I’m still being bad about posting lately. I think I’m going through my hermit crab stage. I do this once and a while. Not sure why but I’m feeling a need to withdraw a bit from life. I suspect there may be a bit of depression and fear over the unknown (e.g., waiting for Performance Review to be done, waiting for visa/green card options, moving to L.A. and still having to purge, etc.). I’ve been trying to get out of the dool-drums by working out and that’s helped some but I need to work on it more. One of the big things, I suspect, is still diet. I’ve found that when I eat healthier, I’m definitely happier and more outgoing. Add exercise to that and I’m golden.
I did get the Power90 Videos and have to admit they do work (if I do them — consistency will be key). Amazing how a decent workout with resistance bands does more for me than I used to be able to do with free weights. And the bonus? I can do these in my hotel room or before a class starts (at least the ones that start at 10am). If I can be consistent with these for a while, I should see continued gains. And I’m hoping by the time I’m in L.A., I’ll be fit enough to move up to the P90X series. That should be enough to keep my body fit. The key is that I don’t want to be skinny. BMI suggests I should be 119lbs.
A toothpick, I would be.
I’m more aiming for the 150-165lbs range. The reality is that I do have a sizeable frame for my stature. I’m built like an ox or a bull (very square and if I tried, I could be no-neck athlete). I just want to drop down back to a healthier range. It’s a work in progress.
To add this, I suspect there is a bit of boredom going on and anticipation for the future. I’ve been doing a few things for far too long and I’m contemplating dropping a few sites from my moderation ability. The reality is that I’ve lost interest in those sites and have picked up interest in another: Butch Femme Planet. It’s been a while since I’ve been excited about something and I’m certainly enjoying this. While I’m not head honcho (which is fine — I try to avoid responsibility where possible), I am the geek consultant. And I am enjoying it (even if some things drive me up the wall — seriously: who makes a chat program where either all users are mods or no one is a mod!?). Anyways, it has made me contemplate that it’s time to retire my old site, MsMittens.com, and kick up another site I wanted to work on related to work/hobby stuff as well as my cigar blog. My old site has been around forever it seems but I haven’t added much to it.
I guess I need to do a virtual purge as well. I do collect things online much like I do in real life. I have this awful tendency to look at something and think, “hrmmm… I could such-and-such with you. That’d be awesome!”.
I’ll add more later tonight once I get to Vegas but for now, this will do.
