nstead of pledging self-improvement right out of the gate this year, it occurred to me to take some time to reflect on my accomplishments this past year. I know that may sound like any one of the following: cheesy, complicated, or perhaps too time consuming for the Kentucky-Derby-paced lives we lead. But hear me out. When I read an email recently that suggested we do this every year just as we take part in the tradition of making resolutions – I thought to myself, “Yes, instead of thinking of all our shortcomings first…how about we allow ourselves to take credit where credit is due for a change.” And just so we’re clear, an accomplishment does not necessitate you climb Mt. Everest or open an animal shelter. In my dictionary (this is where relativity comes into play), a triumph is anything you’ve done that has resulted in a positive outcome. I let my mind wander back and came up with a list of personal kudos. It felt good; better than thinking about all that I’ve yet to accomplish. Here’s one achievement from my notes: I workout now...and it’s wonderful! A year prior, a kettle ball was a very foreign object. I could easily dwell on the negative and say, “I should work out more often.” But not this year, I’m doing something new, I’m keeping balance on the brain (and internal criticism to a minimum.) Something else novel to me – a detox diet. I’ve had a few friends over the years participate in a myriad of so-called “cleansing” eating regimes, some involving only cayenne pepper, lemon juice and water. That certainly can’t be safe...so which ones are? Kourtney Jason clears up the issue in “Coming Clean: The Skinny on 5 Detox Diets” that includes the most popular diets and notes from local doctors on both their effectiveness and safety. To round out this issue – in which we celebrate health in the new year – Jenn Thornton shares some secrets to success for streamlining your fitness goals in “Your Best Body: Fitness and Food Tailored to You.” It’s simple: find your body type and follow the rules meant for your figure – whether you’re shaped like a fruit or a stick, feel and look better with these customized exercises and foods...just a few pages away. Start 2013 with something new... and your old friend, Style! — Desiree

oseville resident Julie Hirota got her start in the arts more than a decade ago, after leaving a hightech job in mechanical engineering to concentrate on raising her two children. In her spare time she started sewing quilts, and over the next few years found herself showing her work at festivals and lecturing on the textile arts more and more. After writing a book on quilting, Hirota created a successful line of handbags and women’s accessories, and the business expertise she gained eventually led her to a position as director for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training.

Q: Best words of wisdom you’ve received? A: “Sometimes you need to sit back and watch the movie; don’t always be the director.”

season’s eatings

PlacerGROWN and Foothill Farmers’ Market WHAT’S IN SEASON NOW: MEYER LEMONS! If you like the tang of lemons but not the pucker, then Meyer lemons are for you. With sweeter juice, a thinner peel, less acid and a more floral scent (and taste) than other lemon varieties, Meyers are great to use when cooking. Thankfully, we’re at the peak of Meyer lemon season in Placer County.

DID YOU KNOW? The Meyer lemon is believed to be a hybrid between a conventional lemon and either a mandarin or an orange. Like many citrus fruits, the Meyer lemon originated in China. In 1908, agricultural explorer Frank Nicholas Meyer of the U.S. Department of Agriculture discovered the fruit on one of his exploratory trips to China. The Meyer lemon has since made its way to farms in California, including Placer County. Meyer lemons can be purchased at Placer County farmers’ markets held year-round, including the Saturday 14 stylemg.com - January 2013

ments. You don’t have to own a home or be married – neither have anything to do with being a good parent to a child in need. However, there are several requirements mandated by state regulations, which are intended to ensure a child will be in a safe, healthy environment. Foster/adoptive parents will be asked to show: • Adequate income to meet the family’s needs • Stable housing • Adequate bed space (no more than two children of the same gender per bedroom, and each must have his/her own bed) • Physical and mental health in good standing that will allow the adult to properly care for a child California also requires a criminal background and child abuse registry check for each applicant. Lilliput is primarily concerned that children are placed in safe and nurturing environments where their developmental, physical and emotional needs will be met. — Elizabeth Morabito Community Relations Coordinator Lilliput Children’s Services 8391 Auburn Boulevard Citrus Heights 916-923-5444, lilliput.org

market in Auburn, and on Tuesdays at the Fountains at Roseville. They are also sold at many local farms in Granite Bay, Loomis, Newcastle, Lincoln, Penryn and Auburn.

SELECTION AND STORAGE: Choose heavier Meyer lemons as opposed to lighter ones, as it’s an indication of higher juice content. Store the fruit in a plastic storage bag to prevent them from losing moisture. Place the lemons in a crisper to store them for up to four weeks; the cold from the refrigerator slows the enzyme reactions that cause ripening. For the recipe to make Meyer Lemon Schaum Torte, visit stylemg.com. For more information about PlacerGROWN and the Foothill Farmers’ Market Association, visit placergrown.org and foothillfarmersmarket.com. — Julie Peterson

the10 spot New Year, New You It’s 2013…meaning the Mayans were wrong! To celebrate the feat, Style shares tips to help you kick off the new year the healthy way. 1. Reset your internal sleep clock by getting eight hours for six weeks straight. You’ll “program” a healthy new sleep routine and boost your metabolism. 2. Visit a local café or take a different route to work. The brain craves novelty and little changes to your daily routine can make you feel younger. 3. Start your meals with fruits and vegetables. Loading up on vitamins and antioxidants will give you that refreshed feeling. 4. Try a healthy happy hour. Instead of hitting up a bar, reconnect with friends by taking a walk or hitting the gym.

5. Not motivated to go to the gym? Prepare the night before by laying out your workout clothing, sneakers and gym membership ID. Visible cues will inspire you to get your behind in motion. 6. Big dishes and utensils result in big trouble for your waistline. Join the Small Plate Movement Challenge (smallplatemovement.org) by eating off a 9- to 10-inch plate for your largest meal of the day for one month. 7. Avoid eating food from its original container. By doing so, you fail to see how much you’re actually eating. 8. Quit smoking – for your health, your loved ones and the planet. 9. Hold the salt. Excess sodium means bloat, high blood pressure and the risk of developing other cardiovascular diseases. To start, curb your intake of processed foods and pay attention to nutritional labels. 10. Slather on sunscreen. Harmful UVA and UVB rays can cause brown spots, make wrinkles appear before their time and…oh yeah, skin cancer. Apply a broad-spectrum SPF 30 daily. — Jamila B. Khan

Mr. Pickle’s

uch to t h e relief of Granite Bay sandwich connoisseurs, Mr. Pickle’s Douglas location has reopened, and is now under new ownership and management. Silly me, I had never been to a single one of the franchise’s localities. That situation has since been remedied. Not only did the staff stay open 20 minutes after their closing time on a rainy Tuesday to craft my sub, they even had everything I require of a sandwich shop – namely all of the ingredients to create a Turkey, Avocado and Cranberry Sandwich with a mass of veggies on a whole wheat roll. I was at first a skeptical foodie, but

quickly found that the produce was fresh, meat piled on thickly, avocado buttery and the cranberry sweetly tart. Even the roll was mercifully soft! These days it seems that many sandwich shops treat patrons with a cattle-herding mentality. Not at Mr. Pickle’s. They graciously treated me with a relish (and a couple of pickles) that was a refreshing departure from typical fast food sandwich shops. Plus, you get a free cookie with purchase. What could be better than that? Mr. Pickle’s Sandwich Shop, 4060 Douglas Boulevard, Granite Bay. 916-772-1095, mrpicklesinc.com. — Kelly Soderlund January 2013 - stylemg.com 15

Sandinista! – The Clash The Clash’s 1980 triple album is a bit of a punch line among fans – a bizarre everything-but-the-kitchen-sink follow-up to London Calling, which many considered Clash perfection. Featuring everything from children’s choirs and reggae to dub and rap, the scale of Sandinista! is daunting, but there are so many gems – “Police on my Back,” “Charlie Don’t Surf” and “Magnificent Seven.”

