  1. BreannaBreanna - I love yoga. I love that, to be done most effectively, you must slow down. With yoga, you will learn patience. Although, you should try a few more classes. It's really easy to injure yourself or learn bad habits on your own.
  2. Kim Innes combines her love of yoga with her passion for science. As an assistant professor at the Center for the Study of Complementary and Alternative Therapies at the University of Virginia Health Systems, Innes studies how yoga affects chronic disease. "It was my personal experience with yoga and the benefits I felt, like reduced stress and better sleep, that sparked my interest in studying yoga as a disease intervention," she says. Innes knew that in India, yoga was a common prescription f
  3. I'm not having a good skin week. 2 white heads and a nodule. I wonder if my skin is really improving on the regimen or not. I'm giving it until the end of April and then I will reevaluate. I've been making it a point to let myself feel things. I usually shut my emotions down as quickly as possible. That doesn't eliminate the feeling. That's more like shoving something to the back of the refrigerator and forgetting about it for months. Eventually it's going to make its self known, and it is n
  4. It's amazing to me how even TOTAL STRANGERS seem to think it's ok to comment on someone's weight, if the person they're talking about is skinny. But most people would never dare saying something to a fat person about being fat. Like its any less hurtful to say "Do you have any eating disorder? Are you on drugs? What's wrong with you?". I don't get that as much in LA as I have in other places, but I do still hear snide remarks more often than I'd like to admit. But I remind myself that anyone tha
  5. February 8th! Good grief, I got lazy. So I'm up to a whopping 92.2lb! I cut waaaaay back on the fruit and honey which my skin seems to appreciate. I'm hoping with the help of a skin friendly diet, I'll be able to back off the bp to just once a day. I've started using jojoba oil prior to washing my face in the morning. That might be helping with the dryness and flakes, might not. Too soon to tell. Yoga has been great for making me more aware of my body, but I'm just as high strung as ever. And
  6. I have this great shirt that says "GET your hair OFF DRUGStore products". My vote? Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo. 1. Is your hair tinted, highlighted, bleached? All of the above? Are you using permanent, demi-permanent, semi-permanent, temporary, henna? 2. Do you thermal style your hair? How often? 3. Do you have your color done in a salon or do you use box color at home? 4. What products are you using now? 5. Do you have hard water? 6. Aside from color, do you have any other chemical servic
  7. Living Proof Restore is meant for hair that has been mechanically or chemically damaged. That's not you. I recommend Kerastase Nutritive Bain Satin 1 shampoo and Kerastase Nutritive Lait Vital conditioner. Or the Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger line (it's also geared towards dry, damaged hair BUT I've used it on lots of different hair types, and always with good results). If you don't know if you have hard water, I would recommend getting a filter for your shower, just in case. Also, don't
  8. Thermal styling your hair with any product is like spending all day on the beach without sunscreen. You're asking for trouble. And your probably don't need to wash your hair every single day. Get a dry shampoo and lay off the heat.
  9. Hot scissors = bullshit gimmick What products are you using now? Do you color your hair? How much do you normal have cut off and how often? Do you have hard water?
  10. I haven't really found acne to be an issue when job hunting (or getting new clients). With or without acne, you can dress well, wear makeup and have you hair done. Acne doesn't mean you can't look polished. And it also doesn't reflect your work. My potential clients look to my existing clients to determine whether or not they want to hire me. And clients (as well as employers) can smell insecurity a mile away. So it's important to have real confidence in your work. Even if you have no actual tal
  11. BUMP! So I'm averaging 2400 calories a day. I should be gaining at least a pound a week. I'm not. I'm eating zero dairy, gluten or soy. So I'm eating fruit, vegetables, nuts, beans, pasture-raised beef and poultry, gluten-free oats, quinoa, raw organic honey, extra virgin olive oil, fruit juices, loose leaf teas, and almond milk. (I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I think that covers the bulk of my diet.) What am I missing? What am I doing wrong? I read that "excessive" fructose is go
  12. Agreed! Just 1/4 cup of almonds has over 200 calories. But even though natural peanut butter is sooooo much better than processed, some people have issues with peanuts making acne worse. Avocados are great too. You also have to consider WHERE your food is coming from. Like what chickens eat can make a HUGE difference in the nutritional value of the eggs they produce. Grass-fed beef is much better than grain fed beef. Try to eat fruits and veggies that are locally grown and in season. You might
  13. First of all, teach me your ways on how you kick ass in job interviews XD Second of all, you right. Skin cancer is the worst skin problem you could ever have, and i know i would rather have acne. Third, thanks for commenting Quick interview tips: 1. Know your audience. Learn everything about the company/potential employer that you can. Have questions ready. Know what questions you will be asked. 2. Dress the part. That one depends on where you are being interviewed. If it's an office job, show
  14. Ok, here we go. In my own personal experience and ONLY my own I have found... 1: Proactive is an effective product against acne - Unknown. Never tried it. I don't trust products with commercials. 2: Masturbation can effect acne - false 3: Acne goes away right after puberty - false 4: Acne can causes anxiety - true and false. Oddly enough, if everything else in my life is going smoothly, acne will cause me a great deal of anxiety. If my life is falling apart, I don't think too much ab
