Slow and Steady Wins…

Slow and steady wins the race, right?

Ok, I admit, this is probably not a title you would expect for a post on a blog having to do with fitness and health. Especially today. We live in a society that has a go go go mentality. Fast food, fast internet, texting. We live in a society where we want results now! People get impatient when a web page takes more than a couple of seconds to load, or someone will send a text and wonder why they haven’t had a reply, you know, it’s already been a minute!

Along with all this comes our expectations with fitness, and health to a lesser degree. A lot of people want fast results. Although it took them 1, 2, 5 years or longer to get to where they are today, they expect to be back to perfect health, or have that killer body within a few weeks. It just isn’t reasonable to think these things, especially if you are looking for results that will stay with you a year, 2, or 3 or a lifetime from now. In fact it can be dangerous. If you are looking for fast results, that can lead to people making dangerous decisions, such as drastic calorie reduction changes to their diet that can have long term negative impact. People will get hooked on the latest exercise regimen; Palates, Zumba, px90, etc. By no means am I disparaging these programs. If they work for you, then great! My point is people will look to these programs to get fast results, not always realizing that they are made up of techniques, methods that have been around a long time. Yes, there are methods to exercising that can increase positive results sooner, but you still need to put in the time, and work. I am a strong proponent of exercising smartly, and along with that comes putting in the hard work.

That’s one point I wanted to make about how ‘fast’ is not always the best approach to your health and fitness. The other point is how speed plays a role in our actual workout. I want to talk about how this applies to resistance training, and cardio training.

Resistance Training

Lets look at common goals and benefits of resistance training; increased strength, increased muscle size, improved coordination, increased bone strength, increased resting metabolic rate. There are more, but lets stick with these ones. Excellent goals. So in the spirit of this post, how do we get there sooner? Let’s start by not getting caught up in numbers. Getting stuck on numbers when resistance training will impede us reaching our goals, and can also be dangerous. By getting stuck on numbers I am referring to how much can I bench press/squat/etc? How many pushups can I do? Why is my friend using more weight that I am? Why am I always the last in my class to finish the pushup challenge?

Why do we do this? Because we are human! By nature we are competitive. No one wants to be last. We all grew up being told not to be last whether in sports, class, etc. Let’s look at a quote from a famous football coach:

Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.

To me, this quote means something different than how it has been used over the years to motivate people, teams. I’ll tell you what it mean to me at the end of this post. But, back to the whole speed thing.

Why is getting caught up in numbers bad? Because most times it means we sacrifice technique, because to get those numbers we end up rushing through our pushups, not using full technique, we add more weight to the bar, speeding up and sometimes swinging the bar to pull in other muscle groups to help with the lift (this is the dangerous part). Ultimately we end up increasing the time it will take to reach our goals. Unbelievable isn’t it, we end up sabotaging ourselves, not even realizing it.

Slow down

Instead of worrying about numbers, let’s slow down and use proper technique. If you aren’t sure or have questions about technique for any exercise, talk to a personal trainer. A great way of slowing down is to adopt a cadence when doing your exercise. I recommend the following cadence: 2:1:4:0. I’ll explain this using pushups. Let’s start our pushups with our body on the ground. Now slowly raise your body using the first number of our cadence 2, for the count to reach the top of the movement. This is the concentric movement of the exercise. Hold for one second (2nd number), then lower for 4 seconds (the third number) being sure to lower until your arms are bent at 90 degrees. This is the eccentric movement of the push up. Now, do not rest, that’s why the last number is 0. Right back into your next push up.

A lot tougher isn’t it! I have no doubt that you will find your pushups much harder to do, and you will not be able to do as many. But that’s awesome! That’s why you do resistance training. You are training smart, and enabling yourself to get to your goal sooner! The slower pace is working your muscles harder, and it is much easier to execute proper technique, and not get injured. Try this with other exercise such as squats, lat pull downs. Remember the formula though, and which number is for the concentric and eccentric part of the exercise. If you aren’t sure which is the concentric movement, and which is the eccentric, consult with a personal trainer, and they can help you.

