It’s the new year! 2017 is gone and 2018 is here! What are your new years resolutions?
I don’t know about you, but I have big plans for this new year.
I am determined to live my life to the fullest.
That means that I need to be in the very best health I can be.
That is why I decided to get back in shape. I have a secret weapon that got me back in shape FAST and I’m going to share it with you.
I ordered my exercise machine off Amazon, the Gazelle Supreme, so that I can work out at home while watching school lectures on my iPad. That way, I don’t have any excuse to not work out! It’s hard being in school full time and working full time, but I’m determined to stay in shape while I do everything.
I love the Gazelle because it’s easy on my joints (I can’t run thanks to years of dance training wrenching my knees and ankles), it gives me hard core cardio workout and I also get a great all body strength training workout. No more excuses! I told myself that NOW is the best time to get in shape, and this is the easiest way I’ve found.
Now, I don’t have to leave my house to get a badass workout and/or need to jump around to some workout program. And this machine is seriously good for my butt. After using the Gazelle 4-5 times for 30 min I’m-not-kidding when I say my entire butt is lifting and is more solid and I can feel the toning and lifting going on up the back of my legs.
(Ever tried to go to the gym after work and after the grocery store when It’s -30F BELOW outside? It’s not fun. It’s dark here in Alaska where I live for 22 hours a day in the winter and just simply going outside means you have to dress up in a million layers and warm your car for at least 10 minutes before you drive it. It’s so much EASIER to work out at home AND I get to study at the same time.)
Here’s a link to the same Gazelle Supreme that I ordered on Amazon. I bought the supreme model because of the suspension and muscle building resistance it offers that the other models don’t.
I currently live in Alaska and I just want to say how much I love Amazon and Amazon prime shipping. Here in Alaska our shopping choices are limited. My Gazelle showed up quickly, even during the Christmas season and I didn’t have to pay any shipping thanks to Amazon Prime. Life is good!
I also ordered protein powder since I want to build muscles and melt off some of this fat I’ve accumulated since moving back to Alaska.
I don’t use soy protein powder since I believe ingesting any kind of soy products can be dangerous to our hormonal system. I believe disrupting the body’s hormones is a big cause of cancer (I’ll put up a blog post about this soon).
I instead choose whey protein because my body accepts the whey as healthy. I know this because I feel good when I drink my whey protein. I’m sure that some of you might disagree with my choice, but then again your body might have a different make-up then mine due to your heritage/DNA.
What works for one person might not work for another. What I suggest is that you tune in and listen to your body. Your body will always (at first) subtly tell you about its health.
Here’s a protein powder that I use and that I recommend:
I have many more blog posts and an all new YouTube channel coming! Thanks for reading 🙂
