I always enjoy the generational proﬁles where researchers tell us about ourselves, our social habits and values based on the generation to which we were born. I ﬁnd them thought-provoking and often incredibly insightful. These threads can help us better understand each other and our impact on economic and social trends. Consider the Millennials (born after 1980), some of whom are young adults now entering the work place as recent high school and college graduates. According to Pew Research Center, they are “conﬁdent, self-expressive, liberal, upbeat and open to change.” They are also on track “to become the most educated generation in American history.” Technology is integrated into their professional and personal lives like no other generation. At this time of year, they step out into the world. While we love the graduation clichés that the world is full of promise and opportunity, it can also be a scary place. Unemployment for this generation is incredibly high and so is the cost of higher education. Do you get a specialized skilled degree, go into the military or get a broad-based liberal arts education? It’s too costly to make the wrong decision. If you strip all the worries away, there are some enduring tenants to success. Work hard. Work smart. Care about what you do. Do great work. Take advantage of the opportunities presented to you. At a recent luncheon, Bobby Hitt, South Carolina Secretary of Commerce, former newspaper man and BMW executive, told a story about BMW’s 1992 decision to locate in the Upstate. In South Carolina they found a skilled workforce ready to work and citizens that took great pride in their community. BMW knew that combining skill and pride would give them a workforce of craftsmen. At the end of the day, don’t we all want to be craftsmen – our hearts and our hands coming together to make our community a better place. For those reasons, I am so impressed by Phoencia Hughes, our featured woman this month. While she may be just stepping out into her own, her future is incredibly bright and so is ours as we follow her lead.

High School Senior Phonecia Hughes Exempliﬁes the New Ideal in Girl Scouting
By: Heather Dawkins Stalker, special to Jolie
Spring Valley High School senior Phonecia Hughes has plenty of interesting extra-curricular activities to list on her college applications. She plays the piano and sings in gospel choir. She is a dancer, is in Beta Club and the National Honor Society, and has served as House Manager for her school’s talent show. But at the top of her list of accomplishments is something a bit atypical for high schoolers. Phonecia is a Girl Scout. Many people might consider cookie-selling and s’mores-assembling to be endeavors any texting, mascara-wearing teen would have long outgrown. But this is a misperception, says Phonecia. “People don’t realize there’s a whole other side to Girl Scouts for older girls.” Phonecia admits that she has sometimes been embarrassed when peers, as well as adults, ask “You’re still a Girl Scout? Aren’t you a little old for that?” And she says she has gotten “a lot of stares” when wearing her scouting sash in public. “But my mom was very insistent about me sticking with Girl Scouts,” she recalls. So, following Mom’s advice, Phonecia, as a high school senior, is “still a Girl Scout.” And not just any Girl Scout. Last spring, she became one of the elite 6 percent of girls in Girl Scouting nationwide who has earned the Girl Scout Gold Award, the organization’s highest honor which is often compared to the coveted Boy Scouts’ Eagle Award. Achieving the Gold Award requires a minimum of 80 hours to develop and implement a community service project. (Phonecia completed 121.) Kim Hutzell, President/CEO, Girl Scouts of South Carolina – Mountains to Midlands states, “A qualifying project is more than a good service project—it encompasses organizational, leadership and networking skills, all of which will serve her in her future endeavors

academically, and in her career, and will set the foundation for a lifetime of active service to her community.” Phonecia chose to champion the cause of child abuse. “I felt this issue wasn’t receiving enough attention in our area,” she says, not-
ing that she had trouble ﬁnding professionals to serve on the advisory committee required for her project. “I was looking in the phone book, and there aren’t that many agencies in Richland County. That’s what made me really go for it.”

6 Jolie Magazine | June 2011
Phonecia decided to host a child abuse seminar at her church, Second Calvary Baptist, in Columbia. She dubbed her event “No Excuse for Child Abuse” and set about promoting it on the radio, through ﬂiers she sent to day cares and schools and through word of mouth. She also solicited donations for the seminar from businesses and individuals. Thirty-ﬁve people attended the event, which featured classes on the dangers of child abuse for adults and children, some led by Columbia’s Nurturing Center. It was a success. Not only did the seminar participants learn a lot, but Phonecia did, as well. “I realized how much work it takes to plan a community event,” she says, noting that the biggest challenge was ﬁnding adults to help. “Because I was a high school student, people thought I wasn’t serious about [the cause] and would possibly be wasting their time.” But Phonecia persisted. And, to succeed, she capitalized on what she considers to be her generation’s unique strength—adeptness in technology. “Getting to the person was the hardest part,” she says. “You can call and call and call; but I found that calling doesn’t help much. It’s much faster to get a response through e-mail.”

