Getting Hooked

Lately,  I  have been questioned as to what is my secret to looking younger than my years and having smooth skin?  Somehow my answer is not what they expected to hear.  It usually goes like this:

1. Exercise 3-4 times a week combining weights for body sculpting.

2. Yoga for balance and mental alertness and also improving our oxygen level therefore,  giving our skin a natural glow.

3.   Pilate’s  is strengthening our core which gives us long lean muscle, great posture  and a flat tummy area.

Gee, I was hoping there was a magic potion they kidding reply followed by I’m so lazy, I don’t have the time, I can’t afford the classes.   Excuses, excuses and more of the same.

My answer  to those serious about looking and feeling good,  four – five hours a week,  is a good start to becoming addicted to feeling mentally, physically and emotionally charged.   This tiny investment of  time will multiply itself  over and over as you gain strength, balance and feeling of well-being.   By the way, who better than you,  deserves to be “fit as a fiddle.”  My motto is  “If Ms Millie can, so can you”

Go for it!  And let me know your progress!

    I’m one who has been giving excuses for years. Ms Millie and Shaddy are inspiring me to start taking care of myself. Down loaded some yoga exercises the other day and am slowly going to increase my workouts. So smile my friend, you have influenced an old fat boy to get healthier while I am still fairly healthy.

    You have made my day! I can hardly wait to hear your positive feedback after a few tough days of muscles you did not remember you had. Hang in there!

    Yoga’s great for flexibility and muscle tone, Walk, but you need to do something else, too. Walking is the best and cheapest exercise around. Swimming is terrific, unless you’re like me and can’t swim and breathe at the same time. Bicycles are good.

    As for me, I just can’t get into and stick with a regimen. I choose walking and picking up litter as my exercise. Plus biking and kayaking, and working my butt off around this place. I go litter picking about 6 p.m. for three or four hours–at dinner time. When I get home, I’m not too hungry, so I skip dinner and just have a snack.

    Two summers ago I lost 30 lbs. with that routine.
