Loose a few habits to loose weight

You are worried about continuous calorie rise, double chin or bloated bellies? All you need to do is modify a few daily habits that are packing up calories. Here are presenting a few tips to keep a check on your weight while enjoying food to the fullest.

  1. Measure your weight daily. Among the early morning chores weighing machine also get to be on your list. Note down your weight on daily basis.
  2. Have a good breakfast. Don’t rely on a biscuit alone. Go for a cup of milk and a vegetable sandwich. The secret is that the better breakfast you eat the lesser you crave for snacks.
  3. Eat slowly. Don’t rush. Science says that our brains tell us when we are hungry and when we are full. It takes some time for our brain to signal fullness; therefore if we eat quickly we’ll eat more than our stomach desires.
  4. While eating, only eat. Multitasking while meals distract you from your need and intake balance. Attend to your food and enjoy it.
  5. Don’t give up, just lessen. Abandoning food is silly. Portion your plate into two halves. Eat one half and the other half is for the ducks.
  6. One big sign board on the fridge. Your fridge should read “I might destroy your calorie count darling” or “Think before you act (EAT)”.
  7. Give yourself a choice. In a day it’s either a snack time or dessert time. If you’re craving for a dessert then you’re missing snacks of the day for sure.
  8. Take the stairs. Don’t miss out any chance to burn even a single calorie. Taking the stairs make you active and smarter.
  9. Walky talky, Whenever you’re on a call try to walk instead of sitting and chatting. You’ll lose pounds without even knowing.
  10. Lunch box. Don’t forget to take the lunch box to work. It’s a healthy alternative to restaurants and junk not to mention cheaper as well.
  11. Signal yourself. Brushing your teeth after every meal keeps you signaling not to munch on any extra crumb till your next meal time.
  12. Clear the counter. Your kitchen counter should not have anything to eat, so no mouthwatering.
  13. Never eat from the snack bag. Take out the snack on the plate and eat.
  14. Cut down drinking calories. Soda and frizzy drinks tear down your chart. Drink water or fresh lime instead.

You can always top up these habits with some resistance and cardio training. Jogging, exercising or swimming are fun to do. You don’t have to work out for hours, have a positive workout period. Resting after every small interval helps you regain strength for another interval towards flawless physique. Hard cardio is never advisable. Monitor your heart rate and don’t make it a punishment for yourself. Resistance training including light weights lifting or using your own body weight to exercise can change not just your size but would make you look 5-10 years younger.  The key is to make it sure that you exercise regularly to attain and maintain the calorie count.

Guest Post: Marketing or Fitness, Actually There’s No Difference


Every fitness program should comprise of these three components: building strength, endurance and elasticity, and that equally applies to business. In this story I’m talking about my preferred strategies to minimize the work, yet increase results.


I am a kettle bell lifter myself, and my training program consists of simple exercises: I do the basic three lifts that make me stronger and more enduring at the same time, and support that with dynamic warm up for elasticity and jogging to cool down, which also strengthens my respiratory organs. This system saves me not only time but also energy, which is important, because I also need to maximize the recovery.


I have a similar approach to the business workouts: I’m choosing the ones that contain the greatest effect on all three fields, with the least investment of time or money, and aim to holding those in balance. I also bare in mind all content re purposing opportunities: for example write-ups can be converted to videos, podcasts and email campaigns, coaching calls to articles, blog posts and newsletters, and so forth. So, if you have a business or you’re planning to establish one, I strongly recommend you incorporate the following “workouts” to your marketing plan as well.




The potency of your business generates from customer acquisition and the sales you make. To enjoy them, you organize and join conference calls and online seminars, from which you drive traffic to your highly converting website sales pages, or forms your prospects use to inquire for complimentary consultations. Your email marketing campaigning supports the sales processes.


Without a doubt, one of the most effective power exercises would be joint ventures, because they can drive you extensive traffic with an acceptable amount of effort from you.




Endurance builds through reputation, confidence and acknowledgment of your brand, which require consistency and a long term plan. As a solopreneur, YOU are the brand you’re building, and your job is to clarify and summarize it to your leads. Your objective is to present yourself as an expert and as the natural, or even the only choice for them to invest in your providings. Therefore you must have an unique perspective, style or technique, and you must state it clearly in your promotion and conversations.