Though older generations sometimes lament today’s teenagers’ obsession with texting and social networking, Phonecia sees it as a strength. “We are the technology generation. Everything is computers, cell phones, . . . . We’re very quick and very technological. We know how to use things and how to get things done and how to look professional with it.” While Phonecia admits that technology can also be “a distraction,” Mom Penelope Hughes says that has never been a problem for Phonecia. “Phonecia’s a different type of child. She’s project oriented and manages her time really well. We’ve never had to take the phone away because she was using it too much or anything like that.” The youngest of four, Phonecia has grown up in a loving environment that has helped her become the caring person she is. “My parents have been my backbone. They have always been there for me and been very supportive,” she says. She has also been nurtured by the second family she has found through Scouting. “I love spending time with the girls,” she says. “I love getting outdoors and being active and meeting people. And as much of a girly-girl as I am, I love camping.” Phonecia also enjoys what she calls the “more formal functions” of Girl Scouting. She has gained experience as a public speaker— speaking at the Girl Scouts’ Women of Distinction Gala Event and serving as the emcee for other meetings and ceremonies. She even emceed the 2011 Gold and Silver Award Reception, where she helped present the Girl Scout Gold Awards to this year’s recipients, including Zoe Louise Ayers and Candice Johnson from

“The Other Side of Girl Scouting”
Susan Schneider, Director of Public Relations and Advocacy for the Girl Scouts of South Carolina – Mountains to Midlands, , says people often think of the “three C’s” when they think of Girl Scouting—“cookies, crafts and camping.” But Girl Scouting is so much more these days. “It’s not your mother’s Girl Scouts,” she says. Three years ago, Girl Scouts of the USA revamped the organization’s programs “with a strengthened focus on leadership in the areas girls are most interested,” Schneider says. These include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math); Business Enterprise; Healthy Living (including topics like healthy media images, bullying and eating disorders), Outdoor Education (moving beyond the traditional swimming and horseback riding to include things like zip lines and kayaking) and the Arts. Towards this end, Girl Scouts of South Carolina – Mountains to Midlands has purchased the former South Carolina Department of Agriculture laboratory building in the Vista area of downtown Columbia. They will transform it into a state-of-the-art, cutting edge Leadership Center for Girls. “We plan to offer a more contemporary leadership experience,” Schneider says.
Columbia. “I just can’t say enough about the inspiration that Phonecia has been for those of us who have worked with her,” says Susan Schneider, who serves as Director of Public Relations and Advocacy for the Council. “She is so balanced and solid as a human being. You just know she’s going to go far.” Though Phonecia will certainly go “far” metaphorically, physically, she plans to stay close to home next year, attending the University of South Carolina as a biology major. Her eventual goal is to enter the ﬁeld of optometry. Phonecia feels blessed to have the opportunity to further her education since ﬁnding ways to pay for education is a challenge these days. “With the economy the way it is right now, it’s so expensive to go to school,” she says. In the meantime, Phonecia will serve as a summer intern with real estate brokerage ﬁrm C.B. Richard Ellis—an opportunity she got through networking at Girl Scout events. Even while in college, Phonecia plans to continue Girl Scouting through the Campus Girl Scouts program, in which she will retain her membership while serving as assistant leader for a local troop. Phonecia will encourage other young girls to stick with Girl Scouts , just as her mother did for her. She may even mentor another to follow in her footsteps and achieve the Gold Award. But most of all, she will help girls see that Girl Scout is about more than cookies and campﬁres. “I’ve been a Girl Scout since Kindergarten, and starting at a young age, I have learned the importance of helping others and how to treat others with respect. I’ve learned empathy.” And that lesson is worth its weight in Gold Awards.
