Just when we thought we’d tried every plank out there, we found the hardest one yet

City Women & co

December 05, 2018 at 10:11AM

When a trainer cues plank position mid-workout, one thing?s for sure: Your abs will be screaming for at least the next two days. And while the stationary version of this killer move is brutal on its own, it seems that every single day yields a creative new way to level up the classic pre-push-up position. Most recently? The ultra-intense seal-walk plank—which, despite its name, is not cute at all.

Recently, Zoë Weiner, associate beauty and fitness editor at Well+Good, faced this move in a morning HIIT class. ?I consider myself a seasoned plank-er, but this move was so, so much harder than anything I?ve ever tried before—including plank jacks and high-to-low planks,? she tells me with lingering fear in her eyes. ?My arms, legs, and core were quaking, and at one point I had to drop to my knees, which is how I…

Unde s-au dus, unde-au apus…/ Where did they go, where did they disappear…

Katherine's Blog

Citeam acum cateva secunde articolul unei bloggerite talentate pe care imi place sa o citesc, Poteci de Dor.

Nu stiu de ce, dar mi-a starnit niste emotii atat de intense si triste incat nici lacrimile nu-mi pot exprima in cuvinte ceea ce simt. Cert este ca s-au dus. Bunicii.

Nu-i mai pot gasi, oricat de mult as vrea sa ii caut, nu mai sunt acolo. Inauntrul meu s-a aprins un foc atat de puternic, incat nu pot sa il sting, arde mocnit.

Amintiri din copilarie de la bunici

Vreau sa ma rog de parinti sa ma mai lase la bunici. Vreau sa stau uitata o vara intreaga la acele persoane dragi, mai vreau sa stau cu ei.

Vreau sa ii regasesc la poarta, stand pe banca din lemn putred, vreau sa le vad zambetul ridat de pe chip si sclipirea din ochi.

Vreau sa o vad pe bunica…

Don’t blame a Kid, whatever is the reason

With Nature-tanusrirchokhe

Dear Parents and the Teachers of pre-primary and primary level educations,

P.C – From Google

When a kid was born and have come to this earth, kid has nothing with him/her- no nature of telling lies, no bad habits. God has given all the parents an ideal kid of same nature. Outlook of the kids may become different, but inside of all the kids are same, filled with curiosity, innocence, honesty etc. 

Different kids are growing in different environments, under different type of parents, under different type of teachers. This is the reason, kids are being different. Difference is okay but building up bad habits within the Today’s Kids may pollute the Tomorrow’s World with the help of advanced technology.

Parents and the teachers, you all should be very much careful while handling the Flowers, every petal should be looked after with care and love, otherwise, tomorrow the flower may…

Esti ceea ce mananci, citate despre mancare si ganduri/You are what you eat, quotes about food and thoughts

Katherine's Blog

Suntem oameni, supravietuim datorita mancarii, suntem nevoiti sa ne bazam pe aceasta ca pe un factor determinant al vietii noastre. Este foarte important sa stim sa ne alimentam corespunzator, cu hrana potrivita pentru nevoile organismului nostru.

Inca din copilarie gustam nutreturi, ce vin in diferite forme: in primii ani de viata suntem alimentati cu laptele matern ce apoi este substituit cu piure-uri, mancaruri moi diverse ca mai apoi sa trecem la mancarea obisnuita.

Ne sunt interzise dulciurile in cantitati mari si suntem incurajati sa consumam legume si fructe, mancaruri pe baza de carne, supe si asa mai departe.

Alimentele interzise sunt cele mai tentante si de foarte multe ori, sa recunoastem am cazut in plasa dulceturilor, mancand pe furis bomboane, deserturi ce ne-au crescut nivelul de zahar din sange si care ne-au modificat comportamentul vizibil.

Dar oare dupa procesul de crestere si maturizare renuntam la acest apetit? Raspunsurile…

Beneficiile si riscurile consumului de cafea/The benefits and risks of coffee consumption

Katherine's Blog

Buna dimineata dragi cititori si bloggeri!

