What Did We Learn This Month?
Women’s Health: December 2012
Women’s Health Cover Star for December:
Kerry Washington who is the star of TV’s Scandal and will soon be seen in the feature film Django Unchained graces the December cover. Kerry is the first African-American woman to be the featured lead in a TV drama in almost forty years if you can believe that!
The 35 year-old actress is a political activist who campaigned for the Obamas this past year which culminated in her speaking at the Democratic National Convention in September. Kerry is also something of an “eco activist” who keeps a green-friendly home and only uses natural beauty products.
To keep healthy and sane with her crazy, busy schedule, Kerry practices Pilates. To check out her favorite routine—check out the Women's Health link here.
So what else is in the December issue of Women’s Health?
Weee! It is Christmas time and all of the December issues out there are filled with cool gift guides and this magazine is no exception. Women’s Health has several pages of items that are “healthy, luxurious and (mostly) useful.”
If you are interested in getting “toned to the core”—try out this workout from trainer John Romanello.

Every year we get all kinds of warnings about the upcoming flu season and if they scare you as much as me—then this article will be most useful.
