One of my favorite artists (Betty Wright) in the 90s had a message in many of her songs and it was, “No pain, no gain.” As I listened to Ms. Wright’s lyrics, that phrase, “No pain, no gain resonated in my mind. With fitness and wellness, many people can’t tolerate the pain and don’t want the gain. The purpose of this article is to introduce to some and present to others the new initiative of Move Something, designed by yours truly.
Move Something is the first online, out of sight, out of mind program that develops the whole person. The motto of Out of Sight, out of mind means that I will not have the opportunity to meet all of you personally, but this program will be seen, viewed and sampled by millions of people. When you hear the phrase, “Move Something,” many people have asked me, “What should I move?” The purpose of this article is to teach all of you how to obtain your resting heart rate, working heart rate and see results. The program is designed for those who are thinking about their health, those who are doing fine with their wellness and those who are on an advanced level of health.
Becoming acquainted with the Move Something program is like getting to know a person and I will be upfront with you every step of the way. If you transition into the online “Move Something,” campaign with the expectation that your body will lose fat within 5 days, which is unhealthy or that you will drink some magic tea and lose 1 pound per week, it is not happening. This program, “Move Something,” is an authentic way to build up your heart muscles, control your metabolism and to assist you in becoming healthier. The truth of the matter is a person can spend thousands of dollars to lose weight in a few weeks or drink something to lose weight immediately. What makes this program unique is first of all it is free information, secondly, the focus is on the heart and internal organs and all one has to do is move something. I correlate this program (Move Something ) to playing chess. If your internal organs are not receptive to the quick weight lose, the organs will let the body know by shutting down. This program is a natural program that encompasses everything one is suppose to do in order to become healthier. After one learns how to regulate the level of metabolism, then one can focus on tone and weight control. Another aspect of this program is the lack of focusing on weight loses, and focusing more on weight control. As I suggested, one can be very thin without being healthy and one can be thick and be healthy or vice versa. The goal Is to teach and help individuals become aware of the program and then after a few weeks of FREE online, out of sight, out of mind results, if you decide to pursue further information that is available.
In the beginning (BMI)
The beauty of Move Something is that when one decides to follow the program, one will not be too behind or too advanced. How am I able to promise that Move Something will not be too behind or too advanced for participants? I am able to promise you that the program will meet your needs because the first movement I ask participants to participate in is what I call a Body Mass Index indicator (BMI). Many people jump right into a program or fitness scene without taking this FREE test that I am going to teach to you online right now. First, the BMI is a measurement used to indicate if your weight is putting you at risk for health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
You can calculate your own BMI. The actual formula to determine BMI uses metric system measurements: weight in kilograms (kg) divided by height in meters, squared (m2).
When using pounds and inches, the formula needs to be altered slightly. Multiply your weight in pounds by 703. Divide that by your height in inches, squared:
BMI = (your weight in pounds x 703) ÷ (your height in inches x your height in inches)
For example, if you weigh 120 pounds and are 5 ft. 3 in. (63 in.) tall:
BMI = (120 x 703) ÷ (63 x 63) or 84,360 ÷ 3969 = 21.3
This is well within the healthy weight range.
Answer: I am 120 pounds and multiply that by 703 which is already given to you. You then get that answer, which is 84,360 and then you divide that by your height which would be 12X5+3 and that would equal 63 inches 63 inches+3969=21.3
This weight is well within the range of a healthy weight.
If you do not like math, you may use this website to figure out your BMI
Depending on your answer here is what the results of your health are:
18.5 – 24.9
Normal or Healthy Weight
25.0 – 29.9
30.0 and Above

Before engaging in any program, one must evaluate health according to research. After understanding what your BMI is, you will need to then focus on your resting heart rate.
The heart as everyone knows is the most vital organ in one’s body. It is the house for blood passage, breathing and life in general. The main benefit of the Move Something movement is to engage the heart. I could easily give you various resources on where to go to lose weight quick, talk to you about the numerous herbs and teas available, but none of these things can control your heart rate, nor serve your metabolism any fat burning mechanisms to rid the fat. Once again, Move Something is not a weight lose program, it is learning to control your body’s thermostat. Your resting heart rate is another tool one can use to monitor one’s level of fitness. As many of you know, your heart rate, or pulse is the number of times your heart beats per minute. Throughout my classes at Baylor University and research, the best places to find your pulse to obtain your resting heart rate are:
- Neck*-my number one place
- Knee-side of the knee
When one is getting ready to move something, you check your resting pulse for various reasons:
- Check your level of fitness
- Ensure that the blood is flowing properly before any type of fitness
According to the National institutes of Health, USA, these are some normal heart beats per minute:
Newborns (0 to 3 months) - 100 to 150
Infants (3 to 6 months) - 90 to 120
Infants (6 to 12 months) - 80 to 120
Children (1 to 10 years) - 70 to 130
People over 10 years - 60 to 100
Well trained adult athletes - 40 to 60
If you are going to begin to exercise and your heart rate is out of the zone, you may either engage in some low-intensity movements or none at all depending on how far your number is from the normal heart rate.
*When checking your resting pulse, you will want to time the pulse rate for at least two minutes to get an accurate count.
After checking to ensure that your blood rate is normal, you will want to record your findings in a journal. Once we get deep into the program, one will find that recording results will later serve as one pivotal point of relief for stress. Our next focus will be the structure of the body and what areas to target for the best results.
If you have any questions concerning finding your resting heart rate or pulse, please email me or my crew Emonya_love@yahoo.com. @jazzymedia
I will show you an example of one of my participant’s exercises to control weight.
