Learning New Things

February 16, 2011

I don’t consider myself a very “techy” person, but thanks to the Internet, you can pretty much figure anything out! 🙂

For the longest time, I have never known how people “took a picture” of a web page–or a portion of a web page–and pasted it in their post like Kath did below:

But now I know!!

Here’s how it is done: (This is for a Mac! Can someone tell me if it is different for a PC?)

In order to take a picture the entire screen–like I did above, press:

Command + Shift + 3

To take a picture of just a certain part of the screen, press:

Command + Shift + 4 –> then drag to select the area you want


Both “pictures” were dropped onto my desktop to do what I wanted from there.

I love learning new things and am so excited to be able to use this more! 🙂


I try to avoid talking about my weight (or weight-related topics in general) because it just seems to be so controversial, but I loved Skinny Runner’s post today on how as runners, we honestly cannot eat whatever we want, all the time!!

Yes, I’ve been the one to say, “I run so I can eat”–and we can probably splurge a little more here and there–but honestly, I have to be very disciplined about what I eat in order to maintain my weight.

I’ll also be honest in saying I’ve actually dropped 5 pounds since this last summer/fall. This wasn’t absolutely necessary (I was already a healthy weight.), but it has only aided in my running.

If I compare my height to elite runners, I am now very close to their weight. I don’t want to come across as being better than anyone but just to say that in order for the weight loss to happen, I really had to be strict about what I ate. And please don’t think I developed an eating disorder or went about it the wrong way–I definitely still had 4-5 small meals a day and a daily dessert! 🙂


What was one new thing you learned today?
