Active wear

I received a newsletter from an online shopping company this morning and they were offering a new line of active wear. The offer is so tempting that I would like to try some of the products including the sports bra, activity trackers, and perhaps a new pair of rubber shoes. A different newsletter carries musical instruments including presonus firebox. This probably got the interest of music enthusiast. I, on the other hand is curious about the fitness and health stuff. I’m planning to start a physical activity program this year to get back into shape after my surgery last year. I would most likely start with walking.

Music and exercise

An old friend of mine is convincing me to start walking as form of exercise. Walking has helped her to lose some pound. She said that she was able to stand walking for several minutes by listening to music from her cellphone. She started downloading music, including sounds of bugera 333xl and play them repeatedly while walking. She said her type of music gets her in the mood to exercise.

Yoga position to facilitate digestion and elimination

Do you have problem with digestion or elimination? I guess this yoga position called spine twist will help you solve your digestion and elimination problem.

This is how you do it. Lie on your back with your arms out to the sides at shoulder height and your legs extended. Then, bend and lift your right knee toward your chest, keeping your left leg on the floor and turn your head to the side so you’re gazing over your right shoulder. After this, slowly lower your right knee across your body to the left (you can place your left hand on it for a deeper stretch or to help hold it in position). Hold for several breaths, relaxing knee toward the floor as far as possible. Switch sides and repeat. (Steps and photo credits: ivillage.com.)

I hope this yoga position could also help those in dire need of losing weight. If there are effective yoga positions that could actually help one to shed unwanted pounds, then no one will go gaga over artificial means.

Do you know of yoga positions that can help you lose weight?
