My ZAAZ Experience–A New Level Of ZAAZing

So–Where am I?

When I started this fitness program and began using the ZAAZ, this is where I was:

Wgt.–208

Waist–43

Hips–52

Bust–44

Left Thigh–24

Right thigh–26

Cellilite–Large Curd Cottage Cheese (the worst)

Fluid retention–moderate.

After 2 months on a 1000 calorie diet doing OnLY the ZAAZ 4 times a day and using resistance bands, I had lost : 21.5 pounds, 2.5 inches off waist, 3 inches off hips, 1.5 inches off bust, 2 inches off right thigh, and 1 inch off left thigh. And the cellulite is down to lemon skin LOL. In addition to the vast improvement in the appearance of my cellulite, my skin SEEMS to be more supple, and friends have remarked that my new skin care regimen seems to work, as I “glow” now.

While I did change my overall skin care regimen, nothing I did would have been expected to produce a “glow”.

Circulation wise, I was able to move down to a lower level of compression socks, and my feet are never cold anymore.  I have also noted that the baker’s cyst in the left knee is greatly reduced, and I rarely get fluid buildup in that knee anymore.

Then I Added Chuze Fitness To My Fitness Regimen…

I chose Chuze as they had opened a new one right next to my grocery store and they offer an extremely valuable premium membership program. For 20.00/month you get sauna, steam rooms, tanning, hydro massage, and all the workout equipment you could want want, along with your choice of some very good classes–no limits. At any Chuze in town. They also offer a reward app that allows you to earn points for free merchandise and has special contests also.

I discovered that while I have ZERO stamina–I could barely manage 10 minutes on a recumbent bike trying for my target heart rate– I was able to go through a variety of different exercise devices, from using the Pilates balls and rollers to the circuit equipment. I ZAAZ as soon as I get home from the gym and before I drink my protein shake. When I started, I wouldn’t last an hour, and all the machines I used were set for minimum weight–typically around 15 pounds. The exception was the leg press, set at 50 pounds.

Where I Am, Now At Chuze…

I am now working out an hour or so twice a day when time allows–once when I wake up and once a few hours before bed (whatever time that may be). The LOWEST weight I use on any circuit machine is 30 pounds, and on most I am at 50. I can now press 150 pounds on the leg press. I sauna and steam, and occasionally use the hydro massage, but I ALWAYS ZAAZ as soon as I get home and before eating.

My weight loss is currently at a plateau–STILL *sigh*. But as I am losing inches, I am happy. My current weigh is 178, and I have lost between 1 and 2.25 inches off eacj body part in the time I have been going to Chuze–an experience I will document separately.

My New Yoga Workout…..

So I went out on You Tube, and found all kinds of ZAAZ videos, including a super good Yoga workout that incorporates my ZAAZ. While I am still not quite flexible enough to hold some of the positions comfortably,  the program has helped increase my range of motion more–a good thing given the recent level of activity I have been experiencing due to business issues (another story altogether).

I also have developed my own pattern of positions that suits me well, and I go through them while listening to toning bowls and ZAAZing. This video is only one of literally thousands, and I highly recommend going through them on You Tube–I just used ZAAZ exercises as a search term to get me started–and trying some out. My new regimen is:

  1. Get up, go to gym.
  2. Come home, ZAAZ, shake and breakfast.
  3.  “fidgetcize” while writing (fidgetcizing will be explained later)
  4. Mid morning stretches with resistance bands while ZAAZing, and snack
  5. Repeat #3.
  6. Lunch
  7. Do any housework/errands.
  8. Repeat step 4
  9. Dinner
  10. Relax and me time surfing, playing games, watching NCIS back episodes
  11. Repeat #3
  12. Gym, then protein shake and ZAAZ
  13. Bath
  14. Bed

So, altogether a moderately busy day with plenty of flexibility in it for other things. Whether I lose weight or not isn’t a major concern, as I am more interested in getting in better shape, having more strength and stamina. But as I add more activity or increase my activity level by making the activities more intensive, I expect I will begin losing again.

P.S.–bought some new dresses :-).

Maybe People Will “Get” REDDIT Now….AND ADMIT I WAS RIGHT!

/r/The_Donald Goes To “War”

From the very beginning of this amazing election cycle, I have been telling people, Including the Trump campaign at every opportunity, that they should not underestimate REDDIT. Naturally, many of those older folk replied “REDDIT? What’s a REDDIT?”, while other “Conservatives” made noises of disgust and said (as they say of Facebook and Twitter) “I would NEVER go there. REDDIT is a bunch of filth, perversion, and social justice warriors/leftist loons”.