Girl Scouts of South CarolinaMountain to Midlands
Honors 33 Gold Award Recipients
Thirty-three high achieving Girl Scouts were honored at Presbyterian College on Sunday, May 15, 2011, for earning the prestigious Gold Award. The honorees represent 18 troops from across the council’s 22-county region throughout the Midlands and Upstate region. Of those, two were from Columbia: Zoe Louise Ayers and Candice Johnson. This is the highest award that a Girl Scout Senior or Ambassador in grades 9-12 may earn. On average, these hard-working young leaders completed a minimum of 80 hours each to meet all the requirements needed to earn this award. For Zoe Ayers’ service project, she stocked the new kitchen at her church, Union United Methodist Church, with the necessary small wares needed for operation so it could be better used for missions. She also made a healthy meal and delivered presentations on healthy eating to the church’s single-parent families. She is the daughter of Mandy and Charles Ayers. Her project advisor was Renee Hope. Candice Johnson conducted a workshop for her project at M.L. King Park to teach children, ages 8 – 11, how to produce a video. Her hope is that this new skill will help the students to creatively express themselves. She is the daughter of Marilyn Johnson and Ronald Thompson and her troop leader was Marilyn Johnson. Noting that approximately 80 percent of current women business owners and 59 percent of female U.S. Senators were Girl Scouts, Kim Hutzell, President/CEO of Girl Scouts of South Carolina – Mountains to Midlands stated, “A Girl Scout Gold Award project is more than a good service project. It encompasses organizational, leadership, and networking skills, all of which will serve her in future endeavors academically and in her career, and will set the foundation for a lifetime of active service to her community.” The program also honored 142 Silver Award achievers. This is the highest honor to earn for girls, ages 11 – 14, or in grades 6 – 9. It recognizes their outstanding efforts to improve their own lives and the lives of others. The require-

ments for this award are designed to strengthen each girl’s leadership skills, encourage her to explore career opportunities and to make a commitment to self-improvement. Having evolved from a long line of elite Girl Scout awards, going back as far as 1916, and previously known as the Golden Eagle of Merit, then the Golden Eaglet, First Class and Curved Bar, the Gold Award was ﬁrst earned in 1980. Last year, approximately 6percent of
Girl Scouts around the nation received the Girl Scout Gold Award. Its respect is demonstrated by the fact that more than 100 U.S. colleges and universities and numerous national organizations and nonproﬁt agencies offer scholarships speciﬁcally for Girl Scout Gold Award recipients. In addition, an 18-year-old entering military service begins at a higher pay grade if she has earned this honor.

Non-surgical Cosmetic Therapy:
Exilis gives you results without invasive procedures
12 Jolie Magazine | June 2011
By: Emily Folsom Fernandez
We all want to look our best, especially at those big events like our college reunion or our cousin’s wedding. When the guest list promises to be full of people we haven’t seen in years, we inevitably begin thinking about the impression we want to make. Have I aged well since the last time I saw him? Will they notice my laugh lines are more deeply deﬁned? What about the tummy that won’t go away after having my children? Diet and exercise are always the best way to remove excessive fat from anywhere on the body. However, despite valiant efforts, there may be stubborn areas that just won’t go away. There are established cosmetic procedures such as Liposuction and the more recent Laser Lipolysis which can permanently remove stubborn fat deposits in an ofﬁce setting requiring only local anesthesia. Very recently, a totally non-invasive form of treatment for fat volume reduction and body contouring has become available. This device is called Exilis. Exilis is a non-invasive, non-surgical aesthetic treatment that uses radio frequencies to improve skin density and appearance (that’s right - it smoothes wrinkles!). It sends heat deep into the tissue in a very centralized location while ensuring comfort, safety and control. It delivers radio frequency energy to the skin and underlining fat, heating the tissue to a degree that effectively reduces wrinkles, tightens fat, and shrinks the fat cells. Exilis can target those fatty deposit-problem areas that can be difﬁcult to affect through diet and exercise – the tops of the thighs, upper and lower abdomen, back of arms, bra areas and other problem areas that can be difﬁcult to transform through diet and exercise. It can also be used to treat your face. Unlike plastic surgery there is no recovery time involved. Usually within the ﬁrst couple of treatments people begin to see a noticeable improvement. Patients feel a deep heating sensation and some have described to be similar to a hot stone massage. The advanced technology means the skin or tissue does not burn. Typically this is accomplished in four 30-minute treatments usually one week apart. This technique is considerably less expensive ($1,600) than liposuction ($3,000-$4,000). Angela Heaton, an aesthetician with the Hutchinson Center of Aesthetic Medicine, has been impressed with Exilis. “It is fast. It is comfortable. It provides noticeable results. There are no post-treatment pain medications. We are very fortunate to provide this service to our patients.” Exilis is FDA cleared in the United States for the primary treatment of dermatology and general surgical procedures for non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and rhytids. Currently Dr. Manly Hutchinson, MD at Hutchinson Center for Aesthetic Medicine is the only provider in the Midlands area.

