Workout Wednesday

What a great day it is to have a workout. I am reminded this morning of the importance of working out, not just in the physical but in mind and spirit as well.

THE secret to getting that six-pack abs....shhhh!

Target your lower abs to finally get that 6 pack!! Ok, now that you've read the opening sentence and want to know how, I'm here to tell you to forget about it!! First, you can't really target "lower abs" Lower abs isn't even a muscle. The muscle at play (that's right, the 1 single muscle) when you see a six-pack is the rectus abdominis.

Bloating, Dehydration, and Hang Over, Health Tip of the Day

After yesterdays festivities, all the extra food, beer, wine and late night partying, you're going to feel a little bloated, drained and may be even hung over. 1) Make sure to drink lots of water and rehydrate yourself. 2) Choose light easy to digest foods today, since you probably over did it yesterday. 3) To help with the bloating, drink some GINGER, MINT, or CHAMOMILE TEA. Iced or hot, is up to you, but try to stay away from sweeteners, it will only add to inflammation and bloat.

After all, why not?  Do I want to always wonder about the 'what if's'?  Bam...
