How to Get in Shape 7 Minutes at a Time October 06 2014

It is difficult to budget time to a long workout or a trip to the gym each day. For people that are looking for a quick workout that they can do at home, High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) can be a great option. HIIT is a popular form of exercise which pushes the body to maximum effort to achieve muscle fatigue and maximum oxygen use in a quick burst. Many popular HIIT workouts are designed to be completed in only 7 minutes. The great thing about these workouts is that users can choose to complete as many rounds as they want and no equipment is necessary. These workouts can be completed at any time, anywhere. This allows users to fit in a workout to even the busiest of schedules. One of the more popular workouts goes as follows:

The routine involves the following twelve exercises performed for 30 seconds each with 10-second rest/transition periods before the next move:

  1. Jumping jacks
  2. Wall sit
  3. Push-up
  4. Abdominal crunch
  5. Step-up onto chair
  6. Squat
  7. Triceps dip on chair
  8. Plank
  9. High knees/running in place
  10. Lunge
  11. Push up and rotation
  12. Side plank

This routine only takes 7 minutes to complete and intensity can be increased by performing more repetitions of some of the exercises in each time interval.

While you can track the time on your own. There are also free apps that help you keep track of time and lets you know which exercise is up next.

One app we have tested is for Android devices. It is called 7 Minute Workout and is available on the Google Play store: here

 

Enjoy your workout and let us know what you think!

Where to Rent Kayaks and Paddle Boards in Seattle September 05 2014

"My escape is to just get in a boat and disappear on the water." - Carl Hiaasen

Escape to the world of nautical adventures, calm morning waters, and the sticky salty air by testing your hand at Kayaking or chartering a boat. In a day where electronics, cellphones, and all things that go beep in the night take over our lives, immersing yourself in natural can be one of the most liberating experiences. Here in Seattle, there are a number of ways that you can become involved in boating.

Whether you are looking to Kayak, paddle board, surf board, or canoe, make sure you are prepared. JoeyBra is the perfect accessory to take with you when you are hitting the high seas. While we don't recommend putting items in the pocket that are water-senstitive and then going swimming, the pockets will keep valuables safe from gentle splashes, misting, and salt.

Review of Hiking Mt. Rainier's Skyline Trail August 27 2014

 

On August 18th, we hiked Mt. Rainier's Skyline Trail. Waking up at dawn to feel the warm glow of summer on your cheeks has to be one of the best feelings in the world. We stumbled out of Seattle at about 6:30am and cruised down I-5 for a few hours. Upon reaching the Mt. Rainier National Park, we paid for entrance ($15 for a day pass), and made our way to Paradise. 

The resort and hotel are simply spectacular. While we didn't stay overnight, I would highly recommend booking a room for a few days so that you can check out all of the beautiful hikes in the area. One of the biggest challenges was actually selecting which hike we wanted to go on. 

After reading hundreds of reviews, we decided to do Mt. Rainier's Skyline Trail which promises spectacular views, glorious wild flowers, mounds of snow, and an aerobic exercise that will get your heart pumping. We ended up having two take two trails to get to the start of Skyline Trail because the direct route was under construction. Most online sources note that the trail is about 6 miles round trip.

 We started off our hike with two water bottles, a chocolate bar, sandwiches, and a small daypack to carry a first-aide kit and wind breakers. Most hikers recommend going around the loop clockwise. I would highly suggest this route as well. On our way up, we wandered though fields of wild flowers that smelled amazing. Within minutes we were both joking that we needed to produce a perfume that captured the Pacific NW wild flower scent. In August, the Lupine and Indian Paint brush are in full blossom. Some of the other flowers were a bit past their prime, but you will not be disappointed. We also spotted Eagles and a very relaxed looking Marmot.

 When going clockwise, the path is very well maintained. The steep portions are punctuated with steps, so the hike is a bit less tough. Portions of the trail were wet due to snow melt, so be cautioned that it can get a bit slippery. The first vantage point is the Panoramic view spot. At this segment of the trail you can choose to either do the high skyline or continue along the main Skyline trail. We opted to hike up to a second look-out and snap a few photos before heading down the main Skyline trail. I must note that we selected this route because we love snow. The other route is probably safer and offers more expansive views, but we just couldn't help ourselves when we saw a giant snow field. We sloshed our way through the snow, which is pretty slippery in August, until we were on dry land again. The path meanders through wild flower fields, mossy tundras, and the alpine trees. After hiking a few miles on flat ground, there were two options 1) head directly back down to Paradise or 2) continue on a second part of the loop to Paradise. We opted for #2 and did a bit of trail running. 

