My life off the couch

Here I go (gulp)…the first post. There’s a surprisingly large amount of pressure associated with this first post that no one will read. As I embark on this blogging journey the first thing to note is that I am sitting on the couch. This is a place I like to be. It can actually be embarassing at times.

“What are you up to these days?” The people will say. (Which people say this? It’s not really important.)

And I will reply, “Just chugging along.” (I always say this. As if I were a train. I suppose I am an engineer…but not that kind.) “Just chugging along. Working. You know, the usual.”

“What do you do for fun?” They always ask next. Those people.

“Nothing too exciting really. I mostly enjoy relaxing on the weekends.” And then sometimes I add a little splash of honesty. You know, just to spice things up. “I really like to sit on the couch,” I say. “I like to watch television and surf the internet.” Yes my dear, non-existant, reader, I can do all three of these things at the same time.

But alas, life is not all fun and games. This glamorous, multi-faceted life of mine does not lend itself towards sustained health and fitness. So that is what this blog will be about. My life. Off the couch.
