Bike to Work Day, May 16th

The City of Carmel is celebrating National Bike Month on Friday, May 16th as National Bike to Work Day.  Residents are encouraged to use Bikeways and multi-use paths or park vehicles at the Monon Community Center and ride to work form there.

Weight Loss Boot Camp

This reporter had an amazing experience with MOMI Weight Loss program.  I didn't need to loose a lot of weight, but I had a terrible time loosing that weight.  It wasn't because I wasn't trying hard.  Then I meet Dr. Whirley-Diaz and decided to give it a try.

The program was easy to learn and follow.  The first three days was the most difficult time for me and then after that it became easy.  In three months I loss 31 pounds, felt so much better and had created a new eating habit that has helped me keep the weight off.

MOMI Weight Loss is now offering a "Boot Camp" to help introduce the program, educate people about their nutrition plan, exercising and creating a new eating habit.  A new camp is started each month.  Check out the information and registration for the Weight Loss Boot Camp.

This morning I watched a report on the Today Show about a product called "Palcohol"  This is a powder substance that when added to water will turn into alcohol.  There will be; vodka and Puerto Rican rum with four cocktail versions; Cosmopolitan, Mojito, Margarita and Lemon Drop.

So, we were wondering what you think about this.
