Saturday Sweat - Walking

Jul 15, 2019 - Improve your cardio fitness and lose weight. A 6 week walking program using normal and brisk walking pace intervals. Free printable fitness planner.#fitness


Do you know how many "walk to lose weight" programs are out there? When I first started I was aware that walking was one of the easiest ways to get toned and lose a few pounds. I just didn't know how many sites there were about this subject or how many different variations of it there were. I've tried a few but I find it difficult to keep going when the weather gets too hot or too cold which means there are about 26 weeks when I don't walk regularly outside.

Yeah I know outside is not the only place to walk but everything else just is boring. I've got a perfect indoor track in my building including several sets of stairs for the uncomfortable days but takes planning and I seldom plan anything. No plan ever stays the same after first encounter, it just doesn't so planning in depth is a waste of time IMO. Make sure there is someplace to sleep & somewhere to eat on your route and then go. That's about the extent of the planning I do.

Unfortunately for me my daughter and the professor are both "plan it to death" people so I find myself doing it too. I struggle against them but they are two to my one so eventually, I just go with the flow and pick up the pieces afterwards. That puts me in a bit of a bind when I need to plan something like regular exercise so usually, I do it 5-10 times then stop or I'll do it a couple of times in a week then take a week off because my body is complaining.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing.

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