Ma gandeam in aceasta dimineata la cat de importanta este cafeaua. Cu totii suntem obisnuiti cu ea, de indata ce deschidem ochii, pe langa rutina de dimineata, cafeaua ocupa primul loc.

Daca in copilarie, gustul amar al cafelei si mirosul neobisnuit ne facea sa strambam din nasuc, astazi nu mai este asa.

Me alone.

BadArt

Last night I was sitting all alone looking out of the window. It was raining and the weather was very soothing. The cold breeze was a real escape from the hard day and the best relaxation one could get!

Have you ever sat by the window all alone and stared at the night sky? The trees look so beautiful! People are so busy with their work that they hardly notice what’s around them. Its really important to look around you sometimes and give a little time to yourself. It increases the absorbing power and makes us understanding. It helps us delve deep inside our life and makes life easier.

The atmosphere is so soothing and silence is the secret behind such beauty. It made me feel so safe and secure. No matter how much I write I can’t explain what I actually felt.

Give some time to yourself and relax…

Citate despre munca/ Work quotes

Hey, dragi cititori! Din pacate, in ultima vreme nu am mai putut fi atat de productiva pe blog, datorita faptului ca am reusit sa ma angajez. Acum jobul si intretinerea unui camin curat si cald imi ocupa majoritatea timpului, dar nu sunt dezamagita. Ci din contra.

Nostalgia.

BadArt

As she flipped through the pages , she could feel the same old essence , the same crackling sound of the pages of her school diary . She could feel a pleasent feeling and happiness in her chest. Yes , she could feel it… it was nostalgia.

Memories of her school days flashed back. Those friends, those fun, talking while class wes going on, bunking the maths and history classes with best friends, those free periods when teachers were absent, the silly truth and dare games, eating tiffin in the last benches…

She was missing her teachers. Those incomplete works and the scoldings she got for them. Tears rolled down her cheeks beside the faint smile that has now appeared upon her wet face. Memories – so dangerous – so strange – it made her happy and sad simultaneously! Yes, it was nostalgia.

She was peeping into her golden past…

How do I manage school and blogging?

Conclusion (15)

Hi there! Welcome to Thatgirl4ever Blog! My name is Nicole and as a few of you know I’m a 16 year old student who manages school and even my blog. As the title suggests I will be telling you my secret which isn’t that big in reality.


The How Question


Well firstly as a blogger I and you need a notebook or journal or whatever book you want to use to PLAN. Everyone needs to plan to have an organised blog as long you don’t have a very bright and intelligent mind that you can manage without planning. I tried taking down the road of not planning and my blog ended up in a bit of a mess.

Introduction (12)

Hi there! Welcome to Thatgirl4ever Blog! My name is Nicole and I’m a 16 year old student. Right now I’m struggling with finding good second hand books in good condition but not too expensive that are not worth it. This is really frustrating because if I had to buy the book all new they’ll add up to 400 euros. So far I found 2 books from 15. And I’m buying 5 of them new for sure because their price are good. So, 8 books more to find.

Enough of me arguing over this. Today I would like to say goodbye to November! Another month has passed really quickly! Shocking not as much!

Goodbye, November!

Goodbye to the orange leaves that fall on the sidewalks.

Goodbye to baking pumpkin cakes.

Goodbye to orange themed decorations.

Goodbye to that perfect touch of chill in the air.

Goodbye to Thanksgiving.

Why you might not want to do HIIT workouts two days in a row

I use HIIT training but once at every 2-3 days , only

City Women & co

November 18, 2018 at 04:00AM

As good as it might feel to do an intense HIIT workout every day, there?s one major problem with the regimen: HIIT workout recovery is just as important as the activity itself. Your body needs time to heal. Recovery is essentially becoming its own fitness modality and a prime part of workout warriors? routines (there are entire studios dedicated to it!), after all: Letting your body rest is a crucial part of your healthy progress.

?Recovery is one of the most important aspects of a successful training regimen, but for some reason, it?s commonly overlooked,? John Gallucci, Jr., physical therapist and president of JAG Physical Therapy, told Self. ?Especially after intense or prolonged training, your body needs time to repair tissues that have broken down.?

