Tracy Anderson Method - Post Pregnancy Workout Review and Giveaway Ends 10/17/12 at 7 PM EST

Total Fitness DVD's sent me Tracy Anderson Method - Post Pregnancy Workout to review.  I am becoming a fan of Tracy Anderson.  This is the second workout of hers that I have tried and I am loving both of them.  

I admit that she doesn't give great cues.  You have to watch the television to know what moves you are doing but after the first or second time you do the workout you will know what is going on and what to do.  She does some moves that seem awkward at first but once you get the hang of it you will really feel the effect it has on your muscles.  I was sore for two days after the first time I did this workout.  

The ab workout is complete and works parts of my abs that I didn't know that I had.  I love her method and it works.  She suggest you do this workout 4-6 times a week for best results.  I prefer to do a different workout each day so I haven't done that but I know that with 4-6 times a week you will see amazing results.




Product Description
I am so proud that you have chosen to have me as your teacher and design your healthiest body. I have dedicated over a decade to creating the tools, movements, and prescriptions to keep your muscles awake and alert and be able to give you the body you desire. No one in fitness has ever created the collection of content that the Tracy Anderson Method delivers to you. With this program, your results will never plateau or fail you like any fitness programs you may have tried in the past.

This DVD is for new moms who want to start their workouts after giving birth but do not want to push themselves too hard to get back into shape with traditional workout DVDs. While similar to other Tracy Anderson Method workouts, this post-pregnancy DVD focuses on regaining your abdominal strength and helping the skin on your stomach adhere to your muscles again. This is a restorative workout that I also recommend for older clients or people with injuries. This is a complete Tracy Anderson Method workout and is also great for beginners to the Method as they can also learn the basics and fundamentals. I recommend that you do this workout until you feel you have completely regained your strength and can begin your Metamorphosis workouts.
Love, Tracy

''Truly a miracle. Never did I imagine that in my 30s, after two children, I would be able to change my body to the degree to which I have. Tracy's method works! All you have to do is put the time in and you will see results you never thought possible.'' - Gwyneth Paltrow

''Tracy Anderson's Method has proven to be the best exercise program for my body'' - Madonna

Shrink Belly Fat - Denise Austin Review & Giveaway Ends 10/16/12 at 7 PM EST



Total Fitness DVD's sent me the Shrink Belly Fat - Denise Austin DVD to review.  I have always been a fan of Denise Austin and I am excited to try this new workout and tell you about it.  I have done the three workouts several times now.  I did them all together which is quite a challenge and I have done them separately.  I love the cardio abs and the classic abs.  The athletic abs is a new twist on ab work for me and I enjoyed it as well.  I have had some truly sore abs after completing this workout.  Denise is easy to follow.  I love how her personality shines through and she is always so positive and joyful.  I can count on Denise to lift my spirits when I pop her DVD in and do the workout.

Belly fat is the last place for me to lose and I am hoping that with consistent ab workouts and additional cardio I will get that belly fat off of me and have some rock hard abs for once in my life.  I love focusing on the problem areas and this is just the DVD for me because my belly is the remaining problem area for me at this time.


Flatten your belly and tone a slim, sexy waistline with Denise Austin's incredible ab-blasting program, SHRINK BELLY FAT. All three, belly fat-burning workouts use different methods to strategically target the core by working every midsection muscle from all possible angles. Each fun and fresh 15-minute workout zaps stubborn belly fat to reveal a tighter, trimmer tummy. Stick with it and you can have leaner abs in no time!

Cardio Abs (15 min): Blast belly fat and burn mega calories with ab-sculpting circuits like heart-pounding squat-jacks that get you off the floor to tone the core.

Athletic Abs (15 min): Banish the bulge with challenging total-body moves like walking planks and sidearm holds that combine strength and coordination to tighten your tummy.

Classic Abs (15 min): Firm your middle with fine-tuned favorites that isolate the upper and lower abs, the obliques, and the back for a complete core makeover.

You can enter to win this DVD in the giveaway below.  If you are like me and want to shrink your belly fat then this is the workout DVD for you!

I Lost 82 Pounds In 38 Weeks on Nutrisystem #NSNation

Another week on Nutrisystem and this week I lost 2 more pounds!  I am ecstatic.  Losing weight feels amazing.  I feel confident and strong and energetic.  I can't believe that I have made it this far.  I am lower than my original goal weight but I am still overweight so I will continue to lose until I get to my true goal weight which will be on the lower end of the height weight chart for my height.  I want to be thin for once in my life and I truly believe that Nutrisystem will turn my dream into a reality.

