Hello Duana! My husband and I are currently expecting #3.  We already have 2 girls (Elyze and Annika) and do not plan on finding out the sex of this baby.  If we have a girl I would really love to find a way to honour my mom's side of the family with her name.  The thing is that my mom has a Dutch background and Dutch female names just don't translate very well into English!  Could you decipher any magic out of "Henderika" (my mom goes by Rita), "Martje" (pronounced Mat-cha) or "Gezina" (my Oma who went by Sina). Full Article

I am not and have never been an endurance athlete. My whole life I have been a competitive athlete in sports that are more sprint based. This season I took on a new challenge with Mountain Bike Enduro Racing. These bike races entail both long climbs and quick, sprint descents. The great part is that the uphill sections are not timed, so I can ride at my own pace. Full Article

We are looking for a first name (girl or boy) for our 2nd born: FIRST NAME: SOMEONE MIDDLE NAME: CH*** (one soft Arabic syllable) LAST NAME: M*** (3 Scottish/Irish syllables) must go with his/her sister: LILY N***(one soft Arabic syllable) Some info on Baby-naming #1: We wanted a short name because of the long last name, and middle name was already decided (for my Egyptian roots). Full Article

Hayley, about six months ago I herniated a disc in my lower back (L4-L5). It's honestly been hell. An involuntary six month hiatus from the gym (and all other physical activity) has wreaked havoc on my body, just in time for summer. I've always been athletic and have had a slew of injuries but this was by far the most frustrating experience. Full Article

This will be our only kiddo, so we're feeling the pressure to get it right and we're getting kind of panicky. We're having a boy, and the one name we can agree on is Francis. Full Article

I’ve seen worse in this shiny material. You know how I feel about the shine and the silk. Here, though, it’s all about the cut and shape. My favourite shape. Loose. No cling. Not body-con. The fabric is allowed to fall on its own. That said, it looks better from the side than the front. Full Article

Hayley, My question is whether it is possible to lose weight while training for a marathon and if so, how. I am currently training for my first marathon this fall, and I am also hoping to lose 10lbs while doing so (the last of my "baby weight"). I have small babies, so time is an issue, I am on a program with a local running group that requires 3-5 runs every week with an option to cross train on one of the 5 days. Full Article

Sasha!  I've been casually dating this guy for about 7 months.  We have lots in common and have a good time together.  He's funny, warm and easygoing.  While he hasn’t outright said it, I'm getting vibes from him that he wants us to be exclusive.  I've been avoiding the discussion. Full Article
