The Doctor

The Smart Man was out of town last weekend, so I was on my own here at the Big Yellow House. This is an unusual turn of events, as I'm usually the one who's running all over the country while he holds down the fort.

I had plans with the Incomparable Anne™ on Saturday afternoon/evening, but I also decided to get caught up on Doctor Who. I watched nineteen episodes in three days, and I'm still not caught up. I'll probably finish Season 6 just as Season 7 becomes available on Netflix. Because that's just how I roll.

Let's Roll

Thursday is my last day at the Military Industrial Complex. My new employer is very excited to have me coming on board, which is flattering, and I'm looking forward to moving on.

That doesn't mean, however, that I'm not also looking forward to my week off between gigs, which I'll spend in San Diego with Sister from Another Mister The Mechanicky Gal. I'm sure we'll be getting into all kinds of trouble. Note to self: Make sure The Mechanicky Guy has sufficient funds for bail just in case.

My Brain is still an Asshole

Today is Day One of my re-commitment to health and fitness, and after an hour and twenty minutes on the elliptical this morning, I'm reminded that my recent lack of motivation in the fitness area is my asshole brain betraying me again. I always feel so much better after workouts that last over an hour, but the last month I've been finding EVERY EXCUSE to do less, or not to do at all. Chop, chop, asshole brain, or I'll trade you in on a new model.

It's OK to do less, providing that grunting your way across the globe on that thing isn't the only form of exercise that you get. I'll be cheering you on if you do less just as heartily as if you elliptical ran your butt daily for a marathon's worth of miles.

Remember, we bust our asses when exercising now while we can so that we don't have a miserable old age.

And yeah, I've been away from exercise myself for over a month, with the exception of long weekend walks with my walking friend. Using the treadmill this morning for my ZR5K training run felt pretty damned good again.

Stupid asshole brain.

Crossing everything for the new job! And give MG a big ol' hug for me!