Anyway, the balon d’or ceremony held on Monday and for the first time in ten years, the award went to neither Messi or Ronaldo. Luka Modric of Croatia and Real Madrid won it. That’s no news of course.
I’m sorry, but no! I do not think he deserves it. Now, I’m happy that the deadlock has been broken. Its no longer a Messi-Ronaldo affair. But Modric? No!
So you mean to tell me, that in the past 12 months of football, Modric is the undisputable football’s best? If anything, Modric is getting…

November 23, 2018 at 04:20AM

Between travel and party plans, it can be hard to fit in regular sweat sessions during the holiday season, which is why we’ve tapped buzzy celeb trainer Tracy Anderson to create a full body workout that?s not only fast and effective, but able to be done anywhere—in case the only “gym” space you can find this week is the floor of your parents’ living room.

By now, the tryptophanic haze of your Thanksgiving holiday is likely starting to wear off. (See you next year paleo pumpkin pie, sigh.) And if you?re looking for fitness tips on transitioning back to business as usual, Tracy Anderson?s ready with an assist. What you need is a total-body reboot—kind of like when you restart your computer in order to give your system a reset—says the trainer.

?Part of the challenge of these movements is the muscular control.?

The good news is that you can…

Eggs – probably the best choice for breackfast

When I was growing up, my dad—who is quite the chef—repeated one mantra about a well-stocked kitchen: Any single-use appliance is a complete-garbage-waste-of-space. What?s really valuable, he believed (and still does) are Swiss army-type inventions like pots, pans, and knives that can tackle dozens upon dozens of tasks.

So what did I do as a pretty lame form of teenage rebellion? I bought a pasta-maker, of course! And then when I wanted things to get v-gourmet, I added a ravioli-maker to the mix! These two items are now gathering dust in my family?s kitchen in Charleston (so sorry, dad), but I?ve found a new single-use appliance to obsess over.

Behold, the Dash Egg Cooker ($16), which comes in Tiffany blue and can scramble, poach, hard-boil, and even dish out a mini-omelet at your beck and call. The contraption has four-and-a-half stars on Amazon, and Chrissy Teigen

Memory Lane

OUKASnation

I’ve made incredible strides in my life, and though I try to look forward and stay in the present my mind is filled with many memories and thoughts. Till this day memories still pop up undoing my current work and I still find myself spending chunks of my day thinking about the past. Memories are something I hold dear to me as they are what has made me the person I have become today. Especially a certain crop.

Over the past few years, I’ve been replaying a certain set of memories like a continuous photo album. What’s funny is it always feels like I’m in that exact moment again, with the same emotions oozing through my body. As I flick through those memories, I notice how much I’ve grown, how much those people have changed, and the habits that have altered from those times.

Sorry, Santa, but you can keep your partridges, pear trees, and leaping lords this year. All I want for Christmas is something from the new Savage x Fenty holiday collection, which Rihanna, queen of size-inclusive intimates, dropped today.

In fact, I want to create my own advent calendar out of its underwear, which evokes a winning combo grown-up AF and casually glamorous—kind of like the singer herself. ?My vision for Savage X has always been having women feel confident expressing themselves through a little lace, a little corsetry, and a little T-shirt bra,? writes Rihanna on her site. And you?ll find a lot of all the above in her latest seasonal offering, which includes more than 200 new pieces—all available for about $100 or less.

A 3-step checklist to stay financially healthy after job loss—because it happens, and it’s okay

So you’ve just been handed a dirty little pink slip (no, unfortunately not the slinky, silky version you might find at the likes of La Perla). It quickly dawns on you that, you’ve just been let go—told to pack your file folders and your ficus and to leave the building, like, now.

What’s your next step? If the voice inside your head is screaming “PANIC!,” with flashes of an eviction notice and moldy bread for dinner and essentially unpayable medical bills crossing your mind, that’s totally normal. But, it?s also completely unnecessary.

