I'm 5'7 ish, 17 years old "I weigh 117 lbs is that good? My parents keep telling me I need to lose weight .
Yes, that is good. When I was 15-16 and 5’7” (only 3 cm under 5’8” now), I weighed around that (bounced between 115-118), and my body was still thin. Don’t listen to your parents. That is so rude of them to say. If you are not comfortable with your body, all you need is to eat healthier and do some exercise. That will help tone your body out nicely. There is nothing to worry about though. You are in a good, healthy weight range. Next time they tell you something like that, speak up and tell them that it’s rude and your body is perfect the way it is. read more..

I wanted to ask if there were an certain yoga poses that don't involve bending the knee's all the way, but still make your knee a bit flexible. The thing is when I was born my knees were dislocated, so now I can't bend my knee fully. I was wondering if there was anything I could do to try to make my knee's more flexible and stronger?
That’s a tough one. There are a few poses on the link below with some poses that don’t have a bend in the knees. If you’re looking to gain a little flexibility, you can do things like downward facing down or do some toe toughing, standing or sitting. You could put together a little routine of poses that don’t have bends in the knees that you can’t do. Just make sure it’s safe for you to do and really listen to your body. If it’s saying no, don’t go any further.Yoga for Knees - Keep your knees strong and flexible read more..
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - All that virtual boxing, bowling and dancing along with video game systems might not be helping kids meet their daily exercise requirements, a new study suggests. In the report, kids who were given so-called active video games to play on a Nintendo Wii didn't end up logging any more moderate or vigorous physical activity than those given games they could play sitting on the couch. Researchers said that it's still possible playing active Wii games instead of other video games or simply watching TV could mean youngsters burn a few extra calories. ... read more..
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Despite the brave new workout world of streaming videos and smart phone Exercise apps, the old-fangled Fitness DVD has never been in better shape. As people seek to live healthier, it remains the go-to workout aid for many who like their exercise accessible, inexpensive and private, according to a recent report. "Consumers are getting more and more advice from doctors to exercise," said Agata Kaczanowska, industry analyst for IBIS, which conducted a market research study of the $264 million-dollar fitness DVD industry. ... read more..
“p.s. I also have IBS too :(“^Putting your second message in with this one! Hello! Thank you very much for both the blog compliment and Tara comment. I never get tired of hearing I look like her, haha. (:Yes, of course that sounds great! Since you’re more experienced and have taken classes before, you definitely should have no problem doing it on your own. Maybe some Yoga dvd’s would work too so you don’t always have to go off of youtube and can do longer videos.Awe. It’s sort of nice knowing people, followers especially, can relate, but terrible because it sucks to live with. At least we are living healthy lives and don’t have to deal with how bad the problems get when we don’t eat well. It sort of helps keep us on track with our health! read more..

Hello! If it was a sore, over stretched kind of pain then you probably went further than your body was fully capable of. That’s happened to me before. If you have or have had back problems in the past, that could be the cause and you should take it more lightly and slow. You might be doing a few poses wrong, but I’ve never experienced back pain from doing a pose incorrectly. I looked it up and saw a few links that talked about back pain from forward bend, then I read Back pain after Yoga on Livestrong and it says the same thing there. So, that might be your problem. I suggest talking with the instructor about the pain and maybe asking them to watch you do the forward bend or any other poses that might cause that. Especially if they don’t walk around during the class helping people do the pose correctly. (: read more..

Health Tip: Set Exercise Goals
I understand that. The good thing about taking a class is the teacher will correct you if you are taking more of a beginners class or a class where there aren’t more intermediate and advanced yogi’s. If you’d like to start practicing at home first, you may. Though, I think you might benefit more from starting to take classes now as well as doing it at home.There will be no humiliation unless you do not let go of your ego when you go. You shouldn’t feel like you have to do as well as the person next to you, who might be able to do a certain pose easily while you struggle. Pay attention to your body only, especially how it feels. You don’t want to push yourself too far because you can either hurt yourself or fall. If you push too hard through a pose, you might never learn it because you are not being patient with yourself. That’s part of what yoga is about… patience. You also might be surprised what your body is already capable when you really put yourself to it. Also, the more mindful and patient you are, the less clumsy you’ll be. read more..
NEW YORK (Reuters) - The short days, the weak sun, and the warm beds of winter can wreak havoc on your fitness routine. As the outside temperature plummets, so too can the will to brave the elements for outdoor exercise. Experts say as long as you layer up, drink up and tune into how cold is just too cold it shouldn't impact your fitness. "Come with a different game plan for the winter," advises Jessica Matthews, an exercise physiologist with the American Council on Exercise (ACE). "Motivation tends to wane a bit, so explore different activities, including things you can do in your own home. ... read more..

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Along with mother's cooking and the family dog, regular exercise is too often among the childish things young adults leave behind when they make the move from home to college. Attention should be paid to this drop off, experts say, because those inactive in youth tend to remain inactive over their lifetime.

