A SHERLOCK HOLMES FOR

FASHION Photograph by J. Alan Paul Photography

Fashion detective, Alicia Underlee Nelson, busts open some false cases of fashion myths. Check out her style expertise on her site, prairiestylefile.com, which takes a look at all styles from North Dakota and the surrounding areas.

Myth: You should always avoid mixing colors like black and blue or black and brown. Truth: A range of neutrals can look very distinguished. For best results, be certain that the colors are distinct, since faded neutrals look shabby and muddy tones make the colors appear to run together. Choose at least one item that includes all the colors in the outfit – often an accessory like a scarf or necklace – to tie the ensemble together.

Myth: Clashing colors will make you look clownish. Truth: If you love color and it looks great on you, wear it. But unless you’re channeling Nicki Minaj, less is more. Make contrasting colors your main statement and keep your hair, makeup, accessories and overall silhouette sleek. Bright colors pop and dark colors recede, so wear the dark color on the part of your body you want to de-emphasize and the bright or light color on the part you really want to show off.

Myth: Horizontal stripes will add the illusion of extra pounds. Truth: Horizontal stripes can be wonderfully flattering – if you understand how to make the scale of your body work with the size of the stripe. Wide stripes stop the eye and add emphasis, so placing a wide stripe at the bust or across the shoulders can balance your figure. For an all over stripe, look at your body to get a sense of scale. Petites can wear thinner stripes and average to curvy women should stick to a medium scale stripe.

Myth: Tall girls should ditch the stilts. Truth: Fashion is about embracing your strengths. Height is a glorious thing so if you see shoes as works of art or you like the extra dose of confidence that killer shoes can bring, wear what you

78

StrideÀ!8679

love, no matter your height. The same goes if you’re 4 feet 11 inches tall and adore flats.

Myth: Wearing gold and silver jewelry together is a big no-no. Truth: Mixing metals looks modern and unexpected. But why stop with just gold and silver? Try throwing in rose gold, fabric or leather accessories for a great mix of textures and colors. The key to consistency is to combine items with similar weights and textures. Delicate chains and ribbons play well together while chunky jewelry looks best with other dramatic pieces.

She has covered every aspect of health and nutrition and has also worked with a wide range of age groups. Read on as she answers some commonly asked fitness and nutritional questions.

NUTRITION 7:

ADVICE StrideÀ!8679


s s e n t i F Stride: What are some of the best ways to prevent and reduce soreness after a workout? Zastre: First, some soreness is normal, especially if you have a change in your normal routine. Don’t let it stop you from working out! You want to make sure you get in a proper cool down for your body and a good postworkout stretch. These are two areas that are often left out of a workout. Foam rolling or a massage helps to break up the knots and can help with trigger points, such as IT bands or shin splints. Heat, like a sauna or hot tub, helps increase blood flow to the muscles which helps in reducing recovery time. Lastly, stay hydrated.

Stride: I’m trying to tone up my abs for an upcoming vacation. What are some of the most effective ab workouts? Zastre: Pilates is an excellent way to work your core, as well as gain some flexibility. If Pilates isn’t for you, there are many other ways to get a great ab workout. Planks and stability ball roll outs are great ab exercises for all fitness levels.

Nutrition Stride: I have a Black Tie Event around the corner and I want to look my best in my outfit. Are there certain ways to slim down in a short amount of time? Zastre: Losing weight isn’t a fast process, but there are some things you can do to help. Like I mentioned before, water is important, so drink lots of it. Dehydration can cause cravings and make you feel hungrier than you really are. Stay away from alcohol during this time frame. Reduce your calories but increase your vegetable intake as it will help you feel more full throughout the day without the added calories. Protein will also help you stay satisfied. Try eating every three or four hours. This helps you to keep your portions under control so at dinner time you don’t over indulge.

Stride: I’m confused about how much protein I should be including in my diet. Can you clear that up? Zastre: It is recommended that 10-35 percent of your daily calories come from protein. Women should be getting around 46 grams and men around 56 grams. Many people fall below these levels and it can make it difficult to sustain weight loss.

Pucks. Fargo Force will take on Waterloo while sporting one-of-a-kind jerseys, which get auctioned off following the game. “The more the player’s get into this, the more the jersey’s go for. We tell them, you can do what ever you want... just keep your shorts on,” joked Whitney Baumgartner, Special Events, Media and Community Relations Manager for the Fargo Force. They also encourage game goers to dress in purple this night to show support for cancer victims. This year they will be selling purple pucks signed by the players. A lucky few who purchase the puck with golden signatures will get to meet that player after the game. The first 2,500 fans through the doors will receive either pom poms or

koozies, which will of course be purple. So be sure to get there early! All proceeds from the Suits-NSticks event and auction will go to embrace. Last year they raised around $27,000 and this year they are shooting for $32,000. Tickets for Suits-N-Sticks must

be purchased by Feb. 6. So grab your suits and your purple and come out to support a good cause.

with Em Duncan

Next time you want to skip out on the gym because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too tired or you will tomorrow... think again. Em Duncan, 87 years old, is still a devoted gym goer after several years. In fact, she is so devoted that she makes it to the gym three times a week. So, were you saying something about passing on your workout?! No? We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think so.

