Ooohhh…workout advice!

This probably would have helped if I read it BEFORE my workout – but it’s pretty good stuff – check it out:

According to the ‘Greatist Daily’ – working out isn’t easy, but there are EASIER ways to get through a tough workout.

  1. SWITCH IT UP – with some circuit training to prevent boredom.  (Check!)
  2. Go from dreadmill to treadmill by RUNNING INTERVALS instead of slow and steady miles.
  3. Enlist a personal trainer or gym buddy to challenge you to work harder.  (Or start a blog and be forced to keep working out because you said you would and people are counting on you either fail or NOT fail.  Regardless, people are watching!)
  4. Work on form, especially when running, to get those feet moving with ease.
  5. Monitor heart rate & pace to serve as a distraction and motivate you to keep going.  (Or just do what I do and workout until you feel dizzy, take a break, and start again.)  😉

Lemon Water to the Rescue

I just read this article in Shape Magazine that states the following: 

Drink water with lemon:

You already know drinking water is good for your overall health, but fitness expert, celebrity trainer, and star of “Personal Training with Jackie: 30 Day Fast Start” Jackie Warner has a tip to take it up a notch in the weight-loss department. She recommends drinking 3 liters of water with lemon each and every day.

“Adding the lemon helps to detoxify the liver and metabolizes fat, so this can speed up metabolism by about 33 percent,” Warner says. “That burns about 100 extra calories per day!”
 

I don’t know about you – but I’m willing to throw a little lemon in my water and give it a shot!  🙂
