life: super powers not included

No Way

Can you believe that this:

Tracey Halloween

Is 28 today?

Me neither. I’m celebrating today (you know, by going to work all day and fun stuff like that) but I’ll be back (and older and wiser) tomorrow.

While I’m off partying like it’s 1982 over in cubicle 10, entertain yourselves:

These tips for going local on a budget are particularly useful since The Man and I are vowing to spend less.

Just in time for summer, a seriously simple guide to cutting a mango without wasting most of the flesh. Not that I do that or anything.

We’re back to not stretching, at least before workouts. I’m assuming a post-workout stretch is still a-OK. At least until the next study comes out.

Britney Spears has been turned into an airbrushed Barbie, and her “before” isn’t that bad. But that airbrushing was totally, 100 percent, absolutely, without a doubt necessary.

Disappointed you didn’t make the team, get the guy, win the bet, or whatever else it is that makes you curl up in the fetal position and suck on a chocolate bar? Here are seven surprisingly helpful tips for getting over it.

Which story do you find most interesting? And are you with me: The Briney Spears ad is unnecessarily photoshopped?

HAPPY B-DAY GIRL!!!! Eat cake and Just Be.
Ugh – I am so dissapointed about that Britney ad …she looks awesome in the before…sick of society.
And I think you should be expecting your prize from UPS tommorow ;)

Too cute…the picture that is ! Britney who??

Tracey Reply:

Sian–I’d just like to point out that it was in fact Halloween. My parents didn’t dress me up like that regularly until I hit 14. (Kidding.)

Since you asked…
Thanks for the link to the story on stretching, I was just talking this over with my wife yesterday! We also don’t stretch before exercise, weight training, or cardio. However, with all the new techniques coming out (I know of 3 different types of stretching now!) I wouldn’t be surprised if the recommendations change.

[Reply]

Tracey Reply:

Dave–I don’t stretch beforehand either. But for me, post-workout stretching is completely necessary. I think you’re right–once researchers look into the different types of stretching, we may see new recommendations. Again.

[...] I turned 28 and my sister actually came to visit me in Virginia for the first time. Too bad the weather wasn’t nice, what with Hell freezing over and all of those pigs flying around. [...]
