The wisdom of Mary Lou Retton

I have been meaning to write about my favorite comedy show at this time: Happily Divorced.  But it is the wisdom of this gymnast what has caught my attention  a minute ago.  I have never been a sport person, but I do remember her and watched some of her performances. I have seen her through the years doing some other things and have always feel her natural, happy, vibe as very likeable.  But, today this interview/video about her thinking around working out and sports related to her daughters has confirmed to me that she is a Wise Woman/Mom.

I greatly appreciate her feedback about how to approach healthy living, which for e is nothing else than living from your very vortex.

Love it, Mary Lou!

Kirstie Alley’s renaissance

We both, Kirstie and I that is, come from very different stand points of view about life, but given that we are all One, there is something in her that makes me happy. I love seeing her shinning through. There a special exhilaration when you see someone being inside his/her vortex. Kirstie’s expression, even figure, has changed so much in 5 weeks. She was ready to have fun from day one, but you can tell, she now owns more profoundly what she is doing next to that piece of man she is dancing with, love him big time!!!!!!

I enjoy that she is at the point of her life she is, proving to herself where the strength of her life is: in being absolutely happy!!

Love you, delicious people!!

Here is a video of her appearance this week:

‘On The Floor’ By Jennifer Lopez (feat. Pitbull)

This new song “On the floor”can work wonders for JLO.  I immediately liked it and actually see her dancing to it.  Awesome! It has what the past song with Pitbull did not: good vibe.  Is an outstanding club song that anyone in the world can dance to.  Congrats!

 

I have just attracted another song for my daily 15 minutes Oxycise workout :)  How God is that?

I am so watching the premiere on American Idol this Thursday March 3rd.  :)

Enjoy the video teaser, delicious people and dance to it!

Oxycise!

Aubrey Lee

Almost ten years ago a co-worker in Cincinnati talked to me about a book he had borrowed from the library.  I do not remember the title but I have never forgotten what it was about.  I still even have some photocopies he made for me.  :)  Oh, Randy!! Good pal!  The book suggested a technique for losing weight,  a non traditional one and so simple it almost sound “silly”.    Oxycise is all about breathing in and out as your only workout to lose weight.  It started with Jill Johnson, maybe 30 years ago and now her daughter, Aubrey Lee is doing the same in a so renovated and appreciated way.  I gave it a try back then and I saw it working.

Recently, after few months of really been enthusiastic about losing some weight so I can fit in my current clothes :) I got so tired of the routine and here I am desiring again feeling the wonder of the oxygen in my body, it is so easy and satisfying setting some time aside to focus on only breathing without scoring any results I will give a try again.  We never get it wrong because we never get it done, so there is so much to gain.  We never stop desiring, how awesome is that??!!!  :)  And the best thing of all is that I know it works because there is nothing more powerful than focus/attention to what you want combined with oxygen.

So enjoy the material and give it a try; it feels awesome!!

Love you, delicious people!

Walking off your pounds of resistance: a Leslie Sansone gift.

Love my body!

I found Leslie Sansone as a result of my very “wishful thinking” few years ago.  I do not workout every day, rather every other day.  And, I admit I will do it when I am no fitting my pants.

I like simple things and start gradually is critical so I do not get frustrated.  I knew I was going to find something as I wanted it,  and Leslie’s walks is all that.  I am following her assignments at iVillage and just today I found two successful stories that used her walks.  Both ladies are members of  Sparkpeople.

These two ladies are Judi and Bonnie. They have done an amazing job inspiring me for my workout with Leslie at iVillage.  They enjoy the same I enjoy: walking off weight without setting  foot outside… now that is extra, mega, awesome :)  When I go outside it is because I really want to experience nature.    As Leslie says, you can not get it wrong when walking.  I suggest you start with the two mile walk and then the 3 mile.  I vary the music to make it more interesting but never get away from the basic steps of her if it is not for plain and delicious dancing -which I love!, that is how much it works for me.  :)

Give yourself a chance to connect with your body and dance to the rhythm of the joy of a body in movement. The freedom of controlling your life is worth the journey and Leslie’s “Good job” at the end of her two mile walk is worth much appreciation for inspiring us.

Happy walk, delicious people!

Losing weight or getting happy?

Relax and let it happen.

I have asked and it has been given!  Yes, one more time.  I had been asking for a place and people to share inspiration with.  I wanted to find a new way of keeping myself moving.  Therefore, with no effort at all, on my yahoo email account, I saw an email from Hay House.  I usually do not open those even when I voluntary subscribed to it :) because it is too much marketing for my cells, but I still love them.  So it is that I read it fast, very fast and then I saw “sparkpeople.com

I love so much the sensation the word “spark” provokes on me that I clicked on it.  I also found out more about Chris Downie.  I fell in love with the story of the website, how such of a big city it is and that is absolutely free :) chichin  Yes, I was sold!!  It has absolutely everything you can think about to get entertained and inspired in a very user friendly fashion.

With all of that, of course, came the same reflection I get into every time I go and look at what “health and fitness professionals/experts” say and how people see themselves and their weight.  I am in a point of my life that all I want is to fit in the pants I already have.  At times I have been so uncomfortable about not been able to wear what is in my closet, that I go, work out, control my portions of food and it makes it happen quickly, without too much of an effort.  For the last two years, I will say, every time it has happened I notice the feeling of  freedom has been key.  The freedom of deciding how to do it, have fun with the movement of my body, not stopping myself from eating what I want , feeling happy and good before serving my meal so the portions really will satisfy my hunger and not my mood had played a huge role on my success of keeping myself happy and on a size 14.

No one should tell others what size to feel happy with.   Getting happy first will allow you to appreciate where you are and open widely and kindly the door to where you want to be without pushing against yourself.   No one should tell others how to feel about our weight/physical appearance or healthy habits.  In other words:  always trust yourself from a happy place, you have a very wise guidance system, your emotions!

And that is exactly what Abraham, through Esther Hicks was talking about on this youtube video.  It moved me to see the lady on it on tears because, even when I have never weight what she weights, I have been in a very similar place many times of my life, not only about weight but about embracing myself.  Abraham had helped realized this already before the DVD came out, and that I profoundly appreciate.

I am at a time of my life when getting happy is what it is all about, the rest will come along and I receive proof of it every step along the way.  Sparkpeople and its community is a huge confirmation of it.

Look for any excuses to get happy about anything at every single minute of your day.  Feel your way there and enjoy the most valuable thing of all of it: yourself, the You that already Is all you want to be.

Happy day!
