How To Turn a Bad Day Around – We all have bad days. But you have a choice to keep it that way or make it better.
Vaccines: Peer Pressure, Propaganda, or Prudence – I’m not a mother, but I made a decision a while back, that unless overwhelming, evidence-based health information proves that vaccines are not safe for my child, I will vaccinate. I work in a hospital and there is no telling what germs I bring home everyday. After reading the stories that were linked in this article, it is easy to see how an non-vaccinated person can affect a child too young for vaccines. The numbers of non-vaccinated children are rising, and so are the number of cases of measles and pertussis (whooping cough) both of which are preventable and treatable diseases, but can be life-threatening in the young, old, and immuno-compromised.
Single? Then You Know the Pity Face – I’m starting to get more and more of these, mostly from people I don’t know very well and moms of former high school classmates that I run into when I’m in my cruddy yoga pants and buying 2 pounds of butter and a 12 pack of diet coke on a Tuesday night. I also get the “oh, well I’m sure Prince Charming is just around the corner!” a lot. What are you supposed to say? “He got lost or hit by a bus”? Mostly, I just smile an awkward smile and try to change the subject.
I thought this would make a really interesting (and fairly easy!) work out plan. No idea what I would do for cardio…this is when I really wish I had an elliptical.
…and hunger-inducing recipes
