Women’s Health Cover Star for September 2014: 

Am I the only person in the world who has never seen one episode of The Big Bang Theory? I guess so because it is one of the most popular sitcoms on TV right and the stars of the show just got HUGE raises according to Entertainment Weekly so what am I missing out on, people? Should I check it out?

Anyhoo— Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting has been on the show for eight seasons and is now married to pro tennis player Ryan Sweeting. Inside the magazine she talks about boosting your self-confidence, making quick decisions, “instant attitude swaps” and her complete devotion to all things pertaining to Jennifer Anniston.

In spite of super-busy the comedienne tells Women’s Health she is ready to get into the mommy-making business as soon as possible while also starring on the hit show (tough life!)

Kaley also stars in the Fall Fashion Guide in the back of the magazine which you can see here.

What Did We Learn This Month?

 Women’s Health

July/August 2014

Shailene Woodley photographed by Tom  Schirmacher

Shailene Woodley photographed by Tom Schirmacher

Women’s Health July/August Cover Star:

I love Shailene Woodley. Not in that dopey “girl crush” way (an expression I loathe) but in a “wow—there is a genuinely nice human being who is using their fame to highlight important causes” kind of way. Shailene is a gal who likes simple things—food cooked in “their purest version,” using beets to not only eat but also as blush on her cheeks (really!) and living life out of one carry-on suitcase.

Shailene is having one heck of a summer as the star of The Fault in Our Stars which is sending the actress into superstar status around the world. She could walk around with a sense of entitlement and look down on others but instead one of her goals in life is to “be the best version of myself and be so kind and compassionate towards others.”

Honestly I could go and gush about her so more but just get the magazine and read about this fabulous young lady on your own. She is good people!

 

So what else is in the July/August issue of Women’s Health

15-Minute Workout “Run Faster, Get Firmer”

Summer’s here and we are all enjoying the cardio outside thing but many of us neglect weight training which can actually slow us down. Dr. Jordan Metzl (author of The Exercise Cure) provided this workout that uses bodyweight only (no equipment!) and can be done anywhere to supplement your cardio workouts.

15 Minute workout 001

 4 Moves: Insanely Toned Abs”  

Here we have a crunch-free workout from trainer Katie Mack (Peak Performance NYC) that you can perform three sets of on three non-consecutive days per week to get your core lean and strong.

4 no crunch ab moves 001

 “8 Ugly-Cute Sandals”

This is one trend I just can’t get behind. Not that I hate comfy sandals but I like “cute” things in my glossies.

8 Ugly Cute Sandals 001

 

Now for the pages that give the “I Wants!”

Women’s Health has collected several shopping pages in this issue that are making say “I want that!” for example:

“Get Outside”

There are tips for taking average of “free equipment” in your local park plus gear to keep you safe from the elements.

Hiking Gear 001

I love me some yoga gear… (And the Oakley Energy Tank is tres adorable!)

Yoga Gear 001

Run Gear 001

The rest of the best of this issue of Women’s Health:

  • “Power Up Your Beauty Routine” Women’s Health collected the latest beauty products that will help with sun damage, tired eyes plus a souped-up dry shampoo I wish I had with me at Fitbloggin’ this year.
  • “Guide to Sex Toys” Pretty thorough I have to say…
  • “High Anxiety” Science shows that women are more prone to anxiety and acute fears than men.  (Um, is that a ladder you would like me to climb? No thank you.) If you have phobias that hold you back from enjoying life—check out this article.

Women’s Health Cover Star for June 2014: 

OMG—it’s Miranda Lambert on the cover and I could NOT be more excited. Not only is she a kickass artist (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a favorite tune of mine) but she also is a domestic abuse victim’s advocate (growing up her parents would take in women & children who were from abusive environment to help them get their on their feet) AND a friend of the animals who loves to take in stray dogs.

In approach of her upcoming 30th birthday Miranda decided to trade unhealthy eating habits for a balanced diet and workout schedule and has lost somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 pounds (she is not a huge fan of scale-watching.) Though offered mega bucks by huge weight loss brands to lose 40 pounds she decided to forgo the skinny-chick hype and keep it real. (She is stunning by the way!)
