Save Time - Burn Fat - Get High!

Or in other words: Jogging Sucks!

The other week when the weather was getting warmer and the sun was really bright, I started jogging again. I loved getting all that fresh air and sunshine and felt like I got a moderate workout from running.

My main reason for running was just an excuse to get outside for the fresh air and the much needed vitamin D from the sunshine.

We had a crazy thing happen here in New Jersey. On Thursday we reached a high of 79° and two days later we had a nor'easter with a high of only 34°. We went from summer to winter in only 2 days and had a bunch of snow and ice to boot.

So needless to say I wasn't going to run in this weather. I've run in the past in the snow and ice, but there was no sunshine to give me extra motivation to get out there.

Instead, I did my Lightning Aerobics which is part of the Lightning Speed Fitness Program. Wow what a difference in results. The first thing I notice is the great high I feel after doing them. I rarely if ever get this high from running. Maybe because I'll only run for 15 to 20 minutes at a time. But that's beside the point.

I get an awesome natural high, each and every time I do Lightning Aerobics. This is the most amazing way to start and energize your day. Did you know that people who do vigorous exercise daily are also 30% more productive at work?

If you've been using the no-time to exercise excuse, you're deluding yourself. If you exercise, you'll have more time and a better quality of life by far.

No here's the problem with jogging. It's not working enough muscles. You're certainly not building big or strong muscles. Yeah it works your heart a little bit, but nothing compared to how much oxygen you take in when doing Lightning Aerobics or the Lightning Speed Exercise.

In fact, you're very likely to get an injury from the constant stress of pounding-the-pavement. Here's another sad fact, many long distance runners look prematurely old for their age. I've even seen this with runners eating a fantastic diet.

All those hours of running increase the free radical levels in your body and it makes many runners look prematurely old. Hey if you like running, then go for it, but in terms of getting fit I believe it's a massive time waster.

By the way, sprinting is another story altogther. Sprinting and other similar anaerobic exercises can actually improve your aerobic capacity better and faster than jogging.

Jogging only works your lower limbs (and not all that well I might add) why not use all four limbs, your whole body in fact and actually strengthen your abs while you're at it. Hands down, jogging doesn’t even come close to Lightning Aerobics in terms of beneficial results to you.

If jogging is the only exercise you'll do, then go for it. But if you want to put on muscles, get fast, get high, double your energy levels and burn fat in 15 minutes or less, then you must get yourself on over to

P.S. Yes I know you were told that running and traditional aerobics are so good for you. But times are changing and you can get much quicker and more enjoyable fitness results with my no-equipment necessary Lightning Speed Fitness Program.

Go on and take a look and if you're already a member of our club then what are you waiting for? Go and do Lightning Aerobics every morning before you start your day and you'll thank me later. You'll feel like a million bucks.

I promise.

The Spiritual Secret To Happiness Hidden In This Jimmy Stewart Movie

A couple of weeks ago I watched for the first time an old Jimmy Stewart movie from 1950 called "Harvey." I'm not sure why I decided to keep on watching it but it somehow caught my attention.

And boy am I glad I did watch it. That movie held a hidden secret to happiness for those with the awareness to recognize the secret and live differently after seeing this movie.

I've read several reviews of the movie, but a good portion of the reviewers made no mention of the most important thing revealed in this so-called comedy. These people just didn't get the incredible secret to constant happiness that was being revealed to them.

I can see why. It takes a certain kind of spiritual training to understand that you could use this principle in your daily life. I've heard of "constantly focusing on divine love" or "practicing the presence of God," but this movie applied this idea in a very different way than I was used to thinking.

In fact, it's changed how I view and react to life. Jimmy Stewarts character Elwood P. Dowd was always happy. Nothing appearing negative could faze him or take him out of his belief that every day is a beautiful day.

He was a perfect example of being CAUSE or the conscious source of his own reality. No matter how bad things appeared to others, to Elwood it was always a wonderful thing. He always reframed things "that appeared negative to others" into something positive. This was just his natural state of being. Nothing difficult here.

The magical result of his thinking and belief system was that nothing could harm him, even though he was in ominous circumstances several times in the movie.

It's the Law of Attraction in action. Expect good things to come and they always will. It's a law of the universe and it works universally. And if no matter how negative something appears you treat it as a good thing, then all you'll get is a constant flow of positive experiences. This is the spiritual art of detachment.

In the movie, the reason nothing seemingly negative ever happened to Elwood P. Dowd was that he had a magical friend a 6 foot 3.5 inch rabbit that protected him. This invisible rabbit (but visible to Elwood) mysteriously manipulated events so that no one could do any harm to Elwood.
I realized, that we all have this rabbit or pooka with us should we so choose. We live in a dynamic spiritual universe. All we do is spiritual. Whether it's business, or talking with friends and family members, it's all spiritual. Spiritual lessons can be learned in any field of endeavor.

But if you want to enter into the spiritual dimensions of abundance and love there are very specific rules you must follow. You can't experience love for instance, if you don't give love.

Another rule is that Soul or "you" exist in the moment. It's what you're doing in the present moment that counts, the past and future don't matter. No matter if you're the worst mass murderer, God never holds it against you, if in that moment you open to divine love, then even the most evil person will experience heaven and happiness.

If you hold any kind of grudge, then in that moment you can't enter into the spiritual kingdom. God is all forgiving, if we want to be happy all the time, then we must go beyond our egos and be all forgiving as well.

The key to heaven lies in the moment. If you want to be happy, then only see happiness and love around you. Expect only the best and you'll get it.

One of my favorite parts of the movie had to deal with "being pleasant." That was such a golden nugget of wisdom. Look for it in the movie and it could change the course of your life for the better.

This is one of those movies I plan to watch over and over again. I've already seen it twice and I plan on getting my own DVD of it.

P.S. Remember no matter how negative a situation seems to be, it's only your perception of negativity that makes it negative. Try to only see the positive no matter how you would have reacted to the same circumstances in the past. When you do that, then every day will be "A beautiful day in the neighborhood."
