So I had ONE issue of Time left and I read it last week during lunch. I really enjoyed this article about how exercising doesn't really help make you thin.
Basically, exercising won't make you thinner because you:
- Tend to eat more when you exercise since your body needs more energy to replace the calories you burned.
- Tend to eat more thinking you deserve that cookie since you worked out.
- Tend to be less active throughout the day/evening since you had such a hard workout.
So yes, makes sense how you can actually gain/replace weight when you exercise. SO TRUE!!
The cure for this is to be active DURING the day, not just at one big workout. As a teacher I walk, sit, stand, and scream (hehe) all day at my job. When I wear my pedometer, I get close to 10,000 steps by the time I get home. And then I take Sadie for a walk after dinner. I eat healthy generally. I'm good to go:)
I think I'm okay.
But I just wanted YOU to know about this.
Cause I worked out.
