“What we eat affects everything… be careful with sugars, salts, and “bad” fats—saturated and, especially, trans fats. But don’t obsess over what you eat, make smart decisions and be aware of what your meal is providing. Learn to know when you’re hungry. Often, thirst is mistaken for hunger, causing people to eat when it’s not necessary. Combine a balanced diet with exercise, to increase the health benefits of your healthy diet.”
Research finds that exercising together increases your happines, boosts your energy output, helps you achieve your fitness goals and strengthens your realtionship. Couples and friends that train together get shredded together and have more fun!
Believe in yourself and you’ll be surprised to see what you can accomplish.
Whenever you feel a lack of motivation just remember all the reasons you want to lose weight and get fit.
Have a great day!
“It’s like the old saying: “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” The same philosophy holds true for making changes in your life. Trying to bite off more than you can chew will only make you choke. But taking smaller, manageable bites, one at a time – eating a little healthier, exercising a little, creating some simple productive habits, for example – is an amazing way to make positive changes and get excited about life.”
Some days we fly, some days we crawl, we must find a way to move forward every single day.
The only thing standing between you and what you want out of life is the WILL to try and FAITH to believe it’s possible.
Good morning! I challenge you to give it a TRY. If you’re just beginning to exercise, start with own your pace and progress slowly. But before you rush to your workout, check your fitness level! Tests will help you find out how strong, fit, and flexible you are so you can set realistic fitness goals and determine what kind of workout regimen is right for you. Once you know where you’re starting from, you can plan where you want to go.
For those more advanced… don’t stress out if a certain exercise is too much for your current fitness level. If you find it difficult to do, don’t give up, just adapt it. You can drop the weights, do less repetitions… there are modifications for each move, but always do it at a speed that is comfortable for you.
If you’re looking to shed pounds more quickly, focus on compound exercises such as Squat to Overhead Press, Single-Leg Dumbbell Row, Step-Up With Bicep Curl, Deadlifts, Plank, Superman…these exercises work big muscles and small muscles together at the same time which burns more calories and builds more muscle than if you spent your time doing simple isolation exercises, such as bicep curls and triceps extensions, which only work one muscle and use one joint at a time.
You are working out at home and you’re not sure what the moves are? You can find them all on Google or Youtube.
“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”
Happy Monday to you all! Have a great day!

“The holidays are quickly approaching – And upon my diet, quickly encroaching.” ~ Thin Thin
My friend said to me today that her challenge for this month is to stay away from the sweets. I know that for most of us this can be a struggle and a real challenge, but if you can just manage not to overdo it, your body will be grateful to you.
Happy Wednesday to you all and a wonderful holiday season!
Sunday Inspiration: If we do one random act of kindness daily we just might set the world in the right direction.
I know we live in difficult times and everyone has a cross to bear. However, we often forget that kindness is free. Kind words don’t cost anything but they go far for the people receiving them. They can put you in a good mood and give you wings. How great is it that our small acts of kindness can make a big difference in someone else’s entire day?
“Be generous with kind words for others. This doesn’t mean making things up to score point. But if you feel it, say it! You’ll feel good as you make them feel good–a two-for-one benefit!”
Wishing you all a very merry and blessed holiday season!
