Blogging Update: There is no Update
Sorry I’ve been slacking on the blogging front as of late. I’m currently in the midst of searching for a new apartment, and it’s been about as much fun as a rectal exam. Needless to say it’s been taking up a lot of time and it’s not going quite as smoothly as I had hoped. I mean, like anyone in the market, I’m just looking for the perfect fit. Good neighborhood located near “stuff,” close to the subway, includes heat/hot-water, hardwood floors, and has a gold plated bathtub. You know, the basics.
Moving on, I don’t really have much to say today, but since this is a fitness blog, I’ll just leave you with an exercise you should be doing, but aren’t.
