Figuring out the perfect running schedule when dieting can be daunting even for dieting champions. Some people engage in either running or dieting for the purpose of weight loss, while others opt for a combination of dieting backed with an exercise regime of running through the week. Running is an ideal exercise that burns calories in lesser time compared to other exercise routines.

Finding a suitable running schedule when dieting requires careful consideration of all factors to ensure that you get maximum results. Take caution not to stretch yourself too thin as this may lead to dire consequences on your health. If you have been dieting for quite some time and feel the need to boost your weight loss efforts, speak to a dietician to figure out the best running schedule that works well for the type of diet you are following. Here are a few running programs you can try as you juggle work, school or taking care of the home.

Running Schedules For People on a Diet

1. Morning hours

When we are sleeping, the body hardly uses any calories obtained from dinner the night before. A morning run forces the body to use the stored fat for energy thus shedding a few pounds. Scheduling your running routine first thing in the morning is the surest way of keeping up your workout regimen. However, running in the morning may be challenging to your system as the body is not as warm as it would be later in the day.

Business executives who wish to supplement their dieting with running may find it difficult to carve out time from their demanding jobs. Try rising one hour earlier and run a couple of miles around the neighborhood before getting ready for work or preparing the kids for school.

You may be surprised to find a handful of neighbors who prefer to run before the sun comes up. Jogging at the crack of dawn is very refreshing as you get to enjoy the crisp, fresh air and before traffic builds up. Also, the noise levels are considerably low in the morning, and this gives you a moment of solitude as plan activities for the day.

2. Evening hours

If you negotiate a long commute to the city every morning, you may find it difficult to run before heading to work. Your priority is likely to be hitting the road before traffic builds up. If this is your reality, you may opt to plan your running activity after business hours.

An evening run has its perks; your body is warmer and hence you can operate at a faster pace after a short warm up session. Working after work accords you extra time for running as you are not rushing to beat deadlines.

According to the New York Times, seasoned athletes set records at races completed in the late afternoon or early evening. Take caution not to extend your routine too late as it may elevate your body temperature and thus have adverse effects on your sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation deduces that sleep deprivation hampers weight loss even with strict dieting.

Observe your diet during lunch to ensure that you have enough energy to carry through the evening jog. If you are low on energy, take a protein shake thirty minutes before running to allow your body ample time to digest and generate fuel.

Research shows that people who prefer to run in the evening stand the risk of missing their workout due to other demands of the day such as late working hours in the office.

Choosing to run after work requires discipline to resist distractions in the form of simple pleasures like happy hour with colleagues. If your workload forces you to work long hours, consider reporting an hour earlier to take a stab at your workload or work through lunch.

The latter option does not imply skipping lunch but rather cutting back on time spent in the break room with your colleagues. You can also bring packed lunch to avoid wasting time queuing at restaurants.

3. Lunch hour

If you are not a morning person and have difficulty maintaining a running schedule at dusk, you may decide to run during lunch hour. Careful, though, running at high noon is not conducive as temperatures can soar to high degrees. If you must run in the middle of the day, find a park with plenty of tree cover and run in the shade.

Conclusion

Regardless of the running schedule, your body will make the necessary adjustments to ensure a smooth workout. Be vigilant to stick to the program and sustain your diet in one stride.

10 Simple Ways for Rapid Fat Loss for the New Year

rapid fat loss

2017 is just around the corner, and who doesn’t want to get rid of that last piece of flab hanging near the belly just in time for the count down? Losing weight might not be easy, but there are things you can do to bring the onset of rapid fat loss just in time for the holidays, and without a lot of effort.

What most people need to understand is the fact that depriving our bodies of all the nutrition that it so obviously needs might not be the right way to reach the ‘ideal size’. And all of what you are trying to accomplish does not come with massive leaps towards weight loss, in fact, it’s actually the opposite. The only thing to remember is that baby steps can get you a lot closer to your ideal weight than anything else.

With that thought, learn about these simple ways to reach your weight goals so that your fancy old jeans can fit you just right, and just in time for the New Year.

10 Simple Ways for Rapid Fat Loss for the New Year

1. A Pen is Mightier than a Sword

You know how we end up munching mindlessly till we realize that we’ve ruined all the work that was put into that tedious, gut-wrenching diet? Yeah, that’s the feeling. Writing down the amount and frequency of your portions can help you get the reality-check you so direly need. Keeping a food journal that tracks all the items you consume in a day can help you stay on track. Things like ‘I ate just 30 minutes ago’ can really help you realize whether you’re actually hungry, or just giving in to the cravings.

2. Skip, Jump, and Trot through the Commercials

Who doesn’t have a favorite TV show these days, and the best way to utilize all that sitting-around time during the commercial breaks is with a few lunges, or maybe even some skips. Anything that can get you to work up a little sweat as you wait for the mother of dragons to show up can amount to huge progress in the end. If you are going to have a 2 hour TV night in, might as well make it a productive one.

