I hated how I felt, how I looked, and I constantly felt as if I was being judged any time that … Read the rest

5 Tips for Sticking to a Healthy Lifestyle

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle doesn’t necessarily require making a slew of huge 180-degree lifestyle changes.

In fact, with a few common-sense behaviors, you can create a healthy, sustainable relationship with food and eating that can last a lifetime.

Here are five easy tips to get (and keep!) you on track.

1. Put Your Goal On the Calendar

Setting timely and specific goals is one of the most effective tips to stay committed to a healthy lifestyle.

When it comes to weight loss, people tend to set open-ended goals like, “I want to lose 10 pounds…eventually.”

But when faced with a plate of chocolate cookies at work, having such a general goal makes it too easy to say, “Ehh, it’s okay, I can just eat a couple.”

So, if your goal is to lose 10 pounds, then set a specific end date to help you stay on track whenever temptations or … Read the rest

What’s Your Shakeology Horoscope?

It’s Mercury in retrograde!‘ — says everyone when anything goes wrong.

How to Cross-Train With Beachbody On Demand Workouts

If you want to become good at something, it makes sense to do it as much as possible.

Running makes you better at running. Cycling makes you better at cycling. And swimming makes you better at swimming.

But here’s the thing: Occasionally doing something different can make you even better at your primary sport.

Athletes call it cross-training, and the science behind it is simple: Engaging in a sport or activity other than your primary one allows you to use your muscles in new and unaccustomed ways — or emphasize different ones altogether.

Not only can that result in fewer overuse injuries, but it can also help iron out muscle imbalances, improve athletic performance, and boost motivation by reducing training monotony and boredom.

So how should you go about cross-training?

Consider what follows your go-to guide for what it is, how you can weave it into your workout program, and … Read the rest
