Slim Down For Summer

I was reading this article on Yahoo Health yesterday and thought of sharing it with you all

With SELF’s fun and easy Drop 10 exercise plan, you can tone up all over in just five weeks! The simple slimming formula: cardio quickie workouts that take just 14 minutes, 6 simple toning moves and a sneaky strategy for plowing through them fast.

Why it works:

The moves use a Jedi mind trick to make them more manageable. You’ll do 8 reps of a move, rest for 10 seconds, then do 7 reps, rest for 10, and so on, until you’re left with one measly rep. Couple that with the fat-melting magic of Tabata cardio intervals (Tabata simply means 20-second bursts with 10-second rests, repeated 8 times) and you’ll firm fast!

What you’ll need:

A stability ball and a set of medium-weight dumbbells. That’s it!
What to do: Complete the Drop 10 toning moves below 3 times per week, counting down sets from 8 reps to 1 rep with rests in between.

Works biceps, butt, thighs
Stand with a stability ball pressed between your lower back and Continue reading

Nexium & Naxiprazol – UPDATE

Not too long ago, I posted about taking Naxiprazol instead of Nexium (link)!

I asked a couple of pharmacists and few doctors (from both; Government and Private Health Sectors) about it… turn out it was okay to take it!

As a matter of fact, Kuwait is known for higher prices in medications worldwide! I did not mean in anyway to show that I do not care about my health and that I wont pay more to get the real thing… if its really “the real thing”

So according to the doctors I asked, I can continue taking it… if you are planning to do so, check with your doctors too ;-)

Cheers!

Nexium Vs. Naxiprazol

A while back, I was prescribed to take Nexium

14, 20mg, tablets that sells somewhere between KD7.500 -8.500

While I was in Syria I realized that I had forgotten to bring in a new box, and was left with a couple of tablets only for a 12-days period. I headed to one of their local pharmacies and was given the Syrian version of Nexium, which is called Naxiprazol

20, 20mg, tablets that sells for SYP110 (which is close to  600 fils!!!!)

He said the foreign make of the same medicine is SYP800 (around KD4.600) which is like half the price of the one in Kuwait!!!

After I tried it for few days, same effect and no problem, I went ahead and got few boxes with me back home. Question is, is it really the same? Should I take it with me on my next doctor visit and ask? I have no complaints so far! I am just questioning the price difference!!

Oh and I like the fact that the prices are PRINTED on the boxes of their medications so its fixed all over the city ;-)
