Exercise Outside

People tend to question their personal fitness during the holidays. It’s the time most people begin to think of their resolutions for the following year. It’s a good time to begin thinking of getting fit, and it’s a good time to head outdoors to enjoy nature, the crisp air and the holiday lights. Some of the country may be experiencing harsh weather, but it’s possible to bundle up and head outdoors anyway.

First things first, get a suitable pair of shoes. Despite the weather being colder, it’s a good idea to get shoes that can breathe. While people may not sweat or otherwise perspire, people still sweat inside of their shoes. This can cause the feet to become substantially cold while outside. Shoes that are able to breathe will alleviate feet wetness and will help to keep them warmer. For shoes like this and other options, click here.

Adequate pants need to be worn outdoors as well. There are many types of sporting pants that can be chosen. Sporting pants are flexible to allow for maximum comfort and range of motion. Pants made out of cotton are best for the colder weather. Spandex and other material that is either thin or allows for air to pass through may be problematic. Cold air causes the skin to be dry and chapped. Choosing thicker pants can help a person to remain warm and keep the skin protected as well. Using knee-high socks is also a good idea to remain warm and dry.

Shirts should be chosen much like pants. They should be made of thicker material to help keep the body warm, but they should also be flexible. Either long-sleeve or short-sleeve shirts can be warm, but it’s a good idea to pair up with either a hoodie or a jacket that will allow for a person to easily move around. For walking, it’s okay to wear a heavy jacket. However, if a person is playing a sport of some type, it’s important to wear something that will allow for movement.

Enjoying the outdoors presents many wonderful benefits for exercise. For starters, people are exposed to the fresh air. The changing of the leaves allow people to exercise while enjoying beauty. This can help to get people’s minds off of exercising and put them into a state of relaxation. Also, the outdoor weather is cooler, which helps to cut down on the amount of sweat experienced. Exercising outdoors is wonderful if dressed for it.

December's Top 10 Workout Songs

dancing christmas trees 

Are you rockin around the Christmas tree? What about the squat rack? Don't try dancing on the treadmill, that can be disastrous (I caution from experience) 

What's striking about this month's top 10 list the quantity of pop songs it contains by folks who aren't archetypal pop stars. In the place of Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, or Beyonce, you'll find contemporary doo wop from Meghan Trainor, a sunny single from Dutch rapper Mr. Probz, and a confessional club cut from Mary Lambert. Even when Top 40 favorites do appear, they seem slightly transformed—as in the case of Taylor Swift's electropop experiment or OneRepublic's dancefloor makeover.

In terms of working out, nothing in the list below tops 140 beats per minute (BPM). However, what the songs lack in speed, they make up in dynamism. If you find yourself hitting a wall mid-routine, check out the huge chorus on Imagine Dragon's latest, the army of horns surrounding Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars, or the blistering remix from Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj.
On the whole, this month's picks mix breakthrough acts who know how to write a hook, pop chart regulars who are trying something new, and a string of hits that have been amped up and re-imagined. Taken together, this combination makes for the best kind of playlist to keep you moving—one that sounds both fresh and familiar at the same time. 
Here's the full list, according to votes placed at Run Hundred--the web's most popular workout music blog. 
Taylor Swift - Blank Space - 96 BPM
Mr. Probz - Waves (Robin Schulz Radio Edit) - 120 BPM
OneRepublic - I Lived (Arty Remix) - 128 BPM
David Guetta & Sam Martin - Dangerous - 92 BPM
Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj - Bang Bang (Kat Krazy Remix) - 128 BPM
Mary Lambert - Secrets (Jump Smokers Remix) - 125 BPM
Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding - Outside - 128 BPM
Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars - Uptown Funk - 116 BPM
Meghan Trainor - Lips Are Movin - 138 BPM

Becoming a Healthier You

Becoming a Healthier You

In many countries, obesity is on the rise, giving way to an influx of diseases and other health complications directly correlated to obesity. In the United States, heart disease is the number one cause of death, which is largely attributed an unhealthy lifestyle.

Many people unfortunately spend their lives eating a diet full of saturated animal fats and heavy, processed foods inundated with chemicals, refined sugar and preservatives. Cumulative years of subsisting on such a diet without exercise, result in the clogging of arteries, as well as fat accumulation on the heart.

While obesity rages in many nations, the food culture is particularly poor in America, a nation that puts far too much emphasis on livestock, as well as fast, convenient food sources that lack substance, while allowing the produce industry to languish.

Losing weight is undoubtedly one of the hardest endeavors to accomplish, and when you're in an atmosphere that glamorizes unhealthy choices, managing your weight becomes even harder. However, putting in the effort towards changing your lifestyle will offer long term benefits that are worth even more than dropping a few pounds.

The most important aspect of any weight-loss regimen is your diet, and while fruits and vegetables are important, you don't necessarily have to become a raw vegan to reap their benefits. Incorporating plant matter into each meal can be fun and adventurous. By experimenting with recipes, you'll discover novel ways to prepare vegetables you never considered before, and your appreciation and knowledge of food will increase.

A good way to get started is by replacing your favorite foods with healthier alternatives. For example, instead of having a cheesey omelette with bacon for breakfast, you could easily stir fry seasoned vegetables with a few eggs to create a breakfast that is satisfyingly full of nutrients. It's best to cut out fatty meats altogether, but lean protein sources are a good option as long as you don't overindulge.

Instead of having french fries cooked in boiling oil, consider baking them instead, and substitute creamy, dairy-based sauces with marinara or a small amount or pesto. When you don't have time to prepare a meal, you can consider buying a meal replacement shake that is fortified with nutrients. As long as you are thoughtful about your diet, and can commit to moderate exercise each day, the weight will slough off while your overall health increases.
