this world

"This modern world took our activity away. It is not our fault" Leslie Sansone . We can take it back, not the way it was before but in a new way . Our own way. We can choose to add it back by mindful living. Today I did 45 minutes 3 mile video walk. I am choosing to eat with the spar tracker . not slavishly but by making exchanges in each food group that fit my circumstances today. When I have a big driving in the car day like yesterday I will get out of the car at least every hour and walk 500 steps, counted on the pedometer. This may not bring scale changes the way I want but it will bring health changes and isn't that the more important part of this journey ?
I was also thinking about some friends who can not walk for one reason or another. If we can not walk because of our body or circumstance . Let's think what can we do to increase our movement? Upper body , legs, feet. neck stretches ? Today while riding in the car I am able to tighten and relax my muscles . I do not know how much isometrics help when sitting but I will do this as I begin driving today. I wonder how long I will be able to do this . Lets keep the spark with us.

    From my experiences, isometrics do little to help with calorie burn. However, if you are thin, they do much to help keep from getting flabby....(I used to sit and do ab work in school or at the office).

    Funny u should mention some can't walk for some reason or other, I have low back pain but teh workout today that I did didn't affect that so - I guess there is always a way to lose weight without pain :)

    Oh and good luck on ur journey :)

    Isometrics -- GREAT for muscle tone! So, do them!

    Drive safely.

    Yes, this culture of hurry up and move onto the next task can be weary-ing. It's good to take a little time to just BE . . . just enjoy . . . take our time.
