I WANT THAT TO BE MY BUTT ^^

I know, i know, genentics, blah blah.  I want my legs and butt to at least be somewhat like this, if I can do it.   I have a good set of abs. I will stop feeling bad about saying it, I earned them. 🙂 Every gut wrenching plank, horrible circus ab, cursing through clenched teeth…anyways, you get the point, LOL. So on to the next project! Legs and booty! I hate running and i love a simple workout. This 100 pyramid is awesome, put on some music and knock this one out! (2 or 3 times if you aren’t red faced and sweating) I do this after walking the dogs for a half hour and follow with some stretching, my other nemesis! So here is my 100 pyramid (found on Pinterest), I like it, I hope you do too!! Look for a playlist tomorrow hotties!

A Little All Natural Healing….SLEEP

A Little All Natural Healing..I did a post a while back that is now on the “New to Pole” page about bangs, bumps and bruises but there are a lot of other things we all go through on a daily basis that can be helped with a little all natural healing. Holistic healing has been around for thousands of years. It is less harmful to your body, doesn’t require a doctors visit and won’t cost you an arm and a leg.:) Here are my tips for sleep. Hope these help you ladies. We need to be well rested goddesses to work that pole!

Insomnia 

Melatonin – Melatonin is a naturally occuring hormone produced by the pineal gland. When it is dark, your body produces more melatonin; when it is light, the production of melatonin drops. Taking an additional you melatonin supplement in the evening 30-60 minutes before bed will help you get a restful night’s sleep.

Valerian – Valerian is a flower that grows in Europe and Asia. It has been used since the time of the Romans to relieve a number of ailments including anxiety, insomnia and digestive complaints. Valerian is non addictive and is available in pill, tea, and liquid extract form. (I would NOT recommend this to calm your jitters before a pole performance, sleepy time only)

L-Theanine – An amino acid found in green tea and capsule form. L theanine helps the reduce mental and physical stress by helping the body to produce GABA, a feel good neurotransmitter that helps to raise dopamine levels in your brain.

I know I said sleep aids but these two help to increase the sleepy chemicals in your brain but they also help with anxiety and depression.

5-HTP – For anxiety and depression as well as insomnia – 5 hydroxytryptophan (whew!). An amino acid that helps produce serotonin. Serotonin is what controls that happy feeling. Serotonin can affect sleep, appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation. I have been taking this for years and when I stop, it’s noticeable. (Should not be used with anti depressant or MAOI inhibitors.)

I’m not a doctor or a health practitioner. I have just been takling herbs for years and wanted to share what I know. ❤ All these products can be found locally here in the South Baty at most health food stores. I personally love Lindberg on Sepulveda and Hawthorne. Sprouts is a another really good resource.

Have a great day hotties and don't forget class at 6:30 this evening!

Work that Body..quickly…with results right now

Hi Hotties! Happy Thursday,  it’s almost Friday!  Woo hoo!  😀

I am starting the Insanity DVD series, it’s (HIIT) hi intensity interval training program. This POP Cardio video is similar and will get you sweating! The idea is to work the hell outta your body to the point you want to die, in a short amount of time, it creates an “afterburner” effect, your body burns calories for hours after. Don’t forget to drink lots of water, eat a snack with protein and stretch. If you are feeling brave and saucy this oblique and muffin top video by is great to follow it with ❤

Have an awesome day! Class  tonight at 7:30

See you ’round the poles!!
