2014 Weekly Challenge #9:  Body Care!

We all know that exercise is an integral part of getting and keeping our bodies healthy. But how many of us really take care of the body we are requiring so much of? This week's challenge is all about taking care of your body.

What is body care?  Glad you asked!!!

Ice Massage: Fill a small paper cup up about half way with water, and freeze. When frozen solid, peel down the paper to just below the ice. Use this to massage areas that are tight or sore - just use the ice and dig right in. The ice acts as an anti-inflammatory to help ease the pain and inflammation that can come after a hard workout. (I especially like to do this one on my shins after a long run.)

Massage: Need I say more? Who doesn't love a good massage?!?... Read More

2014 Weekly Challenge #8: Eat your (VEGGIE) Soup!

2014 Weekly Challenge #8:  Eat your (VEGGIE) Soup!

One of the the best things you can do for your body is fuel it right, and there's nothing better than veggies.

In the winter, at least for me, it gets a little harder to get in all 7 to 9 servings of vegetables my body needs. When it is cold and rainy outside, and all I want is comfort food, a salad or crunchy carrots just doesn't seem to fit the bill.

That's where this soup comes in. Warm and delicious, and versatile enough to enjoy as a snack or a full meal, veggie soup is comfort good that it good for your body.

Your challenge for the week: Cook up a big pot of veggie soup on the first day of the challenge. Add your favorite veggies, or add some protein to make it a complete meal. Eat it when you need a snack, or a meal, or just something warm and delicious. Enjoy your comfort food, and know that you are doing something great for your body and your health.

Have a great week!

Modesto cops add 'armadillo' to force


MODESTO - Modesto police have a lot more eyes on the streets of troubled neighborhoods with the addition of an "armadillo."

That's the name of the vehicle that resembles a SWAT truck but is actually equipped with eight cameras that feed live images to police buildings, police cars, and even officers' phones.

"We're getting it out there for citizens who are concerned with a drug house or gang activity in their neighborhood," police spokesperson Heather Graves said.

Graves said the armadillo will be put in areas where neighbors have phoned in their complaints of criminal activity. She said it will only be used in public places where an officer could use his vision to see the same activity.
