Re: The Stairs

I thought I'd try 3 stairs at a time, it's a bit of a stride and have to watch my balance, got to the 9th floor and switched to 2 at a time.

Re: Fitness isn't a Fad

I live in an apartment that has many seniors, and see what bad diet and lack of exercise eventually leads too. This is a shame because our building is walking distance to downtown, nature trails and the village (older part of our town. The trend I see is the small store front gyms that offer persona...

Re: bodyweight revolution

Even on my days off I'll walk 5 mile to Yoga class and generally walk everywhere. I also do a lot of Tai Chi. Live on the 15th floor and will climb the stairs 2 at a time none stop.

Re: Rest

Still working for a builder 3 days a week till when I retire at 65 in November 2017, I exercise on my days off. Intensity depends on what I did at work, Sunday is a good day for that since there's Saturday after Friday to recoup.

What I found also was a soy beverage with only - Ing...

Re: Vegan Challenge

Just to try we bought a frozen vegan pizza that had no allergens, gluten free etc. It was a deluxe type with vegan mock meat which was interesting, not the usual gluten soy stuff but a pea protein mock meat which actually wasn't bad at all. Have tried some vegan breakfast style sausage which was fai...

Re: Vegan Challenge

I have been a vegan fan since 1970 partly because of my Yoga practice, then again around '73 watching the old Kung Fu show with David Carradine. Over the years I've taken stabs at it but this time with so many of my friends being Vegan me and the wife are into it. I know a lot more about nutrition a...
