God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change,
the courage to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know it's me.
Grant me the serenity to accept the past I cannot change,
the courage to change the future I can,
and the wisdom to start today.
“Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward.”
The reason why people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go, instead of how far they have gotten.
Sweat is fat crying.
Pain is temporary, regret hurts forever. – Danny
The Best Video Game That Burns Almost the Same Amount of Calories as Running
An article (and video) at yahoo reports that when it comes to comparing the Wii with an Xbox with the kinect system, that there is no comparison. The test consisted of using a Heart Rate Monitor (I recommend Timex Heart Rate Monitors as you can replace the batteries) and see how many calories she burned running, and then compare it to the calories burned using the video games. She burned 259 calories in 20 minutes wen she was running. When she played the game Dance Central on the Xbox with the Kinect system she burned 251 calories. That's only 8 calories less, and it's FUN. The Kinect adventures had her jumping and ducking. She burned 216 calories, but her heart rate went thruogh the roof (its interval training basically). Compare these to the Wii Sword fighting game (149 calories – over 100 calories less than running), and you can see where the Wii isn't in the same league. She did like the Biggest Loser game even though she only burned 175 calroies in 20 minutes as it mixed cardio and strength training. The games are around $40. As of this writing the Xbox with the Kinect system goes for $258 at Amazon.com
