OMG, I can't believe I actually just "said" that. Facepalm

Are you saying that you barely managed to post it?

Perhaps, but probably more along the lines of grin and bear it. Tongue

ETA:
I decided to chance it last night and stuck with my usual running path. I just crossed the street at that same area although there are woods on the other side too and I couldn't be sure the bear didn't cross the road overnight. I didn't see the bear again though.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

The advantage of running on the same route is that you're more likely to keep your bearings.

Bear in mind, that's only true as long as I don't get eaten. Confused

I've been through about at dozen pairs of running shoes. Does that count? Smile

Atheists who work out
Returning to work next week so I started running again. Today it was one hour on stepper.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

RE: Atheists who work out
Alright. I've been slacking on working out and have been pretty much actively overeating.

I think it's time to make some sort of pact with myself to get motivated to lose about 15 pounds and work out three times a week. A little over a year ago, I managed to lose ten pounds fairly easily in around two months, mostly by drastically cutting down on nighttime snacking. I've put about eight of those ten pounds back on in the last year.

There's no reason I shouldn't be able to repeat the process. Maybe I need to force myself to publicly post progress pictures to motivate/shame myself into taking this seriously again.

My advice, not that you asked for it or anything Laugh out load ...No publicly shaming yourself. No beating yourself up. I've seen your pics, you look great already. Just do it for your health if you want to. Find an activity you love to do. Only eat when you are hungry. Find things in your diet that you could tighten up on and make changes that you can live with. Still allow yourself treats on occasion. Also there's the Dare thread and I'm sure I could think of creative and embarrassing things that could help you burn some extra calories Laugh out load

I think you've already taken a step just mentioning it here (because you know we're going to be expecting posts about your workouts and progress Tongue - not for shaming though, just for sharing). So kudos for that; it's usually the hardest part just to decide to commit. Just for the record though, I was comparing your before and after avatars it looks like you're already making good progress.

RE: Atheists who work out
Simply cutting back on evening snacking was my biggest gain (or loss) before. I just have to DO it.