Longitude: The True Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time by Dava Sobel Until the 18th century, the inability to accurately calculate longitude took a toxic toll on sea expedition – until the invention of the chronometer, which changed sea travel and exploration completely. Longitude tells the fascinating story of the chronometer’s inventor, John Harrison, the only one to propose a mechanical solution to a matter of life and death.

Roman Holiday Just to say the names Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn is to define “classic,” so when the two pair up for a fun Vespa-filled adventure, it could only be pure magic. Directed by the Oscars’ most-nominated director, William Wyler, Roman Holiday first introduced the effervescent and beautiful Hepburn to movie-going audiences, and began the love affair that still continues today.

NOW: ¡Tré! – Green Day Following up from the earlier releases of ¡Uno! and ¡Dos!, ¡Tré! completes Green Day’s most ambitious musical undertaking: an epic 37-song trilogy. From Dookie-era fast-burn punk to the lyrical pop-punk of recent years, as well as newer orchestral stadium epics, the trilogy highlights the evolution of a small punk trio from Berkeley to a Broadway show, multi-Grammy powerhouse…proving their rock ‘n’ roll heart still beats harder than ever.

NOW: The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies? by Jared Diamond Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Guns, Germs, and Steel and Collapse, takes another enlightening look at ancient civilization. With a more personal focus, Diamond draws upon his extensive fieldwork in the Pacific Islands, and other regions, to illustrate that modern and ancient civilizations are not that far apart.

NOW: To Rome with Love Dovetailing onto the critical success of Midnight in Paris, Woody Allen’s world travelogue continues with what some fans and critics are saying is one of his funniest recent movies. To Rome with Love is a rollicking love story to the city of Rome, boasting an all-star ensemble cast featuring Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penelope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page and of course Woody himself.

FLICKS WITH STYLE – The Last Stand Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in his first lead role since 2003’s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. In his newest action comedy, Schwarzenegger is a small-town sheriff who takes on a drug cartel.

ward-winning photographer and fine artist Vincent DiLeo describes himself as “once a kid with a box camera in my hand [and] now a man with no tan.” He found his passion for photography by peering through the lens of his mother’s Kodak Brownie at age 16. “I really love taking photos,” DiLeo admits. While still in high school, he was hired by his hometown newspaper in New Jersey, the Roxbury News Journal, to photograph nearly everything – from homecoming queens to house fires. Through these early experiences, this self-taught professional began honing his craft. Photography has been the common thread in his long and successful career. After a stint in the Air Force and working as a commercial/fashion photographer, he turned his talent to fine arts and now focuses on what he describes as a fusion

between photos and computer-manipulated images. “In each piece of work,” DiLeo explains, “I rely on the images and my imagination.” This new art form is just now emerging here in the U.S. but is huge in Europe. Surrealist Salvador Dali, one of DiLeo’s inspirations, once said, “Painting is an infinitely minute part of my personality.” DiLeo feels the same about his work. “Each photo is very personal for me...I know each image and the techniques I used to make it.” Currently, the artist is busy on his new project, a series of works entitled Time, based on the concept that time flies by us. His many years taking news, fashion and now fine art photography, has inspired DiLeo to say, “The consistent thing about my photography is it is continually evolving.” DiLeo was overwhelmed by the constant news coverage of the BP oil

spill in the Gulf of Mexico; after numerous dreams about the incident, he took a friend’s advice and started putting images from his dreams onto canvas. “This began my quest to create photographs from my dreams,” DiLeo says. His work has been featured locally at Roseville’s Blue Line Gallery and other Placer County locations; as well, he donated works to KVIE for their yearly art auction fundraiser. You can also view his work during the Placer Arts Studio Tours. “It’s very important to me to be involved in the local art community,” DiLeo shares. Another huge influence for him is his wife and fellow artist, Paula DiLeo. Married more than 20 years, the couple shares a home in Auburn where there’s plenty of room for both to work in their individual studios. Her mixed media work is more whimsical, focusing on owls, cats, flowers and other “happy” images that she’s compelled to create. “It’s just something I have to do,” she admits. The couple has a lot in common and inspires each other and their individual works. DiLeo confides, “We share ideas and inspiration.”

time out 5 Discipline Mistakes & Simple Solutions

1. KID BRAIN ≠ ADULT BRAIN One mistake parents make is assuming their kids think the same way they do, which is not the case, says Fay Catlett Sady, L.C.S.W., M.P.H., a clinical social worker and therapist based in Placerville. She explains kids operate on emotion and what they want right now, while adult brains are about planning and thinking ahead.

SIMPLE SOLUTION: Parents should make a list of the top behavior problems they have with their child, along with agreed upon consequences. “The same behavior equals the same consequences; therefore, it’s predicable and consistent,” Dr. Almont says.

SIMPLE SOLUTION: Sady says to know the difference and talk to your child in their “feel language” – “I know that’s how you feel, I know that’s what you want” – but as a parent, help them learn the consequences of their potential actions, such as not studying for a test.

3. BE A PARENT, NOT A FRIEND

2. INCONSISTENCY

SIMPLE SOLUTION: According to Sady, if you want your child to grow up as a happy and responsible adult, then they have to learn there are limits and rules in life. “Allowing kids to break rules will not help them become responsible adults,” she adds.

22 stylemg.com - January 2013

Dr. Almont says for effective discipline, you have to have a good balance between positive attention and appropriate discipline with clear consequences. “Positive attention is the glue that makes the discipline work,” she adds.

by Corrie Pelc cal psychologist and founder and director of the Monarch Center in Roseville.

Sometimes parents will be inconsistent in their discipline by allowing their mood or other factors to set a consequence, rather than what the actual behavior of the child was, says Dr. Tanda Almont, a licensed clini-

4. BE BALANCED

Another mistake Sady sees are parents focusing on being their child’s friend rather than their parent. And by focusing on a friendship rather than parenting, Sady says parents are more inclined to give in on rules because they want their child to like them.

