My 6 Steps To Getting Bikini-Ready In A Week

IS3A5301-Edit

Summertime means lots of days in bikinis and swimsuits by the pool or beach. I always try to stay bikini ready all summer, but when going on vacation knowing I will be without my regular fitness rutine and in a bikini all day, it’s time to really get it together. When I want to look my best in a swimsuit I have a few tricks I follow that totally help. These 5 things are what I do a week before a beach vacation to feel and look my best.

  1. NEVER Skip Breakfast. It will only slow your metabolism.

Last summer I was making fresh pressed juice every morning with fruits and vegetables and protein powder. This summer I haven’t really been doing that. Now I drink a healthy drink called Estrogenomics from Poliquin and I ad some L-Glutamine. It is a blend of pea protein concentrate, pea protein isolate, glycine, taurine, rice protein concentrate, and L-glutamine, dried cane syrup, fiber complex, oat fiber, cocoa powder, sunflower oil, bioactive immunoglobulin, plant enzyme and broccoli seed extract, I didn’t even mention all the ingredient’s because I don’t know what half of them do.. haha 😉 But I know it’s good for you – and my body feels good when I drink it. I always ad extra L-glutamine to my shake – you can order it HERE 😉 and HERE – This drink will give you a boost of vital minerals and vitamins you need for an overall good health and strong gut, your immunity will become stronger and you won’t get sick very often. L-glutamine promotes good recovery after a gym session and lots of other stuff.

After my shake I will eat a banan and then go for my fasted cardio rutine, which means my little morning run without a real breakfast.

I will burn pure fat IF I keep my pace at a jogging level, if you start sprinting you will start burning muscles because you didn’t eat a solid breakfast, so I wouldn’t recommend that. After my 20-25 min run it is time for a real breakfast – I eat 3- 4 eggs and cook it in different ways with vegs, rice or what ever I have in my fridge – Before a vacation I will probably skib the rice to become more lean.

2. I will always recommend loosing weight by changing your lifestyle eating healthy and exercising. But if you need a quick boost Iduva is a dietary supplement that can help you loose weight fast, and give you a good head start. Maybe you have been eating too many ice creams this summer and want to slim down quickly before your vacca. Iduva has weight-loss shakes and bars. Right now you can buy it with 20 % off the normal price, this discount will be available until Monday 15/8 go get your supplements now. click HERE and you will go straight to Iduva’s discount.

3. Don’t eat 3 hours before you go to bed. I always want to eat a snack before bedtime, if I have wild cravings I will eat 1 peace of raw chocolate and drink another breakfast shake. On normal occasions I will usually eat something and not be a fanatic 😀

4. Get those workouts done, visit the gym and workout. Train like it is your last summer on earth. I seriously rip myself apart in the gym – no joke, people will be looking at me like i’m nuts, sweat dripping everywhere, tomato red face, terminator mood and ready to pass out after each set.. Go all GI Jane style, cos I know you want that bikini body! 😉

5. Eat as clean as possible, especially when it comes to snacks. I will swap my beloved crisps for nuts or fruits instead! Super boring yes, but it is only 1 week before your vacca.

6. Kick up your water intake big time and drink lots of green teas. It really is the ekstra step that makes my tummy look flatter.

Do You Want To Get Serious About Fitness? You don’t need a gym. This article is addressed to the people who struggle, who don’t go as much as they think they should, who aren’t as fit as they’d like.

Some people go to the gym all the time. Good for them. This article is addressed to the people who struggle, who don’t go as much as they think they should, who aren’t as fit as they’d like.

Going to the gym is hard. You have to pack a gym bag. You have to go there. You have to change when you get there. You have to change and get home. All that and you’re paying every month for a membership.

The thing is, you don’t need a gym to get in good shape.

At-home fitness for the winners

There’s a reason you hear so much about interval training.

Short, intense periods of exercise are highly effective in boosting health, possibly more effective than long sessions of exercise. All you really need to get in shape is a short, well-designed workout routine.

The most famous is the 7-minute workout routine  All you do is 30 seconds of each of these exercises, with 10-second breaks: Jumping jacks; wall sits; push-ups; crunches; step-up (on chair); squats; triceps dips (on chair); planks; high knees / running in place; lunges; push-ups and rotations; side planks. If you aren’t sure how the different exercises are carried out, don’t worry they are very simple movements. Go on youtube and write the exercise you are in doubt about – a 100 video’s will appear and show you the correct movement.

Not feeling that? The four-minute Tabata workout and a 12-minute workout, that alternates high-effort bursts with easy jogs have also been shown to be extremely effective. There are others popping up every day. Creative types might even invent their own.

What else can you do?

