The Effects of Sleep on Weight Loss

nutrition Sep 15, 2017

Do you recognize yourself in the following description? Devoted to living a healthier lifestyle, you eat well, focusing on protein and vegetables. Your workout consistently. Overall, you’ve been maintaining a healthy lifestyle for a long period of time. Yet, there are little to no results, and your efforts seem hopeless.

Most people, wanting to fit into their old jeans, resort to the following plan: Eat less, move more. Through this process however, one forgets a crucial component: Sleep. “Sleep has its fingers in everything from mood to mental capacity to physical well-being” -Dr. W. Christopher Winter, Ph.D., president of Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine. Sleep, (or moreover, lack thereof), can have countless health ramifications. These ramifications in turn may affect, your capacity to exercise regardless of your willingness to, and your body’s cravings for unhealthy foods.

 Although your motivation is high, you may not be physically able...

The Mindset of a Successful Woman

motivation Sep 08, 2017

At R3VOLVELife, mindset plays a huge part in what we teach. We believe that once one is committed to the right mindset, their chances of achieving their goals become twice as likely. A few tips from empowering women is a great place to begin.

 

Learn from Failure

            A successful woman isn’t derailed by setbacks. Rather she is open to them, and sees them as teachable moments that allow for growth and improvement. She analyses her mistakes, so that she is prepared for the next time life challenges her. Most importantly, she never lets it stop her from achieving her goals.

“Failure happens all the time. What makes you better is how you react to it” -Mia Hamm (professional soccer player, Olympic gold medalist, two-time FIFA Woman’s World Cup champion)

 

Be Open to Change

            Change, for anyone in general can be daunting. It is...

5 Ways to Keep Yourself Motivated

motivation Aug 25, 2017

It's so easy to skip your workout when your bed is WAAAAAY to comfy or you are too exhausted from a long day at work, isn't it?

Here are 5 ways to keep yourself motivated, when you want to give in to your excuses:

1.       Get Your Priorities Straight

Stop procrastinating, and telling yourself that you’re doing it tomorrow. Rather that bending and breaking your weight-loss plans because of your life, whether it be time to work out or, time to cook something a little healthier than your usual quick fixes, schedule time in your life NOW.

 

2.       Reward yourself along the way

By celebrating the small achievements, you are gaining something through your journey. This provides motivational reinforcements, when you feel like giving up.  However, don't use food as a reward! (why do we reward ourselves with treats like our pets?!?)  Instead, book a massage, mani or a with a new pair of kicks!

How to Refresh Your Mind to Achieve your Health & Fitness Goal

motivation Aug 24, 2017
 

 Today we will be focusing on Refreshing your mind body and spirit. What we mean by ”Refresh” is maintaining focus on your why when life tires your inspiration and will power. Without a deep Why, every excuse is going to be more powerful.

Two things that your Why usually stems from are: Fear, or Love. 

One of our members shared her story of waking up every morning hoping to begin eating clean. Yet everyday at around 4pm, after a frustrating dispute with her conscience, she can’t help but eat the wrong thing. She therefore asks what she can do to stop herself from giving in. In order to help her with her goal, we stress the importance of the right mindset, because the only person you are in competition with, is yourself. To therefore defeat the discouraging voice in your head, we use a method called the “Your 10 Deep Why”.

You begin with your surface reason, and keep asking yourself why. You’ll know when to stop when your answer is good...

5 Reasons Why You Need To Be Lifting Weights

5 REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO LIFT WEIGHTS...

1) PREVENTS CHEAT MEALS GOING STRAIGHT TO YOUR BELLY FAT

Want to eat that extra piece of pizza without feeling guilty? Lift weights. When you lift weights, you improve your body's metabolism. Studies have shown that an increase in type II muscle fibers can reduce body fat without changes to diet and might be effective in the fight against obesity.

2) FIGHT SYMPTOMS OF DEPRESSION 

Anaerobic exercise, such as weightlifting, show little difference between aerobic exercise, such as running, in terms of how well they relieve symptoms of depression.  After training with weights, an instant release of "feel good" hormones called endorphins and a feeling of accomplishment after you finish your workout helps those feeling symptoms of depression.

3) PREVENT OSTEOPOROSIS

As you get older, you naturally lose muscle and bone mass.  Just as your muscles adapt to the stress of weightlifting by becoming bigger and stronger, your...

3 Major Perks of a Strong, Firm, Perky Butt with Anything Butt

motivation May 03, 2017

Ever wonder why JLO, the Kardashian sisters and Nicki Minaj pay TONS of money on their booty's and have such a HUGE obsession about taking care of their butts?

More than likely it helps to sell their brands, HOWEVER, we want to share with you 3 Perk's to Perking up your behind...

...Check out the 3 P's and why sculpting, toning and firming your butt has major benefits:

 

Powers Your Body

The glutes are the largest muscle group in the body, and produces four distinct actions: extending the hips, swinging the leg outward, rotating the leg laterally, and tilting the pelvis backward.  Whether you're an athlete or a mom chasing after your little ones, strong glutes increase your force and power during everything from sprinting, jumping, squatting to climbing, swinging, and moving from side to side."

Protects Joints

A stronger butt can mean healthier knees, as well as a pain-free lower back and hips. Strong glutes ensure that the femurs track properly over the toes...