I have steadily lost weight since I began back on 12/29/11.  I have lost 82 pounds in 38 weeks.  Which is amazing!  These results show that Nutrisystem works.  There is no reason why you shouldn't sign up and get started today!  The sooner you start, the sooner you could be at your goal weight.

With Nutrisystem it truly is easy.  They have the meals planned out for you.  You choose what you are going to eat for each meal and then follow through with the plan and watch the weight come off. 

I have been consistently working out and eating the plan.  I really haven't strayed from it much at all.  Occasionally I will have something like a sip of coke or some cream in my coffee but other than that I am so good about what I eat these days.  This is a plan that is reasonable.  I am not starving and I do not feel deprived.  I am able to have chocolate everyday if that's what I choose to do.  I am so happy Nutrisystem chose me to be in their nation of bloggers and I hope that you will join our Nutrisystem family if you are ready to lose weight!


 Want to lose weight and get healthy on Nutrisystem? Join today by calling 1-888-853-4689 or by visiting http://www.nutrisystem.com/nsblog.

Michael Jackson – BAD25 Review



In Stores 9/18/12

MICHAEL JACKSON – BAD: 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition 3CD + DVD (Epic/Legacy)
The era of BAD represented Michael Jackson’s creative ‘coming of age’ as a solo artist in charge of every aspect of his career – from recording to touring to endorsements to merchandising.  This was the first album on which nearly all of the songs were written by Michael.  It was also was the first album in history to produce FIVE consecutive #1 singles.  It was the first time Michael would tour as a solo artist − his vision, his decisions on what the show would be.  The enormous success of the BAD album and tour was a pivotal moment in Michael Jackson’s growth as a composer, performer and producer, cementing his role as the King of Pop.  BAD produced ten chart-topping singles, nine groundbreaking short films, and to date the BAD album has generated over 45 million units in sales.  BAD was nominated for six Grammys and won two.  The album also earned Michael the first-ever Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMA Awards.  Now, 25 years after the phrase “Who’s Bad” became a generation’s cultural catchphrase, the legendary album and record-breaking BAD tour are being celebrated.

BAD: 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition comprises 3 CDs and a DVD.
CD1 features a remaster of the original album.
CD 2 showcases rare and previously unreleased material recorded as part of the BAD sessions in Michael’s studio, including early demo versions of songs from the album as well as outtakes from the sessions. This CD will also include new 2012 remixes featuring Pitbull, Afrojack and Nero.
CD3 includes audio from the sound truck recordings of the July 16th Wembley Stadium performance in London. The first-ever live Michael Jackson CD to be released, this is the only concert from the BAD Tour known to exist on multi-tracks.

The DVD features the first-ever authorized release of Michael’s legendary July 16, 1988 concert at Wembley.  The Wembley Stadium concert is one complete show, exactly as Michael performed it for Prince Charles, Princess Diana and the 72,000 fans in the audience.  The DVD was sourced from Michael Jackson’s personal VHS copy of the performance as shown on the JumboTrons during the concert.  This footage was only recently unearthed and is the only known copy of the show to exist.  The visuals have been restored and the audio quality enhanced so that fans can share in the excitement of that famous night.


Additionally, BAD: 25th Anniversary will be released in a Standard Edition featuring the same tracklists as Discs 1 & 2 detailed above.  A BAD: 25th Anniversary vinyl picture disc will be sold separately, featuring the original 10 tracks remastered.  And finally, the Wembley concert will have a standalone DVD release.

Ellen Barrett Barefoot Cardio DVD Review

Ellen Barrett is one of my favorite fitness instructors.  I enjoy her technique and teaching style.  She is easy to follow and her voice is nice too!  She always tells you what she is going to do next before she does it.  I have wanted this DVD for quite sometime and when I got it to review I was so excited. 

Barefoot Cardio is a feel good fat burning workout and I love that it doesn't require shoes.  I have become accustomed to doing my morning workouts barefoot anyway.  I do not like putting on socks and shoes at 4 in the morning. 

The workout starts with a 6 minute warm-up.  Then you go into the step kick & balance series.  Next you do the happy feet/pony.  Giant step scissor series is next and then side tap foot out/in (which I love), next you do the reach/twist with wide stance on opposite leg.  Then the wrap twist.  Star arms series is next and then the heart lift and horse shoe series, and last but not least the cool down.  You will feel energized and ready to face the day when you have completed barefoot cardio.

This is a fun workout that is sure to get your heart rate up and your blood pumping.  I really enjoy it each time I decide to put it in the DVD player. 

