>Health and Fitness Tip For 10.9.10

>Instead of being a couch potato, workout while watching TV! You can get in a great 30-60 minute workout right in front of you TV. While watching your favorite program you can walk or jog in place, or in various patterns around the room. You can curl dumbbells, do squats, lunges, jumping jacks, and so much more. You can even simulate jump roping, who says you need the actual rope?

Think of the number of mountain climbers, leg lifts, arm circles, or reverse crunches you can crank out during a commercial break? Or you can save commercials for chugging back more water, or taking a "potty" break. Okay maybe that was TMI, but you get my point.

It's important that you stay hydrated throughout your workout, and that you aren't blocking the entire TV if you're doing this during "family time"; that's a sure way of causing drama. Trust me, you don't need that much room to workout, but make sure you have enough to move around safely. Soon after beginning your warm-up you will begin to perspire, you will notice as you're stretching that your body is really heating up (that's when you reach for your bottle of water) and if your body runs like mine, you should be in a soggy puddle of sweat in no time!

Remember that you need to burn what you have put in your body, not what you expect to put in it, so exercise shortly after a meal so you're not carrying over excess calories from earlier meals into the next one. It doesn't make sense to burn 200-300 calories during a workout (with 400-800 still in reserve from previous meals) just to put another 500-700 inside of your body post-workout. You are then always constantly ingesting and storing more carbs, proteins, and fats, than what you are able to work off…the end result is more BULGE!!!

Make sense?

I'd love to show you how to make exercise fun, work within your busy life, and guide you towards a healthier lifestyle. Want to learn more? My health and fitness section on this blog is coming real soon. But you can always contact me at: natasha@natashaforeman.info

If you won't take care of yourself for your self, then do it for the one(s) you love, so that you have more special moments to spend together!

>Day 11…Still Going

>I forgot to post yesterday…almost let today slip by because I was extremely busy working. Today was a great day; busy, hot, and seemingly long, but great. I went grocery shopping and picked up more fruit and veggies, yogurt, and a tasty salad mix (with lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, radishes, and bell peppers).

My two-a-day workouts have been going strong… once in the morning and once in the evening… even if it is late, like last night when I was up sweating and grunting at midnight!

Well I’m really tired…too tired to keep typing on here. Just wanted to share the latest, and let everyone know that I’m still doing great, hanging in there, and feeling incredible overall! I also want to remind you not to start this or any fast (or diet) without first consulting a medical professional! Please don’t rely on my results as credibility for you to risk your health and wellbeing. Have an incredible day and be a blessing to others.
