My Top Three Body Weight Movements

When it comes to losing weight and getting stronger, I often here this one reply:

I don’t have time to go to the gym!

To be honest, when I hear this, I often try to stay understanding and compassionate. Most times though it leaves me holding my head in my hands in an act of frustration. Because everyone body can make time, and no, you don’t have to go to a gym!

And with these three movements, which I do almost everyday! You truly can lose weight and tone up the body!

Movement one: The burpee, I know that most people loath them, but I love them. The burpee is a total body movement. You can tone the body and burn fat. And if all you have is a few minutes, do burpees for a few minutes of burpees.

 

Movement two: Air Squat, this is a wonderful workout   for the lower body and a functional movement for everyday life. I suggest starting with five sets of fifteen reps everyday.

Movement three: The push up, this movement also comes from the burpee, but the push up is amazing and targeting the entire body in one movement. If you want to throw in a plank, you can do that too!

My point is though, is that these three movements give you the best bang for your buck. Even if it’s a little bit of time. The point is, is that you are doing something! Of course you can add in others, but these are my top three, that you can do everyday and make more challenging.

PS, also add in adequate nutrition, much less sugar and you’re headed in a wonderful direction!

You and The Vending Machine

Wow,

Thank you for all the likes on my latest post, for all the new subscribers. I really hope to help and inspire people however I can!

Okay, that aside, I was asked to write a blog on combating the desire to go the vending machine when you are at work or in need of a quick repass, or something to get you through the day. More specially, that nagging antagonist in your mind, that tells you to cure your hunger by getting a 50 cent or dollar snack.

Now, I fail at nutrition too, a lot and sometimes I give into the temptation too. We are humans and we will make mistakes whether we like it or not. Let’s be honest about that. Much more, let us know our enemies all the more.

What I mean is, know, when your enemy sets out to attack on a daily basis. And be ready for it, better yet attack the enemy before they can attack you. I know I’m using very militant language. But when it comes to our health and nutrition, we have to be disciplined and go out on the attack.

Be it, making sure that you maybe pack healthy snacks with you, the night before. And drink plenty of water. Eat more foods that leave fuller longer, steak and higher protein foods. When you have that temptation, even finding a corner and knocking out some push ups or burpees.

Make every effort to make war against the temptation, because that mid day snack isn’t going to get you closer to your goals. Of being healthy, happier, more alive, satisfied and focused. It will get you off course faster than anything.

But.. But.. If you do get off track, please remember not to beat your self up, but dust your self off and get back on the path. Even if you do have a cheat day- that’s fine, but than start pounding the water and getting back on it. Typically, when our bodies tell us that we are hungry, and we crave the cheap and easy foods, our bodies crave nutritionist.

So apply discipline, and feet it healthy things. Learn to say no, imply windows of fasting and starve your body of its desire of processed craving. In our lives, we can leave behind legacy, one that can go on for those after us. That starts by making small changes today, in the here and now.
