My Fitness Pal Midterm Paper

Food Diary After completing four weeks worth of my fitness pal diary entries, I have come to realize that I am not the healthiest eater in the world. My calories were all over the place and sodium was off the charts! I am not a super active person, but I do always fill my day with errands, work and school. So trying to slow down and actually track what I was eating and how little or how much was pretty rough. I started my journey with absolutely no care in the world, basically my normal routine. Eating whatever I wanted, when I wanted and for however long I wanted. I ate a lot of bagels and fast food. None of which was healthy, but down the hatch it went. But then the my fitness thing kept telling me that I wasn’t eating enough! I usually would only get 2 meals in a day, because of my overnight shifts at the hospital. At the end of week one I had accumulated 10,870. My average intake for the week was 1,552 of my allotted calories of 1700. So I was under. This is astounding as I feel like I eat a lot! My second week I was determined to eat a bit more meals, if I could fit them in. I got a all three meals for every day, so I felt that I was making a bit of progress. I ended the week with a total calorie intake of 12,243 though. That was more than the week before with 3 meals a day. It gave me an average of 1749 for the week which was good. This put me in a position to where I hoped the exercise would even me out. I felt like a fatty eating that much. On the third week, I kept eating the 3 meals a day but focused on my calories burned a bit more. I was drinking water almost exclusively, but still eating a lot of junk food. It tastes so good! My total calories went down but my sodium intake was huge. I ate a lot of meaty items. I honestly did not track this…...

...Finding the Leader in You: Self-Assessment / Johari Window Shawnique Small Mr. James Bankston BUS 520 – Leadership and Organizational Behavior July 17, 2013 This paper will address issues of personal understanding, planning, and professional development. It will analyze a self – assessment, which will enable me to understand how intuitiveness, culture, diversity, and leadership style influence decision making. This paper will also use the Johari Window which emphasizes that we may not be aware of everything that there is to know about ourselves. Personality is defined as the overall combination of characteristics that capture the unique nature of a person as that person reacts to and interacts with others. To develop a profile of my personality characteristics, I used the Big Five Personality Dimensions. The Big 5 are defined as the following: Extraversion (outgoing, sociable, assertive), Agreeableness (good-natured, trusting, cooperative), Conscientiousness (responsible, dependable, persistent), Emotional stability (unworried, secure, relaxed), and Openness to Experience (imaginative, curious, broad-minded). According to The Big Five Personality Test (www.outofservice.com/bigfive/results), the following are my results: Openness to Experience / Intellect – I am somewhat conventional, which means that I am down to earth, I have narrow interests and that I am uncreative. Conscientiousness – I am very well organized, and......

Also, taught in this book is ways to avoid some of the major communication disconnects. It discusses such topics:"negative assumptions," "talking about yourself," "talking too much," "using jargon," and "defensiveness and blame."

...recent study of 460 drivers age 70 and over by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 75% of those drivers had uncorrected vision problems. Answer: The report of the ‘traffic safety administration’ reported that 75% (345 people) was the reported statistic from the 460 drivers of 70 or older drivers. I feel the assumed parameter would be the population of drivers that had uncorrected vision that were 70 years old or older. 4.

...Fitness and Nutrition Paper SCI/100 Fitness and Nutrition Paper Fitness and nutritional habits should be more regulated in the United States. American’s are becoming less healthy each year causing more obesity across the country. People are not as active, making poor eating choices, staying indoors more often and always on the run resulting in an unhealthy and less active society. Simply by changing our daily habits by encompassing healthy meal plans and exercise we can change this ongoing issue making for a longer healthier life for generations to come. As for my current fitness and nutritional habits, they have suffered in the past six to nine months. My health and wellness has been a roller coaster for many years. I have been eating on the go, never working-out and essentially doing whatever was quick, easy, and convenient. I have had some personal life changes which have made all this change in the past month or so. I have known I’ve had high blood pressure for over 20 years as it is hereditary in my family. Most recently I have had spells where I would almost pass out, dizzy and become very light headed. After visiting the Doctor he recommended performing a stress test and EKG which showed at some point I had had a mini-stroke. I feel this was a wakeup call to get my life back on track and to stay on track for the duration of my life. My wife and I have begun to plan out my weekly meals with the consultation of a certified trainer and we have been......

