Power of Morning Exercise

From 8 Minutes in the Morning to a Flat Belly by Jorge Cruise

"When I first tried to exercise in the morning, I thought that it wouldn't work for me (cause I wasn't a morning person). But a funny thing happened. Each time I managed to get out of bed & exercise in the morning, I noticed that I felt (good) for the rest of the day."

"Researchers found that women who exercised in the morning reported less tension & greater feelings of contentment than those who didn't...Only 25 % of evening exercisers consistently do their exercise compared to 75% of those who exercise in the morning. When you commit to exercising in the morning, you bypass excuses. Morning is the easiest time to control".

I do yoga for at least 30 minutes every morning because it makes me feel good for the rest of the day. Invest 30-60 minutes each morning in your health and exercise. Get fitter & healthier faster cause you're more consistent.

Trust is one of those funny things. We think that, because we trust someone in one situation that we can take that same trust and extend it into another situation. The thing is, sometimes it works, but often it doesn’t. What we need to realise is that there is such a thing as situational trust. This is simply a rule that says you can’t always trust the same person in multiple situations in your life. Let me explain. I define trust as our ability to RELY on:
A person, or people Companies and organisations to deliver an outcome to us.
What happens with trust is that, when we have it in a relationship, it’s great. Things are calm, there’s less conflict, things don’t always go right, but you can at least sit down and have a conversation about it when something’s not right.

Written by Vanessa Hall

I agree. I trust people or organizations I know for certain things, but not others. I don't think we can really rely on anyone else to meet our needs if we don't honor and value ourselves first.

Really Achieving Your Dreams

I just read this great book about Achieving Your Dreams and want to discuss it with this group. It's by Randy Pausch. It's well-known title is "The Last Lecture". In it, he talks about teamwork which we don't have much of right now. Everyone's doing their own thing, but not really helping each others. There is more than 1 way to do business. I'd love to make a profit with my idea, but it's more about heart. I really want to help people, but without a budget, I can only do so much. I want all of you who read my blog to sign an agreement:

1. To work constructively as a group, to help each other without any hidden motive,
2. To help co-host an event or spread the word about this blog & my group,
3. To give honest feedback & positive suggestions (no complaints!)

In return, I'll help you grow your social and professional life. Agreed? (Please reply in comments). Watch "The Last Lecture" on YouTube.

Yoga + Networking Works

I went to Clover Park early to set up for yoga and met this wonderful group. I told them about my Holistic Health Club and invited them to the next event. I also met a martial arts group and invited them. We began our yoga session at 9:30 am and enjoyed a bit of networking at the end. I told them about Yoga Month and Step Up Women's Network. Steve Gettier joined me at 10:30 am. We carpooled to the Mar Vista Market and talked to both Diana Rodgers, Manager of MVFM and the Open Mar Vista group. I told them about my blog and cookbook idea. I just love to connect with open people, refer people to good things and inform them about local events. I hope to earn enough doing this so that I can pay all my bills with a little extra left over. See photos at:


Neighborhood Social Network

I just joined Open Mar Vista, a neighborhood social network and grassroots movement to keep Mar Vista residents informed and connected. I am the Founder of Holistic Health Club in Los Angeles. I wonder if there is a network for the Brentwood community?

Fashion and Make-up Day

I enjoyed a day of fashion and make-up thanks to Free Spirited Women's Meetup and Step Up Women's Network. I checked out the up-coming designers and got some good leads for future Holistic Health events. I learned some industry make-up tips at the Step Up event and met Ariana, a health/ wellness coach. Networking can be lots of fun.


Love vs Fear

From Christine Comaford-Lynch author of Rules for Renegades

"People are either coming from love or coming from fear. If someone's coming from love, I know they'll want to help me and be supportive...I hold onto the belief that people are fundamentally good, it's easier to deal with them in a more compassionate, less reactive way...So this week, I want you to focus on connecting to your spiritual side. A fun and easy way to do this is by listening to your intuition...paying attention to that small, still voice within."

