I was completely engrossed, hanging on every word. I read story after story, barely able to believe what I was reading. Every person I read about was completely unsuccessful. I began to find comfort in their failures. Their defeat made me smile. I know, I
“Its not the same!” Her face was flush with anxiety and disappointment. Gwen’s mother put her arm around her sobbing daughter. It was an all-night cry fest and there was no way fix it. The tears flowed freely like a dam that had ruptured from
“Sit up straight, young lady.” The stern voice was quickly followed by a loud thwack on my desk by Mrs. Stinson’s indestructible ruler. Seriously, I don’t know how that thing never broke. She smacked it on someone’s desk at least 50 times a day. “You
I ran through the terminal as fast as I could while pulling a carry-on behind me. The voice over the loud speaker taunted me again. “Last call for Flight 2356 to Dallas-Fort Worth.” I searched the terminal gate numbers ahead of me as I ran.
I am not a soda drinker. I only drink it when I’m sick of coffee and jonesing for an afternoon caffeine kick … Or when I’m at family functions or with friends at restaurants … Or when it’s readily available in my fridge, or better
Running is awesome. I can sense your scoffing all the way across the internet. “Running is awful,” you might be saying. “No one really likes to run except oddballs and people with disorders.” I was once like you. I used to think running was too
Who Are We?
We are the Rag-Tag group of Research Geeks that have uncovered all the wonderful information on this site.
Perhaps we’re a little weird. OK, we ARE a little weird. We love research, and we spend all day, every day, looking at real science. The actual research data.
We believe that science can show us how to live better. Not by blindly following every media-hyped revelation from every new study (you'll get whiplash from changing directions so often!)... and not by turning our lives upside down and becoming obsessed with health and fitness, either.
Because we DON'T believe people living in the real world can bake all their own whole-grain bread at home or create every meal from scratch using only locally-grown organic produce. Nor do most of us have time to spend hours at the gym every day.
We're real people with real lives. Which means we're going to have to hit the Drive-Thru more than we'd like. And we have meetings, and families, and tight schedules. And we're tired of being made to feel guilty by well-meaning zealots who think that we don't measure up to their definition of healthy.
Here, we believe in being as healthy as we can. In trying to find ways to fit some fitness in and doing a little better every day without letting it control our lives.
The point of being healthier is to LIVE. And that's what this site is all about.
