Tips on how to get a good night’s rest

Goodnight room, goodnight moon, goodnight cow jumping over the moon ...
... goodnight laptop, goodnight TV, goodnight face cream, goodnight phone ...

Strike a Pose

Lei Chic You're already bending over backwards for your boss's fifth "high-priority" report this week when your just-broken-up best friend texts AGAIN ("He said 'take care'... Does that mean he misses me?"). Looks like a sunset sob session will bump your plans to finally pick up your two-week old dry cleaning, restock your empty fridge and burn off the Doritos and M&Ms you called lunch.

No question about it - you're stretched thin. Lucky for you, CorePower Yoga opened its first Hawaii studio last week in Kahala Mall, which means you can regain control of your life (and your mind) with a one-stop... Read more »

Toes on the Pose

Lei Chic LC: Is there a problem?

ATF Officer: Are you aware of HRS 134-9?

LC: I have a license to bear arms.

ATF Officer: But those floppy triceps you're packing are federally offensive. It wouldn't be so bad if you concealed them under baggy sweaters. In that tank top, we have no choice but to charge you with using a flabby arm in the commission of a fashion crime.

LC: Officer I didn't know! I mean, the holidays are so tough! I didn't have time and there was... Read more »

Snack Attacks

Lei ChicIt starts with leftover Halloween candy and ends with sugar-loaded cocktails and canapés sometime after midnight. Welcome to the start of your Season’s Eatings.

The only workout that fits in your busy holiday schedule is bicep curls with your Black Friday buys. So you have to count on watching your calories, something you swear requires a calculus degree (how much is a half-piece of chocolate haupia pie WITHOUT most of the crust but WITH a small scoop of low-fat ice cream?)

You need an easy-to-follow plan that takes the guesswork out of... Read more »
