This past week we had our third FIT Challenge at NOMs in Sandusky, which is FIT Challenger Leah Collins’ home turf.   I had a good time catching up with Leah and witnessing the spin bike she writes about; I must say it is pretty cool.   The challenge was a timed sprint: pick up a weight, run...

I do believe I have plateaued. The past two weeks, no matter what I've done, my weight has not changed. Annoying! At least it's not going up, though. The new Helix machine is a pain in the butt. I get on there and feel it immediately. It makes me dizzy because it's a swaying motion. Side to side...

If you think all nuts are the same, you are in for a nice surprise. Pecans are an especially delicious, versatile and healthful nut that you should be eating — as long as you’re not allergic to nuts.
