I am in complete control of the food I eat because I'm perfect and immune to temptation. For the rest of you, however, you may benefit from some of these clever tips to help curb overeating. (Note: Some of these ideas may seem silly, but if Richard Wiseman cites a study, you should believe it.)
After months of silence, I come out with this gem of a post! Enjoy!
You can hate the Citibike program because the docking stations are eyesores, but you also have to admit that there's an upside as well. Anything that makes the subways and roads less congested while giving New Yorkers a chance to be more active can't be all that bad. Will using a shared bike save you money and make your life easier? Filmmaker Casey Neistat attempts to answer the question in this unscientific, slightly tongue-in-cheek video. His overall impression: although not perfect, it's the best way to get around the city.
There have been requests for new moves. Be careful what you ask for....
Move over, Beyonce. There's a new diva in town. Prepare to fall under the spell of "Gnesa."
OK, this Zumba thing has gone too far now....
That Zsa Zsa sure knows how to work up a sweat. Thanks for the link, Dave!
Remember when Sam proposed to Lisa at the end of step class? Well the wedding was this past weekend at a vineyard on the North Fork, and it was quite the event. Not only did Jamie help coordinate the surprise proposal, he also gave a speech at the wedding, "reenacting" the whole thing. The scene of course required that a step class take place, so Eddy, Lukas, and I were there to oblige.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this is perhaps the only step class ever to be held at a wedding reception.
Move over, Old Spice guy, there's a new stud in town. It's Norway's new celebrity, Mr. Milk! Hmm... he looks familiar. Where have I seen this guy before?
"The Heart Attack Grill diet is not for everyone. Side effects may include sudden weight gain, repeated increase of wardrobe size, back pain, male breast growth, loss of sexual partners, lung cancer, tooth decay, liver sclerosis, stroke, and an inability to see your penis. In some cases, mild death may occur."
Ho, ho! That is funny stuff!!
I've already mentioned the Heart Attack Grill in a previous post. Why mention it again now? Blair River, the man in this video, passed away earlier this month. He was 575 pounds and 29 years old.
From Jon Basso, the restaurant's founder and the jackass dressed as a doctor in the commercial: "Cynical people might think this (River's death) is funny."
Jon Basso, on the other hand, takes morbid obesity very seriously.
The rat alone would have been enough for me to jump out the window of a moving train. This takes the nightmare to a whole new level. Those of you who make fun of my fear of rats, witness this horror.
I flip my latkes in the air sometimes sayin ayy ohh spin the dreidel.Just wanna celebrate for all eight nights singin ayy oh, light the candles.
(Sung to the tune of Taio Cruz's "Dynamite," which you might recognize from the music in class.)
I'm not sure, but I think this video kicks ass. Thanks, Barbara!!
Be forewarned. Next time I turn down the music after class to make an announcement, something like this could happen to you....
Congratulations to a very brave Sam and a very surprised Lisa. Thanks to Lukas for the footage.
UPDATE: For a different angle of the big event, check out Jamie's video as well.
We've all seen some version of this guy in action. This gym claims that their locations are meathead free, thanks to their "Judgement Free Zone" philosophy. In other words, "members can relax, get in shape, and have fun without being subjected to the hard-core, look-at-me attitude that exists in too many gyms."
It's hard to tell how much of this idea is a gimmick and how much is actually enforced. The douchebag in the commercial is, after all, signing up for a membership as the stunned woman sits and stares.
By the way, I've been to one of their locations out on Long Island. It appears that there is some policing of their members, as evidenced by their "lunk alarm."
Thanks to Daniel for the video link.
When these sexy babes aren't skydiving, motorbiking, scuba diving, or helicopter flying, they're high-kicking and step-touching in the aerobics room. It makes perfect sense. What better way to hide your identity as a government agent than to masquerade as an aerobics instructor! The premise seems airtight to me, so I'm puzzled as to why this pilot for "Velvet" never took off.
Thanks, Mike, for the link!
What's country hip hop, you ask? Well it's only the newest trend in country line dancing. Don't take my word for it, though. Let Diane Horner show you how it's done.
Check out this hilarious clip from the Onion News Network. Why post it here? Take a look at the newscaster -- he should look vaguely familiar.
