I am a bit confounded that its been 23 days since I lasted posted on the 70 Day Challenge I stared 35 days ago. But here is the link to the 70 Day Challenge and the link where you can find the links for all my days- hold me accountable at youtube, pinterest, and twitter.
I haven’t failed at the challenge- not all together, at least- but rather failed at the blogging aspect. Where I did fail was the past week. I admit I did not go to the gym or do any sort of physical activity beyond getting up to go to the kitchen and bringing back food to my bed. Even while I was in the midst of my appellate brief drafting, midterm prepping, resume sending, Houston interview prepping I actually managed to sneak off to the gym and get my manly sweat on. It was the trip to Houston that done that in. First I sat for hours, sleep deprived, at LAX. Then I sat on a plane for four hours. Then I sat in a hotel room for hours. Then I sat I stood in lines at Bush International, then sat for a few hours in the terminal all the while looking forward to sitting some more on the plane. Then I drove a few hours in my car from LAX to my parents home and then from their back to my home. By the time I got to the gym on Monday my muscles were numb from all the sitting. My normal warm up mile resulted in severe back pain. I landed firmly in the confines of my bed alongside Mr. Tiger Balm, Tylenol extra strength pain reliever pills and two whole garbage bags worth of carbohydrate and pure white glucose (the other white powder…) worth of goodies.
A good 10 days worth of time that makes up what I call “THE GREAT COLLAPSE” adding to that whole spiel is the fact that I haven’t blogged about the challenge. So I promise to get my act together by back filling while simultaneously keeping up to date on present posts. I know it’s a tall order, especially since I am no James Franco, but I made this promise and I do intend to keep to it like tar and feathers, or a kid and chocolate in a candy store.