To see if the manager was there and had read my application that I turned in the other week and noticed 99% of the people in there were all doing cardio. Treadmills, bikes, whatever else was in there. Then I looked over at the weights areas and didn’t see anyone. I don’t have a Gym Membership and have never even been to a real gym, but I pictured how weird it’d look, me being the little tiny girl pumping iron while everyone else is running. It made me giggle a little on the inside. How cute that’d be. I missed class today to… go do a job thing which was a one time thing so I made up my lost work out at home for maybe about 40 minutes. I usually feel less motivated to do a lot when I’m at home, but I did the first half in my ugly backyard in the 65 degree warm winter weather, then went inside to finish when my neighbors dogs came out to bark at me. I started with jump rope, did a few workouts like push ups and bicycle crunches, lunges, then back to jump rope, and did that a few times between my other workouts. Did some more work with weights and tried to get in a lot more core workouts since I’ve been neglecting my abs and paying more attention to the little bumps forming on my arms. I tried doing a little bit of yoga but I didn’t feel like it so I did one Sun Salutation, a mix of a and b, with the warrior and without the seated position in b. Then stretched my legs, did camel, and drank the last half of my odwalla mango protein drink. Then I had an accident with my 2 day old expired (which I knew) vanilla chai drink and now I hope I don’t get sick from it (because I freak out over this stuff.) Just thought I’d share. I don’t know why. Now going to clean up and stuff my face with food and shower in no particular order (but I’ll probably clean first). read more..

After you work out, lean meat is okay but don’t eat something like steak. Try fish or chicken. Not sure if you’re asking for morning Yoga videos or not, but if so, here’s a few. Morning Yoga for Flexibility, Morning Wake up Yoga, and Morning Yoga in Bed. It’s okay if you use the same video every morning. If you memorize the routine, you will be able to do it on your own, as slow and as long as you’d like without having to use the video. If you feel like you need more of a stretch or want to try new videos, go right ahead. But it is all up to you (: read more..

While in the book store in late November, I was skimming through a book called Ayurveda: The Science of Self-Healing and came across a page with a list of suggestions for a healthy, creative life.

I like the whole getting up early and starting the early morning peacefully, slow, and clean and that’s all I would really want to go by. I sort of have my idea morning routine pictured in my mind, from thinking about it sometimes. One day I’ll finally reach that point. I’m thinking that won’t be until I have my own home.

A misconception is that exercise before bedtime, even hours before is detrimental to your Sleep. While this may be true for some populations, for the most part, exercise before bed even 30 minutes before you go to sleep is not bad for you.Relaxing or moderate exercise may not affect your sleep at all. But if you do exercise strenuously such as for an hour or more at one time and do so two to three hours before bedtime, you may find you sleep better and more deeply. read more..

Obviously not just random things like… hey here’s a picture I found on tumblr, buy it from me. But like… I could make a yoga calendar with personal yoga photos and stuff like that… hiking trails and running photos… stuff like that. Just a good way to put all the things I’m good at together and hopefully make a profit of. Then maybe I’ll be able to afford yoga school sooner! You’d all go for that, right? (; read more..

I’ve discussed IBS with a follower of mine and how to deal with it, so if you’re interested you can come off of anon and we can talk about that. However, no. There is no way to rid of it because there is no known cure or exact known cause for it, but doctors lean more towards stress being the cause, which also triggers bouts of problems (for me, anyway). A healthy lifestyle has helped it tremendously though. I still get problems but they’re not as severe as they were back when I ate nothing but crap (a year ago, less). Trigger foods will vary from person to person.My first recommendation is starting a food journal, like I described in my page. This will help you to figure out what foods are hurting you, which ones help you, etc. If you see a doctor, they will talk about the problems (this is where the food journal is also very useful), do a blood test, and they will first see if you test positive for celiac disease and maybe a few others things. Though, since there is no known cause or cure, there’s no way to know for sure, like through a test. That will just cross things out as to what it’s not. I’m sure I’ve said too much since this was not the question. Just trying to be helpful haha (: read more..

Overcoming a craving, being able to do more push ups, getting better at yoga poses, running faster… that’s the fun, that’s the motivation.

The hard work that it took to accomplish something… that is the best part of the lifelong journey. read more..

30 minutes total of stretching/Yoga and strength workouts… Yes, I think that’s fine! Then you can work in more over time when you feel that you want to. I suggest doing the stretching afterwards. And give yourself at least 1 rest day a week if you’re working out every day. (: read more..

And make sure you’re back isn’t slouching down, and don’t look down at yourself during the exercise. If it feels a little too easy, try adjusting yourself, you might be too high up or too low down. It’d be easiest if you have a mirror that you can watch yourself in or maybe record yourself in the pose and correct it from there (: read more..