How to Regain Broken Trust in a Relationship

Cognizance

Trust is the rock upon which all relationships exist. If that rock is chipped away by deceit, over time the foundation crumbles.When something more serious happens such as infidelity in a marriage, the trust and foundation are broken in an instant. It is not easy to rebuild trust but it is possible.Whether the trust is broken between a friendship or a marriage, the steps and formula for overcoming the broken trust are the same. In any relationship where trust is broken, both parties must be willing to work through the brokenness in order to heal the relationship. It is not a one sided process.When the party who has been hurt does not want to reconcile because the hurt is too deep, then the relationship cannot be restored. Likewise, if the offending party does not want to own up to their wrong doing that broke the trust, then the relationship cannot…

Everything You Need to Know Before Visiting a Marriage Counselor

Cognizance

Marriage counseling is helpful to anyone who is married. A marriage counselor can help a couple through difficult times and they can also help a couple have a happier marriage.

However, not all marriage counselors are suited to help all marriages. You need to know what to look for when you seek out a marriage counselor. Here are the top 8 points that I would tell a friend or family member to consider when seeking the services of a marriage counselor.

1. Know Your Counselor’s Values

If you and your spouse are of a particular faith or religion, use a counselor with that same faith background. I would not recommend that a Christian go to an atheist counselor. Your beliefs and values are going to be starkly different.

Find a counselor that has your similar belief system. How do you know what their belief system may be? Look at the…

The app offers a library of audible content ($9 per month) that you can access anywhere (as in: on the train, in bed, or on vacay), anytimewhen you?re trying to get turned on. The company?s mission is simple, really: to appeal to women?s sexuality using a science-backed method called ?sexual framing.? Meaning, the brain, not the body, leads the charge.

Crusading for an excellent world

Success Inspirers' World

I am crusading for an excellent world;
I am a crusader for an excellent world;
An excellent world is not a far-fetched dream;
But a real possibility;
It is full of challenges, though;
And many, I will encounter;
Many will be discouraging messages;
Some will laugh at my dream
With scorn,
Some will launch rockets at us;
Yet, some will hail it as a great dream;
Whatever the case,
I have been taught never to look back,
When the trophy is right ahead of me;
I will wade through all the storms
And land on safe ground;
I have no illusions that my dream will come,
True in my life time.
It will not;
But also, I have no doubt
That this is the right path
To take no matter how long it
May take.
We can only play
Our little part;
And where we end, others
Will continue.

10 Ways to Find Learning Motivation Even If You’ve Graduated Long Ago

Cognizance

As human beings, we have a built-in desire to learn and expand our knowledge to grow and develop. The type of learning can be different between people. Some people love to hear about what other people are doing—the gossips— others love reading books about nature and some enjoy reading the news. We all have it and it is built in.

Like all learning, some of the knowledge gained is useful and some less useful. Gossiping and commenting on the latest news is not going to develop you very much as a person, and in all likelihood is going to make you angry, sad or happy, depending on your viewpoint.

While other knowledge, such as learning a new skill or a new language, can help you to grow intellectually and give you skills that can lead to better career prospects and an increase in your income.

We live in the Northeast so the scene above isn’t all that unusual for us. The holiday season brings snow and cold weather along with the anticipation of time being spent with family and friends. Year after year we continue the same holiday traditions in our family and look forward to them all through the year.

Copywriting: When It Comes To Writing Sales Copy – Bullet Points!

Matt's Digital Marketing Blog Updates

So… what are we doing today?… Let me update you on what’s going on in the world of Internet Profits.

I’ll be finishing up writing sales copy today for another product that we’re actually launching next month, called “The Quick Start Challenge”.

It’s a 30 day coaching program that we do every year, that essentially is to teach people in a 30 day period to get started online, start building their email list, start driving traffic, and start obviously monetizing all of that process by making affiliate commissions.

I’ve wrote version one of the copy. Just got a few bullet points to add in there. Actually, speaking of which, when I say a few bullet points, I’m actually going to stack the bullet points, as many as I possibly can. Obviously all factually true and correct, about what’s actually included, what people are getting.