WELL GUESS WHAT, PEOPLE–WHILE YOU’VE BEEN PEARL CLUTCHING OVER THE MEDIA AND THEIR PERFIDY, AND SAYING “NOBODY IS DOING ANYTHING”, REDDIT HAS AWAKENED TO WHAT IS GOING ON. AND THE MILLENNIALS MANY OF YOU MOCK ARE P*SSED OFF AS HELL, AND THEY ARE FULLY ENGAGED AND FIGHTING FOR TRUMP.

“What’s a Reddit?”

Reddit is the self proclaimed FRONT PAGE OF THE INTERNET. And if you are a techie, or a millennial–it IS. Over 80% of millennials get most of their news from Reddit and other social media. The site is designed in am manner reminiscent of the old internet BBS format, and is made up of millions of “subreddits”–groups formed by members to discuss common interests.

For the cultural anthropologist, semantic analyst, or psychographic segmentation specialist, Reddit is the closest thing to heaven you could ask for. Reddit literally represents a statistical universe, due to the size and the (relative) lack of regulation. Anyone can start a subreddit about ANYTHING (and some are truly sickening, of course), as easily as you can throw together a free website.

And each subreddit develops a unique culture and language of its own. Enter /r/The_Donald. This subreddit, now boasting over 240,000 members with at least 7-8000 active on the sub AT ANY GIVEN TIME, began life as a motley collection of meme generators, 4channers,  and devotees to the You Tube series CAN’T STUMP THE TRUMP.

If you haven’t watched this amazing example of citizen journalism–I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. While people in my age group (officially antique) were dismissing millennials as clueless, they were getting informed. BE WARNED, this series can be difficult to understand if you don’t know the cultural references involved, and the format will be utterly unlike any “newscast” you’ve ever watched. But this channel and the series serve as a series of newscasts/mini-documentaries. AND READ THE COMMENTS.

When you read beyond all the meme references and sh*tposting, you see that the people who watch this channel have a lot to say. They can see what is happening–thanks to Can’t Stump The Trump–and they don’t like it either.

Behind the #NimbleNavigators, #Centipedes, and BUILD THE WALL….

I was an active participant in /r/The_Donald from early on, and also in /r/AskTrumpSupporters, until life got too hectic. But I still go there daily to read the news, and enjoy the evolution of the subreddit from a sh*tposting, over the top, satirical circlejerk into a focused, highly motivated group of intensely involved people. It’s a testimony to their worth that Donald Trump Himself gave /r/The_Donald an AMA (Redditspeak for Ask Me Anything), that James O’Keefe appealed to /r/The_Donald to help him get his videos out, and to process the wikileaks emails.

Trump campaign staffers routinely read through this subreddit for information, and Trump himself drops by and leaves encouragement every once in a while. Yes, the language may be crude/profane at times, and some may be extremely puzzling–but the people here are contributing a truly unprecedented amount of value to the campaign and to us–is we choose to use it.

Looking for the Wikileaks #Podestaemails gold? GO TO /r/The_Donald.

The #Nimblenavigators have organized themselves into loose “teams”–complete with schedules (in some cases)  and protocols for posting finds of value. In those threads, you’ll find fully sorted, searchable document files and an amazing amount of astute analysis, just waiting to be picked up and used as ammo against your local or internet leftist loons at will.

In this election, it is the citizen journalists, citizen activists, and social media at war against the MSM/Bank/ Corporate/ UNIPARTY machine. And if you haven’t gone to /r/The_Donald to at least “lurk”–you’re missing out on a gold mine of easy to communicate information on our opposition–both in the extensive email research files and in the MEMES. Because these people create some of the most engaging, hard hitting, unique memes on the internet. search through the threads, or just ASK, and you’ll be buried in memes that “convert” like nobody else’s–because they are being created by some of the premier meme generators online today.

Time To Put Aside Your Prejudices, Folks.

We’re nearing the biggest battle of this war, and we need everyone we can get on board and being active. And if Trump and O’Keefe have allied with /r/The_Donald, don’t you think it’s time YOU did, also? Yes, there are some dark and nasty places on Reddit. BUT YOU CAN’T FIND THEM UNLESS YOU LOOK ANYWAY. It’s not like you’ll be slapped in the face with something criminal or just plain sick the minute you hit the front page.

