Joey L. Dowdy’s “ Think it & Shrink It

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 13, 2010 by JJgroove01

{ Making the Slim & Trim Connection}

You don’t have to spend another year flipping through all those popular glam magazines drooling over all those beautiful bodies. Sure, there’s nothing wrong with fantasizing about having a set of ripping abs, a tight tosh, along with a nice pair of shapely arms & legs. However, it takes a wee bit more than just looking and wishing for what you see. Honey, you’ve got to Get Up & Groove if you want to “Shape Up & Shrink down What Ya Momma Gave Ya!”

Yes, You Can Chisel away 5,10, 15 or more pounds, it’s very do able, but here’s the problem, most people have the wrong approach. They have been lead to think the secret is spending endless amounts of money on the latest “so called” new and improved commercial products, such as Fat Blasting diet pills, Trendy Treadmills, the all in one Wii-Fit, and the new more targeted positioning ab rollers, butt & thigh master machines etc.

Have you ever noticed that most of the people who usually purchase these products end up getting the same results which is losing a few hundred, or more, dollars and they’re left with little to no outstanding advertised results? In fact, a mass majority of these folks end up back where they were before, or in some cases worse. Why? It’s because they’re overlooking one key component.

Don’t get me wrong, I believe you should make a personal investment in your health and physical well being. However, you should make sure that your hard earn dollars are spent on things that really work and give you lasting results. What missing?

The real truth is that in order to obtain your desired fitness goals you must have “The Right Mind Set.” You can’t change your body until you change the way you think about your body. Go For Positive, Never Negative. You should always think positive about yourself and your body. Did you know that your body is fueled by your thoughts and actions for instance, if you’re constantly saying, “I’m big, I’ve always been a big person, my whole family is big, so I guess I’m destined to always be big.” Well, guess what? If that’s what you’re thinking, “that you will be.” However, this is a mistake that far too many people make.

Instead focus on more flourishing Body Beautiful thoughts by saying, “I accept and appreciate my body right now no matter my size I am; I am thankful for it and its wonderful lively heart beat. Yet, I do see /visualize my self getting slimmer and trimmer by taking it one step at a time.  And I am now totally committed to taking active daily measures towards my desired new look.”

Note: If you’re always over weight in your thoughts and dreams, you’ll always have to fight those thoughts to stay healthy. Negative Thoughts will Only Bring About Negative Results.  And who wants that? So, Be Wise, Think Positive.

Here how!

*Stop Comparing Your Body to Someone Else’s.

*Own your look and your body image right now no matter what it looks like.

*No BODY is perfect there is always room for improvement.

*Change Your Mind Set

{You Can’t Change Your Body Until You Change Your Mind.}

Results:You will become much more aware of your thoughts; you’ll feel better about yourself and start making a positive outlook A Life Style.

*Work towards Your Ideal Body Image?

Describe your ideal body image by writing it out. What Does It Look Like? Describe the parts that you want to improve on, and then your best liked features.

Results:

Writing this out will teach you things about yourself you never realized. You’ll begin to see that by focusing on what you like, as well as those features needing  improvement, how it’ll help you to truly create a realistic image(not a celebrity glam magazine image) that’s all your own. Once you change your thoughts and take physical action toward a healthier life style, you’ll slowly see your body image change as well as the self sabotaging words, ideas, and phrases that once held you back.

Then once you’ve adapted a more positive attitude towards your thoughts and body, you will most likely be encouraged and prepared to start creating a realistic working plan that’ll help your reach your fitness goals. So, let today be the perfect time to start taking steps in the right direction and begin working on the new and improved you. Who is now ready to Think It & Shrink It.

<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.

<Secrets>

 What’s up Groovy People? It’s Joey L. Dowdy, World Dance Groove’s

 I relate eating nutritiously to like learning a hot dance routine.

 A great dance routine has all the right elements that make the experience satisfying and complete. How you might ask?

  It has a beginning (it’s enjoyable), a middle (it’s fulfilling), and an ending (it’s rewarding).  Now, wouldn’t it be fabulous if you could get the same enjoyment by applying the same techniques to your eating? Well, I have good news, You Can!  

 Just like a spicy dance routine your approach and technique for healthy eating can be transforming if you find the right elements that will make healthy eating Enjoyable, Fulfilling, and Rewarding.

 In fact, I can think of one right now that’ll help you jump start the process. However, it’s something you have to do every day.

  Now get this, “It is statistically proven that those who do it are usually thinner than those who don’t.”

This is one element you’ll definitely need, if you desire to be a “Lean Mean Fat Burning Machine.”

 What is it?

You must, “Eat Breakfast.” Why? Here, find out, take a look at my

3 Step “Eat Your Skinny” Breakfast Plan.

 Step 1

 Start Your Day Out- Right with Breakfast.

 * The secret is to make your choices desirable and healthy.

 Reward: If you start you day off right you’ll more be encouraged to end it right.

Step 2

Eating balanced is the key. Variety even with food choices can be your spice of life; make sure you eat foods rich in nutrients; it will see you through a busy morning.

  *Eating a good balanced breakfast gives you the energy to get you going after a long night without food.

Reward: You should wake up excited to feed you body, it deserves it.

Step 3

Make Healthy Choices,

Eat this-

Low-fat or fat-free milk products, whole grains, (oats, waffles, toast, cereal, bran muffins) varied fruits, lean protein (nuts, yogurt, flaxseed, lean meats, eggs whites, etc.)

Reward: These products can help contribute to a Smaller Leaner You!

 -Less of That

AVOID eating foods that are high in saturated, Tran’s fats, added sugars, and or high in cholesterol. Such as donuts, mammoth muffins, croissants, cream cheeses, coffee drinks like mochas, frappuccinos, caramel coffee, etc. These products have more calories which will eventually add to your waist line. 

 Reward:  If I stay on track by making the right moves and proper choices I see how you can literally, “Eat Yourself Skinny!

PAY OFF!

Breakfast food is fuel for your body’s engine; feeding it early on helps keep it energized and revved up,  it starts the daily calorie burning process.

Note: Don’t forget to include a daily fun work out because,” Cardio Does the Body Good.”
