â&#x20AC;˘ From lid to brow, apply ďŹ&#x201A;esh-toned eye shadow. In the crease, apply soft taupe or a neutral shade thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slightly darker.

Bright Eyes Seasonal allergy sufferers want bigger, brighter eyes without the red. Here are some simple tricks from Jonye Cordova of jonyefaces: â&#x20AC;˘ Start with well-groomed eyebrows. Clean strays to deďŹ ne shape.

â&#x20AC;˘ A white or nude eyeliner on the inner eye and the inside rim of the bottom lashes will open eyes and reduce red. â&#x20AC;˘ Lightly ďŹ ll in the bottom lashes with a thin line of soft brown powder or pencil eyeliner. Curl and apply mascara to top lashes only for your quick eye-opener.

Cocktails and makeovers get the girls together.

â&#x20AC;˘ Pat concealer on inside and under eyes to brighten and reduce darkness.

â&#x20AC;˘ Using a ďŹ&#x201A;at liner brush underneath your top lashes at their bases, apply a waterproof cake eyeliner in black or brown into the lash line. This is known as tight lining.

Problem: “I haven’t started yet.” Solution: Today is day 1. Let’s get started! I’m sure you have some form of fitness goal in mind. For example “I want to be bikini ready for the beach this summer.” First thing is first. Assess the situation. You need to know where you are starting. Take measurements of your body. Your weight is one number. Get a tailor’s tape and measure the circumference of at least these reference points of your body: Neck, Shoulders, abdomen at bellybutton, hips where your rear-end protrudes the furthest, and thigh right under your rear-end. Record these measurements so that you may reference them later. You may also choose to assess your strength with a pushup test and 60 second cruch test. Basically, see how much or many of something you can do and set your goals accordingly. You may be able to do only 5 pushups the first time. You can then set a goal to do 10 or 20 at a time. The same may be applied to your cardio.

Breaking through the wall that is you Start towards your goals and conquer plateaus. By now, if you have been following the Belle Fit Challenge workouts, you may notice you have hit a plateau. You aren’t seeing the changes that you did in the first two months. This may be happening for a few reasons such as your body is getting comfortable with your workouts or you’re not able to stay committed to the workouts in general. We will review some solutions to these and other problems. And if you haven’t started following any fitness plan yet, let me ask you, why not? If not now…when?

To be SMART your goal needs to be: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-Bound. An example of a SMART goal is (Specifically): To be down 5% body fat (attainable within the timeframe) from my current measurement (measurable) so that I’m able to fit into my yellow polka-dot bikini (realistic) by Memorial Day weekend (time-bound). List your SMART goal and ask yourself these questions: How is it measurable? Can I realistically attain the goal? How is it timebound? Is it specific? You can’t be too specific with a SMART goal. For more help with assessments and setting goals, go to an American Family Fitness location and consult with a personal trainer. You can find previous month’s Belle Fit Challenge workouts and menus at styleweekly.com/bellefit.

Problem: “I’ve been following the workouts and nutrition program and I have hit a plateau. I’m not seeing the changes like I did in the beginning.”

Solution: Plateaus can be frustrating. You’ve been working hard and you aren’t seeing the rewards for it. It’s enough to make anyone fall out of their workout excitement. But stay strong! It only takes a change or two to get results again. A plateau can occur as a result of your body adjusting to the workouts and eating habits that you have been following. This is actually a great thing because it means you have been stepping up to new fitness levels. Congratulations! Now, let’s step it up. To make an effect on this plateau we can change a number of things from the pattern and amount of days you are exercising, to the speed, weight or tool that you use in your current routine. If you are working out every other day, try working out two or three days in a row. Then keep it light with moderate cardio on the “off” days and continue performing the daily chores such as gardening, cleaning the house, and feeding the horses (or kids), as every movement helps in your daily calorie burn. Try your exercises with different tools such as dumbbells, barbells, bungee tubes, cables, machines, medicine balls, etc. Two of my favorite tools include the kettlebell and the TRX suspension system. Not only are they convenient to take with you, unlike a set of dumbbells or a machine, but they offer the ability to combine cardio and resistance training into one workout. They are great for travel, even on a vacation to the beach, where you wouldn’t want to be stuck inside a gym. To learn the moves from a Russian Kettlebell and TRX certified trainer, join Andi for the Belle Fit Challenge on May 1st.

Problem: “I just can’t seem to find the time to get a workout in.” Solution: Bologna! You’re telling me you don’t have even 20 minutes to spare in your day? Even the President of the United States has time for workouts! It will take some planning, organization and arranging but with practice you will definitely find enough time to get some workouts into that busy schedule. This is where this month’s workout is going to come into play. Not only will you be challenging your body in new ways with a variety of workouts, but you’ll be combining cardio and resistance training, and further boosting your metabolism with increased weight resistance. Let’s get started!


What are Kettlebells? They are weights that look like a cannon ball on the bottom with a thick, attached handle. They

+-*(*/$*)

also look like an old cast iron kettle. They can be used like a dumbbell to perform most anything you can use a dumbbell for but they come with an added bonus. Because of the displacement of the weight and the thick smooth handle, they can be used in a ballistic fashion, allowing you to swing the weight. Think muscle confusion. The following exercises utilize the kettlebell. If you don’t have a kettlebell you can use a water jug. Simply fill the jug with water and/or sand and wrap a small towel through the handle. Hold onto the towel to perform the exercise. Note: this is going to be a challenging workout for your grip. Do you ever have a hard time opening pickle jars? Not anymore! Pick a size or weight that’s pretty light to start. When you get your form down you may progress to a heavier weight.

