The Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away Review ~ It's Like Having 3 Vacuums In One

I received the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away for review purposes.  No other form of compensation took place.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I am not young any longer and getting down on the floor isn't as easy as it used to be.   Don't get me wrong.  I can still get down, but at my age... I shouldn't have to be doing that. That being said.

Let me tell you one of the features of the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away that I think is Brilliant!
With the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away,  The vacuum pod detaches allowing you to reach under the lowest spaces.   I can tell you.... this is the first time in my life that I haven't had to get on my belly to clean under my bed.    I NEVER had a vacuum that would go under a bed like that.  NOW... I do!!!
You can see in this picture how flat the Powered Lift-Away
gets.   No more getting down on my belly to clean under my bed.
There is also an LED light that comes on and you can see all the way
under the bed.  But, I couldn't get my picture to turn out with it on and
I wanted to make sure you can see how low it gets.
I can reach under my bed really far.  And since the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away has 3 floor settings, I can vacuum anywhere.  The settings are Hard Floor, Low Pile and Thick Carpet.  Plus!! you can use this as an upright or on a canister.

When they say this vacuum deep cleans, they aren't kidding.  After I used it, my carpets looked almost new again.  It seems to just pull the dirt out from where it hides deep in the carpet.

The Shark Totator Powered Lift-Away also makes cleaning my hard wood kitchen floor a breeze.  It has a Hard Floor Genie attachment that makes it like a suction powered dust mop.  Nothing gets away from it.  Instead of spreading your dirt around, it sucks it up and holds it tight.

I also like how easy it is to now vacum for spider webs.  I hate those things... not that I get many, but I do get a few.   With the Powered Lift-Away, I can suck those webs up like magic.  Hopefully I get the spider too!!

My Daughters Dog isn't really impressed with my new vacuum.   I wanted to see how well it would work on pet hair.  So,..  we cut some hair off and put it on my Daughters couch.  We rubbed it in good so it was stuck.    It only took one swipe with the TruePet Mini Motorized Brush Attachment and all the hair was gone.




 I Am Very Impressed with this vacuum cleaner.   It does so many different things.  It is like having 3 Vacuums in one.


  Check out my video and see some of the other ways I used it.

With cleaning made easier and more time on my hands, you will find me relaxing more often and reading a book.... or even doing Yoga.








Incredible Maneuverability
With just a push of a button, the Shark Rotator instantly transforms into a Powered Lift_Away extending the reach of the motorized cleaning head head under hard to reach areas.  Deep clean around, behind and under any hard to reach area in your home.

Use the Powered Lift-Away mode when you want the most amazing cleaning maneuverability.
The Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away makes
my carpet and furniture, look cleaner.

How to make your iPhone last longer ~ Yes! I Have Finally Gotten An iPhone 6

For years, my Hubs and Daughter have been trying to talk me into getting an iPhone.  I kept telling them NO........  LEAVE ME ALONE.   All I needed to do was talk on the phone if I needed it.

I really didn't want to text but my Daughter and Granddaughters thought it was really funny to keep me texting.   They would bet on how many times I would text before I told them " If you want to talk to me, call me.  No more texting "

I just got my first iPhone last week.  It is the new iPhone 6. I want to make it last as long as I can so I ask our salesman at Verizon,  what I should do?






Make Your iPhone Last Longer

Do NOT use an off brand charger.  They may be cheaper, but they can make my phone get hot and burn up.

When you do charge your phone.  Make sure you unplug it as soon as it is charged.  Over charging can drain the battery life.

Auto Brightness setting will drain your battery faster

Unnecessary apps can also drain your battery

GPS location tracker... shut it off!!  It causes your apps to scan constantly to keep track of where you are.

Lock your phone so theives can't use it and use a really hard password

Shut off your email notifications

Shut off the WiFi and Bluetooth when you don't need them

Turn your phone off at night and back on the next day

Do NOT leave your iPhone in you hot car in the summer nor your cold car in the winter.  Also, keep them out of the hot sun.  Room temp is the best.

What do I like most about the iPhone?
I like that I don't have to type every letter to send a text.  I just talk into it and send it.    You have to be careful though because Siri will sometimes not understand what you are saying.   But....  there are so many other things I like about it.   I don't know what I did before I had it.

Now I want a portable battery power station for a charge on the go!!

Weight Watchers Pick Your Spot Stability Ball Kit @LisaWheelerFit ~ Great Gift Idea!!

Weight Watchers Pick Your Spot Stability Ball Kit With Instructor Lisa Wheeler












The Weight Watchers Pick Your Spot Stability Ball Kit comes with the Stability Ball, a hand pump to pump your ball up a 10 week exercise tracker and some great coupons with $$ off and some recipes.
It also comes with a DVD with 4 Complete Workouts.  Each workout can be for a beginner, intermediate or someone who is advanced.

