Physical fitness is an important part of a healthy life. DealDash has many fitness items and equipment up for auction.

Do you live a healthy lifestyle? Many people either currently live a healthy lifestyle or would like to live more healthily. One of the biggest hurdles to overcome is finding time in your busy life to be able to fit in a trip to the gym.

Luckily, DealDash offers lots of fitness products that you can use in the privacy of your own home, and on your own time. Want to work out at night after the kids are in bed, but your gym is closed? No problem! Use these workout items when you want.

ProForm 440R Rower

Rowing Machine / Rower

My favorite piece of fitness equipment that I own is my rowing machine. I have it set up in my basement, and I use it for a few minutes at a time whenever I enter or leave the house since I have to walk right by it to get to my garage. The rower is a great strength training exercise. Also, rowing is an intense calorie-burning exercise, which is why it’s my favorite – it uses the least amount of time, but the maximum calorie-burning power.  Although new rowers with less ability and training will burn fewer calories, the rowing machine is an excellent piece of exercise equipment for use in a fitness or weight-loss program.

If you’ve never used a rower before, please be careful and read all of the instructions. If you use the rower with bad form you can give yourself a back injury. After you have learned the proper form for rowing, shoot for 15-minute sessions at a 1-3 level of resistance. After you have mastered this, try to work yourself up to 30 minutes at a 3-5 level of resistance.

FitBit

The Fitbit comes in a few different forms, such as the FitBit Alta and the FitbBit Zip. They are great little step and calorie counters that can be worn on your body or on your clothing. FitBit even makes a wi-fi scale called the FitBit Aria, and it can help keep you on track during your fitness journey.

Exerpeutic 400XL Electric Treadmill

Treadmill

Almost everyone has used a treadmill at some point in their life. However, if you aren’t familiar with them, treadmills are the indoor motorized equivalent of walking or running in place. The treadmill is equipped with a belt that moves under your feet and you have to walk or run to keep up with its pace. You can set it to walk slowly all the way up to running quickly. You can also adjust the lift or angle of the treadmill so it’s as if you were walking or running up a hill. Your treadmill workout will burn about the same number of calories as walking or running outdoors, yet in your lovely air conditioned and internet equipped house.

Many people wonder if they can actually lose weight and get fit by using a treadmill. Thankfully, the answer is yes, as long as you put in the work and effort that it takes to use it consistently and increase your speed and angle. By training consistently (initially twice a week and then three times a week), you can improve your health greatly.

Losing Weight and Being Healthy With DealDash

Image result for losing weight being healthy Everyone wants to look and feel their best, that’s why DealDash offers many auctions for a healthy lifestyle.

DealDash realizes that losing weight and getting healthy can be a little difficult sometimes. That’s why they offer so many different auctions that can help you on your way to a healthier lifestyle. Getting started on your healthy path might seem hard, but you’re not alone, DealDash is here!

When you’re just getting started on your way to a healthier lifestyle, it’s good to start small, with easy changes to your current lifestyle. One of the best things that you can do for your health is to cut out almost all drinks except for water. No, no, I’m not telling you to give up your morning cup of coffee! I wouldn’t do that to you! However, I would advise to cut out the soda with your lunch, the beer after work, and the wine with dinner. If you are able to do this, and replace those drinks with water (or even sparkling water) on weekdays you will be well on your way to a healthier you. DealDash can help you with your plan to increase your water intake – they have water dispensers, kettles to boil water, water bottles, and more. Just click this link right here and it will take you to see some of the different water options that DealDash offers.

Of course, if you are trying to get fit, you will need to do some exercise as well. Walking is one of the easiest and most enjoyable exercises that you can do. Walking in your neighborhood with a friend or family member for an hour after dinner would be optimal, but since we are getting into the autumn and then winter season soon you might need to think about using a treadmill instead.

Exerpeutic 400XL Electric Treadmill

If you’re getting on a treadmill for the first time, or even more importantly if you’re someone who hasn’t had any strenuous physical activity for at least three months, it’s important to check with your doctor to be sure that your body can handle the extra activity, and ask them what they would recommend as far as a training schedule. For people who do exercise occasionally you can gradually increase the intensity of your exercise by increasing your speed and incline as time progresses. Just be sure that you start slowly. If you strain yourself, you will be in too much pain to want to work out the next day, and then your whole plan could be derailed.

If you haven’t quite worked your way up to being able to exercise just yet, you can gain health benefits by just swapping out your chair for an exercise ball. You don’t need to do any exercise with it just yet, by simply sitting on the exercise ball instead of the couch while watching TV you can reap the health benefits of increased balance and core strength.

Learning About the Benefits of Massage With DealDash

 

Almost everyone enjoys getting a massage. Did you know that in addition to feeling great there are also some very real health benefits?

There have been thousands of studies over the years proving that massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen. If you’re interested in reading the most recent ones, check out the American Massage Therapy Association, they have many recent studies available on their website.

