A free trial at your local gym can take the edge off the day and give you more energy.
Sometimes as a mother it may feel as though you do everything for everyone, except yourself. While your little ones may have you running around all day like a maniac, exercising for the sole purpose of doing a good thing for yourself can be energizing, rejuvenating and even relaxing when you're done. An easy way break your routine is to sign up for a free trial at your local gym. Club Fitness in Brentwood offers a 14-day trial period for you to test the waters. This gives you two full weeks, so if you're too busy to go everyday you still have an opportunity to go at least once or twice.

How this chubby food writer vows to eat well and still lose some weight.
I'm pretty sure someone once said, "Never trust a skinny food writer." This isn't a problem for me; I am definitely not a skinny food writer. In fact I'm a downright overweight food writer. Food is my very good friend and it loves me back - and front and all over, especially under my chin. This year, however, I vow to balance my friendship with food, create a healthier relationship, lose some weight and still be a great food writer. I may be making this resolution at exactly the wrong time. I've only just started my food column for Kirkwood-Webster Groves Patch, less than four weeks ago. I should be eating out more often, visiting and enjoying our local restaurants and reporting back to all of you. And I will, because I think I can …

This week, Patch introduces you to Nicole Nester, who has motivated area women through an early morning fitness "boot camp" for close to 10 years.
Nicole Nester was a stay-at-home mother of three little boys when she signed up for a class at the Kirkwood YMCA that took her life in a whole new direction. The class was a fitness "boot camp" taught by a drill sergeant-type with a booming voice and a penchant for pushups. He had her whipped into shape by the end of the summer, and she was hooked. "After having my third child, I just wanted to get out and do something for myself," Nester said. "It made me feel so happy and energized, and I thought it would be cool to do this just for women." So with no professional training -- but a healthy dose of determination and a contagious rah-rah attitude -- Nester launched her own early morning boot camp in her suburban backyard. It was supposed …
