February, it has to be one of my favourite months. The dark days of January are finally behind us, our resolutions are long forgotten and we are living life again, inspired and excited for spring. This is usually when I update my running and exercise wardrobe, adding a few key pieces to inspire me to get training for my spring and summer races, which will be here before I know it. Full Article

Duana Names: Something Other Than Sophie

Duana Posted by Duana at February 4, 2015 16:36:14 February 4, 2015 16:36:14

Hi Duana, Like seemingly 90% of the expectant parents that write in for help I am all set with a name for one gender but not the other. I'm in need of inspiration for a classic girl's name to go with older sister Lucy Eleanor and a 3 syllable english last name beginning with B. My husband is all about Sophie and I'm all about finding something else that isn't quite so popular. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Cheat Meals

Hi Hayley! I'm wondering what your stance is on cheat meals. I found an eating plan that I like and it advises eating healthy, non-processed food Monday through Friday, then having two cheat meals on the weekends. I find it easier to cut out processed food when I know I can indulge at the end of the week. Full Article

Hi Duana, We recently found out we are pregnant with our third, due in the spring, and husband and I are pretty far apart on names this time around so we're going to need some help! We already have one of each, Evey Naomi, 7, and Johnny Struan, 6. Our surname is very Scottish, three syllable, -ay sound on the end. Full Article

Hi Duana, My husband and I are expecting our first child, a girl, in early February.  If we were having a boy, I would be emailing you for help with first names because that was quite the debate but thankfully, we settled on Colette as our daughter's name long ago. Some background on why we chose Colette- we love the fact that it's a name you don't hear very often, yet it's still very classic sounding. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Shedding body fat

Hayley Posted by Hayley at January 29, 2015 20:55:42 January 29, 2015 20:55:42

Hi Hayley, Recently I had the opportunity to use a "bod pod," which assessed my body fat %/age. A quick summary: I'm 30, 5'10" and weigh 156 (that goes as high as 160 on any given day depending on what I've eaten or drank, but not usually any lower than 156). I work out 4-5 times a week, usually with cardio (straight jogging 3-5 miles or doing intervals on the treadmill) and doing intermittent lifting/hiit stuff (on my own, not with a trainer). Full Article
