DD Fitness: The Top 5 reasons you can’t lose weight

first_imgThis week Donegal Daily’s fitness guru Emmett Rushe tells you why weight loss isn’t always easy.The premise of it is easy. Create a calorie deficit and you will lose weight.The execution of this, however, doesn’t always go according to plan. There are people who try time and time again to lose weight but, somehow, always seem to fall short of their goal.Sometimes the reason we are not losing the weight we would like is because we have to adjust things in a way that doesn’t sit well with us.You may have to adjust your diet in a way you didn’t expect.You may have to train in a way you didn’t expect. You may have to give up things you like in order to get to where you would like to be.All of these things can have an effect on whether you reach your weight loss goals or not.This is something I ALWAYS tell my Rushe Fitness members.You can join us in our Lean in 2019 program on September 16th if you want to find an easy to follow method of losing weight the right way. CLICK HERE NOW!There are times where we might need a mirror held up in front of us, so we can finally see the things that are keeping us from reaching our goals. The majority of the time the main thing stopping us, is us.We are unwilling to make the changes we need to make in order to get to where we want to be.Below I am going to list the top 5 reasons for failure to achieve weight loss that I have come across.You are unwilling to actually start your diet.This might seem like a silly statement, but one of the biggest obstacles that people face when starting out with weight loss is actually starting.They are willing to train.They are willing to take supplements.They are willing to do endless burpees.Yet when you ask them how their diet is going, they suddenly become quiet.Starting your diet is the first hurdle you will meet when you start out with weight loss. Advertisement You can’t keep eating the same foods that caused your weight gain and expect different results. You think that training alone will get you where you need to be.Training is a great way to burn calories.Whether it is weight training, cardio or a mixture of both, they all help to burn calories.However, training alone, sometimes isn’t enough to create a large enough calorie deficit in order for you to lose weight. It is very easy to take in more calories than you expend.For some, they think that adding in more and more training will be the answer.When you are in the right calorie deficit, you don’t need excessive amounts of training.Excessive amounts of training won’t always help you to lose weight.You eat ‘healthy’ but don’t count the snacks.To start with, “eating healthy” is a redundant statement when it comes to weight loss.You are either eating for weight loss or you are not.You can eat healthy all you want, but if you are not in a deficit, you will not lose weight.We also have to take into account the snacks that you don’t register as food.A biscuit here or there.  Finishing your kid’s chips before scraping the leftovers into the bin.The cakes, buns, sweets that are laying around work, that you don’t want, but can’t help indulging in every time you pass by.These items are very calorie-dense, they have a lot of calories for a small portion of food.Even though you eat healthy at your main meals, you are not taking into account all the small things that add up and can send you over your daily calorie amount.You drink too much alcohol.This is a simple one.If you drink multiple times per week, you are more likely to be overweight.You have the alcohol calories, fluid retention, decrease fat burning due to the body having to excrete the alcohol.All these things will cause you to gain weight.‘But I only have one glass of wine’ Advertisement Seriously?Let’s be realistic here.Who only has one glass of wine?You at least have 2 glasses and they are not the usual measure of wine, it is more than half of a large glass each time and almost a bottle by the time you are finished.If you are doing this multiple times per week, (does Thursday to Sunday sound familiar?) , you are more likely to be overweight.Your weekends are a disaster.The last scenario is people who do well when they are in a routine. They plan and prepare their food all week; at work, at home, after training.Once they hit the weekend however, everything changes.They are out of routine and snack on things they usually don’t snack on.They eat out more.They eat processed foods more.They drink more alcohol.They drink high calorie flavoured coffees. It is extremely easy to mess up 5 days of good work through training and good nutrition in a single weekend.What’s worse is you can go so far over on your calories that it will carry over into a day or 2 of the following week.Do these things every weekend and over the course of a year you can see the pounds creeping on.If you recognise one or more of these things and realise that they might be your downfall, maybe it’s time to change things up a bit.It’s never nice to have our faults held up in front of us.But sometimes it’s exactly what we need for us to realise that, this is what the problem is and to motivate us to finally change.#leanin2019Our next set of Lean in 2019 classes starts on September 16th.Now the kids are heading back to school, you can get back into routine and have time for yourself.Let us help you to achieve your goals.Click the link below to see our extensive range of times and membership options.https://www.rushefitness.ie/class/lean-in-2019-gym-plan/Spaces are filling up fast so don’t delay, get booking NOW and get the rest of 2019 off to a great start!DD Fitness: The Top 5 reasons you can’t lose weight was last modified: August 30th, 2019 by Emmet RusheShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Durban: two airports for 2010

