Dance Exercise to Burn Calories

Dancing is a fun way to burn excess calories - and to maybe even shed unwanted weight and inches. Again, some professionally guided cardio dance moves may require your doctor's approval. So, check with your physician before starting any dance or exercise routine

The first video I have selected below is for seniors; however, I got winded following along with her, and I'm pretty active myself. This coach from Silver Sneakers is one healthy senior! Once again, some of the moves may be too awkward for you as they were for me, so just keep moving and clap your hands or snap your fingers if that happens. 

I've also included a sit and dance video from Coach Alexis. So, if your balance isn't the best, but you're determined to move, this will be a good one for you with your doctor's blessings of course. And just because you're sitting doesn't mean it's easy! Ms. Alexis knows the right moves to make this challenging, bring on the heat, and maybe even some perspiration. Just follow along the best you can. 

Whichever way is easier for you, trust me, you're going to get a good workout that will make you feel good about yourself, reduce anxiety, and promote healthy thoughts. But more than anything, have fun! Use these new moves when you're listening to your favorite music. 

For inspiration, I encourage you to keep practicing until you're able to finish these dance routines and get every move perfect. Then find a new video to learn some new moves from.

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
