I just read an article on how much sugar there is in soda, energy drinks and others. PLEASE check the sugar content before you drink it. Water has zero sugars and helps cleanse your body! Remember to think before you drink.
Being on vacation, moving or traveling for work, can put a real kink in your training plans. You don't always have the equipment or environment to complete the workout you have planned. You could skip the workout all together....or you could get a little creative and use what you have around you.
Stairs can be used in place of any cardio equipment or hill workouts. So can any plyometric intervals, like jumping jacks, hops, lateral or long jumps, jumping rope, etc.
Findings and studies indicate that early humans and animals evolved with a higher survival rate when there was gaps in between meals and feeding cylces(24-48 hours). Early humans were hunter-gatherers who often had to hunt, fish, and wander to survive. Of course they were times when the hunting and fishing was not real prosperous, therefore, meals were sometimes scarce and those early humans had to go without food for days. One could say this was the earliest form of fasting.
Yoou should eat a balanced diet. Carbs should abou 65 percent of an adults diet. However eating the right carbs is what will maintain you at an ideal weight or even help you lose weight.

Just bear in mind that cardio gets rid of the fat that covers the muscles along with watching your diet. Eat smart. Cardio 4 times a week or more. Stand with feet shoulder width apart. Then bend to your right sideways, with your right hand sliding down your right thigh and left arm extending overhead ( bent or straight ). Pause, than go back to standing position and perform same thing on left side. Do 30 alternating reps on each side. You can work up to using light 1-3 pound dumbells as you get stronger.
