What is a good beginner workout to lose weight? These 2 exercise programs helped me lose 50 Pounds!


So you’re trying to start a new workout regimen as a beginner but you don’t know where to start?

It can seem totally overwhelming especially if you’ve never worked out or it’s just been years since you’ve done it.

At the start of my weight loss journey, I remember staring at the treadmill knowing I should get on it or start some sort of workout program but finding it hard to literally put one foot in front of another.

50 pounds later, I can say it was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Once you start seeing results I know you’ll feel the same.

Just so you won’t be in suspense, the two workouts that I recommend for weight loss beginners are Leslie Sansone’s Walk At Home DVDs & Turbo Fire From BeachBody.

If you haven’t heard of these programs then just stick around because I’ll explain more later.

In today’s post I’m going to answer these questions for you:

How long do you have to work out before you start losing weight?

-Is the 7-minute workout good for weight loss?

-Is working out 30 minutes a day enough to lose weight?

I can’t lie…

I got emotional while I was creating this grief journal and I’m not even grieving the loss of a loved one.

That’s how powerful these prompts are.

I looked them over and it tore me up thinking about how I might need these prompts one day when I experience the pain of loss.

That is why I created this journal…to help people heal in a healthy way.

You see what many of us want to do when we are wheeling from losing a loved one is bury the pain.

Maybe then the pain will go away.

Maybe then you won’t hurt so bad.

But let me tell you.

That don’t work.

Why You Should Use Superfood Powders & 3 Ways To Sneak Them Into Your Diet!

what are superfoods and how do you eat more of them?

Why you should use superfood powders & how do you use/sneak them into your diet

Hey ya’ll,

Have you taken a look at your diet lately? Perhaps you have and found it to be less than stellar.

I can certainly relate.

If you’ve been researching things like healthy eating, plant-based diets, flexitarian diets then you’ve probably come across the term superfoods.

And while you may have heard of superfoods what you may not have heard of are superfood powders.

So I’m going to talk about that today because what I think you’ll find is that superfood powders are a lot easier to fit into your diet than superfoods themselves and they still make a huge difference in your health.

Let’s get a little sneak peek at what’s coming up in this blog post.

We’re going to talk about:

– What superfoods are

– What superfood powders are

– Do superfood powders work

– Benefits I’ve Experienced Since Using Superfood Powders

– Awesome superfood powders to try

-How to get more of them into your diet.

Plus I have a free healthy living resource library full of things that I believe you will love so stay tuned for that coming up later as well.

7 Anxiety-Reducing Activities To Help You Cope With Stress (Unique Method)!

Top 7 Ways To Reduce Stress & Anxiety

Have you ever lived with something so long that you begin to think it’s normal?

Then you get a clue and you’re like wait I’m not meant to live like this!

I had that realization this week about anxiety.

Although I’ve overcome depression completely and given anxiety more than a few punches, I still am not completely free and I’m guessing you’re not either.

I guess I thought hey as long as my anxiety isn’t paralyzing like it was before then it’s ok to have some anxiety.

But why though?

The goal should be to beat anxiety in the face and win the fight, not settle for being less anxious.

There’s a reason why Jesus said don’t worry over and over again.

He doesn’t want us to use precious brain cells and time worrying when we could be praying to the Father and getting real results.

So in today’s post, I’m going to talk about some anxiety-reducing activities and tips to start beating stress for good.

These are some of the ways that I’ve used to help me at least get a strong grip on anxiety.

But first I’m going to tell you HOW to use these tips because that’s equally as important.
