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. Most people get on to a beautiful start. They buy track suits and gym-wear, running shoes and a whole lot of other gear. Their first day at the gym is almost a celebration. Then as the days go on, they find it increasingly difficult to meet the domestic and professional demands and so their routine slows down and finally comes to a complete workout burn out. In other words, the stop working out completely.

 
Words of Inspiration

Practice

 

Whatever you practice, you will become skilled at doing. Winning athletes practice day after day, month after month, to hone their skills. So do the best musicians, actors, salespeople, airline pilots, preachers, photographers, designers -- the list goes on and on.

What do you practice every day? Do you practice positive, success-oriented skills and actions? Or do you practice such skills as making excuses, getting angry, complaining, assigning blame, and procrastinating.

Remember, the more you practice, the more skilled you become. Every moment, you increase your experience in some area. The more you practice anything, the more it becomes a part of you. So be aware of what you practice each day, each moment. Make sure that what you practice, is what you want to become.

Top 10 Rules for Dining out

Many of us enjoy going out to eat. Unfortunately a number of people throw their 25 percent or less fat budget out of the window. Even worse, many eat unbalanced meals and/or binge when eating out. Some people will even skip breakfast and lunch to compensate for the extra calories they will consume when going out for dinner. By the time dinner rolls around, they are so hungry they make unwise choices and overeat.

Check out Top 10 rules for dining out:

1. First rule never, never, never go to a buffet. Life is tough enough without surrounding yourself with temptation. I don't care how committed you are, you will never have enough self-discipline to make it through an hour of this kind of torment. Stick with ordering from a menu.

2. Avoid restaurants with names like "The Keg" because just the thought of a keg of anything adds three inches to your waist.

3. Be sure to order what you really want when eating out. If you only order what you think you "should" rather than what you really want, you may be physically satisfied but not psychologically satisfied; you will most likely crave something more. If the meal is not enjoyable or satisfying, you may end up ordering a dessert (that you normally would not order) to fulfill your cravings. Remember, you can still eat the foods you love; just try to be creative and cut down on the fattening "extras" (butter, sour cream, etc.) that are not needed in order to enjoy the meal.
