As you add your items to the conveyor belt at the grocery store you look up and what do you see? Usually it is a rack of popular magazines. One magazine that you may have noticed missing in the past is now showing up on racks in new stores. All You, previously only found at Walmart, has branched out and finding its way to shelves at your local grocery store. I picked up the July 2013 at Publix. All You can be found at quite a lot of stores, to see if there is a store near you check out the All You website.
All You Magazine
I’ve always enjoyed All You. It is a well rounded informational and inspirational magazine. It is usually full of great tips for anything from beauty to house cleaning, from savings to health. Definitely topics that I am interested in reading about and can relate too. After all who doesn’t want to save a dollar or two or find a quick and easy recipe for a facial scrub that smells and works great. Lately I’ve been trying to focus on my health and fitness, and admittedly I’ve been having a hard time staying on track. Picking up magazines like All You with some easy tips usually helps motivate me to put down that ice cream bar and pick up a bag of carrots!
All You Healthy Recipes
As I was browsing through the July 2013 issue I found some great recipes for healthier eating. I am not one of those people that can eat the same thing day in and day out. I need variety or I’m setting my self of for failure before I start. Smoothies are a quick and easy breakfast meal and have great staying power if the right ingredients are used.
All You Weight Loss Tips
Staying on the topic of food and health, another pitfall for me is food preparation. I have never been one to cook and plan. However when I’m trying to eat healthy I need to have food made and ready. I need to grab for that healthy snack instead of the candy bar. There was an entire section in this month’s issue answering a readers question “Any tricks I can use to eat right and lose weight?” I found some great tips such as cutting up your veggies and fruits and putting them in snack size bags so you can grab and go. Drinking water to quench your thirst, as a no-calorie alternative to other drinks. It is easy to do this if you keep a cold bottle of water ready to grab at any time.
While it is great to have food ready to go it is also great to rid your fridge of not so healthy choices. You might not think of the condiments you add to your food. Sometimes these can add up to quite a lot of calories. For that reason it is suggested that you stock your refrigerator with low-calorie condiments such as yellow mustard, hummus, or other low-calorie alternatives. Remember a little goes a long way when it comes to flavor and condiments. Looks like I need to take stock of whats in my fridge.
Health From the Inside Out
Not related to food but a tip I really thought was worth mentioning and remembering came from Lindsay Benjamin, Senior Health Editor:
Don’t put off checkups. You never know how they might help. Although I’ve always had good eyesight, my eye doctor just prescribed glasses for me with slightly corrective lenses. Now I have fewer headaches and more energy.
More Health Tips from All You
Some additional articles on Women’s Health you might enjoy, and that I was interested in, included an article titled “A Faster Metabolism at Any Age”. It breaks the stereotype and takes away the excuse of using age as the reason you can’t stay in shape. I also loved the tips in “ Sleep Away the Pounds”. As a working mother and blogger of three kids I often find myself skimping in the “sleeping” department. Sometimes it takes a magazine article to remind me of how important it is.
Get Fit With All You
Many people think they can’t do yoga, they are not flexible or coordinated. My husband use to feel this way before he did some yoga with me. He may not be a huge fan of it but he found that he can do it. Some people would also be surprised at just how much strength you need to hold yoga poses for lengths of time. All You shows you how to do some basic yoga poses to stay fit this month. I did some of my own, I don’t look quite as lean and perfect as those in the magazine but I have found I do love adding yoga into my fitness routine.