3. Limit Your Cravings for Fat

List down all your favorite high-fat and high-calorie foods and start planning a downshift. No kidding. Everyone likes candy, ice cream, potato chips, fries and cookies, but that doesn’t mean you have to survive on all of that. Try some healthy alternatives like sautéed vegetables or fresh fruits.

4. Add Tongkat Ali to Your Fitness Regime

It’s amazing what nature can do for rapid fat loss, but it’s sad that most of us barely ever find out about how we can use natural ingredients to accelerate the weight loss process. Malaysian Ginseng, or Tongkat Ali is a therapeutic herb which is often used to boost male testosterone levels, or as an aphrodisiac. The herb’s ability to act as herbal medicine is limitless, since it helps normalize the hormonal levels of the body, and keeps all your bodily functions in check. The result? A boosted metabolism that is more immune to weight gain, and a few extra pounds off the scale.

5. Add 5 Minutes to Your Daily Walk

You must indulge in some kind of strenuous physical activity for at least 30 minutes each day, but why stop there? Each time you are on your daily walk, resolute to contribute 5 extra minutes. This will help you burn 120 extra calories, and how can that ever be a bad thing?

6. Climb a Few More Flights

Stair climbing can do miracles for your weight loss, and a few extra flights of stairs can help you increase your stamina and decrease your waistline in no time. Climbing is a very effective way to target all the areas where fat generally accumulates, which makes it the easiest way to lose all that extra fat before the holidays.

7. Avoid Eating Out

The best way to cut down on calories and save thousands of dollars a year is to brown-bag it. Make your own lunches for work and try to eat in rather than giving in to the urge. Yes, that steak might look delicious now but once it is consumed and accumulated around your thighs, it isn’t so pretty anymore.

8. Don’t Juice ‘Em, Drink ‘Em!

Try skipping the juice and eat the whole fruit to get all that heart friendly fiber your system is craving for. Chewing food helps generate more saliva, which prepares your gut for digestion, while juices can be less filling, less satisfying, and can make you crave more. Try eating the apple instead of drinking it.

9. Support Goes a Long Way

Not one to exercise alone? No problem. Have a buddy to take along when you exercise. This can help you get the motivation you need to stay on track with your fitness regime, so get your friends involved and work out together.

10. Coffee, sure, but NO MILK & Sugar!

A regular cup of coffee carries a lot of calories, while on the contrary; black coffee can help you accelerate the fat burning process. Ditch the sugar too, and turn the first drink of the day into a healthy one. Coffee with milk and sugar carries as many calories as a small dessert, while black coffee actually helps burn the extra calories your body is holding on to.

With only a few simple tricks, that dream of a perfect body can turn into a reality. So don’t think too much before starting off on the right track to get in shape for the New Year.

Ho’oponopono Meditation Letter to Myself

Today I will write a Ho’oponopono meditation letter to myself. Remember and repeat the four Ho’oponopono affirmations which are:

I AM SORRY

PLEASE FORGIVE ME

I LOVE YOU

THANK YOU

I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you. I allow the Divine Intelligence to solve the sickness in my body. I allow the Divine Intelligence of the Holly Spirit to find and implement a way for perfectly restoring the health of my body. I am sorry my body. Please forgive me my body. I love you my body. Thank you my body. I am sorry my ancestors. Please forgive me my ancestors. Thank you my ancestors. I allow Divine Intelligence to give me the right answer. I am sorry feminine energy from my family, my lineage. Please forgive me feminine energy from my family, my lineage. I love you feminine energy from my family, my lineage. Thank you feminine energy from my family, my lineage. I say to myself: I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you. There is great Love for me here. It is safe to be open.

Divine Intelligence is transforming and releasing my problems, my stress, and worries and transforms them in Pure Love. I am sorry my body for taking upon yourself this burden. Please forgive me body for taking on you this burden. I love you body for taking on you this burden. Thank you body for taking on you this burden in such a wonderful and intelligent way. You are a magnificent body. I super love you.

I let God cancel these programs and memories that have manifested disease… dis-ease in my body. I let the Holy Spirit cancel, delete, uncreate and di-story (take the story out of it) throughout all times, space and realities, dimensions or any other levels or realms, all these programs and memories that have manifested dis-ease in my body. My sorry is completely received. My forgiveness is completely received. My love is completely received. My thankfulness is completely received. The work is done. The programs and memories are completely deleted, uncreated and di-storied. In that place is now empty space. Space is created. I have just created space in that place. And it will be filled with Pure Love and Light. I love being healthy. Thank you for my health. May all be forgiven for all humanity. May we all be healthy.

Listen to these Humpback whale songs as you go through the full restoration of your health. And here are two videos that I listened and liked for the Ho’oponopono meditation.
