Thanks for stopping by everyone!!! Hallowed glutes is an evil machine that helps me pick up my a$$!! At 42 it wants to fall for some reason!! My main goal is to just be healthy plain and simple. I would like to stay in the 14-16% bodyfat range. Maintain my curves while getting lean muscle. And rocking a bikini doesn't hurt! lol!!
Good morning everyone!! Today was yoga day and it was much needed! I will be glad when it turns warmer and I can start taking it to the beach...nothing like hearing the sound of the waves...soothes the soul!!
Anyone who reads my blogs, will figure out soon that I am an information junkie! I like to research why...why do we lift this way, why do we eat this way, etc.
Well, the past few weeks I've been researching coconut oil and safflower oil. I haven't been getting enough healthy fats in my diet. I cook with olive oil, eat almond and salmon, etc but there are other healthy oils out there we need and that are beneficial to our muscle growth etc.
Coconut oil is one that has many benefits!! Good for skin, hair, nails, dental hygeine..yes if you have inflamed gums swish 1 tsp around in your mouth and spit...it's an antiinflamatory...but what they also found out is that taking 3 Tblsps a day will reduce belly fat. And I don't know about anyone else, but being in my 40's and menopausal, that is something I have to battle alot!! So I'm going to try this for 3 months and see what happens. Worst case scenario it does nothing for the stomach but my hair, skin and teeth look amazing!
Safflower oil is also a healthy fat that is suppose to help with belly fat. The way I'm going to incorporate it into the diet is just to add 3 tsp of sunflower seeds to my salad everyday. That's all it takes from the research.
So in 3 months I'll let ya'll know how it worked if it did! lol!!
Have a great day everyone!
