I think it was in Terminator 3 when Arnold used that line, “Anger is more useful than despair” Originally, I was expecting a more optimistic attitude to reveal itself after today’s run but, it was more along the lines of anger (at myself), vengeance and redemption. My non-stop jogging lasted 3 minutes today…..
which reminded me of some pictures I had used in my old chiropractic student blog. A lot of times when I felt I was getting steam rolled over in school, a useful response was to dig in, batten down the hatches and fight – fight hard. Mentally, I made like these tanks,
and fought back. I know what I’ve put into this so far and where I need to be come November 1st. I put in my prescribed (Rx) 25 minutes and started to write my blog for next Thursday, June 5th. I’m going to annihilate this last weigh in. I’m thinking of dropping a bowling ball worth of weight (16 lbs). I’m thinking there’s 168 hours in a week so, dropping a pound every 10.5 hours or so should yield a drop of one bowling ball. Actually, anything in the 240s would be cool – under 250. Smash today’s weigh in. Destroy it.
I think, 248.2 would be an exact drop of 16 pounds. Today, I thought back also to my biochemistry days. It’s not the alcohol that damages things so much as one of the byproducts of it’s metabolism. I don’t remember exact names but, I do think some of that crap can stay in the system 48-72 hours. After today’s run, I felt dizzy, sick and nauseated.
This should be an interesting challenge because the weight I took today was taken right after I woke up so, it was basically, the lightest I could weigh today. ..and 16 is a lot but, I’m not stupid. I can figure this out. Redemption is what I’m looking for.
Bare minimum is for next weeks weight to start with the following two digits …first a 2 and then the number 4 …anything after that is gravy and a 248.2 would just be beyond cool.
