Ginger brew

Losing weight is one of the most significantly positive things you can do for your overall health, and ginger can play an integral role in the process. The reason is because it acts as a fat burner, specifically helping to make sure that the weight you’re losing is from fat, and not just general weight or water loss. Another factor that helps shed the pounds is that ginger helps you feel full, so you’ll eat less and feel fuller longer, reducing your overall caloric intake.

Breakfast

Breakfast is the very important meal of the day. We need to eat breakfast regularly so our body can function well. I love eating oatmeal in breakfast and I used to top it with some berries and banana. It taste delicious and it is healthy for us.

Freckles Natural Remedy

Buy fresh turmeric sticks from your local health store and then grind them into fine powder. Take a teaspoon of turmeric powder and add water to it to make a paste of spreadable consistency. Cover the freckles well with this paste. Let the paste dry and dry scrub it from your skin. Wash the skin using lukewarm water. Repeat the application of turmeric paste as many number of times as you want to in a day.

Snacking

Eating healthier doesn’t mean you have to give up snacking. In fact, snacking can be an excellent way to curb cravings and keep you satisfied between meals, as long as you snack smart. I also love to make my own snack and put in a Mason jar so I can bring it anywhere and one of my favorite snacks is fruit smoothie.

Cycling

Cycling increases muscle tone. Cycling improves general muscle function gradually, with little risk of over exercise or strain. Regular cycling strengthens leg muscles and is great for the mobility of hip and knee joints. You will gradually begin to see an improvement in the muscle tone of your legs, thighs, rear end and hips.

Hair mask

There are many natural products that we can use to treat our hair and some of these are found in our kitchen like olive oil and egg. Olive oil hair treatment is quick and easy to make; it will take you only 15 minutes to do it. Mix one egg yolk with two tablespoons of olive oil and a teaspoon of lemon juice. Keep this mask on your hair for about 15 minutes, then shampoo and condition. Your hair will become shinier and softer.

Make Up Remover/ Facial Wipes

I like to use wipes when removing my makeup and when cleansing my face when I’m in outdoor areas. I got some natural facial cleansing wipes that is very hydrating and really works well on my skin. I am so happy that this facial mask does not contain any harsh chemicals and can be used in all skin type.

Olive oil

Olive oil is very rich in vitamins, minerals and natural fatty acids. It’s also convenient for a sensitive skin. Olive oil is a powerful ingredient of anti-aging skin care products; rich in antioxidants, it prevents skin aging, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, it also nourishes, rejuvenates and protects the skin.

Removing Radiators for donation

So I recently made the decision to remove my radiator heat system and replace it by adding a gas furnace to my pending central air install. I was wondering if somebody could recommend a contractor to pull the entire system (radiators, pipes, boiler) from my two story house and cart it down to Community Forklift or a similar organization. Also, any general advice from somebody who has had this done would be helpful as well. Thanks!

And just to be clear I do prefer radiant heat to forced air. My radiant system would need extensive work to be functional and efficient. The whole system would need to be repiped, I would need to add a radiator to the kitchen extension and the boiler takes up a 4×3 room in my living space. Instead of spending many thousands of dollars to redo the entire system I’m cutting my losses and installing central ac/gas heat from a rooftop system.

Missed connection with guy with man bun on the metro

Lost- beautiful man on the metro.

Yesterday evening around 5:30pm I saw you on the yellow line, going from the airport into D.C. You had long brown hair, and what looked like blue eyes. You smiled at me as I awkwardly tried to read my book and ignore the magnificence of your man bun. You had faded red Nike sneakers and a unique energy. We both transferred at Gallery Place, and I would have thrown my normal commuting patterns to the wind if I hadn’t been running late for yoga. As we both found our way to our respective Red line platforms (you headed towards Union Station, me towards Woodley Park) we looked across the tracks at each other, humanity swilling around us, and shared a quintessential Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan moment. In the short rush of a metro train, you were gone.

If you are this man, or you think you are friends with this man, please let him know that a very normal woman who encountered him on the metro is looking to meet him.

Sweet barn kittens (3-4 months) that would love to come home to you :)

Hi there!

My grandpas barn has 5 sweet kittens that would love a great home :)

There are 2 gray and 3 orange kittens- all have white paws and white chests. They very socialized with other cats, humans, and would have no problem getting along with dogs! They’ve been in a barn their whole lives so they would make a perfect indoor/outdoor cat. They’ve also spent a lot of time with their mother so they are going to make great pets.

I will be picking up the kittens on Thursday so if you’re interested / would like to see more pics let me know. I will be bringing them to Dupont Circle/Georgetown area and they’ll be available to pick up after Sunday! They are obviously free but don’t have any of their shots and haven’t been to a vet. Perfect holiday kitty for the family!

Anthony Bowen YMCA

Did anyone else get a letter from the Anthony Bowen YMCA saying that they are tacking on another $36 ($39 for families) to the December billing.

For programs and services.

I get that it all goes to help people, but I can’t help but think that this was handled poorly. I mean, if I wanted to give an extra $36, I would do that. I already give to some other charities, and those are of my choice.

It’s not a huge deal, financially, I just think it’s bizarre to force it upon people. If they want to raise their rates, fine, announce that and let the market dictate.

Packages stolen off porch

Neighbors,

We had several packages stolen off our front porch yesterday (5th and Gallatin NW). Mid-afternoon a man in a bright blue jacket, hat and messenger bag walked up to the house, knocked on the door (presumably to make sure no one was home), and grabbed our stuff. We have security cameras and were able to provide the footage to the police, but be forewarned that this may be a common occurrence in the neighborhood, especially with the holidays coming up.

The police let us know this happens quite often where the thief will grab the packages, then find an alley to open them and transfer the contents to their bag so as not to look suspicious walking down the street with boxes. Think about requesting a signature for future deliveries to your homes.