Estimated Expiration Dates For Common Vanity Products
By: Debra D. Bass, McClatchy-Tribune Information Service (MCT)
If you have bathroom clutter, you have a lot of ineffective products that you’d be better off without. Stop wasting your money by letting products expire. Cosmetics are not required by law to have expiration dates, and the guidelines from experts vary. Many products do have expiration dates printed on the packaging, but if you don’t store your products at optimal temperatures and properly sealed after each use, they may expire long before that. There might also be an open-jar symbol with a number of months next to it on your containers. Once you open the product, you have this many months of full potency. And, no, using 5-year-old lotion probably won’t harm you, but if you’re looking to cull a glut of products, aged bottles are the best place to start. The dates below are loose guidelines, but note that the more a product is exposed to air and potential bacteria, the shorter its lifespan. Powders last longer than liquids, and liquids in pumps stay fresher longer than liquids in jars. Always handle the product after cleaning your hands, and anything that directly touches your skin should be cleaned or replaced regularly, e.g., brushes, cosmetic sponges, eyeliner tips, mascara wands and lip liner.
• Anti-aging and acne treatments: Three months to a year. Serums with antioxidants can turn quickly; be on the lookout for any changes in color. • Eye cream: Unopened three years and one year after ﬁrst use. • Body lotion: One year if opened and two to three years if unopened. The pump containers tend to stay fresh longest. • Shampoo, conditioner and shower gel: About three years. • Bath oil: One year to use up that gorgeous bottle with the lavender stems; don’t delay. • Sunscreen: Check the package for an expiration date, but if you still have last year’s opened bottle of sunscreen, you should abandon it. Aim to use it up within six months of ﬁrst use; if you don’t, you’re probably not using it enough. • Mascara and liquid eyeliner: Three to four months once you start using it. Two years if unopened.
• Eye and lip pencils: Three to ﬁve years. Sharpen them before each use as a way to preserve them and keep them clean, or dab them on a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol. • Lipstick and gloss: Two to three years unopened or 18 months after ﬁrst use. • Foundation and concealer: About two years for oil-based and up to three years for water-based if unopened. Most of these products are designed to last up to a year, so if you don’t use it up, chances are you didn’t love it anyway. You should aim to use them
20 Jolie Magazine | June 2011
up within about six months after ﬁrst use. • Blush/bronzer: About 18 months after ﬁrst use. • Perfume: About two years.To get more mileage out of a perfume, resist the temptation to display a pretty bottle on your vanity. Instead, stash it away in a cool, dark place. Or if you get a new scent that you can’t ﬁt into your rotation, keep it in its box and store it in your refrigerator. • Nail polish: One year. • Nail-polish remover: Good indeﬁnitely. • Hairstyling products: Three to ﬁve years. Most are alcohol-based, which helps preserve the formula. Hair gel and spray typically last two to three years. • Bar soap: Up to three years. • Shaving cream: About two years.
• Deodorant: Up to two years, but antiperspirants should have an expiration date. • Body bleaches and depilatories: Up to two years unopened or six months after ﬁrst use. • Anything with SPF: Should have an expiration date. All others, up to three years. • Lip balm: Good up to ﬁve years unopened and one to three years after ﬁrst use. • Mouthwash: Three years from manufacture date. • Rubbing alcohol: At least three years. • Tooth-whitening strips: About 13 months. • Cream eye shadow: Six months after ﬁrst use. • Cream blush: One year after ﬁrst use. • Facial moisturizer: One year after ﬁrst use.

Change your skin care for when the heat is on
By: Debra D. Bass, McClatchy-Tribune Information Service (MCT)
As we ﬁnally get a chance to bask in the sunshine, we also get to worry about putting our best face forward. It doesn’t take a lot of effort, but it tends to require a different strategy during warmer months. So just in case you’re wondering how best to brave the blessing of high humidity and even higher temperatures, here are some suggestions for your skin-care routine.
2. Shine control.
Blotting paper is great to carry in your purse, but if you start the day with Origins Zero Oil, instant matte ﬁnish for shiny places ($12.50) at Dillard’s (dillards.com), you’ll get a head start on the shine prevention. It’s a tiny tube that makes a big impact.
comes from the mascaras that form little tubes around your lashes.They can be removed with cleanser and water, but they do not smudge or smear after they dry. Blinc ($24) at Sephora (sephora.com) or L’Oreal Double Extend Lash Extension Effect Mascara ($8.99) at Target offer options to experience the tube technology.