The Weight Watchers Pick Your Spot Stability Ball Kit focuses on
Belly
Butt
Thighs
Upper Body

Tone your belly, butt, thighs and more! The stability ball is one of the most popular fitness tools around for good reason: it adds bonus core strengthening and toning to any exercise. You probably won't even realize it, but just maintaining your balance on the ball will cause you to constantly activate your core muscles. And who doesn't want a tighter, more toned midsection? This DVD features four different segments that use the stability ball and target specific areas of the body that most of us want to work: the belly, butt, thighs and upper body, especially the arms and shoulders. With beginner, intermediate and advanced versions of the exercises, it's easy to get started and go at your own pace. You can use a set three- to 10-pound dumbbells for the upper body workout; but if you are new to exercise or just jumping back in, you can start with no external resistance and build up from there. This is a simple way to tone up and a fun addition to your overall weight loss plan.

Weight Watchers: Pick Your Spot Stability Ball DVD/VUDU Kit:
  • Features 4 different segments that use the stability ball and target specific areas of the body
  • Beginner, intermediate and advanced versions of the exercises
  • Use a set 3 to 10 lb dumbbells for the upper body workout


I do a lot of my night workouts with a stability ball.   I really have no idea what or how to do it right.  That is why I was so happy to see this kit.

Now, I can find the ball exercise that works for me.



I ended up leaving this ball for my Daughter to use.   She has been having some problems with her back and needs to strengthen her core.
These Exercises Will Do That!!




If you are looking for a GREAT Gift for a special friend or a loved one.  You can't go wrong buying them this kit.

element 5 Day Yoga With instructor Ashley Turner


You all know how much I like doing yoga.  I think it helps keep my body from feeling as old as I really am.     I know after doing a workout with Ashley, I feel more limber.
The Strength And Restore session really helps with my neck and shoulder problem that I have had for awhile now.   Although, every session seems to help with one or another problem I have.
Getting old isn't any fun, so if I can do yoga and get old gracefully... that is what I am going to do.
The Core Power is one I totally need.  I have a lot of lower back issues and strengthening my abdomen is needed.

This DVD seems like it was designed with all my issues in mind.   I can choose a practice I like, or I can create my own.

Easy reference cards of the 10 best tension reliving poses
2 Massage Roller Balls





I do love using the roller balls on my back and shoulders.  They feel so good and seem to massage away a lot of tension I have around my shoulder blades.


My Daughters little kitty thinks me being on the floor at her level is Play Time!!

She makes me laugh so hard that I can't really do much of anything that is considered yoga.  Let alone roll on the balls.  This cat thinks the balls are to play with.  I had to put them away.





Stretch, Release & Restore Yoga


Stretch tight muscles and roll out tension through self-massage with a massage ball.  Applying gentle pressure and rolling on a massage can stimulate a restorative effect on the body--helping to improve blood flow, enhance joint health, reduce muscle fatigue and soreness, and reliefe pain associated with chronic stress or repetitive motion injuries.  The combination of yoga and massage ball therapy can help produce the ultimate anti-aging benefit: to feel more free and youthful in your body.

This is the work that only you can do for yourself to release strainand stiffness in your body, let go of the existing tension patterns in your life and generate more vitality.

Daily Yoga ~
Morning: tone, energize & invigorate
Evening: Stretch Calm and restore
2 Yoga Programs.  Morning and Evening

Instructor Mia Togo

LOL  Not sure what is up with my hair.  Oh well.  It has had
much worse days than this..








I try to do some form of yoga every day.  Even when I am not home, I try to get my stretching in.   Really... it keeps my limber and things don't hurt when I am limber.

I am at my Daughters in this picture and as you can see... her animals think it is exercise time for them too.


Morning Yoga:
If you want to get your blood flowing and feel alive, the morning yoga is great for that.  You will be lead through some poses such as.. the cobra,  sun salutation, downward facing dog and many more to help get you invigorated and on your way.

Evening Yoga:
Since I do some form of exercise every night before I go to bed, I decided to give the Evening stretch a try.  It does help with relaxing.   The stretching helps a lot with night time cramps that I sometimes get in my legs.  I learned if I get a good night time stretch, I don't have any problems.


Filmed in a serene garden overlooking the Pacific Ocean, these two very special programs can help you strengthen and tone your body, reduce stress, boost energy levels and create a feeling of balance in your life. The morning sequence starts with an energizing flow to stimulate circulation, build muscle tone and awaken your body, mind and spirit. It progresses to an invigorating stretch and ends with a grounding savasana to cultivate clarity and focus. As you build both physical and mental strength, this practice will help you greet your day with more confidence and vitality. The evening sequence is designed to release the stress and tension that can accrue throughout the day. It will restore your energy with a combination of gentle exercises to relieve tension in your neck and shoulders, detoxifying twists to help revitalize your spine and deep stretches to release tight muscles and let your life force flow freely. This sequence will help create peace of mind to prepare you for a restful night’s sleep.

