Let me share my fitness story with dear readers. I used to be very fit and athlete, but with the passage of time I became lazy and developed a habit of eating and sleeping along with no exercise. Which deposited around 25 - 30 Kilo of fat into my stomach, face, legs and all over my body?

Everyday when I looked in the mirror I had thought today I will start exercising, which was clearly a false promising to myself, again with the passage of time I realized now enough is enough I have to do something to get rid of this fat.

So I stepped onto the treadmill and started running 40 Minutes everyday at 9 Miles per hour. Right after finishing a marathon every day I then take the free weight and start building my shoulders and biceps, chest and etc.

3 Days continues exercise and 2 days rest which continued over the period of 3 months and I have now lost 22 Kilo of fat and I have started to look young and energetic once again. I recommend everyone who is facing the same symptoms of fatness try to get fit, it is really easy and not difficult at all. Thank you

Thank you for your comment Munda. My story is much the same. In five months, I lost 25 pounds by walking on our treadmill for 20 minutes three times a day: Morning, Noon and Night. My advise is to purchase a good quality treadmill, like the Bowflex above. At first, we bought a cheaper treadmill, then later replaced it with a good one. A good treadmill, starting at about $1,000, makes your walking or running hours much more pleasant and helps you avoid injury.

Nasal Rinse for Sinus Infection

I've had many sinus infections over the years. Hay fever in Omaha and flowering trees are the main culprits. I've tried prescription and over the counter medications. Nothing is really effective at preventing an infection. The high powered medications normally work to stop an infection. In a few cases, they were not effective.

The thing that helps us the most is a salt water nasal rinse with a pinch of bicarbonate of soda to stop the burning sensation. I use an old dish soap dispenser and do my nasal rinse before getting out of the shower. Sue uses a neti pot, before doing her morning exercises. It is best to do your nasal rinse first thing in the morning.

During seasons when we don't have sinus problems, we don't use the rinse. Research indicates that daily nasal rinsing could be bad for you. Do not use a nasal rinse before bed. You don't want to got to bed with water in your sinus cavity. It could be that those who are experiencing infections, while rinsing or using a neti pot daily, are violating this rule.

Rather than buy the expensive individual salt packets from a pharmacy, we mix one pound of fine salt (non-iodized or kosher, if available) with three tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda. We use one teaspoon for about 10 ounces of warm water.
