15 Oct 10 Get strong and toned abs in a very short time

I am really happy with my flex belt! It helped me get strong, toned abs quicker than I ever could on my own or with any other equipment. I have only been using the flex belt for 60 days and I am already more toned, stronger and thinner than I have ever been. For me, having a tight core is a must. I had tried everything from diets, weightlifting, even yoga! Nothing has worked as well as my flex belt. This contour abs belt has toned me in a way nothing ever has before. I am a work –a-holic and have trouble getting to the gym every day. Having something easy that I can do at home to better tone my stomach has been a life saver. It allows me to get all my other household tasks done, all while toning my stomach.

I can dust, vacuum and fold laundry all while working out and getting contour abs!
The flex belt is like doing electronic sit ups. Traditional sit ups are such a pain to do. You not only have to find the time but a place to do them as well. The flex belt is the perfect solution. It takes no time to use it since you can multi-task and do other chores while getting a great abs work out at the same time. This means no more excess fat or ‘jiggly’ parts around your mid section. With this ingenious abs toner, you simply put it around your waist and let it do the work for you.

It flexes away all that excess weight leaving you the time to do other things without interfering with your workout. You can get Britney Spears’ abs without all the work!
The flex belt is FDA cleared for toning and strengthening your abdominal region and has medical grade toning technology for men and women. With the flex belt you can feel results in as little as 4 weeks! If you use your flex belt daily you should see results in 4 to 8 weeks. Using it regularly, once a week, after that can help maintain results. The flex belt retails for $199, which took me aback a little at first. But once I calculated how much I would be saving on gym fees, gas to and from the gym, not to mention putting a price on my free time I realized what a deal I was really getting. Being free from gyms and working out truly is priceless.

24 Aug 10 How to ensure a lifelong recovery from drug addiction

Being addicted to any kind of drug is painful both physically and mentally. There are  however, steps and a particular process that leads to a drug rehab recovery but whatever step you take toward recovering will not be easy but it can be done with determination and support.

First of all, you must admit that you need to change your ways and get off the drug. This first step is the most difficult but once you make it, you will be on your way toward healthier and drug-free life. Being addicted to drugs can make a person feel down but with some guidance and help, you can feel renewed and hopeful.

Second, seek help from a trusted friend or family member or help from a drug rehab center. A drug rehab center can not only help you get off the drugs but also advise you on how to stay drug-free. They have the counselors and support system you need to successfully get off drugs.

Third, while going through the recovery process , seek and maintain, support from friends and family, and if needed, inpatient and outpatient substance abuse treatment. With this kind of support, you will learn how to deal with emotions such as grief, sadness, negativity and depression—and deal with theses emotions without the help of drugs. To help you get through the recovery process you may want to keep a journal of your feelings, try some relaxation exercises and communicate honestly with those around you. In addition, it is important to sustain a support system of people who place a high value on staying sober and drug-free.

Fourth, make up a relapse prevention plan. Write down what triggers your need for drugs such as certain people, events or places and then plan on how you will deal with these events when they happen. Keep your life on an even keel with medical care, recreation and exercise. By doing this you will be giving your body and mind a normal and routine environment and you will experience a calmness and solidarity that will help you stay from drugs. This is a very important step for a successful drug rehab.

Fifth, if you have a relapse, don’t take it hard. Recovery, no matter if it’s from drug abuse, alcohol abuse or an addiction to gambling–recovery takes time and patience. If you have a relapse, understand that you had a moment of weakness. Learn from it and then get right back into recovery! Most importantly, stay away from people or places where you are more prone to go back to drugs. Remember, you deserve a healthy and drug-free life!
