Fitbit Force vs. Jawbone UP24: Which activity tracker should you buy? There’s little doubt that activity trackers will be a hot gift this holiday season, but which one should you give? Recently I’ve spent some time with both the Fitbit Force (see disclosure) and the Jawbone UP24, two of the most popular new bands on the market. You can read my full review of each tracker for a complete overview, but I decided to compare the two side by side to help make your buying decision a little easier. Price The Fitbit Force costs $129.95 while the Jawbone UP24 costs $149.99. Compatibility The Fitbit Force syncs its data via Bluetooth 4.0 with most iOS devices, including the iPhone 4s and later devices, as well as the fifth-generation iPad touch, both iPad mini models, the iPad Air and the third and fourth-generation iPads. I really like the display on the Fitbit Force, which lets you check all of the information being tracked on the band itself. The Jawbone UP24, on the other hand, is iOS-compatible only.

The world’s greatest walker: a Victorian pioneer of ultra-marathons (and coke) By Paul Marshall and Nick Harris 21 March 2010 The exploits of the British runner William Sichel and his competitors in the current 1,000-mile race in Athens are extraordinary, but these “long distance” athletes are not products of the modern age alone. This year marks the centenary of one of his most famous walks. For half a century Weston had been one of the most famous people in America, indeed in the English speaking world, as the first age of international celebrity unfolded. It was Abraham Lincoln who unknowingly set Weston on the road to fame. He completed the journey in 10 days, and subsequently became a prime mover in pedestrianism, a sport that took the Victorian world by storm. He polarised opinion – ‘Hero or humbug?’ That episode caused a furore but it was exercise, healthy food, plenty of rest and lashings of whisky (on his feet, not down his throat) that played a greater part in Weston’s success than any narcotic. At 21, he struck the bet that altered his destiny.

The 10 Best Foods for Flat Abs: What to Eat to Boost Abs Exercise Effectiveness and Control Belly Bloat Almonds These delicious and versatile nuts contain filling protein and fiber, not to mention vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. They're also a good source of magnesium, a mineral your body must have in order to produce energy, build and maintain muscle tissue, and regulate blood sugar. "A stable blood-sugar level helps prevent cravings that can lead to overeating and weight gain," says David Katz, MD, a professor at the Yale University School of Medicine. But what makes almonds most interesting is their ability to block calories. Try for: An ounce a day (about 23 almonds), with approximately 160 calories.

The Yoga of Being a Shopkeeper: Lessons from Running Glow Bio Dear Friends/Heart Warriors, We all play many outer roles in this material world. Many of you know me as a writer, author, nutritionist, health chef, entrepreneur, creator of products (Probiotics+, Glowing Lean System, infrared sauna + others coming!) Our launch party! The idea for Glow Bio was actually born in New Orleans. “I can’t believe they give these wild animals that crap to eat!” Here’s our beloved Assistant Manager/Cleanse Specialist Joanna! Our now partner, who had experienced a big life change personally from Beauty Detox, brought up the idea of opening a shop, where the Glowing Green Smoothie (GGS) and my other recipes could be available publicly, to all. We decided on Los Angeles, and at first we called it Kimberly’s Glow. With some of the Glow girls + Alfredo :) I assumed glass bottles were the best to use, but then I realized it isn’t. Cleanse shipment time! But some of the biggest lessons for me had to do with our team. But yes, many mistakes were made along the way.

DIY Body Wrap {Hello Summer} I Heart Nap Time Thanks for stopping by! To get our newest post make sure to subscribe or like us on facebook or pinterest. Hello Sweeties! Today I’m bringing you a wallet-friendly version of body wraps. Here’s her “secret recipe” for DIY Body Wrapping. Lotion (it’s best if it contains something from the ocean: seaweed, kelp, mud. It’s a simple process! Step 1 – Apply a thick layer of lotion to the area you want to target. Step 2 – Wrap the ENTIRE area with your plastic wrap. Step 3 – Now wrap the area with a long bandage of some kind, anything that will keep your wrap in place. Secure it well and you’re ready to hit the sack! The idea behind this is to help your body release water that’s retained due to weather, food consumption; even Mother Nature’s visits. I’ve only tried it once but I LOVED the result! Come see more su-weet things at Sugar Blossoms! Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe . . . 10 Ways to Praise . . . THANKS TJ for sharing this fun project during our Hello Summer Event!
