If you had to choose but ONE exercise, pushups would be it. The main goals of any training program are as follows (either all, or one of the following) - Supreme health and fitness from the inside out - as well as INNER vitality Core strength, and that ripped midsection everyone wants - along with the associated HEALTH benefits. A clear mind and an ability to focus like a horse with blinders on even the most DAUNTING of goals out there. Either fitness wise or life wise. WEIGHT LOSS - that bug bear we're ALL concerned about, hehe, and getting rid of the lard lumps. Building layer upon layer of FUNCTIONAL muscle (as opposed to the bloat you get at the gym). Increase stamina and a sense of calm and well being throughout the day. And those, my friend are just off the top of my head. Those are the major workout goals for most people, and the pushup will address all these concerns in a royal manner - and then some! Not to mention getting in a workout in the minimum amount of time - - with a minimum of space available. All you need is a floor and a wall - - and you're set! However, tell the average guy he can get a complete workout by doing nothing other than pushups alone - and he'll likely look at you as if you've gone off your rocker. This course should do MUCH, if not ALL to prevent this sort of silly notion from spreading any further than it has. Damage control I know, but an ocean is made up of DROPS, my friend, and enough damage control will ensure that people in general will (finally) start to get back into the sort of shape they were meant to be - as opposed to fat, lazy, slovenly creatures stuffing all sorts of junk down their gullet all day long. Pushups, my friend will turn you into the REAL MAN - or woman you were meant to be. You'll not only look and feel a lot better when adopting this exercise as the mainstay of your routine - but you'll also have a laser sharp MIND capable of accomplishing just about anything you put your mind to - be that in terms of LIFE - or workout. The immortal Bruce Lee did these all the time - - he was reputed to have done 400 one arm, 2 finger pushups -at a STRETCH! The benefits YOU can expect to get from this course A rock solid midsection and a core that looks like it's carved from STEEL. I don't care if you're a boxer, or martial artist, or just the everyday "blob", hehe (sorry, but sometimes one has to be honest) - - we could ALL use that sort of a midsection - - not to mention the six pack - - doncha think? If you've been suffering from IBS - or flatulence - or those annoying issues that make you "constantly have to go" - well - you might as well kiss them goodbye once you start on these exercises! Your entire abdominal region and lower back will become rock solid - and health issues will become a thing of the PAST. You'll build a massive upper body - shoulders and chest -not to mention slabs of MUSCLE all over back - especially the upper back - and this won't be the bloated "gym" muscle you see all over the place that looks good, but ain't got squat to back it up, hehe (pun intended!) Your legs will get the workout of their lives on some of these pushups - believe me now - and trust me LATER! You'll start to lose FAT - that unsightly blubber around your waist and midsection specifically within a FEW workouts. That's right - and this fat loss will be so RAPID you'll not only wonder where the love handles, muffin tops, bingo wings etc WENT - - but you'll be scratching your head in amazement at the sheer SPEED you'll lose weight at! Improved digestion is a given - not to mention an increased appetite. You'll be able to eat more, and still not turn into "Tubbo" i.e. no more unsightly lard anywhere on your frame! You'll be able to fit into clothes you haven't fit into for years. Friends and co-workers won't believe the rapid changes in you - and will ALL want to know the secret! .. And a LOT more! Jump on this NOW, my friend. Its THAT good!

Fight food addiction and overeating with fitness guides, recipes, and meal plans from renowned physician Pam Peeke. In The Hunger Fix, Dr. Pam Peeke uses the latest neuroscience to explain how unhealthy food and behavioral "fixes" have gotten us ensnared in a vicious cycle of overeating and addiction. She even shows that dopamine rushes in the body work exactly the same way with food as with cocaine. Luckily, we are all capable of rewiring, and the very same dopamine-driven system can be used to reward us for healthful, exciting, and fulfilling activities. The Hunger Fix lays out a science-based, three-stage plan to break the addiction to false fixes and replace them with healthier actions. Fitness guides, meal plans, and recipes are constructed to bolster the growth of new neurons and stimulate the body's reward system. Gradually, healthy fixes like meditating, going for a run, laughing, and learning a new language will replace the junk food, couch time, and other bad habits that leave us unhappy and overweight. Packed with practical tips, useful advice, and plenty of wit, wisdom, and inspiring stories of those who have successfully transformed their bodies, The Hunger Fix is a life-changing program for anyone (of any size) trapped by food obsession and the urge to overeat.

