Weightloss journey is hard. Don’t believe anyone who says that it isn’t. Don’t trust anyone or anything that says that you can lose weight fast without much struggle or effort, they are lying. It takes time, courage, dedication. The hardest thing is probably trying to change your diet & learn to exercise portion control. At least it is like that for me. It is never easy to change your eating habits that you have acquired for all your life. To some of you, eating healthy is totally new and you will be afraid to try out new things you’ve never eaten. It’s almost a struggle everyday and trying to say no to things you are used to eating or want to have. 
But you know what? At the end of the day, weightloss is something that is possible. You will experience ups and downs, you will experience plateau, you will feel like giving up, you will feel like it is impossible. But at the end of the day, your efforts will be paid off. Your body doesn’t lie, it is the most accurate journal of your eating habits and the workouts you do. It will pay off. Just commit to it for 3 months. Believe me, 3 months can do wonders. Let’s do this together & let’s forget our past failures. Let’s do this all over again. Let’s watch what we eat and exercise. You can do this.

It’s summer and it’s hot as hell (I’m in Arizona, so that statement is legitimately accurate). But while it’s too hot to run outside, the treadmill gets boring and I always wonder how the hell anyone could read a damn book/magazine while they’re running. So if you’re like me and need different entertainment… Here is a list to help you with your treadmill struggles.
Race the people next to you.
Copy literally every movement the person next to you does.
Pretend that you are singing the song that is playing to a massive arena filled with people and they are all singing along and you are totally more famous than Ellie Goulding and you’re a star.
Realize that you actually are a star (in your own special way).
Make up elaborate back stories for every person you see in the gym.
Combine the stories to create a really epic battle and/or romantic comedy.
Listen to audio books.
Remember you have homework and start profusely sweating from stress and not from the run.
Force your friends to go to the gym with you so you can talk to them.
Force your boyfriend to go to the gym with you so you can talk to them.
Talk to yourself because you have no friends to workout with.
Wonder if the reason you have no friends is because you talk to yourself in public places.
Realize you don’t care
Watch a TV show.
Think about the vast and terrifying future.
Think about all the cute clothes you are going to buy after you are shredded from this workout.
Go back to conversations from the past where you didn’t have a good come back and make up a really good one.
Be mad that you didn’t think of it sooner.
Decide which guys in the room you would hook up with given the chance.
Do the same for girls (look I’m straight but if I saw Olivia Wilde at the gym I’d still try to get it).
Think about what you will name your future children.
Or dogs.
Come up with some really insightful conversation starters to have in the future.
Forget them by the time you’re done running.
Picture Chris Evans running directly in front of you.
Picture Chris Evans running directly in front of you… Naked.
Try to hide the fact that you are picturing Channing Tatum naked.
Do the same for Ryan Gosling.
And Channing Tatum.
Think about the delicious (and healthy) meal you are going to eat after this amazing workout.
Dance like no one is watching.
Dance like people are watching and just don’t give a fuck.
Pretend you are currently running an Olympic race and someone from Team Canada is right on your tail and if you don’t finish running that damn Canadian and her bacon are going to catch you.
Just run and zone out and let those endorphins kick in because endorphins make you happy and happy people just don’t shoot their husbands. They just don’t.

10 Good Reasons to Try Yoga

By: Mia
Originating in India thousands of years ago, yoga has become an increasingly popular form of exercise and stress reduction. The chances are the thought of taking a class and seeing how you like it has crossed your mind. So here are 10 good reasons to try yoga:
1. Yoga improves your flexibility and reduces your risk of injury 
2. To reduce stress, yoga focuses on your breathing and movements. 
3. Gain strength and stamina. More vigorous styles of yoga, such as Vinyasa and Ashtanga, promote strength and stamina as well as flexibility and relaxation.
4. Improving your balance and stability. Balancing poses require you to engage your core stabiliser muscles, which can help improve overall stability.
5. To improve your posture. Yoga poses strengthen and open tight areas of the body, such as the shoulders and muscles of the upper back, which is necessary for good posture.
6. Improved Breathing. One of the first things you will learn in yoga class is the correct way to breath. These slower, deeper breathes increase the amount of oxygen in your blood while helping to improve the efficiency of your lungs.
7. To help with pain relief. Yoga can help you ease several different pains through the combination of physical stretching, body awareness, and mental relaxation.
8. Weight Loss. Yes, yoga helps you burn calories and reduce cortisol levels, both of which are extremely important when trying to lose or control your weight. Additionally, yoga classes will help you improve your eating habits by encouraging a healthier lifestyle and diet.
9. Help you achieve greater focus. Do not underestimate the positive mental effects that yoga will have on your brain. The principles you will learn will help you relax, focus on the present, become more aware of your surroundings, and generally improve your outlook on life.
10. Eat healthier. Nothing is worse than eating a greasy burger and fries after an intense yoga class. Scratch that — reverse it. Nothing is worse than an intense yoga class after eating a greasy burger and fries. With continued practice, yoga makes your body feel so wholesome and healthy, you’ll think twice before you fill it with unhealthy junk foods.
