blog spotsbody envy

female figuresAs I stood in line at CVS tonight, I browsed the headlines on some popular entertainment/lifestyle magazines covers. I know I shouldn’t have been, but I was shocked at the amount of headlines claiming that they had workout and diet tips for readers to get “Abs like Rihanna,” “Legs like JLo,” “Kim’s new, slimmer, still curvy body,” etc. It shocked me for a couple of reasons: 1) As women we are constantly battling with self esteem issues, thinking we’re too fat, too skinny, our hair isn’t good enough, we have a wrinkle, yada yada, yet, we are the ones who keep these magazines in print, and 2) these are the same magazines that routinely publish the ‘fat edition’ where they zoom in on these same celebrities’ body parts to show their cellulite, wrinkles, and blemishes.

Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate being able to read the celebrity training regimens and nutrition plans, but I am also realistic when reading these articles (waiting in line, because I don’t buy them) and I want you to be as well. Keep the following things in mind when perusing these stories:

GymYour first time at a gym can be a scary experience. Especially if you have never set foot in one before. Since it’s that time of year when gym memberships are flying off the shelves, I thought I would take the fear out of your first trip by giving you a few helpful tips to make it run a little more smoothly.

Tip #1: What to bring.

Everybody’s different, but I bring the following items to the gym:

  • Lock-Most gyms don’t allow you to carry a bag around with you so you’ll want to bring a lock for the lockers if your gym provides them. If your gym doesn’t provide lockers, just bring in the following items.
  • Towel-No one wants to sit in your sweat and I’m sure you don’t want to sit in someone else’s sweat so bring a towel with you to dab your forehead or lay down on any machines you may use.
  • WATER BOTTLE-An essential item for any physical activity. If you need a reason, read my thesis (don’t worry, there’s a summary) http://digitalarchive.gsu.edu/nutrition_theses/8/

  • ipod/WALKMAN (if they still make them)/etc-I, personally, don’t like using one, but I know many people like listening to their own music during a workout. Make sure your music listening device is one that doesn’t hinder your workout. Many people use arm bands or waist bands to put their devices in, and I know a lot of workout clothing has built in electronic pockets now.
