Welcome to part 3 of the web course. Each part will reveal a new technique on how to build consistency into your exercise routine and turn that once hated event into a consistent pleasure where you reap the benefits. Say good bye to punishment, frustration, and feelings of being overwhelmed and say hello to your new life.

Ok, we are now flying. Hopefully you have read and completed parts 1 and 2. If not, please go to the link at the bottom of this article. This next part is where we really start to deviate from what you are used to. We are going to reveal the key steps to truly making progress on your fitness quest and enjoy the process.

Like we said in part 2 of this course, if you are not enjoying the process, you are not likely to be consistent. If you enjoy what you are doing, you can be consistent forever.

Now that you have your target and why you want it from parts 1 and 2, you are ready to turn it into a reality. Remember in part 1, when we talked about writing down what you really want and not to worry if it seems unattainable and how you will not be judging yourself based on that large goal? Well, we didn’t forget.

No punishment, frustration feeling overwhelmed!

We will do our best to keep this next section short for this article. You can always get the FULL course by following the link at the bottom of this article. It’s free, so don’t let cost slow you down.

You have your goal and it is probably a big one. You might be thinking,

“How in the world can I possibly achieve that?”

The first step is to put that thought out of your mind. When you are thinking about your goal, jump right over the how you are going to achieve it, and only think about all the why’s you wrote down in part 2 and how great it is going to feel when you get there.

In this section is the only, and we mean the only time you are to think about how you are going to achieve your goal. Don’t worry, we will make it easy. You are only to think about what is your next step to achieve your goal.

And, you want your next step to be small.

The next step should be something easy and comfortably achieved in about one month or loss.

The key word is “comfortably” achieved.

You can always do more or achieve the next step faster. Don’t worry about choosing incorrectly, because we have a whole system in part 4 of this course to correct any errors.

Your body target will keep you on course, so all you have to focus on now is achieve your next step and how great it is going to feel when you achieve your body target.

Simple enough?

Please download our full course, if you want tons of examples on how to go about choosing your next step.

Your next step needs to be small and truly a next step. If you haven’t worked out for a long time, maybe your next step should be working out for 15 minutes / three times per week. You can always do more, but if you make your goal too high at first; you will be setting yourself up for defeat.

What is the number reason people fail from part 1?

“They set themselves up to lose before they even start.”

Remember, your next step is from where you are at now. If you never worked out before, have someone else build a work out program, but make sure it is something you can do and you will enjoy. Don’t worry if the program seems too small, you are building the habit of working out. You can always increase your intensity once working out has become a habit.

Finally, please, please, please make sure your doctor knows what your next step is and he or she approves of it. Your health is too important to over do it or get yourself hurt. By becoming consistent, your body will adapt. Soon …

Treadmills are complex machines with lots of parts. For you, the treadmill owner, that means lots of things that can break! Here are a few common repair jobs that you can do yourself. Treadmill repair doesn't have to be a headache.

If Your Treadmill Runs Fine … Until You Step Onto It

Your well honed exercise routine won't do you much good if your treadmill grinds to an agonizing halt every time you step on it. It's not meant to be a piece of furniture, so let's figure out how to fix it and get you running again.

Chances are, that belt is too old and worn. If you just bought the machine, it's the fault of the manufacturer, and it should be covered under warranty. If you've had it for a while, it might need to be replaced.

Now, your instruction manual will probably provide better instructions complete with pretty pictures, but here's the long and short of it. UNPLUG the machine. I'll say that again. UNPLUG the machine! Then, your treadmill will have some sort of hood that you will have to remove on the deck with a screwdriver. After you've got it open, you'll need to loosen the belt with your screwdriver and slip it off. Put the new one on just the way you took the old one off … but in reverse.

It Runs, But It Has A Mind Of Its Own!

It's tough to get the proper workout when your treadmill keeps jumping back and forth between different speeds. Sometimes a treadmill will decide to do its own thing, taking its owner on a wild bucking bronco roller coaster ride that could end in damaged body parts.

The good news is: it probably needs to be cleaned. The bad news is: it probably needs to be cleaned. Speed ​​jumps are often the result of dirty speed sensors. The electronics on the machine are maybe covered in dust and need to be polished up.

Speaking of cleaning, a little routine cleaning will go a long way towards helping your treadmill work right and extending the life of its parts. Dusting off the electronics is good; so is opening it up and cleaning the belt once in a while. You can buy lubricant and belt cleaners at your fitness supply store that will make that baby run smoother than ever.

No Problem At All Except For That Horrible Burning Smell

Something's burning. That's not right. We definitely have a problem here.

First and foremost, unplug the machine and don't even think about turning it on again. Something is rubbing against something else in a way that it's not supposed to, and it's destroying your treadmill with every step. Usually, opening the deck and readjusting the belt will fix the problem. If you bought a really cheap treadmill , it may self-destruct by cooking its insides and there's not much you can do but upgrade.

If something's burning, you may have a problem with your motor. Replacing the motor is something you can definitely do by yourself, but you have to follow your instruction manual carefully, and make sure you buy just the right replacement motor.

