Pets & Fitness (Infographic)

So I am not sure how many of you have pets, particularly dogs, but I love them!I came across this infographic from PuppySpot on how dogs can be great to add to your workouts.  I don’t have any pets as of yet, but my family does (a rat terrier) and while it would be awesome if the little thing would allow me to hold him long enough to do strength workouts, he makes for a great running partner and walking partner for sure. Not to mention it is said that dogs can really increase your dopamine levels, so if you are having a sad or upsetting day, a dog can come handy (unless you are allergic of course). Anyways, I hope all of you enjoy this infographic as much as I have and use it to your disposal.

Going to be gone this weekend :D

Alright lovely blogger friends, 

I am going to be gone all weekend, so I might be back Sunday night or Monday Morning, just saying that I won’t be blogging this weekend (which is technically normal) and I apologize I have been away for three days. I have tons of packing to do tonight because I am leaving tomorrow morning after work. I am going to post my workouts I did this week and will try to make time for another post ..but don’t hold me to it, as I have tons to finish around the house before I leave. Hopefully this coming week, I will have more fun fitness/health topics and workouts as well for all of you. With this all being said, I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend and i will see you soon! ❤

How to “Active” rest on a rest day

Don’t be the pink panther in this above picture.. 

 

Obviously he had too much fun the night before and now is rethinking about his actions all the while holding this last night’s beverage. We don’t want to be that guy, or maybe we do, either way, this isn’t a form of “active” rest. 

 

Many times on a rest day, people assume it means go watch your favorite netflix show while eating bon bons and sipping on your favorite beverage of choice BUT in all reality, your rest days should be more productive but not as extreme or intense as your workout days. I mean it is okay to eat bons bons and watch netflix – because having an actual day of rest is very important in training to keep from over-training and reduce chances of injury and exhaustion. I just mean the majority of your rest days should consist of productivity and things that don’t keep you indoors sitting on your butt all day, unless you are watching my YouTube videos (then by all means don’t move until you have watched them all) – I didn’t even learn this whole active rest idea until I was told about it during college and guess what? it made total sense to me. Hopefully it makes sense to you as well. So many of you want ideas on what to do on rest days that don’t consist of staring at the blank walls in your room? good, I am here to help you with this. 

 

I am going to name a few activities one can do for their rest days to keep them moving and grooving and heart pumping! 

 
 
  • go for a walk, I don’t mean to the fridge and back to your bedroom, I mean an actual walk someplace (trails, to the corner store, friends house, etc)
  • go swimming
  • participate in some sports 
  • ride a bike
  • go bowling
  • throw frisbee
  • take a hike 
  • go dancing
  • scuba diving
  • mountain climbing
  • rollerblading
  • ice skating
  • rowing
  • boxing
  • jump on a trampoline
  • skateboarding/longboarding
  • surfing
  • play some hopscotch
  • take the family to the nearby park

There are many, many activities one can do on their rest days. The point of an active rest day is to keep you moving so that you don’t get used to sitting all day and doing nothing. – which doesn’t benefit you. Usually when one continues their workout routine after an active rest day, they have more energy than the one who sat all day in the house the night before. Keep yourself busy throughout the day 😀

 

What do you like to do on your rest days? (be honest) leave answers in the comment section.
