It’s football season. Tailgate parties, 10 cent wings and two dollar drafts on Monday nights, and 18 weeks of Sundays glued to the TV with one hand on the remote, and the other hand jockeying your favorite snack chip between guacamole and queso dip.

What better time and what better sport to help illustrate what you have to do to win the battle of the bulge. Imagine you are an offensive coordinator for your favorite team. To score points and beat your opponent, are you simply going to run the ball up the middle every play? Too many “offensive coordinators” treat their workouts this way and wonder why they are not scoring enough “touchdowns.” The same 20 minute jog on the treadmill along with 10, 8, and 6 reps of the bench press is not going to produce many game winning drives.

n1570263714_133720_5851The team at Train With Corey firmly believes that the waistline war is best won as a war of attrition. . .with a relentless onslaught of a variety of exercises, angles, speeds, equipment, and rep ranges where every minute of the sessions are maximized. By keeping the workouts fresh each session with different exercises and techniques (everything from pilates, to boxing, to medicine ball throws plus everything in between), the muscles are isolated and confused to prevent stagnation and plateaus. So now the “runs up the middle” are accentuated with “quick slants”, “naked bootlegs,” and “deep bombs,” (sticking with the analogy) in a “hurry up offense” which results in calorie-crushing winning workouts. Let the post-game celebrations begin!6532_1146545475061_1570263714_389495_6887982_n

So what’s your choice? An invigorating strength and cardio challenge that changes workout to workout…

“I had to fix a lot of things this morningHealth Care Reform-interests killing it 07-27-09
‘Cause they were so scrambled
But now it’s okay
I tell you I’ve got enough to do”

“Busy Doing Nothing” – The Beach Boys”

It feels like a new lie about health insurance reform crops up each day. Government taking over all health care? Not true. Euthanasia for seniors? Couldn’t be more false. Rationing of care? Reform will stop rationing, not increase it.

These lies create fear and anger, and we’re seeing the results around the country. Frightened crowds have flooded town halls, and the office of a Georgia representative was defaced with a swastika.

It’s time to set the record straight — and, more importantly, expose the special interests and partisan attack organizations behind the lies and misinformation.

That’s why we created our new “Setting the Record Straight” site. Check out the site today and then spread the word to your friends.

Visit Setting the Record Straight

As the site makes clear, these lies are no accident. They’re part of a deliberate plot by the special interests who profit from the status quo to kill any reform at all. While Americans watch their paychecks dwindle, their coverage disappear, and their businesses struggle, special interests are trying to scare folks into opposing reform.Leslie_Thompkins

Our “Setting the Record Straight” site has all the info you need to fight back, as well as easy ways to get involved in the fight for health insurance reform. We’ll be updating it often with new information debunking health care lies, so stop by regularly.

As we learned during the campaign, lies like these can spread like wildfire through viral emails and from friend to friend. The best way to stop them is to arm yourself with the facts — and make sure your friends and family know the truth.

Check out the site, and share it with everyone you know:

1287777170_ceef0d8d58_oAmericans spend more on health care than people do elsewhere, but somehow we spend more for less.

Most of us have no clue about the actual cost of our medical care until the bills arrive, because hospitals and doctors don’t publish their charges. The cost of insurance goes up and up, with fewer services covered. Millions of Americans needlessly suffer or die from preventable medical errors and infections.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Costs can come down and quality can improve if we stop letting the insurance companies run the show, make billing clear and simple, and focus on prevention and managing chronic illness better.

You can make a difference by taking our pledge and joining our effort to make health care a top priority for our nation’s leaders.

I want to join with other Americans to support action, answers and accountability. It is time to:

* * Give my family security that we will have quality care when we need it at a cost we can afford;
* * Make hospitals and doctors more transparent about the cost and quality of care they offer;225px-Unclesam_comics
* * Eliminate unnecessary bureaucracy between patients and the care they need;
* * End long waits for care;
* * Examine all solutions that will ensure all Americans access to quality, affordable care, with input from real people like me.

