Short & Sweet Can Be A Real Treat!” If you’re feeling guilty because you missed your workout today, and splurged on your Great Aunt’s Ultimate Brownies, please, don’t beat yourself up. Here’s why. Know that everyone has hits and misses, as no one is perfect! Plus, it’s only human to feel the need to treat yourself every once in a while. However, don’t give up and totally blow off working out all altogether. Remember this: A little exercise is better than none at all. For example: You can take 10 or 15 minutes to walk, jog, run, dance, or to participate in some form of physical activity. Here’s why. Even something “short and sweet” can turn out to be a real treat!

Good Bye Depression; Hello Progression!”

 Millions of Americans face & fight depression on a daily bases only to find themselves running around in circles by having to rely on doctors prescribed medications for their healing and help. However, new research shows that drugs aren’t the only treatment, or in most cases the best treatment, it is actually doing very little for mild or moderate cases of depression.

It’s why many are singing a new tune saying, “Good Bye Depression; Hello Progression!” because there is a new found method working its magic and getting results. What is it?

It’s Physical Exercise. Here’s why. Depression and fear causes’ inactivity, its dormant and main focus is to keep your mind occupied on negativity thoughts like doubt, failure, your short comings, and or insecurities. Yet it is no match against movement a very power force and a total opposite, it awakens, it’s active and alive, refreshing and stimulating; it serves a purpose.

 Researchers at UCLA found seniors who practiced the ancient Chinese exercise discipline of tai chi once a week did better to banish their depression than those on drugs. They shared results ranging from an improved quality of life, better memory, more flexibility, and overall higher energy levels.

 Many celebrities, who also battle depression resort to other disciplines like, stretching, yoga, and danceto help them relax; channel their stress and anxiety problems.

Still there is one more helpful component in the fight against this crisis. It’s a healthy diet, it’s imperative because eating certain foods will help replace the low levels of vitamin b folate found in most cases. And it can be obtained from eating more spinach, peas, navy beans, orange juice, and avocado. Hospital studies show that other elements like Vitamin supplements, vitamin d & fish oil tablets helped improved 69 percent of people’s mood who didn’t respond to~Prozac.

*Oatmeal and whole grain products also provide complex carbohydrates that help stimulate the serotonin, “a feel good mood enhancing substance.”

 So the good news is, many new researches show that exercise is one of the most effective alternatives to replacing Daily Drug usage that ‘s Improving Emotional Health and Boosting Self- Confidence, and soon you’ll hear millions more singing a new tune saying, “Good-Bye Depression; Hello Progression!”

Joey L. Dowdy’s “See Your Belly, See It Flat!

<Firm, Fit & Flat Plan>

What You Can Do Right Now!

Okay! Let’s face it, something’s we know are mind over matter but when  it comes to belly fat it’s a puzzle. In fact, it’s such a puzzling distraction that it generally leaves us wondering, “where does it come from, and how the hell do we get rid of it?”

Fact:
The average adult American gains about a pound per year. It just keeps creeping up on you until one day it seems you can’t slip on that skirt or fasten those pants so easily any more.

Did you know that fat around your middle is the worst for your health, because it raises the risk of heart disease, diabetes and possibly dementia? It’s true and maybe you’ve heard this before, but how do you let Belly Fat sneak up on you?

Here’s a concept. You sit! You sit! And you sit!
You sit sometimes for hours in your car, at the office, at your home computer, and most people favorite place in front of the television. You some times let an entire day escape you with out even attempting to do any exercise. Then you rely on getting through the day and delivering an energetic peak performance based on how many caffeinated beverages and unhealthy snacks you consume for support.

Next, why move when you can work, e-mail, shop, text, push a button, and talk on the phone without so much as standing up (except to walk to the bathroom, kitchen, or car)? Do you see a problem yet? Yes, today’s ever advancing technology is great but it makes us lazy; we simply want everything quickly and at a hands reach that “moving your limbs is becoming obsolete.”

Fact: This is not good because our bodies were designed to be active.

Research says, “Through evolution, we needed muscle and bone because we spend a lot of time walking around. Now we don’t do so much of that, so were defaulting toward having more fat instead of muscle and bone.” However, you can control the size of fat cells by resorting to eating fewer calories, and exercise can alter the decision of cells to end up as fat.” It’s clear that burning calories is critical. So eating nutritionally along with exercise will help you build muscle and train your body to burn hundreds of calories on its own every week — and that’s when you are not even working out.

Imagine burning fat while you sit at your computer or while you sleep! Yes! This all means a trimmer waist and a trimmer you! Yet, it’s going to take a little time and effort each day to achieve your ultimate results. I wrote in my earlier Fall For Fitness Plan blog that, “Even a short work out is better than none at all.” And I might ad, “That a few controlled crunches a day will help keep the bulge away.” However, the secret really is adapting the right “Belly Shrinking Components.” Here’s a few more.

Perk up Your Posture
Getting a flatter tummy starts with your posture; it’s about having a better awareness as much as it is about eating properly/nutritiously or exercising. By perking up your posture you’ll dramatically improve your appearance, look pounds lighter, and you’ll feel more c ccccccccc <Waist Awareness>
Here are 3 simple exercises you can do.

1. Make it a habit of trying not to slouch over (sit up straight) be aware of your posture. It has great benefits, sitting up straight takes press off your spine and it makes you look leaner, longer and stronger.
*Think lifted& long like a dancer.

2. Try this -Sitting up straight pull your abs in towards your belly button hold for a count of eight then release it slowly. Repeat it 8 -10 times or more.
3. Crunches: When you’re doing crunches always think controlled and isolated, never fast and jerky, while working the ads for achieving maximum results.
*Start with 25 reps then work your way up.

Note: Slow cadence lifting is a method in which the exercises are slowed down to an 8-second count on the lifting and lowering.

*Last but not least ask your self this one question several times doing the day, Are My Abs/Belly Pulled In? *Train Your Tummy & It’ll stay in.
