100th birthday celebration for Jercile Williams scheduled Tuesday – Port Arthur News – The Port Arthur News

Jercile Williams always took pride in a healthy lifestyle, her niece Dr. LaWanda Finney said.

When youd see her at 90, she would ask, can you drop down and give me a few pushups? said Finney, a Port Arthur resident. She outlived everyone in the family. She would say, Yall are supposed to be the smart ones, but you eat too much.

The healthy lifestyle has helped Mrs. Williams greatly. She will turn 100 on Tuesday.

Pelican Bay Assisted Living and Memory Care in Beaumont will host a drive-thru celebration for her starting at 11:15 a.m. Tuesday. The facility is located at 2501 S. Major Drive.

Mrs. Williams was born June 9, 1920, in Clarksville, near the Oklahoma border. She graduated from Clarksville High School and earned a bachelor of science degree from Bishop College, where she pledged Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. She went on to receive a masters degree in education from Prairie View A&M University.

Her education experience took her to Greenville, Clarksville and Dallas, where she lived 70 years. She is a member of Warren United Methodist Church in Dallas and was a Sunday school teacher.

She was an educator and principal, said Finney, a Title I/parent engagement coordinator in the Port Arthur Independent School District. She was always in the health movement. She outlived everyone in the family.

The family moved Mrs. Williams down to Port Arthur for a few months before she settled at Pelican Bay under the watch of St. Paul United Methodist Church. Thats where her brother, the late Rev. Kelly Black served and present pastor the Rev. James Berry frequently visited until the coronavirus pandemic.

Mrs. Williams enjoys dominos, completing word searches, listening to music and vising with friends and family.

Siblings included Clovis Black, the Rev. Dr. Jackie Black (who also pastored St. James), Thelma Black, the Rev. Kelly Black and James Black.

Increasing Inclination Toward Health Clubs for Fitness

The rise in awareness among millennials has resulted in an increase in expenditure on healthy lifestyle and fitness activities, which is encouraging them to join fitness clubs. Moreover, Gen X is more likely to be the consumer of health clubs than any other demographic, so health clubs are focusing to keep this consumer segment engaged, and continuing to invest in their gym and health memberships by offering personalized service offerings.

New ‘FIGHT’ club encourages healthy lifestyle | News – Evening News and Tribune

CLARKSVILLE The first rule of this fight club is that you can talk about it. In fact, you are encouraged to.

The Southern Indiana FIGHT (Friends Intent on Getting Healthy Today) Club is a new program from Clarksville Parks and Recreation thats designed to help area residents lose weight and feel better about themselves. The free, Facebook-based fitness group was created to encourage residents to look for ways to live a healthier lifestyle.

Its partly because of the COVID-19 outbreak, said Ken Conklin, of Clarksville Parks & Recreation. With people being stuck at home with nowhere to go, a lot of them are snacking and eating more than usual, some people are calling it the COVID-19 pounds.

With that in mind, many are searching for ways to get back in shape and shed those extra pounds.

Looking around you see that there are a lot of different options for people to lose weight, but they can also be expensive, Conklin said. This is very inexpensive.

The programs goal is to motivate residents with various health challenges, in-person fitness classes, healthy eating and cooking demonstrations, as well as other related special events.

The clubs first event will take place Friday night. The Glow Walk in the Park will be from 9 to 10 p.m., weather permitting, at Wooded View Golf Course. After the golf course closes, FIGHT club members will be invited to walk the courses first nine holes a 2.5-mile stroll and enjoy the evening. Participants are required to bring a flashlight and are encouraged to wear glow-in-the-dark items. Glow-in-the-dark necklaces will be given out while supplies last.

Other events are in the works, according to Conklin.

The program hopes to use its Facebook page, of which there are nearly 300 members so far, as a way to keep members motivated. Group members are encouraged to post updates about their personal successes and struggles with staying healthy.

Everyones starting to share their stories, its pretty amazing, Conklin said. Were hoping [the club] gets people outside, gets them social, once the pandemic is over, and gets them healthy.

The clubs name has also been a source of amusement, since it plays off of the title of the 1999 movie Fight Club about underground fighting that starred Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.

With our FIGHT Club the first rule is you do talk about fight club, Conklin said with a laugh.

To sign-up for the club, or for more information, go to ClarksvilleParks.com, the Southern Indiana FIGHT Club Facebook page or email FightClub@ClarksvilleParks.com.

A healthy lifestyle increases years lived without chronic disease | Maximum Wellness – WWLTV.com

Keeping a healthy BMI, maintaining your exercise and not drinking too much can give you more than 70 years disease-free and healthy, the study found.

NEW ORLEANS With Covid-19 a major player in the health care arena immune modulation, diagnostic testing, comorbidities (concurrent health issues), social distancing, masks, gloves, and so forth the controlling factor to a best outcome is to develop a healthy lifestyle.

JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) Internal Medicine published in April 2020 an original investigation Association of Healthy Lifestyle with Years Lived Without Major Chronic Diseases which sought to estimate the association between a healthy lifestyle and the number of disease-free years.

It was determined that four basic lifestyle characteristics smoking status, body mass index (weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared), physical activity level, and alcohol consumption would be compared to the number of years between 40 to 75, without chronic diseases, such as type-2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, cancer, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

In order to assess the disease impact on healthy years, the study evaluation included 116,043 people from a multicohort European population (Working Populations Consortium), who had a mean age of 43.7 years - with 70,911 women (61.1%) represented in the sample.

Participants were included in the analyses, if they were free from the 6 chronic diseases at baseline and had information available on sex, age, socioeconomic status, lifestyle factors (weight, height, smoking, physical activity, and alcohol consumption), and follow-up for chronic diseases. Study baseline ranged from August 7, 1991, to May 31, 2006, and data analysis was conducted from May 22, 2018, to January 21, 2020, as noted in the study methods.

A scoring system was established based on recognized standards. Heres how the parameters were established - directly taken from the JAMA paper.

BMI: < 25 optimal, 25-25.9 intermediate, and > or = to 30 poor; smoking: never optimal, former smoker, intermediate, and current smoker, poor; leisure-time physical activity: meeting world health organization recommendations of > 2,5 hours of moderate weekly activity or > 1.25 hours of vigorous weekly activity was optimal, activity between optimal and poor was intermediate, while no or very little moderate /vigorous leisure-time physical activity was labelled as poor.

As for total, weekly alcohol consumption (1 drink = 10 grams of ethanol), 1 to 14 (women) or 1 to 21 (men) weekly drinks was classified as optimal, no alcohol was intermediate, while > than or = to 15 drinks for women and 22 for men was poor.

The researchers then, computed an overall healthy lifestyle score by aggregating responses for the 4 individual lifestyle factors: optimal (2 points), intermediate (1 point), or poor (0 points). This scale resulted in a healthy lifestyle score ranging from 0 (lowest healthy score, highest risk) to 8 (highest healthy score, lowest risk).

It was determined that, all of the 4 lifestyle profiles that were associated with the highest number of disease-free years included a body-mass index less than 25, and at least 2 of the following factors: never smoking, physical activity, and moderate alcohol consumption. Participants with 1 of these lifestyle profiles reached age 70.3 to 71.4 years disease free, depending on the profile and sex.

Kurt Angle Focusing on a Healthy Lifestyle and New Business Post WWE Release – WrestlingWorld

In April this year, WWE released Kurt Angle along with hundreds of employees as part of the major cutbacks in an effort to stay profitable during the coronavirus pandemic.

The WWE Universe was disappointed with the sudden departure of the Olympic Gold Medalist who returned last week to officiate the cage match between Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher on NXT.

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Angle noted that the fact that his Physically Fit Nutrition business is taking off makes his sudden WWE release a lot easier to take.

Im working on my business, and Ive been doing a lot of rehab on my body, trying to get myself back to where Im able to live a healthy lifestyle. Id been so banged upmy neck, my back, and my neckbut Im making improvements. If I get to the point where I feel I can do it, then Ill probably do it. But right now, I have to focus on my body.

The Hall Of Famer further called his release a blessing in disguise to highlight how his business needs him around now that its picking up orders in a steady fashion.

It was almost a blessing in disguise that WWE released me. The business started picking up orders, and were at a point where I really need to be here.

Angle had previously turned down WWEs lucrative offer to become Matt Riddles on-screen manager due to various reasons and the timing not being right for the same.

As previously reported, Vince McMahon would, sooner than later, sign Angle to a deal since he cant afford to see the decorated athlete in AEW.

Simple and Healthy Meals to Spice Up Your Dinner Menu – Grit Daily

Working on building a healthy lifestyle and coming up with healthy food ideas can be difficult for anyone. Yes, it may be a challenge, but in life, all things come with a challenge. Eating healthy can always seem like a stressful and unpleasant thing, but I only think thats the case when you let it be.

Dont let your mind take over and present to you those unhappy thoughts about eating healthy, filter those negative thoughts out. Think about in the long run and how once you maintain this habit, it will be something that you can quickly put into your day to day routine.

Instead of making this a daunting thing lets create a good practice and making healthy dishes fun just like we enjoy making brownies or cookies lets take that same motive and apply it to make a healthy meal.

Lets make dinner time a time to sit down and not only enjoy whomever your eating with whether it may be family, a significant other, or yourself bu also the delicious food that you have prepared.

