How to Start Using a Workout without Weights

If you’ve gotten into a workout rut it’s time for a change. Doing the same exercise for each muscle group or going on the same run each day will start to have less of an impact on your health because your body becomes used to the exercise and thus expends less energy completing the movement. If you’ve ever reached this point, often if you’ve become noticeably bored with your routine, it can help to add some bodyweight exercises and start create a workout without weights.

Even if you’re just starting it’s easy to start working boot camp exercises or other elements of a weight free workout into your day. If you’re used to lifting weights for your chest or back, try switching one of the exercises with pull ups (or assisted pull ups) or adding in push ups instead of bench press. Push ups are great because they have infinite variations like clapping push ups, incline/decline pushups (use a block), slow push ups etc.

You’ll find adding in these exercises will not only make your workout more challenging but also workout other muscles in your body less commonly worked doing weighted exercises like your core. If you’re big into cardio try switching up your training style, running intervals instead of long distance, going up and down hills or varying up the type of cardio between biking, running or rowing.

Lose Weight Fast and Effectively!

How_To_Lose_Weight_Fast_Safely_and_Effectively

The folks over at Prevention Magazine (and every other weight loss product marketer) have apparently discovered the magic pill for fast, permanent, effective proven weight loss success. AND! The best part? It’s free!!! No, really…..
Excuse the misleading sales pitch but hey – I had to get you to read this blog post! I’ve done the same thing too many diet plan marketers do!
One of the reasons I struggled with weight loss had to do with the fact that I expected a quicker rate of loss than I was getting. The media bombards us with messages suggesting that weight loss can be fast and easy. Why? Because we are all basically impatient – especially in terms of weight loss. They know that’s what we want and will jump at the chance to have that without even thinking about it!
When I wanted a faster rate of weight loss I ate less – because hey, “Eat less, exercise more” is common knowledge. Is this “common knowledge” correct? Effective? Maybe yes, maybe no. First I’d need to know how many calories you were consuming, how much exercise you do, and how many calories your body requires to maintain its current weight at that activity level.

Live it, Love it, and Make it Great.

I have to come to terms with the necessity of being an active blogger. Writing about my experiences has just never been a priority for me. The word ‘blogger’ has attained a certain sickening connotation in my mind; hearing it instantly conjures the image of a whining teenager complaining or gloating about some minor event that bears absolutely no relevance or interest to whoever is unlucky enough to read about it.

But I have to ask myself: Do I refuse to write because of my level of disdain for that type of ego-tripping nonsense? Or am I afraid that in the effort of trying to attain a deeper-level of thought that I will incidentally prove that I am in fact nothing more than that which I so loathe?

I gotta say… both. It must be. I know that I am capable of both irritating whining as well as intelligent ideas. However, there is another key component the lack of which acts as my true barrier. Confidence. Confidence that I will be able to discern between a well-written, comprehensive and interesting thesis; and confidence to not care when I am sometimes unable to restrict my writing to something meaningful to others.

Learning Isn’t Doing – I Must Take Action

There are aspects of my work life that I find very easy and pleasant, and others where I’m conscious I have some real weaknesses. One of my greatest failings is that I enjoy learning about a new subject — a new internet marketing technique for instance — much more than I enjoy getting down to work.

I can read and read for hours about article marketing; AdSense arbitrage; affiliate marketing; PPC campaigns; niche blogging; list building; and on, and on. I’ve become quite an expert on many of these subjects, although I’ve no list and I’ve done precious little affiliate sales.

I’m not sure exactly why I find it so hard to take action. I don’t think the pop-psych generalities are necessarily accurate in my case … I’m certainly not afraid of success, nor do I believe that I’m incapable of achieving good work.

Part of the problem, I believe, is that I like to fully understand something before I start working on it. I’m one of the mythical customers who actually reads the manual … I’ve never been willing to just jump in, get to work, and learn new software as I go. At least, not in a situation where the results actually matter; if I’m investing time and resources in order to make money, I don’t want to get things wrong.

On time

Need more time?

You could invest hours into research with Jules Verne, see if he whispers in your ear the secrets of time travel. Or Potter? With his time turner and the ability to disapparate.

Or maybe sleep is the answer? You get up earlier, stay awake later, work into the night while your wee ones sleep? Creep silently up the stairs and slip into bed, being carefully not to wake him with your cold feet. What time did you come to bed, he’ll ask next morning. Ummm, can’t remember. 12ish? ‘Ish’ is a great fudger of the truth. It gives space to stretch the time, just a little.

And thanks to the wonders of 24 hour television, maybe it can babysit our kids while we work. Free sitters are always good right?

“Hang on ..” “In a minute ..” “Just a sec ..”

How to Donate Money in a Healthy Way

8-ways-to-save-money-blog

A new University of Copenhagen study reveals that people who are deprived of donating substantial sums of money suffer from various afflictions ranging from sleep disorder and frequent episodes of severe depression to kidney stones.

“The study showed test subjects had diminished cognitive abilities during the donation-free period”, said Uschi Znamenak, lead study author. The overall functionality of the body-mind system is decreased by at least 25%.

“This is the first time anyone in the world has quantified the effects of donating deprivation,” said Znamenak’s assistant, Soeren Krakengaard. “The most evident example is the test group 2. Before the test itself, we subconsciously questioned them to confirm that they hadn’t been donating for at least 5 years. Subconsciously – which is the key term here – they were exposed to seeing various subliminal advertisements, web pages and alike offering the relieving opportunity to send money away. However, the direct connection to the subject of the charity was at least confusing, not to say distressing.”
