I heard recently that you want to consume solid foods or energy bars starting out and then consume the gels later on. The thinking is that the solid foods take longer to digest than the gels over a sustained amount of time. Whereas the gels are absorbed and put to use by the body rather quickly. I do this on long bike rides. I eat bars starting out for the first few hours then I take a gel at about 15 miles left to go to get me home.
What do you guys use for sunscreen on long rides? I've been using the facestick from Mission Athletecare that's worked out well for me, but I can't seem to find it at CVS anymore. This stuff is more like a wax that doesn't run into my eyes.
Today was just too beautiful not to be on a bike. I got in 58 glorious miles. I might have been able to fit in more but I was already running a bit behind after stopping on two separate occasions to speak with first a co-worker then a hottie from my bootcamp class. About 4 hours after I got home my tube burst. That thing was loud too! Just sitting there watching TV when it blew about 10 ft. from me. I don't know what caused it to blow still.
Not dripping wet but just moist enough that the crystal glides over my skin. I step out of the shower and without having dried my arm pits I wait a few minutes while I either brush my teeth or shave before applying the crystal. Sent from my HTC Glacier using Tapatalk
It works 10x better if your pits are shaved. I apply it the same way you do right out of the shower.
+1 on the quinoa. In the same vein - lentils. You can get some low sodium lentil soups that are delish!
I've been using an Oral-B (circular sweep) brush for years now. I just changed to a Professional Care 1000 from the Vitality (base) model. What the OP will like about these brushes is that they have a sensor that lets you know if you're putting too much pressure on your teeth (Professional series and up). The brush does the work for you, so you don't end up scraping away the enamel. One thing I noticed in changing models is the higher strength of the motor on the...
Where did you get this lamp if you don't mind me asking? I have a similar one (also touch sensitive), but it has an cobalt blue shade. This is more to my liking.
I happened upon this AHA cleanser at Vitamin Shoppe a few months ago called BWC (Beauty Without Cruelty) AHA Complex. I've been more than impressed it especially considering its less than $12. The name is a little ghey, but I like the no-nonsense packaging.
I had a discussion with a coworker recently about this. He'd come to conclusion that the primary reason for cold and flue season occurring in the colder months had less to do with the weather and more due to the fact that there is less sunlight in the shorter days causing less vitamin D production in our bodies. I can't recall his source for this discussion but it makes sense.
