Sometimes, I wish people read this.

Technically, I started working out a few weeks ago. Not religiously, but that's not surprising considering how non-religious I've been these past few years. However, when I got back in Indiana for Christmas, I started hitting the pushups pretty hard. Back home, I always do a lot of pushups. These pushups are a combination of boredom and the sudden realization that I'm wasting my life. I get that way when I'm home. Very antsy. And pushups can be very motivating. They increase my energy and strength. This leads to increased confidence which leads to creation. I've always said that 40 pushups a day is the recipe for construction. Of course, I do way more than 40 right now...but I do about 30 or 40 at a time.

Now that I have the San Francisco deadline coming up, I have increased my workout regimen. Yesterday, I left work early and decided to hit it pretty hard. I worked on my arms, back, abs, and did some non-weight related leg exercises. Then I watched The Biggest Loser 2 marathon on Bravo. All that working out and watching obese people work out made me hungry, so I went to the Rally's drive-thru and got a Bacon Swiss Burger meal. I brought it home and ate it all while continuing to watch the marathon. Of course, I can eat crap like that, especially if I'm working out. I just need massive calories in any form. Don't you hate me? I'm sure those fat-asses on TV would if they knew what I was eating while watching them. Bwahahahaha!!!!

Tonight, I'm going to work on my chest. Arms and back one day, chest the next. That's the plan. Situps and pushups everyday, of course. The situps are what kill me the most. I've always hated them and have never done them at all until now. But, I've decided that it's time for me to suck it up and be a man. The problem with situps is that when you're finished doing them, your stomach still hurts like hell for another minute! However, I'm already starting to get used to them...and maybe even enjoying the pain a little. One thing I'm really enjoying are the results. They're noticeable already! I think it's because I just don't have much fat on my body, so you can see my muscles getting stronger faster. Ok, now you really hate me.

Let me try and make it up to you. Here's some free downloads of Seu Jorge, the Brazillian musician who provided most of the soundrack to The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. I recently watched this movie for the first time and thought it was brilliant. I love everything Wes Anderson has done. Sometimes, I wish I was him. Sometimes, I wish I could become invisible. Sometimes, I wish I could stop time like that girl whose dad was an alien in that 80's TV show of which I can't remember the title.