S

heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around the FM fitness scene long enough to see many gyms come and go. After working as Camp and Membership Secretary at the YMCA for 19 years, she was in a situation where it was time to leave. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided that I should probably find something to fill my time with other than just drinking coffee, and so I did.â&#x20AC;?

She recalls the different gyms she attended throughout the years. It all started out at a place in West Acres that is long gone by now, after that she joined a group that would go swimming every other day, this eventually led to a group of about 14 ladies who were devoted members at Great Shape Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health Club. After that club closed, Duncan and her group made Lady Wellness their home. Once Lady Wellness closed, the group parted ways. Some went to the new Sanford Family Wellness Center and others, including Duncan, settled in at Elements for Women. Elements for Women is Emâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home away from home. She is an instant celebrity from the moment she walks in. She attends her favorite fitness class, instructed by Monica Sunderland. Her celebrity status goes until the moment waves her goodbyes. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too long ago that she visited the

&NXJMMCFDFMFCSBUJOHIFSUIXFEEJOHBOOJWFSTBSZUIJT.BSDI

gym five days a week... thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right five days a week. There are probably not too many people her age who would devote that much time to the gym but she has the right priorities. Health being at the top of her list. More recently, she has had to cut back to three days a week as she recovers from her carpal tunnel surgery. While she could make this an excuse for skipping out on the gym, she still takes the time to go get her heart rate up.

7>

StrideĂ&#x20AC;!8679


Her motivation for getting to the gym? Two things. Her coffee dates, which follow her gym visits, with those women she has been working out with for years. She says that is her little reward for the hard work she does. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to eat and if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work out, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll spread out. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work out as hard as I used to but I still give it a whirl.â&#x20AC;? Granted, there are days that everyone canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beat that feeling of wanting to skip and so does Em. She says she reminds herself of the benefits and fights past the feeling of not wanting to venture out to the gym. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the social aspect. Some days when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really cold, I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go. But even on those cold days when I was younger, I would still motivate myself to go,â&#x20AC;? she recalled. The benefits of years of working out definitely shows as she stands up off the chair almost as quick as people younger than her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if you sit at home and feel sorry for yourself, sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have aches and pains. If you dwell on it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get crabby and no one will like you. My theory is to spend time with some younger people. They arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complaining all the time,â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forget yesterday, live for today and maybe tomorrow will be great.â&#x20AC;?

she laughs. Hats off to a woman who has her priorities straight and understands the true benefits of devoting time to health and fitness. She leaves us with some very knowledgeable advice and her genuine smile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stay active! Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel sorry for yourself. Get up and do something. Stay with younger people when you get old because they are not always crabby.â&#x20AC;?

Skull Candy headphones

If you’re like me, music is everything while you’re running. I love my Skull Candy headphones. The best part is you can get a pair relatively cheap.

Nutrition Your diet while training should be at least 55 percent carbohydrates and include a lot of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables. Eat lots of green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, carrots, whole grains, seafood and fortified breakfast cereals.

Motivation It’s hard to keep yourself motivated during those training runs. For me, running is an escape and helps me de-stress. You might be motivated by running with a group, finding that one special friend or simply showing the world that you can do it. Whatever your motivation is, find it.

Hydration You need to replenish the fluids that you’re losing. You should be drinking around 17 to 20 oz of water or a sports drink two to three hours before exercise and then 10 to 12 oz of water or sports drink right before exercise.

Questions? Feel free to e-mail me at andrew@fmstride.com with any questions you may have. Also, tell me your running and marathon stories. I’d love to hear them and there’s a chance we might put them in the magazine.

hen your budget says “stay home and cook,” try some speed scratch cooking methods in which you combine convenience foods with fresh foods.

Cook pasta or couscous (rice-shaped durum product). Top with microwaved spaghetti sauce from a jar and grated cheese, add a side salad and some fruit, and you have a healthy meal in short order. Make some chili and use the “planned-overs” to top baked potatoes or make a taco salad.

Open a jar of salsa and use it as an instant cooking sauce with chicken, ground beef or pork chops. Shop the salad bar vegetables for pre-sliced mushrooms, broccoli and cauliflower florets or chopped onions. Even though these may cost more, you can buy only the amount you need. Use to make stir-fry, omelets or grilled panini sandwiches.

ARE YOU A TIME SAVER in the kitchen? Which statements are true of you? Mark each with an “X.” I plan menus and write grocery lists so I have meal ideas and the food I need. I sometimes prepare portions of a meal in advance. I sometimes use leftovers as the basis for another meal. Other people in my household help with meal preparation and cleanup. I assemble equipment, cooking utensils and ingredients before I begin meal preparation.

