The last thing I feel like doing this morning is working out...so yep...that's exactly what I'm going to do, workout...get the blood flowing, oxygenize the blood stream...feed those stiff muscles, flush out and destroy bad toxins by flooding them with oxygen.
I'd rather just sit around and drink wine (just a metaphor)...but I can't...won't.
My personal moral and stamina mean more to me right now...are more of a use to me, than bad health.
As soon as you sit around, and start drinking, your immune begins to suffer, you start getting colds, the flu, strept throat...
The main prevention to all of that is working out...which boosts your immune by making you sweat, and oxygenating your blood stream, like scrubbers that go in and kill off toxins.
Nothing like a good short, yet intense, power workout...short, but constant...where you move from station to station or exercise to exercise...without a break...
Like say treadmill, to curls, to push-ups, to sit-ups, back to treadmill...none stop. And do that like 3-6 times...short and intense...
Cause running or jogging is flat out boring to me, expecially on a treadmill... Running through forest is fun, cause terrain is constantly changing...but just running around a track or treadmill is like torture to me.
I kept in shape while not working...and glad I did...cause I'm in better shape now than when I left...and that makes me feel better...that I didn't let myself go.
My cardio is better, and over all muscle tone and strength is better...as such my energy level at work is higher than usual...that plus vitamins...and no booze as of lately.
All of us might not be able to afford a sports car, but at least we can shape a sports body...later
While everyone else was shopping for food today, I worked out, ran, played sports...
But truthfully, there's not a lot of obese people where I stay...most are slim and trim...maybe cause they're younger and poorer, where I stay...walking a lot on sidewalks, riding bikes ect.
Maybe on the other side of the city there may be more fat folks.
But over here, you don't see a lot of fat folks.
In fact, I rarely see 'Fat America' adds, and TV commentators, and magazines love to say America is full of. I just don't see a whole lot of fat folks walking around...cause I think most are very conscious of weight now days.
But then again...like I said before, a lot of that may have to do cause I live in area of town where most are 30 or below.
Now if I lived in a more effluent part of town, I might start seeing more overweight types...but here I do not.
If anything, most of the females are undersized and petite, do to malnutrition, eating the wrong kinds of food...and the males...the males...just younger and street.
So metabolisms are still high.
But the older you get, the harder it is to stay thin.
The more money you make, the harder it is to stay thin.
I've never been fat...and don't know how it feels to be fat...but have been heavier at times, than I'd like.
Fat people tend to be nicer...at least the ones I run into...at least the males...fat males behave better than thin or sculptured ones...fat males are just more mellow.
Fat females...I don't know.
Again, around here you just don't see a lot of fat obese anything.
I knew a married couple once, and both the male and female were super fat...and as nice as could be...like Mr Mrs Santa Claus.
I still miss them...think they moved to Michigan or something.
Around here, most people, expecially the women, are short and scronny, do to poor diets, poor inner city diets...fast food, milk, and everything else your not suppose to eat...
I force myself to exercise now, when most, including myself, would rather stay in bed, or like after a night of being wild, the next morning the last thing on most peoples mind is a workout, running, jogging...but I've conditioned myself to expect it.
To fight, when you least feel like it...I'm trying to build a frame of thought, attitude, a attitude that maybe will help me survive when things go south.
There's something about having decent health, even when things go south around you, that helps your self esteem.
And other people can see that. If you look sickly, bloated and out of shape, it can even effect someone decision to hire you.
Health and appearance to matter to those who often times decide our long term or short term fate.
Having muscles is way more healthier than being supper thin...I know, I've been both...
I've never been medically thin, nor have I ever been body builder type muscular...but I've become thin enough were all muscle tone goes away, and muscular, or toned enough, to make the cover of a fitness magazine.
And cause I've been at both extremes, I can say with confidence that by far, being muscularly toned is far healthier for your body than being a pole.
As I've said before, muscle is what holds your body together, keeps bones, ligaments, joints, all aligned properly, and from rubbing one another.
The less muscles you have, say in shoulders, the more joint pain you'll experience...or take the knees...
The less muscles you have in knees, the more likely one is to develop knee pain, from knee joints rubbing together.
When legs were thin, no muscle tone, I experienced such discomfort if knees bent below a certain angle, like climbing stairs or something. But as soon as I started jogging, working out again, pain went away.
Everything eventually goes away, went muscles once again properly align your body like a chiropractor does.
I use to think being thin was 'exotic and sexy'...not anymore...now I see that having a muscularly toned frame is much more benefiscal to ones health, and doesn't look bad either.
I've concluded some things about my personal health, based on my own performance and environment.
1. Stress lowers your immune system, being unhappy lowers your immune system.
2. Milk and Dairy products lower your immune system, consuming Milk and dairy products opens you up to all sorts of illnesses you normally wouldn't get, mainly do to the pathogens that fester inside of milk and then go on to infect the human body in a variety of ways as red links show.
3. Working long hours on any job, particularly manual labor jobs, is also bad for health and moral. You never realize how much of a toll it takes on you until Saturday morning when you wake up feeling totally spent and exhausted. With myself, it's not until Sunday morning that I start feeling energized again.
Working long laborious/stressful jobs makes you neglect self throughout the week, you snack on junk food while at work, or working or driving around, neglect working out, cause once you get home, to wore out, dirty, to want to work out or it's to dark and cold.
I'm actually more healthier when not working, cause I eat right, and exercise right, and don't stress.
At work, you're dealing with stress all day long, and of course that varies a lot depending on what it is one does. I can't imagine how those working in frigid cold oil fields in N-Dakota even begin to cope.
To work outside all day in minus degree weather, touching pipes that instantly drain heat out of body, or climbing in and out of trucks, machinery, connecting valves that have frozen ice all in the threads, having to chip or chisel ice away, eating bad junk food all day long while doing this, working 8-14 hour shifts ect, can't imagine the stress that exerts on the mind and body for the ground labor.
A lot of these activities we would not be doing, if not for industry.
So we're in environment, work enviornments, that common sense and nature, our own bodies, would tell us to flee from in order to preserve life, but industry, the need to earn an income, over rides that common sense.
So we hurl ourselves in unnatural enviornments, risk injury and illness, cause everyone needs a pay check.
Some jobs, maybe many, depending on nature of work, are indeed bad for your over all health.
Where as winning the lottery, freeing ones self from slavery, allowing body proper rest, while engaging in activities that bring joy, instead of hazard, I conclude is much better for your health, good day.

I continue to loose weight, even while consuming beer from time to time...which proves that beer, within itself, does not cause weight gain, rather it's all the stuff you eat along with beer, that causes the weight gain.
Drinking beer does not cause you to gain weight unless
1. You don't exercise.
2. You're eating foods with lots of fat and sugar in them, in addition to #1.
And that's basically it, like I said previously once I cut dairy products out of life (98% out), and once I cut way back on sugar in take...the weight loss started occurring naturally....amazing.
I wasn't eating 'sweets' per say, but yet sugar was still sneaking it's way into my life...how?
This is how, sweetened drinks, and not even soda, but other non carbonated sweet drinks that have natural flavoring, and so fool you into thinking somehow it's healthy...
This is why many can't loose weight, cause we're pouring mounds and mounds of sugar down our throats daily!
Sugar, disguised in sweet drinks is the culprit.
Run from the drinks as I did, and you'll start loosing weight more easily.
