I didn’t even switch the computer on until 11 pm today. Looking at the clock, it seems that two hours have passed by in the blink of an eye. I have paid for an eBay purchase, deleted emails, read one that needed reading, read an auction catalogue (which I should have done last week) and answered the comments on the blog. It doesn’t seem like much, but going through an auction catalogue and checking some of the lots seems to take ages.
And so, I sit down to write.
I’ve been sitting most of the day, but that was in a different chair and in a different room. That has been the only variety in my day. There is a TV advert which says that laughing uses more calories than jogging. I don’t believe it, but I have watched several comedy programmes to ensure that I got some exercise. Come to think about it, I once read an article that said visualising an exercise is nearly as beneficial as doing it. I think that related to strength and there is probably some isometric effect, but I can’t help thinking that if it were true we’d here a lot more about it.
I’m going to start an exercise regime where I imagine all my food is much heavier than it really is. That way I can eat and delude myself that I’m lifting weights at the same time. If I write off to a couple of online Colleges I can probably get some qualifications to make it more believable. (Yes, I use that link before, in case you looked and thought it seemed familiar).
You may think, and I forgive you if you do, that I haven’t done much, but ask your self this question – what have you one today that is as important to human happiness? You may have been industrious (which I have not), you may have done some housework (which Julia has mentioned to me once or twice today, I admit) but have you made a breakthrough in the way we think of sandwich eating? Thanks to me, it is now possible for fat people to feel virtuous and healthy as they eat sandwiches and work their muscles instead of just their jaws.
I had a sandwich and a bowl of soup tonight, and, as a result of imagining that the sandwiches were heavy, finished my meal feeling like i’d had a bit of a workout. Apart from the exercise, think of the other benefits – no gym subscriptions and no need to shower. Talk about win-win situations.
I went back to November 2017 for the pictures.
