You’re going to die. I was listening to an audiobook about creating the life you want that was unusually good, when this little gem came out. Okay, true. I’m going to die. The moments I have in this world are limited. So, why am I listening to this…

I got my butt to the doctor after really avoiding a proper checkup for several years. Blood pressure at the lower end of normal. Resting heart rate, same. Standard middle-aged stuff all dandy... except... Fasting blood sugar a bit elevated. Not meeting the ...

  The rhetoric around people solving health problems with a lifestyle component make me nuts. I mean like, I have to go get face down in a pool for an hour or something or I’m going to start throwing punches nuts. You see this crap it all the time. Angela…

This picture was taken some time in 1969, I think. Daddy’s feeding me. Of course, right? Daddies take care of babies. That’s what I internalized as a young child, anyway. I didn’t learn until sometime later than Daddy’s involvement in my brother, and my…

Motivation is a Feeble Reed
What has mood to do with it? You fight when the necessity arises - no matter the mood! Mood's a thing for cattle or making love or playing the baliset. It's not for fighting.  --Gurney Halleck, Dune . When I was in high school, one of the things upper class...

Warm Pool, Cool Pool
Moving to a drills then laps format for my swimming has been a good move. I know why I was resisting. I'd gotten into a groove of Long Slow Distance, and I'm like Kuzco.  I am utterly resistant to something throwing off my groove. Problem is, I gotta get ov...

I Am Ironfish
The title comes from a website called Fitocracy .  You log in, log your workouts, get points and level up as you get more points. It rewards workouts more or less like a video game.  Yes, it's for nerds. Nerds can be childish and not want to do things if it...
