Lose Belly Fat While Sitting

The next video I want to share with you involves exercises to lose belly fat while sitting. What! 😲 I've been doing this one for the past week. Again, we're just trying to get into routines that we can mix up a bit. And we want to have fun. Last week, we started our sit and pedal exercises. Now, we'll work in some easy chair exercises. Soon, we'll work into some better eating habits. The point is, we want to make some FUN lifestyle changes that will make us feel stronger, motivated, and energetic. So, focus on that. We're not doing this to lose weight or inches. But that will likely happen anyway. So, win-win, right! 

Sit and Exercise

In today's video, Coach Natasha is teaching us 5 sitting exercises that will help us lose belly fat. These are 5 exercises we can do in only 5 minutes! Coach Natasha offers longer belly fat-burning sitting workouts in other videos. Again, as mentioned last week,  repeating these exercises up to 2 more times each day will have healthier benefits, and you will get faster results than doing these only 1 time per day. Slowly work up to 3 times a day, of course. And never do any exercise that hurts you. For example, I won't do exercised that hurt my hips. I'm actually reading a book right now called Prisoners Without Bars that is about a healthy man who did one more pullup than he should have. His wife tells the story of the struggles they had when that desire to do "just one more" was too much and their journey back from the brain injury he incurred from pushing himself too hard. I just want us to do something low impact and fun that will help us feel better - not injure or kill us.

As many of you may know, belly fat is what causes health problems such as Type 2 Diabetes. And Type 2 Diabetes has a number of health-related risks in and of itself. Currently, I'm not on any prescription medications - and I'm 58 years old! My plan is to stay off prescription meds for as long as possible. Right now, I'm inching into the waistline crisis, though, so that is where my main focus is. I was telling family and friends only a couple of weeks ago that I'm not ready to sit down and grow old. So, I'm focusing on that aspect of my life. I feel that I still have a lot to offer, and I need to be healthy to do it. And since most of my jobs require so much sitting, I need to nip these health issues before they even happen. I think you should also know that I do get up and walk to one end of the house and back several times a day as well.

I'm choosing these sitting exercises, though, because I think they're easier for everyone to do regardless of age, weight, arthritis, balance risks, mobility issues, or other health problems. And although, we're sitting for these exercises, they can become strenuous. So, always get your doctor's approval before starting these or any other exercise and diet routine. 


Have a healthful day in our Lord, Jesus Christ,

Love Never Fails

 After Saul (Paul) was converted from Judaism, in which he was a trained priest, to Christianity on the road to Damascus, he spent a few years learning how to be a better person for God's new work in Christ. After God prepared him, Paul started preaching the Good News to people in different cities. One of those cities was Corinth in Greece. When Paul needed to correct - or praise - some teachings of the churches that were established in these cities but couldn't get back to them right away, he would write them letters. One of these letters (often called epistles) is called I Corinthians in the Holy Bible.  The message I want to bring to your attention today is what Paul was telling this church about love. He told them in verse 16:14 to, " Do everything with love. " (NLT) The NKJV read as, " Let all that you do be done with love. " What a difference we could make in the world if we could all follow this beautiful advice.  In the same Book of I Corinthians 13:

New Elderly Tips

I have added some elderly tips  to my Senior Care Memoirs website. We all have a senior in our family, such as a parent or grandparent. Or we see elderly people while we're shopping. They deserve to feel respected and independent. So, I have added these new tips as some helpful advice. Watch for posts to be added to the Senior Care Memoirs site more frequently as new stages evolve in my senior family members' lives.  I hope you enjoy these tips and other upcoming posts. Together, we can figure this out. We're going to fill our blank canvas with helpful information. I won't be posting any future updates to the other site here, so you will want to bookmark it if you're interested in reading this type of information. Thanks for stopping by today.
