I made some modifications to popular Pinterest posts…

So after my post regarding Pinterest (which is actually by far my most viewed post – thank you for the support everyone!), I did go ahead and make a Pinterest account.  I’ve been intermittently posting things, though I’m far from consistent.  At first I tried to look at popular posts on the Health & Fitness board and repost the ones that were good, or repost them with things to look out for in the comments.

While doing this, I also took screen caps of some of the more…ridiculous, harmful or misleading ones.  I made some comments on those too.  Enjoy!

I too enjoy doing tricep extensions with 2lb weights while looking contemplative.
