What I Did Was Walk Too Damn Much

With love and respect to people who (like my sister) use phrases like “exercise milestones,” I did not reach an “exercise milestone” yesterday.

Then It’s Time For A Change Up

Sometimes it takes a little while to notice that the tension you’ve been telling yourself you’ve been “working out” is actually the tension you’ve been working in!

“And Neither Would You”

July 17, 2013

As soon as I posted yesterday’s entry, I knew it would only a be matter of time before somebody commented on the “lesson” they thought I might be referring to.

I just didn’t expect that time to be less the a minute.

Regardless, within a minute of posting, I received a comment of “The lesson is ‘Drink more and exercise less’?”  Knowing full well this question was tongue-in-cheek, I decided it to answer it anyway, if only to potentially save someone some (literal) headaches down the line.

“That is . . . one potential interpretation,” I replied.  “But I suspect it wouldn’t stand up if you tested it.”

Pay Attention

July 16, 2013

Today is one of those days where mobility and I are barely on speaking terms.  And no, the reason for this has nothing to do with pubs, but admittedly it is because I overdid something . . . exercise.  (I lost track of time and did more than I meant to, which just goes to show that “feeling fine” is an imprecise indicator at best in both the world of drinking and exercise.)

Let’s consider this for a moment though:

Last week I went to the pub, stayed an hour or so later than I normally would have, and the next morning I was fine and dandy, in part because the whole time I was aware of what I was doing.

Yesterday I spent a measly extra fifteen minutes exercising because I wasn’t paying attention, and this morning I can barely move.

There’s a lesson in here somewhere if you care to find it.