Yoga lets me connect to the love inside me and treat myself as well as others in a more compassionate, less reactive way. Yoga helps me to focus on connecting to my spiritual side and listen to that small, still voice within.

Women Should Work Out to Improve Mood

Source: United Press International

Middle-age women who exercise to lose weight spend less time exercising than women who exercise to reduce stress, a U.S. researcher said. (What this means is that healthcare providers should emphasize physical activity as a means of enhancing quality of life instead of of prescribing exercise to prevent disease).


I practice yoga daily because it helps reduce stress. I support Yoga Month/ Global Mala in September & my Associate ID is 4184. Sign up for a VIP Pass now (proceeds go to Youth Health Alliance, a non-profit)

Walking in Brentwood

Walking in LA with Google Maps, Walkscore
Google Maps gets walkable! (via grist)

All you have to do is click the “Walking” option in Google Maps to get directions. The function works for trips up to 6.2 miles long — so if you’re training for a 10k, you can easily map out a running route that takes real-time traffic and terrain into account now.
We’re still waiting on Google Transit for bus and subway directions — as well as a biking directions feature.

The more detailed look at the walkability of different LA neighborhoods is pretty interesting. Mid city tops the list with a score of 92.

Thanks, Siel (Green L.A. Girl for this)

I've mapped some of my Brentwood walks already.

“Conscious Cooking” Classes

Rhonda and I are planning to host a series of “conscious cooking” classes using mostly local and seasonal produce. We want to get some feedback. I have been a foodie all my life and my love of food made me become overweight as a kid. In fourth grade, I had to wear adults pants cut down to fit me even though I was active and swam almost every day. My mom stopped buying me ice cream or other treats. Then, I started helping my mom in the kitchen as she cooked healthy dishes. I realized that food can taste good and be good for me. I still craved ice cream and treats, but I ate more healthily. I believe that we can all benefit from learning how to cook and eat consciously. If you have a healthy recipe, please post it in the comments. We plan to publish and sell an e-cookbook if there is enough interest.

Benefits of Probiotics

"Probiotic actually means for life. Probiotics are “good” microbes that can enhance human health. Probiotics have been found to improve symptoms of irritable bowel disease, tolerance to anti-biotic therapy, mineral absorption, manage lactose intolerance, enhance immune system, and reduce inflammation. Products that state “Live active cultures” do not necessarily mean they have any probiotic effect".

The Lazy Environmentalist

The Sundance Channel titled, The Lazy Environmentalist hosted by author and green expert, Josh Dorfman is seeking all types from the food world who have the desire to become more environmentally conscious.Show participants will work one-on-one with our host, whose task it will be to offer easy, affordable, convenient and stylish options to their green challenges.

We are sincerely interested in tackling challenges that affect your group. The pilot is scheduled for a two-day shoot during the week of August 18th. For more information about our host, go to

Joy of Laughter

I went to Kim Selbert's Joy of Laughter class today and it's very different than I expected. World Laughter Day was fun, but her class at Shakti's Element's a workout. I danced, moved, clapped, laughed with 9 other people. Kim is a certified Laughter Yoga Leader and passionate about bringing laughter to everyone's life. I am so glad that she joined my Yoga Meetup and supported me from the beginning when the Holistic Health Club was just a dream. Thank you Kim for being a great friend and Laughter Leader.

Ingrid Cheng

Why I Practice Yoga

My own yoga practice began about 4 years ago when my eldest sister urged me to try a class. I was not coordinated and was a slow student. I had a hard time with the balancing poses and more challenging postures. I didn't advance as quickly as my sister to a Level 2-3 class. I never thought that I'd become a yoga teacher. All that changed when I went to Global Mala last year. I was so inspired by the yoga community that I decided to become a yoga teacher and never looked back. I believe that everyone can do some form of yoga. You don't need to be in shape or flexible. You can be like me, a slow student. It doesn't matter because it is not about competition or comparison with others. It's about your own personal journey. When I'm stressed & unhappy, doing yoga helps me deal with it all. No matter what, I always make time for yoga, even if just for 20-30 minutes a day. I support Yoga Month in September & my Associate ID is 4184. Sign up for a VIP Pass (attend 2 days of workshops) and support this non-profit event benefiting Youth Health Alliance at

