Fitness and Women: 5 Tips on the Best Way To Keep Yourself Exercising

Elizabeth Rondon




“There is no easy way out. If there were, I would have bought it. And believe me, it’d be one of my favorite things!”

We’d all take it if there was a magic pill to do the work for you then. There are lots of companies out there promoting to this very fact, and getting very rich doing so.


Why can we look for the magic pill and how can we condition ourselves to embrace exercise?

I believe because we have been conditioned to do so that we look for the magic pill. Where everything is quick and built for convenience, we live in a microwave society. Just look at express checkouts, all the fast food outlets, speed dating and the list goes on. Why, because life doesn’t work that way.

Becoming unfit or unhealthy does not just happen. It is a process that occurs by unhealthy choices bit by bit, little by little. We stay my favorite one more will not hurt me or watching TV on the lounge for 5 minutes more or the size of the pie gets just a little bigger. We don’t even notice because we become accustomed to the way things are and suddenly our weight is up and our fitness is down.


What can we do to overcome this?

These are my 5 quick tips to start moving away from the magic pill to a more healthy attitude to the Fitness and Women fast fix menu.


TIP 1: Think about how you’ll feel in 20 years’ time from now.

We’re living to a much older age thanks to the advances in modern medicine. Do you want to be living life to the fullest or do you want to be confined to a bed?

I was training a lady in her early 30’s one day and I knew we were discussing how she got herself motivated every day and that exercise was one of her least favorite things to do. How insightful is that.


TIP 2: Be kind to yourself.

Put away the scales for a while. YES I did say that! Focus on how you are feeling after you go for a walk. Focus on how strong your body is starting to feel and how much better you feel inside of yourself.

Many people I ‘ve trained this way say that it’s when you’re not worrying about a number, like the pressure is off. It is strange but the Women who’ve adhered to the no scales policy end up having better results that the Women that are looking at the numbers all of the time


TIP 3: Remember it took a while to get where you need the Women and Fitness menu, therefore it is going to take some time to become healthy and fit.

This will help you to set realistic goals for yourself. If it took 5 years to get in the shape you are it won’t be a 10 week turnaround unless of course you have an amazing support crew of Personal Trainers, Nutritionists, Dieticians and other health professionals around you to get you back. So long as you are taking consistent steps things will improve.


TIP 4: Try Dancing

Sometimes we get so caught up in the Gym side of exercise and become so self-conscious that we forget to have fun. Put on your own favorite tunes like you did when you were a kid and when you are alone or with a friend dance around the lounge room. The worst thing that will happen is you’ll have a smile in your face


TIP 5: Start Small.

How do we eat an elephant? One Bite at a time! Don’t try and do everything at once. When faced with what can seem a huge task of becoming healthy we can become so overwhelmed we can become paralysed with options, so we do nothing. Start with one thing, get used to that as part of your lifestyle then when it is second nature start on the next thing, and so on until the following thing you know you’ve turned your entire life around.

These are all tips that I used to train myself and have gone on to train many other Women using the same methods. I do hope you’ll throw away the idea of the “Fitness and Women” fast fix menu and instead embark on the most amazing journey and gift which you could give your self. The gift of health, wellness, empathy and forgiveness.

Summer Makeup Rules

Elizabeth Rondon



A number of you have asked this important question about your own makeup. I ‘ve had countless conversations about the topic of shiny vs. matte. Women feel that it will age their skin, making it look drier and older than it actually is.

Your skin in its healthiest state, like hair and nails, should have a subtle glow, a natural sheen. It ages the skin as quickly as if it had too much shine when your makeup is too matte! A subtle shine can add “pop” to the eye area, highlight cheekbones beautifully, and give the appearance of fuller lips instantly.

After painting faces for almost sixteen years, I have to say I love to see women of all ages and skin tones wearing a little something reflective on their face. The key word here is “little”. I’m not talking about going out and buying metallic makeup to wear to work everyday. Frosty lipstick, no body glitter, or shimmering face powders are allowed! The kind of shine I love the best is a ‘satin’ finish. Products with this ‘satin’ finish catch light and give life to your complexion!

A couple of rules to keep in mind:

For example: matte eye shadows with dewy lips, or satin-finish eye shadows with a traditional lipstick texture.

2 If your skin is dry or flaky, shimmery makeup would not be the best for you. Stick to dewy, creamy textures. This may give your skin a healthy glow. Try Nars Cream Shadows and Blushes in addition to Stila Convertible Color.

3 If your skin is oily, look for creamy, slightly shimmery eye shadow colors that are smudge-proof. This help keep your powder shadows in place during the day ahead and will definitely serve as a base color. Try Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow Sticks and Stila Shadow Pots.

Remember, makeup is not permanent. It comes off! If this all still seems a bit scary, a well-trained makeup artist show you the way to look your very best and can answer any questions!
