If you're strength training, give your muscles a one- to three-minute rest between sets, so your muscles have time to replenish their energy before pushing hard once again. But if you'd rather build your endurance, rest only 15 to 30 seconds between sets. These shorter breaks will also increase your cardiovascular threshold, since the shorter recovery time keeps your heart rate elevated.

As a woman, eating fewer than 1,200 calories a day to lose weight is ill advised. When you skimp under this, it could mean you're missing essential amounts of important nutrients—magnesium, folate and zinc. It could also mean that you temporary lose fluids or muscle, rather than permanently lose fat. To make sure you're losing in a healthy way, stop by the Wellness Department for advice or to enroll in one of our programs.

A 2012 study concluded that diet could influence how attractive you are to a prospective partner. Within just six weeks of eating more fruits and vegetables, the study subjects' skin color changed enough to make others think of them as being healthier and more attractive. So enjoy lots of brightly colored fruits and vegetables to make your skin glow!

Farmers markets open in many communities this month and offer a great place to stock up on locally grown fruits and vegetables. Overlake is proud to sponsor the Bellevue Farmers Market, located at First Presbyterian Church of Bellevue. Visit the market on Thursdays between 3 and 7 p.m. for wholesome and nutritious food options. Many growers raise their crops organically and can talk to you about their farming practices.