1. Start with reassessing the moisturizers and serums you apply after washing your face morning and night.
You might need to use something lighter or at least less layers for day. But don’t skip the SPF (sun protection factor) with UVB and UVA (ultraviolet radiation bands) protection.
3. Raccoon no more.
There are many, many mascaras with many, many different formulas, wands and claims, but the greatest innovation
4. Brows are tricky,
and unless you are part of an elite group, you could probably use an item like the It Cosmetics Brow Power universal brow pencil ($24) at CVS (cvs.com). The oval-tipped pencil makes it
22 Jolie Magazine | June 2011
easier to sculpt more realistic brows, use it lightly for fair skin and apply a ﬁrmer hand for darker skin, but really, it’s a matter of gentle brush strokes, not lines. Fill in the gaps, and if you’ve overplucked, create new volume. This season, big brows are back.
7. Eyes have it.
There’s a lot of hype about the delicate skin of the eye, and there’s a good reason. If you’re prone to “looking tired,” the right eye gel can be your secret weapon. Creams can be great moisturizers as well, but gels might be a better weight for warm weather (you’ll have to gauge your own skin). Even if you use concealer, you want to make sure the skin around your eyes is well-hydrated. Look for something that works and get two — one for your bathroom counter and one for your purse. A little cooling eye gel can be a nice afternoon pick-me-up, and it usually won’t disrupt your makeup if you dab lightly, but if you wear a heavy foundation be careful. Consider something soothing and refreshing like Ole Henriksen’s Ultimate Lift Eye Gel ($38) at Sephora or Alba Botanica Green Tea Eye Gel ($17) at Target and Walmart.
5. Midday refresher:
Dickinson’s makes towelettes ($4 at drugstores) wet with their gentle witch hazel toner that are a great way to refresh your skin if you’re not wearing foundation. Otherwise consider one of the water spritzes. This is also a good time to reapply your moisturizing sunblock.
6. Get your glow.
A light dust of bronzer can go a long way to making you feel warm-weather ready. Invest in a big ﬂuffy brush like Burberry’s beauty brush, made especially for its warm glow bronzers ($52) at Nordstrom (Nordstrom. com) or a less expensive kabuki brush like a tractable one from EcoTools ($6) at drugstores that you can pop in your purse for touch-ups.

ed 5 Motivation Myths bunk e D
By: Hollis Templeton, McClatchy-Tribune Information Service (MCT)
Calories in, calories out—in theory, losing weight should be that simple. But we’re going to venture a guess that the reason two thirds of Americans are classiﬁed as overweight or obese isn’t because they can’t do basic math. Age, genetics, hormones and the big one—a lack of will power—better explain the disconnect between wanting to lose weight and actually doing it. In fact, while 84 percent of people claim they’re trying to take better care of their health today than just a few years ago, 59 percent of people reported they don’t have the will power to change their habits, according to a recent survey by The Futures Company. Lack of will power is the number one barrier preventing Americans from living healthier lifestyles, ranking higher than a lack of money, time, desire and a perceived lack of need, according to the survey. So what’s the secret to propelling yourself from an “ah-ha” moment to reaching a healthy weight? It’s all about the day-to-day. Focusing on lifestyle changes, heeding the right how-to advice and ﬁnding support from a group of like-minded peers will help you stay on track better than if you focused on the impetus (a scary obesity poster in the subway) or the end result (ﬁtting
into your skinny jeans again). Here, we sift through motivation research and enlist the help of Andy Core, an exercise physiologist, motivational speaker and author of the forthcoming book “Why Don’t I Do What I Know That I Should?,” to muddle through ﬁve motivation misconceptions—and provide the help you need to stay on track.
scientists analyzed data from 358 reports on the success rates of interventions designed to increase physical activity among 99,000 healthy adults, programs that focused on behavior change—feedback, goal setting, calorie and weight tracking and exercise recommendations—were better predictors of success than cognitive-based approaches, those that focused on education and changing attitudes. Myth 2:The end result is what matters. The Reality: Enjoying the path to success is what helps you reach it. You know the Chinese proverb “The journey is the reward,” but you’ve probably never thought of it in terms of losing weight. The reward typically associated with a diet and exercise plan is watching your goal weight calibrate on the bathroom scale. But according to Core, thinking ahead to that magical day isn’t enough to motivate you to get there. “Starting with the end in mind is the fast track to failure in a health-improvement program,” he says. “You want to have goals, but your daily focus should be on gaining gratiﬁcation from checking the box.” “Checking the box” could mean ﬁnishing a workout, drinking eight glasses of water in a given day or dedicating 10 minutes in the evening to laying out your gym clothes and making a healthy lunch for the next day, says Core. The important thing is that it becomes a positive experience that you want to repeat, he says, adding that setting up healthy lifestyle patterns helps you build the momentum necessary to reach a weight loss goal.
