I don't know about you, but I hate going to the gym. I hate feeling self conscious. I hate going to a class and feeling like the most out of shape person there. I hate seeing my reflection in the mirrors and I hate screaming kids in locker rooms and I hate walking into a spin class and thinking there's a bike available but in reality, three quarters of the bikes are broken and a lot of the participants are on their third class of the morning and they're not going anywhere.

When it comes to health, there are certain instances in your life that stop you dead in your tracks. For me and my daughter, there's only one thing that can keep us from cruising through our busy lives -- gastrointestinal pain. While I don't talk about it among friends or strangers for that matter, I typically don't have many issues when it comes to my gut. But when I do, I pretty much dread that feeling where all you do is pray the pain will stop and you vow never to eat whatever got you into that mess in the first place.

Recently, my husband and a good friend of his opened a 25,000 square foot sports facility in New Rochelle, New York called A-Game Sports. The space is pretty amazing with indoor turf for soccer, lacrosse, baseball, softball, strength training and more. If you play on a team sport, there's always something for everyone. But what I happen to love about the space is that there are tons of places for parents, grandparents and kids who have been taken along for the ride to hang out, relax and play or in the words of the world's largest tabletennis brand Killerspin...it's time to #UnPlugNPlay!

Perhaps your family received the magazine at home each month or read it in the doctor's office. Either way, Highlights for Children has been a part of many of our childhoods. Devoted fans know that the Hidden Pictures puzzle has always been on Page 14. It's still there after 70 years! Can you believe no two puzzles have ever been repeated?

Recently, I was introduced to an amazing company called KillerSpin which offers a diverse array of ping pong table options for enthusiasts and professionals. The team at KillerSpin was nice enough to offer two different options to try out. One was a professional table that we'll be sharing details about soon, but the first is a portable table that's perfect for living rooms, dens, basements and even when you're visiting friends and family!

When it comes to computer usage in our home, I have to admit, we are all hopelessly addicted. My husband and I rely on our computers for both of our businesses (yes, two entrepreneurs living under one roof can be stressful to say the least). My daughter, who is a junior in high school is always using her computer for homework, research, group chats, Netflix streaming and much more. And then there's my son. As an eighth grader, we've made it clear that we won't be investing in an expensive computer for him until he heads to high school but he does still need one to complete homework assignments and projects.

If you are like me and have thousands of photos of your family on your phone, your hard drive, CD's and SIM cards but have never actually taken the time to create albums or even framed photos for you or your loved ones, I am here to say, stop digitally hoarding those photos and take five minutes out of your day today to order a holiday gift for yourself or your parents that will literally blow them away.

With holiday shopping season upon us, I'm sure most of us are getting poised and ready to hit the malls, stand on long lines and buy things for friends, family and loved ones that they probably don't need. But what if I told you that you don't even have to leave your home, you can go online, visit 1600 retailers with over 45000 brands and you get cash back and earn shares in the company every time you shop?

My father in law has an awesome saying that I like to use whenever I get to experience things that are out of this world. "You can't put a price on a good time." Well, yesterday morning was one of those moments. When I received the invite to the first ever Oprah's Favorite Things blogger breakfast, I was giddy with excitement.

I have to say, this is my favorite time of year. The fall foliage on the east coast is absolutely stunning and I happen to love the flowers this time of year too. So when the team from Bloomsy Box, a new online flower subscription plan where you can order fresh flowers straight to your door reached out to me and asked if they could send me a special delivery, how could I resist?

If someone would have told me that changing my skin care regimen would actually have an effect on reducing fine lines and wrinkles, I would have told them they're nuts and would have continued using my Cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer and changed my hairstyle so I could cover those pesky forehead lines with bangs. But when I recently spoke with the incredibly talented Charlene Bert who suggested I give Rodan + Fields a try, I was intrigued.

For many parents, getting their kids to read more and play video games less is a constant struggle. Learning versus having fun, at times, can seem like mutually exclusive processes. But they really don't have to be. The best of both worlds for a parent is to find opportunities where your child is doing something educational and at the same time, is genuinely enjoying the activity. A company out there called Kuato Games seems to have one of those opportunities for parents with its game app called Safari Tales.

If I had a nickel for every time someone in my family searched something on Google, I'm not sure I would be rich man, but it would certainly add up to a tidy sum of money. I don't think there is anyone out there willing to pay me that nickel for each search, but to my surprise, there is a company that recognizes the value of consumers like myself that spend considerable time on the internet. That recognition is shown in the form of small cash payments to a person's PayPal account when a person clicks on a search result that gets pulled up by a free browser app called Qmee.

If you're like me, you probably have taken thousands of photos with your phone and while some will definitely bring back incredible memories of a vacation getaway or that first time you adopted a puppy, the rest are just a complete blur.

While there isn't one predominant cause of breast cancer, researchers have found certain links to the disease. Smoking, drinking, family history and race are risks that can't be changed, but they can increase a person's chances in its development. However,...
