Here is some Tabata info from Skinny Ms.


Some say that anything worthwhile takes time and doesn’t come easily. We’re here to prove that old saying wrong. The number 4 is going to be your key to success with this quick fitness calendar and complementary playlist. 4 weeks. 4-minute workouts. 4-minute songs. We’ve created the perfect workout calendar for you.

If you’re not familiar with Tabata routines, you’ve been missing out on the best 4 minutes of your life. Tabata is a variation of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). HIIT routines are high energy workouts that help burn fat in a shorter amount of time by boosting your metabolism, increasing your lean muscle strength, cardiovascular system, and lung capacity. Tabata was discovered by Japanese scientist Dr. Izumi Tabata and his team of researchers at the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo. While comparing two groups, one group worked for five days a week for an hour, at moderate pace and another group worked 4 days a week for 4 minutes and 20 seconds at a high intensity pace. The end result showed that the second group increased both their cardio and muscular system. Thus Tabata was born.

Tabata routines work as follows: 20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest. This equals one 30 second round. Depending on how many rounds you have, your end goal becomes 4 minutes total of 8, 30 second rounds. You can do 8 different exercises, 4, or 2, it’s your call. The more diversity in the workout, the more challenging it is, the more muscle groups you target and the better your results will be. This calendar is here to give you these results. 4 weeks of various Tabata routines with the perfect 4-minute song to go with each workout. The songs are high energy and upbeat. When the song ends, your workout ends. 4 minutes listening to amazing music, 4 minutes working out, and most importantly, forever creating lifelong results for your body. You can’t beat that.

Review exercises ahead of time so you know what to expect from your workout. Some workouts have multiple videos, so make sure you only follow the video assigned for that specific day. Work hard from beginning to end, enjoy your rest days, and remember that good things can come at a fast pace.

Lipstick: a Dose of Color

August 31st, 2014 | Posted by Deborah in Cool Tips - (Comments Off on Lipstick: a Dose of Color)

L’oreal color riche extraordinaire liquid lipstick

An excerpt from imabeautygeek.com by Janine Falcon

Lipstick who? Gloss-like colour keeps distracting me. This time it’s L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire liquid lipstick, and if you don’t already have four or five of them, catch up already. They’re one of the least expensive ways to take five years off your face (that’s a tip for those of us in the 40+ club).LOreal-Colour-Riche-Extraordinaire-liquid-lipstick

If you want to look about five years younger, put on a pink lip gloss. Truth. And that’s not a new trick.

What’s new is what a gloss format can deliver now: light, non-sticky, hydrating, pigmented, demi-sheer shiny finishes in a wider range of fresh, young shades. And all without hurting your budget.

Have you noticed how much prettier lip colour has become in the last few years? Pink, schmink — go bright, I say. That said, half the rewind power of gloss is in the shine, so softer hues will still do the look-younger trick.

Who does not like a great lipstick?  An easy way to give you a pick-me-up and even a whole new look.   I’m looking for fun and flirty colors and finishes,  bold but wearable and all that combined in a little tube.  We’re talking lipsticks here! After you’ve found that perfect lipstick and paid dearly for it, how about protecting it when you head out with an icy cool Cool-it Caddy bag.  What makes it so cool?  Cool lips. No drips.  Tuck a fab little “freeze and go” Cool-it Caddy anywhere to keep your lip lusters cool and fresh.  The cooling mechanism is self contained, so the best part?  No drippy ice pack and no melted lipstick! cool-itcaddy.com
