→ Photographic Series Showing What 200 Calories Looks Like in Different Foods | Via artFido

WiseGEEK just conducted a very visual and informative study and presented a photo series, which compares what 200 calories actually look like in different foods. The study compares 71 different foods, and is originally organized going from low to high calorie density. You can really tell how the quantities are getting smaller towards the end of the list!

This one makes me cringe A LOT. Jon and I both bike are town regularly and are fully aware of the dangers of drivers not paying attention. You can follow all the road rules as a biker, and people still won’t notice you.

Getting in a crash is one of the scariest things that can happen to a cyclist. Even worse is when police assume that bicyclists are always at fault, even if they’ve got evidence to the contrary.

This one’s a couple weeks old at this point. If you’ve seen it, watch it again. I adore these children.

She’s just started making videos of her paintings, but Casey’s been painting for years. “My love for art began in Kindergarten.

As with all the creative outlets there are, painting has been with me the longest.”

This makes me chuckle. I’m sure my tweets were included in her rant. Welcome to the “club” Courtney! 🙂

In keeping with my loose-tongue tendency, I recently vented to a friend about how annoyed I get when avid exercisers tout their athletic achievements and workout regimens online. Confession: I’m now the guilty party. Hear me out.

I do exercise fairly regularly, but I don’t push myself like these “freaks” whose calorie counts I see on Twitter. In other words, you won’t see me doing burpees and planks as a morning warm–up. But … I have to say I owe an apology to all the workout peeps whose names I’ve slandered.
