WHEN YOU CHANGE YOUR APPROACH!”

Diet Pills,

               Liquids Fasts,

                                   Weird Food Combinations,

 Do Any of These Things Really Work?

 

A Sneak Peek Excerpt From Get Up & Groove! Step Into Greatness! Perform!

 

The Carla Flagg Story (in her own words)

I knew Deep down inside I really wanted to be healthy and thinner, but for many years I didn’t have a clear vision or a plan on how to achieve it. So I tried dieting, and for me it was just about every diet in the book, along with diet pills, liquids fasts, weird food combinations; anything I thought would get the weight off quickly. But guess what? None of it worked. I realize now they were only temporary quick fixes that usually ended with me doing the same old song and dance: gaining all the weight back, plus some which would leave me to feel angry and depressed. Sound familiar, anyone? I as well began to focus all my attention on my body image and what number I was on the scale. Now I know these things were totally the wrong approach.

What’s the right approach? Read On: http://www.amazon.com/Get-Up-Groove-Greatness-Perform-ebook/dp/B00KT7IVH8/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1404082356&sr=1-1&keywords=get+up+and+groove

Will You Be Next?

Pass The OBESITY Please!

A recent article in USA Magazine printed some startling statistics. It said that by the year 2030 half, yes half, of the American population will be OBESE. Here’s another big shocker. It says these numbers will encompass, and affect, nearly every state in America. Wait! I’m not done yet.

Did you know we spend 150 to 200 billion, YES FOLKS BILLIONS, a year on obesity related medical treatments like heart disease, high blood pressure, heart attacks, and strokes etc? DOESN’T THAT SOUND INSANE?

But I’m sure you didn’t know that either, did you? How ever, now you do. So here’s my question. What are you going to do about it?

Will You Get Served?

Will you be another statistic and fall into this trap?

Or will you rise up and meet the challenge? If your answer is” Yes,” I’m here to show you how!

Let’s Get To Work!

More soon!

Joey L. Dowdy’s “EAT THIS!”

What should I eat for weight loss? What should I eat for my health? These are two frequent yet important questions people ask me all the time.

Let’s face it, there’s a truck load of information about these topics that seem to change every time we look around. Sure, there’s some really good stuff out there. Some things make good sense and others, well, you know, just seem too darn confusing. For instance most people know why we should eat, it fuels our bodies. However, who has a clue what new diet pill or liquid weight reducing shake to take? Or if any of those things really work? Which I think is doubtful. Okay, I’ll be a bit blunter.

I would personally go as far as to say; now here’s one for the record, “I know diets don’t work.” Why? It’s because if they did, everyone who ever went on one would be skinny. Hey, I thought that one would make you smile! It’s fun to have a truthful sense of humor.

However, don’t you want to know what does work? Well, it’s eating the right foods and often enough. Got it? Good!!!

Okay, now let’s get back to what should I eat? I agree information about healthy eating changes rapidly, and it can be a bit overwhelming trying to keep up with the changes. Yet I believe there is one true fact that never changes. What is it? It’s simplicity.In fact, it’s what I live by and I always suggest to other people who want to make any kind of a life style change. I advise them to just keep it simply.

Here’s why! When you attempt to change things too quickly, it can often be too drastic and overwhelming. Therefore you become influenced with trying to do too much too soon. Which we know never works. Then you’ll end up like most people, frustrated with making little to no progress at all. So, the key is to take it slowly and move one step at time.

What Should You Eat? Eating regimes are truly individual and should be base on foods you enjoy. But before you start your eating plan it’s important to first identify three key elements about food & eating.Here are the three elements. Why You Should Eat! When Should You Eat!& How Much You Should Eat!

Why You Should Eat? Eat when you are hungry and your body needs fuel. Don’t eat simply because you’re bored, stressed, or lonely. Note: Although sometimes it may feel like the taste of a good moist jelly donut or a hot mocha latte’ is your best friend after experiencing the heaviness of a stressful day or trying situation. However, do resist the temptation; “Your Waistline Will Thank You.”

When Should You Eat?
 It’s imperative you start your day with a big breakfast rather than skipping it, and then resorting to eating a big dinner later. Why? Eating a good balanced breakfast gives you energy and rejuvenates your metabolism as well it stimulates your brain. It will get you going after a long night without food by providing your body with the nutrients it needs.
Food For Thought:
It’s like having a Mercedes in your driveway you can polish it up all you want, but if you don’t put any gas in it you’re not going anywhere. Note: Many surveys show that those who usually eat a good nutritious breakfast tend to be slimmer and or weight less than those who don’t.….

How Much Should You Eat!

 It’s important to know there is always an appropriate portion size for anything you eat. It’s good to know your portion sizes then heed to what’s best without over doing. Therefore you should always know that eating smaller portions is the correct way to go.

*Try instead of skipping meals to eat some thing every four to five hours. It’ll keep your metabolism regulated and you’ll less likely feel the urge to binge or overeat later on. Especially if you are among those who tend to not eat all day. That’s why doing this and making it a practice is one of the best ways to not starve (which slows down your metabolism) your body. However, it’ll instead keep you energized and satisfied.

