    Washing Machines and Dishwashers

    I will be in the market for these two appliances in the near future and I wanted to poll everyone for their opinions for the best ones to get. I never had a problem with a washing machine until my last one - a Samsung - that rusted all around the bleach dispenser. So, now I'm going to be more...

    Rubber plates

    I'm thinking of replacing my plastic ones with some rubber ones. Any suggestions for good ones? And I believe bumper plates are essentially the same as "regular" plates.

    Cathe Live

    I was thinking of getting this for more variety and random workouts. I was wondering, for those who subscribe to it, if you think it's worth the money and if they have a learning-the-moves period.

    Cardio decline

    I don't know if it's me not doing enough cardio, my age, or my lack of interest = but, I'm on the brink of being 49 and I just don't have the cardio stamina in me. I don't mind some heart racing with some iron pumping or even some aerobics. But the Imax's and the MIC, some of the HiiT's are...

    Hair breakage

    I am a brunette who have been dying my hair totally blonde for the last 12 or so years. I'm on the brink of 49, probably peri-menopausal. I have noticed my hair having breakage lately and I'm very concerned. I'd blame the harsh color treatment, but he only does the roots. He blames the pony...

    Quest Protein Powder

    Since I learned about Quest protein bars from Cathletes, I was wondering what your opinions were of their new protein powders. My husband likes Beachbody's protein powder, but it is so expensive.

    I hear a lot of positive feedback regarding Piyo. Any negative? I'm interested in it as a "Christmas Present" and I'd like to know the negative feedback so I can make a decision. I'm getting Cathe's Ripped with Hiit for a "Birthday Present" and I love to mix things up.

    Injured hip flexor

    I think I did something, somehow because my right hip (flexor) hurts. It hurts when I pull up my leg to put pants on and the pain kind of radiates through my pelvic area. I thought there was something wrong with my girly parts, but the ultrasound was normal. Anyone ever experience this...

    100 Rep challenge workout

    Anyone do these as a workout? I was thinking of doing a step workout today and then add on some 100 rep challenges. I haven't done ANY yet and I can't decide what to do so I thought this would really work my muscles in a way they haven't been worked before.
