12. Excercise is supposed to make me happy? January 19, 2010

To take my last job, I had to stop working out.  I’ve been with one trainer for a couple years and he’s excellent.  Before my last job, I could do 50 push-ups in one set and 5 pull-ups.  I used to run a 5K to warm up for my training session.

Now I’m a wimp.

Three hours in the car every day and a stressful job being the center of attack of a couple different groups, I was mentally and physically dead every night.  My trainer works in the opposite direction from my job and I wasn’t paying for a second gym membership.

My awesome win at the pool bar obstacle course in Cozumel last year – which included my sopping wet 50 pushups buzzed, and against a guy!  All that shot to hell.

I have to blog today? Ack. Need ice cream.

1. Signed the contact for reviewing federal grants. (Good news!)

2. While changing domain name servers, 500 files from my professional blog were deleted. (Baaaad news.)  Note – WordPress “export” function is NOT comprehensive.  Be warned.

3. Dug around and carefully reconstructed my blog and website. It works! (Good news.)  * Breathes big sigh of relief *

4. Surfed for “career assessment” websites and got sucked into stress-filled hell. (Bad news.)  I  let myself get suckered in and took an assessment.

Pencils ready – Which of these statements best describes you?  “Warm-hearted” or “cold-headed”?

Are you kidding me?  Blogging on a COMPASS-THEMED-BLOG, I have to state the obvious – these two are 180° apart and presented as such, makes you feel like a wuss or an asshole depending on which you pick.

And let’s be real here – where are the options for “cold-hearted” and “hot-headed”???

Compass Point – Some days are better than others.  All I know is that some days it takes an awful lot of work to make very little progress.

8 down, 352 to go.

The Sesame Street Word-of-the-Day is “Frustration.”

Yes, I want to do a page with the Social Media elements I discussed yesterday.  However, the mechanics are making me crave chocolate or something as equally attitude adjusting.

The specifics are tedious and boring.  But despite the fact that I pay for hosting 2 sites and have free WordPress sites, I apparently can’t get a 3-column blog-style template for my http://www.myname.com site without either 1) writing the code myself or 2) paying more money.  <vent removed for editorial courtesy>
