She's Got Curves and Brains

Curvy women may not have low dress sizes, but they may have high IQ's, this according to a recent health study. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh and UC Santa Barbara found that a lower waist-to-hip ratio correlates to higher test scores for both a woman and her child. I'm sure some of you read about this several months ago, but I thought I post this since it's the New Year and many of you have resolutions to work out more and eat better. Remember, it's all about living a healthier life and making lifestyle changes. It's okay to eat carbs and red meat, just do so in moderation. I think one of the best ways to start eating well is to cook at home more. Start with whole foods: You know exactly what you're putting into your body. You can eat cookies and cake, just not a dozen or 3 slices. (And remember bakers, use real butter! Stay far away from margarine and other "fake butters." You might as well use the real thing and enjoy it.)

Here's the link to the full article:

I actually prefer I can't believe it's not butter, and Ryan mocks me endlessly for it. But I do bake with butter. I'm working on cooking more and eating healthy, so far so good. Oh and thanks for all those WY pics, I have some fun ones from there I'll have to send you sometime.
