7 Ways to Achieve Your Fitness Results - Guest Post

There are many obstacles on the path to fitness results. You lose motivation, don’t have the time or simply don’t know how to get there. There are several factors you need to keep in mind when setting your fitness goals in order to achieve any kind of results. Read our 7 suggestions that can help you reach your fitness goals whatever they may be.
1. Be realistic about your goals
If you haven’t exercised in a while, don’t expect to have the energy for a 30 minute run right away. For starters, set small achievable goals. Small goals will make your obstacles look easy to conquer and you won’t end up feeling overwhelmed which can suck out your motivation. You can also set up long term and short term goals to organize your fitness workout. The American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association recommends that adults need moderate intensity exercising for a minimum of 30 minutes, 5 days a week or vigorous exercising for 20 minutes, 3 days a week.
2. Make it a daily routine
Of course, if you want to achieve any fitness goals, you need to find the time to do so. Exercising should become a part of your daily routine if you want any results. You can also make fitness part of your daily habit by making small changes in the ways you go about your day. Go to work by foot if your job is a 30-minute walk away. Take the stair instead of the elevator. Also, make a new diet plan to go along your fitness routine. Eating is your daily habit and the best diet plan should be a must in any fitness routine. If you’re trying to lose weight, cut on carbohydrates and sugars and increase the vegetables in your diet. If your goal is to build muscles mass, protein is a must in your diet.
3. Have fun along the way
To stay motivated, your exercising plan has to be fun. Your exercising plan should go along with your personality to be fun. Another way you can make exercising fun is by listening to music. A study published in the US periodical Journal of Sport & Exercise Psychology found that music increases physical endurance by 15% as revealed by the Brunel University's School of Sport and Education. The participants of the study listened to motivational music that included tracks from Queen, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Madonna and they’ve reported they had more pleasure with exercising as a result.
4. Don’t let challenges take away your motivation
Sometimes our work, life, and obligations can become so overwhelming that we can hardly find the time for ourselves. Set realistic goals and try to find the balance between your life obligations and your obligations towards your body. If, on the other hand, you suffer from an illness that is taking a toll on your ability to stay fit, know that there is a fitness routine for many health obstacles. For instance, patients with psoriatic arthritis were found in one study to benefit from a motivational exercise program. The psoriatic arthritis causes cannot be prevented with exercising, but symptoms can be reduced if you stay motivated to exercise.
5. Reward yourself
You can reward yourself with internal praise after each exercise session or maybe even with a healthy snack or a time off after you’ve achieved your daily goal. But speaking from a scientific point of view, exercising in itself is a reward. According to one study on the differences between brains reaction to monetary reward and the reward of exercising, scientists have measured that our brains’ reward system is activated after exercising rather than money. So after each excerising session, take the time to indulge in the pleasant feeling you get from reaching your daily goals.
6. Buy more exercise apparel
As silly as it sounds, a great way of making exercising a daily habit is by investing in new tracksuits and sneakers. Having enough exercising clothes is not just practical but you’ll be able to shape your identity around it. Putting your personal mark on the way you dress when working out will make exercising seem like a big part of your life and identity.
7. Don’t look at others
Trying to find motivation by comparing yourself to others is not the way to go when you want to reach your fitness goals. This is especially true if you are looking at pictures of perfect bodies of athletes as your inspiration. Look at yourself as a unique individual on a unique fitness path.

Achieving fitness results is easy once you get motivated. Fitness should not be an afterthought in your daily routine or a burden you have to endure. Exercising should be a part of life just like eating, working and sleeping. Your life and health depend on it. Take these 7 tips as rough guidelines for reaching your fitness goals.

NeoCell Beauty Bursts and Glow Matrix Review

A healthy, gorgeous glow and juicy vibrant, younger looking skin is what we all strive for and try to achieve.  So when NeoCell contacted me about reviewing their exclusive collagen products, I couldn't wait!  Collagen is what keeps our skin looking vibrant, young and youthful.  So if you're looking for fast results for a more youthful, brighter you, read on because NeoCell's high quality Collagen products are definitely going to help you achieve those results.  

Here is my review of the NeoCell Glow Matrix and Beauty Bursts collagen products.

