[Rowing Machine] 2020: Week 04 {220.5} “Amiga Clearance A03/06”

When you sell something, you have to be physically prepared for anything that goes your way. There’s no running portion of the buying/selling transaction, however in case things get dicey, you should know your escape routes. I bought a retro computer from someone and his wife had cautioned him about selling, to which he told her that if things got dicey, he’d just let the buyer [me] have it and run. Didn’t happen; coulda happened.

[Rowing Machine] 2020: Week 03 {217.5} “Fats, Carbs, Proteins”

I haven’t been able to row consistently in weeks since these headaches have controlled most facets of my health, so I’ve had to learn to moderate my calorie consumption so I don’t become too overweight. Last year, I started counting calories, and burned off a noticeable amount of weight. Before the New Year, I started graphing out the common foods I eat along with their contents to see if they’re good for me or not.

[Rowing Machine] 2020: Week 02 {218.0} “Capturing Calorie Counts”

The biggest trap I fall into when it comes to the diet portion of diet and exercise, under the health and wellness umbrella, is accountability. Given the option, I would eat constantly, and excessively. That’s not too bad when the calories out [exercise] are more than the calories in [diet], but when it’s not, it becomes an unbalanced system. I’ve been struggling to figure out an accurate way to count my calories. I’ve found something…

[Rowing Machine] 2020: Week 01 {222.0} “2019 Fitness Review”

Looking back on this past year, I drop fourteen pounds. Last year’s resolution, if you will, was to stop eating so much “fast food” – heavily processed foods with abundant calories, excessive sugars, and other badness. I have mostly succeeded there. When I’ve increased my weight, it’s because I’ve been inattentive to calorie counting, which I started in May. When I’ve decreased my weight, it’s because I’ve counted calories. What is my fitness resolution? Keep counting!

[Rowing Machine] 2020: Week 52 {218.5} “Gift Of Health”

‘I’m tired of all these headaches, debilitating or casual.’ That’s what I thought about when I thought about this season of gift-giving, superfluous consumerism, of waste and wanton pleasures materialistic, and all the greed therein. I have everything I need. Except for reliable, stable health. I could be going about my day, whether writing or driving, and feel a pang that stops me in my tracks. I’d like those gone more than videogames or socks…

[Rowing Machine] 2019: Week 51 {214.0} “Back Into Rowing”

It’s been six days since I last rowed. Now that whatever was causing those mindbender headaches has stopped, and my health has normalized itself, I feel ready to get back on and row again. I’ll start slow, but I’ll start again. Despite seeming easier, not exercising just leads me down paths of overindulgence, binge-eating, and finding suboptimal ways of dealing with life’s stresses. I feel sluggish. I feel unhealthy and weighed down physically and mentally.

[Rowing Machine] 2019: Week 50 {217.5} “Rower Collecting Dust”

It was nearly two weeks since I last rowed. Somewhere along the way, during my writing of A Story About Self-Confidence: What’s In A Name?, a month~long story at Eville Medical in the Sammohini Arc of “The Story,” I picked up disparately severe headaches, some disquietingly lasting several days or weeks. I felt the subtlest pangs of tension against my neck and spine rowing just now, but where’s the gain without pain? Well, right there.

[Rowing Machine] 2019: Week 49 {213.5} “Celebratory Victory Eating”

Whenever we accomplish something, we always throw a party, have celebratory foods, and live it up. What if, instead, we celebrate just as we do when we normally would, with a bit of fanfare, some appreciation for doing a job well done, but not as much of the celebratory binge-eating that causes all sorts of physical and mental problems long-term? We can still enjoy the celebration, but having a sugary cake isn’t all that necessary.

[Rowing Machine] 2019: Week 48 {214.0} “Don’t Stuff Yourself”

The easiest way to not stuff yourself at any buffet, family gathering, or social party is limiting the amount you eat. If you only eat one plate, careful not to pile that plate with enough food to feed yourself for a week. If you only eat for a certain amount of time, careful not to stuff your face. That’s why I like counting calories. It’s rigid. 300 calories are calculating. You can’t turn 300 calories into 100 calories.

[Rowing Machine] 2019: Week 47 {212.0} “Least Favorite Calories?”

My least favorite food is… probably something I haven’t considered eating in years. If I’m thinking of the question for purposes outside of hahahah tomfooled, bro!, I don’t much like the taste of mint or lemon, so I tend to avoid those flavors. If your weight isn’t great, like mine, I would recommend that you avoid any foods with carbs, proteins, or fats that have insidious calorie counts, like I avoid minty or lemony foods.
