How to get hot...or the time I got a heat wrap

Last Saturday I visited a little place in San Dimas, Infrared Body Wraps.  What a delightful experience!

It goes a little something like this:

  1. Drink a lot of water before you go in, and wear long pants, long sleeves and socks
  2. Hop on to the massage style bed into what looks like a giant sleeping bag
  3. Pop your headphones on and catch up on some TV (Jaime got me started on Scandal)
  4. Feel all warm and cozy for while (you start to sweat a bit toward the end)
  5. Leave a little sweaty but so very relaxed!
I signed up for a set of 10 sessions...can't wait to go again this Saturday.  

While I don't know about all the claims...I'd like to think I left detoxified, burnt 1400 calories, and lost some inches...maybe that comes more with time.  Nine more sessions go though, we'll see.


Cheers all!

Coming up roses in the new year

My year is off to a good start...and hope yours is as well.  I tend to go into a bit of a hibernation during the holidays, they just aren't my thing.  

As of the first though, I crawled out of my little cave and back into the world at large.  I started off my year by watching the Rose Parade - this is something I actually really look forward to year every year.  This year I went the extra step and went to see the float close up after the parade.  It is amazing how much detail goes into them.  If you're in Pasadena to check them out, I highly suggest this...you know, next year.

Also, I took a hike! Only a couple of miles - but I got off the couch and that is something.  

So with out calling it a resolution so much as an aim I'm going to try to say "yes" more.  Yes, to more activities, adventures and experiences.
