So I’m starting to notice things on my body that was never there before. I use to weigh a 127 but because of the “freshmen 15”, I now weigh 135 and I am not comfortable with my body. What are some things I can do to at least tone up? I try walking my dogs everyday but I dont feel like its been working and I have been doing this off and on for a little over a month now.

I walk the dogs for about 45 minutes just around the block. What i started to realize is that when I first wake up around 11, I should eat so that why when i get hungry again it will be around 7 and I wont be hungry the rest of the night. Instead of waiting until 3 to eat and then getting hungry around 8 or 9.

Also if you want to tone up exercise for at least an our 3-5 times a week. I’ve been doing that, and I’ve been drinking plenty of water, and so far I’ve seen positive results.
Also what the girl above is saying – coco butter and lots of it. ahah I have some at my house that I just started using because my sister has been getting positive results with it.

That’s so great that you’ve taken the big step to try and exercise. I feel where your coming from, I have weight issues too and it goes up and down alll the time. My advice is that even though you may have gain a little weight, you don’t need to be a certain weight. As long as your eating right and exercising and basically healthy, your perfect. My mom always tells me the number doesn’t matter, its just what you see in the mirror and how you feel about yourself! :)

YOGA gets the blood flowing and tones, but can still be pretty easy. the marks are from your body storing the wrong things

There are loads of things you can do!

Though just walking the dog might not be enough to tone :)
What I recommend is go for a run, go as fast as you can and measure your heart rate.
Now next time you walk the dog, for an effective fat burn session, you need your heart rate to be about 65% of your maximum. So basically a brisk walk, and the dog will love the change of pace ;)

As for toning, well you need to exercise your muscles for that. I like pilates for that.

Hi there,

I was wondering if I could get some info for banner advertising (Ideally a site wide, un-rotated banner ad) on your site?

We would like to do a test buy as soon as possible.

Thanks very much,

I know what you are talking about. When I was a freshman I put on a lot of weight and gained stretch marks on my inner thighs. I’m dealing with them ever since.
Honestly I don’t know what you can do about those stretch marks.

Cellulite will never really go away unfortunately. But you can make it’s appearance less by toning up. I found that the easiest way to lose weight comfortable was to eat 6 300 calorie meals a day. So I would have breakfast, a snack, lunch, a snack, dinner, and a snack. It keeps your blood sugar even so you don’t have those periods where you feel ravenous and eat whatever food is in sight.

Any kind of exercise for 30 minutes a day will also help too. If you want to do it while walking your dogs, try doing quick walking with 1 minute bursts of sprint runs. I’ve heard doing intervals like that burn a lot of calories.

Obviously, something changed if you have only recently put on weight. You need to be honest with yourself about how your lifestyle is effecting your health. Those extra pounds aren’t just an aesthetic issue, they greatly effect your longevity and overall health.

Moving your body is essential to good health and a beautiful body, of course. And, lifting weights is vital to your bone health and gives you that youthful, healthy look to your skin. Everyone needs to move everyday! For now, just focus on ten minutes everyday…start from there and add more time as you get used to this new habit. Once you push past the period where exercise is strange and uncomfortable, you will being to benefit from it and love it. Moving your body will become an integral part of your day, like eating, sleeping and brushing your teeth.

You are what you eat. Your body is made up of the food your consume. It isn’t all about what’s yummy or what’s boring. You can re-train your taste buds to enjoy the food that prevents disease, creates a healthy body, and helps you to maintain an appropriate weight. Leafy greens, fruit and vegetables are foods with the most cancer-fighting, health promoting nutrients. Eat them in abundance at every single meal.

Here are a few articles/blogs that might inspire you.