Cardio Training

The same principle can be applied to cardio training, such as running, cycling, etc. As I mentioned in another article, you don’t want to train cardio at the same pace, all the time. You need to mix it up. HIITS, slow long runs, tempo runs, hills, etc. But, keeping in mind that speed can be bad, when doing faster runs as an example, do not sacrifice technique for speed! You may get injured immediately, or even worse is ending up with an injury down the road due to repetitive strain because of improper technique. When you are not able to perform the proper technique, other muscles will be recruited to meet the demand, muscles that typically are not used for this purpose, thus risking injury. Posture will get compromised, excessive loads can be placed on your joints. All bad things.

When speed is ok

I love talking about training smart. The more we understand about training, the better we become, and we win! Less injuries, obtaining our goals, feeling better. Let me use my own experience as an example on when speed is ok. If you have read my bio, you know I spend time studying and practicing Karate. One of the kicks we work on is called a round house kick. A very common kick, but like anything, it can take a long time to get it to work well. A technical kick that a lot of things have to work together to perform it well. So we spend a lot of time focusing on the technique of the kick. Breaking it down into individual elements. When practicing this kick for technique, it’s a slower kick.

In my Saturday combat fitness class, we will take that kick and speed it up and get probably 3 to 4 times as many kicks on the heavy bag than when I practice this kick as a Karate student. Why? In this example from my Saturday’s class, it’s more a cardio drill than a technique drill. The purpose is to exhaust you, to get you to that point that you are so tired you may only be able to get in one more kick. So as a student in both classes, I have to understand the purpose of the drill, or exercise. This is training smart. It’s understanding the goal of the exercise.

Be slow, be smart

“Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.” I said earlier that I would explain what this means to me. To me, winning isn’t how I do compared to others, it’s how I do compared to the Darryl from the last workout. Did I do the best I can do? It doesn’t mean I had to perform more pushups, or do more superman squats, or more round house kicks. It’s did I do the best I can do.

You can’t expect to always do better number wise (remember, don’t get hung up on numbers) because your body just doesn’t work that way. You may not have enough energy stores in your body for this workout, you may be having a stressful day, and you may not have had adequate sleep. But what you can do is do your best, everytime!

I think that’s a fair thing to ask of yourself, don’t you? You know why? Because you owe it to yourself, and don’t let anyone tell you different!

Yours in health,

Darryl

  1. I have been exploring for a bit for any high quality articles or weblog posts on this sort of house . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this web site. Reading this info So i¡¦m happy to exhibit that I have a very good uncanny feeling I came upon exactly what I needed. I most no doubt will make certain to do not fail to remember this site and provides it a glance on a continuing basis.

  2. Edellistä viestiäni tosin tarkennan vielä sen verran, että mulla ei ole hajuakaan missä nuo rilsin kengät oikeasti valmistetaan. Mutta joka tapauksessa suunnittelun pitäisi olla suomalaista ja olisin kuvitellut että brändiin kuuluu laadukkaiden materiaalien käyttö. Monet halpismerkitkin ovat ryhtyneet alleviivaamaan käyttävänsä aitoa nahkaa ja se tuntuu monille riittävän laadukkaan kengän tuntomerkiksi. Mutta jos pohja on muovia ja siis ihan täyttä paskaa, niin voiko se kenkä oikeasti kestää niin kauan kuin ennen vanhaan laadukkaat nahkakengät kesti?

  3. THANK YOU FOR THE GIVEAWAY! I would love to win this iPad case because it is well design and fashionable. The gold and fuchsia accents scream GIRLY.. I am able to take pictures and make a video without taking it out the case and that is excel let ( must have detail in every case). I can store a pen and and documents.

  5. HiIs there some nifty way you can make this dynamically update based on a text string in e.g. a forum?I would like it to be used to include a text in an avatar I use on a forum, so it would be superb if it could pull the text from the forum where I have my public profile.

  6. Har pÃ¥ det sidste klikkede mig ind pÃ¥ jeres blog, som jeg synes rigtig godt om, oftere og oftere! Dog er det først gÃ¥et op for mig nu, at du, Line, Ã¥benbart hedder Line Love i virkeligheden – troede Love var et kælenavn. Blev derfor lige nysgerrig, om Love udtales pÃ¥ engelsk eller dansk?

  8. Lies, Lies, and More Lies.If these people represent the community, then you better get rid of them. According to latest videos and blogs left from real YouTube community members, they are leaving YouTube. Why?Because of the censorship. Because they are tired of being trolled and suspended for no reason. But mainly because YouTube does not care about their community members.