Stilettos and Self Defense Review & Giveaway Ends 10/15/12 at 7 PM EST (ARV $68.85)





Self Defense Expert & Celebrity Personal Trainer, Jennifer Cassetta releases a self-defense DVD series "Stilettos and Self Defense" on September 10, 2012.  I was lucky enough to get a copy to review.  This three DVD series was created by self-defense and fitness expert Jennifer Cassetta to empower women everywhere.  The course was created after Jennifer herself had a run in with a predator and successfully defended herself as a result of her years of HapKiDo training.  Jennifer melds her training as a self-defense expert, personal trainer and nutritionist to share her techniques and knowledge in her three part DVD series that includes Stilettos and Self Defense, Defensive Tactics and Improvised Weapons.  All three DVDs can be purchased at www.jennifercassetta.com.

Stilettos and Self Defense™

This is the ultimate self-defense DVD for women of all ages. Jennifer Cassetta teaches women the ABC’s of self-defense for the beginner.

Defensive Tactics

Attacks come as punches, grabs, and chokes and Defensive Tactics will teach techniques to defend against all three.


Improvised Weapons

Jennifer shows you how to use ordinary items that you may have on you, like pens, keys and magazines, and how to use them as weapons.

Even though these are not fitness DVDs they still give you a workout as you learn the proper techniques and moves to fend off an attack.  Jennifer Cassetta shows that looking confident and being confident are both important when personal boundaries are crossed and when you are threatened or attacked.  She demonstrates the moves, while wearing heels, to show that no matter what women wear, what their size, weight or physical strength, every woman can learn how to apply defense techniques in everyday social situations.

Review:
I really enjoyed these DVDs.  I love that I feel empowered now.  I feel as though I will be safe when I am out and about.  I am not scared to walk alone.  I am still cautious but I am alert and feel ready in case of an attack.   I haven't been trained in martial arts since I was a kid but working through these DVDs gave me a sense of that training returning.  I feel as though I know what to do in any circumstance that may arise.  This series is so helpful and I recommend it to all women.  We are all put into situations that we do not feel safe in and knowing some basic self defense techniques may really come in handy some day.

Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktail Review #SSCheers

Recently I was given the opportunity to try Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails.  I am a member of She Speaks and they sent me these to review for my blog.  I am not a big drinker but occasionally I do like to sip on a cocktail.  I remember drinking a lot of Arbor Mist in my college days.  They offer nice wine coolers.  The new frozen wine cocktails are amazing.  They are so easy to freeze and enjoy.  I really enjoyed all four flavors.

My favorite is the Merlot Blackberry.  I received three flavors to try and I really liked all three.  The flavors I tried are Blackberry Merlot, Strawberry White Zinfandel, White Pear Pinot Grigio.  I would love to serve these at our next barbeque.  Each pouch is big enough for two glasses.  So you can have two glasses or you can share.  I shared with my husband and he liked these too!  I know that my friends will really enjoy these as much as I did.  I can't wait to get to the store and get some more.

Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails are super easy, just freeze and serve. No mixing, ice or blenders.

I received Arbor Mist Wines to sample through She Speaks. Opinions expressed are my own.

Mitsy's Magnificent Makeover DVD Review & Giveaway Ends 10/15/12 at 7 PM EST

Review

Mitsy's Magnificent Makeover a Buzzy Funny Productions release.  Eric and Heather Smith are a husband and wife production team.  They had a dream to create animated shows with positive stories that parents could feel good about showing their kids.  With desktop technology and they creative talent and tech savvy, their animated DVD Mitsy's Magnificent Makeover was born.  The DVD follows young Mitsy, who is on top of the world.  She is about to start a new school year and she is preparing for her upcoming birthday party that is going to be the social event of the year.  That is until Leelu Belle comes to town.  The DVD introduces character interaction and twists and turns.  Lessons are learned in friendship, tolderance and good vs evil.

Even though the Smiths created their 41 minute DVD using their home computers, the production is incerdibly professional.  "I was actually helping to develop a feature length animated film whent he recession hit, and the funding was cut," said Eric Smith.  "So I decided the time was right to invest in ourselves and build our own animation company in the model of Pixar Studios."  Heather Smith, a Theater and English major and former elementary school teacher, worked ont he script.  After months of polishing and revising it, they came up with a storyline that they both liked.  One that explores themes of dealing with bullies, obsession with popularity, and the value of true friendship. 

This DVD features both widescreen and full screen versions, behind the scenes with the characters and Dr. Facade's Freaky Formula Game.