SIMPLE SOLUTION: Praise the admirable behaviors that tend to go unnoticed, Dr. Almont says. For example, if your child is sitting quietly in their chair, tell them how happy it makes you, “because if they’re not sitting quietly in their chair, you are going to say something,” she explains.

5. CHILD SEE, CHILD DO Lastly, Sady says parents sometimes forget their children will learn by what they see their parents do. “Kids will handle problems like you do, they’ll handle anything like you do...they are mimicking and copying you, and what you do is what they will learn,” she explains. SIMPLE SOLUTION: Instead of yelling, screaming and using aggression to get what you want from your kids, Sady says to use respect and firmness in a caring manner, and don’t be surprised when your kids respond in a similar manner to you. “It may take some time, but it will happen – kids behave the way they’re taught to,” she says.

earing a woman refer to the Mariposa Hospitality House – the primary training site of the Citrus Heights-based nonprofit, Glass Slipper – as her “dream home” (one that provided the now volunteer with an opportunity for self-improvement as a girl, and a place that she hopes will one day host her nuptials) is the fondest memory of the organization’s director, D. Jacqueline Guzman. “The house is lovely,” Guzman confesses, “but the fact that she envisions us in her life is what touched my heart.” Fitting, you might say, as the Glass Slipper – run 100 percent by volunteers – is all about touching hearts and transforming lives. Since its inception in 1997, the nonprofit’s mission is “to inspire women and girls to discover their true identity in a not-so-fairy-tale world and empower them for a brighter future.” The organization believes that every girl should have the opportunity to discover her inherent value and full potential. This belief drives Glass Slipper’s wide, purpose-driven scope of services: a comprehensive slate of enrichment activities, self-development programs, life skills and coaching that represents the nonprofit’s commitment to moving at-risk girls ages

12-18 in foster care toward self-sufficiency. The results are on display at Mariposa Hospitality House, which operates a culinary program while offering merchandising and customer service training through the IMAGE Boutique. Most crucially, perhaps, is that Mariposa provides positive role modeling in an on-the-job setting the organization calls “the ideal learning laboratory.” Spanish for butterfly, “Mariposa” signifies Glass Slipper’s emphasis on internal and external transformation. Emotionally, programs address core issues related to restoring one’s self-esteem. In support is a beauty salon that supplies complimentary, confidence-boosting cosmetology services. Particularly significant to the overall success of the nonprofit is arguably its very backbone: mentorship. “As a gender-specific organization, we understand girls,” Guzman explains. “We know having someone to trust and share life with is critical. So, we serve as positive role models who genuinely care about their future… Mentoring has always been a key part of our program and is the glue that holds everything together.” The arrival of 2013 finds Glass Slipper expanding its reach.

the IMAGE Academy, a self-development program at multiple community locations, the nonprofit will roll out an after-school program in the Sacramento City Unified School District this month. In March, plans call to rebuild Mariposa Hospitality House’s old garage; upon completion, the new structure will boast a commercial kitchen and more than double the square footage to expand its culinary training, as well as a great-room concept with seating for more than 40 girls at dinner. Replications of Mariposa Hospitality House, including a residential housing component (transitional housing) for young women aged 18-24 emancipated from the foster care system in multiple communities, is also in the works. The Glass Slipper’s ambitions are impressive, but no more so than its ultimate goal. “Our hope,” Guzman says, “is to create beautiful memories of their youth, and to be in their lives [through] adulthood.”

from soulmates to roommates Rekindle the Romance by Dr. Debra Moore

I

f your relationship seems more platonic than passionate these days, you’re not alone. Follow Dr. Deb’s guide below to rekindle the flame.

HE SAID: “I haven’t brought it up directly but she knows how I feel. She can tell when I’m in the mood, and she always has an excuse.”

HE SAID: “I’ve been patient, but I’m getting really frustrated! Our love life has gone from being exciting to nonexistent. We used to spend hours in bed cuddling and making love; I can’t remember the last time that happened!”

DR. DEB SAYS: So the two of you

DR. DEB SAYS: Have you talked about what is going on? What have you tried so far to bring back the passion?

have the dance down pat – you come on to her, she backs off, you pout or become resentful, and she waits for it to blow over. Nothing gets discussed, you both feel more distant, and the odds of regaining intimacy go down another notch.

SHE SAID: “That’s about it. I can tell he’s mad, but there are so many other things on my mind, and honestly, I hate when he expects me to feel lovey-dovey at the drop of a hat.”

DR. DEB SAYS: So his style of approach is making things worse. But let me ask you – would you like to find that spark again, that desire, and the closeness that came with it?

SHE SAID: “Of course I would. I’m just not sure where it went. And to be honest, that scares me. What if we’re just meant to be roommates?” DR. DEB SAYS: Whoa, that’s a big jump. It’s not uncommon to get into patterns like yours – avoiding, resenting and falling into sexual doldrums, until eventually convincing yourself it’s okay. But relationships can end unnecessarily when this happens.

DR. DEB’S RECOMMENDATIONS: We know most relationships experience a decrease in 26 stylemg.com - January 2013

passion and sexual frequency over time. I believe there are four common reasons. 1. We’re biologically designed to feel tons of passion when a relationship starts. Attachment chemicals like oxytocin rise, especially for women; over time, their levels decrease. 2. We’re programmed to crave novelty, so any experience that repeats itself has the potential to bore us. Routine sex is a prime candidate. 3. If one of you has been traumatized in previous relationships – either emotionally, physically, sexually intimidated or abused (either as an adult, child or teen) – passion can suddenly plummet. There’s definitely still hope for a rewarding love life, but seek professional guidance. 4. Life gets in the way. Children, new financial commitments and more demanding jobs all take their toll. Too many people rush around late into the evening and then fall into bed exhausted, thus destroying intimacy and sex lives.

SO WHAT’S A COUPLE TO DO? • Get real. Acknowledge to each other that your love life has slipped. • Remember the good times together and let each other know you want more of them. • Get into counseling (one or both of you) if you realize your avoidance or anxiety about intimacy or sex has deeper roots. • Introduce some novelty into your lovemaking – it doesn’t have to be anything major. Novelty and play are first cousins. Have fun! • Do you find yourself claiming, “We don’t have time for a love life”? Slow down and simplify. (And don’t use your kids as an excuse; realize they deserve parents who have a life – and love life – too!)

ictoria and Ryan Rawles love the show House Crashers on the DIY Network and frequently talked about how cool it would be to get “crashed.” Fortune smiled on them when the show’s host, Josh Temple, caught sight of them in the Lowe’s parking lot. “I think everyone spotted them,” Temple remembers. “That’s one handsome couple!” Temple couldn’t say the same for the couple’s outdated kitchen. Confined and dark with broken countertops and cabinets and appliances that didn’t work, not to mention a big hole in the floor, this was a recipe for renovation. The couple expressed to Temple that a more modern, functional kitchen was the way to go. “We were really hoping for a design that opened up the space and for lighting to brighten it as well,” Victoria shares. “We really want to get the design right for the homeowner,” Temple explains. “We ask them tons of questions. Ryan and Victoria had great, very specific ideas. In this particular case, it wasn’t that hard to match.” They brought in designer Susan Prang to take on the task. Being a DIY program, the Rawles were 100-percent involved in the demolition and rebuilding. “They worked hard, never complained, and were exceptional with tools,” Temple says. “Plus, they both gave me back as much crap as I gave them.” With a home in Historic Folsom that dates back to the 1800s, you can imagine the hardwood flooring had seen better days. After replacing the scratched, lightcolored old floor with a new grayish-ash hardwood, the kitchen began to shape up beautifully. A wall between the kitchen and living room was knocked out to really open up the space, while the addition of a skylight in the ceiling brightened up the room as well. An island in the center of the kitchen was constructed from original siding off the house, and concrete countertops gave the room additional industrial flair. “There were so many dynamic elements but it remained cohesive as a kitchen design,” Temple says. “It exceeded my expectations, and I think it exceeded Ryan and Victoria’s [expectations] as well.”

