    I've been trying to run. Last week I was able to run 400 m as my first interval before my breathing fell apart. Today I talked to a couple colleagues and they suggested I slow down, shorten my stride and increase my cadence. I tried this and was able to run about a half mile today on the way...
  3. Question and Answer
    Am jumping off from a thread about rolling blackouts. Has anyone used a car battery in an emergency to run a household fan. I am just thinking I should be prepared in case the electric goes out and it is crazy hot outside. I need ac due to health and thought this might be an idea. Any...

    If anyone's following the barefoot kith, you'd know that I'm running barefoot...sort of to get over the hump/slump/plateau in loosing weight. Just did about 4 miles at a 10 minute pace. Feel pretty good about that. I've only been (seriously) running for a couple months. Anyone else got a...

    You have until January 7th to update final numbers from 2010's Emergency Fund Booster Challenge. Any contributions made to your EF in 2010 must be posted BEFORE 1/7 to ensure they are accepted. Once I post my own final update on 1/7, I'll start doing the math, and then you'll be TOO LATE...
  6. Coupons
    My wonderful DH created me a program from Excel last night to help me track my spending and savings for 2011. I told him I wanted something to tell me exactly how much I saved using coupons. I wanted to see if it is really worth my time to find, clip, and sort all those coupons. He created a...

    I read these boards often, and I have learned so much for you all. I have a question that might have already been asked. If so please forgive me. We just had to purchase a car. We haven't had a car payment in 15 years, so we are havin to adjust to havin this payment each month. My question...

    Thought I'd start this thread to discuss the show. Palooka, I agree with you about what you said in the other thread...that guy definitely should have gone home. I felt horrible for the woman who had something in her eye, and the way the other contestants talked about her! I don't care what...

    That is, it will be a running commentary if anyone, besides me, is watching! I've never watched this show before, and dh and I needed something easy to watch while we were folding laundry last week. We got suckered in and watched again this week. At this point, I believe we are hooked. So...

    Did anyone watch last night? I was at my knitting group and missed the first 45 minutes, but I did see at least 4 dancers. My prediction: viewers will keep Pam Anderson on the show far longer than she deserves to be. Bruno gave her performance an 8? C'mon now! Thank goodness Len told it like it...

    Running on the treadmill full gate, kicking butt and taking names, hit the 3 mile mark and the dude beside me rips one that is silent but deadly. So the question was whether to endure it or start my workout over and move treadmills. What would you have done :toothy: Andrea

    I am so excited for this to start on Feb. 2nd. (3 hr premiere, starting at 8 pm EST). I wonder if they'll do a re-cap first. I need it w/my horrible memory. This is the last season, and while I can't wait to find out what happens, I am worried that it will be a disappointment once all is...

    What did you all think of the first show? I was thrilled to see that girl go home (sorry I can't remember her name). How could they think that their room looked good? The torn/cut comforters, curtains hanging by tape, the floor w/peeling paint, etc. :ugh: It was just a disaster. Did anyone...

    Interesting beginning show. I think they knew they had to change some things to liven it up a bit. I can't believe Jessie is back. I have to say I'm glad it didn't turn out to be the little blond girl (can't remember her name). Her voice annoyed me. Anyway, I'm glad the show is back. :woohoo...

  17. Just Tips
    so we all know how much electricity these fridges are eating up...but they only 'use' electric when they are actually running (cooling down)...so i thought what about this to keep them colder thus running less....thus less electricity used....thus LOWER electric bill....on and on..... i keep...

    Who is watching? I actually remembered to watch tonight. :D I was surprised to see the team that was eliminated. I didn't care for that guy yelling at his wife. And holy cow, bungee jumping? I think Dave & I would have gone home right then. :laughinghard:

    Thanks to Darlene for posting the reminder yesterday. I hadn't even seen any promo's for it and would have missed it otherwise. :smooch: Anyway, so what did you all think? I'm glad that the initial two weren't voted off right away. That wouldn't have been right IMO. Though I will say that Sandy...

    I missed the first week but saw last night's episode. So what did you think? I thought he looked pretty annoyed to see the girl from Brazil waiting for him in the limo (can't remember her name). And the girl (Molly?) who took his attention away from someone else when she already had a rose?
