The real and online worlds are full of weight loss tips. Sadly lots of these are tied to food and weight loss myths. Here are 5 ideas that you can safely ignore
Really important stuff happens when we sleep. This is when our bodies “download” the benefits of any exercise, repair tissue damage and fend off illness.
While exercise makes our bodies look great, there’s also a less obvious benefit: a beauty boost. How active you are directly affects your complexion and hair.
Of course muscle doesn't actually weight more. However, muscle is denser than fat so don't be concerned if the scales are rising as you exercise more.
To throw the cat in amongst the pigeons, I have never ever wiped after I've used the gym (maybe I don't work out hard enough) and I have never ever caught a bug (as far as I know) from the gym.
I worry about this as I am naturally 'big boned and quite a muscular frame so always come out as quite heavy, but am very slim, so you really have to take into consideration your body frame too.
'get your hussle on' - love it. A tactful way of saying that I really need to get moving more, and you're quite right!
If I saw someone wiping down equipment with disposable wipes I think I would go and offer them my towel to make it easier anyway (plus obvious environmental reasons!)
If you take up yoga you will become much more aware of your posture and this is enough to make you notice when you're slouching. It doesn't have to be yoga, maybe pilates or something similar might do the same thing, but I always notice if I'm slouching when using my phone and I think it's my awareness of good posture that does it.
My solution is to set a tracker to alert me to how much time I'm spending on my phone. The shock of that alone was enough to stop me picking it up to check things all the time.
part of the problem is that phones are getting bigger again! How we laughed at the 90s movies with people carrying 'carphones' the size of a brick; but if we're not careful we will be back there!
I think I've got some clingfilm in a drawer - but I now use the boxes and it is so much easier as well as less wasteful. I'm batch cooking about once a week now, makes a big difference after a long day when dinner is ready to reheat.
I've always had supper around 9pm throughout my life and never had any issues. I eat at 5pm with the kids so just get hungry again. I can't underestand how people can manage to last until 8pm for their evening meal after eating lunch at 1.
I would also say that we although plastic bag use has plummeted, we should really follow the example of other places such as New York which have officially banned all plastic bags. There is no need for it. If you forget to take a bag, you'll remember next time!
as Michael says - most of us won't want to give up our hard-earned trip to somewhere warm (especially given the weather today!). But I think these small changes do make a difference when 70 million people get behind these ideas. Plastic bag use has plummeted - we can do this!
we should be avoiding wipes due to eco concerns; and certainly not flushing them, London's sewers are suffering! I imagine a mat is quite hard to sterilise, but I was always told the key thing is hand washing. Do that before eating or touching eyes/face and the bugs won't get in.
Still using up the last of clingfilm i bought last year. I shan't ever buy any more.
I have never seen anyone take any antiseptic wipes to the gym and I think over-sanitising the gym is an impossible and pinntlss task Saying that, I don''t want to sit in a pool of someone else's sweat, so definitely take a towel and do the decent thing if needed.
Blimey, I'd never realised there were so many germs! Saying that, they're probably every public area we go. And it does all coming down to washing your hands. Problem solved.
Most people find it easy to eat leftovers and use reuseable bags. But when it comes to flying less and driving less - things that really limit lives - I really don't think people are going to embrace this so much.
love it - eco ideas that really work without a lecture! I do enjoy a trip to the pound-shop style places (you know the ones, with all the containers outside on the pavement) so I'll be getting a few long-lasting bags and boxes.
Am I unusual in not even having a gym bag? I just carry a water bottle and take my headphone and phone in with me. That's all I need. I shower at home by the way, so maybe that makes a difference1
nothing wrong with a carrier bag - saves a lot of cash for more interesting stuff! Let's set a new fashion!
having lost my previous gym bag , my current is a strong carrier bag! Reuseable, waterproof, and has a nice picture of fruit on it! Perfectly adequate for the purpose!
I like the idea that even mice get bad cheese dreams! Going to bed on a full stomach certainly isn't comfortable. However our Mediterranean friends eat at 11pm and don't seem to get overweight on it. They probably aren't eating kiosk nasties, though.
I was training for a triathlon and so bought a couple of monthly+ passes to get me into shape and not have working away in London for a few days as an excuse to not go to the gym.
I would say that a few one-day passes was one of the best gifts I got when I first had a baby. I didn't use it for months, but when I had some time to escape it was great to do something just for me.