first_img14 October 2009Construction of the R7-billion international airport at La Mercy, to the north of Durban, is set for completion by early 2010, and the airport is expected to be operational by March, in time to welcome visitors to the 2010 Fifa World Cup™.“While this airport will come into operation in March 2010, owing to the Fifa World Cup, we will keep the two Durban airports operational to cater for the expected influx of passengers during that period,” Transport Minister Sibusiso Ndebele said during a visit to the airport this week.This means that KwaZulu-Natal province will have two international airports operating at the same time for a certain period next year.According to Business Report, the existing Durban International Airport will then be closed, with the land being earmarked for industrial use.“Our presence here today is testimony that come 2010, our airports, roads and rail infrastructure will be ready to accommodate the transportation of more than 400 000 expected fans to various places for the tournament,” Ndebele said.Economic contributionAccording to the Department of Transport, the La Mercy airport will initially have the capacity to handle 7.5-million passengers annually, with a 3.7-kilometre runway capable of accommodating new generation aircraft such as the double decker Airbus A380.By 2060, it is envisaged that the airport will be able to handle a projected 45-million passengers per year.“We estimate that about 270 000 jobs will be created directly and indirectly due to this project,” Ndebele said, adding that it would contribute in the region of R20-billion to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP), result in R6.9-billion in fixed investment, and grow state revenue by R4.3-billion.Airport naming processThe Cabinet is expected to approve and officially announce the new name of the airport soon. This was of interest not only to locals but to the aviation community internationally, Ndebele said.“Renaming becomes even more urgent because internationally they cannot fly to a place with no name,” he said. “After the final draw on 4 December 2009, travel agents must start booking for the World Cup in June 2010 because the countries will know where the first round matches will be played.”Ten other major airports are been renovated ahead of the World Cup, including construction of the R900-million central terminal building at Cape Town International Airport.Beyond 2010Looking beyond the World Cup, Ndebele said that as a country that sought to grow its tourism industry – and with the numbers of tourists arriving continuing to grow – it was important to invest in such infrastructure.He pointed out that there were 54 airlines flying into South Africa in 2009 as compared to 18 in 1993, and that annual passenger numbers had risen from 12-million in 1999 to an expected 23-million this year.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Indian cricketers call up CoA members as ICC Champions Trophy uncertainty prolongs

first_imgIt’s not just the Indian cricket fan who is confused over the uncertainty surrounding India’s participation in the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy. With the BCCI having missed the squad announcement deadline for the tournament, even the Indian cricketers are unsure if they will get a chance to defend the title they won in 2013. (BCCI revenue share halved by ICC but still more than others)”A number of Indian cricketers are ringing us up to ask, ‘Are we going or not?’ Why do we need to put them in such a situation,” a COA member asked us a rhetorical question. (BCCI isolated at International Cricket Council: Sources to India Today)The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (COA) led by Former CAG Vinod Rai is currently overseeing BCCI operations. They are making it amply clear as far as they are concerned the way out of the current crisis is not strong arm tactics. After losing the ICC vote and significant revenue share the BCCI general body is likely to meet next week to mull over the decision to pull the Indian team out of Champions trophy.It’s clear any such decision will not have the blessings of COA. “The consequences of such a move will be legal. We may have to cough up a heavy figure. Besides it will give Indian cricket a bad name,” the BCCI COA source told India Today. (Also Read: BCCI loses both revenue and governance vote at ICC meet)The COA members had communicated this line to the BCCI representative at ICC who overlooked their advice did exactly what the BCCI SGM asked him to stick to the original revenue sharing formula that best suits BCCI. (BCCI not to take “extreme position” against ICC’s revenue sharing model)advertisement”Indian cricket is doing very well on the field. We need to showcase them not (boycott). If we don’t go what will the players do in June? Let’s not get them demoralized,” he added.With the big wigs in BCCI expected to get together only next week, the players may remain in the dark longer. Will this decision go to the courts as well? “We don’t want to take a hypothetical view. We are not against elected members. We will go that way only if they follow the negative route,” he said.last_img read more

