Learning + Sharing = Growth

8 May

We have the blessing to live our life here on Earth.  Every day we have experiences and have the choice to learn from them.  Whether they happen to us or to others.  If we as humans, Gods children, do not take the time to learn and grow in every way, what is our journey here on Earth all about?  I am on a journey to continue to better myself.  To always be open to learning, growing, yearning to become the better me.  I think one of the best lessons I learned from a young age is to not judge.  God only knows what exactly is going on.  Especially don’t judge by outward appearances or what you think you may know about them, which opens yourself to making assumptions.  We all know when we assume we make an “ass out of u and me.”  And for some sad reason it is in our human nature to automatically believe the bad in people, even if it is not true, then to believe the good things when they are true.  Let’s all try to make a difference.  In ourselves and others.  If you always keep your heart and mind open you will be amazed at how people will surprise you in the best way as well as continuing to learn and grow as a person.  While we are on this journey of learning it is important that we give back and teach the things we have learned to be valuable.  I love helping and teaching to my younger (and older) friends and family.  It’s so rewarding.  If we all took a stance back…took the time to use our God-given senses and truly try to learn and see what really matters…take the time to listen to our heart, our soul, that’s what is important.  Have you ever looked in the mirror? I mean stare deep inside into your eyes.  You can’t lie and you can’t hide.  But it is a very freeing exercise if you do it….For me, it always comes back to, what would you have done unto you.  One of the best teachings of Jesus I must say.  Life is not about being perfect…nobody is…it is about truly trying, learning, wanting to be the best you you can be.

All my love SUPERMOMELS XOXO,

Try the Tracy Anderson Method

13 Jun

So many of my friends and family, and people that I don’t know have been asking me what type of work out I have been doing.  Some of you may have read my previous post about how much I love the Tracy Anderson Method.  Click here to read my blog post!

I said previously that next I was going to try the Tracy Anderson Metamorphasis. I have for about a year now and I absolutely LOVE it!!  You can not go wrong with her workout and the Metamorphasis is a full collection of workouts and you can choose which is best for you.  Omnicentric, Hipcentric, Abcentric, or Glutecentric.

For some of you that don’t want to commit to actually buying her dvd’s yet and I mean yet because you will fall in love with her method.  So, if I were you I would just commit to the Metamorphasis but in the meantime  I have made up my own full body workout  with Tracy Anderson Webisodes that I would love to share with you!!

Start with your arms.  It starts out with her free standing arms (no weights) that you will need to “control” while doing them.  Pretty much like flexing or resisting while you are doing the free standing arms.  This will really insure that you get the most out of your workout and the muscles with tighten and so will the skin!! Then you will need to use either 2-3 lb weights if you are a woman and 5-8- lb weights if you are a man.  This arm webisode is about 10 minutes and it ROCKS!!

This is an extra arm webisode if you would like to add it in.  This is an arm workout that Tracy created for Gwyneth Paltrow when she was training for Iron Man 2.  It ROCKS, especially after you do the arm workout above!!  Good Luck and you can do it!!!

Next is your abs. This ab webisode starts laying on the ground on your mat and then you will switch to standing abs.  Standing abs are amazing.  Just like when you do the free standing arms you will need to focus on your abs and put your mind in the muscle.  Flex the area you are focusing on when you are doing them.  Tracy’s ab workouts really work and really focus on the “sexy stomach” we all want.  This ab webisode is also about 10 minutes and will rock you!!

Last but not least is the Butt and Thigh webisode.  These are done on your mat and these are the “muscle exhaustion” exercises that she talks about.  This leg workout is amazing!  Just remember, keep your mind in your muscle and follow through on each movement.  This butt and Thigh webisode is about 16 minutes and will leave you drenched but it a “Oh so good way!”

Hope this helps all the SUPERMOMELS out there!!

XOXO

Meredith
