Keep Pressing Onward..

Published October 25, 2011 by gettingherfit

Many of us make decisions to start something or make a change in our lives but did you know that only about 5% actually do something about it.  If you are doing the 21 Day program guess what?  You are in the 5% and should be proud, you have decided to make a change for the better, any change is good that means that you are tired of the old.  Maybe you keep doing the same thing over and over again but never see anything happening well stop doing what doesn’t work and start doing something different.

Sometimes change requires a little pain, whether it be emotional or physical that’s normal, like losing weight if it was easy and didn’t require some pain we’d all be skinny right?  It’s painful changing our habits but it is necessary you will get through it you just have to stick to it.

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or and hour or a day, or a year, BUT eventually it will subside and something else will take its place.  If I quit, however, it will last forever.”   –Lance Armstrong

Deal with a little pain if you really want it!!

Food to Help You Get Lean and Build Muscle…

Published October 12, 2011 by gettingherfit

Here is a great article I read by Mike Geary….Enjoy

In most of my Lean-Body Secrets Newsletters, I like to provide a healthy snack or meal recipe that not only is delicious and healthy, but also helps to get you closer to that hard-body appearance that everyone is looking for, while also more importantly, improving your health for life. In this article, I’d like to give you healthy food ideas in a different way. This time, I figured I’d just give you some ideas of what I stock my fridge and cabinets with.

Remember, if you don’t have junk around the house, you’re less likely to eat junk!  If all you have is healthy nutritious foods around the house, you’re forced to make smart choices. Basically, it all starts with making smart choices and avoiding temptations when you make your grocery store trip. Now these are just some of my personal preferences, but perhaps they will give you some good ideas that you’ll enjoy.

Some of these will be obvious healthy choices, such as fruits and veggies… however, others on this page I think will surprise you!

Alright, so let’s start with the fridge. Each week, I try to make sure I’m loaded up with lots of varieties of fresh vegetables.   To Read more …

Even Dr. Oz Recommends Advocare Omega’s

Published October 10, 2011 by gettingherfit
World-Wide Host Dr. Oz recognizes and reccommends Advocare’s OmegaPlex, Probiotic Restore Ultra!
After investigating popular nutritional supplements on the market and finding shocking results, Dr. Oz recommends OUR products so that you avoid dangerous nutritional solutions and ensure that you and your family are only putting the highest quality products in your bodies, as well as, actually getting the benefits that you are paying for!
Their research showed what we are already well aware of, that not all “fish oils” are created equal! The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are the brain-boosting, heart-healthy good fats that have a multitude of anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties. Unfortunately, most people are not getting the benefits they think they are. Over 30% of the fish oil supplements tested failed for either containing less of the omega-3s than the bottle had promised, or for being spoiled. That, in and of itself, is scary! AdvoCare’s Omegaplex Omega-3s not only passed ConsumerLab.com’s tests but was one of ONLY two “omegas” reccomended by Dr. Oz himself!
Furthermore, the results on probiotics were just as alarming.  Probiotics are “good bacteria” used to prevent and alleviate many different conditions but particularly those that affect the gastrointestinal tract. Of all the products they tested, more than half of the products did not contain the labeled amount of probiotics, and one contained as little as 7% of its listed amount! AdvoCare’s Probiotic Restore Ultra is the ONLY one that contained the necessary quantity of “bacteria” and accurately listed on the label.
Just in case our information escaped you, or Informed Choice wasn’t enough, now Dr. Oz and yet another source confirms that the quality and benefits of AdvoCare’s supplements are second to none!
