Off to an early Christmas with my folks. They’re out of the country in December, so we’re doing an early Christmas thing.
It’s the usual “leaving town” mental checklist today: it’s no reason to go crazy with food, I won’t be exercising so be doubly food-attentive, stay active even if I’m not working up a sweat.
At some point over the year I came to the realization that exercising when away from home just does not work for me and I’ve stopped packing, like, half a suitcase of extra stuff. It just results in me getting mad at myself. And trying to figure out sweaty stinky exercise clothes when you’re living out of a suitcase or in somebody else’s home is just horsepuckey.
Oh, and here’s a step towards the podcast revamp: 1-833-JERKPOD. That’s 1-833-537-5763. Give it a try! It’s going to be a “tip line” kind of thing.
It will also be a whispery “Jerkpod on the roooooaaad” for the next few days. Not my favourite either. But you gotta do what you gotta do…
