Nanima co za 062 – Weight watching

Wonders of Wii

Every time we visit bichoo’s nana bagie and nanima’s home, there is always war. Especially if my siblings are around. Whoever has control of the remote is king. One will want to watch e entertainment and depressing Diana, the other doesn’t want Liverpool to walk alone and wants to watch sport, the 3rd faction wants to watch Bollywood, boogie woogie or Kasam se’. The war get’s so intense that some will make sure they wake up before the other person to snatch the remote and have control for the day. If they have control they will hide it and even take it with them to bathroom when they shower.. You can imagine the pressure they are all under to have control.

This weekend we were surprised with the Wii. For the first time ever was the DSTV remote neglected. No one looked at. Not one of us changed the channel once. Everyone played with each other only competing who would get a birdie or who would get a strike in bowling. Wii was a real unifying force to be reckoned with.

Nintendo Wii Console (Includes Wii Sports)

The next day we bought the Wii fit. This is an amazing piece of machinery. It looks like a bathroom scale. You stand on it it measures your BMI(Body mass Index), weight athletic ability, and even your balance. At the end of the test it calculates your fitness age. Let’s say my BMI was not ideal. My fitness age was that of a real nanima. It was a wakeup call for all that were measured. There after you set a goal to get to your ideal BMI and train. There are many exercises like Yoga, aerobic exercises – hula hoops, jogging, balance exercises like skiing. Wii fit is ideal for the person who wants to train at home and wants to be monitored. Like you have your own personal trainer on your doorstep. Let’s say after a week of Wii fit I seem to be younger and almost my ideal weight.. wow..wow wii

Wii Fit (Wii)

Wii s a home video game console released by Nintendo. A distinguishing feature of the console is its wireless controller, the Wii Remote, which can be used as a handheld pointing device and detect movement in three dimensions. In simple terms when you are playing tennis, putting during golf, bowling or boxing you have to stand up and do the actions instead of sitting like a couch potato.

We are asking all women to cherish their breasts by checking them each month for changes to help detect breast cancer early. All women are at risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer. In the past, breast cancer mostly affected women over 40 years old but we are seeing younger and younger women presenting with breast cancer. The key is to detect breast cancer early so that you can get treatment and have a better chance of survival.

Go passionately pink for October and keep cancer survivors close to your heart. This is our message for our awareness campaigns in October, which is International Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The pink ribbon is an international symbol for breast cancer awareness. Many South Africans wear pink or pink items such as pins and ribbons in order to show their support for the cancer cause.

FATNESS VS FITNESS

Oprah’s nemesis!!! The world is obsessed with this. It amazes me at how socially unacceptable fatness has become. What worries me more is that a person can be stick thin twiggy,lethargic and anorexic and this is totally accepted. Both are two extremes. The focus is totally lost. People are obsessed about weight instead of health. It doesn’t mean if a person is thin, they are fit. If you are battling with weight, either fat or thin, focus on FITNESS. Clear your mind, sit still thinking about nothing for 10 minutes a day increasing as the days go, focus on you breathing , start moving, break a sweat, exercise 30 minutes a day(brisk walking, running) , eat fibre/oats for breakfast, drink 6 glasses of water, be grateful for what you have, think happy thoughts, focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses, eat healthy foods especially fruits and veggies and most importantly find balance.

Fatness vs Fitness

NANIMA’S WISE WORDS

Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness. Edward Stanley

The BMI formula

The Body Mass Index(BMI) formula was developed by Belgium statistician Adolphe Quelet(1796-1874), and was known as the Quetelet Index. BMI is also referred to as ‘body mass indicator’. BMI is an internationally used measure of obesity.

How to calculate BMI – for users who wish to manually calculate BMI we have provided a bmi formula for both imperial & metric measurements

Body mass index calculation is very straightforward. Calculating body mass index requires only two measurements, height & weight.

Metric Imperial BMI Formula

The metric bmi formula accepts weight measurements in kilograms & height measurements in either cm’s or meters.
1 meter = 100cms
meters² = meters * meters

Table: Metric BMI Formula
BMI =
( kg/m² )

Driving Rain? Tips to Staying Safe When Driving in the Wet

The weather can be trying at the best of times, but with traffic jams, road-works and a host of other hazards to contend with, so too can driving on roads! But when you find yourself caught in a downpour behind the wheel, what can you do to keep yourself safe?

The first thing you should do is keep a good distance from the car in front. It’s advisable to keep a two second gap in normal, dry conditions but in the wet your stopping distance is roughly doubled so you should aim to keep at least four seconds away from the vehicle you’re following. One method of doing this is to pick out a static object at the roadside such as a direction sign or street-lamp and count the time difference from when the front of the vehicle ahead of you passes the landmark until the front of your vehicle goes past the same object. This will help judge your distance, so you can amend your driving style accordingly to suit.

You should always be aware of the possibility of surface water, particularly if you’re driving in an unfamiliar area. Keep your eye firmly on the road ahead and watch out for any telltale signs, such as the traffic in front of you braking sharply. Hitting a patch of deep water at speed will have a dramatic effect on your vehicle’s handling and you could ‘aquaplane’ your vehicle which will cause a complete loss of control, so you should aim to avoid this at all costs by planning ahead as much as you can.

If you do have to drive through deep water, do so slowly in order to avoid a bow wave flooding your exhaust or engine and once through the hazard, test your brakes in order to make sure they’re still working properly, while the friction will also help evaporate any moisture present on the braking components.

Visibility is often a problem when you’re driving in heavy rain. Your vehicle can easily steam up and the spray from the road can also affect your vision of the road ahead. Make sure your demisters are on at a sufficient level to enable you to see clearly, and if you keep a safe distance you can negate the effects of surface spray from the vehicle in front of you. If your vision has become seriously jeopardised then it’s advisable to pull over in a safe place, get your windows cleared or wait until the worst of the weather has passed before resuming your journey.

In addition to taking these precautionary measures, it is important to have adequate car insurance, as other drivers might not be so cautious. Make sure your insurance policy is up to date, but if it isn’t or you don’t have a current policy, then insuring your car through an online car insurance provider can be a quick way to peace of mind.
