In 2004 I was diagnosed with diabetes. Yay me! I immediately cut out as much sugar as possible from my diet and have been lucky enough not to have to go on insulin or other medications to manage the condition. Just using diet and exercise doesn't mean I ignore the fact that I'm a diabetic though… Read More

Choosing a wearable fitness tracker isn't an easy task when there are so many different devices on the market to pick from.

How are your oral habits? Do you floss your teeth at least once a day? I'll admit that I have a really hard time sticking to the habit. For me, it's a combination of forgetting and just being lazy. Can a gadget help me and you be more proactive with our oral hygiene tasks? Flosstime… Read More

Low iron levels in your blood can make you feel dizzy, fatigued, and lightheaded, not to mention causing a fast heart rate, shortness of breath and other unpleasant side effects.

I have been wearing toed socks daily and toed shoes to workout while on travel for years. Truth be told, I love the way toed socks feel in all types of footwear. The minimalistic toed shoes are excellent while living from a suitcase cause they take up much less volume than regular fitness/running shoes while still getting… Read More

One of my children suffered from a febrile seizure many years ago (seizures that are brought on by a spike in body temperature over a short period of time). Apparently, these are fairly common, and to decrease the likelihood of a recurrence, the parent needs to monitor the sick child's temperature fairly closely and administer… Read More

It's been almost a year and a half since I reviewed the Fitbit Charge HR and Fitbit Surge activity trackers.

I'm what leaders in the razor sciences refer to as "follicly gifted"; I have five o'clock shadow by 9 a.m. While being the only kindergartner with a full beard was great, as I became older, the facial grooming necessary for work became a hassle. Additionally, I have mildly sensitive skin; I'm prone to razor burn, dry… Read More

Back in September of 2015, I reviewed a pretty interesting take on the slingshot, The Pocket Shot. I thought The Pocket Shot was a good product not only for everyday adventure but also as a survival tool.

Sometimes I find myself slumped in my computer chair and my mom's voice pops into my head saying "sit up straight!" It can become a bad habit to slouch for those of us who sit down at a desk all day.  If you want to strengthen your core muscles, lessen your back pain and increase… Read More

I have used many types of razors in my life. They include the free cr@ppy plastic disposable ones hotels give out, the latest and greatest electric razors, fancy double-edge safety razors, and everything in between. As I have gotten older, I make the time and spend the money to pamper myself while shaving. Long gone are… Read More