During the DVD creation, instead of first creating pencil and paper storyboards.  Eric went directly to the animatic stage (a rough computer animated storyline).  He also helped develop a new software "plug-in" that dramatically speeds up the animation process.  This new technology allows for the creation of twenty to twenty five seconds of animation a day compared to the industry average of just a few seconds per day.  Beyond the techinal aspects, Eric and Heather voiced the characters themselves, wrote two original songs and scored the music for the entire feature.  The majority of the voice work was done by Heather, while Eric, a long-time piano and guitar player, scored and played all the instruments.

Mitsy's Magnificent Makeover is just the first in what Eric and Heather Smith hope will be a long line of kid friendly, story-focused offerings from Buzzy Funny Productions.  "We want to offer something that parents can truly enjoy sharing with their kids - good stories that reinforce positive vaues, and that are presented in a way that's fun to watch."

We really enjoyed this DVD.  Knowing that it was created by a couple on a computer made it more fun to watch for me.  I love that they are creating stories with positive messages that are fun to watch.  I highly recommend this movie.  Our children love it and have watched it several times since we recieved it.  

Giveaway: (you must follow this blog publicly on google friend connect to enter, contiguous USA only, no PO Boxes, leave a separate comment for each entry you complete and put your email address in your comment if it's not visible on your blogger profile)

The Holidays are Almost Here, Time To Get Shopping!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kmart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

BLG_Logo_Horizontal.jpg (3 documents, 3 total pages)

I have just decided to start shopping for holiday gifts.  I know I am not ready and they are only a few months away.  I have to get the ball rolling so that I am not shopping the night before Christmas trying to get everything we need.  I have been browsing the Kmart website and found some really cool stuff that I can't wait to get.  The only problem is that we don't exactly have the money for everything right now.  I know that if I don't buy now I may miss the chance because the items might not still be in stock when I am able to pay for them.  

Kmart has layaway which is exactly what I need.  I am able to choose what I want to get, put it on free layaway and then pay as I am able to until the products are mine.  Then I will be ready for Christmas without any stress of waiting until the last minute.  While you are there you can also enter Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway.Kmart Free Layaway Grid 09_12.jpg

 

 

Kmart_Logo_B&W.jpg (3 documents, 3 total pages)

 

I love Kmart and I love that I can still use layaway.  These are hard times and I would love to get everything on our Christmas lists.  But in order to do that I have to start now and get everything on layaway so that it's there when we need it.

 

Thank you Kmart for layaway!

Leslie Sansone's Just Walk 4 Mile Power Walk DVD Review & Giveaway Ends 10/09/12 at 7 PM EST



Certified instructor description: Each of the four segments combines Leslie’s ultra-motivating enthusiasm with a different walking technique. The movement variety keeps your muscles challenged and your body energized. The two “classic walk” sections feature subtle variations of Leslie’s traditional low-impact walking exercises (e.g. adding in a grapevine or hamstring curl). The two “power walk” segments are a little slower, but more intense. They include simple aerobic combinations and higher-impact cardio intervals. These two-minute “surges” feature jogs, twists and low jumps (designed to maximize fat-burning without stressing your joints). The DVD also has premixes that let you play only the classic or only the power sequences. ©2012. DVD has: Has 2 premixes (33 min. alternate workouts), Wide screen, Close captions, Region 1.

Review:
I have been enjoying this workout for a little over a week now.  There are three options on this DVD.  The 4 mile combo walk, classic 2 mile walk or the 2 mile express walk.  I have done them all and each one is wonderful.  My favorite is the 4 mile combo walk.  I am at an intermediate fitness level now and the combo walk has some high intensity intervals that I really enjoy!

Leslie is always motivating and great with the cues.  She tells you what is coming up next and gives you time to get the moves down before she moves to the next one.  I loved the variety and the pace of the 4 mile combo walk.  It is a wonderful workout and I really had a fast heart beat and a sweat going throughout the entire workout.  This is my favorite Leslie DVD so far.  But I only have one more to compare it to.  

If you would like to win your very own copy of this DVD enter the giveaway below.

I Lost 80 Pounds in 37 Weeks On Nutrisystem #NSNation


Nutrisystem ROCKS!  This past week I lost 3 more pounds for a total of 80 since I started back 37 weeks ago.  I am on my way to my goal.   Each week that passes I am amazed by what I have accomplished.  I really didn't think that I would ever be thin in my life but now I know that I can be thin and will be thin.  It's just a matter of time.  I know what it takes and I will do it until I am to goal and after in maintanence as well.

Every time you lose 10 pounds with Nutrisystem they mail you a bear.  I am going to have 8 of them now.  They are so cute!  I proudly display my bears in my living room for all to see that I have lost a lot of weight with Nutrisystem.  I am going to make a video soon and show you all the food that I get each month and how it comes delivered.  I know that some of you are considering getting started and I hope that you go ahead and do it.