J.Lo’s trainer spills the secret behind her strong core: a 4-part plank move

City Women & co

September 26, 2018 at 06:56AM

At this point, basically the entire world has come to an agreement that Jennifer Lopez?s body is nothing short of #goals—heck, even Victoria?s Secret models are striving for her booty. And she deserves all the praise: This lady works hard on her workout routine to stay strong and toned, sweating with her trainer on the regular to keep on building up her impressive physique—tough-as-nails abs workouts, included.

While J.Lo definitely has her go-to exercises—like Spider-Man push-ups for those impressive biceps and plenty of squats and lunges for her glutes—she?s all about planks for her core. Not just any planks, though: Her longtime trainer, David Kirsch, recently shared the core-busting routine he swears by with PopSugar. It involves not one but four moves in a series that?ll work your entire body. (Hey, being Jenny from the Block doesn?t come easy, people!) Between all the kickbacks and…

J.Lo’s trainer shares 3 core-blasting moves you can do with a medicine ball

It?s easy to get fixated on fancy exercise equipment, but J.Lo?s trainer David Kirsch just reminded us that sometimes all you need are a few no-frills drills and basic props to get in a good sweat sesh.

Kirsch—who also works with Kate Upton and Heidi Klum—recently shared an abs-blasting routine on Instagram using a weighted medicine ball and his own body mass that?s as core shaking as they come. (He?s not the only one who swears by the tool for a killer workout, either—Karlie Kloss and Cindy Crawford use ?em on the regular, too.) Scroll down to see the trainer?s go-to exercises. Hint: They?re ones you already know and love—just with a twist.

3 killer kettlebell moves Halle Berry nails using just a gallon jug of water

City Women & co

November 26, 2018 at 03:31PM

If you?re ready to sweat, but don?t have fitness accessories (read: resistance bands, medicine balls, and dumbbells) on hand, you basically have two options. You could put off your workout until tomorrow, or you can emulate Halle Berry and transform everyday household objects into your make-shift gym equipment. (The latter! Go for the latter!)

The celeb posted an Instagram story of her performing three killer kettlebell moves. Only, instead of using an actual kettlebell, the actress appears to have grabbed a gallon of water straight out of her fridge for her sweat sesh. You know, so she can kill it in her workout and then stay extra hydrated once its over. With the jug in hand (in place of the kettlebell), Berry moves through a triple-threat of weighted exercises.

I took a DNA test to tell me how to work out—and apparently I’m a sprinter

City Women & co

November 30, 2018 at 08:12AM

Earlier this year, I became one of the millions who?ve shipped a swab of saliva to a faraway lab in exchange for beyond-comprehensive DNA profile. Only, I wasn?t really interested in learning about my distant ancestors (sorry, great, great, great Irish grandma!) or which foods would optimize my genes. What I really wanted to know? How my deoxyribonucleic acid informs the time I spend at the gym. Because, yes—a test can totally tell you that now.

To begin my journey of biological self-discovery, I tried both the Vitagene and DNAFit gene-testing options. By the time I?d taken my cheek swab sample, gathered up the courage to go to the post office to ship it off to the lab (because, ugh), and waited patiently for my results to come, two months had gone by. But once I logged into my online profile and discovered the bounty…

?Dude, I think something is out of whack with my hormones,? I tell my workout buddy, as I walk towards my CrossFit box for the second time in one day. Some time in the last three months—after I?d left my 9-to-5 cubicle for the much-more-flexible schedule of a WFH writer—I?d gotten into the habit of working out twice a day.

I?d do my Olympic weightlifting or a ?Workout of the Day? (WOD) in the morning, and then take a 7 p.m. CrossFit class at night. My body was definitely sore, but two-a-days were my time to socialize. After all, who needs coworkers when you?ve got workout buddies?

All was well until a subtle shift started happening inside my body. I felt off. Even after 8 or 9 hours of sleep, I?d wake up wiped and craving coffee. Workouts that usually left me glowing, instead…

10 things nobody tells you about CrossFit

November 25, 2018 at 11:00PM

Acronyms abound; grunts, moans, and clangs echo off the walls; and a cloud of chalk greats you like a hype-AF welcoming committee. These (endearing) peculiarities make CrossFit feel like it operates in a world all its own. Which, let?s face it, can be intimidating even for slay-all-day-ers.

