I’ve been swimming, I’ve been lifting weights, I’ve been doing cardio. I bike to work, I use the restroom on the first floor so I have to walk up and down stairs. I take a 30 minute walk at lunch. And how am I rewarded for all of ... Read more

The evils of entertainment.

Friday, September 11, 2015      3 comments

It’s a long story, but a year ago I cut the cable. I dropped both TV and internet in my home. If I needed to go online, I had to find a place with Wifi, like the local library. It did suck sometimes. I’d want to order a pizza, and ... Read more

I will admit, that sadly, I am a complete incompetent when it comes to money. Managing my student loan debt stresses me out to levels that will leave me tense and anxiety ridden for days. I just had to re-do some paperwork, because appa... Read more

Hitting a Wall,

Friday, August 21, 2015      4 comments

I’ve hit a wall with my diet. To put it simply, I’m sick of everything. I have always cooked my own meals. And I tend to cook a lot of food, which can then be divided into smaller containers that I can just pop in the microwave during the... Read more

I went to a chiropractor to try and help with a bizarre, phantom itch I’ve had on my arms for the last few years. He adjusted me, messaged out my muscles, etc. And I was sent home, were all Hell broke loose and everything relaxing he’d don... Read more

Monday, August 10, 2015      1 comments

There is no gym machine, no weight training routine, no Pilates class as intense as having to spend a whole weekend cleaning a massively overgrown backyard. I had to spending the weekend pulling up a forest of weeds taller than I am and s... Read more

Laziness, it can be an advantage.

Wednesday, August 05, 2015      2 comments

My plan last night was to have pizza. I fully believe it’s good to have the occasional “bad” meal in order to develop a healthy relationship with those kinds of food. Saying, “I will never have chocolate again.” Is just going ... Read more
