After my question last week, I wanted to give you some more thoughts about walking.
What's our most natural and oldest mode of transportation?
That's right. WALKING. We've been doing it forever, and guess what? Over the last 50 years, as a whole we really don't do it anymore. We walk from our car to work or to the grocery store, usually with the added stress of having driven around for 10 minutes trying to find the closest spot. I love how silly we truly are ;-)
Walking has numerous benefits. It relaxes the central nervous system, it "un-winds" our spine, and improves circulation to our extremities, just to name a few.
Now there are two ways of walking. You can take a leisurely stroll, or you can walk because you have to "get somewhere". The latter is in my opinion of prime importance to your well being.
So important that you should aim to walk at least one hour every day. I wish I could send you to some links of in depth studies to back up my little post here, but this comes purely from my own experiences and observations . So if you are not walking all ready, get outside and try it. I think you will be amazed what happens after just a few weeks of it.
You know what? This NOT real food.
It's a "franken food" (told you I love that word)
This little 3 ounce bag holds 3 servings. For a total calorie count of about 500. Would you believe it also has MSG in it?
It was handed out in a goodie bag at a golf tournament I went to, and at least three people made the comment to me; "hey Marc, you can have mine, this is the healthy shit you eat".
I politely declined, as I watched everyone scarf down muffins and pastries for the continental breakfast, I was happy that I all ready ate. What did I eat? Some left over strips of rib eye and a few grapes on the car ride there.
