I was just reading a pretty interesting health & fitness article that quickly sums up 7 reasons why you absolutely must include exercise into your daily life.
The “7 Benefits of Regular Exercise” was written by the Mayo Clinic and offers a simple and straight forward look at some of the reasons we often don’t think about for why we should exercise besides the usual weight loss and toning up.
I think you’ll find them particularly useful to read over on the days where your motivation may be a little low…
Here are the 7 Benefits of Regular Exercise:

I am sitting here at my computer right now sipping on my favorite coffee alternative and I had to tell you about it…
Very few people know about this product and I’m going to dedicate a whole newsletter coming up to the pros and con of caffeine, when to have it, how much, and what all the coffee or espresso lovers out there (like myself) can sip on if we don’t want to infuse caffeine into our veins all day long…
Since you are one The Daily Skinny blog readers you get to hear about it first… it’s called Teeccino and it is actually an all-natural, gluten-free, caffeine-free, coffee alternative that is actually good for you!
I’ll talk more about it later, but I wanted to tell you that my Teeccino hazelnut coffee that I just brewed tastes amazing. I guess you have to really love cappuccinos and coffee to know where I’m coming from…
I was just reading a recently published study that showed how those with higher levels of stress and depression were less likely to work out.
The research study showed that their anxiety, stress, and depression led to less confidence in their ability to get into an exercise program. As a result, the adults in the study were more likely to gain weight and have a more difficult time losing it.
I can tell you from my personal experience as a body transformation coach that everyone who attempts to lose weight is stressed and has anxiety about their weight and how they look. However, the people who make a commitment to themselves and their supporters end up successfully losing weight in the end.
That means even when they don’t feel like exercising they still… continue reading “Stress, Depression, and Weight Gain“
Yesterday I told you about how many people stop doing ordinary forward lunges because of knee pain… well, many of those people (maybe even you) will happy to hear that there is a different version of the lunge that allows many exercisers the ability to complete a lunge pain free.
It’s called the backwards lunge.
Follow the instructions below and just make sure not to lunge too close to the ground with your back leg when you are first starting out. You’ll want to gauge how flexible your back hip flexor and quad muscles are before you try to get a full range of motion where your back knee almost touches the floor.
Here’s how to complete the dumbbell backwards lunge:
1. Hold 2 dumbbells by your sides or just use your own body weight
2. Stand up straight with both with both feet side by side
3. Slowly step back with one leg landing on the ball of the back foot

Looking for the cure to that knee pain you get when you lunge?
You may have tried lunges in the past and had to give them up because of the pain they caused you in your knees…
Well, if that’s the case, I have good news for you.
As long as your doctor hasn’t diagnosed you with degenerative knee issues or any other ailment preventing you from lunging, you may want to try this version of the lunge.
It’s called a backwards lunge and allows you to sit more into your hip and put less pressure on the front knee and leg. This is important because… continue reading “Help, I Can’t Do Lunges…!”
There’s a lot of talk about eating better and exercising daily, but that alone won’t take your fitness to a new level.
You really need to step back and evaluate how you live your life. You need to carefully inspect each hour of your day and look to see what habits you’ve picked up over the years…
Do you start your morning with a high-glycemic juice and a bowl of processed cereal? Or do you skip breakfast because you’re on the go? Decisions like this literally shape the way your day is going to go because they have a huge impact on your energy levels, mood, mindset, and of course your weight.
We all know the old-saying, “you didn’t gain weight or develop your unhealthy habits overnight, so it’s going to take some time to change them…” And even though we may know it, we don’t like to hear that we can’t have that new body today or tomorrow.
So let’s take a step back and look at what we should really try to accomplish.
Beginning a diet and exercise program is a… continue reading “Reshape Your Mind, Reshape Your Body“
I’m dedicating this 2 part series to anyone who has tried a fitness program in the past, but for some reason came up a little short…
Too often I hear stories from people saying that they tried the whole “exercise thing,” but it didn’t end up working for them…
They tried to lose weight by going to the gym and jumping on a treadmill or elliptical for 30 minutes followed by a machine circuit and they didn’t see any real results so they stopped going. They chalked it up to their body being “different” and just figured exercise may work for some people, but not for them.
If this sounds familiar then you or someone you know is definitely short-changing their results and letting themselves off the hook. It’s way too easy to put in a couple of weeks of work and then not see the huge payoff you are looking for… but did you set a realistic goal for yourself in the first place?
One point to keep in mind is that many people try to lose weight without… continue reading “Don’t Just Wing It… (Part 1)”
“Miss one day of practice and you know it. Miss two days and your teacher knows it. Miss three days and everyone knows it.”
Great quote! It especially rings true for you if you’re trying to lose weight or reshape your body… It’s alright to miss a day of working out, but after missing 2 or 3 days your body will begin to show the absences.
Get ready for the week ahead by planning out the times you will be able to workout this week. Make sure you have 5 – 30 minute workouts written in pen in your planner!
