Tola Talks Put Those Worthless Hours to Good Use

Cool story about a twenty-something dude I met last night and a bozo in the gym this morning, plus Taylor Swift and her bikini-clad friends and the “awesome parents” from the UK getting tattoos for their little girl. Weekdays on youtube.com/tolatalks. Thanks for tuning in – R

Turn down the music

American writer and Nobel Laureate John Steinbeck once said, “Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.”  Well, much like handling rabbits, I’ve been churning out 5 minute fat burning workouts everyday for the past six weeks.  Today is no different with three simple exercises that’ll make your abdominal muscles scream.  At the very least, you can tell your friends you’re doing a little something to prepare your midsection for those 90 degree bikini days – which, for those of us living in LA, began yesterday.  So turn down the music and enjoy listening to your soon to be ‘beach-ready’ abs scream in workout #38.  Have fun!  -R

Another day, another fat burning workout

In keeping with our theme to burn fat while sculpting your thighs, workout #3 of my 5 minute fat burning series employs the age old exercise most commonly referred to as the lunge.  For anyone looking to start a new fitness program, keep it simple and make sure you do something everyday – even for only 5 minutes.  It will help establish a strong foundation that will propel you to greater fitness heights.  Enjoy your workout – R

Get “Zen in ’10”

Tuesday's Fat Burning Workout

I recently read the average American gains 10-15 pounds during the holiday months.  As crazy as that sounds, people who gain weight around the holidays seem to rationalize it with a New Year’s resolution to lose the weight well before those bikini months.  But why not get “Zen in 10” and start now, two weeks ahead of time, by consciously choosing to eat and drink healthier and beginning a new daily fitness program today – one you can do from the comforts of your own home?  Especially anyone living in the Midwest and on the East Coast – I certainly feel for you! So stop futurizing, as I often say, and keep your thoughts and intentions in the present.  It’s much simpler that way, plus you won’t feel the pressure to perform in the future because of what you did to yourself today.  And when I say get Zen it’s about finding your own personal enlightenment through your thoughts and actions – today.  Not tomorrow because who knows what that will bring.  I should know.  I spent my 20s and 30s futurizing about a life that’s completely different than the one I enjoy today.  So forget about getting back to your workouts and losing that weight in January.  Respect yourself.  And I’ll see you today (and tomorrow) – R
