I'm impressed w/ the blogs I read

Saturday, May 08, 2010

I love to read - novels, work-place articles, how-to stuff, my garden books, facebook posts, daily news, etc... But the blogs here are quickly becoming my top favorite.

I am amazed not only at the stories of courage, will, and perserverance - but I'm also blown away at how many people on this site write w/ such candid humor or the ability to motivate me for the rest of the day.

I have found some favorite blog 'Sparkers' and I have read so much of their 'stuff' that I feel that if I passed them on the street, I would recognize them.

So to all of the bloggers...thank you - you are assisting me in the pursuit of a healthier me ;)


Finally got 100 on the quiz!

Friday, April 30, 2010

Whooo Hooo!... I finally took one of the quizzes and answered the first three right! Only took about 50 before it finally happened. Personally, I think the computer felt sorry for me and gave me three easy ones :)

I say this somewhat tongue-in-cheek...because when I first started taking the quizzes, I thought, I'll ace this... NOT! Many times I answer the question with such self-assurance, 'oh, I definitely know this'...and then I hear the imaginary "Family Feud" buzzer go off in my head when I see the 'that is incorrect' box appear. I stare at the screen like there's been a computer glitch or something. Then I read the 'why' and it's like, 'duh'

However, even though I presently have a "D"... it's still one of my favorites parts of the site. It's usually the 2nd thing I do after the wheel ! I am amazed at what I don't know...and most of it isn't rocket science - but it did prove to me nutrition isn't just about counting calories...
