    We should all strive to be healthy.

    Both physically and mentally. They do go hand in hand. If something is getting to me, instead of reaching for something to eat, I workout. I guess nothing gets to me because I need to lose some weight!! HAHAHA!!

    Anyone know of some good ab exercises

    that don't involve strain or bending of the back? So far all I can think of are planks and leg lifts.

    I recently gained quite a bit of wait around my

    waist. I used to be thinner and tighter, but now I look noticeably different. I'm not fat, but I'm not as thin as I used to be. And I'm not in very good shape, but I've just started working out and hope to burn this off and get stronger too.

    If you sit for long periods of time regularly

    no matter what size you are, you can possibly develop heart disease over time, if you don't exercise much. Exercise strengthens the heart and helps it maintain a nice normal beat. :) that's my advice for today.

    But with the sales pitches And dr oz scandal.

    Who to trust grows painful. Research times were cut. From 15 to seven years. Reports are falsified. Naturals dont need research times. No wonder we have so many broken. The wealthy wrecked everything. After buying it all.

    Since I stopped drinking beer,

    soda and eating tomato based sauces, my heartburn has been almost nonexistent. Today I ate a fish and linguini with tomato basil sauce. Now, I've got the red hot burps. Looks like I'm going to have to hit the ACV when I get home. Why don't I ever learn?

    Put bananas in the freezer,

    and once they are frozen put them in a food blender and add just a little bit of water, it makes a really tasty ice cream actually. You could add some berries to give it more flavor as well. Really, to me this is delicous. ^-^

    I haven't been in the best shape,

    but I think that my brute strength came from eating too much. My metabolism is a little high, so maybe that has something to do with it? What do you think?
