There's some that I know I saw a millionty times, and make sense, but some of those are geocities level dumb. FB reposts by people's aunts must inflate the numbers.

Side bar: I heard someone on TV try to make a Geocities joke, but pronounced it “Geo-sights”, and I think I groaned out loud

I've been doing small group training sessions 3 times a week at the gym since September, but I'm still figuring out my diet, and how to get the amounts of protein I need to get the results I want, especially after my weigh in on Sunday didn't really show the amount of change I'd hoped for.

Found a blog I initially liked, with some good info, but it go into more than just fitness...and then it recommended some book by Mike Cernovich. Ugh. Hard pass.
