This week the host of Fashion Flash is Shawna of Female Fat Loss Over 40. And if there is a time of year when we really need Shawna it’s during the Christmas holidays. Seriously, it seems that every holiday activity has its own high calorie food. We fill up stockings with sweets, tie candy canes on presents and warm up after ice skating with hot chocolate. And then there are goodies in Christmas songs and stories– the plum pudding in A Christmas Carol, the dancing sugarplums in the Nutcracker, and of course there is that runaway gingerbread man. And unfortunately, there are no traditional Christmas exercise and nutrition programs– until now that is. This week Shawna has focused on tips to stay in shape in times when the only non-fattening thing on the table seems to be a glass of water.
And when you’ve clicked through Shawna and the rest of the timely Fashion Flash posts , take a moment to check out my first n0-nonsense video– “The Truth About Sunscreens”.Friends and family who are heading south for the holidays had asked me for a sunscreen cheat sheet. Rather than download a sheaf of posts on sun and aging, I made this video.
