I am a foodie and can not lie.

You also know that I do my best to eat the right things. According Men’s fitness magazine I am doing just fine: sweet potatoes, salmon, almonds, spinach (baby for me), blue berries, and some more… I think they missed white fish like tilapia, but everything is pretty good and easy to cook and it…

ABS ARE MADE IN THE KITCHEN, not the in the gym! Part 2

Eating the right amount is as important as eating healthy food.
Goals: When it comes to be healthy and in optimal physical form we have to set goals. To set goals first you need to know where you are standing at, you have to decide if you want to lose weight, gain weight, or simply maintain your actual shape.

Learning to count calories is super important to help you have faster and concrete results.

I have been keeping track of my caloric intake for about 3 weeks now and the change is incredible.

I plan to post my progress photos at the end of week 4, for now visit Mike Matthews page at http://www.muscleforlife.com/ if you want to learn how to do what I am doing.

Lift – Don’t Talk!

Lift - Don't Talk!

How many of you agree that some people talk beyond need at the GYM?

The first thing I do when i am ready to head out to the gym is to make sure that my headphones are in my bag!

Music keeps me away from unwanted distractions and side conversations… when I workout with someone I will keep my headphones on ad do sign language… very little talk if needed.

Do the same and stay focused… visit my website and check my new tank tops for the summer…

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.
