3 Fat Loss Secrets From Foxxy the Dog
Foxxy the Dog here, and since my Human is away on holiday, I thought
I'd email you with 3 to help you lose fat.
After all, I finally figured out how to use the
"Human's" computer, but if you see any spelling mistakes, please
furgive me, but my big paws aren't meant for these small computerz.
Oh, and if you're a cat, please stop reading. Because I don't like
you and I will chase you down if I find out you are reading this.
Okay, woof woof?
Here we go...
Tip #1 - Get your exercise in the morning
After my morning walk, I usually get a rawhide treat, and then I
just lie on the ground waiting for my next walk. And while I do that,
I get to listen to my light classical as my Human goes to End Results to help other humans
get in better shape...
...He tells them:
"It doesn't matter when you exercise for fat loss, all that matters
is that you are consistent. And when you exercise first thing in the
morning, that means you will be more consistent. And being consistent
is one of the most important things in your fat loss program."
Woof, woof, maybe that's why I get a long walk and some sprints
first thing in the morning? Bark bark!
That is probably why the vet once said to my human, "Wow, your dog
has six pack abs!"
So if you are struggling to be consistent, get up a little earlier
and do your workout before life/work/family gets in the way and
stops you from getting your workout.
Tip #2 - Eat 3 medium sized meals and some very healthy snacks
Since I'm a dog, I'll eat just about anything. And that is good news,
because that means I love to snack on apples, blueberries, broccoli,
red peppers, and bananas.
Woof, I probably eat more fruits and vegetables than most humans,
not including my Human. He eats a lot of fruits and vegetables every
day, even while traveling.
And he has nice abs too. Woof, woof, woof.
Tip #3 - Stay active on your off days with fun & playful activity
Even though I'm almost 5 human years old, I still get anxious when
my Human leaves me alone at home and goes to the gym.
Woof, woof, woof! Bark, bark, bark! Whine. Bark Bark! WOOF!
I am sure am glad that he only goes 3-4 times per week, instead of
6-7 times per week like some folks.
On his days off, we go to the beach and parks and have fun. No long,
slow, boring cardio for him. I won't allow it.
Grrrrrrrrr. That's what I say to cardio machines. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
I'd rather chase squirrels any day than get on a treadmill or one of
those silly elliptical machines.
So bottom line:
1) Do short, burst workouts CONSISTENTLY.
2) Eat 3 mid-size meals and lots of whole, natural food snacks in
3) Train 3-4 times per week and stay active on your off-days.
It's that simple.
Let me know what you think.

Come visit us:
24402 Hawthorne Blvd.
Here in Las Vegas for a short trip to cap off Summer.
I always stay fit, eat right, and do my best not gain body fat when I travel even though there are a lot of obstacles on the road.
Everything can be managed.
Some of my travel weapons that keep me on-track…
1) My Red Oxx Air Boss carry-on bag that holds a lot of stuff (including snacks and my TRX straps)
2) I use the hotel gym, or I buy a day pass to a local MMA gym. I schedule workouts while traveling.
3) I get up earlier than I want to in order to get my body moving(it's what its built for!) or eat properly
4) I plan ahead – for example, I’ll buy extra bags of raw almonds, apples...
5)I’ll be reading one of my favorite books, “Man’s Search for Meaning”. I recommend you invest in a copy of this book…it will move and inspire you to action. Your mind needs a workout too!
“Do you have an opportunistic mindset, focused on the possibilities in your life? Or do you always focus on the obstacles? Start to pay attention and change your mindset to set yourself up for success.
Having someone to share the healthy/fitness lifestyle with definitely makes things a lot easier and helps you stay on track. We keep each other motivated and focused and train together on a frequent basis. My good friend, always talks about the importance of social support when you’re trying to achieve something, and it doesn’t get any better than having it right in the same house next to you at all times” – Rachel Cosgrove
