As far as contests go, this is a unique one: All Arlington personal in-home fitness trainer Joe Tryon wants is for you to guess how long it was between the taking of the “before” photo and the “after” picture.
The photos are of him.
“This is something I wanted to do since before I started the business,” says Tryon.
His company is called Kinematics; the former Army captain offers in-home and mobile personal training and nutrition services, and he’s offering up his own body as proof that he’s on to something with his methods.
Your fitness goals are met using his personalized exercise plans designed to meet those goals. Your experience with fitness training and schedule are all taken into account to insure success at your own pace.
Tryon knows what you’re going through: Once he left the Army and began working a desk job his discipline and fitness routines that got him through Airborne and Ranger schools took a beating, as did his body when he attempted to get back in shape. A skilled physical therapist put him back together and that’s when he gained the motivation to acquire the certifications needed to help others.
And now he’s having a contest.
In each photo he’s holding a copy of that day’s newspaper. The person who comes closest to guessing how many days elapsed between the photos wins a nifty TRX GO Suspension Trainer system, a $129.95 value, and if you don’t know what it is, you might want to sign up for a free assessment from Kinematics.

“Probing the highly imaginative, inspired mind of Teresa Oaxaca is not altogether unlike having a present-day conversation with an Old Master,” says Nashville Arts Magazine.
Here is an unusual opportunity to learn from this incredibly talented and accessible artist, at Art House 7’s two-day oil painting workshop in October. Teresa will give 2 portrait painting demonstrations for 3 hours each morning. Students will then be painting from a clothed live model. Teresa will offer individual critiques that focus on materials, techniques, process and artistic vision. You’ll get jazzed up about painting and become more confident about your abilities.
Art House 7, Two-Day Oil Painting Workshop with Teresa Oaxaca. Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. EDT $250.

Validating one’s emotions has the power to heal, transform, and empower. What Is Validation? Every human being has feelings. We all have emotions that change over time, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. The question isn’t whether we feel; it’s how we handle feelings once they arise.
Building strategies to understand emotions is essential to positive mental health, and validation is one effective skill to practice.
Emotional validation is the process of understanding, embracing, and actively listening to another person’s feelings (or your own).
Understanding someone’s emotions doesn’t necessarily mean you approve of how they are feeling or reacting to something. You can be supportive in acknowledging and validating an emotional experience without agreeing or diminishing it. Validation is a skill to learn and improve over time. It may take practice, but the effort is most certainly worth it. Emotional validation has the power to enhance interpersonal communication and foster strong relationships.
