How to get rid of "Rump Lumps"

Rump Lump

Have you developed a fatty area between your pectorals (chest) and your biceps/front deltoid (upper arm) area that resembles a fat & chubby butt crack? oops, well then; you may have "Rump Lumps".

Fitness - How to get rid of "Butt Back"

Butt back 1

Summer is just about here and if you are going to be strapless and/or wearing tank tops, it's important that your upper back looks defined, chiseled, and toned. The last thing you need is your upper back looking like there's a hiney attached to it!

Exercisers 1

We're all busy right? We all have to work longer and harder at our jobs to succeed. We all have family issues to deal with on top of that. We all try to stay relevant on social media like Facebook and Twitter and Instragram, and that eats up our precious time.

In today's health and fitness world of online groupon deals, smartphone apps, trendy fitness products, and danger and adventure filled marathons and run-walks, there's so much to choose from to get in shape and stay active. That's a great thing. However, it might be a time to step back and determine ultimately what your ideal fitness and wellness environment should be to keep you motivated long-term and reaching your goals and staying fit for life.

Peru, an extraordinarily diverse country, is home to part of the Andes mountains, a beautiful arid coast, and a large part of the Amazon rainforest. With all of this diversity, it’s no wonder people want to visit here. In addition, Peru is home to Machu Picchu, one South America’s oldest ancient civilizations, and, and iconic location for foreigners to see.

ExerciseandDiet 1Go beyond the cosmetic benefits of exercising and eating right. About two weeks into an exercise and diet program, start to write down and record other benefits you may be realizing such as, “feel more flexible,” or, “more energy and endurance at work,” or even, “sleeping better now.” After adopting a healthier lifestyle, the benefits to you will be numerous, each one building on a previous benefit until pretty soon it’s a snowball effect of good things.

Recently my friend Cherie Higgins asked me about a clothing product she saw for sale infused with green coffee and brown algae to "rev up the body’s fat metabolism while creating a slimmer appearance". ( And apparently the active ingredients withstand up to 20 machine washings.)

support network

Creating a network of support and throwing the message out to the Universe every single day that you are adopting a healthier lifestyle is the key to progressing into the true you. I’m not talking New Year’s Eve, early-January-type resolutions of, “I’m going to get in shape this year,” when a few weeks into February all of your health and fitness goals are forgotten. I’m talking true commitment, a whatever-it-takes type of attitude, “This is do or die.”

Health - Top 4 Ways to Stay Happy

waikiki rainbow

I recently went on a trip to Honolulu, Hawaii and happen to read about it being the #1 happiest city in America. Granted, it's on a pacific island that offers beautiful scenery and mostly sunny and warm weather. But, I started thinking about what creates the "aloha spirit" of Hawaii, which seems to exude happiness from all the locals there. Here are 4 essential ways I believe people in the top happy areas of the United States, and the world for that matter, achieve their happiness.

Health Matters in 2014

wellness

I recently got a chance to live stream into the Clinton Foundation's annual "Health Matters" conference in La Quinta, CA and it was very informative and thought provoking. The conference focuses on healthcare and wellness in the USA. I've put together a brief overview of the day's panel discussions to share with you so that you may see where we are at with wellness in America and what direction things are going in.
