    <p>I enjoy sit-ups (I've started doing 50 at a time), jumping jacks, and my husband's least favorite: pacing.</p> <p> </p> <p>When it's not too sunny and humid or rainy, my children and I take a 15-minute+ walk around the block (it's a long, curvy block, not a square block). They like to pick...

    <p>Help me! When I go out for jog/brisk run/etc after a couple of minutes my skin starts to itch like crazy! I am not even sweating and I want to rip my flesh off. It is because my fattier areas are bouncing and stretching which makes it go nuts? What can I do to make it stop?</p>
  4. Fitness and Weight Management
    <p>I have tried wraps before, you know, the kind that look like mud. They didn't do anything. My friend is part of this It Works! group and the pictures are inspiring. My question is, are they really natural and safe to use? Has anyone here tried it? I trust this group of mama's more than I...

    I'd really like to get back to exercising, and kettlebell workouts are my favorite. Convenient, can do it at home, already have the weight, plus it's such a good workout. But I'm 6 weeks pregnant. Can I go back to using the kettlebell? If so, for how long?
  9. Fitness and Weight Management
    <p>Wasn't sure where to post this. I am pregnant now with my first, and want to get a jogging stroller that I can put an infant car seat in. Sometimes I'll use it for vigorous walks, sometimes for jogging/running in the neighborhood. There aren't tons of options, but I like the BOB Revolution...

    <p>I'm not sure where to ask this question. I've been told that I have anemia, and during my period, I find that at least one leg hurts. Sometimes drinking Ensure helps. Does anyone have any other suggestions? It's not practical to stay off my feet all day as I have four children under age 8 -...

    Most of you know me as someone who writes a lot about the wonders of homeopathy. But homeopathy isn't just about using remedies to heal - it's also about staying healthy in the first place. As Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (the developer of homeopathy in the 1800s) said, one must remove "maintaining...

    <p>Spring brings a sense of renewal in a way similar to the passing of an old year.  We are inspired to start fresh with positive habits with an energy that radiates from the strengthening of the sun to it's acme in June.  It infuses our heart center with joy and purpose.</p> <p> </p> <p>With...

    <p>I just wanted to share my success story here because I wish I had known about rebounding when I was a new mother! I think it would have made a huge difference. I had always been a jogger, but that just didn't work once I had a baby. We lived in a small row house, and didn't have room for a...
