Yesterday I began working on my Craft Along with GIY project. I am making dog beds out of end tables. The first step was to apply a coat of primer.
Just as I was finishing the second table, sharp pain shot through my lower back. I could barely stand up.
I had hurt my back painting.
Wow. I am in such poor shape, I hurt my back sitting on the floor painting.
I once read an article by a man who stated that a person's life expectancy is directly correlated to how easily he/she can rise up from sitting on the floor.
If that's true, I think I have about two weeks to live.
Seriously... I am horribly unfit. This incident motivates me even more to improve my diet and exercise. I have decided on a plan of action to help me overcome the obstacles (aka excuses).
My hurdles/excuses for exercise are I dislike gyms and I hate being outside in the sun. To overcome those, I will work out at home. As a starting point, I have purchased an exercise bike.
My hurdle for diet is I hate to cook. For me, cooking is far more trouble than it's worth, and the result is terrible no matter how hard I try. So I end up eating frozen pizza and fast food. In an effort to improve my diet, I'm going to try a meal delivery service.
Hopefully, I can discipline myself to stick to the plan. I never again want to be in this absurd situation of having to nurse a painting injury.
