ExerciseAccording to this article, it’s going to take me twice a long to lose this weight … assuming I ever get to the “diet & exerice” point in my life. (That’s really not likely.)

If you’ve ever calculated how much weight you’ll lose by cutting out a certain number of calories a day, you know the most famous equation in dieting: 1 pound of fat = 3,500 calories. Too bad that equation is wrong.

Morning Exercises Perk Up Your Day

RunningIf you’re like me, exercising in the morning is the first thing that gets cut from your routine. But that’s a mistake, I’ve been told often. Exercising first thing in the morning helps set your day on the right path. It helps makes you more energetic throughout the day and (for some) it makes you more productive.

It doesn’t have to be something fancy. All you have to do is take a walk or go on a run. Yes, it can be that simple.

Of course, you can always try jumping jacks too.
