  1. Yes, it's 70 here. It looks as if the CDC recommended 60. So opinions seem to vary.
  2. I had chicken pox as a child. I'll get the shingles vaccine when I reach the recommended age.
  3. I'm sorry you are in such pain. I think the latest research suggests that more steps causes joints to be stronger rather than the opposite. This is about running
  4. Just a quick note on connections. It's important to check baggage allowance, both size and weight, if you have a change of plane, to make sure that the US norms apply all the way, as European allowances are usually lower.
  5. Tins of beans. Saute onions, carrot, celery with your choice of herbs or spices. Throw in a tin of drained beans or lentils and warm through. Use a tin of lentils and add tomatoes to make a pasta sauce .
  6. I use very few 'fake meats' like burgers, sausages, etc. Real whole foods are much nicer.
  7. As a low meat person who wants to maintain muscle into old age, I use a lot of 0 percent fat Greek yoghurt, nuts, lentils, beans and whole grains. I don't feel as if I have a lot of space in my diet for empty calories, so I make sure that everything contributes and everything is delicious. I use nut butter or hummus on sandwiches, for example, and crackers that contain seeds. This might be typical day. It's over 1.4g of protein per kilo of body weight.
  8. Jumpsuits are very in in the UK at present. I wore this to my son's graduation!8125!10!331554465806!!!g!536705597012!&cm_mmc=PLA-_-Google1706109278-_-66694157655-_-40123833&gclid=Cj0KCQjw6KrtBRDLARIsAKzvQIEgDdG7Et0f2cmwodB0fLcN3nD3g52-YySHZ-pFhvk25EEEU6eVTKwaAnJMEALw_wcB
  9. Tofu is a medium for flavour but is bland by nature. For your stir fry, I would dry the tofu with paper towel, cut into one inch cubes, then marinate in soy sauce, fresh shredded ginger, fresh garlic, sesame oil and chili flakes (alter seasoning to taste). Overnight would be good, but at least half an hour. I then like to bake it at 200 degrees C for half an hour before throwing it into the stir fry at the end.
  10. No, he's always been a computer programmer.
  11. I'm working on good amounts of protein too to maintain muscle, so lots of tofu, beans and lentils. I have tips for tofu, if it helps.
  12. No, he's more like a county level champion, nowhere near Murray level.
  13. The key for me in getting acceptance has been really punchy flavours and good amounts of healthy fats. This guy has some good ideas ETA this one is always a hit Husband cooks about half the time and he makes double veg for me. I top up with hummus or cheese afterwards if I don't fancy the meat.
  14. An odd day. I woke early and had a great three-mile walk on the beach before work. Late morning I walked to the pharmacy for a flu jab and a pneumococcal vaccine. The latter knocked my low blood pressure too low, I think, and I spent 45 minutes with my head between my knees. Back to work and my brother messaged me that he was in hospital about to have a heart stent fitted. Apparently he had two heart attacks six weeks ago - he thought it was just back ache. He's the local tennis champion, cycles to work, good diet, slim.... He's doing fine but it's a bit of a shock. Junk was consumed and yoga cancelled.
  15. One of the reasons we are moving house is for our health. I am working full time and my office is in the middle of a small town which has almost all the services you need. So I run a lot of errands on foot at lunchtimes, keeping me naturally active until I retire in eleven years. I live five miles away in a small village that only has a post office - three mornings a week. I post few letters. I can see from Husband's lifestyle (he consciously exercises three days a week and walks the dog for 40 minutes most days, but he sits the rest of the time) that small village living is not the best for being active. We will be moving to a larger village/small town that is walkable so that we can get natural exercise into old age: shopping, carrying purchases, going out for a coffee, etc.