So in the name of demystifying CrossFit for the uninitiated, eight CrossFit coaches reveal what nobody tells you about CrossFit before you join (i.e., what you probably can?t find with a Google search).

Below, they share nuggets of knowledge you probably won?t learn by watching The Sport Of Fitness on TV.

I tried a mini computer to count my CrossFit reps while I worked out

City Women & co

November 25, 2018 at 10:00AM

CrossFitters have embraced many fashion trends that the non-initiated may balk at, because fashion has to meet function during a WOD. First there were compression knee socks, then there were booty shorts covered in pastry prints, and now we?re living in a world where the Nexus, a high-tech arm sleeve, counts reps for you.

Nexus is geared to adding a little #science to CrossFit. Inside this sleeve sits a what I?ll call a ?mini computer?, which is the shape of a snack-sized Kit Kat, and it provides information about your reps. ?Other trackers do not tell the story of the exertion you are putting your body through externally. Nexus can measure your physical movement patterns, counting reps, and providing meaningful information about your performance and fitness,? explains Mike Dawson, the brand?s CEO.

Before the workout, you let the Nexus app—which you sync up to…

Is fashion’s latest obsession with cowboys just channeling the Wild West energy of today’s cultural climate?

City Women & co

September 26, 2018 at 05:12AM

A couple of months ago I noticed that my artist friends residing deep in Brooklyn had switched out their French-inspired berets for something more unusual—flat-rimmed hats and bolo ties. At first, I merely took notice and stuck to my shoulder padded leisure suits—New York fashion can be especially eclectic. Slowly but surely, however, an aesthetic, which is best described as Marie Kondo?s minimalism meets Debbie Winger?s Sissy in Urban Cowboy, has seeped its way into one major fashion collection after another.

Designers? latest obsessions with western wear confused me at first. But I?ve since come to the conclusion that an unclear future has people collectively looking back at times that seemed equally untamed for guidance. (Hindsight is, after all, 20/20.) It could explain why the last major western resurgence happened during the 1980s when the winddown of the Cold War, coupled with the…

Here’s how buying in to fast fashion affects our brains—not just our budgets

City Women & co

October 31, 2018 at 12:15PM

On the scale of addictive behaviors, Carrie Bradshaw?s shoe collection and Sophie Kinsella?s Shopaholic series make obsessive shopping seem about as bad of a habit as ordering oat milk lattes every morning (guilty)—but in reality, it?s a serious affliction that affects one in 20 Americans. The group most likely to develop a shopping dependency? Young women, psychologists at the University of Bergen have found. That’s because addictive shopping behavior typically starts in late adolescence and early adulthood—just when cheap clothing is within financial reach. In the past, most people outgrew their overspending habits as their maturing personal style priced them out of such options. But thanks in big part to the rise of fast fashion, cheap clothing isn’t just for the the young—it’s now for everyone.

What that means is that, in addition to millennial and Gen Z women, an increased number of…

Feeling Anxious About Your Finances? Here’s What to Do About It

Casually poll friends at your weeknight book club or peruse any online personal finance forum, and you?ll find out that financial anxiety affects people of every age and income. But you knew that already, because you?ve been there too—from unease about your savings to wondering if you should have really bought that matcha latte this morning.

So why is everyone you know (including you) anxious about their money situation? Carrie Friedman, a lifestyle coach who focuses on finances and works with individuals, families, and small-business owners to align their spending-and-saving habits with their values, has a theory. “Financial anxiety is common because Americans aren?t taught the ABCs of personal finance,” she posits.

It’s time to say buh-bye, “performative wellness”—and hello, sanity

City Women & co

December 04, 2018 at 03:45AM

When your wellness routine—AKA the rituals and habits you embraced to make your life better—is stressing you out, things need to change. And for so many people this year, the line between constructive self-care and pure anxiety trigger (as in, just another thing on your already-jammed to-do list) became blurrier than ever before. In 2019, it’s time to simplify, simplify, simplify. And get that wellness-loving mojo back.

