Twilight: Breaking High Blood Pressure

So I have to come clean about something…

I never have seen, nor will I ever see any Twilight movies. It almost pains me to even mention the damn trilogy.

Some of you may stop reading right now, unsubscribe from my blog and block all pages pertaining to GiGi Eats Celebrities after learning of this “horrid” news… But some of you might actually subscribe to my e-mail list, YouTube channel, Tumblr, like my Facebook Page and follow me on Twitter (and maybe even send me fan mail??), knowing that I am not one of “those girls” (what ever “those girls” actually means… LOL).

Obviously since I have never seen these movies before, I have no idea what they are about (except that there are three – or soon to be three, 17-hour long flicks filled with werewolves that make out with vampires and then gallop away on unicorns?).

Alas, the third and FINAL (thank god) movie comes out November 16 (I just heard a girlish squeal… Not quite sure where that came from).

So why on earth would I be bringing up this movie, considering this blog is all about food, fitness and celebrities… Obviously vampires only drink blood (man, really sucks that they can’t eat sushi) and werewolves eat… road kill?

THIS however is the best vampire movie… EVER!

Well vampires got me thinking about blood… and blood got me thinking about blood pressure.

Do you ever think about your blood?

Now that’s a weird question.

But honestly, it is an important question to ask because having high blood pressure is almost as “wonderful” as getting bitten by a vampire (and not “swoon-worthy” Edward – Oh, I guess I know his name too!) 

Wait, this really gets people hot and bothered?

High blood pressure, or to get all medical, hypertension, raises your heart’s workload and can cause serious damage to your arteries. Over time, uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease.

Generally, if your blood pressure reading has a top number (systolic) of 120 or lower and your bottom number (diastolic) is below 80, you are doing just fine. However, if your blood pressure boils above those numbers, your risk of the above ailments rises.

If you have reached your boiling point, there are ways to turn down the “burner”…

  • Exercise at least 30 to 60 minutes most days of the week
  • Reduce your salt intake (but don’t eliminate it entirely)
  • Eat potassium to counterbalance your salt intake
  • Stop smoking, don’t start smoking and avoid second-hand smoke
  • Lose weight if you need to
  • Cut back on alcohol. Men should limit themselves to two drinks per day, while women should only imbibe in one
  • De-stress with yoga, massage, meditations or any other activity that helps you relax
  • If you currently have high blood pressure, caffeine may aggravate your levels so limit your consumption

You know what else can lower your blood pressure? Going to the movies! (Shit, did I just plug Twilight? NO! Go see Wreck-It Ralph!) 

Although, when you see movie ticket prices, you may just have a heart attack! 

Have you ever seen these Twilight movies? Are you a fan? Have you seen any amazing movies lately that you recommend others see?

Do you know what’s scarier than The Thing, The Exorcist, Poltergeist and The Shining… Even when you watch ALL of these movies back to back in a haunted cemetery on Halloween night with wind chills creeping through your jacket and strange noises coming from the trees near by?

Baby Your Breasts

Ah ha ha ha! The title of this blog post sounds like I am about to talk about celebrities breast feeding their newborns!

(PS: did you see the name of Uma Thurman‘s new baby… Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson… I just went cross-eyed.)

While I have definitely come across a few too many pictures of celebs… Ahem, Gwen Stefani (you totally clicked on that link, you pervert! LOL)… Letting their children suck away, like they would a sugar laden lollipop, in public no less, that is NOT what this post is about!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month if you weren’t already aware… (really, all months should be though)

And roughly 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Gentlemen, don’t think this type of cancer discriminates based on sex, you guys too have a 1 in 1,000 chance of developing the cancer. (For more statistics on breast cancer, click here).

Obviously breast cancer is no laughing matter. The only time breasts are actually a laughing matter are when they look like this…

Guess Who?!

Alright stop laughing for a second so you can take a minute to remember those who have be affected by breast cancer, whether it be you, a loved one, a friend, celebrity…

Here are a few celebrities who have been hit with the cancer, yet were strong enough to combat the intruder!

Christina Applegate

Sheryl Crow

Giuliana Rancic

Suzanne Somers

Cynthia Nixon

 Richard Roundtree (see, men are affected too!)

There are so many more celebrities that have been affected and have beaten the disease, which should give all those who may be struggling or know someone who is struggling hope!

It’s time to baby your breasts! In order to do so… follow these preventative measures!

How To Ward Off Vampires

I was sitting in Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s kitchen watching her stir a vat of cabbage soup the other day when she revealed a bit of inside scoop about her days on the set of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

She told me that her vampire ass-whooping moves (you know, the ones that motivated you to take up karate) weren’t the actual cause of “death” to the blood suckers that kept popping out from behind headstones. Instead, she told me that they all perished because of one very potent repellant that she always had “on hand”.

Sarah, I am sorry, but I am going to have to disclose your “secret” because… Well, it’s just plain stupid and everyone must know (after all, Halloween… It’s all about the prevention against vampires, unless of course… You’re any of the sexy ones from True Blood or wait, those two from The Vampire Diaries… Mmmm, YUM! 

I wouldn’t be a good friend if I wasn’t truthful, right?

Stupid Snack Attacks

I’M HUNGRY!!!!

When Mr. Hungry comes crawling on into your stomach, all you want to do is reach for a sleeve of chocolate chip cookies or Oreos, am I right?

Of course, doing this is an invitation for trans fatty acids and processed carbohydrates to enter and trash your body…

Don’t you DARE think you’re doing yourself any favors by inviting their 100-calorie counterparts to the shin-dig going on in your stomach instead… They are just as horrendous as the fully loaded originals … To find out why, check out the latest episode of GiGi Eats Groceries!

Mr. Hungry… SUCK IT!
