When we are stressed we tend not to eat as healthy as we should be eating, our diets start to slack, our exercise goes out the window; when Ironically you should be exercising when you’re stressed. However, not only will Stress cause health-related problems like heart conditions and other sicknesses and diseases; stress will also damage your hair.

Our hair needs nutrients, which we get from the foods we eat. If we aren’t putting the right foods in our body, our hair will suffer. If you lose more than your 100 strands a day, you should consult your Doctor. Your Doctor will probably tell you that you need more B12, Zinc, and Iron in your diet.

You can also try to treat it topically by using thickening shampoos, like FIXX thick-hair shampoo for example. If you want to add even more Volume, you can try one of our Fabulous 100% Remy Clip-On Hair Extensions.

Stress can also cause you to get Grey hairs, ever notice how the President of the United States always leaves office with more grey hairs than when he came in office; stress.

How to Beat Stress

Having Stress is common among most Adults these days. Some of the Causes of Stress are due to Workload, job security, Money and Time.

Studies also show that 85% of the stuff that we worry about actually never happens, and an additional 80% of us say that when the worst does happen, we handle it better than we thought we would. So stop the Stressing, go out and enjoy the Fresh air, talk to a friend, listen to music, have a good laugh. These things are said to help you feel less stressed and people who do these things live longer happier lives.

Breaks are always good

Sometimes we need to slow down a bit and listen to our bodies, and just BREATHE. Hmm..maybe some Yoga influence?

Listening to our bodies when we have falls, injuries or struggles is important for success. Yes Success! True success doesn’t always have to be go, go, go! In fact, the most successful people take the most vacations…

This morning I was about to go for my usual workout, when I noticed my shoe was rubbing against my ankle (bad choice of socks)..it was extremely painful and started to bleed..instead of just going to workout…I listened to my body and decided to just take a rest day. It’s all for a reason and I don’t regret it. Yes, I’m sad that I missed my favorite Zumba class of the week….but there’s always next week. Now, am I not going to be active today? No, just had a minor detour in my daily routine today. It’s okay, change is GOOD, forces me to keep focusing the main picture.

Tomorrow’s a new day! Always keep going and learn from yourself.

 

How often do you take breaks?

Why I’m not upset about the Disneyland price hikes

money

 

If you were on Social Media the past 2 days, most likely you have probably heard about the Disneyland Resort Price Hikes, and most likely there was probably some RANTING going on. In my opinion, that is just immature people who don’t know anything about business. Recently I read a blog from Babes in Disneyland about the Disneyland Price Hikes.

For those of you not aware of the Cost of Disneyland the Increase is as Follows:

 

$96- for a One-day One park ticket (Ages 10+)..up $4

$150- for a One day park Hopper (Ages 10+)..up $13

And, the “So-Cal” Annual pass has been eliminated, however those passholders who currently have it can still renew it.

The Cost of an AP pass went up as well, starting at roughly $350 for the lowest one and up to $699 for no block-out dates and includes price  of parking (Which also went up to $17).

Yes, I agree those prices are EXPENSIVE, and may bring in less people through the gates of Disneyland, but I’m not mad about the Disneyland Price Hikes, Why?

Everyone  that goes to Disneyland complains about how crowded it was or how expensive it was. And guess what? going to Disneyland is a PRIVILEGE NOT A RIGHT!!! No one is entitled to go to Disneyland, if you want to go, get off your Lazy ass and work hard for it! Yes, I know the economy is tough! Trust me I graduated College at the WORST time, but sitting on your butt and complaining about the rise of Disneyland, the Rise of gas prices, the rise of Food etc etc… is NOT going to do anything!! Why not be smarter with your money and find ways to SAVE so you can enjoy the finer things in life, like going to Disneyland? For example, instead of eating out all time, stay home and cook…it’s healthier for you too! Try walking to more places rather than using so much gas to drive to every little place and most importantly find ways to increase your income.

How do you feel about the Disneyland price hikes? Are you still going to go?

How to order at Starbucks without gaining weight…

 

Evanston 025 copy

We all love our coffee, we also love our bodies and with the warmer weather approaching, more of us are more cautious about what we eat. Even though you have switched from that sandwich to a salad, and you taken your Workout to the next level, your weight still isn’t going anywhere. One thing to consider can be your Coffee routine, Your Morning or afternoon Coffee “treat” can be packing on more calories (and pounds) than you may have liked. Good News is, You don’t have to give up your Coffee to maintain your weight loss goals. However, being a little more careful about WHAT you order at Starbucks (or other coffee-chains) can make a difference on your pant-size. Here are a few guidelines to remember next time you are deciding what drink to get.

1. The Less Words in the Drink the Better

The more “simpler” your drink order is the more likely it is to contain less calories. For examples that Grande White Chocolate Mocha Image

has a Whopping 470 Calories and 59 grams of Sugar!! (made with the Standard 2% milk and Whipped Cream). If you take off the Whipped Cream you drop 70 calories and 1 gram of sugar. Still a little too much calories. If you got your White Chocolate Mocha “Frappuccino” Style, there’s a little less calories (430 calories), however there’s not less sugar, there’s 67 grams of sugar in a 16 oz. Grande Beverage! That’s a bit hefty for a “snack”. Even “Iced” the White Chocolate Mocha still has a whopping 450 Calories and 55 grams of Sugar.

If you are in the mood for Chocolate, choose the “Regular” Mocha, this drink (Grande Size) has 330 Calories and 35 Grams of Sugar (Still a bit heavy, but a lot better than that 470 calories).

ImageAnd that “Nonfat” milk still has the 67 grams of sugar, with 420 calories with the white chocolate). It may be “nonfat”, but certainly not a better choice. Nonfat milk is harder for your body to digest and will actually cause that Sugar to turn into fat much faster VS. with “Whole-milk”, the milk has natural probiotics to allow for the better digestion and absorption.

Think “Sugar-Free” is any better? Think again! Sugar Free syrups are made with Splenda, which is a chemical that actually makes you gain MORE weight. So that “Skinny Vanilla Latte” Really isn’t that “Skinny” after all.

2. Always say “Unsweetened”

A few weeks ago Starbucks unveiled their “NEW” Sweet Iced Tea. The Standard Grande Size Sweet Iced Tea has a whopping 80 calories and 21 grams of Sugar, while the “Unsweetened” version has 0 calories/sugar. If you need a little sugar, just add ONE pack of Sugar in the Raw or your own “Stevia” (natural-plant based sweetener). Even the Iced Coffee should be “lightly Sweetened” with “Less pumps” and “less milk”

3. Choose “Iced” verses “Blended”

Image

If you do want that heavy cold-espresso based drink ALWAYS choose “Over ice” VS. “Blended” or in Starbucks terms “Frappuccino”. Most Coffeehouse blended drinks have extra sugar in the “blended/frappuccino” base for consistency. Iced drinks are made with Milk, Espresso, and Sugar. (Opt for no whipped cream as well, and Choose Whole milk instead of 2% or Nonfat). (i.e. Frappuccino drinks have more processed junk, and “iced” drinks have more “whole” ingredients.)

A ‘Flavored” Iced Latte has 190 Calories with 28 Grams of sugar, VS. the Frappuccino Version containing a Whopping 310 Calories and 67 grams of Sugar!! (This is with Whole milk and NO Whipped Cream). So, when that “Frappuccino Happy Hour” rolls around, think twice about going….

Well there you have 3 simple suggestions to order your Coffehouse drink this summer (and year round).

What are some ways you order your drinks during the Slim-down Summer months?
