Walking IS a great first step – pun intended. So, if you’re thinking of starting an exercise program, then yes – get up and go for a walk. Or, if you’ve been walking more than normal during the last year because of business of the pandemic, then now is the time to take that next step.

  • Get Your Protein Through These Veggies

    These Veggies Pack Plenty of Protein When we think about eating enough protein, we usually think about meat, poultry and eggs. But plenty of vegetables are also great sources of protein, and can help us reach our goal. Doctors say most people need 0.8 grams of protein per pound of body weight to keep the muscle they have.

Well, protein keeps us strong so we can maintain our strength for the activities of daily living – like getting up off the toilet, recovering our balance so we don’t fall, and bringing in the groceries, to boil it down to the bare ....

    There’s No Reason to be Intimidated Here Mike is 70 now and has been working out in gyms for years. The former Marine is healthy, happy, and super-enthusiastic about exercise. But it wasn’t always so. The first time Mike walked into a gym, some 30 years ago, he felt intimidated by the people who looked stronger and seemed to know what they were doing. There were so many machines he didn’t know where to start. “I thought, ‘I’m gonna look like an idiot. Everybody’s gonna laugh at me,’” Mike recalls. Does that sound familiar to you? Is that fear of the unknown – or possible “gym-timidation” ....

  • Study Confirms That Regular Activity Helps Us Fight COVID-19

    Study Confirms That Regular Activity Helps Us Fight Covid-19 We’ve been saying it all along. But now it’s good to have scientific proof that regular exercise makes us stronger to fight off viruses like Covid-19. Doctors found that people who had been inactive before contracting the coronavirus were more likely to be hospitalized, require intensive care, and even die, according to research published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine . Even though we kept hearing about aggravating factors like diabetes and high blood pressure, we didn’t hear a lot of urgings about getting regular exercise. So this is welcome news – and one ....
