3 Healthy Weight Loss Tips for Women

January 27, 2016 9:57 pm

It can be difficult to lose weight on your own, but with some dedication and a few smart tips from the professionals, your weight loss goals are completely attainable. Here are three healthy ways for women to lose weight. (Be sure to ask for doctor for advice, too!)

  1. Never skip a meal. Many people skip meals while dieting in order to cut calories (or because they went overboard with a previous meal), but this is one of the worst things you can do in the long run. Not only does skipping meals make you feel hungry and even faint or dizzy, it also slows your metabolism and can even cause you to overeat at your next meal. Shoot for five small, balanced meals per day.
  2. Be realistic about your weekly weight loss. While it is possible to drop a lot of weight all at once, you’re much more likely to gain the weight back if you follow this plan. Instead, aim to lose 2 to 2.5 pounds per week, which is the amount that most doctors consider healthiest for the average woman.
  3. Plan short, intense blocks of exercise each day. It’s not always easy to work out every day, but studies show that shorter, more intense bursts of regular exercise are more conducive to weight loss than working out for longer periods only a few times per week.

Up and Away Hot Air Ballooning: Float Through the Sky

January 20, 2016 8:01 pm

If you want to get a bird's eye view of Santa Rosa, Up and Away Hot Air Ballooning is here to help. Its rainbow-hued hot air balloons launch from sites near the Sonoma County Airport and take winding routes around the sky for about an hour, traveling anywhere from 3 to 10 miles.

You can never predict precisely where your hot air balloon will float, but don't worry—your pilot knows. He or she checks out the wind and weather patterns before you take flight and works with the currents to navigate wherever you want to go. From up high, you'll probably be able to spot the Pacific Ocean ebbing in the distance, the jagged skyline of San Francisco, or the rolling peaks and valleys of Napa. So keep your eyes peeled from the moment you launch until you softly land to drink in some of the best views around.
