Daily Exercise Digest Number 3 - Thoughts on I.F.

1 Hour Yoga (F)
10 modified Chin ups (circular, side-to side, slow release)
100 stress-ball squeezes per hand

Thoughts on Intermittent Fasting:
I think it's interesting to talk to people about Fasting - especially on my fast days. Right now in the cubicle next to me are 2 cakes my boss brought in. Carrot Cake and a German Chocolate-type cake. Tempting? Meh. The chocolate one maybe a little, but since I'm allergic to carrots I'm fine without the carrot cake - but really I'm fine with no cake today. People scoff - I recently went to an "Improve Yourself by Making Healthy Choices" Seminar held here at work. One of the things they said was by choosing to eat 3 healthy meals a day, you were going to "age successfully", be healthy etc etc. Sorry but we spend WAY too much time processing food. Food is great. Food is NECESSARY. But NOT in the amount we in the Western World consume it and obsess over it. Sorry.
