Measuring Progress & Beating My Score!

When it comes to measuring progress with our health and fitness goals more often than not we only focus on the scales.  While the numbers on the scales do offer some indication of progress, it isn’t always the best and certainly isn’t the only way to measure progress. The scale will only tell you if your weight is up or down. It doesn’t tell you if you have gotten stronger, more flexible, or if your balance, agility, or muscular endurance has improved.

Natural Live Yogurt – Lean Body Secret

Before I start I have to admit that I’m not a huge fan of dairy products. When I use milk my skin gets dry patches and when I eat butter it literally makes my skin crawl. I’m not lactose intolerant but the less I have it the better. Which is why I generally avoid dairy.

So why am I writing about yogurt? Because it is a lot different from regular dairy products. And it’s really, really good for you. Now to avoid any confusion I am not taking about “regular” yogurt. The kind with tons of sugar, fruit flavours, chocolate flavours, added colours, frozen yogurt or the ones with crunchy “bits” that you sprinkle on top.

No, the type of yogurt I’m talking about is real yogurt. Natural, plain, “live” yogurt.

The Secret To Great Abs

Six Pack. Eight Pack. Ripped Abs. Shredded Midsection. Washboard Stomach.

However you want to describe it, there’s no doubt that a firm, tight midsection is something we would all love to have.

Great abs are one body part that both men and women not only desire to have themselves, but find attractive in the opposite sex. Possessing a toned, flat stomach tells people that you are fit, healthy and in peak condition.

Burn Body Fat And Look Younger With Goji Berries

Got your attention? I thought it might. You have probably heard of goji berries, but have you tried them? Unfortunately they have been the victim of over hype since they arrived on the market, which may have put some people off trying them. That’s a real pity because when you look past the hype, they really are an excellent addition to a healthy diet.