  9. Obama is a pathological puzzle. A confusion. Who is he? What formed him? What does he believe? What makes him tick. The more he is before us, the deeper our wondering. 67 million people saw him up close at the debate. That was our God’s doing.

  10. Annegb- YOU ARE BACK!!!!!! I was going to Google Lent and find out when it was over. This was the lonnnngggessttt religious observance ever. I am glad you did it, but honestly I can’t imagine doing Lent for myself. I struggle just to do the Mormon stuff, let alone borrow from my religious friends.No more leaving for extended periods. As you can tell from the lack of action on this site, we obviously need you. Badly.

  11. David – I take it that you live in Sydney then.Really, I don’t buy this argument that APEC had to be held in Sydney because it’s the capital of business etc. APEC isn’t normally held in major cities for all the problems that have been outlined so far.

  12. Everyone is NOT making fun of you at that dinner because you’re “a man of the sauces,” Kade. They’re making fun of you because you haven’t realized that you’re a fucking degenerate coke fiend who values nothing besides your coke and your rep and your journey to join grandmama in Ukranian hell.

  14. Excellent article, thank you.You say:"Because the Star and Crescent and the Ramadan dinners both signified a deliberate blindness to the threat of Islamic terrorism"I think you're too kind to the ruling elite. Because the more I read articles such as this one, the more and more convincved I am that they are embracing Islam knowingly and deliberately. Proud Brit.

  15. Thank you a lot for giving everyone such a spectacular possiblity to read from this web site. It’s usually very pleasant and packed with amusement for me personally and my office co-workers to visit your website at the very least thrice weekly to learn the newest stuff you have got. Of course, I am usually impressed with all the fantastic suggestions served by you. Certain 2 ideas in this article are undeniably the most beneficial I have had.

  16. I and also my guys appeared to be viewing the excellent information located on the website while all of the sudden came up with a terrible suspicion I never expressed respect to you for those secrets. All the ladies appeared to be totally warmed to see all of them and have in fact been tapping into these things. Thanks for indeed being quite accommodating and then for going for this kind of exceptional things most people are really eager to be aware of. Our own honest regret for not expressing appreciation to you sooner.

  18. I was just searching for this information for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Usually the top sites are full of garbage.

  19. Posted by on October 13, 2012 at 3:00 pm Many thanks Stuart!When I had joined I did it for the sole purpose to farm out my “newbie” followers, rather than teaching them myself.The biggest blessing I had in this experience was the lesson learned: “If you want to do something right, you have to do it yourself!”I, too have the same feeling that EN is too much “in your face” and also, if you look closely at it, the people that are doing well are those who do have many many followers. “Guru’s in the field”DonnaDonna Merrill recently posted..

  21. Field, the answer is there is no God, thats why 2 year olds get Leukemia and Ted Kennedy lives to his 80's…And if there IS a God, he doesn't love you, doesn't like you, in all probability, he hates you. That sucks about Haiti, I was turned onto "StarTrek TNG" by a butcher by the name of "Jean Luc"…Frank

  22. ‘In my opinion, using creation and evolution as topics for critical-thinking exercises in primary and secondary schools is virtually guaranteed to confuse students about evolution and may lead them to reject one of the major themes in science.’That just about says it all… Yet we still try to portray science as being built on the scientific method and logical weighing up of the evidence. When scientists start spouting pseudo-evangelistic mumbo-jumbo like this, I start to feel ashamed to be a scientist and science educator.Let’s be honest, this isn’t about science, it’s about ideology.

  24. I’d like to know if these guys are associated with Fx MoneyMap. Very similar looking charts. FX MoneyMap has been around a long time. I have no experience with it so I couldnt tell you if they are traded the same as FxPM.

  30. Les avis divergent tellement sur ce livre ! J’ai tendance à ne jamais acheter un livre qui a un succès phénoménal, ça me fait peur de savoir qu’on lit tous la même chose, ça met fin aux « ah tiens, j’ai lu un super livre, faut que je te le passe ! ». Je n’ai jamais lu le Da Vinci Code, je ne lirai jamais celui-ci, je crois…

  34. СтаніславЗа межами України – дивіться якою хочете мовою. А в нашій державі мова лиш одна офіційна – українська. Нею й мають обслуговуватись усі сфери суспільства. Тому не пишіть більше коментарі типу “Я хочу…”, “Ущимляете права…”. Існує закон, який все і регулює. І так дожилися, що закониb27 порушують…

  35. to have said, I would need to change my mind about this. But then you could be anyone, claiming anything, or you could have misunderstood what the street warden meant just as Mr Lightwood could have misunderstood that. Lots of things are possible, and I remain skeptical – that is part of my nature.

