Running away on my own….

By Jeffery Seah | Blog , Fitness

How often do you run away, on your own? I guess that question does not apply to you if you were never one who runs.

For the most part of 2010, I’ve been running away every tuesday and thursday, first thing in the morning. It began as a personal manifesto and resolution at the beginning of the year, to stay committed and accountable to myself, that ” whatever it takes ” attitude, to do my run.

The year begun with a big bang, I was able to convince 3 other friends to join me, as we….. run away to better health. Along the way, my friends drop out even as I persisted. Towards the second half of the year, new friends joined me in the ritual.

This past week finds me running away…. on my own once again. The conclusion was made after two runs on my own, that it was much more fulfilling, satisfying and enriching…. running away on my own.

Running away on your own is therapeutic if you see it the way I do.

Often times, we raced thru our days responding to our work, demands from our bosses, requests from our friends, things we must get done, commitment we ought to fulfill, deadlines we should meet, etc. We were, in actual fact, reacting to the circumstances and events in our life.

And hardly did we spend any time…. enriching our soul. Hardly do we invest anytime…. reflecting on our days, planning ahead and letting our creative juice flows, unhindered and undistracted.

For me, running enables me to stay in my power. It is something I do, for myself. It is personal time well spend and invested on my body, my mind and my soul.

As i glide along the expansive route on the east coast park, my lungs they were inundated with the unpolluted crisp clear air with a hint of the morning dew. The massive sea extending to the horizon, with its calming waves colliding ashore offers a soothing symphony to my ears. Together with the morning rays of the glorious sun and my self affirmation audios plug in….. I was teleported into my ideal world of body, mind and soul harmony.

If you’ve never tried running away or walking away…. on your own, try it. First thing in your waking hours. Infused your mind with all things positive and beautiful as you begin your day. Not only does it exercise your body, it can and will exercise the muscles of your creativity. I can’t tell you how many bright ideas, aha moments, epiphanies have i had as I ran away on my own. Suffice it to say that there were an overflowing abundance, as I began my day uncluttered with the intricacies of life, in close proximity with mother nature.

With the presence of mind body and soul, the universe has never failed to infiltrate my mind with moments of brilliance with their divine interventions.

I thank all my friends, for letting me experience the contrast, the distinction, of running on my own, as compared to running with a buddy.

One is purely fitness, bonding and fun. The other…. fitness, a sacred dumping ground for my days of insignificant irritations, invigorating, spiritual and more.

Shocking proof about Fat loss

By Jeffery Seah | Fitness

I may have finally found the shocking truth about fat loss. One of my 2009 resolutions is to reduce my body fat percentages down to 12% or below this year.

And when you have a reasonably sound routine, it gets more and more challenging and see no significant results. I ate right most of the times and drink lots and lots of water each day.

In fact, I would suppose I exercise more regularly than most people my age …. but somehow, the last few percentage points is just so stubborn.

And so this year, I’m not leaving it to chance.

As I was searching for answers and what else I need to do to ensure I get rid of those stubborn mid section fats clinging on to me for my lifetime, I chance upon this fat loss site.

According to this lady doctor, the shocking truth and real reason why most people can’t get rid of those stubborn fats has got nothing to do with their will power, over eating or right diet.

It’s something else, and mind you, this can get quite graphic. If you have a weak stomach, do not click on the link.

I think I’ll stand a much better chance this year to lose those remaining stubborn fats. On to my quest for a firmer toner midsection, and getting rid of those disgusting parasites.

Pistachios good for you

By Jeffery Seah | Blog , Fitness

Pistachios lower cholesterol and the risk of heart disease, say Pennsylvania state University scientists. When people with high cholesterol added 85g of shelled pistachios – about two handfuls – to their daily diets, their LDL ( bad ) cholesterol dropped 12 percent. Credit the high content of unsaturated fats and antioxidants, both of which help prevent arterial plaque, says study author Sarah Gebauer, PhD.

They’re not just snack food though. Canadian researchers found adding pistachios to a carbohydrate-rich meal can significantly decrease your blood-sugar response.
