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!

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.

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u

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

Idahoan Instant Mashed Potatoes

One of my favorite side dishes to make with a meal is mashed potatoes. One day, a couple of months ago when life was very busy, I just happened to notice these Idahoan  brand instant mashed potatoes with 4 servings in a grocery aisle I was going through. They had a variety of flavors, so I bought several pouches. I wondered if the dried potato flakes could be as tasty as the flavors indicated. And yes, they are to my surprise. I am very impressed. On days when I'm running behind, it's 5:00, dinner should already be served, and I'm not going to be able to start dinner for a while yet, AND mashed potatoes are planned for that meal, this will do quite nicely. Fewer dishes are involved, and it's quick. They are pretty thick, but they don't feel heavy while you're eating them. Very creamy actually.  All you need to do is: Boil 2 cups of water. Pour the boiled water into a heat-proof bowl. Pour in the dried potato flakes.  Stir with a fork until you get a thick, mashe