Miso-Glazed Salmon

2 tbsp white miso

2 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce

1 tsp honey

4 (5-oz) salmon fillets with skin

Firstly youre going to line a small rimmed baking sheet with a sheet of nonstick foil. Then you are going to stir together your miso, soy sauce, and honey in a cup. Once you have done that, you will place your salmon on your prepared baking sheet and spoon your miso mixture over the salmon.

Then youre going to let the mixture and salmon marinate in the refrigerator at least for 15 minutes or up to two hours turning the salmon once or twice. While you are letting your salmon marinate, you are going to preheat your oven 425F when your oven is ready place the salmon skin side down, until just opaque in the center about 15 minutes.

Turkey Fingers with Peach Sauce

Nonstick Spray

cup peach or apricot all-fruit spread

1 tsp curry powder

1 (1-lb) piece skinless boneless turkey breast

tsp salt

tsp black pepper

cup unsweetened flaked coconut, chopped

cup whole-wheat panko bread crumbs

First, preheat your oven to 425F and spray a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray. Now you are going to make your peach sauce. Grab a bowl and stir together cup of all-fruit spread and tsp of curry powder and then set that aside. Then you are going to cut your turkey into 16 strips and in a medium bowl stir together your remaining cup of fruit spread and your remaining tsp of curry powder, salt, and pepper. Add your turkey and toss until its coated evenly with the mixture.

Once thats finished, youre going to mix your coconut and panko on a sheet of wax paper and coat your turkey strips one at a time in the coconut mixture, lightly pressing so it will stick to the turkey. Then, you will arrange your turkey strips on the baking sheet in a single layer and make sure you spray with your nonstick spray. Youre going to bake until the turkey fingers are golden and cooked through, about 15 minutes, and serve with your yummy peach sauce.

Celebrate Mens Health Month with the American Cancer Society – KRQE News 13

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) June is Mens Health Month which is observed each year to raise awareness about health care, healthy living, and cancer screening guidelines. American Cancer Society Health Systems Manager, Ali Vavruska discusses Mens Health Month and the positives the public can take from it.

There are three things that can be committed to in order to live a healthy lifestyle which are good nutrition, regular exercise, and maintaining a healthy weight. It is estimated that around 20% of all cancers diagnosed in the United States are related to body weight, physical inactivity, excess alcohol consumption, and/or poor nutrition which can all be prevented.

If you are trying to control your weight, watch portion sizes, especially foods that are high in calories, sugars, and fat. Also try to limit your intake of high-calorie foods and drinks, alcohol, red and processed meats.

A good rule of thumb when youre trying to make a plate of food is the more colorful it is, the healthier it is, so add in fruits, veggies, lean meats, avocado, healthy oils, so that you have a balanced diet, said Vavruska. It is recommended that adults should work toward at least 150 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity each week or an equivalent combination throughout the week.

Thats about 20 minutes a day of moderate intensity exercise. Moderate activity includes walking briskly, jogging, tennis, bicycling, and dancing.

It is important to designate a primary care physician. Young men may not think about it when they are healthy, however, when you start to have health issues, it can be a struggle to find a doctor.

The American Cancer Society states that preventing cancer is easier than treating it. Some prevention tips include staying away from tobacco as smoking causes one in five deaths in the U.S. and is associated with at least 11 types of cancer.

Also, limit your exposure to ultraviolet light. To do this, make sure that when you are going outside, try to stay in the shade and when that is not possible, wear a shirt, put on a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least 30 SPF, and put on sunglasses.

Some cancers that most often affect men are prostate, colorectal, and skin cancers. Knowing about these forms of cancers and what you can do to help prevent them or find them early may help save your life.

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in both men and women and is a leading cause of cancer in the United States. Early stages of the cancer typically have no symptoms however, warning signs include rectal bleeding, blood in the stool, a change in bowel habits, or abdomen cramping. The American Cancer Society recommends men begin colorectal cancer screening at the age of 45 and talk with your doctor about earlier screening if you have a family history.

Except for skin cancers, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. The chance of getting prostate cancer increases as men age.

How to live longer – the best drinks to prevent an early death and avoid heart disease – Express

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a well-rounded diet is crucial to prolonging your lifespan.

You could also boost your lifespan by doing regular exercise. Its the miracle cure weve all been waiting for, according to the NHS.

Making some small diet or lifestyle changes could help to increase your life expectancy and avoid an early death.

One of the best ways to lower your chances of an early death is to have a cup of tea or coffee every day, it's been claimed.

"Moderate consumption of tea and coffee may benefit healthy ageing and longevity," said medical website Healthline.

"Just remember that too much caffeine can also lead to anxiety and insomnia, so you may want to curb your intake to the recommended limit of 400mg per day around four cups of coffee.

"It's also worth noting that it generally takes six hours for caffeine's effects to subside.

