My secret for getting in shape FAST!

It’s the new year! 2017 is gone and 2018 is here!  What are your new years resolutions?

 

I don’t know about you, but I have big plans for this new year. 

Part of the -40 F Below Club

 

I am determined to live my life to the fullest. 

That means that I need to be in the very best health I can be.

That is why I decided to get back in shape.  I have a secret weapon that got me back in shape FAST and I’m going to share it with you.

I ordered my exercise machine off Amazon, the Gazelle Supreme, so that I can work out at home while watching school lectures on my iPad. That way, I don’t have any excuse to not work out!  It’s hard being in school full time and working full time, but I’m determined to stay in shape while I do everything.

I love the Gazelle because it’s easy on my joints (I can’t run thanks to years of dance training wrenching my knees and ankles), it gives me hard core cardio workout and I also get a great all body strength training workout.  No more excuses!  I told myself that NOW is the best time to get in shape, and this is the easiest way I’ve found.

Now, I don’t have to leave my house to get a badass workout and/or need to jump around to some workout program. And this machine is seriously good for my butt.  After using the Gazelle 4-5 times for 30 min I’m-not-kidding when I say my entire butt is lifting and is more solid and I can feel the toning and lifting going on up the back of my legs.

(Ever tried to go to the gym after work and after the grocery store when It’s -30F BELOW outside?  It’s not fun.  It’s dark here in Alaska where I live for 22 hours a day in the winter and just simply going outside  means you have to dress up in a million layers and warm your car for at least 10 minutes before you drive it.  It’s so much EASIER to work out at home AND I get to study at the same time.)

 

Here’s a link to the same Gazelle Supreme that I ordered on Amazon.  I bought the supreme model because of the suspension and muscle building resistance it offers that the other models don’t.

I currently live in Alaska and I just want to say how much I love Amazon and Amazon prime shipping.  Here in Alaska our shopping choices are limited.  My Gazelle showed up quickly, even during the Christmas season and I didn’t have to pay any shipping thanks to Amazon Prime. Life is good!

I also ordered protein powder since I want to build muscles and melt off some of this fat I’ve accumulated since moving back to Alaska.

I don’t use soy protein powder since I believe ingesting any kind of soy products can be dangerous to our hormonal system.  I believe disrupting the body’s hormones is a big cause of cancer (I’ll put up a blog post about this soon).

I instead choose whey protein because my body accepts the whey as healthy.  I know this because I feel good when I drink my whey protein.  I’m sure that some of you might disagree with my choice, but then again your body might have a different make-up then mine due to your heritage/DNA.

What works for one person might not work for another.  What I suggest is that you tune in and listen to your body.  Your body will always (at first) subtly tell you about its health.

Here’s a protein powder that I use and that  I recommend:

This is my grand experiment into selling my art online, blogging, and  affiliate marketing.

This is my grand experiment into selling my art online, blogging, and  affiliate marketing while I am a law student on summer break. 

I am very thankful to the YouTubers and bloggers I follow for all their useful information and in my future posts I will include links and reviews to those teachers that I have found helpful.

I’m a bit of a strange bird.  I am a natural entrepreneur, an ENTJ (in the MBTI  world), a formally trained artist, a professional actor and dancer with a long time interest in technology who decided to go to law school and is loving it.

Just to completely throw off my personality typecasting I also have a life long interest in the mechanics, science and study of intuition, eastern philosophy and yoga.  This is something I will also be exploring an sharing on my blog.

I will probably finish law school (focus on IP law and trademarks) and build some kind of automated online law service, get rich and spend the rest of my days traveling, making art, writing science fiction and cooking while volunteering my legal help to those in need or for some cause that I believe in.  Anyway, that’s my plan.  Life isn’t worth living without plans. 🙂

Thank you for joining me on this journey!

Belly Dance the better technique for childbirth?! How…

Is “belly dance” better than The Lamaze technique for childbirth?

I was surprised to learn that belly dancing was never intended to be the sort of dance we all immediately think of when we hear the words “belly dance.” As it turns out, the important movements of the Lamaze technique that assist in the birth process are simply a few traditional movements of belly dance.

A quick wiki search will tell you that: “The Lamaze technique, also known as the psychoprophylactic method or simply Lamaze, started as a prepared childbirth technique popularized in the 1940s by French obstetrician Dr. Fernand Lamaze based on his observations in the Soviet Union as an alternative to the use of medical intervention during childbirth.”