Now here’s,

What Should I Eat? Basic Plan 101 ….

Eat These:

     * Whole grains: oats, whole wheat/grain breads, beans, legumes etc. Fresh fruits: berries, pears, plums, apples, oranges, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries apples etc. ….

  • Vegetables: Go green! Dark green vegetables (particularly provide you with more nutrients that produce power antioxidants) greens, broccoli, spinach, sweet potatoes, beans, zucchini, peppers ect.)….
  • Take a Multi vitamin for balance nutritional needs.
Protein: lean meats (chicken, beef etc.), eggs (in moderation), goat & sheep’s milk product, plain yogurt, preferably organic naturally sweeten etc…..
            Good Fats.
Fish: Mackerel, salmon, trout, herring, sardines, and halibut. Nuts, seeds, and oils, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, avocados and flax seed and cold-pressed unheated oils such as olive oil, canola oil, Sesame seed oil etc. ….
Avoid bad fats like,hydrogenated oils or trans fats, processed meats, corn syrups, saturated fat, sugar, refined carb’s, cakes, candy, pastries, cupcakes, scones, muffins and pies.
·Drink Plenty ofWater
Note: The usual recommendation is about a half gallon a day, or more especially if you are physically active and sweat more. Herbal teas and vegetable juice can count towards your daily intake and stay in the body longer.Caffeinated tea, coffee, alcohol & soda don’t count because they can lead toward dehydrating and nutrient losses. Some foods contain a lot of water; fruit can be 90 to 95 percent water. Vegetables have high content. Cooked whole grain can hold some water as well.….

Joey L. Dowdy’s “Fall For Fitness Plan”

Posted in Aerobic, Be Fabulous, Dance, fitness, Get fired Up, Get Fit, Groove, inspiration, Look Fierce, motivation, Peace, Physical Activity, Plus Size, Self fulfillment, Self Improvement, Shake Your Booty, Stage, Theatre, Total Health, Uncategorized, Wellness, work out with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2009 by JJgroove01

Hello all, it’s Joey, after a long hot summer, trying my cool Fab 5 Fitness Tips will help you to get back into the Groove and Keep Fashionably Fit For Fall.

1. SET REALISTIC GOALS
It’s not enough to say: “I want to lose weight” and it’s too much to say, “I want to lose twenty pounds in the next two weeks.” It’s hard to achieve a goal, any goal if it’s too open-ended or simply unrealistic. Not only will you be less motivated, but it’s easier to bail out on goals that are too general. Be specific, yet realistic with goal-setting. Losing 1-2 pounds per week is highly do-able and it’s also more likely that you’ll keep the weight off.

Note: Adding in a personal daily affirmation will encourage and remind you just how important it is to keep on track.

AFFIRMATION: Slowly but surely is DEFINITELY the right way to go!

2. CREATE A FUN FITNESS PLAN
Create a workout that you will enjoy. Variety is the spice of life and a varied plan will motivate you to stick with it. Make sure your plan consists of a range of exercises – some that are easy to do as well as more challenging ones. There are three keys to a balanced exercise plan:
Cardio (Dance, Walking, Swimming, Tennis etc.)
Stretching (Exotic Tone, Yoga, Pilates)
Strength Training (Stretch bands, weights, exotic tone)

AFFIRMATION: My personal exercise plan is so much fun. It gives me energy. Makes me feel fit and sexy! It is a daily enjoyment!

3. RESIST THE “ALL OR NOTHING” APPROACH
If you missed your workout today or splurged on your Great Aunt’s Ultimate Brownies, don’t give up. Everyone has hits and misses because no one is perfect! Always be kind to yourself. Tomorrow is another day. And remember, even a little exercise is better than none.
AFFIRMATION: Less can sometimes be more! Rejuvenation comes in all forms.

4. A SHORT WORKOUT IS BETTER THAN NONE AT ALL!
Health officials recommend we workout for 30-60 minutes 6 days a week – WOW! I know what you’re thinking! “Not a chance! Not with my busy schedule!” But don’t give up hope, there’s good news! Short workouts can still be quite effective. 10, 15, or 20 minute increments during the day can really make a world of difference when you stay focused and committed to a plan.
AFFIRMATION: Doing something rather than nothing makes me feel accomplished. It always leaves me feeling better about myself.

5. START YOUR DAY OFF RIGHT – EAT BREAKFAST!
Even mom said it till she was out of breath. But it’s true! Start your day off right and you’re more likely to end it right. If you starve yourself until lunch, you’re more likely to gorge down more than you need. And just getting to lunchtime without that nutritional boost in the morning can be tough! Eating a well-balanced diet gives you more lasting energy. Now try theses,
Breakfast Smarts:
• Whole grains: (fiber) oatmeal, bran muffins, wheat toast or cereal
• Protein: low fat yogurt, egg whites, nuts, or protein shakes
• Fruits: Apples, oranges, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, juice

AFFIRMATION: Eating nutritionally is always the better choice it makes me feel more energized, aware, and motivated, like I’m ready for life!