  36. Always a pleasure to read the roundups, even if it’s a (brilliant!) procrastinating technique. And hopefully I can write something good enough soon to make the next roundup. Which is to say (sorry for the plug), as of yesterday Darkness at Noon is back in business…In the meantime, I’d better back up all my stuff in case the hackers are still on the loose!

  37. There are many drugs for this, they work differently on different people. But for me, after eating different drugs for years without any good remedy, just bad side effects. Two years ago I tried Lamotrigine, I have stayed with it since. it changed my life It took my deep depressions away, and the crazy mania. My side effects are little sweating a while after taking pill. I dream very much from it also, thats is nice and fun. I feel good for 2 yrs now. Lamotrigine is very good. Consult a doctor.

  38. I was planning to do the next part but the weather have been impossible to work with gum paste + I had to focus on the family dyring the last month. It will come as I have planned it for so long. So please be a little more patience

  39. Ya se me habían olvidado nuestras caras al oir que Georgia estaba en guerra, y pensar que estaba entre la tercera posibilidad…Tranqui que Roma también fue irrepetible, y a juzgar por el número de mails y puñaladas que nos hemos lanzado (si comparamos) las Highlands prometen.

  40. Losing Curzi could not have hurt that much as they will be playing in the county finals Friday. Also I am hearing that Gill just lost big to Rutgers Prep in the Prep state finals. Voorhees vs NH on Friday should a great game, Voorhees lost to NH twice this year, I can’t see it happening a third time, good luck to all teams playing the county finals.

  41. Une bien jolie photo avec une base toute simple, comme quoi, nul besoin de grandes mises en scène !!

  42. Amigos de La Vida en Bici: En marzo me enteré de la existencia de este blog y pude aprovechar el mapa para varios recorridos. Quería precisar que la bicisenda de la calle Serrano, que continuaba en Borges hasta la Plaza Cortázar, ya se prolongó hasta la avenida Santa Fe, justo frente a Plaza Italia. Abrazos.

  43. Zor, tengo libros MUY raros de Lem en formato electrónico y en español, como “Vacío Perfecto”, el segundo de su serie de prólogos imaginarios ¿Quieres que eche un vistazo y te los mande? Por cierto, este relato tiene una traducción nueva. El mejor traductor de Lem, para mí, es Jadwiga Maurizio, porque tiene una coña para inventarse las palabras que utiliza Lem… pues eso, pima, murquia, guadoliza, sepulca… Te aseguro que las mismas palabras en el original polaco son mucho menos coñeras.

  45. I don’t see that too often. It sounds like there would be no violation of manufacturers terms – but I’d hate to advise that it would be okay in every case. When in doubt, and to be safe, I’d recommend contacting the coupon distributor. Most times, they reply back pretty quickly!

Anni di martellamento totale di Chianti in tutte la salse e in ogni dove hanno prodotto la confusione più totale allo scopo commerciale per aggrapparsi ad un nome certo e conosciuto infischiandosene completamente delle origini e da dove questo nome uscisse, quindi per quel che vale adesso, che sia Chianti anche il vino fatto in California va bene uguale.

  48. Takk for kommentaren din! Jeg er ganske riktig på hytten akkurat nå (siden onsdag), så derfor noe mindre blogging enn vanlig (Telenor og mobilt bredbånd etc etc) skal prøve å ta en liten runde på ABC nå. Jeg har ikke hatt noen problemer med å komme inn på blogger, men jeg bruker Mozilla. Derimot vet jeg at IE6 er notorisk problematisk og at oppgradering til IE 7 og IE 8 er sterkt anbefalt. Men Mozilla er best.PS Lammene tilhører min fetter, men bildene er tatt tidligere i vår.

