Increible

pero

cierto

Me llamo Alexandra Díaz, me fascina la comida, bailar, cantar y llevo casi toda mi vida viviendo aquí en Georgia. Esta edición cero de la revista, ha sido una de los proyectos más difíciles y placenteros que he hecho en mi vida. El día que este proyecto se me ofreció iba a decir que no, porque no soy periodista y ni estudié comunicaciones. Yo tengo una Licenciatura en Español con Negocios Internacionales. Mi experiencia laboral, profesional es sobre calidad de servicio al cliente, manejo de personal, cuentas bancarias, números y reportes. Mi especialidad es todo lo anterior, pero mi pasión es planear eventos, mi gusto, mi meta, es hacer que cada persona se sienta especial, atendida y que jamás se le olvide el evento al que asistieron. Esta pasión por planear y por cuidar hasta el más pequeño detalle es lo que me motivó a aceptar este reto. Ahora, aquí estoy escribiendo mi primera carta como editora. Mi Amiga Magazine es el bebé que aún no tengo, esta revista cero, ha sido una labor de amor no sólo por parte mía, sino también por el gran equipo que día a día ha hecho esta edición realidad. Mi sueño es que usted disfrute esta revista, tanto como yo. Yo veo a Mi Amiga Magazine como una fiesta mensual, a la que quiero que usted me acompañe. Para mí como editora, todos sus comentarios son bienvenidos. Además, siempre estoy en busca de talento nuevo o de talento no tan nuevo que tenga una pasión por este medio y quieran contribuir con la revista. Comuníquese conmigo, vía correo electrónico o por carta (ver página 2). Por favor déjeme saber qué piensa de este bocadillo de revista. Ya estamos preparando el primer número y espero su comentario para hacer de esta revista lo que usted quiere leer. Me despido de la manera más atenta y con toda la atención que usted se merece. Hasta el próximo mes. Atentamente su Amiga,

Aunque muchos de nosotros aún estamos viviendo el verano, tenemos que empezar a pensar en el otoño e invierno. Está llegando la hora de limpiar el closet y hacer espacio para las próximas temporadas. Es difícil creer que más de la mitad del año ya pasó, especialmente porque la mayoría de nuestro verano fue opacado por la lluvia. Además de tener constante esa duda, de no saber si las prendas que escogiste ese día serían las más favorables para el clima. Bueno, la incertidumbre sigue para el resto del año, sólo nos queda prepararnos. Las buenas noticias son, que no porque la temperatura baje quiere decir que el color de nuestras vidas se va; ya que esta temporada de Otoño-Invierno 2013 llega llena de colores saturados, pero con ciertos colores opacos. Los colores de moda durante el verano han sido retocados con el fin de exaltar la elegancia y antigüedad, pero a la vez brillantes.

Tonos que logran resaltar nuestra imagen durante esos días grises que la temporada suele tener. Continúa el enfoque de usar colores solidos acompañados de divertidos estampados inspirados en el arte y la naturaleza, sin olvidar las infinitas combinaciones que simplemente nuestros accesorios pueden brindarnos. El uso de piel en guantes, zapatos y bolsos seguirá en tendencia ya que suelen dar un toque seductivo, clásico y a la vez juvenil que tal como hombres y mujeres pueden lucir. Al lado derecho del artículo se muestran los colores de tendencia y resaltantes de la temporada. Son diferentes tonos de gris, azul, verde, guinda y marrón y si los combinas con colores neutrales, te darán un look invernal pero divertido. Dejemos atrás los días en los que las nubes y la lluvia deciden nuestro sentido del humor. No olvidemos que solo Tú decides el color que lleva Tú VIDA.

Why Men

Disappear

After Sex:

A Man’s Perspective Por Benjamin O. Jenks

“Where do men disappear to after sex?” A good friend of mine, a girl, asked me this recently. She was devastated, and couldn’t understand where a guy had went. “I thought he really liked me,” she sobbed. They had slept together after a few dates, but now he was avoiding her calls and texts. And my friend kept coming back to this painful question, “Did I do something wrong?” Now, I’ve been writing dating advice for years, so this is not the first time I have heard of this situation. Often, my answer is something like: If he didn’t call back, then he wasn’t right for you. Move on and don’t blame yourself. I tell the guys this too, when a girl doesn’t return their call. But something about seeing my friend with tears running down her face, made me think a little deeper about the reasons men disappear. I thought about the reasons why I have disappeared (yes I’m a guy, and it is shamefully true). I considered the common reasons other men have shared for disappearing. And hoping it would help my friend, I shared with her 9 common reasons men disappear after sex. I was worried it might be too much information, but it seemed to help her. She had had no idea guy’s don’t call because they are worried about their “performance” (see reason #1). So, if you are struggling with a guy disappearing on you, I hope this list helps you too.