My Physical Fitness

...My Physical Fitness as a College Student “Health is wealth,” as the old saying goes. The most precious thing from everything we have is our life, and that includes our health as well. Most of us college students take our health for granted. Amidst to the fact that we are only humans and we get tired too, we immerse ourselves into the stress and pressures of our school works, projects and examinations. There are points in our college life that we fill our tummies with only biscuits in order to finish something. In a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest, probably my physical fitness as a college student is at 3. I started getting fat during my high school years and I blame my sweet tooth for that because I am really into sweets. The perks of being a young woman encouraged me to be more conscious of myself and my body as well. Upon entering college, I started having Zumba at home following a video I downloaded from Youtube. During my first few weeks in college, I make sure to make it a habit to have Zumba every morning for atleast 30 minutes. Luckily, I lost pounds. When the college life started to heat on with all the works needed to finish, sometimes I already skip exercises. However, during my spare time I conduct simple exercises just to sweat up a little bit and stretch. I am not much strict to my eating habits because simply I love to eat. I am more strict on my intake of rice. I make sure that I only eat 2 cups of rice every day. I also drink tea every morning......

...stopper. But what should a politics of consumption look like? A right to a decent standard of living. This familiar idea is especially important now because it points us to a fundamental distinction between what people need and what they want. In the not very distant past, this dichotomy was not only well-understood, but the basis of data collection and social policy. Need was a social concept with real force. All that's left now is an economy of desire. This is reflected in polling data. Just over 40 percent of adults earning $50,000 to $100,000 a year, and 27 percent of those earning more than $100,000, agree that "I cannot afford to buy everything I really need." One third and 19 percent, respectively, agree that "I spend nearly all of my money on the basic necessities of life." I believe that our politics would profit from reviving a discourse of need, in which we talk about the material requirements for every person and household to participate fully in society. Of course, there are many ways in which such a right might be enforced: government income transfers or vouchers, direct provision of basic needs, employment guarantees, and the like. For reasons of space, I leave that discussion aside; the main point is to revive the distinction between needs and desires. Quality of life rather than quantity of stuff. Twenty-five years ago quality-of-life indicators began moving in an opposite direction from our measures of income, or Gross Domestic Product, a striking......

...enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk. To me personally the term means someone who can run a business that is strong minded, a risk taker, and is not afraid of failure. This paper will tell you more about what these 3 characteristics mean. Being strong minded is so important for someone who is an entrepreneur for many reasons. You have to stay positive when things go wrong and stay focus when things are good. My uncle for example owns a business and is an entrepreneur himself, he tells me every day how hard it is to stay strong minded. This is one of the characteristics of the word entrepreneur. The term entrepreneur goes way back to the late 1700’s in which the term first appeared in the French dictionary in 1723 to describe a person who organizes and operates a business by taking a financial risk. Which shows you that taking risks is important in becoming a successful entrepreneur. You can look at successful business men who are entrepreneurs and I guarantee they have had to take so many risks. Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran turned a $1,000 loan into a $5 billion-dollar real estate business that she sold for $66 million back in 2001. That just goes to show you that you can’t be afraid to take risk. An important part of my definition to this term is that you have to be ready to struggle and fail at times. Richard Branson said it best “Few first ventures work out. It is how a beginning entrepreneur deals with failure that sets......

...Bricketto​ Rodemann Econ Tuesday and Thursday 2nd 12 Febuary 2012 The Catch Up   During the month of September italys government sold a slug of five year old paper at one of its usual bond auctions. there was hardly enough demand for the bonds to meet supply even we a steep interest rate. contrast that with the sale in august of 20 billion yuans, which is 20 billion in us dollars, of paper by China in hong Kong;s fledgling offshore market. the yield was miserly yet there were bonds for sale.            ​This tale of two bonds auctions is a parable for the contrasting fortunes of near stagnant rich economies and fast growing emerging markets. twenty of the 82 econmics covered in the back pages of the Economist grew by 3% or more in the year to the latest quarter. only two, of these, Austria and Sweden, are from the traditional group of rich ones, such as Taiwan and Hong Kong. The IMF's the latest forecast is that emerging economies will grow by more than 6% in 2011 and 2012. But growth in the rich world is likely to be below 2%.            The other half lives is the rotters economic news over that summer and depending euro-zones mess mean it is easy to forget that countries that now account for half the worlds output and most of its population are doing rather well. that is the focus of my special report on the world economy.

