My second post inspired by Amanda at Running with Spoons and her Thinking Out Loud Thursdays.
Away we go!
– I am so tired today. Sometimes short weeks feel longer than normal 5 day work weeks. Anyone else feel this way?
– What are your thoughts on Tinder? My office has 3 other people here. And they’re all married and 15+ years older than me, not ideal for setting me up, ha. I’m not a church goer and I’m trying not to meet guys at bars anymore – because I frequent the same couple of places and that will get awkward! But I’m on the fence about Tinder….
– Oh wow, so a client of ours got some press over something we wrote, crediting the work to someone else. We contacted the press (and our clients) and the client is PISSED and is acting like we’re the bad guys because we want to set the record straight. Isn’t it bizarre how some people are so good at making their negligence seem like your bad move? Is that just a natural defense? Ha, maybe dealing with this is why I’m so tired today!
– I meet with the surgeon today about my incisional hernia. The antibiotics have healed the wound so it’s not really bothering me right now and I’m hoping that my general practitioner just mis-diagnosed me. Fingers crossed! I’m really wanting to run this half marathon at the beginning of August and I’m afraid this surgery, minor as it probably will be, is going to kick me off my game.
Today’s random facts are Random Fitness/Health Facts!
1. If you do not exercise regularly, by the time you are 65 years old you may experience as much as an 80 percent decrease in muscle strength. Damn. I am 31 and I will maintain!!
2. Fidgeting can burn about 350 calories a day! Makes me feel not so bad at my desk job 😉
3. If you had every single muscle in your body work together at the same time, you could lift about 50,000 pounds. How did scientists come to this conclusion?
4. If you’re always in a bad mood, then getting fit just may help. Regular exercise can enhance mood and overall well-being. This is so true. When I was using my spare time to party I was happy while partying but not when I was sober. Now that I’ve limited my drinking and I work out 6 days a week I am in a much better mood consistently.
5. People who cross-train with a variety of exercise are more fit and less injury-prone than those who exercise using only one or two exercise modalities. This is why I’m always switching it up! And I appreciate that P90X, T25, etc have different monthly schedules so when I’m on those programs my body never gets used to one thing.
