What Did We Learn This Month?
Women’s Health: April 2013
Women’s Health Cover Star for April 2013:
Katharine McPhee of my used-to-be favorite show Smash is on the cover of the April issue as well as the cover of the flips side special “beauty issue.” The interview with Katharine is pretty sparse but the expanded beauty pages are fantastic! If you like articles about lotions and potions (and by golly I sure do) it is worth it just for that.
So what else is in the April issue of Women’s Health?
“Women’s Health Shoe Guide”
Women’s Health offers a handy takeaway pamphlet inside filled with the editor’s favorite sneakers. (Must exhibit strength and NOT buy more sneakers…)
It looks like the weather is finally getting warmer in my neck of the woods (thank GAWD!) so these moves to get my arms ready for tank tops will be helpful. Personal trainer Natalie Rado created them (New York City shout out!)
“Fire Up Your Greens”
The cure for “salad fatigue” is in these yummy recipe ideas. Below you will see a chard breakfast skillet with egg, onion and tomato—yum!
“The Body You Want in the Time You Have”
Yes, we are ALL busy but Women’s Health has some ideas on how to get the most out of your puny workout time. So no more excuses, people!
“Jeans & High Tops”
I might be showing my age here but some of these looks made me go “huh?”
“Yoga, You Way”
If you want to try yoga and are not sure which style will fit your personality—try this article and get some Zen going.
And now the rest of the best of this issue of Women’s Health:
- “Detox Your Life” Women’s Health offers ideas to get the toxins out of your life.
- “App Hazard” Be careful of all of those apps for smart phones that promise health benefits—some of them can be dangerous. Watch your downloading, people!
- “Thigh Candy” I am more of a salty than sweet gal but if you need a sugary fix—ideas on lower calorie sweets.
- “I Survived a Brutal Knife Attack” Holy sh*t! This essay is the true, personal tale of survival by Melissa Meline. Plus, we get advice from self-defense expert Kathy Olevsky on how to fight back effectively.
A-! Great workouts, good information and lovely beauty pages—thank you Women’s Health!
