Today’s weight was 180.5 pounds. I’m not making any progress in my new goal of getting down to 175 but at least I’m holding steady at the 180 lb range. I kept up the running this week and ran three times.
I wanted to highlight a new blog that was also featured in the latest Carnival of Personal Finance that I hosted on Monday.
Squawkfox.com is a very entertaining blog which covers personal finance, investing, frugal foods, some calculators which she created and much, much more with a healthy dose of puns thrown in. I took the time to read through her archives and the following items caught my eye:
The post that was awarded the “top hoser” award from the carnival – Ten financial lessons I learned from my dog – if you haven’t read it, then read it now.
Why good debt is a lie – I don’t agree with everything she says, but she makes some great points – particularly about education.
How to soak and cook dried beans – Ok this actually caught my wife’s eye who went out and bought several tons of dried beans.
Other posts of note
I’ve been meaning to link to this post for weeks – Clever Dude gives a well-photographed post on how he makes his sandwiches for lunch in bulk. I don’t know why I like this kind of stuff, I just do.