Simply running for five-to-ten minutes every day has been shown to give a major boost to your health. If running isn’t your style, five minutes of jumping rope, vigorously riding a bike, or really any activity that causes you to break a sweat will make a difference.

Me? I live near the beach. Why on earth would I run in a gym basement on a treadmill when I can run on the beach? Because I am one of the gym fanatic’s we hate. haha..;) I use the treadmill before I work out with weights in the gym, but that doesn’t mean you have to do it, there are endless alternatives, you don’t have to run inside on a boring treadmill.

Other ways I’ll look to get exercise include self-guided stretching, I am a HUGE fan of Yoga – I always end my workouts with some good long yoga stretches, riding a bike, taking the stairs when possible, signing up for the office sports team, and kicking a soccer ball in the park. When I am a good girl, I join one yoga class a week, it is conditioner for my body soul and mind. I’m also looking forward to doing more with a kettle bell, I used it a lot when I took the PT education in London. My teachers in london were Kettle bell fans.

Interval training, running, kettle bell, yoga, bike, stairs, sports — who needs a gym membership when you have all of that? (Competitive athletes, fitness junkies, body builders, and various people who for some reason find it convenient to go to the gym I am one of them. But you can get amazing workouts without the gym especially now, when its summer use the beach and parks – or anywhere. On my last trip to Las Vegas I did yoga on the airplane in the hallway, I am a little nuts – but sitting down for so many hours made me restless so I did some static yoga poses that got my blood flowing)

Not having a gym membership has other advantages. It gives you the flexibility to take the occasional class wherever you want. Try that boxing studio near work, make Saturday a yoga day, take a dance class. I can imagine It’s easier when you don’t have gym guilt holding you back.

Another great tip is to force yourself to get a bigger interest in health and fitness, by reading some basic facts you will get more motivation and curiosity, and try out some workout routines and healthy foods.

6 things to do if you want to become a morning gym person ;)

Im not a morning person.

I would sleep in until 11 a.m. every day.

Born out of frustration with myself for sometimes skipping the gym and going for a run, because it’s quicker and easier. I decided I’d go to the gym in the morning so I’d have no more excuses.

How hard could it be?

Turns out, very. Here are six things to try if you want to go to the gym in the morning.

1. Prepare everything the night before

Before I go to bed, I pack everything I want to wear the next day in my gym bag and lay out my exercise clothes and sneakers to wear the next morning.

Packing away my gym outfit forces me to take the extra step of removing it from my gym bag if I don’t make it to the gym. It’s a small step that’s just annoying enough to incentivize me to just throw on my workout gear and head to the gym.

Plus, if you already know what you’re going to wear the next day, it will save you time rummaging through your closet.

2. Set your alarm for earlier than you need to wake up

I’m convinced sleeping in and snoozing your alarm is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Because I know that it takes me about two tries before I actually get out of bed, I set my alarm even earlier than I need to so I still feel like I’m sleeping in.

Crowded New York subwayIf I can skip the morning rush, I’m happy.

Though I realize that it’s not technically sleeping in if you’re still waking up at the right time, I find I can lie to myself more easily when I’m drowsy in the morning and feel like I’m still getting some extra shut eye.

3. Find your motivation

Going to the gym every day is all about finding the right motivation. For some people, that might be trying to hit a goal weight, fit into a certain item of clothing, or look great naked. For me it’s looking great naked hahaha 😉

The gym I go to is a few blocks away from my home. It makes it very easy for me to reach it, I can walk or run there.

Whenever I’m feeling really unmotivated, I think about the feeling I have after I went to the gym. I feel AMAZING!!

4. Drink a lot of water

As soon as I wake up, the first thing I do is DRINKING as much water as I can. Not only has it been shown to have a lot of great health benefits, like jumpstarting your metabolism, but it also energizes me almost as much as cup of coffee in the morning.

Plus if you’re going to go work out, you should be hydrated.

5. Eat something

eggs with toast breakfastI eat eggs and some fruit maybe rice if i am doing weights, so I am sure I have enough energy. if I am doing cardio only, I eat fruits.

While some people wake up starving in the morning, I’m not one of them. Still, I find I workout much more effectively if I have something to eat before going to the gym.

Lately, I’ve been grabbing fruits like a banana or an apple before my cardio session, but any sort of fuel will do the trick.

6. Remember you just have to show up

The thing I tell myself as I’m dragging my feet out the door every day is that I just have to show up. Simply by touching my feet to the treadmill, I will have been successful. I don’t even have to go for a run if I don’t want to.

Once I get to the gym, I realize how easy it would be to start running. I mean, the treadmill is right there. And after a run, I could go shower immediately, but the weights are close by — why not lift for a little bit as long as I’m here?