"Therefore, if you have trouble getting enough high-quality sleep, you may want to shift your intake to earlier in the day."

Meanwhile, you could also increase your lifespan by regularly eating avocado, it's been claimed.

The fruit helps the body to get rid of 'bad' cholesterol, while boosting the amount of 'good' cholesterol.

Avocados also contain lutein, which has a beneficial impact on prostate health, they added.

Everyone should consider eating half of an avocado three to four times a week.

Fat loss lessons one man learned losing 140 pounds and keeping it off – Insider – INSIDER

Losing weight is one thing, keeping it off is another.

In fact, research suggests that 80% of people who lose at least 10% of their body weight regain everything they lost, if not more.

So it's extra impressive when someone manages to sustain their weight loss.

One such person is Carter Good: In 2011, he weighed 305 pounds.

A post shared by Carter Weight Loss Coach (@cartergood)Apr 29, 2020 at 7:18am PDT

But within a year, he'd lost 100 pounds, and the year after that he lost another 40. Nine years later, Good hasn't regained the weight.

The 25-year-old from Austin, Texas, who is now a weight loss coach and qualified personal trainer, recently shared the 10 most important lessons he's learned about sustainable fat loss in an Instagram post.

Carter Good is now a qualified personal trainer. Carter Good

"I know that my weight loss is inspiring ... and so every time I share, I try to use it as a way to encourage and educate others on the right way to lose weight and get healthy," Good told Insider.

Here are the 10 lessons Carter Good learned through losing 140 pounds, and keeping it off.

Good learned the hard way about how to lose weight right.

"Initially, it was all through crazy restriction and cardio," he told Insider, explaining that he found a diet plan online and just cut the portions in half, which he now realizes was "not smart."

"Along with eating a very low-calorie diet, I would use the elliptical for 60 to 75 minutes every single day," he added.

Although this approachdidlead to weight loss, it wasn't sustainable because it was too restrictive.

"It took one to two years of education and mental growth to find more balance between my fitness goals and other life goals," he said.

It's essential to make the process enjoyable.

"Regardless of how long it takes you to lose weight, you're going to spend a much longer time maintaining a lean and healthy body," Good wrote on Instagram.

Good encourages people to understand that your weight is a tool, not your identity.

"People come to me with the goal of losing a certain amount of weight," he said. "Maybe it's a weight they used to be at, or maybe a weight their doctor recommends reaching.

"Either way, the number isn't the goal ... it's what happens when you get down to that number."

So instead of thinking about the number on the scale as the goal, focus on the habits, strategies, and routine you'll develop on the way.

Although the key to sustainable weight loss is creating a healthy lifestyle you enjoy and can thus maintain, and it's never wise to cut out every food you enjoy, youwillhave to make some changes, Good said.

"Most people struggle with their weight," he wrote.

"If you prioritize fitness, you're going to have to be disciplined. You'll often have to skip the next round of beers or pass on the late-night slice.

"That doesn't mean you can't have fun, though."

It's important still to enjoy your diet. Carter Good

The sad truth is that peanut butter, while being nutrient-dense and delicious, is also very energy-dense and easy to overeat.

"It's sad, I know," Good wrote.

"But for real. Measure that s---."

As healthy as kale and celery may be, there's no point forcing yourself to eat them if you don't enjoy them.

"Eat whole foods you enjoy," Good wrote.

"Include 'fun foods' you enjoy. You should never resent your diet."

Good wrote that as he lost weight, his cravings didn't vanish but he got "better at delaying gratification for a greater reward."

"People who are successful in fitness (and other areas of life) are the people who are able to delay gratification. Simple as that," he explained to Insider.

"Oftentimes with fitness, the 'easier' and 'more enjoyable' choice you make in the moment isn't the one that'll lead to being lean and healthy."

For example, watching Netflix on the couch is easier than going to do a workout.

"Part of becoming someone who makes fitness a priority is being able to make the harder choice in the moment that leads to a greater reward in the future," Good said.

"It's not an easy mindset to train, but the more consistent you can be from the start, the easier it gets especially once you start seeing results!"

Don't force yourself to eat healthy foods you don't like. Carter Good

"Ignore them," Good wrote.

You may be surprised by how people respond to your weight loss.

"Just like anything worth having," Good wrote.

Don't rush the process.

Good wrote that investing in your health and making fitness a priority is worth it because not only does it lead to feeling and looking better, but it allows you to do better for the people in your life.

"Losing weight has taught me about hard work, discipline, and delayed-gratification, which has helped me in so many other areas of my life," Good said.

"For example, if it wasn't for fitness, I would have never believed in my ability to build and grow my own business.

"It's also taught me that I can accomplish anything I want in life. I just have to be willing to work hard, be patient, and refuse to quit."
