9 Reasons Why People Are Not Able To Always Keep Fit

The world around us is constantly changing. Our personalities and even our looks change throughout our lives. And so do our diet and bodies. Staying healthy is a hard thing to do. Maybe we set a goal and after reaching it, we just move on. Or we just don’t have the energy to keep up with a healthy diet.

The primary goal of keeping fit, however, is to keep healthy, making it even more important to get and stay fit. No matter what your problem may be though,, here are 9 tips to help you stay fit!

1. They do it alone

Exercising alone may be less awkward, but it is a lot harder to stay motivated. You will have to push yourself to work out and eat healthy. When you have a friend with you, they can help you stay on track when it gets harder. A recent study showed that working out with a partner can motivate you to keep going longer. And it is a lot more fun too!

2. They don’t stay hydrated

Water is beneficial in so many ways. It keeps your skin clear, it helps speed up your metabolism, helps you stay focused and much more. It is recommended that an average adult drink roughly two liters of water per day. Not only is it refreshing, but it will help your body to stay fit!

3. They eat too much junk

It is commonly known that fast food is very unhealthy. It contains a lot of carbohydrates and sodium. So logically, if you eat it too much, it will be noticeable on your body (in weight gain) and in your daily health. In the long term, a bad diet can cause heart disease and obesity, among other life altering ailments.

4. They don’t eat balanced meals

To keep your body nurtured, it is important to make sure that you eat the right amount of nutrients. The easiest way to make sure you eat balanced is by using the Healthy Eating Plate. You can also do well to keep track of your meals and see if you reach your daily macronutrients.

5. They don’t build up their exercising

Some people think that they can work toward a goal and then just give up or stay at the same pace. Your body doesn’t work that way. You have to keep up the work that you started to put in. It is a ongoing process to keep your body in shape.

Also, if you do the same workout every time, your body will get used to it. You have to keep building it up, challenging yourself, and sometimes mix it up with other, different exercises.

6. They cut out a portion of the workout

A good workout exists out of five crucial parts: cardio, strength training, core exercises, balance training and stretching. After reaching a goal, some people decide to only continue with the part they like.

This will have the opposite effect of what they want. It will not keep you fit, but your body will start missing the parts it also needs. So make sure your whole workout is balanced in order to keep your body fit!

7. They don’t use the healthy body care products

Yes, you read that right. The products you use on your body can actually have bad toxins in them. Imagine eating healthy, but still not feeling healthy, just because of the products you are using. Do some online research and find a healthier alternative.

Your skin takes in the products you put on in, and it will hold on to unknown components. Your body saves these until it knows what to do, or until it has the opportunity to somehow get rid of it.

8. They are not consistent

Consistency is a big word and it comes with big responsibility. If you are on and off about your workout or your diet, you cannot expect your body to stay in shape. You need to have a regular schedule. See for yourself what time you prefer to work out, and reward yourself or keep score for yourself.

Research fun ways to keep yourself on your workout schedule. Plan meals a week or a few days ahead, so you know you won’t go hungry or binge on unhealthy products.

9. They don’t rest

Overloading your body with exercise is also an issue. Working hard for something you want is a great thing. But doing it too much is not so great. Your muscles need rest, so they can build up both strength and muscle tissue.

When you do strength training, you break down your muscles. The amount of protein that you take in over the next 24-48 hours is the amount of muscle your body can build up. Taking regular rests is essential for a fit and healthy life.

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

1. Camping

A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

2. Staycation

You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

3. Island Getaway

People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

4. Fancy Resort

Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

5. Road Trip

The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

6. Charter a Boat

If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

8. Themed Retreats

There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

9. Working Honeymoon

Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
