Around the Web – Mar 30

‘Healthy’ alcohol choices.

Sugar.

Interesting study on gastric surgery and diabetes – scary but interesting.

Not just unhealthy, but unhappy.

 

 

 

Chart Madness!

I heard March was Chart Madness or something like that with some sort of tracking graphic involving some sort of athletics.  Or maybe I’m thinking of Wordless Wednesdays?  Or something.  Here’s some charts!  (All charts generated from my data in Lose It! and Run Keeper).

First up – Weight and BMI

BMI - Summaries to 3/28/12Looking back at 10 months and it’s hard to complain!  The trend is my friend!

Next Up – Running Stats

Due to my recent switch to Northern Iowa where I have increased number of runs from 3 per week to 4, but decreased the distances initially, the graphs show some ‘dips’ in average per activity.

The Road To 2012 NYC Marathon – Summary of T-33 Week.

Weekly Highlights:

  • Northern Iowa Week 2 (3 miles, 4, miles, 3 miles, 6 miles).
  • I find myself saying things like – ‘oh today’s just a 3 miler, let’s bang it out quick quick and get some weights in.’  This was an inconceivable thought in December.
  • I’ve picked up a marathon buddy who is one of my best friends (was my best man).  Will need to ask him what he’ll allow me to say.
