Summertime. If you are anything like me, you are outside enjoying everything your city has to offer.  From dawn until dusk I am swimming, paddling, hiking, riding or running and it is not uncommon to find me enjoying the sunset with a much deserved cocktail in my hand. But, why is it that as active as I am I always enter the fall heavier than I left spring? Yes, a lot of it has to do with all of the muscle building activities that I am doing but I would be fooling myself if I thought that was the only reason why my pants are tight come Labour Day. Full Article

Hi Duana, I am getting married next May, and cannot decide if I want to take my fiance's name.  He is totally supportive of whatever I want to do, as his mother didn't take his father's name (of course, they're divorced, so there's some karmic issues there), and he knows my overwhelmingly feminist attitudes about everything. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Learning to run on creaky knees

Hayley Posted by Hayley at July 16, 2014 15:18:52 July 16, 2014 15:18:52

Hi Hayley, I've never been athletic in my life, but I'd like to start running.  I can walk all day and I try to get in at least half an hour each day, but I'd like to step up my game. I have mild arthritis in my knees which has shown improvement since I started walking daily and lost weight, but it's not severe, so I don't think that should deter me. Full Article