Myth 1: Knowledge is power. The Reality: Information can be ineffective if you don’t know how to apply it. You’re overweight. And if you don’t lose weight, you’re putting yourself at risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes and early death. The message is clear and it’s one that’s been hammered into our heads via every medium available. Still, even the most scientiﬁcally sound PSAs or ﬂashiest billboards are void of a vital piece of information—how one actually goes about losing weight. “Knowledge without application is guilt-inducing,” says Core, adding that over time, information overload can actually become demotivating. “In a way, it’s better not to know than to know and to not do,” he says. A better solution: “If you really want to move people—busy, working people—to change, you need to use direction versus information,” says Core. Research suggests that directions are more motivating than cold hard facts. When University of Missouri

In a Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise study, 136 women between the ages of 44 and 55 with BMIs of 25 to 38 took part in a weight loss program focused on adopting small changes in their diet and exercise patterns. Researchers made speciﬁc recommendations for daily caloric intake and exercise frequency and monitored participants’ weight on a weekly basis. After 4 months, the women had lost 6.2 percent of their body weight, on average, and reported being highly motivated by the improvements in mood, increased energy levels, and better sleep quality that resulted from increased exercise. Study authors concluded that feelings of enjoyment and interest in physical activity helped explain the effectiveness of the intervention beyond seeing a lower number on the scale. Myth 3: I am my own biggest motivator. The Reality: Social support is essential to reaching a weight loss goal. You could have all the gumption in the world, but it won’t get you far if you’re going at weight loss alone—or from inside a circle of friends who make unhealthy decisions, says Core. Research suggests that having obese friends can make you gain weight, too— and that your peers can help you lose weight or maintain weight loss. The trick to using social support to your advantage is surrounding yourself with the right company. “Ask yourself; Are my family and friends encouragers, or are they part of the problem?” Core suggests. Think about
your coworkers, too. “Working adults spend most of their waking hours at the ofﬁce, so if the workplace doesn’t have your back, that’s a big roadblock to sustaining motivation,” says Core. And don’t forget about your online support structure. In a study published in the International Journal of Medical Informatics, researchers at University of Texas Medical School at Houston surveyed 193 members of the SparkPeople online weight loss community and found that 88 percent of respondents used the site for encouragement and motivation, while 59 percent used it as a source of information and 43 percent as an outlet for sharing experiences. Myth 4: Scare tactics work. The Reality: Messages that evoke strong emotion only work if you’re unaware of a threat. Scare tactics—from in-your-face ads depicting the consequences of obesity to a doctor’s chiding for your through-theroof cholesterol—will make your stomach churn, but they’re not always effective at promoting a change in behavior, especially if you’re overweight and understand that unhealthy food and drink choices are part of the reason why. “If people are already aware—and most are hammered with information—it’s harassment at best and demotivation at worst,” says Core, explaining that guilt is not an effective motivator. “If the choice to change is pressured upon you by other people, then the long-term success rate is really slim,” he says. Consumers tend to agree. When researchers asked 142 obese adults about their opinions on things like public health initiatives, media campaigns, commercial diets and ﬁtness programs for a survey published in the journal BMC Public Health, they found that respondents preferred interventions focused on lifestyle changes rather than those that strictly promoted weight loss and rated programs that were judgmental, stigmatizing, or shameful as least effective. In a society overloaded with information, it’s hard to control the messages coming at you (ever tried turning off a billboard?), but you can seek out the positives. Look to weight loss success stories or case studies for inspiration, suggests Core. “As a motivational speaker, it’s like a holy grail for me if I can get someone to think If they can do it, maybe I can do it, too,” he says. It’s also important to surround yourself with powerful cues that will aid in making healthy changes, says Core. These can be things like checklists on your fridge, bathroom mirror, or smartphone or photos of
yourself at a smaller size. These cues will help you stay motivated from within, says Core, explaining that dieters will be more successful in the long-term if they are fueled by self-determination and decide to make lifestyle changes without external interference. Myth 5: Failure is a sign of weakness. The Reality: Failure results from a lack of preparation or poor behavior patterns. If you hit a weight loss plateau or derail your diet over a holiday weekend, it’s not a reﬂection on your character and you shouldn’t beat yourself up over it, says Core, explaining that core values don’t drive motivation. “Most people at some point in their lives have felt motivated to live healthy,” says Core. “Those same people have also
felt unmotivated,” he adds, explaining that the two sometimes happen just days apart. “In a period of days, your core values, your metabolism, the way you were raised, and your life experiences haven’t changed.” What did change: your habits. Perhaps you stopped tracking calories or skipped a series of workouts and feel like you’ve completely killed your diet. The best way to power past a slip-up: “Think execution versus outcome,” suggests Core. “Reenergize and refocus on checking the box. Don’t focus on what good things happen if you do, or bad things happen if you don’t.” And to make weight loss goals— and mistakes—more manageable from a success/failure standpoint, don’t get too far ahead of yourself. “You don’t have to change your life; you only have to change your day,” says Core.

