I just spent the last 45 minutes or so working out, and I'm writing this post while cooling down. In a while I'll be taking a nice, refreshing shower, after which I'll probably be spending an hour so hitting my books, then off to bed.
Before I went on leave, I told myself that I'll be making the most of this time and get into shape, in addition to studying. So far I seem to keeping that promise to myself.
It's hard to keep in shape nowadays (unless you count round as a shape you're happy with). It always seems as if there's never enough time to exercise. Unless you make it of course.
Well, I hope to hit two birds with one stone the next few months or so. If I don't succeed in the other one (though I hope I do) at least I'll be physically fit, and with any luck I'll be able to get rid of my protruding gut, hopefully before I start considering liposuction (assuming I can even afford it). Its small consolation, but like they say, health is wealth.
Sometimes I envy those rich celebrities...okay, not sometimes, but all the time. :-) It's easy to be healthy and look good if you have the dough. You can hire personal trainers and dieticians to make sure that you exercise and eat right. If you're a poor slob like me, you're your own personal trainer and nutritionist. In my case, I seem to be doing a piss poor job of it. Add to that my recent binging on caffeine and nicotine in an attempt to stay up longer hours and to keep my alertness levels up. While it works, thus helping me burn both ends of the candle, I've only succeeded in giving myself the occassional shakes. Oh well. We can't have it all now, can we?
I think I spent enough time cooling down, and its about time I hit the shower. I guess that's it for this installment in the boring saga known as Ronald Allan's life.
Sometimes I ask myself why I even bother doing this. And then I forget, then write an entry anyway. Oh well. :-)
