WOW WOMAN @wowwomanofficial Feature.
SURGEON, PHYSICIAN, AMMAN, JORDAN
Dr. Vera Bakumenko is one of the most resilient women I know. Born in the Soviet Union, Vera finished medical school in Ukraine, married a Jordanian and upon graduating left for Amman. There she overcame culture shock and started building a family and a medical career. As only Vera can, she rose to the challenge, and found work in a small town hospital. She used her brilliant mind and a sharp wit to learn Arabic while on the job (listening to patients, addressing complaints, translating between English, Russian then Arabic) while pushing forward toward obtaining specialization as an ENT surgeon.
I recognize, celebrate and applaud Ukrainian women who rise up and make headway, despite getting knocked down continuously. I believe that survivors like Ms. Bakumenko possess a healthy mix of realism, sharp wit and that Eastern European sense humour. Please enjoy the WOW Woman interview in both Russian and English. . . . . .

Hollow Body holds are one of the best core exercises you can do. Though they are a difficult movement and I often see them done wrong.
Focus on getting the foundation correct before moving onto the next steps. - Press lower back into the floor. (Imagine using the belly button to squash something under your back.) - Use you hands to feel if your core muscles are on.
This is important for understanding when your muscles are working during other exercises. Try to maintain activation through your breaths. - Lift head and shoulders. Again focus on core activation through breathing. - Lift legs to table top position. - IF you can maintain core, extend legs out and arms overhead. This is a hollow body hold, remember it’s an advanced movement so master the foundation first. - Notice of you are sticking you belly out as you want to avoid this. If you are activating the deep core muscles correctly the belly button will lower when looking at it. (This is different to sucking your belly in)

Ada Lovelace (1815-1852)⠀
💪 Elle l'a fait : créer le premier programme informatique au 1843, avant la naissance des ordinateurs !⠀
🧭 Elle l'a vécu :⠀
￼Le début, comme la fin de la vie d'Ada, sont chaotiques. Son père Lord Byron, poète débauché, ruiné, drogué et violent, sombre dans la folie. Sa mère, Annabella, qu'il a épousée 1 an avant et qu'il a violée à de nombreuses reprises, s'enfuit quand Ada a 1 mois. Le premier prénom d'Ada est Augusta, le prénom de la soeur de Byron, avec qui il a eu une relation incestueuse. Tout un programme. Evidemment ce prénom passe vite à la trappe.⠀
Ada subit une éducation "à la dure" (voire sadique) et trouve son échappatoire dans les livres. Ca l'aide aussi à passer les années de maladie.⠀
A 18 ans, elle rencontre les mathématicien.ne.s Somerville, Babbage & Morgan, qui joueront un grand rôle dans son apprentissage.⠀
A 25 ans, Ada est mariée et mère de 3 enfants, et elle s'ennuie, elle n'aime pas ses enfants qui lui prennent tout son temps. Elle qui rêvait de liberté, se retrouve dans une nouvelle prison. Elle les confie à un précepteur, et retourne aux mathématiques. ⠀
En 1841, elle propose ses services à Babbage, qui construit un moteur analytique. Elle traduit une description de son engin, quand Babbage lui propose d'écrire un article original puisqu'elle connaît bien le sujet. Elle s'empresse de le faire et rédige la Note G, le premier programme informatique au monde. L'article rencontre un certain succès, mais pas suffisamment pour subventionner le projet de la machine, ni transformer sa vie.⠀
Alors Ada cherche une nouvelle échappatoire, et la trouve dans les jeux d'argent. Les paris, c'est mathématique ! Elle perd. Beaucoup. Et finit ruinée, et malade. Elle meurt à 36 ans, droguée à l'opium (ce bon vieux médicament) et au bout d'un an d'atroces souffrances, d'un cancer de l'utérus.⠀
Ses travaux et la machine de Babbage ont été redécouverts en 1937 et ont donné naissance aux ordinateurs.⠀
📣 Elle l'a dit : "Mon cerveau est plus que simplement mortel; le temps le prouvera."⠀

She’s the Wind Beneath my Wings. Babsi commandeered me at the @sdsuwritersconf in 2001. Drops of Jupiter was my favorite song. I was pitching a historical novel called Born in Blood about my ancestors journey from Catalunya to California and love with a native woman. Babsi was writing her own novel. How do I put this? 🧐💗 we each recognized a sister. She has always supported me. She lifts me up when I’m down. She sees me in ways I want to see myself. Always. 💃🏻🔮🙏🏽💫🤗She worked for Warner Brothers when Harry Potter was hot and brought me backstage gave me free wands. She’s been through the Weinstein debacle and survived breast cancer twice. #ShePersisted

This is our munchkin. She means the world to us. We planned for a June baby, and my due date was June 26th. But she just did not want out. So much so that even after using forceps, we had to have an emerg c section.
It was hard. I didn’t know what was going on. I said yes to all the drugs. (FYI, this does not make me less of a mom than you judgemental moms out there. Keep it to yourself) I went through back labour and that was the most intense pain I’ve ever had. I cried. (Another FYI, they gave me laughing gas and 100% I was not laughing) My boyfriend didn’t even know how to comfort me. I just screamed in his face the entire time. Thank goodness I brushed my teeth before heading to the hospital.
To all the moms that did this without meds, I applaud you. To all the moms that did that with meds? I applaud you. To all the moms that gave birth vaginally? I applaud you. To all the moms that have gone through cesarean sections, I applaud you too. It doesn’t matter how you did it. I hate the term “natural birth”. It’s so demeaning. It doesn’t make my birth any lesser than yours. What matters is the little magical bean that has been placed in your loving arms.
So, to ALLLL the mommas. I applaud you. You’re a hero and a warrior.
PS. LO’s forcep mark healed up beautifully. Swipe to see four months later!