...Functions of Management Paper MGT/330-Management: Theory, Practice and Application July 4, 2010 Matthew Jordan Functions of Management Paper Management is the key to accomplishing organizational goals. With effectiveness (achievement of the goals) and efficiency (achievement of goals while utilizing resources such as money, time, materials and people without waste), it can be the difference between great management and poor management. While great managers are able to focus on both criteria, others are only capable to focus on one and not the other. Unfortunately, there are poor managers who are unsuccessful at both. These two criteria, however, are not the only components to successful management as the circumstances surrounding the process of conducting business are changing in today’s business world. “The great executives not only adapt to changing conditions but also apply-fanatically, rigorously, consistently, and with discipline-the fundamental management principles,” (Bateman & Snell, 2009). Included in these fundamentals are the four traditional functions of management: planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. When applying these fundamentals to the process of accomplishing organizational goals, effective and efficient management is inevitable. The first function of management is planning. Specifying the goals of the organization takes place in planning as well as its necessary actions needed in achieving those goals. Activities of......

...Lifetime Fitness/Well – PEFT 101 CFW February 19, 2012 Good flexibility is extremely important in a good exercise program. According to the American College of Sports Medicine (2003, p. 10) “flexibility is the ability to bend joints and stretch muscles through a full range of motion”. During the first week of PEFT, the class performed the Sit and Reach flexibility test. This test measures the flexibility of the lower back and the hamstrings. My stretching reached 4 inches on this test, which equates to an excellent rating. According to the American College of Sports Medicine (2003) performing regular stretching exercises such as touching the toes and holding the stretch for a minimum of 10 seconds will improve flexibility. Having good flexibility will allow for less injuries and faster recoveries from strenuous work-outs. Grip strength measures overall body strength. This was also measured during the first week of class and my rating was superior with a score of 43 kgs. in my dominant hand. According to Professor Renaud, “a healthy adult should perform 1 set of 8-12 reps on 8-10 machines”. Those numbers can vary depending upon the reference. According to Incledon (2005) a healthy adult performing a moderate workout should do 3-4 sets of 8-10 reps on a variety of at least 5 machines or free weights. Muscular strength and endurance are important in everyday life because it not only makes you look better, but you simply feel better knowing you are improving......

And said she had a eating disorder which she struggle with for so long I didn’t believe it and, though at the time it was her fault and chose to live this lifestyle. As I got older I was in medical school for my LPN Licensing after studying, I realize it was a sickness and got to understand why a person would go thought this after working with this patient who had an eating disorder. She telling why and when it started it comes from the inside and how other feel, meaning not getting the right encouragement or having low self-esteem. And no one every notice she had this problem and it continued, in till she made the first step to change.

...not sufficient for the activity. The techs voice their frustration that they have worked on the documentary for two weeks and are still not complete. Additionally, under the modern theory of strict liability, there is tort risk under the defect in packaging portion of the doctrine. As stated by Cheeseman (2010),”Manufacturers owe a duty to design and provide safe packages for their products” (p. 102). The sharp metal in which the technician cut her finger seems to violate this duty in that she claims there is no warning label. She did not receive medical treatment and simply put a tissue on the affected area when it occurred. However, two weeks later, there was still indication of injury. This implies it was more than a small scratch or paper cut. Although both of these violations of the tort doctrines are important to the business manager, the widest ranging is the misrepresentation by the seller that the product will decrease the time spent on editing. This misrepresentation can be mitigated through a seven-step process. Seven Key Elements of Enterprise Risk Management To establish a system of mitigating risk factors in an organization, enterprise risk management (ERM) may be implemented. Harb (2008) believes that ERM is becoming increasingly important because of several factors, including corporate financial failures, a low percentage of insurable risks, limited capital resources, and uncertain emerging risks.
