In reality, you don't need a gym. Heck, you don't even need weights. I had a male friend who used his body (and random poles and bars in parks) to get buff. I'm sure slimming down would be easier.

Just gotta look into it.

Pretty much...

Any activity which needs some form of high physical effort, will get you swoll.
Rule 1: No pooftas. Rule 2: No maltreating the theists, IF, anyone is watching. Rule 3: No pooftas. Rule 4: I do not want to see anyone NOT drinking after light out. Rule 5: No pooftas. Rule 6: There is NO...rule 6.

Yup, very true! Power walking is something I'm doing in the meantime! :)

^^^Walking is the best exercise there is, for most people. It is free, low impact and depending on how fast you go, aerobic. That is my main exercise currently.  I don't walk fast due to arthritis, but I do walk at least a half hour every day, and on weekends up to an hour.

Human beings evolved to walk long distances at a medium pace, like many miles a day. Following animals, gathering food, carrying kids, carrying other things. Our brains even work better when we walk (or do other physical activity.)

Now that we sit or stand in one place for hours instead, we are really outta shape! And maybe even getting dumber.... :?

I have been walking a lot more in the last couple of weeks.  My house is being re-sided and the workers have taken over my back yard.  Therefore I am walking my dog after each meal and before bed instead of letting him go out in the yard.  Mind you I am only walking at a Chihuahua's pace but at least I'm moving.
It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.

Bicycle appears to be a simple and effective fitness option.

2. What if there is a rock in the middle of a road, a blind person is speeding towards it, ...they say that they can't see it.   Would you recommend him to keep speeding?

Sorry to hear about the arthritis nogods. Sounds to me like you still do pretty well on the exercise front considering!

Hadn't heard of there being a link between lack of exercise and decreased intelligence before! :o

Does that have anything to do with decreased blood flow to the brain out of interest? Or is there a different reason for this?

Basically. Increased blood flow and more oxygen equals increased energy for that brain. People forget that the brain uses 20% of the body's energy even though it is only 2% of the person's weight. An energy sink, using 10 times as much energy as the rest of the body by weight.

That is one reason why studying and other brain work makes you tired, but watching tv for the same amount of time does not! [1]

Dunno, I don't own a television but when I watch one I feel very tired and drained. I think regular TV watchers are desensitised to the extreme sensory overload, they don't notice the constant onslaught designed by advanced specialists to get messages into your brain.

I can't handle it...too much, too in yr face.

I can feel that way after watching tv also (after long periods).

Definitely comes on faster for me, after doing things like studying/learning anything new that involves a lot of thought/concentration though!

Don't know about giving it away, but thinking cutting down on how much time I put into tv watching is definitely a good idea. Need to cut down even more with internet usage really - have much more of a problem with this!

I hear you! I actually go for weeks without turning on the TV, but still end up with way too little time in my day because I waste to much of it online.

Glad to know I'm not the only one lol!

I know, for me, it has a lot to do with being very isolated from others and not finding this a simple straightforward thing to overcome in my offline life because of psychological health problems. Still, I could be/really need to be trying much harder to tackle this problem than I have done so far. Using the internet to excess, as a long term means to avoid doing so[1], is no good or healthy thing! :(

Just wanted to drop in and say hello.  I've been really busy IRL.  Sounds like everybody is doing well.  I hoping by next week we'll have our work done.  Helping my son move and unpack, mostly watching my precious grandson and lots of PJ Mask!  Catboy!!!  I'm Owelette, BTW.  Fun, fun, fun.

I took him, to the pool yesterday.  I have not been to the pool since my son was a teen.  It was nostalgic and fun.  My baby loved it.  I love summer.  So many things to do outside.

Everybody take care. 

Saving the best for last, WELCOME BACK NAM!!!

Good for you Junebug, glad to hear that and good luck with helping your son out! Going to be moving soon myself coincidentally enough!  :) In my case, it won't be very far from where I am now - but still anticipating it's going to involve a fair bit of work. Am sure I'm going to be pretty busy myself for at least a few days when things go ahead!

Moving is a pain, but it's a lot of fun too. It's a lot of work but in the end it's worth it. My husband and I are considering moving back to Los Angeles, which would be a cross-country trip (we're currently living in NY). If we go through with it it would be completely different than our first move because we have far more possessions this time, as well as a 3 year old daughter.

If we go through with it it would be completely different than our first move because we have far more possessions this time, as well as a 3 year old daughter.

I know where you're coming from regarding possessions. The first time my boyfriend moved, he started out with nothing in a repossessed flat containing hardly anything. It was weeks before we had the place straight because of that. When he moved to his second place things were easier because he didn't have to start from scratch.

Now that I'm soon moving in full time with him, though, it's going to be somewhat complicated for me deciding what to take with me, what to leave at my parents and what to throw away before even starting the process of moving! Still, at least it's just my stuff I need to worry about at this point which will involve a fair bit less organising than if we were both moving into this place at the same time! Am also sure it will be pretty exciting too!  :)

Good luck with your move, hope all goes well!
