Our bodies are like a cars.....

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Earlier today was not a good. But I feel okay now. After a few weeks of no fast food, I ordered two tacos and a plain chicken sandwich, which ended up being my late breakfast. A few hours later, I suffered from dizziness and headaches. emoticon

I KNEW it was the fast food and in addition to the fast food, I had a small soda and some chocolate. All which I knew caused my ill feeling today. I told myself, "No More, No More. I see it now". And I do see it now. I see what we put into our bodies can really affect our health. I also did a trial and error over the last few months. I've noticed that when I eat foods, I know my body doesn't agree with, I immediately feel ill and not right from it. When I put healthy things into my body, I feel energetic, positive, overall healthy. I know what my body can and cannot tolerate and my body doesn't like fast food, junk food, dairy, gluten, etc. I'm starting my exercises again soon, maybe Sunday. Overall, I've learned our bodies are like cars. What we put into them, can have a totally different output. Put gas into a car, it runs and runs. Put anything other than gas, and it won't budge. Same with our bodies, when we make healthier choices and lifestyle changes, we run and run. Other choices we make, and we don't have the energy. I really see it now. And hopefully, I will stick with it this around. I have my entire life ahead of me, I would like to inspire others.

I've been interested in doing yoga, but I'm 300s plus pounds. Does Yoga offer the same benefits as regular exercising?

WE CAN DO THIS! emoticon

    I love your attitude and I am also trying to learn from trial and error....lots of error. emoticon My problem is that nothing really disagrees with me or makes me sick, but too much makes me fat and too much fat makes my body uncomfortable and painful.
    I just do the best I can each day and keep pluggin' along. emoticon

    For me yoga offers another way to increase flexibility and strength. It also helps quiet my mind. I haven't watched all of the following, but it my give you an idea:
    Just My Size Yoga
    As with all new things be patient with yourself as you learn this. BTW breathing is a skill in yoga. :)
    I love your spirit of exploration... you willingness to seek out the new. Enjoy your journey.

    Love the car analogy.

    Yoga increases your flexibility which is important in an exercise regime, but I don't think it should replace strength training and cardio altogether. A comprehensive workout should include all three. Most of all though, finding things you enjoy doing is the first step toward success! Get adventurous and experiment.