And yes, the #Nimblenavigators can be confusing at times. But that doesn’t mean they should be discounted, by any means. This group has grown, in less than 8 months, from next to nothing to almost A QUARTER OF A MILLION PEOPLE. And it’s high time everyone decides to put credit where credit is due, and take all the wonderful weapons they have turned out, and go forth to victory.

 

 

 

Veritas Strikes Again!

O’Keefe Releases Video Detailing DNC/Clinton Operations to Incite Violence At Trump Events.

Well, it’s about time this cat got let out of the bag! Some may remember way back when Trump came to Tucson, the Bear and I posted a video of his encounter with a genuine paid agitator.

No, the guy didn’t admit as much–it’s a good way to lose your job. But he had ALL the identifying characteristics. I know, I have been paid to protest before LOL. But I only did it for things I ACTUALLY BELIEVE IN. I figured since I was going to be there anyway, I might as well get paid. And that was back BEFORE the job included assault and battery, etc.

How Many Laws Broken??? Well–

Watch the video above while you can still find it, and start counting LOL. I’ll withhold my tally until I read up on some of the more arcane parts of out election and campaign laws. But along with Hillary taking money from foreign powers, her pay for play state department shenanigans, her people tearing up republican registrations…it’s a pile we may NEVER get an accurate count on.

At least a few, the ones regarding communication/coordination between PACs and parties. Of course we saw The Banker’s Husband do the same thing in Utah, so the fact that Rapist’s Wife is doing it everywhere comes as no surprise AT ALL. The big issue here is not just the laws broken–it is the MINDSET of the leftist loons. That it’s perfectly alright to encourage violence and anarchy to get what you want–the end justifies the means.

The leftist loon on the video said as much–that “our side” (and I say that loosely as I hate to ally myself with GOPers) is generally more law abiding, more principled. We don’t get down and dirty.

WHICH IS WHY WE ALWAYS LOSE, PEOPLE. 

It’s why we lost Universities.

It’s why we lost public education, in general.

It’s why we lost the media and entertainment.

Because we want to get things the RIGHT WAY, honestly.

Our best selling point–solid, ethical politics based on solid moral principles, is also our greatest weakness.

Going To The Mattresses.

I have said it before, and I will say it again–being on the higher moral ground is fine, great, and wonderful. I am all for the higher ground. BUT IF WE LOSE THIS ELECTION, THERE WILL BE NO GROUND LEFT, PEOPLE. The leftist loons already know they are facing an existential threat, and since they have far fewer morals/ethics than us, they can take by brute force what they can’t win honestly–or dishonestly.

I stopped playing nice several months ago now, and have managed to pull off a few really cool minor things in my area, because my opponents weren’t expecting me to play by THEIR rules. It’s a trick that’ll only work once with thinking people, but will work several times with the lunatic leftists–they aren’t the sharpest tools in the woodshed.

Right now, we need to do what it takes to WIN.

The Deplorable, Irredeemable Rednecks Just Won’t Go AWAY :-).

Well, Shoot…If The Shoe Fits, Wear It (PROUDLY).

My Own state Senator made his opinions of me very clear, on several occasions, over the last few years. I started out as a simple “Whacko Bird”, which might or might not be a relative of a DoDo. I don’t know, his office neglected to clarify that when I asked them.

Later on, He referred to me and others who share my opinions as “Hobbits”–though why that would be a pejorative is beyond me. After all, it was the Hobbits that did, against all odds, save Middle Earth from Sauron and Saruman.

But that wasn’t enough for him. I then became one of the “crazies” who crawled out of the woodwork when Trump came to town. And recently, this same elitist *sshat said  “don’t drive an automobile in the metropolitan area. You’re a danger to yourself and others. You’re crazy.”

Oh, The Irony….

Once again, the zombie Arizona voters turned out in droves to give Mc Cain the nomination for the GOPers, against Kirkpatrick. Well–this year, for the first time EVER–I am voting for the Dem in my Senate Race. Because, amazingly enough, Anne Kirkpatrick is in this case the “better” candidate, all things considered.

And the real irony here is the very same Mc Cain that the GOpers worked so hard to get back into his seat is the senator the party OFFICIALLY CENSURED a few years ago–for not adhering to the party’s so-called “conservative platform and values”.

And this same Mc Cain–who deliberately screens people who want to attend his few town halls, and has been known (behind closed doors, of course) to call his constituents far worse than what is listed above, also received an award–FOR CIVILITY in public life, from Allegheny College. Joe Biden got one too. Two old fossils that should have been retired a decade or two ago, and neither one all that “civil” either.

