Planet Fitness removing squat racks? Aroo?
Did anyone else see this weird account of PF removing squat racks because people found them intimidating? That's just Reddit being garbage, right?…
Do you Fro-Po?
Warm weather is returning! For many of us, that means it's time to apply discerning amounts of self-tanner, and break out the frozen potato desserts! Mmmmm...what are some of your fave go-to fro-po flaves?
At the request of a friend, I’m adapting and reposting my response from another thread of mine. His hope is that it will resonate with someone out there, and encourage you to venture beyond your own notion of what you’re capable of, and come away with a win. I share that optimism. Mostly. If your quest to improve your…
Lululemon, worth it?
Specifically running and tennis gear. Is there a benefit worth the extra money I'd pay?
Weird top 10 list-nations with most obesity
I was reading a not-so-great article on Yahoo News about Mexico edging out the U.S. for the highest obesity rate. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/news/america-fattest-obese-un-144341236.html What struck me was a U.N. report on the list of developed nations who struggle most with this.

Calorie Goal in MFP: I put what were now?
Good Morning, Okay look, I tried. I really did. I read the road map, did keyword searches in the message boards and used the calculators. My TDEE-20% is 1800 and BMR is 1400 calories. So I've got my ceiling and my basement but which do I enter in MFP in the goal field? Apologies in advance because I know the answer is…
Not usually a joiner...but here we are.
So I'm just going to let my thoughts take me where they will here. Let's see, my husband and I are back on the fitness wagon after a months-long hiatus, and this time...THIS time... ...sigh. You know what? I don't know if this time is gonna be different. I've had so many starts and stops with losing weight and getting fit…
