Oh, BABY! That Was a Great Quickie!

My desire is to inspire women in business, to aspire to be the best that they can, in all aspects of their lives. Itiel

No, not that kind of quickie.  I'm talking about the other "tension reliever".  ;)

From time to time, I like to speak on the subject of health.  Exercise is essential to living your best life as a woman.  A woman who is running a home and a business needs to stay healthy, and might I add, sexy.

Working Out is a high interest of mine.  For the past several months Jillian Michaels and Tony (P90x) have been my "buddies".  There have been some months (like this month) when my schedule is full.  I have to get my workouts in, and this is where the quickies come in handy.  I thought I share with you, what I've been doing 3x a week this month:

  • Cardio:
    30 jumping jacks
    30 jump rope
    30 jabs in sumo position (deep)
  • front and back leg lunges ( 2 sets/10 reps per lunge) w/ weights in hand
  • Cardio
  • dead lifts (2 sets/15 reps) w/ weights
  • Cardio
  • wide leg squats (2 sets/15 reps) w/ weights
  • Cardio
  • inner and outer thigh standing leg lifts (2 sets/ 10 reps per leg) w/ exercise bands- Can be done with ankle weights, or, no added resistance at all.
  • Cardio
  • Cool down

Always topping off my workout with a recovery drink.

In between days I do the Perfect Push-Up system.  This targets the arms and the Core.

To Your Health,

Enjoy Video Inspiration-Me & Family

Monday Inspiration- Eat It Up For The Week

My desire is to inspire women in business, to aspire to be the best that they can, in all aspects of their lives. Itiel

My Pearl today is Peace (it will not be given to the swine).  This morning's inbox inspiration, builds upon my foundation.  I hope you'll be inspired....

Hope you had a wonderful weekend, and looking forward to an amazing week.
Take a moment to breath and be grateful, exhale into possibilities this week by embracing
Each moment with grace, Master your now for it's all we ever have and see how things unfold
As it should.

Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.- Chinese Proverb

Constantly striving
to become more, have more, and do more can be dangerous.  When you fail to accept and embrace where you are right now,
you end up adding a tremendous amount of unnecessary stress to your life.  Pause, take a few deep breaths and exhale slowly.
As you pursue your purpose, keep everything in perspective by appreciating the gift of the present.
 You are E-X-A-C-T-L-Y where you are supposed to be.

Love and Light

Olfactory Moment

July 19

Olfactory- Of, relating to, or contributing to the sense of smell.
Moment- A specific point in time, especially the present time. OR. A particular period of importance, influence, or significance in a series of events or developments.

How significant are the moments in your life? Do you take the time to live in your moments? Do you just go about aimlessly, taking your senses for granted?

What is the Olfactory Moment? The Olfactory Moment is when you tell the readers what aroma or odor you smelled over the weekend. What memory did it recreate? Was it a scent that you may never forget, thus creating future memories of that past moment?

Did you have an Olfactory Moment this weekend?