  49. Tara – CELESTE! What can I say? These are AMAZING! From the minute I met you I enjoyed working with you. From our day out at the beach (which was a blast despite the cold!) to the actual wedding day you proved yourself to be the most fun photographer ever and it shows through every moment you captured. It’s so exciting to be ON the blog!! You are too talented for words :0) Thank you for everything!

  50. I have recently started a web site, the info you provide on this website has helped me tremendously. Thank you for all of your time & work. “The man who fights for his fellow-man is a better man than the one who fights for himself.” by Clarence Darrow.

  51. ooohhhh i love this. i had done this before. the only part i done like is the tying part. must have four hands. we used muslin clothes and wrap around raw knuckles and cook in pressure cooker. i love it with garlic vineger sauce and such a presentable dish.

  52. casualobserver Thanks for posting this reader’s digest version, Joe. I had no interest in trying to follow all the various reporting on this story other than this aspect……”the FBI seemingly concluded there was no security breach, no serious criminal activity, and therefore no need to take things any further.”But, this short amount of soap opera was quite palatable.

  53. Ooo yes i think there was a choice…I remember that orchid hanger thingamajig…I also remembered I hammered someone’s fingers during KH.Poor girl.It is if you’re not stuck in traffic and kinda ‘forced’ into buying presents..and it’s not one or two presents,its roughly 3 presents per person.

  54. Sehr pessimistische Sichtweise, aber unterhaltsam 😉 so risikoreiche Finanzgeschäfte sind nicht jedermanns Sache. Wir in unserem Unternehmen setzen da lieber auf solide Einsparungen und “reale” Arbeiten. Wir übernehmen für andere Firmen die IT und so entsteht eine win-win-Situation, da ist wenig Risiko vorhanden, viele Grüsse!

  55. Terrific reminder that all who suffer in war are human. Yes, humans suffer. They can tell us about it. Dogs of war can’t, so they rely on us to see they have changed and get them help. Thanks for the reminder. Wonderful post.

  56. I have that DVD, The Lives of Others. It’s been a revelation to me that people who survived the holocaust and other atrocities do so by coming to terms with the fact that we’re all, given the circumstances, capable of doing the unthinkable. Very sobering. I’m glad you stepped across that borderline, I like to think I would have but I really can’t say for sure. You and Mr V have a great Holiday Season, you’ve earned it.

  57. the artist is anti-capitalist? – only the author of this article. His statement, if you listen to the whole interview, is that the financial institutions are metaphorically on fire because of their abandonment of real capitalism and preferring to use too-big-too-fail, bail-out, loss of moral hazard financing instead. Government protection of unethical banking isn’t capitalism, its fascism.To add: Alex Schaefer seems to me to be a pro-capitalist and a very smart one at that. Bet the current administration didn’t have to send him $59B of tax payer money to stay afloat.

  58. BEES! Yes get a hive or two of bees. Everyone should/could have a hive even in a town/city it is possible. One hive of good producers can make 3-5 gallons of honey a year with enough left for the girls to survive over winter.I LOVE my bee hives. It costs about $250-300 to buy and start a hive (start with a Nuc hive not 5# of bees). BEES!

  59. I don’t … @dpas2009 I don’t trust republicans right now for 2 reasons. A. They fight FOR inequality (Apparently Gay marriage will rip the country apart) and B. They are technophobes who propose demented laws because they think that because they can own an e-mail they are internet experts.Our equivalent in Canada is the Conservatives. Harper is a horrible criminal. Ask anyone in Canada and they will say Jack Layton of the NDP should have been PM before he died, not Harper.

  60. Hey Jonathon,Mail-order razors. I think mail-order subscription products have to brand well. Being a coffee guru, you may have heard of Tonx – – mail-order (small batch) roasted coffee subscription.I was curious about it, as I am a coffee snob myself. My friend had some sent to me for my birthday. It was great coffee, and their branding was excellent (in my opinion better than the coffee). You should check it out if you haven’t, it’s a little pricey, but you may find it worth it since you love coffee.

  62. Sabe o pior? É que o Tilke é piloto! E parece que adora dar suas voltinhas pelo Nordschleife…Minha proposta para tornar os circuitos melhores é a diminuição da margem de erro do piloto. Não pode haver um estacionamento da Disney World depois de cada curva, a Fórmula 1 não pode ser um jogo de video game Arcade, em que os erros podem todos ser perdoados.

