Feel Full Longer with Protein

protein

Did you know that an early morning dose of protein stimulates the brain to send powerful fullness signals, resulting in more reliable appetite control throughout the day? According to researchers, women who begin their day with a protein-rich mini meal, eat 55 percent fewer calories overall — and weigh at least 15 pounds less — than those who shun protein until the afternoon. The early eaters are also 75 percent less likely to struggle with stress, blue moods and fatigue since eating protein soon after awakening stabilizes blood sugar and dampens cortisol production.

Magnetic Bracelets Help Promote Peaceful Sleep

magnetic bracelet

While my husband wouldn’t admit it, the copper magnetic bracelet I gave him for his birthday last April is helping him sleep better. He used to wake up a lot before, but now he sleeps more soundly and wakes up feeling refreshed. I read somewhere that magnetic bracelets help increase blood flow, helping deliver more nutrients to the body and improve the removal of toxins and contaminants from tissues throughout the body. It also helps promote peaceful sleep as the magnets can influence the production of melatonin, a sleep hormone that helps us know when to sleep and when to wake up. So, when he kept on complaining about not getting enough sleep, I bought him the bracelet. I know he just doesn’t want to admit it, but I am positive that it’s indeed because of it that he’s having more restful nights.

Stretch to get more buff

Bend to get your muscles toned. Studies show that adding two stretching sessions to your routine could triple your muscle strength. Stretching causes tiny tears in your muscles; as your body repairs them, the tissue becomes stronger. Add 10 minutes of stretching to your post workout routine and start buffing those muscles.

He Wants His Old Bike

I wonder how much it would cost for an international motorcycle shipping service because my brother wants his old motorcycle shipped to the US. He has this limited edition bike that he left when he migrated to the US. It’s still in excellent condition even if it has been sitting in our garage for years. He says a colleague of his wants to buy it, that’s why he’s pretty keen on having the bike sent there. I will have to do a lot of research on this because this is the first time that we are shipping a vehicle out of the country.

Burn 3x More Fat

coffee

Do you like working out or walking in the morning? Sip coffee first. Your cup of joe provides a dose of energizing caffeine. The energy you need to endure exercise or a brisk walk. Heart and lung function are at their natural low, in the first three hours after awakening. This can make you feel sluggish and cause workouts to feel harder. Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, increasing heart rate and blood flow, to improve endurance. Scientists also found that coffee can rev fat burning during exercise by 30 percent and reduce post-exercise muscle pain by 48 percent.

Mail’s All Sent

I had to print envelopes for our upcoming tourney. We had to send invitations to the different bowling clubs and associations early enough for them to prepare their teams. It’s tough to be the association’s secretary. Most of the work falls on me. I had to make sure everyone gets the invitations and the tournament rules. At least my job is done all I have to do now is wait for the replies.

Flatten Your Tummy Fast with this Move

To get flat abs fast, skip the sit-ups and try vertical leg crunches instead. Researchers found that this type of crunch produced 30 percent more activity in the rectus abdominis (the muscles that create a six-pack) and 140 percent more activity in the obliques (the muscles that cinch the waistline). To do: Lie flat on the floor, extend your legs up in the air and cross your ankles. Lift your torso towards your knees. Do 10 to 12 reps.

My son took formal guitar lessons. His band mate and backup guitarist is self-taught. Despite this, constant practice honed his skill and is a very good guitar player. His collection of DVDs of great learn and master guitar from guitar center is his secret. His perseverance paid off. He’s very talented and loves his craft. You rarely see a person pursue his dream. He’s very gounded, too and never flaunts his gift. His parents must be really be proud of him.

Health Alert: High Trans Fat Diet

Scientists found that women who consumed a high proportion of tans fat – an ingredient in many prepackaged foods – were 48 percent more likely than usual to develop endometriosis, a condition in which cells of the uterine lining grow elsewhere in the body. They say the most likely reason for this is that the Trans fat triggers inflammation that spurs atypical tissue growth.

Secret Hobby

It’s been awhile since I played the clarinet. It is my secret hobby. Very few friends know about this. My old clarinet needs some upkeep. They have affordable vandoren bass clarinet reeds at guitar center. Very few shops carry these and I’m glad I found a shop that sells them. I can’t wait to start playing again. It relaxes me.
