There are lots of great apps for doing this on your phone, I use CalorieCount.com. I've used it for years on my PC, but I got a new phone just before the holidays that's superfast and easy to use and so I put the CalorieCount app to the test.

Some unseasonably warm temps of late have given me the spring "bug". I think I'm going to start my 2-a-day sessions (I ran a little in the morning and again at night). I was amazed at how much harder it was to do the same run in the evening and e...

I'm more apt to leave a comment or stop by and say Hello and this is a great place to do it! <BR> <BR> How was your day? Plans for the week? Pop in and share it!

Starting a new training plan? This is the time of year when I get back into the weight lifting and step up the cardio (so I can survive the holidays!).

Our Achilles heel! <BR> <BR> Whether it's giving up/modifying an old habit or routine or trying to create a new one, habits and unhealthy routines can wreak havoc on our long and short term goals-it's a bear to break the cycle!

Me either, at least not until now. We don't think about it much since they don't seem to move as much, take the hits or seem to exert as much to play the game. But I thought it would be interesting to know more about the recommendations from team nutritionists so I searched around a bit and found a few interesting tidbits, one from a former Reds Nutrition Consultant, Dawn Weatherwax. It should not be a suprise that what is r...

I do go watch the Tennessee Smokes Chicago's farm club and this year I want to go when they play the Chattanooga double A Reds team. I use to go to watch the reds as a kid at Crossly Field and was a freshmen when Riverfront opened.
