Losing Weight And Living Happily #AMCoffee

Losing Weight Happily


Fitbit flex wireless

We sweat over our losing weight a lot. But I do  not mean the actual sweat loss when we exercise vigorously and getting our heart rate pumped up and going. I am going about real stress that we experience in the process of our losing weight.

You see, many people, no matter how hard they attempt to lose weight, lose their peace of mind instead during this process. They make a rat race out of the weight loss instead.

In real life, the focus should be on a steady weight loss scenario and Experiencing Joy as we do it. As we already know, stress contributes to the stress hormones in our blood stream which prevent us from shedding extra pounds. Thus, we gotta get it that weight loss happens when we focus on some things left outside of our sight. Let’s point out at some of them!

    Working Out All The Time Isn’t Working? Then, Stop It And Do This Instead.

Yes, you read that right. There’s nothing wrong with intense workouts, but if you’re focused solely on traditional exercise, you may be getting less activity than you think.

    “There are 168 hours in the week, says Pasternak,” so if you’re exercising for only three of those, then there are 165 hours of the week that you’re not active—sitting at your desk, sitting in the car, sitting at dinner. That shows you the importance of staying on the move all the time.”

    Pasternak’s recommendation? Invest in a fitness tracker. “I tell all my clients to get a Fitbit to monitor how much—or how little—hey move throughout the day,” he says. “There are several studies that show that people who take at least 10,000 steps a day have more success losing weight than people who actually go to the gym.”


    • I have seen them in the stores and have wanted to try one just to see actually how much I do walk around work, but they are so darn expensive. I hope I am close to that many steps in a day because I do run around work like a chicken with my head chopped off. I do not work out at a gym or at home because after work I am just plain old tired.

    Get Your Precious Snoozies!

    You’ve heard it before, and Harley will say it again: Getting quality sleep is essential if you want to stay slim and happy. In fact, in a recent study from Columbia University, scientists found that people who sleep less than seven hours per night are heavier, gain more weight over time, and have a harder time dropping pounds than those how log more than seven hours of shuteye.

    Pasternak recommends aiming for seven to eight hours per night since research has also linked spending too much time in bed to a higher BMI.

    But we all know that can be much easier said than done. “There are so many reasons we have intermittent sleep or don’t get enough sleep or have trouble falling asleep,” says Pasternak. Here’s his list of the four biggest sleep disrupters (and what you can do about them).

    sleeping and naps

    • I have to admit I am one person who does not get enough rest like I should. I may be tired as can be, but when I lay down I start thinking and have a hard time shutting my brain off.

    Snacking And Drinking Those Energy Drinks? DON’T! Drink Water Instead.

    “If you’re talking about doing exhaustive, long aerobic bouts—like running a marathon or half-marathon—then pre- and post-exercise nutrition is more important,” says Pasternak. “But for regular exercise under 90 minutes, you’re not going to deal with severe glycogen depletion or blood-sugar fluctuations.”

    If you’re hungry and low on energy, then by all means eat a pre-workout snack—but don’t force extra calories because you think you need them. “I tell people who are exercising just to look and feel good to plan your three meals and two snacks a day and then put your workouts in wherever you want,” says Pasternak.

    “And make sure that whatever meal or snack happens to follow your workout contains good-quality protein—like from a balanced smoothie—to help your muscles recover.

    Sugar is Good. But Watch What Kind of Sugar You’re Consuming and How Much!

    “Many people found the original, very-low-carb version of the Atkins diet to be radical and too extreme, but in its essence, it told an important message that the key to slimming down is really just getting rid of the sugar,” says Pasternak. “And though a strict low-carb diet may be difficult to follow for most of us, the messaging was right.” Added sugars have been linked not only to obesity, but also to diabetes, heart disease, and even death.

    “I recommend keeping an eye on your carbs if you’re trying to slim down, and one easy way to ensure your diet isn’t too carb-heavy is to ditch the sweets and processed grains,” says Pasternak. (This sugar-saving supermarket guide will help you fill your grocery cart with foods that are better for your waistline).


    • I do not need to loose any weight, but I do have to be very careful if I do put on extra pounds because of health issues.. So I am very cautious of what I eat.. I now eat very healthy foods now. No more bad stuff for this gal. Okay I do have a cheat day once in a while, but not like I used to be.

    #5 Let Go And Let Those 5 Pounds Be! You’ll Discover Liberation & Freedom To Celebrate & Enjoy Life More

    For one thing, you may be pursuing an unhealthy ideal and don’t really have five pounds to lose. But even if you do need to shed a little to be healthy, the best way to get to your happy weight is to focus on your health, not the scale.

    “I’ll never forget that when I moved to the U.S. from Canada and I had to get health insurance, the insurance companies were charging me a premium because according to the height-weight charts I was morbidly obese,” says Pasternak. “I was 5’11 and weighed 235, and according to the charts, I was 56 pounds overweight—I was lean and healthy, but I just had a lot of muscle mass, which weighs more than fat.”

    So how can you stay on track without weighing yourself? Focus on your habits, not the number. Pasternak recommends making some daily health goals (like the ones he outlines in 5 Pounds) and asking yourself every night if you’ve completed them.

    “If you can answer yes, then that’s success because you have direct control over your behaviors, whereas you don’t have direct control over the scale,” he says. “You’re hoping that your healthy behaviors will show up on the scale, and quite often they do, but not necessarily on our schedule.” And as long as you’re feeling better and looking better, what does it matter what the number says?

    “When I use the term ‘five pounds,’ it’s more of a symbolic five pounds,” says Pasternak. “It’s like, you want to look five pounds lighter, you want to feel five pounds lighter, you want to move five pounds lighter—but that doesn’t necessarily always equate to the scale being five pounds lighter.”
