“A journey of epidermic proportions”
It’s been a busy month hasn’t it? We told you once May began you were going to hear from us A LOT! 🙂 We recently took a trip to the amazing Atlantic Station and saw BODIES: The Exhibition.
We were fortunate to see real human bodies, dissected and preserved for visitors to see in a way like never before. The exhibit is open from 11am-6pm Monday through Thursday, and 11am-7pm Friday through Sunday.
After walking through the entire showcase and reading all of the excerpts and summaries I can honestly say I felt about 1 medical journal short of a physician 🙂 But that’s a good thing right? It’s good to feel empowered and know about your body. The statistics that are provided are important bits of info to note! Did you know to lose 1 pound you must burn 3,500 calories more than your body needs and vice versa if you’re trying to gain one pound? Did you also know that the lining of the stomach secretes gastric juices that break down food & mucus to protect the stomach from being digested itself? Our bodies are so amazing and capable of performing so many tasks that it’s hard to pick which ones to tell you about 🙂
But you should definitely go check out the exhibit. Once you get to Atlantic Station go to the far side where the restaurants are and take the escalator upstairs.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and we’ll have plenty of events for you to look forward to next time!