Tracy Anderson Method: Mat Workout Review & Giveaway Ends 10/04/12 at 7 PM EST


 
Collage Video sent me Tracy Anderson Method: Mat Workout to review and they have also offered to send a copy to a winner from my blog.  Collage Video has an awesome website with great descriptions of their workout DVDs and customer reviews too.  They also have clips from the DVD so you can check the video out before you make the purchase.  

Certified instructor description: A fluid series of ballet and modern dance-style exercises (mostly standing, not matwork). It's a free-flowing program that encourages you to just move with music. There's not much distracting cuing — instead, Tracy asks you to "simply watch me and do what I do." The standing segment has three distinct sections: legs, abs and arms. Each one begins with the larger muscles and then proceeds to the smaller "accessory" muscles. They're high-rep exercises that work your body in multiple planes and angles (fast-paced versions of classics like arabesques, shoulder rotations and rib isolations). The floorwork also targets your legs and abs with fitness-style moves like crunches and leg lifts. Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2012. DVD has: Wide screen.

This is the first Tracy Anderson workout that I have done.  I have heard amazing things about her and couldn't wait to try it out for myself.  This morning I popped the DVD and got started.  I didn't know what to expect but with the name mat workout I thought I would be lying down most of the time.  This is not the case.  There is a segment at the end that is done lying down but most of the DVD is done standing up. 

This workout is quite a challenge for me and I know that my entire body is going to sore tomorrow.  Sore is a good thing!  That means my muscles are getting stronger and they are going to be better looking!

The DVD starts with a 6 minute warm up which really gets you warmed up and quick.  Then it goes right into the 34 minutes of standing toning.  After that you do 12 minutes of lying down toning and then the cool down stretch for a total of 56 minutes of workout.  I highly recommend this DVD to anyone working on getting their entire body in shape and looking great!

Tracey Mallett's The Booty Barre –Total New Body DVD Review and Giveaway Ends 10/03/12 at 7 PM EST


I am a huge Tracey Mallett fan.  I already reviewed two of her DVDs in the past and so I was excited when I heard that I would be able to review another one.  The DVD that I reviewed is called The Booty Barre –Total New Body DVD.

The Booty Barre –Total New Body DVD is split into it FOUR blocks for those who don’t have a whole hour to dedicate to exercise.

Pick and choose your section or do the whole 65 minute workout!

The workout consists of the following sections:
• Fusion Warm-up
• Upper Body weighted series (need 3-5 lbs dumbbells)
• The Barre section is modified for the home exerciser with a sturdy chair
• Lower body floor conditioning and flexibility

Review:

This workout is slightly longer then I am used to so I had to get up extra early to have time for the whole thing.  I did it on a Monday morning when I was really feeling energetic and ready to tackle something new and exciting.  I have already done some her Tracey's workouts so I knew that I love her style and her cues are simple and easy to follow.  Her voice is nice and calming too.  She is absolutely one of my favorite instructors.  I enjoyed this workout.  The 65 minute length is challenging for me and when I was done with the workout I felt great.  I was invigorated and I can't wait to do this one again.  It will absolutely become a staple in my workout routine. 

I love her Barre section as well as the lower body floor conditioning and flexibility.  She really knows how to reach those places that need to be toned and fit.  I aspire to look like Tracey one day and with workouts like these I may get there sooner than later.  I have quite a ways to go but each day that I workout I am one step closer to achieving my goals.

Ozeri CardioTech Pro Series Digital Blood Pressure Monitor with Heart Health WHO Indicator Review and Giveaway Ends 10/01/12 at 7 PM EST


Ozeri CardioTech Pro Series Digital Blood Pressure Monitor with Heart Health WHO Indicator

Product Features

  • Portable, accurate, and simple-to-use with clinically proven technology.
  • New MWI (Measure While Inflate) technology automatically inflates to the appropriate level (no adjustments required) while reducing measurement time.
  • Stores 180 blood pressure readings (90 x 2 users) with date and time recordings.
  • Automatic Irregular heartbeat (Arrhythmia) detection and WHO* Hypertension Indicator.
  • Push-button access to Average blood pressure calculation.
I love that this is so easy to you.  Just put it on your wrist and hit start.  When you use it you should be sitting down with your elbow on the table and your wrist above your heart.  I have used it several days in a row and I get a consistent reading.  I love that it has a memory and I can look back and see what my readings were in the past.  There is an indicator on the side that tells you when your blood pressure is good or when it is high.  I have borderline high blood pressure and it's neat to see what it is throughout the day using this easy to use blood pressure monitor.
