Why Are Some To Dos Just So Hard to Get Done?

The first rule of productivity: Make a To Do list. But why do some things on your list get done the minute you write them down while others linger for days?

Your task completion probably has more to do with your efforts to maintain a strong self-esteem and social esteem (or how others see you), says Joseph R. Ferrari, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at DePaul University and author of the book Still Procrastinating? The No Regrets Guide to Getting it Done.

How Bad Is It *Really* to Wear Makeup to the Gym?

Maybe you went straight to the gym after work and forgot to wipe off your foundation, maybe you intentionally slick on some eyeliner before your sweat session (hey, your trainer's hot!), or maybe you just don't have it in you to fully expose your most recent breakout during your treadmill run. Whatever your intention, is it really safe for your skin to wear makeup while you're working out?

Abdominal Curl

A. Start seated on mat with knees bent, feet flat on the floor. Hold resistance band in both hands, arms extended out at chest level. Slowly curl the upper body down, making a "c" curve with your spine.
B. From the "c" curve position, curl the body up an inch and down an inch, exhaling on the up and inhaling on the down.
C. Add variations, twisting side to side and squeezing the band outwards to work the obliques. Do 10 to 15 reps forward and 10 to 15 reps side to side.

Clam Shell

A. Start seated on mat. Place a circular resistance band (booty band) around both legs, just between the knees and hips. Lay on the left side of the body and stack the legs, drawing the knees and the toes up. Gently resting head in left hand, place the right hand in front of the waistline.
B. Keep abs engaged and both feet together. Begin to lift and lower the leg squeezing from the right glute every time the leg lifts. Keep hips square and waistline long. Do 20 to 30 reps, then switch sides.
