Cardio Style

I just finished a fifteen minute cardio workout.  Even though it was primarily a cardio workout, my shoulders and arms are feeling wonderfully stretched right now.


First I stretched out using the therabands— I did an overhand jab with both arms. I was able to keep that going for a while.  I then moved on to the hand peddler and I worked them both forwards and backwards.  I then did crossovers with the high quality, durable, and attractive resistance cords.  I went back to overhand jabs with the therabands and finished with leg crossovers with the resistance cords.

What was new this time was that I worked out in a rocking recliner.  Before I had worked out in a chair or while standing.  This time I tried the device from a VERY comfortable recliner.  What was neat was the extra rocking action I got as I was working my arms.  And when the workout was over (fifteen minutes!) I had a wonderful place to rest without even moving.


I’d like to take a moment to talk about how good looking the device is.  The CEO has taken to calling it the “Louis Vuitton” of therapy and fitness equipment.  It is fun to look at the rainbow of colors represented by the therabands and resistance cords:  red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple—-  the entire rainbow is there!  Being that it is so colorful and not intrusive, it’s a great statement piece for any living room or bedroom.

And now, back to my water bottle.  Another great workout— fifteen minutes, no driving to the gym.  This device is great for injured athletes and the disabled, but it’s clearly great for this average mom as well.

More observations about Stuck In Bed Fitness

As their social media guru, I’m back with more observations about the Stuck In Bed Fitness/ In Bed Med Recovery therapy device.  I was encouraged to use it for just ten minutes today and do some very difficult exercises.

Direct Sales Versus Network Marketing

When I tell people that I started out in direct sales and that now I represent both direct sales and network marketing, their eyes glaze over.  To the average Joe, from what it appears, both are the same and only the lucky do well as most simply bug their friends and families. Here’s what IContinue Reading

Absorbing Another’s Team Members Or Customers

Sometimes, a team member of yours leaves your company, leaving HER team members in YOUR unit.  Sometimes, a local friend who isn’t even in your unit leaves your company and asks you to service her customers.  And sometimes, very sadly, your team member passes away. My mother in law passed away last week after aContinue Reading

Content, Conversation, Distribution

I read something neat from Lisa Pretto of InkBig:  She explains that email is the distribution mechanism, while a blog is the content center and social media is the conversation mechanism. This concept very neatly ties all aspects of the marketing section of business together, doesn’t it? I’ve been feeling guilty lately for not beingContinue Reading

Email Lists Direct Sellers Should Join

Direct sellers often wonder whose emails they should trust and on whose lists they should remain as emails become more frequent and sitting in front of the computer becomes more overwhelmingly easy to do.  From fourteen years in the business, I have some current lists I love  (aside from my own!).  A quick tip:  checkContinue Reading
