Sorry for not posting, I am enjoying my vacation from work and blogs. 🙂

I am reading a very interesting book by Gary Taubes called “What Makes Us Fat: And What To Do About It.” He explains how the decades old thinking that ‘calories in minus calories out equals fat’ is wrong and that good science regarding insulin’s role in regulating fat tissue has been totally ignored.

One link is to the book. The other link is to an article he wrote for the NY Times. Great stuff.

In other news…I hit the Endurance WOD at noon yesterday and my range was 1:40-1:46 for all five rounds in the 100+ degree gym. Then, Andy and Steven were doing 100m sprints on the minute, so I did 4 of those.  For my evening workout, I did a 7 minute AMRAP of thrusters and dips until my shoulders fell off.
