Tip of the Week

Roll with the punches! Life is gonna smack you right in the face when you don't expect it. If you're head's on straight, you're certainly gonna handle it just fine. Roll with it. Complain a little bit, and let it go.

Watson Wednesday!

Welcome to this week's Watson Wednesday!! Those two exclamation points should indicate how excited you and I both are to be here this week! Get pumped!

This week I have two great songs to sync onto that iPod. It's all about what makes me feel sassy, sexy, and gets me up dancing around my room. After all, how good can a song be if you won't even dance to it in your own room. So, drum roll please! *Epic Drum Roll* This weeks winners are....
1) When I Grow Up by The Pussycat Dolls
2) You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift
These songs get me on my feet, swaying my hips, and singing out loud. Hopefully they will do the same for you.

Arms, arms, arms. Push ups, push ups, push ups. That is how to get it done. They are painful, they hurt, they make grown men want to cry, but they do the job. Why? Because they hurt and because they are hard. Like Jesus said ladies, "No pain, no gain."

So how do you do a push up? You suck back the tears and you start from the ground up.

Some rather irritating individuals would call these women's push ups, but we're just going to stick with the name Bent Knee Push Ups.

Place yourself with your knees on the ground under your hips and your hands on the ground underneath your shoulders. Shift your weight forward into your hands so that you arrive in a modified push up position.
1) Check that your back is straight
2) Make sure that your butt isn't sticking up into the air
3) Ensure that your fingers are pointing towards the wall in front of you and your elbows towards the back wall and
4) Decide whether or not you want to cross your feet and lift them off the ground. Once you are situated you will lower yourself by bending your elbows (keeping them in tight to the rib cage) until your upper arm is next to your torso and then push back up again.

Start with 5 and try to work up to 3 sets of 15.

This is a fantastic way to tone the tummy, biceps, and triceps.

Summer's around the corner so toned arms couldn't be more important. Let's get ready shall we? Pull out the tube tops, plug into the tunes, and start toning those arms!
