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 My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d

Vinegar to Remove Sticker Residue

My first vinegar cleaning test involved removing an old sticker and the residue that was on the bottom of a very old glass pitcher. I've had the pitcher in my possession for about 5 years and have no idea the full age of this pitcher. So, it seemed like a good item to try the sticker/residue removal test. In my head, the sticky residue is a germ catcher not to mention a plain old eye sore, so I actually try to get rid of that residue as soon as I remove any sticker myself. The idea is to remove goo from stickers, bumper stickers, labels, decals, etc. by repeatedly wiping with vinegar. So, first, I sprayed vinegar onto the sticker/residue section of the pitcher. I let it sit for about 5 minutes then scrubbed the section with a paper towel and my nail. The sticker part came off rather easily with some umph. I sprayed more vinegar onto the residue that remained and let it stand for another 5 minutes. With a hard push with my nail over the paper towel, most of the residue came off. So
