7 at-home fitness machines you should actually splurge on this year

When the first shut down happened earlier this year, I was really worried about losing my fitness progress. I was going to the gym anywhere from 5 to 7 times a week, doing a mix of personal training sessions and using the machines on my own. Even though gyms reopened, I haven’t felt comfortable going back and I know I am not alone.

Due to the pandemic, it was nearly impossible to find appropriately-priced dumbbells anywhere online for months (At one point, I saw a single 10-pound dumbbell going for $65 on Amazon). I soon realized that the best quality investment was to buy an actual at-home fitness a machine – ahem, I mean studio.

Here’s how to lose weight before the New Year

The New Year always brings with it, a lot of celebration and chances are you want to lose some weight before the end of December so that you can look good and feel great when 2021 arrives.

Truth be told, weight loss should not be for an occasion or a reason. In fact, anything that you do too quickly is probably not good for your health. While I am not in favour of sudden weight loss, I believe that eating the right way, and maintaining a proper diet framework, will help you stay healthy and keep your weight lower too.


Choose the right meal plan in order to lose weight

Routine and rhythm

The first thing that you have to consider is routine and rhythm. You might be following intermittent fasting and finding that it is causing you stress. You might be going the opposite route and eating every couple

Germany’s word of the year is ‘corona pandemic’

BERLIN — Germany’s word of the year is — what else? — “corona pandemic.”

The Association for the German Language announced Monday that a jury chose “Corona-Pandemie” for this year’s honor. The group said that it “names THE dominant issue of almost the entire year.”

The runners-up were “Lockdown” and “Verschwoerungserzaehlung,” or “conspiracy story.” “Black Lives Matter” took fourth place.

Previous winners include “postfaktisch,” a reference to the rise of “post-truth” politics, in 2016; and “Heisszeit,” a play on the words for “hot” and “ice age,” to reflect concern over climate change in 2018.

Germany has recorded more than 1 million infections of the coronavirus since the pandemic began and is now in a second partial shutdown, but has been credited with handling the disease better than some other European countries.

The Latest: Emperor’s New Year Greeting Cancelled in Japan | Nevada News

TOKYO — Japanese Emperor Naruhito and his family will not offer their New Year greetings from the palace balcony due to concerns over the country’s struggles with a resurgence of coronavirus infections.

The Imperial Household Agency said in a statement Friday that the annual greetings on Jan. 2 will not be held. The event traditionally draws tens of thousands of well-wishers to the palace garden. The greeting was last canceled in 1990 following the death of Naruhito’s grandfather.
