Most of my friends have taken up a sport this year and most of them have turned into running. While their husbands are now competing in triathlons and have invested in bike racks, they have slowly but surely trained for 5k marathons with the intention of joining a triathlon in the future. I have seen quite some nice running shoes lately and I’d like to share them with you!
Newton Running shoes - natural running style shoes for mid-foot and forefoot striking… also, delightfully ridiculous bright colors.
New Balance – NB 890.
The Puma PUMAGILITY women’s running shoes are designed to handle your running and training needs at the gym. The shoe is a great mix of functionality and style because it forms a stable platform when you need it most while always looking the part. Midsole flex grooves enhance the flexibility of the shoe so you can focus on the task at hand.
I am sure 90% of women have “losing weight”, “eating healthier” and “giving up soda” as part of their resolutions at some point in their lives every new year. Here is a more graphic reason why one should really avoid soda. Maybe you can switch to crystal light if water really doesn’t appeal to you.
Each soda can has sugar cubes in front, representing how much sugar it contains – kinda eye-opening, if you ask me:
Every pregnant mother wants the best for their unborn baby and many pregnant women keep themselves armed with various pregnancy advice and information. Whether you are pregnant or not, good diet and exercise are ingredients for excellent womens health. This is even more important if you are pregnant. Your baby will be getting its nourishment from you so it is important eat foods that have high nutritional value.
Aside from this, many womens fitness website promotes exercise even during pregnancy. Although a check or consultation with your doctor is still necessary for any specific restrictions you may have, there are a lot of mild exercises that are usually okay for pregnant women. If you are itching to exercise even when you are at home, you can buy some exercise equipment. Below are some of these exercise equipment that are generally safe for use by most pregnant women.
· Treadmill. This equipment will let you do some walking safely inside your home. What is great about the treadmill is that you are not restricted by the weather conditions outside. Just make sure to keep it in a low setting so that you do not strain yourself.
· Stair steppers. Well if you have a flight of stairs at home, you will not even need this. But if not, this equipment will be great for keeping your legs in shape and in maintaining blood circulation.
· Exercise ball. Not only will this serve as excellent aids in exercising at home, they might also help you during your labor. Specifically look for pregnancy-specific birth balls because they often come with directions for pregnancy exercises.
· Elliptical. Just like the treadmill, this equipment will provide you with a low-impact exercise. Aside from this, it provides a full body workout.
I have read some very disturbing articles about how preservatives in our often-consumed foods are dangerous to our health in the long run. As someone who loves caffeinated soda, hotdogs, canned foods and lives on microwavable meals when I was working, this scared me. Packaging methods are not that great either. The methods used today remove nutritional value from the food causing them to become even unhealthier.
I researched a lot about this and found that going organic is not as hard and as expensive as people thought it is. Organic Food Online stores offer a variety of products at affordable prices. Detox Diets for Weight Loss are available too.
We also need to support organic farmers. These farmers shy from using any artificial means of growing plants and raising livestock. They recognize that natural is better. In fact, more farmers are shifting to organic produce as the population is growing more aware of the dangers of pesticides and artificial fertilizers. Though still pricier than the rest, the benefits to your health are worth it.
Natural Health and Beauty seems to come easier too, when you consume products not touched by pesticides and grown naturally.
To keep a healthy life, aside from going organic products, one should also focus on plant-based vegetables and fruits instead of the rice and other grains that contain high carbohydrates. Food supplement may also help you complete your diet.
Not everyone loves the basics of Thanksgiving dinners like turkey and cranberry dressing, so when I fix the meal I like to make lots of different side dishes and things so that there are lots of options for people to eat. Plus, most of the time people go to more than one Thanksgiving meal and that way I get to have more options for leftovers over the next few days after the big meal.
I was looking up recipes for what I wanted to fix on some food and recipe blogs and web sites with my HughesNet and started to get really excited about cooking the Thanksgiving meal.
I decided that what I wanted to do was fix a Thanksgiving ham instead of a turkey this year. I normally fix both for everybody, but then when I do that a lot more people eat the ham than the turkey. I just think that will be more worth my time and cut down on the cooking prep time if I don’t have to cook a turkey.
I have decided to give running a try again. Ten years ago, I used to run track but things got busier and it was just easier if I just let go of running.
Ten years later and XXX lbs heavier, I need to take drastic action to lose weight before U hit the big 3-0. It is too bad that I have big size 11 feet, flat footed and have a tendency to overpronate my heels. Since I could not find anything in the city that I like and will fit me (hence, men’s running shoes are out of the question), I ordered it online. I went through the Nike “What’s your perfect shoe?” test and Lunar Glide+ came among the top 5. It was the nicest I saw among the five (Of course, style would always count) so it was a done deal.
For now I am going to make do with my fake sneakers while I wait for this baby to come home. It’s a good thing we have two ipods to choose from so that if ever I decide to give the Nike Sensor running kit a try, it would be easier to track my miles.
Please say a little prayer that I do this. I did a test and if I just be consistent and lose two lbs a week, I’m going to be in my ideal weight by January next year, just in time for my birthday celebration at the beach!
