With any exercise, when you are just starting out you have to be simple and build a base. As, you get stronger, you have to increase the intensity for so many reasons. Shorter, more intense workouts can have greater benefits to the heart as well as increased caloric burn! Check out the video from DR BERG DC to find out some of those.
Are you getting ready for a workout and want something that won’t fill you up but give you energy? There are plenty of choices for that! Check out the video from BESTIE for some ideas!
With social media, we see all the time the intense workouts people put themselves through. I think it is amazing some of the accomplishments that individuals have done! The reality is there are many that simply don’t want to “push to the limit”, and that is ok. Walking is something almost everyone can do and it gives so many health benefits! Check out the video from BRIGHT SIDE to find out the benefits of walking!
I have read several times from various “health experts” (one you all know) that this health crisis, and taking the vaccine, is just like polio and small pox and if we had the push back then as we do now, well, these things would not be gone. My question is, is it really the same? And why do we allow these experts to get away with the comparison without simple questions?
As with so many interviews, it all depends on who is asking the questions. At one time, journalist were inquisitive and wanted to get to the truth. From Christina Laila, of The Gateway Pundit, Dr Fauci is interviewed by CNNs Jim Acosta and makes the claim:
“If you look at the extraordinary historic success in eradicating small pox, and eliminating polio from most of the world, and we’re on the brink of eradicating polio. If we had had the pushback for vaccines the way we are seeing on certain media, I don’t think it would have been possible at all to not only eradicate small pox, we probably would still have small pox, we would probably still have polio in this country.“
Now, I’m not a doctor, nor am I an extraordinary journalist. I freely admit that. I am a simple guy who just wants to get the facts straight while having a salad and going for a walk. That being said, I would have followed up with some questions.
- Were we suppose to be getting a booster on a yearly basis for small pox and polio? If so, I have missed them for the past 50 plus years.
- Has there been a variant for both of the above that I am not aware of?
- How much testing did those vaccines go through before being used widespread?
- If we were to go back in time to when they started using the polio vaccine, what was said about it?
- Are we comparing apples to apples?
- Speaking of apples, should we be eating healthier and exercising more? Would this help us fight off viruses?
- Why are you not recommending that as much as wearing a mask and getting vaccinated?
Is there a lot of bad information out there? Absolutely, but to act as if it is all coming from one side is absurd. My problem is that there isn’t nearly enough focus on a healthy lifestyle. Let me clarify that. THERE ISN’T ANY FOCUS ON A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE! There has not been one time, in any press conference, that a “leader” has mentioned that we need to do better for ourselves. Everything is around getting a shot and wearing a mask. This is unacceptable as there is plenty of research showing a diet rich in whole food and getting minimal exercise can help our immune system, and isn’t this what it is all about?

Sleep is so very important for our health yet so many have a hard time falling asleep. Before you reach for that sleep aid, there are many things we can do naturally to get a good nights sleep. Check out the video from BESTIE for ideas!
I can’t stand all the virtue signaling that goes on. So many people hate wearing a mask but are doing it for others. That’s how much they care! And they are getting the shot to protect those around them. Enough already!!
I dove into fitness at a fairly young age for pure vanity. I was skinny and wanted to get some muscle to impress the ladies, so I started lifting weights. You’re welcome ladies!! As the years have gone by, my reasons for exercise have changed and my diet has changed drastically. Sure, I still want to keep excess weight off and keeping some muscle tone is important to me, especially in the summer. However, I like the way I feel when I finish a walk or jog. Swimming laps does wonders for my back and shoulders. When I have a chance to get on my bike, there is nothing better for my legs and cardio. Add to this my change in diet, which has so many fruits and vegetables. I have much more energy along with keeping my weight under control. And the health benefits from this way of life is incredible!
I could very easily make a case that I am doing this for everyone around me. The biggest argument would be that I’m doing my part to stay healthy and keep the cost of healthcare down. Sure, there is no guarantee, but taking healthy measures on a daily basis certainly puts me in a better position to fight off disease. I COULD say that, but I won’t. To be honest, I’m not thinking about anyone else but me when I am doing all these things. Yes, I post to social media when I’m at a park in the hopes of motivating others to get active. There are so many beautiful parks out there to visit! And I know that if more people would implement walking and a small change in diet, they could fight off viruses better. And I have this blog, #eatthedamnsalad, where you can see how different foods affect your health. However, I have never been mad at anyone for not doing what I do.
If you feel safer for you when you wear a mask, have at it! You want to get the vaccine to protect yourself from a virus? More power to you! Again, if you feel safer go for it. Just don’t tell me you are doing it for my benefit. Yeah, there may be specific reasons to wear a mask when you are around someone with health issues but that would be using common sense. Just quit the virtue signaling!
Until next time…#eatthedamnsalad
