I know as well as anyone how challenging it can be to exercise
regularly, eat less, and lose weight.
Obviously there are lots of apps designed to help you meet
those challenges, including such well-known favorites as Lose It,
MyFitnessPal, and RunKeeper. I've found the last two in particular
to be indispensable as part of my regimen.
That said, developers are always looking for new ways to
(sorry) app-etize fitness and weight loss, everything from saving
you time to rewarding you for your efforts. Here's a look at three
of the latest apps that can help you health yourself.
7 Minute Workout
It was just a few weeks ago that I read a New York Times article about an interval
workout promising maximum fitness benefits with just seven
minutes of activity.

I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving, complete with tons of belly-busting food, drinks and good company. I'm actually still full from last week's feast and I'm sure most of you are feeling my pain. A ten day Master Cleanse sounds pretty good right now, but there are easier ways to get your body back on track. And, you might even have some of the digestive aids in your kitchen.
Here are some cheap and easy ways to get rid of that overstuffed feeling.

It's been all over the news lately, this brain-eating amoeba (Naegleria fowleri) that has claimed the lives of 2 adults and 1 child. Apparently, this deadly amoeba thrives in warm, stagnant water found in freshwater lakes, ponds and rivers. The parasite enters through the nose and travels up to the brain where it eventually devours your brain. Symptoms include fever, stiff neck and nausea and headache along with meningitis. The public is being warned to avoid swimming in shallow warm water where these amoeba live. I don't know about you, but I've never been on to dive into stagnant water. I always feel like something creepy is going to jump out at me.
But then again, one of the deaths did result from drinking contaminated tap water. *shudders*
This got me thinking about what other weird diseases there are that we don't know about. I present to you the top four.

Ah, prescriptions. Most of us have to get them and some of them come at a premium price. As we get older, the amount of prescriptions we have to fill tends to add up. What are some ways you can get discounts on drugs?
