Let’s go ride a bike… Naked?

Hiya Poutlings ❤

Have you ever got the desire, and never managed to shake it, that you need to feel the wind on your butt cheeks as you pedal around on your favourite bicycle? If so, then you need to start saving your money for a trip to… AUSTRALIA, to participate in the annual Melbourne naked bike ride. Actually, you may not have to that far – naked bike rides are apparently held all over the world in locations such as LONDON, HUNGARY and… PARAGUAY.

SA, I urge you all, let’s not make this a THING we copy (like everything else), please?

naked bike riding

It certainly takes a lot of, well, balls, to ride a bike naked. So hats off (helmets on/clothes off?) to the crew of bold Melbourne riders.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF THIS WAS YOUR XMAS PRESENT?

Hiya Poutlings!

Who ever is dating Reddit user ill_take_two is going to be receiving this very unique Christmas present from their boyfriend… A calender with pictures of him being “sexy“. Have a look at the effort into setting up settings and styling he has put into this.

While I am aware that sexy photoshoots for loved ones are becoming ever more popular, generally the opposite way around, the girl has a themed/styled shoot and makes a calender for hubby/fiance/boyfriend, this is the first one I’ve seen on the other end of the scale. I must be honest, I’d have to really try not to laugh. Although, who am I to judge, I do not know this couple, this may have been everything his partner has ever dreamt of…. and in that case, lucky girl, I suppose? hahaha

Which picture is your favourite? Mine is where he has crabs, ooops, I mean, is a CRAB.

FITNESS MAGAZINE

FITNESS MAGAZINE!

Being a fitness fanatic, I am completely in love with FITNESS MAGAZINE !

Never have I come across a magazine so informative and interesting, I have been buying and reading this magazine religiously for over 2 years now, never once have I been disappointed in it.

Being from South Africa, a lot of our fitness magazines were imported from overseas, which I didn’t bother buying due to the fact that if there were recipes or anything in them, I wouldn’t find half the ingredients or clothing and supplements they had for sale or advertised in the magazine.

Having fallen in love with FITNESS MAGAZINE SOUTH AFRICA I would highly recommended this magazine to any fitness fanatic, or those starting off new in the gym or fitness and health lifestyle.

Fitness magazine is very comprehensive, they have articles for beginners and advanced fitness freaks (like me), they have articles for the pregnant fairy’s, articles on health and training, success stories, and fat loss articles.

Ladies take advantage! Best magazine to buy, so educational and articles are always a pleasure to read. Awesome fitness clothes advertised along with nutritional supplements from leading brands.

Fitness magazine is available in your leading stores, like CNA and Dis-Chem or even better get a subscription and have it delivered to you, even better get a Digital Copy.

Fitness Magazine is well priced and well worth it! SO what you waiting for ladies, go grab one and get fit!

Basic Wellness

Hey Fabulous Pouters!

So we all trying to keep fit and healthy in the busy lifestyles people have now a days, yet most people struggle due to the fact that they are so busy.

We all need to keep it simple, and remember the basics about what our bodies need and what they don’t need, we often put our bodies through stress because of the type of foods we eat or by not giving our bodies time to relax.

I am going to give you our Pouters some helpful tips one should use, whether you male or female.

Tip 1: Replenish your energy.

Energy is essential in this sleep-deprived, over stretched, high-speed world.

-Firstly we need to add more alkaline-forming foods into your diet, such as green leafy vegetables, almonds, dates, celery,

-We must now get rid of excess sugar as this can cause fluctuations in blood sugar level which can cause plummeting energy levels.

-Insufficient protein can cause lowered energy levels, so pack some almonds and nuts for a quick convenient snack.

-I know this will be hard for our very own Sandylash, yet we need to cut down on the intake of coffee, as coffee initially raises stress hormones and gives a rush of energy. Try to gradually cut back on the coffee intake.

-Take time for yourself, at least a 20min relaxation period, where you do nothing stressful, like read a book, have some tea in the garden, listen to some music, or a soothing bubble bath.

-And the all time common one is drink plenty of water.

Tip 2: Revamp your diet.

-Start your morning right, have breakfast! Eating breakfast has shown it prevents over-eating during the day. Stick to a healthier option for breakfasts, either high fibre, or a smoothie, some yoghurt and muslei.

-Eat more veggies, try stick to veggies that are most natural as these contain the most nutrients.

