Travel A lot? Get A Jump Rope To Stay In Shape

Jumping rope is such a great exercise for most people. If you have bad knees or have had spinal surgery like myself it's not such a great idea.

Before my surgery jumping rope was a staple exercise. While training for kick boxing I learned to really appreciate all the jumping rope does for you. It's one of the primary tools used to train with. 

When I traveled I always carried a jump rope in my suitcase. You can get a great workout where ever you are. 

If your looking for some thing new to add to your workout or are already using a jump rope and just need a new one I selected one that's "for women" on Amazon.com.

So there you go! Another product tip!

Hand Squeeze Balls Are Fantastic!

Okay this is the first product I'm going to recommend to you.

After my surgery I was able to regain some strength in my hands and arms with a squeeze ball.

In the martial arts we use them to be able to get a good grip so we have the hand strength to put others into controlling locks.

They give you beautiful forearms!

They also help with carpel tunnel plus are a healthy outlet for stress.

Instead of grabbing a cookie you can grab your squeeze ball LOL.

In the car waiting for traffic you can squeeze the ball...hey there's lots of ways you can benefit from these simple inexpensive exercise balls!

We're On I Tunes!

My podcast got picked up by i tunes!

Must be the luck of the Irish...I just sent it in at midnight so it took less than a day!

It did have a hick up.

I did two versions for you on my podcast website. One has pictures. It's called an "enhanced" ma4 version. It requires "quick time" which not all people have so I also did a more standard version called an mp3 so everyone can hear the episodes. I tunes put both on my page and labeled them 2 episodes opppps!

I sent some emails out to see what I can do. It's a good problem :)

This is exciting! Hope you'll give it a visit.

Practice Using Positive Words

My first podcast is about the "Power of Positive Thinking and Healthy Patterns". It's such a great subject!

Using words wisely is daily practice for me.

My husband told me doctors practice medicine.

His words were very correct.

Doctors can't be perfect or have just the right answer for each situation because each person and each situation is different...but they keep working at their craft, they practice.

So I keep working at my craft. I practice using positive words as much as I possibly can.

The twelve step program used for many addictions has some powerful words...one day at a time. That is a fantastic sentence to adopt for yourself. One day at a time.

Practicing to speak to yourself and others can be done one day at a time.

Just a little note to put in your mind :)

Movies And Courage?

Courage is a great thing to have. Not all of us come with the same dose of courage.

I love the lion on the Wizard of OZ. I think of him often when I'm going out on the limb and need a story to help me walk through to the other side of the situation whether it be a relationship matter, a goal I've set or a work related challenge.

There are many movies that can teach you a lot of great information. Good up lifting stories can help take you to places you need to go.

Instead of listening to the negative story your head is telling you, thinking of the plot of special movies can be almost as helpful as therapy.

Some therapists use movies to teach their clients. Jesus was a story teller.

I'm trying to rev up my courage to keep going with all the new projects I'm working on.

If you're trying to face a new challenge and need some courage try watching a movie that inspires you to get going. Maybe watching it every day for a bit. I do that sometimes.

Lunch and my inspirational movie!

Tough Days

Some days are tougher than others.

Yesterday I had to make myself do everything. I wanted to put my head back under the covers and stay there. Those days happen.

Some times I do just that...stay in bed and read or watch silly TV just to get a needed rest. Yesterday wasn't about rest it was about avoidance. On days like that I just make myself behave lol.

I woke up this morning pleased that I didn't allow myself to hide and waste the day.

Keep it going and take care of yourself. Visit sites that encourage you and read books that get you going, talk to friends that have positive attitudes, do what you need to do on your tough days so you keep your journey to health going!
