Smarter Science of Slim: Silly Strong LOLCats
First off: I just want to take a few moments to say THANK YOU to all the brave men and women (past a present) who, in what’s arguably the most un-selfish act possible, have put their lives on the line to serve this great country.
In the words of a friend of mine, Greg, who stated it about as eloquently as possible: Regardless of the situations our leaders put you in, you handle it so that others don’t have to and I respect the hell out of that. Often thankless, often overlooked, often taken for granted, you persevere to do the duty you pledged, voluntarily, to do and I respect the hell out of that too.
Thank you. Not just today, but every day.
Happy Veteran’s Day.
Secondly: Some of you may recall a video I linked to earlier this year by author Jonathan Bailor titled Slim is Simple. In it, Jonathan discusses why it is we’re fatter and more unhealthy than ever before despite exercising and dieting in record numbers.
It was a message that I enjoyed and felt many people could relate with. Simple, to the point, with no fluff and BS.
In an age where some grown adults are under the delusion that eating baby food is a viable dietary option, and even more nitpick over whether or not a bowl of oatmeal is considered “Paleo,” it’s a breath of fresh air to hear people like Jonathan speak on why it doesn’t always (if ever) have to so complicated.
Not long after I posted my blog Jonathan invited me to hang out on is podcast, The Smarter Science of Slim, where we talked about a handful of things ranging from CrossFit to training athletes to goal setting to LOLCats.
Hence the title of the episode.
It just went live today, and if you have 30 minutes to spare I think it would be well worth the time.
