Top ten posts in December, #icymi

My post about that Peloton ad was our #1 post of the month. I was puzzled by all the people who thought the wife was already fit because she was thin.

Our second most read of the month was my post about training like a world class endurance athlete, building a base, and making the time to go slow.

Marjorie wrote about pseudoscience and the need for critical thinking in the area of nutrition and exercise science. That post was #3.

Science!

Nicole urges us when it comes to food choices just say yes, please or no, thank you. ” I urge us all to try to break free from “I can’t because I’ve been bad, naughty, I fell off the wagon, etc.”. We all have different reasons for choosing to eat what we do, day in and day out. I’m not here to discuss the pros and cons of different food plans. But if you are presented with food (cookies, chocolates, etc.) that you choose not to eat, simply say “No Thank You”. The location of the opportunity for snacking does not matter – it can be at work, your friend’s house or your parent’s place. ” That post was #4.

In the 5th most read post of December Nat puts out her wish for high performance formal dance . wear. ” I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, why can’t we dance the night away at weddings & other formal gatherings without drowning in our sweat? Whether you prefer a snappy suit or a darling dress no one feels great in their getup after even a short stint of enthusiastic dancing. “
