Get ready to be Healthy and Happy…
Visualize and Feel Your Way to a Vivacious Body
The Law of Attraction is a great tool to master, if you haven’t already. It works just like a light switch; when it’s on, your feelings and emotions are luminous, and draw people and positive energy to you like moths to a light. When your light switch is in the “off” position, however, you feel dark and down in the dumps about life and your body, only creating more bad feelings. It’s important to focus, feel, and be positive.
Instead of saying or thinking “I will always be fat” change your thought to “I am now feeling fit, healthy and thin.” Instead of saying or thinking, “I can’t commit to a workout program because I will fail.” Say, “I will dedicate 2 days a week to exercise and will succeed in reaching my realistic goals.” Then focus on the end result picturing the desired outcome.
Paying attention to how you feel in both body and mind may aid you in your journey to the body you want. Have you noticed when you wake up and feel good, good things keep happening throughout your day- hitting all the green lights on your drive to work, people compliment you, having an awesome workout.
Conversely, on days that start out not so good you may get a speeding ticket or find yourself overloaded with work. It’s not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you and how you redirect your thoughts toward the positive end of the spectrum and use visualization to stay on track and propel your success.

Tight Abs Tips
By Fawn Lofton
If your abdominals are in need of a quick pick me up to tighten up for your individual “reveal”, lend an ear and then some strategic effort at these strategies. Perform strength training abdominal exercises at least three times each week.
Your abs are like any other muscle in your body—they need to be consistently challenged in order to become stronger and tighter. The abdominals, due to their size and design can take daily conditioning, due to shortened recover times needed.
End poor food choices. Processed foods, refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup do NOT belong in your diet if, especially if you want tight abs.
The fat stores created by excess sugar, and fat intake most often, accumulate around your waist, covering up your abdominal muscles. Cut these items from your diet and replace them with real whole foods such as lean meats, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and fruits.
Change your lengthy slow cardio workouts. Your body has figured out how to do this and is not “adapting”. Instead, use HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). HIIT training uses intense bursts of cardio peppered throughout your workout. This is a sure-fire way to rev up your metabolism, burn calories, and get your fat stores to shrink.
Use resistance with your abdominal exercises and have a “change mentality”. Crunches are good, but your body quickly becomes accustomed to the motion, rendering it less effective. Hold a medicine ball or dumbbell at your chest as you perform your crunches—this will force your abs to work harder, and you will achieve better results. Change motions frequently and keep your body guessing.
Once it learns how to do it, throw it a curve ball and change it up. Target your lower abs. It’s easy to neglect the lower abs, but they are an important part of the equation.
Gravity and the weight of the volumes in our abdominal cavity pull at the muscle system which tends to distend our lower abdomen. In order to work the lower abs you’ll need to engage your legs in order to get at them more effectively.
As an example incorporate the V-Up into your ab routine: Sit on the edge of an exercise bench; lean back to a 45 degree angle. Extend your legs out until they are level with the floor. Exhale and bring your knees and upper body close together, while contracting your abdominals.
Inhale as you slowly release your legs, returning them to the starting position. ‘Weight Loss, Lose Weight’ products and products that claim to flatten your stomach typically, don’t deliver the goods.
Never waste your time or money on: So-called packaged food products that come with weight loss claims. If it’s processed in a package with a host of chemical additives then it will not help you achieve sustainable flat abs.
If it’ is abdominal exercise gimmicks as sold on infomercials – all you really need is your own body weight, an exercise ball, dumbbells and or a medicine ball. If it’s the so called “magic pill”, the magic pill for flat abs doesn’t exist. Sorry about that.. Many of these miracle pills have a “proprietary blend” in them, and guess what?
You don’t get to know what it is, or what it may do to you long term. Not a good idea to believe in marketers claims for super fast weight/fat loss at the expense of not knowing what it is you are putting in to your body. Good nutrition with resistance training and cardiovascular workouts are the solution.
After a full recovery from colon cancer surgery on February 9 2011, I can attest as living proof that fitness is, in and of itself, a cure all for the majority of illnesses we face either via prevention, or through the accelerated recovery processes being fit brings you.
