WATCH THIS (get more workouts)
I was on twitter last night and I saw a tweet from Piers Morgan:
So I clicked… and read her article, entitled My Medical Choice
Personally, I thought it was a very brave and thought-out decision by Angelina. She watched her mother struggle and suffer for 10 years fighting breast cancer. I have seen too many friends and family suffer and die from cancer in my life, I know the pain all too well.
Turns out, that she has a genetic disposition for this type of cancer and her risk is significantly higher than the average person, so she opted to have a double mastectomy to try and prevent it from happening. Here is what I thought… please let me know what you think.. I LOVE to read your comments!
It was brought to my attention that the CEO of Abercrombie, Mike Jeffries, made some comments about not making his clothes in size XL or XXL because he didn’t ”he doesn’t want larger people shopping in his store. He wants thin and beautiful people. He doesn’t want his core customers to see people who aren’t as hot as them wearing his clothing. People who wear his clothing should feel like they’re one of the ‘cool kids.’”
and while I am ALL about self-acceptance, self-love and being happy at any size… I also STRONGLY believe in freedom of speech and having a niche market and being TRUE to yourself…
So.. my response to Mike Jeffries comments:

Foam Rollers are a great form of Self-Myofascial Release.
You may see many in the gym, white, blue, grey, bumpy ones, smooth ones and people rolling around like its fun
(I’m telling you, its not! LOL)
Foam rolling helps relieve muscle soreness and tension, loosens knots, allivates IT Band syndrome and helps with full range of motion and increasing mobility.
Its one of those love/hate things. I’ll be honest… its hard to “not be a bitch” when I’m lying on one… I whine, cry and all but curse my mother.
But afterward… wow! I’m a new woman!
Here are a few techniques I use and teach my clients for IT band, inner thighs, upper back, traps, lats and even feet for plantar fascitis.
The foam roller I use in this video is from The Pro Unit

I’ve had discussions about this “self-made holiday” on Facebook, I’ve mentioned this in the newsletters and I recently spoke about it on a radio show, but I realized I never composed a blog about it!
See, at the end of December 2012, I started to think about “resolutions” and all of those things we tend to do at the end of the year…. memories from the past year and hopes for the New Year… and I’ll be honest, I was not happy with what was going on. I had been dealing with metabolic damage and adrenal fatigue for the better part of two years, and I had started to make some GREAT headway, and then, POW I lost it!
How did I lose it?
I started staying up late again, I started taking on more projects than I could handle, I started putting myself last and others first… you know the deal.
I realized that the THINGS I was doing to feel better, ie. taking care of me, getting to bed early, meditating, relaxing, eating regular meals, taking my supplements, etc.
I had completely stopped….and I was feeling terrible.
In fact, I told my husband, I just want to rent a car and go stay in a hotel ALONE for a few days. (ok maybe a week!)
He was obviously hurt… but that’s how I felt!
I felt as if I was being pulled in a million directions and I needed an escape… NOW!!
So that is where the “Me Day” idea came from.
I decided that for 2013 ONE DAY out of every month, was a day for ME.
and so, I took out my phone and blocked out the last Sunday of every month for my year long experiment.
Well, January, something came up, the Dani Johnson First Steps to Success seminar was on “MY WEEKEND” so, I just rescheduled for the next weekend! I took my Sunday (it was Super Bowl Sunday) and got myself a massage, read a book and took a nap. I can’t say that I didn’t get on the computer or ditch the phone.. but it was a start.
So my February day came and my husband knew it was my day, but he needed me for a few things, and I have to say it was kind of ruined. He apologized and it was no biggie… who knew this would be so hard?!! I thought, “maybe this will be better on a week day!”
March came and went, I traveled to 3 states in 3 weeks and there was no time for me, again and here we are, mid April. I have a day scheduled THIS weekend. Hubby’s out of town and I’m disappearing!! For the rest of the year, I moved my “Me Day” to a Friday. Its easier when hubby is at work to BE ALONE.
The moral is: be flexible, be adaptable, but put it in the books.
I’m not perfect. I don’t have children, however, I have a very busy life because I give a lot and a lot of people depend on me. I understand how hard it is to have a day for you. BUT its still SO important. I urge EVERYONE..
I CHALLENGE YOU—-> DO IT NOW.
Schedule your “Me Days” for the REST of 2013 (there’s still 8 months left!!)
Then CLICK TO TWEET IT: I’m taking a day just for me!! #meday #becauseImworthit @SweatyBetties
even if its a “Me Half-Day” – take 4 hours for YOU. I promise you will be less bitter about the things you “have to do”.
Don’t tell me that you can’t, that you don’t have time, or can’t find a sitter…
Don’t be a b!tch.
Lets just DO THIS…. and then come back and tell me what you plan on doing. Here are some ideas:
How did Bex go from an unknown mom-of-4, making low-budget videos on YouTube, to hosting her own TV show in just 2.5 years?
How did Danny-J go from being a corporate/government “slave” to running a successful online business, coaching and speaking gigs with over 36,000 Facebook Fans?
Did you ever imagine you could turn your blogs, YouTube videos or Facebook posts into a career?
At first, we never thought it could happen. And we were SO WRONG!

only have 20 mins at the gym? Need a quickie workout– two sets of exercises, 3 rounds of each and done. This is great for toning, fat-burning, and metabolism bursting while short on time!
You can add some extra cardio if you please, but at least you’ll feel like you got something done. I did this on Sunday and I’m actually sore!