I focus preparation efforts on one portion of the meal. For example, if the main course is time-consuming, I fix a simple vegetable or salad. I use time-saving equipment, such as slow cookers and microwave ovens. I use the one-pot method. For example, I add vegetables to pasta that is cooking.

Think about the items you marked and the ones you did not mark. All of these are time-saving tips.

QUEEN SANFORD HEALTH’S ROXANNE NEWMAN

OF

HEARTS By Andrew Jason Photography By J. Alan Paul Photography

Roxanne Newman is constantly cracking jokes, her smile is contagious and her demeanor is calm, cool and collected. Spend five minutes with her outside of the hospital and you would never think that she must make life or death decisions everyday at the drop of a hat. Dr. Roxanne Newman is a Cardiothoracic Surgeon at Sanford Health in Fargo. Since February is American Heart month, we decided to take a look at what it’s like to be a heart surgeon as we celebrate this queen of hearts.

StrideÀ!8679

O

n average, Newman does two to three heart surgeries every day. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two to three lives saved. Two to three families that will stay together. Two to three fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, brothers and sisters who wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to live without their loved one. The life of a heart surgeon is not an easy one. Newman is in the operating room by 7:30 a.m. most days and will usually be done with her surgeries by 2 p.m. She then must consult with patients, check charts and vitals and do a million other administerial aspects of the job. The Sanford Heart Department does approximately 450 heart surgeries every year. This doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give much free time for a heart surgeon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do surgeries daily,â&#x20AC;? Newman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In fact, our care has become so immediate, working weekends is fairly frequent tooâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;?

Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tips for healthy heart living 8IFOJUDPNFTUPGBUT JGJUTTPMJE BUSPPNUFNQFSBUVSF EPOUFBUJU "WPJEMBSETBOECVUUFSTBOEHPGPS PMJWFPSDBOPMBPJMJOTUFBE &BUNPSFÄ&#x2022;TIBOEMFTTSFENFBUT %POUTUBSWFZPVSTFMG&BUB CBMBODFEEJFUXJUIMPUTPGQSPUFJO "OZUIJOHJTHPPEJONPEFSBUJPO

As if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not stressful enough, a heart surgeonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end when they leave the hospital. Despite the fact that patients might not realize it, Newman is constantly checking up on patients and reading their charts. She also has to answer phones 24/7 and if the need arises; she must go to a patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bedside at anytime of the day for anyone who has made a turn for the worse. However, she is quick to point out that this is becoming less common as medicine advances. There are many aspects of the job Newman loves. She says the technical aspect is always â&#x20AC;&#x153;funâ&#x20AC;?. (As if having the life of a patient in your hands, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pressure enough.) A large portion of the job is also spent consulting patients. In fact, this aspect is becoming a much larger portion of the job as more and more healthcare options become available, which doctors must explain to all patients. However, this is one aspect of the job that Newman loves more than anything else. 1IPUPCZ.JDIBFM,4NJUIt4BOGPSE)FBMUI1IPUPHSBQIZ

A RADICAL IDEA to charge food by the calorie. In that case a Big Mac would be $550 while lettuce would cost nothing.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;My favorite is the post op when they come back a month after surgery,â&#x20AC;? Newman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone through this big operation, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize that they were going to get to that point and they finally feel better and say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how bad I was until I got better.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most rewarding.â&#x20AC;? Despite what TV might make you think, working in a hospital is not all sex, crazy surgeries or intricate love triangles. In fact, Newman compares it to another job thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just as stressful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much similarity at all (to hospital dramas). Those are meant to be interesting and appeal to the audience. To me our job is interesting. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to see personal fights between staff during procedures or somebody goofing off. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more like military than TV.â&#x20AC;?

Every doctor, no matter how good they are, will have to deal with the worst aspect of the job: the death of a patient. Although the goal of every doctor is to save lives, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inevitable theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not always going to succeed. Newman jokes that everyone is stamped with an expiration date like a milk carton, even if you keep the milk in the refrigerator, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eventually going to expire. Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job is to make that expiration date last as long as possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the biggest parts of a 1IPUPCZ.JDIBFM,4NJUIt4BOGPSE)FBMUI1IPUPHSBQIZ physicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job is also dealing with death and dying,â&#x20AC;? Newman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And keeping compassion with that and treating the family as much as the patient. To realize that this too is part of our job... People should be able to go with dignity. We should be able to relieve pain and suffering because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been our job as physicians. To help families through that is as much of our goal.â&#x20AC;? Although everyday is different when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a heart surgeon, one thing is certain. Each and everyday, Newman will literally have the life of a patient in her hands and more often than not, that person will walk away from that operating room.

e basically went from having to refer to Brazilian Jui Jitsu For Dummies to placing at an International Brazilian JiuJitsu Federation tournament. When he started, he knew two things about the sport, that it was similar to wrestling and it would be a great workout. Four and a half years later, Doug is still training, has incorporated the sport into his daily life and strictly follows a diet that allows him to participate at his full strength.
