Shared Wisdom: Irene Edition (Part 1)

It has been quite some time since I last posted anything and even longer since we had a “Shared Wisdom.” Unfortunately for the continuity of the blog, I work a full time job, so I usually blog on Saturday, and for the last 5 straight Saturdays I have either had company visiting me in NYC or been at the beach. Tough life I know.

Fortunately for the blog, Hurricane Irene is bearing down on NYC, so there’s no one traveling to the city, and there’s no chance of me slipping off to the beach and avoiding writing anything. I can literally blog all weekend! Until the power goes out anyway.

In case you happen to be concerned, my apartment in Manhattan’s Lower East Side is outside of the evacuation zone (even the extended zone for a Category 4 landfall). Since Irene is now a Category 1 and may be down to a Tropical Storm when it gets here, my location should be fine. Thanks for asking.

Due to the month of articles and posts that have accrued since the last time I did one of these, I’m splitting this post into two chunks. If the power is still on tomorrow, I’ll post Part 2!

If You Can Only Read One:

  • The Big Lie (Dr. Michael Eades) – “Nutritionally I can’t think of a bigger lie than the one claiming that fats in general and saturated fats in particular are bad for us.”  Amen.  Read this.

Bonus, Newly Popular Old Fitfinity Article:

  • Lift Like A Girl – For some reason, this older post got lit up on August 18 with a ton of traffic, most of it from Facebook.  It picked up about 50 likes in one day.  Not sure what was going on, but I’m OK with it.
It’s a lot, but they’re all worth a read!  Back tomorrow with even more if the power stays on.  Cross your fingers!
