An Orange a Day Keeps the Cold Away..

I have a horribly low-tolerant immune system! I mean, I feel as if I am always getting sick!
This past week I caught a cold and it has lasted a miserable week and is still kickin'!
I have little energy and I have been napping every free moment I get--(which makes for not very productive days)
For this reason, I will be eating an orange a day in hopes to boost my Vitamin C levels as well as help my immune system! I hope this will help.

What do you all do to help yourselves to stay healthy and not get sick!?

Ray Bans

Sifting through Tumblr one day--I found this photo:
Immediately I wanted these glasses! I have browsed around online a little and could not find a thing similiar to these shades.
Then I realized: are these photoshopped? As in, did someone copy and paste this pink bow on the glasses--that could be it to.
Either way it is driving me nuts and if they are real, I would love a pair so if you all have any information, please let me know :)

Hot Yoga!

So I have not started yet-- however I am going to try Hot Yoga!
I have definitely heard amazing things and am trying to get myself into serious shape-- also hot yoga, also known as Bikram Yoga encompasses poses/stretches, also known as asanas, that help to improve one's overall emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being as well as help one to sit in meditation for long periods of time. Some of the benefits are also said to include: flexibility, weight loss, stress relief, boost your immune system, help with aches, injuries, and arthritis, and increased athletic performance

I am so, so excited to find a location to do so, however I would love your help on some key items:
1) What to Wear?
Many women where sports bras, however let's face it: I am just not in that kind of shape to be comfortable.
2) What Kind of Mat to Get?
I do not want to spend a lot at all. Also, I have heard one's with a sticky bottom are best because if not, it will move?
3) Water
How much water should I consume before/ after!? I am so bad at drinking the daily amount of water I should and being that you sweat SO much during hot yoga, I want to make sure I am not going to faint or anything
4) Have you tried Hot Yoga?
What did YOU think!?
