Ordinary is Tempting Until You Win a Dance Contest


I’m the weird family member who doesn’t eat meat and watches her sugar. In my presence they all make excuses for their food choices.

I don’t want to be the food police.

In fact, there are times that I wish I was an ordinary eat-like-the-rest-of-the-world-individual. Quiet as it’s kept, I know that Buffalo wings are tasty and that cheesecake could wash away every care (at least for about 15 minutes, lol).

To be honest, on occasion I contemplate throwing this whole clean eating agenda out the window.

That’s until I won the dance contest. Continue reading

Sweat Makes You a Better You

© Copyright 2010 CorbisCorporation

You may not be aware of this little fact, but we’re born with quite a few sweat glands–2 to 4 million sweat glands to be exact.

Now depending on how many sweat glands you’re born with will determine how much you sweat. Women tend to have more sweat glands then men; but men tend to be more active then women resulting in more sweat produced.

Some think of sweat as a huge inconvenience; sweating during exercise is one thing, but sweating when you’re anxious, embarrassed, angry, or scared is another thing all together.

Some people despise sweat so much they are willing to to be injected under their arms with botox. Ouch!

Okay, okay it’s true–sweat is not very popular, yet it is important and quite beneficial. So are you ready? Then, Let’s get ready to…….Sweat!!!

Sweat Cools Your Body:
  • Your body needs to sweat to avoid overheating. If your body overheats then you could be in danger of heat exhaustion and heatstroke.