Experts in the health field estimate that approximately ninety percent of disease is stress related. The simple truth is nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Trying to eliminate most of your anxiety and pressure is a great goal for you to have, and massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. Here are just a few ways that massage can help your health:

  • Decreased anxiety
  • Enhanced sleep quality
  • Greater energy
  • Improved concentration
  • Increased circulation
  • Reduced fatigue

Now that we know how beneficial massage can be, wouldn’t it be wonderful to go get a massage every day, or even every week? Realistically that isn’t financially possible for most people, so a great solution is to get some massage products for home use.

 

DealDash has a wonderful selection of all of the latest and greatest massage products that you can use to benefit your body right in your own home. There are many different massagers on the market, and I would say that the one that’s the most beneficial would be a full body chair massager. DealDash has them come up for auction quite frequently. The other two products that are extremely popular for home massages are neck massagers and foot massagers. Guess what? DealDash has those, too! If you would like to check out all of the wonderful massage products that DealDash offers just click this link here and you can choose which is the best one for you.

Continuing Your Quest for Fitness With DealDash

 

On Monday we talked about getting a great body in time for the summer using exercise. Today we are talking about the second part of the equation – eating healthy.

We all have a pretty good idea of what it means to be a healthy eater – everyone know that they should be limiting their carbohydrate and fat intake and boosting their veggie intake. However, sometimes making healthy food choices can be difficult because you are accustomed to eating your favorite junk foods, sweets, pastas, and other delicious but so so healthy foods.

Luckily you can take the sting out of cutting back on your favorite foods by substituting something similar that has less fats and calories. The best way to do that is to try and do a lot of cooking at home.

A few years ago I tried the Atkins diet to lose some weight. It was extremely difficult giving up so many different foods, and now that I am a little bit more well informed I know that the Atkins diet is possibly not the healthiest diet around, but when I was following it I learned a lot about food substitutions. For example, you can make an AWESOME tasting cheesecake filling with Neufchâtel cheese (lower fat and calories than regular cream cheese), Splenda instead of sugar (0 calories), a pinch of salt, and vanilla extract – throw that all into your KitchenAid stand mixer that you got from DealDash, whip it up, and there you have a cheesecake filling that is just as delicious and significantly lower in fat and calories than a traditional cheesecake filling recipe.

Another great way to attempt to eat healthier without feeling like you’re sacrificing too much is making delicious smoothies! You can make smoothies out of just about any yummy tasting fruit like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc, and then add in some healthy vegetables such as spinach or kale and you won’t even be able to notice – and neither will your kids if you’re trying to get the whole family on board with healthier eating. Simply find any smoothie recipe online such as:

Simple Smoothie

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 4 ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt

Just blend it all together in your blender from DealDash, sip, and enjoy!

Living Healthy: Do You Even Lift, DealDash?

 

Welcome back to DealDash Blog’s Living Healthy series. Today’s blog is all about weightlifting for beginners.

 

Are you ready to start your journey into weightlifting or weight training? If you’re a total beginner, then this article is for you! If you have already started your training regimen this might be a little too simple for you, but keep reading you never know when you might pick up a tip or two. I am going to tell you the simple and basic guidelines and rules for starting out in a weightlifting program; no matter if it’s for strength, weight loss, or just overall fitness this article can help you figure things out and really make the most of your new journey into being fit and healthy.

First, let’s talk about some things that you don’t want to do:

  • Using too much weight, too soon – this is a great way to injure yourself and ruin your fitness plan before you even get started. Pick a reasonable weight to start with, but if you can perform 30 reps with a certain weight, you probably should bump up the weight a little bit at a time.
  • Moving through repetitions too quickly, going too fast; because remember, there is nothing gained by lifting weights too fast. You should always lift weights in a slow and controlled manner. It’s better for the muscles, it increases tension and lessens the likely hood of having an accident and injuring yourself.

Now that we have a couple of the “don’ts” out of the way, let’s get to the “do’s”:

  • You don’t need to weight train every day to get healthy. Significant strength and fitness progress can be obtained obtained with only two workouts per week. Of course, it would be a great idea to get in some cardio exercises a couple of days per week, also. Don’t forget to also take a couple of days per week to rest, as well.
  • Take one day off from weight training between each workout. The days in between are the days that you should be getting in your cardio workouts.
  • For the best results, at least one set of 8-12 repetitions should be performed
  • It should take four to five seconds to complete one repetition through a complete range of motion; in a slow and very controlled manner.
  • Rest at least 30 seconds and no more than 90 seconds between sets of each exercise; and 1 to 2 minutes between each exercise.
  • Stay hydrated! There’s nothing worse than getting dehydrated and having to stop training for the day. Be sure to drink at least the minimum recommended 8-10 glasses of water each and every day; dehydration can make you weak, have headaches, and if it’s an ongoing problem it can even make you sick.

Now that you have some work out tips, how about checking out DealDash to see what kinds of weight training equipment they have for auction?

