A look at the strong #core #Abs on #RitaOra

IMG_20200809_114212

It is no news that singer Rita Ora has this naturally constructed abs that may or may not require a very simple work out before it shows itself off. Rita is known to have this flat chiseled core that she loves to obviously show off whenever they are popping (who wouldn’t?).

So today Sunday, I am taking time off to show you guys what the Abs look like these days. With all the Covid19 lockdown, she is still finding time to work it out because they are popping per usual, and that mid line is getting even deeper.. #stronggirls

#Americaferrera shares her 1st Trimester #workout challenges

americaferrera-1580644718912

from @americaferrera Soooooooo hard to workout through the nausea & exhaustion of my first trimester!!! I would walk into the gym and nap for 10 minutes on the massage table before I started. Some weeks I’d only muster 1 workout or I’d miss the week entirely, but I refused to feel like I had failed.

Through this pregnancy I’m equally committed to feeling strong AND being kind to myself. As you start your 2020 workout resolutions, be kind to yourself.

Celebrate your intentions and meet yourself where you’re at with compassion for everything you’re asking of yourself. Go get it! Thanks @grantrobertsfit for letting me nap between sets. #firsttrimester – #regrann

thekenyamoore-1579887149550

Babies are so adorable. They bring in the blessing, the love, the light, the strength to keep that hustle going and the bag coming. Most people who don’t want them will only look at what they will cost you, but what about the good side of them?

With her first born coming in at 47, Kenya is revealing that she is just now finding out that she needs her child more than her child needs her. so a sweet thing to hear from someone who never thought they needed something only to find out that the baby is her whole life.

Reposted from @thekenyamoore Happy Birthday to Me! Whew this has been quite a year! Despite the turmoil there has been a constant positive force of love and light in my life.


God brought this Angel into my world who is the miracle known as Brooklyn and everyday is my birthday. How did she get here? Why did she choose me? She knew I needed her far more than she needed me.
You are my life Brooklyn, my happiness, my joy, and the unconditional love I waited my whole life for. You have my grandmother’s spirit. She left me so I could have you.


I live my whole life for you. You are everything that is good in me and you inspire me to be better everyday. You are my legacy.

My only birthday wish is may God continue to cover you and bless you forever and always.
I pray for these things Jehovah in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen. ❤️👶🏽 #miraclebaby #babybrooklyn #unconditionallove

Fans perplexed by #Adele ‘s #Sirtfood diet result

pamperpages-1578778584246

What do you know about the sirtfood diet that Adele and made very famous. She has lost so much weight, and we are not at all in a haste to end this sight we all love.

while some have expressed their dissatisfaction, stating that they love their Adele on the big side, and that a skinny Adele will need some getting use to. She decided after her divorce filing last September to go healthy and clean right up.

Reposted from @nude_nutritionist – Oh, the Sirtfood diet is the latest celebrity fad diet trend… I went on @channel9’s @thetodayshow to provide the low down on this diet! Check out the link in my profile if you want to watch the full video (available in Australia only – sorry!) If you can’t watch the video, here are my thoughts. Diets don’t work! Especially not calorie counting. Best thing to do is just focus on eating plenty of healthy plant foods instead of drinking weird smoothies/juices and eating foods you don’t like. When it comes to healthy eating, it’s all about enjoyment…. You MUST enjoy everything you eat otherwise you’ll get bored really quickly. When you ask yourself the question, “Can I do this for the rest of my life?” you should be able to respond “YES!!!” – #regrann

Breaking: #Channingtatum and #Jessiej end their year old relationship

usweekly-1576819699686

Just weeks after channing’s Ex wife Jenna Lee Dewan (About) revealed that she hadn’t the slightest idea that her then soon to be estranged husband Channing Tatum, was seeing someone at that time, let alone it being a celebrity like Jessie J. The couple have a daughter Everly Tatum together. With their marriage ending in 2018 Jenna revealed she was kept in the dark the whole time the low key relationship started it’s foundation. With both couples 39 years old, they are said to have moved on with their lives after the break.

jessie j

Fast forward to this December 2019, and the news has now broke that Channing and Jessie have equally gone their desperate ways. The former wife of the actor had made it known that she was surprised at how fast he moved on to the very next available lady, or how much time it didn’t take him to get over her.

Channing Tatum and his Ex wife Jenna

Being in love and not caring what people are saying about them especially the signs that they started it from a special place of affection. A certain trait of character is likely to be overlooked when you love someone. You just look at it and hope that it is one of those things that might be there, but won’t be much of a problem in the long run it the relationship.