And Now, I’m Deplorable, Irredeemable, and a Redneck.

Well, guess what, Demprogs and Hillary?  I consider all three of those appellations to be compliments, coming from YOU.

I see nothing Deplorable about loving my country, and our Constitution, and wanting my government to put MY safety and interests above those of foreign nations, criminals, or banks.

I see nothing deplorable about wanting true economic growth instead of entirely unrealistic numbers, and political smoke and mirrors.

I see nothing deplorable about wanting sovereign borders, and for wanting my government to actually enforce our laws–as all government officials have sworn an other to do.

Oh, well–I’m definitely “Deplorable”–if you deplore solid conservative values, morals and ethics. If you deplore self-reliance, frugality, true equality, and personal Liberty, then I’ll be on your Ten Most Wanted Deplorable People list.

Irredeemable? Hmm.

And why would I need to be “redeemed” in the first place? There is nothing sinful, or criminal, about the populist/nationalist view of America FIRST. And as the Good Book itself points to borders and boundaries as having been established by God, wanting our border to be effectively marked and protected isn’t sinful from a religious viewpoint either.

Wanting economic opportunity for ALL Americans, of all colors, creeds, and ethnicity, isn’t a sin either. Wanting trade deals that benefit US isn’t a sin. Wanting a decrease in violent crime and needless violence and death is about as non-sinful as you can get.

Wanting personal liberty and real equality for all, instead of false divisions and protected groups isn’t a sin either. Again, quite the opposite of a sin. Our Founders built this nation on the premise that ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL. And BTW–if you receive special treatment for any reason–then you are NOT equal, by definition.

Oh, and while you’re pondering that, also ponder this: PUTTING PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT IN PLACE FOR PRESENT AND FUTURE GENERATIONS BASED ON WRONGS DONE TO PAST GENERATIONS IS POINTLESS.

The best restitution is what our constitution dictates–EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW. Anything else is at best, unconstitutional, and at worst, blatant discrimination and bigotry.

So it seems that my “sin” comes down to not agreeing with the lunatic left’s version of “America”. My “sin” is in not embracing globalism, climate change, multiculturalism, the welfare state, and open borders. My “sin” is in fighting, at every opportunity, the fundamentally flawed policies the left embrace–the policies that have led to the current horrors we see around us.

That being the case–I gladly consider myself “Irredeemable”. Thank you for noticing that I believe in what our founders gave us in the first place, and all the Liberty and Justice it provided–before the lunatic left got control….

Redneck? Since When Is The Mark Of Honest Labor Pejorative?

Wow, for people who claim to be egalitarians, and inclusive, and all that happy crappy touchy feely stuff, the lunatic left is awfully classist, and elitist, and bigoted. The term “redneck” was/is used to disparage poor white trash and sharecroppers who worked the fields, way back in the “good old days”. Around the time that honest labor began to get a bad name in certain social circles–when it was assumed that if your neck was red, you were probably inbred, under educated, crude, rude, and uncouth.

It’s right up there with “hillbilly”–aimed at poor whites specifically, but applied in the general sense to anyone who engaged in manual labor. Part of the reason we are IN THE ECONOMIC MESS WE ARE IN is because the snobbishness behind that term–and the disdain for manual jobs it highlights got some powerful people thinking it would be a great idea if we outsourced all our manufacturing to international “rednecks”, and used social and educational means to keep our own manual labor force down trodden and controlled. Then, the elites could sit back and enjoy even cheaper goods and services….

Well, I hate to disappoint the lunatic left–but I am not ashamed of honest labor of any kind. And my other half’s neck may be very red from working hard daily, for 50 years–but he is extremely intelligent, well read, moral, and polite. As a matter of fact, he has far more admirable qualities that 99.99% of the kleptocrats infesting D.C. and our local government.

I’ll take an honest redneck of ANY type over a pack of elitist academics, pusillanimous politicians, bankers, or Demprogs, thank you very much.

Because with a redneck, you know you’ll get punched in the face if you get out of bounds. Rednecks come in all types, but one characteristic they typically share is a degree of honesty that precludes back stabbing behavior.

With any of the others named–you’ll get stabbed in the back while they are actively lying to you and screwing you over.