So here I am giving it a try.  This is going to take some practice since I am not the best when it comes to dancing.   But, I will be toning my muscles and building strength and stamina while trying to get better at this.  So it is a Win, Win.

I can feel my ab muscles when I do most of the moves.   That means I am VERY out of shape.   When my abs are weak, I tend to have problems with my back.


I love using DVDs to learn new ways to exercise my body.  I can do them in the comfort of my own home.   It has been so cold here in Pennsylvania, that I really don't want to go out in the cold unless I absolutely have to .


Have you learned a new form of exercise lately?

I am going to start out with the SLOW Burn since I am a sissy.  I will work up to the 40 Minute Super Burn.
I don't walk outside much in the winter.  I have had a hip replacement, and if I fall... I could be laid up for months.   That is why I like Leslie Sansones Just Walk DVDs.
I can walk daily with her and not have the fear of falling and breaking something.  Plus, she keeps my attention.

I don't really need to lose weight, but I do need to tone up my saggy rear end.  Walking using my arms and core muscles help tone every part of my body.
Here is my Daughter and I at a color run.
I was of course walking!  Look at the paint on my feet!
There will be no more outside walking for me until nice weather sets in.
That is why I am thankful for Leslie Sansone and her Just Walk DVDs

Move Your DNA By Katy Bowman M.S.


There are a lot of books out there telling you how to fix this or that part of your body.  Most of them have no idea what they are talking about.  But, this book is different.

Move Your DNA ( Restore Your Health Through Natural Movement)
I am a huge believer that if you don't move it, you are going to lose it.     I know if I don't exercise, things hurt.  

Most of these exercise are things you can do while you are sitting around or standing around doing nothing.   For instance... a calf stretch.     In the picture, they show stretching on a towel, but they also show on another page where you can go Au Naturel and stretch on rocks or natural terrain.

I think this would totally help stop those night leg cramps called Charley Horses.  Those things hurt like the dickens.

I also think, if I had read this book when I was younger, I wouldn't have ended up having to have a hip replacement.

Are ailments like low back and pelvic pain, faulty knees and hips, and osteoporosis really our genetic fate, or is something else going on?



Buried under “You Are What You Eat” headlines is another perspective supported by the latest research: you are, actually, how you move.
The flopped-over fin of captive orca whales has alerted us to “diseases of captivity,” and so should the long list of ailments we’ve come to accept as normal in our own bodies. Not all health issues are brought about by aging, poor genes, or imperfect diets. Many are triggered by our mechanical environment, and how we have moved (or haven’t) over a lifetime.
In Move Your DNA, biomechanist Katy Bowman explains our deep need for movement—right down to the cellular level. She also addresses up-to-the-minute questions, including:
  • Is sitting really the new smoking?
  • Are standing workstations helpful or harmful?
  • What’s the safest way to move toward minimal shoes?
  • Are Kegels and core exercises solving problems or creating them?
  • Do we really need cardio exercise?
  • Does DNA predetermine our health as much as we are led to believe?

About The Author
Katy Bowman has earned an international reputation for educating the general population on alignment and load-science, and as a result has helped thousands to reduce pain, increase bone density, improve metabolic health and solve their pelvic floor mysteries.
She is known for her radical, counter-culture health directives based on the hard science she has made her lifes work.

A biomechanist by training and a problem solver at heart, Katy has the ability to blend a scientific approach with straight talk about sensible solutions and unwavering sence of humor, earning her legions of followers.   Her blog, KatySays.com reaches hundreds of thousands of people every month, and thousands have taken her live classes.   She regularly writes for and is featured as a health expert in publications such as Premention, IDEA and Self, and is an entertaing guest on radio and television talk shows and news segments.

Katy is the founder and director of the Restorative Exercise Institute, which teaches the biomechanical model of preventative medicine to health professionals and laypeople worldwide, both online and in live seminars.  She is also the creator of the popular Aligned And Well DVD series, a step by step visual guide to learning the basics of body alignment.   Katy's groundbreaking work on pelvic floor floor restoration has made her particularly popular with midwives, therapists, OBGYNs and others concerned with pelvic mobility, strength and health.

Her books, Every Woman's Guide to Foot Pain Relief :  The New Science of Healthy Feet (2011) and Alignment Matters (2013) have been critically acclaimed and translated worldwide.   In between her book writing efforts, Katy travels the globe to teach the Restorative Exercise Institute's courses in person, getting the world moving one calf stretch at a time.
