Watching (and Changing) the Weight of the Nation (With Giveaway!)


There are days that I really miss school. Like, I miss going to class and studying and even, cough, taking exams.

Stretch it out. Credit: lululemon athletica

I’m not the biggest person on stretching—gasp! How can that be true? It’s not that I don’t believe stretching is important, but when I only have an hour to get in and out of the gym, I’d rather spend my time doing one last lift than seeing how far I can stretch. With that said, I always know when …

Review: Flabs 2 Abs (And Two Super-Goofy Dudes)


I'm not sure what I was thinking when I popped in the Flabs 2 Abs DVD. With two goofy looking dudes (look closely; there are only two guys—not four) on the cover shown lifting weights and pointing at the camera, I clearly knew I was not the target audience for this DVD. But because of said goofy …

Trying Tai Chi & Qi Gong for the First Time


Sure, I dig yoga and meditation. And most would probably consider me to be a little crunchier or more hippity-dippity than your average gal.
