Our Lady of Weight Loss

Exercise for the Exercise Phobic

ART our lady of weight loss exercise.jpgKICK ’em and TWIST ’em Exercise Tips for Exercise Drop-Outs.
Our Lady of Weight Loss wanted me to share some exercise ideas for those of us who are NOT gym bunnies … some creative ideas to loosen us up, get us movin’ and shakin’. What gets you moving???
1. Pretend your Madonna: Blast the music and dance in your underwear (when no one’s home, of course).
2. Remember the Hula-Hoop? Let’s start it up again! Why not?
3. Hopscotch was the one and only game I could play effectively when I was a kid. Grab some chalk, your kid or your neighbor’s and hit the sidewalks.
4. Walk backwards. Get your friends together and do it in reverse. It works an entirely different set of muscles. And makes you laugh!
5. Twister. Twist away w. your partner and end the night in a heated sweat.

This week’s Weight Loss Art was inspired by an amazing dish of Kimchi (Korean Spicy Cabbage) that I so enjoyed! It’s spicy flavor left me seeing ‘red!’ And FYI … spicy foods are great for voiding a desire for something sweet.

Creative Exercise: Polish Off a Piece of Cake

Want to polish off that piece of cake? Try polishing the dressers instead.
Given the amount of running around I do, I barely have enough time to sleep, much less exercise and/or clean. (Plus, I resist – neither activity is my favorite). How can I squeeze 30 minutes of exercise into my day?
The Mayo Clinic suggests combining housework and exercise. “Make household chores count. Mop the floor, scrub the bathtub or do other housework. The stretching and lifting are good exercise. Work at a fast pace to get your heart pumping.”
Our Lady suggests we add one mammoth helping of music to the Mayo’s ‘housework as exercise’ workout program. As we know (see Top Ten Exercise Tips ), music activates the same feel good center of the brain that food does.
If we could dust, mop, stretch and sweat to the the beat of Motown, we’d burn calories, have a clean house and get our endorphins (those morphine-like substances that our body produces that enhance the immune system, relieve pain, reduce stress, and postpone the aging process) pumping too.
What songs does Our Lady squat, bend, push, pull and lift to? Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” and “Pink Cadillac,” Gwen Stefani’s “Rich Girl,” Outkast’s “The Love Below,” and Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.”
Tasty Tidbit: Housework as exercise is not a new concept. In October, 1901, Good Housekeeping published an article entitled “Housework as Exercise.” The author was an un-named teacher of physical culture. Her message was to . . . . “Unbutton those tight collars, take off the corsets and petticoats, hike up those long skirts and pull the blinds. Whenever possible wear a gymnasium suit for scrubbing and sweeping.”

Bush Tortures Detainees: 1,000 Calorie Diet Plan

As stated in the New York Times and The Huffington Post, President Bush turned to Slim Fast and Jenny Craig to rationalize the use of dietary manipulation on detainees.
From The Huffington Post:
In a footnote to a May 10, 2005, memorandum from the Office of Legal Council, the Bush attorney general’s office argued that restricting the caloric intake of terrorist suspects to 1000 calories a day was medically safe because people in the United States were dieting along those lines voluntarily.
“While detainees subject to dietary manipulation are obviously situated differently from individuals who voluntarily engage in commercial weight-loss programs, we note that widely available commercial weight-loss programs in the United States employ diets of 1000 kcal/day for sustain periods of weeks or longer without requiring medical supervision,” read the footnote. “While we do not equate commercial weight loss programs and this interrogation technique, the fact that these calorie levels are used in the weight-loss programs, in our view, is instructive in evaluating the medical safety of the interrogation technique.”

What, my friends, does that say about America’s obsession with diets, and about those who choose to ‘torture’ themselves by striving to follow a 1,000 calorie per day plan? Is your diet plan torture?
Food for thought.
Go Healthy! Please.
