One day at a time :)

“We as humans sacrifice our health in order to make money. Then we sacrifice money to recuperate our health. And then we are so anxious about the future that we do not enjoy the present. The result being that we do not live in the present or the future, we live as if we are never going to die, and then die having never really lived.โ€
Stop for a minute, look around you, breathe deep, release, enjoy life one day at a time ๐Ÿ™‚

Our thoughts are the key to a happy life :)

ย After reading “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho and “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne, a great feeling invaded my mind………..
My motto in life is to always “Be Positive”.
I am an optimistic person most of the times, but if things don’t go like I plan them, then pessimistic thoughts run through my mind.
The Universe is a huge “Magnetic Field” and our thoughts are a powerful weapon which decides if our life will be good or bad.
When we have negative thoughts, bad things keep happening to us and when we have positive thoughts, good things start to happen.
I realized that besides just saying “I’m positive”, we have to think and act positive and be grateful about the good things that we have in life, even when we wake up in the morning, we have to be grateful about being alive.
Nothing good comes from having negative and pessimistic thoughts, because we keep attracting negative vibes into our lives.
Being grateful and having positive thoughts, will attract good vibes into our life and it will change us forever.
And now I’m ending this topic with one of my favorite quotes:


โ€œWatch your thoughts, they become words;ย 
watch your words, they become actions;ย 
watch your actions, they become habits;ย 
watch your habits, they become character;ย 
watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.โ€

Does healthy means………

There’s a lot of people that think that, if you are healthy, your body should look all ripped or as a bodybuilder and as a matter of fact is preventing them from being healthy……..
Well I say “bull-crap”…………
Not that I’m against getting all ripped or having a sculpted body, no no no, I love that, but my point is that for as long as we keep the junk away and eat healthy, drink lots of water and stay active while we can, our energy levels are gonna be through the roof and we will live longer and happier.
But this is my personal opinion……………………
๐Ÿ™‚ Love, Peace and Stay Healthy ๐Ÿ™‚

I saw an article the other day that suggested that Gym is more effective than Home workout.
Well,,,,,,, I personally don’t agree with it ๐Ÿ™‚
All my life I have exercised home and never felt the need to go to the Gym, because I didn’t want to waste my money on something that I could do by exercising at home and not spending a dime for it ๐Ÿ™‚
The last 3 years I’ve been working out almost everyday. I bought a pair of dumbbells, which helped me a lot on the variety of my exercises and now my body is in a great shape.
Exercising at home is great for as long as you’re willing to workout and eat healthy ๐Ÿ™‚
You don’t have to go to the Gym to keep your body toned or ripped, because by only exercising at home you’ll turn your body in the best shape possible.
And If you have trouble finding what exercises to do at home, just start browsing on the internet and you’ll find hundreds of different workouts:

Doing exercises like:
Jumping Jacks
Mountain Climbers
High Knees
Push ups
Pull ups
Sit ups & Crunches
Dips (between two chairs)
Squats
Running
Walking
And if you buy a pair of Dumbbells you have an extra 10-20 different exercises only with the use of dumbbells.
So my point is that, we don’t have to go to the Gym to lose weight, or stay in shape or get ripped.
All we have to do is use our home and also natures beautiful places for jogging or walking.
Eat healthy, exercise everyday and keep water as your best friend.
Love & Peace to all ๐Ÿ™‚Image

No gym, no problem :)

Not everyone can afford to join a gym or afford to purchase multiple machines for a home gym. So how do you get in a good workout without the fancy equipment?
You can get in a great workout right in the comfort of your own home by using your body weight or even some dumbbells.
What I’ve done for the past three years has changed my life for the best.
I was 210 lbs and now I weight 160 lbs and I can say that I’m leaner and ripped, by only exercising in my home and no gym at all ๐Ÿ™‚
I changed the way of eating and drinking only water throughout the day ๐Ÿ™‚
My everyday routine is simple and everyone can do it ๐Ÿ™‚
I start with stretching for about a minute and then:
Jumping Jacks – 1 set ย  = 50 reps
Push ups ย  ย  ย  ย  – 3 sets = 30 reps each
Dips ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  – 3 sets = 26 reps each ( I use the gap between the sink and the washer,,,lol ) is true ๐Ÿ™‚
Dumbbell Curl ย – ย 4 sets = 15 reps
Dumbbells are (33 lbs each), but you can start small in the beginning and then add weight while you gain strength.
Squats ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย – 1 set = 16 reps
Shrugs ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย – 1 set = 25 reps
After I’m done I drink immediately chocolate milk with no sugar at all and then I take a 20 minutes walk, just to relax my muscles, but you don’t have too.
So this is all I’ve been doing for the past three years and I feel stronger, leaner and happier than ever ๐Ÿ™‚

One of those lazy days, but……..

Today was one of those lazy days that including the rainy weather you just don’t feel like working out. The last day I felt like this was long time ago.
So instead of my everyday 40 minutes workout, I added 20 extra minutes to spice it up a little bit, so the brain got the message to never feel lazy anymore, or I will make the workout ย session longer ๐Ÿ™‚ It was fun though, because it was like my mind didn’t feel like it, but my body was screaming for ๐Ÿ™‚
Some days our mind doesn’t feel like exercising and some other days our body doesn’t want to ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s why I listened to my body today and it was worthy, because it gave me the energy to enjoy this beautiful rainy day and a nice walk on top of it ๐Ÿ™‚
The TV, couch and the junk are always the temptation, but the exercise will make your Life Beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

Love & Peace to All
