Time to Sit Up

This is what I need to do more of. For years I thought that the way you burn fat was genetically predisposed, so that certain people lose fat in certain areas faster than others. But as this video points out, when you work a specific muscle group, the blood flow increases to that region, and since fat needs oxygen to burn, this increases the metabolism of fat in that region.

Some people eat a chocolate bar and it "just goes to their hips". Me, I'm a belly guy. But apparently I should be doing less running and more sit-ups, cause my legs are getting huge and it's because they have to carry that extra belly weight! Time for "thinking position" (not featured in this video).

The Hours

Sometimes waiting for time feels like this song.

you wait so long for a specific moment, and then it just passes you by

you feel robbed, angered

if moments lose meaning, then time all feels the same

we numb ourselves for our own protection

for a moment can gloriously majestic, but uncontainable

once you've lost someone or something really important to you, you wonder: does the losing ever end?

we are an eternal fire

you hope and wait for things to get better

stop waiting
