Walk a Hound, Lose a Pound: How You and Your Dog Can Lose Weight, Stay Fit, and Have Fun Together (New Directions in the Human-Animal Bond Series)
A dog is an ideal workout partner: always supportive, happy to go for a walk, and never judgmental. When people and dogs exercise together, fitness and health happen on both ends of the leash. As the obesity epidemic spreads, 70 percent of Americans and 50 percent of dogs are overweight or obese, resulting in staggering health care costs and suffering. The causes, consequences, and treatment for the overweight and obese are strikingly similar in people and dogs. Walk a Hound, Lose a Pound, written by an expert veterinary surgeon and leading nurse researcher, helps you move from a food-centered relationship with dogs to an exercise-centered relationship. This volume is designed for dog lovers, dog owners, and families. Based on the latest scientific findings, it will also help professionals (including physicians, veterinarians, and physical therapists) fight obesity and promote fitness in both people and pets. Never has there been a more compelling time for innovative approaches to increasing physical activity, reforming sedentary lifestyles, and enhancing fitness. Walk a Hound, Lose a Pound provides specific strategies for people and dogs to exercise together, lose weight together, and have fun in the process.77% (17)
03.03.09 - BDD-arrfic
Here is the deal with my BDD. It isn’t about how much I weigh, which is incidentally far too much. It isn’t about other people’s perceptions of me it is about my perceptions of myself. The smallest thing can send me spinning off the radar of sanity. On a good day I can shower, brush my hair, brush my teeth and leave the house with only a minor wibble about people seeing me. On a bad day, well, getting out of bed is an achievement in itself, having a shower… out of the question, as I am not worth it. Ditto hair & teeth. As for leaving the house… you have to be joking, I can manage the school run in the car and diving in and out of the car and preschool as fast as possible. On bad days I can’t bear the children touching me, which is difficult as all they want to do is climb all over me. It isn’t going to just disappear, in all likelihood I am going to feel degrees of this for the rest of my life and the CBT is just going to help me manage it. It is not a cure as far as I am aware. Loosing weight may help a little but in all honesty I pin no hopes that it will as I think I will see the flaws even more when not covered in a layer of fat. Then there is the stretched skin to worry about. I am terrified I am going to end up with huge amounts of hanging skin. If it isn’t the big things I look at then it is the small things like the hairs I get under my chin and in the moles on my jaw line, my open pores, my enormous nose, large forehead, stupid small and wide feet…. I could go on but I hope you have the picture by now. It doesn’t really matter that other people don’t see them because I do. I am constantly aware of it. Make up doesn’t help, mostly as I am pretty bad at it but also because I look in the mirror and think “why bother, you aren’t worth the effort”. I feel like I spend my life in the shadows, I want to be invisible or, on really bad days, just disappear. I long not to be me anymore, I yearn for escape. Believe me I long for the day when I can walk with my head up and not look at my feet for fear of confronting an unexpected mirror. From what I know of BDD sufferers it is a very secret thing because they are terrified they are considered vain. This is certainly the case for me, I have suffered from this since puberty… worsening over the years and through certain events but it is only in the last 18 months I have been able to tell anyone about it for fear of being accused of being vain or narcissistic . I haven’t posted or told you this for sympathy. I have told you so that you can try and understand a little. I also want to be honest. This is the reason I don’t comment a lot, that nasty little voice in the back is constantly telling me that no one cares what I think or what my opinions are. It makes me a bad friend as I convince myself that people don’t want to hear from me and that I am the token “pity” friend (what one of those is I am not sure…). It permeates every single aspect of my life and I hate it.Muscles
+1 in comments Brittany has always been well built. And when we switched to raw even though visually she appeared to be loosing weight on the scales she had gained 2 pounds. Yeah. She gained more muscle. I pronounce that "muss cull" by the way. Because I know you were all wondering "how does Erica pronounce that?" Brittany and I currently feel like varying degrees of crap. I feel like I have a new form of the flu. Or I'm hoping anyway. Nothing would be more exciting. I need a cool name to go along with it. But nothing creative is coming to mind. Everyday since Saturday when we got on fall break (we get a full week of school off) I have woken up with a new symptom. Saturday I had a stupid sore throat. Then on Sunday I had the pleasure of waking up with less of a sore throat but the addition of being congested. YAY. Then yesterday I got a cough. And today I am now loosing my voice. BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE. WITH A SMALL FEE OF TRYING TO GET RID OF THE FIRST SYMPTOMS WITH MEDICINE WE'LL THROW IN COUGHING UP MUCUS AND BOOGERS. Well that is so swell. So there's me. Dramamtically groaning. Acting like death is upon me. And then you have Brittany. Who is limping quite badly. Her left back leg. I noticed yesterday she was having issues jumping onto things beds, chairs, etc. Not like she was yelping, but more like she would take lots of half jumps and then when she actually decided to jump she wasn't easily clearing it and most cases was dragging herself on. And today when I let her out to go chase squirrells so she would quit barking at me on her way back to the door I noticed her limping. Like not wanting to put any pressure on her leg limping. She hasn't yelped over it or anything like that leading me to believe that it might be a pulled muscle (since it wasn't so bad yesterday, but after running it is now). And she is still walking and running around (I'm trying not to let her). I was feeling it and it feels a little swollen. I really have no idea what she did to her leg. I'm at my dad's house, so if she goes to the vet I'm paying for it. I go home Thursday. Hopefully she is feeling better soon and won't need a vet visit. But if it seems to be getting worse she'll probably end up going to her favorite place ever (not). Right now she is curled up on a pile of pillows. Bello is sleeping on my lap. And Blitzen is sleeping underneath my foot rest. I need to get some pictures of him. It actually looks like fall here in Illinois. And is cold and wet. So hopefully eventually I get my camera out.
Escape Your Desk Sentence!Similar posts:
Dr. James Levine, one of the country’s top specialists in obesity, says America suffers from “sitting disease.” We spend nearly ten to fifteen hours of our day sitting–in cars, at our desks, and in front of the television. The age of electronics and the Internet has robbed us of the chance to burn up to 1,500 to 2,000 calories per day, leaving Americans less active (and much heavier) than we were thirty years ago. We are facing a human energy crisis.
What you need, according to this doctor’s orders, is to get moving, or nonexercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT). NEAT is as simple as standing, turning, and bending. Research proves that daily NEAT activity burns more calories than a half hour running on the treadmill. Just by the very act of standing and moving, you can boost your metabolism, lower your blood pressure, and increase your mental clarity. It’s about using your body as it was meant to be used. Move a Little, Lose a Lot gives you literal step-by-step instructions for small changes that equal radical results:
• Give at the office–burn 2,100 calories a week just by changing your daily work routine.
• Hey, Einstein–just like the scientist who thought up his most famous theory while riding his bike, you can increase production of new brain neurons in as little as three hours.
• Tired of being tired–reduce fatigue by 65 percent with low-intensity NEAT workouts.
• Don’t forget–an Italian study showed active men and women were 30 percent less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease.
