No surprise, I am a HUGE fan of The Oatmeal. What's The Oatmeal, you ask? The Oatmeal, AKA Matthew Inman, is a web artist who is just a wee bizarre who has several comics (and a book!) about struggling with "The Blerch" and dieting and why he runs ridiculously long distances. Now, I've never participated in any running/walking events, but if one of his ever comes within reasonable driving distance to me I am so there. :D
/dieting_pie_chart - Why Dieting Is Hard
/exercise_response - How your body responds to exercise
/marathon_do - Dos and Don'ts of running your first marathon
Seriously, I love this dude. Not ALL his comics are about weight and running. Some are about cats. Some are about farts. Some are hilariously weird. A few are strange and yet tug your heartstrings something fierce.
But today, the pie chart really had me LOL'ing. I gave myself the hiccups for the THIRD time today because of this website. First happened at work, second was a list of hilarious questions raised about the Harry Potter universe on Tumblr, and third... pie charts. Oy.
That said... still avoiding soda, still chugging water... whee. :) Haven't been back out on the bike lately 'cuz I'm in a sewing crunch. Less than two weeks until I'm helping a friend with her craft booth. I may not be exercising like mad, but when I'm sewing I don't have any hands free for eating. Haha! And besides, I'd have to keep washing my hands to keep the fabric clean. And really, who's got time for that?
