SweatPink Grokker Mad Lib!

I’m so excited to rack up more minutes using video workouts from Grokker! There’s everything from Yoga and Barre to Cardio for everyone from beginners to advanced, and I’m especially pumped to try Barre HIIT because it will make me extra sweaty and toned.

I plan to do my video workout in my office or upstairs living {depending how hot it is} before my nightly 5k with the hubby and after family dinner. My favorite thing about video workouts is that they are at my finger tips when ever I want a awesome workout, and they’re a super convenient way to get sweaty when I’m feeling lazy.

My goal is to hit 500 minutes this week!. I’ll do Cardio Kick Fitness HIIT 2 & Barre HIIT on one of my more intense workout days, and Yoga –Tight Hip Pain Relief & Yoga – Upper Back Pain Relief,  on a rest or lower intensity day.  I challenge my SweatPink sisters to beat my # of minutes or to do  Cardio Kick Fitness HIIT 2 & Barre HIIT with me!

Kick your metabolism into gear!

metab

I can virtually guarantee that at some point you have heard the word “metabolism”,  more than likely you have heard individuals talking about their “slow” or “fast” metabolisms. Not quite sure exactly what a metabolism is or does? No worries I’ve got you covered!

Your metabolism is the internal system that turns what you eat and drink into energy. Metabolisms can fluctuate by speeding up or slowing down. Since we want in to stay sped up the question is how can we maintain a fast metabolism or signal to our body to start speeding up and burn fat? Believe it or not it is actually fairly easy! Here are five great ways to kick your metabolism into gear!

SLEEP:

Sleep helps you body perform at optimum level during the day. Sleep deprivation can actually tell your metabolism to slow down and we don’t want that!!

DRINK WATER:

Drinking water can actually speed up your metabolism so when you hear “Drink 8 glasses or more of water a day” DO IT!

EAT SMALL MEALS:

By eating 3-4 small meals a day your metabolism keep burning fat for hours!

EAT HEALTHY FATS:

Like…

  • Avocado
  • Coconut Oil
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Flaxseed
  • Olive Oil
  • Olives
