Dag Drieëntwintig

This is the DVD that I'm experimenting with.

I tried to expand my horizons a bit today. To do so, I popped in an exercise DVD that contained a guided Chi-Gong session. It was interesting. I was left with two impressions after my session was complete.

#1 - I'm glad no one was here to see me perform these moves. I can only imagine how ridiculous I looked. Whatever the opposite of graceful is ... that's what I was.

#2 - I think Chi-Gong is Chinese for, "Let's confuse and torment the white man".

Having said all that ... I think I'll keep at the Chi Gong. If nothing else, it's got to be character building. Right?

Harry, I had some sausage patti links myself today, Jimmy Dean came to the rescue to revitalize me.. I just couldn't put up with a SALAD any more !!

Harry, whats your goal weight again? I know you told me once, but it escaped me. You weigh 230 pounds at 5'11 is that right? Are you doing any kind of exercise, weight training?

Harry said...

Howdy, Bayoubabe. We all need some variety!

Hallo, Vadim. I think my goal weight is probably somewhere around 180 - 190.

I'm about 230 lbs and around 5'11.

Exercise-wise, I've been pretty sporadic. I should be doing more. I do occasionally walk on a treadmill. I pump my arms to get a better workout and in order to look even more ridiculous than I otherwise would. :)

I did some Chi-Gong earlier today. I recently got a DVD that provides some guided instruction on how to do that. I thought it might be good for relieving some stress.

I don't currently do any weight training. I did some a long time ago. But, not much in recent years.

Harry, you should have seen the way I looked when my ex-girlfriend made me practice some of the camasutra youga or whatever else its called. It was supposed to spice it up bedroom majic and make us bond closer. Let me tell you something, your experience with Tai Ching or whatever its called was child's game compared to mine. I did bind that night, alright, but it was my head bonding hard with the headrest of my bed. And that bonding still hurts, forget about how I looked. And unfrotunately i wasnt alone! so it could always be worst my friend! I should do a post on that memory, it was actually very funny! Thanks God I am still able to bend after that experince!
