Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday”, the time of eating rich and fatty foods before practicing in the Christian season of Lent. The annual event dates back thousands of years and has evolved into one of the most widely celebrated holidays on a global scale. This year the official Mardi Gras will be taking place on March 5th, but celebrations will start way in advance.

Fun Facts:

  • The official colors of Mardi Gras are purple, gold, and green.
  • Mardi Gras is also known as “Pancake Day” … celebrate wisely
  • It is illegal to ride on a Mardi Gras float mask-less!

More than 150 years ago marked the first Mardi Gras celebration in Galveston, Texas. A few years later, the first large-scale celebration was held which entailed parades, masked balls, and extravagant costumes. As the years have gone by the parties have only gotten bigger and better, with one of the best only days away from now. The 108th celebration of Mardi Gras! Galveston will start this Friday, February 22 and go until March 5, 2019! Be sure to buy your tickets today so you can experience this one of a kind extravaganza.

Ice Bath vs. Cryotherapy

The tale of getting into a freezing cold ice bath after a tough workout is as old as time. Trying to ease the pain by barely dipping in your toe until you work up the courage to slowly sink down into the painful water is sure to bring back some intense memories. Most athletes will be sure to have a funny story that comes along with ice bath – or anyone who has ever attempted to work out their soreness would be able to give you the rundown. This rundown might also be followed by talks of just feeling stiff and practically immobile for the rest of the hour.

The reasons for taking ice baths are in an attempt to force the nervous system in your body to go into protective mode against the cold temperatures. Ideally, the nervous shock will lead to the thickening of blood viscosity and can eventually release endorphins to help the muscles. The not ideal situation – but also common – is during an ice bath when the overexposure causes muscle tissue damage or even worst case could potentially lead to hypothermia. Throughout the prolonged exposure period the body will just try to maintain constant temperature; danger and discomfort are inevitable after so long.

Unlike an ice bath, cryotherapy is a shorter version and is actually a dry form. The two methods are often compared but a cryotherapy session only lasts on average 3 minutes and uses non-toxic nitrogen gas to achieve the freezing temperatures. The process is painless, less severe, and there are more benefits to be reaped. Since it is a more immediate reaction, recovery procedures for the body will be triggered and directed right towards the blood flow. Blood circulation begins to improve, natural anti-inflammatories start working, and serotonin and endorphins are produced.

Overall choosing a cryotherapy session instead of sharing the water with other sweaty individuals is the more effective option. The recovery process will be accelerated after cryotherapy, leaving you to enjoy the time after feeling good and looking good.

Chick-fil-A Cow Appreciation Day

Cow Appreciation Day: Chick-fil-A

Cow Appreciation Day is on July 10th every year and is celebrated through Chick-fil-a’s across the nation. Its your chance to dress up like a cow and receive free food from one of your favorite restaurants. It’s celebrated as customer appreciation day for Chick-fil-A.

The celebration is a play on the chicken sandwich chain’s longstanding advertising campaign featuring a group of mischievous cows who encourage the masses to skip burgers and instead “Eat Mor Chikin” at Chick-fil-A.

Check out some of the photos that we took of our client’s restaurants. We absolutely love working with Chick-fil-A and being apart of the local impact that these establishments have on the community.
