How to Maintain Workouts Despite Busyness--Or Laziness

mylifeinapyramid.com
If you're so, so busy like I am, you probably sometimes struggle about keeping your workout routine. I have that problem a lot of times, especially when I get sick and have stopped working out for a while and then about to start again. I feel like not starting again.

Or, the rainy days take over and it's so cold and all you want is to stay in bed and watch DVDs and eat.

Or, you are attending a seminar that makes you go home late at night and prods you to wake up so early in the morning--for 4 straight days! You feel like resting to the max after that and then feeling unable to start working out again.

What do you do?

In my case, I watch a lot of martial arts on Youtube or watch martial arts movies. I get inspired and want to get back to working out pronto. I see the well carved bodies of the protagonists and want to achieve something like that--so I hit the gym again, which is my garage.

In short, you need inspiration. Where do you get it? I easily get it from watching videos which are easily accessible online. Sometimes I watch videos on pull-ups or horizontal bars like this one:


Now, who wouldn't be inspired after watching that?

Or, I often watch fit martial artists do their thing. This is one of my favorites. Lee never fails to inspire my workouts, particularly in this scene. Each time I see this, I can't wait to workout at once:



And look at how Donnie Yen does his workout with a graceful physique:



You spend nothing to be inspired by such videos--except electric consumption, of course. It's definitely for cheap health and fitness with middle income budget. So, every time you feel like skipping your workouts due to busyness or laziness, just watch a video.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…
