    Cathe DVD's And Heartrate?

    If you take certain blood pressure medicines, your heart rate will not be an accurate measure of your activity level. For example, a person on a beta blocker (Toprol, Coreg, etc) may have heart rates that never exceed 100, no matter how hard they work out. Becky

    Personal Question

    Could you be pregnant? Sometimes women spot the embryo implants in their uterus.

    Recovering from an appendectomy

    The third day after the surgery the water weight begins to disappear. I would wait until your appointment to have your staples/sutures taken out and ask the surgeon what he/she thinks regarding your working out. Everyone is different and your doc will be able to tell your progress. If...

    If you use botox: something to think about (FYI)

    Botox isn't just for vanity. It is used in many areas of medicine to relax muscles, including the upper GI tract and, as one previous poster mentioned, to curb excessive sweating. There are other uses as well.

    Another Spears baby...

    As soon as I heard this, I started thinking again about how sex ed should be taught in schools. Here in Escambia county Florida, only abstinence is taught. No condoms, no birth control, no nothing. It is a farce! Kids are hitting puberty earlier and their hormones are raging. Sex will...

    KK's August Check In

    Hi ladies! I'm Back! Sorry I have been gone so long. I had boards then tons of company and then my general surgery rotation. That basically meant I slept probably 5 hours in 3 months (exaggeration, but still it was really crazy). Boards went great. My score was wonderful. All doors...

    Blender suggestions please

    Do NOT get a kitchenaid blender. They stink at smoothies/slushy drinks. Actually, it doesn't do a good job w/ anything.

    KK's June Check In

    Hi ladies. Wow...I had forgotten how to relax! We had company in all weekend and the last of them left today. Since our house was full, I couldn't really get a Cathe workout in, but I did manage to go for a run each day, including today. Tomorrow I plan on doing something of Cathe's w/...

    Hi ladies! My test was yesterday. I got up early and did a quick and fast 25 minutes on the treadmill to run out some nerves. I think it went really well. I am sure I I just want to know the score! I won't know for around 6 weeks. :( I think I am going to do stretching/abs...
