Getting Fit in July – No Excuses!

As we meet the beginning of July, fireworks and parties begin signaling the beginning of summer. Children are off school, and parents are ready to take them to the beach. All this means one thing. Are you ready for the summer? Had he been exercising all year long and dieting and eating healthily? If so, you are happily sporting your new outfits, short dresses and shorts. Tank tops and T-shirts, looking good, feeling good and not shaping in the heat as you walk around the beach.

However most people don’t meet their goals when they make them in the new year. Usually because these resolutions have been constant perhaps for the past decade or even two or three decades. Every single summer promising yourself that next summer will be the summer that you get in shape. The most people don’t actually reach those goals. And us July begins and people have vacations planned at the end of the month or in August, panic begins. We begin to wonder what kind of short-term quick fast and potentially dangerous solutions we can do in order to lose a lot of weight in a short amount of time. By doing something too extreme, you are putting yourself at risk. However, there are short-term solutions that actually will help you develop a long-term healthy lifestyle. One of the most popular exercise programs of the past two years is called the 21 day fix.

This program was designed by a personal trainer who is famous for fitness and getting people in shape with her dynamic, and effective workout programs. The workouts are designed to do over the course of three weeks. You can read more about the 21 day fix by going to this review. Here, Jennifer discusses how this program has helped her lose 40 pounds in under four months. Of course, you don’t have four months before the summer. I on that average you could lose up to 15 pounds in one month and that could make a big difference in how you fit and feel in your bikini, August if that is when your vacation is planned. The best thing about this program is it also combines a portion control and nutrition guide so that you don’t have to figure out what to eat and how much you should eat. All you have to do is follow the program to a T and that you will lose weight.

Getting Fit to the Max in the New Year!

Many people struggle on how to keep in shape in the new year because it is difficult to continue sports and cycling when the winter hits! Here in Canada, the snow was postponed until the first week of January. People were still out able to cycle and go jogging up until Christmas time because there were dry roads and grass galore! This made it easy to continue to exercise to burn calories and keep in shape.  Unfortunately, now that the snow has come it is more difficult to be able to continue your cycling routine through the hills to burn the excess calories after the holidays full of eating turkey and holiday desserts.

Luckily, there is a new diet and weight loss supplement out that is helping people lose weight steadily. It is known as Skinny Body MAX pills and is packed with all natural weight loss and diet ingredients like garcinia cambogia which helps block new fat form forming. If you start taking these now you will reduce your risk of gaining weight after eating high fat foods over the holiday season.  Studies suggest that not only does it help prevent weight gain but it can also stop the forming of new fat cells in your body. This is great news! It also is shown to help reduce the waist line and trims inches off your weight. But you need to take the pills twice a day.  You can take them either in the morning before your breakfast with a tall glass of purified water.  You then need to wait around 30-40 minutes before taking two pills.  You then can eat after you wait this period of time. The Skinny Body MAX expands in your stomach causing you to feel nice and full after a plate of lunch or dinner.  You are then less tempted to eat more and will therefore reduce your risk of weight gain.  You can take the pills again 30 minutes before dinner and the same effect will take place.  If you want to maximize your weight loss over the next 90 days, exercise around 3-5 times a week

The more you exercise, the more calories you will burn and therefore you will lose weight. Though you don’t need to take the pills and exercise if you find that you don’t have time enough in your day to complete both.  The Skinny Body MAX pills alone are designed to help you manage your weight.  So while you are struggling to lose weight in the new year, you can take these pills during the off season to prevent you from getting fat while on a break from cycling.

Get Physically Fit with Skinny Fiber

Sometimes I feel so frustrated because there are so many different types of diet pills and weight pills on the market. Which weight loss pill can I trust? Which company is telling the truth? I want to lose weight and I have always been very soft and have always needed to lose weight. I was younger I was in love with a boy and I’m boy decided she preferred a girl who was skinnier than I was. As a child it was difficult to understand. Why did David love her instead of me? I was funny and pretty to. I realize that boys only were sexually attracted to girls who were slim and skinny. I was never slim or skinny and I had no boyfriends growing up. When I was 30 I realized I needed to make a change or that I would be alone for the rest of my life. I decided to start taking a fiber supplement called skinny fiber in order to try to lose weight. Reading reviews on skinny fiber pills was the best thing I could have done and I lost 40 pounds in under six months.

The pills have many different ingredients that make them different from other weight loss pills and diet supplements. You are all natural so there are no side effects to taking the pills and you will lose weight if you are consistent and take the pills every day with large glasses of water. The most difficult part for me was avoiding eating heavy amounts of sugar. I have always been an emotional eater because I have been alone for the majority of my life. Sometimes I eat even when I’m not hungry. Skinny fiber makes your stomach feel satisfied after eating smaller quantities of food so for me the hardest part was not eating after my stomach felt full. I began exercising five times a week while taking these incredible fiber supplements as well I only exercised with a workout program and exercise for under 20 minutes but did exercises were intense but short.

