  1. Hi,

    I was doing research on the Livestrong LS10.0T treadmill and it looks like it has received good reviews including yourself. I wsa wondering after 1 year of using the product, how do you like it ? I live in Toronto and it's on Sale for $800 at Canadian Tire and I would like to buy it, but want to hear some opinions before I actually buy it. Also, I'm 6 feet tall and planning to put this in the basement. How high is the treadmill running space from the ground up ?

    Please let me know!

    Thanks

  2. The treadmill has held up very well over the past year. It squeaks a little more now than it did in the beginning, but the motor still runs well and I haven't had a problem with it yet. Because of your heigh, however, I might get the larger LS13.0T. It has a longer deck which may be better for you depending on your gait. We have ours in the basement as well and we haven't had any problems with the ceiling height. My husband is 5'9" and can run at an incline comfortably. Hope this helps! :)

TOS - Thoracic Outlet Syndrome or The Only Snag?

When I was about 14 years old, I was diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS), a condition wherein excessive pressure is placed on a bundle of nerves that pass into the arm from the neck causing pain and weakness in the arm.

I was a fast pitch softball pitcher and first noticed symptoms of TOS after pitching at an all day tournament. My arm swelled to the point that I could not bend my wrist, and although it's my favorite color, it turned a very unpleasant shade of purple.

My parents took me to a specialist at Johns Hopkins Hospital, but little was known about TOS or its treatment at the time. They simply told me to remedy the situation by quitting sports. I played softball for another year after that, relinquishing the position of pitcher and taking on second base so I wouldn't have as much strain on my arm, but eventually I gave up softball all together.

Three years ago, my younger sister found she had the same problem while playing softball in high school. Unfortunatel…

Happy Birthday, Baby

A lot has happened in the three years since I regularly kept up with my blog. A lot.

My love for fitness, nutrition and CrossFit lead me down the path to training and sharing that love with others. After about a year of training, I decided I wanted even more out of life.

My husband and I happily added a new member to our family one year ago today. I had a healthy, relatively uneventful pregnancy (and continued to workout and eat healthy through the entirety of it) and my labor was everything I wanted it to be. As others around me struggle to obtain their own pregnancy and labor ideals, I realize just how blessed we were and how rare it is that everything should go according to plan, although I was completely unaware of it at the time.

Looking back over the last year, I have come to the conclusion that there are certain aspects of parenthood that people do not talk about in polite conversation. Labor being the primary culprit.

To commemorate the birth of our son, I want to share my birth s…

Boo-doir Photos

Everybody knows that the only Halloween costumes available for newlywed women are witch and sexy kitten... or slutty nurse, overexposed police officer, [other costume with lots of cleavage and a short skirt].

But what if, like me, you're a little more conservative, and your ideal Halloween costume is Cindy Lou Who. Innocent, adorable and classic. Where then do you exhibit your inner sex kitten?

About six months prior to the wedding, when I first started seeing results from the hard work and weight loss, I was talked into a boudoir photo session by a friend of mine. I have to admit, I still felt awkward and clumsy and not sexy in any way. I was really nervous about the hubster seeing me in my skivvies, but being the impressionable person I am, I let peer pressure get the best of me.

I gathered up our favorite football team's jersey (Oakland Raiders of course), some knee highs, one of his white button down shirts and some black lingerie, an apron and some cupcakes (The hubby loves …