  63. Filha do Coronel / Cesar,Desde quando as filhas de militar recebem pensões “milionárias”??? Quanta asneira junta!!! Algumas pessoas leem o que sai na revista Veja e tomam como VERDADES ABSOLUTAS. A pensão deixada é uma mixaria, se considerarmos que esse dinheiro é um DIREITO garantido às filhas e esposas de militares…Ou por acaso você não sabe que todos os meses o militar contribui com uma porcentagem do seu soldo para garantir esse DIREITO às suas esposas e filhas???…Vá se informar antes de falar asneiras!!!Gostei deste comentário ou não: 2

  64. The business model of these large banks is so unsustainable that from now on they will only be able to survive by receiving massive subsidies from taxpayers, who are mostly workers and small businesses. In such a dysfunctional system, it is critical to maintain strong personal relationships with government decision makers on the one hand, and to have to those officials rely on you for guidance on the other.

  70. Tudo muito bonito e planejado, mas quem paga o pato é a natureza sendo exaurida de seus recursos e futuramente nosso destino caminhando para o fim insustentável do modelo que ainda insistimos em seguir neste planeta. Os olhos seguem fechados achando que o planeta está equilibrado e que nossos recursos não acabam… que pena!

  71. Originalai nu baik tu skiest vienÄ… syki. Buvau poroje pro gaming eventų užsienyje. Žinok ten atvažiuoja realÅ«s žmonÄ—s, uždirbantys realius pinigus, lankantys realias Å¡alis, duodantys realius interviu. Ir realiai jie ne tokie užsicikline, tad kaip paÅ¡nekovai realiai yra įdomesni nei kai kurie realÅ«s asmenys. Jau nekalbant apie tokius realius žaidÄ—jus kuriems pavyksta tapti numeriu vienas ir realiai spininti savo brand’Ä….

  72. Enpä voisi olla enempää kanssasi samaa mieltä! Hajuttoman ja mauttoman markkinoinnin tekeminen on sama kuin lappaisi rahaa lapiolla ulos ikkunasta, hukkaan menee joka sentti. Jokainen pienikin tilaisuus näkyä pitää pystyä hyödyntämään tehokkaasti, eikä hyvä idea useinkaan vaadi isoja rahoja. Rohkeutta rohkeutta peräänkuulutamme!

  73. Спасибо огромное, DI . Два дня бился «Ã‘‡Ðž у меня он постоянно думает, что кнопка нажата?», а оказалось на PC2, к которой прицеплена кнопка, висит зашитый в фьюзах JTAG!

  74. Dear Asali, before this, I had no idea what hiba, kewra and davana smelled like either. Like my developer colleagues would say, google is your friend (mine in this case). Hiba is a type of coniferous tree, kewra has a sweet-fruity feel and davana is the most elusive, woody and fruity, reminiscent of apricot.

  75. Liebe Barbaraich glaube ich muss mal zu Dir kommen und Dich besuchen!!

  77. Bonjour,Sans même parler de calibrage, il faut commencer avant tout par stabiliser l’environnement dans lequel vous allez travailler afin de créer un espace de perception visuelle adéquat.Les valeurs « 120cd/m² en luminosité, 6500K en température, et 2,2 en Gamma » sont passe-partout et ne correspondent globalement pas à un process professionnel de traitement d’image ni à ce que préconisent les normes ISO.Bonne vulgarisation toutefois.

  78. Errata corrige: Norberto, condivido in pieno la tua analisi. Aggiungerei solo che un no di Vendola a de Magistris pregiudicherebbe e sarebbe in netta controtendenza a quel progetto che attraverso i suoi discorsi emerge. Ovvero una rinnovata idea di sinistra riformista che manca in Parlamento. Ed apparirebbe solo come una condivisione a quel sistema consociativista che tanti danni ha arrecato al Paese.

  79. Jag har inte läst den men det känns lite som Karin Alfredssons bok Kl 21:37. Budskapet författaren vill förmedla blir så viktigt att allt annat som intrig, karaktärer mme blir lidande och det blir ingen bra läsupplevelse. Det är ju inte så att man inte gillar budskapet men kanske en debattartikel hade passat bättre.

