Fat Burner Circuit

I hate cardio so to spice it up I did this for my second workout

Elliptical 15 mins medium-fast pace

Body Weight SuperSet 5 Sets
Pull-Ups to failure
Push-Ups to failure
Squats to failure
Dips to failure
Rest 60-90 seconds after each set

Since I finished faster than I thought I put the treadmill on a 15 incline on 3 and told myself to get up the Damn hill for 10 mins. Enjoy at your on risk (-;

The Squat is Your Friend


If you're having issues with your squats try doing a proper warm up to loosen up your hips.
  • Malasana pose aka “the squat”(breath and sit in the position for at least 20 sec)

  • Side squat

  • Deep Lunge

  • Pigeon pose
Try to move smoothly when transitioning between each exercise. Spend some time in each pose and get comfortable. Do the circuit as many times as it takes for you to get warmed up. I suggest doing it at least 2-3 times.

10 Great Uses for Coconut Oil


1. Coconut oil is a great cooking oil substitute, it’s a  medium-chain fatty acid which your body burns very quickly. It also can act as a blood sugar stabilizer as well as a disease and fungus fighter. For best results use raw, cold pressed coconut oil.
 
2. Mixing coconut oil with peppermint, tea tree, or rosemary essential oils and applying to skin before heading outside can act as a bug repellent.
 
3. If you’re looking for an alternative to deodorant containing aluminum, try rubbing a small amount of coconut oil into under your underarms.
 
4. For dandruff relief massage one or two tablespoons of oil into your scalp. Wait 15 minutes, then rinse.
 
5. Want to remove make up? Dampen washcloth with warm water, add a dime sized amount of coconut oil, then wipe your face. It even takes off waterproof mascara.
 
6. Mix a little coconut oil and baking soda together and you have yourself a whitening toothpaste.
 
7. Rubbing a tiny amount of coconut oil on your lips will keep them moisturized for a long time and they’ll smell awesome.
 
8. Can’t really tolerate a lot of dairy  but need a creamer for your coffee? BAM! Put t coconut oil in it. It will give your coffee a rich creamy flavor and a tropical aroma.
 
9. You can’t believe it’s not butter. Well it’s NOT! It’s coconut oil lol. Great butter substitute.
 
10. Got stretch marks? Coconut oil is a great moisturizer and can reduce stretch marks appearances as well as decrease the appearance of cellulite.

8-Week Transition Diet

I do this right before the holidays:

Week 1

No junk. Eliminate junk food from your diet. That's it, just junk. Other than this, you can eat whatever and whenever you like. The definition of junk is obvious stuff, like potato chips, candy, ice cream, cake, etc. You may be stricter if you'd like, but for Week 1, don't be too hard on yourself. Just stay out of the 7-Eleven®. For many of you, this step alone will reap huge benefits. For more tips READ the article below and let your friends in on the awesomeness (-; Sharing is caring.
