Dropping a few pounds easier than you think…or is it?

weight-loss-success-storiesDon’t let the headline fool! We’re just playing – the answer is YES, dropping a few pounds is actually easier than you think, as long as you stay committed to your goals, then you can most definitely achieve the weight loss goals that you desire. All of us (well most of us, anyways!) have made the mistake of letting a few extra pounds pack on at some point in our lives, so if you have let this happen – trust us, you’re not alone! Now comes the hard part…instead of sitting around and sulking about that giant spare tire you have hanging over your waist line, it’s time to take action and do something about it. If you’re like me you will want to find a diet or exercise program that helps manage your weight loss. There are several routes that you can go when deciding the healthiest way for you to lose weight , but you will want to come up with a program or game plan that will work with your lifestyle and personality.

For me, I actually just came up with a routine on my own, and it pretty much goes like this: For breakfast I eat one of those Chobani yogurt things where you can dump a topping into the yogurt. My favorite is the banana version that has almonds and chocolate. I then have a banana for snack. Lately for lunch I have been eating a can of tuna, and then carrots with some ranch. Later in the afternoon I have an apple for a snack, and then I find something reasonable to eat for dinner – a sample might be bake salmon with asparagus and rice. This is just a diet plan that has worked well for me over the last few weeks, and I have actually seen some pretty decent weight loss results. Keep in mind that I am also exercising a bit as well, so that may have helped speed up my results.

In any case, the point is, that if you really want to lose some weight, it actually is pretty easy. You can come up with a plan totally on your own like I did, or just do a quick Google search to find something that works for you. A ton of people use systems like Nutrisystem or Weight Watchers, and those can be great options as well, if you have the money to pay someone to guide you/provide meals for you on your weight loss journey.

Either way, just come up with a plan and execute! Now for some additional motivation…

3 Reasons Every Dude Should Try a Sex Toy – at Least Once…

sex-toys-that-men-can-tryEarlier this week Yahoo! published a controversial article detailing the three reasons why every woman should try a vibrator, so we decided that we’d return the favor, but list things that guys should try! Before we dish out our advice, here are a few things that Yahoo! shared about vibrators and why women should try them. For starters, they say that more than half of American women have used a vibrator at some point, so they are basically apart of the lexicon now, which makes the topic less controversial I suppose. As it turns out, there are some reported benefits for women who use vibrators. Among the reasons for them to incorporate them into their routine are increased arousal, easier orgasms, and an increased libido .  So with all of that in mind, it looks like they could play an important roll in your sexual health, and for that reason, we’d have to be in agreement with the author of the Yahoo article.

Now, on to the guys. While many men probably aren’t interested in trying vibrators, there are other options out there that men can try. For starters, many men enjoy using penis pumps, and if we were to pick one to try we’d go with a water-based model. These can be used in the shower, or anywhere else. Many men who use them report having harder erections, and an ability to last longer in bed, which sounds like pretty good reasons to give them a try . As always, you should check with your doctor before trying these things, and it would be in your best interest to conduct thorough research and find the top rated penis pump before making the purchase. Either way, if you’re looking for something new to spice things up, these things could be worth taking for a spin.

Now, besides pumps and devices of that nature, the options can be somewhat limited for guys. One of the other things to hit the market recently is the fleshlite pleasure tool for guys, and it looks like it could have some potential. While we don’t want to go into full detail about it here because it is somewhat graphic in nature, you should definitely do a quick Google search to learn more about these things if you’re a guy. Like a vibrator, they make be a tool to increase arousal in men, and they even report that with the proper practice, they can help solve that embarrassing premature ejaculation problem that many guys suffer from.

As you can see, there are some tools out there for the dudes too, and we encourage you to try them! If anything, it’s a way to add a new element to your sex life, and if used properly it could make for a fun experience for you and your partner!

Getting some level of fitness for women is essential, and toning for women needs to take place prior to beginning your weight training so that your body is ready for the changes that are going to take place.