Earlier this year, our founder/president @lisamburwell embarked on a new venture to name and create @sherobar, a brand-new nutrition bar designed to unleash the superhero in all women! Lisa Burwell envisioned the ethos of the brand, meant to embody the heroic side of the everyday woman, a.k.a. the SHERO. Art director @traceyleighthomas made magic designing the brand, with bright colors and a bold typeface. The packaging and logo capture feminine yet strong vibes that are meant to evoke the feel of Wonder Woman and other iconic female heroes. Plans include expanding into a lifestyle community that empowers women everywhere. We can't wait to unveil more about this all-new brand and product, so Stay Strong and stay tuned!

If you let yourself get sucked up into the holiday vibe too soon you can kiss 💋 the successful start of 2020 goodbye. 👋🏻
Make no mistake the momentum you carry into 2020 by closing 2019 strong 💪 will undeniably dictate your success for the year.
👠 All the push back you get in your attempts to close out 2019 will be 𝐏𝐄𝐑𝐅𝐄𝐂𝐓 follow up business to kickstart January with a punch 🥊
👠 Most of the pushback you’re getting now is just 𝐡𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐚𝐥 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐧𝐞𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐥𝐲 𝐚𝐜𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞.
It’s just easy to blame something when people want to avoid a boring meeting - 𝘸𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘩 𝘪𝘴 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘵 𝘱𝘦𝘰𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘬 𝘪𝘴 𝘨𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘰 𝘩𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘦𝘯 𝘣𝘺 𝘴𝘢𝘺𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘺𝘦𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶 - so they figure if they tell you the “holidays 🎄” are taking up their time they figure you’ll buy that excuse and just walk away.
Uhh, no Bob 😆
Just ask them even though the holidays are here, let’s just get together anyway!
You’d be surprised at how many people will then actually 𝐓𝐇𝐈𝐍𝐊 about their schedule for a moment and concede to give you a few minutes.
🌟🌟Remember this is a win win.
Either you push through and get the appointment or you set yourself up with Followup momentum for next year.
In either case - it’s the time to pour on the gas ⛽️ and really build momentum.
🔥🔥𝐂𝐋𝐈𝐂𝐊 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐋𝐈𝐍𝐊 𝐈𝐍 𝐁𝐈𝐎 𝐓𝐎 𝐑𝐄𝐆𝐈𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐑 𝐅𝐎𝐑 𝐀 𝐋𝐈𝐕𝐄 𝐓𝐑𝐀𝐈𝐍𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐍𝐄𝐗𝐓 𝐌𝐎𝐍𝐓𝐇🔥🔥

Today's agenda: THIS. Swipe L.
By 2pm G had entered a hoola hoop, limbo, & dance competition.
She WON the dance comp for her whip & nae nae, as one does. Y'all know her, & if you've followed me for 7 seconds you know she never stops dancing, EVER.
It's 80°, the pool is heated to bath water temps, no place to be, grief/agendas/school on hold, & living our best use of time.
She told me a few minutes ago in a soaking wet embrace, this girl's trip was just what she needed, & loves making memories together. She thanked me for bringing her & being her bff, & J for working so hard. God bless it.
It's so special to have grateful kids, who are your friends when they're not acting like aliens w/smart mouthy words.
There a few IG stories up from earlier today. Will load pics when we get home this weekend, because I know my parents & like 6 of you are anticipating such.
A few more hrs or so here, then off to the FL Mall for shopping, then dinner at Citywalk, again.
Also note, I need to do Whole 30, & a juice cleanse after this trip, & the Bama trip last week. So gross.

Please spare a thought for the women and teenage girls experiencing homelessness, sleeping rough, or seeking refuge in domestic violence shelters this holiday season.
In an effort to ensure that these women and girls do not go without, @sharethedignityaustralia are today launching their 2019 It’s in the Bag Christmas Appeal!
I'm a volunteer, or ' #Shero' as we are called, for Share the Dignity and we want to give local women and girls doing it tough over the holiday period a reason to smile and feel cared for. As well as restoring some of their dignity by providing them with handbags filled with essential hygiene products + a few extra little treats.
3.2 million Australians are currently living the below poverty line with many women and young girls experiencing period poverty on a monthly basis unable to afford sanitary items.
The It’s in the Bag campaign has a simple premise: 👜 Donate a handbag in good, used condition that you no longer use; 👜Fill it with items that will make a difference to the daily life of a homeless woman; 👜Be sure to include the essentials such as pads and tampons, roll on deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner and soap; and 👜Add some little luxuries like lip balm or hand cream, anything that would make a woman or teenage girl feel special. 👜Individuals who donate bags are encouraged to pop a thoughtful note into the bag, to show these women and girls that someone cares and that they matter.
The campaign will run from November 22, through until December 7 and bags can be dropped off at your local Bunnings store where they will be collected by Share the Dignity volunteers like me! We will ensure these lovingly prepared bags are distributed to charities and available for women and girls in time for Christmas🎄♥️
