Gym Personas – Which One Are You?

You’re at the gym and struggling to make it through your workout. Make the minutes go by faster by doing a little people watching. Keep an eye out for the “Gym Mom.” She’s dropped the kids at the club, totes a massive gym bag (hers and the tykes’ stuff, too) and has her favorite spot already secured in class. “Jack the Ripped” is bench-pressing loudly while “Mr. Personal Trainer” and his muscle shirt are getting plenty of use out of each machine on the floor. Don’t be surprised if he offers you a few tips.

Be impressed with the guy with the ear buds, multi-tasking while on the treadmill, getting business taken care of. Be aware of the gal with the phone in hand snapping her fifth selfie of herself hard at work — you don’t want to end up in the background dripping sweat in contrast to her perfectly coordinated makeup and ‘do. And, of course, there’s always that individual so clearly comfortable in her skin, baring her midriff and rocking the perfectly coordinated outfit.

For more information on how to identify the gym goers you can expect to see – or to figure out which of these categories you fall into – check out the descriptions on the following infographic.

Is My Drinking Water Safe?

Is-my-tap-water-safe

One of my goals for 2015 was to cut back on soda. Now, I had never really been much of a soda drinker for most of my life. I usually found it a little too sweet and a little too carbonated. I really only liked fruit flavored sodas – like orange or pineapple – and those are a little difficult to find. Then Mountain Dew Baja Blast was introduced. That is my crack. It became all too easy to swing by and pick one up. Ev.er.y.Day.

Sooo…for 2015 I decided to cut back on soda. This means I’m drinking more water and more tea, which is made with water. I need to make sure that my drinking water is safe, though.

OPEN UP your Sinus Pain and Pressure

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sudafed. When you don’t feel good, it’s one of the absolute worst things in the world.  One of the worst kinds of pains is sinus pain.  I happen to be one of those that suffer from intense sinus-related migraines, and these headaches can become incapacitating.  One of the things that can help me relieve this pain is Sudafed.

Pin It!

One of the onsets of these headaches, for me at least, is changes in the weather.  Changes in the atmospheric pressure make my head want to implode.  And these headaches make me want to find a spoon and scoop out my eye.  Yes, that would relieve the pressure and make everything better!  Once the pressure starts to subside, though, it’s like sweet, sweet relief.  I would be willing to swear that I even hear angels singing.
