If you've been going to the gym regularly and not seeing great results, it may be because you're unknowingly mangling your moves (no offense).

LUNGES: WHAT YOU DO WRONG
You lean forward, causing your front heel to rise.
LUNGES: FIX YOUR FORM
1. "Narrow your starting stance," says Gray Cook, author of Athletic Body in Balance. The closer your feet are, the harder your core has to work to stabilize your body.
2. "As you do the lunge, focus on moving your torso only up and down, not pushing it forward," says Craig Rasmussen, a fitness coach at Results Fitness in Santa Clarita, California. This keeps your weight balanced evenly through your front foot,Read More »from What youâ€™re doing wrong at the gym

As you probably already know, Jeff and I spent this past weekend visiting my family in Pennsylvania. We spent a day on the bay and ate some amazing pasta salad made by my lovely sister! I liked it so much that I wanted to make it for Jeff and I to have on-hand for lunches this week. Kind of like I did with the chicken salad recipe (which was also inspired by my sister's recipe). Maybe she should start a food blog? (Click on any of the pictures for more recipes on my blog!)Read More »from User post: Summer Pasta Salad

We've spent the past six months wishing, praying and hoping for the warmth of summer. Well, those scorching 90+ degree days are finally here - and while I wouldn't trade them in for the blistering cold temps we all endured this past winter, I will admit that I forgot how draining the summer sun can actually be. By the time you make it through your morning commute, your energy levels have probably already taken a huge nosedive, which will only progressively get worse as the temperature and humidity rise throughout the day.
Working out, whether it's in the morning or evening, will inevitably become increasingly difficult in the upcoming months. But there's no better way to get through the Summer heat than by snacking on healthy, low-calorie snacks that will help boost your energy and metabolism. Click through for some of my favorite nutritious and satisfying between-meal snacks.

With Memorial Day weekend upon us, we're well into Spring, and I hope you've had some time to enjoy your favorite things about the season, from gardening to driving with the windows down and the music up. Warmer weather also opens the door for a new hot romance or a rekindled spark in a long-term relationship. With Summer and even longer days on the horizon, consider these seven outdoor date ideas.
- Go Sailing: If you live by the water, take a sail or a sunset cruise and breathe in that ocean air.
- Go to an Outdoor Concert: Most bands and artists tour during the Spring so treat each other to tickets to your favorite show.
- Plan a Picnic: Plan a picnic on a lazy Sunday. Pack some non-perishable foods and enjoy the sunshine all day if you can. Take a nap, read a book, or challenge each other to a game of Scrabble.
- Shuck Your Own Oysters: Although you can eat oysters year-round, I love eating them in the sunshine with a nice glass of white wine.

Surely we're not the only ones rejoicing that our weekends can now begin with a trip to the farmers market to pick up the best produce the season has to offer. The only thing better than the R&R that naturally comes with the lazy days of summer are the endless choices of fruits and vegetables. The colors, aromas, and flavors make eating during this time of year tastier than any other.
The first day of summer isn't on the calendar until June 21, but its produce is already available in many parts of the country.
Whether you're harvesting your own backyard garden, or reaping the benefits of a local farmer's harvest, here is a list of the in-season produce for June, as well as recipes to help you enjoy them.
In-season vegetables include asparagus, artichokes, and green beans; for fruits, you'll want to look for strawberries, cherries, and grapes.

Whether you are an adventurous cocktail type or are content with a simple glass of wine, spring and summer happy hours seem all the more fun when you can couple it up with halter tops, sundresses and frolicking in the warm summer sun. Moreover, restaurants and bars seem to become extraordinarily creative at this time of year with their libations.
Unfortunately, many summer-time drinks come with a lot of extra calories. And although one drink might not be so detrimental, two or three can really start to add up. So what is a summer happy-hour lover to do? Here's a simple breakdown of the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to popular summer cocktails:
The Good: Wine, champagne and wine spritzers (with club soda), are by far the best choices when it comes to carbs and calories per serving. Dry liquor, such as vodka or gin, and plain, unsweetened mixers are also a relatively good bet. Finally, choosing light beers, such as Miller Light, Corona Light and others are better thanRead More »from Summer cocktails: How to splurge without the guilt
