Working at my Stand Up Desk (plans) (Why you should, too!)

It's interesting -- when I don't workout, I have trouble with my energy levels and overall feeling of well-being. When I skip (on a trip, sick, etc.) I have more issues staying focused, waking up in the morning, avoiding general aches and pains, and I tend to get a slight runny nose in the a.m.

Even when I get lackluster sleep, am feeling run-down (no energy), or don't feel any interest in exerting myself, I always feel 1000% better after putting in a full P90X workout.

Hence today. Back in the saddle, Day 2 of a brand new round, and I started sluggish and tired. Here I am at the end, well-fed, and my body is singing a bit like a tuning fork. My brain is sharp, my limbs (legs especially) are feeling strong, and my lack of sleep last night is gone.

Thanks Tony Horton and P90X -- not to mention the entire Beachbody crew -- for this amazing gift of P90X. In-home fitness for the real-world, it works, and keeps on working, four years on for me.

And now for something complete different...

Wandering around post-nuclear war Nellis Air Force Base near New Vegas (Fallout) last eve, walked by a Mister Gutsy guard 'bot, who mutters to me out of the blue: "Once a Republican, always a Republican." Nearly lost it!

Seems the robots get all the political commentary in the Fallout series, including the Chinese Communist-hating monster bot (Liberty Prime) at the end of Fallout 3.

Hear his best lines here...
