Health And Fitness-Mental Health-Btw

Hi I was hoping you could help me. I normally work out every day in some form (walking, yoga, etc) and eat pretty healthy. But these past 2 weeks I've done maybe one workout and been eating TERRIBLY (binge eating mainly). It's just taken a turn for the worse and I feel so hopeless and useless. I just can't get back into the swing of things with my health and fitness. Any advice or help please? I'm

Hello! Hmm.. I say just push yourself into it. When you are going to bed one night, get things ready for going to work out in the morning and go to bed with the mind set that you are going to work out when you wake up. That’s worked for me before. Then if you don’t feel like it, just do it anyway. That is just one workout, and that one could get you back into the groove. I think kicking yourself back into exercise will help you with your eating habits. Just buy all the good foods that you can. If you feel like a binge is coming on, do it on something good. Watermelon, grapes, strawberries, etc. That might help to eliminate the binge habit and get you back on track. Also, lots of fitness blogs! Just look at all of the photos of toned bodies doing workouts and tell yourself that is going to be you.I really hope this helped. I don’t think I’m all that great at answering these kinda of questions but I try! read more..

Please, Please, Please-Vigorous Exercise-Bikram Yoga-Hot Yoga

bikram yoga is not what you may think it is...

bikram Yoga is not what you may think it is...: melindavee:for all of you who practice bikram yoga please, please, please read this article“The function of sweat is to cool your body down when it is overheated. This can happen during a vigorous exercise session (such as hot yoga) or by 9 a.m. on an August morning in the Bayou City. The cause of the sweat does not significantly affect its content, which is primarily water with traces of minerals, though not enough to merit the term detoxification.” read more..

Upper Body-Shoulders-Muscle

Do you think yoga has helped you build some muscle? As in your upper body (arms, back, shoulders, etc.)?

Yeah, a bit but not as much as actually working out has…. which is still not very much. Right now I’m in a funk and not really doing any exercise (ugh :/), but when I did yoga regularly, I worked more on my flexibility than anything and would work out for the muscle. read more..

Upper Body Strength-Flexibility-Pose

So i dont have a lot of upper body strength and im trying to change this, also i can do the wheel and was wondering what is a safe way to learn how to do it and also get back flexability to adventually also do the spcorpion i think its called, thanx love xx

My favorite pose for back flexibility is camel pose. If you can’t touch your heels without pain, just hold your hands on your back and hips and go as far as you can until you can go further, possibly during your next practice. When you come out of it, come out slow and do cat and cow pose after to stretch your back out a bit more. Cobra and upward facing dog are also two poses that will help gain a bit of back flexibility. A safe way to practice the wheel… once you get more flexibility, that pose will become easier. Just take it slowly. I think you can use yoga blocks as well for that pose!Push ups (girl push ups are fine, of course), tricep dips, and working with weights are some things that will help you gain upper body strength. Of course, you will also need core strength for inversions. Start off practicing forearm stands against the wall. That will help you gain a bit of strength as well, and will definitely help with balance. Once you have more back flexibility, you can try scorpion against the wall and continue to progress from there.I hope this helps! (: read more..

Progress Photos-Vegan Diet-Yoga

can you link your progress photos? :) also i have been on an organic vegan diet for a month or two and have been practicing yoga and working out 2-3 times a week, how long do you think it will take to start seeing results? im about 115 pounds.

I cannnnn if you message me non-anon for the link!I’m not sure what kind of results you would like to be seeing, muscle gain/get more tone or fat loss. Assuming you mean muscle, since you’re not at a high weight, it depends on how long and how hard you work out and what exactly you do when you are doing Yoga and working out. It’s all different for everyone, we all have different bodies and body types, so I couldn’t really tell you. I can say that you seem to be doing quite good! Just keep it up and be patient, you will see results. Take progress photos and compare, you will definitely see them more than you would be seeing yourself daily. (: read more..

Aerobic Exercise-Cardio Workout-Calorie Burner-Calorie Count

Exercise during your period

Even experts against a hardcore workout on your period have to agree that a walk gets you moving without injury or danger. So, put on some sneakers and sunblock, and hit the road. Walking by itself isn’t a huge calorie burner, but you will feel good about the fact that you exercised. Don’t stress the exact calorie count.
If you’re feeling up for a jog, go for it. The endorphins you release during an intesnse cardio workout can help you beat the period ickies that you may be feeling. Hydrate well before, after and during your run, if possible; some researchers say you dehydrate more easily on your period. Whether that’s true or not, err on the side of safety and keep drinking.Yoga
Yoga is very customizable; many poses have options to match your skill level. Inversions aren’t recommended during your period, although this has no definitive medical basis. Still, having the option to relax in the goddess position if you’re not up for a headstand is nice.Aerobics
Sometimes, when you’re on your period, you just want to go a little crazy. Aerobic exercise is the perfect way to let loose. Plus, aerobics classes are typically held in a low-pressure environment where the focus is on fun.Dancing
Shaking it up on the dance floor isn’t exercise in the traditional sense, but it will rev your heart rate and burn some calories. This is a great option because it doesn’t feel like exercise — and when you’re on your period, you might need a little motivation to get gussied up and feel great about who you are. Stepping out into an evening of dancing and fun will certainly give you that extra oomph and make you feel fabulous.Planking
When it’s that time of the month, all you want to do is stay home and watch Lifetime movies. Make the most of your TV time by holding a plank position during the commercials:
    Get down on the floor.
    Put your arms and elbows under your chest.
    Raise your body using just your forearms and toes, and hold.
This is an intense all-over workout. Start by holding your plank during every other commercial and work up to holding through an entire commercial break.Working out from home
Pop in an exercise DVD. You don’t need to dress in fancy workout gear, and quitting early won’t be embarrassing if you’re just doing it in your living room.
Don’t use your period as an excuse to forget your fitness routine - but do listen to your body if you need a break from it. read more..
