Fit, Sexy and Happy At Any Age!

Has this ever happened to you?  Somebody enters the room and you think to yourself ‘Wow!  What a presence that person has!’  And you notice how other people stop what they’re doing to look at the person as well.  If you would ask them, most people probably couldn’t tell you why exactly he or she draws all this attention.  Often they don’t even fit the stereotypical ‘beauty standard,’ and yet, there is something about them that makes them sexy and attractive to other people.  It almost feels like there is an aura around them.  What exactly is going on here?

Well, let me tell you a little secret:  It’s a mindset.  People who feel comfortable with themselves are generally happy and radiate positive energy wherever they go.  That in turn is being picked up by others and makes that person attractive, even sexy to them.  From a confident walk, to sparkling eyes, to a radiant smile, you can tell they feel good about themselves and it shows.

George Clooney and Queen Latifah are perfect examples for what I just described.  When they show up, people take notice.  You just know they are self-confident and like themselves, have a positive attitude, laugh often and enjoy life, and that makes them very attractive and sexy.

Now, you also can be fit, sexy and happy, no matter what age you are.  As I mentioned, it’s a mindset and a matter of attitude, and you can achieve it by developing a healthy lifestyle, getting in shape with a fit body, de-stressing and simplifying your life, and creating a positive mindset.  And when you do, you will find the  FIT, SEXY AND HAPPY  person that is already inside you just waiting to be awakened.  Visit my website   www.FitwithAndrea.com   and find out how.   🙂

Things Hanging From A Rear View Mirror


Okay, will somebody please explain this picture to me:  While waiting at a stop light right behind a pickup truck, I noticed something hanging from the guy’s rear view mirror.  At first glance it looked like some type of Christmas decoration.  But the second look revealed a pair of brass balls, cojones, or whatever name you like, dangling right next to the guy’s head.  In this part of the country you are confronted with all kinds of things but this was a first for me.   🙂

Now, while chuckling at the sight of these enormous testicles, I was wondering about the message he wanted to send:

a)  I wish I had a pair this big!
b)  My wife cut them off and all I can do is drive around next to them and insist that they are really mine!
c)  Redneck Christmas decoration
d)  Compensation for a small penis
e)  I don’t need a gun rack with my pickup truck, thank you very much, I have a pair of steel balls!
f)  Hey girls, see what you’re missing! ….. Same thing I’m missing!
g)  I entered a contest to be a Chippendale dancer and all I got was a pair of these!
h)  You may not like the look of them, but they have a wonderful scent!

Any suggestions?   🙂

I have yet to wait for the day when a woman decides to display a pair of fake boobs dangling from her rear view mirror.

By the way:  For the brass ball lovers among you and for everybody else who would like to view a gallery of shiny testicles in various colors and sizes in pure amazement, I found this website   www.bullsballs.com .

ENJOY!!!

My Ugly Confrontation With A McCain Supporter

“My statement was a reminder to all Americans that toxic language can lead to destructive behavior.” — Rep. John Lewis, Veteran of the Civil Rights Movement

In light of the recent events at the McCain/Palin KKK rallies, I decided to repost one of my blog entries which in retrospect is very telling of the character of some of the people we see at these rallies.  McCain and Palin with their hateful rhetoric are bringing to the forefront a hatred and racism that is bubbling right below the surface of some people as the following incident clearly demonstrates.  By the way, the entry is from July 22, well before the VP selection, the conventions, and the events of the past few weeks, just right after we knew that it would be a McCain/Obama match-up.  Here it is, word for word:

IGNORANCE

After having come to America from Germany in 1991 and making this city my home, every once in a while I am being reminded that you run into ignorance no matter where you choose to live.  One of those times was a few weeks ago when after a traffic altercation causing me to almost hit the guy cutting right in front of me, I ended up sitting next to him at the stop light that he got caught by only a few hundred yards down the road.  Isn’t it always like that?  Anyway, don’t ask me why I even looked over to him.  I guess I heard him yelling something.  And don’t ask me why I even rolled my window down.  I couldn’t exactly understand what he was yelling, so all I said was ‘I don’t know why you are yelling at me, you were the one almost causing the accident!’

Well, naturally, he picked up on my accent and yelled over ‘Why don’t you go back to Russia?’  Here also, I don’t know why I even corrected him, but after hearing ‘Germany,’ he started this hateful barrage at me including the three words he knew about Germany, two of them being ‘Heil Hitler’ and all kinds of obscenities, telling me how glad he was that America had destroyed Germany in the war and on and on and on.  I literally was completely speechless and just looked at him thinking that this guy certainly was a walking time bomb with all this hatred.  Anyway, at that point I had reached my daily limit of being subjected to ignorance and started to let my window up and just let him know that I was glad that he is not representative of his fellow Americans.  And I thought about an incident we just had a few days prior to that where a woman shot somebody after a traffic incident.  I looked at him and wondered about the irony if his ancestors had emigrated from Germany!