Know your machine, and you can fix most problems yourself. There will always be routine maintenance needed to keep it running the way it should. Treadmill repair isn't rocket science; just be sure you keep that instruction manual somewhere!

When someone mentions the word antibody, some people may know it is an immunology term, which is widely used in the biology and medical sciences. However, when someone mentions the word custom antibody, few people know it. In this article, I will give a brief introduction about custom antibody. In order to explain it clearly, I will give the definition of an antibody first.

1. What is an antibody?

An antibody is an immunoglobulin produced by a kind of white blood cell, which is called a plasma cell. It is a large Y-shaped protein in the immune system that responds to the presence of antigens like bacteria or viruses. Each antibody contains a specific "paratope" which can mark the specific "epitope" on the antigen. Under this binding mechanism, an antibody can resist or neutralize its target by other parts in the immune system.

2. When was the antibody discovered?

The custom antibodies were first mentioned in researches carried by scientists in the early 1980s. In order to speed up to explain Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, John Gribbin and Jeremy Cherfas, editors of New Scientist Magazine, brought forward a revolutionary method to study the human evolution. They extracted a blood serum protein and injected it into a rabbit. The body of the rabbit recognized the foreign protein and produced antibodies – these antibodies were specific to individual proteins.

3. How can custom antibodies help scientists?

They helped scientists to produce specific antibodies to adopt specific conditions, and the degree of the reaction indicates the extent of evolutionary relationship. This method can accelerate the speed of searching evolutionary tree of living beings and manufacturing proteins to fight disease. For example, if a patient was infected with a virus, his body will automatically produce an antibody. If the antibody is detected in time, doctors might be able to treat the patient and cure him before the virus spreads.

4. How to search for the proper one?

If you need a specific one, you can use online search engines. There are many custom antibodies suppliers which have been divided into three types. They are peptides, DNA and recombinant proteins. If you know the areas of specifically for companies that sell antibody products, go ahead to the company website straightforward to find the specific custom antibody.

After you read this article, you have gained enough information about it. When you search it online, you can find more information about it. However, be careful when you want to buy it. Now, go and have a try.

How good is your health?

Most people forget that good health is the greatest asset they can have in life.

They work hard all their lives without taking proper care of themselves

for many years until one day they break down.

Don’t wait until you’ve a nervous break down, to face the reality.

You should balance your activities with the proper amount of rest.

Some of the leading experts in the field of aging now believe that regular exercise along with the proper amount of rest may actually add years to the life span.

Results from a number of tests indicate that speed and muscular strength of many of the elderly can be extended.

Leading authorities agree that this new data is going to shatter many of the myths about aging and physical performance.

The conclusion now is that the performance and ability of the elderly has long been underestimated, diet, proper sleep and exercise along with rest and relaxation are all important factors in preserving our bodies.

Laughter is one of the best things for your mental and physical state.

People are naturally attracted to someone who has a good sense of humor.

You can develop a good outlook and a good sense of humor by associating with and surrounding yourself with pleasant happy people.

Recognize that stress is a killer. A life filled with stress can really wreak havoc on your body causing a number of illnesses such as hear attacks, strokes, asthma, gastric problems, menstrual disorders, ulcerative colitis, angina, irritable colon, increased blood pressure, ulcers, headaches, etc.

There are different types of stress such as mental, emotional and physical.

Emotional stress seems to take the greatest toll on everyone.

All stress is not bad; in fact, life would not be very interesting if it were not met with challenges.

However, too much stress, too often with no effective and appropriate outlet, does not allow the body and soul to recuperate.

You might review a typical week to see if you can identify things that might be making you anxious or causing you stress.

Once identified, stressors can be attacked and eliminated.

Are you a worrier? Chronic worriers don’t have more serious problems than others – they just think they do.

Many worriers try to cope by trying not to think about their problems, but this just makes things worse.

Doctors say that chronic worriers feel less anxious if they actually spend a half-hour a day thinking specifically about their problems.

Get plenty of exercise. People who are physically fit look good and feel good.

A good exercise regimen will lengthen your life. Improve your appearance, build self confidence and help delay the aging process.

Remember that you need to do something physical every day.

If you don’t use your joints, quite simply they’ll tighten up with age to create the stooped, bent and worn out appearance we so often associate with old age.

Studies have shown that people with arthritis experience less pain if they continue to keep their joints flexible.

As one gets older, the bones tend to get brittle which is why it is common for senior citizens to break bones and especially their hips when they fall.

Eating right, getting proper sleep and learning to relax are all very valuable in maintaining a healthy body and mind.

And keep in mind that eating healthy foods and avoiding those high in fats, sodium and cholesterol will help to decrease your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and associated problems.

May these good health news and insights help you to live a longer, healthy and happy life.

Warmly,

SIMPLE DAILY HABITS FOR HEALTH, FITNESS AND WELLNESS (70 OF THEM!)

One of the biggest road blocks that people tell me they have is time. We are all living in a super busy, wound up, go all day kind of world. Getting in eating healthy and workouts and stress reduction can actually be a challenge when you’re trying to juggle work, family, relationships and more. (Believe me – I am right there with you!)