Over a month ago, it was said that the two had been making plans to move in together. Now nothing reveals two people as fast as moving in the other. They went from being completely in love, to being unbearable to each other, and moving out was the only option they had.

Meanwhile Jessie J is having a good time of her life after 😉 the break

Now that it has been confirmed that there won’t be any more showing of their lovey dovey due to their breakup especially the part where Channing is naked in the shower, and Jessie shared the photo with the world, then we have to make do with what they have generously offered us for now. we will miss them both being together even though we didn’t see much of it anyway. It was low key until it ended.

Sherrie Shepherd takes fans through her weight loss journey

-1566654439035

Credit to from @sherrieshepherd – I was overweight, always feeling a brain fog, took me hours to find things to wear that would cover what I didn’t want you to see, breathing hard when I walked up the stairs, type II diabetic, addicted to sugar, cheesecake, doughnuts, Popeye’s Chicken, McDonalds… and tired all the time. I was on the certain path to a stroke, heart attack and early death (my mom died at 41 of diabetic complications) It was only when I decided to put on my big girl panties and take control of my health by kicking sugar out of my life that things changed for me. It was a hard journey letting go of something that gave me so much comfort but left me feeling shame, guilt, a failure & depressed. I was too sleepy to get out to do standup but when I kicked the sugar to the curb and started eating to live the fog left my brain. I had so much energy. My creative juices started to flow and I was on the comedy club stages EIGHT times a week and three-four clubs on the weekend. God’s voice was so much clearer (he sounds like Barry White🙏🏾) and blessings in every area of my life started to flow. Opportunities that had previously eluded me presented themselves out of the blue – I booked my first dramatic lead in a major film. I had a game show, and a Netflix Comedy at the same time. Got to fulfill a dream of hosting @wendyshow & ran around a beach in Anguilla in a swimsuit photoshoot w @ashleygraham. It’s not easy staying away from sugar but I love my life and don’t want to ever go back to this girl in the first pic who was sleeping her way to an early death… just want to encourage those who may be fearful of letting go… on the other side of the fear there are so many blessings. Love you!♥️. #sugarfree since 3/18 … size 16-18 pants to a size 6-8… size 18 dress to a 12… 47” waist to a 35”… 187lbs to 151lbs (now up to 161) #sherrishepherd #teamhealthy #iwanttolive #feelinggood

(18+): The Reason why Nigerian women assume their belly is part of their private part.

images

According to the definition of a private part, it is the body part that is meant to be kept from the eyes of the public. This is the as a result of Adam and Eve’s hunger or cravings for the forbidden fruit, which they accrued to be the result of the snakes convincing power(Talk about not taking the blame for your actions). The fact that we all go about our daily lives with a piece or two and some itty bitty under garment, is very comforting to my wellbeing. I have been opportune do to see some humans naked, and believe me when I say, not being naked is the best option for us.

My sister and I, believe that nakedness is not as cute as you would expect, until you are a gym rat. Now what are the actual body parts that should be considered private. This question might have similarities and differences, based on your country of residence. I am going to give the reason for my conclusion.

The actual nakedness as we known it, is always the sexual organs. While some believe that you are to only cover the exact spot of the sexual organ, others believe you are suppos to include the body parts that are close to the sexual organ. For example, in the U.S or first world Countries, , most Youths have a different idea of covering their nakedness. The young and popping ENGLISH girls and boys, will tell you that they can only cover up the vagina, the anus, and the nipple. But Even while they cover these, we mostly get to clearly see them through a light clothing. Which to them, is being covered, so you are basically allowed to see the buttock, the entire breast just without the nipple, the thighs, and every other thing.  In that same country, the conservative elderly, will yell at their child for wearing a really short shirt, a really short shorts that lets their butty hang, and a clothe that reveals the belly. This same country has the people called the Amish, that will not have you show your ankles, upper arms, or even you collar bone, and some others live in a community where everyone walks around naked (The nudists). All this cultures can be found right there in one country. The melting pot called America, has people from all over the world living there, and in with their own cultures, and some others formed in the country.

In the Muslim world, a woman is not suppose to show anythin at all, not her face (for the sake of not taken away by another man), not her ankles, not even their hair.

