temp20banner20201620fandom20con

A couple of days ago, we received a email asking us to join their vendors list this year. This is very exciting because they are the first con to ever contact us. We think we will be able to go but we have to plan everything out to make sure. We’ll keep you posted. (⌒▽⌒)

What exactly is FANdom? FANdom is a predominately anime based convention that also caters to fans of comics, video games and sci-fi We’ll try to bring everything and anything fans want to see in an all inclusive event like none other! Our location at the Emerald Coast Convention Center in Fort Walton Beach is spacius and large enough to hold a number of events and open things up for attendees to roam around and have a great time.

This time around, November 11-13, 2016, we want to increase the amount of events while still giving you the classic events from years past. Year seven will prove itself to be bigger and better than year six and we hope to continue this trend for years to come.

Music and Fitness: A Hand in Hand Relationship.

Girl With Headphones

Post written by: Dusten

Left, right, left, right sounds like music to your ears right? Maybe not, but keeping rhythm is very important in fitness. Whether you’re lifting weights or taking a light jog around the block to even running a mile or two, keeping a steady rhythm can help you optimize your workout.

Many people instinctively listen to music during exercise, perhaps you’re that person that listens to hard rock while weightlifting to overcome fatigue, or maybe you’re the person on the treadmill just trying to pass time. Whatever the reason, here are some of the ways music affects your workout routine.

Distraction: Well maybe this one’s a little on the nose. Music is a great distraction, decreasing your bodily awareness. Runners usually run longer, faster and that “wall” that every runner fears get pushed back a little. For weightlifting, music distracts you from awareness of exertion and strain on your body, giving you an optimal workout.

Effort: A controlled study by VIVO in 2010 found that cyclists that listened to faster music performed better than cyclists who were listening to slower music, or no music altogether. Music between 120 and 140 bpm gave the best performance, while slower music was best for cool down and slower cycling.

Motivation: There’s something about listening to pop, dance, rap or rock that really makes you want to move, and the right music at the right time gives you a certain “high”. Whether you’re at the gym, at the club, or home in your underwear. Music lightens your mood and during exercise, even the laziest of people can benefit from a dose of music during a routine.

So remember, before you head out to the gym or for a run, slip on some headphones, put on your favorite song, and get the most out of your workout. The above are just some if the benefits to music and exercise, and there are tons more. With time, you’ll see those benefits manifest themselves with optimal results. And if you’re unable to access music during your routine, we can always think of the classic left, left, left, and right, left.

Day 2 of Jillian Michael’s Body Revolution

11111802_458842884274574_5458873014575290444_n

Hello guys. How is everyone? We started the Jillian Michael’s 90 day body revolution and it’s day 2. I can’t say much right now since we just started but I’m happy that we are following a strict plan. It will help keep us on track. I can’t wait to see the results. There are a lot of good reviews on it.

Our dog, Onyx, is not liking the fact that we are taking up the space in the living room when we workout. He groans and moans and then lay somewhere else lol. We are modifying the meal plan to be paleo. I’m loving the smoothies so far, even though we only had two so far. I think the only equipment we need is the stretch bands. We use 5lb weights and we each have our own yoga mat.

I would record us doing the workouts but my phone doesn’t have any more space and the video quality on my ipod 3 is horrible. We will be getting new phones, Iphone 6, tomorrow, hopefully. It will be 64gs and friends are already telling me how good the pictures and videos are. I’m happy to hear that.

Which Milk is Paleo?

Bottles of Different Kinds of Milk

Since we’re going on the Paleo Diet, I wanted to know which milk is paleo and which one isn’t. Here’s what I found out.

  • Real Milk
    • No.
  • Soy Milk
    • No
  • Coconut Milk
    • Yes
  • Almond Milk
    • Yes
  • Cashew Milk (Never tried this myself)
    • Yes
  • Goat Milk
    • No
  • Hemp Milk (Never tried this myself)
    • Yes
    • Additional Fact: Hemp Protein Power, No
  • Rice Milk (Never tried this myself)
    • No

Basically any milk that made with the nuts and water. So now when I go for my coffee at Starbucks, no more soy milk. They have coconut milk so I’ll use that instead. I wonder can they heat that up. We’ll see lol.

Run Otaku Run Year Challenge – Day 2

It felt so good going back to the gym after a week. We hit the elliptical hard even though we only did it for 30 minutes. We normally go for an hour. We choose to do GREEN.

  • 50 Jumping Jacks
  • 50 Squats
  • 20 Crunches
  • 20 minutes Cardio

Doing the squats, I’ve realized that I was able to go down deeper than before. Who knows, maybe the week off was a good thing. The jumping jacks was a improvement as well but I still don’t like to do them because of my big boobs. But oh well you do what you must. We are to rest every other day so that will only be cardio days for an hour. Unless Star wants to run then I’ll would speed walk on the treadmill.
