Fat fingers are the price you pay for enjoying a walk in warmer weather. Wise walkers remove their rings before going on a longer walk. Otherwise, you may feel like they have turned into tourniquets. When you exercise, you are pumping more blood around your body...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I have yet to come across an article - until now - about the less than pleasant aspects of walking....things that can happen. If you can relate to any of these, know that you are not alone.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I have to admit it is so easy to reach for a protein bar before or after a workout, but these suggestions from Valerie remind me what eating real food does for my body's recovery, not to mention the anti-aging benefits.

"You do NOT have to run to lose weight and keep it off!" I scolded. "You know I never ran a lick to shed 130 pounds – it ain't that hard! I walked it all off - along with cutting white starch and sugar from my diet. I race walked, fitness walked, and walked the dogs everyday, instead. But run?...

The Secret to Eating Carbs

by Kathy Smith

When you munch on a muffin or take a swig of Gatorade, here’s what happens to the carbs that you just put in your mouth; they’re converted into glucose, which is essentially the body’s energy.
