I came across this site the other day and found it extremely interesting. I focuses on an "unspoken" disease to the public, Dermatillomania. I noticed that on occasion, I display some of those symptoms. Not sure that I would say I "suffer" from it, but it sure is interesting that its been classified as a specific problem. You can check their site out here. What are your thoughts?

Snow Days are no excuse for couches and fatty comfort foods. Here are some sugestions from Glowing Oasis Pilates to stay on track indoors:
First:PILATES! Shocker, right? Pilates can easily be done on the living room floor. Grab your mat and bust out some Bridging, the Hundred, Roll Ups, Criss Cross, Swan, Rolling Like a Ball, and any others you want to throw in. Why not get the kids involved? Pilates is great for the whole family!
Second: Modify. I mean recipes. There are many warm, comfy foods that can be altered into delicous healthiful dishes. I am breaking out the slow cooker myself to make some Teriyaki Chicken for tonight. I modified the recipe from LaLoosh. This is one of my favorite blogs and I highly recommend searching their site for lighter alternatives. My version of the recipe is below:
Teriyaki Slow Cooker Chicken
1lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 1/4 cup mandarin oranges in light syrup, drained
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp Brown Sugar Splenda (or 1/4 cup brown sugar if you prefer not to use artificial sweeteners)
1/2 tsp black pepper
Combine soy sauce, garlic, black pepper, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Stir until combined.
Place chicken in bottom of slow cooker, cover with oranges and top with sauce.
Cook on low 6-8 hours.
During last hour of cooking, add in bell pepper slices.
To thicken sauce, also remove lid from slow cooker in the last hour of cooking.
