Gotta love Horoscopes

What I love about daily Horoscopes is the way they all speak with an open-hearted positivity, whatever your Zodiac sign may be.  And I mean all.  Just read your Horoscope today, and check out your Mom’s or your best friend’s. And why shouldn’t they all be positive and open-hearted?  Because no matter what your situation is today, you can make it better by just thinking, speaking and feeling more positive.  And by respecting yourself with a daily fitness program.  Because just like Horoscopes, energizing your mind and body while putting a fat burning spark in your day is always a good thing.  So enjoy sculpting your butt & thighs with today’s 5 Minute Fat Burning Workout #73.  – R

Staying fit for the Cougars

This is for all you guys out there who’ve fallen out of shape, especially you Baby Boomers from the ages of 46 to 65 who could use a little help staying fit for the Cougars. Everybody knows what a Cougar is, right? For example, yesterday I spoke with my yoga teacher friend who’s 46 and divorced with a 10 year-old son.  She’s attractive, sexy, independent, active, in-shape, confident and fun to be with.  And she’s not just looking to hang out at some hotel bar drinking the afternoon away.  That Cougar.  Because my friend deserves someone her age or older who’s in-shape and can keep up with her. Which, unfortunately for most of you Boomers, is guys much younger than you.  So if you haven’t started one, get with a daily fitness program and stay fit for the Cougars!  Enjoy sculpting your abs, biceps and thighs again with today’s 5 Minute Fat Burning Workout #72.  – R

Think “Unity & Pride” today

When you celebrate Cinco de Mayo today, think Unity & Pride and the importance of believing that anything is possible.  Just reflect upon the 4,000 Mexican soldiers in 1862 who were greatly outnumbered by the well-equipped French army of 8,000 that had not been defeated for almost 50 years. However improbable, they were victorious as a result of Unity & Pride. Because sometimes it’s takes a collective energy interlaced with self-respect and dignity to overcome obstacles that seem insurmountable, even when the odds are stacked against you.  Like a daily fitness program.  You may not have the time or money or ability to join a gym or yoga studio, but you can certainly make time for at least 5 minutes of exercise each day.  So gather your family and friends today, and band together for some good old fitness.  And stand tall and proud like Mexico did.  Enjoy strengthening your back and abs with today’s 5 Minute Fat Burning Workout #71.  – R

Never ask a woman her age!

I’ve been admiring this gal in the gym for the past month when I finally spoke with her today. She’s there everyday and she knows what’s she’s doing. Plus, I figured she was much older than she looked.  So when she said today was her birthday, I asked, “How old are you?” She replied, “Never ask a woman her age!”  Of course not, right. The thing is, she doesn’t look a day over 50. She’s 64 today and looks amazing. Thus, the lesson here folks, aside from never asking a woman her age, is to turn back time by embracing a daily fitness program. So enjoy today’s 5 Minute Fat Burning Workout #70 – Back Bends. – R

Get your Mojo back

Last night I watched the Dodgers game with a friend who said he needed to “get his Mojo back”.  When I asked him in reference to what, he replied, “everything”.  Although everything pretty much covers it all, what he was specifically referring to was his lack of motivation to pursue 1) a new job, 2) a new girlfriend, and 3) a daily fitness program. Thus, my friend is temporarily stuck.  And I say temporarily because losing one’s motivation and getting stuck in life is only a phase – if you want it to be.  So for anyone out there who can’t find their Mojo like my friend, no worries!  Take it upon yourself to kick-start your life with a daily fitness program.  Because when compared to finding a new job or a new love, exercising for at least 5 minutes a day is a breeze.  So enjoy opening your heart today with my 69th consecutive 5 Minute Fat Burning Workout.  – R

Action defines you

Thomas Jefferson once said, “Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.”  No question that action defines you.  Because who you are is not just determined by what you eat – it’s about what you do.  So do something today that defines you as someone who cares about their physical and mental well-being.  Like my Fat Burning Workouts.  Or anything else physical for that matter, as long as you’re doing something everyday to invigorate your muscles and your body.  So enjoy opening your hips again with today’s 5 Minute Fat Burning Workout #68 – Hip Opener II.  – R

The door is open

You may have heard the old Chinese proverb, “Teachers open the door.  You enter by yourself.”  When it comes to working out, this is 100% true.  Because the hard part of physical fitness is that no one can do it for you.  Knowing what to do is the easy part.  It is, when you’re practicing along with my 5 minute fat burning workouts.  Short, effective and uniquely challenging, these workouts are meant to teach you the right exercises using the proper technique. They’ll also motivate you to do more, and serve as a confidence builder if you’re new to fitness.  The door is open, but you must enter by yourself.  So enter freely with some detoxifying lunge twists in today’s daily workout #35.  Enjoy – R

Healthy Diet + Daily Exercise = Success

We all know the meaning of a healthy diet, right?   And we all know what it means to exercise daily – or at least if you’ve been following along the past 33 days you know you can exercise for as little as 5 minutes a day.  So why is it so hard to combine the two to achieve a successful result?  Well, although the definition of success may be different for each of us, the certainty in the above referenced equation is the plus and the equals part.  If you eat healthy and workout everyday you will certainly achieve success as it relates to preserving your body for the long term.  And hopefully you’re not fooling yourself when it comes to a healthy diet and daily exercise – because there is no substitute.  So watch your diet, do something physical fitness everyday, and keep with your positive thoughts and feelings!  Enjoy shaping your legs and biceps with today’s 5 minute fat burning workout #33.  And I’ll see you next time – R
