A pool might not be the first place you think of going when you’re looking to shape up and slim down—but perhaps it should be. No other workout burns calories, boosts metabolism, and firms every muscle in your body (without putting stress on your joints) better than a swimming workout.
These are a few workouts if you’re interested in using the pool to get some exercise:
Breaststroke: Sweep through. Reach your arms overhead, palms together. Rotating your palms outward, pull down until your hands are nearly level with your chin. Bring your hands inward by your chest, then reach again. Whip it. Bend your knees and bring your heels toward your butt. Turn your toes outward and kick your legs back and together (like a frog) as you extend your arms forward.
Backstroke: Eyes up. Look straight up at the sky or ceiling—not at your toes, which causes your hips to sink—so your head is in line with your spine. Make a Y. Reach back with each arm at a 45-degree angle to your body; it places less stress on your shoulders and makes your stroke stronger.
Freestyle is also fan favorite because it’s easy to learn and it burns major calories, as do all these exercises.The swimming pool is a great place to burn calories and build muscle. If you’re a generally adventurous person, swim workouts can also be very helpful should you ever be in a situation where they can be applied to safety.
Build Some Muscle to Lose Weight
As we age many of us begin to gain weight. As adults, if we do not do strength training exercises, we lose muscle mass. Muscle is very dense and takes up less room than fat. Muscle requires fuel, fuel as in calories. Therefore in order to stay lean we need to keep some muscle.
It is recommended to strength train 3-4 times per week. If you are just beginning, start out with light weights. Don’t overdo it to cause injury. The goal is to strengthen slowly.
Check with your doctor to make sure you are physically able to do the exercises. Your doctor should be able to give you guidelines.

Many experts suggest drinking eight 8 oz glasses of water per day. Some suggest half your body weight in fluid ounces per day.
Make sure to drink more water when exercising. Muscles do not work as well when they are dehydrated. Fuel up with at least 8 ounces before you exercise and sip throughout your workout.
Water is calorie free. If you would like to lose weight, swap soda and other higher calorie drinks for water.
Make water your beverage of choice! It will not only keep you energized, water can help keep your skin looking youthful.
All good reasons why you should drink more water!:-)
What is Clean Eating?
Choosing whole, healthy and fresh foods will help your body, skin, and soul grow healthy and give you endless energy. Clean foods are natural, free of added sugars, hydrogenated fats, trans-fats and anything that is unnatural. Eating well is important for a long and healthy life and clean eating is essential to your diet. Clean eating includes eating fresh foods and vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins, and not eating processed or fast food.
Some clean eating steps to follow:
1.Eat fruits and vegetables.
2.Balance protein and complex carbohydrates.
3. Avoid soda and high calorie sugary drinks.
4. Trade bad fats for good fats in your diet.
5.Eat several small meals a day.
Reading labels on food products for calorie counts, nutritional value, and ingredients is beneficial for deciding which food
Answer: People who try to slim down often try to cut out all indulgent foods, but eventually, this approach backfires. If you’re following an overly restrictive diet, you’re more likely to go overboard on your vices. Cutting out your vices completely can activate the brain’s stress system, making you want to eat those foods even more.
Losing pounds and keeping them off depends on learning to balance your diet without depriving yourself, and eating in a way you can maintain. Try following the 80-20 rule. Eat great 80 percent of the time, and allow room for small treats the other 20 percent. As long as you are reducing your overall intake, you don’t need to nix any one food from your diet.
Hypnotherapy can help you!
For most people, the absolute worst way to attempt to deal with a smoking habit is through the use of willpower. Like moods and emotions, willpower fluctuates. One day it is strong, the next day it may not be. Willpower is usually neither consistent nor effective.
Among stop-smoking procedures there are countless methods, programs, substitute products, pills, chewing gum, self-help CDs and books and the list goes on. Many are designed to help build up the personal power to resist or overcome the addiction. Hypnotherapy does not work at achieving the strength to resist. It is designed to eliminate the desire. Instead of giving up something the person enjoys (a sacrifice), the individual’s goal is to be rid of something that isn’t wanted – a much more agreeable position.
Hypnosis is one of the safest and most effective ways to quit smoking permanently. We are very happy to say that the vast majority of those who have used our program quit smoking after the very first session. Most have little or no withdrawals or weight gain.
I have helped thousands quit smoking permanently. You can too!
