'Matteo Walch' Austrian Boy And Marmots By Caters News Agency

AUSTRIA — A nature-loving family says their 8-year-old boy has become friends with some of the Austrian Alps’ shiest creatures. “Matteo loves those animals and they are not at all afraid of him because he has a feeling towards them and they understand that,” the boy’s father, Michaela, said. ‘It’s amazing to watch the connection between a boy and his animal friends.’

Here’s a link to a previously answered question :) I list all my face, lips, body, hair and household product brands! Will add some stuff tho..

Coconut oil is antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal! Studies have shown that coconut oil destroys the bacteria that can cause tooth decay. The other primary ingredient in this toothpaste is baking soda. Baking soda is a very mild abrasive which aids in cleaning and whitening teeth, and restoring pH balance.

Coconut Oil and Baking Soda Toothpaste

Ingredients
2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
2 tablespoons Baking Soda
10 drops of Peppermint oil (optional)
*Can make a larger or smaller batch depending on how long you would like it to last and what size container you’re storing it in.

Instructions
1. Mix baking soda and coconut oil in a small container, until it forms a paste like consistency
2. Add several drops of peppermint oil and mix (*peppermint is optional)

• bi carb soda // toothpaste..
Take a pinch of baking soda and put it into a small glass or small bowl.
Add a small amount of pure water to the bowl and mix it into the baking soda. The solution should be slightly runny as you don’t want too many of the granules present. Dip your toothbrush in to get some of the solution on the brush.

• coconut oil // oil pulling..
I put about 1/2tbsp of oil in my mouth and melt it then “pull” it through my teeth and swishing around my mouth (I only do this for about 3 minutes but recommend is 10-20 minutes, you work your way up to it!)
I gently brush my teeth afterwards and they feel so clean, healthy and my breath is fresh.

• bi carb soda // instead of chemicals a natural dish washing stain remover, makes glass look new, acts as a deodorizer

I have a glass of baking soda and Earths Choice washing liquid by the kitchen sink - that’s all I need!

For my FAQ: How do I start lifting?

First of all, men and women can do the same workouts perfectly fine (if you are worried about getting bulky, read the next question). If you want results from lifting, you should be lifting heavy (=challenging).

Using the machines at the gym can be good enough, especially for beginners, but in the long run you should strive towards learning free-weight, mainly compound movements (deadlifts, squats etc). Remember to learn the correct form before you start adding too much weight. If you need inspiration or instructions for exercises, see above.

If you feel intimidated by the weights room at the gym, read my post How to be more confident in the gym.

For a beginner, it’s best to do a full body workout every time (one exercise for each body part), or a split between lower and upper body.

Rep ranges:

  • 1-5 reps for strength (1-10sets)
  • 8-12 reps for hypertrophy (building muscle) (3-4 sets)
  • 15+ reps for endurance and low-mid intensity cardio (8-12 reps builds endurance just as well)

Use weights you find challenging, while still being able to perform the exercise with proper form.

Remember rest days are as important as workout days, especially when you are starting out, because you will get very sore at first. Tag: ‘Rest’.

Being sore after a workout doesn’t necessarily mean it was a good workout - No pain no gain is a lieTag: ‘DOMS

If you want to gain muscle, you also need to be eating right; adequate protein intake + good fats, carbs for energy, and a calorie surplus.

Bonus tip: Don’t go for workouts in the typical magazines for women only (like this). They are not effective (in 9 out of 10 cases) - you have to challenge yourself.
