Wiki Assignment 4: Reading and commenting (20 Points)

Due: MWF class: 12/03, TT class: 12/04


Read and Comment on 5 articles on the wiki

Add links to your personal page in this section + add a comment / reflection on each page you have read (what surprised you? What did you learn?)

  1. Eating out the healthy way:  This article made me realize how carefully I should pick out my food when eating out.  Making little changes in how I order can make a big difference on my diet and how many calories I consume in one meal.
  2. Overexercising:  In this article, I learned that 23% of people that regularly exercise, overexercise.  I had no idea that many people suffered from this.  I also learned that overexercising can be found in many people that have eating disorders.
  3. Soreness In Muscles:  I learned that it is important to hydrate while working out to decrease sorness in the days to come.  Also taking warm baths will increase blood flow that will ease muscles.
  4. Benefits of Flexibility:  This article showed me how important flexibility is.  I also learned it is not good to hold your breath while stretching.  You should make sure you continue to breathe while stretching.  Also, flexibility helps to protect against injury.
  5. The importance of water:  I learned the difference of hot water vs. cold water in this article.  Hot water helps to stimulate the immune system and increases the body's circulation whereas cold water helps with  infammation and constipation.