More Tips to Live By

1. Don't judge people by their relatives, (looks or income).
2. Talk slowly but think quickly (and listen more than you speak).
3. When someone asks you a (rude) question you, smile and ask, 'Why do you ant to know?' 4. Great love and great achievements involve great risk (get out of your comfort zone).
5. Say 'hello' to people and bless you' when you hear someone sneeze.
6. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
7. Remember the 3 R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for your actions
8. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
9. When you've made a mistake, (be quick to correct it & forgive others for their mistakes).
10. Spend some time alone.

Further tips from Paula Verbit & Ingrid Cheng

10 Rules to Live By

1. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
2. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to (who really listens to you whether they agree with you or not).
3. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
4. When you say, 'I love you,' mean it (and show it).
5. When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye.
6. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
7. Believe in love at first sight (or first love).
8. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
9. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
10. In disagreements, fight fairly (don't say something that you'll regret later).

14 Super-foods

Have you heard of a dietary strategy that is called "adding"? The idea of "adding" is to avoid any sudden changes in your diet, but gradually make better choices by "adding" super-foods and herbs into your diet. These super -foods are readily available from your neighborhood grocer or health store. We can make better choices in the way we eat and live. The power to live longer, healthier and happier lives is within our grasp. All we need to do is gain the knowledge. To get you started, I have a list of 14 Super-foods (and a brief description of their benefits) that you can start "adding" into your diet immediately.

Why is there Traffic?

"Why is there traffic? The answer: abundant land in the early 1900s, the freedom autos afford, historically cheap gas, zoning efforts that segregated housing from commercial and industrial areas, lack of coordinated planning, lack of investment in mass transit. If we lived at work, we'd be home by now". Steve Hymon, L.A. Times.

What about weekend traffic? If everyone go carless just 1 day a week, think of how much gas we'd save as a whole, how there'll be less traffic & pollution. I went car-free the whole weekend. It was a good feeling, not being dependent on my car. My dream is to be able to work from home full-time so I don't have to commute. I submitted Holistic Health Club's idea for a chance to win $10,000. Please vote for my idea at:

Exercise Tips

"Exercise is cumulative. The more active you are, even when you're not 'exercising,' the better results you'll have," says Dr. Cedric X. Bryant, Ph.D. "Your body is meant to move a lot. So, avoid thinking of exercise as something you do for only half an hour."

No cost ways to stay active are:
1. take the stairs instead of the elevator
2. park a little farther away from the mall or grocery store entrance
3. (Bring a salad to work - I have a Chinese chicken salad recipe that I use and enjoy every bite, then I go for a short walk around the block)
4. (Go car-less. Walk, bike, take the bus).
5. (Make household chores into fun exercise - blast the music, engage your stomach muscles when you vacuum or do other chores).

Adapted from:

Ways to Look Younger

1. Use a body scrub made of sea salt or sugar during your shower.
2. Put 2 slices of cool cucumber on your eyelids to de-puff eyes.
3. After eating watermelon, use peel to scrub face, then wash with water - great for your skin.
4. Avoid eating refined foods such as white bread & pasta if you have adult acne.
5. Let your hair dry naturally and curl partially-dried hair with ionic curler.
6. Whiten your teeth naturally - brush with a teaspoon of baking powder, let sit & rinse.

Food Safety

USDA to List Stores in Meat Recalls

"People want to know if they need to be on the lookout for recalled meat and poultry from their local store," Agriculture Secretary Edward T. Schafer said. "By providing lists of retail outlets during recalls, USDA's Food Safety Inspection Service will improve public health protection."The announcement comes on the heels of two serious beef recalls that began in late June and were expanded over the Fourth of July weekend.

Car-Free Weekend

I rode my bike to the Co-op at 1525 Broadway this morning and got there in 10 minutes, taking Bundy to Ohio/ Broadway where there is a bike lane. I bought some small items & got back home by 8 am. It's the start of my car-free weekend. I'm committed to carpool, ride my bike or the bus this weekend. It's a good feeling, not being dependent on my car. My dream is to be able to work from home full-time so I don't have to commute.