I give you all fair warning; this story is mine. There are many like it, but this one is mine. I am my best friend. It is my life. I am an AIDS survivor and a Marine. I must master my rifle. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my rifle is useless; without my rifle, I am useless. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. Before God I swear this creed, my rifle and I are defenders of my country. We are masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is Americas, and there is no enemy but peace! Be prepared to get pissed off, begin to hate, begin to love, want to get violent. This may cause seizures, cause you to attack somebody, have you attacked, begin to question things, and quite possibly find yourself living a great life in reference to mine. You may also learn how to live without malice in your heart. I would suggest this book be placed in an adults hands, but if youre an addict or if youre thinking of using drugs, read further regardless. I also suggest anyone who is living with HIV/AIDS have a look also. I learned to relinquish my weapons and step aside, can you? I firmly ask you again, do not enter!

The Caught Up in Love Collection is a bundle of the four standalone romances in the Caught Up in Love series! The Pretending Plot... I don't mean to just blurt it out. "Why, yes, I'm engaged!" But once I say it to a potential client, there's only one logical thing to do—cast the role of my fake fiancé. Easy enough. As a casting director, my job is to find the most talented players for every part, so I choose dreamy, edgy, sexy, sarcastic Reeve. And I sign him up for one week in the role of mine. It's not as if I'll fall for him in five nights even if we get a little cozy one night at the theater. It's not as if I'll want more even after a scorching afternoon in the stacks of the New York Public Library. I can't let myself fall because on Friday at midnight the curtain drops on our fake romance… * * * The Dating Proposal... Watch out world - I'm ready to date again. The seven years I invested in my ex left me with nothing but scorch marks from the way he peeled out and left me at the altar. I'm not looking to put my heart into a relationship any time soon. But getting back out there? That sounds like a helluva good idea to get my groove back. Then I bump into Chris....Clever and funny, with a sexy surfer's bod and a brilliant nerd brain, he has just the right screwdriver to fix my hard drive. (Yes, the one for my computer.) I wouldn't mind dating him. The trouble is he just proposed to me-to be the dating guru on his TV show-and now he's my new business partner. What happens when you meet the right person at the wrong time? * * * The Second Chance Plan... I have a big plan for my career and it most certainly doesn’t involve my ex. AKA my first love. It definitely doesn’t entail working with him every day on a brand-new project for my jewelry line. And it absolutely doesn’t include falling for the man all over again. But the trouble is, he’s kind, charming and so damn smart. Not to mention easy on the eyes. And thoughtful, too. Also, he wants to get to know me again. To take me out for coffee, to chat on the phone, to go to museums. It’s a dizzying, delicious courtship, but I don’t know if my heart can handle this from the man who broke it to pieces once upon a time… Or am I willing to risk everything for a second chance at first love? * * * The Private Rehearsal... The first rule of directing is simple: Never fall for your leading lady. The second? Don’t let it get to you when she stage kisses another man. Looks like I’ve already broken both. Now my jealous, possessive heart wants all of her – the ingenue who’s the star of my next show. I’m captivated by her raw talent, her addictive charm, and her desperate need for me. Soon we’re staying late in the empty theater, our private rehearsals spiraling into forbidden territory. Exactly where I can’t go. Because then I’d break the most dangerous rule of all. Don’t give her your heart. Because how can I be sure that what she feels is real and not a part of the play?

She fell in love when she first saw him on the television screen. From that moment on, Nicole vowed to become an actress. Decades later, when Gary and Nicole meet by chance, Gary doesn’t fall in love with the real Nicole Graham, just a sanitized version of her. Since childhood, Nicole has had a cross to bear that nobody knows about except her mother, Reba, but she can’t tell anyone….anymore. Through years of diaries and letters hidden in a secret trunk, Gary learns the truth about his beloved. As he reads the story of her life in her own words, Nicole clings to life after being involved in a near-fatal plane crash. But will he still feel the same about her, even if she survives? Can he forgive her for all the lies? This book was written in memory of one of my favourite actors, and to remind us that not all illnesses are worn on one’s shirt sleeves.
