Q - Hi Ryan...Since hitting my 40's, the scale keeps creeping up and I've noticed I'm all around softer. I need to start doing something, but I'm not sure what. Most people I know that jog or run are now dealing with knee issues! I want to improve my health but am confused about the best way to go about it.

A - One of the best ways you can prevent bad knees is to strengthen your quads. Your quads are the largest muscles in your body. As you increase the strength of this large muscle you burn more calories even at rest!

What does that mean? By strengthening your quads you're protecting your knees, slowing and possibly reversing the aging process AND increasing your metabolism! Kettlebell Skier Squats are a great low-impact way to strengthen your quads! An added benefit of KettleWorx over running is that you will have a more than just a nice pair of "wheels" - you'll have toned arms, a fit middle AND legs to envy!

To Your Success,

You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces - just good food from fresh ingredients.

Lt. Kaffee: "I want the truth!"

Col. Jessep: "You can't handle the truth!"

If you've seen the movie "A Few Good Men," you know the fiery confrontation and intense courtroom scene when Tom Cruise finally gets Jack Nicholson to confess to what really happened in the death of Private Santiago. A much less dramatic, but profound "reality check" recently played out between my husband and me in our kitchen.

My husband and I were strolling through the grocery to pick up chicken, broccoli and fresh fruit for dinner. It was a Saturday so there were lots of food samples tempting us. A sweet woman with a plate full of meatballs cooked in marinara sauce offered us her wares just as my teenage son called to ask if he and his friends could hang at our house that night. I love having the kids around and enthusiastically said, "Of course!"

I quickly realized the dinner I'd planned would never feed a small army (teenage boys). Impulsively I grabbed a couple bags of the frozen meatballs I'd just sampled and a couple jars of marinara sauce so I could have my son's favorite meatball subs on hand for whoever showed up. My husband looked at me quizzically and said, "I thought we were having chicken?" I quickly explained we'd had a change of plans. Move over June Cleaver! There's a new mom on the block and the kids are coming to MY house tonight!

Before he could say anything more I threw in a couple boxes of Ghirardelli brownie mix. He simply shrugged and said, "Guess I'll get the buns." He returned with huge WHITE hoagie buns. His good intentions were met with a scowl and upturned nose. Innocently he asked, "What?" To which I sneered "White buns?" If you want a job done right, do it yourself...so off I went for smaller, whole grain buns. Sure they're teenagers, but I do like to encourage awareness of the ridiculously large portions we've become accustomed to in the U.S. and I mean really...WHITE bread??

When we got home I quickly threw meatballs and marinara in the crock-pot and whipped up the brownies. I felt like a regular Mama-Mia! After the boys were done eating I went into the kitchen to clean up and (cue the music from Jaws) I became a shark with a drop of blood in the water. Totally unexpected I headed into a feeding frenzy devouring not one, but TWO meatball subs (remember they were "small" buns) and popped a few more "bite-size" meatball chasers down the hatch for good measure!

My husband happened to walk in and said, "You know if I were doing that you'd sure have something to say about it!" To which I tried to defend myself, "Seriously?! You KNOW I eat better than ANYONE in this family!" Throw in a little more passionate ranting for good measure...and when I was done, my husband said, "I'm just sayin..."

I wasn't planning on dessert but hubby served me up a hearty slice of humble pie! At the time, I felt more indignant than indebted but if it's not too late I hope he'll accept my apology! The truth can be hard to swallow: too much of any food is TOO much and CLEAN eating comes from Mother Nature's kitchen - not the frozen foods aisle. Tell yourself whatever you want, but summer's here and one thing's for sure, your bathing suit won't lie! Can you handle the truth?

"After a 53 pound weight loss...I feel like I have finally broken out of my shell."Jessica E.

"My 'Oh God I need to lose weight' moment started eight weeks after I had my third son. I stepped on the scale at the doctor's office and it read 202 lbs. What!!!!!!!! How did that happen? Well, I ate too much junk and I did not exercise. People would say to me "well you just had a baby"- well that was not good enough for me and it did absolutely nothing to help my self-esteem."

"KettleWorx has allowed me to break down that wall and lose more weight."

"It's not just those pounds though; I can see arm definition, leg definition and yes, I can almost see abs starting to form! My stomach is going down after having three kids. My pants are getting looser. My energy level is way up and trust me I need it to run around after my three kids. KettleWorx has made me stronger not only physically but mentally. I now have the confidence to do things I never thought I would."

"So many people inspired me and motivated me on my weight loss journey, I wanted to give back. My New Year's resolution was to help others this year so my sons can see how great it is to give. I did a two-hour spin-a-thon for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I ran my first 5K for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I am doing a beach boot camp for the American Cancer Society on April 23. I have my next 5K for the Veterans on June 4."

"After a 53 pound weight loss, I feel like I have finally broken out of my shell. If I can inspire just one person to get into better shape, it would be a great feeling!"