‘I was lyin’ in my room and the news came on t.v.superman2
A lotta people out there hurtin’ and it really scares me

Hey love and mercy that’s what you need tonight
So, love and mercy to you and your friends tonight…”

“Love and Mercy”- Brian Wilson

Did you see today’s breaking news? A former health insurance executive just went on record saying that right-wing mobs at town halls are the result of “stealth efforts by health insurance companies.”1 And The Huffington Post reports that dirty energy companies are helping bankroll the mobs.2

It’s infuriating—but the good news is that everyday folks are fighting back. And the great news is that we’re making strides. In city after city, MoveOn Councils are proving to the media that the vast majority of Americans support the change agenda that President Obama ran on.

As we ramp up our “Real Voices for Change” campaign, here are some recent inspiring stories from MoveOn Councils around the country:

* We’re keeping it positive. At a town hall in Charlottesville, Virginia, national media were expecting a hostile and extremist crowd—but Rep. Tom Perriello was met by a large and very friendly group. NBC reported, for the most part the crowd was subdued and in support of reforming the system.3 An event with Rep. Joe Sestak in Philadelphia, where the local MoveOn Council helped to turn people out, was “overwhelmingly civil.”4 In Denver, at a high-profile event with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a few right-wing protesters compared President Obama to Hitler—but progressive protesters vastly outnumbered them.5

ReaganAndSuperman* We’re making direct contact with decision-makers. At a Jobs Fair in northwest Indiana, Council Coordinator David Lambeth handed a flyer supporting a REAL public option directly to Senator Evan Bayh—a key vote on health care reform—and had a quick conversation with him. The Council had organized a flyering event at that Jobs Fair precisely to create such a face-to-face opportunity.

* The media is taking notice. Our signs and footage from MoveOn events are all over the news, including several national spots on MSNBC and NBC Nightly News (one of the most-watched shows on TV). And in one wild moment, conservative Tom Tancredo—a former Colorado congressman—actually waved a MoveOn health care sign on MSNBC!

* We’re getting good responses from members of Congress—even in “red” states. In Johnson County, KS, the Council organized a “honk and wave” outside of Rep. Dennis Moore’s office. (Rep. Moore is a “blue dog” who supports the public option.) As Organizer Ian Rogers reported:

Despite some right-wing protesters who showed up and tried to disrupt the event, the members stayed strong and their efforts paid off. About twenty minutes after the right-wing protesters showed, Rep. Moore himself drove by theheathcareprotest2 honk and wave. He honked, the tea-baggers booed, and Moore gave the thumbs up to our people and honked again.

Thank you so much for all you’re doing to push back against the misconception that right-wing extremists speak for all of us. And there’s much more to do in the weeks ahead—keep it up.

From the SingleWoman.com website …..

If you are a single woman, right now you are the forgotten constituent in this very important healthcare reform debate.

202px-Loislane_comicsIn previous articles, we’ve explained that single women in their twenties – pay more than men the same age.

(I guess that’s a way for our insurance companies to tell us that we’re high maintenance. That’s okay: they are slowly taking away the once-included- in- your-premium preventative healthcare that makes that an issue — you know, things like pap smears and and mammograms.)

And despite paying more than our male counterparts, we also make less than them, which means healthcare costs are a bigger portion of our overall income.

Isn’t any surprise that many women can’t afford any healthcare at all?

So, who is keeping you from getting a government-paid benefit enjoyed by every other First World country?

Your elected officials. These are the same people who have their own, generous healthcare plans — thanks to you, who voted them into their positions.

Worse yet, they are being paid by our insurance companies, the pharmaceutical companies, and hospital corporations to make sure we never get the one thing every other government on earth offers its citizens: free healthcare.175126-wonder-woman_400

These companies are also sending mobs to shout down any town hall meetings where the issue of a government healthcare option can be discussed.

Well, we  have a voice, too.

Don’t be shouted down.

// Sign our petition here.

Our goal is 100,000 signatures by Labor Day, which we will then present it to the Senate and the Congress.

The simple truth: it’s now or never. If our elected officials know we’re watching the money flowing from us and to them, if they know our next vote will be to their competitors, they’ll have to listen to us.

So make your voice heard.
