This exercise should be a part of everyone’s routine! It is easy to do, require no equipment, and can be done just about anywhere! More importantly, although squats are often regarded as “leg and butt” exercises, they actually offer benefits throughout your entire body, including deep within your core…
The Top 4 Body Benefits of Squats
- Builds Muscle in Your Entire Body Not Just Legs and Butt. Squats help build your leg muscles (including your quadriceps, hamstrings, and calves), but you also produce growth of cells in other parts of the body which promotes body-wide muscle building.
- Build A Better Butt! Few exercises work as many muscles as the squat, so it’s an excellent multi-purpose activity useful for lifting and tightening your behind, abs, and, of course, your legs.
- Burn More Fat! One of the most time-efficient ways to burn more calories is actually to gain more muscle so why not gain it where you know you really want it! For every pound of additional muscle you gain, your body will burn an additional 50-70 calories per day. So, if you gain 10 pounds of muscle, you will automatically burn 500-700 more calories per day than you did before.
- Help with Waste Removal! Squats improve the pumping of body fluids, aiding in removal of waste and delivery of nutrition to all tissues, including organs and glands. They’re also useful for improved movement of feces through your colon and more regular bowel movements.
The 50 squats and lunges must be completed every day and should be done in a row resting on Sunday. You just cannot do 5 one hour 5 another hour etc. and break them up.
If you miss doing your squats one day, you can make it up the following day. However, you cannot do your squats in advance. For example, you cannot do tomorrows squats today so that you can take tomorrow off. Missing a day should be a rare if not nonexistent occurrence.
If you do squats as part of your daily workout or WOD, they can count towards the daily 50. *Strive for Integrity. There will be no one watching over you or telling you to get them done. It will be up to you to be accountable for yourself.
Could this be you? Rather than pass judgement, Chocolate lovers stand up, UNITE and pass the chocolate! There is nothing wrong with a little chocolate every now and then but some of you are taking it a little too far. There are some cues that may indicate a mighty affection for the dark or milky chocolate confection but we may be able to spot out other suspicious behaviors you may not yet recognized as an issue.
- If you imagine seeing yourself in every piece of chocolate you eat, then you are a chocoholic.
-If you eat death by chocolate cake with double chocolate ice cream with chocolate chips frosting with a side scoop of fudge, then you are a chocoholic.
-If you ate the chocolate bars you needed to make the smores you planned to make out of two brownies served with chocolate ice cream and chocolate topping, but then you also sucked all the chocolate topping out of the bottle before putting it on the ice cream, then you are a chocoholic.
-If you make brownies with the Hershey’s chocolate syrup package three time a week then add ½ cup of Nestles chocolate syrup, plus peal the wrappers off thirty-two Hershey’s chocolate kisses to dot strategically in the cake pan and ate the remaining 29 kisses left in the bag while it’s baking, then you are a chocoholic.
-If you buy the entire box of chocolates on sale at the bank teller window for a local school, ask for the name of the student selling the chocolate, then stalk that student and are arrested for stalking a student, then you are a chocoholic.
-If you wear silk boxers with a Godiva chocolate tank top while programming your personal cell phone ring manually to play “N E S T L E S nestles makes the very best CHOC LATE.” Then you are a chocoholic.
You want to lick this post or are inspired by some of these ideas, then you are a chocoholic.

Black History Month is an annual observance in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom for remembrance of important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. However, there are some of us who are blessed to have someone in our life today that has the beautiful quality to influence you to become your personal best! Every community has its influential people –elected officials, entertainers, social/political activists, pioneers, business people, religious leaders, artists, or just friends and family when it comes to how to make things happen.
Black History Month had its beginnings in 1926 in the United States, when historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History announced the second week of February to be “Negro History Week”. This week was chosen because it marked the birthday of both Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Woodson created the holiday with the hope that it eventually be eliminated when black history became fundamental to American history. Negro History Week was met with enthusiastic response; it prompted the creation of black history clubs, an increase in interest among teachers, and interest from progressive whites. Negro History Week grew in popularity throughout the following decades, with mayors across the United States endorsing it
In 1976, the federal government acknowledged the expansion of Black History Week to Black History Month by the leaders of the Black United Students at Kent State University in February of 1969. The first celebration of Black History Month occurred at Kent State in February of 1970. Six years later during the bicentennial, the expansion of Negro History Week to Black History Month was recognized by the U.S. government. Gerald Ford spoke in regards to this, urging Americans to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Source Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_History_Month
