Day 710 of 365 More.

I’ve been saying that I needed to work out more for weeks. But I’ve put it off. Now Jammy Jam is fast approaching and I feel like a disgusting slob. I was telling myself tonight that I had to work out but then I had a lot of comic strip stuff to do, and I’m going to have a hella busy week so I didn’t want to not do that.

But I needed to do a 365 for tonight too. So I combined. It wasn’t a big workout, maybe 10-15 min of weight lifting, but i figure it’s better than nothing.

Still, I really need to pick things up.

Day 669 of 365 More.

In some ways I miss last year. This time last year I was unemployed and looking for work. Looking for work only takes so much time out of your week, so the rest of the time I spent working on photography and working out like I was in prison.

I was in great shape.

I’m not anymore. I’m fat and flabby and generally just not comfortable in my body. I spend most of my day at work and most of my evenings working on the comic strip or the podcast. It doesn’t leave a lot of time for anything else.

Don’t get me wrong, I love doing the podcast and Hellcats is a childhood dream come true. I mean, I’d be happier with both of them if I had more of an audience, but I’m hopeful that will happen.

I just don’t much like looking in the mirror or looking at pictures of me anymore.

So I took a break tonight and did some weight lifting. I don’t really feel like I look any better, but it’s a start. I need to work on the strip some more tonight, but if I can do that and still convince myself to get up early tomorrow, maybe I’ll put in 30 min. on the elliptical.

It’s time to bring sexy back one more time.
