Love the Skin You Are In, And Others Will, Too

Love the Skin You Are In, And Others Will, Too

Sunday  Motivation: Love the skin you’re in, and others will, too

“When you’re hard on yourself, the people around you usually jump on the bandwagon,” says Quebec-based nutritionist and body coach Robyn Jaquays. “They’re hard on you, too.” The more you honour and appreciate your body, the more likely it is you’ll attract positive, uplifting people into your life. “Stop telling yourself you’re fat, ugly or stupid,” she says. “And stop comparing yourself to others—you’re doing yourself an injustice! Instead, focus on your best qualities.”

Don’t wait until you lose weight to love your body. Your body is precious. Treat it with care!

Wishing you a very lovely day! :)

Losing Weight Takes Time

Losing Weight Takes Tim

Wednesday Motivation… because motivation is like cold hard cash: You can never have too much!

Losing weight and getting fit can improve your overall health and quality of life so it’s worth all the struggle, effort, dedication and hard work. Feeling good about yourself and your body means you’re going to feel confident. And when you feel confident you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.

Don’t give up if you don’t lose weight as fast as you thought! Losing weight takes time because you’re changing your lifestyle.

Being On The Right Track

Being On The Right Track

How do you know you’re on the right track with your weight loss plan?

For me it is in the way I daily approach my food and in the way I approach exercise. Healthy eating is not a struggle anymore  and I really understand the benefits I gain for my health from exercise. I noticed I have more energy. I feel more confident than ever, I feel happy. Most of the days I pop out of bed in the morning ready to conquer the world. I’m sure a healthier and fitter person. Fitness became a lifestyle and it can be addictive, but in a good way.

Have a wonderful day, everyone! Remember, everyday is a good day to start over, to start fresh, and to change something you don’t like. Don’t wait for Monday or next day or new year…

What Is Your Reason For Training?

What Is Your Reason For Training?

One of the reasons I workout is to become strong. When I first started exercising (and that was 5 years ago) I literally couldn’t do a single proper push up. Now I’m able to do 25 in a row, yay! Not to mention I can finaly open the pickle jar by myself. :)
I workout because that makes me feel good about myself. When I look myself in the mirror I actually like what I see. Well, most of the time anyway. :)  I’ve also noticed that this self confidence translated into other areas of my life.
I workout because it strengthens my spirit, keeps my mind sharp and gives me energy.
I workout because I want to be able to take care of myself when I get old. Exercise strengthens your bones, too.
I workout because it burns off cheat meals! :)
I workout because I feel guitly if I don’t. Believe it or not. :)

I have many reason for training but the most important one is my health. I workout to stay healthy. I battled depression for two years after the birth of my son….

What’s your reason for sweating? :)

Save Calories With a Little Creativity

Save Calories With a Little Creativity

Replace cream and sugar with a teaspoon of cinnamon in coffee to save 70+ calories per cup and add a potential metabolism boost.

According to the many studies cinnamon is used to help treat muscle spasms, vomiting, diarrhea, infections, the common cold, loss of appetite,  lowers the negtive effects of high fat meals and much more. Cinnamon can also help stablize blood sugar (which is great for weight loss). A couple of dashes in your morning tea or cereal is all it takes. And while it might be exciting to try something new, cinnamon doesn’t really taste as delicious as cream and sugar so you may like it or not. But if you never try you you’ll never know. :)

However, before consuming cinnamon and or cinnamon-flavored foods, drinks and food supplements consult your doctor or pharmacist especially, if you take any medicines. Cinanamon could  interact with antibiotics, diabetes drugs, blood thinners, heart medicines, and others. You can never be too careful.

Why Do Weight Training

Why Do Weight Training

Strength training is just as important as cardio. It  can change your body shape like no other exercise can. Build your strength and you’ll lose more weight faster, plus you’ll tighten those trouble zones, raise your metabolism, strengthen your bones and muscles.

No More Long Sleeves

No More Long Sleeves

“There’s no such thing as spot treatment for fat. Just doing arm exercises won’t make your arms thin. For weight loss to occur, you’ve got to burn more calories than you consume. This can be done by eating a healthy, low-calorie diet and getting plenty of exercise.”

Feel like you have wings? Do you wear long sleeves even in warm temperatures to hide your flabby arms? Feel confident wearing tank tops next summer by incorporating these five upper arm exercises into your daily workout routine:http://bit.ly/115Iakv
