In 2008, retired NYPD officer Patti Murillo-Casa was diagnosed with stage IIB cervical cancer. For many women, this would have been a wakeup call to get healthy and start living life to the fullest. Not so for Patti. Instead, she admits she used her cancer diagnosis and recovery as an excuse to continue her lifelong habit of eating any and everything she wanted; she deserved it, she thought. "In my mind it didn't matter what I ate or how much I ate; I felt entitled since I had fought for my own life," she writes on the Huffington Post. But little did Patti know that her "reward" for surviving cancer would become the very thing that would put her life in jeopardy!
Losing weight can be a daunting task. Having this big, vague goal that we keep focusing on, such as "I will lose X pounds," can make it hard to ever cross that elusive finish line. I mean, where to even start, right? The key is to not only to make sure your goals are S.M.A.R.T. in the first place (that would stand for specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely), but also to slowly incorporate habit changes that you can stick with for the long run. Below are seven little things you can do every day to help you lose weight without feeling overwhelmed.
Under Armour caught a lot of flack when they announced on Tuesday their plans to make former Victoria's Secret model Giselle Bundchen their first non-athlete spokesperson. "Giselle is just a model," one hater tweeted at them. "She's nothing special at all," said another. But little did the Twitter trolls know that their haterade would be used to fuel the super model's "I Will What I Want" campaign. Muahahaha! I love it!
Jennifer Lopez is a freak of nature and we mean that in the best way possible. It seems like dancing and performing for decades has done J.Lo a body good. The Puerto Rican pop star, who is just two days away from celebrating her 45th birthday, recently posted a bikini picture looking hotter than ever! No, seriously…
I'm one of those weirdos that LOVES to work out. But I get it, most workouts are boring and even though we all could use a little more fitness in our lives, those 30 minutes at the gym are 30 minutes we could spend on being productive elsewhere. Well for those of you who want to test the theory that laughing burns calories, here are my favorite and funniest workout videos on Youtube.
I started my weight-loss journey on my 18th birthday. In the 12 years since, I've lost 45lbs and gained a helluva lot of perspective. Though I wouldn't change much about my weight-loss experience, there are a few things I wish I knew before that would have allowed me to be kinder and more patient with my body, and help me make better decisions regarding my overall health.
Anyone who follows Alec Baldwin's Latina wife Hilaria Baldwin on Instagram knows she lives, drinks and breathes yoga all day every day. She's posing on sidewalks in NYC streets, at the beach, on rooftops and even on rail road tracks (even thoughthat's not really the smartest thing in the world to do). Recently she posted a picture of herself posing on a yacht. But this yoga picture differs from the rest in that she's seen wearing a teeny tiny black bikini and let me tell you, her butt looks amazing!
Sarah Evans' life changed after celebrating her 30th birthday in Las Vegas with friends and having a miserable time. The five-foot-four woman was weighing around 248 pounds during this time and could not enjoy herself because of her constant thigh chafing. After seeing her friends having a great time and wearing bikinis, the Louisiana woman knew it was time for a change.
Since then, the 31-year-old has dropped 120 pounds and you HAVE to see her amazing transformation!Continue Reading >
I've often read that fit people have more sex and that exercise makes you friskier. The issue is that not everyone is fitness minded and it takes a lot of motivation for some people to hit the gym. But one Australian woman found a way to combine BOTH of those things into one exercise regimen. Mistress Anna, a personal trainer by day and a dominatrix by night, decided to combine her two loves to create a fitness fetish bootcamp class.
No, I'm not kidding and wait till you hear what the workout regimen is like!
I have to admit, I'm not exactly thrilled that Selena Gomez has reunited with Justin Bieber, but she is looking better than ever right now. She recently posted a bikini selfie of herself to Instagram along with the caption, "soy valiente." But who needs to be brave if you look that good in a teeny tiny orange bikini top and long French braids?
