Out of the Blue

I recently picked up a big bucket of sunflower seeds, thinking these would be a healthy snack compared with chips and the like, especially given you probably burn off some of the calories in each seed just extracting it from the shell. While they are certainly indeed healthier than chips, I probably should have looked at the label before deciding, as it would be helpful to note that these things are 75% fat (albeit mostly polyunsaturated), but more significant is that while the nutritional information says a 50 gram bag of nuts "only" has 5% of your RDA of sodium, this is actually if you shell by hand and just eat the nut. If you crack them in your mouth like I do, the salt on the outside increases this almost tenfold, supplying well over 1000mg of sodium, which is 45% of your RDA right there.

I personally like working out, I enjoy it. It is fun. I also enjoy eating.
I wish I did, I never have. I have never gotten the "energy" other people seem to get from regular exercise. Nor do I "feel better" when I have exercised on a regular basis. It's always been something I didn't care to do or enjoy -- and when I did do it, it was just something that took up 1.5 hours a day of my life.

Go to a gym and at a time when they're a lot of hot girls around working out in tight sexy outfits sweating. You will enjoy working out then!

Running's free, so there's no real excuse for *not* exercising. I got myself pretty overweight following a year of surgeries/recovery and eating a lot of incredibly unhealthy food, but unless you're absolutely morbidly obese there's nothing stopping anyone running every day.

I injuries my knee many years back. If I run for more then 2 times a week for longer then 30 minutes I get serious knee pain. What is odd is that racquet ball and tennis for 3+ hours does not cause the problem. So I do a lot of elliptical at the gym and rowing for cardio. Does not hurt my knee.
