Weight Loss Like Nobody's Business
Written by Diet Bites
Have you ever been trying especially hard to drop all those pesky pounds when some nosey so-in-so sticks their waddle into your business and starts giving you their sage weight loss and dieting advice?
And it's not just 'sage' advice - rather their opinion.
Most of us don't like being told what to do. It's the main reason why we balk when a higher authority tells us that we need to lose weight - whether the order comes from our doctor or a beloved family member.
If you find that you have a so-in-so that just won't stay out of your Weight Loss Business AND if you find their advice irritating, our advice (there is a joke here somewhere) is to just blow with the wind. Don't let it get to you - and keep-on-keeping-on losing those pounds.
More times than not, people try to be helpful. It's just some times, they don't have the tact to do such.
Sage Diet Tips
Weight loss takes time - sometimes more time than other times. We may get frustrated. We may get tired of watching every single thing that passes through our lips. We may get disappointed because the numbers on our weight scales appear to be locked in neutral.
And we may get blue.
During moments like this - it's time to grab the old sneakers and get to moving. Interacting with nature not only keeps your mind occupied, it will help those pounds slip off easier. Don't be blue - get into you! YOU and nature!
Taking the Action Indoors
If you don't like getting out and getting in touch with Mother Nature, there is nothing wrong with taking the activity level indoors.
Keep in mind that every movement that your body makes - whether it's a little or big movement. When you blink your eyes, you're burning energy (calories) or when you talk, turn your head or breathe.
You can also burn energy through performing activities other than those which are typically associated with losing fat. If you bake a loaf of bread - or any recipe, you're moving about as your working to create your masterpiece, thus you are burning energy values.
The reason why - or at least one of the reasons why aerobic varieties of activity are desirable is because they get the rate of the heart increased to a level to where this largest muscle of the body is strengthened. But yes - you can accomplish such using non-traditional methods of exercise.
There are certain groups within our society who are at optimum health, rarely having need of a doctor's intervention yet who never do jumping jacks, windmills or squats. Yet they do work hard and long each and every day, thus rendering them a strong, fit and healthy body.
In summary, if you don't like the Great Outdoors, then find more things that involve activity for the Great Indoors. No matter if you're among the birds, bees and trees OR in your comfortable living area of your abode, all expended energy assists in balancing the number of calories consumed throughout your day. While eye-blinking and breathing won't do much as far as strengthening the body, the more aggressive activities certainly will accomplish such.
