Women Over 40 by Andy Rooney. Fun To Read!

 Andy Rooney (Fun To Read)   Women Over 40
Women Over 40 by Andy Rooney
 Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far
 sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are
 forthright and honest.  They’ll tell you right off if
 you are a jerk if you are acting like one.  You don’t
 ever have to wonder where you stand with her.  Yes, we
 praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. 
Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal.  For every stunning,
 smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald,
 paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with
 some 22-year old waitress.  Ladies, I apologize. 

For all those men who say, ‘Why buy the cow when you
 can get the milk for free?’, here’s an update for
 you.  Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage.  Why? 
  Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire
 pig just to get a little sausage! 
 
Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!

GET THE LONG, LEAN FEMALE BODY…YOU WANT

TO GET THE LONG, LEAN BODY, OF TALL, BEAUTIFUL WOMEN..WITH NO BULK…FORGET THE TRIPS TO THE GYM. I USE A PILATES (STRETCH) BOX, FOR MY WORKOUT. IT GIVES YOU THE BODY OF A BALLET DANCER, AND CREATES LONG, LEAN ARMS AND LEGS WITHOUT BUILDING ANY MUSCLES. THIS IS GREAT FOR GIRLS WHO  LIVE ON THE  FREEZING EAST COAST, WHEN IT IS COLD AND DIFFICULT TO GET TO THE GYM.

THE NEW REBOUND BOARD, (WHICH ALLOWS YOU TO JUMP UP AND DOWN, WHILE LYING DOWN) IS ACTUALLY FUN. YOU WILL SEE RESULTS IN 6 WEEKS.  I LOVE MY MACHINE. THERE ARE SEVERAL MODELS TO PURCHASE,  BE SURE AND PURCHASE THE NEWEST MACHINE. IT COMES WITH 2 DVD’S WHICH DEMONSTRATES EXERCISES. MOST  BEAUTIFUL MODELS USE THIS FORM OF EXERCISE, TO GET THE LONG, LONG, AND LONGER LOOKING TORSO.  I USE THE AERO PILATES..WHICH ARE UNDER $300.00 

 I PURCHASE MINE SEVERAL YEARS AGO, BUT THEY KNOW HAVE THEM ON QVC TELEVISION, OR GO TO THEIR WEB SITE. WWW.QVC.COM  AND COMPARE PRICES AND SHIPPING COSTS.  IF YOU HAVE BACK PAIN OR JOINT PAIN, THIS IS A GREAT MACHINE FOR YOU. THERE IS NO PRESSURE ON YOUR JOINTS, BECAUSE YOU’RE LYING DOWN. THIS WAS DEVELOPED BY JOSEPEH PILATE IN 1920 AFTER HE WAS INJURED DOING BALLET ON STAGE. HE WANTED TO CONTINUE STRETCHING OUT HIS MUSCLES. SINCE THEN, THEY HAVE ADDED FEATURES FOR SPRING-BOARDING FOR CARDIO. THIS MACHINE, IS NOT JUST FOR LIGHT WEIGHT PEOPLE. DEPENDING ON THE WORK OUT YOU WANT, YOU CAN USE ONE CORD, TWO CORDS FOR AVERAGE WORK OUTS  OR THREE CORDS FOR LONG DISTANCE AND ADVANCED WORKOUTS. WHY, I HAVE ALWAYS USED IT? IT CREATES BALANCE IN YOUR BRAIN. IT TEACHES YOU COORDINATION. HARD TO BELIEVE, BUT YOU WILL LEARN BALANCE, COORDINATION, AND CREATE THE GRACE OF A BALLET STAR, WHILE TONING.

THE MACHINE ITSELF IS LONG, AND YOU NEED ABOUT 6 FEET ON THE FLOOR, TO LEAVE IT OUT. I NEVER PUT MY AWAY, AND HAVE IT CLOSE TO THE WALL…SO IT DOES NOT TAKE UP A LOT OF  “WALKING” SPACE. IF YOU’RE A BEGINNER, YOU CAN BEGIN WITH 15 MINS EVERY 3 DAYS–AND YOU CAN BEGIN WITH BOUNCING WHILE YOU WATCH TELEIVION…BUT I LOVE TO TURN ON MY FAVORITE CD AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC AND USE MY IMAGINATION TO SEE MYSELF, AND FEEL MYSELF..THE WAY I WANT TO BE. YOU WILL NOT GET SORE, AND YOU WILL FEEL BETTER AFTER THE FIRST TIME YOU USE IT. SO, GIVE IT A TRY. GIVE YOURSELF A DAY OFF,  BETWWEN WORKOUTS…AS YOU WILL TEND TO “OVER-DO” SINCE IT DOESN’T HURT.

 YOU MIGHT LOOK ON CRAIGS LIST, ETC TO SEE IF THEIR IS A USED ONE, BUT YOU MUST HAVE THE DVD’S THAT COME WITH IT, FOR INSTRUCTION. MY FRIEND, BOUGHT ONE THIS WEEKEND FOR $50.00 THAT SOMEONE BOUGHT AND NEVER USED.

MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN ASKING, ABOUT WHAT I DO. I WILL BE OFFERING MORE ADVISE. ALSO, EMAIL ME WITH QUESTIONS.  