“In the age of social media and particularly Instagram, I believe the pressure people feel to engage in performative wellness creates anxiety, self-doubt, and depression,” says author, doula, and wellness maven Latham Thomas, who’s watched the landscape shift and expand as wellness has gone from esoteric to everywhere.

In the process, Instagram feeds have been flooded with picture-perfect healthy meals, #selfcaresunday rituals, and more. (Hey, if you don’t take an in-studio selfie, did your workout even happen

In a dream world, you?d have time to spend an hour in your favorite boutique fitness class or head to the gym without feeling totally rushed every single day. In reality, though?

Cardio weightlifting can save you *major* time in the gym—and who doesn’t want that?

Pretty much all my life, my workouts have stayed relatively the same: run for about three miles, then throw in some impromptu strength training at the end. Of course, I?ve been to countless boutique fitness classes over the years (from cycling to HIIT to Pilates to yoga), but the real meat and potatoes of my personal fitness regimen has been all about logging time and miles on the treadmill, day in and day out. So, my mind was blown when celebrity trainer Ngo Okafor put everything I knew about cardio to the test.

Upon entering his Iconoclast Fitness studio in New York?s Flatiron neighborhood, I was ready to be thrown into the lion?s den, so to speak. I got right down to business with 20 goblet squats using a kettlebell—not starting on a cardio machine like I?m so used to doing. More weights were…

With over 1,000 studios (in 17 different countries, no less) and 800,000 members, Orangetheory is one of the fastest-growing boutique fitness franchises in the country. Clearly, they?re doing something right.

A big part of that is their science-backed heart rate-driven workout: The key is to get your heart rate past its maximum threshold (an effort of 85 or above on a scale of 1 to 100) for 12 to 20 minutes during the 60-minute class to get a metabolic response, AKA to reap the benefits of an after-burn. Regular OTers know that this is referred to as the orange zone. (Oh and don?t worry, you?re still working out plenty hard the rest of the time, too.)

I don’t exactly recall the first mile I ever ran but I do know this: It wasn’t my idea. (If I were guessing, it probably had to do with proving I was a physically fit third grader to my gym teacher for the Presidental Fitness Test.) But I do remember the first mile I chose to run on my own. I was 14 and to make the basketball team, I had to clip along at an eight-minute pace. I didn’t do it. So, the next day I set out again, and again, and again to hit this mark and somewhere along the way, the pursuit hooked me. I guess you could say that, for me, running was always about something other than the miles.

Could you pass the Army’s new fitness test?

City Women & co

December 04, 2018 at 10:46AM

If you know anything about the United States Army, you know those soldiers are strong (and seriously good sleepers, BTW). Anyone who wants to make it in has to be in pretty stellar shape—so much so that there?s currently a physical readiness training program in place that ensures those who serve have the strength, stamina, and agility they need to survive combat. But the new test is on an entirely different level.

According to Army Times, the Army Combat Fitness Test could be implemented as soon as next October, and it?s so tough there?s already an official website to help soldiers prepare both physically and mentally. It was created to ?better connect fitness with combat readiness,? part of which involves enhancing soldiers? mental toughness. And judging off by the insanely hard list of events you have to do to pass, I have a feeling…

TheGamePlan

Marketing Online

I’ve heard about all these people making money online and thought, yeah, that’s sounds good. But as I had a profession as an electrician, I only skimmed the subject and just got the main idea about it and not really gone into depth with it. Then one day my health failed me and I was not able to continue in the line of work that I used to do.

So, I’m stuck here now with no money to invest in anything, but as luck would have it, I do have acces to free internet and I have a small laptop to play around with. But where do you start? I’ve spent weeks researching, probably months in total and I sort of know the end goal, but it seems impossible to reach it at this moment in time.

One thing that I’ve noticed is there are loads of people claiming to…

Be curious

Success Inspirers' World

I like you to be serious,
And always be curious,
There are possibilities,
And many opportunities,
For you to reach the top,
But be ready to open up.
You will gain from reading
And especially listening;
Learn to handle everything
As if you were a king;
Do things in a big way;
And never waste a day.
Be confident;
But diligent.
Listen to your inner voice;
And you will rejoice.

