How Much Money Do You Waste On Supplements?

Low Calories

As I sit here licking my lips from the peanut butter and jelly sandwich I just devoured (hey, even fitness studs like me — NOT!!! — have breakdowns every now and then), I’m going to pick on an e-mail I received today from my favorite coffeehouse.  They shall remain nameless simply because I’m going to […]

What’s Your Greatest Health or Fitness Challenge?

January is typically the time for new beginnings and lofty goals.  Often, they include some “get healthy” resolution. “Lose 20 pounds!” “Eat better.” “Work out regularly.” “Use the gym membership I just bought.” Run 10 miles every week.” Did you set a new year’s health or fitness goal?  We’re one week into the new year.  […]
