Okay, the Ross Sisters are amazing. Watch this if you have 5 minutes. If you don't, bookmark it and watch it later. I actually remember seeing this as a young teen while home sick from school one day. It's definitely the sort of thing tha... Read more

Try and contain your excitement. No, really. People will look at you strangely if they see you jumping up and down. I mean, at least until they realize that I'm back! Work has been suffocating and my kids have been sick off and on. The easi... Read more

I've been trying to keep my calories to the bottom of my range for the past few weeks. My end-of-year resolution was to try only having sweets once a day- no mid-day Hershey's kiss, no random cookie as a snack. I still eat dessert every night, b... Read more

I am a skin-flint, penny-pinching, cheap-o. The investment of $46 in a sports bra was something I was hard-pressed to do, despite my ample chest (36D-DD). Instead, I've been doubling up on bargain-priced beauties, one racer-back and the ot... Read more

It took me years to make friends with cardio. We're pretty tight now; I run three to four times a week. I thought I'd conquered my fear of ridicule by strangers. Yesterday was a rare treat. I took a half-day at work, coming in at 1:00. ... Read more
My paternal grandmother told me...

... that if I ran, my uterus would fall out. Thank god she was wrong... about a lot of things. Ran about 2 miles this morning while pushing my 30 pound kid in a stroller and corralling my none-too-bright dog (the smart one is old and h... Read more
