Eating rich, gourmet foods while watching your favorite shows on television seems like fun until you start to see the numbers ticking higher on your bathroom scale! A lot of people really do want to change their sedentary habits and lose weight, but getting motivated is the biggest obstacle to that goal. Here are a few tips for how to lose weight fast in fun and healthy ways.
Start Walking the Trails
Some people dread working out in gyms because it can be monotonous and boring. Going to the same place every day and looking at the same sights can be less than inspiring. If this is your issue, try walking the trails near where you live. Something about being outside in the serenity of nature gives you the energy and motivation to get healthier. There’s a good chance that there’s a nature trail within 5 to 10 miles from your home where you can enjoy nature while walking off the pounds. Remember to bring your favorite music or an audiobook to listen to while you’re taking in the sights.
I’m sort of a sentimental type. I like to hold onto traditional things… like old TV sets that have been around for 10+ years. Well that’s not 100% true. I hold onto them because I haven’t figured out how to properly get rid of them yet! I have missed several electronic recycling days.
I have this one television that is about 10 years old and still functioning perfectly. It’s been out of commission for a while, but I decided to figure out how I could use it with my Google Chromecast device. It’s actually quite simple thanks to a simple tool that’s available at Amazon called an AV to HDMI Converter.
If you want to make a tart, delicious cool summer salad, try this quick recipe for a Cool Cucumber and Red Cabbage Salad. It’s perfect for those hot summer days when you want something quick and healthy to eat:
1 cold cucumber
1/4 cup of chopped red cabbage
2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon of Braggs apple cider vinegar (for its health properties)
A pinch of salt to taste
Slice the cucumbers as thin as possible, preferably with a veggie slicer. Add the cabbage and other ingredients to a bowl that has an airtight lid. Shake it up for a few minutes to ensure the vinegar and salt is distributed evenly. Take off the lid, mix with your fork and enjoy your cool cucumber and red cabbage salad!
Ten seconds after I first sat outside with my new canopy chair I started getting stares. People actually stopped right in front of me, they asked “what is that and where did you get it?” I let them know that it was a canopy beach chair that someone I know had found. The canopy chair is like a regular beach chair except that it has a removable hood that can be pulled up to cover you from the sun.
Now, the canopy beach chair is widely available on Amazon.com. There are several styles available with varied shapes, sizes and features. You will definitely want to add one to the top of your list of outdoor summer products to purchase for fun outings this summer. It’s amazing for keeping the sun out of your eyes and your skin safe from UV rays.