  80. P.S. Zaboravih napomenuti da bi više o novom Smash.com.hr-u možda nešto više htio napisati Tomislav pošto voli recenzirati, a i novih opcija na blogu ima, pa će možda nekoliko zvijezdica bolje sjesti, od nekoliko rečenica, sam osvrt zamišljen je kao dobronamjerna kritika, onako na prvu loptu, dečkima želimo puno uspjeha i zakup domene na duže od godine dana ;-).

  81. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  82. Hey Sue,What an amazing project you guys have bitten off here. I’m watching as a passive observer this time around (really, I have NO time), but am learning from all of your experiences just the same…My goal will be to try to keep commenting, even if I’m not posting so much…Cammy

  84. Thanks for your great tutorial, it helps me a lot!Although I have still some questions:- How do I customize the blog-template?I’m from Germany, and I would like to change the line “Mai 23, 2012 // by Christina // Blog // No Comments” to german language. I would also like to delete the “Blog Categories” in the sidebar.- Is it possible to show the latest blog-posts in one of the homeboxes?Thank you for your help!

  85. The root of your writing whilst sounding agreeable at first, did not really settle well with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a while. I nevertheless have got a problem with your leaps in logic and you would do nicely to help fill in all those breaks. When you actually can accomplish that, I will definitely end up being fascinated.

  86. 137 Posted by 71 on 16September 17, 2012 at 1b4:45 pm 40 381Hi Donna…this sounds like a great system…I’ve tried a lot of different things over the years…and know that nlp can be very powerful as can hypnosis. I have used a system of high tech meditation for years and wouldn’t be without it. It’s great you found a system that helps with overwhelm. I’ll definitely check it out. Thanks.Celeste Smucker recently posted..

  87. I fully agree! Why is there so much hype over these? The taste was indeed pretty good, it picked up in flavor after the 1s third, but that draw… man, that was trying to suck in a golf ball through a straw. The cigar produced very little smoke, so it was extra work keep puffing on it trying to discern some flavor notes. IMHO, the best way to try Cameroon wrappers is to get an Oliva Serie G cigar. It would also be about 1/3 cheaper if not more.

  88. Hey, Mr. Neologista (Dr. Neologista?), I think your fingers just generated a good one inadvertently — “quantum informatino” — the smallest indivisible unit of quantum information? smallest unit of quantum research, perhaps? Sounds like a massless particle.–Rod, Neologista Manque (yes, I read Anu Garg)

  89. After going over a handful of the articles on your site, I honestly appreciate your way of writing a blog. I saved as a favorite it to my bookmark website list and will be checking back in the near future. Take a look at my web site too and let me know how you feel.

  90. I would implore anyone thinking about it, not to go.You know, even if they dropped the price from €18 to €5, I still wouldn’t go again. Utter rip off, I was really frustrated. Just glad I had an outlet to vent my frustrations, thanks to culch.ie

  93. Здравствуйте,Аня!Спасибо за теплые слова.Ничего страшного в самостоятельных путешествиях нет, совсем наоборот!Успехов Вам и приятных путешествий!

  94. We've spent the better part of 60 something years apologizing to the world – you know, for stuff like the massacre that wasn't in Jenin, the non-shelling of Gaza beach, the starvation that wasn't in Gaza, for not killing the Al-Dura boy, for the not-bombed UN school. Isn't it time we start apologizing for real stuff, like helpfully and publicly showing Egypt and Turkey where to shove it?To stay on topic, I'd like to apologize for the delay in coming back to haunt your comment section. I've been busy:

  95. I discovered your blog site on google and check a few of your early posts. Continue to keep up the very good operate. I just additional up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader. Seeking forward to reading more from you later on!…

  96. Dag douce Deuce. Ik zal je missen. Ik kwam je al 10 jaar tegen op straat, bij feesten, thuis of in de politiek. Jij hoorde bij Astrid. Oh wat zij gaat jou missen. En wat ga ik jullie vertrouwde koppel missen: hond en bazin in mijn buurt aan het lopen, praten, ontdekken, organiseren, lief hebben.

  97. I love this Ken…. Just talked with Tony this morning and he was so excited about New Orleans…. Can you believe that this guy builds swimming pools too? It’s amazing how much fun Carecraft members are having and that people actually pay them lots of money to do what we all love to do….. I love this industry and I love being a member of Carecraft…. Thanks for posting Ken…

  98. Hiya, I am really glad I’ve found this information. Today bloggers publish just about gossip and internet stuff and this is actually irritating. A good website with exciting content, that’s what I need. Thank you for making this website, and I’ll be visiting again. Do you do newsletters? I Cant find it.

