Autumn is here, the weather is starting to change and it’s feeling a bit gloomy outside.
I recently started to feel low on energy, especially in the afternoon and that’s a feeling I hate, especially that I’m a fitness enthusiast and I can never let low energy levels to distance me from the gym.
The latest discovery by NHCO, TagviC contains active agents to stimulate the body’s energy metabolism and gives an energizing effect.
TagviC is a dynamic stimulant that combines 10 active ingredients:
L-Glutamine, L-Citrulline and Ginseng to support the body in case of low energy
Vitamin C, B6, and Magnesium to help reduce fatigue
Guarana seeds for energy
For those who suffer from deep fatigue, TagviC is a three weeks program. Take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules at noon during the first week and then maintain with 2 capsules in the morning for the remaining 2 weeks.
I’m only taking 2 capsules in the morning and I already feel a change. I’m feeling vitalized and energized even when not sleeping well.
TagviC promotes energy recharge, helps regain muscle tone and fitness during periods of tiredness.

For those of you who haven’t been following me for a while, I got certified as a Personal Trainer from Inspire Fitness Academy and I’m giving “Abs & Glutes” Workout every Saturday 10h00 a.m. at Healthy Lifestyle in Jal El Dib.
When I saw it up close, the 2017 Infiniti QX70 seemed very wide and long, I thought it was gonna be tough to drive and not easy to handle. When I got in the car, I was a bit scared to tell you the truth since this was my first experience with huge cars, but when I got in the driver’s seat and after driving it for a while, I got really attached to it and had a really thrilling experience!
While going on road-trips, I discovered that although the Infiniti QX70 is a muscular and powerful car, it’s so soft and easy to drive.
The intelligent all wheel drive, remains stable and adjusts for better traction. The 7-speed automatic transmission has a driver adaptive learning algorithm that familiarizes with your driving style and adjusts shifting for responsiveness and efficiency.
And to be more at ease while driving it, the Intelligent Cruise Control helps you look ahead and intuitively slows you down when there’s traffic and then it automatically accelerates back to your desired speed when the way is clear.
A vehicle of such muscular proportions needs large wheels worthy of its stature. The 20-inch alloy wheels not only add a hint of aggressiveness but they also offer superior grip and responsive handling, making carving corners more exhilarating than ever.
The Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection and Front and Rear Sonar takes the effort out of parking. The systems work together to produce a simulated 360° bird’s eye view to give you a better perspective of what’s around you.
In terms of comfort, seating has always been an Infiniti strength, and QX70 has supremely comfortable, supportive seats for both driver and passenger.
And what’s a road-trip without good music! The Bose® Premium Audio System features 11 speakers, including two subwoofers, to deliver music with captivating clarity. Optimized specifically for the interior of the QX70, it lets you create the ideal mood on every journey.
Don’t forget the Infiniti signature sound! The QX70 speaks through its specially tuned exhaust, that shapes that sound into something uniquely compelling and unmistakable.
And whenever I’m going on a road trip, I consult the “Trip Cost” feature in the Total Mobile App for the cost of my track, as it also helps me locate the nearest Total Station, and keeps me updated on the car consumption thanks to “Fuel Consumption” calculator.
I enjoyed a lot driving the Infiniti QX70 whether in the city or in the mountains. I enjoyed a luxurious experience in the driver’s seat. The QX70 has a great feel and gives a sports car-like driving experience!

