If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

Gotchya! LOL
Thought you were going to get out of exercising didn't ya. LOL
Nope, you can actually stand motionless and still toning and slim down is what they are getting at.
So here's what you can do.

Glute Squeeze: Firmly contract your glutes and thighs while standing upright and still. Hold for 10 seconds (remember to breathe!), then relax. Repeat 10 times.

Ab Brace: While standing motionless, tighten your abdominal muscles as if you were anticipating a punch to the stomach. Hold for 10 seconds, then relax. Do ten of these. They'll smoothe out the appearance of a potbelly while toning and strengthening the abs,

Reaching your full height adds vertical inches while subtracting horizontal ones, says Jennifer Kries, a Pilates master teacher and a fitness and integrated wellness expert. But after spending most of our time bent over laptops, smart phones, and vertically challenged companions (be they children, friends or pets), standing up straight with our shoulders back can almost feel exaggerated. Improve your posture (and avoid puffing out your chest) with this move.
Shining the Heart Open: For this exercise, stand tall with your heels together and your toes apart in Pilates "tripod stance." Squeeze your inner thighs, quads and glutes. With your hands hanging by your sides, turn your palms to face out so that the pinkie finger is glued to the outer edge of your thigh. This opens the chest and shoulders while strengthening the triceps and upper back, Kries says. Hold for one minute or two

Tighten from Head to Toe

Tone your entire body with an intense move that Kries says is derived from Qigong, or the Chinese practice of integrating breath and movement for exercise, healing and meditation.

Harnessing Heaven: Stand with your feet a little wider than hip distance apart and your toes pointing out. Working from the soles of your feet upward, engage the quads, outer thighs, glutes and abs. Now lift your arms overhead, but keep them wider than your shoulders, with elbows slightly bent—as if they're encircling a giant ball. Lift your eyes and look up between your hands. As you continue to reach and extend the lower body, also feel like you're pulling down through your arms (your belly button should be your center of energy). Hold for 3 to 5 minutes. Bring the arms down slowly and relax. Repeat 2 more times.

Strengthen Your Core

You've heard it before (and that's because it's true): A strong core helps support your spine and tighten your tummy—and it's more comfortable than sucking everything in to look slimmer. This do-anywhere exercise was developed by Fred DeVito and Elisabeth Halfpapp, the creators of the ab-busting program Core Fusion. In this position, you'll be toning not only your abdominal muscles but also your chest, shoulders and arms, DeVito says.

Standing Plank: Stand with your body angled toward a wall and your feet behind your hips. Lean forward, place your forearms on the wall—about shoulder-width apart—and walk your feet back as far as you can without lifting your heels. Press the forearms into the wall for 30 to 60 seconds. Do this 3 times.








THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's keeps us going, when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT: EAT TO LIVE WITH COMMITMENT, CONSISTENCY, & CONTROL