Lamaze teaches other techniques helpful to the birth process not covered in belly dance such as meditation and massage for labor, but doesn’t explain that the basic breathing, stomach flutters and stomach undulations of Lamaze are undeniably, belly dance.

Women who are still a part of the ancient culture of oriental dance for childbirth are heartbroken at the idea of belly dance being on display the way it is today. Traditionally, men were forbidden from seeing these dances performed while the women gave birth, as it was not a dance of seduction.

Western colonization led to the creation of what the west calls belly dance (or bellydance). This label is fairly offensive in the middle east which favors Raqs Sharqi (sounds like “rock sharky”) or its translation, oriental dance.  Current PC standards in the west favor “middle eastern dance” instead of belly dance, although this term isn’t as well known as of yet.

Click to see “You Asked Aunt Rocky” This is the belly dancing bible.

 The following is an excerpt from “You Asked Aunt Rocky: Answers and Advice About Raqs Sharqi and Raqs Shaabi,” by Morocco C. Varga Dinicu explaining the ancient ritual of middle eastern dance for childbirth.

 

“She was a dancer and had been taught by her grandmother, who had also been a dancer. She told me that the “belly” roll (I hate that word), flutter, and some parts of the floor section were based on the movements of labor and childbirth, and that thousands of years ago they had been part of a religious ceremony. With the advent of monotheism and various styles of religious restrictions, it had ceased to be religious and became secular: either as an entertainment (women for women, men for men, women for male or mixed audiences, men likewise) or as a ritual/therapy. In remoter areas, where the West hadn’t bolluxed things up, all the women would gather around a woman in labor and do certain movements, encouraging her to do likewise, thus easing the birth and reminding each other that they shared the same destiny and experiences as women. Having done these movements in various folk dances since childhood, their muscles were stronger and better prepared for childbirth.”

“Farab told me that as recently as 1937, she had been present when the women of her grandmother’s tribe gathered around the pallet of a woman in childbirth and did those movements, which she did along with them. Other dances were done afterwards to celebrate the birth, as well as a more elaborate repetition of the actual birth dance.”

 

“Men were forbidden to watch the birth or the women’s celebrations afterwards. They had their own dances and celebrations for the men, from which the women were, likewise, excluded.”

 

“Of course, she didn’t tell me all this the moment she cornered me in the dressing room. It came over several weeks of a burgeoning friendship and my interrogation tactics. To tell the truth, I thought she was full of it at the time.”

Click to see “Preparation for Birth” The Complete Guide to the Lamaze Method

“Then a couple of Sephardic women mentioned that a Lamaze course they had taken had been a laugh riot, since the main movements taught were termed “pelvic rocking” and “deep breathing”, which they knew as “camel” and “flutter”. I checked out a couple of the Lamaze classes at Mount Sinai hospital and found that they were correct.”

 

“These classes try to accomplish in a few short months or weeks what should have been started in childhood: namely, the shaping up of pelvic muscles to be used in pregnancy and childbirth, and to regain shape and muscle tone after birth.”    

 

Interesting.  Very Interesting.

Now, if you’re wondering what in the world this has to do with the Law of Attraction, there’s something you should know.

Manifestation accelerates your success, but Numerology points you in the right direction.

See, many people seem to believe that as long as they focus on what they want, it will magically appear – even if they don’t know what that is.

Unfortunately, these misguided folks are missing out on a whole bunch of lucrative opportunities already being scooped up by those who understand the power of Numerology.

Think of it this way: if the Law of Attraction is the wind in your sales, your numerological profile is the compass that shows you how to reach your ideal life…

When the two line up – there’ll be no stopping you.

So, while the Law of Attraction most definitely influences your fate, ultimately, you are the one responsible for creating your dream life and I want to give you every possible tool to point you in the right direction.

♥That’s why I’m inviting you to grab your free personalized Numerology Reading♥

Numerology combined with the Law of Attraction will be your secret weapon for living a breakthrough life… all I ask is that you please use this new found power with responsibility and good judgment.

Here’s to the life you deserve!

I’ll be honest with you, when I first heard about Numerology and the idea that numbers based on my birth details could not only predict the decisions I would make in my life, but influence my true purpose and ultimate destiny… I was a bit skeptical.

I thought it was virtually impossible for a website to be able to tell me anything even a little bit insightful after only submitting my name and date of birth…

⇒ But then I saw this and was immediately proven wrong

I was absolutely blown away at how much this free reading revealed about my true nature and wasn’t at all surprised to hear that it’s scientifically generated and hand-verified by a team of expert Numerologists.
