    Found condonms in my 17 year old sons backpack (advise)

    I never searched my kids personal belongings when they were teenagers. I remember my mother doing that.....reading my diary, freaking out and getting everything wrong. I also remember my Dad defending me. I have 2 adult sons. When they were teenagers and I suspected they were sexually active...

    Learning to drive

    I learned to drive at 41 also. Same thing......always lived in urban areas so no need or place for a car. Then I moved to a small town and had to drive to go grocery shopping, kids sports and play dates etc. My DH taught me. I got my license and bought a car immediately. I found I liked...

    Cardio decline

    I can no longer do intense cardio and that includes my long time favorite step. Now it is mainly walking outside. Weights and AWT are fine but not sustained cardio. I just flake out.

    Protein shakes. Meal replacement

    Thank you for your replies. I will check my local health food store for small packets of Nutiva. I know they don't sell Isagenix. Is that only available online? I am not a big protein powder user but recently tried a friends whey powder and liked it. Usually I would buy small packets of...

    Protein shakes. Meal replacement

    I usually don't use protein powder but make smoothies or a green drink. When I bought 21 Day Fix they sent me a regular size bag of Shakeology. I liked it and used it as my lunch. Thought about doing it again as it so hot and a cold shake would be great. I have tried various powders and...

    Protein shakes. Meal replacement

    I am looking to replace lunch with a shake. Which one? I know Isogenix has been talked about here. I used Shakeology a few years back but it is very expensive. Any ideas or suggestions? I thought Cathe might have talked about Isogenix but am not sure I remembered that or just made it up...

    Books, books and more books

    Read Wolf Hall and loved it. Didn't enjoy the TV series because I couldn't understand a word they were saying. But I plan on watching it again. Love Dickens, War and Peace. And really all the classics. You can just disappear into these books. Love a good English/Irish mystery too.

    Over 40 trying to get the muscle back

    I would say STS. I gained the most muscle and strength doing this program. I found I was stronger and could lift heavier than I believed. I like having a structured program to stick with. It kept me on track. I did do the 1rm and I think that helped a lot with choosing the weight I could...

    Favorite salve for sore muscles and/or pulls

    I recently tried Aspercreme with Lidocaine and found it really helped. Plus no odor. You can find it at your drugstore over the counter. I agree about Arnica. I have not found it to help with pain but good for a bruise.

    Resistance Loops

    I have never had a resistance loop that I liked. I just tie a band and use it. I find the loops always sort of twist and narrow. Anyone have one they like? I looked at TheraBand but they have their critics too...tears. Any suggestions? Any loops you like better than others? Thanks.
