Archaic Methods Work

I prefer the tried and true aka archaic (via daily prompt)

Call me old-fashioned, that is fine, I am able to do what I want, where and when I want; because, I actually prefer the less modern tools compared to today’s high-speed, fast turnover, updating technological devices. Look around, people are returning to ways of the past with maybe a modern twist.

You are lucky I did not print the photo in black and white; I do not want to startle you too much, leading you to buying a new cell phone only to find later that the image is meant to be black and white. You are welcome. 🙂

A wind up watch, paper and pen, dictionary and other books read by daylight: that puts me in zen mode. No batteries, electric or other man-made power source is needed; so, I am able to think at my own pace without white noise, only the calming effect of nature to inspire me. Look, isn’t this the true green way to do things anyway?

I recycle, use recycled and store up what may have another use later on. Yes, it is true, just ask my husband who must step around all the: “I may need it someday” items. Who doesn’t love finding a beautiful used book at the library for a quarter, to take home as your very own? Junk you call it? Guess what? I fix my “junk” with my “junk.” 🙂

I enjoy modern tech just as much as the next guy; but, I like to fall back on my zen mode items to stay grounded and truly happy. I am able to recognize what my body tells me without the high-tech activity tracker. This is huge for taking care of myself, and you, the best way; especially, since the trackers on your wrist, chest and exercise equipment are for comparative purposes only, not to provide exact hard evidence.

Do what you enjoy; cell phones, computers and trackers have saved lives; but, I am not archaic, I am me. Be who you are and true to yourself; that is when you start reaching the results you want.

Best of health to you and good-bye for now.

Don’t Assume All Obese Overeat

via Daily Prompt: Assumption

People with obesity does not equal overeating.

The basic assumption I hear over and over is that all overweight people overeat. This is not true. Please do not judge a book by its cover; especially, the delicate issue of body image and people who have obesity. I have professional experience as well as personal history to prove the fact that overweight does not equal overeating.

Clients who ask me for help with losing weight actually do not overeat. Sound surprising? Yes, of course, to the untrained layperson. Many other issues and activities of daily life contribute to the obesity epidemic.

For reasons that are confidential as well as controversial, I do not and will not state the reasons for overweight and obesity. The reasons are personal and individual; so, you need to do a consultation to solve your weight issue. I will not cause an uproar or send you in the wrong direction with generalized advice; because,…

the general tips we hear have sent the country spiraling out of control with a simple piece of advice: “…exercise more and eat less.” Grrr. Look what has happened with that advice, a higher rate of people with overweight issues in the United States of America.

Me, personally, that means I would be exercising all day and eating one raisin a day by the time I am eighty years old?! Aaah! Nooo! My weight stabilized instead of dropping when I was in a situation that did not provide sustenance due to our innate survival trait.

Therefore, please, do not ever assume anything about someone you do not know. Look at everyone you see with a caring eye and know that all life deserves to be loved. Smile and help, or smile and walk away, quietly, with a better understanding now that you know the truth: assume nothing.

Thank you, from more than thirty percent of the U.S.A. population, and trainers like me who feel for our fellow-man.

Best of health to you and good-bye for now.
