Think Thin Thursday ~ New Year, New Body, Begin in the Middle

Real Estate Agent with Florida Supreme Realty SL514814

     An interesting fact about New Year resolutions is that by January 12th 92% of them have already been broken. I will make several resolutions throughout the year although the 1st of January is never their beginning date for me. The theory that you need repetition for 30 days to have anything become a habit has now been scientifically proved to occur physiologically in only 21 days. Therefore, what are we waiting for, let's get started.

     Why do I say begin in the middle? I want to address your core. It's where your movement and power is generated. Every twist and turn depends on your core, its stability and its strength. If you have given up on your resolution already I urge you to start over right here & right now. This may be all the exercise you'll ever need or want for that matter, but I can guarantee by Valentine's Day you'll feel like a new person if you follow these two simple exercises.

This New Year can be the one you've always dreamed about or the one you've dreaded.  Either is brought upon us by a tiny little change.

Good morning, Kevin J. May I look forward to your thursday posts.... this one is most important.... core is most important.... I do a core workout every-single-day and evening.... I learned this one from one of my grandsons when he was at the police academy...

it's a leg lift that's timed.... lay on back with legs extended and lifted 6" off the floor...arms extended  out to side.... I'm at 4 minutes 34 seconds as my longest hold.... 

the police academy makes you hold that position for 20 seconds and rest 10 seconds...and repeat....  my grandson took a video of my first lift and hold on my floor at home when he was at the academy....sent it to the entire class!!!  and called them all babies....OMG.... I'm so abused!

I definitely need to work more on my core, I think about it, but most of the time that is as far as it goes.

Kevin- this is the area I need to tackle. I was doing planks every day and want to get back into it.

Hello Kevin - back to basics, back to your core. The middle seems to be "the place".

Very cool. When we were both doing Pilates regularily, we had a very strong core. This is great advice, and the exercises look managable for many people - so important. We will give it a whirl, what do we have to lose? Hahaha.

Kevin this is great! I've been looking for an idea to add onto hiking as my core really needs some work.  Thanks!!!  What I like is she's made is simple, easy to not overwheming at all like anther book I had in my libray - which I though no way is all that going to happen. Simple, Easy and fun.

Hi Kevin J. May, core exercises are often avoided by so many. I see people at the gym with big muscles and their cores are not toned, not smart.

Hi Kevin

Thanks for the inspiration! My core could definitely use more help. I am back into spin classes regularly but need to focus on that core a bit more.
