3 Good Things (All By Myself Edition)

  1. Folded up all the borrowed chairs and tables and brought them inside from the backyard (chairs, 4 at a time, tables, 6-8 foot wooden ones) after a long day of party preparation and party on Sunday.
  2. Packed the car with, and returned all said borrowed chairs and tables from the graduation party after my noon workout on Monday.
  3. Deconstructed and folded up a 10 x 30 foot tent after my morning workout today.

I mention these solitary activities as good things because for the first time in my entire life, I’m wicked strong, man!  And more importantly, I know that I can do the physical work I set out to do. Thanks Woodshed!

And unlike Eric Carmen, I make all by myself look good.

(I have always enjoyed the part of this song that he ripped-off of Rachmaninoff.)

This is EXACTLY the kind of thing I'm talking about when I think about what it means to be FIT.

When it comes to similar physical challenges in my life (my challenges are not so much in the realm taking down a party, but rather in the realm of lugging children everywhere and picking crap up off the floors), I feel, for the first time EVER, completely confident that I am competent. Knowing how to squat properly is a very useful skill.

YAY YAY YAY for being wicked strong!

Yup. "Fearless functional movements" was its original title and it's all due to training your body to move properly AND knowing you have the strength to get the job done.

This is a very good thing. Go us!