How Megan Roup ditched perfectionism and followed her gut to become a fitness phenom

City Women & co

December 04, 2018 at 06:30PM

In the Follow Your Gut® spotlight, The Sculpt Society creator Megan Roup shares how listening to her instincts helped her turn her dream job into a realityand the daily habits (like sippingHealth-Ade kombucha) that she counts on to mentally and physically recharge.

Whether you?re experiencing Megan Roup?s infectious energy in the studio or in your living room (via obé?s streaming workout platform), one thing is clear: She?s got megawatt energy and a style all her own. But before she took on New York City?s fitness scene—and then conquered laptop screens everywhere—it took a leap of faith.

“Often, we’re overwhelmed with the idea of change or don’t want to start until everything is perfect,” says Roup, who swapped a professional dance career for fitness entrepreneurship. “But unless you start, nothing will happen. There is power in action, it doesn’t have to be perfect…

Why do I hate Christmas?

dots

Hi there! Welcome to Thatgirl4ever Blog! My name is Nicole and I’m 16 years old; I hope everyone is enjoying life as much as they can. It’s December. And December equals Christmas. So, as a few of you know; I don’t like Christmas and recently I have been asked the question why and people suggested to me that I should blog about this. So, here I am!


My Reason
Christmas in Malta


Wherever you go, there are Christmas songs; in shops, on the radio, on the TV, and every social media. It just pisses me off! -.- The first reason is I loathe Christmas songs (they’re just annoying).

Christmas is basically related to the birth of Jesus of the Christian religion, that on the 25th he’s born. The second reason why I don’t like Christmas I am not a religious personand I live on an island whose part of the…

This Journey

Becoming and Beholding

On the other side

and over the hump,

I catch a vision of the new

before me,

and within me.

It was a rough season –

all the falling and stumbling

behind me.

I look back –

and though I do not want

to go back again,

my heart sings –

for I am grateful.

The lessons have arrived –

some like a ton of bricks…

but after getting knocked down,

I got up –

again and again.

You assisted –

helping my legs remember their strength

and teaching me to rest, too.

I surrendered to the season –

reluctantly at first…

but as I let go,

healing arrived.

Now here I stand.

I am firmly grounded

in a whole new way of being.

Thank you.

Thank you from the bottom of my feet

through my heart and 

radiating upward

and outward

from every pore of life in me.

The success of people

Success Inspirers' World

“Successful people are the ones who are contributing to make the world an excellent place. On their part, those who fail, or are finding it hard to realize their dreams, are at the forefront of the destruction of the world. This implies that inspiring, motivating, encouraging and helping people succeed is a way of indirectly building an excellent world.” (Romilia Quotes)

“Our dream, to help people know true success is a way to empower them to be an asset to themselves and the world.” (Romilia Quotes)

“Our vision is a world where everybody succeeds and is happy and enjoys the world. This is  our fairytale.” (Romilia Quotes)

If everybody truly succeeds,

There will be no reason for conflicts in the world.

If everybody truly succeeds,

There will be no reason for wars;

If everybody truly succeeds,

The world will be an excellent place.

Therefore, we who dream of an excellent…

Everything You Want Is On The Other Side Of Fear

Success Inspirers' World

Boy peeking to the other side of fear.

For one moment, right now, imagine what you would be able to achieve if you just went for it. Anything you put your mind to, it would be accomplished. Of course, this comes with struggles and challenges. Can you remember something you wanted to achieve badly or a goal that you set for yourself, and followed up by the thought of “I cannot do this,” or “What if I fail,” or “I’m not good enough?”

Firstly, it’s a natural human reaction to have those thoughts occur when you set big goals for yourself, goals that will make you grow as an individual and stretch your current way of thinking. Secondly, just know that those feelings of fear are completely natural and happen to everyone who has achieved greatness or done something remarkable. However, what mustn’t happen regardless of how rough it may be, is to not let those same exact…
