Healthy New Year Eating

Posted December 31, 2016 at 12:45 pm By Re Salon & Med Spa

Keeping new years resolutions are never easy, especially when they come to food… well at least for me. This year I plan to forge steadily with my plan, not by following some crazy diet or working out like a maniac; by making small changes that will help me stay on track.

 

  1. Healthy gut= happy you. Taking a daily probiotic keeps your belly happy, and bloat away. If you aren’t into taking daily pills you can try kombucha, kefir, or an all natural unprocessed greek yogurt. Make sure the yogurt has LIVE cultures and LOW sugar.
  2. Cut-out unnecessary sugar. I don’t mean every little gram of sugar, just cut back. Soda lover? Try drinking soda water, find a flavor you love and stick with it. If you just have to have sweet coffee, try an agave substitute instead.
  3. Meal prep, what more can I say. It cuts out that “I want fast food” feeling because you already have something ready in case hunger strikes. You don’t have to go out to lunch at work, or get something gross from the cafeteria- all 5 days are ready to go. You might think it will be repetitive by the time Friday gets here. Try marinating your meats in two different marinades for a switch up.
  4. Veggies for breakfast is a super boost. Try adding a veggie to that breakfast- yes everyone loves avocado toast and it’s all “health is good, health is happy” but your body doesn’t need an avocado every day. If you make a salad the night before for dinner, make enough for leftovers to have with breakfast. Delicious!
  5. An apple a day keeps the Dr. away, well at least two apples a day might! Try to eat at least two pieces of fruit a day (no they don’t have to be apples). If you love kiwi, eat kiwi- if you love citrus fruits go for it!
  6. See which fruits and veggies actually benefit you. Did you know corn has absolutely no nutritional value? Yeah, corn may taste good, trust me I LOVE corn- however it really doesn’t do anything for your body. Try to consume foods that help you stay healthy!

See, not that bad right? You aren’t starving yourself, or drinking juices instead of solids, your simply changing a few things about your diet. You will ultimately feel much happier, and your body will thank you!

Lower Calf Exercises to Slim and Tone

Posted December 30, 2016 at 10:43 am By Re Salon & Med Spa

Calf exercisesCalf Raises

Stand with feet together or shoulder width apart.

Slowly raise to the balls of your feet, pulse once.

Lower back down gently! DO NOT let your heels slam back down to the ground.

Repeat for 15 and rest- try to do this 3 times in a row with a rest period of 30 seconds.

<h2>Sitting Calf Raises</h2>

This is a lower intensity workout that regular calf raises.

Sit on a chair that allows you to firmly plant your feet on the ground.

Scoot the edge of the seat but sit up straight

Place a weight or heavy book on top of your thighs.

Repeat the same steps as calf raises.

 

Sumo Squat Heel Lifts

This works both your hamstrings and calf muscles.

Your legs should be spread apart far enough that when you squat your forearm rests comfortably on the top of your thighs or knees.

Lifting one heel at a time- lift to the ball of your foot.

Repeat 15 times and switch sides.

Shoot for 15 reps two times on each leg.

If you’re really going for gold, squat deeper and raise up onto both balls of your feet.

Repeat 20 times and rest.

 

Bounce

Have you ever seen the Nutcracker? They do a lot of bouncing or “hoping” if you will.

Stand with feet shoulder width apart.

Hop forward, don’t try to jump into the other room- give us a literal hop!

Then hop or backward into the spot you started in.

Repeat 25 times and rest.

Dysport and Glabella Lines

Posted December 17, 2016 at 12:00 pm By Re Salon & Med Spa

If you pinch or “furrow” your brow, do you see two faint lines? Maybe you see two deep lines if you’re a little older. The area between your two brows is known as glabella, if these furrow lines bother you- have you ever thought about Dysport?

 

Dysport

Dysport is a prescription injection to reduce the look of lines in the glabella region in patients under the age of 65.

 

The area where Dysport is injected will be the only spot where muscles do not contract, it will not spread to the rest of your face and you will not look “frozen.” Leaving you looking younger, but not expressionless!

 

How Long Will it Last?

Dysport will last for around 3-4 months depending on your body’s metabolism. You should begin to notice a lack of movement within 2-3 days!

Common Side Effects:

  • Headache
  • Injection site pain
  • Injection site skin reaction
  • Irritation of the nose and throat
  • Nausea
  • Swelling of the eyelids
  • Drooping of the eyelids
