Stuck in a fitness rut? Here’s a quick at-home no-equipment workout from Jessica at WhatIWore. Try it out today - you can do it while you catch up on a DVR’d tv show.
WhatIWore: In the past year, I’ve made a committment to get my health and fitness in gear and the results have been awesome. Not only do I look better, but I feel great! Fitness isn’t an all or nothing game! Even adding a simple workout like this one can make an impact. …Let’s get started!
right on, bendoeslife!:
No more “I’ve already eaten poorly today so I’ll eat poorly again tonight and start back tomorrow.”
These delusional rationalizations plague and sabotage us. We have fallen in the love with the idea, rather than the execution, of getting our habits under control.
Want to start it off right? Start right now. Flip the switch.
This is that hardest of all the lessons. It’s nearly impossible. But if we can eke it out, it’s the only way to start.
To summarize the article, you should have something in your system before you work out (a light snack, not a 5-course meal) so that your body burns energy & fat instead of burning muscle. Eating something healthy about 30 minutes after a workout is important too so that you don’t overeat later. Click here to read the whole article, it’s full of good information & snack ideas.
LaurenConrad.com is encouraging its readers to participate in a Bikini Body Countdown. They’re encouraging readers to break unhealthy habits by making health and fitness focused changes, like giving up something unhealthy every month. I like the idea of making small, manageable changes and gradually forming new habits, so I thought I’d share this resource. This is yet another way you can stay on track with that New Year’s Resolution you made to drop those last pesky 5 pounds, cut out dessert, workout more, or whatever it was you promised yourself you’d do in 2013.
