Push Up with Tricep Pull
3 sets of 15 reps
Juan Lombo
Come to plank pose, top of a pushup, resting on and holding a dumbbell in each hand anywhere from 8 to 20lbs. Start to lower down, keeping the elbows close to the body, performing a tricep pushup. Press back up to plank and pull the elbow up towards the sky, lifting the weight off of the ground, for the tricep pull. Make sure to keep the hips squared towards the floor, so not to use momentum, but instead using the strength of the core and arms. Place the weight back down, perform another pushup, then lift the other weight up. That was one rep. Continue this move, going for 12 – 15 reps. Rest and repeat.
Good for arm and core strength and toning. Balance and coordination.

9 Real Tips for a Healthy Life and Weight Loss Goals:

green-tea-rex:

1. Don’t eat gross healthy food. If you don’t want to eat dehydrated kale chips then don’t. There are a million healthy eating options that YOU will love.

2. Get rid of the diet and exercise mindset. This is about eating food that makes you feel good and not need to deal with exploding diarrhea. Food that doesn’t make your face greasy or make you always exhausted. It’s not about spending an hour on a treadmill every day to undo your eating “mistakes”. This is about having energy and being strong.

3. There isn’t a finish line, only a starting line. The second you decide to be the best version of yourself is the second you need to stop hiding in your house. Take on the world. Stop turning down invites to go hang out with your friends. Ask an acquaintance to grab coffee. You need to make an effort to keep relationships going.

4. You are never going to be perfect. And no one else is either. There is no success story that isn’t painted with failure.

5. Have fun. Seriously. Don’t run on a treadmill or spend hours a day on an elliptical if you hate it. Go run today, bike tomorrow, swim on the weekends, join a soccer team, don’t just exercise for the hell of it, but to feel good and experience life.

6. Food is food. It’s just energy and you can’t let it control your life. Please please please, if you feel like you’re developing an unhealthy relationship with food, talk to someone! Talk to a person you trust or who at least can take the issue seriously. If you have no idea who that person could be or are too afraid to ask then message me and I’ll be that person until we find you someone.

7. Research forever, about everything. Never give up fruit because one person says all sugar will make you fat. Don’t cut all your carbs just because it worked for someone else. Research, try a few different things here and there until you find what works best for YOU.

8. You can do anything! You can take up ballet, boxing, painting, hockey, singing, seriously anything. You are never too old, overweight, or untalented to pursue your interests. You may (and probably will) look like a fool in some things when you first start. But I PROMISE YOU if you just stick with it and make honest efforts to learn and get better, some day you will be amazing at it and the newbies will be too intimidated to join because of how good you are (but you’d better encourage them to do it anyway!)

9. Breathe. If you don’t like your life the way it is, then take a deep breath and go change it.

Guess what else? 7000 jumping jacks doesn’t equal 3500 calories burned.
I wish it was that way, but it isn’t.


god bless this

This was so funny to me that I actually strapped on my HR monitor and did 40 jumping jacks, 30 crunches, 20 squats, and 10 pushups. Didn’t rush, kept good form. 13 calories.




^^Lol! Glad that this is still going :)

Beauty privilege is very real. None of us are imagining it, and if we aren’t born genetic lottery winners, our only option is to compensate with style, grace, and charm. Of course, none of that shit comes cheap. That’s kind of the whole point. It’s all meant to be aspirational and exclusionary. We’re supposed to feel depressed by our skin, agitated by our bodies, and anxious about our invisibility. That’s the insidious subtlety of social control. The worst part is that we know in our rational minds that it’s all bullshit, and yet we’re still plagued with self-loathing when we can’t live up to unattainable beauty standards. No matter how much self-acceptance we achieve, we can still look in the mirror and instantly catalog all the things about ourselves that we don’t think measure up. It’s maddening. It makes us feel like hypocrites even though it’s not our hypocrisy.

thehealthycook:

1) SPEND TIME EACH WEEK LOOKING FOR RECIPES.This may feel like an indulgence, but just let yourself do it. Browse blogs and websites for recipes that look delicious. Hang out on Tasteologie. Pile up some cookbooks and reach fo the sticky notes. Get inspired!
2) CREATE A PLACE TO SAVE YOUR RECIPES, and keep it SIMPLE. Do whatever works for you. Don’t get caught up in a system, just use whatever works best and most easily. Personally, I like Pinterest because it’s easy to visually browse what I’ve saved. (Watch for another post coming soon with a rundown of our readers’ favorite places to save recipes.
3) ASK OTHERS WHAT THEY WANT TO EAT. Like. your partner, family, and roommates. This might sound obvious, but it’s easy to get caught up in our weeks and forget to ask our households what they would like to eat. I get extra inspired, too, when I feel like I’m cooking a meal as a gift — trying to please and delight the palate of someone I love.
4) KEEP A MEAL JOURNAL. One of my best inspirations is my own record of things I’ve cooked in the past. Take a look at what you were cooking a year ago, two years ago. It’s a good way to remember things you used to cook, and still love.
5) START A CALENDAR. Now that you’re getting inspired in what to eat, start a calendar of what you’d like to cook over the next few days or few weeks. It can be as organized as a Google Calendar, with notes on each day for that day’s menu. Or you can just jot notes to yourself in the corner of your laptop screen. The important thing is to write it down.
6) GO WITH THEME NIGHTS. (soup night, pasta night, beans). I find find it really helpful to have a theme night each week. This doesn’t work for everyone, but it may be especially helpful for those with kids. Keeping the focus narrow will help you and your household make quick recipe decisions.
7) CHOOSE A SHOPPING DAY AND MAKE A LIST. A lot of the readers who seemed to have success in meal planning shopped very purposefully. They looked at their recipes and made a shopping list. Some of the meal planning and recipe-saving services let you do this easily, extracting ingredients from the recipes you have saved.
8) CHECK WHATS ON SALE. Some people really like to organize their meals around sales. Is organic chicken a dollar off this week? Or canned chickpeas? Check out your grocery store circular and adjust your meal plan or shopping list a bit.
9) PLAN FOR LEFTOVERS. Most of us have at least some tolerance for leftovers. I regularly cook one or two big healthy casseroles at the beginning of the week and eat off them all week long for lunch. Some people can only eat leftovers for a single night. Either way, try to make your cooking always do double duty. Make a little extra of everything, and if you don’t want it right away, freeze it.
