Hello, Well, I had a lot to do lately and didn't have time to exercise for 3 weeks! Not having time to do exercise is a funny thing for me to say, since I'm always telling everyone, "if you have time for TV..You have time to exercise." Well, I didn't have time for TV either. Man, was that like being in jail! I gained 5 lbs., augh! It got me thinking about my family history...I have 3 sisters, so lets call them 1,2, and 3....Anyhow, my mom and sister 2 were and are 200 lbs. (My mom lost her weight from cancer, just before she died.) Sister 1 was skinny and muscular until she had to get a different job and is gradually starting to put on weight and loose muscle tone. Her new job isn't as active and hard manual labor as her first. Sister 3 is only 10% overweight, so she isn't very fat. I'm the perfect weight for my height and build. I thought about it and wondered why some sisters are really fat and others aren't. Mom and sister 2 aways went on fad diets, would loose some weight, go off, and gain it all back plus more weight. Moms and sister 2 never exercised! (Like duh.) That's the key...Exercise. I just want everyone to know how important exercise really is for looking good, staying healthy, and feeling good.
Last night I did 20 min. of Kung Fu with my son and 45 min. of aerobics. Boy, to I feel much better! I'm not cranky...I sleep like a baby...I can feel my body burning the fat and cal. Exercise rocks! By-the-way, I'm 41 and it is really important for us old foggies to get out there and exercise. Sorry to bore you all.
