Resistance band bicycle crunch

I DO LOVE MY WORKOUTS!

Chape Fitness

The bicycle crunch is an excellent exercise for building core strength and toning your thighs. It’s an easy move to complete, and you can make it tougher adding a resistance band to the equation.

Anchor the band at the bottom of the door. Attach each end of the band to an ankle strap, and lie on your back. Move far enough away from the door so that the band starts to stretch. Place your hands behind your head.

Gently exhale and begin your movement by simultaneously:

Contracting the abdominals to curl your head and shoulders off the mat.

Bringing your right knee in toward your right armpit and allowing the knee to bend to a deeper angle.

Straightening your left leg toward the door while keeping it elevated off the floor, higher than your hip.

Rotating your torso slowly to bring your left elbow toward your right knee. This movement will…

5 Automotive Legends You May Have Forgotten

5 Automotive Legends You May Have Forgotten…

Aggressive Design

Sure we know names like Lamborghini, Porsche, and Ferrari, but do we know the people who created these cars?  The legends whose automotive history has faded into the abyss of time.  Some of you now probably argue about which mythic brand is best and why without even knowing the history or why these brands are as great as they are.  They all start with great stories and although we have a plethora of them, these are our best selections.

1.) Henry Ford
470px-Henry_ford_1919[1]Mr. Ford was a tinkerer and once he got enough money to follow his dreams he built a gasoline powered vehicle, but even with backing the road was a rough one.  It wasn’t until his 999 raced and won that his supporters lined up and began advertising his product.  You may think his dream was mass production or automotive genesis.  Actually he wanted to produce the best working…

LEARNING ABOUT ANGELS

LEARNING ABOUT ANGELS ~ By DOREEN VIRTUE

http://www.angeltherapy.com/meet-the-angels

BLOG INFO.:  http://www.angeltherapy.com/blog

You have guardian angels with you right now. These angels are pure beings of Divine light who are entirely trustworthy and who want to help you with every area of your life. The word angel means “messenger of God.” Angels carry messages between the Creator and the created, like Heavenly postal carriers.

We don’t worship or pray to the angels, because we only worship God. Nor do the angels want to be worshipped. As messengers of God, they carry prayers and messages between the Creator and the created (us).  If you worry whether you’re connecting with God’s trustworthy angel, or a lower energy, ask God and Archangel Michael to protect you and to provide a barrier . . . so that no one, human or spirit, who is not of God’s pure love can come near to you. Once you ask, this is done.

Angels love everyone unconditionally. They look past the surface and see the godliness within us all. They focus only on our Divinity and potential, and not on our “faults.” So angels aren’t judgmental, and they only bring love into our lives. You’re safe with the angels, and you can totally trust them.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a believer or a skeptic, because the angels believe in you. They see your inner light, they know your true talents, and they understand that you have an important life mission. They want to help you with everything.

You don’t need to have special training, be saintlike, or engage in religious work to commune with the angels. They help everyone who calls upon them, no matter what. The angels’ assistance is free of charge, always available, and there are no “catches” involved.

Those who regularly contact their angels report great improvements in their lives. They feel happier, more peaceful and confident, and less afraid of death or the future. They know that they’re not alone, because they have trustworthy guardians watching over them.

This site via Doreen relays messages so well that I just had to share it!  Always with Light & Love my Angels!

 

Research has shown that a simple act of kindness directed towards another improves the functioning of the immune system of both people.

Totally Inspired Mind

Wayne Dyer says : “Research has shown that a simple act of kindness directed toward another improves the functioning of the immune system and stimulates the production of serotonin in both the recipient of the kindness and the person extending the kindness. Kindness extended, received or observed beneficially impacts the physical health and feelings of everyone involved.”
