Cut the calories in your Jamba Juice Steel cut oatmeal

I love the berry steel cut oatmeal at any of my fav airport Jamba Juice locations. But this morning I missed my chance to save 70 calories by not ordering the cinnamon and brown sugar version. The name sugar in the title threw me off. I went with the berry instead. While the JJ berry …

My Favorite Push-up

Hip Heist push-up I love this Jillian Michael's version of a push-up. It is little tough the first time you try it but it's worth learning as It works for multiple muscle groups and when done quickly and consecutively it builds muscle and burns calories. Because this move is more complex than your average push …

What really lies “Under the Tuscan Sun” is Whole Wheat Pasta and Bikini Boot Camp

New York Times: Best shoes for Travel? Ask a Flight attendant

I loved Heather’s post this week about inflight shoes, because as a flight attendant myself I struggle with finding great concourse and inflight shoes that are attractive and comfortable. I really love the DSW shoes she has highlighted here and am going to check those out. I also have a fav pair of inflight shoes that are cute and comfy and only $16 at Payless shoes!

Heather Poole

A few days ago New York Times writer Stephanie Rosenbloom contacted me to discuss something very important: Flight attendant shoes. I wouldn’t joke about something as serious as this. The following quotes originally appeared in the article Best Shoes for Travel? Ask a flight attendant that came out today. For the record, my Aerosoles really are cute. I swear I get compliments on them all the time. Don’t believe me?  Check out the picture at the bottom of this post.

Heather Poole, who lives in Los Angeles and has been a flight attendant for more than 15 years, acknowledged that many female flight attendants put Dansko clogs on in the plane but described the shoes as “hideous.” Her favorite in-flight pair? Flats with a cushioned insole ($29.95) from Design Shoe Warehouse. In the terminal she wears shoes by Aerosoles.

If you don’t use oil what do you put on your salad?
