[Thrifting Adventures] Ghosts of Past’s Intentions

Thrift stores are wrought with morality and mortality. Every item was once someone’s misguided best intentions, loss of interest, or change in life situation. It’s no one’s fault. Handling donations one winter years back, I once accepted a woman’s donations and the story of her daughter outgrowing them, only to see some of those innocent objects destroyed in the trash compactor hours later. At least I gave her a sense of restoring her intended honor.

[Rowing Machine] 2018: Week 24 {239.0}

Wrote something well? Drew something dandy? Recorded something rad? Programmed something perfect? Time to celebrate and call it a day with just that one? When will you work on the next one? Tomorrow, next week… never? Exercise is about continually stressing certain muscles to train them to improve. You can’t lift a weight once or row one stroke and expect results. Similarly, this is the 500th publication on Better Zombie. Only 500 reps? Time for 500 more!

[Rowing Machine] 2018: Week 23 {237.5}

How often do you consider self-correction as part of in your daily life? How often is positive yet critical self-analysis part of your weekly tasks? Once I’ve figured out how to do something, and feel comfortable doing it, I’ll try different approaches. Though I’ve experimented with different rowing forms in the past, this week is focused on one topic: sleep. Can I stick to a regular sleep schedule to decrease fatigue and increase rowing performance?

[Applied Self-Confidence] World’s Best You

I find I lack self-confidence most when I’m considering my recent mistakes, historical errors, and avoidable wrongdoings. In those moments, how do I- we- press on? What if there were one guaranteed “thing” that you were better at than anyone else? That despite adopting professional or personal personas, it’ll be so true you could never fail at being number one doing? No one else can be better at being you… than you! Now proceed confidently!

[The Story] Years of Adversity

How many years of adversity would you endure to achieve your goals? Constant jeering, doubt from everyone you know, and a growing sense that regardless of how much effort you put into trying to overcome your current situation, survive, and profoundly thrive, carving out a niche for yourself, that it’s possible it won’t happen? John (left) and Trishna (right) will face adversity frequently in “The Story.” How will they- and we- endure to ensure victory?

[Rowing Machine] 2018: Week 22 {236.0}

My initial draw to rowing machines, and what keeps me interested, is their efficiency. Not only can doing four motions repeatedly instill lasting physical/mental discipline, they’ll also exercise most of your major muscle groups! Unfortunately, they’re not multi-tools. I’m always caught off-guard when an obscure muscle becomes sore. Though rowing is certainly a great cornerstone for anyone’s journey into weight loss, improved health, or casual warm-ups, it’s not the end-all. Which might explain the change…

[Rowing Machine] 2018: Week 21 {237.0}

The hardest mountain to climb is our internal struggle for good health. External factors can usually be resolved, diminished, or bettered. No amount of physical gear or mental training can prepare us for moments or days where summiting that internal hypothetical mountain to health and wellness seems impossible to climb. The trials and tribulations of lazy days and unsuppressable appetites seem too grand. Do we just give up? No! Real life awaits our good health.
