LOL! I am actually surprised El hasn't gone off yet on a tirade about how Obama is lying about the effects of sitting and what not.
great...as an IT guy who doesnt see himself leaving the industry any time soon I love the fact that even going to the gym isnt really helping.
Uh, Mike....maybe this might help?great...as an IT guy who doesnt see himself leaving the industry any time soon I love the fact that even going to the gym isnt really helping.
my biggest problem is this stupid ****ing belly..cut back on drinking, eat better but because im behind a desk im not burning maximum calories.
**** it..im doing roids!
it sounds like we have the same problem Mike. Even when I was very active and working out all the time, I still had the gut.you got joke serv...i do plenty of crunches, plenty of side bends, im on the eliptical, treadmill and running with my dog more than enough.
my problem is JUST what I said...im not active enough at work and I sit behind this desk for hours at a time. it ends up just settling in my mid-section.
how does that work? a gov worker comes out to your house and enforces tht you do a certain amount of exercise per day? or do you have to go to a governemnt mandated facility and check in each day for workout?
I agree. Every couple years there's a new something we have to avoid or we'll die. This year it's ... sitting down. Ok.and yet.....the predictions continue to be that...on average...we will all live to an older age.
Its the imminent threat of this new sitting pandemic - it has everyone's mind focused somewhere else!uh oh. I'm immediately suspicious. Mike and I aren't locking heads and trying to crush one another.
what's up shipmate? when's the hammer gonna drop?! I can't handle the stress of waiting!!!
Wow, El, the most amazing thing just happened! I was sitting here reading and all of a sudden a childhood memory burst into my mind.Lanky, this is a conspiracy. You just didn't realize it's a Redneck conspiracy to get the liberal bloggers off their computers and outside so they won't continue to buy into the liberal blather that is drowning the interwebz and out into the real world! :eclipsee_Victoria:
I mean look at the graphics, only a redneck could come up with that.
I have read through my post and your's for about 15 minutes trying to get an idea of how that post could have possibly struck such a childhood memory. Are you saying rednecks like fire?Wow, El, the most amazing thing just happened! I was sitting here reading and all of a sudden a childhood memory burst into my mind.
It was of my dad.
It was something he did every time he cooked out on the grill.
He had this habit, you see-it used to drive me to absolute distraction-if the charcoal wasn't getting white enough fast enough, well...he...(I remember the fear now too Eek!)...he used to take the charcoal lighter fluid and squirt it on the hot coals. I used to cringe in abject terror waiting for him to go up in flames...I'd heard the stories....
I don't know why that memory popped up so suddenly like that...it just did.
Uh..I was actually trying to make a kind of subtle reference to your comment to Lanky by comparing it to pouring lighter fluid on hot coals.
Guess my attempt at clever subtle humor wasn't as good as I hoped.
