Which Work Out?

Hi! So, my husband, SIL, BIL, and cousins and I are entering the hero rush 5K as a team for next May. If you haven't heard of it you should look it up. It's not just a regular 5K. It's a 5K where you are climbing walls, crawling through tunnels, jumping over flames, ect... You get the idea, lol! Very tough and I have never done anything like this before but I'm excited because I think it will motivate me to get in shape. But, right now, I am not in good shape. I have about 15 pounds to loose, and I would need to build up endurance and...

Exercise Options for Obese MIL with Bad Knees and Arthritis

My sweet mother-in-law's body is a mess. She is about 200 pounds overweight, diabetic, has arthritis in most of her joints, and her knees are so bad that her doctor said they are "bone on bone". She cannot have knee replacement surgery because of her weight--it would only last about a year the doctor says. I'm certain she is eating healthier than she used to, but she does not exercise--even walking hurts. I believe water aerobics would be the best thing for her; however, she says she has to do it in a pool that does not have stairs for...

North County Pre-schools?

My little girl is potty-trained and will be three on Christmas day. I selected a pre-school for her when I was expecting, but they have since moved to Wentzville. We have had such a tough time finding a pre-school that meets the needs of my family. We are looking for a center in the North (or Mid) County area that offers a full-day program with healthy meals and teachers who are licensed in Early Childhood Education. I will be willing to drive further if we are unable to find what we need in our vicinity. I am hoping that we find a...

DVD To Get Toddlers up and Moving

We're looking for a DVD to encourage our 2 1/2-year-old daughters to run, dance, jump, stretch, etc. on rainy days this summer, when they can't play outside. We tried a Sesame Street DVD with Zoe doing dance moves with Paula Abdul, but it was too advanced for them -- they like watching it, but it doesn't really get them moving or dancing along. Does anybody have any exercise-, dance- or movement-themed DVDs to recommend, that worked with this young age group?
