What Did We Learn This Month?
Women’s Health: September 2012
Women’s Health Cover Star for September:
Cobie Smulders is on the cover and I am sad to admit to admit that I have never seen her show How I Met Your Mother. (Do you watch it? Is it as funny as everyone says?) After reading this interview I am convinced she is completely adorable and wish her well with her upcoming nuptials. (Cobie is engaged to comedian Taran Killam who is the father of her three year-old daughter Shaelyn.)
The 30 year-old the actress has tons of good advice to offer young women including learning to travel “on the cheap,” taking career setbacks in stride and date as much as you can before settling down.
My favorite quote from the interview is her pick for the one person she would sleep with if Taran gave her a freebie—Aquaman. (Her reason? "Then we can do it underwater.” Ha!)
Cobie is also on the back cover for Women’s Health Fall Fashion Guide which you can see here:
So what else is in the September issue of Women’s Health?
“10 Weeks to a Half-Marathon”
Do you have marathon fever? Well if you are looking to upgrade your running game, this is the page for you. The program is designed by Kim Maxwell who is a USA Track and Field coach and a personal trainer based in Minneapolis-St. Paul.
“Fresh Flat-Belly Moves”
My favorite core moves are on the stability ball and my students will tell you how much I love teaching the “Stability Ball V-Pass" (when they aren't complaining about doing them!) The moves featured on this page are from Larysa DiDio.
Women’s Health has put together “scientific principles” to help up your workout levels. Good stuff here!
“Burn More Fat in Less Time”
This quickie routine (get your mind out of the gutter, people!) was created by Kira Stokes who is a personal trainer to the stars and a group fitness instructor.
“The Food Porn Problem”
Love this article because I am really getting sick and tired of friends posting fattening meals on Facebook an on Instagram and now Women’s Health lets us know the very practice can be making us fatter. (Though I must admit I find the picture below hypnotizing...)
And now the rest of the best of this issue of Women’s Health:
- Women’s Reproductive Freedoms: This election is very important ladies! Please pay attention on November 6th.
- "Watts Up!" Changing topics here but I loved this beauty features on how to brighten your skin.
- "Stand Up for Your Health” Over a year ago I traded in my chair for a stand-up desk and my body has been thankful ever since. Seriously—“sitting is the new smoking” according to the experts and all those hours on your butt will cause serious health issues later if you do not make changes now. Really!
- "Kitchen of the Future" Women’s Health offers us a look at what kitchens will look like in the future and I, for one, cannot WAIT for it!
A! Tons of great stuff in beauty, fashion, fitness and more here. Well done Women’s Health!!
