With the holiday of love rapidly approaching, wanting to adorn your special someone with a feast worthy of royalty is normal, not to mention the pounds of chocolate and candy you will undoubtadly shower them with...
It's easy to forget on Valentine's Day about that New Year's resolution. But nothing ruins a romantic feast like ordering like a bird. "She can have whatever she wants. Me, on the other hand...I will take the Ceasar Salad, dressing on the side, no cheese, and could you please make sure the chicken is extra lean?" Thankfully, our friends at Men's Health have compiled a handy little list of healthy foods that are romantic, too!
With peanut recalls through the roof, the FDA has uncovered startling new evidence behind the salmonella outbreak.
Recent developments show that the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) knowingly shipped salmonella-laced products as far back as 2007. A peanut plant in Georgia shipped out chopped peanuts that they knew to be contaminated and continued to ship product before results of a second test were produced.
While there seems to be no end in sight for the economic strain and with gas prices on the rise again, belts across the nation are tightening and Sunday morning paper coupon clipping is becoming a family activty. We're trying to save dollars and cents any way we can. And while we're all figuring out what's important budget-wise, gyms have perhaps become one of the "frivilous expenditures" versus "necessities."
Spending close-to or over $100/month to work out is not topping many lists anymore. If you've found this the case in your day-to-day, fear not. Here are 10 at-home exercises to keep every part of you slim, while hopefully adding some weight back to your wallet.
While the country scrambles to find some way out of this economic nosedive, we may also see dramatic changes in dietary habits.
It's hard to stay healthy this day and age. With our increasingly sedentary lifestyle and the common fatigue after a hard day's work, strapping on the workout clothes and heading to the gym seems somewhat a foreboding mission. Leave it to the folks at Nintendo (yes, the video game company) to remedy the situation with their video game-based workout system, the Wii Fit.
The buzz surrounding the Wii Fit was palpable this past holiday season, when consumers found it next to impossible to get ahold of one. Now that a little time has passed, they are readily available online and in electronic stores. So let's see what this "exer-gaming" is all about.
WSi Healthcare Personnel has been in the medical staffing industry for well over 20 years, and with the way things are going currently, there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. We have developed strong relationships with clients throughout the Rocky Mountain region that are in need of skilled, motivated and qualified candidates for various positions. However, we felt that this “various positions” tag was a bit vague. That being said, here is a rundown of said various positions WSi staffs:
It's no lie that the Internet has become the primary form of communication what with email, the endless number of websites full of information, and the vast world of Social Networking. Facebook, MySpace and LinkedIn being some primary sites where people are now connecting for a plethora of reasons - meeting new friends, finding a special someone, reconnecting with old acquaintences, or finding employment.
However, it is not only those looking for work that scan these social networks. Employers are now looking to them when considering new applicants. Keeping this in mind, if you belong to any/all the social networks, know that employers are looking for you. Here are a few Do's and Don'ts when it comes to your personal social network profile:
Yesterday, Denver, CO was named "Most Desirable City To Live In" by a U.S. survey. First, Denver places 4th on the Nation's Fittest Cities list as reported by Men's Fitness (link). Then it ranks among the Coolest Cities list as seen by MSN (link), and now this (link). 2009 is shaping up to be a good one for the Mile High City.
Perhaps, the reason for all this praise is that Denver clocks in over 300 sunny days a year on average, more annual days of sunshine than either San Diego or Miami Beach. So what? So, everything. Not only does the sun make Colorado's forests green and mountains sparkle, it also keeps the citizens healthy.
What do you think of when you hear the term "in vitro"? The first thing would probably be in vitro fertilization and test tube babies. What if we told you scientists at a nonprofit research consortium called New Harvest are using this "in vitro" method to develop new meat substitutes. Their hope is that these new discoveries and advancements would reduce the need for farm animals, slow the spread of avian influenza, and reduce the meat industries already-enormous environmental footprint.
Sick of being shamed for eating what some call "Junk Food"? Yeah, it gets tiresome what with all the taboo about preservatives, trans fat, artificial sweetners, colors, flavors, etc. This list goes on... Well, next time you find yourself enjoying some pork rinds and someone starts hassling you to eat a carrot instead, you have cause to retort and defend yourself.
MSN.com released, yesterday, its list of the 15 Coolest Cities in North America. On that list? Denver, CO! First we're deemed 4th healthiest
in the nation by Men's Fitness and now this? It's a good time to be a Mile High resident.
On January 17th, WSi Healthcare Personnel celebrated the holidays / the ringing in of 2009 / and another successful year at the Augustine Grill in gorgeous downtown Castle Rock, CO.

With the crisp night air whipping the Pines outdoors, WSi and guests were warm inside being treated to speeches from their fearless leaders, as awards for excellence during 2008 were handed out, and jokes and good-natured jests were exchanged.
We've discussed dietary changes and workout routines to help jumpstart the ever-popular "This is the year I get in shape" New Year's resolution. While making those adjustments in your life are beyond important, even the slightest changes can be of ultimate benefit to you!
It's easy to get caught up in a fad diet, especially when it gurantees and sometimes delivers instant results. You've seen the infomercials for pills and miracle products showing before and after pictures of "success stories." Sure, taking a pill and not eating will take some inches off your waistline but at what cost to your health and for how long?
Because of a possible salmonella outbreak, Clif Bar, purveyor of energy and supplement bars has issued a voluntary recall on many of its products. From the Clif site:

We're all feeling the strain of this economic time, so shelling out over $100/month to workout with a bunch of sweaty dudes powerlifting 900 pounds may not sound so appealing.

According to USA.gov, the top New Year's resolution is to lose weight and get fit. For some, it's merely getting back into jogging or going to the gym more. For others, the task is daunting: cutting back on favorite foods, quitting smoking, walk/bike to work, etc.
WSi wants you to know that if, indeed, your 2009 resolution was to get fit, we're here to help. Losing weight, toning up, and feeling healthy can actually be fun. And since January 18th - 24th is Healthy Weight Week, we thought there's no time like the present to get going on this!