Accentuating the positive is sometimes easier said than done, especially when it comes to accepting your body type. Whether you’ve been blessed (or cursed) with curves or a ballerinaesque body (i.e. long and lean) – our guide takes you through the four most common figures and offers fitness and food plans for each; because when it comes to exercising and eating, one size doesn’t always fit all.

curvy

Curvy THE SHAPE Your body is naturally bigger in the breasts and hips than the waist, so aim for allover muscle tone and give arms and legs a good going over – just like the Queen of Curves, Beyoncé. THE WORKOUT “Having more curves in a particular area does not mean we cannot work on toning those specific areas through strength training,” says Noelle Ritter, certified athletic trainer with Roseville Health and Wellness Center (RHWC). “Pair strength work with low [to] moderate intensity cardio for 30 minutes to boost metabolism and burn fat.” *Perform each exercise three to four times a week for results. Moderate exercises as needed. Exercise: Swing Squat with Kettle Ball Keep legs wide enough to swing a weight between them, then, using a 10-pound kettle ball or weights, do three sets of 10 reps. Exercise: Reverse Lunge Alternating Using your own body weight, do two sets of 10 reps (or, with 5-10 pound weights at your side, two sets of 15 reps).

Exercise: Plank with Single Leg Climb Start in plank position, bend knee up toward chest (like you are climbing), then fully extend leg back (glute extension); repeat using your own body weight one leg at a time for 10 reps on each side. Exercise: Lunge Stance with Single Arm Row Using your own body weight and tubing, row as you stand. Complete two sets of 10 reps (if using cable equipment, use 10-20 pounds to complete two sets of 15 reps). Exercise: Side-Lying Donkey Kick Keep top knee pulled into the chest, then kick out with the heel. Using your own body weight, do two sets of 10 reps on each side, or two sets of 15 reps, alternating kicks slightly forward and slightly behind.

THE EATING PLAN Shed pounds: “Focus on complex carbs (whole grains, quinoa, legumes) and lean proteins (turkey, eggs, chicken breast), with minimal fats (a handful of nuts, healthy oils when making your own salad dressings),” Ritter advises. “Seek to stay ‘full’ from hearty grains and fiber from fruits and veggies.” Stay trim: Steer clear of processed and salty foods and, when possible, animal fat.

THE SHAPE

You’re a “bombshell” body type that, proportionally, is wider on the bottom, smaller on top. (But don’t worry, Marilyn Monroe was too.) THE WORKOUT “Alternating days of circuit training and cardiovascular training is ideal for the pear-shaped body type,” says Lisa Marrero, general manager of RHWC. Circuits should combine strength training and fat burning simultaneously and be done five days a week. Can’t get outside? “Try cardio equipment like the stationary bike, treadmill or stair stepper,” Marrero adds, or her workout below. *Perform one weighted exercise per body part for one set of 15 reps. Include 30 to 60 seconds of cardiovascular exercise (jumping rope, step-ups or running) after each set. Rotate through the exercises in the circuit for 40 minutes. Moderate exercises as needed. Exercise: Push-ups Start by doing push-ups on your knees or at an incline, using support if necessary. Exercise: Bicep Curls & Shoulder Press Combination Start with a bicep curl. Hold a dumbbell in each hand, with palms facing forward, arms at your sides. Bend elbows to bring weights up to shoulders. Turn hands so palms face for-

ward again, push up and straighten arms above the head. Lower hands back down to shoulders, rotate palms toward you, and lower hands back down. Exercise: Tricep Dips With fingers overlapping the edge of a bench (buttocks in front of it), walk your feet forward until you can lower your hips straight down in front of the bench. Stop when shoulders are even with elbows, then press the arms up and return to the starting position. Exercise: Squats With feet wider than hip-width apart, toes turned slightly out and arms at your sides, slowly bend knees, pushing the butt and hips out and down behind you. (Always keep head and shoulders aligned over the knees and the knees over the ankles.) Come down until your thighs are parallel to the ground. As you lower, raise your arms up and in front of you no higher than parallel to the ground. Straighten the legs to come up, and lower your arms to your side. Exercise: Crunches Lying on your back, knees bent at a 90-degree angle, place your hands on each side of your head, without interlocking your fingers. Slowly curl the shoulders toward the pelvis, raising shoulders approximately four inches off the floor. Contract abs and exhale on the way up. Hold the contraction for one second and inhale as you lower yourself.

THE EATING PLAN Shed pounds: Consume an array of low-fat proteins (lean cuts of steak, whitefish, skinless chicken breasts and tuna) and complex carbohydrates (fresh vegetables, fruits and whole grains). Incorporate a small amount of healthy fats (natural peanut butter, olive oil). Stay trim: Avoid foods high in saturated fats and refined sugars (typically found in fast food and baked goods).

Athletic THE SHAPE

Narrow hips, broad shoulders, and a strong physique mark the athletic body type. (Hello, Jessica Biel!) THE WORKOUT “Very few people fit exclusively into one body type,” says Lisa Packheiser, fitness director of Spare Time Clubs. ”Many of us are a blend of at least two types.” Sculpting the glutes is a good way to give this area shape. Thicker-waisted athletic types should focus on tightening the tummy. Packheiser advocates interval training as a “better cardio option because it tends to burn more overall calories.” *Do two sets of 14-20 reps of the following exercises, three to four days per week. Moderate exercises as needed. Exercise: Stability Ball Pass Lying on your back, ball in your hands, reach up to a “V” position, with your legs and your feet meeting in the middle; pass the ball from hands to feet. Do 10 to 15 reps. Exercise: Reverse Lunges Using a medicine ball (or any light weight of 2-8 pounds), step backwards with the right leg, while simultaneously reaching the weight up and over your head to the left. Return to the starting position and repeat with the left leg while reaching right.

