TIPS TO STAY MOTIVATED

TIPS TO STAY MOTIVATED

When you’re starting any new fitness program, it can be hard to stay motivated.

We’ve all been there – it’s the New Year, you have an event looming in the future, like a reunion or wedding, or you just want to get in shape and feel better about your body. You start off eager and motivated – this is the time you’re really going to do it, and you’ll stick to your program, eat right, work out every day, and be healthy.

And then you remember that this workout stuff is hard. It takes time, dedication, and commitment, and it can be disappointing not to see the results you want right away. Once you realise that this is a long term commitment, and it’s going to take a lot of time and effort, it’s perfectly normal for your motivation to wane significantly, and you’re less likely to continue with that gung-ho, early week effort, which slows the appearance of results even further, making it harder still to stay motivated. That’s perfectly normal – it’s just human nature. However, whether your fitness goals are to increase muscle mass through bodybuilding, to lose weight and tone through regular workouts, or just to get healthy, here are some tips to help you stay motivated on your fitness journey.

DON’T THINK OF IT AS EXERCISE – MAKE IT FUN!

If your focus is bodybuilding, vary your routine – not just alternating leg and shoulder days, but find a variety of exercises to work each muscle group so you don’t get stuck in a rut. If you enjoy cardio, find activities you enjoy that build strength and endurance – it doesn’t always have to be at a gym. Things like roller skating or trampolining are a great total body workout and seem more like play than working out.

DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP!

If you slip up and cheat on your diet, miss a few days working out, or just aren’t seeing the results that you want, give yourself a break. If you have an “all is lost” mentality, you’ll never reach your goals, but if you allow yourself some wiggle room, kindness, and understanding, you’ll be able to stick to your plan for a longer period of time, rather than giving up because you didn’t adhere to your diet and exercise regime perfectly. It’s all about finding balance, which will then allow you to shift into a healthier lifestyle in the long-run, and thus achieve the results that you want.

BEST AND WORST FOODS FOR YOUR SKIN

BEST AND WORST FOODS FOR YOUR SKIN

Have you been having break outs lately? Wondering about the cause of your bad skin? Never fear!  We’re here to look at some of the best and worst foods for your skin. Whether you fighting that everyday battle with black heads or trying to oust that oily build up, we’ve got the list to help with your journey to fresh, younger looking skin.

 

Great Food for Skin Health

Pomegranates are great for the skin because they’re rich in Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a major component in your body’s production of collagen. Having a diet rich in vitamin C will promote skin health as well as leave your face with a natural healthy firmness. As an added bonus, pomegranate seeds can be crushed and are a wonderful exfoliate for your skin.

Soy has proven itself to be one of the best foods for skin and beauty. Soy is rich with Omega 3’s and high in protein. Soy is the most used component in beauty products when promising fresh, healthy looking skin. Soy, like walnuts, is found in many hair and body products. This is because soy is a natural body cleanser. It has the ability remove toxins from the body as well as create healthy, younger looking skin! Friendly tip; watch out for processed soy as it carries far fewer benefits than regular soy.

Walnuts are a great source of vitamins and help promote skin health in two ways! Walnuts oil is highly sought after in the beauty industry because of its applications to hair and body moisturisers. This little nut has been proven to soften skin as well as bring out a healthy glow. Eating walnuts on a regular basis provides a regular source of potassium and omegas to help with healthy, vibrant hair.

Terrible Food for Skin Health

BBQ.  Could this be the cause of your break out over the long Weekend?  Scientists have found that foods, raised to a certain temperature, could be creating something called “advanced glycation end products.” Foods like potato chips, fried chicken and French fries could be leading to oxidative stress and inflammation. Scientists have linked these causes with older, ruddier looking skin.

Milk doesn’t seem that bad of a food but could be ruining your skin. Artificial hormones as well as other nutrients found in milk could be driving up your skin’s oil production. Scientists have found a link between certain chemicals found in milk and the skin’s natural production of oil. If you have oily skin, milk might be the answer to why you’re having so many break outs.

And Finally, we all enjoy them but what impact are our sugary drinks having on our skin? The answer is a lot! When you ingest high amounts of sugar your body breaks it down to glucose. This automatically raises the amount of insulin in your body and can cause inflammation. Do you often have red, swollen or blotchy areas of skin? This could be caused by an excess of sugar in your diet! Sugar has been deemed the worst possible thing for your skin. Stay away from it!
