I've seen this experiment done on various websites and blogs over the years, but as it has a valid point, I thought I'd share it in case you haven't seen it. Plus, I just saw a re-run of Oprah that talked about the documentary Food, Inc. On the show, author Michael Pollan (who co-starred in the …

While we do have beauty content on this site, beauty is not exactly our highest priority. We're more about the sore muscles and the sweat around here. Nevertheless, when Daily Glow asked for our thoughts on looking great while staying fit, we had some opinions (shocker!). Here's just a …

High Ho the Cherry

02

Whenever I see the word "diet", my eyeballs naturally gravitate towards the words "die" and my butt begins to twitch. I'm not much on hearing you can't have this or that. As soon as you tell me I can't have the cookie, I want the cookie...And I don't even crave cookies, dang it! Lucky for me, …

Holy Rollin’

GospelAerobics