GET IN SHAPE FOR SUMMER. THE SUMMER STYLES SHOW A LOT OF SKIN. SO, START NOW!

I Hate Going To The Dentist

I am the first to admit, I hate going to the dentist. The only way, I can insure to return for my next 6 month checkup….is by making the appointment, while I’m there. I have written about this before, but it is important. When you’re wearing makeup…your teeth will appear more yellow…up to red/orange/yellow lipsticks. Having your lips outlined,also brings more attention to your mouth and teeth. Being a woman is hard work. So, ladies…just grin and bare this beauty ritual–of making a cleaning apointment and going to your dentist. 

 Have your teeth cleaned and if possible, have your dentist whiten your teeth. Years if coffee, tea, colas, will disappear. If that’s not in your budget, get the products at your local drug store. It may seem expensive to have ex-rays and pay for a cleaning, but I have seen many people, not go to the dentist regularly…to end up in horrific pain, and expensive surgery that can run in the thousands. Much like maintance on your car engine, your 6 month dental appointments will save you thousands of dollars and needless surgical pain.

Also, tooth decay and gum disease can increase the amount of oral bacteria that enters your bloodstream, leaving you vunerable to infective endocarditis, an infection of the heart valve –that may increase your risk for a stroke. Can you tell, I have a dentist in the family? Yep, Dr. Doyle my brother who drives me crazy; he never stops asking me how many times I have flossed. Ug, I hate it but we have to do it! Think of it, as part of your beauty routine. Also, put your floss beside your television chair, or at your desk. If you place the floss, where you normally sit for long periods of time–you will create a much higher chance –of creating a routine of flossing. 

Here’s to a beautiful smile!

Losing Weight, Keeping Trim

Women have more pressure to be thin. I recently read an article on how men rated women–what would be the number one factor, in his attraction between several types of women. What made her desirable. Was it her beautiful face, charming smile, career, or her shape?

I was surprised at the results. A woman with a beautiful face, who was “some what” heavy…lost out to a woman with a plain face  but had a good body. Simply put, most men prefer a woman with nice body for a first time date and for a lasting relationship.  Gosh, I’m thinking to myself. Does this say…most men would pick a woman who wasn’t particularly “pretty”–but had a slim body? I began my own research. I found…at my gym and around my friends….many women with really pretty faces, were not approached, while a woman who wasn’t particularly pretty, perhaps didn’t even wear makeup or spend a lot of time on her hair…but had a good body…was being approached and went on to lasting relationships. Heavy set, beautiful women, tend to be alone. Think of Eliz Taylor. Beautiful, but heavy. However, I think this would apply to men also….perhaps women prefer a male with a nice body.  So, this disappointing insight left me with some “food for thought” on sliming down for your feminine goals.

Pick the newer foods you can eat, that have been given flavor makeovers. Starkist Tuna Creations is now abailable with tomatoe pesto albacore, each 4-ounce serving of this marinated tuna contains between 120 and 140 calories. $2.00 at your grocery store. I also have been eating Breakstones’e LiveActive Cottage Cheese, with 3 grams of fiber in each 110-120 calorie cup which keeps your digestive system humming. Go for the new pineapple and mixed berry versions. $3.00 for four, at your grocery store. Old London Melba Toast, all natural crisps now come in rosemary and olive oil, as well as sourdough flavors. They make a perfect base for lowfat cheese. $3.00 for a 5 oz box at your grocery store. Lastly, I found a new snack, Manny’s Healthy Snacks On The Go. This to to-go pack of celery, raisins, and carrot sticks also contains a lowfat ranchy dipping sauce; its available in two other snack mix varieties. $3.00 per pack. In your cookie section, you will find new diet cookies in every flavor, and I can not tell the difference in them– compared to cookies made with sugar.

 Lastly, slow down when you eat. Don’t watch television. Chew your food slowly and stop between bites. In modeling school, early on…I was taught to “think about what I was eating”.  When we eat, and our minds are racing …or if we are reading, or just eating while in a “stance” due to worry worry, etc.– we tend to over-eat. Once I created these habits. they stayed with me.  I don’t salt my food. I only think about eating… when I eat. I slow down, and taste the food in my mouth while I am chewing. I drink a lot of water, after eating (don’t drink ice water). Don’t love to eat, but rather love…to look and feel good. See yourself (in your mind) how you will look.

With time, and with “conscious eating” you will begin to lose weight. When you’re totally present with your food, thinking ONLY about chewing slowly (not about fearful or angry situations in your life)…you are able to focus on the food making you healthy and making you thin. Begin to have a personal relationship with your food, while you’re chewing…only think about the food and how it will make you feel and look better…and don’t eat when your emotionally escaping.

Eat, when you have the time…to taste the food, chew the food, and think about how well the food is going to make you feel and eat. Take time, to buy tons of salad material, and vegs you can grill, along with protein items you can grill, so you can prepare a healthy dinner during your busy week-nights. Recently,  I bought a George Foreman grill… I put some asparagus, with tuna on the grill. Minutes later, dinner is ready. No fat, no oil and no mess. Dinner is about 5 mins. The vitamins are left, as you’re not boiling them out.  You can use a grill for all types of meat, chicken. Remember, your stomach is the size of your fist.

I always say, “Its not what you eat, it’s what your thinking about while you eat”.

Give it a try! Its easier than dieting!
