Endorphins are Imperative!

Posted on 20. Jun, 2013 in Uncategorized

It is only the second week of school and I have been super edgy, impatient, cranky and not being the “Mommy” I want to be! I love summertime. It is my favorite season of the year. Who doesn’t love sun, fun, beach, pools, warm weather, cute sandals, sundresses, amusement parks, amazing fresh fruit, movies at 10am and the best part — sleeping in!! However, our launch pad has not been a cool place to hang out. In fact, it has been very stressful and argumentative. Why, Why, Why? (more…)

Weekly Tip for January 17, 2012

Posted on 17. Jan, 2012 in Uncategorized

Well, almost three weeks into 2012, how are you doing on your “lifestyle changes”? 2012 is the Year to Get in Gear!

We started 2012 with making breakfast healthy and a couple snacks. Are you still on this road with us or do you need to step back reset and begin again.  Based on an incredible insight during a beach run, I was able to develop the new RockIt Mom motivation: There are no failures, only attempts that were not the correct way, so let’s try it again a different way.  Albert Einstein said, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” As women, we know — Failure is Not an Option!

Exercise of the Week — May 24, 2010

Posted on 23. May, 2010 in Exercises

The Farmer’s Walk

This is a move you sometimes see in competition. In the traditional version, you pick up heavy weights in each hand and walk as fast as you can for as far as you can. In this version, you push a heavy weight overhead and walk, keeping your arms locked and your core very tight to support you. You can use a barbell or heavy dumbbells…or anything heavy that you can get a good grip on. Simply push the weight overhead (have a spotter nearby to help if you need to) and walk across the room holding the weight overhead (or at your sides). Repeat for as many laps as you can handle. You’ll notice you have to use every muscle in your body to stay in control, so this is a wonderful whole body exercise.
