||CleanDay 294: Lazy Sunday||It’s a late morning — partly because it was an early morning, and then I went back to bed. I sometimes get up early on Sundays, and watch movies my wife isn’t interested in. This morning it was Colossal. I knew it was a weird indie monster movie com||10/22/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 293: Not Jealous (Honest)||It’s a car weekend. We don’t own a car, for financial reasons, mostly, but rent one from time to time. And my wife, with her women and craft brewing project, Harpy Hour, has been invited to an out-of-town beer festival. So I’m driving.||10/21/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 292: A Land of Contrasts||I am a land of contrasts… up late last night hosting a work event, so I slept in late this morning. Just getting up now. No exercise today! It’s always a rough mental calculus of “if I get up, and exercise,||10/20/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 291: Weight Motivation||Great row this morning! I do well with it as long as I follow the simple rule of no electronics (other than listening to music) before I exercise. It’s really that straightforward. When I cop out and let myself watch TV or a movie while I row,||10/19/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 290: The Work||Talking with a friend about a daily project that she’s been trying and struggling with recently. And how it ties to this one, obviously. She’s been trying to do work she’s proud of every day — visual arts — and my take on it was that it’s not||10/18/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 289: I Am The Future||Here’s the inspirational idea I’m flirting with today: I am the future. Which sounds like SCIENCE FICTION. But it’s not. It’s more the idea of doing Future You a favour, which we covered way back when. January! Day Twenty-Eight! I was so young.||10/17/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 288: Ramping back||There’s a bunch of stuff that’s gone on recently. Death in the family, and both personal travel and my wife travelling. Theft from my office. Some new developments at work that are probably actually good, but… complicated.||10/16/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 287: Church||I’m an atheist. Not one of the a*****e kinds; I’m fine with religion. Some people believe there’s a central organizing intelligence behind the universe. Some people don’t. Either one’s fine as long as you’re not being a jerk about it.||10/15/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 286: Never Drink Late Coffee||The one-two punch of drinking coffee after dinner (dumb) and some pretty junky stuff at work (annoying) have led to a truly brutal night. So I’m rocking about five hours of sleep right now, and looking at a full day due to a pretty big volunteer respon.||10/14/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 285: Alarming Problems||So I really need to figure out this alarm thing. No exercise this morning because this “wake up naturally” approach is garbage. I’ll just have to be real cautious with food. There’s another issue here, which is I’m still kind of happy to not exe||10/13/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
