    Kestrel, thanks for posting this. I live in SF (around the Sunset District), and have been meaning to check out Bi-Rite for a while now. Sounds like a lovely place and worth the trip.

    Thanks for sharing, lcme. Lucky parents to be raising grass-fed cows!

    Hi, lcme. I've enjoyed browsing through your journal so far. While you've suffered the recent poptart and cupcake slip-up, I've fallen into the pattern of constantly eating when not hungry, i.e....

    Today was my first day with the front squats, and I think that...

    mstrudle, a friend of mine made the same critique--pointed out that my deadlift is divided into two motions.. I'll try to remedy it by holding my breath as you advise. Thanks for commenting.
