Use Social Media to Lose Pesky Pounds

 

Whether you can afford a trainer or a nutritionist, chances are you don’t have 24/7 access to them. Social media is a great way to find inspiration, healthy recipes, fitness routines, and great advice whenever you need it.  Having motivation at your fingertips is a great way to stay on track.

Social media gives you access to virtually unlimited information. It’s a great way to find healthy recipes that can help kick start your nutrition. Many cooking magazines offer free recipes on their websites and access to tons of advice about cooking. For quick nutrition tips, follow nutritionists, chefs, and fitness trainers that appeal to you. Pinterest is also a great site to find new recipes from all over. Not all the recipes on Pinterest are healthy so check nutrition information beforehand.

Are you getting bored with your fitness routine? Switching up your workouts is important, so your body doesn’t fall into a pattern and stop getting results. Social media allows you access to countless workouts and routines so keep your exercises fresh.  Check out fitness blogs that you like and subscribe to them to learn new workouts and advice. Pinterest and YouTube are perfect for this because they offer so many different genres of fitness to suit everyone. The benefit with YouTube is that you can watch the routines and become familiar before trying them out on your own.

If your looking for everyday motivation, and lets be honest, who isn’t, social media is a perfect outlet for it.

Top 4 Reasons You Should Workout All Year

 

 

As sad as it is, summer has come to an end and we are falling right into autumn. Most of you spend all winter and spring cranking away for that fabulous swimsuit body and now consider this time of year your break and “eating season”. Even though you’ll be bundled up and covered most of the season it’s still important to take care of that body. So here I have compiled the top reasons why exercising in the fall and winter are just as important as the spring and summer.

#1: Health

Keeping up good health isn’t seasonal. But, regular fitness and exercise can actually help ward off seasonal illnesses by boosting your immune system. Doctors have found that exercise can boost your immune system by providing a boost to the cells in your body that are assigned to attack bacteria. You don’t have to become a fitness guru to wreak the benefits. A daily walk can also get your immune system pumping.

#2: Holidays

Endless bags of candy, desserts, giant meals and alcohol. The holidays can take a toll on us all and have you starting the New Year with a few extra pounds around the middle. Stick to your regular fitness schedule and don’t over do it at every holiday get together. A good way to prevent overeating is to choose small servings and pick one dessert that you know you’ll enjoy. When it comes to Halloween candy…never stockpile the candy! The more you have just hanging around the harder it will be to keep temptations at bay. And whatever you do, don’t skip meals to save calories for dinner. Eat your regular daily meals and you won’t be famished and wind up eating far more.

#3: Get a jump start on your summer goals

The sooner you start the better you’ll look and feel. Instead of starting in the spring at full speed, try slowly pumping up your workouts for your summer bod. This way you won’t be overwhelmed and can gradually work up to a more intense working where you won’t be starting from scratch. And plus, you’ll look great all year round!

#4: Fend Off the Winter Blues

Get that blood flowing during those cold days too. Exercise can help reduce daily stress, which will ultimately boost your mood. The effects of a good workout can last for hours after you leave the gym. Physical activity releases feel-good brain chemicals, such as, endorphins, that can leave you with a feeling of overall happiness. Always be sure you are dressed in appropriate cold weather clothes during the extra cold days.
