I ordered steamed broccoli & green beans for sides with lunch instead of fries & corn nuggets.
Am fitblr again?
One time I went to Chicago and I made a new friend.
And when I got home to Kentucky, I told my other friend that he should start following my new friend’s blog.
Then yesterday those two friends got married.
I read this quote recently.
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
It’s attributed to Oscar Wilde, but so is a lot of stuff on the Internet. He may be second only to Marilyn Monroe.
Anyway. It struck me. Am I living? Or just getting by? Paying the bills and eating and working and working out. Is that life? Is constant scrolling through social media feeds and words on a screen really the point?
I have new goals and aspirations. Things are changing for me. For the better. As a person in his early 30s, it may be a little late for hopeful idealism but I’ve always been a late bloomer.
So for now… please accept this strong ellipsis as a placeholder while I’m away trying to figure out how to live.
- Scored a new 20# PR on push press vs. last month’s 1 rep max.
- Did a WOD version of the Army PFT and discovered another reason I am not cut out for military life.
- Ran 2 miles in 18:43. Am ready for half marathon now?
Hey… wanna run another half marathon?
— My brain just now
I had a salad for lunch.
A big salad. With lots of green stuff and some fruit and carrots and nuts and leftover roasted chicken. (I have so much leftover roasted chicken).
It’s Day 29 of Whole30. This is only the third time I’ve had salad this month I think. I expected that I was going to eat them a lot but I think maybe I’ve learned how to cook and enjoy different foods.
Anyway… I wanted a salad today and it was good and I’m sure you’re all happy to know that.
