Although pancakes are associated with unhealthy food, you can have a healthier version of pancakes or waffles if you modify your recipe a bit. Instead of bleached flour, use oatmeal flour or even add rolled oats. I added 2 eggs, water and a little soy milk. Of course -no sugar and no butter. For topping, I used cottage cheese and fresh fruits. Tastes yummy and no guilty thoughts :)
I watched this amazing moon rising – truly pleasing moment. I hope you will like this video. Whenever you don’t feel well, have problems or can’t sleep at night – think of the most amazing sky you have seen. That should calm you down:)
Apparently, some sources say, you can burn as much as 160 calories in half hour in jumping on a trampoline! I believe it. After I had my own first session of training I can honestly say you can get a decent workout. For those who get bored fast, I suggest switching things up. As I mentioned in the video, instead of just jumping in the same manner, change your rhythm, incorporate some exercises like high jumps and squats to add intensity. After your legs and your body get stronger you will be able to jump for a little longer. Then you can challenge yourself with more difficult workout, like tabata style, where you jump for 20 seconds with a high intensity and bounce for 10 sec. 8 times. Anyway, no matter what you choose your workout will be – Have fun! Trampolines were designed for you to have a great time and stay active at the same time!
Do not underestimate grapefruits. Only one half of a medium pink grapefruit contains approximately 52 calories, 0 grams of fat, 0 grams of sodium, 0 grams of cholesterol, 13 grams of carbohydrates (including 8.5 grams of sugar and 2 grams of dietary fiber), and 1 gram of protein. Consuming one half of a fruit daily will satisfy 64% of your vitamin C needs, 28% of vitamin A, 2% of calcium, and 2% of magnesium.
Vitamin C and the antioxidant, when eaten fresh or applied to skin, can help to fight skin damage caused by the sun and pollution, reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone and texture. Also, grapefruits can help to deal or prevent constipation and promote regularity for a healthy digestive tract.
There are different theories when it comes to grapefruits and weight- loss. Some studies show fantastic results and credit grapefruits for transformation. However, other theories demonstrated that The grapefruit diets cause weight loss because they are low in calories, not because grapefruit has any magical properties. I personally agree with the low-calorie theory. One way or the other, grapefruits are healthy, so keep them in your menu!
We love celebrities! We appreciate their talent and the way they motivate us. Also, we admire their beautiful bodies! Often we say: “Gush, I want a body like that,” or ” I wish I had her legs,” or “man, I would kill for his abs.” It is undisputed that actors, models and singers have gorgeous bodies and clearly work very hard to have this amazing result. However, what you watch on television or see in magazines is not what you would see with a naked eye because pictures and videos are the product of many professionals and artists. So don’t be hard on yourself if you are not pleased with what you see in a mirror. You are just great the way you are!!!
I finally did it! This year we can motivate each other, and stay conected also on Facebook. I wish you all a happy, prosperous, and Fit 2015! Please join Fitappy on Facebook!
Yes, it is this time of a year when many search for improvements, so naturally we reflect on past and make new promises for the future, or create challenges, etc. My advise: If you think you will not live up to your new resolutions – don’t make them.
This New Year’s Day I went hiking. I only wish that 2015 will allow me to spend more time hiking with my daughter and that she will learn to enjoy it as much as I do.
Here is my newest video. After I had my baby girl I had to work very hard on getting back in shape – I still work on it :) I have a new approach towards fitness, rebuilding my body and regaining strength. The most challenging thing is finding time! Really. I can not afford one hour a day to exercise. Some day I will shoot a video and brag about this issue. Now, about this workout. It is not easy. However, it will deliver results if you work hard, challenge yourself and of course eat clean. Every time you perform this workout, it should be very challenging and the only way to accomplish that is by adjusting your weights by selecting heavy weights. Moreover, do not cheat yourself on plyometrics :) If you never worked with weights, start slow and build your way up. If you want great results, expect to a sweat a lot!
I apologize for the quality of this video. I am working on organizing a new space or a better light… Anyway, here is a video about controlling cravings! If you are one of those people who can not resist cravings – this video is for you. I hope you will find at least one tip that will work for you. I personally like waiting 15 minutes. Often I tell myself I will wait before I have another piece of chocolate, or a cookie. 15 minutes later I don’t want it anymore :) It works for me.
