And The Answer Is.............

Monday, October 20, 2014

Exercise is the answer. When done regularly, it burns fat (yea), brightens mood, fights disease, and even makes us more attractive.

No Surprise Here!

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Martin and his wife Debbie walk into a dentist's office. Martin says to the dentist, "Doc, I'm in one heck of a hurry. I have three buddies sitting out in my car waiting for us to play golf, so forget the anaesthetic, I don't have time for the gums to get numb. I just want you to pull the tooth, and be done with it! Today is Friday and we have a 10:00 tee time at the best golf course in town and it's 9:15 already...".

The dentist thought to himself, "My goodness, this is surely a brave man asking to have a tooth pulled without using anything to kill the pain.'' So the dentist asks Martin, "Which tooth is it sir?"

Martin turned to his wife and said' "Open your mouth and show him dear......"



Just like a man!

Cutting Cholesterol Naturally

Thursday, October 16, 2014

The best way to cut cholesterol naturally is by having a training plan and sticking to it. Any exercise will aid heart and health benefits but particular ones seem to control cholesterol best. The more you work out aerobically, as measured by duration or distance, the better the results.

Strength training is effective for improving cholesterol by lowering the LDL and raising the HDL. In talking to teammates I think this is the area we all need the most help. I am guilty of missing strength training more than regular exercise, especially, since I committed myself to getting 10,000 steps per day. I will march in place to get those steps in but the smart thing to do would be lift those dumbbells while marching. Ya think? emoticon

My personal challenge is to get that strength training going three days weekly again.

Got Headache?

Wednesday, October 15, 2014



I have always wondered what the fastest relief for a headache was and today I ran across some useful information. Studies show that a cup of coffee and two ibuprofen gel caps provide the fastest and the longest lasting relief. Apparently the caffeine speeds delivery of the medication, while shrinking swollen blood vessels in the head. For severe migraines the combination of acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine in Excedrin Migraine, for instance, seems to work best.

emoticon plus 2 ibuprofen = Headache relief.

    My go to headache relief is similar - Diet Pepsi, ibuprofen, and usually a Sudafed if it is sinus related. With this weather front that just came through definitely needed the Sudafed. Thanks for posting this to help those that need it.

WHY, POST, BLOG ETC.?

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

We read here on SP and other places the answer to this question. It is simply for accountability. This is the reason it works. When we are accountable to others we have freedom and power. The power comes from others when their suggestions guide us back if we get off track. It is so much easier for others to see things we do wrong, then encourage and build up our confidence to correct and change for better. Trying on our own doesn't work as well because we can let ourselves slide into bad habits if we are accountable to no one.
