It’s no secret that, on Thanksgiving, most of us consume more food than any other day of the year. We’re switching this for that and giving you TWO vegetable sides that’ll offer healthy, delicious alternatives for your Thanksgiving table — and are so easy to prepare, they’ll surely become a new holiday staple!
Join us this month for a community-wide MOVEment to raise money for music education in underserved public schools across the country. Starting Nov 1, we’ll be challenging you to move to music everyday — whether that’s POUNDing, playing air guitar, or dancing with your significant other — to drum up dollars for this awesome cause.
We live in a world where the medicine cabinet is our go-to at the first sign of sickness. What you might not realize is that the cure may already be in your kitchen! Here are four smoothies that will target fall’s infamous “symptoms”. You know them all too well: Stress, Energy, Dehydration and Sickness.
The best part about Thanksgiving is the excuse to invite your whole family (including your Great Aunt Bridget and your grandpa’s cousin Charlie) to gather around the dining room table and give thanks over good food. Whether you share your favorite memories from 2015 or choose families through the Salvation Army to donate Christmas gifts to, next Thursday night is a time to slow down and leave your worries at the door**.
**Side effect of leaving all your worries at the door? Over-eating. It’s no secret that, on Thanksgiving, most of us consume more food than any other day of the year. What we don’t realize is that most of that consumption comes in the form of sides: cranberry sauce, buttery mashed potatoes, mayonnaise filled jello mold, sweet potatoes au rum, the list goes on and on. Cue your Thanksgiving Sides Tweak! We’re switching this for that and giving you TWO vegetable sides that’ll offer healthy, delicious alternatives for your Thanksgiving table — and are so easy to prepare, they’ll surely become a new holiday staple!

FACT: 1.3 million US elementary school students do not receive any musical instruction in school. Public schools are having a funding crisis and music programs are among the first to be eliminated.
Join us this month for a community-wide MOVEment to raise money for music education in underserved public schools across the country. We’ve partnered with Little Kids Rock and Crowdrise to create a fundraising platform and challenge to raise funds to give music education back to our youth. We’ll be challenging you to move to music everyday — whether that’s POUNDing, playing air guitar, or dancing with your significant other — to drum up dollars for this awesome cause.
If music moves you the way it moves us, join us in helping our friends at Little Kids Rock. Our goal is to raise $20,000 in the month of November to provide instruments and instruction for over 800 students across the US. (more…)
June 12, 2009: one year to the day after I graduated nursing school, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. A month before I was diagnosed, I mentioned to my doctor during a casual conversation that my sister had just been diagnosed with breast cancer. When I told him which type she had, he said, “you’re going for a mammogram.” No questions. I was 35 yrs old, not old enough to start getting regularly scheduled mammograms, and terrified.
Two mammograms and one biopsy later, I was diagnosed with Ductal Carcimoma in Situ, aka non-invasive breast cancer. I was given 2 options. Option 1: a lumpectomy where only the tumor is removed, followed by 5 weeks of radiation, followed by 5 years of Tomaxafin, an oral chemo drug. Option 2: a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction with no guarantee that I wouldn’t need chemo and radiation with that option until the surgeon had me in the OR.

So, to accompany your kickass, productive schedule, here’s the easiest and fastest dinner (and lunch!) option that’ll keep you on track in the food department. (more…)
This simple move will really “stick” it to your lower abs and obliques! Start by grabbing both Ripstix in your right hand. Place your left hand on the ground near your hip and sit down low, hovering your feet off the ground, legs squeezed together. Cross your right hand over your lap and give the ground a smack while you lift your legs as high as you can (lift using your core, not hip flexors!). Cross back over your lap and hit the ground on the right side. That’s one rep. Do 15-20 reps on each side, 3 sets.
*Bonus: If you’re feeling extra frisky, try tapping the ground twice instead of once for a little added volume. #MAKENOISE
