Crunch, crunch…avoid the Ranch.

UCLA did a study where college boys were asked to rate their preference of women’s body types. These boys were hungry… for food. Upon completing the task, they were given a sandwich. Then they were given more bodies to rate. It turns out, hungry males prefer fuller looking women; whereas, satiated hunger led these same men to choose more slender women. Moral of the story: NEVER FEED A MAN!!!

Jokes… but I do believe that most women struggle with weight, even really anno looking ones.

Anywho, I do believe that eating healthy and smart is important. I don’t normally like to share when I’m dieting mostly because I don’t think anyone cares. But I have found a great site for healthy eating!

The author has some great recipes. Her website is available here. Also, this is how we should eat ALL of the time, splurging once in a while.


A diamond is coal under pressure – my yoga gal


There’s a wonderful girl in Long Beach who holds Yoga classes every Saturday and Sunday by the beach. Classes are free, but of course donations are included and well earned!

I absolutely adore her energy and teaching style, plus she always has all these really deep inspirational phrases to get you through the poses and life.

Though it may not seem so, Yoga is difficult! Today my back is sore and it feels so good! — That’s probably the point that Yoga like life can sometimes seem so easy to the outside but to the individual doing each pose, going through each motion there’s a bit more going on.

Anyway, I love this picture! Remember if you’re going through something difficult a diamond is coal under pressure; you’re on your way to becoming a diamond.


You have to move it, move it!

I love running, I even have a water bottle which I take with me just about everywhere that announces this very love of mine. However, my love has taken a toll on my knees….whaaaaaamp whaaaaaaaaamp….. I hate swimming I feel like I’m suffocating, but in my quest to be one of those happy, positive, optimists one that makes gin and tonics when given lemons, I am finding new types of interesting exercises.

While perusing Goop.com, Gwenyth Platrow’s blog, I came across the wonderful and talented Tracy Anderson, trainer to the stars. I’ve been doing her workouts even though they’re indoor workouts I enjoy them and recommend that you try them.

I particularly enjoy this arms video but you can find many more of her videos on the interwebs, particularly youtube.
