Proverbs 16:24Pleasant words are like a honeycomb,
Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.
One of the lessons I heard and learned at Canyon Ranch this past week was about "myths in weight loss"
What did intrigue me was the old problem ALL women talk about "metabolism". It's true. When your body gets to a certain place in life the metabolism adjust to what your doing and you have difficulty losing weight.
I learned that working on the Large muscle groups (exercise) is the best way to pump up the metabolism when trying to lose weight.
I went to one of the trainer's and asked what can I do without having weights at home. I was told
Push ups (women's) will work 3 large muscle groups: Shoulders, back and Chest
Squats will work the large muscle group: legs.
I need to do 10-12 reps TWICE to accomplish the best benefit for my body.
YIKES, I could barely do 3 push ups and the next two days.... OWWW my rib cage and arms are sore.
What a wake up call! I'm not in very good health (strength) if I can't do these a few push ups and squats without disabling my body!
