Double Dog Duty

At FBG central, we're all about fitting activity into our daily lives. But sometimes a real workout just doesn’t fit in the day-job-plus-blogging schedule. On those days, I try to add some activity in, whether it’s 10 minutes of weight training, stretching while watching television, parking farther …

What’s Your Fave Halloween Treat?

With Hallow's Eve just a mere two weeks away, I can only think of one thing: candy. (Dressing up as a witch and scaring young children takes a close second.) While I don't recommend a full-outsugar binge (been there, done that and you will feel like hell if you do, too), the FBGs do preach all …

★FitStars: An Interview with Hungry Girl

Erin and I have been Hungry Girl fans for awhile, and we were totally geeked when Lisa Lillien agreed to do an interview with us. Seriously, Tofu Shiratakinoodles are like family to me now that I've tried them, and it's all because of Lisa. For those of you who don't know Lisa, you must be living …

Turbo Jammin’

We've received a few requests over at FBG headquarters to review Turbo Jam. And, when the people speak, we answer. Well, unless we don't know the answer, and then we try really hard to ask someone who does. Promise. The kind people at Beachbody sent me two Turbo Jam DVDs, a Turbo Results …

Whether it's to the grocery store, on the elliptical or to bounce around my living room doing a DVD, my …

The Curse of Fast-Food Karma

Is there such a thing as fast-food karma? 'Cause if so, I'm screwed. On a recent road trip, I did something that I hadn't done in years: I went in to a McDonald's to eat dinner. While I do frequent McD's drive-thrus for the occasional vanilla cone, coffee or even a salad to take back to the …

What’s Your Favorite Wearable Workout Brand?

Sometimes, only name brands cut it. Like grape jelly, for example. Welch's or Smuckers are really the only way to go. Store brands have a weirdness in consistency. When it comes to workout gear, I swing both ways. I have a wide catalog of name-brands in my workout wear inventory. I also have a lot …

He’s Richard…

Say what you will about Richard Simmons, but ever since I reviewed one of his DVDs, I've taken a bit of liking to the sparkly king of aerobics. He doesn't take himself seriously, he really does inspire you to move (and in the videos, generally make an arse out of yourself—in a good way,of course), …
