I was lacking confidence, and I told Joe, ‘If you’re not sure she can get the last quarter, get off and run yourself.’ He didn’t have to.”NOTES: Winning owner Ben Keswick lists his residence as Central Hong Kong. -30- JOCKEY QUOTESJOE TALAMO, SPIRIT OF XIAN, WINNER: “We won, so it was definitely a great race! I had a lot of horse today. Coming off that sprint race in her last out, she really showed a lot of speed the whole way today. When she got to the front, she relaxed nicely and all the credit has to go to Mr. Mandella. You don’t see too many fillies going from a six and a half race to winning a mile and eighth turf race in their next out, so really all the credit goes to him. He gave me enough horse to work with today.”FLAVIEN PRAT, ENTRECHAT, THIRD: “We had a good trip. It was the first time at this distance, so it was a little bit tough. I think she needs to get more experience, she was a little bit green, so for her this was a good race.”TRAINER QUOTESlast_img read more

DD Fitness: Five ways to lose weight without dieting

first_imgThe word “dieting.” I hate it as much as I hate using the word ‘weight’ when referring to getting lean and dropping bodyfat.But let’s face it, if I had used any other title for the article, the chances of you clicking on it would have gone waaayyyyyy down. So, sometimes you must bend the rules a bit to get what you want.That is exactly what this article is all about.It’s about 5 ways that you can tweak things in your current nutrition to reduce your calorie intake and help yourself to get leaner, burn more fat and lose more ‘weight’.The tips below aren’t special, they have no magical properties and you won’t have to do anything drastic to see some results. The one thing you will have to do however, is try them. You also will have to try them for longer than a week, let’s be realistic here, I’m not giving a diet, I’m showing you how you can implement some small steps so you can see some success, while still eating the same foods you already eat.Let’s get to it;1. DRINK WATER. Yeah, everyone knows that you probably should drink more water throughout the day, (you really should), but that’s not what this is about.It’s about where you will be drinking the water that will help.Right before each meal, drink half a pint to a full pint of water.The water will fill your stomach and make it harder to over eat at that meal.Do this at each meal and you will save some calories from this simple fix.2. USE SMALLER PLATESWe have the tendency to overfill our plates. This wouldn’t be an issue if we didn’t have the tendency to also eat everything that is on the plate.Eating less can be disheartening for some as they feel that they are depriving themselves.By using smaller plates when having your meals, you are eliminating this feeling of depravation by ‘tricking’ yourself into thinking that you are having a full plate of food at every meal. You are, but you are eating smaller portions by default. 3. Increase your Protein and Vegetables.Protein is very hard to overeat, by increasing this you will under-eat on the more calorie dense foods.Increasing your vegetables at each meal will do the same thing.Vegetables are lower in calories than starchy carbs so you can over-eat on vegetables and not worry about going over on your calories.4. EAT THESE FIRSTLike the water, eating your protein rich foods and your vegetables 1st at each meal will also prevent you from going over on your calories at each meal.You don’t have to change anything, just eat these along with the water and you will find that you are less able to over eat on anything else at that meal. 5. SWITCH YOUR DRINKS. You could be taking in excess calories through your fluids without even realising that you are doing it.A simple fix to this is to swap your current drinks for the lower calories options or calorie free options.Switch your milk to semi skimmed or fat free.Switch sugary drinks to their calorie free counterparts.Switch the sugar you add to tea and coffee to calorie free sweeteners.Switch flavoured coffees to regular americanos.If you struggle with some of the things mentioned above and you find it hard to get motivated to change them, my new Summer Shape Up Challenge is starting on June 24th and there is a €1000 holiday up for grabs as an added incentive to keep you on track.Click the link below to get pre-registered for this fantastic challenge NOW!* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe FitnessDD Fitness: Five ways to lose weight without dieting was last modified: May 31st, 2019 by StephenShare 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)Tags:lossrushe fitnessweightlast_img read more