Combining both exercise with skinny fiber pills allow me to lose the weight that I always had wanted to lose. After losing all this way it was amazing how many more men started to pay me attention. I began to go on dates almost every single day of the week. Men started paying more attention and you know why it, I ran into David two weeks ago. David is single and he asked me on a date. I said yes and now David and I are dating and we will be boyfriends and girlfriends through. When you lose weight, it changes your life and you begin to see the world in a different way. You can go shopping and try on a dress and look amazing in that dress. You can go to a party and know that men will talk to you because you looking that good. People say that you shouldn’t have to be skinny in order to attract met and I used to be proud of who you are and your personality

But the truth of the matter is, men are looking for a woman whose funny or nice. He’s looking for a woman whose attractive and hot and fit. After that he looks for the growth was funny and worthy of being his girlfriend. Personally I have never been attracted to sentiment and yet I wondered why men who were physically in good shape one attracted to me. You have to go for what you want and what you are. If you are fat, be prepared to settle down with a fat man. If you are fed be prepared to settle down with a fit person. I know it sounds superficial but it is how it is. In order to lose weight you need to stay motivated and try the supplement that is right for you. Skinny fiber changed my life and I will always remember that.

Exercise Training and Off-Season Preparation

When you are not biking during the cycling season, it is imperative to keep in shape in other ways to ensure you are strong, fit and stay in shape for the upcoming season. A lot of people take long breaks while they preparing for the season and they don’t workout nearly as much as they should. Think about it, just like a bike, a body gets rusty if you don’t grease it. You need to keep your muscles strong and fit in order to stay in shape for the season.

When I am not biking in the winter, I am going to the gym and spinning or taking some sort of cycling class. A lot of people hate stationary bikes and don’t like to incorporate that as part of their routine. That’s okay! You just need to find another type of workout that incorporates the same muscles that you use when biking – your legs, hamgstrings, thighs and calves of course! Going to the gym also is not a necessity. Some people I know like to do home workout videos such as beachbody’s 21 day fix containers which is a 3 week exercise program designed to get you in the best shape of your life in only 21 days. I was skeptical at first but decided to give it a try this month as I haven’t been cycling since it has been so hot outside. The program has a bunch of cardio and weight training exercises and my butt was so sore the next day after all the squats and lunges in the video that I could barely move. It was really an incredible feeling.

If you continue to do workout videos at home, you will also save a lot of time and hassle of going to the gym. I personally enjoy the gym for the social aspect of it because you can make friends and meet people while also doing something you love and having friends who have similar interests as you is imperative when you’re trying to get in shape or lose weight.  I like doing home exercise videos if I don’t have a lot of time to dedicate 3 hours to getting ready and heading to the gym but want a quick workout to keep in shape and give me a boost of energy when needed.  Any beach body program is excellent as they are all tailor designed according to your needs and weight loss goals.

So just keep in mind what is most important to you when working out and choose a program that will exercise the muscles you need to keep strong during the off season.  Programs like these are also recommended for any type of athlete like a soccer or volleyball player, where a soccer player will train his legs, a volleyball player might be more inclined to do upper body exercises to keep their forearms and biceps strong for serving and passing the ball as required in the game of volleyball.

Best Supplements for Optimal Cycling Performance

When you decide that you want to become a cyclist, there are many things you need to take into consideration. First of all, you need to remember that it is so important to stay hydrated while you are cycling. Cycling exerts a lot of energy and you burn a lot of calories, so for this reason it’s important to drink a lot of fluids like water, Gatorade, or some other type of sports performance drink. Many people do not want to buy Gatorade or power because they think it’s too expensive, so mind trick is to drink chocolate milk prior to going on a cycling adventure for several hours. Chocolate milk has the same types of nutrients required to perform longer and last longer. Basically you need to replace and replenish what you have lost through sweat when you are working so hard cycling.

Some other supplements I recommend for example are hCG drops. These jobs not only help you lose weight by they keep you energetic and able to finish your race. My aunt lost about 30 pounds on the hCG drops and hcg diet plan and she was an avid cyclists at the same time. Said the jobs kept her so energized that she was able to finish extremely long races and would not be tired afterwards. Remember when you are cycling to always wear sunscreen, because you are usually cycling in the daytime and with bear arms and bare legs and you do not realize the impact the sun can have on your skin. Keeping your skin hydrated is just as important as keeping your body hydrated through fluids.

So make sure to take care of your body entirely while cycling. Many people ask what is the best type of clothing to wear when you are cycling. I recommend wearing something with very thin and breathable material. Do not wear cotton, content is very uncomfortable and you will sweat a lot because the material will get wet by because it does not drive fast you will stay wet throughout the entire journey and not is very uncomfortable. Where some light breathable clothing so that when you are sweating and the clothing gets wet, it will try just as fast. After your cycling journey it is important to stay energized and feel your body because you will have burns a lot of calories. You can eat foods like balls, yogurt, a protein shake, or any other type of smoothie that contains protein to rebuild your muscles.

 

Best Places to Bike

Well, it’s summer time and depending on where you are you may be loving biking or hating it! My friend from Spain says she can’t bike there in the summer because it’s over 40 degrees Celsius and dead hot to even try biking!

Luckily where we are it’s only about 25 C on the hottest of days so I am loving taking my bike for a spin in the park.

Some people ask me why i prefer biking alone especially when I advocated meet-ups for bikes in groups and I’ll answer that with this: everyone likes to have a bit of alone time but some people require more than others.  Biking can be a leisurely activity but also a very therapeutic one. And due to things that have happened to me in my past, I view biking as exercise therapy. I bike regularly with the intention of clearing my mind, getting in shape and letting go of stress, hurt and pain.

Sometimes i like to bike with my mates through the park just for a laugh, or try some cool tricks and stuff, but in general I prefer biking alone, I love to soak up the nature and the scenery. Suits me perfectly.
