May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
What a cute doggie, Lilie Smile

Love comes in many forms and shapes
and it is healing for the body and the soul.

...Listen human lovers

When did you last keep a vigil
Beseeching light?

When did you last fast, lose twenty pounds
In hopes of embracing God?

Hafiz will give you the unedited news today:
You will need to outdo all the noble acts
Of dog's love.

`From Dog's Love

I have been having my coffee and looking at this thread now for quite a while.
It is really beautiful.

As far as the exercise goes, I think I will stick to my chair Big GrinActually, I am not all that bad, I go swimming 3 times a week, but not today.
I have one friend who is leaving for an exercise class in an hour, and it is Sunday!!!
Well, like Sue said, 'it takes all kinds to make a world.'

All said,I really do like this thread.
Keep going everyone.

Hi Girls Wave2

Everyone has been really good about exercising CoolDance, so now that the weekend is slowly approaching we can all to a little less challenging things. UFO

I think I will glide around the world with this:

O silent lover, seeker of the higher planes,
may the Beloved always be with you

Hi fellow exercisers.
Thought I would let you know about a new motivational strategy I discovered for my walking exercise. Here in Berkeley, there is a BART metro train station just below the huge campus. A month ago I happened to be passing about 8:45 in the morning when out of the depths of the station came about a hundred students. Ahead lay the campus, a mile and a half of uphill campus. For some reason I fell in with the students. There were all variety of paces to chose from. I settled behind this fast guy. It turned out he went all the way to the top of campus. Boy! Did he give me a workout. I think he was late to class.
Anyway, thought I would pass along this idea of joining in with the flow and having company rushing to class at whatever university is your preference.
Berries are loaded with fiber, which helps you feel full (and eat less). Berries top the charts in antioxidant power, protecting your body against inflammation and free radicals, molecules that can damage cells and organs. One study even showed that one-half to one cup of mixed berries a day improved cognition and motor performance in animals. James Joseph, PhD, director of the Neuroscience Lab at the United States Department of Agriculture Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University, Boston, which conducted the study, notes that we become more susceptible to the damaging effects of free radicals and inflammation as we age. Berries help prevent those effects by turning off the inflammation signals triggered by cytokines and COX-2s, he says, making them an ideal part of your diet.

This information comes from the Mayo Clinic:

Top 10 Health Foods

The Mayo Clinic developed five criteria for health foods:
High in nutrients vitamins, fiber and minerals
High in antioxidants and phytonutrients such as beta carotene and Vitamins A and E
Foods believed to reduce the risk of health conditions
Low calorie density
Readily available

For anyone wanting to eat healthy and prevent disease, Mayo believes including these 10 foods in our diets is our best bet: almonds, apples, blueberries, broccoli, red beans, salmon, spinach, sweet potatoes, vegetable juice and wheat germ.

Eat Your Spinach

Japanese scientists tell us that Popeye had it right all along. By eating our spinach we can knock out the "Blutos" within our environment who would do us harm. They found that the glyconutrients in spinach inhibited the growth of tumors and cancer cells as well as protecting against DNA destruction. Their findings were replicated by studies at Harvard and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
The American Cancer Society recommends a broad range of plant-based foods including fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans.
The Cancer Cure Foundation studies "alternative and integrative therapies" for preventing and curing cancer. They recommend a varied diet, including avocados, broccoli, carrots, hot peppers, figs, ground flax, garlic, grapefruit, red grapes, green and yellow leafy vegetables, kale, licorice root, mushrooms, oranges, raspberries, rosemary, green and black tea, tomatoes and turmeric.

Color Me Healthy

Color Me Healthy

Dr. Mack Ruffin, from the University of Michigan's Comprehensive Cancer Center, tells us to look to color as a means of boosting our intake of foods that may protect us from cancer. His recommendation is to eat foods naturally rich in color, such as spinach, broccoli, carrots, blueberries and strawberries. Canned and frozen foods are fine, but we should stay away from processed foods.
