August Resolutions & Blog Update

So, I'm sorry for my absence--I've been traveling and my family has had a few bumps (that are turning out fine), but I'm back. Bad News: LisaD is going to stop being a regular contributor here, but good news, she's starting her own blog soon! She may still post here now and again, but for now she needs to concentrate on finishing her graduate work & launching her own site.

For now, I've decided to return to the earlier format that tracked my fitness progress, mixed with some public policy commentating, etc. So, it'll be a bit more personal & life-style oriented, but they'll still be smart-pants critiques regarding feminism, women's health, pop-culture, etc. Speaking of sound public policy, YAY! The HHS announced today that birth-control and other reproductive health care for women will be classified as preventative which means no co-pays! This is seriously great news!!! Also, breast-feeding aides, such as pumps, will also be covered. So this is a victory for women all around!!!

Now, onto my August Resolutions:

1. Get under 200 lbs (I'm very close); I know that this is a more straight-forward weight-loss goal and less a health-goal, but its my damn goal and I can seriously realize it in a very healthy manner because I'm only pounds away!
2. Concentrate on weight-training & study the possibility of hiring a personal trainer for a specific period of time.
3. Eat more super-foods and anti-oxidants.


  1. I am Ryan "Energizer" Ehmann, owner of Altitude Fitness and I’ve been out of shape several times in my life, so beat down – tens of thousands of dollars in debt, depressed and my self-esteem so crushed that I was afraid to go out in public. I turned to the fitness industry as the vehicle to heal my mind and body, and that’s when my dreams began to become a reality. The power of a proven fitness program is life changing so just imagine how much more you could give to your family, career and friends if you were on top of your game?

    There is a champion in everyone…including YOU!

    If you’ve ever wanted to lose that extra 12, 18, 24, 36 (or MORE!) inches of Body Fat off your frame and experience the benefits of a healthier lifestyle, then this message will cut to the chase and give you the answers you’re looking for. My fat loss training system have taken me 28,882 hours and 10 years of personal training to Master it so years ago I quit working at Gold's Gym as the Fitness Manager and opened a small, private workout facility to educate people about foods, fitness and lifestyle. Altitude fitness is a fun family atmosphere that people come as they are in grey sweets, white T-shirts, no make-up and they are accepted as a team member who want to learn and get in shape. No one is judged, it's not a fashion show and no matter your health or fitness shape you are a part of the Fat Loss Team working together.

    I promise my "Fat Burning Zone" training program will get you to LOSE 12 inches in 12 workouts, Energize your mind, shrink body fat, sky rocket your confidence, increase your self image of yourself, improve the quality of your life and people will be saying, "WOW, you look AMAZING and have a GLOW of happiness! This will be the last fitness program you ever do...............Wooo Hoooo

  3. Hi,
    I have a quick question about your blog, do you think you could email me?

  4. Most men have a 1-track mind when it involves sexual issues—getting to their own climax. Thinking of your partner is more than simply taking part in foreplay. During sexual activity, rather than thrusting forward to your own orgasm, strive to focus on her erogenous zones while finding a means to manually stimulate her arousal. Simply follow the information so you'll extend your ejaculation amount. With apply and self-management, you'll be able to have your partner expertise a climax that she has not known before.
