Get Your Exercise On - Then Rest!

We all know, or have at least heard, how important exercise is to our health.  It's great for our us physically AND emotionally, but sometimes we can overdo it.  While, ideally, we all would work out/exercise in some form or fashion EVERY day, for those who are just starting out on an exercise regiment it's best to take it slow.

Care For Your Knees

Our knees take a beating each and every day.  We walk, run, jump, and come back down to the ground during everyday activities and through exercise.  While knees can withstand a great deal of pressure, after a certain amount of time they begin to break down and cause us pain.

Sensible Snack Swaps

Whether you're a football fan or not, you probably have plans for "the big game" coming up this weekend.  Often Super Bowl parties are marked by drinking and snacking on cheese dips, wings, pizza, and other savory snacks that don't help our waistlines so much.  If you're on a diet and hosting or attending a party, here are some tips from TOPS Club (and me!).
