 Below are 8 fat burning fitness tips to assist you in reaching your fitness goals to be swimsuit ready 24/7.  Learn to embrace and enjoy exercise, the sooner you do your body will transform faster and with less effort rather than exercising begrudgingly.  

8 SWIMSUIT READY FITNESS TIPS

1.   Weight Training & Intervals: Doing a weightlifting program coupled with intervals—alternating high-intensity bursts of riding a stationary bike or running with a recovery period—is the best way to burn fat faster and transform your physique.  You can do them on separate days or combined to save time and burn more calories.

2.   Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of purified water with branch chain amino acids (BCAA’s) before, during and after exercise.  Keeping the body hydrated will fuel your muscles and give aid in warding off fatigue as well as remove toxins from the body.

3.   Strength Train Often: Alternate doing upper body and lower body exercises at least 3 days a week, every other day is best.  Be sure to do intervals after strength training to burn the deep fat for energy and fat loss. Use free weights to use more muscles and effectiveness.  Free weights cause you to use more muscles than using machines that are designed for one muscle group.

4.   Lift Heavy to Sculpt: Women often choose light weights because they’re afraid they’ll get too big.  The truth is only professional women body builders have the brute strength to lift heavy enough to add major size and volume.

5.   Increase the weight or Reps: Choose a weight that you can definitely lift eight, maybe 10, but definitely not 12 times.  Do 10 reps in a set the first time, then 12, then 15, and once you're doing sets of 15, increase the weight and go back to 10 reps per set.

6.   Form is Everything: Proper form is everything when lifting weights. Always lift in front of a mirror.  If you aren’t sure how to lift correctly look up the exercise online there are tons of articles and images to choose from, print them off and place then were you can referred to them easily, or hire a fitness coach to help you.

7.   Fuel Your Body with the Foods it Needs:  If you truly want to look lean by summer then eat what your body craves--good, whole nutrition. Eat plenty of lean protein, fresh fruit, veggies and clean fats such as flax seed oil or fish oil and raw almonds. 
     As I always say, "If God did not make it don’t eat it."  Processed foods are filled with toxins, stay clear of all junk food, it will only make you tired, stressed, fatigues and you will have to workout harder in the gym to see little progress if any.  Proper nutrition is essential when living a LivFit Lifestyle.

8.   Log Your Success: Keep a diet and fitness log in addition to a gratitude journal. Each day write what you ate and what exercises you did, along with how you felt and how proud you were of yourself.  
     And there you have it, simple tips to achieve amazing results.  As with all goals, follow through ~ consistency is key to achieving fitness success! If you commit to working out then workout! Leave the excuses behind and hit the gym each weekday morning.
     By following these fitness tips along with having a positive mental attitude about how awesome your body is now your subconscious mind will create new beliefs which support your heart’s desires of achieve fitness success. 
By doing these fitness tips you will be able to transform your physique and feel confident in and out of the pool. 
Plan ahead make your workouts count and eat smart and before you know it you will be stronger, leaner and more confident in your swimsuit than ever before!

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY
"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