Now, in Nigeria, the majority of the South, believe in covering the body parts that are close to the actual sexual organ. In fact, they involve the belly in Nigeria. For no reason , the Nigerian mother is considered inappropriate when she allows her daughter dresses in a form that reveals her belly. The belly is not a private part. This is the part that carries the baby, it is not the a sexual organ it self. Most women who have given birth, will rather just hide their belly and its fat so well from the public, because she doesn’t want anyone looking at it. The Nigeria mother who exercises, will freely let anyone see her belly from time to time, even without giving it any thought, but the ones who never exercise, will mentally conclude on their own, that the belly is now part of their private part.

So, the reason why Nigerian women decide that their belly is part of their private part, is because of the fact that is accumulated their. They don’t like it, and they don’t know how to get ride of it, so they just hide it. But for the women who know how to get rid of it, they hit the gym, workout the fat, and get relief. Hiding your tummy is fat clothing, is a big burden. But for a person who has done it for so long, it becomes a way of life, sort of a habit, until He/she get rid of it, and then they have something to compare it to, and they realize how reliving it actually is to have a normal stomach. It is so lay a wife who has seen the light, that will call her child and husband to it. If a woman doesn’t know hat to do about her big tummy, she can’t teach her husband how to get rid of his, or how her kids can get rid of theirs. This simply means that there isn’t any age limit for the people who go to the gym. An elderly grandma and grandpa can go to the gym to outlive their peers. A pregnant woman can go to the gym, and have the instructor tell you what to do. A husband and wife can have a gym date. It doesn’t have to be food all the time, you can work out togther and have fun with it. You belly us not a curse, it is a blessing. It is growing big, because of the things you have eaten. It is never permanent, it is just your mind telling you not to do something about it. Find a gym today, and sweat out the wahala. God Bless the Women of Nigeria.

The psychology of Exercise on humans and their stress level.

image

Taken from a Masters in social pychology book, I will give you readers, the most clearly explained effect of exercise to the human mind.p and body.  Taken from the ‘Health and psychology chapter’, I will let you just read for yourself, the content of the subtitle that was titled :

EXERCISE.

If we think about how stress prepares our body for movement and action, there is an intuitive logic to moving and using the energy that has been  mobilized as a way of calming the stress response. This turns out to be true, and physical exercise is an excellent method for managing stress.

People who exercise regularly show greater feelings of self-efficacy, more energy , and they tend to be more extroverted and sociable. These types of correlation could work in the other direction(self-efficacy and energy cause you to exercise) but we can experimentally have people exercise and then see these effects occur. Physical exercise seems to improve psychology well-being, and just 10 minutes of aerobic exercise has been demonstrated to improve mood. Regular exercise reduces the risk of many chronic illnesses and has been used as an effective intervention for a number of mental illnesses including depression and anxiety disorders.

Exercise has been known to increase neurogenesis, the creation of new neurons, in the hippocampus. You may be familiar with “runner’s high”, which refers to the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, following a bout exercise. These endorphins (as well as enkephalins) boost mood, relieve pain , and improve quality of sleep.

Ironically, while exercise is an effective strategy for relieving stress, stress can become a barrier which prevents people from exercising. Feeling that they have too much work and too little time, people may fail to get adequate exercise, even though it would help to reduce their overall stress level (and improve their health). Exercise can be a way of exerting control and feeling a greater sense of self-efficacy, though it’s important to note that this only refers to voluntary exercise. Rats given the opportunity to engage in exercise by running on a wheel show reductions in glucocorcoids levels, but those forced to exercise (for the same amount of time) show increase in their glucocorcoids levels.

As with perceived control, it might be possible to have too much of a good thing. While moderate exercise is associated with increased testosterone in males, those who run more than 40 miles a week actually show higher glucocorcoids levels and lower reproductive function (decreased testosterone production and smaller testes). Females who engage in excessive exercise also show reduction in reproduction function, including delayed onset of puberty and amenorrhea ( cassation of menstrauation). Over exercise can also leads o decreased bone density in both males and females (probably caused y the elevated glucocorcoids levels).

Moderate exercise may engage multiple aspects of stress management, providing people with a sense of control over their lives and their health. Exercise can also provide a source of social  engagement  and group cohesion, whether the form of an organized team or just a jogging partner . Sofia support is another component of stress management , and this means that exercising with a firmed may allow you to fight stress on to fronts.

I don’t think I would have said this any better than the author of his time book that I have found myself to be insessed with. It looks at every aspect of the humsna life,  but I am only letting you guys read the “Execise” part, which is the most important to me, because this author said it more than I would have ever done.
