Know what I learned yesterday?
My blog friends will listen to me whine and complain when I’m sick and not one of them will say, ‘Suck it up, you big wimp.’
My blog friends will ignore comments about my nasty hair and less than stellar hygiene and instead offer words of support and encouragement.
Again, thank you.
I’m starting to feel like this blog is an ongoing broadcast of useless news updates:
You’re watching Day Eight of Ellen’s Massive Shut-in!
Has she found her way back to health? Will she ever wash her hair? Stay tuned!
Vickie checked in on me this morning and I wrote back, ‘I feel better but not enough to really mean it.’ I am going to throwing class tonight; at least for the demonstration. So, I will be making my way out of the house today which means that yes, I’m washing my hair (my husband must be secretly thanking the gods for that one.)
While I’ve been sick I’ve been away from the computer as well, except when I can’t sleep at night. That’s when I usually surf around and if I’m lucky I’ll find something of interest. This week I’ve come across a couple of completely unrelated but interesting websites that I thought I’d share:
The first one is called Earndit and you need to head over there if you use one of the following services: Nike+, a Fitbit, FourSquare, EveryTrail or a Garmin Connect. Basically, you’re awarded points for exercising and can use those points for things like nutrition bars, giftcards, apparel, tea and some other cool stuff. I don’t use any of the above services but love the concept – and who doesn’t love free stuff? Oh! I scanned over the FAQ’s and you can use this service even if you don’t live in the US (you may have to meet certain requirements though, so check on that).
The second site is called InfoZooms and if you like finding information quickly and in list-form, you might check it out. Topics vary from Ten Ways to Exercise Outside of the Gym to 11 Rules to Work Smarter Not Harder. What makes this site interesting is that it’s interactive: you can push the most useful info to the top of the list and even add to it if you like. I’ve used this site a couple of times now to help with blogger’s block. Sometimes just scanning the lists has triggered an idea for a post.
Have a great Wednesday, everyone. Stay healthy. If your hair needs washed, just do it already.