When You Can’t Win Any Other Way–LIE. Part 2

On To The “Sex Scandals”

In Part 1 of this 2 parter, we covered the non-story of Trump’s almost 1 billion dollar tax deduction. That story, along with all the background information on the Atlantic City Chapter 11 cases, is a non-story when you look at the whole issue. Every tax person in the country, along with every self-employed person, or small business owner, understands BOTH Atlantic City AND the Tax Deduction. And they all know 2 things about them:

  1. ANYONE COULD DO THE SAME, AND MANY, MANY HAVE IN THE TOP 1/10 OF 1% OF EARNERS.
  2. THESE THINGS ARE NOT ILLEGAL. NOR ARE THEY IMMORAL.

The sheer hypocrisy of the lunatic left is astounding. They have gone on and on about the Chapter 11s–completely ignoring the hundreds of other businessmen and women who have done the same thing, including the Caesar’s Entertainment Group Las Vegas. Oh, and Aeropostale….And of course the owner of GAWKER, whose recent “sex scandal” involving Hulk Hogan ended badly. 

Speaking Of Sex Scandals….Better Late Than Never Is The Apparent Game Here….

It was only a matter of time before the rabid press and the lunatic left pulled their favorite trick out of the election campaign bag–THE DREADED SEX SCANDAL/WAR ON WOMEN.

Never mind that BILL CLINTON ACTUALLY PAID A HUGE SETTLEMENT TO AT LEAST ONE VICTIM OF HIS ASSAULTS. Now this is where the lunatic left will rush to defend this, saying he never admitted wrong doing or apologized, he just paid the settlement to get rid of her.

Well–to use one of their favorite justifications, here: If he was innocent, then he wouldn’t have paid the settlement. He would have had his day in court and won, of course.

Oh, well. We already know that if a republican–or anyone that MIGHT be a republican–had been in old Billy Boy’s position and done the same thing, the same parties would be screaming from the rooftops that the payoff was because he was GUILTY. But if one of their own does it, they apparently do so because some gold digging, fame seeking harpy gave them no choice. They HAD to settle out of court to keep the harpy from upsetting their loving spouse, children, and associates….Funny how that works out.

Never mind that HILLARY led the charge in completely discrediting, objectifying, slandering, and destroying the lives of several of her predator husband’s victims.

And in more timely news, never mind that the Obamas have entertained rappers in the White House whose music glorifies the objectification, degradation, and sexual exploitation of women. Heck, if you took out all of the F bombs, and the B word, and the references to sexual activities–you might have 6 words left in any typical rap song.

Yet Michelle Obama claims she has never heard anything like Trump. OH GIVE ME A BREAK. Oh, well, I guess she really HAS been living in a cave, under a bridge, her entire life.  She entertains, and hangs out with, people who write about and rap about nothing but the exploitation of women, killing cops, drugs, and other filth ALL THE TIME. The rap culture glorifies behaviors that makes Trump’s locker room talk seem like DISNEY material. And they do so proudly, un-apologetically, and the Obamas further the spread of that poisonous filth by praising those who make it and treating them as honored guests in the White House.

But The Truth Will Out….

Hats off to THE GATEWAY PUNDIT for the very thorough debunking of the “sex scandal” narrative the leftist loons introduced into the campaign in the 11th hour. The link above shows the value of good research. It also shows, once again, that the leftist lunatics have no issue at all with distorting the truth or flat out lying to get what they want.

ALL OF THIS IS A DISTRACTION. The Media wants people to not realize that WIKILEAKS released even more damning emails from the Clinton email stash. For those who may not have found their way to the emails yet–HERE IS YOUR LINK.

Oh, and don’t forget those very illuminating speeches to GOLDMAN-SACHS bankers

And, as the NATIONAL REVIEW points out, the REAL REASON HILLARY WAS NOT CHARGED is obvious. Obama was also hip deep in illegal hi-jinks when it came to Hillary’s private email server. We may never find out everything Obama did…..

THERE IS NO “SEX SCANDAL”. All the Real Scandals Are In Camp Clinton.

It’s painfully obvious that the Clinton campaign, and the lunatic left, with the help of the mainstream media apparatchiks, are running in full on crisis control/damage control state right now. Because it’s less than a month to the election, and Trump hasn’t gone away.

On the contrary–he’s still out there doing 2-3 rallies daily at times, and hammering away at Hillary’s terrible policy visions–furthering Obama’s “legacy”, and worse. And the media is beginning to realize that people just don’t believe them blindly any more.

It should also be noted that Billy Bush, the other main party in that ridiculous private conversation, has lost his job over it. Which is really funny, considering some of the other news personalities on NBC that have done far worse–but did not get fired.
