So You Think You Can Haul Buns?

One thing I know, after watching this clip, is that Ellen certainly can. Here she gets down with the top 10 finalists from the most recent season of So You Think You Can Dance. Pure love!

Haul On

If you’re looking for a reason to haul, look no further!

48A Spin To Remember: This Spinning (indoor cycling) benefit will benefit the Feal Good Foundation, a charity that helps Sept. 11 first responders and their families. Michael Grassi, a New York Sports Club Spinning instructor (and Ironman athlete, not too shabby!) will lead six 45-minute Spinning classes back to back at the Mahwah NYSC on Friday, Sept. 11. You don’t have to be an NYSC member to participate. Donations can be made online at the foundation’s site and also will be accepted the day of the event. Refreshments will be provided. For more information or to reserve your time slot — you don’t have to ride all six classes! — call the club at 201.848.0015.

Mahwah 2k9 10k race/5k run/2k walk: This run/walk event will take place on Sunday, Oct. 4, at Darlington County Park in Mahwah. Proceeds will go to Mahwah schools. Sign up online at or at

And when you’re done, don’t forget to let us know where your buns have been

Weight Watchers = Church?


Heather, one of our Haulers, just sent me a link to the awesome blog that she edits, Science & Religion Today. What does that have to do with hauling and/or buns, you might ask? S&RT recently featured an article about the ways Weight Watchers meetings resonate with their members in some of the same ways that spiritual experiences do.It’s a pretty cool idea, and it makes a lot of sense: You arrive at the meeting, weigh in and then either THANK GOD that you’re down or do penance for being up!

Just kidding — the study that S&RT cites says that WW “transforms the support group into a greater, spiritual power that engenders therapeutic aid to members struggling with their diets. The support group gives meaning to members’ at times trauma-ridden overweight condition, grants forgiveness for members’ weight loss failures, offers valued oversight and overarching guidance needed to make it through the trials and tribulations of the week, as well as casting the occasional weight-loss successes in a veneer of much-needed glamour.” Damn straight. Now someone give me a little green Bravo star for drinking all of my water this week!
