ABS ARE MADE IN THE KITCHEN, not the in the gym! Part 1

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…

Fitness for Life

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,

The Best & Worst Halloween Candies

CONFESSION: I’M ADDICTED TO SUGAR!

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.

FORGIVENESS

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.”
Mark Twain

“Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.”
Bruce Lee

“Forgiveness is the final form of love.”
Reinhold Niebuhr

Tonight while I was on treadmill burning off some calories I was listening to a broadcast from the library of congress about blogging and social media and the power of FORGIVENESS came across unexpectedly, I thought it would be interesting finding more about it. while going through one of my favorite quote sites, brainy quote I found exactly what I thought: Forgiveness is possible but forgetting is not. I personally think that what Calle 13 says is perfectly fine: “Perdono pero nunca olvido”. I think that remembering keep us human and grounded and help us correct what’s wrong.

It would be great if you can tell me your opinion below….
