Joey L. Dowdy’s “Sexy Is,”?

Hey guys, lately there’s been so much talk about what makes a person sexy. Should you believe all the hype? Let’s face it; we live in a visual world that is highly controlled by major media outlets like, reality television, music videos, magazines, newspapers, and fashion designers. They all have a huge influence on nearly every aspect of our lives, everything from what we eat, wear, where we live, who we should or shouldn’t date, and what our bodies should or shouldn’t look like.

Yet today the million dollar question still remains, “What is Sexy; is it truly in eye of the bolder, or is it in the hands of the money makers? Can we honestly make unfiltered individual choices about what sexy is and what it really means?

Many media outlet say it’s all about image and having the perfect package. Their emphasis and primary focus usually caters to what’s current, young, and hot! So I ask do we no longer need to be able to think for ourselves. Or have our media outlets taken complete control over what we think sexy should be.

Well, maybe this is a question you might have to decide for yourself. However, here’s a list that I’ve composed of what some adults are saying, “What they think is Sexy.” The results just might surprise you.

Yet the big question here is how many of their answers are similar to your own, and if not, will they rub off? Will it make you think about your own life, or will you just go with the flow and let society/media dictate what it means to you. How can you Develop Your Own Sexiness?

What is Sexy?

Sexy is natural, being yourself.
Sexy is having a nice swagger/walk.
Stronger enough for man but made for a woman.

Sexy is working with what you have.
Sex is an independent woman or man.
Sexy is confidence; having a good attitude.
Sexy is dressing well.
Sexy is a stimulation conversation.

Sexy is flirtatious & fun
Sexy is fore play.
Sexy is sweet and submissive.

Now, What’s Your Definition? Please share!

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

Posted in Be Fabulous, Dance, Get Fit, Groove, inspiration, Look Fierce, motivation, Physical Activity, Self fulfillment, Self Improvement, Total Health, Uncategorized, Wellness, work out with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 11, 2009 by JJgroove01

<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.

Joey L. Dowdy’s Domestic Violence-Provocative Video “Awakens Your Awareness.”

Posted in Dance, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 23, 2009 by JJgroove01

 Hello all,  I’m Joey L. Dowdy Los Angeles based Creator, Choreographer, Instructor, Host and CEO of World Dance Groove Fitness Entertainment. I am pleased to share with you my new provocative you tube “world dance groove 1” double feature video presentation entitled, “Contemporary Dance Domestic Violence -No Tolerance” Part 1 & 2. This first video entitled, “Movement is Medicine That Heals” conveys an array of movement.  It’s more like a dramatic potpourri, a mixture of contemporary dance combined with elements of fierce emotion, break through messages, and textual visualization all wrapped up together.

 It’s my most personal work yet because I too was a victim of domestic violence, I was molested as a child, and I grew up watching my mother struggle with being a battered wife. So putting together these videos have actually been a form of “Movement Therapy”, and a creative expressive outlet for me as well. It has helped me to resurface feelings and emotions that I kept silent for so many years.

“Rage & Rise”, soon to be released, is the second video and it’s solely dedicated to my mother’s domestic abuse conquering struggle for survival.

 You see, these videos are important because they’re dance/movement based adaptations of situations that dig deep inside to reveal the physical and emotional (the good, bad & ugly) side that words sometime can’t express. I feel so blessed that I am able to dedicate this work, and use my life experiences and choreographic skills, in helping to “Break The Silence” by speaking out which is what makes the difference.

 Come on, Give It Up! I get a feeling there are many reading this blog right now who either know some one ,or you are personally facing the same challenge. You may even feel that you don’t know what to do, like most, and or afraid to say something. 

Well, Check This Out!

 Statistics say,

“Every Nine Seconds a Woman is Beaten.

 Silence is Agreement and Participation.

 You Are Equally as Responsible If You Know Someone Who’s Being Abuse and You Don’t Fess Up.

 Nothing A Person Does or Says Justifies Them Being Abused.”

                       You Can Stop It!
