Can't someone else like me train without music ?!
There are times when I realize that I don't have my headphones on and come back to pick them up… or I cry in the corner of the gym.
Just kidding around crying… maybe.
You all know I love my headphones from my friends to Aftershokz! They have been a mainstay not only in our freebies every year, but also in my gym bag.
Unlike traditional headphones, Aftershokz uses bone conduction technology by sending mini vibrations through the cheekbones and bypassing the eardrums.
Since these are open ear headphones, they are also PERFECT for runners!
I personally LOVE using their new Aeropex headphones when I take Kita for a walk because I can listen to my favorite podcasts while keeping my ears slightly exposed to know what's going on around me.
With 8 hours of battery life and being waterproof, you can enjoy music, calls, audiobooks, and podcasts all day.
My friends from Aftershokz donate a pair of their Aeropex headphones to a lucky winner and you WANT TO these in your gym bag !! (Value of $ 165)
Thank you Aftershokz and have a nice holiday!
Be true to you,

‘How can I lose belly fat ? ’ pulls up over two million hits on Google. It’s a hot topic that goes beyond wanting to improve appearance. A larger waist measurement can mean that you have too much visceral fat. This is the fat stored around internal organs like your liver and pancreas, which is commonly referred to as ‘belly fat’.
It’s true that as we get older, we need less kcal to keep our body sérieux well. Changes to our hormones during this time mean that we start to lose muscle and gain fat. This makes it harder to keep to a healthy weight but that’s not to say it’s impossible. In fact, people who are aged 65 and over are healthier than their ancestors and are living longer.
Although you can’t escape the ageing process, when it comes to managing your weight, there are other factors that are within your control. These include your lifestyle vêtements, choices and behaviours ( especially around diet ) and how réactive you are.
Protein can be a helpful way to lose weight because it makes you feel fuller than carbs and fat do. So if you include a lean source of protein, such as skinless white chicken, in your meals you may find that you’re not as hungry, and so eat less.
Make sure you include protein with each meal. Good sources include chicken breast, tuna, mackerel, salmon, eggs, milk, red lentils, chickpeas, brown bread, nuts and soya. And remember that a portion of protein is about as big as the palm of your hand.
Go for foods that are rich in protein and low in fat ( known as lean protein sources ) as some sources of protein can be high in saturated fat. Alternatively, there are lots of protein products on the market, such as supplements and powders, but if you decide to use these make sure you have a trained sports dietitian or nutritionist supervising your diet.
Any form of exercise for at least 30 minutes a day is good for you. Use every opportunity to become fit whether you are at home, at work or with friends. This could include cycling to work or getting off the bus or train one or two stops early.
But combining resistance ( strength ) exercise and cardiovascular exercise is ideal. Resistance exercises are a great way of helping you to maintain your muscle mass and your glucose metabolism ( the way your body processes sugar and uses it for fuel ), which are important for managing your weight. Resistance training has also been shown to reduce fat around your tummy area.
But, if you’re able and would like a boost for your exercise regime, I’d really recommend you do high intensity interval training ( or hiit for bermuda ). This will really get your heart rate up and burn the fat. hiit basically means that you go all out for a short burst, followed by a lower-intensity exercise or rest – and then repeat. This form of training is good for people with very busy lifestyles as they can get similar health benefits in a shorter duration of time.
A few small changes in your lifestyle can make a big difference and reduce your waist circumference. So, reduce your portion sizes, cut out sweet treats and alcohol, meet recommended guidelines for exercise, and increase your intake of fruit and veg. In addition, strength training exercises are recommended at least twice a week.
Using smaller plates can help you eat smaller portions. By using smaller plates and bowls, you may be able to gradually get used to eating smaller portions without going hungry. It takes about 20 minutes for the stomach to tell the brain it’s full, so eat slowly and stop eating before you feel full.
to avoid temptation, do not stock mauvais choix de nourriture – such as chocolate, biscuits, crisps and sweet fizzy drinks – at home. Instead, opt for saine snacks, such as fruit, unsalted rice cakes, oat cakes, unsalted or unsweetened popcorn, and fruit juice.
Try to plan your breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for the week, making sure you stick to your calorie allowance. You may find it helpful to make a weekly de course list.
If you’re anything like me, you likely want to lose weight and get a flatter stomach to make your pants feel looser and boost your confidence in a bathing suit.

Even if you eat well and exercise, stressing out can prevent your stomach from deflating. Why ? Stress increases levels of the hormone cortisol, which increases appetite and fat storage—not what you want when you’re looking to get six-pack abs. Next time your stress levels go through the roof, brew a bocal of black tea. Research has found that the beverage can increase the rate at which your body brings its cortisol levels back to normal, helping you skinny down. Here are 15 Easy Ways to Lower Cortisol Levels so You Don’t Feel as Stressed.
Having good posture can help you look slimmer in seconds. Plus, it can also strengthen your stomach groupes de muscles, giving you that long, lean look you crave. Whether you’re sitting, standing, or walking, be sure you’re staying as upright as possible.
