Joey L. Dowdy’s “SPEAK OUT!”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 23, 2012 by JJgroove01
No Abuse is Good ABUSE!
Are you being mistreated or abused? Well if so, know that you can stop it right if you do this.
SPEAK OUT! Please believe there are people who care. Here’s a fact, no one will ever know what you’re going through if you don’t speak out. Here’s why. There is always someone, somewhere, who’s willing to lean an ear to hear what it is you have to say. Why? One reason is “Many people are going through the same thing themselves, but it’s being kept silent.”
 
Tell Your Story!
What you may not realize is when you tell your story it has the power to change the situation. Actually, it has the power to change your life as well as the life of someone else. Know that once you step up to tell your story, It Will Set You Free!”
Meaning, this is what actives the process in which loosen the shackles and chains that once had you bound. Using your voice lets the universe know you’re ready to take a stand. And what happens when you take a stand? “Everything Else Around You Stands Up.”
It’s simply because you, your health, well-being, and your life matters. And so will the lives of many others who will hear your story realize, “their lives matter too.” It will indeed give them permission to find their own voice; instilled with a little hope, encouragement, and the power to Stand Strong themselves. It’s true when you take action to speak out, and get help, you can go from being a victim to someone who has the victory.
*You Can Turn Your Pain Into Power If You Act Accordingly.
Here Are Four Things You Should Do.
1. Know that there is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about; being abused is no fault of your own, it is not something you caused.
2. Don’t worry what others may think about you. You only get one life, so know it’s worth living in peace and total fulfillment. So, “Live Your Life.” 3. Seek support, get help. Speak out to a loved one or a close friend. 4. Move to action because as soon as you start to help yourself, others will help you.
Speak Out & Stand UP!

<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.
