May was a tough month.
My father passed away May 9 after a very stoic fight
with cancer. I miss him terribly and continue
to talk to him and ask for his guidance daily.
He's always expected the best from me and I hope I
have, and continue, to live up to his expectations.

for Better Posture
Students often want to know if yoga can make them
taller. While yoga is not going to make you grow, it
can noticeably improve your posture, making you look
taller, thinner, and more confident. Many postural
problems are caused by the hours spent each day

go a long way towards improving your posture. To

'Exercise Snacking' the New Way to Help Manage Blood
For those trying to manage blood sugar, a healthy
diet is key. However, while food choice is
important, getting adequate physical activity is,
“Exercise snacking” is similar to the idea of
consuming small meals throughout the day, but
involves breaking up exercise into small bouts
throughout the day. This is helpful for those who
have trouble getting the recommended amount of
physical activity each day. The best part? Research

Pilates for Your Mind and Body
Do you want to destress and improve
your balance, core strength, functional fitness and
mobility? Pilates might be for you.
A review of a Pilates mat class is long overdue; it
is hard to find a facility that doesn't offer some
iteration of the tradition. Even studios that don't
offer traditional classes usually offer combo
classes, such as "yogalates," or incorporate
Pilates-inspired exercises into non-Pilates classes.

A short, simple article with a few beginning
ASL signs to help get you started with your baby. To see the signs click
4 skinless chicken breast halves, with ribs
2 skinless chicken thighs, with bones
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus 1 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper,
plus 1 teaspoon
1/4 cup olive oil
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
3 ounces prosciutto, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup white wine
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon fresh oregano leaves
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons capers
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and
1/2 teaspoon pepper. In a heavy, large skillet, heat
the olive oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot,
cook the chicken until browned on both sides. Remove
from the pan and set aside.
Keeping the same pan over medium heat, add the
peppers and prosciutto and cook until the peppers
have browned and the prosciutto is crisp, about 5
minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add
the tomatoes, wine, and herbs. Using a wooden spoon,
scrape the browned bits off the bottom of the pan.
Return the chicken to the pan, add the stock, and
bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and
simmer, covered, until the chicken is cooked
through, about 20 to 30 minutes.
If serving immediately, add the capers and the
parsley. Stir to combine and serve. If making ahead
of time, transfer the chicken and sauce to a storage
container, cool, and refrigerate. The next day,
reheat the chicken to a simmer over medium heat.
Stir in the capers and the parsley and serve.
