5 moves to a flat stomach that aren’t crunches

A major part of getting in shape is having the motivation to keep up with your workout routine, and it can be difficult to stay driven when your workout is boring you. We’ve all heard of the classic crunch move to get a flat stomach, but if you’re like me (or most women), a simple crunch just isn’t cutting it.

Turm Around Bright Eyes: Part II

Turmeric isn’t just found in the food and condiments of far flung times and continents. It is also present in your everyday bright yellow hotdog mustard.
