3 Mantras to Get You Through Anything

I’ve met a lot of really cool, successful and interesting people, and I always have the same question for them: what inspires you? More times than not, it’s either a person (family member, group of people) or a mantra they think about often to keep them going. Me personally? I’m more of a mantra girl. I may think about someone during a workout that inspires me to push a bit more, but for the most part, and especially on solo bike rides, I spend a lot of time in my own head. While I’m generally an optimist and see the good in most situations, here are my top 3 mantras that can truly get me through anything… 1. Live Kindly Of course I had to throw my own one into the mix. It’s my favorite. It means so many different things wrapped up into two simple words. At the beginning of this journey, I made a few promises to myself: I would never look back on the past, I would never compare myself to others and I would think of myself in the most positive light. Unproductive thoughts lead to, well, unproductive everything. By keeping this simple mantra in the …

10 Foods Fit Women Need:

Are you picking the proper fueling foods? Here are 10 essential items active women need in their pantries, refrigerators and freezers. These foods are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients to keep you fueled, full, and ready to take on the world! 1. Oatmeal. Soluble fiber from oatmeal, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.  2. Berries. A handful of frozen berries adds antioxidants and fiber to your morning smoothie or oatmeal. Blueberries are only 80 calories per cup, and they pack a powerful nutrition punch by supporting brain, eye and heart health. 3. Fish.  Fatty fish are one of the best foods sources of essential omega-3 fatty acids and also provide vitamin D, a critical nutrient that many women lack (it works with calcium to preserve bone strength). 4. Flaxseed.  Not a seafood fan? Flaxseeds are also rich in omega-3 fats, and they’re also filled with fiber. Mix a spoonful into oatmeal, Greek yogurt or smoothies to add flavor, texture and nutrition. 5. Quinoa. It contains all 9 essential amino acids as well as bone-boosting minerals like copper, phosphorous, iron and magnesium. 6. Greek yogurt.  With twice as much protein as regular yogurt, the Greek version helps …

How to Find The Right BPM for Your Perfect Running Playlist

Running to music can really boost your performance, but how do you choose the right playlist for your runs? The answer is in the music’s BPM, or beats per minute. This chart helps you find the right BPM to look for in a song depending on how you run. To find the ideal BPM for your running mix, run2rhythm, a site that sells running mixes, advises you perform this test: 1. Run for 15 minutes at a pace you are comfortable with 2. If you are starting out this will be slower than if you are a conditioned runner. 3. During that run count your steps for 1 minute. Do this several times to get an average. 4. Then, refer to the chart below to determine the BPM you should choose. Once you know the BPM you should be running to, you can find the right music and create the ultimate playlist to help you maintain a steady rhythm for your runs. You could also switch up the BPM playlists if you want a more intense run (166 BPM, for example) or an easier jog (150 BPM).

10 Great Habits to Stick By For a Healthy Life

Did you know that if you’re write an ambition down you’re way more likely to stick to it? It’s true! One of our favorite bloggers, Zanita, shared 10 of her great habits in hopes of successfully achieving them. These are perfect for every LoveSurf girl to try.  Exercise Regularly. What I’ve found is that reducing the amount of time in my commitment is incredibly helpful. If I say I’m going to the gym, I’m commit to 15-20 of cardio minutes and then once I’m in there I’ll end up doing 40 anyway. Sometimes. Every bit counts! And helps immensely with your energy and focus.  Read for 20 minutes everyday. Well it doesn’t need to be 20 minutes but a good healthy swig of book juice into your brain will really boost your brain. We can all use a little extra learning!  Drink water. Drinking water when you first wake and then loading up throughout the day is probably the simplest and cheapest way to improve the quality of your life. Getting more H20 can improve your digestion, your skin, help you lose weight, give you more energy – it benefits all your bodies process.  Make a routine. Even if you’re surrounds are in constant flux, you can still …

LoveSurf Girl: Chelsea Cruz

    Bio: My name is Chelsea Cruz and I am an energetic and passionate personal trainer, writer, speaker, dancer and sports model. Before I moved to Orange County and became such an ambitious fitness freak, I was living in San Diego, CA where I grew up with a love for the ocean, dance and the outdoors! If I wasn’t surfing, swimming, camping, hiking, or playing beach volleyball, you could find me at dance practice or working out at the gym. Of course I found these activities fun and enjoyable, but the best and most rewarding aspect of living such an active lifestyle was how these activities challenged me to become a stronger, more courageous, and more beautiful person from the inside out. In life we all face adversity. What I have found to be true in my own experience is that the hardest part of encountering adversity is not the struggle itself… The hardest part is facing the fears and weaknesses the struggle reveals in you and then applying to your life the truth and lessons it was meant to teach you. Surfing, swimming, kayaking, and SUP boarding in the open ocean have been a great example to me of …

Fit Tip: Beach Running

Bored with the usual grind of going for a run and having that run consist of miles of flat, hard asphault or dealing with colorful characters while on a treadmill? If you’re lucky enough to live by the beach, or be visiting one soon , switch up your routine and go for a jog in the sand. Not only is the view gorgeous and the smell of the ocean way better than your typical street/gym smells, the sand offers excellent resistance. That resistance helps burn 30% more calories! Here’s some tips to get the most out of your sandy workout: Choose your equipment: You don’t need a whole lot for a run on the beach. We would choose these versitile shorts from Nike that have a matching halter top for plenty of support. Also, the shorts are made out of swimsuit material just in case you decide to take a quick dip. Go barefoot. Going without shoes allows you to use your toes to grip the ground, so it’s great for the muscles in your feet and calves. Just be careful because running on uneven surfaces can increase the risk of sprains and tendonitis, not to mention cuts and scrapes …