I had my window almost completely up when I heard him yelling ‘John McCain, John McCain!’  And then it was clear to me that my ‘Obama’ sticker most likely was the initial cause of his hateful diatribe.  Now I just hope that he is not representative of his fellow McCain supporters!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Naturally, looking at the racism and hatred incited by McCain/Palin and expressed by their supporters over the past few weeks, the hope stated in my last sentence was a bit optimistic.  Unfortunately, we all know now that this character indeed is representative of a large portion of his fellow McCain supporters.

Bottom line:  Barack Obama brings out the best in people.  John McCain brings out the worst in people.

Sarah Palin In 2012? – Republican Party R.I.P.

The reports of tensions between the ‘Rogue Diva’ and John McCain come a little early, usually that doesn’t become public until after the defeat is finalized.  It’s an indication that everybody wants to position themselves as soon as possible to point fingers and blame others.  McCain, I’m sure, wants to salvage whatever is left of his reputation after his hateful and negative campaign and in the end, his responsibility of having picked a totally unqualified person as his VP candidate.  Sarah Palin, However, the $150,000 hockey mom, might have other ambitions.  There are rumors of her going rogue and staging an insurgency within the McCain camp, disregarding her handlers and advisers.  That can only mean one thing, positioning herself for:

SARAH  PALIN  IN  2012 !!!

If that indeed should be the case, we can collectively pick out a headstone for the Republican party, reading ‘GOP – R.I.P.’ ….. For a decade, or even an entire generation.  I have a sense that we will be witnessing something close to a civil war within the Republican party, starting on November 5th, the day after the election.  And it’s going to be a fight for the soul of the Republican party.  If you look back in history when one or the other party found themselves in the wilderness, that’s what always happened and often it took quite some time before that particular party managed to come back.  The Republican party of today faces such a dilemma that definitely will require deep soul searching and an all out fight between the various factions, and maybe that’s a good thing.

SEARCHING  FOR  THE  SOUL  OF  THE  REPUBLICAN  PARTY !!!

The ever shrinking base consists almost exclusively of evangelical extremists and the racist and nutjob anti-intellectuals we have been witnessing at the McCain and Palin rallies lately.  Sarah Palin is their ‘star’ because she is one of them.  However, other Republicans and everybody else are completely turned off by these radicals and their ‘hero’ Sarah Palin.  So, with this base alone and Sarah Palin as their pick for 2012, the Republican party will remain in the wilderness for a long, long time.  If they want to avoid that prospect, it seems to me that the rest of the party will have to figure out over time how to become relevant again with the ‘normal’ Conservatives and Intellectuals being in charge without alienating the base because they still will need their votes.  The first step to that recovery from an almost certain rout on November 4th will be to

NOMINATE  SOMEBODY  ELSE  IN  2012 !!!

Just a thought.  Not that we particularly care.  

Message to Sarah:  Sorry, you only get one chance to make an initial impression and after flirting with you at first, we have discovered your real character and it’s not a pretty picture.  Sarah, we’re just not that much into you and decided we should start seeing other people.  You probably will be going back to your old boyfriend ‘Alaska,’ but after all that has happened over the past few weeks, the reunion may not be as sweet as you like.  

SARAH  PALIN  HAS  BECOME  SUCH  A  DRAG  ON  MCCAIN,  SHE’S  HIS  ‘DRAG  QUEEN.’   🙂

Show Off Your Sexy Arms!

     

A lot of us aren’t genetically predispositioned to have toned and sexy arms.  Combine that with the loss of skin elasticity as we age and it’s really a double whammy.  There’s good news, however.  With a little persistence, you will be able to get shapely, toned and sexy arms.  The first thing to emphasize here is regular cardio workout of at least 30 minutes on most days of the week (treadmill, exercise bike, brisk walk, jogging).  This will help you with losing fat all over your body.  In conjunction with the cardio workout, experts suggest strength training with appropriate weights for your fitness level on 2-3 days a week targeting each muscle group.  The following two exercises are effective in giving your arms the well-toned and sexy look you desire.  If you are persistent, you will notice positive changes after a relatively short time.

1.  KARATE  PUNCHES

Hold 1-2 pounds dumbbells in each hand, raise arms to shoulder level and start punching up to 50 times.  After a few weeks, do two sets of up to 50 punches and increase it to three sets after yet another few weeks.

2.  SHOULDER  PRESSES

Hold your hands next to your ears, holding 5-10 pounds dumbbells, elbows to the side.  Raise weights up and then straight back down.  Start out with two sets of 12 repetitions and add a third set after a few weeks.

So, are you ready for your little strapless dress?   🙂
