Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 10/5/11
I actually slept in this morning – OMG! Normally I’m up between 6-6:30, but today I slept in until eight, and I *cue jazz hands* feel faaaaaaaaaaaaaaabulous.
Of course, I had good reason to sleep in. I spent two and half hours yesterday at the dentist getting a deep cleaning as well as having my very first cavity filled. I left not being able to feel the left side of my face (weird), and then I high-tailed it out to CP for an Open House we were hosting for local parents and athletes. We had an amazing turn-out, with close to 90-100 people showing up to listen to a bunch of our pro-baseball guys talk about their experiences playing college ball and their transition to professional baseball. As an added bonus, the guys at New Balance were there filming and Kansas City reliever, Tim Collins, threw a live bullpen which was the best thing since sliced bread for many of the younger kids who were in attendance.
All in all, it was an awesome night topped off with an all-you-can-eat-fajita-fest hosted by the Cresey’s afterwards. By this time the novacaine had wore off and I had my appetite back, so I basically drove back home in insulin coma.
So with the late start, I’m kind of in a rush this morning answering emails and gettting my day planned, so here’s some stuff to read to keep you occupied:
5 Surprising Health Myths – Adam Bornstein
While Adam did a bang-up job debunking some fairly common misconceptions that are still prevalent in today’s media, the best part was reading the comments section. Which is to say, I had to stave off the sudden urge to want to jump off a cliff. It still blows me away that so many people are programmed to think that saturated fat is bad for them. Ignorance is bliss, right?
Lets set the record straight here: sticking your finger in an electrical socket = bad. Eggs = good. Got it? Good!
Exercise Doesn’t Work For Fat Loss? – Alwyn Cosgrove
If there’s one thing that Alwyn is a master off – outside of scissor kicks to the face – it’s taking research and dissecting it to the point that it makes the actual researchers look about as intelligent as a ham sandwich.
What I Love About Training – Mike Anderson
Mike is a local trainer here in Boston that I’ve gotten to know recently, and he sent me this post that I felt was spot on. In short, you get out what you put in. It’s as simple as that.
