Sedentary lifestyle is a factor contributing to obesity and other obesity related diseases.
Any activity which you do, other than working out is termed as NEAT (walking, talking, brushing your teeth etc)
Calories burnt from all these small activities summed up bring a big number of overall calories which you burn throughout the day. So Higher your NEAT more calories you burn, thus helping you go caloric deficit, without decreasing your caloric intake - Stand instead of sitting - Walk or bicycle instead of vehicles etc.
In short find reasons to be more active throughout the day
Small changes will sum up to a huge difference 😊

THE PLANK - To advance ... constantly revisit the ‘basics’.
My Plank has evolved over the years, where long holds used to be the goal it is now about finding internal locks, engagement and space (as well as an endurance element).
The ‘straight line’ scapula strength that can be attained using a plank position correctly, is highly applicable to many movement patterns, that require an interaction with the floor.
‘Protraction’ through the scapula helps to create stability where as a non engaged ‘retraction’ can potentially cause injury and a destabilisation of that region.
Since I started hand balancing I have been using this variant - the ‘Top of Foot Plank’ - as it really fires up the front of the body (anterior chain) working from the toes all the way up to the head.
This position requires a slight posterior tilt of the pelvis, engaged ‘Glutes’, legs together (adduction), front ribs drawn in, ‘Quads’ engaged and a clean protraction through the Scapula ... flat hands, neutral neck position etc etc.
Build up slowly to this as a certain amount of mobility will be required to get onto-the top of the feet - try kneeling onto the shins and feet and using one hand at time lift the knee to stretch the top of the foot and Tibialis anterior.
To attempt the plank - try one foot at a time while the other stays in the normal (toes curled under position).
Build up slowly and get creative with ‘the plank’ to challenge the body from multiple angles.

Daisy is an anxious girl when it comes to meeting new people but she LOVES going out for walks! (I just picked her up for the photo) She’s so quiet, follows me EVERYWHERE and loves a cuddle on the couch.
Sadly, I’m her third owner but I can’t wait to give her the best life! 😍

!! #oats are a really good source of soluble fibre, (soluble beta glucan) absorbed and slows down the breakdown within our digestive track, meaning you feel fuller for longer 🙌 and your blood sugar levels remain more stable 🙌
Oats are nutrient dense providing u with #nutrients such as Vit B1 iron zinc etc 💪💪 #porrige = carbs, fats, protein and micronutrients 🙆♀️ #nutrientdense#healthfood •
#blueberries pack a big punch for there size 🥊 full of iron, phosphorus calcium Vit E and C mean they contribute to healthy bones 🍖 and skin 🤩🤩

you need to find what works best for YOU. try different things. eat different foods. if you're getting tired of doing the same thing over and over again in the gym, try taking a class like kick box, yoga ect. don't just stop or give up when things get easy for u or if you don't see any results. sometimes to change your outcome, you have to change your strategies. find what works best for u!!

i've had a super busy weekend so i didn't get a lot of time in the gym but i'm planning on fitting in some time today to train lower body. i don't know how much time i'll have so when i go im probably gonna do a lot of compound movements. hopefully i can get some time to go today though🤞🤞🤞
it's really crazy how much you can change in a little over a year with lots of hard work and consistency. when i first started i would of never thought i'd feel this much better and good/ confident in myself. i cannottttt waitttt to continue to see myself change and reach my goals. i'm gonna continue to push myself and grind so hard allll summer and it seriously makes me so excited. i love being in the gym and just working out in general it clears my mind and lets me focus on JUST my workout. i'm excited to keep learning about my body and what works best for it.

i reallyy did not feel like going to the gym today but i made myself go and i'm so happy that i did because my workout was so good. my abs were on fiyyaaaa the whole time and i added in some more super sets which made my workout so much harder and definitely more intense. i also did a few drop sets which killed me.

Hey everyone! So finals just finished and I placed 4th in my class. Is this the result that I wanted ? No, but I'm proud with the package we brought because it was definitely one of the tightest I've ever been. We can only bring in a better package each time, and hope that's what the judges are looking for. Anyways, I appreciate everyone's messages and I promise I'll get back to y'all as soon as I'm done eating this good Mexican food. 😂
