In the U.S., we are overwhelmed with the idea of choice. We have so many options in front of us all of the time that it is hard to say no. This holds true for the food available to us, too. We have Chinese food, Italian food, Polish food and so much more. We have extra-large fries and half-pound burgers around every corner. While at face value these choices seem to be beneficial, I think the stereotypical American diet does more harm than good.

Ladies, it’s time to step off the cardio machine and into the weight room. When I go to the gym, I see so many girls confining themselves to cardio machines and floor mats, and while these workouts have their time and place, neglecting weight training is a big "no-no" for reaching fitness goals.

The problem I have with the whole idea of using social media as a means of screening and gaining a sense of character is that it is literally merging two entities together that are meant to stay separate: work life and personal/home life.