Exercise: Push-Ups with Side Knee Tucks Whether on the floor for a straight leg push-up or at an angle with hands on a bench, perform a push-up followed by a side knee tuck. Lift your left leg just off of the ground and bring your knee toward your left elbow. Repeat on the right side. Exercise: Sumo Squats Standing with your legs wide and your toes slightly pointed outward with weight in your hands ( 8 -1 5 p o u n d s) , squat down to 90 degrees with your knees pointing in the same direction as your toes. Squeeze your glutes and inner thighs as you come back up to a full standing position. Exercise: Stability Ball Knee Tucks In a push-up position with your legs on the stability ball, pull knees in toward the chest and return to the starting position.

THE EATING PLAN Shed pounds: “Eat smaller, more frequent meals to bump up your metabolism, and cut out junk food and sweets from your diet to prevent quick weight gain,” Packheiser recommends. Stay trim: Low-calorie foods and fresh veggies are key for athletic-shape weight loss. Include complex carbohydrates in small portions to keep calories down.

THE SHAPE

Refuse to take “stick figure” literally – what you lack in curves, you make up for in versatility. (Is there nothing Cameron Diaz can’t wear? She’s your type, too.) Like guys, boyish builds can form a little potbelly, but building muscle can be tough. THE WORKOUT Focus on giving more shape to your silhouette. Increase weight training to add lean muscle mass (especially to a curve-less backside), build up the shoulders for a stronger looking physique, and give love to the abs and obliques for a cinchedlooking waist. *Do the following exercises in a circuit two to three times, with no rest in between, three times a week. Perform workout four to five times per week. Moderate exercises as necessary. Exercise: Push-Ups Using your own body weight and, if necessary, a support (bench, stairs, stability balls, stacked steps, knees) do 10-12 push-ups per circuit. Exercise: Squat and Overhead Press Tighten your glutes, shoulders and abs with this allover toner. With a dumbbell in each hand and elbows bent in front of your torso, stand with your feet in a

wide stance, toes pointed out. Bend your knees and squat down, being careful not to extend the knees over toes. Come back up and repeat. Exercise: Stability Ball Abs With your back flat on the floor, arms at your side, legs at 90 degrees with calves on a stability ball, lift your head and shoulders off the floor, while simultaneously bringing arms up and pulsing them while breathing. Count to 100. Exercise: Carving Curl Lie flat facing the floor with head resting on folded arms and a dumbbell tucked behind a bent knee. Keep the foot flexed and slowly lift the bent leg about three to five inches off the floor; lower and repeat. Do 20 reps on both sides. Exercise: Swaying Bridge Lie flat on the floor with feet slightly larger than shoulder-width apart (arms at your sides, heels on the floor, knees bent). Lift the hips until a line forms from rib cage to knees (your bra line stays on the ground). While hips are raised, sway from side to side then lower. Do 10-12 reps.

THE EATING PLAN Shed pounds: Although naturally more slim, fight flab (especially near the tummy area) and keep bloat at bay by eating fresh veggies, leafy greens (kale and Swiss chard), lean meats and whole grains. Stay trim: Stay away from refined sugars and foods high in saturated fats. Snack on superfoods like pumpkin seeds and immunity-boosting fruits like kiwi.

coming clean The Skinny on 5 Detox Diets by Kourtney Jason

38 stylemg.com - January 2013

T

hanks to celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyoncé and Anne Hathaway endorsing various cleanses, detox diets have never been more popular. “The detox industry is huge,” says Harmony Boeh, R.D., with Roseville Health and Wellness Center. “It made more than $60 billion in 2011.” Outside of the celebrity push, cleanses and detox programs can be quite appealing. Individuals turn to the quick and temporary diet as a way to increase energy levels and to “reset” their bodies after regular exposure to environmental toxins (medications, pesticides, pollution) and from their typical diet (processed foods, sugars, alcohol, caffeine). “Being able to break any addiction [to caffeine, alcohol, sugar] is empowering,” Boeh says. Dr. Anita M. Larrow, N.D., with Revolutions Natural Medical Solutions in Folsom, agrees. “Some people will do it as a spiritual or mental cleanse. Others will do it with the change of season, to jump-start a weight loss plan, or to break an addiction. Cleansing and detoxing takes you out of your daily eating routine so you can break those habits.” But before you try a detox diet or cleanse, both Boeh and Larrow strongly advise consulting a doctor to see if it’s the right choice for you. “For the generally healthy population, a three-day cleanse isn’t likely to do much harm or lead to lasting health problems, and may provide motivation for people looking to change to a healthier diet afterwards,” Boeh says, adding that children, teenagers, pregnant or nursing women, and seniors are not advised to detox/cleanse. As with most fad diets, there is a lack of scientific evidence to support their adoption. “Science has not proven any benefit to a detox or cleanse diet,” says Kirsten Ransbury, R.D., with Kaiser Permanente Roseville Medical Center. “There is a multi-billion dollar industry selling books and products which claim many things that are unproven. This is very much a buyer-beware situation.” Detox diets are extremely low calorie and primarily liquid diets promoted to clear out the colon and help the body eliminate toxins. “None of them are recommended since they are nutritionally inadequate, can upset blood sugars, lead to muscle and water loss (dehydration), diarrhea or frequent loose stools, reduced immunity, headaches, irritability and a slower metabolism, which makes regaining any weight lost happen very quickly when the diet is done,” Ransbury explains. “The human body is designed to rid itself of toxins. The liver, kidneys, lungs and skin do a beautiful job of this already.” Like anything, the answer to whether a detox diet can be beneficial to you depends on what you and your doctor decide is best. Ransbury and Boeh summarize seven of the most popular diets, explaining the pros and cons of each.


1

THE MASTER CLEANSE

Also known as the lemonade diet, the Master Cleanse is a monodiet (where you only consume one mixture) designed to work with your body’s existing cleansing and detoxifying processes. It’s typically done for 10 days. “The Master Cleanse is basically a starvation diet, where you are allowed to drink a mixture of lemon juice with maple syrup, water and cayenne pepper. You can also drink salt water and a laxative tea,” Ransbury says. Pros: According to the book The Complete Master Cleanse by Tom Woloshyn, benefits include: better sleep, more energy, clarity of mind, greater flexibility, weight loss, freedom from addictions, increased strength, reduced swelling and pain, less hair loss, improved skin complexion, reduced allergies and more. Ransbury, however, states this diet has no benefits. Cons: “It may lead to muscle breakdown, vitamin deficiencies, weakened immune system, headaches, fatigue and frequent loose stools,” she says.

GREEN SMOOTHIE DETOX DIET This diet plan involves blending fruits and vegetables into smoothies. “It provides about 15 servings of fruits and veggies a day,” Ransbury says, adding that there are different options as far as how many days the plan can be followed. Allowed foods include avocado, brewer’s yeast, bee pollen, chia seeds, herbs, raw chocolate, yogurt, coconut, flaxseed oil, goji berries, wheat germ, maple syrup, stevia and honey. Pros: Lots of fiber and may be an easy way for people to consume more fruits and veggies, Ransbury says. Cons: “People may experience headaches and fatigue while adjusting to the elimination of many foods,” she says. “This diet does not provide suggestions on what to eat other than a quart of green smoothies each day, so it may be low in vitamin B12, zinc, vitamin D and selenium.”

