Anyone interested in getting healthy & trimming some inches, and some tips to lose weight fast?
If you wish to lose weight, you absolutely need to be committed to the cause.
No crisis or situation is important enough to cause you to go back to stuffing yourself with sugar, fast & starches. Be ruled by your brain & give up your love affair with your stomach.
Also, at some point during every day, you will be walking, running or exercising faithfully for at least 45 minutes.

Gosh, that doesn't sound good in any context, does it?
Well, it's not. It's unsightly, can create an awful aroma that wafts from your nails, socks or shoes, and can be painful to boot.
It's important that your foot health is taken very seriously, because those two feet of yours is what you have to walk on every day for the rest of your life.
Also referred to medically as onychomycosis, fungi that affect toenails can also affect the nail beds of your fingers.

A while back, my parents and I did a bit of a wine tour of our scenic, local wineries in Niagara.
I loved the wine I tasted at Stonechurch Vineyards, and we had a bit of a stroll through their gift shop area.
Mom and I found these very interesting little soaps made from wine.
Their soaps are called "Fruit of the Vine Wine Soap" from Stonechurch Vineyards, made of a glycerine base.
They had a wide variety of brilliant and beautiful colors to choose from, so we grabbed a few.

Tonight, I used the very last bit of Pikake Lei Body Wash from Bubble Shack Hawaii in the shower...
...I was very sad as this is one of the most fantastic scents I've ever smelled, especially for a beauty product.

The bottle I've shown you on the left in this post is their 5-in-1 Wash for Hands, Hair, Body and the Face, as well as a Bubble Bath enhanced with Aloe and Shea. It's also organic!
It has a great lather and I especially Read more [...]

The very first thing I like to go over when coaching young softball pitchers is to address how they grip their fastball and explain to them the reasons why the grip I teach works.
The horseshoe, two-seam grip is what is most beneficial when throwing a proper fastball with proper technique.

You want to work in, condition, moisturize and refresh your glove whenever needed.
The simplest, most inexpensive and easy way to do this is by using basic shaving cream. Watch the glove maintenance Read more [...]
