I just drank some coffee and did a bunch of push-ups.
No wait, maybe its more like this….
Whatevs. You know what I mean. (….right?)
Anyway, I haven’t been feeling so great. In the head. I thought exercise might do the trick, so a couple of months ago I started lifting weights. I’ve been liftin’ me some serious weights.
But even after ALL that weight lifting, I’ve still been feeling a little….
But its not the crazy that bothers me as much as the mud-brain. I’ve lost all ability to compartmentalize. Not that I’ve ever been super great at it to begin with.
Being an AAAAARRRRRTEEEEST! and not a person who knows about…..numbers and stuff, my Thought Categories have always been a tad non-uniform.
I’ve been getting my paintings together to photograph and print (for etsy).
They say you should start out with 8 items. Every time I go to organize the process, I have to try and remember how many paintings I have. I can’t count them in my brain. I CAN’T COUNT TO 8 WITH MY BRAINS!!!!
I’m a freaking cave man.
Give me a rock and a burnt stick and I’ll draw a picture of my dog pooping to remind myself that he occasionally needs to be walked.
I can’t function.
But then Phone-a-Friend told me she started jogging and I was all …
I mean, really. I freaked.
Its like I was hearing the world from underwater.
And things felt weird.
I’m not a jogger. None of my RIGHT HERE friends are joggers. So this was news. But she said it helped with her BRAINS!
Now, I’ve said this before (like in the last sentence) but I cannot stress it enough. I AM NOT A JOGGER. When we had to run a mile in junior high PE, I was at the VERY VERY end of the procession with the girl who had a pacemaker.
Its a cardio things for me. I hate the cardio.
But I miss my brain.
So last week I went to the gym, got on the treadmill and RAN TWO MILES.
I couldn’t believe how easy it was!?! Maybe the weights I’ve been lifting???? Who knows, but I’ve been on that treadmill almost every day since. I don’t even care if I lose weight. I just want my brain back.
(Siegfried drew Humpty and I painted him in)
I’m jogging my way to a bigger brain. If it works I bet y’all will notice…..
PS- I’m not changing any of the spelling or grammatical errors in this post JUST to prove my point.
