Oh, that felt good.

I swear, I sat in the same chair for hours today.  Didn’t take a break to get a drink of water.  Didn’t eat lunch.  Just worked on getting this blog set up and going.  By the time 4:30 rolled around, I probably put in close to an 8-hour day working on figuring this stuff out … going through the help section, reading about how to “go from zero to hero” in the blogosphere, picking my way through uploading a photo of mine and figuring out how to post it with some text so it looks decent.

I’m just too dang picky.

I was feeling like a zombie by the time 4:30 rolled around.  I grabbed my youngest son, the hoops junkie, and headed off to the rec center to lift some weights and blow off some steam.

My workout consisted of the usual:  rode the stationary bike; worked on my abs (and, boy howdy, they sure need it); lifted with my boy on the incline bench in the free weight area; went to the weight machines and worked on my shoulders, chest, arms (bi’s and tri’s).  No, the photo with this post does not represent the maximum effort I put in on the weights!  Come on, now!

Meanwhile, out of the eight TV sets along the wall in the weight/bike/treadmill area, about six of them at one time or another had something on about Joe Paterno and the Penn State football program’s sexual abuse scandal.  That got the blood pumping as well.

I lost my job two weeks ago tomorrow.  Joe Paterno just lost his.  At least he’s got a good retirement plan, I’m sure.

But, hey, the workout’s done.  I feel refreshed.  I really need to do this more often.  As long as we can keep our family rec center membership going!