9 common reasons men disappear after sex: 1. He’s embarrassed. Men feel pressure to perform sexually, and the first time is the worst. He doesn’t know what you like or what you don’t like. Everything is new, and if he likes you, then he really wants to “rock your world.” But if something doesn’t “go up” at the right time, or if something else “comes out” too soon (if you know what I mean), then it can be really embarrassing. Most guys won’t want to think about what you will tell your friends. He might even assume you don’t want to see him again. No matter what you said, when you were with him. Maybe he will even avoid you, and never call you back. 2. He is a weak communicator. About 50% of guys report being “shy” in some situations. And calling a girl to say, “I don’t think it is going to work out between us” is one of those situations. It is even harder after having sex. For a shy guy, it is a lot easier not to call. 3. He doesn’t think he has to. He knows he should call, but he doesn’t feel obligated. Most guys aren’t sure what they are doing with women. The “dating rules” have gotten so complicated. This makes it easier to avoid doing what they know is the right thing to do. Often guys tell themselves, “A lot of girls have never called me back again, so…” Not right, but true. 4. He fell in love. Every day people fall in love. Every day people find someone who they are really compatible with. Maybe he just found the girl of his dreams? This happens more than you think. 5. He wasn’t into you. Most men will sleep with a larger selection of women, than they would agree to date exclusively. Maybe this has to do with the thousands of years, men spent evolving traits to effectively spread their genes. Or maybe it has to do with our cultural norms that say it is


okay for men to sleep with a lot of women. Either way, many men will sleep with women they are not interested in dating. And if he thinks you want a relationship, then he may not call you back to avoid this awkward situation. 6. The mystery is gone. Sexual tension needs mystery to survive. If you’ve shared too much about your life, you could have killed the mystery. I’m not saying to be a complete mime and avoid talking though. Here are few things to avoid mentioning at first: • Your insecurities • Details about past lovers • Reasons it didn’t work out with other men • Feelings you have for other guys Men and women both enjoy a challenge, and it is healthy to have boundaries about what you share. Wait, before sharing too much about yourself. 7. It is too soon. Like I said, men and women both enjoy a challenge. If you are too easy to get, he will assume that you are not very valuable. This is how the human mind works, according to psychological studies. Unfortunately, each guy has a different time frame in his mind about sex too. This means you can’t predict when the right time to sleep with him is, but you can focus on only sleeping with guys, when the time is right for you. 8. Not his type. Everyone has different tastes and preferences. Some people like classical music and others are into hip-hop. Being sexually compatible is important to most men and if he wasn’t feeling a connection, then he might not call back. 9. He’s a good liar. Some men lie to get what they want. “Wanting a relationship” is a common lie men tell, when starting to see a girl. Or maybe he exaggerated his feelings for you. In rarer cases, he may be dating someone else. Either way, you are lucky to be away from him.

Of course, understanding is not everything. After reading this, you probably won’t be fixed. But I hope you learned more about why men disappear. My girl friend wasn’t cured after our conversation, but it did help her heal up. She took it less personally, and when she was ready to date again, she used this information to be more selective about the guys she slept with. Hopefully this works for you too. Remember, it is not a personal thing with you. It is not that you are not good enough. The reason guys disappear are complex. Maybe it is based on social norms, his flaws, or he realized that you are not his type. Either way, he is gone. But there are plenty of guys who won’t disappear after sex.

Exercises

You Are

Doing

Wrong* Military press- Hold a dumbbell in each hand with palms facing forward and hands at shoulder height, extend arms up over your head and back down to shoulders.

Push-ups- Lay on the floor and place hands just wider than shoulder width apart and in line with shoulders. Get into a planked position on your toes. From this position bend elbows so your body goes down toward the floor and stops just before touching it. Blast back up to starting position by straightening your arms and repeat. Your head, shoulders, hips and ankles should stay in line with each other as you go down and up. Don’t forget to breathe in through your nose on the way down and out through your mouth on the way up.

Crunches- Lie on back and bend knees so feet are flat on floor. Making sure to keep your chin off your chest and not pulling up with your neck, place your hands on the side of your head and crunch up. Breathe out as you crunch up and breathe in on the way down.

Planks- While lying down on your stomach place your forearms on the floor and lift your body up onto your toes forming a plank. Contract your abs, glutes, quads and hamstrings; your shoulder and elbows should be at 90 degrees. Make sure you keep your head in the neutral position. Hold that position for 30 -60 seconds, the stronger you become the longer you will be able to hold the plank.

Alternating Lunges- While standing in athletic position (Chest up, shoulders back and down and firm abs) Step out with one leg forming a good heel plant of foot. Squat straight down making sure that your knee doesn’t pass beyond your toes and you push back through your heels. Come back to starting position and repeat with other leg.

Squats- Grab a set of dumbbells and stand with your feet shoulder width apart, toes slightly pointed out and arms to your side. Sit back like if you are going to sit on a chair making sure to keep your feet flat on the floor and your knees behind your toes. Squat down stopping before 90 degrees and stand back up squeezing your glute and leg muscles. Repeat for desired repetitions. Breathe in on the way down and out on the way up. Never hold your breath.