It's hot on the mountain. We were both scorched by the time we got back to the car, even with sunscreen. I would highly suggest bringing extra water and sunscreen. At the very end of the hike, we ran into a section of the trail that is filled with tourists. There is a waterfall and a few bridges, but it was packed. We decided to run through the crowds so that we could skip the traffic. 

Overall, we hiked about 8 miles. It took us about 2.5 hours, and it was an incredible adventure! I would highly recommend the Skyline Trail at Mt. Rainier. 

 

Have a safe and exciting hike!

With 7g of Fiber and 6g of Protein, this power bar packs a serious punch.

I love this bar because it doesn't taste or feel like you are eating a bucket of sugar. Your body will love munching on this sweet and salty treat.

Delightful, filling, and crunchy. This granola is non GMO and contains many super grains, making it an obvious choice for a morning meal. I added some fresh, organic blueberries and a splash of milk.

The NW Women's Show May 01 2014

A few weeks ago, Kyle and I had the privilege of attending Seattle's NW Women's Show. We were both thrilled to be vendors at a show that was filled with energy, new products, and attendees from all over Washington state. The show was a place of discovery, where women could find products that were inventive and new to the market. 

 

Putting together a booth for a trade-show is a ton of work. Kyle and I designed nearly everything you see below. Our booth featured informational posters, clean lighting to make our product pop, adorable chest of drawers to hold all of our product, and even a wood floor. 

 

 

In addition, NW Women's Show offered an incredible array of shows and seminars. Everything from business 101 to how to sell soap. My favorite part of the show had to be the Drag Show, featuring the cast from Le Faux. The costumes were incredible, the music was vivacious, and the audience was on their feet with excitement. I highly recommend checking out the Le Faux show if you were unable to attend the NW Women's Show. I've included a few snapshots of the excitement below: 

 

 

 

Here are a few quick tips for making the most out of the NW Women's Show:

  1. Get there early - Make sure that you plan your schedule so that you can arrive early. There are events throughout the day that you don't want to miss. 
  2. Make a budget - Before you attend the show, make yourself a little budget for splurges. This show has all kinds of neat products, food items, services, and even places to stay. Give yourself a budget so that you can feel free to treat yourself without over indulging. 
  3. Come back on Sunday - Was there an item that you really wanted, but weren't sure about? Come back on Sunday to revisit the vendors to learn more. The second reason to come back on Sunday is to check out the Salvation Army section. They were offering 50% off all products, including designer purses! Oh-la-la! 

 


FDA clears up health concerns about cell phones April 28 2012

Do cell phones pose a health hazard?

Many people are concerned that cell phone radiation will cause cancer or other serious health hazards. The weight of scientific evidence has not linked cell phones with any health problems.

Cell phones emit low levels of radiofrequency energy (RF). Over the past 15 years, scientists have conducted hundreds of studies looking at the biological effects of the radiofrequency energy emitted by cell phones. While some researchers have reported biological changes associated with RF energy, these studies have failed to be replicated. The majority of studies published have failed to show an association between exposure to radiofrequency from a cell phone and health problems.

The low levels of RF cell phones emit while in use are in the microwave frequency range. They also emit RF at substantially reduced time intervals when in the stand-by mode. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known adverse health effects.

The biological effects of radiofrequency energy should not be confused with the effects from other types of electromagnetic energy.

Very high levels of electromagnetic energy, such as is found in X-rays and gamma rays can ionize biological tissues. Ionization is a process where electrons are stripped away from their normal locations in atoms and molecules. It can permanently damage biological tissues including DNA, the genetic material.

The energy levels associated with radiofrequency energy, including both radio waves and microwaves, are not great enough to cause the ionization of atoms and molecules. Therefore, RF energy is a type of non-ionizing radiation. Other types of non-ionizing radiation include visible light, infrared radiation (heat) and other forms of electromagnetic radiation with relatively low frequencies.

While RF energy doesn’t ionize particles, large amounts can increase body temperatures and cause tissue damage. Two areas of the body, the eyes and the testes, are particularly vulnerable to RF heating because there is relatively little blood flow in them to carry away excess heat.
