I've Got The Straight Edge

The new job is no longer so new- almost 4 months. The results? Learning the ropes, closing in on some deals (lord willing) and less stress. Much less stress. The negs: My ass is getting fatter from sitting on it all day, I haven't been to the gym in forever, and my vices are getting much much vicier.

Well, what's a poor middle class family provider to do? It's time to get straight. Time to hit the gym every day and have the term 4:20 only refer to the time of day. I must have put on 15 lbs in the last few months and I am not pleased. Nor am I pleased by the cough I am developing and the sore throat.

It's fun to have an addictive personality... it's even more fun when you can channel it into positive results. When I was on the dole, I was hitting the gym for two hours each day. I was running 4 miles and banging the weights big time. I had all the time in the world of course. That is, when I wasn't looking for a job (and as Saint Westerburg sez: "The hardest job is finding one").

It's time to get right again. Yecch.

Does this mean you will be sporting Air Jordan's and Champion sweatshirts also? No More beer? Cases of Jolt in the fridge? Good luck -- you are a better man than me-- my gym membership is just burning a a hole in my wallet
