11 in the books, 3 weeks remain! By the time next installment rolls around, we will have officially watched 2018 Ducks football. It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

I’ve been on a bit of a New York Times kick this morning, they’ve got a decent fitness blog apparently. Written by Gretchen Reynolds, it covers a lot of trendy topics but she does cut through the hype & presents some solid data in each entry.

Apparently you can overcome this by increasing exercise duration, but you still have to watch portions & diet if you want to reliably lose weight. Definitely a lesson I learned in the 1st half of WTF.
