In fact, some of us have a to-do list for our to-do list...and a calendar that shows alarms for said to-do lists. But when we're busy as hell and trying to sort it all out, exercise is the first thing to fall out of its designated slot. The truth is, it deserves its very own calendar — one that can hardly be messed up. That's exactly what we and Puma are giving you.
How to Look Slimmer Without Actually Losing Weight It seems like a hoax, right? No, we're not trying to sell you a waist trainer or some sort of Spanx for your midsection to feign being thin. Instead, this "secret" is an actual exercise routine that strengthens your body but in the process also helps create a longer, leaner figure. The areas in question that you need to start focusing on: your back and shoulders. Kind spokesperson and Strong Is the New Skinny author Jennifer Cohen says that focusing on these areas of the body helps create a "V-shaped" back that creates the illusion that you've shed "10 to 15 pounds." More importantly, working out these areas builds strength and tones your upper body—something that should be added to your daily routine anyway.

High on our goals list at the moment is strong but not bulky legs that we can show off. And while we’ve covered one Bar Method technique before, exhaustive hour-long ballet workouts just aren’t possible for everyone. That’s why we decided it might be a wise (and Zen) idea to look to the practice of yoga.
Naomi Watts' Trainer Shares 5 Moves for Killer Abs There’s no denying Naomi Watts is a natural beauty. Her red carpet lipstick choices alone have inspired us to indulge in some online shopping sprees — how could we forget her glossy rose pucker at Cannes and that epic red lipstick moment at the Golden Globes last year. Looking beyond her many memorable makeup moments, we’ve also long admired that the busy actress continuously carves out time to stay in such phenomenal shape. How to Burn 500 Calories in 45 Minutes Burning 500 calories is no easy feat, as anyone who’s taken any intense cardio class can attest to. Burning 500 calories in 45 minutes sounds just too good to be true (or the stuff of nightmares, depending on your current physical state). Though you’ll easily find a workout class to help you achieve this lofty goal, sometimes we just want to burn 500 calories in the comfort of our own gym, on our own time—is that too much to ask? No, fitness buffs, indeed it is not.
