sent for feature consideration
I admit to have fallen off the fitness wagon for few weeks. Work and personal matters left no room for zilla to sweat. Count the sweet tooth binge, I am not liking what I’m seeing. It’s not that I’m too hard-pressed to possess an enviable body but let me tell you, it’s not me to be a couch potato. I have always been active but there are moments when I’m not feeling the treadmill, let alone dance hip-hop, which by the way is my #1 exercise routine.
Walk the talk. Working with patients on a daily basis expose me to the realities of unhealthy lifestyle. Morbid obesity, hypertension, diabetes. Barring natural causes beyond one’s control, these conditions are all lifestyle-related. But see I rally their health. Whenever patients return with markedly improved blood pressure, controlled blood sugar and lost weight as a result of exercise and proper diet, I feel their happiness multifold. I reinforce their commitment which in turn motivates me to live by example. I talk, therefore I walk.
Fitness should be fun because that’s key to motivation. Choose activities that relate to you well. And remember, whether you’re butt-toning at the gym or at home, wearing the right apparel not only gives absolute support but adds to the whole motivation as well. Look good, feel good. Personally, I go for exercise clothing that’s stylish enough to wear to the street as I’m all about comfort without compromising pizzaz. This pair of digital camo legging by RBX Active is the perfect example. It doesn’t feel constricting, it wicks (pulls moisture away from the skin to keep body dry), lifts the butt and tucks tummy (my problem area). RBX apparel and accessories are sold in most department and sporting goods store, select online retailers and company website. For a limited time, RBX is offering 25% discount with code Active25 (valid today thru 7/31/15) including free shipping for purchases over $50.
I mentioned butt-toning, ‘thought I’d share few steps to firm yours. For each of these leg and squat exercises, do 100 times both ways. Rest in between. Repeat 3-4 cycles.
What motivates you, fitness-wise?
