thanksgiving! I wish the grazing thing was true, but then I wish it were all true, quick diet fixes all of it. Then I could be skinny in minutes, LOL

    It is pretty funny listening to and reading about these diets in the media. You're right about SP -- it's been just what I needed! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving too!

    What a wonderful idea. I listen to NPR on my nano while I walk. Makes exercising more palatable.

    I bought a kindle 3 G a couple of months ago, then I heard the fire was coming out. I got so bummed. Glad you like it.

    What about the battery life? One of the things I love about mine is only having to charge it once a week! Course I can watch movies on my iPad. But I love redundancy.

As my mom would say, use it in good health!

How Wonderful When Old Sparkfriends Reappear!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

The other day I noticed how many spark friends have disappeared from the site. However, it's great when one reappears - as has happened today.

Wishing all a wonderful day.

    I've wondered what other Sparkers do, when a friend turns their page offline or hasn't been active in months. I've been keeping mine. I'm glad I'm not the only one. emoticon
