What the Heck is Cranky Fitness?
Cranky Fitness is a health blog, sort of. It was started by Crabby McSlacker in 2007, and has also featured cobloggers Merry, Gigi and Jo. Regular publishing ended in March of 2010, but the blog has been semi-resurrected! New posts come out approximately weekly, but there are over 1,000 posts in the archives, so feel free to browse. There's a search bar on the right sidebar that may come in handy.
Blog topics at Cranky Fitness include general health, fitness, nutrition, personal development, disease prevention, aging, and whatever else the authors happened to feel like whining about on a given day.
Would you like upbeat inspirational advice about how easy and fun it is to eat healthy food, lose weight, and stay in shape? Then you will probably not like it here. One of the founding principles of Cranky Fitness is: Healthy Living is a Pain in the Ass.

About Crabby McSlacker:
Crabby is so darn lazy, she didn't feel like updating her bio one more time, since she just did it for her new Life Coaching website. All you need to know about Crabby (including her secret real name) can be found on the "About" page at "Live a Little" Life and Wellness Coaching. You may want to skip down a few paragraphs unless you are in the market for life and/or wellness coaching--in which case, by all means, read 'em and see if she might actually be a good fit!
So does Crabby ever work out, or does she just whine?
Well, that depends on what you mean by "work out."
Who is "The Lobster?" And what about "Fran the Van?"
Crabby shares a happy bicoastal life with her Most Amazing Significant Other, known on the blog as "The Lobster." They have been together since 1990 and were married in Massachusetts. Crabby and the Lobster both grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, but now split their time between Provincetown, MA, and San Diego, California. They enjoy camping and touring the country in "Fran the Van," a 19 foot Pleasureway campervan of which they are inordinately fond.

Note: if you are in the publishing/entertainment field and are wondering why on earth there is not a whole line of Cranky Fitness books on the best-seller lists already, along with a reality tv show and a broadway musical, she will get back to you ASAP!
