Yes, we have all seen the shows on TV with a designer comes in and remodels a home to get it ready to sell. But, did you know that this was actually an option right here in our valley?

I have partnered with Alejandra Billoni, a local architect and designer, to give our clients more options with their home at an affordable price. Alejandra has the luxury to work independently with private clients. This eliminates much of the overhead expenses of some of these large companies, which allows her to pass those savings to the client.

I know, this all sounds well and dandy, but what has she done lately. I am glad you asked, she is currently working on a remodel of the spa area at a condo complex in Beaver Creek. But don’t worry, she does residential properties too.

The picture is of The Chateau and not Alejandra’s work.

Here’s the best part, whether you are buying or selling, we can customize a package for you to save you money. 

So, for more information on remodels or designs, call Alejandra at 970-376-6615 and Greg at 970-331-1333 for information on buying or selling.

Front, side, reverse, hands or forearms, knees or toes—whichever way you choose to plank, this simple, stationary position is an essential exercise in your weekly fitness routine. When performed correctly, planking strengthens all the muscles that run up and down your spine, which helps you to stand, rotate, bend and lift with ease. And let’s not forget the bonus benefits of strengthening your arms, shoulders, glutes and legs. There’s no better way to multitask than to perform plank exercises.

Planks have endless variations. Subtle changes such as lifting an arm or adding movement can change the degree of difficulty of the exercise, keeping your body challenged and your workouts fun. Ready to fire up your core? These five plank variations focus on lifting the legs and adding rotation to intensify the work.

Plank Set-up

All exercises, except for the last one, should begin in one of the positions described below. Setting the foundation ensures that your alignment is correct and your entire body is connected and engaged so you’ll be ready to tackle these fun and highly effective plank exercises.

High Plank

Position the body face down with hands underneath the shoulders and inner arms close to the body. Tuck the toes and contract the quadriceps and glutes so the knees come slightly off the floor. Engage the abdominals, inhale, and on the exhale press the body up in one unit to high-plank position. You should be in a straight line from head to heels.

Forearm Plank

Position the body face down with the elbows bent underneath the shoulders and the forearms and palms firmly planted into the ground. Tuck the toes and contract the quadriceps and glutes so the knees come slightly off the floor. Engage the abdominals, inhale, and on the exhale press the body up onto the forearms. You should be in a straight line from head to heels.

Forearm Plank With Repeater 3 Taps

-Return back to center and repeat the sequence with the left leg.

-Repeat this repeater 3-tap pattern for eight to 10 reps. Perform two sets.

Side Riser Plank

-Lift the right knee toward the chest and release back down. Lift the left knee toward the chest and release back down. Repeat this pattern in a rhythmic fashion for 10 reps.

-Roll back to high plank and then release to the ground to rest. Repeat on the other side, rolling to the left arm, with the right leg to the front with weight on the bottom of the foot, and the left leg to the back with weight on the outer edge of the foot.

-Performing 10 reps on each side is one set. Perform one to two sets.

The bottom of the feet are direct access points to some organs in the human body, which are also known as meridians in the Chinese Medicine. Nervous system is closely correlated with Meridian system. These meridians represent pathways to each organ of the human body.

The bottom of the feet have 7,000 (basically meridians) different nerve endings that are directly connected to different organs. A lot of electrical circuits in the body are dormant because we always wear shoes. This is the main reason why you should walk outside barefoot whenever you have a chance.

Put-Cut-Up-Onions-in-Your-Socks

To ground yourself with the earth’s negative ion filed and to stimulate the meridians of your feet, you have to walk barefoot as much as you can.

If purify your internal organs and to open up these electrical meridians without any diet related, you have to cut up garlic or onion and place them in your socks while you are sleeping (at the bottom part of the feet).

Garlic and onions kill bacteria and germs when applied to the skin topically. The substance from the onion that makes you cry enters the blood stream, kills any germ and bacteria and purifies the blood. The consumption of the veggies has a lot of beneficial effects to the human body.

Kill Germ and Bacteria and Purify Your Blood with These Simple Steps:

 

Step 1: Cut an Organic Onion into Slices (Red White Onions)

Organic onions do not contain pesticides and chemicals. You only have to slice and apply them to the bottom of the feet while you sleeping.

Step 2: Place the Onions on the Bottom of Your Socks

The healing power of the onion will work through your skins which will kill germs, bacteria and the absorbing toxins while you sleep.

The Amazing Benefits of Putting Onion in Your Socks

  • Purification of the Blood
  • Kills Pathogens, Germs and Bacteria – Garlic and onion have strong anti viral and anti bacterial properties.
  • Purify the Air – It will free your feet of chemicals and toxins and keep them smell better.