-Cut out butter or margarine, these are both tasteless fatty substances we use to create the illusion of something tasting better, all you tasting is the salt that’s been added into these products. Rather cook with olive oil or avocado oil.

-Cut out fizzy drinks, they packed with sugar and are overall not good for you, if you feel you really need a fizzy drink choose Appletizer, their fizzy drinks are a lot healthier than the others.

-Cut down on the in take of carbs, if you are gaming or doing any type of sporting activity make sure you have your daily carbs before your workout. Don’t eat carbs later than 4pm.

Tip 3: Improve your digestion.

-Chew, chew, chew! Take smaller bites, put your fork in between bites, thoroughly chew each bite of food, do not rush when you eat. If it helps use chopsticks to eat, this will cause you to slow down.

-Increase your dietary fibre. Eat dried fruits, beans and legumes, take an apple to work.

-Practise mindful eating. Slowly savour the flavour of the food, and be aware of how much of the food is enough. Create a peaceful atmosphere to eat in, this will prevent you from rushing and you will enjoy your meal more, which will help with cravings later on.

Tip 4: De-stress your schedule.

-Write it down. Have all your events, meetings, plans, birthdays, etc written down and planned out in a diary of some sort, so you can see where you have space open to make further plans, or to prevent missing important events or meetings.

-The five minute rule. If a task comes up and it’s going to take less than five min, do it there and then. It will help from those little jobs building up, without impacting our productivity.

-Think carefully about the things you take on, do not over crowd yourself with things to do, this will lead to you disappointing either yourself or someone else if you can’t handle it.

Tip 5: Move your body.

-My all time favourite is to get into the gym and get moving, there is nothing better than a great workout, 20-30min of medium intensity exercising daily is sufficient to keep the body going, but it has never harmed anyone to push a little harder and do a little more.

-Target your ‘core’ this is the area around your trunk and pelvis, including your abs and lower back. Targeting these muscles, not only gives you nice abs, but gives support to your lower back. A week core over time can lead to bad posture, lower back pain and injury.

-Try new and different exercises, otherwise you’ll get bored and lose interest.

-Make gym your friend and enjoy the time there, don’t turn it into something you dislike

Stick to the basics when it comes to health and wellness, and your body will thank you for it!

JNL!

Fabulous Pouters, I trust we still keeping fit and fabulous?!

Well one of my all time favorite fitness celebrity is Jennifer Nicole Lee a.k.a JNL!

I first read about her in the Fitness magazine the South African version and I was amazed at her story.

Jennifer has become an icon for woman all over the world, her fitness career started when she lost 40kg’s after the birth of her children. Her motivational weight loss success story caught the world’s attention, after she gained columns of accolades as a professional fitness competitor, holding countless titles and crowns. She gained international notoriety, due to her incredible transformation, and was soon a frequent guest on major national talk shows

Before and After!

 The turning point came when she asked her husband to take a photo of her and then stuck it on her wall where she could see it. This one photo was just what she needed to keep her and find her fitness motivation on her weight loss and fitness journey and it helped her to turn her life around. She didn’t just go from fat to thin, she became strong and sexy and turned herself into a “super fitness model” and a great role model for others seeking to lose weight and gain a new figure and have that body makeover.

Jennifer Nicole Lee is the CEO and visionary power house behind JNL Worldwide, Inc. Due to her wildly successful globally broadcasted and marketed fitness and wellness products, books, digital products, e-commerce, and merchandise, she is internationally recognized in over 110 different countries. In short, “JNL” is an extremely successful global mega-brand. Mrs. Lee is a fitness celebrity, a bestselling author, a highly sought-after spokes model, being the name/face/and body of all of her lifestyle brands, wellness products, exercise equipment, DVDs, home, bath, bedding, spa, and electronic downloads, and websites. However and most importantly she is a devoted wife and mother, representing the millions of other mom’s and wives in the world with a brand they can trust.

She is a true inspiration to me and many woman around the world, her success story shows us that if we want something we can do it, we just need to put our mind to it and believe. She never used excuses like she has kids or works, she took her kids into mind and thought about how she could become fitter to better her life with her kids as well as for herself.

Jennifer has an amazing blog you can follow for fabulous fitness ideas: www.jennifernicoleleeblog.com

She also has an amazing website with more advice, direction, fitness, exercise routines and eating plans: www.jennifernicolelee.com

So ladies nothing is impossible, this woman has shown us anything is possible a little bit of discipline and determination can get us there.

Keep fit and stay fabulous pouters!
