Yo-yo, yet another reason not to...
Monday, January 21, 2013
I've just returned from a long weekend at the beach. Unfortunately, I tend to undo the mega walks around the island (or cycling when weather permits) with overeating at our favorite restaurants (the BEST key lime pie at this place, the BEST pineapple/coconut sauce over salmon at the other place, etc. etc. etc.) Thankfully, our favorite ice cream shop was closed for the season :)
When I got home, I caught up on the local news by reviewing all the papers that accumulated in the yard in our absence (How fast can you say, "Look, thieves, we're not at home!"?). There was an interesting article related to the yo-yo dieting of women. Been there, done that! There is now evidence that yo-yo'ing is bad for your heart. I always figured that, but now there is proof - yet another reason to get it off and keep it off!
If you're interested in the article, it can be found at: http://www.journalnow.com/news
This info combined with the news shared in golfgma's blog "Memory and Exercise" should compel me to establish a healthy fitness regimen once and for all. Will it? Let's hope so!
I'm determined to be fitter in 2013. Please join me!
