Exercising in heels...cut the crap ladies!

http://shine.yahoo.com/fashion-beauty/would-you-exercise-in-high-heels--203624066.html Vanity has gone too far. It's a known fact that worn over time, high heels can cause a variety of lower extremity aliments; just ask a podiatrist. Now there are classes offered to exercise in heels...why? The simple answer is that the name of the game is money and there's a sucker born every minute. Please don't be a victim of deception. Wear the proper gear for your workout routine (ie: athletic shoes). Be safe, not sorry!

Re post April 27th post: Cardio/Weights

I have been lifting weights prior to doing cardio since my April post and I really do not see a difference. I think the main focus should be on switching up you're routine to trick your muscles. Also, don't always workout them same muscle groups. One day do triceps and calves; the next day do biceps and quadriceps. This gives each muscle group a resting period to recuperate and grow.

I am always up for a challenge and to try something new. If you have any suggestions, please let me know because there's always room for improvement and growth.

As BIG as an Airplane


I'm sorry to say that when I read this MSN post I didn't agree with most of its content. First of all, let's take a closer look at what constitutes obesity. Apparently, when a person is more than 50 pounds overweight they are considered obese. But the number on the scale is really not the issue; it’s the health and welfare of the obese person and all the medical and emotional issues that come along with it.

Being obese is an addiction and is equivalent to substance abuse. When you talk to someone who’s overweight about food their eyes light up like a Christmas tree...very sad. Food is a necessity for an average mind, yet unstoppable crack for the obese. I believe doctors need to look closer into the psychological aspect.

As far as the airlines go, is it really Southwest, or any other airlines fault? I can’t put the “blame” on either side. Yes, I do agree with Kenlie about the airlines having to be more consistent with their policies for whether or not a passenger needs to buy one or two seats. But think about this: when you have baggage that is over a certain weight limit, you need to pay an additional cost. I believe they are trying to enforce the same policy with overweight/obese people. People aren’t luggage, so it’s a very sticky subject to put out there for the industry. The seats are cramped already and they have to keep in mind the comfort of the passengers that may have to sit next to someone who is exploding out of their seat.

All in all, an overweight person reading this may despise me for my opinion on the matter. I do work very hard in everything I do in my life: my family, my job and my workout routine. Someone overweight didn’t start off that way; they became stagnant and put in more than they burned until it became a huge problem. I’m writing this to help everyone big or small to understand that if you do have an issue please seek medical/professional help and look at both sides of the story. I do praise Kenlie for loosing weight and continuing to do so with diet and exercise. To everyone who is striving to do their best, keep up the good workouts.

Whole Grain Goodness


I always choose whole grain breads, pasta and rice over the processed white ones. Not only are they more nutritious for you, but all in all they taste better.

What struck me was the craze of completely cutting out carbohydrates(the Atkins Diet). This diet, or any extreme diets, is unsatisfying and unhealthy to say the least. Eating whole wheat and grains is just part of your healthy diet along with plenty of fruits and veggies.

Ok, so I'm going to try this. I do cardio first and then weights (it sounds like what most people do). I am curious to see if there is a significate change in my muscular structure. Dare to take this challenge with me? If you do, please send feedback. I am always looking for challenges and changes to my workout schedule, aren't you?

What Foods are Truly Good for You

This is the best piece of advice I have seen in ages. Like I have been saying, if it comes from the ground, it's good to eat. Second, if it came from a bird, it's OK to eat. Lastly, if it came from another large land mammal or from the sea, you should think twice before putting it in your mouth. F.Y.I: Monsters Inside Me (no more need said, just watch one episode).
