Weight Resistance

Can you lose weight at home? I have about 100 pounds to lose and I really want to lose 50 pounds at home first before going to the gym. Is it possible to lose that much at home doing workout videos, using an elliptical, and a cycling bike? I will also be eating more healthy. I'm just afraid that I won't lose a lot of weight because I'm not in a gym.

Yes, of course you can! You don’t NEED the gym, but I find that working out in a place like that, around people who are working out, is more motivational. All you really need to lose weight and live healthy is yourself.You can lose 50 pounds by the middle of June if you really try. A healthy diet, cardio, and weight resistance (your workout videos) will do just that. Make sure you are in between a healthy calorie range. The more muscle you gain, the more you’ll burn. And make sure you are drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep, things like that effect your metabolism a lot. You can do it (: read more..

Bicycle Crunches-Weight Loss-Exercises-Thighs

Okay. So I am on anon because I am ashamed. I am so overweight its not funny. I'm fairly sure I am okay with my eating. It's my exercise, I really hate exercise in front of people and even in front of my family. My weight is mainly on my stomach and thighs, do you have any suggestions on what I can do? Alone, preferably? Thanks so much. :)

It’s okay to be anon. But I am not judging you and there are many people here who are on the same journey as you and they understand how you feel, none of us here are judging you As far as the Exercises go… You definitely can work out alone. Just make sure that the way and what you eat is really important in Weight Loss. You definitely should be sure that what you are eating is good for your body. If you have doubts, here are some tips. I do recommend doing cardio. So if you want to go on runs or jogs a few days a week, that would be great. If you truly are not ready to work out in front of people, you can do a few things alone. Jumping jacks and jumping rope will help get your heart rate up. Or do those jumping things where you bring each knee up to your chest. I forgot what they are called but if you need more info, I can find something. For Thighs, I always suggest lunges (or walking lunges rather than in place). If you really get into them and do enough, you will feel the burn the next morning. Squats, sitting against the wall, and chair pose will help burn those thighs too. There are some pilates videos focused on the thighs and I can find some of those for you. I also have thigh workouts in the Index of my blog on the Workouts page. That goes for abs too. For abs… Bicycle crunches, reverse crunches, bicycles and reverse bicycles (different from the crunches), flutter kicks, elbow to knee crunches, and Russian crunches (seated side twist) are really effective core work outs. Doing these slow and controlled add the burn and give for a better work out. Those are exercises that you can do in your room with nobody watching. Remember… cardio and really good eating! There are ways to help weight loss like drinking plenty of water, drinking green tea, and other ways. I have some posts on how to boost metabolism and good weight loss stuff in my blog if you go through it all. I hope this helps. If you ever need anything, have any questions… Never hesitate to ask!

Chinese Households-Healthcare System-Exponential Rise-Chronic Disease

China diabetics raise stakes for healthcare reform
American College Of Sports Medicine-Heart Rate Training Zone-The Chronic Diseases
(Blank Headline Received)

BEIJING (Reuters) - In 30 years, the Chinese people have gone from having barely enough to eat to worrying about spreading waistlines, leaving the healthcare system struggling to keep up with an exponential rise in "nobleman diseases" like diabetes. The soaring cost of chronic disease could tax China's effort to offer basic healthcare to 1.4 billion people. Almost one out of every eight Chinese households was racked by catastrophic health expenses in 2011, according to a paper published in medical journal The Lancet. ... read more..
