Diet Exercise Plan Weight Loss

Diet with an exercise plan brings weight loss.

Doesn't it?

I want to tell you how it is working for me.

Firstly, I'm "old". Yup, a senior.

Having grown up in ballet, aging started at about 28 years old. I know, awful right?

Yet before I got pregnant at 37, I weighed 105 pounds. My mom called me "the skull".

But wow did that pregnancy ever change everything. Yet in spite of it, I got pretty thin afterwards.

Fast forward to menopause...and many health challenges...and gaining weight.

I have tried so many things!

Now, at a desk job (sitting is the new stroke - are you as tired of hearing that as I am?) and writing in my own time, what on earth can work?

Recently I read Dr. Mercola's book "Effortless Healing" and learned about the intermittent fasting, eating your meals within 8 hours a day. Not hard to do.

And I pulled out a DVD, a Classical Stretch DVD by Miranda Esmonde White a school mate of mine. I have a few!

O.K., so shameless bragging - for an old lady who  sits on a chair all day.

Two weeks ago I started the intermittent fasting. And added in the Classical Stretch workout three times a week. Insulin resistant me - yes moi!

Over the first four days I lost five  - that is 5 - pounds!

I know that you and I, already know there is no good diet plan without exercise.

And no good exercise plan without diet - right?

I may have found the winning combination! Seriously, if you're frustrated with exercise and losing weight - try it!

"Effortless Healing" by Dr. Joseph Mercola covers a lot of health information.

And DVD's by Classical Stretch and Essentrics (mom and daughter development) will not let you down.

Need A Muscle Roller Stick - Check Amazon

The Handy Muscle Roller Stick

 Elite Sportz Muscle Roller Stick

There are many reasons why a muscle roller stick is in the equipment bag or cubby for those of us who love to do fitness stretching workouts.

A muscle massage stick is like a self-application of myofascial release physical therapy. I talk about myofascia more in this blog post.

The Elite Sportz Equipment stick is backed up by the company's money back guarantee.

Reviews are very positive about this particular muscle massage tool. Both athletes and casual exercisers use it both before and after workouts.

Use of this roller helps loosen up tight muscles and increases circulation before a workout. Use it before your regular warm up, your golf stretching exercises, your shoulder workout routine or your stretching to get a higher arabesque!

This massage roller stick can be used to enhance muscle recovery after a workout, golf game, or ballet class. You can get rid of accumulated muscle tension fast.

Here's a short video demonstrating how easy it is to use the Elite Sportz muscle roller stick on Amazon.

I use it on my upper back too - held behind me, rolling it back and forth between the spine and shoulders.
 It can be used easily, sitting, legs bent, on the calves and hamstrings. I think this muscle roller stick is a good buy!