The tactics you use to then spread the word and establish your credibility would be social media campaigning, joining events either as a speaker or a participant, producing content that easily goes viral, such as reports, info-graphics and videos, and of course paid advertising. Joint ventures also fall to this category.




Elasticity originates from partnerships. If you have a highly responsive email list and strong, trustworthy partnerships, your possibilities are countless. As you probably acknowledge, this links to both of the other 2 areas, and is really the bedrock of a profitable online business. Not only you prefer to possess this trait for your business, you also want to BE flexible and be a member of mastermind groups and other communities, through which these partnerships originate and develop.


In conclusion, I would suggest you to start with a plan to create a solid track record for yourself, and your brand by showcasing yourself as an expert. With that status you can then develop lucrative connections with other online entrepreneurs to grow your buyer list and sell your products, to develop all the power you need for your business.

Tips for Campers


Picture Credits
Camping is a great way to spend some time away from the pressures and noises of the modern world, but it’s also the sort of holiday that requires a lot more preparation than it would if you were staying in a hotel. You have to pack enough to last you whilst making sure you don’t pack too much, and for the more casual camper it can seem like there’s a lot of information to take on. Really, there are just a few important titbits of information that you need to take away in order to have a great time, so let’s take a look at some of them here.


Sleeping Bags
Challenger 350 Sleeper
When you go camping, a sleeping bag is a necessity, but sleeping bags aren’t always guaranteed to keep you warm through the night. Sleeping bags tend to be made with different seasons in mind, so if you don’t pick the right one you could be in for either for a very cold, uncomfortable night indeed. When looking for a sleeping bag, ask around for advice and recommendations to make sure you don’t get saddled with a dud. A sleeping bag needs to be able to keep you insulated and warm to ensure a good night’s sleep in the great outdoors, so always assume the worst with the weather and make sure that your sleeping bag is good for a lower temperature than you’re expecting.

foodTake the right food

This varies slightly depending on what sort of camping trip you’re taking, but it remains that you need to take the right kinds of food and drink with you. If you’re travelling in an RV then you will have a lot more options available to you, whereas if you’re camping in a tent you need to be a lot more practical. Take foods that are able to withstand the elements and make sure that you only take what you need. Before you leave, plan out your meals carefully and only take the relevant ingredients with you. Long-lasting dry foods are always a good choice too and can make for good snack foods, such as dried fruit and crackers. When it comes to drink, you must make sure that you have clean water at all times; if you’re taking water from the lake then it needs to be purified.

bootAppropriate Clothing

It may sound obvious, but it’s amazing how many people go camping without the right clothing and footwear. It’s easy to forget how unforgiving the outdoors can be, and people don’t always consider that they need to stay warm and dry at all times. Make sure you’re prepared with a good set of diverse, practical clothes; including waterproofs, layers such as jumpers and jackets, and sturdy footwear. The right footwear is crucial to staying comfortable and keeping yourself safe while camping, especially if you plan to do a lot of walking around. A good, sturdy pair of walking boots, which you can easily get from somewhere like Yeomans Outdoors, will help you get across difficult terrain such as muddy landscapes and rocky ground.

Cycling in Northumberland

Hi there Cycling Fans (and if you don’t cycle- you should)
I live in Northumberland, Hexham, in the UK. I tell anyone not from England, I don’t live that far from Scotland. Northumberland does look a lot like the highlands, and the cycling is awesome. The long smooth country roads that blend into the hills, the Tyne, Hadrians Wall, and farm land. A lot of the time, it’s so quiet I can normally cheekily put my headphones in (probably not the best idea in busy traffic) and sink into that ‘cycling zone’.










This is my 50 mile route below:







This ride was about 50 miles. It wasn’t a race; I can even remember the time it took me in. Average speed on the flat was about 20mph; fastest on the flat was 27mph, fastest on the hill 40 mph, and I couldn’t tell you what the speed was up hill. I had a few breaks, met some farmers, and took in the fantastic views.  I’ve tried to give you as many stats as I can- but please accept this post to be more adventurous rather than competitive.