Enbridge shares fall after Minnesota judge issues Line 3 recommendation

first_imgIt says utilizing the existing route would mean physically removing the old pipe and replacing it, a process that would require Enbridge to stop oil shipments for about 16 months, effectively removing 390,000 barrels per day of crude oil takeaway capacity.The existing route crosses two Ojibwe Native American reservations where tribal governments have voiced opposition to replacing the line, setting up the potential for future disputes, Desjardins says.Judge Ann O’Reilly wrote that Enbridge has established that the project is needed, but that the negative consequences to Minnesota of the company’s more southerly preferred route outweigh the benefits. The cost-benefit analysis shifts in favour of approving the project if Enbridge builds the pipeline in Line 3’s existing trench, she said.O’Reilly’s recommendations aren’t binding on the commission, but they’re the product of an extensive public hearing and comment process.Commission Chair Nancy Lange acknowledged at a hearing last month that whatever the commission decides, the dispute is likely to end up in court.Enbridge said in a statement that it was pleased the judge listened to the extensive evidence for the need for the project, and will be taking time to review the recommendation that it use the existing right-of-way. CALGARY, A.B. – Shares in Enbridge Inc. were trading down nearly five per cent the day after a judge in Minnesota recommended that its Line 3 pipeline replacement project follow its existing route across the state rather than the company’s preferred route.Enbridge traded as low as $37.86, off $1.96, on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Tuesday morning.In an overnight note, analysts at Desjardins Capital Markets say the administrative law judge’s report could mean delays for the project if the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission adopts her recommendation. A vote is expected in June.last_img read more

Singapore jails Indian for giving police false info

first_imgSingapore: An Indian national has been jailed for two weeks for falsely accusing two persons of forcing her into prostitution as she did not want her husband to find out how she was earning a living in Singapore. Kalaiselvi Murugiyan (24) made a police report last year claiming that a man and a woman had forced her to become a prostitute, The Straits Times reported on Tuesday. She pleaded guilty to giving false information to Police Inspector Mohamed Raffiq Mohamed Ishak of the Central Police Division. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportCourt documents did not say what she was working as in Singapore. The court heard that Kalaiselvi went to the Rochor Neighbourhood Police Centre on November 1 last year to make a report. She was referred to the Central Police Division to have her statement recorded. The Specialised Crime Branch then investigated the case. Deputy Public Prosecutor Grace Goh told the court that Kalaiselvi lied to Inspector Raffiq while giving her statement at the Police Cantonment Complex on November 1. The man and woman were later arrested. Kalaiselvi owned up to her lies at around 2.30 pm the next day. Kalaiselvi, who was not represented by a lawyer, told District Judge Christopher Tan on Tuesday that she did not want to go to jail. She pleaded for forgiveness and said she had to take care of her family members in India. Before handing down the sentence, Judge Tan stressed that two persons had been falsely implicated and arrested as a result of her lies. “Valuable police resources were wasted,” he said. For giving false information to a police officer, Kalaiselvi could have been jailed for up to a year and fined up to SGD 5,000.last_img read more
