Vitamin D is important for bone health and to prevent osteoporosis. The best source of vitamin D is safe exposure to UV sunlight. You only need to spend a short period of time in the sun each day to get enough vitamin D. Food alone can’t provide enough vitamin D, however dietary sources include eggs, oily fish, some fortified breakfast cereals and fortified spreads. The United States is the only developed nation and 1 of 2 countries out of 185 surveyed by the International Labour Organization that does not offer some degree of paid maternity leave; it is 1 of only 4 high-wealth countries without paid paternity or parental leave ( 49 ). As of March 2016, only 13% of workers in the private sector had access to paid family leave, which includes parental leave or leave taken to care for a seriously ill family member ( 50 ). In addition, the rate at which new mothers with access to maternity leave use that leave has remained stagnant. A recent analysis showed no significant trend upward or downward in women who took maternity leave between 1994 and 2015 ( 51 ). The analysis showed that 47.5% of women who took maternity leave in 2015 were compensated, an average increase of only 0.65% over nearly 2 decades. Needless to say, fitness didn’t have the massive cultural following that it has today. In fact, doctors at the time advised against gym usage, claiming that there were dangers attached to lifting weights and vigorous exercise. In spite of this, the concept of the gym caught on, and much of the standard gym equipment we’re familiar with today was invented during this time. According to several studies, added sugar increases the risk of obesity along with other lifestyle disorders like type 2 diabetes, and heart diseases. One easy hack to lose weight is to consume less added sugar. Reading labels of the foods you purchase is one way of doing this, since some of the so-called healthy foods also contain a good amount of sugar. MALLORY BERSCHAUER grew up in Wenatchee and recently moved back to the Valley after spending 15+ years in Seattle. She began participating in OULA exercise classes in 2015. She was hooked instantly and loved that the exercise was fun, upbeat, and felt more like dancing with friends rather than “working out”. She became a Certified OULA Instructor in 2018 because she enjoyed OULA so much, she wanted to be able to bring it with her wherever life took her. She is thrilled to be back in the Wenatchee Valley and is excited to share this fun dance fitness class with the WRAC community.

I’m not saying you should take a lifelong pass on fitness, but what I am saying is that if you’re killing it on the cardio machine merely to burn calories and squeeze into your extra-skinny skinny jeans, you may need to re-think this strategy. When it comes to losing weight, it’s more about what you put in your mouth than what you’re burning off. Among participants in the Weight Control Registry, walking is the most frequent form of exercise, and there was no difference in weight maintenance after three years among people who participated in the most physical activity compared to those exercising the least. The fibrous benefits of kale are no secret to anyone who’s caught the down-wind of someone who just ate a kale-icious dinner. “Fiber-packed veggies like kale support a weight loss journey by keeping you full between mealtimes,” says Richards. It’s also very high in antioxidants which, she says, are thought to help reduce inflammation in the body which can interfere with weight loss. Some states provide grant programs to localities. A 2012 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation study shows states that take comprehensive action to reduce childhood obesity rates have proven successful. Some employers also are encouraging healthy lifestyles for their employees. Employer-sponsored health promotion programs—also known as worksite or workplace wellness programs—encourage regular physical activity, stress management, healthy eating and not smoking. Providing ways to change behaviors associated with a higher incidence of chronic disease and disability can lead to healthier employees, lower health care and health insurance costs, reduce absenteeism and increase productivity. To realize all the benefits of regular cardio, you need to engage in 30 or more minutes of aerobic exercise at least three times per week. Again, this should be in conjunction with weight training. I recommend alternating to avoid burning yourself out. That being said, sometimes men and women’s minds really are off on two different planets, especially in the earlier years of a relationship. One partner might believe that they’ve got such a deep connection that exclusivity and commitment are obvious and don’t need to be spoken, while for the other partner, nothing is set in stone until both partners have verbally agreed to everything. Committment and monogamy mean different things to different people, regardless of gender. If this is the source of a man’s infidelity, it’s often just a matter of sitting down and clearly laying out your needs and boundaries of a relationship with him, and seeing if that’s what he’d like to pursue as well.

But there’s even more to it than that. Regular physical activity may enhance arousal for women. And men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction than are men who don’t exercise. Some personal trainers and other fitness professionals are also offering free or low-cost workouts and fitness tips for people self-isolating at home. According to HHS, adults should aim to get 150 minutes to 300 minutes of moderate physical activity or 75 minutes to 150 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity a week. A gym membership isn’t cheap. IBISWorld reported that in 2014, the average gym member paid $41 a month in membership fees, or about $490 a year for the right to sweat on treadmills and stationary bikes. There are disadvantages to cross-dressing such as trying to explain it to your girlfriend, or worrying about what someone may think about your interesting shoe collection that you happen to use to exercise out in the park at night (yes, there are a few men who walk in parks wearing heels for short periods of time). Furthermore, women’s clothing is often complicated and regarded sometimes with disdain by both men and women, since they often emphasise style and form over function (too skimpy or revealing, too many strings etc). But what are the advantages of MTF crossdressing and how are things changing? There are many and here are a potential nine, not in order of importance.
