Wanna burn some calories?

Friday, January 17, 2014

Ive been dwelling on why people 100 years ago were thinner. Theres several reasons but think about it. They chopped their own wood, gathered eggs, worked in the garden, plucked their chickens, hunted for food, milked their cows, fetched water, hung clothes on the line and walked to the outhouse to use the restroom! ;)
Wanna burn some calories? Change your life and incorporate one of these into your life. If you have land, buy chickens or a cow. Springs coming..put you in a clothes line!
Just a thought

    I think you are totally dead on target. I was raised on a farm and my dad worked outside all day doing manual labor. He was rail thin and he ate everything in site. We had a cow and he used to pour whole cream into and onto everything he ate - he used it instead of milk on his cereal, in his coffee, on his fruit, you name it. And that's just one example of the kind of calories he consumed. If I ate like that every day now, I would weight at least 600 pounds.... emoticon

    I have to agree with winachst on this. The federal government has gotten way too involved in our food consumption. Just look at how much food contains GMO's. In the olden days the food was truly organic. Sad thing is one can't even plant seeds nowadays and get truly organic because Monsanto owns 90% of the seed companies. Read up on sustainable lifestyles and non GMOs. I can give you some links if you'd like.

    There is that and the fact that our food supply has changed; the food we buy is now food-like and not real food. The items are not close to want Mother Nature has provided

    I love your blog. We live on 4 acres. This year we are going clean it up. Plant a garden, get some chickens and hang a clothes line. Build out door things for the kids to do. Im looking forward to it all.
