Take 5-->> Bikram Yoga

Bikram Yoga or Hot Yoga is a series of 26 yoga poses done in a room, usually maintained at a temperature of 100-105 degrees. This temperature promotes a massive amount of sweat which rids the body of toxins. It also makes the body very warm, and more flexible.

So I am 2 classes into the Bikram 30 days for $30 challenge and well, not sure if you would call it taking 5, it's more like...I mean I don't really know what it is like but that room is hotter than July and I am doing it!
I have taking my body through a lot in a year that marked my 34th year on earth, and included a move from the west to the east coast. I have partied and socialized and eaten whatever I have wanted and am feeling the effects are not exercising or eating like I should. I am going to use this time just before the new year to detox my mind body and spirit in an effort to honor the hard work that was done, and usher in a fresh 365 days to go out and hit it a little, harder, faster, bigger and badder;-)
And yeah, I can totally do this pose!

How T-->> Tipping

I love it! Finally a full on guide to tipping that extra hand that was just extended to you via a delivery or getting your bags at the airport. I was signing into my Yahoo! account when I came across, well, these tips!

Base Pay per Hour: $7.30
Tips per Hour: $10.30
Percent of Total Hourly Income in Tips: 59%

Fortunately for this service provider, we all tend to get a little more generous as the night goes on. But, it's a good thing when you consider that bartenders are getting the majority of their income from the extra dollars we place on the bar. Typical tip: 10-15 percent of the bar bill.
In general, including at an open bar, I put down $1 for every drink every time.

Base Pay per Hour: $4.60
Tips per Hour: $9.90
Percent of Total Hourly Income in Tips: 68%

Wow, nearly 70 percent of your waiter's income is based on that tip that you give. So, if you think that a bottle of wine would make a nice addition to your steak dinner, be ready to pay the service charge along with it. Typical tip: 15-20 percent of the bill, 20 percent at fine restaurants or if you have a large group.
Don't be a douche and act like you don't have to tip your waitstaff. Unless they totally ignored your needs, or got your order really wrong, tip! Not only does the waiter/waitress have to report their tips for taxes, they sometimes have to share with their Busboy. And at minimum wages.

Base Pay per Hour: $9.90
Tips per Hour: $3.50
Percent of Total Hourly Income in Tips: 26%

Oh, if you could only get that perfect cut and color before those annual holiday get-togethers. You can! Just remember that your hairstylist relies on you to provide nearly 30 percent of their income. Typical tip: 15 percent of the total.
have always been confused on this one cause I think you are supposed to tip the shampoo girl a few bucks and then if your stylist is the owner you don't have to tip.

Log onto Yahoo! Hot Jobs for several more helpful tipping tips;-)
