No Pain No Gain

It's the holiday season.  Which means you've probably gained some weight and developed some pretty bad eating habits.  But the fight isn't over.  Shedding a few pounds isn't going to be easy.  But it'll be well worth it.  Here's a few tips to shed off a few pounds.  Making you a better you...and a more confident you.


First I tried running a mile every day.  Which of course, didn't work.  It was just too hard to push myself to get on the treadmill every single day.  It was also exhausting, mentally and physically--which is good-- but there's a less painful route... ZUMBA.  And it isn't going to cost you a dime. 

Simply situate yourself in a big enough room and go on YouTube.  In the past, I could never find Zumba tutorials with actual radio music (probably because of copyright issues?... I'm not quite sure) but recently I've stumbled upon a few YouTubers who actually choreographed to some hit music.  I'll link a few below and name a few of my favorite workout.  Trust me, it will have you sweating like a pig.


she has great workouts to some pretty good music... you've got to check her out.

Boom Boom Pow by Black Eyed Peas Zuma Routine

Great for warm up!

Shake It Off by Taylor Swift Zumba with Robin G.

Perfect for beginners! Easy to follow!

Anaconda - Choreo by Lauren Fitz for Club FITz

Such a fun workout!

Great burn for your legs and stomach.

I just love IGGY...who doesn't?

Fireball - Pitbull ft Jonh

Love his vibe.

I recommend creating a 30 minute workout routine with Zumba. Just keep finding more videos and dance your heart  away until the 30 minutes is over.

GM 7-day cleanse

I tried this out a couple of years ago and it actually does work.  It does take some commitment though.  But if you follow through entirely it really does work it's charm.  I can't find the exact original post, since it's been tumbr-ized and re-posted a bazillion times. But I'll link you to one of the best.

Here's the link:

Seventeen Magazine Workouts

If you're not subscribed to a Seventeen Magazine yet, do it.  It's probably one of the best time burners and from time to time it does offer some great tips.  If not purchase a few or rent a few from the library and take a look at the workout section.  They come up with some pretty good workouts to help tone up specific body parts, or some great fat burn workouts.  Give it a try.

Stay healthy.
