Exercise Is Good for You But…

I’ve lost 22 pounds since Christmas. How? I really don’t know. (kidding) I think a lot of it has to do with being a little bit more physically active and not eating as much as I used to. Especially now that football season is over. For those 17 weeks plus the playoffs, I stand behind my bar in my basement feeding my face while watching the games.


It’s not that I’m working out or anything. I would like to start working out; I just have to fit the time into my day. I have been seeing studies about exercises and the effect they have.


According to a new study from Iowa State University says that every hour you run adds seven hours to your life. They say even jogging slowly has the same affect. You max out at around 3 years being added. And according to CNN, a survey out of the University of California, San Francisco found that walking just 22 minutes a day will allow you to eat saturated fats like cheese and butter because it offsets your risk of developing heart disease.


Now I wouldn’t start eating pounds of butter with each meal because of these surveys but maybe fat isn’t as bad as it’s been made out to be.


Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to have a huge grill cheese sandwich for lunch with a side of fries.


Maybe I should walk for 22 minutes first.
