from our friends in South Africa

i have been loosely following a blog from called "The Science of Sport". the authors are PhD's in, well, go to the page and read their resume. it is listed on the right side. at any rate, they have had some wonderfully insightful things to say about the recent Worlds in Berlin, Pistorius, new swim suits,  marathon analyses, and on and on.
they are in the middle of posting a three part series (ok. FINE. they are 2/3rds of the way through) on weight loss and exercise. to sum it all up, i have been right all along, and i am very happy with myself.
there. i wrote it. not the articles, but that i am happy with myself for forming the same theory that these 2 PhD's came up with. weight control is a simple formula of calories IN and calories OUT. want to gain? tip the scale toward the IN. want to lose? duh, yes, to the OUT.
micro managing it will not work, as part 2 explains. carbs versus protien don't matter, unless you are a performing athlete. just try to keep an eye on what you eat and what you DO.
looking for articles on controversial topics? looking for arguments that go against the main stream media and bleeding hearts? check out their blog. web page. whatever. just go there. or not.
the colts versus ravens game is on in the living room. Z is giving us (T and I) a play by play analysis. i think he must spend too much time watching ESPN (it would only have to be 30 seconds to be considered too much time), and he talks constantly, and offers stats, data, and insider information as if it was something that we actually give two sh!t$s about.
this is when a dreadmill at home would be a great idea. did i just say that? i must be delirious.
