Thanks! I'm trying to minimize rather than maximize my butt. How often are you doing all these exercises?

And what's the second half of your workout?

Health & Support smoking relapse Feb 03 2008

i also quit smoking in september and i'll just tell you what i imagine you already know.  throw away whatever cigarettes you currently have right now! if you buy another pack, you know exactly where it's going to lead. you've been there before and you clearly didn't like it as you quit already. you can go right back to being a non-smoker! plus smoking does not relieve stress at all and haven't you felt better since quitting?

just tell one your friends that you helped quit and they'll force you to stick with it. 

Fitness HI everyone, does anyone do power yoga? Feb 01 2008
04:13 (UTC)
I've been in Boston for a little while and I've been going to the Baptiste yoga studio here.  The room is heated and so you end up sweating enormous amounts. But I feel like I can't tell if I'm actually working or if I'm just hot. do you feel like you get a real workout when you do it in a normal temperature?

also, do you check out other girl's butts? i find myself doing it all the time, but i think it's because i'm self-conscious about my own!

thanks tanyec! i really have one heck of a bubble butt. and it seems that any exercise i do only seems to make it more so. people are always commenting on it (like even strangers on the street!). even though though i guess it's supposed to be a compliment, it makes me totally mortified and want to wear a garbage bag instead of clothes.

I definitely think a beautiful face is way more important than a having a perfect body. but why do you say your face was ugly?

Foods Juicer? Nov 11 2007

I have an omega juicer. it's a little pricey, but it's extremely easy to clean. All of the parts unscrew and you can buy filters to make it even easier. I'd recommend it highly!
Health & Support How dangerous is occasional smoking? Oct 27 2007
22:00 (UTC)
Yeah, it's bad for you to smoke even occasionally. I've read stories of people getting lung cancer who only smoked a couple a week. But also every heavy smoker started out as an occasional smoker.  You should quit now before you get hooked - if you keep it up, it'll only get harder to stop.
Fitness Rope jumping to compensate? Oct 19 2007
22:00 (UTC)
Jumping rope is about as good and convenient a work-out as I know of, but I'm not sure if it should be the only exercise you do. An hour is a really long time to jump for - I don't even think pro boxers do it that long! Maybe you could buy some weights and do half an hour jumping half an hour strength training?
Health & Support Vitamins Oct 19 2007

While there's no substitute for vegetables, they make organic food-based vitamins. You absorb a lot more of the vitamins than in other kinds of supplements. I take one by New Chapter that I like very much.
