CVS Pharmacy is requiring all employees to submit their weight, body fat, cholesterol and other vitals if they use the company's health plan. If they refuse to submit the information, they will be charged an additional $50 per month for their insurance. On one hand, with rising health insurance costs, I can understand why they want this, but on the other hand, it's very scary and brings up many privacy issues.

Man in Speedo Doing Aerobics – Monday Morning Eye Candy, Kinda

I don't know about you, but my body is NOT ready for a bathing suit. Every Fall, I tell myself I have all Winter to get in shape and that by the time warm weather is here I will look smoking hot. It never happens. I'm actually really hard on myself when summer comes and I look like a pasty, flabby, middle aged housewife. Self loathing sets in and I pout while I hide my body under a cover up. But not this guy! He has no problem with the way he looks. I wish I was more like him; actually, he is my HERO! This guy takes 'dancing like no one is watching' to a WHOLE other level!:-)

Raw Oysters Taste a Lot Better Than They Look

I just returned from vacation after spending all last week in Charleston, South Carolina. My wife and I go there every year and one thing we always try and do is try something new. Anybody who knows me or listens to me and Leslie on the air know that 'new' can be kind of scary for me - but I did something I swore I would never do.

Adorable Kid Giving a Remarkable Pep Talk [VIDEO]

I have always tried to live life with a positive outlook. But I'm not going to lie - right now, I am having a very hard time doing that. It's like I just can't find the awesomeness inside me any more. I am questioning my choices and my worth almost daily. Sometimes though, just when you need it the most, the good Lord shows you the light inside yourself. Today, I saw it in the eyes of a child and heard it in his voice. Hopefully you will too. :-)

Your Love of Energy Drinks Could Put You in the ER

It's about 3 o'clock...are you feeling a little sluggish and need a pick me up? Maybe an energy drink would come in handy right now...and maybe not. My 19-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter love to drink Monster and I have a friend who swears by his daily 5-Hour Energy drink. According to a new survey of U.S. hospitals, the number of trips to the emergency room that are tied to energy drink consumption has doubled over the last four years. Great, first no large sodas in New York City and now this - is there no end to the debauchery?