It turns out, showing up really is half the battle in the morning.

256 Years Old Man Breaks The Silence Before His Death And Reveals SHOCKING Secrets To The World

What is the longest a person has ever lived for? Meet Li Ching Yuen, a man who lived an astonishing 256 years!  And no, this is not a myth or a fictional tale.

According to a 1930 New York Times article, Wu Chung-chieh, a professor of the Chengdu University, discovered Imperial Chinese government records from 1827 congratulating Li Ching-Yuen on his 150th birthday,  and further documents later congratulating him on his 200th birthday in 1877. In 1928, a New York Times correspondent wrote that many of the old men in Li’s neighborhood asserted that their grandfathers knew him when they were boys, and that he at that time was a grown man.

Li Ching Yuen reportedly began his herbalist career at the age of 10, where he gathered herbs in mountain ranges and learned of their potency for longevity. For almost 40 years, he survived on a diet of herbs such as lingzhi, goji berry, wild ginseng, he shoo wu and gotu kola and rice wine. In 1749, at the age of 71, he joined the Chinese armies as teacher of martial arts.  Li was said to be a much-loved figure in his community, marrying 23 times and fathering over 200 children.

According to the generally accepted tales told in his province, Li was able to read and write as a child, and by his tenth birthday had traveled in Kansu, Shansi, Tibet, Annam, Siam and Manchuria gathering herbs. For the first hundred years he continued at this occupation. Then he switched to selling herbs gathered by others. He sold lingzhigoji berry, wild ginsenghe shou wu and gotu kola along with other Chinese herbs, and lived off a diet of these herbs and rice wine.

HE WASN’T THE ONLY ONE

According to one of Li’s disciples, he had once encountered an even older 500-year-old man, who taught him Qigong exercises and dietary recommendations that would help him extend his lifespan to superhuman proportions. Apart from Qigong and a herb-rich diet, what else can we learn from this Master of Longevity?

How about this: On his death bed, Li famously said, “I have done all that I have to do in this world”. Could his peaceful last words also hint at one of the biggest secrets to a long and prosperous life? It’s interesting to note that in the West, we’re often taught to believe that aging is something that must be “beaten” with high tech infrared devices and state of the art medication.

HIS SECRET TO LONG HEALTH:

Li was asked what his secret was to longevity. This was his reply: “Keep a quiet heart, sit like a tortoise, walk sprightly like a pigeon and sleep like a dog.” These were the words of advice Li gave to Wu Pei-fu, the warlord, who took Li into his house to learn the secret of extremely long life.

Li maintained that inward calm and peace of mind combined with breathing techniques were the secrets to incredible longevity. Obviously, his diet would have played a large role. But its fascinating that the old living person in recorded history attributes his long life to his state of mind.

WHY IS THIS SO HARD TO BELIEVE?

With the average lifespan for the Western world currently sitting between 70-85 years, the thought of someone living over 100 years old seems like quite the stretch. The thought of someone living over 200 years old seems extremely suspicious. But why don’t we believe that people can live this long?

We have to keep in mind that some people in this world don’t live a grueling 9-5 lifestyle, they don’t have to deal with the stresses of debt, they aren’t breathing polluted city air, and they exercise regularly. They don’t eat refined sugars or flour, or any foods that have had pesticides sprayed on them. They aren’t living off of the standard American diet.

They aren’t eating fatty meats, sugary deserts, and genetically modified foods. No antibiotics. No alcohol and no tobacco. Their diets not only exclude junk foods that we so often indulge in, they also include superfoods and herbs which are like steroids for our organs and immune system.

They also spend their spare time in nature practicing breathing techniques and meditating which have been proven to improve mental, physical, and emotional health. They keep things simple, get proper sleep, and spend a great deal of time in nature under the sun. When we get a chance to relax in the sun, we feel instantly rejuvenated and call this a “vacation”. Imagine spending a lifetime doing that in the mountains, and combining that with perfect mental, spiritual, and physical well-being.

I do not doubt for a minute that if we all did the things we knew we were supposed to do, that living to be 100 years old would be commonplace. When we treat our bodies right, who knows how long we can live for?

 

 

Blog Advice ;)

I feel inspired at night or when evening is approaching. When everything is quite around me and I can reflect on my day and the experiences I had.

A good idea is to write down you thoughts straight away, don’t wait.

When you have a thought you would like to share on your blog, think it thru and write it down before you change your mind or get a new idea.

Sometimes I write just before I sleep. I get so many different thoughts and ideas.

Find out what works best for you.

I need time alone to get my thoughts flowing and I use different experiences, peoples impulses and energy to create something I would like to share.

Your mind can produce something great, if let it run free and give yourself a chance to be creative.

Good Luck!!! 😀