MARTHA’S VINEYARD DETOX DIET

Consisting of 21 days of liquids (primarily vegetable juices and soups, berry drinks and herbal teas), this diet requires nutritional supplements – vitamins, digestive enzymes and aloe vera juice – which can be purchased from the diet plan’s Web site and cost upwards of $200. Ransbury says the diet is only about 1,000 calories per day, and caffeine and alcohol are prohibited. After 21 days, additional foods like protein powder, soymilk, yogurt and salmon are added, followed by other nutritious foods. Pros: “There are a lot of fruits and vegetables – about 21 servings a day – but this is a blessing and a curse since it can lead to many unexpected trips to the bathroom,” Ransbury says. Cons: The diet doesn’t provide enough protein to maintain your muscles or immune system, offering only about 20 grams per day. “People will lose weight but it will be primarily water and muscle,” she says. “This type of weight loss is quickly regained, but the muscle has to be rebuilt with exercise.” Essential fat is also lacking from the diet. And with sudden stops to alcohol, caffeine and sugar consumption, withdrawal symptoms may occur. January 2013 - stylemg.com 39

FRESH FRUIT CLEANSE

Leanne Hall, a yoga instructor and nutrition enthusiast, created the Fresh Fruit Cleanse, which lasts between one to seven days, with greater weight loss resulting with longer cleanses. “Hall claims fruit is ‘nature’s most effective cleanser’ and her cleanse will restore metabolism, strengthen peristaltic (digestive) actions of the intestines, support weight loss, and ‘awaken’ willpower and confidence,” Boeh says. Recommended foods include mangos, apples, pears, bananas, raspberries, plantains, dates, figs, orange juice, lemons, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, spaghetti squash, eggplants, zucchinis, avocados, coconut milk, spirulina, raw cacao, hemp seeds, flax seeds, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, herbs and spices. Pros: This diet encourages healthy fruit and vegetable intake, eliminates processed foods and is affordable (Hall’s book Fresh Fruit Cleanse retails for $11 on amazon.com). And despite its name, this diet isn’t limited to fresh fruit only, Boeh adds. Cons: “All foods must be prepped at home,” Boeh says. “It’s not realistic for many people with time constraints, family or full-time jobs.” The diet does not include exercise, and some dieters may have problems with headaches, fatigue and digestive distress.

This cleanse is based on the thought that when we consume cooked foods, our bodies must divert valuable energy away from normal detoxification processes and instead dedicate this energy toward inefficiently digesting the cooked foods, Boeh explains. “The cleanse claims to allow our bodies to get rid of waste without accumulating more along the way,” she says. The diet includes organic raw fruits, vegetables, seeds and sprouts, but prohibits foods like avocados, nuts and coconuts as these fats are said to reduce efficacy of the cleanse. Additionally, cleansers must eat at least a pound of leafy greens each day of the 7-10 day diet to meet vitamin and mineral needs. Pros: According to rawfoodsolution.com, “the basic approach in this diet is to increase the consumption of raw plant foods (fruits and vegetables), reduce or cut out completely the consumption of cooked food and animal fats and protein (i.e. meat and dairy products).” The Web site also claims feelings of rejuvenation, energy, improved attitude and weight loss. “Any time people eat more fruits and veggies is great,” Boeh says. Cons: The diet’s Web site also explains that it’s not nutritionally complete and should not be followed for prolonged periods of time. Boeh adds that this diet, like most other cleanses, is not based on scientific research. The diet excludes important exercise, and recommends a 24-hour water-only fast prior to starting the up-to-10-day cleanse. Like many cleanses, it is recommended you stay home for the extent of the diet to ensure you’re following the guidelines. And you’ll need to have time to prepare the produce through chopping, peeling, straining, blending, etc. You may experience possible discomfort while “toxins leave the body,” caffeine withdrawal headaches, lightheadedness, nausea, irritability and vomiting. Bottom Line: While a detox diet may benefit you, these are not quick tricks to look better and lose weight. “If you want to feel and look better, eat more ‘real’ foods,” Boeh says. “Focus on plants. Take time to relax or meditate as well as exercise. Listen to your body when it’s hungry, thirsty or tired; fuel when you need to and stop when you’ve had enough.”

Toft Facial Plastic Surgery Kenneth M. Toft, M.D. 959 Reserve Dr. | Roseville 916-782-8638 | www.toftfacialsurgery.com Kenneth M. Toft, M.D. is the Director of Toft Facial Plastic Surgery in Roseville, California. He dedicates 100% of his practice to facial cosmetic surgery. This is in contrast to many surgeons that perform liposuction and breast augmentation, who can spend as little as 20% of their time on the face. Complete dedication to facial plastic surgery is very important for several reasons: the complex anatomy of the face, the need to keep up with the latest techniques of facial rejuvenation, and the importance of facial features in defining individuality. The results of facial plastic surgery are not hidden under clothes; they are seen every day by friends in public and by oneself in the mirror. For these reasons, only the most specialized and highly trained facial plastic surgeon should be selected. Throughout his career Dr. Toft has demonstrated a commitment to excellence. Dr. Toft graduated from college in the top 3% and medical school in the top 10% of his class at the University of Michigan. He then underwent surgical training at Stanford University, with four years completely focused on the face and

neck. Dr. Toft was then selected to be a UCLA Clinical Instructor in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery where he studied with world experts in cosmetic surgery. In 2000, Dr. Toft moved to the Sacramento area to become the Medical Director of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Mercy San Juan and to open the Toft Facial Plastic Surgery Center. Dr. Toft believes the goal of cosmetic surgery is to create improvement while maintaining a natural and balanced appearance. This natural appearance is achieved through the use of modern techniques to make his patients look younger, refreshed, and healthy, never overdone or “operated.” The natural balance of facial features is what creates identity, displays emotion, and establishes level of health. Because each face is different, the goals of surgery for each person is individualized. Dr. Toft draws on his extensive training, aesthetic sense, and personal touch to achieve better balance and improved symmetry for all of his patients’ unique facial features.

