OK. So you all put on 97 pounds eating chocolate cake and not going to the gym over Christmas. Admit it! I know I did.
Today is of course the start of a new working year, and I’ll be trooping into the gym tonight for the first time in a few weeks. You might also want to consider a couple of sites that may help you make that resolution. (And no I am not being paid to write this!)
The first is from the nice people at Discovery Health (no, not the 1979 ELO album). They have a site up which I mentioned last week,for their National Health Challenge. THCB has two copies of this book on getting thin(ner) and healthier by the perky looking Pamela Peeke to give away. Let me know if you want one (and no I’m not getting a cut for advertising it…)
The second is an interesting idea, which seems to be along the lines of peer-pressure weight-watchers. It’s called PeerTrainer, and the reason I know about it is because a real doctor, Pat Salber — who knows lots about the problems of obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes — is writing a blog there telling you how to stay thin and healthy. I think the concept is eat less and exercise more, but see Pat’s blog for details
