What's a good way to say goodbye? I have come to the conclusion that no goodbye will ever be easy, no matter how nice it would be. I have to say goodbye to someone very important to me today. Today is the last time I will see my boyfriend for about 2 months, when I will hopefully get to see him for an afternoon in Seville, Spain. After I won't see him in person until May. It will be a busy semester though so I should be distracted enough for this to work out just fine. We aren't concerned too much, our only worries is missing each other lots. We haven't been together for too long when you think about it. Well, 6.5 months is pretty good I think and I find that I have fallen in love with him. This gives me the hope that things will work out well!
One thing that we have both decided is that we will try and be in better shape for the other person when we see each other again. I am hoping to not so much to loose weight, I am at a healthy weight now, but I do want to become stronger and I want to get back into running shape as well.
According to the 2005 dietary guidelines, in order to maintain your current body weight, a person should exercise about 60 minutes a day. And 60-90 minutes a day for changing your body weight.
However, in more recent studies it is said that strength training should not be done more than 2 or 3 times per week, where as running or cardiovascular exercise should be 5 to 6 times a week. It is also recommended that for strength training, people should not work the same muscle group two days in a row due to risk of hurting your muscles.
What is a good way to say goodbye though? Any ideas?
