Have you seen the Taylor Swift song "Shake it Off" mashed up with the 1988 National Aerobics Championship video? It sprung up last week and is hilarious. I was trying to find a version of this video that wouldn't self... Continue reading

Y'know, I think I'm going to count my smoothie fruit Points. I usually only add one serving of fruit -- two at most -- to my smoothies, so an extra Point or two won't kill my total for the day.

This song came on in the gym while I was doing high box steps with a medicine ball and that build-up to the bass drop happened just as I was starting to wobble on the third set. It cracked my... Continue reading
