Walk Your Weight Off
Walk your weight off and feel relaxed in the process. Walking is not a strenuous activity. You don’t need to be a PowerBuilder to walk around. You can take a few minutes to walk around the neighborhood , the local park or a treadmill and it will improve your mood, attitude, and body.
INTERVAL TRAINING FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Interval training for weight loss is an important topic to consider.
The parasympathetic system and the sympathetic system of the body are part of the nervous system. The parasympathetic system is associated with the “digest and rest” reflexes where the body is calm and relaxed. The sympathetic system is associated with the “fight or flight” reflexes when the body feels threatened. Adrenaline pumping, fast breathing, and increased heart rates are all results of the sympathetic system reacting to escape the danger.

Lose weight while walking on the boardwalk and having fun is my inspiration of the day.
When I visited Atlantic City, NJ in the summer of 2016, I decided that I was not going to gamble in the casino. Maybe I would use some of the “free” money that the casino gives you as a new visitor where you can play in the “penny” machines, but I am well aware that the house always wins.
Before I went to play, I went for a walk on the boardwalk. It was a cloudy day. The weather channel had predicted rain, so I packed my oversize size S raincoat into my purse.
I walked in the direction to all the other casinos. The bus had stopped in the last resort on the boardwalk. It was easy to find the entrance to the boardwalk. There was a large door to the boardwalk that I found after doing a little exploring. I had to go down a level and turn to the left from where the bus stopped.
I lost two pounds in one week without diet because I had a very stressful situation in the family.
The following article portrays stressful and descriptive clinical situations. If you are sensitive to that type of material, I recommend you to skip reading this article.
My Mom Broke Her Hip
Sometimes I believe that I have things under control. I believe that I am doing the things that I am supposed to be doing and times are smooth. Out of no where, life has a way of –BAM!!!– shaking things down.
This stressful event happened to me last month when I had to travel to Peru. I left as soon as I could after my brother called me to say that our almost 90 year old mom had fallen. She had broken her hip and needed surgery.
Before that, both of my brothers were taking good care of her. They made sure she took her multivitamins, ate healthy, and walked daily. They made sure our mother had a good time visiting her farm often and going to her club to socialize. Her blood pressure was normal for a year and she was not even taking medicine for her normal blood pressure.
The Olympics can be an inspiration to lose weight. I watched the Inauguration Ceremony of the Rio Olympics 2016.
While I was watching it I eat a handful of blueberries , a Greek yogurt and I drank a couple of glasses of water along the way.
Sometimes I eat lettuce instead of pop corn while I watch TV. It has fewer calories.
I am writing about the Olympics because it was always an inspiration to me to do exercises and do the best I could in other areas of my life
I loved watching the Inauguration ceremony. It was very colorful with the shows, the music, and the dancing. There was cultural expression, spectacular firecrackers a happy parade with young athletes and their teams.
Brazil had a difficult time lately but their enthusiasm and hard work put this ceremony together in a fantastic way. It was emotional and beautiful to me.
