I take one Sunday every month to discuss health topic for writers. I thought I had found the best possible diet when I stopped eating beef and pork. It did work for a while, but I still need to get a handle on carbs. I thought I was keeping myself in good shape by walking every day. Sure, it helps, but it’s not gonna let me drop the pounds I need to shed. Continue reading “In the Swim”
The older I get, the more muscle tone I lose. At the same time, my memory is like a steel trap, rusted shut. And I absolutely have a limited amount of time to get my books and stories written. So you would think, wouldn’t you, that I would make healthy living a top priority. Totally the sane way to go during my sunset years. Continue reading “Flabby Body, Flabby Brain”
We are not talking about what you eat here. I’m talking about how. Those people are out there that forget to eat for a whole day. Food is not their focus, not their reason for living, and not the least the one thing they plan out every morning. Thin eaters are living their lives and eating to live.

Personally, I never seem to have positive things to say about my own weight loss. I try things, I walk every day and avoid things that are “bad” for me. Mostly, nothing changes. I firmly believe that there is something I can do easily to improve my health and weight. That’s the key to my choices. I must have chocolate. I must have ice cream. I must have coffee.

The Universe seems to hate people who have weight problems. Whether your ancestors came from cold regions where keeping extra weight on meant you would live through the winter or from extremely hot regions where you walked and danced and hunted daily so fat never had a chance, here we all are in the modern world and those genes are about to kill us all. But cheer up! Here are some fun things to keep you healthier.
Sleep is tied to so much about our health and well being that you could actually lose weight by getting another hour or two shut-eye each night. The old Ben Franklin quote, Early to Bed, Early to Rise is not far off, but no electric lights or cell phones existed when he said that so there wasn’t much else to do. And if you were unmarried, chances were there really wasn’t anything else to do. Continue reading “Healthy, Wealthy, Wise”