The following exercises are full body utilizing your legs, glutes, hip flexors, core, upper back and shoulders. Plus they incorporate cardio because you are working without rest. The Two Hand Kettlebell Hipswing (or Water Jug Hipswing) Here’s how it goes: Stand with your feet an inch or two wider than hip width. Begin swinging the kettlebell by bending forward from your hips and bending you knees to move your rear end back. Think of squatting over a public toilet. Keep your head up, shoulders back, chest out and back straight. Now, pull the kettlebell, between your legs, back towards your body and then explosively but with control stand straight up, tightening all of the muscles in your legs and glutes. Breathe out as you do this. The motion of your hips should drive the kettlebell up in front as you use shoulder and upper back strength to lift the kettlebell to eye level. Allow the kettlebell to fall back down between your legs to repeat the swing movement. The tempo of this exercise should be quick and without pause.

Medicine Ball Squat-Shot (or Weighted Bounce Ball Squat-Shot) The Squat-Shot: Standing with feet hip width apart, hold the ball at your chest. Squat down, keeping your head and chest up and your abs tight, then explosively stand and throw the ball up and forward as if shooting for a target. Retrieve the ball by bending your legs into a squat and pulling the ball to your chest and repeat the movement. This too should be done without pause and as fast as you can while maintaining control.

The Garden Hose Whip-It (or Blanket Whip-It) How to Whip-it: Stand with your feet at hip width. Grip, with both hands, either the end of a garden hose or the corners of a blanket. Lift your hands towards the sky and then, while breathing out, pull your arms back towards the ground. While you do this, tighten your abs and bend your legs as if you are slamming something on the ground. Without rest, lift your arms back up towards the sky and repeat the movements. As with the kettlebell hipswing, this should be done quickly and without pause.

For this month’s workout combine exercises so that your workout consists of a push action, a pull action, a vertical movement, a locomotion movement and some core specific moves. Here are three examples… Example ‚

Example ƒ

Example „

Rotate through the set three to five times. Perform each exercise for a time of 30 to 60 seconds depending on your fitness level and time available for the total workout. Four rounds should take 20 to 25 minutes. You can do this on your lunch break! Kettlebell Hip Swing Step Back Lunge Bent Over Row (1 or 2 hands) Push Up

Whip-It Walk-It-Out Squat & Shoulder Press (1 or 2 hands) Side Plank

 Crabwalk – like when you were a kid. On your hands and feet with chest facing the sky. Now walk. Challenge! Hold a weight on your stomach while you walk. Don’t drop it!

New! Add These

Squat-Shot Y-T-Upside Down V Walking Lunge with Bicep Curl 45 Degree Crunch



Bridge w/Lat Pull-Over – with a weight in your hands hold them over your chest. Keep your arms straight and drop them behind your head. Now tighten your abs, breath out and pull them back to start.

Side to Side Twist – sitting on the floor with your feet in front of you, keep your knees touching. Lean back arms length from your knees. Now twist side to side. Keep your knees touching!

Challenge! Add a crunch, pushing the weight to the sky!

Challenge! Hold a weight at your chest!

When you are comfortable with the new moves, try them one-handed. Remember to keep your shoulders square and maintain form.

CONGRATULATIONS! Now that you have been following the Belle Fit Challenge for 60 days a healthy lifestyle has become your routine. The longer you continue your new healthy routines the more likely they will develop into habits. On average it takes at least 21 repetitions of an action before it becomes a habit. By continuing to log your food consumption and daily exercise you will ensure that your new healthier lifestyle will become a habit. Have fun developing healthy habits. Set goals and reward yourself once you have achieved those goals. However, remember to make sure the rewards you choose reinforce your new healthier lifestyle. Eating healthy and increasing your activity levels is wonderful but be careful not to choose old behaviors as rewards. A box of doughnuts can quickly cancel out all of the positive choices you made during the week and although they do indeed taste delicious going down, you more than likely will not only feel ill after eating them you will also feel guilty. Those doughnuts are just not worth it. Instead, choose to reward yourself with things that will reinforce your new healthy lifestyle such as exercise equipment, new gym clothes or perhaps something trendy you were not comfortable wearing before you began the Belle Fit Challenge. Avoid resorting back to old food choices when in a hurry or craving comfort foods. Be adventurous with your food selections. Try new fruits and vegetables as often as you can. Not only will this make mealtime more exciting it will also expand your options for healthier meals. Try to do the majority of your grocery shopping around the perimeter of the store, by doing so you will avoid most processed foods that are traditionally full of empty calories and nutritionally void. Here is a sample menu full of healthy options to help keep the new healthier you inspired:

Is Incontinence Keeping You From Enjoying Life to the Fullest? Our Specialists Can Help. Virginia Urology is Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier specialty center for the diagnosis, treatment and management of urinary incontinence. Some things in life can be embarrassing to talk about, like problems with leaking urine when you laugh, cough or sneeze, or having to rush to the bathroom. Urinary incontinence is not just something you have to live with and should never be considered a normal part of aging. Urinary incontinence is a true medical condition of urologic nature, and is best evaluated and treated by a urologist. Virginia Urology for Women has the most comprehensive team of specialists to evaluate and treat womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bladder conditions. With the combined training and experience of our urologists, gynecologist and pelvic ďŹ&#x201A;oor physical therapists, we are able to provide the broadest treatment options in this area.

Now is the time to discuss this topic with a urologist. Call 804-288-0339 or visit www.uro.com for appointments or more information.
