2006.0807.2250::Apparently Lust is no longer my favorite of the Deadly Sins.
Over the course of the day, I have ingested:
- 1 bowl of Raisin Bran with Vanilla Silk soymilk.
- 3 cans of Sprite
- 1 can of Barq's Root Beer
- 2 fun size Milky Way Bars
- 2 fun size Twix bars
- 2 slices of Papa John's pizza with black olives
- 1 slice of Papa John's pizza with sausage
- 3 fun size packages of Skittles
- 1 egg-and-bacon salad sandwich
- 1 liter of water
- 1 combo order of Kalbi & Vegetable Dumpling Tofu Soup
- 1 kid size Honey Ice Cream with Butterfingers from Marble Slab Creamery
- 1 Vodka Tonic
While I'm tired as balls, I'm going to do some Kinetic
You were off to such a good start!
What do you think of Kinetic? I've been contemplating picking up a copy.
I'm of two minds about it--it's certainly motivating enough to get me to run through the exercises (I forgot to exercise last week on Sun/Mon, and the virtual trainer asked me where I was...). I'm not sure I'm getting enough resistance or anything like that (but then again, I got it specifically for the aerobic possibilities). The exercises themselves, are actually kinda fun, when the Eyetoy is working right.
One major problem that I've been having is that my apartment is pretty dark, so the sensitivity of the Eyetoy is rather wonky. I find myself having to turn on all the lights and move some lights around to backlight me when I'm onscreen. Another major problem is that my apartment is pretty cluttered--I've got a huge couch, a huge coffee table, and not a lot of space to be doing kicks left and right.
I picked it up at Best Buy for 30 bucks (less 10% with a coupon)--All in all, I think it's worth that much.
Hmmmmm. Interesting. I share your two main problems -- dark and cluttered apartment -- but I might try it anyway. I've been trying to get a little exercise by doing DDR, and while I don't know if it's helping, for two weeks I've been managing to get out of bed early and do it, which honestly for me is more success than I've had with any other "exercise" attempt.
I think part of my problem with DDR is that I hit a wall with the music that I actually like. I end up playing the same 10 or so songs again and again. Playing the same songs incessantly doesn't exactly give me the drive to get beyond 3/4-foot songs.
Yeah, I'm kinda doing the same thing already, though I made myself try some new ones this morning and didn't do too badly. I could only do 2s at first, but I'm starting to catch on, I think.

Should I be offended that Gluttony is your new favorite deadly sin?? I guess not, since was the one who suggested the ice cream and the vodka tonic. Incidentally, the vodka tonic is still sitting on my coffee table anyway, so you don't really have to count that. Oh, and btw, my favorite deadly sin has always been Sloth ;)....closely followed by Gluttony....
MMMmmm....I'd love to have eaten that today.
Today so far= bagel and salad.
