31 Day Challenge

I have set myself a 31 Day Challenge to drop some excess weight.

Christmas & Holidays are brilliant, this year however an extra 5kgs came visiting and

seemed to want to take up permanent residence.

I don’t think so.

I searched the internet and found an interesting challenge.

It incorporated nutrition and 15 minutes a day of exercise.  Time to me is of great

importance and I am sure it is for all.  Also they say it takes 21 days to form a habit so

am hoping that after the 31 day challenge the habit should be set.

They say weight-loss is actually 80% nutrition & 20% exercise.

I will talk about nutrition on another post as this post is to introduce you to the exercise positions for the challenge.

I have started putting my day to day exercise on  the Women Empowered Online Forum.

So please feel free to join and join the 31 day challenge.  I am on there everyday so

am willing to share and motivate all who are prepared to take on this 31 day Challenge.

If you do decide to do it ensure you take a photo of yourself  from neck to knee – can be

quite a motivator.

Below is a video of me showing some of the positions I do in the 15mins.

Now there is a beginners and even a sedentary program for ones that need to start

with not as intense exercise.

Join my forum

and show your motivation and I am happy to walk you through day by day

these other challenges.

Help yourself and I am extremely happy to offer assistance.

So join me on my 31 day challenge and let’s see where it leads.  The video was taken on Day 18

I needed to get myself ahead to ensure I was going to stick to it.

Today I post this video on Day 26 so come join me and watch your body change.

Remember to take your photo before you start the 31 day challenge.  You will not regret it.


Getting Back Into the Rhythm…

Let’s get back to the rhythm we live in a physical world of vibrations, sound waves are vibrations, light waves are a form of vibration and our brain waves are a form of vibration. So I do believe it is time to get back to the rhythm.
Online you can read testimonials of hundreds of people whose lives have been transformed by getting back to the rhythm. I am talking about brain wave vibration, where you learn how to move your body to your own personal internal natural healing rhythms.
We live in such a busy, busy world where demands are constantly placed upon ourselves. We collapse into bed and our brain just does not switch off.

We are restless, we wake with a start and realise our brain is still working in day time mode.

Brain wave vibration is probably the most simple and effective way to get at least a great night’s sleep.

Brain wave vibration is easy to do and can bring your body and mind back into balance for total health, happiness and joy within yourself.

Whilst you are performing this easy to learn practice you are slowing down your brain waves and letting your own body’s natural inbuilt healing processes take over. This slowing down process helps you get back the rhythm of sleep.
Sounds a bit like mediation, well it is in a way, however much easier as you do not have to empty the mind, you can do it anywhere anytime from a few seconds to 10 minutes.

It is amazing, it works. I have attached a video (the bottom one) which has some testimonials.

With Brain Wave Vibration, you can become more focused therefore able to:

  • Manage your stress more effectively
  • Stimulate your own natural healing processes
  • Regain your physical energy
  • Keep your emotions in check
  • Awaken your creative potential
  • & get a great night sleep

Brain Wave Vibration combines ancient healing traditions with our modern scientific understanding of the brain.
Most ancient cultures recognise a universal life force, an energy that exists in all things. Even Asian healing systems theorise that it is the balanced flow of ki through certain pathways in the body (Chinese call this life-energy pathway – meridian) that determines our health and well being.

I have attached 3 videos just to get the idea of what brain wave vibration is and also there is this book if you want to read more about it.

Brain Wave Vibration: Getting Back into the Rhythm of a Happy, Healthy Life by Ilchi Lee.

So enjoy getting back to the rhythm and vibrate your way to a whole new you.

Just wanted to share this information as it is simple and does not take long.

The mind is in a relaxed state so those positive thoughts just keep flowing.

So remember….
“Your Are Your Thoughts!”

Margaret Sanger the Contraceptive Outlaw…

A woman must not accept; she must challenge.

She must not be awed by that which has been built around her;

she must reverence that woman in her which struggles for expression.

~ Margaret Sanger

I found this quote and was inspired about it, I then looked to see who Margaret Sanger is or was and found out she was a villain,  this woman gave out contraception information and devices knowing these were outlawed.  The audacity of this woman.

This woman did not accept, she most definitely challenged.

So let’s see why this woman was so bold,  Margaret Sanger was educated as and worked as a nurse.  In her work with poor women on the Lower East Side of New York, she was aware of the effects of unplanned and unwelcome pregnancies.

Her mother’s health had suffered as she bore eleven children. She came to believe in the importance to women’s lives and women’s health of the availability of birth control, a term which she’s credited with inventing.

Well so far she seems like a caring, compassionate nurse who was compassionate to the women she cared for:

  • 1912 Sanger gave up nursing work to dedicate herself to the distribution of birth control information
  • 1913 Sanger went to Europe, found a paper, Women Rebel & indicted for “mailing obscenities”, Sanger fled to Europe
  • 1914 Sanger founded the National Birth Control League
  • 1916 Sanger was writing articles on health “the Call”, she collected and published these articles – “What Every Girl Should Know”
  • 1917 Sanger published – “What Every Mother Should Know”
  • 1916 -17 set up first birth control centres in USA
  • 1918  Sent to the workhouse for “creating a public nuisance”
  • 1918 – 27 Sanger’s many arrests and prosecutions, and the resulting outcries, helped lead to changes in laws, giving doctors the right to give birth control advice to patients.  Following this doctors were also able to prescribe birth control devices.
  • 1927 Sanger helped organise the first World Population Conference in Geneva
  • 1938 Sanger wrote her autobiography after writing many books and articles on birth control and marriage
  • 1942 Planned Parenthood came into being
Margaret Sanger though seen as a woman of question, a villain was most certainly a strong advocate for women and action taker for these women.
The lower class women also did not accept they also challenged, for some of those women the result was death when they attempted self abortion.
Today we have choices and information of any type at our fingertips, those things are not outlawed, yet in all too many countries women are still treated as second class citizens, (and in some countries not even treated that well).   So as women today we are still being continually challenged and as women we must not accept.
We have the strength and the belief of Margaret in all of us and as women we must not accept, we must challenge to be the fulfilled happy woman that we are.
I read about Margaret and saw that she devoted her life to what she believed.  Her success was achieved as she knew what she wanted and knew her goal.  How she got there she paid no concern it would happen.  Her message and thoughts were answered and she accepted and received.   She married a very wealthy, influential man who believed in what she was doing so she was able to achieve her goals.
We all can achieve our life purpose and this web-page and forum is here to help us achieve just that.
So join our forum and see what we can achieve.
