    Metatarsalgia PLEASE HELP...FREAKING OUT!

    Sorry, can't help with a shoe recommendation. I was diagnosed with metatarsalgia also. A simple shoe inset that the podiatrist fashioned did the trick. These are not the expensive orthodicts that people talk about. The insert relieves the pressure on the joint. This was about 5 years ago...

    At home spinning

    I'd be interested I use my road bike on a Spinervel trainer. I vary the workouts and use my ipod. I'd be interested in some variety in spinning. Maybe consider a CD/recording along the lines of CardioCoach that could be downloaded for MP3 players.

    Butts and please

    B&G Hi Cathe, We do B&G in a regular rotation - I pretty much only do your workouts for legs. Although I typically use your premixes a lot on other DVDs - on this one we do the whole thing through, but substitute the stability core work for the built-in core routine. What I like is the...

    Healthcare Rant

    mine went up too... My monthly premium cost for employer-sponsored insurance doubled also - in January it will cost me ~$110/month for my insurance. My co-pays remain the same for in-network providers (but increased for out-of-network). My sister's employer's insurance also went up ~20%. But...

    Melasma...or brown spots on face

    been bothered too! Hey Deb, I've been bothered by these brown (age?) spots too. I had a rather large one on my cheek bone that was quite prominent. I tried treating them at the demotogolist with chemical peels, freezing, laser, etc. The laser treatments helped with some of the smaller...

    funeral etiquette

    a voice of dissent Well, I disagree. Death and funerals are a natural part of life. I've attended quite a few even as a child when classmates' parents died, and when relatives or neighbors died. A funeral, unless the family requests that it be private, is for everyone in the deceased...

    Flip Flops hurting my feet

    It depends on the flip-flop I really enjoy flip-flops in the summer too. I have tendencies toward PF also. I absolutely cannot wear flimsy flip-flops - but that's true of sandals and shoewear too. However, I have some f-f where the sole is thick and they have an firm arch and I do not have...
