    The reality is, taking group fitness classes at a gym or following workout DVDs at home are both great options to enhance your current level of fitness.

  • Around The Water Cooler: Redskins One Victory Away From Divisional Title After Win Against Eagles

    Andrew Walker

    This magical Washington Redskins season continues.

    The Redskins went into Philadelphia and defeated their rival Eagles 27-20 Sunday to extend their winning streak to six games and set up a showdown for the NFC East Division title next Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

    A win, and Washington (9-6) has its first NFC East title and home playoff game since the 1999 season. A loss, and the Redskins would need help from a couple other teams to make the playoffs as a Wild Card.

    The Redskins certainly had a slow start on Sunday against the Eagles (4-11), but really ... Read More

    The smell of a freshly cut grapefruit immediately takes me back to cold winter mornings growing up. My parents shared a grapefruit every morning with their breakfast. I realize now why “winter” is the season of this memory; winter is when citrus fruit is at its peak season.

    Citrus as a winter fruit is another example of Mother Nature’s perfect timing! 

    Citrus fruit provides us many of the nutrients needed to fend off colds, flu and other germs we are susceptible to at this time of year.
