  • Under 100 kilograms

    4/22/2015 3:06:16 AM, by KGWINDER

    This is like working on a treadmill where you work on rounding off steps to a solid number and then a bit more for a round number on calories burned. I've been working in pounds, but what the heck, how fun to jump on my smartie scale and have it praise me for being under 100 kilograms. So a pound ... Read more

    4/21/2015 12:49:35 PM, by NEPTUNE1939

    They call it a rest day or off day but its really a break from heavy Lifting. On off days you still exercise. I choose to walk 60-min & incorporate isometrics. It's a way to get your Central Nervous System (CNS) in tune with your workouts. What tires a person out is the CNS firing to keep... Read more

    I missed last night and I can tell today. A week ago Saturday, I purchased a jar of local honey. Honey made by bees in my region. I've been reading up on it, and when the bees produce honey from the vegetation in the area, the honey contains a small amount of pollen. Taking a teaspoon of it at... Read more
