baby, it's black and white

Even though the rain is here in Northern California (which I am not complaining about). I cant help but day-dream about some swoonworthy styles I'd like to be wearing when the sky dries up.

where to go Wednesday

I have some friends getting married this year (insert girlish squeals here) and they have been racking their brain on where to vacation for their honeymoon. They tossed around a few ideas before settling on Fiji- great choice. They both love to do activities while still making time for relaxation and exploration. Fiji has all of that. Like renting a helicopter and flying over this view. Or going here on a hunt for pearls. Or dining here while watching the sunset. Their trip is sure to be one for the record books.
But check out these other great destinations.

The dirty F- word

hey now kids, get your mind outta the gutter.... not that F- word
I'm talking about Fat.

Did you know that if you increase the amount of fat in your diet, it could actually help you to lose more fat from your body? Trippy I know.. but here's what research is saying. 

Monounsaturated Fats 
What they do: These fats, known as MUFAs, raise good HDL cholesterol, lower bad LDL cholesterol, and protect against the buildup of plaque in your arteries. They also help prevent belly fat, according to research.

Polyunsaturated Fats
What they do: In addition to lowering your LDL, these fats contain essential omega-3 fatty acids -- which boost brain function and may help strengthen your immune system and improve your mood -- and omega-6 fatty acids, which in small amounts can keep skin and eyes healthy. 

Stay away from Saturated Fats and Trans Fats 
(those won't help you in the health department.)

By showing your body that it is getting a consistent source of external fat from your diet, it will be more willing to let go of the fat it is currently holding. 
calories in = calories out... still holds true of course

Fat is energy. Your body does not want to give up this valuable fuel source. We may think that fat is a nuisance, but your body thinks otherwise. It loves fat. Providing 9 calories per gram, fat provides a dense source of energy for your body. The downside? Fat has 9 calories per gram, and is a dense source of energy for your body. Great for your body, but bad for you when you want to get rid of it. By not severely limiting your fat intake, you signal to your body that there is no famine or lack of available energy in the near future, and that it is OK to shed some of the energy reserves it currently holds.

off track

Do you ever need to reevaluate your life. Do you feel as though you've gotten off track. How about giving too much to others and not enough for yourself? I feel like there has been something missing in my life lately. And the worst part is.. I'm not sure what it is? I took an aerial silk class [[see here for info]] last night. I crave that feeling of new adventure. My classmate told me that's a common story.. adrenaline junkie

but when will i be happy with "old", "known" and "for sure"? 
That's not really how I roll
I like spontaneity.
I like the unkown.

 "noboby sees, nobody knows
we are a secret can't be exposed
that's how it is, that's how it goes
far from the others.."

straight up

People at work are always asking me about easy yoga poses they can do at their desk to help alleviate aching backs. Well, the cause of this is sitting at your desk all day, but more importantly how you're sitting at you desk. It all begins with the proper posture. 

Check out Health magazine's great feature. Try to impliment these 5 positions into your daily routine for better health... and less visits to your chiropractor.
(unless he's hot like mine, then you should probably keep up your regular visits)
