Annual 10km Vancouver Sun Run - 2017
Quick Mini Survey.
I've been in discussion with my ex boss about having the notification ON when sending a text message to a cellphone saying that your message has been read by the recipient.
He feels that this function is offensive? I frankly don't concern myself about this function nor do I care if people who send me text messages know if I've read their messages or not because I tend to reply to my messages quite promptly out of respect, but thats just me.
So this is just to find out is there anyone else who agrees with him and are offended by this feature or is this an overreaction on his part and am I missing something?
Please share your views. :-)
"I've tried every diet under the sun in my life, and I'm really afraid I've ruined my metabolism. I seem to gain weight no matter what I eat now! Is there any way to fix this"?
This is such a good question — I'm so glad you asked! Many people suffer from the backlash that can result from years of yo-yo diets. What happens is this: When people let their calorie levels drop too low, their body's survival mechanism kicks in, lowering their metabolic set point (or basal metabolic rate). When they go off that crash diet and begin to eat normally again, they gain back any weight lost — plus. And what follows that? Yup, another crash diet.
The cycle is often very frustrating, but it CAN be reversed with time, consistency, and patience. What you'll need to do is the exact opposite of what we call shocking the metabolism; you have to allow your body time to adapt to a new metabolic set point — by being consistent, you'll force your body to adapt.
Okay, here's the game plan: First, set your daily caloric intake at 12 calories per pound of body weight. (For example, if your weight is 117; 117 x 12 = 1, 404 calories a day.) Then stick like glue to that calorie allowance for at least one to two months, depending on your metabolism. This will allow your body time to readjust your metabolic set point accordingly.
Now, here's the other part of the equation: The absolute best way to pump up your metabolism is to EXERCISE. You'll be burning calories not only during your workout but also up to 48 hours after — all the while increasing lean muscle tissue, which speeds the metabolism over the long term. Aim for five hours of exercise a week if possible, but no fewer than three hours a week.
And for those who are really serious, first do a Nutritional Cleanse (
and then a maintenance schedule for after that period because it's all about the lifestyle change NOT a quick fix!!
Issues With Love Handles?
Q: What kind of exercises can I do to target my "love handles" and get rid of them once and for all?
A: This answer is the same one I have for any spot-reducing question you guys could ask. Both belly bulge and love handles are about excess body fat, not lack of muscle. Crunches and ab exercises are therefore not the solution. The best way to reduce these problem areas is to reduce your overall body-fat percentage, and we all know that that requires diet and exercise.
That said, I'm actually experimenting with different stretches and light isolation exercises for specific areas of the body.
These stretches will bring blood, and thus oxygen, to these problem areas — my theory is that the oxidization will help break down the fat. And hey, stretching is always beneficial!
For love handles, try this side-bend stretch in conjunction with diet, exercise, sodium reduction, and 80 ounces of water a day:
(Do this stretch at least three times throughout the day.)
To stretch the triceps, upper back, abdominals, and obliques.
Here's how you do it:
Bend to one side while holding your opposite arm overhead, then quickly stretch to the other side, raising the other arm. This drill should be done in a controlled, continuous fashion for 10 stretches on each side of your body.

Announce your plans. Tell your family and friends about your weight-loss goals. Sharing your goals and plan will enable you to recruit support and be held accountable.
Keep Challenging Your Body
Learn how to push yourself so you'll continue to see the weight-loss results you want!
It may have been just a few weeks ago that you were an exercise newbie. Those first workouts were rough — you didn't think you'd ever survive! But now look at you — you're working out on a regular basis and improving your diet by eating whole foods and avoiding processed junk. Good for you!
Know what? It's time to bring the hammer down again. How do I know? Because your body is getting just a little too accustomed to the workload that originally taxed it to the max. Remember — to see continual results, you continue to challenge your body.
Once you've been exercising for several weeks, it's safe to increase your intensity, and I recommend working out at about 85 percent of your maximum heart rate. To monitor your intensity, first calculate your maximum heart rate by subtracting your age from 220 if you're a woman, or 226 if you're a man.
Once you've calculated your 85 percent rate, you can keep yourself at the right intensity by taking your own pulse throughout your workout. The quickest way is to count the beats for 6 seconds and then multiply by 10. You should check your pulse every 10 minutes or so. Sometimes during weight training your heart rate will jump above that 85 percent mark, which is fine. If you're using weights, just make sure that your heart rate doesn't drop below 75 percent of your max for the duration of the workout.
If you've been speed walking for a few weeks, now might be the time to transition into jogging every 2 minutes. If you've been using the elliptical at the gym, try the bike, running on the treadmill, or even an exercise class. By switching up your workouts while still working out at your maximum heart rate, you're challenging your body in different ways and will continue to see the results you want. Don't get stuck in a rut! Go out of your comfort zone and try new things — the payoff is worth the extra effort!
