“My optimism wears heavy boots and is loud.” – Henry Rollins

Was going to post an image of Mr. Rollins up here, but that’s just too much handsome to deal with right now.

Let’s have a chat about coffee. I drink it. Everyday. Black with some full fat coconut milk. I enjoy the smell, the ritual of making it – of drinking it. I thought perhaps I should look into whether or not my love for the bean is playing a role in my disrupted sleep pattern. Thanks to social media I stumbled up, Coffee and Hormones: Here’s How Coffee Really Affects Your Health.  I read it thinking it would probably make me want to cut back more than I already have.

The ‘Iron Scap’ regime should be called ‘Angry Scap’. I am unsure of the particulars of each movement (which is problematic for a detail-oriented mind) and that much band work brings me back to my globo gym days, which I did/do not enjoy. I am sure there is some profound metaphor for life in this little snapshot; how I just want to do the fun things (barbells!) not the accessory work that will actually lead to improvement. But I still don’t want to do it. I got to the Tiger Walks and said fuck it. Then I went to Whole Foods in my “Reebok CrossFit” apparel and felt obnoxious.
