Recently a friend of mines came up to me and started complaining about the fact that she wasn’t losing the kind of weight she expected even though she was eating right and working out. I than asked her how long she has been trying to lose weight and she said one week. I had to tell her that losing weight is a process and you shouldn’t expect to see results in a couple of days. You don’t actually start seeing some real results for a couple of weeks and even sometimes a couple of months. I also asked her about her diet plan and what she was doing to workout. She said she was walking every other day and only eating two meals a day. Again I told her that if she wanted to see optimal results that she would have to work out each and every day and also she needed to stop eating two big meals a deal. She than told me that she had to eat but I told her that instead of eating two big meals a day that she should it five small meals a day. This would help her consume less calories for the day while also being able to control her hunger and still giving her the energy she needs to make it through the day. When losing weight people need to remember that it takes hard work and time. If weight loss was so simple and could be achieved over night we would be living in a world of skinny people. To lose the weight that you want you need to workout every day and make sure to create a diet plan and stick to it. Doing these things every day you can expect to see some weight loss and if you don’t see it in the first two weeks don’t be discouraged because your hard work will pay off and you’ll soon be able to wear the sexy dress or swimsuit.

I recently began running regularly to make sure I stay in shape and also make sure I control my weight. Running is a great way to lose weight as you will burn off a lot of calories and get a good sweat in. Well recently while running around my neighborhood I’ve noticed that I’ve been getting a lot of sharp pains in my news. When I run I’m usually running on the side walk which is of course concrete. The pain got so bad that I decided to see a doctor because it was no longer just hurting when I was running but also during my daily life at home and at work. My doctor said that the problem may be that I don’t have the right type of running shoes and asked me what type I had. I didn’t know what type I had and told him it was a pretty one with some pink in it. He then gave me some recommendations of shoes I should try out and I did. They may not be as pretty as my other ones but let me tell you this, my knees are no longer hurting and that’s all that counts!
Every time I go down to my gym I always see everyone on the treadmill. Personally I think it’s the most popular workout machine and is a great way to lose weight. I always see people younger than me on them going at a pace that I couldn’t keep up with no matter how hard I could try. When I first started using the treadmill I will admit that I probably didn’t use it properly and either did to much or not enough. Over the months that I’ve been using it and also talking to trainers at my gym I’ve come out with ways that will help you use the treadmill to help with your weight loss and make sure you don’t over do it.

I’ve talked a lot about losing weight and different ways of doing so and one way that I’ve mentioned quite a few times is running. Running is a great way to burn off some of that extra weight but I’ll admit it’s not the easiest thing to do. I recently started running and noticed that my feet were beginning to hurt a lot after every run. I decided that I could no longer use the shoes I had and went to the mall to find some new running shoes. Let me just say this, every running shoe is not created equally. So when looking for the right running shoe for you, here are some things to do when you’re at the store figuring out which one to get. Continue reading
A couple of months back I was told this comment and for some reason I though they were talking about all the junk I had in my car trunk and was wondering how they knew about it. Well I found out later that this had nothing to do with my car but instead my back side. I really didn’t know how to take this comment as if it was a good thing or a bad thing. On one end it sort of sounds like you’re overweight and basically have a big butt but others say it is actually a good thing. Well I took it really not as a negative but a wake up call to empty out some of that junk I had. So I went researching online on ways to lose weight and also ways to get a smaller butt. I tried a bunch of different things but these two things seemed to work the most. Continue reading
This is a question not only I think about but also all of my friends and family so I’m assuming that everyone thinks about it as well. Gym memberships can sometimes be expensive but they are a way to help get yourself in shape because they have everything you need to make sure you lose weight. The problem is though people sign up for gym memberships, go a couple of times and then never go again and keep getting charged each month even though they no longer use it. So are gym memberships really worth it and should you take the plunge and sign up? Continue reading
Everyone wants it but rarely admit it, they want a six pack. I’m telling you if I had a rock hard stomach I would be like Mike from the Jersey Shore lifting up shirt for everyone to see. Why wouldn’t I be proud because getting a flat stomach is tough to do especially for someone my age. After just eating a sandwich I can see it in my gut. I’ve recently been looking into simple way to flatten my stomach and I think I’ve come up with somethings to try that might actually work. Continue reading
