    Agreed. It's easy to understand, doesn't require lots of micromanagement, and most of all, it's fun!

    If I'm attending any formal event, I will. Otherwise, I just run my fingers through it, neaten it up, and call it good.

    Good on you, being all neighborly. :) I would imagine if you're shoveling them out, your neighbors would probably overlook the backpack tossing. ;)

    Shoveling. Seriously. I know you didn't count it, but digging a car out of waist-deep snow is a hell of a workout on the legs and shoulders.

    Wussy? No way. That's more than most people I know do. :)

    For me, it's pretty simple:

    Sprint more
    Work on my 1.5 mile time
    Join a boxing/jujitsu club
    Stay Paleo

    Right on. I've taken to doing hourly stretch/move/push-up/whatever breaks while I'm pulling my 12-hour shifts, and after the first night I was feeling physically "better" and mentally sharper....

    Maybe with chicken thighs? I just tried a mushroom chicken with rosemary and oil dish with them. So awesome.

    Heh, I wonder how many of them were chowing down on sugar-filled cookies and whatnot. Hard to blame them, though, since many of us were on that side of the fence not too long ago. ;)

    I'm not an expert in any sense of the word, but if you're exercising every day, you may be overdoing it. (Your body needs time to rest, after all!) You may want to try throwing in a day or two...

    I've lived in Maine (NE United States) my whole life, and I'm guessing the winters here are comparable to those in the UK. Nothing satisfies me more on a cold, snowy night than a piping hot bowl of...

    I know for me it was (and still kinda is) clinging to the fundamental CW concept of fat=bad, as Griff mentioned above. I still struggle with it.
