Never heard this before? Learn it.
We all have different goals when it comes to fitness. Some of us just want to be healthy, some others care more about the aesthetics of a sculpted body. I always considered myself an average guy swimming between the two, and competing with my cousin Kendy (always beat me) in Dominican Republic.
I never really understood how come I would eat “healthy and balanced” and saw very little physical change in my overall body fat. Well, after years educating myself in various topics I became in an unplanned way super interested in learning more than what I found in magazines or just with my peers around. I went into books! Awesome idea! I have learned so much, that I can believe the progress I’ve done one week into a new exercise and nutrition plan, made specifically for me…
certainly abs are not made at the gym! I have lost 2 pounds in 5 days! damn, and my abs are showing and are tighter, and my energy levels are hyped…
Stay tuned for part 2, to learn more about this new journey of mine…
A single reason moves me toward my health and fitness goals: Family health history. Although I consider myself active for most of my life, few years ago I learned about the risk of genetics and hereditary deceases.
3 of my grand parents have died of Cancer and 3 of them have suffered of high blood pressure. The more I research about those deceases the more I learn about the benefits of having a healthy lifestyle that includes a well balanced diet and exercise.
People often reject the word “diet” because they automatically think they have to stop eating all the good food, but in reality diet is anything you eat, the difference is that you can either have a good or a bad diet.
Starting today I plan to use this blog as a journal to log my journey for fitness and health,

Healthy Election Night Cocktails
“Win, lose, or…drink? Whether you lean right or left, these beverages will help you celebrate (or drown your sorrows) without too much guilt.” —Kim Tranell
He may flip-flop on some of the other issues, but one thing Mr. Romney has made clear during this campaign: his love for sugar will never waiver. And with just a touch of cream and chocolate syrup, this non-alcoholic drink is designed to satisfy any sweet tooth…without too much dietary damage.
Known to order matching margaritas, this recipe captures the first couple’s commitment to healthy foodchoices—and Mr. Obama’s Hawaiian origins.
Definitely talking about candy is sad. I been struggling in a battle for staying healthy while indulging on sneakers, pop tarts for breakfast and chocolate something for dessert when I go out to eat. It’s definitely hard to stay on track to achieve my fitness goals.
This article published by Men’s Fitness magazine will make us feel better about the choices of candies we make this Halloween, HOORRAY!
Going back down to reality, we all know that sugar is not too good for us, for that reason I will put in my 2 cents and tell you what I been doing lately to try on curbing my sugar cravings. Number one option are nuts, all kind. Beside helping hunger they contain the good type of fat that our body need to function well. My other option are seasonal sweet fruits like cherries and other berries.
For now just take a look at this link and pick your favorites and best you! If you have time come back and tell me your pick. my pick is Dark Chocolate.