  99. I'd rather not speculate on saying doom that hasn't yet occurred. Just as WW1 and WW2 involved derailments based on too many people predicting what should have happened because of the past — but didn't because entirely new and different devolutions occurred –, let's not get trapped in that same pattern this time around. Once again, I'm optimistic and pessimistic about precisely, and grandly, different scenarios than seems to be the Anti-Islam Blogosphere.

  101. sempre la stessa storia di giornalisti incompetenti che scrivono ca**ate pur di avere un minimo di visibilità. Andare contro gli Americani ormai è di moda, basta pensare a tutte le teorie complottistiche che girano per la rete. Ho trovato gente che ha il coraggio di affermare che le missioni spaziali sono inutili perché prima bisogna risolvere i problemi sulla Terra -.- ma che vadino in quel famoso posto -.-

  102. Dobrý den,mÄ›l bych zdvoÅ™ilý dotaz: jaké jsou námitky proti použití nerezových drátÄ›nek jako náplnÄ› deflegmátoru?

  103. Cries of, "Off with her head" are premature. Let's see if she votes against cloture. Her committee votes don't mean a thing. There are already more than the 51 votes needed to pass the public option in the Senate. The crucial vote concerns stopping the Republican filibuster. As long as she sticks with the party leadership on that point it is ridiculous to replace her with a Republican in the next election. If she joins the filibuster than by all means she should be replaced.

  104. I really love these, but I would also like to see them as an actual website. A few of these I would think the load time would be horrible because of how image intense they would have to be… It’s not a bad thing, you just have to think about it when designing a layout…

  105. oh, by the way, Sangeet, you did NOT attain the post as City Attorney by opposing Sheela’s deceitful and dangerous actions,. Quite the opposite, you just puckered your lips and smooched her tiny tush quite thoroughly. With or without lipstick?

  106. GLAUCO:Como já foi dito o que importa na jogada é o dinheiro. Com certeza daqui para o dia 4 março essa convenção coletica de trabalho vai sair, caso contrário ambos perderão.

Quem vai querer deixar de ganhar uma doleta dessa????

  107. my earliest memory is from 1 to 2 years old, getting a bath in the kitchen sink by my gran, standing up naked & laughing as "everyone" could see in through the kitchen windowremember most if not all of the blogs although not "hot north african sex"

  108. What i do not understood is in reality how you’re now not really much more neatly-liked than you might be now. You are very intelligent. You understand therefore significantly in the case of this topic, produced me individually believe it from so many varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t interested except it is one thing to do with Woman gaga! Your personal stuffs excellent. Always take care of it up!

  109. Oh wow. Now I’m choked up. Which is not an unusual occurrence when it comes to these books. But still. I know EXACTLY what you mean when you say you read them when you needed them. It’s as though that experience leaves a mark on both you and the book. It doesn’t lessen with time.If you do get the tattoo, be sure to share a pic! Literary tattoos rock.

  110. As someone who has known you for a while, I just want to say coratgns!! I remember when you were much bigger and I remember the pain you went through and how sick you were! You look awesome! I can’t wait to see how you keep progressing!

  111. By June 29, 2006 – 8:18 amBooxter does the same searches — there are something like 30 different databases that it uses to gather info. And it can work with an iSight camera or barcode scanner to scan the UPC of a book.I’m just not sure about having my library listed on someone else’s site. If I build it myself on my site, I get the ad revenue for it, and I don’t have to pay a fee, which is pretty compelling.

  112. Tämä on kyllä paras sisustusblogi ikinä!!! Paljon ihanampi kuin useimmat sisustuslehdet, jotka esittelevät pääosin kliinisiä klassikkohuonekaluilla sisustettuja näyttelykoteja. Kiitos, että esittelet meille lukijoille näin paljon erilaisia koteja joka ikinen päivä. Kiitos!!!!!

  115. Laura, she’s 6 years old than her oldest younger sister. Her parents probably weren’t at a point in their lives where they could take care of her. It’s not about rejection, it’s about wanting what’s best for her. 6 years is a long gap, so it seems like obviously they got their acts together and planned their next children to avoid the pain of adoption.