New Thai Kitchen Crave the Cuisine by Kelly Soderlund

I

have an issue with most Asian cuisine, as in I’m addicted. If I haven’t gotten my fix in the past month or so, I’ll crave Thai food with an obsessiveness that I find rather scary. So on a recent rainy and dismal Saturday evening, I stopped by Roseville’s New Thai Kitchen for a little pick-me-up. The restaurant, tucked away in the corner of Stone Point Retail Center – home to local foodie favorites Paul Martin’s American Bistro and Blue Nami – is unimposing. The walls, a deep maroon, are adorned with simple Buddha prints and tasteful

gold accents, while the layout provides patrons with an easy view of the open kitchen where a single cook commands the range. My dining partner and I, immediately intoxicated by the wafting aroma of spices that pervade the eatery, anxiously awaited the Larb (Thai lettuce wraps) we ordered as a starter. We didn’t have to wait long. New Thai Kitchen’s service is fast, friendly and efficient. The wraps were covered with that sweet and sour nam pla sauce that defines Thai food, and I found myself eating the leftover bits with just my fingers. For an entrée, I chose the Thai Basil with prawns, a commingling of bamboo shoots, bell pepper, onion and Thai basil leaves, which I find so amazing with their licorice, lemon and pepper undertones. My dining partner chose the Eggplant, which featured stir-fried sliced beef with Japanese eggplants, onions, soybeans, green onions, bell peppers and basil leaves in the house sauce. Both were warm, delicious, filling, and accompanied by nutty and variously shaded brown rice. Even more surprising? New Thai Kitchen is generously affordable. After polishing off both our plates, I was sufficiently satiated with money left in my wallet…at least for a week or so before the cravings set in again.

taste CRAB CAKES WITH SPICY RÉMOULADE Cooking Light® The New Way to Cook Light by Scott Mowbray & Ann Taylor Pittman (Oxmoor House, 2012, $34.95) Crab cake lovers are fierce about the ratio of crab to filler. Our light cakes put the crab forward – and lose calories and fat – by using just enough mayo and breadcrumbs to hold the mixture together. Plus, we skip the deep-frying and sauté in oil to ensure crunch. For a milder rémoulade, omit the ground red pepper. An arugula or baby greens salad with a simple olive oillemon dressing is a nice accompaniment.

Rémoulade: • 1/4 cup canola mayonnaise • 2 tsp. minced shallot • 1 tsp. chopped fresh tarragon • 1 tsp. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley • 1 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard • 3/4 tsp. capers, chopped • 3/4 tsp. white wine vinegar • 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper To prepare crab cakes, drain crabmeat on several layers of paper towels. Combine crabmeat, bell pepper and next 4 ingredients (through egg) in a large bowl, stirring gently to combine. Sir in 1/4 cup panko. Place remaining 3/4 cup panko in a shallow dish. Divide crab mixture into 8 equal portions. Shape 4 portions into 1/4-inch-thick patties; dredge patties in panko. Heat a large nonstick skillet over me48 stylemg.com - January 2013

dinner date Food and Wine for the Season dium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add dredged patties to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Remove from pan; keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining crab mixture, panko and oil. To prepare rémoulade, combine 1/4 cup mayonnaise and remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Serve rémoulade with crab cakes. Serves 4.

2010 MER SOLEIL SILVER CHARDONNAY Friends will be impressed by Mer Soleil Silver Chardonnay’s trendy ceramic bottle… and its contents. The Wagner family – who’ve been creating wine for three generations in Napa Valley and established Caymus Vineyards in 1972 – saw great potential for producing wine elsewhere and began planting grapes in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County, where the cooler coastline yields early ripening for Chardonnay. Mer Soleil Silver Chardonnay is unoaked – fermented in cement vats and stainless steel tanks – giving it a sharper flavor compared to the rich, buttery barrel-fermented Chardonnay they also make. The grapes grown for Mer Soleil Silver have bright acids and a crisp minerality, resulting in a Chardonnay with a smooth and soft entry, followed by ripe citrus, namely lemon and grapefruit. Charles Wagner II says, “What I love about this wine is that is has a true sense of place. By fermenting and aging without oak, you allow the flavor influences from the vineyard to really shine through.” The wine’s high acidity makes it a perfect match for many foods, including this month’s crab cakes recipe. Start 2013 off by resolving to buy a bottle (retails for about $23) and share it with friends. —Richard Righton Owner, Bidwell Street Bistro in Folsom

Crab Cakes: • 1 lb. jumbo lump crabmeat, shell pieces removed • 2 tbsp. finely chopped green bell pepper • 1 1/2 tbsp. canola mayonnaise • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper • 2 green onions, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup) • 1 large egg, lightly beaten • 1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs), divided • 2 tbsp. canola oil, divided

L

ike no other Florida beach or coastal city, St. Augustine (about an hour’s drive from Jacksonville or Daytona Beach airports) is truly special and offers not only vast sandy beaches created by barrier islands allowing for beach weather all year long, but also the city embodies a wealth of historical significance that can be seen virtually everywhere you look. Why so much history packed in such a tiny town you say? On Easter of 1513, Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon shored his boat here and named the area “La Florida,” after the Easter festival of flowers, “Pascua Florida.” In 1565, Spanish explorer Pedro Menendez de Aviles founded St. Augustine, naming it after the Catholic Saint Augustine of Hippo. In 1821, the Spanish ceded Florida to the U.S. when it became an American territory until achieving statehood in 1845.

Carriage Tour

St. Augustine is considered to be the oldest continuously occupied European settlement in the U.S. and features centuries-old forts, buildings and cobble- and brick-lined streets. You’ll also see horsedrawn carriages touring the town with guests. This year the city and the state of Florida celebrate the 500th anniversary of the European discovery of America proper. With the numerous historical “Viva 500” festivities planned this year and so many more amazing attractions for both families and couples, it’s a great time to put the ever-charming St. Augustine on your map.

LANDMARK ACCOMMODATIONS For royally historic nights of sleep, rest your bags no further than the steps of Casa Monica Hotel. Casa Monica, a Kessler Collection hotel, is St. Augustine’s only AAA Four-Diamond accommo-

dation and has played host to the king and queen of Spain. Originally built and opened in 1888, Casa Monica was fully restored in 1999 after having served as the county courthouse since 1962; prior to that it was the prosperous Hotel Cordova that finally closed in 1932. After the current owner’s $10-million renovation, the rich history of the iconic landmark charms all who visit this fortress-like property. The hotel once again exudes the same splendor that guests would have experienced 125 years ago when it was called Hotel Cordova. Overlooking the downtown district and Matanzas Bay, Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice winner Casa Monica captivates guests with it’s distinct worldly flair combining art and history that is translated by an awe-inspiring grand lobby decked out with Moroccan frescos, fountains, tapestries and magnif-

Ponce de Leon statue

icent chandeliers, all contributing to the property’s mystique. The guest rooms and suites give the feeling of old world charm among Spanish romanticism. Another treasure to be discovered at Casa Monica is the hotel’s signature restaurant, 95 Cordova, which has been featured on the Food Network and Travel Channel. Here guests enjoy a dining experience that they call an art form. The seasonally inspired new world and eclectic menu features favorites such as the Kessler Calamari (fresh as you can get!) and Chilean Sea Bass or the Blue Cheese Filet Mignon. After dinner, head to Casa Monica’s Cobalt Lounge for the signature New World Martini and live jazz performed by the region’s best musicians. January 2013 - stylemg.com 51