On the Rocks:
By: Mary Ann Anderson, McClatchy-Tribune Information Service (MCT)
Ready to ﬁre up the grill for summer? Longing for a backyard barbecue? An evening outside with friends — and depending upon your GPS position — on the verandah, porch or patio? Spring has sprung and now with graduation parties, Father’s Day and summer solstice beckoning, it’s time to think about fun cocktails for the warm days ahead. Here in the South, we still have verandahs, thank you, ma’am and sir. And on our verandahs, we still like our mint juleps, y’all. Since Woodford Reserve is smooth as silk, honey-sweet and always ends on a high note, it’s one of the best summer sippin’ bourbons around. And nothing quite says verandah — or porch or patio — like a mint julep. WOODFORD RESERVE MINT JULEP • 1 cup sugar • 1 cup water • 12 sprigs of mint • 3 ounces Woodford Reserve bourbon • 1 sprig of mint
Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a saucepan and boil for 5 minutes; do not stir. Pour over the 12 sprigs of mint in a heatproof bowl, gently crushing the mint with the back of a spoon. Chill, covered, for 8 to 10 hours. Strain, discarding the mint.You may store the syrup in the refrigerator for several weeks, preparing individual juleps as desired. For each serving, ﬁll a silver, copper, pewter or stoneware julep cup with broken or crushed ice. Add 2 tablespoons of the mint syrup and the bourbon and stir gently until the cup is frosted. Garnish with 1 sprig of mint. When I think patios, I think Florida, California, Arizona and Texas. In other words, anyplace that doesn’t have verandahs. Summer on the patio means fruity drinks, and cocktails don’t come fruitier than those made with ﬂavored vodkas. Van Gogh Pomegranate Vodka, a grain spirit from Holland, is light and easy on the palate and mixes well. With underlying notes of cranberries and green apple, it’s good with tonic or in these cocktails that help to ease off the heat on those
starry, starry nights. POMPOM • Van Gogh Pomegranate Vodka • POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice • Water Fill an ice cube tray with a mix of 50/50 juice and water, freeze over night. Place cubes in a glass and top with Van Gogh Pomegranate Vodka. Garnish with an orange wheel. POMOSA • 4 ounces sparkling wine • 1 ounce Van Gogh Pomegranate Vodka Pour chilled vodka into a ﬂute, then top with sparkling wine. Garnish with a strawberry. Back porches are perfect for growing pots of colorful hibiscus, but they’re also pretty good perches for brunching or bronzing.The hibiscusinfused Rosangel Tequila is sweet and ﬂoral-tasting, and for ﬂavored tequila it’s different and certainly unique. And any drink made with Wild
26 Jolie Magazine | June 2011
Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup can jazz up any porch party in a hurry just because they’re so perfectly pretty (and tasty!). Even though both of these recipes are heavy on ingredients, I like the Rosangel Ruby Fizz, created by mixologist Julie Reiner, and the Wild Mimosa cocktails, just because they purely sizzle for summer special occasions. ROSANGEL RUBY FIZZ • 2 ounces Rosangel Tequila • 1/2 ounce agave syrup • 1/2 ounce ruby port • 1 bar spoon pomegranate molasses • 3/4 ounce lemon juice • 1/2 ounce egg white Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a highball glass with one large ice cube.Top with club soda and garnish with a cherry. WILD MIMOSA • 1 Wild Hibiscus Flower • 1 ounce St. Germain Elderﬂower Liqueur • 1 ounce pink grapefruit juice • 1/2 ounce Wild Hibiscus Syrup • 5 ounces dry sparkling wine Place ﬂower in champagne ﬂute. Shake next three ingredients on ice and carefully strain into champagne ﬂute.Top with dry sparkling wine. Garnish with long grapefruit zest. Whether you’re on the patio, porch or verandah, you’ll like Finlandia Vodka’s newest ﬂavor introduced just in time for summer:Tangerine Fusion.Tangerines are sweet and zesty, and so is this vodka. Reminiscent of Finlandia’s Grapefruit Fusion, it’s a bit lighter and creamier than its citrusy counterpart.These ﬂavorful cocktails work well as you ﬂip the burgers and watch the ﬁreﬂies ﬂit by. FINLANDIA