Losing Weight

A dream of almost every girl and woman - to have that great body men would turn their heads to. But due to many factors it sometimes seems impossible to achieve - I will name a few. Such as bad diet, eating habits, weak will...

But everything can be changed. The simplest ways are your best friend here - do not believe in drastic diets, or magic pills / gadets. It's a simple math - if you burn more calories than receive, you lose fat. For this to happen, you have to increase your body metabolism, as the burning process happens exclusively there and then! And how do you do it?

Find a relaxing place to be, where you can exercise. Yes, you heard me, you will exercise. Because your body burns calories, when it repairs "broken" muscles - for that to happen, you have to lift weights. Not very heavy ones, but cardio doesn't help as you think.

When your body repairs muscle tissue, it burns calories. When you receive less calories than burn, you burn fat. Easy as that! Of course, don't eat things as margarines, white pastry and fried food - you'd destroy everything you've worked for so far!

Don't believe evething you read on the Internet. Balanced healthy diet and exercising with weights is the way to lose fat!

Thinking about...

Sometimes, there is nothing to think about. We live our lives subconsciously, automatically making decisions and taking action. But there are days, when I realize I have just been thinking about a subject for many days and I didn't know it - like yesterday about the Keystone pipeline.

Or, on the other hand, where I could have spent the New Year's Eve? Somewhere else? Morningside Avenue? Such a nice name...or at ten top places to do this?

Have a little break and rest. Rest to think. As my grandfather used to say: "Thinking is the greatest adventure of all."

Sailing? Such a great thing to do!

People came from water. Well, every living thing in this world has its predecessor coming from the sea. No surprise then when so many people claim to love swimming, sailing or just being near water.

I personally prefer sailing. That feeling of freedom, sea wind tugging at your clothes...it's usually very relaxing. At least if you're not in the storm, of course. That's why I would personally recommend sailing to anyone who loves to relax in not so standard way. Of course, owning a boat isn't so easy, the boat itself taking much of your time in terms of caring about it, but it pays itself handsomely.

If you want to sail on your own boat, you need to pass the captain's exams, but if you aren't so keen on studying or simply don't have time, you can still rent a ship with a captain, or use standard commercial sailing services. That way you don't have to worry about a thing (if your captain is a respectable fellow) and can focus on enjoying the ride, fishing, or just relaxing sailing by yourself or sailing with your family!

Happy sailing and make sure you don't get lost!
