Who needs a stroller?

As most of you know, I have an obsession with keeping up on strollers. I absolutely adore my BOB, but I make it my business to know about lots of others so that I can help my Stroller Strides mommies choose what stroller will work best for them.
Bumbleride makes a great stroller and you can win one! Go to The Mommy Files blog and follow the instructions to get your entries! The contest closes on November 25.
Good luck!

Absolute Fitness

I am so stoked about the app. I just purchased for my Pre. It is called Absolute Fitness and it is a nutrition and exercise counter! Yea! Keeping tabs on what I consume and how much I burn is now at my fingertips! I know that is weird that I'm so excited about this program, but as a busy mom running a business, I do not have the time to sit down and calculate these things myself. So, being able to enter it in a matter of seconds on my phone, which is always with me, is going to be great.
I just downloaded it, so I will start tracking tomorrow and will keep you updated as to how I like the app.

Brains & Brawn?

I've been seeing news segments and articles lately touting the current research that exercise makes you smarter. We all know that exercise improves cardiovascular health and can help you to look absolutely fabulous in that little black dress, but now scientists are proving that it can also increase brain power. Researchers at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign published a study in April that supports the conclusion that aerobic exercise improves working memory capacity. So, if you have an exam coming up, take a brisk walk or jog about 30 minutes prior to boost your memory.
