Jogging along

Quote du jour: You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe day-light-savings time. - Dave Barry

Study du jour: Obesity is contagious
In the study, the team found that an American adult has a 2 percent chance of becoming obese in any given year, and each obese social contact increases the risk of becoming obese by 0.5 percent per year.

And while having fat friends increases the odds that you will become fat, befriending thin people does not appear to help you lose weight.

"We didn't find having more healthy-weight friends made it more likely to help people lose weight. It fits in with this idea of thinking about it as an infectious disease. You don't really catch healthiness," she said.

Well hell, there's a simple solution. Just don't have friends.

Goal for the month: 30 days of a sort, shred, file or purge fest.
Done! One hour's worth of sorting

Goal for the week: Put nose to pillow by 9 p.m.
Oh crap. It's already quarter to ten. Don't mind me, I'm off to pillow-land e'en as we speak...

Exercise du jour: Walk to/from work, and Week 2 C25k. Jogging didn't seem to do Daniel Craig any harm.
Done! Well, the C25k part, anyway. And it kicked my butt, too. I didn't look nearly as carefree as Mr. Craig there.

I never get tired of seeing a man like that in teeny tiny shorts. Thank you, Miss Merry.

I put him up there for you, Xenia.
And also to remind me to go jogging ;)

I'd go jogging if I saw men like that on the beach. Actually, I'd go jogging if I were closer to the beach.

May your jogging give you sights to dream of, and your dreams oblige and start early.

Or swim, or cycle, or dance, or walk in the woods, or... something fun, anyway.
