Bunny tweets @ShrinkingBunny. She’s not terribly consistent, but she’s there.

She follows people who have weight loss blogs that she likes and admires. There are lots of them.

These blogs are wonderful. Inspiring. Professional-looking.

Some even have their own domain name! That’s serious stuff.

There are many more wonderful blogs on these topics. Lots of people out there fighting the good fight, and doing a fantastic job inspiring others to keep slogging along the road to good health.

Bunny wants us to create a blogroll for the BunnyBlog. We are happy to do so. She is making a list.


We have another dilemma. WordPress has offered us the option of including a Tweet button on our blog posts.

For your easy tweeting pleasure. That sounds nice. We like those buttons on other people’s blogs.

Except, sad to say, no one has ever tweeted one of our posts.

We probably  shouldn’t admit that, but there it is.

Wouldn’t adding a Tweet button be pretentious? Would that be stating that we think we’re Tweetworthy?

Does the fact that no one tweets us mean that we’re NOT Tweetworthy?

That’s so sad.

Speak Up!OK, people, we need your help on two things here:

1. What wonderful weight-loss or fitness or like-that blog would you suggest we post on Bunny’s blogroll?

2. Should we add a Tweet button on our blog posts, or not so much?

We’d love to hear from you!

(But please don’t tell us we’re not Tweetworthy.)

Cranky No More

February 3, 2010

We’re so depressed.

Our favorite fitness blog is going away at the end of the month.

CrankyFitness has been a wonderful resource for great information.

A fantastic motivator.

Recommendations of other great blogs. And even more great blogs.

A connection to others who are as…well, cranky…about exercise and all those nasty things you have to do to keep fit as Bunny is.

Crabby McSlacker and Merry Sunshine brought humor and fun into our day, along with a generous helping of great information.

And now they’re leaving.

We wish them well. We wish them more than well.

And we hope to see them on blog comments along the way.

Maybe even here?

That would be so cool.

Bye, Cranky!

“Light” Reading

September 6, 2009

Light ReadingWhile waiting for Bunny’s buns to shrink (and the alarm should go off any minute now), we recommend the following to those who are interested in weight loss and healthy eating.

Cranky Fitness: Your Guide to Health, Fitness, Nutrition, Personal Development, and Whining approaches the topic from the perspective that the process is no fun, but let’s have fun anyway. The site is extremely entertaining, provides good information, and it’s nice to know that others are as enthusiastic about having to lose weight and get healthy as Bunny is.

For more good reading on this topic, check out these two posts on the CrankyFitness Blog: Weight Loss Blogs: Kickin’ Ass and Takin’ Names and Readers’ Choice: Best Weight Loss Blogs.

The Nutrition Diva: Quick and Dirty Tips for Eating Well and Feeling Fabulous is the companion website to a podcast we follow. These are the same people who do the popular Grammar Girl podcast. Monica Reinagel, a nutritionist, addresses all kinds of food-related topics, analyses dietary fads and helps keep us on the path to righteousness without being boring.
