I am giving the least stars on Yelp for them that I can. I could not buy my family many gifts for Christmas due to their use of my bank account as their own personal ATM. I complained to the manager. They could give me NO explanation of the unauthorized deductions. When... Sat, 26 Dec 2015 15:00:47 EST New Years resolutions 2016. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6050042 Odd, I started using Sparkpeople and step counters as a New Years resolution in 2010. I have used step counters to get ten thousand steps a day every two days since that time. I have kept my resolution for five years, and at New Years it will be SIX. Sun, 20 Dec 2015 01:27:59 EST Fat loss and corsets, the lost truth. It really works! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6046188 I am reading books & blogs on tightlaceing, and how to get small using corsets. It really works! <BR> <BR> It turns out steel boned tightlacing corsets can make you go down many dress sizes. They do not JUST shrink the mid-drift. They cinch down the top of the stomach causing you to crave less food. You have to wear them an inch tighter than your normal waist, and you have to wear them to sleep every night. A good personal report on a lady who did this task is the book "Victorian Secrets,... Sat, 12 Dec 2015 01:18:53 EST Vitamin D and fat burning, the research link. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6044612 A great deal of new research has been done on vitamin D from the sun, and fitness. It seems sun screen advertisements have done too-good of a job at making people hate the sun, and it is bad for people's health in some ways. It also explains why so many people go on health kicks for fitness at New Years, in the depth of winter when it is dark with no sun. So getting a bit bronze if you do not do it in overkill can be good for fitness. <BR> <BR> http://fitnessone.net/how-tanning-can-he<BR>...

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 19:42:31 EST Switch to Fitbit One from Fitbit Zip http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5996861 Switch to the Fitbit One from the Fitbit Zip <BR> <BR> This month I switched from the Fitbit One to the Fitbit Zip step counter. They are both great gadgets for increasing your activity levels. There are many studies internationally confirming that 10,000 steps per day increases health. In addition 12,000 or more can greatly improve fitness. It has been a few weeks, and I have had a chance to understand the workings of the One. <BR> <BR> So far I like that the One has a watch with ala... Sun, 13 Sep 2015 21:33:26 EST Skinny Olympians eating 5 Eggs Daily http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5996842 Here is a good article on "How the Olympic Athletes Eat" online. There seems to be popular myth online that to be small you must eat no more than 1,500 calories per day. “There is no fitness that can counteract diet.” However, these athletes featured are NOT huge in weight, are in prime activity condition, and yet eat FIVE eggs a day for breakfast! In addition they log that they eat 6000 calories per day in their food journals. In many verified studies high activity is more advantageous...

Now it is packed into boxes for the new house, and I can only use the bike. I miss the Elliptical! Gazelle Elliptical, plus Slendertone belt, plus fitness bike warm-up works REALLY well at causing results. (All available on Amazon.com) I have asthma so I am a bit of an extreme cardio wimp, and I have to hunt down the things that work around the slowness. That will be one of the first things I unpack and use. Until then I will...