The Beazbee is a hidden gem in the heart of Hamra and specifically in Gefinor Center.
I always wanted to check out the place, especially after seeing the tasty pictures all over Instagram but it wasn’t happening, until I finally made it last Saturday!
Located on the first floor, I was charmed by the interior. Modern, chic furniture, with very really relaxing colors and I fell in the Love with the teapot <3
First, I had the Beazbee Salad, it’s anything but ordinary, it’s pure freshness in a bowl.
It’s a cup full of greens, avocados, endives, mushrooms, berries, pine nuts and poppy seeds.
Then I had the Grilled Tenderloin
On a bed of beetroot, the black angus beef filet was lying surrounded by steamed baby potatoes, zucchini, carrots and asperger.
The creamy green pepper sauce is mouthwatering and the cooking was just perfect!
And to top the goodness, each Saturday when you eat there, you will be contributing to raise money to buy a marathon racing chair to an incredible athlete Sumi and help her fulfill her dream of racing in the Beirut Marathon.
Shapewear are usually worn under your clothes to shape your body, but sometimes it could be annoying. They kinda show under your tight dress or it gets too tight you can’t seem to breathe…
A while ago, I got the chance to discover the shapewear brand Svelte, that solved this problem. They created shapewear clothing!
They have a form-fitting collection of jeans, leggings, t-shirts, top tanks and shorts to keep you looking and feeling your very best.
The ready to wear line integrates to your body shape with a 4 way stretch spandex panel. All Svelte shapewear products are equipped with a signature, built-in waist panel to accentuate your silhouette .
As with any new activity, there is some level of danger. The same would be true with rock climbing, cycling, running, or even yoga. But it’s very simple to drastically reduce your risk of injury with strength training, since a professional program would balance out your body for optimal strength and power, thereby decreasing your risk of injury in other activities.
What you need to do is:
– Choose a program that’s appropriate for your ability level
– Prepare your body to work out
– Understand correct form
Lifting Heavy Makes Women Bulky
A lot of girls have this mind, that if they lift some weights they’ll become bulky like men.
Let’s set one thing straight, women don’t produce enough testosterone to add significant amounts of muscle mass quickly or easily. Muscle mass takes years and years of hard work to build and many female bodybuilders choose to enhance themselves chemically because they have such a hard time gaining muscle mass.
If you lift weights and eat healthy foods, your muscles will get stronger and denser; you will burn the fat on top of your muscle and you will get that “toned” look that you’re after.
Cardio Burns More Fat
Cardiovascular training absolutely has its place, but it’s not the only path towards fitness.
Believe it or not, strength training will produce a more efficient weight loss effect than an equal amount of cardio.
When you strength train, your muscles are broken down and then rebuilt over the next 24-48 hours. While your body is rebuilding those muscles, it’s recruiting more calories and energy to make the process happen.
What this means is that your metabolism operates at a faster level even while you’re sitting on the couch after a workout.
You Can Sport Reduce Fat
Your body cannot spot reduce fat in specific locations. If you have flabby arms or a big stomach, doing thousands of bicep curls and thousands of crunches won’t help.
Your body is genetically predisposed to storing fat in certain locations in a certain order. When you start to lose weight, your body will lose the fat you currently have in a certain order as well.
No amount of targeted exercise will change how that fat disappears. When you reduce your body fat levels, your body will choose where it wants to lose fat from first.
So no, you can’t technically spot-reduce, but you can use strength training combined with sound nutrition and intelligent cardio to get the lean, toned body you desire!
Now that the myths are debunked, it’s time to consider weight lifting!

March is the month to reflect on the achievements of women and empower each other.
In my post today, I’ll be introducing to you Cristel Taoutel behind KiKi that handles Communication, Media and PR.
1- Can you tell us about your background and why you decided to have your own agency
Since my graduation from Saint Joseph University in Business and Management, I started working in the PR field. I worked with luxury products like Dupont, Delsey, Kipling , Lacoste, Lancel, Longchamp and FMCG products ( While working with Hodal Group) and I worked in the PR Services like five stars hotels and restaurants ( while working in a PR agency) and now I’m working in an Architecture and Consultancy office as Business Development and PR.
I find the public relations field as an extremely attractive profession as it so diverse, dynamic and every day you work on a different thing, which is what I like.
Of course in this field you should be able to work under pressure and multitask, but with the passion to take up new challenges, good listening abilities and a desire to help people, one will adapt and excel in his job.
2- How did you find yourself in the Lebanese market ? And were there any difficulties with the clients?
First of all I want to thank all the opportunities I had in my career and all the companies I worked with, they gave me the chance and the opportunity to grow in this field, they saw my skills and believed in me.
Plus I want to mention here, that I am from a Syrian Origin, my accent is different, but the people here are very friendly and never faced any problem because of it. This is my identity and I’m proud with it.
3- What differentiates you from the other agencies?
What differentiates me from others, is that I can work with all kind of budgets.
I help my clients to promote their products and services in an efficient way.
When I started blogging, Le Blog De Chanty was mainly focusing on beauty, fashion and lifestyle.
But after I realized my passion for Fitness, my content started diverting more into health, fitness, clean eating, healthy living…
Thus the logo needed an update. The colors are still my favorite but the stylish lady with the huge hat isn’t represented a lot in my posts.
I needed a new logo to reflect my current style that is a combination of simplicity and energy.
Grey is a classic, elegant and solid color, reflecting maturity and professionalism. It is helpful for calming and re-setting the emotions.
Yellow is the color of sunshine. It’s associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy.
Yellow produces a warming effect, stimulates mental activity and generates muscle energy. it also indicates honor and loyalty.
I liked the combination of letter mark and hand written. It’s simple and energetic at the same time.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is not really easy, it needs effort and commitment.
You start preparing your own food to keep track of what you’re eating during the day. You keep healthy snacks with you all the time, to make sure you won’t jump to the supermarket and hoover all the chocolate you see.
And yeah snacks options will get minimal; few kinds of fruits, nuts and crackers will be in your list.
I discovered the Quest Protein Bar when I started lifting weights and needed a protein source after my workout.
They have one of the best nutritional profiles of any protein bar on the market, with 20-21g of protein, plenty of fiber without a lot of unnecessary ingredients or extra carbs. All Quest Bars are gluten and soy free, and contain no added sugar.
Most importantly they taste great, now I keep a bar in all my bags and my favorite flavor is Brownies.
For the boring days at home, watching TV and don’t want to ruin your healthy track, the Quest Protein Chips will come handy.
Quest Protein Chips revolutionized snack food, offering a delicious, savory way to #CrunchClean.
With 21 grams of high-quality protein per bag, every bold, mouth-watering flavor has only 5g total carbs and zero junk ingredients. You can eat the whole bag for only 130 calories. My favorite flavor is BBQ!