Limpopo mentor: ‘Share what you have’

first_imgRefiloe Thobejane of Mankweng in Limpopo believes you cannot change the environment around you without love. Give love – make people feel important when doing community work, she says.Refiloe Thobejane is the go-to person in Mankweng, Limpopo if you want help with planning an event or advice on doing community work. (Image supplied)Melissa JavanRefiloe Thobejane is a Play Your Part ambassador who is involved in most youth events in Mankweng, Limpopo, where she is the go-to person when there is planning to be done for events or projects concerning youngsters.The 37-year-old says she mentors many people from various initiatives, and helps to form partnerships between them. As a group, the “motto is to not do things alone. We involve everyone in the community when we are planning or hosting an event,” Thobejane says.Speaking about working in tandem with different organisations, she says: “We found that even though we don’t have the same vision, we still need each other. There is no way you can leave other organisations out.”With this attitude, functions and projects Thobejane helps to organise – such as sports events to fight drug abuse or collecting clothes for primary schools – include “everyone”. “We would collect old school uniforms, wash them and give them away,” she explains.Her historyThobejane has been active in her community since she was young. She was a drum majorette from the age of 10 and years later got involved in aerobics and Latin dancing. “I went on with aerobics at university. I now teach aerobics classes in my community.”A researcher in the Limpopo department of agriculture, she has an honours degree in biochemistry and physiology from the University of Limpopo, as well as a Masters in aquaculture, or fish farming, completed in Australia.Mankweng Youth VoiceMankweng Youth Voice was founded by young people in 2015, says Thobejane. “They invited me to help them. I started as a mentor.” Her skills include helping them define their needs in the community. “I had to shake them up and make them identify the challenges the community is facing daily.“There are so many disadvantages, so we looked at short-term objectives. Some of the challenges include teen pregnancies, children not going to school, and lack of information on HIV,” says Thobejane. “There are even people are not going for ARVs, because of lack of knowledge.”In 2016, they focused on educating people about the issues they had identified. “We found that if you do a programme, but people are not informed, it’s a challenge.”Information workshops included inviting organisations to talk about how to use money. They also introduced computer training programmes and drama workshops.Yonk’Into Social & Academic FoundationThobejane is a board member of Yonk’Into Social & Academic Foundation. “I managed to raise money for the organisation through my Australian networks,” she says.This led to helping Yonk’Into chairperson Perseverance Mojapelo to register at the University of Limpopo.Speaking about Mojapelo, she says. “He realised the importance of community work and that’s why he started the foundation. He wants to break the cycle of poverty.”Besides being a DJ and organising entertainment events such as beauty and dance contests, Mojapelo volunteers to teach matriculants in Mankweng subjects such as physics and mathematics.AdviceAsked for advice she would give to people wanting to start doing community work, Thobejane says: “You never change anything if you don’t give them love. Make them [the people you are working with] feel they are important – make them feel welcome. You cannot change anything if there is no love.”She also advises that people start with what they have. “You have to share what you have with other people. People who do not have love, share love with them; if they don’t have food, share food with them.“Share because you have an advantage. If you see disadvantaged people you reach out your hand.”Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See Using Brand South Africa materiallast_img read more

10 months agoINSIDER: Man Utd boss Solskjaer can be stubborn b*****d

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say INSIDER: Man Utd boss Solskjaer can be stubborn b*****dby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveKristiansund coach Christian Michelsen is delighted for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over his early success at Manchester United.Solskjaer has won the first five games of his time in charge.Michelsen told VG: “For someone who has been in his circle of friends, this is unreal. The whole thing is really surreal. Ole Gunnar has lifted a sinking ship with lots of negativity and whining. What he is experiencing now is great.”This tells me about everything in football if you are good, work hard and have potential. Ole Gunnar has stepped up the path for all of us with Norwegian passports not only once, but twice. He bursts boundaries. “Ole has always been a stubborn b*****d who has set goals that he wants to achieve. You talk about the smiling, kind Ole Gunnar – but the devil: He is also a winner who is not afraid to say so when it is needed. At the same time, he is associated with the good values that Norwegians have. And that’s Ole Gunnar: He is one of the people.” last_img read more
