|« The Bible and the Blood Type Diet #2||GERD remedies »|
I did not blog much about exercise over the holidays, but that does not mean I neglected it. When I first read that Type Os thrive on "intense physical exercise" it explained so many things about me. (I've blogged about that adventure on previous occasions.) Weight control, muscle tone, cardio vascular health - those are all good reasons to exercise, but I exercise because it makes me feel better. I have more energy and less stress; more enthusiasm and fewer moods when I exercise like a Type O.
There were two weeks right at the end of the semester that were so busy I just ran out of time. However once school was out, I got in 30 - 40 minutes of Type O exercise 6 days a week. Especially when we were traveling, I made sure I ran or climbed stairs or walked briskly. I felt like exercise was especially important because my ratio of beneficials, neutrals, and avoids was not as ideal as it is at home.
Today I swam at the local high school pool. The pool is reserved for students early in the morning and after school. But in the middle of the day anyone can swim for as long as they want to for $3.00. For those committed to exercise (as we Type Os ought to be) they have a $40 card that is good for 20 swims.
I don't have to count repetitions when I swim, like I do when I work with weights. It's just all-out back and forth for 30 - 40 minutes. So it is a good time to think. I make lots of lessons plans and solve lots of problems as I swim back and forth.
Today there was a bonus. My favorite health food market is between my house and the pool. I stopped to pick up a few favorites to send with my son when he goes back to college and saw a sign that all supplements were 25% off. This is good! I stocked up on calcium, magnesium, bladderwrack, soy protein, egg white protein, brewer's yeast, and other items we use frequently.
