After six decades of top charting singles, Country legend Hank Williams Jr. shows no signs of slowing down with the release of his new album IT’S ABOUT TIME(Nash Icon Records). The dynamic entertainer made appearances this week on TV’s biggest talk shows, performing his current smash single “Are You Ready for the Country” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and sharing the stage with good friend Whoopi Goldberg on The View for a highly buzzed about and soulful duet of “Wrapped Up, Tangled Up in Jesus (God’s God It).”
“My name is Bocephus!” barked Hank Williams, Jr., halfway through last night’s performance of “Are You Ready for the Country?” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The song’s next line — “And my name’s Chief,” normally delivered by duet partner Eric Church — was missing, but Williams made up for the slimmed-down guest list by refocusing the audience’s attention on his live band, a swampy seven-piece that played Neil Young’s 1972 hit with appropriate doses of grease and grit. He also invitedCBS This Morning’s Jan Crawford to his home in Troy, Alabama for an intimate interview
Reaching your target weight or ideal fitness level may be the ultimate thrill in your health journey. But to ensure you do in fact get to that point, it’s crucial that you pay special attention to all the steps in between. Tracking your progress as you work towards your health and fitness goals is a great way to improve your chances of success.
A food diary could be the success recipe for shedding those unwanted kilos Several studies have shown that people who keep food diaries lose more weight than people who don’t. Keeping a daily food diary helps you to be aware of what you eat, so that you don’t fall into the trap of ‘mindless’ eating. By making note of everything that you put into your mouth, you become more aware of your food choices and get a more accurate picture of what you eat on a daily basis. This, in turn, can help you make the right decision when you’re tempted by that huge slice of chocolate cake waiting in the fridge.
Boost your fitness levels by keeping an exercise diary We all know how good exercise is for our health, and yet few of us do as much exercise as we should. Keeping an exercise diary can act as a powerful motivational tool and help you to achieve your fitness goals by making you aware of how much (or how little!) exercise you are really doing on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. It also makes it easier to track your progress and to plan your future workouts.
Old school or gadget crazy? Keep track the way that suits you Although there is a vast array of new gadgets and gizmos on the market today, there’s nothing wrong with simply taking a pen and notebook and writing down the exercises you’ve completed or the food you’ve eaten. As long as you’re honest in your entries, you don’t need to spend vast amounts of money on the latest health and fitness tracking products. However, if you are tech savvy, there are a variety of gadgets available that can help you achieve your health and fitness goals. • A pedometer is a relatively affordable and simple device that will help you keep track of how many steps you have taken each day. • A normal household weighing scale makes it easy to keep track of your weight.
However, if you have more money to spend you could consider investing in a wireless scale, which keeps track of your personal weight and body mass index (BMI) charts using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technology. • Calorie counter watches or wristbands provide estimates of calories burned based on personal traits such as gender or weight. • Running heart rate monitors measure heart rate, speed and distance with great precision. It also allows you to store information about previous sessions. • Fitness trackers are the more expensive option, but they keep a comprehensive record of all of the above – from calories burned to steps taken and distance run. It can also monitor your heart rate and measure hours slept and quality of sleep, and keep a careful log of this information.
Whatever your goal, there’s an app for that! Today there are literally hundreds of apps available on your smartphone that can help you keep track of your diet and exercise goals. Open your app store and have a look under the ‘Health and Fitness’ category – you may be amazed at what you’ll find! Some smartphones even come with a fitness tracker app pre-installed! So why wait?

Worry is our most useless emotion. it is unproductive and dangerous. Sometimes it may prod me into taking action to save myself, but even then there is no guarantee that my actions will be effective, because I do not think rationally when I am consumed with worry. Most of the time worry disables me, locks me in my room, separates me from those who would be willing to help. It convinces me that I am unworthy, or stupid, or unforgiven – all lies of the devil, not Your judgements . Being concerned about my future is one thing, letting worry cripple me is a lack of faith. You know what I need. Lord, and You will provide, about.
Therefore take no thought, saying What shall we eat?
What shall we drink? or Wherewithal shall we be clothed?…
for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. Matthew 6:31-32
