I missed yesterday! How dare I…
Well I am making up for it today! Hello, and I hope you’re week has been amazing! It is so freaking warm here in AB! Got to love summer though. And I love summer so much, why not spend more time loving this gorgeous weather and getting fit!!! Here are my health and wellness tips of the week:
I like to ride my bicycle! - I have recently decided that I am no longer going to be driving my car this summer. I will be saving tons of money by parking it and biking to work, school, and recreational places too! How awesome is that? TOO AWESOME! Also it will be burning tons of calories, working out my legs, AND getting me a nice tank top and helmet tan… yummmm! Look into it. Is it easy to bike for you? Will you save money on gas and insurance, most definitely!
Lets turn a workout to a sweaty mess. - Active sets have always been my extra way of kicking my ass a little harder at the gym. I love lifting weights and do enjoy my rest times, BUT I don’t always get the results I want. So I put in some active sets. Easy things, mountain climbers, skipping, push ups, and then doing either a certain amount or just for the allotted time. This is perfect for burning those extra calories, just make sure if you’re working your chest you don’t decide to do push ups. It works the same muscle group and you don’t want to exhaust them. So do opposite things, like legs and sit ups. BINGO!
Life’s too short, sprint it! - I always get “I just don’t like cardio” this attitude needs to go. To be blunt and over all a dick. You need cardio. It is very important. So why not do something that is quick and very effective, sprints. These are good to do on a curve machine or even just outside. Sprint as hard as you can for 30 seconds then take a 4 minute break, this will give you good recovery time for your next sprint. Do 4 sets of this and the next week, do 5, following week do 6, etc. It will make you faster and will burn a whole bunch of calories!
Well thats all my tips for this week.
Lets’ get sweaty everybody!
om nom nom. FRUIT!!!
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY AMERICA!! From your friend up in Canada!
Loving my life lately! It’s summer! Lots of people are coming to visit. I always love hanging out with people but a lot of the times it ends up in a pub drinking. Am I right? Especially when it is independence day or Canada day. It’s not always easy to eat right at a pub or even out. My thoughts and tips when this happens!
Sit down and stay a while - don’t cut your time short because you don’t want to eat badly. Sit down stay a while. Visit and enjoy the people you are around. When you’re having a good time you don’t have to binge eat.
NO SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS - It’s hard to not over drink and for the most part it’s not the smartest idea. Have some fun drinks with flavoured vodka and soda (or even better water). Add some limes and lemons, this gives it flavour with out all the calories. Also remember there is a limit don’t have eleven cause they all add up.
Yumm try these friesss - Don’t eat this food. It is full of sodium and crap you don’t need in your body. If you want something grab a salad it doesn’t should lovely but it will help.
Try your best guys. If it you slip it isn’t the end of the world. Get back on the wagon tomorrow.
Also, HAVE FUN!
