  1. Ready... Stretch ... Garden!

    Spring is springing and it's time to go play in the dirt, right? Not so fast, Marge. Gardening and lawn work will help you find muscles you didn't know you had if you're not physically ready for it. Especially if your winter routine didn't include a lot of bending, reaching and kneeling.

  4. How Does this Low Carb Thing Work, Anyway?

    I argue with my mom about this all the time.  She insists that the only way to lose weight is to expend more calories than you eat.  I tell her that there is an insulin component in there that regulates the way your body stores and uses fats and sugars.  If you know how your body works, you can use that to your advantage if you want to lose a few pounds here and there.  I am not advocating anything like the Adkins diet, although it works very well.  It just seems so unhealthy to eat so much fat and protein in whatever quantities you want.  That is the hook, though.  I like to eat a modified low-sugar diet complete with high complex carbs that break down slowly and don't cause a big blood sugar rush.  When I want to lose weight faster, or get it "going", I cut back on the carbs.  There are plenty of books and resources out there about how to do this safely, and plenty of reasons not to do it at all if you don't know what you're doing, but here's a quick synopsis of how it works.
