My not so good experience in a chiropractor’s office

June 13, 2014

I had never thought much about visiting a chiropractor. It’s something that had never crossed my mind until several weeks ago. I was enjoying an outdoor festival and was approached about a chiropractic screening with the promise of a free hydro massage so reluctantly I gave my information. A few days later I received a […]

Why Women should lift weights

April 25, 2014

Why Women should lift weights Hey guys, as I seek motivation to “Turn Up’ the weights I came across this article that has added to my inspiration. I’m a reader by nature and need to find a reason to do everything, although I’m self motivated, cardio has always been my “go to”, because it’s so […]

Mission Accomplished

April 18, 2014

March, 30, 2014 marked the end of my 28 day journey on the Fast Metabolism Diet. I lost a total of 7 pounds and while that might not seem significant to most it made a tremendous difference in the way I feel and the way my clothes fit. The more you weigh the more you […]

THE LAST DIET

February 28, 2014

I’ve jumped on many diet bandwagons, fell off, got back on and kept riding. I have been a human guinea pig for so many fad diets that I realize that I never focused on the process only the end results therefore I missed the education and pleasure of the journey. The very first diet I […]

What’s your workout style?

February 21, 2014

I don’t know about you but my “go to” is cardio. I literally have to make myself hit the weights even though I know how important resistance training is. There is always a sense of dread for me with weight training. I guess it requires more thought and effort. Begrudgingly I make the effort because […]

True Confessions….

My name is Venus Styles and I am a grocery store addict. I don’t recall when it all started, but if I had to guess I would say about 3 years ago. Yes, that sounds about right. It happened when I fell in love with Doctor Oz , Dr. Ian Smith, Dr. Andrew Weil and […]
