Portland is often wet, and dark– it’s a place that breeds book reading and contemplative (mellllllllllow) living.
I like to cook and to EAT.
The combination of a “mellow food lover” is really making me soft and pink and round….
I put a stop to the madness a few weeks ago.
I have been going to the gym for years now- but, usually without any kind of ferocity.
Through the years i’ve developed a gym strategy of “socializing avoidance”: I like to keep quiet, I keep my eyes averted. I don’t need to talk to bulging bros. I like to sweat in peace.
But- well, I’ve been pumping iron every day for the past few weeks. People are saying “hi” and they know my name.
But I am feeling good.