The first half is downhill for about 3 miles, but then is practically all up hill. Let’s just say- it’s a good warm up. I’m thankful for my carbon forks on my bike. I’m not the most natural of cyclists (6ft 2, and an athletic build) so I’ll take everything I can get, within sensible pricing! This is me at the top of the hill:











Once we’re at the top of the hills, coming back down from point A and onwards was a lot of fun- most of these roads were built by the Romans- meaning they are dead straight, 14% gradients, minimal traffic and you can really build some speed up. I managed to do 40 mph through one of the hills coupled with a strong head wind, and I find that I also start to shake at that speed through body positioning, and concentration. Just watch out for the sheep! Coming through the tops to Haydon Bridge is fun, but unfortunately fun cycling always has its price. I had to join the main A69 road for a couple of miles (lots of fast cars) and then go back over the tops through Low Gate on my way back to Hexham which is about 5 miles of constant uphill. Good for training your legs though.
As I make my way through into Hexham and Corbridge it’s all straight shooting, taking the bike into a mid-gear and taking up a nice pace of around 20mph. I made my way over the Tyne Bridge at Hexham which is quite the view in its own right:

bridge1 bridge2
This is what I love about Northumberland. It’s not crowded by people, and the beauty is kept protected by the people that live here. Northumberland has quite the people retention rate- it seems to me that people leave, but somehow always end up back here. I’ve cycled the UK Coast to Coast, in Amsterdam, in France, and in Ireland, but somehow it just doesn’t have the same feeling as cycling here- it’s got that personal ‘back yard playground’ feel. Living in Hexham town, or spending your time in the nearest city, Newcastle upon Tyne, you sometimes forget the detached countryside out here.
Going past Corbridge, I make my way towards Stocksfield, Mickley, and finally Prudhoe. I had a quick break here- I love cereal bars when I cycle, and I always keep them in the pockets of my cycling jersey. I fuelled up with some water from the petrol station. Prudhoe has a huge hill that is more long and steady rather than short and steep. It’s one of those hills where you take a higher gear stand up pedal hard, and then sit back down right at the back of the seat and really feel the burn in your quads in one gear lower. The ride back to my hometown is a lot easier, being mostly downhill to start with straighter sections. Having a quick break before returning home:
Where did I get my bike? Where did I get my shoes? Where did I get my components? Where did I get my kickass yellow helmet? Merlin Cycles is your one stop bike shop. They have provided me some of the best Continental wheels and components for my Giant bike, and stop me from cracking my head open if I did ever fall off.

Four Things To Watch For After An Injury

Four Things To Watch For After An Injury

When accidents occur, you may not immediately realize you have been injured. The shock of the accident itself may make it difficult to determine if damage to the body has occurred. Anyone who has been in an accident should be monitored closely for signs that damage has occurred that may not be immediately evident.



Bleeding from a wound is generally seen immediately. However, bleeding can occur inside the brain without an external wound. Bleeding from a wound should receive immediate medical attention. Call for an ambulance and apply direct pressure to the wound. Avoid applying a tourniquet unless absolutely necessary, as this can damage tissue. Bleeding often requires stitches and may indicate further damage within the body. Surgery may be needed to repair damage of the internal organs. Broken bones may protrude through the skin causing bleeding and visible pieces of the bone. These injuries require not only repair and setting of the injured bone, but also care of the open wound.


Symptoms of Head Injury

A head injury is a situation that requires special care. Sometimes, there is no indication

If an injured person shows signs of confusion, disorientation, headache, nausea, vomiting, difficulty walking or mood changes, you should seek medical attention immediately. It could be a sign of traumatic brain injury or brain swelling inside the skull. A head injury can cause a concussion and severe injury to the brain. The person may feel headache, bleeding from the eyes or nose, unconsciousness and coma. A head injury that causes unconsciousness can be a medical emergency. Get medical help immediately.



After an accident, pain anywhere in the body is a concern. Pain can be an indicator of fractured bones, muscle tears, nerve damage or other problems. Of course, some pain can be the simple sprains and strains. Minor injuries often respond quickly to simple home treatment and may not require medical care. However, if you are in an accident and have pain, seek medical attention to ensure that no bones have been broken. X-rays and MRIs are common tests to determine if damage has occurred to bones or soft tissues within the body.



