The best of all is Maradona.”But now I will not go, there at some point it happens. But I would like Mauricio Pochettino.”You have to call him and convince him to come to lead the biggest team in the world.”MOST READ IN SPORT GossipCROWD RETURNFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at games’CommentPHIL THOMASDiving and whining was never a good look and will seem worse after lockdownExclusive’I’M IN A BAD WAY’Ex-England star Kenny Sansom talks for first time since being attackedExclusiveBOURNE AGAINHowe says Cherries are stronger after lockdown with FIVE fit-again starsExclusiveSWAN THAT GOT AWAYSwansea wanted £3m Davies three years ago but couldn’t get work permitExclusiveMARK MY WORDSJennings reveals life story from adoption to drug abuse and suicide attemptsNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticAWAY DAYSMartin Skelly remembers county’s day in the sun when Dublin rocked into townBAYERN 5 DUSSELDORF 0Lewa bags two as Bayern thump rivals to close on 8th straight titleTHEIR CALLReferees in Northern Ireland will be given choice on coming back says union bossPochettino visited Maradona earlier this month before he watched Gimnasia’s 2-1 win over Cordoba.The 47-year-old has also emerged as a top target for West Ham if Manuel Pellegrini is sacked.But his hopes of joining Manchester United have been slashed after the club told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that his job is safe.Mauricio Pochettino ‘wants Man Utd job ahead of Arsenal’ as he targets swift return to management after ruthless Spurs sacking
Bobbi Hyrman misses movie popcorn. But, for the most part, she says she lost more than 100 pounds without drastic life changes.Hyrman, who went from 358 pounds to about 255 pounds in less than a year through the Washington State University Clark County Extension Diabetes Prevention Program, opted for walking to the movie theater about a mile away from her Vancouver home instead of driving.Hyrman, 38, also began to track her calories with an app. The week after she started, she went to the movies, checked the popcorn’s calorie count and thought: “Oh, this is very sad.”“I do miss movie popcorn,” Hyrman said.That’s a small sacrifice, one of a handful of such changes Hyrman had to make while enrolled in the prevention program.The program, which is approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is a one-year lifestyle program supporting people in efforts to reduce their risk for Type 2 diabetes. The program is led by Amy Cooley, a lifestyle coach, and involves weekly group meetings.“It’s about getting over that diet mentality,” Cooley said. “Some people think it’s all about losing weight.”But Cooley said the aim is to be healthy, not to improve your appearance.A recent CDC report showed that 4.3 percent of adults with diabetes don’t know they have it. The CDC also reported that more than 30 millions Americans have diabetes (about 1 in 10), and around 90 to 95 percent of them have Type 2 diabetes, sometimes called adult onset diabetes. It is linked to sedentary lifestyle and poor diet.Hyrman’s biggest exercise change involved walking more often, which is important since she works an IT desk job. She set a goal of 6,000 steps per day, and while she doesn’t have structured times committed to exercise, she is able to meet her goal through getting to work early and walking around the office, walking to the theater, walking around her house or the neighborhood, and even walking around while watching video on her phone.
