Get In Shape!!!

12 Pounds Gone!!!

I know everyone is ready to get themselves in shape over the summer. Being healthy is a challenge for everyone who have way too much fun being unhealthy.

So far i have officially lost 12 pounds in a month on my journey to get in better shape. The best part of it is that it didn't feel like a real struggle to get to this point. I still ate the same things, i just made sure to portion them out much better. I've made it this far with a bunch of apps that are free to everyone. There are a bunch of different apps available to help people try to get put on the right track.

Everything listed below can be synced together to get a proper evaluation of your body and what will work best for you. 

The first and only purchase i would suggest for anyone is to get a fitness tracker. I personally prefer the Fitbit Flex 2 for the most basic functions. The Fitbit has it's own app associated with the program that can:

  • track your steps taken
  • calories burned
  • hours of sleep
  • water intake
  • food intake
  • exercise
  • weight
  • etc


Lifesum is a app that tracks your food and water intake. My favorite feature by far was that it would alter the amount of water you should intake based on the amount of activity you've done during the day so you won't get dehydrated. Once you log in you will be introduced to these options:


  • Be Healthy
  • Lose Weight
  • Gain Weight



For those who have an iPhone you already have access to the Health app that can't be deleted even if you wanted it to be. Until you get a hang of what works for you this app will keep you in check. This app will track your steps but then you'd have to manually log in weight, sleep, It is not one hundred percent accurate because we tend to sit our phones down sometimes when we need to do things and it doesn't keep track of every step.


Extra Motivation

The last app there to give a extra push of motivation is the Achievemint app. For the people who look at this and think it is ludicrous to try and get to 10,000 points, you need to read the fine details. The more active you are the more points you are able to receive and it will not take years to get your reward. You can also get extra points taking surveys on the website. If you think it's a waste of time i do not blame you, but this app offers you the opportunity to earn something from the activities you are already going to do anyway. You will be making something out of nothing.

Only for the women:

The app "Flo" is there to track your menstrual cycle. It syncs up with the previous apps mentioned and it can predict when your next period will arrive based on your activity and eating habits. That could be another great piece of motivation to get your body back on track to a schedule. Prior to this my period was never really consistent even when taking birth control so this assisted me on getting a better handle on this. This is also helpful for those looking to be parents soon and want to keep track of your ovulations etc.

Tips
  • Drink a glass of water before a meal (Makes you more full so you won't eat as much)
  • Cut out sugars (Candy, Soda, Desserts)

L'Oreal Pure Clay Face Mask (Product Review)

First I must say, if you haven't yet tried the new L'Oreal Pure Clay face masks you should definitely purchase one today. They are one of the most amazing products I have ever used.

I received these masks for free in exchange for a honest review of the product through a site called BzzAgent. This was the first item I had been given to review and I couldn't have been more pleased with what i received.

These three masks are designed to be fit for all skin types, it's just a matter of piecing together which one provides the best results for your skin.
Descriptions of each:

Red Algae - Exfoliants and refines pores. 

Charcoal - Detox and Brightening 

Eucalyptus - Purifies and Mattifies

Each jar is retailed for about $9.28, and there is a sufficient amount of product. I believe customers can get more out of this product than buying individual face masks. I received all three mask variations, which is about $30 I would have gladly spent to make my skin feel the way it does …

LEGION (Season One Review)

The first season of Legion has officially come to a undesirable end!

For all those that know nothing about Legion, He is the son of Professor X. This character falls into the category of antihero with Deadpool because he doesn't take into account the wellbeing of the world before lighting the place up. Legion has a super mutant version of dissociative identity disorder where each of his alternate personas has their own superpowers. So the first season only touches the tip of the iceberg with this creature.

The series is fascinating in many ways that surprised me. It will persuade you to feel as though you are tripping on acid trying to follow along with the missing pieces of time and the main character's perception of his fantasy world mixed with our reality. You will literally be taken through the mind of a man that was told his is schizophrenic for majority of his life. His mental break downs, traumatic experiences, nightmares, his demon is so vividly put on display for th…

PRAYING
Ke$ha has finally come back with her new song titled "Praying". I think this is the happiest I have ever been watching one of her music videos. I almost cried at the intensity of her vocals and being able to see what she can really do as an artist. I've always felt like part of her was holding back and now those chains are off and i'm ready to hear more of her amazing voice.

How great she sounds is only the first good thing about this video. I love how empowering and vulnerable it is. You see the struggle, pain, and her willingness to fight which just made this even more breathtaking. This is beyond what was expected from looking at the cover picture. The video is below for the ones who haven't seen it yet. You will not regret watching this at all if you are a Ke$ha fan.

Her brand new album "Rainbow" is set to be released on August 11th, and I can assure you that I will be listening to every song on there. The anticipation to see this side of he…
