Thin and Strong is about eating healthier but not feeling deprived. It’s about finding the motivation you need to start exercising, even if that simply means taking a daily walk. It’s about not giving up even when you eat something you shouldn’t have or miss a day of exercise. It’s about changing the way you think about yourself and your body because you’re already amazing just the way you are! Thin and Strong is a movement to empower, encourage, inspire, motivate, and help women (and men) just like you who are ready to make a change and are finally up for the challenge. You can do this!
Hello Beautiful! Yep, I’m talking to you…
I want to help you stop trying to get “the perfect body” and help you turn the beautiful body that you already have into one that is healthier and stronger instead. I want to help you transform your body into one that provides you with more energy, makes you look good in your clothes (and when you’re naked), and makes you feel better about you! This website is all about me helping you do just that! Please check out my most recent posts below and find your way around the site by using the navigation on the top and on the sidebar to the right. I’d love to hear from you too, so please leave me a comment!
Your body is similar to a car engine, in the sense that it needs to be fueled properly if you want it to workout hard, run great lengths at great speeds and overall improve your fitness and athletic performance. No matter how much you desire to push yourself to the limits during your workouts, this will be impossible without the right amount of energy and fuel.
It is also importan to note that any efforts made in exercise can easily be wasted when we do not eat a proper diet. This factor applies to increasing our stamina in workouts, but, also applies to the overall results in increasing fitness levels, building strength and burning fat.

You’ve just begun your workout and you’re feeling great: your breathing is steady, you’re breaking a sweat, and you’re even beginning to really feel the burn when suddenly you hit the wall.
All of your energy is gone and you are in serious need of a breather. If this sounds at all familiar, you may be experiencing difficulty maintaining your stamina.
Though this may seem alarming, but you are not alone. Many people experience these low levels of stamina after long stretches of time without working out, while others may not be able to come to such a rapid explanation for their untimely fatigue.

Your physical stamina measures the ability of your heart and lung muscles to function efficiently and supply the needed amounts of oxygenated blood during long and intense periods of physical activity.
On the other hand, your mental stamina defines the ability of your mind to push through difficult circumstances and think clearly for a very long time without fatigue.
You need both physical and mental stamina because they work hand in hand. For instance, even if your body is well-conditioned, but your mind is fatigued, and vice versa, it can be difficult to succeed in, let alone finish a particular task. [click to continue…]
