To Exercise or Not..OpenTrackback Weekend

Simply believing you are exercising can help you become thinner, researchers say.

Slimming while you work? It’s worth thinking about

Those who do physically demanding jobs and are aware of the potential health benefits of their work lose more weight and have lower blood pressure than those who do the same jobs but do not realise the positive side-effects.

“If you can put the mind in a healthy place, you can have dramatic physiological consequences. If the mind is fully in a healthy place, the body will be as well.”

.. “Our mindsets are hard to change. So if you’re just sitting on the couch and just telling yourself that you’re exercising, you’re not going to believe yourself and so there will be no change.”

Well shoot.
I thought this was gunna be a couch potatoes dream.
Sorry. Heh.

If it weren’t for the fact that the TV set and the refrigerator are so far apart, some of us wouldn’t get any exercise at all.
Joey Adams

The only exercise some people get is jumping to conclusions, running down their friends, side-stepping responsibility, and pushing their luck!

A man’s health can be judged by which he takes two at a time – pills or stairs.
Joan Welsh

I really don’t think I need buns of steel. I’d be happy with buns of cinnamon.

As most of y’all know, I am a bit of an excercise freak myself. But heck, if just “thinking” that I am shedding pounds while eatin some cheesecake works…well then ..bring it on!

    I have my perfect weight, and if I start gaining 3, 4, 5 pounds over that weight, I get busy on the treadmill. The treadmill will get the pounds off, but even better it gets the inches off. Speed walk 3 miles and it does wonders.

    I baked three big pans of homemade lasagna yesterday with chocolate dipped strawberries after, yum yum. Time for the treadmill

    p.s. I used Splenda in the chocolate for the strawberries, so no sugar.

    I’m not buying into it. I would like to see a documented study…but I admit to being cynical.
    Either way, exercising three times a week isn’t that much and it’s been clinically documented for effectiveness.
    I saw a report yesterday about eating cereal as a means of dieting. Cheerios was at the top of the list. Basically, it stated that you could eat as much Cheerios as you want (2% milk…which I despise).
    Have a great weekend Angel to you and your readers!

    No, I’m not a couch potato, Angel. I’m a computer potato! LOL! But seriously, I run a Farm and Nursery, and get plenty of excersise. We don’t have to “work out” around here to get excersise. Hard work does the trick. Besides that, we have a second floor. No “stairmaster” needed in this house!

  12. Joe Gringo says:

    I get my exercise on the golf course :o ) and chasing my “Little Joe’s” around, used to be a workout nut, my optimum weight of 217 has now gone up to 230 at 6’5″……..I now just have the Mrs. pack a little exta punch of chilé in all of our meals to sweat off the extra pounds! ;-)

  13. Layla says:

    I am a huge power walker so I do not worry too much about my consumption of balanced food–it is the treats, which I do allow myself from time to time.
