Fitness & Workout Tips by Annie Jaffrey

Keep in mind, we are all designed to move our bodies and our bodies love to be moved… regardless of whether that is getting the stairs rather than the lift, walking, biking, dancing, or obviously traditional exercises at the gym. The aim is to live an energetic way of life, however that fits for you! Furthermore, it’s essential to power your body and have an understanding of how it works. This has made this type of difference for me!

Suggestions summarized:

  • Regularity
  • Fueling your body properly
  • Intention and mindfulness
  • Motivation & looking for inspiration
  • Set goals
  • Concentrate on cardio for fat loss
  • Look good, feel great, perform better
  • Keep in mind to stretch
  • Concentrate on HEALTH


Another Scam?

I came across with a lot of sites about garcinia cambogia and their miracle positive effects on weight loss.

According to WebMD Garcinia is a plant…. The fruit rind is used to make medicine. How does it work? Recent studies suggests that garcinia may prevent fat storage and control appetite; however, this site tells that whether these effects occur in humans is unclear!

There are dozens of studies that point out incredible results, but there are experts saying the opposite… So who should you believe in?

I really don’t know… sorry… I know that that was not the answer you were expecting, but I really don’t know.

Maybe the best way is to try it!

But are there any side effects?

The supplement is made of a fruit extract and as long as you do not take more than the recommended amount no side effects should occur. Neither the studies nor the experts saying it won’t work claim any particular side effect. The only side effect is the money you lose if that doesn’t work.

The main component of pure garcinia cambogia is hydroxycitric acid which send a signal to your brain saying that you should stop eating and this way controlling your appetite which in most case the main cause of obesity.

Any ways I believe that this could complement your effort to lose weight by having a healthier lifestyle. And by this I mean choosing the proper diet and doing some exercise. It’s not that hard. Start walking 10 minutes per day… Then 20 and after that 30 minutes… The instead of walking you start jogging… and believe me… you be much HAPPIER!


I Love Dachshunds

I just love dogs…

In fact, I just love Dachshunds or Wiener dogs as they are known in the US… or Teckel in Germany!

Did you know that the standard size dachshund was bred to scent, chase, and flush out badgers and other burrow-dwelling animals, while the miniature dachshund was developed to hunt smaller prey such as rabbits. Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

Dachshunds are playful, but many are stubborn, making them a challenge to train… I don’t care… I’m stubborn myself!

Visit Dog Food Selector, particularly this section:

And they can run like hell… Along the country there are dozens of annual events with Dachshund Racing!

Summer Goal…

I must confess…

I’m a little bit lazy…


Not a little bit…

I’m VERY lazy!

So, I have a HUGE problem attaining my SUMMER GOAL: Losing 20 pounds…

I did a little research on the web to try finding a way to achieve that.

It has to be safe… not too expensive… and preferably without working out!


I found dozens of miraculous supplements promising a lot… too much hype!

But among those, I found out saffron extract which was featured a year ago on the Dr. Oz show. I don’t really know if this is a guarantee. I like Dr. Oz, but I know that the TV show is a business and sometimes the reviews are a bit biased…

But I’ve got an issue with this type of miracle products… and we all know that Dr. Oz is not the most unbiased doctor…

Another option is to look for surgeons to perform a tummy tuck in Los Angeles, California, where I live… but I’m not a huge fan of surgery!

So my only option: workout like hell and plan out an effective diet!
