Hi! I was wondering where you got your theme from. I really like the link bar on top and I want to do something similar to that for my page but cannot find any themes that have it. Thanks!

Hi, anon!

My theme is by Stijn, called Avenue de Paris. The menu, however, I added myself. This website has menus that you can customize and use on your site, if you understand HTML/CSS. Pick a style you like and then customize it. After you design it and create all the links, there are three separate tabs (1. PREVIEW, 2. HTML, 3. CSS). Click the HTML tab and copy the text. Paste it  in your Tumblr Custom Theme HTML section after your header. Then, click on the CSS tab on the other website and copy the text. Paste that in the Advanced > Add Custom CSS section on your Tumblr theme page. And voila!

Hopefully that helps. Good luck! :)

Many gyms have saunas available for use after a work-out; however, they are often underutilized, despite the many benefits that they offer.
B E N E F I T S
+ Increased Blood Circulation — As the body attempts to maintain it’s regular 98.6°F, blood circulation is increased as a homeostatic measure. This eradicates toxins from the body and increases oxygen and nutrient flow to the skin, resulting in a healthier, glowing complexion. [1]
+ Increased Collagen Production — Collagen gives our organs and tissues elasticity. Saunas help to improve collagen production, thus resulting in the more efficient shedding of dead cells and the creation of new ones. [2]
+Less Skin Imperfections — Saunas induce sweating, as the temperature can often reach ~180°F. When we sweat, the body releases dirt and toxins from the pores, resulting in less blackheads, acne, and other impurities. Be sure to rinse or wash yourself immediately after. [3]
+ Increased Athletic Endurance —A study at the University of Otago in New Zealand has shown that regular sauna use after cardiovascular activity can result in improved endurance. [4]
+ Relaxation — The high temperature and subsequent increased blood flow relax the muscles and create an overarching sense of calm. [5]
+ Alleviates Mild Depression — Users with symptoms of depression, especially those with appetite loss, found that they felt much better after heat therapy. [6]
C O N S I D E R A T I O N S
+ Never use the sauna if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
+ Stay adequately hydrated before entering the sauna. Many people lose about a pint of water during a sauna session. Be sure to drink plenty of water to replace lost fluids, at least 2 to 4 glasses afterwards.
+ Do not use the sauna if you have any health conditions, especially related to the heart. It is best to check with your doctor beforehand.
H O W   T O   U S E   A   S A U N A
+ First and foremost, start slowly. Only stay in the sauna for a short amount of time, as long as you’re comfortable. Add a few more minutes each time you use it. If you start to feel dizzy or uncomfortable, exit immediately.
+ Wear what’s comfortable for you. Some people wear work-out gear, a bathing suit, or a towel.
+ Many saunas have 2 benches at different heights. The top bench is generally hotter than the lower bench. Sit where you’re comfortable.

I was just eating a cucumber with some hummus, reveling in the pure deliciousness that is chickpeas and tahini… when I found someone who shares my enthusiasm for culinary perfection.

Got in a few sprinting intervals at 6 this morning… I should probably do that more often. And I made pumpkin pie whey protein pancakes. Om nom nom!

Anyway, I’m going apple picking today for my first time ever! Then to Little Bavaria for Oktoberfest. Time for a full day of festivities and fall-y fun. Yay.

Genetic Roulette | “After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves.” — View for free from October 10-17

CHANGE OF URL

Hey guys. I’ve finally changed my URL like I said I would. It has gone from makemesweatx to kathryncamillefitness. I decided on this one because I feel that it more accurately portrays my blog as it is today— a personal journey as well as a motivational tool for others. :)

Going to the local farmer’s market this Saturday on the square!

It’ll be the first time since I moved here… hope it’s satisfactory. :)

"Ode to Coffee" by Ranjit Nair

O! coffee, where art thou
When I need thee now?
In thy many flavoured blends
A hot cup would be godsend.

I cannot keep awake
Without a short coffee-break.
With thy life-giving aroma
Save me from going into a coma.

Java, Colombian or French Roast
Thy every flavour, I will toast.
To the end thy loyal slave
Three cups a day I will always crave.