Living Healthy: How to Pick the Best Fresh Produce

 

Welcome back to DealDash Blog’s Living Healthy series. Today’s blog is all about the tips and tricks to choosing the best produce items at the supermarket.

 

I don’t know how many times I have gone into the supermarket, and picked out some great looking produce, got it home, and it tastes…Not bad, but tastes like nothing, like cardboard. This was happening to me way too often, so I started doing a little research to figure out how to get the best produce at the supermarket that I was able to find.

Of course, the number one way to get the freshest and best tasting produce is to buy things when they are in season where you live. If you’re somewhere warm like California or Florida, you’re in luck! Not only are there some great things grown right in your own home state, the distance that other things have to travel up from Mexico or South America is considerably shorter than someone who lives in Maine or Montana.

Here are some quick and easy tips on picking great tasting produce at the supermarket even if the items are actually in season:

Apples: Choose fruits that are deeply colored, firm, naturally shiny, and heavy for their size.

 

Artichokes: Choose globes that have tight leaves and feel heavy for their size. The leaves should squeak when pressed against each other.

Asparagus: Choose firm, smooth, and brightly-colored stalks with compact tips. Avoid limp stalks. Choose stalks of equal thickness to ensure even cooking times.

Avocados: Choose avocados that feel slightly soft to the touch. Firmer avocados may be ripened at home, but avoid rock-hard ones. Also avoid avocados with cracks or dents.

Bananas: Choose bright yellow bananas to eat right away or green bananas to ripen at home. Avoid fruits that are bruised or split.

Blueberries: Choose berries that are firm, dry, and blue (not red or green). A white sheen is natural. Also check the bottom of the basket to make sure there aren’t any crushed or spoiled berries.

Broccoli: Choose broccoli with firm stalks, tight florets, and crisp green leaves. Avoid yellowed or flowering florets.

Celery: Choose firm, unblemished stalks. The stalks and leaves should be green, not yellow.

Corn: Choose corn with bright green husks and moist but not slimy silk. Peel back the husk to ensure the kernels are plump and not dry.

Cucumbers: Choose cucumbers that are uniformly green (not yellow).

Grapefruits: Choose fruits that have smooth, thin skins and are heaviest for their size. They should feel firm but slightly springy to the touch. Don’t worry about color.

Grapes: Choose fruits that are firm, plump, and heavy for their size. They should be firmly attached to the stems without wrinkled or brown spots.

Lemons and Limes: Choose fruits that are fragrant and heaviest for their size. Avoid fruits that are shriveled.

 

Lettuce, Spinach, and Other Leafy Greens: Choose greens with fresh, crisp leaves. Avoid any that are wilted or slimy.

Mangoes: Choose fruits that are slightly soft to the touch and fragrant near the stem end.

Onions and Shallots: Choose dry, firm bulbs that feel heavy for their size. Avoid any with soft spots or green sprouts.

Oranges: Choose fruits that heaviest for their size and have firm, smooth skins. Don’t worry about color. For Mandarin oranges, make sure skins are firm, not shriveled.

Peaches: Choose fragrant, deeply colored (not green) fruits that are firm but slightly soft to the touch.

Pears: Pears are usually picked before they are fully ripe, but choose fruits that are free of bruises and look for any that are getting soft just below the stem.

Peas: Choose crisp, green pods. Avoid bulging, dried, yellow, or white pods.

Peppers: Choose firm, naturally shiny peppers that feel heavy for their size.

Pomegranates: Choose fruits that are heavy for their size. Cracks are a good sign that the fruits are bursting with plump seeds; just make sure there isn’t any mold in the cracks.

Potatoes: Choose firm, smooth potatoes. Avoid those with bruises, green spots, or sprouts.

Strawberries: Choose berries that are fragrant, uniformly red (not yellow or green), and shiny with fresh green tops. Also check the bottom of the basket to make sure there aren’t any crushed or spoiled berries.

Summer Squash: Choose squash with naturally shiny, taught, unblemished skin. Avoid squash that appear dull or have soft spots.

Sweet Potatoes and Yams: Choose potatoes with firm, unwrinkled skins and no bruises or cuts, as they are highly perishable.

Tomatoes: Choose tomatoes that are fragrant, smell earthy at the stem end, and feel heavy for their size. Avoid tomatoes with wrinkled skins.

Watermelons: Choose fruits that are firm and heavy and sound hollow when thumped. A properly ripened watermelon should have a yellow spot on one side where it sat on the ground

 

There we go! That’s the list! I personally made a copy of this list and keep it with my supermarket coupons so I know what I’m looking for when I am shopping for fruits and veggies.

Another way to be sure that you are getting great produce is to shop at the farmer’s market. The only downfall there is that you will probably only be able to find things that are in season. In my area, there is a farmer’s market going on in my town and every small town around me. When you go to the farmer’s market you are getting delicious fruits and veggies that are extremely fresh because they are grown locally. In addition to that, the prices are definitely better than any supermarket around, especially if there are multiple vendors selling the same fruits and veggies.
