Now is the time to get started. It’s time to Dust Off Those Dancing Shoe and Get A New Groove.” Who knows? Maybe dance beneficial effects will even help you shed a few pounds before the New Year arrives.”

Why Dance? It’s Freedom, Festive & Fun! And it has so many great benefits. Hate to exercise? Well, once you get carried away by ballet or mesmerized by the meringue, you won’t even notice you’re doing the equivalent of running a ten minute mile. Here How, Four Dance Styles Shape Up!

1. Afro-Latino (Caribbean) It consist of movements with lots crouching, bending of the knees, requires a loose head, arching of the back, and gathering undulating arms movements, often done to live drumming.

It works the thighs (all that squatting), arms, butt, and legs.

Soul Boost
You’ll let go of inhibitions and feel a communal connection with your authentic self, and the entire group.

Caveat ( Be Warned)The aerobic intensity might be discouraging at first, but hang in there you’ll be hooked!

2. Ballet

series of turned-out knee bends (plies), leg and arm extensions, fast foot work, jumps and leaps that emphasize an erect body and flexible straight.

Calories Burned Per HR.

become beautiful sculpted.

Soul Boost
You’ll find yourself standing, sitting and moving with better poster and more grace as your body memorizes the movement.

Caveat ( Be Warned)
There’s no swiveling of the hips or shoulders, so if you’re looking to get down, this may not be your better choice.

3. Hip –Hop
Hip hop provides street wise moves to a funky, syncopated beat, involving isolated upper body and hand moves, punches, kicks, shoulders, rib, and hip gyrations linked together.

Calories Burned Per HR.
445

Great For Toning
The thigh, hips, and butts.

Soul Boost
You’ll leave class feeling energized, powerful, with a new strut in your walk.

4. Latin
A variety of dances including the meringue, salsa, tango, and mambo, with lots of complex footwork and hip rotations, usually done with a partner, but some gyms & dance centers offer latin inspired solo workouts.

Great For Toning
The thighs, upper back, and shoulders, butt, hips.

Soul Boost
You can’t help but tap into your steamy sexy and passion side- It’s Hot, Hot, & Hot!

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.

<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.”

What’s up Groovy People? It’s Joey L. Dowdy, World Dance Groove’s Choreographer/ Host/Instructor and Fitness Motivator.

I’m sure you’ve all heard the phrase,

“I’m so Hungry, I could Eat A Horse.”

What about this popular saying,
I’m Starved; I Haven’t Eaten All Day?

Or, “Yeah I might miss a meal here and there, but that’s okay when I eat I Try to Eat Healthy.”

These are all common phrases that we know all too well.  So, the real question is, can you really make healthy food choices on a growling stomach? Let’s examine this theory.

 Healthy is a 7 letter word that’s often misused, especially when it comes to talking about eating properly. Healthy eating means you should choose foods that give your body the proper nutrients it needs. Those foods should then provide your body with more energy, strength, and lasting durability.

The word healthy as it applies to eating; its true meaning, often gets compromised when deprivation (Starvation) strikes a person.  It creates extreme hunger that makes the urge for food, and getting it quickly the main focus. It then weakens their ability to think clearly when trying to make healthier food choices, and out of desperation they end up reaching for just about anything.

 This is what usually happens when you skip meals, or end up as one might say it, “Starved.”

  * And if your goal is to get a slim body, you’ll never obtain it until you can remember this one thing.

 * Know that the greatest gift you can give, or buy yourself, is a good nutritious meal! Think about it!

It’s one of life’s most enjoyable pleasures!  So Why Deny Yourself?

Eat! Eat Yourself Skinny!

  How? Here’s what you need to know.
Step 1.
   “Skipping Meals Does Nothing Good For Your Body.”

 In fact it, “Slows Down Your Metabolism.” (Your Body’s Engine) Therefore as a result, you will be moving a step further away ( by gaining weight) from your ideal body size and or desired fitness goal.

However, Eating Regularly (Small Healthy Meals Every 4-5 Hrs) will speed up your metabolism ( you’ll lose weight) and you’ll find yourself getting several steps closer to a slimmer trimmer you.

 Note: Plus adding in a little Cardio Each Day will Help You Melt Those Pounds Away.”

 Now, Go Ahead! Eat! Eat Yourself Skinny!
