Success Quote

"The process of succeeding can be seen as a series of trials in which your vision constantly guides you toward your target while in your actual performance you are regularly slightly off target. Success in any area requires constantly readjusting your behavior as the result of feedback from your experience."
 - Michael Gelb and Tony Buzan

 
Hot Fitness Tip of the week

Consistency is very important for an exercise routine to have the desired effect on our body. Getting started is the easy part, it is sticking to a regular exercise routine that is difficult and this is what makes most people give up in between. It is a universal fact that the most chosen time for work outs is the evenings. If you can stick to work out in the evenings then it is well and good. But most of us find ourselves exhausted in the evenings. We find ourselves physically and mentally drained. And at that time our bodies will be just too tired for a work out. The result is that after the first few days of working out, the interest just dwindles away. The other reason is that in the evenings a thousand and one things may crop up and then there is hardly time for a warm up. So it is best to set aside some time for exercise in the morning itself.

Secret to Success

If you can get up the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

Begin where you are, work where you are. The hour which you are now wasting, dreaming of some far off success, may be crowded with grand possibilities.

The first essential of success is that you begin. Once you have started, all that is within and without you will come to your assistance.

Do not wait. The time will never be "just right." Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you have at your command. Better tools will be found as you go along.

Eighty percent of success is showing up.

Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients:
2 cups -inch pieces of broccoli florets
2 or 3 scallions, trimmed and freshly chopped
1 cup finely chopped red onion
1 cup fresh bean sprouts
5 ounces peeled cooked shrimp, cut into -inch pieces (about 1 cups)
teaspoon toasted sesame oil
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 large eggs
4 large egg whites
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon cold water
1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 small garlic clove, minced
teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
teaspoon sugar
cup fat-free, reduced sodium chicken broth
Canola oil spray

Direction:
In a medium bowl, combine the broccoli, scallions, onion, bean sprouts, shrimp, sesame oil, and pepper. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, egg whites, and flour for about 2 minutes, until the lumps are almost gone. Pour this over the vegetable mixture, mix well with a fork, and set it aside.
Preheat the broiler.
In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch into the 1 tablespoon cold water to dissolve and place it near the stove. In a small pan, bring the soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger, sugar and broth to a boil over medium heat. Stir the cornstarch mixture, pour it into the hot liquid, and whisk 1 to 2 minutes, until the sauce is thick and translucent.
Coat a large, ovenproof, nonstick skillet with canola oil spray. Heat the skillet over medium-low heat. Stir the egg and vegetable mixture and pour it into the skillet, smoothing the mixture into an even layer. Cook for about 4 minutes, until the eggs are set and the bottom is browned. Place the skillet under the broiler for about 2 minutes, until the top is browned and the center is almost dry.
Loosen the frittata from the skillet with a spatula and slide it onto a serving dish. Cut the frittata into quarters and serve with the warm sauce spooned over the wedges.

Article of the Week

Jump Rope Workout

Jumping rope is a great cardiovascular exercise. It's one of the foundations of a boxer's conditioning program, and you've got to be in shape to box. The tennis champ Jimmy Connors used to skip rope as part of his conditioning routine.

Wear supportive cross-trainers, tennis or basketball shoes while skipping rope. Running shoes won't give you enough forefoot support and are not intended for bouncing on the balls of your feet. Avoid jumping on concrete, floors laid over concrete, and other hard surfaces like tile. If you don't have a springy wooden or carpeted floor, place a thin exercise mat on whatever surface you do have and jump on that.

Muscle Groups worked in a Jump Rope Workout
Jumping rope will seriously work every muscle in the body. I'm convinced that it will expose your weak links. After your first jump rope workout, you will be sore in many different parts of your body. Jumping rope will help you in your quest to get super-ripped abs. Your core really gets worked hard since you have to use your abs to stabilize your entire body to help you propel your body through the air.
