Dreams of Defying Gravity

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

I have dreams in which I'm running and then I become lighter and lighter. I defy gravity and float up in the air.. still can land and each step I fly/float higher and go further. I wish it was really like this.

My mother recently joked with me that when I get down to my ideal weight I'll just float around the circle. Well, it may seem like it, but I'm afraid I'm still going to be disappointed that gravity has such a firm hold on me still and that I won't really float up in the air with every step, leap, and bound..

But the dream sure is nice.. and I am getting lighter every day, metaphorically, metaphysically, and physically.

    What a lovely dream to have. You really are making it happen! Gravity always has a hold on us but less so with even the smallest amount closer to our ideal weight that we reach. Huzzah! Congratulations on all your good work!

    As you keep moving, you ARE getting lighter and lighter! You may not float; but you'll definitely move with greater ease. May you exceed your wildest dreams!

    You feel 10 times lighter when you let go of as much stress and anxiety as possible. You also sleep better (looks in the mirror on this one) even if the time is the same the quality is better.

Your doing awesome Angel. Keep going lady. inspire the masses!

Dance Party Part 2 - and Kegel Challenge

Tuesday, June 19, 2012


The song is "Hungry Like the Wolf" by Duran Duran

This is the third song of a Dance Party set, but all three together was too long a vlog. The first two were posted before this. This one has more talking, esp. after the song. I talk about 2.5 min. after the song is over.

Do you get "hungry like the wolf" during your time of the month? OMG I do.. and I need to eat meat then, but rarely eat meat other times of the month. I don't eat much of any beef ever, but I got lean ground turkey and made turkey burgers today and created a recipe from several here on SparkRecipes. I posted it, too. Check yesterday's nutrition tracker and you can find it.. Wait.. can I get the link? Yes!

recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.asp?recipe=2146665

There it is! Even my picky eater son loved it!

Challenge- Do 2 sets of 15 kegels. :) Vlog in the last 2.5 minutes discuss kegels and how to do them.

    I saw Duran Duran in the 80s too...lol!!

Kegels after childbirth helps get your insides back in shape...I was doing them on the delivery table right after my first born and my doctor gave me crap...I hadn't finished delivering the afterbirth...LOL oops :)

By the way...you probably need more iron if you crave beef during your period...that may explain your low energy levels too...it takes a lot of time to get your iron levels up but a really short time depleting them.

BTW kegel is pronounced KEEE GAL
do kegels WHILE have sex....they notice!!! LOL

Simple Secret to Flatter Abs and Better Sex!

Monday, June 18, 2012

OMG you aren't going to believe this one! But I'm going to try it. The Simple Secret to Flatter Abs it is called - from the website Diet.com.. and the secret is doing Kegels! Well, they'll help your sex life as well as your abs! It is supposed to reduce the stomach pooch, too. I had no idea they could do anything to enhance your appearance, but had thought about adding them to my routine anyhow. LOL! See the 1.5 minute long video for more info, esp. if you don't quite know what a kegel is. It is child-safe, btw. I mean, the LINK and video are.. Oh stop with the dirty minds! Go work out. :)

diet.com/videos/play/the-simple-secr
et-to-flatter-abs


In another video on this diet.com site I learned that if we are doing a lot of crunches and front ab work-outs, but not doing equivalent back exercises, we can create more of a stomach pooch. We need to work out the back as well - like by doing the back extensions and bridges and cobras and superman and swimming exercises. I am going to do more to exercise my back for the core exercises to balance things out. Balance is the whole key.

    Well, I learn something new every day! I knew kegels would good for sex, but not the abs. Woohoo. Multi-tasking is good! And yes, kegels do help with bladder control. After 4 kids, that's something I deal with. Ugh.

And great info on the core workouts. I didn't know that either. Very good to know since I suffer from a pouch as well as back issues. Need to work on that.