TANGERINE SUNBURST • 2 ounces Finlandia Tangerine Fusion • 1/2 ounce Cointreau orange liqueur • 1 ounce fresh lemon sour mix • 1 1/2 ounces fresh orange/tangerine juice • 1 1/2 ounces POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice In a highball glass, shake all ingredients with ice. Garnish with a slice of lemon and zest of orange. FINLANDIA CAIPIROSKA • 2 ounces Finlandia Tangerine Fusion • 1/2 lime, quartered • 3 Cara Cara orange wedges (a type of navel orange) or fresh seasonal fruit variations • 1 slice of green jalapeno • 1 ounce simple syrup In a rocks glass, muddle all ingredients together and serve over ice. FINLANDIA GRAND TANGERINE • 2 ounces Finlandia Tangerine Fusion • 1/2 ounce Chambord • 1 ounce fresh lemon juice • 1 ounce grapefruit juice Shake all ingredients together with ice, then strain into a martini glass. Garnish with lemon zest.

Beef Brisket Takes Patience – But It’s Worth It
By: Dave Lobeck, McClatchy-Tribune Information Service (MCT)
If you have a spare day and you want to immerse yourself in a great barbecue experience, consider giving beef brisket a try. The main ingredient required for this cut of beef is time – up to 10 hours depending on the size of the brisket. “Low and slow” is a must, producing a smoky, beefy, tender cut of meat that can be served by itself or as a brisket sandwich. Let’s ﬁrst discuss the cut. It is a bonus to have a working relationship with a butcher in your town. An entire beef brisket can weigh up to 10 pounds. If you locate an entire brisket, the “fat cap,” which is a layer of fat across the top of the brisket is a deﬁnite plus, as it helps keep the meat moist during the long cooking process. In most cases you will see only a portion of the brisket, known as the point, which is roughly four to six pounds. Choose the brisket with the most marbling of fat throughout the meat. The brisket is located above the front legs of the steer and is a piece of muscle which gets worked hard and supports a lot of weight. A low and slow cooking method melts the connective tissues in the brisket, making it tender and delicious. The cooking temperature needs to be near 225 degrees. Any warmer and the brisket will cook too quickly making it tough and dry. If you are using a kettle grill, set it up for indirect heat with 10 to 12 pieces of charcoal. If you use a liquid smoker the moisture will soften the cooking temperature. Make sure you place hickory chips on the charcoal when the charcoal is 50 percent to 60 percent gray. Let the hickory ﬂame out, then place the meat on the grill opposite the coals and place the lid on the grill or smoker. You will be adding charcoal to the kettle grill occasionally to keep the heat where it needs to be. In terms of ﬂavoring, any great beef rub works perfectly for this cut. If you have the time, rub the brisket down with your favorite beef rub the night before, wrap it in plastic wrap and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. The spices will permeate the meat. While many cooks suggest you slit the meat to help with this process, I vehemently disagree. Slicing the meat only promotes the loss of juices during the cooking process. Personally, I wrap the brisket in aluminum foil when it is 75 percent done, and then ﬁnish cooking it in the foil. By then the hickory ﬂavor will have penetrated the meat and the foil helps keep the brisket moist. The brisket is considered done at 185 to 190 degrees. If you cook it at a low temperature,
28 Jolie Magazine | June 2011
achieving this will take a lot of time, which is what you want. “Low and slow” is the key with this cut. When it is done, rest it for 30 minutes wrapped in the foil and placed in a cooler to keep it warm, then carve the meat in thin slices against the grain. Serve it by itself with your favorite barbecue sauce or as a brisket sandwich. As a Kansas City Barbecue Society judge, I can tell you the brisket is the most challenging meat for the teams in any competition. Don’t get frustrated if your ﬁrst attempt doesn’t turn out exactly the
way you expect it. That’s the fun of barbecue. It’s a cooking art which requires practice.