NeoCell's Glow Matrix provides scientifically advanced ingredients designed to internally hydrate the skin.  Their premium formula supports the skin’s lipid barrier which helps to lock in moisture and smooth the skin.  Glow matrix has been shown to help improve skin moisture & elasticity, reduce the signs of aging in just 15 days, increase smoothness, moisture and elasticity.  The key ingredients are: Hyaluronic Acid, (one of the best moisturizers for skin), Pine Bark Extract, Astaxanthin, Lutein & Coconut Water Powder.  Also, a scientifically crafted blend of nutrients promoting hydration in the skin while combating free radicals for hydrated and glowing skin and a healthy collagen matrix.  

This product is fantastic!  If you're looking for a youthful glow with smoother skin and diminished or no fine lines and wrinkles, you definitely want to try Glow Matrix!  I had amazing results with this product and will continue to buy it.  Your skin not only looks smoother but has an amazing illuminated glow from within.  My skin appeared smoother, plumper and glowing thanks to Glow Matrix!  I could even go makeup free most of the time and people thought I had some sort of illuminizer on.  It made a huge difference in my skin overall and I got compliments on my skin while taking this product.  I definitely recommend you try it!

Beauty Awards: 
"Best of Natural Beauty" Better Nutrition Magazine
"Best Beauty Supplement" Delicious Living Magazine

NeoCell Beauty Bursts are infused with high quality beauty nutrients in delicious, gourmet soft chews.  They contain Collagen Type 1 & 3 is the body's beauty protein & strengthens skin, hair & nails.  They also contain, the (mega hydrator) Hyaluronic Acid, also known as "Nature's Moisturizer" & hydrates the skin and Vitamin C which is essential to boosting collagen in the skin.  Together, these three powerful natural beauty nutrients work together to build beautiful skin from the inside out.

I tried the beauty bursts in fruit punch and their really good!  I noticed even better results while taking them.  I believe these little chewy gourmet candies are the key to smoother skin and strong hair and nails.  Their kind of addicting, actually.  At times I would forget I already some and would have a few more.  They also have other delicious flavors like chocolate mint and acai berry - yum!  

My overall experience with these products has been nothing short of amazing!  I took the beauty bursts in addition to Glow Matrix supplements and I noticed even better youthful glowing results for both skin and hair!  These high quality natural based products gave me a completely line / wrinkle free face with a youthful glow.  These little chews are easy to take and go if supplements aren't your thing or if you don't want to take another pill.  Just google NeoCell Collagen and you will be amazed at the before and after photos!

NeoCell gives back too which is why I love them even more!  In 2011, NeoCell partnered with Vitamin Angels and has since helped over 1,000,000 at-risk mothers and children get the essentials their bodies need to survive, thrive, and reach their full potential.  In 2012, NeoCell was honored to be recognized nationally for their environmentally-friendly PCR packaging.  

I try to support companies that care enough to give back to the community.  This is definitely a company we should support.  NeoCell is the #1 collagen brand in the world and a leader in the field of nutritional science.  They've also won multiple beauty and health awards.

Why You Need to Cleanse

We detoxify and cleanse our bodies for health, vitality, and rejuvenation.  We cleanse to clear symptoms, treat disease, and prevent future problems. A cleansing program is an ideal way to help you re-evaluate your life, make changes, or clear up addictions.  Detoxification is also helpful for weight loss, although this is not the primary purpose.  

The body stores toxins in fat cells.  When you cleanse your body these toxins are more easily released from their fat stores. Since you then become less toxic, your toxin stores (the fat) are not as necessary and, thus, your body can rid itself of excess, unnecessary fat.  Weight loss also occurs on a cleanse simply because there are fewer calories being consumed. Since weight loss boils down to creating a caloric deficit, eating less overtime is a simple way of losing weight. 

We also detoxify and cleanse to rest and heal our overloaded digestive organs. This is often an overlooked, yet very important, area considering optimal health truly begins with the health of our digestive system. Aside from the internal health benefits, detoxification can also be a great catalyst for external change. For instance, it can provide a great opportunity to reflect and re-evaluate what is most important to you. It can really make a difference in your life when you cleanse your house, your work and your relationships. 

After a cleanse, you will even feel more organized, more creative, more motivated, more productive, more relaxed, and more mentally focused and clear.  So, if you want more energy, greater vitality, more youthful and radiant skin, and greater health for life, then cleansing should be a regular (annual or semi-annual) part of your life.