We're really excited about this opportunity to educate and entertain people - the show will be about Food as Medicine using mostly local, seasonal produce from Farmers Market and grocery stores like the Co-op.

We're looking for sponsors and wonder if you know anyone who'd be interested to sponsor us. Thanks.

Super Food for Your Mind

Source: Health World

There’s one food in the diet of the Far East that can improve your memory and could help ward off dementia, and it’s especially beneficial if you’re over 65. It's tempe, a fermented whole soybean produce, which can help improve memory in older people if it’s eaten every day. Its high folate levels have beneficial effects and may protect against the adverse effects of the phytoestrogens. Tofu is a food that is high in phytoestrogens and seniors should limit their intake since these estrogens seems to impair memory.

Top 10 Exercise Excuses

1. General apathy. "I don't really care about exercising. I work hard enough every day that I don't need an exercise routine."

2. Low on the priority list. "I am very busy and exercise just isn't a priority right now."

3. Embarrassment. "I'm so out of shape, I'm afraid people will laugh at me."

4. Health issues and/or chronic pain. "I have a bad back, bad knees, etc., so I can't work out." (Are you doing anything to alleviate your pain besides taking medication?)

5. Lack of a routine or boredom with the current exercise routine. "I never know what to do at the gym. I don't like doing the same thing all the time."

6. Location/ convenience. "There just isn't a gym/ studio that's close to my work or home."

7. Budget issues. "It's just too expensive to join a gym and buy all the necessary gear (clothes, shoes, etc)."

8. Bad experience. "I had a bad experience at the gym/ studio (with a personal trainer, yoga teacher, obnoxious members, etc)."

9. Lack of motivation. "I'm too tired to work out at the end of the day. Isn't there a quick and easy way to get in shape and lose the weight?"

10. Lack of time. "With kids, a husband, a full time job and aging parents, I just don't have the time to exercise".

Mark your calendars. Green Health Party on Sat 7/19, 12-3 pm. Holistic Health Club's mission is to educate and raise awareness about health and the environment. Here, we address all the excuses and help people be proactive about their health.

Immigrants Value Democracy

My parents escaped Communist China and moved to Hong Kong (a British colony at that time). My sisters & I were born there. We came to U.S.A in 1984 because they wanted us to have a better education. We also came because the U.S. is a democratic government & China was to take over Hong Kong in 1997. I think immigrants value democracy more because most of them have been oppressed or persecuted by their own government. I think immigrants are the backbone of America.

Businesses for a Safe Climate

I just signed Businesses for a Safe Climate. Global warming isn't just a problem for glaciers and polar bears. It's a problem for businesses too. Scientists have warned that if serious steps are not taken soon to curb global warming that it will have dangerous consequences for our climate. And many economists are saying the exact same thing about the future of the business climate. Healthy businesses can't exist if there are not healthy communities to support them. That’s why we’re launching the "Businesses for a Safe Climate" petition.

Green Referrals

We have been trying to support local companies in my area for website design and marketing, but they are not familiar with green. So we try and educate them, and explain to them why we won’t budge on using anything other than green products. So I am asking for referrals. If anyone has any companies that they are working with that are great at any of the following, please let me know:

We are looking for a company that is familiar with managing Google Ad words.
We are looking for a great marketing company and that has connections at Planet Green, the Green Guide, Tree Hugger or etc.
We are looking for someone that can help us maximize the use of the website.
We are looking for someone that is familiar with OSCommerce.
We have a great PR director for the Retail store, but we really want someone to promote the website.

Thank you for any referrals.

The themes of the articles revolve around “New Ideas for Networking” and “Successful Businesses Begin with Healthy Entrepreneurs” –

1.How health, wellness, and/or activity have supported your business growth and prosperity (ie. When you were walking, you came up with ‘the’ creative idea that took your business to the next level, when you focused on your health, your business began to prosper, etc..)

2.Unique places or situations where you have networked your business. (if you are not sure if it is unique, send it in anyway!)
