What Did I learn? (Health Tips Included)

Does anyone own a scale with never-changing numbers? Numbers that would just remain the same no matter how hard you try….

Today, I stepped on the scale and those numbers changed! Praise God!

I took time this year to focus on health and research about the body, nutrition, fitness, stress, medicine, vitamins and more! I am also enrolled in two health Hope Groups are this spring semester. These group are very effective and available to you if you can find your way to HopeNYC.  One group is taught by an actual physician and the other is taught by a phenomenal woman who has conquered the most challenging weight-loss obstacles. I can share some of what I learned and I hope it can help!

One shot is all you need:  Cardio doesn’t have to be long and painful. It should be short and painful 😀 which is better! Cardio is suppose to prepare your body for the exercise, not be the exercise. Running and walking is great but it can’t sculpt the abs for you. Cardio helps your body to burn while you deal with the real exercises: abs workouts, weight lifting, leg sculpting, squats etc. Developing those muscles can help shrink those areas but you need a shot to start!

The recipe for this shot calls for:

  1. A series of exercises like running in place
  2. Plyo-jacks
  3. Bear crawls
  4. Knee high running
  5. Butt-kick running
  6. SPEED
  7. 30 seconds of each one!

It’s short! But it’s all you need.

Abs don’t just lookgood: Developing abs can save your back! The abs are like the strong front anchor of your spine. When you work on your abs, you help your back muscles tremendously. Back pain gets reduced because your core is helping your back muscles in supporting you. It’s not too late to start your ab workout. The plank is one of the most effective I heard from the doctor.

Your action will influence others around you! You can tell your loved ones to exercise and it will turn them away. Cook tasty healthy meals and desserts, take your walks, eat healthy in a restaurant and photograph everything. Your actions will surely influence someone to try it!

Has carbs lied to you?  We think it will fill us up when eating it all the time can make us hungry. Protein keeps you full for much longer. See which protein-filled foods are your favorites. Reducing carbs will surely give you results.

Motivation is a must! Meeting up as a class each week really helped. Having someone to motivate you is important. Circumstances and problems can stop your progress! Make sure you have a friend, counselor, nutritionist, family member or someone to help motivate you and hear your problems out! Youtube videos can help. Prayer can help tremendously! I believe you can do it.

Woman’s T Party

I was advised to put my tea bag on my eyes to reduce puffiness! The Tea party happened last Sunday at HopeNYC. I know you’re imaging floral dresses, big hats and tea pots but the women’s ministry had quite a different agenda in mind! It wasn’t tea it was T!

T is for

  • Tips! From reducing wrinkles to opening an online jewelry store to recreating your T-Shirt! We went home 🏡 rich in tips that can help make us money, destress & beautify us!
  • TV! With a big TV screen placed on the stage and a panning camera, we saw ourselves! In fact! This event was an exciting Live TV show!
  • Time with Friends! Everyone sat together around the tables enjoying food and all of the segments along with a fashion show.
  • Time for ourselves! It was indeed a getaway from the kids and husband because this was JUST FOR WOMEN 16 to 106 years old! 😃
  • Time with God! This was the best part! It’s truly a miracle to get stress to finally leave a woman’s mind because stress is stubborn carrying many reasons behind it. With a few individuals interceding and praying for us in God’s presence, He removed every bit of that stress! We left the meeting delivered and changed! More than just an enjoyable evening. Only God can do that. An aim for every woman’s meeting is to help make us more stronger each time so we can feel it and be it!
  • Tea there was none.

These 2 people made NYC better! Get to know them!

A quick video to show appreciation to my Pastors; the Senior Pastors of HopeNYC Church! Of course we know that pastors take care of others, lead, preach sermons, pray and do many other fantastic things for the kingdom. The collection of photos in this video highlights more of the spontaneous things they do in addition to the serious. Did you know that HopeNYC had a 60 ft long banana split sundae that ended up in a delicious ice cream fight? Did you know that HopeNYC does a Fall festival and Christmas Parade every year? HopeNYC also sends toys to several caribbean countries each year and helps distributes food to feed New Yorkers every week!

These pastors are amazing gifts from God. They have affected the lives of many people in the HopeNYC congregation and they have made New York a better place! You have to come see them yourselves one day!