Swelling of a body part is an indication that the body is producing fluids in response to an injury. A joint may visibly swell after an injury. The protective fluids may even cause stiffness and pain in the joint. Swelling can also indicate bleeding under the skin. In this case, the skin is usually discolored, as in the common “black-and-blue” of a bruise, or it may be yellowish or purple. Applying ice packs to the area can reduce swelling. However, extensive swelling or bruising should be seen by a physician to ensure that no internal injury has occurred.


Any accident can be serious. If you have been in an accident, getting immediate medical care can be critical. Some injuries can be severe and can lead to long-term disability. For a personal injury attorney Stockton CA residents can call our office to discuss their options.

Exercise for Your Travels


Travel can easily topple healthy habits that you participate in regularly while at home. Changes in routine, busy schedules and other hassles of travel often edge out regular exercise routines and proper nutrition. As a result, frequent travelers tend to have far poorer health overall than those who seldom stay away from home. Fortunately, there are many simple things you can do to minimize the stress of travel and improve your personal fitness while on the road.
Every good trip begins before you leave home. Start by planning for healthy fitness. Research the area to which you plan to travel. Find out if your gym membership can help you gain access to any workout centers where you will be. Learn about local fitness options such as running trails or tracks open to the public. Find out what fitness amenities your hotel has to offer. If you have the option of booking your own accommodations, choose a place that offers amenities that suit your personal preferences. This might include running trails for guests, a swimming pool, in-room fitness or yoga videos, a well-equipped workout facility or fitness classes for guests. On a recent trip to San Francisco I was able to book a great hotel that allowed me to keep my early morning fitness routine going just by checking a travel reviews site. I scoured through this list of San Francisco hotels where I could scroll through and see what hotels offered the amenities I needed.
On your flight, take the time to do some in-flight exercises. Even simple stretching will alleviate cramping and stiffness associated with long journeys. On long flights, perform a quick exercise routine every hour or so. This might include back stretches, side bends, shoulder shrugs, knee lifts and ankle rolls.
When you arrive at your destination, spend a few moments getting oriented to your new surroundings. Locate fitness facilities and other amenities at your hotel. In your room, pause long enough to stretch or do a few yoga moves to become grounded before rushing to meetings or activities.


Throughout your trip, be realistic about your personal fitness goals. You probably won’t ever workout if you wait until you have a full hour to devote to exercise, but you can get an effective workout in shorter periods of time. Take the stairs whenever possible instead of hopping on the elevator. In the morning, rise a few minutes early to take advantage of the hotel’s fitness center or do some yoga in your room. If your days are packed with meetings and activities, slip a little fitness into short breaks. You can get your blood flowing and stretch your muscles by finding a secluded spot to perform a few crunches, pushups and lunges.

Pleasantly Surprised By a Great Gym Bag

Apera sports bags are the best gym bags that truly live up to their hype. I had been casually looking for a new gym bag, as the one I was using was starting to wear out, and one night, when I had some free time, I started to do a little research online. It turns out gyms are breeding grounds for all types of germs and bacteria. All of that sweat and heat finds its way into your bag and turns your gym bag into a walking germ factory. After finding this out, I became serious about finally getting rid of my old bag and finding an antimicrobial gym bag replacement.

All of my searches kept leading me back to the same product, Apera sports bags. I have to admit, just finding antimicrobial gym bags had been my main goal but I wasn’t expecting to like the design and color of the bags as much as I did. I chose he performance duffel because I travel with a fair amount of stuff with me to the gym and I wanted to be sure I didn’t run into any space issues transitioning from my last bag to this new one. I’m happy to say that I didn’t have any issues. There was more than enough room to fit my shoes, clothes, and gear which was a relief.

I also noticed immediately how well made and thought out the design of the bag was. Thoughtful storage options and little attention to detail truly set’s this bag apart from the competition and makes them the best gym bags. I’ve had previous bags that didn’t allow for any separation of items and everything was kind of just thrown into he bag at the end of the day, causing me to have to wash the bag and everything in it each time from the odor. The separate storage areas allow me to keep my shoes or any wet articles of clothing completely separate.

I know that a gym bag isn’t the most important thing in the world. It’s more often than not an afterthought when you’re planning your trip to the gym. Just throw your things in the bag and go. My concerns when looking for a new bag were whether the bags were antimicrobial gym bags, whether they provided ample room to store my stuff and the design of the bag was probably a distant third, even though I’m more than happy with the way it looks. This bag just has everything I want.
