Breaking a Habit. One of the things I said I was going to do this year was to not put something up every day. I joked about it on Tuesday but yesterday was the first time I allowed a day to pass without a post.
It was really hard to do.
Consequences. As you might have noticed, the world ended: planes fell from the sky; tsunamis covered the shores; volcanoes erupted; zombies rose from their graves to devour the living.
On the downside, I had a thousand great ideas for blog posts yesterday. Each would have been a jewel of wit and fascinating storytelling combined with wisdom unlike anything found on the Internet today. They were, every single one of them, perfect post ideas.
Despite this, I persevered and deliberately broke my string of consecutive posts at 368.
The hard part over, I know it will get easier with time. Now that I know you’ll still be here, and that not everyone will add the NJ4NY IP address to their block files, I can relax.
One day at a time . . . . . . . . . . .
Other Notes. This morning I ate breakfast (3 eggs over medium, three bacon, two sausage) for the first time in a couple of months.
Two more things happened yesterday which were cool: I was able to comfortably button the collar on a 16-16 1/2 shirt for the first time in a long time; and my ring fell off in the shower. It is normally lose when my hands are soapy but it hasn’t fallen off before.
Maybe there’s something to this Primal thing. =)
Exercise. Though I said I would not make a post for each workout, I want to record yesterday’s results because it was my first totally Primal Workout:
- Two sets of five Primal movements (push-up, pull-up, squat, overhead press, plank)
- Minimal rest between exercises and between sets
|Set 1||Exercise||Set 2||Notes|

Next: same Goal: 12×2
|50||Side Squats||50||I started on side-to-side squats because I knew I could already do 2 sets of 50 standard squats.
