What a Difference 40 Minutes Make

Yesterday I was all crabby and bored and a little depressed. If you read my post about jobs you won’t be surprised to hear me say that. The job situation was kind of incidental to my crankiness. My real problem was caused by two things: lack of exercise and bad carbs.

You see for at least the last month or so we have been getting up at 6:00 AM and doing 40 minutes of cardio. We had spent years of trying to do it after work in the evenings, but given our schedules that never ever worked for us on a regular basis. Now we go about 5 times a week and my body has really gotten a bit addicted to it. If I skip a morning I get cranky during the day, pure and simple. And yesterday was one of those days that I skipped. And on top of that my lunch was a little carb-heavy. And not the good kind but the bad kind (can you say Little Debbie?). So I was on a double-whammy downward spiral of self-loathing and cantankerosity.

Today I am back on track and feeling great. I still don’t know what I will do about my career, but thanks to 40 minutes of cardio the future doesn’t look dismal.

    Hey Tom,

    You have got to learn to leave Little Debbie alone. She only gets you into trouble.