What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience? I helped my mom at her office when I was very young. I learned responsibility and accountability for getting things done when they needed to be. I also developed office skills such as typing, filing and organizing. What life accomplishments are you most proud of? My biggest accomplishment would be taking care of my daughter. I’m beyond proud of myself for taking on the responsibility of showing another human being the beauty of life. To see her grow and learn new things is one of the most rewarding things as a parent. It’s a huge and tough responsibility, especially at a young age, but it’s also the most beautiful thing in the world. Who is your role model in business or in life, and why? My parents are my biggest role models. They have taught me so much about business and life, and are successful in both areas. They’ve taught me I can achieve whatever I set my mind to and about what is most important in life – that it’s not all about materialistic things. They taught me to be aware, know what I want, and try my hardest to achieve my goals. What’s your favorite place to eat out locally? Bubba Kababa in Roseville. The décor and music makes for a fabulous and authentic Persian dining experience; the staff is always eager to please, and the food is great every time. And finally, customer service is…? Customer service is of utmost importance in my industry; it’s the foundation for success and what makes my business what it is. To me, it’s all about satisfying your customers in the best way possible and making them feel comfortable. Exceptional customer service is what brings the shine to a business’ name.

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you? My business includes all things dog – training, cage-free boarding, daycare and walking. I also do in-home pet sitting for all other types of pets. My newest offering is classes in first aid and emergency care for pets. The promotional code “STYLE” will give interested readers a $10 discount on their registration. I think my business and I found each other. When the company I was with for 20 years closed, I knew I wanted to do something I was passionate about, but wasn’t sure what that was. I began volunteering at the SPCA and quickly became addicted to learning everything I could about dog training and behavior. Before I knew it, I was on the path to my new career! What life accomplishments are you most proud of? Raising an amazing daughter, Alexandra, who just started graduate studies at San Francisco State University. I’m also very proud of my business. It has been so Elisabeth Rosen rewarding to watch both of my creations grow and evolve. Where do you and your family go locally to have fun? P.E.T. Your Dog Taking walks on nearby trails, or to the dog park of course! Antelope What’s your favorite childhood memory? 916-943-5796 The day my dad brought me my first kitten, Fuzzy. Dad was not a fan of felines, so it was petyourdog.net a big surprise! What’s your favorite local business other than your own? Waggin’ Tails Doggie Day Care. And finally, customer service is…? Absolutely everything! Working with pets and their owners is a privilege, and I think it’s so important to really listen to what each family wants. Whether it’s pet care or dog training, each family is unique in what’s important to them and I like to tailor my services to fit those needs and goals.

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you? I have been seal coating parking lots, driveways and roads for more than 20 years. I love to seal a steep roadway most people won’t touch and watch the customer’s amazement at how good it looks upon completion. During the first 15 years of my career, I was an estimator for other companies, but the last 20, I’ve been on my own at Asphalt Consultants. Maybe we found each other. What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience? I was a paperboy in Sunnyvale, California. As a young teen, I was up at 4:30 a.m., seven days a week, folding papers with my best friend and throwing them on porches (not dropping them on driveways), and then collecting money at the end of the month. It was a big responsibility doing it all, just like nowadays. How are you involved with both the community and your customer? We’re very active in the Rocklin Chamber of Commerce, including the Chairman’s Circle, and attend many of their events. Where do you go when the going gets tough? Mountain biking and hiking in Sedona. What’s your biggest job perk? Being in construction, things really slow down in the winter, which allows us time to vacation, take mountain biking trips and prepare for the next season. What’s your favorite place to eat out locally? A nice dinner out means Hawks in Granite Bay; otherwise, it’s Primo Pizza Burger and Brew in Rocklin. What’s your favorite local business other than your own? Dannydreads.com – T-shirts with “good vibe” attitude. And finally, customer service is…? We go above and beyond to give the customer more than what they expect.

the perfect stride Local Ultrarunners Go the Distance by Tom Mailey

There are worse places to suffer.

I

’m climbing up a steep side of the American River Canyon somewhere below the Foresthill Divide. It’s sunrise, and the eastern swells of the Sierra are silhouetted against a beautiful cranberry sky. The early October air is chilly. The waxy leaves of manzanita trees rattle from a slight breeze. I am six or so miles into an 18-mile training “run” for the California International Marathon (CIM). The trail before me is so pitched I’m walking at the moment, each stride nearly level with my eyes. My heart’s pounding and my breathing sounds like a monkey trying to work a hacksaw. I can’t wait to reach a flat spot where I can start jogging again and, ironically, catch my breath. I’ve been training for the marathon, (my third) since mid-July, mostly around the relative flatness of Roseville. This trail training is something new, introduced to me by Roseville ultrarunner Chuck Godfredsen. “Dude, it’ll really help you 66 stylemg.com - January 2013

build endurance,” he told me. Sure, if it doesn’t kill me. For many, the new year is all about resolutions of fitness. And that’s fine. Have to start someplace, right? So sign up at a gym or Zumba class and maybe part of your motivation can be, hey, it could be worse: You could know Chuck. Not that he’s a bad guy. On the contrary, he’s a great guy – friendly, positive, unassuming – the kind of guy who can charm you into running up and down (and up again) a rocky canyon until you reach a point that you’d whistle up a mountain lion to end your misery – if you had anything left to wet your whistle with. A firefighter by trade, he shrugs when asked what compels him and his wife Trish. (I should mention she’s every bit the ultrarunner he is.) Ultrarunners do distances greater than 26.2 miles, most commonly 50 or 100. Chuck and Trish have done several of both. In fact, marathons like last month’s CIM are mere warm-ups for their bigger events, like

hiking up really tall hills before scaling a few Mt. Everest’s. “We started out jogging just for good fitness,” Chuck says. “That turned into marathons, which morphed into ultras. We figured if we can do 26, then we can do 50. And if we can do 50...” He says this with all the passion of a mall walker explaining that if he can make it as far as JC Penney, then he can make it to Nordstrom. What’s perhaps most amazing about the couple is they still maintain a “normal” lifestyle. Four kids at home, ranging from junior high to junior college; nice house, quiet court; green and trim lawn. “As a firefighter,” he explains, “I have rotating weekends off, which gives me the chance to get out on a quality run and still be home in time to get the kids from school and get things done around the house – plus be around if Trish needs to get in her ‘quality run.’” Although since their kids are older now they can run more together, something Chuck says makes their marriage stronger. “Out on the trails we’re able to spend several hours together, and often we just talk. It’s a time where we can focus, without distractions, and hammer things out.” I want to tell him you can also do that during Happy Hour at McCormick and Schmick’s, but decide to keep that to myself. At one point deep in our run, the trail breaks out of a thick stand of timber to lace along a grassy hillside above the tumbling American River. The licorice scent of anise mixes with fragrant pine and the sky is an electric, bracing blue. Never breaking stride, Chuck suddenly spreads his arms out and hollers with unrestrained elation, “It doesn’t get more beautiful than this!” Straggling behind, I have to agree. And, at least until the next hill, I find myself hoping any nearby mountain lions have something better to do.
