Another Short Update
The last week. Thank God. Of course the days just crawl by. Part of that is just wanting to get the hell out of here, but it doesn't help that I've given all my work to my replacement. Now I just sit here and wait for him to have a question and clean out my desk. Maybe I'll work on some longer blog posts.
One thing I haven't done is give everyone an exercise update. You know you care. The good news is that I won't do the usual day-by-day bit. I haven't been doing much bike riding lately with everything else going on, but I have been doing a lot of stairs at work. Between runs to the cafeteria (four floors) and using the john two floors below my office, I'm climbing anywhere from 18 to 25 floors of stairs a day. I'm also still doing the whole Tibetan Rites thing, working my way up towards perfection (21 reps of each of the five rites). I'm currently at 11 and plan to move up to 12 next Monday. I had hoped to be a lot closer to 21 by now, but I got seriously stuck at 9. Just one of those things. Like I've said before, they don't seem to do much, but I keep noticing little bunches of muscles sticking out here and there that I haven't seen since high school, so they must be doing something.
Now if I could just stop stuffing my pie hole and lose a little weight, I'd feel more prepared for Arcosanti. But I love stuffing my pie hole more than (almost) anything else in the world, so it's going to be tough. I need to lose about 50 pounds, but there isn't any way I'm going to even try to drop that kind of weight in less than 60 days. Half that would be nice. Ten pounds would be nice. I would even view not managing to gain between now and November 5th as a step in the right direction. And I'm just rambling now, so I'll shut up.
