Seeing the glass as half-empty is an attitude that will only bring you down and tarnish the quality of your life. Where’s the fun in a negative mindset anyway? You constantly feel low, every experience feels like a punishment, and you’re never happy. One of the things you can never change is the fact that you’re human. Our nature is to be imperfect and flawed, and there is nothing wrong with that.
There is nothing better than a play date for my kids that turns into a workout for me! Here is a video clip of me and Jamie doing some kettlebell swings. You might recognize her from my lunge workout video. She is a great friend that I don’t get to see often enough. (hint hint Jamie!) We were using my hot pink Gymboss and doing 30 second swing intervals. (which is why we appear to be standing around. We weren’t…we were catching our breath and answering toddler questions!)
Today is the first day of winter and although it’s tempting to take up permanent residence on the couch, in front of the fire, with some hot chocolate…….NO!!! I have to remind myself daily that in order to avoid the winter weight gain, I need to stay focused and stick to a sensible workout and diet program. Summer bodies are made in the winter, right? Here are some tips to help keep me on track! Remember: Summer bodies are made in the winter! 1. Move. Every single day!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
