Going to the Gym Anyone?
Whew! After cancelling our membership to a local gym that was costing us a lot of money each month, and was too far away to fit reasonably into our lifestyle; we were looking for a way to keep moving without it impacting our lives too much.
Now I'm pleased to learn that a new study has been done showing that doing simple housework each day adds up enough to prevent breast cancer!
"Women who exercise by doing the housework can reduce their risk of breast cancer, a study suggests. The research on more than 200,000 women from nine European countries found doing household chores was far more cancer protective than playing sport."Since I'm famous for disliking most athletic things, this cheers me. I'd rather get in shape (or at least prevent further disintegration) by doing works that needs to be done anyway, than by spending money to sweat on an elipical trainer!
