Girlfriends Weekend Trip (Keep on smiling – this is a joke!)

Posted on 20. Mar, 2010 in Friends, Fun

 Four friends spend weeks planning the perfect girls getaway trip – shopping, casinos, massages, facials.

People dancing in a clubTwo days before the group is to leave Mary’s husband puts his foot down and tells her she isn’t going.

Mary’s friends are very upset that she can’t go, but what can they do. Two days later the three get to the hotel only to find Mary sitting in the bar drinking a glass of wine.

“Wow, how long you been here and how did you talk your husband into letting you go?”

Well, I’ve been here since last night……. yesterday evening I was sitting on the couch and my husband came up behind me and put his hands over my eyes and said ‘Guess who’?” I pulled his hands off to find all he was wearing was his birthday suit. He took my hand and led me to our bedroom. The room was scented with perfume, had two dozen candles and rose petals all over…………. On the bed, he had handcuffs and ropes! He told me to tie and cuff him to the bed, so I did. And then he said, “Now, you can do whatever you want.”

“So here I am!”

Exercises to Sleep Better, Week of March 18, 2010

Posted on 14. Mar, 2010 in Exercises

Exercise to Combat Sleeplessness

Those who lead more sedentary lives are likely to be poor sleepers. The lack of physical activity can contribute to lack of sound sleep by inhibiting the daily rise and fall of the body-temperature rhythm.  As a result, many people get caught in a cycle of insomnia, reduced energy and physical activity, and worsened insomnia.

Exercise improves sleep by producing a significant rise in body temperature, followed by a compensatory drop a few hours later. The drop in body temperature, which persists for two to four hours after exercise, makes it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep. So plan to exercise at least 6-7 hours before your bedtime. (more…)

Weekly Tips for March 15, 2010

Weekly Tips from RockIt Mom:

1. GREEN -  Here are just a couple of ideas to round out your green activities. Take your own cup to your favorite coffee shop, you may even get a 10 cent credit.  Use hand dryers in public restrooms, instead of paper towels which are not recyclable.  Use cotton fabric rags to clean the house and save almost $72/month.  My new favorite: Throwing a party, instead of buying disposable tablecloths, go to a fabric shop.  Buy remnants of fabric and finish the edge.  Some large pieces can be bought for less than $2. Or buy flat sheets and cut to fit your tables.  Finish the edges and you have a new tablecloth for less than $5.     (more…)

Spring Ahead TONIGHT!

Posted on 13. Mar, 2010 in Fun, Uncategorized

Good news, tonight is Daylight Savings!  Before you go to bed, set your clocks ONE (1) hour ahead.  Yes, you lose an hour of sleep, but being back on daylight savings is awesome. If you have a child in any sports, you have more daylight time, you feel more engergized with an extra hour of daylight and it means SPRING and WARM weather is on its way! 

Remember to do this tonight, you will forget in the morning unless you are suppose to be somewhere and you get the call that wakes you up and tells you — You Are Late!  Have a fabulous Sunday and if you are in Encinitas area, come to Moonlight Beach around 4 pm for Sunset Yoga then a Surfrider Beach Clean Up! Gotta get the beach ready for summertime, too!

Why Women are So Beautiful and Smart….

Posted on 12. Mar, 2010 in Fun

With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies.

So we aren’t heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy.

Beginning today,when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, “Good grief, look how smart I am!”
